What is a Ghost? Are Ghosts Real?

Answers to the age-old question, “What is a ghost?”

Are ghosts real? People have been asking themselves this question for thousands of years. But despite widespread sightings and stories dating back over millennia, we still have no definitive proof that spirits actually exist.

Believers say the skeptics are blind to the evidence that’s right in front of them. Skeptics say any paranormal evidence likely has a rational explanation, and those who chase ghosts are fooling themselves.

Who is right, who is wrong, and where is the proof?

What are ghosts?

Today we are going to touch upon a question which might seem a bit scary to many of you. Still this is a question that is often asked by people. Do ghosts really exist? Different people have different opinions about the same. Some people claim that they have seen a ghost. Some are skeptical and they believe that when we die everything is over.

However, the concept of ghosts has been found in all the cultures across the world. There are remedies mentioned in all cultures about how to get rid of ghosts. Yet what is the truth behind this claims and whether there has been even a systematic scientific study of the phenomenon? Let us find out more about this interesting query.

Do ghosts really exist is a question that becomes more confusing as you try to answer it. The common belief is that when a man or woman dies an untimely death or when the person dying is killed by a violent episode the soul does not get rest. They keep looking for a medium to contact the living world. All they want is that their souls are set free. When there is an encounter with the dead, a priest or a healer is called for. These people help to get rid of the soul. They can communicate with the dead and exactly understand what is required in order to set the souls free. Actually the word “getting rid of the soul” in the preceding sentence may not be true as soul cannot be destroyed but yes the people curing ghosts can actually help the soul to break connections with the material world.

Of course, it is well known that many believe ghosts to be the disembodied spirits of humans and animals that once walked the face of this Earth, while others believe ghosts to be some sort of unintelligible energy imprint that has remained imprisoned upon our environment. Some believe ghosts to be demons while others do not believe in ghosts at all. One day, scientists may be able to prove just what ghosts are; but today, we only have the experiences and experiments from which to draw some conclusions.

It is said that ghosts can easily contact a dog or a child. When your child tells you something that is strange don’t ignore it. There are some ghosts who don’t harm anyone and on the other hand there are ghosts who are evil and they want to damage others in some way or the other. Some of us are sensitive this is exactly why ghosts approach us. Some of us are strong willed so ghosts cannot contact us easily

When a person is lonely and weak the possibility to encounter ghosts is higher. There are many video and audio recordings that have proved the existence of ghosts. These are strong proofs to support the claim that ghosts do exist. In the olden days several times people have encountered ghosts. It is said that some of them are very territorial. They don’t like it when people enter their houses. This is exactly why they try to ensure that the new occupants of the house are scared and they leave. Some ghosts are friendly and they don’t harm anyone.

Many people have seen ghosts over time, yet science today has yet to answer the question, “What are ghosts?” So, what exactly are ghosts? Could some ghosts possibly be the power of the human mind projecting forth apparitions of loved ones? Are ghosts, people trapped in our earthly world, wandering spirits who are struggling in a temporary hell, being unable to move beyond the past? Or, are ghosts simply rare glimpses of the past that replay within the physical environment, being seen only sparingly?

Soul never dies they live on and they will keep visiting you. The ghost can be of a family member or of a stranger. When you experience something supernatural don’t ignore it. Try to face it. This may save you from a lot of trouble. When a ghost tries to contact you be brave and try to understand what exactly the ghost wants you to do. You can contact an expert. The contact of spiritual healers is many online. These people can help you to handle the situation better. We will advise that you seek help as you may not be capable of handling the situation. You will never know how powerful the ghost is and what its intentions are. When you see your child communicating with thin air or when you see your dog barking furiously then don’t consider these as nothing. Actually the logic behind this is that the mind of a child is very calm, pure and intuitive relatively speaking to a normal adult so has much more sensitivity, and even it is believed that dogs have sixth sense.

 The reason we struggle with identifying the exact nature of ghosts is due to a lack of conclusive evidence. No one has yet been able to capture scientific, definitive proof that ghosts do indeed exist, or put forth a provable explanation as to why ghosts exist. Until this occurs, ghosts will remain the stuff of legend and lore.

 

 What are Ghosts? There is Strong Evidence to Consider.
The evidence for ghosts is indeed overwhelming. When one takes a step back and decides to look throughout history for accounts of ghosts, it is easy to see that many have witnessed them. And, some of the stories of ghosts come from multiple witnesses who saw the same thing at the same time – together. Could two minds be fooled into seeing the same thing at the same exact time? Not likely, it would seem, though some skeptics would argue it was possibly the power of suggestion at work. But what about the sightings of the same ghost seen at different times but in the same place by different people? And ghosts and haunting are found throughout the world. Stories of ghosts abound, which suggests that it is likely impossible that everyone who has ever had an experience with ghosts has been duped by their own mind and senses.

