I am working with this contractor and he tells me ever since as a child he could see ghosts. Yikes... He said he hated it but there is nothing he could do. He has the 6th sense. When a person dies, i would assume they move on to the next life. So if there is ghost around does that mean the spirit is unable to leave this life time to move on to the next life time?
sometimes people are too attached to the material plane to move on. This happens thorugh sheer attachment but also often through people dying suddenly with no time to make piece. For this reason there are many ghosts of native american's haunting topanga in the la area where there was an indian massacre.
It happens a lot and these souls need help moving on.
Best is some kind of spirit worker who can see these beings and connect with them to help them move on.
In a teepee ceremony it sometimes happens that small whirlwinds manifest in the charcoal bed and go up through the opening of the teepee. That I´ve been told are spirits that are attracted by the drum sound, they then get help by the fire to find their way to other side. I´ve never seen it happen early in a ceremony interestingly enough, it seems that it has to come to maturity for it to happen. In some ceremonies it happens a lot.
