A ghost - or spirit or apparition - is the energy remnant or "trapped soul" of a person who has died and has somehow gotten stuck between this plane
of existence and another. Some people say the next plane of existence. From understandings I have have gathered, it can be just another existence, not
always a higher last stop "heavenly plane" Spirits do incarnate on this plane again and again. A spirit knows when it is dead, and funerals help
with this, however there are fragments of a spirit that remain "earth bound". They can be bound to their previous life and or location for a myriad
of reasons. Usually those that do no wish to leave where they are, nor acknowledge their death. Also when people died due to a trauma and or highly
emotional circumstance their energy remains here, vibrating disembodied.
Ghosts can manifest through several ways. Can you clear a ghost? Usually yes. This can be done by changing the resonance of the place you are at. Fear
of a ghost also makes them stronger as you resonate in a deeper level through the fear, your almost like a battery. A ghost does not understand that
time has passed. We apply time in this reality, though elsewhere it does not exist, We can be strange occurrences to them in their reality. They no
longer have a functioning brain to imprint new memory recall, so they are trapped without brain processing of new events and memory.
- Aparate to the naked eye or camera as a solid, ectoplasmic, vortex, shadow, orb.
- Noises and disembodies voices.
- Draining or playing messing with electricity, A way to continue their energy vibrating in this existence. In a way they a a form of
- Moving objects
- Temperature variations like cold spots Why cold? as heat is a result of resonating energy, and a entity survives off that so they "suck out
People can be responsible for seeing or manifesting a ghost through their own issues.
Photography is an effective way to capture a ghost, the light speed is different to the naked eye.
Most images can be explained by natural means.
An electromagnetic receiver can assist in picking up a ghost.
Digital Cameras are more likely to capture a ghost however as opposed to film they will also can capture dust or light flare electrical capture of
A mist is often mistaken as a ghost, but is usually attributed to smoke or fog.
I've done a thread on this image, it is yet to be debunked.
Orbs are the most photographed paranormal image. They are thought to be round as they expend less energy to exist in this form than to aparate as a
body. They can often be explained away.
Dust is a usual culprit as well as reflecting bright light sources such as the sun, light bulbs etc., so if you are ghost hunting and taking photos of
orbs, remember to not photograph near bright lights.
If you can discount the above, you most likely have a spirit orb, which can be both passed spirits of the collective, or a earth bound spirit. A guide
spirit of family member passed can be around you, its not always a "haunting"
Orbs emit their own light they are their own energy. Light and time can travel at different rates. A orb with blurred tail is indicative of a
movement of energy
They can be seen as different colours.
Theory #1 - Color difference in orbs is caused by "chromatic distortion" which is a fancy way of saying that our eyes perceive different
wavelengths and shapes as varying colors. If a particle happens to be of a certain makeup or shape, it will tend to absorb certain wavelengths of
light and reflect others, thus giving the perception of a certain color. Paravision has an interesting page on the anatomy of an orb. Theory # 2 -
Orb color difference is caused by the energy of the spirit who is represented by the orb. For example, some ghost hunters believe that red and orange
orbs represent a spirit who is angry or in need of healing. Other shadow chasers claim that red is a color associated with an energy that seems to be
on guard duty (often watching over a last outpost, or a loved one who has died). ghosthuntingsecrets.com...
Ectoplasm always reminds be of Ghostbusters, LOL it shows up in a photo as opaque, but again can really be fog or mist. Why ectoplasm appears non orb
like, I am unsure, still researching that.
