Ghosts are spirits that have lived in physical (corporeal)
bodies then crossed over. Their causes of death vary as does the reasons why they haunt specific places and people. Ghosts
can be human or non-human. They may appear as ectoplasmic entities or in more recognizable forms.
Spirits always exist around us though we are
unable to see into their realities as they vibrate as a different frequency than third dimension. If you compare this to tuning
into a television program, you cannot link to their channel as the frequency is not in your range. Animals are more aware
of ghosts than humans are as they can see and hear in higher frequency than we can.
Ghosts have personalities often similar that
which they had while alive. Just because a person dies, does not mean they will become instantly enlightened, and angelic.
As on the Earth plane, it takes many incarnations of clearing and healing.
Multidimensional entities have always been part
of our experience in third dimension. Ghosts sightings have been reported in most parts of the planet - with some reports
being written, photos, drawings, folk tales, even carved on stone (hieroglyphs in caves).
Some of the most popular places they haunt are
sacred burial grounds, cemeteries, sacred/power sites, places where there are strong magnetic fields, places of religious
worship, caves, places where acts of violence occurred, taverns, theaters, ancient ruins, castles, and perhaps even in your
home. Many people see ghosts of family members in their home.
Ghosts are not to be confused with Angels, Spirit Guides, ET's, Nature Spirits, or other entities from different realms.
At this time in the planet's history we are going
through physical and spiritual changes. Earth changes cause shifts in our weather patterns and magnetics. All of this leads
to a dimensional merging that will make it easier and easier for ghosts/ spirits and other phenomena from the other side to
be experienced in our third dimensional reality.
HOW GHOSTS CONTACT US
Ghosts connect to you by affecting one or more
of your senses:
- Spirit manifests for you as
an ectoplasmic being
- You look in a mirror and see an ectoplasmic shape thought the ghost is not visible in the room
Electric lights or appliances flickering on and off in the room
- Peripheral vision - you see spirit out of the side of
your field of vision
- A object in the room moves - that is linked to the ghost - such a picture of the ghost when it
was in a corporeal body
- Floral fragrances - which are
the most commons
- A scent associated with the spirit. For example - if the spirit smoked cigars while in a physical body
- you might smell a cigar scent in the room.
- A tickling sensation on your
body - could be a kiss or a touch by spirit
- A pressure on top of your head (which means the opening of your crown chakra
to receive messages)
- A chill on the back of the neck or head---->hair standing up on your body
- A cold breeze
passing through the room
- Noise - Spirit turns on an
electric appliance - usually linked to them.
- Rapping?s include thumping, knocking, tapping
or bumping. In ancient times rapping was thought of as an omen of approaching death.
- Ghost phone calls from a deceased soul - usually
a family member. It usually means that the deceased soul wants to impart a farewell message. Many such calls occur on days
of importance such as Mothers Day, holidays or birthdays. People who have received phone calls from the dead report that the
voices are often exactly the same as when the person was living. The telephone rings normally but the connection has static.
The voice of the deceased tends to grow fainter as the call progresses. Sometimes the voice fades away completely. In some
very interesting cases the call is placed long distance and connected by an operator. Checking with the telephone company
usually turns up no evidence of a call on their records.
Phone calls are sometimes placed to the dead
as well. A person places a call to someone only to find out later that the person was already dead at the time of the call.
WHY DO GHOSTS HAUNT?
Ghost haunt people and places for many reasons.
Often they have messages they wish to convey
before they move on to a higher realm - or back to the creational Source.
The messages may concern the circumstances surrounding
their deaths - such as murder, suicides, accidents, other foul play.
Often the ghost has unfinished business - such
as inheritances/wills - finding lost papers and other items belonging to the ghost.
Many ghosts do realize that they are dead - as
the death was instantaneous rather than from a prolonged illness.
Many ghosts choose to live close to the family
they were part of when they were in a physical body.
Some ghosts like to remain in the physical frequency
of the home in which they once lived.
As in all things some ghosts are positive while
some are negative in energy.
Often a soul does not know how to go to the creational
Source. Not all ghosts understand about the other realms. Angels and spirit guides often assist them on their journey.
A manifested ghost can be seen by one or more
people at the same time. But there are instances where only one person in a room can see the ghost while the other people
Spirits exist in higher frequency realms. When
a spirit manifests as a ghost - it usually is able to produce something that is physical.
BRIEF HISTORY OF GHOSTS ~ GHOSTS THROUGHOUT HISTORY
Belief in ghosts can be traced back as far as
2,000 B.C. This first record of a ghost comes from the Babylonian story The Epic of Gilgamesh, and is etched in clay
tablets. The story tells of the hero Gilgamesh and the ghost of his dead friend, Enkidu.
