You see ghosts because of ectoplasm . Ectoplasm is a mist like substance that is not completely solid but is physical enough to be photographed .Some ghosts can be seen in colour though most are white .Ghosts are discarnate spirits who are confused or unwilling to go into the light and so are trapped between dimensions . If their souls are to evolve ghosts need to be persuaded by an expert to move on and go to the light .All ghosts have been alive on earth at some point whether as a human or an animal . Ghosts of people have the same personalities they had when they were alive .
Why ghosts haunt
1 ) Sometimes ghosts do not know they are dead because the death came too quickly
2 ) They may be afraid of being punished when they go to the light because of how they lived during the physical life
3 ) They have unfinished business such as message to give to a loved one or a message about violent circumstances surrounding their death
4 ) They want to remain near their family or the home they lived in
5 ) They don’st know how to move on to the other dimensions
How ghosts contact you
Ghosts communicate telepathically through thoughts . Unlike poltergeists they do not wish to scare you.When ghosts appear more than one person may see them or only those sensitive to the paranomal phenomena . Animals are very sensitive to the presence of a ghost because they are more attuned to higher frequencies
Ways in which ghost cummunicates
1 ) He appears as a recognisable shape using ectoplasm ( a white haze )
2 ) He moves a photograph of himself when alive
3 ) He appears as a face in a mirror
4 ) His voice appears on a tape
5 ) A phone call is received and static and the deceased voice is heard faintly
6 ) You smell a flowery scent or a perfume or tobacco connected to the person when alive
7 ) Electric lights are turned on and off
8 ) You feel a chill , tickle or touch to the back of your head or neck
9 ) You feel a cold breeze in part of the room when the rest of the room feels normal
10 ) You hear noises such as rapping , music or knocking especially in the middle of the night
11 ) You feel there is someone else in the room
12 ) You wake and feel a weight pressing down on your chest
13 ) Mahines keep breaking for no reason
14 ) A series of unexplained small fires happen
15 ) Small children say that they can see someone else in the house
16 ) You pick up on negative emotions that don’t seem to belong to you for example you get a feeling of fear or depression especially around a certain room .
Ghosts appear in places that have strong energetic associations for example where many people have gathered or where people have died such as religious sites , theaters , pubs , castles , battlefields , cemeteries , sacred burial grounds and caves . Sites of mass deaths such as battlefields particularly attract ghosts . When a number of people get killed at the same time it is thought that souls can get trapped if there were not enough spirit guides ready to open the portals between planes to guide them through to the next dimension . Some souls therefore carry on the astral plane unaware the battle has ended . This is heard on the physical plane as sound phenomena .
There are mediums who specailise in rescuing souls at this type of location . Only very experienced medioums should try this type of rescue . Yhis is because the energy charge would be much too much for someone who is untrained .
What to do if you come across a ghost
1 ) First of all remember that a ghost means you no harm . You are more powerful than it is . It is important to be free of any fear
2 ) Ask your spirit guide to stay with you
3 ) Surround yourself with white light
4 ) Light sage or a smudge stick . Blow out the flame and use the smoke to smudge the place . this will get rid of energy from negative emotions though not the discarnate spirit
5 ) Talk to the spirit tell them the current date .Tell them that they cannot stay here . They are not welcome here as they do not belong here but need now to go to the light
6 ) Ask your spirit guide to help them move to the light move from one room to another repeating the process
7 ) When your feel the house is cleaned seal the home with white light
