There are more than one way in which we with the gifts of sight are able to view and connect with apparitions.
Some of us see energy forces that materialize around or directly in front of our eyes, some of us see the energy within our minds eye through visions, some of us see energy force during our dream state, some may only be able to hear an apparition’s messages, and some are just able to view and communicate with apparitions in all of the above circumstances.
I’m one who has experienced all of the above and, of course, if or when we don’t see them we know and feel when they are around us and we envelop and interpret the sensation which comes along with the encounters of presence.
I can even at times “smell” when an apparition or force is within the midst or afar.
Energy and vibration is the essence to all life force.
