Mods, feel free to edit or remove this post if you guys find it inappropriate, and I apologize in advance to any who may be offended by what I say.
Spirits, ghosts, spooks, demons, however you like to call them and any I may have missed. When I was younger I believed there was a different clarification, and identity fir each one. I have seen several different paranormal events, full body apparitions of loved ones who passed on, the classic mist floating across the room, disembodied voices, item movement, physical touch, the lists goes on. As I got older I had a rather traumatic experience involving these beings. Not only did it effect me, but my mom and children as well. Me being as stubborn as I am, I refused to let these things take control and ruin my life. Everything iv ever seen through my years happened all at once, through out the better part of nearly a year. Iv always believed in God, but at this point my faith was truley being tested. Through prayer and standing tall, keeping it together for my children I began to read on the good book, bible, again looking for answers. One thing I failed to realize in my life, foolishly believing I was a strong person, the answers was in the good book. That all our loved ones are at rest, there souls were at peace. They are not moving about. All the spirits iv seen were in fact not people who have passed on, but evil, daemons, dark beings. They play with your minds to weaken us. My world was turned upside down, my beliefs were smashed. I felt foolish, ashamed and unworthy. I know I'm getting a bit off topic, but this is my take on ghost in general and what I believe them to be. They can take any form they desire.
I appreciate your spiritual approach to the subject. We all need to find what works for oneself. I tend to look at the phenomena from an documenting standpoint only. I trust only my observations and then try to rule out additional errors in judgment.

What would you like to know more about evp? The runner has been seen by most of our family tho I see him most because I'm here more. I think he's a residual energy actually. I've seen it head on out my kitchen window on the west side of the house as this black mass zoomed past. Still gives me goosebumps!!
That gives me a much better idea of the encounter. In my opinion, having others experience similar phenomena offers another layer of validation. Singular events I tend to rule out more quickly. In my opinion, much of what is deemed to be paranormal is residual or imprints. I have found very few times where there is a sense of intelligence and interaction. Thank you for the additional information dapherose.

I've lived my whole life in a haunted home. My belief is Demons are demons, Angels are Angels and Ghosts are the lost souls of humans. The shadow spirits I've dealt with have come in two types, one was just plain evil and the others have been watchers, just curious about us humans.
EVP, the only ones I've seen full on have been either white or black misty forms.
Thanks Mac in giving me a concise answer to my question. Seems you and I have shared something similar. My encounter as previously stated was a black mass but it was virtually shapeless. I suppose we should be grateful in any type of validation that presents itself. Some people never witness anything to substantiate alternative realities.
