You’ve seen them depicted in movies, read stories about them, seen television shows imitating them. But what are they really? Truthfully, no one knows for sure.
There are however, many theories to explain the thousands upon thousands of documented experiences that people around the world have encountered since the beginning of recorded history.
Ghosts and hauntings seem to be a common part of the human experience.
The common view of ghosts is that they are spirits of dead people. For some reason it is thought that they are stuck on the earth plane because of some emotional trauma. Many psychics believe that these earthbound spirits don’t even know they’re dead The spirit seems to be in some kind of limbo state in which they remain at the scene of their death. Very often these ghosts are able to interact with the living. They sometimes try to communicate their story with the living to get some kind of closure. Some psychics claim to be able to communicate with them. Occasionally, the spirit has been known to materialize, which means they can actually be seen by the living.
When psychics encounter these spirits, they often try to help them understand that they are dead and pray them to the light of their new experience.
Some ghosts are unaware that their environment has changed. A soldier maybe seen on the battlefield where he once fought.A child’s laughter may be heard in the hallway where she often played. They play the same scenario over and over.
Then there are spirits that appear after their death to people close to them. They are aware that they are dead and with the right conditions they can interact with the living and bring comfort to their loved ones. This is usually a brief occurrence and happens only once. Their sole purpose is helping the living cope with their loss.
There is another type of haunting by poltergeists. These ghosts are blamed for unexplained noises ,footsteps , and even music. They turn on faucets ,slam doors, turn lights on and off. They may be mean spirited or they may be just having fun. The living can decide if they choose to play with the spirit or not.
Most skeptics believe that hauntings are products of the individual’s mind. They rationalize them as psychological phenomena that we see because we want to. While it’s true we know little of the power of our own minds, we have to admit that it is possible to produce physical manifestations such as apparitions and noises.
So are there such things as ghosts? The phenomena of ghosts and hauntings are very real experiences. Their true cause and nature is an ongoing mystery.
