Is This a Ghost or an Angel?

Does anyone know how I can find out if I have a ghost with me or an Angel? I know something is with me and I thought it was a ghost because my neighbor told me that the original owner of our house always slept with all the lights on in the house because she believed the ghost of her late husband was haunting the house. But I don’t feel any negative energy from it at all, it is almost comforting and soothing.

I feel something laydown at my feet as I good to bed at night and in the morning it up gets up when I wake up, I can literally feel something that feels like a little dog getting up and walking on the bed and moving around my legs and at the same time the blankets move with no one else in the bed, I sometimes feel the movement of the bedding brush against my arm too. I am 100% sure and have been 100% sure for a year now that something is with me.

I house sat for my daughter last week and wondered if it would come with me or stay at my house. I didn’t notice anything when I went to bed that night but the next morning it was on the pillow next to my pillow. I had a bigger bed all to myself to I guess I had room enough that it didn’t have to squeeze next to my feet. I had my arm stretched across the other pillow and I felt that the ghost/angel was on the pillow, it moved around a lot getting up, it was unmistakable.

That night I was reading in bed on my nook reader and it was getting pretty late and the pages started turning on their own very fast making it impossible to read. First I said, will you stop that please, when it continued I just said OK I’ll go to sleep now. (The nook reader did that same think about a month ago on the same day that my TV froze on a channel when I was trying to change the cannel. It was the first time either one of those things happened and both happened within a one hour period.)

As it turned out, the night I was at my daughters house I woke up in the morning just in time to pack up and get to the airport to pick up my daughter and son in law. Had the entity not kept me from reading I probably would have overslept, so it actually did me a favor. So between that and not feeling afraid of it, I wonder if it’s an angel.

One other thing a few months ago I was waking up and felt the movement in the bed and when I sat up in bed I felt a sharp pain on my back, I looked in the mirror and there was a dark well defined very new bruise bruise on my back. It only happened one time and I feel like maybe it was an accident. I somehow sensed that it had not intended to hurt me, and it has never happened again.

I know this sounds crazy. I promise you I have no mental problems, I just would like to know what is with me.

  1. Hello Nanc,

    You don’t sound crazy, weird things happen. You might actually have a number of entities hanging around, and I will tell you that angels don’t get into bed, bruise people, walk up their legs .. or sleep on your feet. You might have a dog in spirit with you, have you had one pass over recently. One of my cats curled up behind my knees the night after he died, for my comfort, because I was very sad.

    Do this .. on this page, up on the right over Newest Questions is a link to the Michael Invocation. Follow the link, read the page a few times to get an understanding of what you are asking, then say it out loud. If something around you is a ghost who needs to cross over into heaven, it will go. If its one of your pets, they don’t generally become lost souls, so it might still be around afterwards. Nothing that offers you any harm will remain. Then you won’t have to wonder if its a ghost or an angel.

    Our guardian angels stand behind our right shoulder, members of the group governed by Archangel Michael. They watch over us, protect us when we allow it, and try to lead us gently through life. We have other angels too, Gabriel – who inspire creativity, Raphael – the healers and Uriel – our spiritual teachers, are the ones who work with humanity the most. When you have contact with them you will have no doubt they are angels.

  2. Nanc,
    Ghost or an angel? Neither. It’s demonic. Demons will pretend to be someone (a deceased loved one)or something (such as a pet) in order to get attention and ultimately, your trust.

    Demons are not lost souls, wanting you to show them the light. Why would the dead seek answers from the living? The Bible says the dead have nothing in common with the living, neither the living with the dead.

    Demons often disguise themselves as “friendly ghosts”, playing little games, even speaking to you in “whispers”. Don’t be deceived, a demon’s ultimate agenda is to destroy you, plain and simple.

    Since you’re dealing with spiritual warfare, you should seek a holy spirit filled church and seek assistance from a pastor who believes in demons. It amazes me to find the majority of churches don’t have an understanding of spiritual matters, but you must persevere.

    Start by picking up your Bible and start making it part of your daily “things to do” list. It’s a heck of a right start to ridding yourself of these demons. Want to know more? Ask away.

    • Not everything is demons, Jeff, and I doubt you have ever met either an angel or a demon, or a ghost, you would definitely know the difference if you had.

      What section of the bible do you want Nanc to read? Which bit is going to actually answer her question? Where does it say, in the bible, that a demon is going to lay at her feet? I know any number of people who have experiences with the spirits of animals visiting them .. because they love them. I have 4 cats in spirit who have done that for me (and other people have seen one of my cat’s too) – and believe me, I can tell the difference between a ghost, a spirit, a demon and angels .. I can talk to all of them.

      • I had the ghost of a little white cat in one of my apartments!! My daughter actually saw it first and she was not even two at the time. She would just say to me, “Mama, kitty’s walking! Kitty’s walking!” I would look and see nothing, until one night, I was up very late and I caught, out of the corner of my eye, the rear end of a white cat passing through the threshold of my doorway. I was blown away!!! I thought it was all my daughter’s imagination! So yes, animals do visit us in spirit as well! (although, that cat was not one I recognized as one of mine; maybe it was looking for its previous owner?)

