Do Ghosts Exist – by Tana Hoy

If you have ever questioned whether or not ghosts exist, the overwhelming amount of evidence would point to the answer that “yes, ghosts do exist”. A ghost is the soul, or spirit, of someone who has passed on, and appears in a visible form.

Do Ghosts Exist?

Ghosts on film!

Descriptions of the appearance of ghosts vary widely, from an invisible presence, to barely visible wispy shapes, or even realistic, life-like figures.

Ghosts are generally described as solitary essences that are attached to particular locations, objects, and in some rare instances, people they were associated with in life.

Different Kinds Of Ghosts

The following are some of the more common types of ghosts”

Animal Ghosts

Animal ghosts make their presence felt not just through manifestations, but also sound and smell. It is not unusual for a person experiencing a supernatural visit from animal ghosts to hear the pitter-patter of the invisible animal, hear them whimpering, panting, or even scratching on doors.

Inanimate Ghosts

One thing that all inanimate ghosts have in common is routine. They appear at the same time, and the same place, throughout the day and night, travelling the same route that was taken by them, just before the moments that they passed away. These ghosts are frozen in time, repeating their final moments, over and over again.

Doppelgänger

This ghost has the ability to project itself in more than one place, hence the meaning of its name. As far as is known, no other ghost has this kind of ability.

Residual Historical Haunting

In a residual haunting, the apparition keeps repeating itself, doing the same actions over and over again. They may even do the same actions at certain times at night, which explains why some hauntings seem to be triggered or heightened at specific times. A ghost that is always sighted standing on the side of the same road, in the same area, at the same time of night, would be an example of this.

How To Tell If Your House Is Haunted - What To Look for

When it comes to haunted hotspots, there are always a few signs that will let you know whether or not ghost activity is present. Below are a few signs to look out for.

- Strange noises in the middle of the night.
- Cold chills in heavy air.
- That feeling of someone watching you in an otherwise empty room.

Whether you believe in ghosts or not, they do exist. Here are a few signs that your house may be haunted.

Electronic Disturbances

Maybe your television changes channels by itself, or a strange interference occurs on your radio, or telephone. It’s hard to say whether or not such things might be caused by unintended house guests, but if you ever find a toaster dancing on your counter top, that would be a tell tale sign.
Disappearing Objects

Ever lose something —car keys , the remote, your cell phone — only for it to turn up again in the strangest of places? Or worse, right back where you know you left it? This may be the result of something called Disappearing Object Phenomenon.

Where do the objects go? It could be a case of you missing it the first time you looked…or it could be a mischievous spirit playing tricks on you.

Strange Noises

Hauntings can manifest as faint whispers or grumblings, mysterious banging on the wall, or the sound of footsteps in a hallway. If you ever hear something like that, or what sounds like a little doll running around upstairs, maybe think about getting a ghost expert to visit your house.
Rogue Shadows

Shadow people come in many shapes and sizes such as outlines, or menacing silhouettes in the shapes of humans. Whether they’re ghosts or, well, eye floaters, lurking shadows in the corner of your eye may be a sign that your house is haunted.

Strange Dreams

Strange dreams involving people you don’t know, and recurring night terrors, are said to be a sign that something else may be afoot. Are spirits trying to contact you from the other side?

Ghostly Apparitions

And last but not least, there’s always one sure-fire way to know your house is haunted. It may be rare to happen, but seeing full-body apparitions, or ghostly wisps of light, are definite signs that something extraordinary is happening.

Don’t panic if you find your home inhabited by spirits, there is little evidence they can (or will) actually harm anyone. If you are certain a spirit is living in your house, just politely ask them to leave. So when you wonder “Do ghosts exist?” the answer is “yes” , and they are just as real as you and me.

    Tana, less than a year 1 year ago I started seeing and sensing a dark entity around me. I would see him mostly at night after I would put my kids to bed. It all started with seeing his reflection in the mirror one morning while brushing my teeth, I was getting ready to go to work. I saw him walking toward me in the hallway he was coming from my room where I had just finished changing. Then, I would see his face flash in the walls just briefly. To make a long story short I had my local church come bless my house and I prayed a lot to ArchAngel Michael and I saw him one last time he was walking away from me and I never saw him again….thank you ArcAngel Micheal.
    I would like to add that a psychic told me he had attached himself to me. So, I definately believe in ghosts.
