When my girls were young and embarking on their first real Halloween, I realised something that really bothered me.
They were being taught that ghosts were scary.
As someone who has often seen and felt ghosts (psst… aka Angels.) I felt strange having Hollywood and pop culture try to convince my children that they should be really afraid of things that are usually unseen.
I was consistently scared growing up. Consistently.
I was positive someone was in my closet waiting for me to turn my back so they could stab me.
I watched way too many murder mysteries, but I also had a sense of something unseen, which my brain registered as scary.
I just didn’t know it was energy, or spirits… (or maybe myself visiting myself from the future which is something I love guiding my clients through. Another story for another time.)
So, early on I decided that I would help my children navigate with energy and learn to not see ghosts or spirits as Scary.
We are all spirits. We are all angels in physical bodies. Come to think of it, we are all ghosts.
Boo. (Couldn’t resist.)
However, saying that I will say that I have experienced ghosts in a number of ways.
This past September, for our 20th anniversary, my husband and I went to stay at the George and Pilgrim Hotel in Glastonbury UK.
Not only is it just across the street from the room we met in, and also around the corner from our first kiss, it is also one of the most haunted hotels in the UK.
It has 23 resident ghosts;
including a 16th century woman who smokes a pipe in the pub every morning (people smell the smoke at 6am),
a butler who will knock your drink over if he doesn’t like you, and a 15th century knight that sets off the CCTV every night at 2am.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
