1. RESIDUAL HAUNTINGS: This is considered the most common type of haunting. Usually what is actually happening is a scene from the past is being replayed, in which the spirits seen are not aware of their surroundings. Its like watching a movie loop over and over again. Many believe that these occurences are a form of energy that has left its imprint in the surrounding atmosphere. These hauntings are caused when a tragic, violent or untimely death occurs. This is not an intelligent haunting; there is no interaction between you and the spirit. Many times these hauntings are said to have sounds, smells, and apparition sightings. These occurances are played out in the same place at usually the same time of day or year indefinitely until the energy is exhausted or diminishes to a low enough level that is undetectable by human perception.
2. INTELLIGENT/TRADITIONAL HAUNTINGS: This type of haunting involves a spirit that is an intelligent or interactive type of spirit. These spirits are actual human spirits that have not crossed over, whether it was because of murder, unfinished business, an accidental death, undying love for someone, or his death happened so quickly that he has not yet realized he is dead. They will try to communicate and are aware of the people around them. These spirits can open and close doors, move objects, run the faucets and interact with you directly because they have the personality, habits, and knowledge of the person that once lived. There is the potential for there to be benevolent or peaceful spirits as well as malevolent or angry spirits. These negative spirits are not evil but are angry. This could be due to their confusion of what is going on around them. They may also have been an angry person in life and carried that over in death.
3. DEMONIC/INHUMAN HAUNTINGS: This type of haunting is similar to a traditional haunting because the entity is intelligent and can be interactive with you. The difference is the entity was never human. They are characterized by a strong, foul scent, similar to sulfur. While most hauntings are accompanies by a feeling of cold, demons often warm the area around them. Most demonic hauntings, the occupants claim to see black mist, black fog or black shadows.These entities are malevolent and extremely violent and are known to harm its victims both physically and emotionally. Demonic possession, in which the body of a human victim is "taken over" by the demon or demons responisible, is also commonly reported. Professional help from a priest, minister or demonogist is needed to banish the entity.
