If you believe your home is haunted, then you may want to do research on ghosts and hauntings. By reading and learning about the things we are afraid of, enables us to overcome those fears.
If you are dealing with a haunted place, it is important that you know there are different types of haunting that could happen in various areas. Whether you are thinking about being a ghost hunter or you simply want to know more about the topic, the paragraphs below will give you a brief overview on this subject.
Demonic Infestations - These types of hauntings have been debated for as long as we can remember. This is also one of the oldest types of paranormal activity to be reported.
As you may have guessed, this is associated with the presence of demons. Demonic infestations have been rooted in many cultures and religions. There are many individuals who have had an experience with demonic infestations and they will tell you just how real they are.
These entities are usually violent and can harm the victim not only physically, but emotionally as well. With a demonic possession, the spirit of the demon may take over the body of the victim. The entities responsible for these actions are said to be on an entirely different plane.
The Catholic Church has certain priests who are specially trained to exorcise demons.
Before a priest undertakes an exorcism he fasts and prays for days at a time until he feels he is spiritually strong enough for the battle.
It can also sometimes take days and even weeks before a priest successfully exorcises a demon and generally the victims of possession suffer extreme physical pain and anguish while the exorcism is being carried out.
Getting involved with this kind of entity is extremely dangerous and should be avoided at all times. It is worthwhile to note that playing the ouija board can leave a person open to attack from demons according to some experts.
Have you ever heard the word "Poltergeist?" This word translates to mean "noisy ghost." It's true, a poltergeist is known for making loud noises, moving objects and banging on stuff.
You may move away from the home the poltergeist is in, but it could follow you to your next home. A poltergeist may be associated with you or an individual in your house.
Some of these hauntings have lasted for years, while others do not last as long. The Poltergeist is able to do things that others are not able to do. It can toss things violently across the room, create floating objects and move solid objects.
Residual Hauntings - This is a haunting that is believed to re-play certain events that happened in the past. These type of ghosts can be seen doing the same things over and over. There is no intelligence or human interaction - these ghosts do not even realize what is going on around them.
Extremely traumatic or powerful events are believed to be the cause behind this form of phenomena. Take the Battlefield of Gettysburg haunting as an example of this type of haunting. Many individuals have witnessed marching soldiers - even though the battle ended more than a century ago.
If for some reason you suspect that there maybe paranormal activities taking place around you, try reading up and researching information on ghosts and hauntings as this will assist you in coping with any difficult situations you may face.
Conversely, if a friend or relative suggests that your home may be haunted remember that although skepticism is an healthy attribute it is also wise to listen sometimes and to at least consider another person's viewpoint. You may well be grateful for their help and support should it turn out to be something that you do not understand and a subject about which they have much knowledge.
