I believe in energy. The First Law of Thermodynamics states that energy can be changed from one form to another, but it cannot be created or destroyed. I think that everything we consider “spirit” or “god” or whatever you want to call it, is energy flowing in various forms.
I believe that energy and emotions are very closely linked. What most people consider “Karma” is simply a manifestation of the energy they project. If you project positivity, you will receive even negative events with a positive attitude. If you project negativity, you will receive negativity.
With this in mind, I think that “ghosts” are leftover emotions. I think that the love of our deceased loved ones remains with us and some of us are more in tune with that than others. I think that when people experience “evil,” it is likely related to unresolved pain and/or anger in their own lives.
So that’s my theory in a nutshell. Thanks for the writing prompt. I’ve been struggling with motivation.
