If there’s one thing I’ve noticed about ghosts and hauntings, it’s that there seems to be some sort of link between tragedy and the spirit world. This connection occurs in stories, movies and in many real life accounts of ghosts. For whatever reason, when someone is murdered or dies in a horrific accident, there seems to be a good possibility that that person doesn’t completely move on.
I’ve often wondered if this is because the person is hoping to remedy the situation somehow, or if they are just confused about what happened. It’s nice to think that by somehow solving the details of a death or accident, we may be able to help a lost spirit find its way, but it is also possible that they don’t really want to move on anyways, and enjoy spending time in this world.
Either way, I think it’s important for investigators to research the history of the places they visit, so they can use the knowledge from the past in their investigations. A bit of lost information could potentially help someone stuck in a spiritual limbo or even help educate modern day residents of a property about the history of a building. Tragedies happen, but I think there’s a lot we can learn from them.
