Ghost Hunting: What is a Haunting?

So what is a haunting? A haunting is an area with a high amount of paranormal activity that lasts over a long period time. Why are ghosts tied in with hauntings? Ghosts are tied in with hauntings usually because of emotional connection with the place. They want to relive there memories at the place they’re tied to. Some on the other hand can’t stop reliving them.

When people are in a place that a ghost is emotionally tied to, it can cause a disturbance in energy. They want to see what those people are doing in their place. They want to make sure that people respect the place that they have a strong connection with. Prisoners that have been in prison most of their lives, patients that have been in hospitals most of their lives, an actor that was in theater would be examples of this. Ghosts also go to a destination because something about that place calls out to them. Also, they may want to go to a specific environment because they never got a chance to go there when they were alive.

Ghosts usually go to places where there is a lot of people and highly vibrant energy. In his book “Ghosts Among Us”, James Van Praggh mentions that they usually choose bars or clubs, because ghosts are able attach themselves easier to people under the influence alcohol. When someone is drunk, their auric field goes down. This is like letting your guard down. Other places that ghosts go to are places with an abundance of fearful energy. Law firms and courtrooms are the place to go for fearful energy. Ghosts use these places to build up their own energy. Hospitals are another place filled with fearful energy that ghosts wonder. Since 9/11, planes are where they go to. Not to scare people, but to watch over loved ones.

So you can imagine going into a haunted building that there would be a lot of fearful energy among the people investigating the place. Ghosts would get their energy that way in order to communicate with you. Here are some things to watch for when you’re in a haunted place or building.

-Feeling unusually distracted or spacey.

-Experiencing strong emotions that seem to come from nowhere.

-Feeling light-headed or dizzy with no physical explanation.

-Oppressive feelings or a sense of pressure in your head.

-Headache or nausea with no physical explanation.

-Having a negative reaction to the energy of a haunted location.

Be safe and happy hunting?
