Do we create ghosts with our minds?

Are ghosts simply thought forms? Do we make them up with our own energy? There are many scientists who theorize that ghosts are no more than a product of our own thoughts and energy. The hypothesis is that we create them ourselves. The idea is that if you make up a back story about a fake ghost and put energy into the belief, then an entity will form from people’s energy and unconscious thoughts that matches the back story.

For example, there have been experiments where groups of people set out to create a ghost. These research groups planned their ghost. They made up a list of characteristics of a fake person who was said to have died. They then try to make contact with the spirit they created. They held séances and asked questions in an attempt to get responses such as knockings or moving objects.

What these groups found was that they could get responses from their made up ghost. They would ask questions about things that they had written about the ‘ghost.’ In response, they got such things as knocking sounds. However, what they found was that the ghost could only respond to things which were put into the dossier when he was being created. He couldn’t answer questions about things that were not put into the fake bio.

But things get stranger from there. An unexpected outcome puzzled researchers. When they created these ghosts, there was more to them. That is, the ghosts they made up became independent and began to act on their own. The ghost would be there whether the researchers were at the location or not. In some cases problems arose and poltergeist activity picked up. Unwanted happenings would begin, and an entity which they believed that they could control all of a sudden became something that they couldn’t control.

Because of this, some researchers question whether it was ever a thought form to begin with. They suggest that it was another spirit pretending to be the ‘made up’ ghost all along. Are these playful or malicious entities that are using gullible researchers to manifest? Are there entities out there waiting for the chance to tap into group thought and energy so that they can act out?

We are not sure. However there are some troubling flaws in the ghost creation theory. Though it could account for some hauntings, it certainly does not explain all of them. In some cases, those who experience a haunting at a property have no knowledge of ghosts attached to the land. In fact people move in ‘blind’ to the history of the land. Then they experience apparitions and other ghostly manifestations when they have had no knowledge of those who once lived in the house. They can’t create it because they don’t know the history of the land. They only learn about the ghost once they have experienced dreams or apparitions which identify the ghost. When they investigate, they find out that the ghost’s identity matches what they have been seeing and dreaming about.

Basically the ghosts came first in these cases. Knowledge of the ghost came second. Though some may argue that someone could have ‘created’ the ghosts at some prior time, what about properties that have no history of hauntings? What about land that has no legends and no prior activity at all? What about these hauntings that spring up where owners have no prior knowledge and there is no known history of who has lived on the land? In these cases, the people didn’t create a ghost. No one before them made it up. It just happens.

Furthermore, there are paranormal researchers who question whether the scientists actually make up the ghosts at all in their experiments. They point out that it is possible that spirits or other entities imprint the information on the scientists’ unconscious. That the bio ‘created’ by scientists wasn’t fake at all; it was what spirits were communicating before the experiment.

Perhaps ghost creation isn’t creation at all but merely a method for spirits to manifest. We do know entities need energy, and what better way to get it than to feed off a group excited to do research? Maybe it is possible to have both. There may be both spirits of the dead and thought forms too. At this time we honestly can’t rule out either. However there is evidence which can point to both being true at the same time.

There is so much to learn in this fascinating field. And every day holds promise for us to open more doors and learn about the unexplained.

A kiss from a ghost

Everyone is curious about the paranormal. What is out there? Is it friendly? Can we interact with it? Ghost hunting teams are common now, and people are no longer afraid to speak publicly about ghosts, aliens, and other entities. I’m sure you either have experienced something paranormal, or you have heard about someone having supernatural contact.

There are all kinds of spiritual contacts. Some are pleasant. Some are horrible. Some are downright strange. What we all know is that spirits do exist. Depending on who you are, you may welcome the contact or be absolutely terrified of it. What you might not know is that a ghost can give you a kiss. That’s right. Pucker up because a ghost can give you a smooch.

You may wonder what happens when we cross over. Who do we become? What can we expect? Do we stay the same? I had someone say to me “I don’t know about you, but I’m kind of attached to who I am and really want to be me on the other side.”

Good news! Yes, people who have passed on keep their personalities. You don’t suddenly become totally different. If a man was a hopeless flirt in life, he still is on the other side. Some women are super outgoing and greet everyone with a peck on the cheek. Such people keep that aspect to their personalities when they cross over. You may come across such ghosts when going to a haunted location.

