What is the value in knowing that ghosts or spirits exist? It confirms that life goes on and that we survive physical death. When we lose our fear of death, a more expansive life becomes available to us. What is the value in interacting with ghosts or spirits? It demystifies a natural experience for us. It shows us that, just as here on Earth, there are many personalities to be dealt with and many levels of understanding, many dimensions some call it, many planes of existence. Most of the ‘ghosts’ you encounter that inhabit a particular haunted place might be termed earthbound, and often have a repetitive routine that seems to be ultimately pointless. If they are able to communicate, they may be ‘stuck’ on particular sentences and phrases, despite what you say to them in your attempt to engage them in dialogue. So far that describes a lot of physical people I know as well *LOL* Continue reading
I welcome opportunities to practice what I know. We sure got it in October 2003, with a busload of tour attendees on an overnight excursion. This is a great example of why I’ve learned to look everywhere around me for evidence of happiness, well-being, synchronicity and enough of everything. It’s all a matter of training my mind to respond deliberately and appropriately to whatever is going on in the moment. It’s all a matter of training my mind to see what I’d like to see. . Here’s a great example. In October 2003 we went on our first ghost tour guided by my friend Barbara Dobson of Spirited Adventures. After a stop on the ride up, we all begin to notice a smoky electrical smell coming from inside the bus. The driver had checked out the vehicle and nothing seemed amiss, so we began our trek to our haunted village. Barb was sitting behind the driver, facing our guests and talking as we rode along. I was sitting in the first seat on the opposite side, keeping a watchful eye on the driver’s control panel. We had the door open to expel the bit of smokey smell when suddenly from beneath the control panel to the left front of the driver, there’s a snap and crackle, and a quick flash of smoke. The driver quickly checks everything and doesn’t seem concerned, so I figure it’s under control and the smoke soon subsides.
