Haven't we all wondered how ghost talk to the living at one time or another? I was thinking about this the other day, and after digging into some old research of mine, I decided to cover this very topic as my next blog post.
So how is it that when ghosts of the departed are heard in haunted houses, on recording devices, or over ghost box radios that their voices sound rather similar to when they were alive? Now we all are aware of the various ways ghosts communicate with the living, but have you ever wondered why you might have felt a bit of familiarity in such an event? Firstly, the sounds of our voices imprint upon our consciousness so we retain that when we die. Usually when a ghost telepathically communicates with a person they knew in real life then the voice is often as the observer remembers it.
Ghosts need to have the energy to manifest in our reality so they save power where they can. Communicating directly with people’s minds is easier than physically vibrating the air molecules to reproduce their voice. Ghosts will often use telepathy to convey their voice forth. Since ghosts are a form of energy they register on the electromagnetic spectrum, and manipulation of that spectrum is how they manifest in various forms. This includes their voice being heard over the radio waves (EVP) which are the lowest energy on the EM spectrum. So recorded capture on devices, such as ghost spirit boxes, that receive radio waves are the most common form of spiritual communication with higher dimensional beings including ghosts of dead humans. Additionally some people can actually hear ghost radio wave voices thanks to a mix of their hearing abilities, and the ghosts’ projection power.
So the next time you want to communicate with your late great-aunt, just try to keep in mind the energy she is putting forth just to communicate with a nearness only you or another family member can recognize. It's actually sweet in a ghostly way.

As night falls over Valley Forge and Montgomery County, the winds whisper stories of America’s past. You can sense the spirits of the men at Valley Forge National Historical Park, Brandywine Battlefield and Washington’s Crossing. In daylight hours, historic sites bustle with cooking and spinning demonstrations. Re-enactments of battles and guided tours preserve and illuminate the past for visitors. But in some places, those echoes of the past turn to whispers of ghost stories, apparitions and strange happenings. Visit Graeme Park one clear, moonlit night, and you just might see the ghosts of Elizabeth Graeme Fergusson and her husband, Henry Hugh Fergusson, embracing by the glittering pond – together in death though separated in life.

Smells of bread baking fill Grumblethorpe when the ovens are cold. At Cresheim Cottage Cafe, an attic door mysteriously opens and shuts, and a young girl in Victorian dress mysteriously appears. And it’s said that if you dance with your true love in the Mirror Room of Arcadia University’s Grey Towers Castle, you’ll see a ghostly couple joining in. Another legend says you can feel the presence of a little girl on a stairway where she was accidentally strangled when her scarf caught on a banister as she ran down the stairs.

Begunkodor(Purulia): A group of pragmatists spent a night at a dark railroad station in Purulia trying to bust the myth that it is haunted. Rather, they chanced upon two or three local people, who were attempting to alarm the colleagues. Concealed in a far corner of the region close to the Ayodhya slopes, Begunkodor station has been reputed to be swarmed with phantoms for more than forty years.Often, travelers have been left terrified and even harmed following 'experiences' with spirits. On Thursday night, ten individuals from the Paschim Banga Bigyan Mancha (PBBM) with assistance from the Purulia region organization, police and railroads, stayed outdoors at the spooky station yet discovered nothing spooky. "There are a few apparition stories spun around the station. One is that a station ace and his significant other had set themselves ablaze at Begunkodor and their spirits can be spotted. Another talks about a lady who hanged herself from a tree adjacent. Lamentably, put something aside for a snake exasperating the water in a well and two or three men, who were attempting to panic us by making abnormal commotions, we experienced no other unsettling influence," said Nayan Mukherjee, region president, PBBM. In the course of the most recent couple of years, a few people — inspired by making a snappy buck — have energized individuals from Kolkata and somewhere else to visit Begunkodor station on 'phantom visits'. Around 10 pragmatists settled down at the station soon after 11 pm and afterward began making their rounds. Their first stop was a broken down well and for a minute they were shocked something was in the water. At long last, a light bar got the state of a water wind. The group at that point made a beeline for the opposite side of the little station building where a 'chhatim' tree stands. Nothing strange was distinguished close to the tree, accepted to be spooky. PBBM individuals likewise set two computerized compasses at the two closures of the station to get any attractive unsettling influence. The magnets did not identify anything. Neither do the two advanced cameras or tripods catch any irregular picture. While all these were going on, the group heard a clamor — half human, half creature — from the haziness behind the station building. "We needed to discover where it was originating from. Light bars got figures in the shrubs and we pursued them. We recognized several men fleeing. This is a ploy to downy vacationers, who visit the station searching for apparitions. As the guests escape, they abandon assets, which are stolen," said PBBM part Somnath Parta.
