What is a ghost?
I don’t always see ghosts, but I feel and feel them, hear them, and sometimes even smell them. When we physically die, our souls leave our bodies and most of the time we go to the other side. Every now and then a soul will choose, for one reason or another, not to go to the other side. He will decide to stay here on earth, becoming an earthly spirit or ghost. Our souls are made of energy. A ghost can have the appearance of our physical body only transparent like a watercolor. Souls can also appear as a ray of light or a wave of energy, as a mirage of heat. When a soul appears, it can also have clothing similar to what it wore in life. There are many reasons why ghosts choose not to go to the other side.
We are in death as in life and ghosts are as varied in their personalities as are the living. The souls that are left behind are a small number compared to those that cross and move on. The notion that ghosts are harmful and evil is not based on reality. Most ghosts are simply unhappy, restless, lost, and harmless. When it comes to ghosts, remember that you are the one with the body, you are the one with the power. Treat them kindly and help them on their way.
Why are the ghosts around?
They are afraid to confront their creator for the things they did in their life.
They fear not going to heaven, so they fear crossing.
There is someone who has died before them who do not want to see the other side.
They are afraid of letting go of their earthly identity.
They don’t know they are dead.
They may have had a sudden or violent death.
Some believe that there is no life after death, so when their soul leaves their body they don’t know where to go.
They feel a strong pull from a loved one on this side, so they stay, thinking that they are helping them in the grieving process.
They stay to protect a loved one.
If they die of addiction, they may be looking for another body to inhabit so they can continue with the drug of their choice.
They don’t feel worthy to go to the other side.
