Different Kinds of Paranormal Phenomena

Learn the Different Kinds of Paranormal Phenomena
Alternate Realities Center
There are different types of ghosts and unexplained phenonmena that may be haunting a place, or a person. Not all paranormal activity is equal. There are many different types of ghosts out there. You should learn about each one so you know what to expect if you come in contact with one. Here are several types of ghosts, or unexplained activity...

The Poltergeist: Poltergeists are ‘noisy ghosts.’ They have the ability to manipulate the physical environment. They can open windows and drawers. They can move chairs and push books off shelves. They can turn on bathtubs and turn off lights. They can slam doors and even start fires. Poltergeist activity usually starts off mildly, causing occurrences that people mistake as coincidences. However, as time passes, the activity will intensify. Sometimes the poltergeist will leave on its own, but other times it will end with deadly consequences.

The Interactive Personality: These are the most common ghosts. They are loved ones who are returning to bring you comfort or to convey important information they believe you should know. These ghosts can emit a scent like perfume or cigarette smoke in order to help you sense their presence. They can also make noises and might even speak to you. Interactive personalities retain the same personality that they had when they were alive and can still experience emotions. These ghosts are friendly and return because they know you need to see them again, they know you need their help.

Orbs: Orbs are the most common type of photographic evidence to support the existence of ghosts. They are either blue or white translucent balls of light that appear hovering over the ground in pictures. Orbs are the soul of a human or animal that is traveling from one place to another. They appear as circles because they shape makes it easier for them to get around. However, the longer they exist in our world, the easier they can transform into a full-bodies apparition. Funnel Ghosts: These ghosts are loved ones returning to visit. They most frequently appear in old historical buildings or inside of private homes where they once lived. Funnel Ghosts cause cold spots and when they are visibly seen they look like a swirling funnel. They can also be caught in photographs as a spiral of light.

Ectoplasm / Ecto-Mist: These ghosts appear several feet off the ground. They take the shape of a swirling mass of mist in either white, grey, or black. They can move quickly, but they can also choose to remain in place and orbit. They appear outdoors, in graveyards, in battlefields, and at historical sites.

Demonic Possessed Human Entity: When an evil spirit infiltrates a living person, it controls their conscious energy. Since they are inhabiting a physical body, these ghosts have a greater strength than the rest. They can move objects, hurt people, and kill as they please. They are as dangerous as demons.

Demons: These are powerful, supernatural beings. They can invade homes, attach themselves to objects, and inflict mental and physical torture. These ghosts can morph into any shape. However, they are most commonly witnessed as black masses standing in doorways. It is common for multiple demons to exist in the same location, because of energies that are blocking them from crossing over. These ghosts should never be challenged because they are capable of killing.

Shadow People: You can spot these ghosts out of the corner of your eye, but as soon as you turn to look at them, they will usually vanish. If you happen to see them face-to-face, you will notice an extremely dark void. A silhouette of a person. They could be wearing a hood or a cloak. Soon after you spot them, they can retreat into corners, through walls, into closets, and into televisions. They could even fade into the darkness of night.

Crowd Demon: These ghosts are attracted to crowds. They only show up in locations that are occupied by large groups of people. When they are photographed, they take the form of distorted shapes.

Animal Ghosts: Although they can appear as full-body apparitions, animal ghosts are commonly heard rather than seen. They might scratch on the doors or on walls, make scraping sounds against the floor, whine, or bark.

Inanimate Ghosts: These ghosts are embodied by objects rather than people. They can take the form of ships, cars, trains, or even lamps. These ghosts create residual hauntings, which means there is no interaction between you and the ghost. What you are seeing is only a playback of events that have already occurred. The event is imprinted in the area because of its significance. You are not in any danger, because you are not actually witnessing a ghost, you are only witnessing leftover energy.

Doppelganger: These ghosts can project themselves in multiple places at once so that there are multiple beings that look exactly the same. They can even mimic the look of someone who is still living, which is why you might swear you have seen a loved one when they were in a completely different location.

Lemur: These are angry ghosts who wander. They are associated with darkness, doom, and misfortune. The reason they are so malevolent is because they had their life cut short and did not have a proper burial. They might not have had family to mourn them, either.

Artificial Ghosts: These ghosts are created from storytellers. When a group of people get together and put a name to a ghost, their spiritual energies can manifest that ghost into creation. This is the rarest type of ghost.

Ghost Bigfoot UFO Paranormal Expeditions
Appalachian GhostWalks UFO ToursAppalachian GhostWalks invites you, your family and friends, or tour group to come and explore the mysteries of our mountain heritage. In addition to our many historic and authentically haunted hotspots, a variety of paranormal experiences and encounters have been documented throughout the mountainous regions of Southern Appalachia since February 1994.
The follow-up research and documentation of these unexplained and often astounding experiences were originally presented within the pages of "The American UFO Journal", later to become "The Alternate Realities Chronicles", both of which were orginial transcript publications of UFO sightings and other worldly encounters as reported to the center by way of the "UFO Sightings and Information Hotline" and The ARC's "Extraordinary Experience Case Submission and Documentation Form". The most interesting and well documented cases of unexplained aerial phenomena have now been correlated to present a world's first - The Appalachian UFO Close Encounters Expedition" TM. Designed to thrill and amaze believers and skeptics alike, the research and investigation of the many strange encounters our guests hear
about was performed by the cooperative efforts of the American Bigfoot and United States UFO Information and Research Centers as well as The ARC, or Alternate Realities Center. Your Appalachian GhostWalks' Mountain MysteriesTM Adventure Guide will weave together a chilling story of the first-hand, eye witness accounts and extraoridinary experiences within our mountain communities for a exciting, fun-filled family adventure.Appalachian GhostWalks' Bigfoot Tours

The Alternate Realities Center
The ARC - Alternate Realities Center is a member supported, not-for-profit organization founded in February of 1994 to study all manner of phenomena that are classified as "the fringe" by most branches of Science. Appalachian GhostWalks was created as a public awareness program of The ARC to reveal the wondrous and often haunting discoveries made at hundreds of Federal, State, and Local Historic Sites throughout our region. Thus, there is nothing false, fictitious, or made-up on any of our tours and vacations package productions - you'll always get REAL Tennessee and Virginia History and TRUE Smoky Mountain Ghost Stories! Through the indepth investigations (conducted before the first walk was ever presented at each location) and by way of the resulting tours which followed, the goal has always been to lend evidence in support of a belief to which so many of us cling. A faith suggestive that when our body stops working there is more which lies ahead for us all. We invite you to come and discover the amazing results of our investigations, in combination with the region's documented history - which actually verified our findings. Facts which will truly give you a spine-tingling feeling for who is haunting these locations and why they are here! Altogether, a positive reflection on the afterlife, appropriate for all ages, and proudly supporting Saint Jude's Children's Research Hospital.

******* This has been the Alternate Realities Centers page offering additional information about Different Types of Hauntings Ghosts and Unexplained Phenomena - as anyone who has ever experienced a ghost will tell you that there are different types of ghosts and different types of unexplained phenomena that may be responsible.
