Real Life Ghosts
Real Life Ghosts: Seeking to Find Ghosts in Real Life!
Recently, I attended a public ghost investigation of an old theater. Before people could
explore the old, historical building with meters, cameras and audio recorders, I gave a talk
about ghosts, haunting and how they communicate with us. I wanted to stress to the audience
that we need to have compassion for ghosts. After all, they are human spirits that are lost. If
we believe this, then why would we treat ghosts any different than we would treat another
human being? It seems
real life ghosts have gotten mixed-up in a ghost craze.
One would have to be blind not to see an increased
interest around the world concerning ghosts and ghost
investigation. Television shows about ghosts have created
numerous paranormal investigators and groups. Most are
searching for proof that ghosts exist. Some are seeking to
help families undergoing a haunting. Many do not know
what they are doing but enjoy toying with the unknown. In
the midst of this great quest for a “ghost experience,”
media companies have create a misunderstanding of
real
life ghosts
. To those who promote fear, ghosts are taught
as an enigma to be afraid of but not beyond being toyed
with as a hobby. We learn that ghosts are simply bogey-
men who hide in abandoned castles or deplorable sites.

The word “ghost” means a disembodied human
or animal spirit to most people. The essence of
the soul somehow remains behind after the
death of the body. Unwavering believers in real
life ghosts have either felt a presence, witnessed
manipulation of the physical environment,
received a ghostly call via the telephone,
recorded an EVP, or possibly caught a glimpse
of the spirit of a friend or loved one! These are
real life experiences that happen to people
especially while grieving. Sometimes during the
loss of a loved one, we will come in contact with
the departed in some way: a very good reason to consider having compassion toward these
real life ghosts. Could you imagine being rude to your grandma?

Getting back to my night at the old theater, I asked everyone to reconvene after investigating
for two hours to see what happened. People talked openly about their personal experiences
that occurred there, and I shared some of the recordings I made that night in the building.
People were shocked, I think, to hear the voices of real life ghosts asking for my help. I was
especially bothered by one specific request for my assistance:
“Help, Louis.” I think those
who were there that night and heard it also were a bit taken back by it. As one man told me,

“...what you shared with us I felt was equally powerful and was a lesson for me and my wife...
You've changed our approach to ghost hunting from 'make the monkey dance and light up
the K2 (meter)' to something completely different.”
People were able to hear and see
firsthand about real life ghosts.
After I played the messages from ghosts for the audience, it wasn't long
before some of them were wanting me to help the lost spirits. They
wanted the compassion they felt turned into action. I was grateful to see
this happen. After all, this is the same reason why I began working on
helping ghosts. I felt the same way. We quickly formed a spirit circle in
front of the audience and worked to create the light and communicate,
asking the ghosts to move forward into the light and reunite with loved
ones. When each ghost crossed, many of us could feel the energy
change. One, two, then three ghosts moved forward to continue their
life journey. A few moments later, another ghost who was attached to a
lady in the audience also chose to go forward while I spoke with him.

Some of the people in the very front of the theater felt the atmosphere turn from heat to a
cooler, more normal temperature after the ghosts crossed. These experiences left me feeling
brand new inside as the spirits left the place in peace. This is something you can feel tangibly
by the way. Many there that night were touched, inspired and eager to view paranormal
investigation in a new light. They now knew that empathy for ghosts was something that was
important and should be foremost in any ghost investigation. Afterward, many asked me
questions about what they had witnessed that night. These were
real life ghosts and how we

can assist them in real life; this was not a television-inspired "chase and capture evidence-only" night.

Understanding Real Life Ghosts
Just like the people in the theater that night, you may be wondering how I
came to this understanding about ghosts. I can only tell you that I had
what I call a “spiritual awakening” back in 1996. My life changed from
that point on and would never be the same. I thought, at the time, that I
had been visited by God himself; a presence that felt like liquid love
stayed with me for about a week. Through this surprising experience, I
was awakened to an inner voice. Communications from this benevolent
spirit presence were coming to me. Messages were being
communicated with me deep inside, and I “heard  them as a “knowing.”
Eventually I realized that enlightened people were speaking to me from
the other side of the veil. As I listened to their voice, they gently worked
to undo my inner fears created through my former religious experiences.
Eventually, these enlightened spirits would share with me about the real life condition of the true ghosts we encounter.

After some time and experimenting, I came to the conclusion that ghosts have largely been misunderstood. These
lost spirits have been portrayed as something odd we should fear. I wrote the book,
Helping Ghosts: A Guide to
Understanding Lost Spirits
, in order to challenge our societal beliefs about ghosts and haunting. When we overcome
our fears about death and the afterlife, we must have compassion for these
real life ghosts, choosing to see them in
a new way. Ghosts are people who are not separate from us. Ghosts are temporarily lost spirit
s who often ask for our
guidance, our assistance.


Helping Ghosts shares how I communicate with ghosts in order to help them. This is something I want readers to
realize they can do too. The book details my years devoted to study, conducting field experiments, and working to
solve ghost investigation cases. I reveal my insights and techniques used to help suffering, disembodied people
move on in their life-journey. It is my hope that readers will gain a new understanding of real life people in spirit while
possibly learning something more about themselves in the process. I found that as long as we choose to believe that
our loved ones are deceased and somehow separate from us, then we are missing a higher wisdom about our own
connection with everyone and everything in the universe. This is real life.

In the cases of haunting I worked on, I found it best to have compassion for ghosts. Communication is the best way to
help lost spirits move forward to continue their life journey. When we realize that ghosts could be our own loved ones
begging for our help (or even us should we become lost some day), then compassion for unseen spirits becomes
much easier. By choosing to communicate with ghosts in order to assist them, we are helping an often forgotten
portion of humanity; even greater, we are healing a part of ourselves. These are the
real life ghosts I have met.
Louis Charles was born in Canton, Ohio and raised in a small farming community nearby. While
growing up, he always had a fascination with ghosts and spirits.

Through various careers, Louis honed his skills in sales, marketing, speaking, and invention. He
never lost his passion to learn more about ghosts and haunting.

In 2004, he launched the website
Angels & Ghosts in order to better study ghosts and spirits. By
using the submissions he received from around the world, Louis began comparing potential
evidence shared in stories, images, videos, and audio recordings. He also worked with countless
others on field tests, investigations, and experiments in spirit
communication in an attempt to sort
the false away from the real. For the book, Helping Ghosts: A Guide to Understanding Lost
Spirits, Louis conducted investigations with different paranormal groups and psychics to further
test theories about ghosts, while also evaluating metaphysical concepts he found enlightening.
His approach to ghosts and haunting comes from a place of compassion and "no fear."

Today, Louis Charles continues to investigate real life cases of haunting, experimenting with new methods to make contact
with spirits. A husband and father of three, Louis has been searching thirty years for the truth behind who we are in the grand
scheme of things. He thoroughly enjoys contemplating the puzzle of life over a good cup of coffee.