"And Nergal, accustomed to absurd orders, obeyed
as soldiers do.
He freed Enkidu to speak once to kin
and showed Gilgamesh how to descend halfway
to Hell through
the bowels of earth.
Enkidu's shadow rose slowly toward the living
and the brothers, tearful and weak,
hug, tried to speak,
tried and failed to do anything but sob.
"Speak to me please, dear brother," whispered
"Tell me of death and where you are."
"Not willingly do I speak of death,"
Enkidu in slow reply.
"But if you wish to sit for a brief
time, I will describe where I do stay."
"Yes," his brother said in early grief.
my skin and all my bones are dead now.
All my skin and all my bones are now dead.
no" cried Gilgamesh without relief.
"Oh no," sobbed one enclosed by grief.
London - Tower of London
The Tower of London has a long and bloody history.
Over the past 1000 years, the Tower of London has seen more than its fair share of murders, executions, tortures and poisonings.
It's little wonder therefore that a few of its victims should remain there in death.
Many ghostly legends are associated with the
Tower. In 1483, two young princes were murdered in the Tower, and their ghosts were reported to have haunted the tower until
the year 1674, when their bones were found and buried in a proper ceremony.
The most famous and most often reported ghost
in the Tower Green is Anne Boleyn. She was beheaded by her husband, Henry VIII, in 1536. She is now said to carry her head
under her arm on the eve of her death. Anne has also been seen in the Tower Chapel. One night, a guard captain and a sentry
set off on their rounds, but when they reached the chapel they both noticed lights coming from inside. The captain sent for
a ladder and climbed up to a window to look within. He found the interior lit with a blue-white light, and a ghostly procession
of men and women in Tudor costume could be plainly seen walking down the central aisle. At the head of the procession was
the spirit of Anne Boleyn. Suddenly the light faded and the chapel was left in complete darkness.
In 1816 a sentry was walking his beat in front
of the Jewel House when he saw a dark shape moving on the steps of the building. He approached the figure just as the moon
came out from behind some clouds, revealing a huge bear lunging at him. Panicked, he struck out at the bear with his bayonet
but the blade simply passed through the bear, which then engulfed him. He was later found unconscious by another sentry and
died shortly after.
Other Tower ghosts include Sir Walter Raleigh,
and Guy Fawkes.
In 1816, a palace guard who was on duty spied
a bear. Not realizing he was facing an apparition, the guard attempted to lunge at the creature with his bayonet. The guard
reportedly later died of shock.
In 1864, a soldier saw a ghost and again attempted
to use his bayonet. The soldier fainted when he realized his antagonist was a ghost, and was later court-martialed for neglecting
his duties. The charges against the soldier were eventually dropped when two witnesses came forward to support the soldier's
On the 12th February 1957 a guardsman came face
to face with one of the ghostly residents at the foot of the Salt Tower. It was 3.00 am when something struck the roof of
the sentry-box in which he was sheltering from the rain. Stepping out, he looked up to see what it was, and saw a shapeless
white ghost on the top of the tower. He shouted, bringing out the guard captain and the duty warder. They both searched the
Tower, but could find nothing. Is it a coincidence that on 12 February 1554 Lady Jane Grey was beheaded on Tower Green, which
lies less than 200 yards away from the Salt Tower?
The Brown Lady of Raynham Hall
The Brown Lady is famous mostly as being one
of the most reliably photographed ghost in history. Although she has not been seen since 1936, she is said to wear a long
brown dress or cape. No one knows who the Brown Lady is, or how she is connected to Raynham Hall.
The first sighting was reported in 1835 by a
house guest, Colonel Loftus. He actually viewed her twice. He said she was wearing a brown satin dress and had only black
empty sockets for eyes. Another sighting was made by Captain Frederick Marryat. He intentionally slept in the "haunted room,"
but instead caught a glimpse of the Brown Lady an upstairs hallway. His description was the same as Loftus', except this time
the Brown Lady was carrying a lantern. Marryat happened to have a gun with him, and fired point-blank at the figure. The bullets,
of course, passed right through the ghost. The ghost was not reported again until 1926, at which time it was viewed by two
In 1936, the famous photograph was taken by photographers
Captain Provand and Indre Shira during a shoot for the magazine Country Life. Shira saw the ghost on the stairs, and
instructed Provand to take a picture.
Borley Rectory is often called "The most haunted
house in England." The site of the rectory originally held a monastery, which was inhabited by Benedictine monks.
