In most cases we try to communicate with ghosts in the same way that we would talk to a neighbor. Many of us have learned this from Hollywood movies and television shows. Characters speak with ghosts in the same way that you would speak to a friend: with verbal communication. You will often hear phrases like: ‘Give me a sign!’ or ‘Who are you?’ or ‘What do you want from me?’

So why doesn’t this really work as a way to communicate with ghosts? When we verbalize a question to a ghost, we are assuming that they have ears to hear us with and vocal chords to respond with. But ghosts do not have physical bodies. The five senses we utilize do not apply to them. Ghosts speak a different language.

The Universal Language

Emotion is the Universal language. We receive messages through emotion all the time, but we rarely recognize it. The messages we receive are interpreted by the brain and become the thoughts and words that run through our heads.

If a ghost has a developed level of consciousness, it is able to project specific ‘messages’ or emotions to us. If the ghost projects a negative emotion, we may become scared. Alternatively, if the ghost projects a positive emotion, we may feel comforted or happy.

Obviously, that is a very general overview of how ghosts communicate with us. Human emotions range from joy to sadness to anger to envy and all the emotions in between. Emotions can become very complex, so it will take practice to fully understand what messages the ghost is sending you.

Verbal vs. Emotional Communication

Now we understand how ghosts communicate with us. But how do we communicate with a ghost? Often what people try to do is as a question verbally, such as ‘Who are you?’

To communicate this using the language of emotion, the language that can be understood by ghosts, you must take the feeling of the question and broadcast that out. We often broadcast emotions, but seldom do it intentionally. For example, haven’t you ever seen someone and just known that they are a happy, bubbly person? You know because they are broadcasting that emotion and you are picking up on it.

Steps Needed to Form an Emotional Sentence

Sit down and clear your mind. Now think of the question you want to ask the ghost. ‘Who are you? What do you want?’ Focus on the feeling behind the question.

If you have trouble with this practice with more concrete emotions. For example, what does joy feel like? Now what does anticipation feel like? Pay close attention to the feelings in your chest and how the feeling is different for different emotions. Now go back to your question. What is the feeling behind your question?

Once you have the feeling behind your question, exhale and imagine projecting that feeling outward.

Learn to Listen to this New Language

You do not speak to ghosts using verbal language and you don’t listen to them with verbal though if you want to get the full and correct message. So how do you know what the ghost is communicating?

Listen by entering a state of non-thought. You may be thinking, how do I not think? Is that even possible?

Non-thought is not a state of not thinking, it is a mental state of thinking without words. When the constant stream of chatter in your head, what is sometimes called the Babbler, stops you will be able to pay attention to the more subtle forms of communication that you were not even aware of before: the language of emotion.

How to Listen in Non-thought

Sit down in a chair or on the floor. You want to be comfortable, but not so comfortable you fall asleep. Choose a location where you won’t be disturbed for a few minutes. Eventually, you will be able to go into a state of non-thought at will, even with a lot of activity, but for now, we will start slow.

Take several deep breaths. Focus on the breath as you breath in and out. When you breath out imagine all of the negative emotions and worry leaving your body.

Focus on your breathing to keep your mind clear.

Now that your mind is clear, pay attention to what you are feeling around you. It is important to notice the feeling, but try not to analyze it or talk about it in your head.

Don’t be too hard on yourself! If you catch yourself talking in your head, simply take a breath to release the thoughts and begin again.

Interactions with ghosts and entities become possible as you master these new skills. As you develop the ability to enter non-thought at will and to create and project emotion, you will find that the possibilities for communication and learning are limitless.

For many people, the sixth sense is nothing more than something seen on TV or in movies. Actually these are profound abilities that you can develop. This article will explore some of the misconceptions and myths about the sixth sense.

You Are Either Born Psychic or You Aren’t

Alison Dubois on the TV show Medium has premonitions in the form of dreams. But you weren’t born with any abilities like that, so you will never be psychic, right?

But is that really true?

The fact is: everyone was born with sixth sense abilities. The problem is that many of us lost touch with that sensory. Maybe because it was discouraged by your religion, your family or your teachers. Maybe you just got caught up in life and forgot. But remember, while psychic abilities come easily to some people, for many of us the sixth sense is an elusive, forgotten thing. With a little effort, you can reactivate that sensory and experience psychic abilities yourself.

You Only Have One Ability

Perhaps you are skilled in telepathy. Or maybe you have premonitions and visions. Or you are a medium and communicate with entities. People who are psychic only have one ability. Right?

Just like anything else, we all have talents and interests. Things that come easier to us than other things. But if you can master one psychic ability, you can master others. It is just a matter of devoting time and effort to practicing new skills.

The Sixth Sense is All About Talking to Ghosts

This misconception comes from movies such as The Sixth Sense and TV shows like the Ghost Whisperer. Characters see ghosts in human form and have conversations with them as if they were simply speaking to an invisible friend.

But is that really what the sixth sense is all about? No.

First of all, ghosts are … well, ghosts. They don’t have a physical body, vocal chords, ears. So while the sixth sense can allow you to communicate with ghosts or entities, it is not in the way that is portrayed in movies.

Any yes, this sensory can potentially allow you to talk to ghosts, but the sixth sense is so much more than that. Developing the sixth sense is about developing a new sensory or language. It is what will allow you to communicate with the Universe.

For many people, the sixth sense and psychic abilities feel like they are just out of reach. But everyone is capable of developing this sensory with a little time and effort.
