    Very curious about who has/has not experienced this phenomenon.

    Yes, but I'm pretty sure it's projection and concentrated thought about the person gone and missed.

    Never. Except for a couple of nights ago when my husband and I were awakened by the bed and the ceiling can above it rapidly vibrating. It was weird; although, no dead relatives made themselves known. It may be the beginnings of a haunting. I'll keep you posted on any further developments.

    I've had dreams about relatives who have died, even when they hadn't recently been on my mind. There have been at least a couple of times where I nearly dialed my aunt's telephone after she had passed away.

    Yes, until I had an exorcist come in and banish them.

    Seriously. Why do the always show up at night when you're trying to sleep and they're downstairs bumping into furniture and knocking over vases? Even after they're dead they're pains in the ass.

    As a kid, yea. I took long bathroom break to avoid family at my uncles wake, I felt like my dead uncle was in the bathroom shaming me for it I was honestly scared. Looking back at it does feel like he was there in that bathroom with me. It took a while to shake off his death and people really didn't make it better by saying he'll always be there watching me. It was a scary concept as a child, at least for me but no. I don't buy into the supernatural now because of how haunted I was as a kid, it was all in my head. I live next door to a graveyard these days.

    Yes, during the first 6 months after my first partner died. At least twice when I believe he may really have intervened, if such things are possible. The stories are long, I've told one of them here before.

    Yes. After my grandfather died there were times when I would pass by a mirror and it was like I'd see my grandfather's eyes peering out at me. It was eerie, because I never saw a family resemblance before, yet it felt like he was there, inside of me.

    I agree with tazzari that this is all in my head. It's a strange feeling of melancholy and comfort to know that when people die they can seem closer to us than ever. I think that's because they take a special place in our thoughts, where they are immortalized.

    yes, and on the day of her viewing I had sleep paralysis and in my dream it was my friend that passed away that was choking me.

    No, never. I certainly miss my parents, my grandparents, and some other family members, and I have regrets about missed opportunities while they were alive, but I have never felt a presence -- just a sadness that they're gone, and a heart-felt wish that they were still here.

    Conformance theory and false belief systems can cause lots of mental effects.

    If you wanna' believe fine, but, anyone that has truth-based beliefs isn't going to buy it.

    Yes. I smell my great grandparents' perfume and cologne. I was very close to them. Wish I felt my mom, though. Wish they were here to give me courage to come out.

    When I was awakened from my coma, the first thing I asked my mom was, "where's grandpa?" (My mom's dad had passed away about five years before my accident. He had helped raise my brother and I while my parents were working.) I had honestly felt like he was with us the whole time. It was a totally different feeling than dreaming about someone--I felt his presence.
