The thought of being visited by a spirit is something scary to all. If a spirit or ghost tries to visit you it wants to make you aware of something you might have done or are doing.
Do you ever wonder if you are being visited by a spirit? Do you have a feeling that there are spirits in your home? Are you curious if a loved one may be trying to connect?
Before we launch into the common signs that a Spirit energy is near, it’s important to understand the types of energy we may encounter. This includes ghosts, spirits, angels, demons, fairies, residuals and elementals.
Ghosts are typically identified as Spirits that have not crossed over, whereas Spirits are often used to classify those who have crossed over into the ‘light’. There are some key differences between encountering a Ghost and a Spirit.
Usually, Spirits make you feel calm, comforted and reassured. They often appear in dreams or you may see them as an apparition, either way, the feeling surrounding a Spirit is often calm.
Ghosts on the other hand often leave you with an eerie feeling, and can at times make you uncomfortable. They can appear as an apparition, shadow, orbs or ectoplasm mist. They may also be attached to an object or living person.
