Just like living humans, ghosts
maintain their unique individual
personalities and traits. From the
friendly, curious and playful to
the grumpy and reclusive, we must
respect and be mindful of these
foreign fourth dimensional citizens.
Being that there are many character
and personality traits within the
spirit community, there are also
a considerable amount of different
forms or species of ghosts, entities
or spirits. Each varying in composition
and origin. For instance, the average
human ghost is most often simply
the spiritual energy and essence
that remains after the dense earthbound
human shell is shed. On average,
the intelligent free roaming spirit
that resides at a location, rarely
interacting or bothering the living,
is of the fourth dimension. Those
living on earth reside in the third
Generally, these fourth dimension
spirits vibrate at a higher frequency
than human beings. Just like the
nearly invisible wings of a hummingbird,
some ghosts retain a higher consciousness
that vibrates at a much faster pace,
propelling their physical state
into that of translucent existence.
The vast majority of these beings
are those of recent deceased relatives
and those who have a personal and
peaceful agenda to complete on earth.
Usually they are interested in checking
in on their loved ones or offering
spiritual comfort to those in need.
They basically go about their own
business, occasionally bumping into
the odd living person, creating
When these beings wish to communicate
with us living, they must reduce
their vibration frequency and we
must attempt to raise our own. When
conditions are favorable, such as
available energy for the spirit
to draw from for manifestation and
the living participant is able to
transcend it's consciousness to
a higher plane, communication can
It is interesting to note that
most ghosts are seen wearing clothes.
When a person crosses over, they
still maintain much of their previous
self. That includes their fashion
tastes, morals and dignity. The
image that they represent on the
other side is often that of who
they were on earth, now blended
with their spiritual self.
Even ghosts who experience trauma
at death will sometimes retain the
form in which they were last cognizant
of themselves as alive. Ann Bolin’s
ghost was often seen wandering the
castle carrying her head under her
arm due to her beheading.
A spirit that has been roaming
the afterworld for a while, will
present themselves to others as
what they decide is appropriate.
A grandmother that appears to her
granddaughter, will appear as an
old woman, but may resume a younger
image of herself afterwards while
exploring the afterlife.
Redundant ghosts are blips in the
fabric and flow of time. Explanations
of time theories suggest that time
is irrelevant, that we all simply
exist in this one moment. If this
is true, all eras and time frames
are loosely stacked upon one another
and can occasionally intersect.
Some ghostly activity seems strangely
repetitive. Toilets flushing, pacing
in hallways and doors opening and
closing for no reason, suggest a
residual redundant haunting. An
overlapping incident that occurred
in some other moment, forever replaying
like a broken record. These are
not self aware entities, just recordings,
so they are not available for comment.
The next type of spirit is the
poltergeist. This is a very complex
creature that feeds off of the human
energy fields. It can literally
be a entity merged with mixture
of many strong emotions that emanates
from one or more human beings. Because
anger, hatred and fear are some
of the strongest emotions that a
human can portray, this entity can
literally feed off of the potentially
toxic core energy of a human's aura.
Many poltergeists begin as a small,
harmless and pesky ghost imps. Never
existing as a human or having been
from flesh, this entity can be best
described as a leech. The more blood
a leech drains from it's host, the
stronger and bigger it becomes.
The entity utilizes intense negative
energy and because paranormal activity
can cause even more stress to an
already toxic or tense environment,
the poltergeist can grow stronger
and more destructive with each passing
day. Studies have shown that homes
containing one or more teenagers,
particularly girls, can be a perfect
breeding ground for the poltergeist
due to the intense hormone fluctuation
and mood swings.
This irritating and frightening
spirit is often misdiagnosed and
mislabeled as a demon, but most
times it's just very effectively
manipulating those around it. They
find particular joy in mentally
and emotionally torturing the living.
Unfortunately, these beings cannot
not be reasoned with rationally.
They exist only to taunt and provoke,
not to mention they vibrate at much
lower frequency than humans, allowing
them to manipulate solid objects.
