Ghosts & Spirits
What is the Difference Between Ghosts and Spirits?
We have contemplated much about ghosts, spirits and how they
could come to be and the possible differences between them. What
are ghosts and spirits? Are they the same? Our first inclination is
that everything is spirit; so to say both terms, ghosts and spirits, in
the same sentence, sounds sort of contradictory. However, we
think to differentiate between them for understanding of what is
encountered in the paranormal, as well as human “condition,” is
What is the Difference Between the Soul and Spirit?
Many witnesses of a death-bed, have reported the dying person seeing deceased loved ones waiting for them,
before the person crosses over from earth to the next plane. When one passes (the physical body dies), it is well
known that they are usually greeted by someone that is known to them or someone who is kind who assist them
in the crossing-over experience. It is believed that their presence, wisdom and love helps to calm the dying
person while relieving some fear of what lies in store on the next plane. Most near death experiences share this
common thread as well as a reportedly overwhelming presence of light and peace. A tunnel of light, or at least
some form of light, is typically experienced either before or after these spirit guides are met. After a “reunion”
with known people who have died and gone before them, a review of the newly departed's life occurs; this is
then followed by the person gravitating to the level (a plane of either light or darkness) that matches the
maturity or condition of their soul. We use the term, “soul,” because we feel the soul to be the individual - their
unique personality, what makes a person who they are. As all of us are (and everything is) comprised of spirit,
(all existing within one great spirit and spirit existing within all - a part of the whole of spirit, that some might
call god), the soul is a label sometimes used todefine an individual spirit within the one, whole spirit. One might
equate the word soul as being either the spirit, the person or the mind within the one, greater spirit's person or
mind that is also spirit. There really is no difference between a soul and spirit as it is just “word play” for better
understanding of the individual within the infinite spirit. Envision yourself as thoughts, memory and emotions
moving within the one great mind of spirit, or energy or god (if you are religious). In that light, all individuals
could be summed up as being thoughts, ideas, feelings and memories within the whole of divine energy.
The Spirit World: The Planes of Hells & Heavens
The realm of spirit, or “spirit world,” consists of many planes of
existence, that which we shall try to describe based upon what
we think is most plausible. There could be multiple levels of
darkness. Some would call these, “hells.” They are temporary
places that mirror the condition of a soul lost within the mind
absorbed in self-condemnation in all forms. These hellish planes
would be where "ghosts" dwell. The earth plane would run
parallel to these lowest levels, allowing for (lower level) ghosts to
be known in our world, from time to time. In contrast, we envision
there are most likely infinite levels of heavens or planes of light
that are also equal to the condition of one’s understanding. The
heavens would hold those of a higher place of knowing.
We might call these planes of enlightenment or elevated being. Therefore, the plan for all humanity will be to
continue the ascent, ever growing; while descending would only occur if it were necessary to assist others in
ascending out of darkness, their own personal hell, to join others in higher understanding (peace). One day, it
is likely that we will comprehend that everything is connected and in unity - joined, and a greater peace, love,
joy and truth will be understood. All of these spirits of light will most likely share in the task of bringing the
whole of creation into the light of this peace, joy, love and truth. These are spirits.
We use the word “spirits” to indicate those who exist in, and visit from, the other side of “light.” Spirits could
be loved ones such as family members, friends, unknown people, spirit guides, angels, etc., that come to visit
people on this side of the grave for a purpose. What purpose might they have? I have come to believe that all
of us are surrounded by spirits who speak to us messages of guidance, encouragement and love. Also, spirits
may come to observe, watch over, and share experiences with us on this earthly plane. These individuals, or
spirits, come from a higher place of understanding, thus living in light which is truth. This enlightenment is
present in their countenance and presence. An enlightened spirit will be light and always bring a presence of
peace and joy. If a message is delivered, then it is received from an angel. “Angel” means “messenger,” thus
anyone that brings a message may be considered a messenger.
In contrast, ghosts are individuals who have not undergone the tunnel of light experience or life review. Their
condition is one of darkness or lack of understanding, as they struggle with the present, past or future fears.
Yet, other ghosts have been witnessed to be non-interactive with the physical world. Could this
“residual-haunting” be recordings of prior events on the environment somehow, or could they just be
disembodied people who are in the lowest depths of hell, completely lost in their mind through tragic events of
the past? Could some ghosts even be unaware that their physical body has passed? Most ghosts have
attachments to this world, such as emotional trauma, unfinished business, and fears that have held them to an
existence among the physical world. This self-created prison, no matter what the reason, must be undone in
them. If possible, those of us who are embodied need to speak peace and blessing to ghosts, should we
encounter them. We can ask their loved ones to assist them as we speak words of comfort to them. Many
ghosts seek only acknowledgement of their existence. They need to know that turning toward the light (and
loved ones) will bring peace, love and joy to them…that there is no eternal damnation and that facing the
future is a positive thing. Hell, or darkness, can only be a place to work through lack of understanding, traumas,
negative emotions and other mis-thinkings contrary to truth. Truth is light, and light removes darkness.
Certainly, loved ones on the other side will assist ghosts in getting free from such ignorance and help them in
ascending toward freedom. Does love know any boundary? Can love overcome all obstacles in life? Surely it
can, and surely would those who are enlightened assist those who are lost and suffering, due to a lack of love
Knowing a ghost is one that has not gone to the light and progressed through the life review, could it be that
ghosts are the shadow people (dark shadows) we have photographed? Could darkness, represented in shadow
ghosts, indicate the inner condition of an individual, such as hatred, anger, lack of knowledge, being lost, void
of truth, etc? I must state that just because a shadow ghost is dark and lacking light does not mean it is bad or
evil; and ghosts that are behaving badly are still only people who are hurting and have lost their way in life.
They have sought hiding in darkness, and fear coming forth to the light, which will expose their deeds. Light
always indicates enlightenment, wisdom, knowledge – truth. Therefore, could light anomalies that many have
captured in photographs, such as orbs, energy, ectoplasm mists, etc, also be indicative of the condition of
spirits that have come to us from the light? Have they come to our plane to observe, bring a message, guide, or
