Do spirits come back to collect us?

by Rebecca Ivey

HAUNTED AMERICA TOURS

 

Do Spirits Come Back to Collect Us?



I have been involved in paranormal research for many years. Because I am the only researcher in my local area, I am always receiving e-mails and other claims of ghostly activity. What I usually have to remind people is that I am a researcher but not an investigator of paranormal activity. However, one claim came into my e-mail box that I could not ignore.

An elderly lady wrote begging for my help, claiming that her deceased husband was trying to kill her. Normally, I would refer her to a professional investigation team, but this time I picked up the phone and called her to schedule a time to visit. My intentions were to simply discuss the situation with her and to offer some alternatives that might possibly help ease her mind.

When I entered her house I immediately felt uncomfortable. There was a certain atmosphere to the house that was sickening, almost breathtaking. We sat in the kitchen around the dinner table as she poured out her feelings to me and explained the basis of her claims. I then decided to walk through the home alone, trying to pick up on any negative energy.

I noticed that the lady’s cat was following me through the house, in and out of each room. As I opened the door to the bedroom where the woman claimed to see the spirit most, the feline stopped and refused to go any further. I found this strange and picked the cat up in my arms, carrying it into the room with me. The air in the room was stiff and I felt as if someone had knocked the breath right out of my body. I started feeling dizzy and very ill. I placed the cat on the bed and sat down for a moment. Every hair on the cat’s body was fringed and his eyes were enormously dilated.

Although I did not see anything paranormal, I definitely felt “something” that gave me a very uncomfortable, uneasy feeling. I suddenly remembered a part of the woman’s e-mail in which she had stated that the day she and her husband were married he had told her that even in death he would never leave her. So I decided to ask a few questions aloud: Even though I had no recording devices, I was hoping for some sort of physical reply.

My first and only question was, “Are you unhappy that your wife is not with you?”

Within mere seconds of this question, the cat sitting beside me hissed loudly and jumped from the bed to the window, approximately 5 feet away. The cat kept watching the area behind me as if someone or something was there. I turned to look and a puff of icy air swept across my body.

I stood up to leave the room and the cat was ahead of me leading the way. I explained to the troubled woman that she was in need of a professional investigation team and should locate one as soon as possible. But she refused the suggestion of any such help. A few days later this lady was placed in the hospital, suffering from dehydration, and later went to live with her daughter in another state.

Months later, I received another e-mail from the same woman telling me that the spirit had followed her and was now taking up residence in her daughter’s home. A new family had moved into her former home so I decided to ask them if I could visit the house one last time. They were eager to allow me access to their home and curious to know whether or not I felt the same stressful feelings I had encountered there months before.
As I walked into the bedroom the air was light and fresh, nothing like the heavy, almost malevolent atmosphere I had sensed on my first visit. Overall, the home felt much different and nowhere did I encounter negative feelings or anything that made me uneasy about being there.

About a year later I received a phone call from the daughter of the elderly woman. She told me that her mother had passed away peacefully in her sleep and that, since her passing, the paranormal activity that had plagued the house had ceased. This culmination of events created many questions in my mind from the standpoint of paranormal research. For instance, can cats and other animals truly sense a paranormal presence? Does paranormal activity actually follow or pursue certain individuals? Can spirits come back to wait for and collect those they have left behind?

I have spent seemingly endless hours discussing these questions with reputable investigators, digging into a deeper level of research. I have concluded that there is only one answer for each of the questions at hand:

Yes, it has been proven many times that cats and other animals are much more likely to sense unnatural forces surrounding us. Why this is true has not been determined satisfactorily, but the fact remains that many investigators and scientists have observed heightened animal sensitivity to extra-normal events before humans in the same situation ever notice anything out of the ordinary.

Yes, restless spirits can and will follow individuals from place to place. It is suggested that this is the case primarily because of the attachment the recently dead feel for the person and for surroundings that may have provided comfort and security in life. Sometimes, in most cases, in fact, the spirits will move on; some move quickly, in a few months, others may linger on for a year or more. Still others are less able to break their connection to the world of the living and to the pleasant company they knew while still alive. These spirit beings are more apt to linger and cause a haunting situation; feeding on their frustration, they often become angry and create a palpable negative atmosphere with their very presence. And these entities will follow individuals to whom they feel a strong connection, so if your house is, in fact, haunted by a spirit of this sort simply moving will not end the activity.

