What Exactly is A Spirit?



  An incorporeal but ubiquitous, non-quantifiable, substance or energy present individually in all living things. Unlike the concept of human souls, which is believed to be eternal and preexisting, a spirit develops and grows as an integral aspect of the living being. This concept of the individual spirit is common among traditional peoples. It is therefore important to note the distinction between this concept of spirit and that of the pre-existing or eternal soul because belief in souls is specific and far less common, particularly in traditional societies.

  A Spirit is the actual consciousness or soul of an individual that has passed on and continues to be observed in an area. There are four common reasons why Spirits exist:

  1. 1) The person does not realize that he or she is dead.

  2. 2) There is unfinished business or an un-kept promise after      death.

  3. 3) The Spirit is simply saying goodbye to a loved one.

  4. 4) The Spirit has returned to offer advice.