Yet you do not have to go to another location to experience this. A widow may feel the slight kiss on her lips as her deceased husband tries to ease her sorrow. A widower may report feeling the sensation of his wife’s lips on his cheek when having a bad time. This is quite common and has a deep effect on the spouse left behind.

There are also cases of cheeky ghosts who steal kisses when someone attractive comes around. These ghosts can be grabby and inappropriate. People will actually feel a kiss on the lips or cheek. Naturally people can be freaked out by this, and it creates lots of problems for a location. This is especially true if it happens in a place of business. It happens more than you think. In hotels where this takes place, guests will flee in the middle of the night. It has happened.

A traumatized child may feel a kiss on the forehead from a mother who passed. Children often have spirit contact after the death of a loved one. Reassurance is very important for children, and those from the other side recognize that. They make every effort to help, and one of the ways they do that is to let us know they are with us. They do their best to show affection and use touch, i.e. kiss, hug. This can mean the world to a child who is missing his mother or father.

For you pet lovers out there, I have interviewed people who lost their pets, and later they felt the sensation of their dogs and cats licking their hands and cheeks. Usually it happens when people are sad and grieving for their beloved animals. Individuals will see the imprint of their animal on the couch or bed as if moving toward them, and then they feel the kiss. We love our animals deeply, so this is so reassuring. It shows our animals survive death and still love us.

When it comes to spirits of humans, there are patterns to how the kisses feel. Those who have felt this ghostly kiss describe it as soft and sometimes very cold. Others say it makes their lips tingle. I’ve had people tell me it makes their entire bodies tingle. When coming from a loved one, it can make you feel a complete sensation of love. There is no other feeling like it.

There is so much more to this phenomena. Sometimes witnesses actually see the spirit when they get their kiss. If conditions are right and the spirit has a lot of energy, there can be contact and manifestation. It is not common to see and feel a spirit at the same time. Usually it is one or the other. But it does happen here and there.

If you have lost someone, you may get a kiss from the other side. In a haunted location, a flirty ghost may plant a quick kiss on your cheek. In those situations, there have been some cases where the spirit follows someone home! Though not common, it has happened. There are all kinds of situations where a spirit may reach out and kiss you.

Don’t forget that we live on after death. And don’t be surprised if you get a kiss from someone you love who has passed on. It may come as a complete surprise out of the blue one day. Let it remind you that life continues. You don’t really lose you loved ones. They go on after death and will come to reassure you.

Paranormal lights & hauntings

If you are a paranormal investigator, then you are familiar with these things. In some of the most haunted locations worldwide, investigators capture a particular form of paranormal phenomenon, especially when there are physical manifestations. This phenomenon looks like a small moth or lights which streaks across the room. Some say they look like small comets with light tails. When the small lights go around the room, it is common for them to actually enter a person in the room. At that point, the person will experience headaches, dizziness, and nausea. They also will feel cold and sometimes out of sorts. In other words, people touched by these things can almost feel drugged.

The lights are some sort of paranormal contact. There are several theories as to what they are.

  1. Alien
  2. Ghost
  3. Interdimensional entity
  4. Biophoton produced by people

First, the lights could be aliens who are foreign to our planet. The truth is that we don’t know what an alien would look like. They could literally be anything. Why not a form of light? Though the lights are more commonly associated with a haunting, there have been recorded cases where alien abductees have video of themselves with the lights circling them. This happened after the abductions.

Could it be ghosts? Do those who have crossed over present as the moth-like lights. These tend to be highly active cases. Perhaps those who die change into this form of a light energy which can be seen by our cameras.

Another option is an interdimensional entity. Much like an alien, they could look like just about anything. Maybe there are times that something from another plane of existence makes its way into our world and causes havoc. Some theorize that when we first used the atomic bomb, we ripped a hole into another dimension. There is nothing to say that an interdimensional creature could not be here. And again, we would have no idea how it would look.

Then we have the idea that it is a living agent causing the lights. Researchers are studying biophotons which are produced from human energy. Cameras can capture this light energy. Since these phenomena present as forms of light, maybe it is just us projecting our unconscious outward. People may not even know they are doing it. However, given the right conditions, poltergeist activity can manifest along with the lights. Who is to say that it couldn’t be us putting out biophotons? If you want to get really creative, you could argue that all of these answers are true. Different locations which demonstrate a variety of paranormal phenomena may be caused by different things.

