In my experience there are a number of different phenomenon that are called ghosts but all of them are very different.
The religious have such preconceived notions of death they are poorly able to deal with the reality of it. I am very sensitive to energy of all sorts so I see things that others simply do not. I have walked by a cemetery late at night or early in the morning and seen the spirits of people lying in the dust and for the most part they were waiting for the judgment. I have looked right at them as they lay in the dust and ask them why they were there just lying around.
They would often say that they were waiting for the angel of the lord to sound the call to bring them to heaven. I would tell them to get up out of the dust and know that the presence of God was with them. I heard the angel Gabriel sound his horn and an entire graveyard of Christian souls went into the light. They just were lying there waiting. Some simply would flee when I put my attention on them. They were not ready to go for the most part. Most of them had lower astrals feeding on them and keeping them connected to the 3rd dimension.
Having an awareness of the presence of God within yourself and others provides you with a spiritual strength that can not be compromised. Darkness flees from the light of God within you and also when the darkness has hold of someone who is not ready to face the judgment they will flee as well. Having the indwelling presence of God within you makes you also very fearless. There is no unknown for you since all you have to do is consult with the lord and the answers are provided to you and your path forward is lit up for you.
We are all like Christ when we follow in his footsteps. He said: "and you will do greater works than I" most people do not understand that this means that you will literally do greater works than were recorded that he has done on Earth if you follow his example. That includes making the lame walk, the dead rise, and demons flee. If you have not done all or most of these things then you are not following his example very well.

I was 18 when I had my first transcendent experience. I was in my barracks room on a weekend alone. I had learned of the Tetragrammaton which is the unspeakable name of God. I learned that by learning the secret name of God that a person could approach the divine. I can not go into this very much in this thread as the experience could fill a book. I left the physical world for a short time and was unseen so as far as I know my body was also transcended. People had looked for me and I was not in my room and there was no exit other than the front desk and we were on the 3rd floor.
When I returned from my audience with God I was changed. I would answer people's inner questions without them asking to their astonishment. The presence of God that indwells within my was strongly awakened and I was aware of his presence all the time. I got out of the military and went home for a while. Then I found I could not stay in the small town I was living in any longer. I left for the city and spent several years there reading in the library for most of the time and working when I had to for money to pay for rent and food. I ministered on the streets somewhat and gained a reputation very quickly. Criminals would not come around when I was present once they knew of me.
More than one of them was influenced by dark forces and tried to attack me. Each time without harming them I would put them down and drive off their dark influence. More than one of them that attacked me came up to me later and apologized and sought guidance. I helped who I could and then when I had learned all I could I traveled to another city.
I did this for many years. I finally met someone who was also a seeker of truth. She was my equal in many ways but a little older than me. We were together for years. I helped her raise her children. I met one of her teachers and he taught me even more of the mind science. He was a gifted person and I learned much from him. He was the first melkizedek priest I had ever known. He introduced me to a lot of information and it made me more confident and stronger spiritually. I learned to listen to my guidance and to hear more clearly that inner voice. It saved me a lot of hardship I tell you.
Our creator is revealed to those who seek with all of their heart, mind and spirit to learn the way. Once you are on the path you can stray but the light is always there to guide you back. Seek and you shall find. Ask and it shall be added unto you. The Kingdom of God is within you. The presence of God is of course within his kingdom. Christ taught the true way to God. Follow that teaching and ignore the distractions of the rest of the Bible. His teachings actually overturn much of the superstitions in the Bible. Once you have a solid foundation spiritually with Christ's teachings then you can use that guidance to find more information and learn more of the higher teachings without fear that it is not divinely inspired. The source of all truth is already within you so you can ask and it will be revealed. Discernment of the truth is one of the gifts of the spirit.

We all know that not all people become ghosts, but what is it that you think makes ghosts exist when they die?
