Now, we know that when celebrities comment on things other than acting, they run the risk of being told that they are wack-a-doos or ‘out of their element.’
This is especially true when celebrities talk about stuff like vaccinations (sigh), healing crystals (looking at you, Gwyneth) and, yes, ghosts.
But hey, Kristen Stewart’s idea of energetic ‘stains’ on a room or space is intriguing — and one that we can’t entirely shake off.
That’s because we’ve all been there before, sitting in a space that makes us feel weird. It could be that the people in a given space before were hurt or traumatized — and that some of that dark energy was leftover as residue. Or it could be that ghosts are actually people who do come back — consciously or not — or who could never leave.
Our hair stands on end. Our guts tell us to get out, that something is off. Could that be a ghost or an energetic stain? Who really knows.
But one thing is true: Celebrity ghost stories are fascinating and we want to hear more of them.
It’s pretty cool to hear Kristen Stewart, probably one of the ‘coolest’ chicks out there right now, talking about being scared out of her pants by a ghost in a spooky, small-town apartment. Because, seriously, that’s such an unnerving feeling.
According to paranormal experts, we’ve been taught to ignore our sixth sense: “If you felt someone walk in a room, you turn around and don’t see anyone…but in reality someone did walk in the room and because your eyes didn’t see it, you dismissed it.”
In short, just because you didn’t see it with your eyes doesn’t mean it’s not there. There must be something to that gut feeling we ALL have had.
Okay, but for real: What is a ghost? A feeling? An actual entity?
Lots of people believe in ghosts. In fact, a 2013 Harris poll showed that 45 percent of people believe in ghosts, with nearly 30 percent of those being visited by one.
There are lots of scientific explanations — or attempt at explanations — around what we consider ‘ghosts’ to be.
For one, there’s electromagnetic energy, which, according to Mental Floss, causes people “to feel as if there is a ‘presence’ in the room with them by causing unusual activity patterns in the brain’s temporal lobes.”
Other theories? Mold, carbon monoxide, and simply the desire for ghosts to be real.
What do you believe? Are you here for you K Stew’s beliefs — and her no-nonsense approach to ghostly activity?
