There’s a Ghost in Our House. Can We Keep Him?

by Yvonne Perry

American people have a great interest in the subject of the paranormal and especially ghosts. Ghost Whisperer and Medium are very popular TV shows and millions each week view Sci-Fi, Discovery, and Travel channel that air documentaries about ghosts and psychic phenomena.

Approximated one-third of Americans believe in ghosts, and twenty-three percent say they have interacted with a ghost. The truth is ghosts, angels, spirit guides, and entities are around us all the time. Their impact on us and our lives is unmistakable, but we have been taught to disbelieve in them or ignore their presence during our normal waking consciousness. If we do have a supernatural experience and share our story with others, we may be told it is only our imagination. Some people may think we are crazy.

Ghosts live in the world of subtle energy, which seems to exists outside of our physical world and beyond the range of our five senses. However, ghosts can and do interact with our physical world and have been known to open doors, hide things, make noise, move furniture, and turn electronic equipment on and off. If you have a ghost in your home, you can either banish it or you can allow your otherworldly visitor to stay. After all, ghosts are people who were formerly alive and breathing but no longer have a physical body. Like those of us in body, each ghost has a distinguishing personality. Some are loving and some are not. Others are looking for help, reassurance, or guidance. Most disembodied souls are too frightened to take their next step in the afterlife. Your coaching these “lost” souls may help them find peace and confidence to cross over into the light.

If you decide to allow a ghost to be part of your family, you must be clear about your rules, boundaries, and limitations. Let the ghost know it will have to leave if your rules are not followed. If your ghost is causing disturbances in your home, or if its behavior threatens your safety or the safety of others, or you/your family feel afraid of it, then it is time to have it move on.

Knowing how to ignore the presence and avoid the influence of entities and environmental energy can be a good thing for those who are so energy sensitive that they see, feel, and hear in another dimension much of the time. These people, known as empaths, are described in Whose Stuff Is This? Finding Freedom from the Detrimental Thoughts, Feelings, and Energy of Those Around You. An empath is sensitive to what is obvious as well as unseen things such as ghosts and the thoughts, emotions, and illnesses they sense around them. Empaths may get hunches, see mental pictures, hear voices, or have a gut feeling that supplies hidden information about people and situations. They may also get a physical sensation in their body that lets them know where another person is afflicted or suffering.
