The book is aimed at all readers not just those who are interested in the esoteric. It introduces accessibly and surprisingly clearly the causes of the toxic relationships that arise between people and ghosts. It contains a large dose of psychology of the soul, testimony to the author's spiritual maturity. Ghosts are the souls of people who, after the death of their physical body, have not resolved to pass through to the other side of death's curtain. The reason for that is that, for various reasons, they overlooked their own deaths, didn't have the courage to go through to the other side or were detained or even pulled away from their road by those mourning the souls of their near ones. When they remain in the world of the living they possess people which can be the cause of very unpleasant and sometimes even tragic experiences.Starting with the mildest - the presence of ghosts in a person causes severe mood swings ranging from powerful explosions of negative energy to deep depressions. They bring out severe states of anxiety, they tempt those possessed to commit suicide, they have a powerful influence on the psyche and are the cause of psychiatric illnesses. In addition, the diseases of the dead person very often transfer through the ghost to the person possessed. Wanda Pratnicka is an exorcist and psychotherapist of world renown. Over the past thirty years, she has helped many thousands of patients throughout the world.

A ghostly tour of coastal North Carolina, South Carolina, and Georgia; Acclaimed storyteller Nancy Roberts takes the reader on a haunted tour of coastal North Carolina, South Carolina, and Georgia in this engaging new collection of thirty-three ghost stories and legends. In North Carolina, we hear of the restless spirit who troubles visitors to the Currituck Beach Lighthouse and the phantom ship that, though lost in a storm at sea, sailed into Beaufort Harbor for a final farewell. South Carolina provides the backdrop for tales such as that of the Union soldier killed at Charleston's Fort Sumter - more than a century later, a tourist is startled to discover the eerie, blue-coated figure of the soldier standing next to him. And in Georgia, we encounter ghostly pirates doomed to sail the creeks and inlets of St. Simons Island forever without rest, as well as rambunctious child spirits who roll pool balls down the hallways of a Savannah bed and breakfast, just as they did when their family lived in the house following the Civil War. These new tales and classic legends, all collected firsthand by the author, reveal a thrilling undercurrent to some of the southern coast's most popular destinations.

Darren.W Ritson
R348 R291 Discovery Miles 2 910 Save R57 (16%) Ships in 10 - 15 working days

Meticulously documented, The South Shields Poltergeist is a truly terrifying account which details the authors' struggle with an invisible, malicious entity that threatened and intimidated anyone who dared to stand up to it. Their encounter may well go down in the annals of psychical research as one of the most chilling true-life encounters of its kind. The book details the authors' investigation, over a period of several months, into what they believe to be the most intense, protracted and well-documented case of its kind. A man had his torso slashed severely; knives, coins and other objects were thrown around; a woman received sinister telephone calls and text messages from numbers that were supposedly disconnected; and children's toys spoke to the investigators. The book is based on the testimonies of those who actually experienced the South Shields Poltergeist at first hand.

SHORTLISTED FOR THE PEN ACKERLEY PRIZE 2020 'A uniquely strange and wonderful work of literature' Philip Hoare 'An exciting new voice' Mark Cocker, author of Crow Country In his late thirties, Edward Parnell found himself trapped in the recurring nightmare of a family tragedy. For comfort, he turned to his bookshelves, back to the ghost stories that obsessed him as a boy, and to the writers through the ages who have attempted to confront what comes after death. In Ghostland, Parnell goes in search of the 'sequestered places' of the British Isles, our lonely moors, our moss-covered cemeteries, our stark shores and our folkloric woodlands. He explores how these landscapes conjured and shaped a kaleidoscopic spectrum of literature and cinema, from the ghost stories and weird fiction of M. R. James, Arthur Machen and Algernon Blackwood to the children's fantasy novels of Alan Garner and Susan Cooper; from W. G. Sebald's The Rings of Saturn and Graham Swift's Waterland to the archetypal 'folk horror' film The Wicker Man... Ghostland is Parnell's moving exploration of what has haunted our writers and artists - and what is haunting him. It is a unique and elegiac meditation on grief, memory and longing, and of the redemptive power of stories and nature.

And why do they appear in our world?

From the case of a black-robed monk that terrorized a family for years, to the investigation of a talking mongoose, to true stories of gnomes, sorcerers, witches, and demons, this guide explores a bone-chilling gallery of the mysterious entities known as poltergeists.

R399 R274 Discovery Miles 2 740 Save R125 (31%) Ships in 10 - 15 working days

Examines how the ancient customs of constructing and keeping a house formed a sacred bond between homes and their inhabitants
- Shares many tales of house spirits, from cajoling the local land spirit into becoming one's house spirit to the good and bad luck bestowed by mischievous house elves
- Explains the meaning behind door and window placement, house orientation, horsehead gables, the fireplace or hearth, and the threshold
- Reveals the charms, chants, prayers, and building practices used by our ancestors to bestow happiness and prosperity upon their homes and their occupants
Why do we hang horseshoes for good luck or place wreaths on our doors? Why does the groom carry his new bride over the threshold? These customs represent the last vestiges from a long, rich history of honoring the spirits of our homes. They show that a house is more than a building: it is a living being with a body and soul.
Examining the extensive traditions surrounding houses from medieval times to the present, Claude Lecouteux reveals that, before we entered the current era of frequent moves and modular housing, moving largely from the countryside into cities, humanity had an extremely sacred relationship with their homes and all the spirits who lived there alongside them--from the spirit of the house itself to the mischievous elves, fairies, and imps who visited, invited or not. He shows how every aspect of constructing and keeping a house involved rites, ceremony, customs, and taboos to appease the spirits, including the choice of a building lot and the very materials with which it was built. Uncovering the lost meaning behind door and window placement, the hearth, and the threshold, Lecouteux shares many tales of house spirits, from the offerings used to cajole the local land spirit into becoming the domestic house spirit to the good and bad luck bestowed upon those who seek the help of the "Little Money Man." He draws on studies and classic literature from old Europe--from Celtic lands and Scandinavia to France and Germany to the far eastern borders of Europe and into Russia--to explain the pagan roots behind many of these traditions.
Revealing our ancestors' charms, prayers, and practices to bestow happiness and prosperity upon their homes, Lecouteux shows that we can invite the spirits back into our houses, old or new, and restore the sacred bond between home and inhabitant.