'Ghostly' image on tape at Henry's palace
December 2003 - Ananova News
It was formerly the home of Henry VIII and has
long reported to be haunted.
The 16th Century palace in south-west London
is well known for alleged supernatural activity, but nothing suspicious has been caught on film before.
However, in October this year, this curious image
was caught on the palace's CCTV footage.
On several occasions security guards were alerted
to an open fire door in an exhibition area of the palace. After securing the door each time, they returned to their office
to view the CCTV footage to see who had opened them.
On the first occasion the footage showed the
doors flying wide open, but no evidence of why they had.
On the second, the guards were stunned when a
ghostly figure in period dress suddenly appeared on the screen and closed the doors. The same thing happened on a third day,
but again no figure appeared.
Stranger still was that a visitor had noted in
the palace's visitor book that she thought she had seen a ghost in that area.
One of the palace's "custody warders" (security
guards) said: "I was shocked when the CCTV footage showed an eerie figure in period dress in the doorway. It was incredibly
spooky because the face just didn't look human.
"My first reaction was that someone was having
a laugh, so I asked my colleagues to take a look. We spoke to our costumed guides but they don't own a costume like that worn
by the figure. It is actually quite unnerving!"
Ghosts in Ancient Rome
There are many references to ghosts in ancient
In 44 B.C., Brutus, an army general, spearheaded
a plot to murder Julius Caesar.
On March 15, he and his co-conspirators stabbed
Caesar to death.
Shortly thereafter - Brutus was visited by a
huge apparition/ghost claiming to be Julius Caesar, and who then revisited him the night before battle. The purpose of the
vision became clear to Brutus, who took it as an omen of doom. The battle was lost and Brutus killed himself afterwards. In
Shakespeare's Julius Caesar the phantom is described as being that of Julius Caesar.
There is a festival called Da Jui or The Hungry
Ghost Festival which occurs on the 15th day of the seventh moon. It to appease the ghosts of the unloved or uncared for. According
to Chinese mythology, the gates of hell open during the seventh month, allowing spirits to roam the earth. Spirits of those
who have died at their own hands, in accidents, by drowning, or hanging, seek souls on earth to take their place in hell.
Lanterns in water are used to guide these bad spirits away, and offerings of fruit and coins are left for the ghosts to take
on their wanderings.
Japan's Obon Festival uses drums and dancing
to ward off the evil dead, much in the same manner of the Hungry Ghost Festival.
United States - Winchester Mansion
The Winchester Mansion, in San Jose, California,
was built by Sara Winchester, the widow of William Winchester. Sara visited a psychic who told her that she must build a house
large enough to house the souls of all those who'd been killed by Winchester guns, and Sara spent the remaining 36 years of
her life - until she died in 1922 - doing just that.
The mansion's construction is just as odd as
Sara's personality. There are stairways and doors that go nowhere, secret rooms and passages, and elevators that only go up
one floor. Some believe that Sara had the house built in a confusing way so that the spirits wouldn't be able to find her
and seek revenge. The number 13 is prevalent throughout: 13 bathrooms, stairways with 13 steps, and so on. There is a rumor
that Sara would never give her workmen the day off, because she was afraid that the day she stopped building she would die.
One day, however, after many complaints, she finally gave her staff a day off, and that is the day she died.
HAUNTINGS - WAR ZONES - ACCIDENTS
Sometimes when the deaths of souls has been tragic
- the frequency of the deaths remains in a specific geographic location which sometimes becomes activated on the anniversary
of those events. These are sometimes referred to as 'Psychic Imprints'.
Wherever massive deaths and violent confrontations
occur in a specific area, there is always the possibilities that ghosts may roam that area.
In many war time battle zones - where hundreds
of souls are killed in a short span of time - their souls remain trapped in the dimensions of the Earth plane - waiting to
be freed. Many of them are stuck there because - they spirits do not know they have died - there are not enough guides to
show them to the other side - the portals to the other close and trap them between dimensions.
The souls might even continue to fight battles
in the astral plane (fourth dimension) even though the war ended a long, long time ago. They may not realize that they have
died and will continue to wage battle with other trapped souls.
This could result in some degree of unexplained
manifestation on the physical Earth plane - such as bushes moving - unexplained noises , etc. 'Psychic sounds' are by far
the most reported phenomena in all cases of haunted areas.
Another way of looking at this are - parallel
realities - where as in another reality that is parallel to us - the battle is still playing out.
People passing within the frequencies of the
area where the battle occurred - will pick up the energies of the battle and the cries of the trapped souls. This will occur
with stronger impact on the anniversary of the battle - when a sort of portal opens to those events. There are psychics /
mediums who know how to release the trapped souls - so they no longer haunt the area.
