The Boundaries, which divide Life From Death
at best shadowy and vague. Who shall say
the one ends, and where the other begins?
– Edgar Allan Poe –
What are you're thoughts about ghosts?
The belief in ghosts is new. Throughout history people have had ghost encounters (read more below.)
As I continue my book tour with my latest book, How To Talk With Spirits:
Seances, Mediums, Ghost Hunts, I meet many who have paranormal experiences that share and ask why, how, and is it for real?
My tour continues into July where I will be part of a Ghost Play production, speaking to the audience after the event and answering questions. The interest in ghosts is not new as I wrote in my book,
QUESTIONS FROM THE CURIOUS LIVING
PEOPLE ARE CURIOUS about and perplexed by what happens after death, or if anything does happen at all. They wonder what the spirits of the dead might appear as, how they will manifest and what kind of messages will they give. They want to know why the spirits communicate, and if the spirits or ghosts should be feared.
"For centuries people from many different cultures, countries, and religions shared stories about ghosts and their sightings. The concept of ghosts, as hopeful evidence of life after death, goes all the way back to ancient Egypt. Then it was commonly believed death was merely a transition to some mysterious netherworld of existence. In the first century A.D. during the Roman Empire period, the great Roman author and statesman Pliny the Younger recorded one of the first notable ghost stories in letters. He reported the “specter” [ghost] of an old man with a long beard, rattling chains, haunted his house in Athens. There are many ghost stories about England’s Anne Boleyn, the second wife of King Henry VIII, haunting the Tower of London to sightings of Benjamin Franklin’s ghost seen near the library of the American Philosophical Society in Philadelphia."
I answer the question, what is the difference between ghosts and spirits - this is what I'll address at my talk (it's in my book too).
