Ghost Hunting: How Ghosts Communicate With Us

Updated on January 15, 2013

Do You Believe in Ghosts?

Did you know that ghosts have a strong ambition to communicate with us? It’s true. They want your attention more then anything because they want to get a message to you. Unfortunately, they don’t show up in a physical form and start having a conversation with you. It would be the easiest way, but they don’t. Why is that?

It’s because it’s extremely difficult for them to manifest. Manifestation requires a great amount of energy on the ghosts part. If you’re on the ghosts side of things, it’s a lot to ask. Of course, it has happened before and it’s possible for it to happen again. In my opinion, a manifestation happens if a ghost really needs to get a message to someone. Since they don’t do this all the time, how do they communicate then? Their ways of communicating are very subtle, yet clever.

Have you ever lost something and then found it where you knew you had it, but before it wasn’t there? This is one of those ways where ghosts try to communicate with us. Have you ever reached in your pocket for something and it wasn’t there and later on you reached in that same pocket and what you were looking for ended up being in your pocket all along? Again, a ghost was trying to communicate with you. This does require a lot of energy on the ghosts part, but it uses up less energy then manifestation.

My theory to this is that a ghost is setting you up for something that you want or want to avoid. For instance, let’s say you lose your keys and you need to get to work. You find them where you knew you had them and it caused about a 2-3 minute time delay. You’re on your way to work when suddenly you see a huge traffic jam in front of you. Thirty minutes later, you pass by a fatal car accident that had happened. What do you think happened? It’s possible that a ghost just saved you from a fatal car accident. So it is possible for a ghost to cause something to disappear then reappear.

Ghosts try to communicate with us through pictures as well. One of the most common forms of manifestation in photographs are orbs. Orbs are believed to be a partial manifestation of a ghost. I remember during my Grandmothers funeral, my mother was taking pictures of the service. Two particular pictures stood out. There was one picture that had an orb near my cousin. My cousin loved her dearly. In another picture, there was an orb near my mother and my two aunts. I believe that she was trying to get the message to her loved ones that she had crossed over to the after life and that she was saying goodbye.

Ever have those knocking or tapping sounds in your house? Yes, it could be because your house is old or because of the weather, but tune in to it. This is also how ghosts and spirits communicate. I remember reading about how ghosts do communicate with tapping and knocking noises, but I had to test it out. I was sitting there when I suddenly heard a tapping sound from my dining room. I entered and then heard a knock from the den. I entered the den and see that my cat was wanting to come inside. It does not seem like much, but it was intriguing.

Of course, it does not end there. Ghosts also try to help you out through their communication. I’ve had times where I had lost my place in a textbook for school or in a script for acting class. In those times, I’ve had them drop on the floor or blown away by a fan to pick it up and to see that the page or script had landed on the page I was looking for. I’ve also had instances of finding information that I was looking for through listening to my intuition or hearing that quiet voice in my head. It usually happens when I’m web surfing, channel surfing, or browsing in public places. I always feel like something is pulling me somewhere when I’m looking for something that I want. Amazingly, I end up finding what I’m looking for most of the time.

Ghosts just want to communicate with us just like any other human being you run into everyday. They will do anything to get our attention. It’s just a matter of being aware of your surroundings.

      I think people's kneejerk reaction to ghosts is to think their intent is always to harm or cause mischief. You give a lot of great examples here of how they could be trying to help. Well done, voted up.

      Very interesting theory, Manofmystery! But I would wonder why a ghost would want to communicate with the living. Except a strong attachment existed between them. And I think your description would better suit angels. Great hub!

      Have a close link with the world beyond. Boy when ghosts want to communicate they sure will. A while back my husband and I were getting to go out and we always lock our inside doors as well as outer. I locked the bedroom door and was heading downstairs suddenly realizing I didn't have the key. I was sure I took it out of the door. Well we were standing in the downstairs hallway when someone got the key for us. It came falling down from the ceiling above and landed right at our feet. Thank you for the key. I love communicating with them as you can see. Very helpful indeed. Passing this on.

      They are only here to help us. We just have to learn to listen to their messages.
