unfortunately, i think that is a common misconception. most human spirits won't cause a person or an animal harm but, they have the ability to
directly effect their surroundings. and this stretches from inanimate objects to animate ones. the most subtle of effects being a push or a shove,
poking, tugging on clothes. but, more advanced spirits can do more advanced things with their energy. if it's just a residual haunting/energy they
won't interact at all because it's essentially just a energetic tape loop of a moment or moments in time.
but, it's only a malevolent/angry human spirit or an inhuman spirit that will actually cause harm to a person or animal. so it's not nearly the
majority of spirits that we're talking about here. also, if a person or animal is ill, sick, in poor health, very young or very old it appears as
though those things make one more susceptible than normal. but, this doesn't mean that people/animals in good health can't be effected as well. i
know it's possible for an animal to fall victim to the actions of a spirit but, a person i think is more difficult/rare though not entirely
impossible. they could do harm that results in an accident, like falling down stairs or cause someone strain that results in a heart-attack or stroke,
both have the potential to be fatal.
when a negative spirit reaches a certain level of strength they can mess with the human body or an animals body and cause things to happen that could
in turn result in serious consequences. they can feed off of that suffering, in addition to the ability to feed off of negative emotions like anger &
sadness. in turn that energy is re-purposed and used again to continue the cycle of causing negative emotion and then feeding off of it's aftermath.
this is why haunts with negative spirits can escalate over time and can in some instances escalate quickly.
