FAQ About Ghosts
- What are Ghosts?
- Ghosts are departed souls who have lived and died on this earth, but
for some reason have elected or been forced to remain on this earth plane after
death. It is my belief that the intelligence and the emotions that made up who
we were in this life survives the death process. This energy may be considered
as our souls, energy that can't be destroyed at death, but is transformed into
another configuration. This energy is detectable with EMF meters that measures
milligauss units. Since we can measure the physical energy emitted by these
entities, we know that ghosts are not figments of our imagination as some
- Why are Ghosts earthbound?
- First, if we were happy, enjoyed life and lead a normal balanced
emotional life than at the time of death, we would see a tunnel of
light/darkness which would lead us to our next realm of existence. However, if
we were filled with angry emotions, bitter resentments or if we held negative
feelings or emotions against other people within us, we may be trapped here,
anchored by our negative energies. Departed spirits must remain here until they
can resolve or complete their mission. Second, if we had unresolved issues or
unfinished business we would want to stay until those issues or business
concerns were taken care of my us. If a loved one died and wanted to be sure
that their spouse or children were handling the passing of their loved one.
Suppose that a couple had been married for fifty years and one spouse dies. Do
you think that the dead spouse is going to depart and leave their loved one
behind. I don't think so. I think that he or she would remain behind watching
over their loved one until it was time for that spouse to pass on. Where would
this departed spouse stay? Would it be near the loved one? Would it associate
with other departed souls waiting for their loved ones to pass on? Third, what
if a child dies and is afraid to enter the light? The child-spirit is afraid,
wants its mother and so it searches for its mother by walking away from the
light. Haven't you noticed that some pranks are child like and resembles pranks
played by children.
- Should I be afraid of Ghosts?
- Let me ask you, should you be afraid of people? No, I think not. Some
ghosts are simply lost or confused, looking for help. When they haunt your
home, they are testing you to see if they can trust you. Are you going to judge
them, condemn them or label them as evil or demonic. If you treat them with
respect, you will gain their trust and than you will be able to help them
complete their mission or find their way home. Ghosts are life after life
entities who survive the process we call death. I believe that ghosts are proof
that we live again after death.
- Are Ghosts evil?
- I would ask you are people evil? How many people do you know that are
truly evil? I personally know of none. I have heard about serial killers, but I
don't know them personally. This same logic applies to ghosts. Ghosts are for
the most part good spirits, just as people are for the most part good. Yes,
there are evil men and there are evil spirits, but the odds of having them in
your home are the same as having a serial killer come to your home.
- If I am afraid, should I have a priest bless my home?
- Fear is based on not knowing. If you understood that ghosts may have
a mission to complete before they can move to their realm, or if they are lost
or confused and you drive them from your home, what are you doing for them? You
are not helping them so you become part of the problem. In most cases, blessing
a home has no effect on the spirits that dwell therein. They are not bound by
the same belief systems that you operate under. Perhaps instead of trying to
rid your home of ghosts, you should try to understand them and see if you could
help them resolve their problems. Talk to them as you would talk to a friend.
- How can I tell if I have a ghost in my home?
- In our book, The Haunted Reality, we listed some 23 events that may
occur when a home is haunted. If you are concerned and afraid, consider
purchasing this book and learning how to deal with these departed spirits.
- How can I detect ghosts?
- I would recommend you purchase one of the EMF detectors listed on our
website. The Magnetic Field Ghost Detector detects only the magnetic field
associated with these energy anomalies. You may also use a compass. Watch for
any magnetic deviation off of magnetic north. The deviations should be between
30-45 degrees off of magnetic north, depending on the energy strength of the
anomaly. You may use any kind of camera to photograph these apparitions. It is
recommended that Kodak 400 Gold film be used. The best time is 3PM or 3AM and
near the full or new moon lunar cycle.
- How can I document the existence of ghosts?
- The best way is to record their voices through EVP. Ghost recrodings
is he best evidence of life after death. I EMF meters that verify the presence
of magnetic energy normally can't provide printouts of those readings for
future studies. Other tools may be employed to confirm the presence of a
paranormal event such as real time temperature meters, gamma counterss,
infrared visors, night vision equipment, digital cameras, and thermo imaging
- Where should I look for ghosts?
- Look for areas where battles have taken place, accidents or disease
has killed many people. Old burial grounds, old buildings and places that are
rumored to be haunted. We have found that most old homes are haunted and many
new homes as well. Many old cemeteries have proven to be valuable sources for
balls of light and ectoplasmic discharges.
- What about ghost pets?
- Yes, we have recorded many stories about pet, such as dogs and cats,
that die and remain with their masters after death as ghosts. I believe that
these animals have souls that can remain here with us as ghosts. In our home,
we have two such pet ghosts, including our beloved yorkie who died recently.
Why is it strange to accept that our beloved pets would not want to remain
behind to be with us? They loved us and the power of love is very strong, even
- My religion teaches that there are no such things as ghosts.
- I am not here to destroy your religious belief system. I believe that
what we are taught in Sunday School may not always be what happens after death.
Religion was started by man for man to help him adjust to the afterlife. No one
has returned and said that what they have been taught is what really happens. I
would suggest that perhaps death opens a gateway to an existence that may well
be different from what we were told in Sunday School classes. I don't see
everything in black or white...good or evil. Just because I may not understand
something is no reason for me to label it as evil. Perhaps, I lack the
knowledge to understand what I am seeing. If a parent dies and remains behind
to watch over the family, is that departed spirit evil? No, it is the spirit of
a loving, caring parent who wants his family to adjust and get on with its
