    Note that I am not asking whether or not ghost exist because I have no doubt whatsoever that they do. But although I believe they exist I will not pretend to know what they are exactly. What do you think they are?

    i believe that there are many that are spirits of departed people that lived on the earth in human form but are trapped between lives/worlds. i also believe that there are spirits out there that are not and have never been in human i guess i would say i believe ghosts could be a couple of different things.

    ghosts, or rather, spirits, are those who have passed on before us.  Some stay because of some eartly or sentimental attachment,...we are all forms of energy, and  energy can never be destroyed, only change form....there has been discussion as to the weight of one's soul at the time of death, and honestly, we can discuss these things until forever...I have a habit of asking permission of any spirit as to whether I may attempt to capture it in a photograph out of courtesy.  I would do the same for a living person.

    Since I have been to the other side of death it is absolutely spirits of human beings who have died and also angels that GOD have created some who have stayed on his side and the others who rebelled against GOD and was kicked out of heaven. The spiritual condition and maturity of an human being will determine the outcome of what they will experience on the other side of death. Remember this 1 thing that in my Father's house are many mansions [dwelling places] for human beings after they die and crossover to the other side of death. GOD will decide based upon that individual person's life on the earth of what they will ultimate get and experience on the other side of death. It is uniquely tailored to every single individual human being choices that they have made on the earth while alive and kicking on planet earth. Beam me up GOD to my personal dwelling place in heaven. There is another dwelling place on the other side of death and that is called hell. Do not go to hell.

    I believe they are the spirits/souls of people who have passed on. when my dad died his spirit came back home (he died when out of the country)...I experienced his energy first hand, and so did his dogs..they totally reacted to it, in a happy way, like they were happy he was there.
