Why Speak To The Spirits?


A lot of the time when I read of true ghosts stories or other spiritual encounters, advice is given to talk to the beings and try to help them move on. Why is this advice given?

I have seen and felt spirits all my life (19 years). I remember seeing an angel, a demon, and a ghost all in the same house, but my dad remembers me seeing more than that and sobbing from it. I guess I was too young to be able to remember everything I encountered. But anyway... I lived in a couple haunted houses with definitely malevolent spirits and energies in them. I lived in another with a grumpy but kind spirit who helped me once in the night, and I do not feel like he wanted to "move on". There have been countless others I've felt in and around me.

What I'm trying to say is that I was incredibly scared of the malevolent spirits! I still am, in an odd way. Why would I want to talk to them, invite them in, to get them to move on? Even the many nice but troubled spirits I've encountered have been scary to me in that I do not understand them and they can be very distracting when I'm trying to study or sleep or something. The idea of inviting an unknown entity to talk to me, of opening up more dangerous possibilities, is absurd to me!

So again, why do people say to talk to the things that haunt us? What am I misunderstanding here?

I welcome all answers and ideas regarding anything I've written here.

I agree! I couldn't have said it better myself! Why open a door to unknown, 'anything that's out there' spirits, by talking to them, so that they can invade the privacy of your home and your life WHENEVER THEY FEEL LIKE IT! (With unknown consequences, I must add...). We are entitled to have our own peace and privacy aren't we? Next time you see or sense a spirit, don't talk to it. Just say: 'IN THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST, GO AWAY! AND GOD BLESS YOU!' That's it! Stay safe. God bless!

If they want to move on, they would have done it already. Just leave them be. People might say to talk to them is probably because, well, if you were dead, and you can't just talk to anyone, wouldn't you get lonely? And spirits know secrets and like most humans, it is hard to keep something to yourself. Also, maybe you can talk to them and have the feeling that you want to help them move on, is because they are allowing you to. They need help but are to stubborn to admit it.

Every answer given to people who ask, "I am seeing ghosts" is going to vary depending on who is asked. Some people say talk to them and some say run like hell. I dislike the word "should." As in, "You should do this and you should do that." It's nice advice and it's given because people are asking in the first place, but do what you want. If they scare you, don't speak to them. If you're very curious about them and they don't scare you, start a dialog. Ignore them or don't ignore them. Do what you want.

Some people have had inspiring success telling spirits to move into the light, talking to them, or whatever, which is why they recommend it. It's like anyone with a positive experience, you tend to recommend that course of action to the next person, but like any label that might read, "results will vary." The spin on "talk to them" is that they are trying to be positive.

However, if you're dealing with a demon this may not be so pleasant. Common sense is a bonus here. I personally go with my gut feelings, not necessarily with what others are telling me.
