1How Do Places Become Haunted Empty How Do Places Become Haunted on Sun Oct 21, 2012 9:09 pm


We all know that haunted places exist.
That chill along your spine, the feeling of dread, and sudden drop in
temperature are all physical signs that you experience in a haunted
locale. However, how do places become this way? Some very famously
haunted places have well known ghostly residents who have extensive
stories about why their spirits linger in a particular place—such as a
person who was wrongfully tortured into death or deeply betrayed by a
dear friend or loved one that resulted in death. Many places tend to
naturally draw ghosts simply because of what they are and what naturally
happens in those places, meaning that prisons, hotels, and of course
cemeteries are favorite haunting areas for the departed who have not
fully moved on. Yet, some of the most common places that are haunted
may not have such a specific story or might be just a seemingly random
house. Where do these spirits come from and most importantly how do
they make certain places their base of operations for haunting the

Shades of Gray

Each individual person is unique in
personality, experience, and countless other factors. Therefore, the
imprint of a deceased human (their spirit or ghost) retains these
specialized factors if they are unable to move on after death. These
unique characteristics mean that each story attached to each ghost and
thereby haunting locale is different. Many different factors exist to
explain how a place becomes haunted because of the natural ability of
humans to vary from each other on numerous levels. Do not expect each
haunted location to be haunted for the same reasons since they are all
haunted by different spirits and therefore different people with their
own stories to tell the living.

Common Factors

Even though no background for a haunting
will be exactly the same as another, some common themes do pop up in
the majority of haunted places. The history of the building or area is
always a primary factor. A very old place that has a long history of
human use and habitation is more likely to be haunted than a newer one
as the chances increase dramatically that bad things have happened there
as the likelihood of at least one person experiencing something very
negative at the locale is rather high. Bad events or situations always
increase the probability of a place being haunted as well because
spirits who have not been affected by ill fated happenings generally
have no problem crossing over to the other side or moving on while those
who are the center of such an occurrence feel bound to this world until
they receive some form of justice, retribution, or simply someone
knowing their personal stories of sorrow. Violent deaths, cruelty, and
abuse are some of the most prominent events that bind a ghost to the
earthly realm. Yet, other happenings like severe unhappiness, betrayal
by someone dear to their hearts who they trusted implicitly, and even
intense sickness can all act as a negative situation that makes a ghost
feel they cannot move on even after the death of their mortal bodies.
All of these attributes seep into the location whether in the walls of
the building or the soil of the ground itself to leave a certain ghostly
energy or impression. Battlegrounds in particular can be a place where
actual blood seeping into the ground can create a spiritual residue
where unsettled ghostly beings can manifest and linger on the land
itself and even on buildings or houses that are later built on the
historically blood stained ground. Overall, human pain and suffering
are the major factors that tend to dictate whether a location will
become haunted or not. It is not like many stories exist about ghosts
who haunt sporting arenas or theme parks like Walt Disney World, and
this rarity in spirit haunting examples links to the fact that those
places tend to lack pain and in fact the locations are filled with
happiness and high, excited emotions. Many spirits are considered to
haunt places where their own personal pain was thought to be the
greatest, but occasionally spirits will reside in places of general pain
and suffering that was a part of their lives in some fashion. Ghosts
basically tend to keep in places that they considered to be their own
during their former lives and areas that was once very closely linked to
themselves as a living human being.

Why Though?

Many ghost hunters believe that spirits
haunt places that are filled with strong negative emotions in order to
tell the story of that area to living humans—which is why these deceased
entities tend to haunt places that are the source of their personal
pain and sufferings since they want others to know of their own story in
that location. These spirit professionals know very well that a ghost
makes noises or movement to let their presence be known to the living
beings or because they are particularly upset at the time, linking to
the very human aspect of mood swings. Most ghosts really try to make
themselves known in a form that resembles the figure that they held in
life so that living people could see them as they once were and
hopefully impress the vivid memories that are holding them to the
physical plane. The combination of their former selves (both in semi
appearance, actions, and mannerisms) will generally be a way for them to
let others know who they were and lead those individuals into an
investigation of the spirit’s personal past since their mere presence
indicates that their previous life was not average, normal, or
significantly filled with happiness. This desire to let the living know
of their past hardships and uncommon problems or issues mean that the
ghosts really will reveal themselves to all kinds of people from various
age groups, walks of life, and most importantly whether these people
who visit the haunted locale believe in the presence of spirits or not.

Avoidance of Homes

Some of the most vivid ghost haunting
examples that the majority of people can easily recall upon demand take
place in a haunted house. However, there are several reasons why these
home based tales are the most intense even though statistical
investigations show that houses are very low on the list of places which
can be frequently haunted by spirits. Our homes are our hearts. They
are the safe retreat of the living as their own personal refuge, meaning
that having an angry or upset spiritual entity invading our private and
fortified spaces obviously makes us very scared and intimidated. That
fact of being extra scary in addition to the major shock of even hearing
about someone having a haunted home is enough to make anyone remember
incidences of house haunting. Yet, pure numbers tell us that ghosts
actually tend to avoid homes in preference of other locales. Ghosts
need a great deal of energy in an area in order to materialize, and
personal houses do not have enough to make manifestation easily possible
for most spirits. Larger places that attract a greater number of
people (hotels, cemeteries, museums, churches, ships, or even dance and
music clubs) supply more emotional energy in the air for ghosts to use,
which make them a better choice that the homes of living humans.
