The term ghost is described as the disembodied spirit of the dead, appearing as a pale or shadowy apparition. Many human beings believe in the afterlife, a place somewhere beyond our physical world and that ghosts or spirits can reenter the physical world after death. Some people feel that all ghosts or spirits are trapped souls, souls of the departed who have unfinished business while some may be attached to the material world, or may not realize that they are physically dead and without a physical body, especially in the cases where a sudden unexpected or violent death has occurred.
When ghosts are seen, they are often described as being a filmy white or misty, transparent figure. They can be seen with a full body or partially formed body. People have described seeing a clearly formed body appearing to be of physical flesh and dressed in period clothing, while others may appear to the living as a ghostly apparition, transparent and floating above the ground. These spirit entities may have the ability to communicate verbally or by gesturing and may have the ability to interact with the living or they may be completely unaware of those in the physical world.
There is no dominating pattern to a haunting. A haunted location or area is usually the former home of the deceased or the place where one has died. A haunted location could also include a place where the deceased had visited often during their physical lifetime. Paranormal phenomena can often be experienced in areas of violent attacks and battlefields. The activity can happen at a location or area periodically, or on the anniversary of a tragic event, while others can occur continually.
Through today’s technology and efforts of those in the field of investigation and communication with these paranormal entities, has brought about the opportunities of documenting and recording these haunting events. And can offer undisputable evidence that the spirit of the departed does live on after physical death and communication along with interaction is indeed possible.
As early as my young childhood I remember always being curious about the supernatural, paranormal, and mysticism in general. I seemed to be drawn with curiosity about the unseen, or what one would term as the occult.
