We use the word ghost and spirit interchangeably but there really is a strong difference between them. According to the late Hans Holzer, professor of Parapsychology and writer of 119 books on the subject, “Ghosts are similar to psychotic human beings, incapable of reasoning for themselves. … Spirits on the other hand are the surviving personalities of all of us who pass through the door of death in a relatively normal fashion.”

We learn from him that ghosts are tied to the location of their death, usually a sudden or tragic one, and they often don’t realize that they are dead. In most cases, they have “unfinished business” as the deceased person does not accept the way in which they died. The simplest form of unfinished business can be as innocent as a person being attached so strongly to their home that they cannot leave it behind and pass over. They are known as “caretakers” and want to stay to make sure the building is being taken care of properly by future owners and also to their approval. At the end of the scale, unfinished business can take the form of dark energy when a person’s death is extremely violent and unexpected.

Surprisingly, only a small percentage of paranormal sightings are true ghosts. The majority of them are really

What Is The Difference Between A Spirit Guide and An Angel? By Keen.com

If you’ve spent much time in spiritual development circles or on New Age websites, you’ve certainly run across references to spirit guides, guardian angels, archangels, the angelic realm— and many people use these terms fairly interchangeably. But a spirit guide is not an angel, and there are many levels of angelic beings, including the archangels.

My clients are fascinated by the concept of spirit guides and angels. I like to offer the following definitions to people so they have a clearer idea of what energy they are comfortable with and might like to work with.

What is a Spirit Guide?

We all have spirit guides—whether or not you believe in them or have yet to make contact, you have at least one guide who is always present to assist you. A spirit guide is a soul that has reached a certain point in their evolution so that they aware and expanded enough to assist another soul in their evolution. Guides have been incarnated as humans, so they understand the human experience. They are capable of a level of non-judgment, compassion, and love that most of us can only guess at.

Spirit guides have consciously and purposely taken on the role of being a guide. They want to assist you; it’s their job! They can’t intervene in your life unless you ask. I encourage all my clients to find a way to cultivate an awareness of and a relationship to their guides.

Guides are like friends but with greater wisdom and unconditional love available. Typically, we all have more than one. We receive guides at different ages and stages of life, though usually we are done receiving new guides by age 21 or so. We can call on “specialist” guides and may receive temporary guides from time to time to help with specific issues in life. I haven’t met anyone who has more than seven guides; nor have I met anyone who doesn’t have at least one.

Spirit guides usually fulfill different roles in our life. For example, I have two guides who help with healings and one that is more of a personal confidante and helps with emotional issues. One guides me spiritually, and I know there is one more, but I haven’t yet made personal contact with it (something to look forward to). Some people work with their guides to be better parents, to excel in their career, or to specifically improve in the arena of personal growth or healing.

Contact with my guides comes about through specific meditations, in healing work, or, once, in a lucid dream. I see them in my mind’s eye—and they look like people. They have different ethnicities, dress from different time periods, and sometimes they tell me their names. Everyone’s experience is different, though, so don’t expect your guides to appear like anyone else’s.

Spirit animals exist, too, though they are different from a guide who has had a human soul. Often spirit animals are conduits of wisdom or act as protector spirits or companions.

What is an Angel?

Different spiritual traditions describe the angelic realms in various ways. There seems to be agreement that there is a hierarchy of angels, and

Aura Cleansing – How to Cleanse Your Aura in Less Than 10-Minutes

Instant Aura Cleansing – Do This NOW!

Instant Aura Cleansing - A Powerful Technique to Cleanse and Uplift Your Aura Now!Are you carrying negativity and distortion in your aura? If you don’t regularly cleanse your aura… The answer to this question is likely yes… Even if you don’t realize it! The good news is that aura cleansing can be easy.

So today, I’m going to share with you a simple and yet, powerful practice to cleanse your aura and raise the vibration of your energetic being.

Without regularly cleansing your aura, you may likely be noticing some symptoms of needing a good cleanse. Feeling sluggish? Tired? A bit off… Or maybe you’re just not really feeling like yourself?

These are all signs you’ve taken on some harsh energy and that its time to cleanse your aura!

Aura Cleansing is a key skill to learn on the Spiritual Awakening path… Let’s look at exactly how to do it now.

Watch Now:

But first… What’s An Aura?

First a quick refresher… Your aura is, essentially the multilayered energy body that surrounds you in every moment.

Depending on your personal energetic structure that’s been created through the spiritual practices you do and through the level of your consciousness, how your aura is structured may differ a bit.

But one thing is certain. Everyone has an aura and as you go throughout your day to day life, your aura naturally takes on and absorbs energies from your surroundings.

Cleansing Detrimental Energies

Aura Cleansing Made Easy with this powerful and yet simple techniqueSo this is where aura cleansing comes in. It’s a method and process you can use to cleanse out any detrimental energies you may have taken on. Cleansing out the dense energy, thought patterns and lower vibrations of other people and places you may have taken on.

Cleansing your aura empowers you to shine with more of your authentic light, and authentic truth.

Raising Your Vibration!

Also, when your aura is cleansed so that it clearly and brightly shines around you, it has a way of raising your vibration. A clear bright aura empowers you to be able to reflect the highest divine qualities of your soul in the physical.

Your clear aura also acts as a protective mechanism. Because your aura is able to take in and store detrimental energies when it’s clear, it serves to protect you in this way.

How to Know if Your Aura Needs Cleansing?

But when the aura becomes very clouded or torn, (it can get ripped and all sorts of things) it becomes less effective in protection and can actually weigh you down.

It’s not really that your aura is weighing you down. It’s more that whatever energy the aura absorbs begins to weigh you down.

Either way, the simple remedy is of course, to cleanse your aura.

So that’s what we’re going to do now.

You Can do This On Your Own

I want you to know that you can do this process all by yourself. However, if you’re new to calling in energy, visualizing and flowing energy through your being, I do recommend that you invoke the assistance of your team of Guides, Angels and Ascended Masters of the highest Christ light.

However, as you step into more of your mastery and true sovereign divine nature, it’s not required to ask for any external help and you could do this all on your own, so both ways are fine.

But for now, to begin, let’s call in assistance.

Please don’t be mean to ghosts by Victoria Baltimore Prutschke

ghost-1280683_1920

I’ve been wondering why most movies and videos portray ghosts as evil, scary, and malicious.  There are billions and billions of people on this earth that have encounters with ghosts….are they all bad.

Does a ghost have to look scary to be a ghost?  Does it have to do bad things to people to be accepted on the big screen?

I’ve had MANY encounters with ghosts….spirits, whatever you wish to call them, and none of them were scary looking or even mean for that matter.  Most of them came to me for help.  Some of them came to warn me about impending danger regarding myself, or someone else.

I just wish I could know the real reason why people are so afraid of them, and why they have to make them out to be something terrible in order to get people to watch the movies they make.

It sure would be refreshing to have a ghost series or movie featuring happy, cute, helpful ghosts or something similar.

Please, don’t be mean to the ghosts.

Namaste
