what are spirits/ghost
Post # 1

Well in my opinions i think ghosts are people that have died on earth and stay on earth as a ghost because they have unfinished buissness or they are just scared to cross over because they dont know what will happen.

my opinion of spirits, well i believe that spirits was never a human being etc... i believe they have never actully lived on earth please give me your opinions id love to know?

ghosts and spirits are the same thing really. myself, i was taught that a ghost is attached to a house or object, a poltergeist is attached to a person, and a spirit is free to wander wherever, but they're really all just spirits. orbs i've usually found are weak spirits, normally animals. i've never seen a ghostly animal, but i've dealt with them. my first dog and first cat for years after they died would sneak into my room and curl up at the foot of my bed. my cat more than my dog though. [he always had trouble coming up stairs, guess even in death he couldn't do it] i would hear a purring noise, and would feel/hear something jump onto my bed and walk over to this one spot [where my cat always slept] and curl up. i'd try moving my legs, and it would feel as though something was in the way. in the morning, there was an indent that looked like something slept there.

your theory that spirits were always spirits is a neat concept. myself, i was told some demons are spirit energies who have never been human. true or not, i'm not sure, never come across a demon.

spirits get stuck on earth for a couple reasons, one [like you said] they're scared to cross over. two [again, like you said] they have unfinished business. third, which is what i've found from talking with a couple spirits, they like it here and just don't feel like crossing over. one spirit i met has been dead for 100 years [more now] she enjoyed watching over people in the house, so she didn't feel like crossing over. another was a great cousin of mine who died before i was born. she loved her home [which is a bed and breakfast she opened with her siblings. still run by our family] she just wanted to stay and see everyone. [because the family would visit every sunday] went back there two summers ago, she's still sitting in her rocking chair in the living room by the window. still doesn't want to leave. the third is Rori, he can't remember being human, he just loves being a spirit. i've asked about crossing over, he wants nothing to do with it.

personally, you just treat spirits like anyone else, they're not so bad. there was a line i heard once that i adore 'I love living in a haunted house, it's like having roommates, only they don't eat my food.'

one thing you can do is check the exact meaning of each word...according to merriam webster:

Ghost: a disembodied soul; especially : the soul of a dead person believed to be an inhabitant of the unseen world or to appear to the living in bodily likeness

Spirit: : a supernatural being or essence:
an often malevolent being that is bodiless but can become visible; a malevolent being that enters and possesses a human being

By these definitions it would seem that the two words have different meanings. A "ghost" would be a type of "spirit" This is not a belief or open to subjective reasoning, this would be the actual definition of the words.
