Do you think that a house that has had a history of a loving family in it can carry that loving spirit forward toward the next people to occupy it? We always hear about unhappy ghost in houses how about happy ones?

I am very much a 'believer'. I do think that restless spirits can attach themselves to people or houses for whatever reasons. We tend to hear about the bad ones because not only they make great scary movies but people notice their 'presence' due to nasty or annoying occurrences. I am not an expert in this area but I have had experiences in the past which lead me to believe that not all earth bound spirits are negative ones. A clairvoyant told me once that I had the spirit of a little girl attached to me because she liked me! I don't know for a fact if that is true but I have always preferred baby girls compared to boys and fortunately for me I had a daughter. I do think there may just be such a thing as a happy ghost!

It seems to me good energy can be present as well as bad. Bad just gets all the Press. thanks

Hey pat~ You know that is a very interesting thought. I have also never once heard anyone say that they have a happy ghost in their house! I wonder if that is at all possible! Is a ghost allowed to be happy? Or do they only haunt when they are miserable? Maybe they aren't allowed to come back if they are happy. Maybe only those that can't rest in peace are the ones to come back to haunt!

Well time is a human invention so once we have left our human form all the rules concerning time may not even exist. So any energy even if it was left from past experiences may be able to be in the present. Thanks

I don't actually believe in ghosts, but I do think that places have a different atmosphere about them. I think that strong emotions linger, and some people are sensitive to them - so if a loving family have lived somewhere a long time then I do think that they leave a good atmosphere behind them, and I think the same is true of nasty people, they leave a bad feeling behind.

This may very well be the explanation. Thanks

I certainly do believe in happy ghosts. There's always good and bad, and I really don't think it would be any different in the after-life. I'm sure it all depends on how one was treated, what kind of life they had, and most importantly what kind of person they were their whole time being. I know the ghost that haunted my apartment many years ago, was a prankster and just wanted certain things his way. After about the third time of my dishes being moved from cupboard to cupboard, I just let it be and had no problems except a friendly visit every now and then. I've been to places, that the minute you walk into a place, the hair on the back of your kneck stands right up and it does'nt feel very inviting. That's definitely not good, and I'm gone.

I have certainly been in places where I felt welcomed by the place and also in places that I didn't even want to be near. I never thought to attribute this to a ghost, rather I gave credit to happiness or unhappiness that occurred there.

I would also think that way, when I would go to a place. When my Aunt moved into her apartment in East Haddam, CT, I believe, I do know it was in the town next to where Brownell's used to be. Her thermostat would always get messed with. In the Winter, and after she would come home from work and turn the temp. up, start dinner and put the news on tv, she would realize it was getting cold in there. She would go check the thermostat and sometimes it would be completely turned down, other times it would be on a very low temperature. When it was warm weather, enough to have no heat running, it was like a suana in there. Her thermostat would be turned all the way up. It was just her living there, she was single at the time and a short walk to work. It was convenient for her, although she did'nt stay there quite a year. She didn't even like staying there alone, so sometimes my sisters and I would take turns staying with her, and none of us ever slept good at night at all and it wasn't just from the temperature. We were glad when she got a vehicle and moved. I think that's why I don't think that way for I had no feelings/signs/inclinations about that place when I would go there and no feelings for the place I lived in either.
