In simple words, ghosts are the spirits or souls of deceased people. A past event or occurrence can also be considered a “ghost”, especially if it continues to haunt you even in the present. Ghosts have been believed in and talked about since time immemorial, and there isn’t a single culture, religion or civilization in the world that doesn’t know about ghosts in some way.
Ghosts scare many people because of their ability to haunt people, places and things. And if a ghost likes you and decides to stay with you for some reason, the experience can be overwhelming.
If you find that you are haunted, you have nothing to worry about. You can easily get rid of an unwanted ghost. However, before you try to drive a ghost away, you need to understand why ghosts haunt. Here are some reasons why a ghost might want to haunt you.
1. Disloyal conduct
Be kind and fair to everyone. If you hurt or deceive someone, they may come back from the grave to haunt you and it will be very difficult to get rid of them.
2. Desire to be helped
Ghosts may have difficulty moving into the higher dimensions because something on earth is holding them back. The kindest thing you can do with a ghost is to provide a solution to their problems.
For example, the philosopher Athenedoros Cananites was bewitched by the ghost of an old man who kept showing him a certain place. When the philosopher dug up the site, he revealed the remains of the man. The spell only ceased after the philosopher gave the man a decent burial.
People who have not received a proper burial and have certain unfinished business to do can return to earth as ghosts and haunt the living.
“The Unquiet Grave” is an old English folk song about a ghostly woman who can’t move on because of her beloved’s incessant crying. Your negative emotions can prevent your loved ones from moving on. So, leave the emotional baggage behind, smile and live life happily. It will help the dead to move on in peace.
4. Complicated personal affairs
Ghosts cannot rest in peace if they die leaving an unresolved conflict or open affair. A popular English ballad tells the story of a ghost who cannot move on because he had promised to marry his sweetheart. He needed his beloved to release him from the bonds of betrothal so he could move on in peace. The best way to avoid the bewitchment is to resolve all open relationships.
5. Operation of Ouija boards
Many people make the mistake of attracting unwanted spirits by using Ouija boards, playing tarot cards, etc. Never tempt fate this way; you don’t know what kind of ghost you might attract. Before solving a problem with witchcraft, you may find the need to solve your problems with yourself and your life. And if that doesn’t help, have a priest perform an exorcism or find a professional ghost hunting group to drive the ghost away.
