Have you ever asked yourself, ‘What the heck was that? Was that a ghost?’
It helps to know a little about ghost characteristics to figure things out if what you think you saw was indeed a visiting spirit from the other-side.
First possibility that it’s a ghost would be if you were in a place with a haunted history. Second would be if the image you saw was dressed in out-of-date clothing. (not an actor in period costume). Another clue would be if it does strange unusual things like walk through walls, or if an unexplained figure shows up in a photo you took, or if there’s a weird mist or an orb floating around.
If you’ve witnessed one or more of these events, then perhaps you’ve encountered a ghost.
Most ghosts reported are deceased family members. They can become visible, speak, make noises, touch you or omit an odor like cigarettes to let you know they’re there. They show up to give you comfort, provide important information or they want you to know they’re nearby.
Perhaps you’ve seen a swirling grey, black or white ecto-mist hovering about three feet off the ground. They’re usually seen in graveyards, move quickly and sometimes morph into a full-blown apparition.
Maybe you could’ve experienced a poltergeist which is a fancy name for a ‘noisy ghost’. They can knock things over, move things, throw things, turn lights off-on, and just cause a whole bunch of unwanted nonsense.
Cold spots and swirling funnels are spirits who hang around a house because, as living souls, they once lived there and don’t want to leave.
Orbs are just wayward souls traveling around who like to have their photos taken. Some even make it into videos.
If you’re confident that what you saw was a noisy, ecto-mist, cold, ghost orb that smells like grandma and goes through walls, then the next question would be ‘what the heck does it want?’
