In simple words, ghosts are the spirits or souls of deceased people. A past event or happening can also be considered a “ghost”, especially if it continues to haunt you even in the present. Ghosts have been believed and talked about since time immemorial, and there is not a single culture, religion or civilization in the world that is not, in some way, familiar with ghosts.
Ghosts terrify many people due to their ability to haunt people, places, and things. And if a ghost falls in love with you and decides to stay with you for some reason, the experience can be overwhelming.
If you find out that it is haunted, you have nothing to worry about. You can easily get rid of an unwanted ghost. However, before trying to scare off a ghost, you need to understand why ghosts lurk. Here are some reasons why a ghost might want to haunt you.
1. Unfair behavior
Be kind and fair to everyone. If you hurt or cheat on someone, they may come back from the grave to haunt you, and it will be very difficult for you to get rid of them.
2. Desire to be helped
Ghosts can find it difficult to move in higher dimensions because something on earth is holding them back. The kindest thing you can do to a ghost is to provide a solution to its problems.
For example, the philosopher Athenedoros Cananites was haunted by the ghost of an old man who kept showing him a certain place. When the philosopher unearthed the place, he revealed the remains of the man. The unrest ceased only after the philosopher gave the man a decent burial.
People who have not received a proper burial and have certain unfinished jobs can return to earth as ghosts and haunt the living.
“The Unquiet Grave” is an old English folk song about a ghost woman who is unable to move on due to the incessant crying of her beloved. Your negative emotions can prevent your loved ones from moving on. So, ditch the emotional baggage, smile and live life happily. It will help the dead to advance in peace.
4. Complicated personal matters
Ghosts cannot rest in peace if they die leaving an unresolved conflict or endless adventure. A popular English ballad tells the story of a ghost who cannot move on because he has promised to marry his beloved. He needed his beloved to free him from the bonds of promise so that he could move on in peace. The best way to avoid concerns is to resolve all open relationships.
5. How ouija boards work
Many people make the mistake of attracting unwanted spirits by operating Ouija boards, playing tarot cards, etc. Never tempt fate like that; you don’t know what kind of ghost you might attract. Before solving an obsession problem, you may need to fix your problems with yourself and with your life. And if this doesn’t help, have a priest perform an exorcism or find a professional ghost hunting group to scare away the ghost.
