The presence of water is believed to heighten paranormal activity, mainly ghost sightings. Its been theorized that because ghosts require the use of energy to appear and the impurities in water conduct electricity, ghosts may appear by using the conductivity. I am inclined to believe in this theory because I have had the most experience with sensing/seeing ghosts close to the Chesapeake Bay. The first encounter I had was one night where I was about to fall asleep. I was in the oldest bedroom in the house and was especially tired since I hadn’t been able to sleep the night before. I had just fallen asleep when I suddenly was awakened with a rush of adrenaline and panicked fear because I knew there was an older man watching me from a specific corner of the room. I tried to convince myself I was just loopy from not sleeping, but sensing the spirit had abruptly awakened me and I knew I was only trying to placate myself so I could return to sleep. It helped because I somehow knew the ghost did not mean any harm, I got the reassuring impression the man was a very good man who was simply intrigued by me. Perhaps I was sleeping in his bedroom since it was originally the only bedroom of the house. I suspected he had lived in the house and had fond memories of it.
The only time I was sure I had had seen a ghost was there as well. I was swimming around the perimeter of a pool and meditating and happened to think that I would like to see a ghost. I had recently been on a trip where I had talked to plenty of people who had seen and experienced ghosts. As I rounded the side of the pool to face the back garden I saw a wispy, immaterial figure that looked and moved like a tall, older man. It looked like he had on stripped pants. He walked across the yard and to the garden the way anyone would have. Initially I was scared, because he looked so much like a person I thought someone was walking through my yard (and I was home alone). Adrenaline smacked me and I started panicking about who was exploring my backyard and why. After a few seconds passed I realized there was no way it was a living person because the figure had no weight, it looked much more like an apparition. That’s when I was sure I had seen my first ghost. Somehow I knew the ghost was an older man and did not mean any harm. I believe it was the same man who had been watching me in the bedroom. Both times I had been alone, so I’m grateful the man was a good person. I even sensed that he felt protective of me. I was there for a long time by myself and came to really appreciate sensing his presence as it kept my company. I think I’m pretty lucky to have experienced such a kind hearted ghost, I’m sure water provides energy for some much scarier spirits.
