Lily Dale is one of my favorite places to host a demonstration. Once when I was here, the ghost of Abraham Lincoln appeared to me. Ghosts among us. Being at Lily Dale made me think about ghosts and the mixed emotions they stir up in the living. When I was a child I could see dead people — and for the most part, they had a positive influence on my life. However, I soon realized that like people, ghosts can be good or bad.
Most ghosts, or Spirit people, come to me from the other side after they have successfully passed over into the light. What is a ghost? Ghosts are spirits — while your earthly body is alive, your spirit resides within it. When your physical body dies, the spirit exits, and a transparent replica of the physical body emerges and moves into the spirit world.
When you transition from your physical body, the spirit that either passes over to the light, or remains on earth is a ghost. The spirits who remain tied to the earth are the ones that you hear about in ghost stories and movies — the ones who, for the most part, have unresolved issues with the physical world Why do some ghosts remain earthbound? They may have unfinished business with someone or something here on earth, or their death may have been so sudden that they are actually unaware that that have passed on.
They are stuck in between — still trying to interact with the living. Some ghosts are so afraid of what lies ahead, especially if their religious beliefs include hell and damnation, and they cling to the earth in fear of what lies beyond. What do earthbound ghosts do? My friend Laura once told me a story that is typical of earthbound ghosts. She was living in an old house in Venice that had been the home to hippies in the 60s.
Even though she was a non-smoker, she was constantly drawn to the corner store to buy cigarettes. The urge to do this was so intense that she sought out the help of a psychic — who told her that there were two ghosts living in the house who had died from a drug overdose. Unable to reconcile their untimely deaths, and were stuck in the old house, and were passing the time by exerting control over Laura.
Why are some places haunted? Ghosts haunt places because they are attracted to the energy there. They might have strong memories — good or bad — associated with a place, or it might be the spot where they met an untimely death.
These earthbound ghosts can cause disturbances in the energy that can be detected by the living. How can I connect with ghosts and spirits? The more intuitive you are and open to the energy of the ghosts and spirits around you, the more likely you are to be able to help them to pass over to the light. By meditating, or putting your intention out to the Spirit people, you can open up a dialogue that can help them — and you!
It will help you to better understand and co-exist with the spirits who share your space. You may also like.
