A Ghostly Perspective

This next post was inspired by a film that I’ve recently watched titled, The Haunting in Connecticut 2: Ghosts of Georgia. The film is based on a true story and here is its description: “A historic Southern home’s new residents come face to face with a malevolent force.”

While watching, that was when it dawned on me that I was already familiar with the people portrayed in the film. I had seen them on other paranormal shows talking about their story and discussing the daughter’s ability of clairvoyance and communicating with the dead.

After I finished watching the film, it got me to thinking about ghosts and why some of them seem to be so malevolent. Perhaps their spirit isn’t actually malevolent at all. Maybe they just seem that way because they are trying to convey a message to the living. And after countless failed attempts of communication with the living, the ghosts become enraged because they have something to say but have no way of reaching the other side.

I know it may sound crazy, even far-fetched, but it made me think. So, by the time these ghosts finally find someone with whom they are able to communicate, they’re ready to unleash all their built-up emotions. And with the rush of feeling (and the fact that they’re dead) it’s easy to understand why the living can get so terrified by a paranormal encounter.

It makes total sense to me. Put yourself in their position. One day you’re walking down the street and all is well, then unfortunately something tragically out of the blue happens and you’re no longer part of the living. You’re now on the other side. You’re terrified, freaking out and you have no one to turn to. You try so hard to communicate with the living, but nothing – nadda. You try and try until one day your persistence finally becomes successful when you’re able to communicate with someone. But by this time, when you’re able to speak to a clairvoyant or whomever, you’ve got all this rush of excitement and that’s what scares the living because it becomes too overwhelming for them to handle.

Now this isn’t me in any way, shape or form, discarding all malevolent entities as non-malevolent. Extreme caution should always be utilized when investigating the paranormal because there are evil creatures/beings on the other side. So, be careful!

But the film did make me think and I wanted to share……

  1. Doesn’t it come to ours and their perspective? Energy. Energy is either full or depleted, and if you are trapped then that energy reserve is something I cannot comprehend. Who can :D? Fantastic S.R.

  2. That theory makes a lot of sense and I have often thought the same thing myself! Of course, as you said there are bad things out there too.. A balance of good and evil. I think people can make things worse concerning the paranormal because they are scared out of their minds and don’t understand. Great post!

      • And against my normal discourse in online saying “anything” :D, angelicdarkness makes a great point. However I think, in a subconscious level these physical minds choose how they think as prescribed by the medium they are provided. As an army officer going on my 20th yr of service, let’s turn the tide.

  3. I tend to agree with your most interesting observation. As an investigator, I’ve come across very few “malevolent” ghosts, Most out there are just anxiously evolved people who want to be heard and not forgotten. One thing we do in our investigations is to always call out the names of the dead who might be associated with a site, and we feel its facilitated their appearance in one form or another. Otherwise, I might guess that the frequency of bad ghosts is about the same as that of living people. Some are mean and die that way; most aren’t.
