Why Do Ghosts Appear More Frequently In Windows And Stairwells?
When I was a little girl, I'd avoid looking into windows of houses, old warehouse buildings, new office buildings, converted apartments, and living spaces above downtown storefronts.
Necessarily, if I wanted to have a ‘medium-free’ or ‘spirit-free’ day, and just trying to go for a coffee - I ignore windows and avert my eyes away from their direction.
Always avoiding a casual window glance, one might imagine can be hard to do, but if you’ve been practicing it since childhood, it just becomes a habit after a while. Nothing unusual, just not trying to be distracted by a ghost. And so far, this habit works pretty much like a charm.
I’ve always seen Spirits in windows, and I’ve rarely questioned it - only accepting their appearance as a fact of my life. I don’t even point them out anymore to friends and family; it merely is.
Sometimes, if someone I'm with catches a glimpse of a ghost in a television screen or a window pane, I will bring it up, but typically only when asked.
Until recently, didn’t even consider or think about this phenomenon, but after reviewing lots of tape, I began to notice that many pictures and video clips with alleged spirits or ghosts in them, were viewed through windows or with a window behind them.
Much to my same experience, many of my clients, who often have clairvoyant and spirit-sensing abilities, have expressed fear of looking in windows because of witnessing those in Spirit. If you have fear of spirits in general, this is normal, but it can be released and bring a great deal of peace to your life when you do. Check out my eCourse on releasing fears here.
So, why do Ghosts hang out in windows?
Or perhaps, the question is really:
Why is it easier to see and capture a ghost in a window, versus another location?
Most of it has to do with the magnification of energy in a confined space. But there are three reasons, generally:
Those in Spirit form no longer have a physical body.
Meaning they reside primarily in other forms of energy, made mostly of light and ether, and other unknown particles.
As light comes in the window from above, the same energy used for warmth and growth in other beings, can be used and transmuted by Spirit, to appear in physical form, in a window.
The more light energy accumulates in any location, the more popular this space is for a Spirit to exist.
Many, including myself, consider that windows can be portals for this reason.
You can use crystals, wind chimes, and prisms, to invite in Angels and Guardian Spirits, through the windows. These things welcome Light Energy into the home - and doing all this, can shift a negative portal to a more positive one.
Just as you would place a plant next to a window, to make it easier for the plant to access light, Spirit often chooses to stand next to the window, as it is easier to access excess available energy in this location.
Heat (energy) exchange happens directly behind the panes of a glass window, as evidenced by temperature fluctuation. Heat is radiating inward on a warm and sunny and coolness is being transferred on a cold and cloudy day. If you’ve ever stood by or touched a window, you’re familiar with this concept.
Energy exchange is happening here. And, to appear in apparition form (as a figure), those in Spirit need to use the energy of the space around them, especially if they have not crossed over into the Light. That’s right - Ghosts, who are spirits who have not passed over after death into the Light, need to use energy from the earth plane to appear, communicate and continue to exist. For many Spirits, the energy of heat exchange is utilized to exist. While others choose to utilize residual energy exerted in a stairwell, or attach themselves to a living person, utilizing human energy to exist, heat works too.

In any case, those in Spirit, still existing on earth, often choose locations of trapped energy transfer, also known as energy lost in physics, such as behind a window and use that energy to manifest in full form.
It’s a commonly held belief that those in Spirit often appear with the assistance of reflective surfaces, such as on television screens, on window panes and old mirrors. As much as a reflection can bring in a Spirit, it is not the inherent reflective properties, as much as it is the residual energy stored (here’s that trapped energy again) in this object of reflection itself.
Television is a space gathering electrical, light, and conducted energy into your home daily, and a window is bringing in light and heat energy. These are energetically charged objects. Mirrors, hold residual energy from all of the attention that we humans focus and spend looking into these objects.
What about stairwells?
A stairway is a confined space which traps energy too, and over the years of people climbing stairs, exerting energy, releasing energy - there remains an excess of energy in the space of a stairwell. Many people will see residuals down long hallways or in stairs for this reason.
Since those in Spirit need energy to appear, this excess energy is available for use to materialize. This would explain why in many ghost shows, photographs, and personal experiences with the paranormal do tend to become amplified in the stairwell area of a building, in addition to the window area of a building.
Want to use your own windows to your advantage?
I suggest using the windows of your own home to welcome in Spirits of the Light - Guides, Angels, and Loved Ones - many all enter through your home via the conduit of a window, guided by the Light energy.
Place crystals, chimes, prisms, stained glass or any object you cherish and brings you joy with the intention of inviting in loving and protective Spirits - and there you have it. Doing this and you’re officially inviting in love, protection, and guardianship for yourself and your family. Many people do this naturally by placing colored objects near windows - the energy of that color, often reflecting the guardian angel or guardian spirit minding the property.
So, spirits appear where the energy allows them to and these spaces in our home can generate quite a bit of energy throughout the day - as can space with lots of electronics, such as kitchens or offices.
