Ghosts are rarely violent; often, they manifest their presence through any of your senses. Their presence can be seen, felt, heard, or smelled. Since ghosts are rarely violent, having one in your home should not be a big concern. In fact, there are quite a number of people who co-exist under one roof with ghosts.
Not all people want to live with ghosts. A lot of people are scared of them, or at least frightened when the presence of these ghosts are felt.
Before anything else, you must make sure that the presence you have in your home is really caused by a ghost. It just might be the wind that slams your doors and windows, light reflected off shiny objects that appears in your pictures, or a problem with your house's foundation that makes it shift or make loud sounds.
How to get rid of a ghost
Once you have confirmed that it is really a ghost, there are certain things that you must and must not do. First, try hard not to be scared. Fear can only increase the ghost's energy. Instead, act calm. You are in the world of the living and a ghost has no power here, which means it can do you no harm. Panicking will only make things worse.
In most cases, these ghosts do not know that they are dead or perhaps need your help. Talking to them to let them know they are dead may help them move on to the next life. If you are brave enough, ask the spirit what he or she wants from you. You may be able to help.
If you think you can't handle talking to the ghost, just tell it to leave and that the place it is staying is your home. Never shout or get angry. These emotions will generate negative energy. Speak in a calm yet firm voice.
Many ghosts leave when told to, but if this does not work for you, then you will have to resort to other methods. Just take note that you should not use Ouija boards, tarot cards, or any witchcraft. You may risk summoning even more ghosts or spirits in your home that will add to your problems.