        • Hey Luna,

          Maybe it just liked your house? Or it lived there before? Lucy was very attached to me, and I to her, and she did follow me from home to the first healing centre, and then to the second. It used to amaze people to see a cat in a healing centre, and then stop them dead when I told them she was a ghost. I even let them check all the rooms when they didn’t believe me. :-) There were very few hiding places. LOL

  3. Is there such a thing as ghosts? The answer to this question depends on what precisely is meant by the term “ghosts.” If the term means “spirit beings,” the answer is “yes.”

    If the term means “spirits of people who have died,” the answer is “no.” The Bible makes it abundantly clear that there are spirit beings, both good and evil. But the Bible negates the idea that the spirits of deceased human beings can remain on earth and “haunt” the living.

    Hebrews 9:27 declares, “Man is destined to die once, and after that to face judgment.” That is what happens to a person’s soul-spirit after death, they’re judged. The result of this judgment is heaven for the believer (2 Corinthians 5:6-8; Philippians 1:23) and hell for the unbeliever (Matthew 25:46; Luke 16:22-24). There is no in-between. There is no possibility of remaining on earth in spirit form as a “ghost.”

    Also, in Isaiah 26:14 “They are now dead, they live no more; those departed spirits do not rise.”

    Only human beings have the ability to have a spiritual relationship with God. Animals don’t have a soul or a spirit. I know for a fact, my cat doesn’t possess the ability to worship God, or hear God, or relate to God. As much as you loved your cat, when it died it stayed dead and nothing else.

    But let’s continue…

    The Bible teaches very clearly that there are spirit beings who can connect with and appear in our physical world. The Bible identifies these beings as angels and demons. Angels are spirit beings who are faithful in serving God. Angels are righteous, good, and holy. Demons are fallen angels, angels who rebelled against God. Demons are evil, deceptive, and destructive. According to 2 Corinthians 11:14-15, demons masquerade as “angels of light” and as “servants of righteousness.”

    Appearing as a “ghost” and impersonating a deceased human being, or your dead cat “Fluffy”, definitely seem to be within the power and abilities that demons possess.

    It is crucial to remember that the goal of demons is to deceive. We should abstain from communicating with spirits. Leviticus 19:31 “Do not turn to mediums or seek out spiritists, for you will be defiled by them. I am the LORD your God.”

    As I said in my previous post, seek out a Holy Spirit filled church and turn to your Bible for advise. All your answers lie within It’s pages.

    • Thank you Jeff, its good to have the fundamentalist approach to belief here in paranormal pages. I have one question though .. if there are no spirits of people who have died, what was Samuel? Did the Witch of Endor call up a demon who then spoke God’s words to Saul, even thought the Bible says he was a Spirit itself, and not a demon? Spirits exist, and ghosts exist .. otherwise I wouldn’t do the work I do, nor would millions of other people be capable of being mediums.

      I agree that people shouldn’t spend all their time trying to talk to dead people, spirits or ghosts, because it takes them away from their real lives, and can become an obsession. Spirits offer us no harm, but the dead are hungry and should be treated with great caution.

    • Well Jeff, how does one distinguish between an ‘angel of light’ and a demon masquerading as one. Please don’t tell me to ask such an apparition who or what it is or who sent it. Does it matter if one isn’t harmed by the being of light. As far as I’m concerned, if one makes itself visible to you, it is a clear indication that there is indeed a realm/world where they reside and in my humble opinion – one who sees a being of light is very privileged.

  4. it could be anything that has died or passed away in that house it could be a dog who knows but I think it was maybe a demon just dont keep waiting find out

  5. Ama,

    You stated in your post, “Spirits offer us no harm, but the dead are hungry and should be treated with great caution.”

    Your statement alone is a warning to people. The best way to treat the “dead” is DON’T.

    As for “spirits offer us no harm”. Try turning on one of those “friendly” spirits and see what happens. It’s not good, I know. You want to see what “Casper” is capable of, tell it to get out, stop talking to you, quit curling up beside your feet. Kitty might just show his fangs.

    1 Peter 5:8 states: Stay alert! Watch out for your great enemy, the devil. He prowls around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour.

    As for my final post on this matter, Google the book, “Enticed by the Light” by Sharon Beekmann. She was a student of New Age and began to speak with “spirit guides” and consult with mediums.

    Didn’t turn out so pretty for her and it took 10 long years to break the bondage. People, do you really want to go down Sharon’s path? Don’t believe me, check out her book, the real testimony exposing fallen angels for what they really are, evil.

    Thanks for all the comments. It’s been illuminating.


    • Hi Jeff

      Spirits can also be Holy = Holy Spirit / guardian angel / guide / angel of God. All these represent Gods Light.

