Strange Ghost Fact #1: Some people think of their ghosts as pets

How to Prevent Yourself From Becoming a Ghost

This Friday, October 29 at 8:00 pm CST

Question: Sometimes my dog growls when there’s no one in the room. It seems like he’s paying attention to things that aren’t there. What’s going on?!


Ghost Fact: If your dog growls or your cat hisses at nothing or your children talk to “nothing,” chances are you have a ghost or a visiting spirit.

“Here’s another strange fact: some people think of their ghosts as pets, and what’s sad is that these souls often think of themselves as pets. They’re grateful to be loved, no matter where it comes from.

When we run into this type of situation, we talk to the ghost about going to the other side and developing some real relationships with other souls. We tell it that it deserves better than to be someone’s pet. These ghosts usually have very low self-esteem, so we are gentle and loving toward them. But it is also important to be firm about the fact that they need to set themselves free and begin a new way of having relationships. Ghosts are people, not pets.” — excerpt, The Little Book of True Ghost Stories, Echo Bodine
