As a ghosthunter and paranormal investigator, I am often asked this question: “Why do ghosts linger around one location?” My answer: “Theory has it, that when a person dies, they may have been very religious, they see the light and instead of going into the light, they think of their past sins. They feel that if they enter the light, that they will be judged and may face Hell, eternal damnation. So, they have the option of not going into the light.
What then happens, the ‘ghost police’, or entities from a higher power, call them angels if you may, tell the new ghost, that if they do not go into the light, that they are trapped within the confines of the home, business or a place that they are familiar with. An energy grid is placed over the area, in which this new ghost doesn’t have the ability of escaping. It could be a situation in which a grandmother has unfinished business, because her granddaughter is expecting and she dies without seeing the baby. She decides not to go into the light, because she wants to see the baby born. She sees the baby and falls in love with the baby and decides to stick around to watch over the baby, instead of going into the light. When an entity goes into the light, that’s usually it, they are never seen again. Theory has it, that if you take an object from a haunted home and place it in your home, then you opened up a portal, or a ghostly wormhole for the entity to travel from point A (the haunted home) to point B (to your home). This is the only time a ghost can follow you home, because you have taken an item that this entity is fond of and the energy of this entity engulfs the object.
