Figuring Out if You Have a Haunting
by Rob Gutro
Ghosts absorb physical energies and negative emotional energy. They also emit negative energy (even if the ghost is a benign personality). The emission of negative energy causes discord in a home, such as fighting, impatience, anxiety, fear. So, if someone in the home is arguing, they're feeding the ghost, and the ghost is in turn, feeding them back with energies that would make them more prone to have the negative emotions. In my books "Lessons Learned from Talking to the Dead" and "Ghosts and Spirits" I explain the difference between ghosts (earthbound) and spirits (crossed over) and how they use energies to strengthen and transmit signals or messages.
If you live in an older home the chances are that a lot of noises happen from the house settling. However, if things move in front of you on their own accord, then you may have a haunting. If its an intelligent haunting you may be able to talk to the ghost and get answers either verbally or by noises, or through electricity. If it's residual, it's just an emotional thumbprint of an event that happens over and over, and cannot communicate with you - like watching a movie.
Because ghosts and spirits are energy beings they have the ability to manipulate electricity in the home. Although I would always check to ensure it's not a loose wire or frayed connection. When my dad died he played with the electricity in my mother's house (I wrote about that, too). If strong enough, ghosts can audibly say words that we can hear, or if not strong enough, their words can be picked up on digital recorders. Ghosts can also move items (apports) and hide them.
If you think you have a ghost, do NOT provoke him/her and say bad things to them. They will retaliate- after all they were once people (or pets). Think of a ghost as an uninvited guest you need to get out of the house.
