Wrong, Wrong, WRONG...
This is totally wrong. G-d hates anything occult. This type of film entices those who don't believe in HaShem to become interested in an evil supernatural realm. My advice is: "Avoid it like the Plague!!!"

Of course ghosts exist, just maybe not as we imagine
All that is and all that is not is made up of the same energy. A rock or water or a human being exists of the same energy, at a different wavelength. Dying or passing over is just a shift of energy and dimensions. Even this body that we shed at that time goes back to its smallest components and changes its energy. So yes, of course there are ghosts, they are just very different from what we imagine.

I am glad we cannot see ghosts....yet...or most of us cannot.
I hear and see many usual things since becoming observant, but all are still in this physical world.
I wish I could see a ghost and help it and help the world with some Tikkun. It's a lot harder working on oneself and not know what to do....maybe I should just ask a rabbi in Tzfat.
My dreams are crazy enough as it is.

usually seeing is believing
Usually, seeing is believing when it comes to whether or not to be convinced of ghosts and poltergeist - unless it's either a hologram or someone with a white sheet over his head. Unless I'm convinced for sure ghosts are out there, then I should take note if someone is under a curtain pulling the strings.
