What Are Hauntings?
The more I write about this topic. The more I wonder what are exactly are hauntings? As a child I would see it as a "thing" trying to scare me. But,as an adult now. I see it as a mystery. Why do they haunt? Or, why is "it" hanging around in the first place. Or, are they just waiting.
There's always this general belief to why there are spirits that just wondering the earth. Some for punishment. Others, lost, residual. Or their there because of violence.
What lately I'm thinking. Can it be based on reincarnation? I was never a big fan of this idea. But, as I age. And, I see the people close to me dying. I remembered something that happened to me as a child that my mother told me. When I was around 3 to the age of 5. She said I would tell her things about places. Or, even about objects that I knew nothing at all about. For example we went to the New York City Museum. And, there downstairs were all these huge horse carriages. I knew parts, how the horses were treated. Who would ride each particular carriage. And, on and on. A guard that was there overheard me. He went straight to my mother and told her I was 100% correct. But, as I aged all this seemed to disappear.
What I have been thinking. Can it be a spirit, or ghost that goes looking to enter a chosen newborn? And, as the child ages the "soul" of that person slowly goes. That would answer where do all these spirits/souls go? Or, why that ghosts are not haunting every nook and cranny of the earth? It's just a thought. And, it still leaves me with the same question. What are hauntings? Maybe will never get the answer. Because were not suppose to.
