This is one thing confusing to me and I will go into detail why with an "experience" I had I will share. I would like to see what you feel about the "Paranormal", or maybe evaluate personal experiences others may post or even your own. I have never believed in the paranormal, ghost or spirits whatever you may call it. I used to watch the show "Ghost Hunters" and always thought some footage they would reveal was pretty amazing, until they blatantly faked the live special show they had a year or so ago. (it was badly faked and I can provide a youtube link if anyone is interested.) After this, I have never watched it again. I was never convinced what I have ever seen was a real Ghost etc, just intrigued by what I would see. Now for my personal "experience". I will try to make as short as possible. 2 years ago I was asked to watch my 2 younger cousins ages 6 (Aleksandra) and 8 (Anton). After playing a game, it was dark outside, I started to make a movie ready to watch (Toy Story2 I think?). Aleksandra asked if she may see if her friend could come to watch. I say yes, thinking I would need to call to her friends home to see. I turned from putting disk in DVD player and she was not there and I looked to Anton who said she went to her room to ask Anu. I walk down the hall to her room and hear her saying in tiny voice "She wont hurt you, it is okay to come see this", I thought then she was speaking to stuffed animals lol. But I ask if I should call her friends home and she says her friend does not want to see this movie. Like before I thought she as speaking of her stuffed animals and thought how cute this was. We watch the movie and is now maybe close to 10 pm and time for me to put them to bed. They wanted me to read bed time story so I did in Anton's room and both fell to sleep. I carried Aleksandra to her room and put her in her bed, went into living room and watch TV for maybe 15 minute and thought I heard a noise from one of their rooms. I walk to Anton's room first, look inside and he is asleep. Then I walk only few feet more to Aleksandra's room and notice her door is part way closed? Still I think maybe was breeze from when I walk out maybe? THEN it happened. Just as I am about to push the door open to look in I hear a very faint voice from inside saying something I could not understand, like a whisper. So I quietly look in the partly closed door and see what I can only say was shadow pass on the opposite wall from Aleksandra's bed. Still I think this is only her and I open the door and say "you are supposed to be asleep" as I walk in and see her sound asleep in her bed... I can not explain what just happened. But when my aunt and uncle return I ask of this Anu, and they say to me this is Aleksandra's imaginary friend who lives in her room, I laugh but say what I hear and see and my aunt says to me she also has strange things like this as well happen a few times...:-o I have been there many times since and nothing more ever happened, and the last time Aleksandra talked of Anu, she said she moved away maybe a year ago. I know it sounds crazy and it defies everything I believe, even today. But I can not deny what happened either and how real it all was to me. I have told this to a counselor and was told it was most likely these thing were placed into my mind during the day and night and what seemed real was in fact my mind playing tricks on me. I think this is very possible, but it makes me understand how people can make claims of Ghosts etc.
