Many folks come to my blog with questions about spirits and ghosts. This is an area that is of great interest for me, so I love to pass along what I have experienced or know. Other experts, this may not be your knowing. I can only go by mine. So, here’s what I have learned about ghosts/spirits:
- Demons often are yukky people. Every time I watch Paranormal State and they bring Lorraine Warren on, I cringe. She seems like a lovely lady, but not every spirit is a demon. My own interpretation is there are yukky people and there are nice people. Just because you are dead, doesn’t mean you have found enlightenment. You may still be a yukky person. “Demons” many times are these such people who are acting out how they would have acted out in life–they are rude, nasty, trouble-some. Many times the folks who are experiencing bad hauntings were dabbling with a ouija board and called the folks in for visit without realizing that lower vibrations dig that kind of thing. The “demons” can also be thoughtforms that took life. We are that powerful in our creations. And, those that have some forms of mental illness or serious addictions do tend to attract earthbound spirit attachments.
- Lower vibrations–when I say lower vibration I mean that not in an arrogant-I’m better than you–definition. We all came to earth school to learn. Some of us are here for the first time and are entering first grade. They may be considered at a lower vibration. Others, have been here many times and are ready for graduate school. Some of us, not me, have been here enough that they finally “get” it, and don’t need earth school, but came here just to help the rest of us to “get” it.
- Ghosts can touch you. This takes a great deal of energy and I have witnessed them moving objects many times. But hurting you? That’s not been my experience, so I can’t really comment on that. I have experienced spirit hugs, and having my hair touched. But you do have boundaries with them as you do anyone. No one is allowed to do that without your permission whether living or not. Just yell no! and state your boundaries. If they don’t listen, get really pissy and call on your Angels to escort the bugger away from you.
- Ghosts vs. Spirits. I consider ghosts earth-bound spirits or those who haven’t crossed over yet for whatever reason. They are either lost and confused, or not wanting to let go. Spirits are those who have crossed over but are visiting and helping you. They fall more into the Spirit Guide category.
- They “haunt” all the time. I always laugh when I watch the ghost-hunting shows because they find it necessary to close the lights off in the middle of the night. I went to a seance locally not too long ago where they felt the need to do the same thing. I did see some movement, but I experienced more of the fear of the dark than anything. I feel ghosts or spirits around all the time, everywhere. Maybe they come out at night because its quieter and you are sleeping and there is less noise. Our world is so busy all the time, a spirit would have to compete with a great deal to get your attention.
- You have to be special and a Medium to talk to spirits and ghosts fallacy. If I was a bad healer and I wanted to sell my readings, I’d say, Yes, of course! Only I can do this and I am special. Now fork over tons of money. I do readings for others so you can get a second opinion/validation, or as an alternative until you learn or access your own abilities. We ALL can do this. You may have probably done this when you were very young. Like playing the piano, some of us are better at it than others, but we just came in more “wired.” When you are having experiences you are tuning into your ability. And those who have no ability at all? They are the folks that are shut down and are probably shut down in many areas. In one of my favorite movies, Field of Dreams, the family can see the spirit baseball players having a game in the backyard. The “shut-down” brother-in-law intent on taking away the land and the house to bank foreclosure sees nothing until a crisis occurs. Isn’t that how many of us re-find our abilities?
