OOokay, so here’s the Biggie: Types of Hauntings and Types of Spirits.
At this point I feel it’s necessary to again stress the fact we DO NOT claim to be experts. In fact we respect and welcome the opinion of any other Paranormal Researchers in the field, however different from our own they may be. This is just a collection of OUR conclusions based on OUR experiences.
Haunting can fall into one (or sometimes two) of the following categories.
Residual: These hauntings are the stuff of legend. Ever hear a local story about a haunted railroad and a Ghost Lantern can be seen swinging? Or a haunted house where at night you can hear the scream of a lady as she plummets to her death? These are examples of a Residual Haunting. Negative energy is literally blasted into the atmosphere, causing it to imprint or record the events. Like a looped tape, it will play the events over and over again. The entities involved in this residual haunting activity are unaware of their surroundings. This is not an intelligent haunting, there is no interaction between you and the entity.
Intelligent: While we live, we have an energy aura that surrounds our living bodies. This aura is created by the millions of electrical currents that are created through our bodies. Our brains create brain waves, a form of pure energy that is transmitting our thoughts, what we see, what we feel, etc. When our mortal form dies, the aura that constantly surrounds our bodies, leaves us. Bodies lose 6 ounces on the instant of death. What is this 6 ounces? Perhaps it is energy leaving our body. Our soul. This energy, the aura, or you may even call it your soul, is carrying the information of what we used to be. If it can do this, then why couldn't it also carry our intelligence? If it can carry our former intelligence of our previous life, then it should be able to interact with us intelligently. When we see this aura, we call it a ghost. Spirits of an intelligent haunting can accurately answer questions and provide sentient communication.
Poltergesit Activity: Poltergeist activity is commonly believed to be caused by an adolescent teenager going through puberty stages. During this stage of development, a teenager can harbor an extreme amount of inner energy. This energy can be projected with the mind, which can cause tapping sounds, the movement of objects, lights flickering off and on. Poltergeist activity usually originates from a human being. This is a highly debated topic among Parapsychologist and there are many views as to what exactly causes poltergeist activity. EVP Mediums is not yet sure what exactly causes Poltergeist activity, but we do believe it revolves around a singular person.
Demonic Activity: Like other spirits, Demons or Malevolent Inhuman Spirits (MIS) are pure energy entities. The difference is, a demon has NEVER walked this earth in physical form, human or otherwise. As such, they are incapable of sympathy, empathy, love or any other positive energy. They are EXTREMELY dangerous. We can validate and attempt to move "Negative" or even lower level "Demonic" entities, but this is not our specialty. When confronted by Demons, we advise our clients to contact the proper professionals in the field who specialize in this type of entity. (Priests, shamans, etc.). While Gary is an ordained minister and apparently has certain authority over these entities, we do not believe ourselves qualified to handle such cases at this time.
Shadow People/Creature Activity: This is a type of haunting activity that has no real explanation. They are different from ghosts or demons. They are known to do things that are different from ghosts. They can move between walls, they have no human discernible features, except for a cloak and a hat or hood. People who encounter them describe a feeling of unnatural, consuming fear. A feeling of the purest, darkest evil. Much like a skunk emits an odor for protection, it appears that the Shadow man emits an energy force that causes absolute terror and often results in paralysis of the victim.
Shadow People have no discernible mouth, noses or facial expressions. Some are seen as child sized dark humanoids. Some people say they seem to be made up of dark smoke or steam. At times when they move, they appear to be moving on an invisible track from one place to another, such as a toy train on a track. They have been seen to hop or what appears to be a strange dance. Two common types of Shadow People are the ''Hat Man", that looks like it is wearing a 1930s fedora hat and the 'Hooded Figure'', which looks like the shadow person is wearing a hooded cloak. Many witnesses of the hooded figure have observed glowing red or yellow eyes. For some unknown reason, Shadow people appear to be attracted to people who are psychically gifted, such as clairvoyants and psychics. Why they target these individuals or what they want from them is unknown.
While we have taken the time to outline the five types of Hauntings, there are only two that we most commonly see: Residual and Intelligent Hauntings. Both of these are defined by the type of spirit involved: Human. Humans themselves can fall into two types of spirits: Earth-Bound and Crossed-Over.
Earth-Bound: Earth-Bound Spirits are human beings who at the moment of death did not (for what ever reason) go into the Light. Now we know there are some researchers in the field who do not believe in "The Light," but our EVP evidence suggests otherwise. Earthbound spirits retain the same personality as they did when they were in physical form. In other words, if a crotchety old man died and did not go into the light, his earthbound spirit will remain "Old and crotchety". He will dislike anyone living in "his" house and will attempt to communicate that dislike through noises or what ever means he is capable of expressing that dislike. Generally most "Ghosts" don't have the ability to move objects or close doors or cause a severe haunting. It takes a tremendous amount of energy to accomplish these feats. Earth bound spirits (For the most part) do not posses the ability to "read minds" or know your thoughts. However, there are always rare exceptions to that rule and perhaps a few have been able to master that ability. This is what we call an "advanced" earth bounds. (Extremely rare). We have not come across such an advanced earthbound thus far in our investigations, but there is always a possibility for a "First".
Crossed-Over: Upon death, if a soul has entered the Light we believe they have rejoined the "God source", Heaven or God's divine energy. That soul becomes part of everything and is capable of incredible knowledge. Those that have crossed over have the ability to read our thoughts. We have conducted EVP sessions without saying a word. Merely thinking our question to these spirits and have gotten a correct and loving response. (We have found there seems to be "rules" on what they are permitted to tell us however. A topic we will discuss at a later date.) Those that have crossed over are not capable of negative or damning thoughts. Only pure love radiates from these spirits. Likewise, we have conducted "Mental questioning" tests when conducting EVP sessions with earth bounds and they remained clueless to our questioning. It is on that basis, be believe Earth-Bounds are not capable of telepathy.
So there you have it. The defining characteristics of hauntings and spirits in a nutshell. We may end up adding more classifications to this list; we may also likewise remove a few as we progress on our quest for knowledge.
