How Can I See a Spirit/Ghost?
by Christine B.
Of all the questions I am asked as a paranormal researcher and investigator this is the one that is asked of me most often. The second most asked question is “Why can you see spirits but I can’t?” My answer to both of these questions is practically the same, “Are you sure you haven’t seen a spirit/ghost?”
Here are some of the most common types of spirit/ghost manifestations:
1) You see fleeting movement out of the corner of your eye (peripheral vision). This happens often with most of us, but most ignore the experience or blow it off as imagination. Guess what, just about NOTHING is your imagination, contrary to what your parents told you while you were growing up. Sight into another dimension is sometimes visible only peripherally.
2) You had an “imaginary” friend when you were young. Once again—NOT YOUR IMAGINATION! Children are the most susceptible to the spirit world because they haven’t been taught to block them out as yet. If you think about what your youthful friend looked like you would probably discover that it was the image of someone in your family who had passed away, usually a grandfather or grandmother, or in the case of a child, a young cousin. I do have to say that if your imaginary friend was a big rabbit, than it could have really been your imagination, but those types of youthful friends are exceedingly rare.
3) You wake up in the middle of the night for no apparent reason and see a transparent figure either at the end or at the side of your bed. At first you think you might still be dreaming, so you close your eyes; but after opening your eyes again the figure is still there. After watching it for several seconds, it disappears. You are NOT dreaming. This type of visitation is usually by relatives when they believe you are in some sort of stress. Spirits will often also come to you while you are dreaming. If you dream of a deceased loved one, pay close attention to the dream as they are most likely attempting to communicate with you.
4) Have you ever felt as though the atmosphere in a room changes? The air seems as though it has become thick and full of electricity. The hairs on your arms and on the back of your neck stand up for no reason. Well, you might not be able to see a spirit in the room at this point, but you can be sure there is one there with you.
Most everyone has experienced one or two of these events in their lives at some point. When you do, you can be sure that you are in the presence of a spirit!
