Human fear plays a large role & ghost sightings & the experiences. When people began to
believe that they have a ghost haunting their home the natural fears involved push the
experiences along, creating an environment where anything, no matter how logical, become
something supernatural. People read about haunted houses & listen to what friends tell them
even if the information is wrong. The people living in a haunted location began to actively
participate in the haunting themselves. Listing closely for any strange noises or voices.
Adrenaline is released into the bloodstream. When they do this any little sound becomes
magnified & the other senses may be magnified as well. They will here are all kinds of natural
noises that were probably always there, but they never noticed before. They will lay awake at
night staring into the darkness of their rooms until their eyes finally see something that is not
there, a dark apparition, a shadow moving, or evil face looming back at them from the foot of their
bed. When there is a suggestion of the ghost or haunting the natural human fears will cause
people to expect to experience the supernatural.
Have you ever noticed the difference between a good commercial haunted house & one that is
just okay. The good one will have activities happening outside, while you wait in line. This
mentally "prepares" you to become scared. this is exactly what several "reality based" television
shows replicate to prepare their contestants before taking them to the "haunted" location.
Of course, this does not mean that there isn't a ghost or haunting occurring behind all the strange
happenings, but it is important to understand that the fear & human mind can in voluntarily create
an atmosphere of unnecessary terror.
The truth is that 99 percent of haunting cases are not violent & non intrusive. There is almost
nothing to be afraid of. Most of the terror felt comes from a fear of the unknown, an instinctive
method of human survival. Through education & understanding we are able to realize that ghost
are not here to threaten thus & in many of the cases the ghost are unaware of the presence of
living individuals. Many people who have learned to live with ghosts inside their homes have
described as an enlightening spiritual experience.
