GHOST SIGHTINGS – LUCID DREAMS – GHOSTLY ARMIES!

The belief in the existence of an afterlife, as well as manifestations of the spirits of the dead, widespread, dating back to animism or ancestor worship in pre-literate cultures.

Certain religious practices—funeral rites, exorcisms, and some practices of spiritualism and ritual magic—are specifically designed to rest the spirits of the dead. Ghosts are generally described as solitary, human-like essences, though stories of ghostly armies and the ghosts of animals rather than humans have also been recounted.

They are believed to haunt particular locations, objects, or people they were associated with in life. According to a 2009 study by the Pew Research Center, 18% of Americans say they have seen a ghost.
