    Do you believe ghosts are dead souls?

    Do you think that ghosts are the souls of deceased people or completely different entities that exist in a parallel or unseen realm?

    I have experienced a fair bit of "paranormal" stuff in my short time on this fair planet.  I believe the answer may lie somewhere between your 2 points, and I also believe that we will never truly understand these enigmatic occurences.

    I think there are ghosts as I encountered one a few times in a house I grew up in. That ghost attempted several times to interact with me and others. But I also think that other times what we perceive as ghosts are in actuality imprints of actions, thoughts or emotions echoing in our timeline from events of the past. Such was a case in an apartment building my husband and I lived in some years ago. That "ghost" was apparently a construction worker and he appeared every night at the same time, performing the same activity and oblivious to any living person observing him. This happened over and over, without difference, so I believe it was an imprint in the fabric of time.

    I believe that ghosts are the Souls of deceased people. 

    Completely different entities that have not incarnated but are from different realms will undoubtedly be experienced in different ways and not necessarily the same way as 'ghosts'.

    As to ghosts, there are theories that some people do not 'go into the light' at death for a variety of reasons and at that time they can become earthbound.  Usually they will attach to a person or place whose energy resonates with their own.

    I believe in the paranormal and have quite a few encounters with different spirits. In my opinion a ghost is someone who has passed to the other side but for some reason chooses not to go on or is trapped in some way.
    As far as I can tell there are two different types of spirits (at least that I have come in contact with) and that would be intelligent, where you get relevant responses and residual, the residual being where the spirit appears at the same time doing the same thing over and over and is oblivious to its surroundings or anyone in it.
