What Is A Ghost

A ghost is an alleged non-corporeal manifestation of a dead person (or, rarely, an animal). It is often thought to be a manifestation of the spirit or soul of a person which has remained on Earth after death. According to some beliefs, a ghost may be the personality of a person after his or her death, and not tied directly to the soul or spirit. Every culture in the world carries stories about ghosts, but they vary across time and place, with disagreements both as to what ghosts are and whether they are just figments of imagination or a part of reality.



Types Of Ghosts

1. Residual Haunting - Where an event that involves a ghost plays out and there is no interaction between the ghost and a human. This haunting poses no threat.

2. Interactive spirit - Where you might see, hear, or feel cold spots there will always be good and bad even though experiences might be frightening.

3. Non-human spirits - Known as demons or devils, they are dangerous and can cause harm.
