So, what are ghosts? According to Merriam-Webster a ghost is:
“…a disembodied soul
especially : the soul of a dead person believed to be an inhabitant of the unseen world or to appear to the living in bodily likeness.”
Therefore it can be said that to believe in ghosts, you have to believe in a soul. I feel that’s valid.
Emotional state: happy
Mental state: mentally prepared
The spooky day of the year is drawing near and I feel it is fitting to talk about ghosts. Now that there is definition, it’s a little easier to go into detail. So, let’s begin.
Ghosts, whether you believe in them or not, are all around us. They reside on the “other side”, as many call it. They exist in a place with good and bad energies. That means there are good ghosts and bad ghosts. There are also other spirits and entities that are constantly lurking or moving about to their own accord. Rarely do we meet or deal with negative entities. You’re more likely to interact with a negative human who’s still alive. However, the fact remains that the bad ones do exist.
Personally, I’ve had many different experiences when it comes to ghosts, spirits, demons, and all the other “things” we still don’t have names for. So, when it comes to believing in such things, it’s not hard for me because I’ve lived it. Once someone has an experience, they will do one of two things.
- They will shy away from it because it scares them
- People will want to learn more because it’s spooky but intriguing
So, depending on what type of person you are, you may decide to steer clear of ghostly happenings, or, you will dive further into the world of spirits. It’s certainly not a bad thing.
Ghosts are not demons, although, demons are out there. Ghosts had physical form at one point, therefore, they’re not perfect, but that doesn’t mean they’re evil. According to many who have dealt with demons such as priests and those who work with spirits, demons have never had a physical form.
The state a person’s soul is in after they die greatly influences the type of spirit they will be. I’ve always been taught to have respect for those who have passed. It’s best to remain respectful to the spirits because they were once living beings as well. Also, sometimes they’re stuck in a constant cycle of what they perceive as “living” so, it’s best to be nice.
But truth can’t be avoided. They’re not living and sometimes they need to know that. Sometimes they’re trapped and re-live their death over and over. This often happens when they die a traumatic death or die suddenly from disease. Spirits can be doing one thing endlessly until they feel it is finished. But it will never be finished because they don’t know they’re dead.
Thank God mediums exist. Mediums often help people cross over and can even help the dead person’s loved ones by acting as a connection between the spirit and their families and friends.
I know this is kind of random but I wanted to give a bit of information for those who have wondered about ghosts, spirits, etc. Sometimes just a small amount of info can go a really long way. It can open doors and widen curiosity. So if you fear spirits, don’t. There’s no reason to. Delve into more information and find out for yourself. Don’t let your wonder be suppressed by fear or doubt. Widen your mind and dive into the mysterious.
