A ghost is the energy, soul, or personality of a person who has died and somehow has gotten stuck between here and the next world. Paranormal researchers believe these spirits do not know that they are dead. This article will discuss how to tell if you have a ghost. It will also tell you how to get rid of a ghost.
If you think that you may have a ghost in your house, there are a few things you can do to find out. First, rule out all the explainable phenomena. Take a close look at the evidence and ask yourself if the strange activity can be explained. You may want to have an outside party look at the evidence and try to explain it for you. Next, look for natural causes of any strange events. Try to stay level headed and calm, keep a rational but open mind when you are trying to determine if you do have a ghost.
Here are some signs that you may have a ghost or spirit in your home.

If you have a ghost that bothers your, frightens you or is physically abusive, this is how to get rid of it.
Step 1 – You must remain unemotional and firm when ridding your home of a ghost. Ghosts will feed off of your fear and become stronger. Remember that you have control over the spirit. Speak out loud, telling the ghost to leave and that it is not welcome in your home.
Step 2 – Tell the spirit it does not belong in your home. In a firm voice, tell the spirit to go where it belongs. Walk through your entire house saying this in every room. If you would like to ask your church for holy water you can also anoint each room as you say a prayer.
There are also other ways to rid your home of a spirit. My top choice and the one that seems to work the best is having a Reverend bless the house and do a cleansing. You may also try to get rid of the object that the spirit seems to be attached to. I spoke to one lady who said she had been haunted for years. It took her a very long time to realize the haunting centered around an old antique dresser she had acquired. When the spirit became violent with her and her children, she took the dresser outside and in a fit of rage, she busted it up into hundreds of little pieces. She then burned the dresser. She says that after that, she never felt another spirit in her home.
Some people believe you should gently speak to a spirit and guide them toward, the light. Then there are others that believe in smudging with sage. I have not had good experiences with these two ways of cleansing a home and would not recommend them to any one.
However you decide to rid your home of a ghost is a very personal decision. You have to look at what you believe is going on. Do you have a human who has past on or a demon that is tormenting you? You also have to look at you own religious beliefs. Whatever way you decide to use one thing is common in them all, you have to believe that you have power over the spirit and that you can make it leave.
