What do you believe ghosts to be? Trapped souls, psychic energy, a field of some sort? This is a question I’ve been pondering for some time. From my own experience, I think that what we call ghosts are not trapped souls, but are the energy from that person that is attached to an area or left behind.
This can be intelligent energy in that it can communicate with us, or what we call residual energy where a pattern or activity keeps repeating itself, regardless and unaware of what is going on around it.
With the psychic work I’ve done, I don’t find that what is left here feels complete and 3 dimensional enough to be a soul or the full essence of someone whom has died. Instead, I have found that what is there is that part of a person’s energy, personality, intellectual activity, etc that was particularly active or important in the area. This energy has left a recording.
That doesn’t mean that we can’t have more fully rounded conversations with the dead. I have had people come visit me, but it’s very different. They pop in to chat and go away again. Quantum Mechanics and String Theory have been providing some possible explanations that make sense to me. It seems very possible that we can bleed through or cross into other universes or dimensions. It is possible this is what happens when we have a conversation with a more complete being.
Crossing over between worlds might also account for some of the variety of creatures that make up some ancient mythology. Maybe fairies, dwarfs, elves and such are real, but live in other dimensions. Sometimes our worlds are close and we can see or interact between the barriers. This fits with my own experience seeing something that looked more like a dwarf or an elf – I’m not sure which. I saw him in a place I could tell was an opening, and he wasn’t fully in this plane.
What are your ideas and experiences with this?
