This may not be the post to determine the existence of an afterlife, but it is the post that might make you start wondering. While many religious people believe that there is for sure something more than what we see on this plane, plenty of others have had to question their understanding of reality after a loved one has passed. Because sometimes it seems like the spirit of that loved one comes back.
Twitter user @Vandalyzm tweeted a story about what could be a ghost, writing, “My daughter is currently giving my grandmother, her great grandmother a tour of my parents’ new home. My grandmother passed in 93.”

So great-grandma moved, too? It’s good to know that you won’t end up haunting whoever takes over your kid’s lease at the end of the year. The story is also very sweet, implying that even in the afterlife, we care about our family on earth. What’s really intriguing are all the replies from people with similar experiences—either they remember seeing someone’s spirit as a child or have encountered a child who seemed to know when a spirit was present. It’s like as children, they had more of an ability to see between worlds. That is both creepy and reassuring, and some of these stories are really great:
my daughter talks to her brother all the time. he was stillborn in 2014. when she was an infant, she would lay in her crib laughing all night. they were playing.

That’s so beautiful. My oldest would talk to two ladies in white all the time when he was between 1-4 yrs old. He’d be smiling and laughing and telling them everything. I knew it was my grandma & auntie that passed before I had him.

When I was little, my favorite cousin passed away from cancer, he was in his 20’s. I used to see his ghost in our house. We would play games

My brother said our grandfather taught him how to play the piano. He died years before either of us were born. That story is also so amazing to me.

My grandfather saved my life from a tree falling on our house when I was 8. He woke me up and told me to get under the bed. I asked how he got there cause I just went to his funeral the day before. I remember this as vivid as yesterday.

When my daughter was 2 I found her under the table with one of my husband’s old children’s books, turning pages as if she were being read to. I asked her what she was doing. She said “reading with Grandma” my husband’s mother died two years before she was born. It was her book.

My aunt said her (deceased) husband woke her up in middle of the night to tell her she had to get the whole family outta the house. Everyone was dead asleep except dog who started barking after she woke up. Turns out they had a carbon monoxide leak. Her waking up saved them all.

When I was very young my dad passed away. One night after school i fell asleep doing homework. Something tickled my foot, and once i woke up, confused, i heard him say “finish your homework, baby”. Still so vivid in my memory

Grandpa died when I was 10. Missed him so much. Month of dreams where I would walk through a cemetery & then wake up. Each night I would walk further. The last night I walked to a grave and looked up and there was my grandpa. He smiled. I woke up. He walked me through my grief.

I genuinely believe babies see things we don’t. My dad died 5 years before my daughter was born. Her birthday is 2 days after his was and my mom was convinced that she was always playing with him when she would be laughing and playing in her crib by herself.
