1. Spirits have the ability to effect you mentally, physically, and emotionally
No one ghost is the same as another. Each spirit has the ability to do various task depending on the level of strength they have accumulated. Though not common, a spirit does have the ability to physically attack you. A ghost might also have the ability to effect you emotionally with things such as unexplained extreme mood swings. An extremely advanced spirit can even manipulate you mentally and challenge the reality that surrounds you.
Over the course of my paranormal journey I cannot count the number of inanimate objects that I have seen moved or thrown without a natural force or explanation. I recall one time on an investigation, an item was thrown off of a stove by an unseen force directly at another investigator and myself. Spirits have the absolute ability to manipulate inanimate object. Depending on the strength of the spirit, it is possible for doors to be opened or closed, items to be thrown, items to be moved from one place to another, and even the manipulation of electrical lights. There really is not set limitation to what a spirit can physically manipulate.
Due to the widely broadcast shows about the paranormal field, there has been a large amount of “demon” hysteria that has taken root within the minds of those who watch these shows. I want to go on record now as saying yes, things do exist that some would classify as a demon. BUT let’s take a minute to evaluate the term “demon”. No matter your respective beliefs, the word “demon” was coined as a religious term to describe those inhuman things that battle against good and are theorized to come after our humanly souls. Like many deviations in the English language the term “demon” doesn’t simply cover everything evil and sinister in the world. I personally believe an individual who murders or hurts children is evil, but that doesn’t make them a demon. When a person dies, whether they are a rapist, murderer, or saint; who they are in the moral guidance of life does not simply transpire to angelic nature because they have now died. To put it simply, someone nasty and sinister in life will be nasty and sinister in death. This doesn’t make the ghost a demon, but essentially reflects the person is the same level of bad in death they were in life. With all of this being said, please be aware a true demonic haunting is extremely rare. Most of you reading this have a better chance at winning the lottery then being attacked by a “demon”. Demonic haunts are not simply removed or cast away, these entities have no restraint of time and will wait in order to reek terror and disaster through a families entire lineage. There are many “demonologist” that certify themselves as ready to take on any demon, but truthfully if they came across an actual demonic haunt they would run in the opposite direction. What’s a good rule of thumb? If what you are experiencing is not beyond and more extreme then what you have seen on TV and on the big screen, then you can bet you are just dealing with some type of ghost.
There are many scientific theories within the paranormal field as to why places are haunted and why some places are more haunted then others. I could not write a simple small answer to give any of these brilliant minds the justice they deserve for their theories, so I will offer what I will classify as my own personal belief. I personally believe that locations which experience a large amount of death or birth disrupt the natural balance of energy in the world which we all live. Basic elementary science, energy of any kind is neither created or destroyed. Energy is transferred or moved. Locations such as hospitals, battle fields, and sites of horrific deaths emit a lot of energy into the world we live in to go “beyond”. This energy being so concentrated in one spot easily explains why places with a high volume of deaths or births have an extremely larger amount of spirit activity.
5. There is no proven reason why ghosts are here or reach out
If you believe everything you see on TV and the big screen, then you will also believe that spirits are here because they have unfinished business or are simply angry to the injustice done to them in the world. I am going to take a small moment to throw a huge monkey wrench in all those claims. Why are spirits still here and making contact with us? Well the answer isn’t as black and white as you have been lead to believe. Sure, some ghost might be hanging around with unfinished business or because of some grave injustice. Let’s be real though. No one spirit is hanging out at your house ALL the time. Spirits have the ability to come and go as they please. No one spirit is reaching out or still here because of one simplified reason. I personally believe that spirits have the ability to come and go from the various levels of reality as we know it. This would explain why when so many people are dying they tell others they see those loved one’s that have passed before them. I fully believe loved one’s come and go to help us guide. Be honest with yourself and your beliefs, and you will conclude God is a busy guy. There is no way one God could watch us all, hear us all, and protect us all. I would challenge the idea that spirits of our loved ones who have passed are there to hear us, watch over us, and guide us to the next step after death. My point? Ghosts are everywhere and for all different types of possible reasons, some spirits can come and go as they see fit. At the end of it all though, it is comforting to know we are watched over and reached out too by the one’s we have loved that are no longer with us in their physical form.
