Q: Can anyone see a ghost?
A: I believe so, yes. It is interesting because you could have a ghost manifest in a room full of people, but only a few will see it. Some people are more sensitive to the spirit world and they will most often see a spirit. However, in some cases even the most skeptical person will be the one who will see the spirit while the true believer sees nothing. One thing to consider is that many times people may see a spirit but not even know it because in some cases a spirit will look as solid as you and me.
Q: Should I be afraid of ghosts?
A: If we are talking about un-clean human spirits, that is to say the spirit of a person who once walked the earth but refused salvation, no you do not need to be afraid. Of course, it is natural to fear something that you do not understand, but ghosts are pretty much natural and common. And the majority of ghostly encounters are benign and even benevolent.
Q: Is it okay to go to haunted locations, like on a ghost tour?
A: Once again it depends on what is haunting the location in question. If it is just a un-clean human spirit, then yes it is perfectly safe. Ghost tours have become increasingly popular in the past few years.
Q: If you feel cold when a spirit manifests itself, does that mean it is evil?
A: No. When a spirit manifests itself, it does so by drawing energy from the environment or from a person which produces the cold.
Q: If I am experiencing phenomena in my home, is it a good idea for me to bless it?
A: It really depends on what is causing the activity. If you are dealing with an evil, human spirit, I think blessing the home would be a good idea. If instead you are dealing with an inhuman spirit, the blessing might provoke the entity and it may retaliate. You should contact one of the paranormal groups in your area. Also, if you feel a blessing is needed, you should consider having it done by a priest or a minister. Just be cautious if you think there may be something demonic going on.
Q: Are the mediums who channel spirits for real?
A: Ah, the million dollar question. I believe that there are some out there who are for real. The problem is all the bogus tv mediums. Then you get the "mediums" who charge people enormous fees. I am skeptical of the mediums who say that they can channel at will, especially for a large fee. But I do believe that there are some legit mediums out there. You just don't hear about them because they use their gifts to help people - not to rob them.
Q: If my house is haunted and I move out will I be safe?
A: Well, that depends on a few things. First, what is doing the haunting? Spirits have the ability to move around. A human spirit, however, will most likely stay at one location. If the spirit is demonic, it certainly has the ability to follow you. Not just from house to house, but to work, to your family or friends' houses, pretty much wherever you go. The next question is why the haunting occurred in the first place. If the spirit was indigenous to the location, in most cases it will stay there. However, if the haunting occurred because of some action on your part, such as a Ouija board or a conjuring spell, the spirit you summoned will follow you wherever you go. The only way to stop this type of spirit would be through exorcism.
