In this 18-minute podcast, Fiona Broome talks about the four main reasons ghosts may seem drawn to some people and not others:
- Ghosts seem to manifest more often to people who will notice them rather than ignore them.
- If you don’t order ghosts to perform (“Knock once for yes”), some of them seem more interested in manifesting.
- Some people seem to be beacons and — sometimes just briefly — attract individual spirits.
- Sometimes it’s not the person, it’s the location that’s attracting spirits. (For example, if there are heavy quartz deposits under the house.)
Fiona also reminds listeners that ghosts have personalities. Some are nice, some are fearful, some are shy, and some are bullies. The latter should not be encouraged, as they can prey on vulnerable, frightened people.
Ghosts don’t kill people. The Bell Witch is the only significant story that suggested otherwise, but Fiona believes the Bell Witch “murder” — and many of the so-called hauntings — were actually committed by someone very human and alive.
Some ghosts seem to cause harm, but it’s usually either a playful spirit whose efforts went awry, or it’s a poltergeist.
If you want to attract spirits, pay more attention to them. Like people, they seem to respond better to those who treat them like everyday people, and respect them as equals.
However, be sure to establish your boundaries before you set out the welcome mat.
If you want ghosts to leave you alone, ignore them. If you are afraid of them, that can attract bully-type ghosts. Overcoming your fear is vital.
