Dust or Spirits?

Do you think that other life forms exist? Is there a spirit world? Are we receiving spiritual guidance in each moment? Are psychics phony?

The idea that we live on this planet and that we are the only beings seems very unlikely. I believe that our body is just a tool that enables us to live on earth. We are energy but are contained in a body for an earthly experience. That being said, death is such a fearful experience here. Many of us believe that after death there is just a nothingness or void.

Time and time again we are shown in movies, books and from those who have had near death experiences, that those who have passed before us are still around us somehow. Through past life regression, medium-ship and near death experience etc, we know that we are not alone.

We are used to judging only what we can see before our eyes. We scoff or consider it foolishness when thinking that there could be spirits around us. We truly believe that all of the secrets of the Universe have been mapped.

There are many treatments that cover the different areas of the mind and past life therapy is one. Recently, I read the book Many Lives, Many Masters by Brian L. Weiss, M.D.

In it Dr. Weiss, who is a psychiatrist, began using hypnosis and past life regression therapy to treat one of his patient when none of the “typical” psychoanalytical methods would work.

What’s terrific about the book is the fact that Dr. Weiss is a skeptic by nature and is used to thinking logically. In his field, he was trained to thinks as a scientist and physician. That means that everything must be measured and proven by scientific methods or it’s dismissed.

In his narrow way of thinking, Dr. Weiss was in for an awakening when he met Catherine, the patient who changed his way of thinking and living forever. She revealed to him that death was not the end and passed on messages especially for him.

In his own words he relayed that “humankind has been resistant to change and to the acceptance of new ideas. So it is with psychiatrists and other therapists, who refuse to examine and evaluate the considerable evidence being gathered about survival after bodily death and about past life memories.”

Orbs and Spirit Lights

Dr. Weiss took four years to write the book because as always he was worried about what the world would think and about his career. Would they believe him? Rightly so! There are bigger skeptics than Dr. Weiss who might try to pull the plug on his career.

I’ve taken many pictures of myself, family and friends and sometimes what shows up in the pictures is what wants to be seen.

During my search, I’ve found that these images are called orbs of light, balls of light, spheres of light and even ghost lights. These are explained as other intelligence for the believers and dust particles for the non believers.

They have been showing up in many pictures since digital imagery has become popular.  Even if one is a non believer then certainly the image is an anomaly. There are lots of questions that need answers but would we believe the answers.

Suffice it to say that there are many wonders that abound on and outside of this planet that we call earth. All we need to do is to keep an open mind.

Do You Believe That There's A Spirit World?

      Wow! I may have experience things like these, but I guess I am too well occupied with other thoughts that it does not ring a bell in my brain when I am in it. But, yes. I do believe in them too. Very interesting. More power to you Chris Eddy111

      This is so awesome. I believe what you have been photographing are spirits. There are some that are lost and become very confused. Mostly, I truly believe that spirits that are around us are just visiting. I can't wait to have time to read more of your hubs.

      I'm sure you're right foxxy. Your key words were "Our eyes just aren't open to seeing them". That's something though. Thanks for your comment.

      Now I'm scared! NOT, lol, ok well maybe scared a little. Yep, I think there are ghosts/spirits/etc. Our eyes just aren't open to seeing them. Why do you think skeptics insist on saying those orbs are just dust particles and camera flares?

      callmefoxxy, my pen is a mighty sword!
