Kate has claimed before that she and mom Goldie Hawn had encountered a ghost. She later explained what her supernatural experience was like: "It is not really seeing [a ghost], it is feeling a spirit. A fifth energy. I believe in energy. I believe our brains can manifest into visual things. When you see something, you are supposed to tell the energy what year it is and that they don't belong there. Then your brain is freaking out on you, you may have to remind it. "
