Hello all.
Can anyone explain why the paranormal is so often frightening. I experience ghosts as scary like everyone and wonder what ghosts want from us. Are they needing help to move to light?
Are they evil demons pretending to be ghosts like some religions think?
I just need to know why ghosts are always nearly always scary and what do they want us to do?

Hey, bbb, welcome to the forum. In my opinion it's because gods and angels tend to not interfere with the tangible universe. They prefer to observe and only step in when absolutely necessary, or so it seems.

I think a lot of these spirits we end up encountering are malicious because they feel we've done them wrong. If not for vengeance, I suppose theres another reason they have a bone to pick with us.

With the souls still on this side of the hedge, more often than not they're either unaware that they're dead or cant cope with that fact. This is why many exorcists and investigators cleansing homes tend to ask the human souls to go to the other side.

I have had many experinces of the paranormal so much so that I lost friends who thought I was too scary and spooky for them. I am fascinated by the paranormal and always find myself happy when I think about such things. Once for example in the graveyard behind my house myself and my brother took a short cut to get in through the back garden at night and as we walked through the graveyard we felt scared and I laughed and said "any spirits then show me your power" and immediately the wind was enormous. I looked in front of me and I said to my brother "you see that " and he said "what the dog running towards us"
I swear I never said that and he saw it just like me. I looked just like a sausage dog. The wind was so feirce and we legged it out through the gates and when back outside there was no wind whatsoever. The strangest thing is ten years later we adopted a very old sausage dog from battersea dogs home and when he died we buried him in our back garden just next to the graveyard. Maybe ghosts exist before they are born. He was not even born when we saw this dog coming towards us. Boy we were scared.
This is just the tip of the iceberg of my experiences! I want to go on ghost hunts as I love it all.

Yes that makes a lot of sense. I guess they need assistence to cross over. Or perhaps they are not allowed into heaven. It always seems like ghosts are like petty bullies as they have these powers and we dont and they use their advantages to terrify us like a bully.

Hi BBB. Think of it this way. We honestly don't know what some of these things are. We assume many things, but we actually don't know the what or the why of paranormal events. Some of the newer theories propose a whole different look at the paranormal for a mulitdimension or interdimensional viewpoint, which changes the whole picture of who and what ghosts and entities may be and our perception of them. The "what if's" are just too many to assume any motivations for some of these things. We need a lot more answers first.

Yes I agree. It seems, when we look at explanations that these souls are trapped in between life and heaven. Maybe they are scaring us to get us to help them.

Always a possible! Or, is this simply trying to get our attention in the only way they can and it scares us because we don't understand it?

I believe they scare people because we fear the unknown and these things can't be captured and labelled and because we don't understand their motives.
