Signs Being Visited By Spirit Or Ghost

Everyone finds the idea of being visited by a spirit terrifying. Are they trying to warn you or scare you? Here are 16 signs of ghosts in your house.

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.

15. Objects at your feet

Seeing coins, stones or feathers at your feet are often sent by a loved one or Spirit.

16. Animal Sensitivity

Your animal reacts to a particular area of your home or seems to react to something you cannot see. It is important to understand that typically, not all ‘bumps in the night’ are caused by an actual spirit or ghost. In fact, most of the time these types of noises can be attributed to residuals.

Residuals are basically an imprint of energy that seems to be caught on a continuous loop and is playing out over and over again. Residual energy is usually easily cleared with sage and other smudging rituals, incense, and crystals.

As for Ghosts and Spirits, intuitively we can often tell which one is paying us a visit by the way the experience makes us feel. Usually, ghosts are attached to a particular object or home, whereas Spirits will come and go when they have messages they need to deliver.

If you are experiencing paranormal activity in your home, take a moment to observe what type of energy you feel you are dealing with. If it is a Spirit or a loved one, stay open to their messages and if it’s a ghost, set a firm boundary to ensure you can live in your home comfortably.