Interestingly, ghosts are no respecter of persons, for ghosts have been witnessed who are both famous and unknown. Celebrities of old and the modern-era have been reported haunting former haunts, with some being quite interactive with witnesses. Even odder are the sightings of inanimate ghost objects, such as planes, cars and buildings by several witnesses. Are these ghosts, too? What about the repeated sounds of ghost voices, gunfire, cannons, trains and other noises from the past that are heard in haunted locations by a myriad of witnesses over time? What explanation can be found for them, if not residual energy being released? Is there an unknown trigger for each ghost sighting that causes it to appear to people? Many believe that such a thing as time-slips occur, where past events that happened in a particular place continue to occur, but in another dimension. This is definitely an idea that could explain some ghosts. Still, many questions remain concerning ghosts and different types of haunting.

There are other ghosts that cannot be explained away by theories of residual haunting, or time-slips. These ghosts are interactive with people, not only being seen, but heard, felt and communicative, being definitely different than some past event re-running over and over before spectators. Such ghosts are not chain-rattling spectres as Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol artfully imagined, but are intriguing stories of human experience revealing an array of interesting haunting phenomena. It has been the hope of sharing evidence we receive that perhaps a greater understanding of ghosts can be gleaned. Many a ghost seems to be interacting with humans in order to gain attention, aid or simply for personal enjoyment. Some ghosts are downright loving, while others are mean-spirited. But, isn’t that what the sea of humanity is, a pool of different personalities? So, why should the personalities (and reasons for ghosts remaining behind with the living) be any different?

Most ghosts appear to be hurting people who are trapped in the past, having not moved on in their life-journey. This journey continues, from what we have deduced, through heading toward the light after death. Ghosts sometimes seem to be aware of this light, but have not gone forward through it for a variety of reasons. Ghosts may remain behind unwittingly, due to being lost, while others seem to be looking for resolution. Maybe, a ghost needs acknowledged that he or she is alive, or there could be a message that needs to be delivered from the ghost to another living soul. Other ghosts, we have found, remained behind to watch over loved ones or former residences, while some ghosts were afraid to move on due to fear of being punished by an angry god, family or enemies they had made in the past. Whatever the reason, such lost human souls are truly in need of help, encouragement and enlightenment. Know that ghosts have been described in all shapes, sizes, ages, sexes and ethnicities: as people.

The father of modern analytical psychology, Carl Jung, after all his work and studies of the human mind was forced to believe in ghosts and spirits when he wrote this:Carl Jung: Ghosts

“I once discussed the proof of identity for a long time with a friend of William James, Professor Hyslop in New York. He admitted that all things considered, all these metaphysic phenomena could be explained better by hypothesis of spirits than by qualities and peculiarities of the unconscious. And here, on the basis of my own experience, I am bound to concede he is right. In each individual case I must of necessity be skeptical, but in the long run I have to admit that the spirit hypothesis yields better results in practice than any other.”

It is not foolish to believe in the existence of ghosts. Though cultures vary, most hold beliefs in ghosts. The very idea of ghosts rests upon our hope, our trust in our own soul being immortal. In China, for example, the dead (ghosts and spirits) are understood as co-existing with the living. One’s ancestors are honored. In South America, the Day of the Dead is a festival also honoring those who have passed, but still co-exist with us – ghosts, if you will. In the Far East, many believe that this life transcends into the next and there is never any loss. Therefore, the spirit or essence of a person lives on and on. There are many, many more examples of beliefs in ghosts and spirits found throughout many cultures and religions of the world.

To look at ghosts further, we should perhaps understand that each of us has an etheric body – the spirit energy that animates and co-exists with the physical form. It is the real person, the eternal essence of the individual, being a part of one energy source. This spirit energy is what is seen when ghosts are visibly witnessed as apparitions.  Near-death-experiences  seem to confirm this idea. This spirit energy is comprised of sub-atomic matter, which is why it is currently undetectable by scientists. It has been believed for thousands of years that this spirit-energy body is connected with the physical body by way of what’s been dubbed “the silver cord.” When this cord is severed, much like cutting an electrical appliance cord, the body’s life source has been removed and it can no longer survive. Yet, the etheric body is still very much alive and well, just as ghosts would indicate.

Is There a Difference Between Ghosts and Spirits?
At this point, while reading this article, one might be wondering what the difference is between ghosts and spirits? Simply stated, we believe that a ghost is a spirit that has not yet gone to the light. The light is a cleansing process with a life-review, which from what we can deduce, acts as a time of reconciling with the past. Fear is always connected to the past and blocks the way to our future. By removing the past fears, the Spirit of a person is able to move on in the life-journey and leave the old, earthly life behind. This is not to say that a spirit of a person cannot visit loved ones here on Earth, but suggests that a brand new perspective is gained of seeing not only the past, but the present and the future, as well. This is quite a healing change of mind.

The future of our understanding of ghosts will undoubtedly be advanced and supported by what is to come in the modern-era. Quantum physics is already putting forth theories that will coincide and explain not only ghosts, but the existence of what has long been difficult to perceive: the invisible, realm of Spirit.
