What does the Church think about seeing dead people? A trustworthy person lately told me that she’s seen dead people several times, especially her grandfather sitting around in the house he used to live in, but once also a girl from the school she teaches in who died in the tsunami, she didn’t appear herself but a light came that illuminated the wall and she let her know she’s happy. The grandfather on the other hand seems to hang around at his old place like a ghost. This person came to me asking if this was of good or evil and what she should think about it. She’s a believing and praying person so no spiritist or anything like that. But she also mentioned something about sometimes being able to put thoughts into ppl’s minds (especially her husband and daughter’s) or alleviate their stress or something by just focusing mentally…once she even had a bilocation experience when she was focusing and wanting to be somewhere else.
Does anyone have experience with such phenomena? Are they dangerous or can they be from God? Also, how can ghosts wander around apparently without being in hell, heaven or purgatory…??
Thanks for your help.
