Many facilities and ghost walks promote a particular kind of haunting or ghost sighting.
In this particular situation, the haunting has happened enough times that individuals have been able to provide consistent details for even the most skeptical person to not dismiss the claims. If you look up hauntings online you will discover many different stories that have the same elements – at a particular time, or on a particular day or date, X happens. What is X?
X can be someone appearing, or someone walking through a (closed) door, or someone walks across the room, or something similar of a similar nature and then, of course, they disappear, only to reappear another time. The individual/s perform regular, normal, every day ordinary actions that if you watched someone alive and breathing do you would not think twice about it, but when it is attributed to behavior of the dead, then something monumental is obviously happening and people get very excited when they see it take place.
This is what I call an emotional tear – because what happened is emotional energy was used to create “rip” in the energetic fabric in a particular space, at a particular time, and thus it repeats in a pattern that only makes sense when you have the background information to understand why it was created.
Emotional tears are spontaneously created through an emotional response to a traumatizing event. This trauma is so acute and the traumatized person never knows what he/she has done, yet long after they are gone the tear will be there…until it is fixed.
Sometimes an emotional tear has no visuals – just a clear sensation that feels very uncomfortable to the average person. I have encountered locations in old houses where the sensation of bone chilling cold was exhibited, but instead of being the normal answer of a portal there was an imprint. However, the most common known tears are those that have some person doing “something” – much easier to sell than trying to get people to stand in one spot for long enough to where they might feel something on the physical or emotional level.
An excellent visual example of an emotional tear for the uninitiated is actually in a movie I watched starring Daniel Radcliff called The Woman in Black. I am huge on knocking Hollywood for the crap they put out there, but I was amazed that they created a great visual representation of an emotional tear for that movie. While this is not real – it is a movie – it illustrates many of the criteria an emotional tear exhibits.
If you wish to watch the scene, the link is below:
At about 4.00 the audience begins to hear the noises of a horse in distress and then the character runs to the pathway that runs through the moor (when tide is down) and in the fog the audience continues to experience noises, voices, and flashes of images of a traumatic experience that happened, resulting in the death of a young child. At the last second, the fog parts and he sees a man standing next to him and his carriage in the background, so he writes it all off as imaginations. Later in the movie you get to see the whole scene go down.
How one defines trauma or what a traumatic event is is very hard, because the idea of trauma is extremely intimate to each person’s beliefs, mores, and cultural background.
In America (and other White Man run Worlds), Death, either unexpected or violent, is generally accepted to be traumatizing – mostly because the culture here does so piss poor little to prepare people for death. Indeed, the religious zealotry found in 20th century America is so filled with fire and brimstone that it has conspired to create an absolute dread of death and the dying process, inspiring both fictional writers and real life scientists to seek out for solutions (for mostly rich, old white men) to escape the eventuality of death.
Yet the idea of death itself is not always the source of the trauma – it’s the idea of what happens afterwards. For many centuries, women have lost their homes, their place in society, and in some cases their entire way of life when their spouse died, left vulnerable and at the mercy of those who did inherent the spouses money and position. Unfortunately, laws enforced this situation in many societies, disallowing women to own properties or retain their own financial wealth, so one can appreciate the terror a spouses demise might cause in a wife who was left without any means of support.
I experienced such an emotional tear in Williamsburg, VA while on vacation there. We were touring through one of the houses open to the public and I did find it interesting when the guide explained the house we were in was known for sightings of a ghost.
He explained that on a regular basis a young woman could be viewed to appear walking down the main hallway to stand at the top of the staircase. Then, she would turn around, walk back down the hallway, and then enter a room on the left – which was currently used as a library. Those who opened the door to see if she was in the room were inevitably disappointed to find that she was gone.
Even though the ghost did not appear for us, as I was there I checked out the environment and realized that what they were promoting as a ghost was merely an emotional tear and the story behind the tear was heartbreaking. Williamsburg seems very civilized to us at this point in time, but during the time when this tear was established it was a very brutal, harsh, uninviting environment to live in. Some families who moved there from England did so for either personal freedom or for the possibility that they could build wealth and status. Some were brought over as indentured servants, forced to stay and work off whatever debt they had incurred.
Regardless of the myriad of reasons, for many it was a one way trip and they would never return to England or those they loved. And for many, that in itself was traumatizing, especially after they realized how savage the English had become once removed from the polite society that dictated all their behaviors.
Emotional tears do not actively harm anyone and are usually of short time duration, but for those who are extremely sensitive they may be temporarily overwhelmed by whatever feelings the creator of the tear may have been experiencing. I have personally mended and cleared emotional tears that were influencing people negatively, so that once the tear was healed they stopped absorbing realized that they were merely reacting to the emotions locked into the location instead of what they truly desired.
I have heard stories from around the world of war-torn environments being almost unlivable due to the “restless spirits” that would rouse up at certain times of the day and/or night. I have experienced similar situations while living in North Carolina, as I encountered numerous places where Civil War battles took place but where now, civilization has developed. Many of the battlefields, which were areas that might originally have been a vegetable or animal field or a meadow or even a forested area, have over time been turned into city areas, streets, businesses, suburbs, and parks. From time to time I would access one of these environments only to realize the opportunity I had to access the energetic fabric and allow healing to take place on a deep, physical level for the earth plane.
