When you think of ghosts, you might think of the movie “Ghost” where a deceased, loving husband tries to connect with his still living wife. Or you may think of haunted houses full of lost souls stuck in a building longing to torture the living. Or you might just think about a halloween costume made from throwing a sheet on top of your head and cutting out two holes for eyes. It is more common for someone to have a negative or scared reaction to the word ghost, thanks to how Hollywood represents ghosts in movies. But what is a ghost really?
Here is how the SOV team defines the term ghost:
"I believe a ghost is a spirit that manifests so that the living may witness its existence."
"'Ghosts' are the spirit, energy, or consciousness of a person who has previously left their body."
"I believe a ghost is another word for soul or spirit that does not have a physical body. I also believe the word “ghost” has evolved as referring to it as a negative aspect and Spirit to a positive."
