Ghost

A ghost is the intangible manifestation of a deceased person or animal’s soul or spirit. It can appear as either an exact representation or likeness of the deceased, or it can be a more abstract shape.

Ghosts are typically thought to be the result of either a significant trauma, such as a violent death, the strong need to finish something that couldn’t be completed during the spirit’s life, or from the individual not being aware that they have died. Helping to resolve the trauma, completing the unfinished business or making the spirit aware of its death can sometimes help it to pass on to its afterlife.

Accounts of ghosts occur worldwide and exist in a wide variety of religions and cultures.
