Since ancient times, ghost stories and tales of spirits who return from the dead to haunt the places they left behind have featured prominently in the folklore of many cultures around the world.
A rich subset of these tales involve historical figures ranging from queens and politicians to writers and gangsters, many of whom died early, violent or mysterious deaths.
The concept of a ghost, also known as a specter, is based on the ancient idea that a person’s spirit exists separately from his or her body, and may continue to exist after the person dies.
Based on this idea, many societies began to use funeral rituals as a way of ensuring that the dead person’s spirit would not return to “haunt” the living. Places that are haunted are usually believed to be associated with some occurrence or emotion in the ghost’s past; they are often a former home or the place where he or she died. Aside from actual ghostly apparitions, traditional signs of haunting ranges from strange noises, lights, odors or breezes to the displacement of objects, bells that ring spontaneously or musical instruments that seem to play on their own.
Ghosts have the power to cause harm and pain to humans. They also have the power to cause happiness and success to humans. Any form of energy apart from the physical human energy, has a power to make humans successful or not. All depends on the circumstances surrounding the person’s death and the cause of the demise of the person. They give revelations through dreams and send messages to what a person must do to be favoured and lucky in life. All a person needs is to get an interpretation of those dreams and work on its intended meaning and purpose.
However, ghosts don’t gift or disburse physical items. Things like cars, houses, land, clothes, furniture, money among others are some of the impossible acts of ghosts. Since they’re in a different form of energy and somehow spirits, they can’t hold things of physical nature or use it. A ghost will never get hold of furniture or documents and present it to any human. Anything that’s not used in the afterlife or spiritual realm, can’t be given to you by any ghost. Money is part. It is a material not being used in the spiritual world so it can’t be transferred to any human. Ghosts don’t send money because they don’t have the power to. Favour, good-luck, bad-luck, evil energy and protection can be given to human souls to make them progress in life and be successful or not but not items of physical nature.
Ghosts are beneficial. You just have to know how to use them to your benefits. However, they have limits of operation and boundaries of possession of power. You must know the kind of ghost that keeps appearing in your dreams, giving you illusions and also appearing physically to you. When the third eye is activated, you’ll see ghosts in their true form. Sometimes you can communicate with them if only they want to. However, it takes a deeper form of spiritual power to engage ghosts to yourself and your benefit. They also have times and seasons of coming to the physical world. There will be a time when they can’t come anymore and they’ll be forever trapped in the underworld.