The American Civil War (1860's)
many incidents occurred that result in ghostly manifestations
to this day
The bloodiest battle ever fought on American
soil occurred during the Civil war.
On a balmy afternoon in June of 1863, Federal
General John Buford peered through his binoculars across a field just west of the town of Gettysburg. He was perplexed as
he gazed at a column of Confederate soldiers marching along Chambersburg Pike. He knew this body of men was too large for
a raiding party - they were an advance element of Confederate General Heath?s division. This resulted in the pivotal battle
of the American Civil War.
Three days later, fifty three thousand men would
soak the fields red with the blood of the dead and dying. That would help explain why the abundance of ghost sightings are
reported time and again from visitors who frequent the town and battlefield year after year. It is as well with little wonder
that Gettysburg has obtained the reputation of being the most haunted place in America. Even the skeptics who refuse to believe
even in the possibility of ghosts, won't refute the possibility of this haunted locale.
On July 1, 1863, what began as a skirmish soon
escalated into a heated battle with the arrival of Federal General John Reynolds' infantry. The Confederates pressed, and
soon found the Union troops retreating chaotically towards the little town. The streets were thick with soldiers as the Federals
retreated toward a designated rallying point just beyond town at Cemetery Hill and Culps Hill. Confederate sharpshooters took
up positions through out as their prey was easy and plentiful. Some took position in the Farnsworth House, a small home situated
along Baltimore Pike. Their perch was magnificent due to the locale on the main road through town. They mercilessly fired
upon retreating soldiers, often hitting their mark. The streets were strewn with dead.
Today, the Farnsworth house functions as a Bed
& Breakfast. Bullet holes can still be seen on the southside wall. It is here that many guests report seeing an apparition
at the end of the bed during the night, while other guests have reported doors opening and closing through their own volition.
One woman incredulously has reported her infant being lifted by unseen hands and gently placed back down.
The Devils Den is a large patch of rocks where
many Confederate sharpshooters took refuge in order to exact their death toll upon Union officers atop the hills of Little
and Big Round Tops. In 1970, a tourist approached a park ranger and inquired about stories of Gettysburg being haunted. The
Park Service cannot answer such questions but the ranger asked why? The woman stated as she was taking photographs of the
Devils Den, a man suddenly appeared beside her and said, 'What you're looking for is over there.' Pointing northeast toward
the Plum Run, she turned to look and the man vanished. The ranger asked for a description, and she felt he looked ragged and
like that of a hippie. Barefooted with torn butternut shirt and trousers, wearing a big floppy hat. This was often the attire
of Confederate Texans. A few weeks later, the same ranger was approached by yet another visitor with the same question. The
man said he was taking pictures and a man mentioned to look elsewhere and disappeared. His description was identical to the
The Little Round Top is an unimpressive hill
overlooking the Devils Den and the wheat field. As the extreme left flank of the Federal lines, it has had its share of carnage.
During the filming of the movie Gettysburg, many reenactors would find themselves with some down time. Although the movie
was not filmed on the battlefield, it was not uncommon for these extras to walk upon the battlefield in their period uniforms.
One small group of men found themselves atop the Round Top, admiring the view as the sun began to set. A rustling of the leaves
behind them alerted them to the presence of a stranger. From the brush emerged a rather haggard looking old man, dressed as
a Union private. The man was filthy and smelled of sulfur, a key ingredient of the black powder used in 1863. He walked up
to the men and as he handed them a few musket rounds, he said 'Rough one today, eh boys?' He turned and walked away. As the
reenactors looked upon the musket rounds, they looked up to see the man had vanished. When they brought the rounds into town,
they were authenticated as original rounds 130 years old! Many visitors have reported the smell of gunpowder, and have heard
gunshots and screams from the Little Round Top over the years.
Friday, July 3 1863 was a new day already polluted
with the stench of death and war. For two days, 175,000 men have engaged in the bloodiest battle before or since on the American
continent. The morning was somewhat uneventful, with the exception of some fighting at Culps Hill; which had ended by late
morning. At 1:00 p.m., 140 Confederate cannon opened fire on the Union center. For two hours, the largest cannonade ever witnessed
pounded the Federal lines. So fierce was the shelling, that one could not see across the mile of open field to ascertain whether
or not their targets have been hit. So loud was the shelling that the attack was heard in Washington DC; some 80 miles away.
