What’s Believing Got to Do with It? Getting Rid of Ghosts and Spirits

smudge

I watched a couple of paranormal shows today and couldn’t help but notice (once again) that there are as many techniques for ridding your home of paranormal activity as there are theories on what ghosts and spirits really are.  It appears that all the methods (exorcism, blessing, smudging, telling the spirit to go into the light, telling the spirit is it your home and that they have to leave  … you name it) work at least some of the time.

I’ve been pondering why this would be the case. I have come to the conclusion that any of these methods work if the person believes they will work. Which leads me to even more questions. Does that mean that the ghosts aren’t real and only exist because we believe they do?

I’d love to hear your thoughts on this.
