So. Funny things are happening in your house and you're not sure what's causing them. You hear tapping or knocking on the walls. The doorbell rings with no one on the doorstep. The television goes on and off all by itself. You feel a cold spot in the room but there isn't a draft or an open window nearby. Books are thrown off your shelves. You have a feeling that someone is sitting on your couch. Worst of all, cards spontaneously leap out of the card catalog at your library!
Actually, except for the card catalog episode, all of the signs point to the possibility you might be sharing your house with a ghost. According to Echo Bodine, author of Relax, it's Only a Ghost and professional ghostbuster, not all ghosts are evil spirits to be feared. Rather most are simply stuck on the earthbound side of the living, not yet able to move to "the other side." Bodine specializes in de-ghosting spaces, and offers a slew of personally witnessed facts about ghosts. Hint: if you don't want to become a ghost yourself, make amends with friends and family now so you won't be afraid of facing them in the next world.
