Ghouls, ghosts, entities, things that go bump in the night!
Put very plainly, ghost visitors and spirits are souls that did not pass into the light/next dimension when their physical bodies died here on Earth.
Either they didn't pass over due to:
Entities can also be seen when they are in the form of residual energy.
That is, a certain spot or location holds the energy of past inhabitants and events, and anyone there at the right time and place can see a replay of certain events.
There are a whole host of other (non-worldly) entities and energies out there. I have met a few with clearing jobs that I have had. Some are good natured and some definitely are not!
There can be poltergeists, earth spirits and energies which just exist and are not from a person who once lived on earth.
Poltergeists would probably be the one of the most publicised type of energy and the most misunderstood. Generally, poltergeists are not connected with the spirit of someone who has passed on.
They are not ghosts. Poltergeist activity is generally associated with children, adolescents and/or people with emotional problems.
Though not completely understood, it is believed that a form of mind over matter energy is expended from the living person, creating a whole range of activity from loud noises, furniture moving, objects levitating and foul odours.
Earth spirits would include all types of animal energies, elementals and fairies, divas, goblins and land spirits. They can occasionally attach themselves to a person or place and can have a very mischievious energy. I have personal experience of an animal energy which was quite frightening and not at all playful, so they must be treated with care at all times.
I occasionally run across energies that are causing problems for a person or in their home which just can't be classified.
I see them as different forms of energy; dense, light, sparkling, heavy etc… and I would know immediately they are not human.
Possibly they come from another dimension or world. Shadow People would fall into this category for me, as I'm not sure that they were once in human form.
Usually these types of energy are no trouble to move on, and rarely cause harm.

Ok, if you answered yes to more than 3 of these questions, you might have an unwanted guest!
Having paranormal activity in your home, whether you realize it is happening or not, is a tremendous drain on your health and energy.
If you suspect you might have an unwelcome spirit guest, you can try asking it to leave yourself.
After doing a prayer or asking your guardian angel for protection – whatever feels right to you – simply ask the spirit or spirits to leave.
It really can be this simple.
