    I believe all souls are still with us. My son is with me all the time and I most certainly do not think he is ANY of the above.

    This is what i believe, Ghosts can be lost souls, or they are still lingering b/c they feel they have unfinished business or maybe b/c they are not aware they are dead. I also feel that some spirits linger b/c we in the human world cannot let them go either. My mom passed away 3 1/2 yrs ago and for the longest time i could "sense" her at certain times. And its b/c i could not fully let her go and move on. I also feel that spirits remain b/c they had too much regret or anger when they were alive and even fear and they cannot accept they are dead. They also may stay b/c they DONT WANT to move on. i think it depends on the "spirit". I also believe that those who we have lost feel our pain so much that they cannot let go b/c they feel that staying behind is their only way of trying to help comfort us.

    I think it depends on the circumstances that the person died. I think someone who died in a somewhat more calm manner, just don't realize they're dead and try to carry on their life. Other's die in vicious manners, and linger because they are stuck/mad, or won't/can't move on. Then I do believe that there are evil things that enter our world for whatever sick reasons they have to mess with those who're sensitive to them.

    Human beings are just piles of slow moving energy. In periods of heightened emotional stress, we put off more energy which can sometimes get "stuck" in a place., like the tracer after having a camera flash in your eye Which explains why "ghosts" often haunt the place where they were murdered. And then there's the ghosts of the people who died in otherwise calm manners...they probably died in the place they spent most of their time and routine in-have you ever seen a groove that's been worn into a floor? it's kind of the same idea-people do the same thing over and over so much that an impression of themselves is left there. Children tend to have more energy than adults in anycase, so they tend to stick to places no matter what.

    I believe ghosts are souls that are not currently in bodies. The reasons they are "here" & interacting with the living are probably many and to some extent something we couldn't fully comprehend.

    I have been in a couple old houses, Civil War period, that are on my grandpa's farm...one house someone committed suicide in 80's. You'd think out of all the places those would be haunted...nope I haven't seen a THING. So I don't believe in them. Those are the only places I know of that are quiet and have a chance of being even a little haunted.

    I believe they are lost souls with unfinished business, they were tied to this earth by another earthbound spirit, or they simply chose to stay.
