What are ghosts? No one knows for certain.

Ghosts and hauntings seem to be a relatively common part of the human experience.

The traditional view of ghosts is that they are the spirits of dead people that for some reason are “stuck” between this plane of existence and the next, often as a result of some tragedy or trauma. Many ghost hunters and psychics believe that such earth-bound spirits don’t know they are dead. Veteran ghost hunter Hans Holzer says, “A ghost is a human being who has passed out of the physical body, usually in a traumatic state and is not aware usually of his true condition. We are all spirits encased in a physical body. At the time of passing, our spirit body continues into the next dimension. A ghost, on the other hand, due to trauma, is stuck in our physical world and needs to be released to go on.”

Ghosts exist in a kind of limbo in which they haunt the scenes of their deaths or locations that were pleasant to them in life. Very often, these types of ghosts are able to interact with the living. They are, on some level, aware of the living and react to being seen on the occasions that they materialize. Some psychics claim to be able to communicate with them. And when they do, they often try to help these spirits to understand that they are dead and to move on to the next stage of their existence.

    This is beautiful Carol… very nicely done. . .

  • Thank you very much. I’m not totally pleased with it. I might try to redo it. You know how it is. We have to please ourselves first. I think it’s worth a second attempt.

    Not only a great image but the written text on ghosts makes interesting reading, I have come to have a completely open mind on the subject after a couple of experiences that can’t be explained any other way, a subject that will NEVER go away,
    Regards, Rod.

  • I know what you mean, Rod. I think we are all curious about the possiblility of ghosts. I do think I have had a couple strange happenings myself with those who have passed that were very close to me. Whether real or my imagination, I guess i will never know.
