To answer the first question – are ghost real – yes, a ghost is real. But why do the paranormal remain on Earth? Some spirits cannot or don’t want to travel to the other side after their demise. It is not very clear if that’s their choice or they do not have any other option. There is no evidence supporting or negating either of these events. But, if we want to understand why some of them tend to remain in this universe in the form of spirits or ghosts, we need to assume that they are here and around us.
Spirits are around us in the form of their aura or soul. The soul is something that is never dying and immortal. Our body is made of matter, and it becomes matter after our death. The soul, however, is something that remains. Now let us look at some of the reasons why some of these spirits stay earthbound :
Spirits or Ghosts Have Some Unfinished Work
The spirits might remain here because they have some job which they want to finish. It can be anything like seeing their daughter get married, or their son gets a job. They remain here as they are not able to break free from the bindings of their living being and want to be present in the critical events of their family’s lives.
A Ghost Lacks the Knowledge of Their Passing
If the person had a sudden death, then the spirit of that person might not even be aware of their demise. They might be feeling as if they are in a dream, and soon they will wake up, and things will fall back in the right place. In many cases of accidents or untimely deaths, the spirits of such people mostly remain. One of the prominent reasons is that they never found closure.
Being there for their family
In this case, the spirit is aware that they have passed away and makes a choice to comfort and take care of their family and loved ones even after their death. Therefore, they decide to make their home their only heavenly abode.
Emotional Connect with loved ones
The spirit might just not want to let go of their family as it shared a profound bond with them. In this scenario, the very idea of leaving family and passing on to the other side where they can’t see them anymore haunts them, and the spirit is yet not ready to accept that reality. Espelliany young children, when they pass on, they want to be in the comfort of their parents. Therefore, children’s spirits don’t leave.
If a Ghost died by someone else’s misconduct
The spirit might want to stay if there was something wrong committed against him that lead to their death. Mostly when it was a violent death or a crime. It might have a strong sense to stay back and explore what lead to its end. In my experience with an ouija board, I encountered one such spirit when I was in my late teens. The spirit told me the exact details of her death and wanted her family to get closure. She told me where to find her remains. And all of it was true!
The ghost or the spirit might want to stay back to seek revenge for their death. In this case, the spirit might be knowing who caused their death and then want to seek retribution for their death. This kind of spirit is called a vengeful spirit, and they have the capability to make their foe’s life a living hell. They use fear as their most prominent tool to intimidate and hurt the person whom they think is their enemy. One should be careful around the vengeful spirit as they can cause severe mental and physical damage to a person.
Ghost fear the verdict of GOD.
This means that the ghost might have done some wrong things in their life, and now they are scared. That God or any other entity that is more powerful than him might make him pay for the mistakes, he made. The feeling of being judged makes them scared to pass on to the other side.
Anxiety and Nervousness
Another reason could be that they were not mentally well at the time of death, so they have no other option but to stay as they are confused and anxious. Even when they become paranormal being. A mentally sound person at the time of his demise does not find it difficult to pass on to the other side. It just happens every day because people die every day.
The corroboration that we presently have supports the reasons that I wrote above, but then there are other ways to look at it. The analysis and the past explorations also suggest that most of the spirits that remain here were sad and confused. This means that happy souls don’t tend to hang around just because they can. We have very rarely seen a cheerful ghost or a spirit. Most of them are either demented or muddled.
So what did we learn? We learned that there are spirits who tend to remain here. The reasons for their extended stay can be numerous. It can be a personal reason or just that they are too scared to leave. There are investigations still taking place to help answer more regarding the afterlife and the story after death. Until then, all we can do is try from our front and use our best judgment to learn more about them without getting mired by any previous beliefs.
My advice to you
Please remember that any physical or emotional discomforts a person experiences can mostly be due to various diseases or emotional conditions he or she is going through. I have seen that majority of cases do not involve paranormal activity of any kind. Paranormal events are extremely rare occurrences. Hence your problems should be first brought to the notice of a qualified medical practitioner. I have often seen that the line between borderline personality disorders or other psychiatric disorders and “spirit possession” is thin. Hence a good paranormal investigator should advise his clients that professional medical care is the first solution or remedy for any physical or emotional discomfort.
Remember, you need to be a sceptic first to develop into a paranormal investigator. You need to rule out every single scientific possibility that is known to mankind to identify anything that is paranormal. Hence travel through the path of modern science, explore and unravel all facts using data and what cannot be explained through science is what we need to explore more through the paranormal arena. Most of your clients may feel desperate due to whatever they are going through. It’s your duty to act responsibly. Guide them through the path of modern science. Refrain from being a doctor or healer. There are qualified medical practitioners out there who can do their job well. Avoid any forms of advice on religious or cultural rituals or for that matter any ritualistic practices.
