Could ghosts exist as energy waves?

Could ghosts exist as energy waves? Are they on planes of existence that we don’t know about?


Many people believe in an afterlife. Some people believe it’s exactly as described in their religious scriptures.

So, to them, “ghosts” are demons. They’re servants of (or proxies for) the Devil.

I disagree with that generality.

Discussing ghosts, it’s easy to wander into conflicting beliefs. Even scientists avoid that kind of pitfall.

Science simply isn’t advanced enough to address the subject of ghosts, conclusively, one way or the other.

– We can’t prove that ghosts exist.
– We have no evidence of the world where they might live.
– We don’t know if it’s actually our reality or something on the other side of an invisible membrane.
– We don’t understand what connects ghostly phenomena to a location.

This is true of ghosts and residual energy hauntings.

With that in mind, my answer to this question is yes. Ghosts could exist on energy waves or planes of existence that we don’t know about, or at least can’t prove.

Ghost Meter ProI usually ghost hunt with a yes/no device like a loosened flashlight or Ghost Meter Pro.  Early in the conversation, I ask, “Are you alive and well and living in your own time?”

At least 20% of the time, the answer is yes.

(Yes, I know that the Ghost Meter Pro looks too “as seen on TV” to take seriously. I tried it anyway, and I was impressed. Now, it’s one of the top EMF meters I use in my investigations.)

Author Rosemary Guiley once described an experience she’d had. She was using a Ouija board at a haunted site. (That’s something I do not recommend.)

She asked, “Do you have a message for us?”

The ghost’s response was, “No, do you have a message for us, Rosemary?”

Many ghost hunters have had similar experiences.

I believe some “ghosts” aren’t dead. They’re just in a parallel realm, very much like ours.

Their century may not be the same as ours, but everything else seems similar to our reality. It’s just from the past, the future, or an alternate present.

I can’t explain this so it makes sense to everyone. Science-based researchers may think in quantum terms. Christians may prefer the “many mansions” concept offered in the Bible, in John 14:2.

But, I’m content to believe that some “ghosts” are alive, not dead. And, they’re in another reality or plane of existence where – sometimes – they can interact with us.
