The Startling World of Ghosts

Many of the books on ghosts these days come from one of two perspectives. First, there is that of the ghost hunter. These books tend to be very precise and logical. The other type consists of books by psychics and their perspective. These tend to be very emotional and focused on feelings rather than anything scientific. In either case, it's as if you're only getting half of the story. You'll only find the truth when both sides come together. That's what you'll find in the book Ghost Worlds, by psychic Melba Goodwyn.

Ghost Worlds is the ideal book for the new ghost hunter or anyone interested in the spirit world. It's fun, easy-to-read, and features the most complete explanations of ghosts available today. It begins by telling you the best places to find ghosts. Sure, if you know a house is haunted, then that is a great place to start. And most people would think that places such as cemeteries and accident and crime scenes would be a good place to contact the dead. But did you know that caves, abandoned prisons, and large community buildings are also great places to go ghost hunting? You'll discover other unusual areas to seek ghosts, too.

Next, you'll learn about the different types of ghosts you may encounter, from traditional ghosts and residual ghosts, to shadow ghosts and imaginary playmates. You'll also discover the difference between these ghosts and poltergeists, and learn about orbs and ecto-mists and the mysterious ghostly conveyance known as a vortex.

The Energy Key
Since Goodwyn is a psychic, it was inevitable that she would discuss different types of energy so you could become aware of them and how they apply to ghost hunting. She reveals signs of an influx of new energy indicating paranormal activity, such as a ringing in the ears, a humming sound, or a feeling of static electricity. She also describes samples of discordant energy and harmonious energy that can be detected by people with psychic abilities, indicating ghosts are near. Small objects appearing out of nowhere are also described.

A Ghost Hunter's Tool Kit
What really sets this book apart is its complete listing of tools you can use as a ghost hunter. More importantly, she shares their methods of use:

Work with crystals to deflect negative energy
The practical uses of different types of cameras
Using thermometers to detect "cold spots"
How a compass can detect paranormal activity
Using motion detectors

Several other tools are described, some more complex and some as simple as a set of chimes.

But hunting ghosts may not be enough. Such searches can be long, tedious, and downright boring. Here, Goodwyn reveals both how to entice ghosts to come out and methods to communicate with them.

Ghost hunting can be fun or spooky, weird, and even breathtaking. Communicating with the spirit world can change lives, letting you know that your spirit continues after death and helping to bring peace to both the living and the dead. Ghost Worlds is the ultimate guide for new ghost hunters and all people interested in what happens beyond the grave. Also included is a complete ghost and spirit glossary with clear definitions so that you can communicate easily with other ghost hunters.

Ghost Worlds tells you everything you need to know, from both a scientific and spiritual view. If you are thinking of going ghost hunting, this is the book you must get even before you begin.

Sitting here in the dark, watching the moon shine over the autumn landscape (my favorite time of year) I find myself reflecting on the question that is most frequently asked of me: "How do I know if my house is haunted?" The question seems so simple, so endearing and direct, but it is as complex as the human mind or the spiritual realm and it... read this article
