Do ghosts exist or is it all a fallacy?

Shikha Singh



One of the most googled terms on internet debatably is the word ‘Ghosts’ which has always been subject to conjecture. We are often baffled by the thoughts of their existence, do they exist and if so, in what form are they really there? So, are you someone who will not even search the word ‘Ghost ‘when you are home alone, or among the ones who will sense a paranormal activity every time your bucket of popcorn goes missing? If this is the case, we suggest skipping this article for your good night’s sleep.

But hold your horses here, if you’re among those who get intrigued by the thought of horrifying your friends, congratulations you have landed on the right page.

To unwrap the suspense that has been lurking around the concept of ghosts let’s see some frequently asked questions.

What is a ghost? 

When the transition happens from your physical body, the spirit which is stuck between light and earth is a ghost. The attachment, craving, desires, urge, wishes during our life on earth if not, control becomes a weak link in an afterlife. Ghosts are controlled by higher level negative energies and have unconcluded issues with the physical world.

What do ghosts want from us?

We have often seen in movies ghosts horrifying and terrorizing people however this is not the reason. The objective of ghost depends and accordingly changes upon a particular person’s activity.

What leads a certain place to be haunted?

One may feel the existence of a haunted place as soon as he or she starts feeling sudden chills running along his/her spine, adrenaline rush, a sudden drop in the temperature. All these have a direct relationship with the energy present in that area which attracts ghosts. They might have the strong connection with that place, strong memories or it is the place where they met with an untimely death.

It is believed that the world of ghosts is all around us and can also affect us in various possible ways. To satisfy their dire desire they possess a person. As we go deeper into the details of the hierarchy of energies they exert negative energies and power on society and can have a dreadful effect on us.
