Fear of Ghosts, Spirits, and Lost Souls – Exorcisms, Hauntings, Paranormal Activity
Acharya Shree, should we fear ghosts? We’re not supposed to fear ghosts. Only ghosts are seeking revenge with whom. If they are…they
know in the past life they were weak, suppose. Suppose they were employees in the company and the CEO or
the boss was taking advantage of the person. And the person was very depressed. Person cannot…was always restless. Comes back to home and he justs thinks
about boss: “Why he is not promoting me? Why he is promoting the junior to me?” “They are not even senior and they are promoted.” So they accumulate that kind of revenge. And if that person
who is employee under the boss, and if he committed suicide or sudden accident, he dies, he can become a ghost. And that ghost, first thing he will take revenge of that boss. He will go to that home, he will disturb his children, he
will disturb his wife, he will disturb him. Sometimes if they know the trick, they can remove your clothes from your closet. They can misplace your jewelry, they can misplace your money,
but they are extreme that time. So we should fear only that way that if you have disturbed someone.
If you never disturb someone the ghost cannot come after you. Unless the ghost is living there, that’s what I was telling you that they live mostly
on the huge tree or abandoned homes, or the house used to belong to them. And they don’t find the place so they feel comfortable there. So if that kind
of place if you are careful you don’t have to be afraid of ghosts. Ghosts, they don’t bother you. Only those people are
bothered which they were bothering in that…those…in the lifetime. Like I gave an example, a boss was…or in the family.
If one of the parents is bothering a child. And child cannot fight with you. So what will happen, if something happen to the
child…got killed by an accident – that child maybe supposed to live 75 years more. So now that child is most of it
75 years without body can disturb you. That family or the friends which he didn’t like. But you’re not supposed to be
afraid of ghosts. Mostly, after a while, they don’t bother…they settle down. And they don’t go after people. Once, in the beginning,
when they become a ghost they’re really after the people. So that is the only time the family which he was killed, if he has friends
who were disturbing him – that is the only…be afraid for awhile, maybe couple years. After couple years, that ghost or that spirit will settle down and will calm
down. They will accept that I cannot have the body…physical body. And they begin to feel because they talk to the other ghosts “How long are you exist?”
“Since 50 years. But there is no way I can get the physical body.” So they kind of get used to it. And they begin to calm down. And the
other ghosts teaches them not to disturb otherwise you are going to collect alot of karma. And that’s the way they calm down after awhile. So in that state ghosts are mostly lost
spirit. They don’t bother you. So you don’t need to be afraid of them. But in the beginning time, yes. Or unknowing because you don’t know
because you are not on that level, you can’t see them. So you don’t know what you are doing, you are messing up
with them because you cannot see them, they see you. So that is the only time they can disturb you. But I will still
suggest to you if these unnatural things happen into your house or with you… So you can discuss with the person who is on
the higher level and can solve your problem. You cannot solve that problem. Maybe the other person can solve the problem. Let me tell you
one more thing. When these things happen, they go to the churches, they talk to the priest. Priest doesn’t know. Priest is not on that level. Priest is a professor.
He’s worse than professor. Professor at least teaches in the school whatever education. He repeats from the book – that is called professor.
He’s a professional. He can repeat. You cannot. So you cannot be a professor if
you cannot repeat what is written in the book. And priest, they are worse than professor because they have just one
or two book like priest in the church is bible. They get expert in the bible. They can repeat again and again and again.
Same thing hindu priests. Same thing rabbis. Same thing ministers. They repeat and repeat and repeat. So it becomes their profession. They are not on that
level yet to see the ghost, so it is useless to talk to the priest, pastor, rabbi. What they will do the family may feel “Oh, this rabbi, this pastor, he prayed for
us.” That is psychology. But the problem is not over. Problem is still there. You need to find a person if you encounter this kind of problem in your
life. You need to find a person who is on the higher level to solve your problem. And it can be solved. But don’t be afraid. Just understand they are lost, they are restless, they
are homeless. Even they calm down but it doesn’t mean they are not, they are not in peace. So you cannot see them, they see you. So try to be, even you
live in your home I will tell you keep clean, keep clean your home. What about if someone, lost soul or spirit comes there and begins to
live? And you don’t know, you cannot see it. But as soon as you encounter any problem, try to approach a person
who can talk about it and who can solve your problem. Don’t be afraid. To be afraid doesn’t solve the problem. Be strong. And you can solve all of your problem
if it is that kind of problem. So, remember lost souls, spirit, ghosts, they are there. But they’re not after
you. You cannot see them. Sometimes by mistake they disturb you.
