how to live with a ghost - from Sited & Blogged

Question: I think I have a ghost. Am I crazy, and what should I do about it?

Answer: No, you're not crazy. Lots of places, not necessarily old houses, hold energy from the past. There are many reasons why this can happen, and it doesn't necessarily mean you've got an evil entity lurking in your attic. The first thing to consider of course, is what kind of activity you're experiencing. Take some time to keep at least a mental list of what happens, when it happens, and who's around when it does.

Call in a plumber, check batteries, even things like train or subway schedules if you live near one. Ask other family members to be aware. If does happen that you find there're things happening that can't be explained by rational explanation, don't panic. Consider if any of your own family members or loved ones have passed. Investigate the history of the property, if possible.

Consider as well the geography of the place. Here in New England, for example, there's a lot of granite in the soil, close to the ground, and, in our cemeteries, slabs of it. Granite is especially good at holding energy vibrations, so not only are there a lot of houses in New England full of history, but a lot of those houses are sitting on top of foundations or on ground full of what amounts to energetic sponges.

I've lived with a ghost for the last eleven years, and it's perfectly possible to come to an understanding with residents who refuse to leave. (there could be many reasons - including the nature of the haunting itself - why you may need to learn to either accept the haunting or move out.) Most intelligent hauntings - ie, ghosts who can be interacted with - can be reasoned with, in my experience. On the other hand, if you are truly frightened, don't hesitate to call in practitioners who understand how to work with negative energies. One of the worst things to do in the case of a truly malevolent haunting - rare as they may be - is to deny what's happening.

and furthermore, the war will end. blessed be.

I rarely share this info, lol, but my brother is a "ghost hunter". In the past I've helped with some of his "cases" by easing the minds of those who worried about living with ghosts in their homes. I also helped 3 families clear their homes of unwanted entities. Not something that I like to do as much as felt I had to try for the sake of their families.

I don't talk about it because I figure most folks with think I'm looney, lol!

That's some very good advice. We have had ghostly experiences; one of them being our little old Chihuahua that ran through the bedroom and scratched on the door to go out every night for a year--after her passing! Also, my daughter had a ghost in her house for several months after moving in(I think it was her deceased father-in-law checking up on the family.) One day when I came to babysit the kids, the house felt different and I "knew" that he was gone. I asked her if she had noticed it too and she agreed. Haven't felt him around since then. We used to smell his cigarette smoke up in the kids' bedroom all the time.

On another note, I used to read cards but haven't done it for about a year. Maybe I'll get back into it--thanks for the interesting site!
