One of the most frequent emails that land in my inbox is from someone who is experiencing what they believe is a ghost in their home.
A Ghost is a technical term in the world of psychic mediums.
It doesn’t apply to all Spirits - it applies to one specific type - a ghost is a human Spirit who has not crossed over after death (also known as an Earthbound).
While there are many reasons why some people stay on Earth and don’t cross over death - most people can agree on one thing - they don’t want Ghosts in their home. The fact is - Ghosts are everywhere, and your home may not be an exception. However, the first step in dealing with any issue though (even a Ghost-related issue), is identifying if there is one. One thing's for sure:
you can’t ‘get rid of a ghost’ until you know you’ve got one.
So, how do you know if you’ve got a Spirit person on your hands?
