Ghost or Spirit?
It’s widely believed and accepted that a ghost and spirit are the same thing. This is technically true but there are subtle differences between the two and at best it’s meant for classification. Many paranormal enthusiast will tell you that spirits do not like to be called ghost. We’ll be going over why some spirits are called ghost and why the term properly applies to them.
In most cases a spirit is someone who has passed over as they should have or has accepted what has happened to them. They most likely endured a death that, be it painful or not, was meant to be. A natural death if you will. They are generally more kind and cautious when interacting with the living and may even seem helpful. Most reports of spirits are from the family members of those who have passed away.
Ghosts are spirits that have died tragically. In most cases their death was horrible or very unnatural. The event of their death leaves the spirit tangled and even unwilling to accept what was happened to them. Their interactions with the living also are more malevolent and ill-tempered.
It’s important to understand that my statements are a generalization. This may not always be the case but my research shows that it’s the case more often than not.
A good example of the exception would be a young girl dying in a car wreck. Her death is most likely due to an outside occurrence, such as a drunk driver, and isn’t that always tragic? Weeks or months go by and her parents began to notice strange things happening at home. Through whatever means possible, such as a ghost hunting team or a psychic, they find out that she’s been trying to tell them she’s OK. They don’t need to worry and she’s ready to move on.
Ghosts are spirits that need help moving on or help accepting what was happened to them.
It’s important to understand these differences so that proper steps can be taken when dealing with a haunting. Often spirits are around their family members and trying to get a message across. Ghosts tend to be someone, who you may not even know, that is disrupting your way of life.