This was the preamble for one of the most infamous military events. This was the preamble for what was to become known as
After the second hour of the cannonade was up,
some 12,000 Confederate infantrymen emerged from the woods. Formed in battle line, they began the deadly march across the
mile of open field. How the Union soldiers must have gazed wide eyed as 12,000 fixed bayonets glistened in the summer sun,
all preparing to converge on a single stretch of stone wall known as The Angle. Long range cannon fire sent explosive shells
into the rebel ranks. As they neared, the artillerymen changed to canister shot; a typed of buckshot fired from a cannon.
Closer still the rebels marched; closing holes in the line left by soldiers killed en masse.
A deafening musketry opened from the Yankee lines
behind cover of the stone wall. Still, the Confederates came. As the survivors reached the stone wall, brutal hand to hand
combat ensued, but alas, the rebels, tired and outnumbered quickly lost momentum. The entire charge lasted less than an hour.
In that time, 10,000 Confederates lay dead and dying. With the failure of the charge, the battle ended. Robert E. Lee retreated
back into Virginia. Thus ended Lee1s second invasion of the north. Thus ended the Confederacy's hope for independence. Although
the war would continue for two more years, the Army of Northern Virginia would never fully recover from this loss.
The Angle is a beautifully maintained area of
landscape. One can still look out across the field from where Pickett's Charge originated. A park ranger while on routine
patrol one night noticed a man on horseback. As the rider neared, the ranger wondered who would be on the battlefield so late;
on horseback. Upon closer inspection, the ranger noticed the attire of the rider. It was that of a Civil War officer although
the allegiance could not be ascertained. The unknown horseman approached to within 10 feet of the car and promptly disappeared.
Other visitors have reported the sound of galloping horses in the immediate area of The Angle, although none were present.
Sounds of the cannonade have permeated through time as people report hearing the thunderous roar of battle. One visitor even
reported seeing Robert E. Lee himself, sitting atop his horse, Traveler, on the opposite side of the field. A resident of
Gettysburg, and amateur ghost hunter mentions that during a stroll across the field on a warm summer night, cold spots were
common. Going from balmy humidity to sudden cold, so cold he could see his breath, the fellow continued the path of Pickett's
I have met other psychics who have been to these
grounds and reported the pain and anguish from the energies of the soldiers who died in that battle.
Two of the most bloody battles fought were Chickamauga
and Stones River, both in Tennessee. Nearly 125,000 men fought at Chickamauga from the morning of September 19th to the 20th
of 1863. When it was all over, the combined casualties numbered 37,129. They compare with 23,582 at Sharpsburg (Antietam)
known as the "bloodiest day of American history" and 43,454 for the three days of fighting with larger armies at Gettysburg.
Chickamauga is derived from an ancient Cherokee
word meaning "River of Death". And death was all around this heavily wooded area occasionally spotted with uncultivated, vine-strewn,
thicket- matted stretches of ground sometimes disturbed by outcroppings of limestone rock. In other words, land that no farmer
would have bothered with since it would have required a massive amount of work and toil to bring up to minimal farming standards.
The real prize that the Union army hoped to gain from this battle was capture of Chattanooga which was the rail center and
major city of the Middle South. It was the greatest Southern victory of the entire war.
There are several legends about ghosts associated
with these battles -
Perhaps the most bizarre story concerns "Old Green Eyes". Who or what is Old Green Eyes?
Old Green Eyes was a soldier who died in the
There are two legends concerning his death.
One is that a Confederate soldier's head was
severed from his body which was blown to bits by a cannon ball. All that was left to bury was his head and, according to legend,
on misty nights he roams the battlefield, moaning mournfully, searching for his body.
Another legend is quoted as saying that Old Green
Eyes roamed the area long before the Civil War and was even seen moving among the dead at Snodgrass Hill during a lull in
the fighting. Probably the most stubborn phase of the campaign was at Snodgrass Hill which is some of the roughest and hilliest
terrain in the entire park area.
Many people visiting the park near dusk have
seen two big glowing eyes approaching them and have heard an agonizing groaning sound which sent shivers up and down their
Charlie Fisher, a forest ranger, says that in
the early 1970's two different people both wrecked their automobiles against the same tree. They both sworn to have seen Old
A man named Ed Tinney did see Old Green Eyes
on several occasions. He saw the ghost one foggy night while walking along one of the trails which wind through the park.
He said the shape was human-like but wasn't human. When he first saw it, it was less than twenty feet away and passed right
by him! He described the hair on the "thing" as long, like a woman's hair, with eyes almost greenish-orange in color. It's
teeth were long and pointed like fangs and was wearing a cape which seemed to be flapping in the wind, even though there was
no wind! The next thing he knew, it just disappeared right in front of him.