      Would you deny the Holy Spirit its communication with you, through fear alone? It might just have something important to convey to you, from God.

      We are advised to test every spirit in the Bible because yes, the unholy can also come through pretending to be Holy:

      1 John: 1-4 “Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God”

      we are not told not to speak to any spirit. If folk refused talk to spirit, Gabriel would not have been able to convey Gods message about John the Baptist, or Jesus. Nor convey the Commandments to the children of Israel. Nor would Isaac (or Ishmael, depends what version you read) have been saved, rather he would have been sacrificed. And so on, and so forth.

      I agree tread cautiously, but do not turn your back on one of God’s messengers through fear.


      • Hi Jeff,

        Have you had any experiences of your own, or are you basing your belief system only on books? And how many of them have you read? How long have you been working in the spiritual warfare industry? I am coming up on 33 years now, from when I first made my commitment to Jesus, who came to me in a vision, to walk where he led me? There’s so much garbage out in ‘bookland’ theses days, I just shake my head – and I love books. I have 1000′s. I am not making a comment about Stacie’s book in saying that. She had her experience and I am very sorry she was hurt.

        You didn’t actually answer my question. Who was Samuel if all spirits are demons? It’s in your own bible (which is also mine) that all spirits are not demons. And Stacie’s experience is unusual. I know she wrote the book, but I know plenty of nastier stories than hers, that happened to Christian people. Christians have far more problems with demons than most new agers – and I know this because I used to work in their industry for many years. One example like Stacie’s does not make everything out in “Spirit” .. or the “spiritual planes” .. or “where God lives” .. something nasty.

        I agree with you that people should be cautious around ghosts. You don’t seem to separate ghosts from spirits from demons .. so let me.

        GHOST – person who died and did NOT go into heaven. Did NOT reconnect to God. Did not find peace and healing. Still has the same beliefs, fears and attitudes as they did when they had a body. Still capable of acting in much the same nasty way .. and the longer they have been dead the angrier they CAN (they don’t always do this) become. They feed from human negative energy .. like fear .. so if you are taught to ‘fear’ everything in the spiritual planes .. they hang around you more. Hence Christians having problems with ghosts and demons. New agers are generally focused on Love.

        DEMONS .. the stronger, really nasty ones, are fallen angels. The Bible calls one Lucifer, which is not true because Lucifer was a Bishop, not the devil. People very seldom meet this nasty an entity, the fallen make their own ‘demons’ which harass the living. They are bad enough. And people create them too, so perhaps we had better start watching our own thoughts?

        SPIRIT .. here’s where it gets complicated .. and why .. because this is an umbrella word .. it covers a lot of different beings.

        1) Spirits .. are people who have died and gone back to God .. back to heaven. They reconnect to our ‘Source’ (God), let go of their emotional pain and fears and are healed, and can come back and visit us anytime they want to, which is seldom because they know its important they do not interfere with our free will.

        2) SPIRIT .. Jeff, you know that as the HOLY SPIRIT, but the new agers, or whomever, decided that ‘holy’ was too churchy .. given the church’s persecution of anyone that didn’t agree with them, so GOD became SPIRIT. It’s still GOD. Within that SPIRIT of GOD energy we have angels. They are also in the bible. They are the messangers, as AJ says in her answer to you. They are our friends, our helpers and our protectors, among other good and loving activities. They too are bound by the rules of free will – they cannot interefere in our lives unless we give them permission, so you don’t need to worry about them .. but they still worry about you.

        I ‘turn’ to my friendly spirit beings (angels) regularly. They are the ones, most particularly the Michael and the Gabriel, who help me help people get rid of nasty entities. I don’t turn expecting to find demons. There’s that old saying ‘be careful what you wish for, you might get it’. Focus on fear long enough and what you fear might well focus on you.

        BTW, I loved the first Caspar movie. It’s taken from a cartoon, but it was fun. I was just thinking about it the other day. Caspar might have been a ghost, but he was still capable of love. I would have sent him into healing myself, but at least he wasn’t doing any harm, and he’d been dead a long time. And none of my ghost cats ever turned on me. I saw Meg in my dream last night, whether she was ‘visiting’ or I just dreamed of her, she seemed very real for a moment,a nd I don’t dream much. :-) She’s buried under the apricot tree here in the orchard.

        So Jeff, you want to live in fear, I can’t stop you, it’s what the churches teach .. fear the dark and fear God, that one I don’t understand, but humans have to have things to fear so that the people in power can control them more easily. God loves us all .. everyone, not just those who call themselves Christians. Afterall, ‘He’ created everything in the first place, didn’t he?

        Love & Peace

        • I think I found a little 101 teaching right there Ama.. lol.. thanks :)

          • You are welcome, Fawnna. Best to ask me questions, if there’s something you want to know. If its not about the topic of this page, start a new question. CT is happy for us to do so.

  6. Anything which brings fear to you is never of God.

    • I agree Randy, pity so many people are terrified of God.
