I do find these things interesting. Have you seen the movie, the Sixth Sense? It is about a boy who sees dead people.
I don't believe in spirits until I see it, although a few things that freaked me out was the wiji board (I forgot how to spell it). When I was a teenager. my brother, sister, cousin and I were playing with the board that my cousin borrowed from a friend and we were laughing at it because we did not even believe in that. My mom also said for us not to be playing with that board and she too did not believe in that. Well, we asked it questions that we would never know the answer to like what date did my mom have her first boyfriend, the names, etc. Well it spelled out everything. We then went and asked my mom the dates and names without even telling her the answers and everything was correct. We were completely shocked. We also asked it where my nephew was. It said I am with him, grandma and him in back yard. We went to go look and they were both in the back yard. There were so many other questions and all were correct. We finally got so scared of it, we burned it and heard strange noises.
Another thing that scared me even though I never saw anything was that before my husband and I bought our first house and lived in an apartment I always used to cry because I was afraid to take a shower there. I felt like somebody was watching me. I was so scared I would go to my mom's to take a shower. At night, I don't know if it was my imagination but I would see the door opening wider and I would close it and would open again. Also, I don't know if I would forget to turn off our tap light that was in our living room or what, but I would get up to turn it off many times. After we bought a house, I never felt like that again with any of our houses. I found out later that an old lady had died there on the toilet before we lived in that apartment and they didn't find her until 5 days later.
The last thing that I find interesting is that when my daughter was born, the hospital had a cross with jesus near the elevator and she would constantly stare at it. We went back to the same hospital 1 year later and, before even walking in, she said she wanted to see Jesus on the cross. I was shocked that she remembered that the hospital had that cross with Jesus. My mom was shocked too because she was with me. She stood there and kept talking to him, etc. Again, I don't know if it was my imagination or if I was going crazy, but I saw a tear in his eye. She is now 3 years old and still talks about him.
I don't tell many people about these things because I will probably be called weird too. So now I could be weird with you.
