Ghosts are a particular form of Fragment, however I still call them ghosts myself, they are just part of the Fragment family the ones that happen to get stuck on buildings or places rather than human beings. It's because they are made of etheric and astral material we can sometimes see hear and feel them etc, and on some occasions they can be recorded on mechanical equipment and photographed etc.



Provided its remembered that Ghosts are formed of hardened astral and etheric matter, and are treated accordingly, Ghosts are always easily removed.



For a simple method of seeing your own etheric body that nearly everybody can perform, please go to the Etheric Body page.



Earthbound spirits.



Earthbound spirits are exactly what the name implies, the higher essence (Spirit) of a person who has left their physical, etheric and astral bodies behind. But, for any number of reasons stays close to the physical plane.


People often mistakenly assume Ghosts and Earthbound Spirits are one and the same but they're not, the difference between the two is how they come into being, fragments are the byproduct of the natural process of decomposition of the two densest subtle bodies. Earthbound spirits have left behind their etheric and astral bodies, and are formed of extremely subtle energy.


Earthbound Spirits can be communicated with by someone with a reasonable degree of mediumistic ability, and will sometimes get stuck to human beings despite lacking etheric and astral bodies, because human beings also have higher subtle bodies, however Earthbound Spirits are unable to manifest upon the physical plane. If you think of the spirit leaving the physical body as stage one of the death process, and the spirit leaving first the etheric than astral bodies as stage two and three, then earthbound spirits are in stage four. At this stage the spirit hasn't necessarily understood it no longer has a physical body, or it doesn't feel it's life has been absolutely completed, therefore it may be totally lost, or feel there is something it absolutely must do before moving into stage five.


Earthbound spirits if they are simply lost and unable to find their way are extremely easy to help (remove) by guiding them through stage five and into stage six. If on the other hand they are not lost and have a purpose in staying near the physical plane, it would never be appropriate to simply move them on against their will, and before they've completed their purpose.


In my experience the best way of helping an earthbound spirit with purpose, is to hand over the task to a high level Guide (Positive non-physical subtle energy life-form), if there is something one can do to aid the process on the physical plane, for example when one is bothering a live human being, the Guide will communicate what needs done, a high degree of finness and humility is needed in these matters as not only does one need to take into account the clients needs and karma but also the Earthbound Spirits, only arrogance would allow one to assume that one was capable of seeing any situation from every and all angles, a high level Guide will always have a much better overview than a mere human.





Non-physical subtle energy life-forms



Non-physical subtle energy life-forms. Just as life fills every nook and cranny on the physical plane, so non-physical subtle energy life-forms fill every nook and cranny of the nonphysical planes, the physical plane is only a tiny speck compared with the nonphysical planes. To list even a tiny percentage of the intelligent energies negative or positive out there would be impossible, simply because most of them have no given name. Luckily despite our arrogance in assuming everything is interested in us, the overwhelmingly vast majority of non-physical subtle energy life-forms, have no interest in us whatsoever. The few negative ones that are interested in us, I've covered in the Demon page, the positive ones I've covered at the bottom of this page.



Astral wildlife



Astral wildlife is a bit of a catchall phrase, usually meaning troublesome but not very intelligent energies that abound within the various levels of the astral. The ones that are attracted to, and congregate near the physical plane are often confused with Fragments, and admittedly at times they can be hard to tell apart if adequate discrimination techniques are not used. This confusion has led to Astral Wildlife getting an undeserved bad reputation, Astral Wildlife rarely interferes with human beings of their own volition, on the other hand, anyone travelling the astral levels is bound to encounter them, if we deliberately swim in shark infested waters, is it the sharks fault we get eaten or our own? On the rare occasions any form of Astral Wildlife impinges upon the physical plane, it is appropriate to compel them to move on, but not destroy them, all types of Astral wildlife are valid forms of autonomous intelligent existence, like you and I, they may at times seem ugly, and not behave in a way we recognise, but they have chosen a form of evolution that is just as valid as our own.



Positive Non-physical subtle energy life-forms.



To understand the difference between positive and negative, nonphysical subtle energy lifeforms, we have to remember we live in a universe expressed in the form of duality, matter non-matter, light dark, physical nonphysical, Ying and Yang. At all levels within the universe there are polar opposites, on this planet we see these opposites in action for example in the form of life and death, decomposition and rebirth. In the universe stars and even galaxies are ripped apart only for the dust and gases etc to reform into new stars and galaxies. At each stage there are intelligent forces guiding these processes, some of the highest positive forces we are familiar with are the Angels, who orchestrate the birth and life of matter. Conversely some of the most powerful negative forces we are familiar with, we call Demons who orchestrate the death and destruction of matter.


Though angels fall into one of the most powerful groupings of positive energy in the universe they are most definitely interested in humanity, as they are with all physical lifeforms. The equivalent Demons at this level have virtually no interest in us whatsoever, we are less to them, than an Ameba is to most of us.


Towards the other end of the scale are subtle energy lifeforms many of us are familiar with in the form of Guides. Guides come in many different forms, we each have a personal Guide who at some point in its past has themselves been a being with a body. They perform the task of a friend trying to keep us on the straight and narrow, with advice and guidance using wisdom a few stages beyond our own. Sadly they are rarely listened to, though in some special circumstances they can and do remind us they are continually with us.


There are also specialist guides, also with wisdom a few stages beyond our own, who are willing to help us when asked.


And beyond them, there are many energies willing to function as Guides with wisdom beyond imagination, who can perform what most people would consider the miraculous. What separates this level of guide from the personal and specialist guides, is their level of spiritual evolution, personal and specialist guides have reached the stage where they no longer incarnate into physical form, preferring to continue to evolve by helping others, whilst the former have their own tasks to perform and only turn their attention towards us when approached by us. It would be fruitless to try to split these energies into understandable categories and to discuss the tasks they perform because there are more of them than there are human beings who have ever incarnated upon this planet.


Equally there are roughly the same number of negative energies performing their tasks. Only when negative energies, and occasionally positive energies, forget their purpose and slip into a form of unconsciousness towards the whole, ( one could call this God ) do they become likely to turn their attention towards us.




Elemental energies are also often confused with the negative energy and again I have given them their own page.
