Day 7 - Conjuring Up A Ghost
Times and consciousness have changed and continuing to evolve allow us to awakening to things that religion, fear and ignorance suppressed through the millennia.
In the twenty-first century, most people that there is more than just physical reality, including ghosts. When one crosses over the continuity continues through dreams and other physical and psychic events that allow them to connect with deceased loved one. It is all about frequency, energies, and projected illusion in the grids of parallel realities.
Ghosts appear to us as projected illusion, just as we appear to them in much the same manner, for in truth all of reality is a virtual reality experience which we observe through the illusion of time.
Halloween is linked to ghosts and all things scary.
So you want to meet a ghost ... or perhaps you live with one and want to make contact ... or you want to get rid of a pesky ghost.
Does the idea of a ghost scare you? As with all things in our reality, ghosts can be both negative or positive, yet non-the-less scare people with their presence and antics. Paranormal conditioning is ruled by fear of the unknown - that which we do not understand and cannot control.
As a Psychic and Medium who has made contact with ghosts most of my life, I can only say that they appear for a reason, and once that is accomplished, move on. Ghosts can be positive and negative just as all things in our electromagnetic reality are. They make you aware by any means that attracts your attention.
A ghost is said to be the apparition of a deceased person, frequently similar in appearance to that person, and usually encountered in places she or he frequented, or in association with the person's former belongings. The word "ghost" may also refer to the spirit or soul of a deceased person, or to any spirit or demon. Ghosts are often associated with hauntings, which is, according to the Parapsychological Association, "the more or less regular occurrence of paranormal phenomena associated with a particular locality (especially a building) and usually attributed to the activities of a discarnate entity; the phenomena may include apparitions, poltergeist disturbances, cold drafts, sounds of footsteps and voices, and various odors.
Ectoplasm is the supposed residue left by spirits. This concept became especially famous in the time of Freud, and made up a large portion of the Spiritualist movement in the twentieth century. According to studies done during this movement, ectoplasm can take many forms, but is often seen as a yellow-green hue or ooze around a ghosts body.
Ectoplasmic residue is often spotted in pictures, when a ghost interferes with a shot. It can also be spotted in the air and sometimes with a special flashlight or pair of goggles. At times, moving through ectoplasm has been "noted" to be the cause of illness or possession. Breathing or exuding it is a sign of being in contact with the supernatural world. It is thought that ectoplasm is the reason that ghosts can materialize. The reason that this residue is visible is because it gives spirits a physical link to the corporeal world. Many cases of ectoplasmic residue often mark a strange appearance or physical disturbance in a haunted area. For this reason, when ectoplasm is spotted, specialists in spirit divination and ghost tracking are called.
Ectoplasm has also been known to come from the body of a "medium," or a person acting as a bridge to channel with the spirit world. Photographic pictures along these lines will include shadows or fog around a medium's stomach, heart, mouth ears or nose. In some cases, ectoplasm can even come from a living person, as can be seen in eighteenth-century photos.
It is possible that the ectoplasmic residue left on some photographs is instead magnetic fields emanating from the earth. Research has been done in this area, but there is no conclusive evidence that strange auras and shadows really are simply natural phenomenon. Many mediums claim that ectoplasmic residue is the movement of spirits disturbing magnetic fields around the earth.
Ectoplasm (from the Greek ektos, "outside", + plasma, "something formed or molded") is a term coined by Charles Richet to denote a substance or spiritual energy supposedly "exteriorized" by physical mediums. Ectoplasm is said to be associated with the formation of ghosts, and hypothesized to be an enabling factor in psychokinesis.
Although the term is widespread in popular culture, the physical existence of ectoplasm is not accepted by mainstream science. Some tested samples purported to be ectoplasm have been found to be various non-paranormal substances, including chiffon and flakes of human skin. Other researchers have duplicated, with non-supernatural materials, the photographic effects sometimes said to prove the existence of ectoplasm. Since its inception in the field of spiritualism, the concept of ectoplasm has escaped to become a staple in popular culture and fictional supernatural lore.
