Those times the hair on the back of our neck or arms mysteriously stands on end, we ask, “why?” It may be 90 degrees when this happens. Perhaps you’re calm, relaxed and now your hairs are at attention… What’s up with that? Well, it could be a ghost! But why?!

We are composed of energy. Just hold your hands 1-2 inches apart and feel it. Our spirit is energy, therefore, so is a ghost. Whether you like it or not, they’re out there. Sometimes we feel them. The energetic nature can cause electrical disturbances, enough to interfere with electronics, or just make your hair stand up.

Okay, so there is no “real” scientific evidence a ghost is causing this or is even real… But, as Xenophilius Lovegood in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows so wisely states, “Prove that it is not.” (Rowling, HPDH, 2007, p 411.) There are too many personal experiences which defy scientific explanation for us not to suspect the validity of the spirit world.

It is ironic so many paranormal experiences seem to begin with one’s hair attempting to escape. I would hedge my bets ghosts are partially responsible for much of this phenomena.

Just sayin’…
