Spirits and Ghosts
Spirits and ghosts, you might think they are the same thing, but there are actually subtle differences between the two. For one, ghosts are tied to the earthly plane for some reason. Perhaps they are confused and don’t know how to cross over, or they might have business they need to finish up here. Spirits have “crossed over” and they are not bound to the earth.

Ghosts are usually tied to a certain physical location. It’s not that they can’t go anywhere else, but they prefer to hang around where they feel more familiar or comfortable. Sometimes they are not ready to move on, and they stay at their home often haunting the new residents. Sometimes ghosts can’t “cross over” due to the energy of the people mourning for them, this energy ties them to the earth and they can’t go on until you “let them go”. Sometimes they stay because out of concern for a loved one.

Spirits, on the other hand, have crossed over. They know they are “dead” and are able to move between the afterlife and the physical world. They often come back to help us or comfort us. Spirits can be seen as guides or angels and are usually a good thing. After all, who wouldn’t want a spirit around to guide us through life?

Where spirits are helpful, ghosts are usually not. They are thought to be stuck between this world and the next so they might be a bit cranky. They are usually tied to a person, place or thing that they had unresolved issues with or that they were really attached to. Sometimes, they don’t even know they are dead! Many people think that ghosts are leftover energy that continually replays a point in time.

Spirits aren’t stuck and so they can come and go as they please. They might come to help you out or to go to a family gathering. Maybe they want to take a trip to their old family home or visit a relative. You can even have spirit guides around you that aren’t connected with your current life but are experienced guides from ancient times. Often times they are right here with you and you don’t know it. Sometimes it takes a psychic medium to be able to help you communicate with a spirit of a loved one.