And, yes, spirits of deceased loved ones can and do come back for many reasons. Sometimes they simply do not know they are dead and continue in their normal habits and the patterns they knew in life. For them, they are simply carrying on with life as they normally would. In other instances, these souls may linger because they feel the need to guard or protect the ones they have left behind. It is also very common for spirits to manifest when someone they loved dearly is ill or near death. Many experts believe this is because spirits are always nearby, ready to escort their loved ones to the “other side” when the time of their passing is near; often, when the threat of death or illness has passed, many recall a comforting presence that stayed with them throughout their ordeal. This is the presence of loved ones who have preceded us in death; they are often nearby to comfort their loved ones in times of sickness or fear. Still, there are other negative attachments that keep some spirits lingering among the living. For instance, some souls are not prepared for life on the other side, nor are they at all prepared to let go of their connections to the tangible, living world. In this case, they can and often do linger around their loved ones as a sort of psychic vampire; without meaning to, their overwhelming desire to stay connected can actually cause the strength of the living to diminish and ultimately to fall victim to illness and even death.

The list of questions about paranormal activity is constantly growing. Most of these questions can be answered with scientific facts and basic debunking techniques. Others are more compelling and often do not lend themselves to natural or reasonable explanations; some of these can only be explained as obviously paranormal. In any case, investigation and research into the world of the paranormal is not a game and should not be treated as such. It is always important to seek out people who understand and who are knowledgeable in the field. In investigative situations, never attempt to provoke or anger a spirit, this can lead to serious and even dangerous circumstances.

One last word of caution: Never turn to a Quija board for answers. There are dangers inherent to the use of the Quija board that are hard to avoid, even by experts, because the board is like an open channel allowing it to be used by any “lower spirits” or malevolent entities that remain earthbound. Such spirits can include those of criminals who continue to be angry and hostile on the other side, lower elemental spirits that find contact and control of humans extremely amusing and useful, and even higher, more malicious spirits who have never possessed a physical form and who have no good intentions whatsoever to share with the human race. You have no control over who or what will respond to your use of the Quija board, and ill-intentioned spirits will do and say anything to convince you that there is nothing to fear from them: they will even communicate as saints or as dear old Aunt Sue in order to get your guard down. Quija boards can open doors that the average, curious human may never be able to close, compounding an existing haunting, or, worse, creating an infestation of such a negative, malevolent nature, that even experts will be daunted in the face of it.

Finally, if you need assistance, there are many legitimate groups and individuals across the US who are considered experts in the paranormal. When seeking help, always look for credible teams with a proven track record, and don’t be afraid to ask for references. I am always happy to assist with referrals of qualified investigators for people who find themselves in a paranormal situation or who are in need of help.

About Rebbeca Ivey

Since her childhood Rebecca had a passion for writing. Pouring her thoughts and feelings onto paper was something done almost daily. As a teenager she began writing poetry and music. At the age of seventeen several of her written song lyrics were sold.

Each day lived only added to Rebecca’s ability to write, contributing deeper and more personal meaning day by day.
Due to her belief that she had experienced encounters with the paranormal, Rebecca also developed the interest to study and learn about the unseen world around us. Taking the criticism and jokes of detractors in stride, she soon became one of the most knowledgeable and experienced individuals in the field of paranormal studies.

Now combining her writing skills with her lifelong interest in the paranormal, Rebecca has become a published writer of articles dealing with the subject. Her writings range from fiction to non-fiction and are currently viewed by upward of 1000 readers a day online.

Through these writings readers have the opportunity to read and learn about real-life paranormal events experienced by Rebecca and others who reach out to her for help and support. Rebecca’s talent for fiction creates scenes that, though not based on actual events, nevertheless leave readers on the edge of their seat. Through her writing, Rebecca entertains as well as informs, and she’s never above producing a good scare!

Rebecca’s writings are not limited to things that go bump in the night, however, and she is still a very active writer of poetry, music and other disciplines that have won her several notable awards such as an Editor’s Choice Award and the 2005 Commendation Award.

Rebecca makes it clear that she is not a paranormal investigator, which requires a thorough knowledge of the science of parapsychology and its investigative techniques. She describes herself as an avid paranormal “researcher,” more concerned with the gathering of information related to paranormal events and sharing this information with others, while providing experts in the field with a bulk of verifiable information as reference.

Rebecca is always more than happy to assist in finding reputable and professional investigators for those who feel threatened or in need of help.
