Psychics with Jobs; The Ghost Hunter
Ghost whisperers, ghost communicators, and ghost hunters. These titles conjure images of seances, exploring old abandoned buildings and ancient sites under the cloak of darkness, scanning with sensors, and the classic canister vacuum removal technique seen in the movie Ghost Busters. Many people question as to whether ghosts are real and hauntings of people and places are possible. Those that have experienced hauntings and anomalous events first hand would vouch for their existence. But exactly what are ghosts, how does one communicate with them, and ‘remove’ these energies when they appear to surround a person or occupy a space or place? Ghost hunting has evolved from a quirky hobby to a source of entertainment and curiosity for the masses.
What is a Ghost?
A ghost is an apparition that is associated with someone who is deceased. Ghosts can roam freely and be associated with geographical and physical structures. Many ancient cultures believed that ghosts were due to the fact that the spirit does not separate from the body and was able to continue to exist in some form after death. In some parts of the world, ghosts, especially deceased family members, are considered as real as the living and are even honored and given a place at the table for meals and ceremonies.
When physical space is haunted it is believed to be the result of strong residual emotions that were once associated with a person or place. If an individual is haunted it may be due to the connection that a person had with the deceased spirit. Hauntings may include apparitions, moving objects, strange lights or orbs, changes in temperature, disembodied sounds such as voices, laughter or screaming, and music playing.
There is much folklore that surrounds this belief of ghosts. It is still widely popular to tell classic ghost stories around a campfire or during the Halloween season for spooks and entertainment. Many cultures around the world associate certain funeral rites with the prevention of the soul returning to ‘haunt’ the living.
Modern Ghost Hunters
Ghost hunting has come out from the fringes to a mainstream form of entertainment with shows such as “Ghost Hunters”, Ghost Adventures, ‘Ghost Hunters International’, and ‘Ghost Nation’. Most of these are centered around detecting paranormal activity and ghosts present in places using specialized equipment. Whey an anomaly is found, they will tap into the entity and communicate.
Ghost hunting equipment is known to help detect ghosts and there are many dedicated shops that sell various types of lights, sensors, night goggles, Geiger Meters, Thermal meters, thermal cameras, and Electro-Magnetic Frequency (EMF) detectors to hunt for ghosts. One of the most curious tools for ghost hunting is the Ghost Box, which is a radio device that scans frequencies to detect Electronic Voice Phenomena (EVPs) and communicate with spirit. Some people claim to have heard human-like voices communicating through the ghost box.
The Original Ghost Whisperers
The early 19th-century spiritualist movement started out as a religion where one of their aims was to communicate with the deceased. Spiritualism emerged at a time when the society of the day was challenging old views of the world. The theory of evolution was a hot topic and the concepts of ” animal magnetism” a term coined by German doctor Franz Anton Mesmer, spoke of invisible energy or ‘magnetic fluid’ flows through humans and animals alike. The medical community disproved his theories, however, the spiritualist movement adopted this premise for spiritual healing. In 1848, James Braid developed the method of hypnosis or mesmerism branching out of animal magnetism.
The spiritualist movement was big in upstate New York in the mid- 1900s which coupled with women’s suffrage and the anti-slavery movement. The region was a hotbed of the sharing of ideas and information. Seances in private homes would be filled with those wanting to communicate with spirit using techniques table tilting, table rapping, and physical mediumship techniques.
The Truth About Ghosts
Whether you believe ghosts to be real or imagined, ultimately use your own inner knowing to uncover the reality of ghosts. From a psychic perspective, ghosts are not what is seen in movies, television, and scary stories. It is possible to read energy in a space in the same manner that one reads the energy around a person. Disembodied energies can linger and remain in a space or around a person. Using psychic tools, these energies can be cleansed and cleared, creating a greater sense of freedom.
Can Ghosts be ‘Removed’?
Ghosts are energy and can be transformed. Ghost Hunters ‘remove a ghost’ which is largely due to the belief of those involved in the activity. If you are experiencing a haunting, it can be helpful to have a reputable psychic look at the energy and ‘clear space’ for you. There are legitimate ways to clear spaces energetically, removing energies that are unwanted, known as foreign energy, and setting it to the vibration of your choosing. It is important to use discernment when a psychic is claiming that they will remove beings or spirits for an exorbitant fee.
A Psychic Perspective
It is possible to read energy and sense beings in people and places using clairvoyance. There are also methods of clearing and removing energies using psychic tools and meditation techniques. The advantage of learning to use psychic tools to work is that it creates a safe space and a grounded container to remove unwanted foreign energy and return you to a state of being truer to who you are. Having a grounded environment free of unwanted energy allows you to stay clear and focused and have a general peace of mind.