Generally, you don't find ghosts, they find you. Ghost hunters use all sorts of expensive and sensitive equipment to locate, video and communicate with ghosts.
White Noise - Electronic Voice Phenomena
When there has been a disaster in an area, such as the events of 9/11 at Ground Zero in NYC, it leaves a spike or strong residue on the grid will always have ghostly manifestation, souls trapped or just moving from grid to grid as projections.
Ghosts can be found almost anywhere. They come and go and move about freely until they move back into the collective unconscious.
Many private residences, and not just old ones, have a tainted past that might include murder, suicide or some other tragic event. Many times, these events cause a place to become haunted. The location can become haunted because of a spirit being drawn there by these events or because one has stayed behind because of them. These spirits can be positive or negative and haunted houses boast all kinds of different phenomena. Private homes are also much harder for a ghost hunter to gain access to that public buildings but can be very rewarding if you can get an invitation.
Cemeteries seem to offer the ghost hunter an excellent chance for strange phenomena and spirit photos, perhaps because of the theory involving "spirit portals" and "doorways" in many burial grounds. Cemeteries with unmarked graves, where desecration has taken place or where tragic events have occurred often become haunted. A search through historical records can often point a researcher to a haunted graveyard.
The entire range of the human emotion is expressed inside of a theater and this seems to attract spirits who use this energy. The theater also stirs a great love from many people who work in them and many have returned after their deaths. The saying goes that every good theater has a ghost and many theaters are prime locations for all kinds of spirits.
A church also contains a lot of spent human emotion and can attract ghosts. It is also possible that some churches could have been built on the site of a place that many considered evil. This would drive away the so-called evil spirits - although it is possible that the place was simply a haunted one. While churches seem like they would be a great place to conduct investigations, the same type of narrow thinking that labels ghosts as demons usually keeps the ghost hunter out of these locations.
Schools and Colleges
Many schools have had tragic events that attract ghosts, either from former students or staff members or from all of the energy given off by having so many young people all clustered together. The best way to pursue ghosts at a college is to pass the word to a student or two that you are interested in hearing their stories (they almost always have them) or by talking to someone on the security or maintenance staff. Talk to a teacher or a custodian at the local high school or elementary school. l do not recommend hanging around the playground and asking the students.
Thousands of people pass through your local hotels and motels each year, so it is not a far reach to think there might be a ghost or two around. You can do a little investigating into the history of older hotels and even find that a suicide or murder could have taken there. Asking at the front desk about ghosts wouldn't do any good but the maintenance staff or the housekeeping workers might have a good story to tell. Be prepared to spend some money though. You cannot investigate a haunted hotel without spending the night there.
Battlefields and Crime Scenes
These two types of locations are linked because of the tragedy that has taken place at both of them. These locations deal with a sudden loss of life and this can sometimes cause a spirit to linger behind in confusion. The tragedy and the trauma involved can also lead towards a residual haunting as the terrible events replay themselves over and over again.
Cruise Ships like Queen Mary 1
Hospitals and Nursing Homes
These are places often overlooked by ghost hunters as it is not easy to get permission to hunt for ghosts as you will scare the residents. Bear in mind that many of those people are partially out of the grid meaning much of the consciousness is in a higher reality, so they already connect with spirits or ghosts.
There are also many out there which do not fit into a specific category - bodies of water, caves, roadways, forests, mines, etc. Everything and anything is haunted at some time or another.
To get rid of a ghost, ask your guides or someone who knows how to communicate with the dead, to help you. Some ghosts simply won't leave until the issue that keeps them trapped here, is resolved. Some are afraid to go or simply don't know how to detach from the grid. It is as scary to them as dying and detaching from the physical grid is to you. Someone on a higher grid has to help them cross over into the light.
