This comment was written in regards to a story here ( Haunted House for Sale) and the question is about residual hauntings. Most of us have heard about residual hauntings and we assume them to be some manner of “recording” of some psychic/emotional energy. A residual haunting is contrasted by an “intelligent” haunting in which the spirit or entity is known to react with the living and/or physical objects. When it comes to such things as ghosts and spirits it can be quite difficult to categorize and label. What do you think? Is a residual haunting nothing more than a paranormal recording?
I think this comment by “Big Chief” will lead to a very interesting discussion:
You know I�ve heard about this realm before where people do relive their lives on earth over and over again until they get over their problems on earth. I�ve heard some physics say this about people who commit suicide. I also saw this same thing with a girl who was talking to a �demon� through the Ouija where the �demon� told her that everything you do is being recorded and can also be �relived�.. I once talked to a person who did some Ouija sessions and he said that he contacted his father who committed suicide when he was younger.
He didn�t know his father much as his father died when he was a kid. I asked him where did his father say he was (earth, heaven..etc..) and he said his father said �he is still facing the same problems that he was facing on earth�. He said his father, through the board, told him that where ever he was he was reliving his problems over and over again. The problems he faced on earth that lead him to commit suicide, he is still facing those same problems upon death in the spirit world. I don�t know for sure if the person was telling me the truth but I�ve heard about this �realm� from several people.
I believe that realm is related to the same thing that people call �residual hauntings�. Just like old battle fields are haunted with noises of gunshots and bombs and some houses are haunted with the violence or activities that occurred there. I believe those people are �stuck� in a realm where they are reliving their problems/trauma on earth over and over again until they get over their problems or trauma. Its just a theory of mines. I believe earth is shared by many peoples and invisible realms. Those old battlefield noises or old music playing in these houses or battlefields are people caught in this realm that are reliving their lives over and over again until they get over their problems.
I�ve seen just about all these activities react to the physical living people around them. They make noise when people are around and disappear as people get closer or they shift noise to different places to avoid people. They show an awareness of the physical living people around them that shows me that it�s not just physic residual energy.