They seem very proficient at throwing
items of all sizes and shapes at
their seemingly defenseless homeowners.
Mythology maintains a dark overlord
with vast and powerful minions.
As an ever evolving and spiritually
maturing species, we are slowly
becoming aware that what the mass
consciousness believes, the universe
will manifest. As we become more
aware of the power of intention
and consequences of our conscious
thoughts, we can begin to comprehend
how our own diverse energies can
affect our environment.
Exorcisms or objects of religious
faith seem to be effective in taming
the feral poltergeist, but these
divine acts and items are merely
a means to a hopeful end. It is
the shift from negative to positive
consciousness that this act and
these items portray. A cross, holy
water and the bible are all symbols
of intense positive thought and
energy therefore creating the homeowners
to subconsciously alter the apparently
evil charge of the house to peaceful.
The very best and most effective
way to tame and rid your home of
these paranormal residential vermin
is to literally positively charge
the environment. Meditation, intentional
positive reinforcement and conscious
spiritual cleansing causes the acidic
environment to return to balance,
therefore retarding the poltergeist’s
efforts. Eventually, because they
cannot feed on their preferred energy
source in that home, they move on.
Remember, energy can neither be
created nor destroyed, only altered.
These creatures cannot be destroyed,
just denied. If you deny it the
destructive negative food it seeks,
it cannot sustain it’s tantrums.
If you fear and condemn it, you
feed it and give it authority. Yet
if you take the power from it by
inducing powerful positive thoughts
and actions, it is demeaned and
will quickly tire of the game. Like
a toddler throwing a tantrum, ignore
them, don’t give in to them.
As with every rule, there seems
to be exceptions. In rare cases,
violent, malevolent and evil based
entities can be particularly dangerous.
Drugs, alcohol and any mind altering
agents can induce these creatures
to terrifying status. As well as
highly abusive and toxic environments.
Paranormal professionals that can
better deal with these intruders
should be contacted.
In the rarest of events, negative
entities with extreme energy and
self awareness can penetrate a weakened
human’s aura. When a human
is worn down to mere inches of their
self awareness, they can be manipulated
by these evil beings. The human
soul is untouched, but the physical
nature of the human’s fragile
state compromises it’s actions.
When there is weakness within the
aura, caused by many, many factors
such as drugs, alcohol, abuse or
depression, there is a porous hole
left in the aura’s field of
energy. The entity, being that it
is a energy parasite, can latch
on to the host causing it to be
This event over history is what
is deemed as being possessed. The
soul, however, is impenetrable,
no harm can be done to it. The physical
self however, needs spiritual, physical
and emotional attention. There are
several ways this can be done. All
require time, effort and the willingness
to cleanse oneself of this ailment.
Trusted advisors must be sought
out, for counsel as well as medically
discounting any mental ailment that
may be affecting judgment.
On occasion, a deceased human energy,
suffering a traumatic or violent
death can become trapped within
a confusing state of conflicting
vibration. Because they are confused
and angry with certain circumstances
of their death, they ignore or choose
not to move on to the higher vibration
dimensions. It can be tricky dealing
with these spirits as some of them
don't realize they are dead or are
angry that their life is over or
was taken from them. Patience and
extreme care must be taken for these
people. It may take a very long
time for them to come to the realization
that there are better places for
them to be.
Due to their molecular instability,
they can continually jump back and
forth through realms, causing a
ruckus for the living and creating
even more confusion for themselves.
Often, they are convinced that you
and your family are the intruders
and attempt to rid themselves of
you. Don't take it personally, only
try to understand their discomfort
and attempt to resolve the misunderstanding.
Compassionately treat them as though
they were the victims of Alzheimer's
or amnesia, then we may not be so
inclined to be impatient or frightened
with our unseen house guests.
The very best way to deal with
these spirits is to calmly and patiently
communicate to them often that they
are deceased and need to go home.
All of us remember home at some
point, some while living, some a
while after they are dead. Keep
reminding them and eventually they
Without evil, we would not understand
good, without the negative, we would
not appreciate the positive.