I have interviewed and studied over 150 alien abductees from all around the world who have had remarkably similar experiences. In these cases, there was physical evidence left behind in the form of body implants, missing fetuses, radiation burns, and more. This alien abduction phenomenon leads us to the doorstep of ET’s.

Dr. Julie Beischel has done fantastic research into afterlife communication from the deceased which points to spirits being involved. Dr. Barry Taff is famous for his exceptional work into poltergeist phenomena with humans as the living agent. This could mean that we are the culprits. And Paul Eno has done much research about parasitic interdimensional entities who feed off of our fears. Anymore, not one of these theories is far-fetched. All of this interesting research points to the existence of a multitude of suspects. It is a strange world that we live in, and as we learn more about the invisible world around us, it gets even weirder.

I’m always open to hearing theories or if you have experienced this. It may take a while for me to respond because I get so many emails. But I do respond if I receive it.

Sex can trigger spirit activity

By Deborah Kauflin, Ph.D.

It may sound strange, but having great sex can open spirit doors. Yes, I know, that sounds weird, but it really is true. Think about when you have hot sex. When you are passionate, you produce energy. Your mind relaxes, and you can almost fall into a trance. Basically passion excites the mind and body. Your sexual state of mind and energy combine like dynamite which can blast open a door to the other side.

Those who live in haunted locations will experience this, though they may be reluctant to talk about it. They are often embarrassed about what happened and feel shy that someone was watching them in their intimate moments. So witnesses are less likely to be open about what happened.

However, you don’t have to live in a haunted location to experience this. There are many people who have told me that paranormal activity BEGAN when they were having sex. Though they were fully into what they were doing, they couldn’t help but get distracted when they saw shadows moving around them as if watching. They describe the shadows as being blacker than the darkness, and the shadows had form. Usually there are more than one shadow beings when this happens. What scared some of the witnesses was when the shadow creatures bent down to get close. One woman said ‘it was like they were leaning in to get a better look.’ She said the ‘thing was a pervert.’

People also report objects moving around the room while they are making love, things that couldn’t have been knocked around by their sexual activity. Whispers were common too. It was as if they were on display in some gallery, and entities were talking about it. These were isolated locations. There were no other people around, and no radio or other devices were on. Furthermore, a few told me that lights would flash on and off when this happened. They would hear thumping sounds out of nowhere when they stopped. It was like something was banging on the ceiling or walls. And no, there were no people in rooms above them having fun of their own!

Two men spoke about seeing what looked like an alien when they were having sex. It appeared in the corner of the room, and they both saw it. They swear that it had big black eyes and a large head, and it seemed to ‘walk through the wall.’  They are convinced that the entity was an extraterrestrial. In fact, there are many who say that the ‘spirits’ watching sexual behavior are aliens who are observing us on Earth.

On the other hand, several witnesses reported seeing human figures that they could see through. Those people swear that the entities were ghosts. The truth is that we don’t know exactly WHAT is watching when people are intimate. But there is SOMETHING that is attracted by human passion.

An interesting point was that those who said that they saw alien creatures did not continue to experience paranormal activity after the sighting. Yet those who saw black shadows or see-through humans DID continue to experience paranormal activity. This was a clear distinction and points to multiple types of entities.

For those who did continue to have paranormal activity, the ‘hauntings’ tended to be negative. This makes sense because one would think that decent, good entities would respect privacy and not watch intimate encounters. Think of the peeping tom who stalks neighborhoods at night. These aren’t stellar citizens. They are predators. So this raises questions about the safety of those who experience paranormal encounters while having sex. That is, do those beings who come to watch sexual encounters have bad intentions?

Another theory is that the people themselves CREATE the phenomena. That is, the individuals present are somehow interacting with their environments and causing the poltergeist activity.

One thing is for sure. The mentality of being sexually excited coupled with the energy produced by sexual behavior opens some kind of portal or draws/creates entities. It seems to act like a magnet to them. If you have had such an encounter, please let me know. I keep witness information confidential.
