There are many people that are under the impression that apparitions are just ghosts, while an apparition is said to be a ghost that is not always the case. There are several little known facts about apparitions. An apparition or ghost is a form of the human mind that has survived the death of the body; whether it is what most people call the soul or consciousness of that person has not been definitively proven. Some call it the personality or the spirit that has been left behind on this plane of existence even if the body has died.
- One little known fact about apparitions is that the apparition seen is not always that of a person that has passed away. These types of apparitions are called “living apparitions”. The term that is used for a “living apparitions” is called bilocation, pretty much a fancy name for being two places at the same time. Some “living apparitions” are said to be intentional while others are not even aware that it has even occurred. It has been said that people have experienced bilocation trying to communicate with someone that is aware of the fact that they are trying to be contacted, sometimes calling it an out of body experience.
- There are also apparitions called Pseudo-apparitions, or fake apparitions if you will. Another little known fact about apparitions is that true apparitions will show awareness and intelligence, while a Pseudo-apparitions does not seem to be aware of its surroundings and does not seek interaction. Pseudo-apparitions are repetitive almost like the replay of a ghost video; some would call it a residual imprint. A residual imprint is thought to be the imprint of energy left on a certain location, more often than not it is the scene of a horrific event. The true apparition will always attempt interactions with those that it has appeared to, and show awareness and intelligence.
- Some apparitions are called apparitions in crisis, this has happened with living apparitions as well as true apparitions. This could very well come in handy one day. There are stories out there of people who have been in a situation near death, and a loved one will “see them” and where they are in time to send help. The person in crisis or near death has said at the time they only thing they could think of is their loved ones or close friends. Could it be that sending your thoughts out with intention to someone you have a connection with one day save your life? The next fact about apparitions is about true apparitions or ghosts. This often occurs within a day or two of dying or actual death. There are many reports of ghosts visiting a loved one to give one final farewell or giving the person they are appearing to some important piece of information; like the location of important documents such as a will.
- The absolute best little known fact about ghosts is the one that suggests that apparitions can be seen from different eras or dimensions. This form of apparition is very rare, and is said that they are as frightened of us as we are of them. An apparition from a different time or dimension is considered to be a true apparition in the sense that they will try to interact with those that can see them. The thing that makes an apparition from a different time or dimension is that they will attempt to convince the person that they have appeared to that they are the ones that have died.
