Ghosts typically tend to stay where it is familiar to them such as the house they owned when they were alive or a family member’s home. Sometimes they keep close to a particular place that they really liked or someplace that attracts them. Other times they hang out at the cemetery they were buried at, although rare or haunt the streets, etc. The majority of ghosts are not bound to any particular place or thing and if that is where they stay all of the time, it is of their own free will or from the lack of clarity to realize more than the state of consciousness they are aware of and the level of the energy they are residing in. Remember that a ghost retains information from their last life and does not move on to another realm as they choose to stay attached to the Earth planes. Of course there are exceptions to this where an Earth spirit could be bound either unwillingly or by an Earthly tie.
When a house is haunted by a ghost, this entity can follow you all over the house, go out for a ride in your car with you, go with you to visit a family member or friend, hang out at the bar with you, jump in on the fun at a dance and party night, watch you sleep, read your diary or just bum around the house. They usually have free rein to roam. Most ghosts – just like us, want privacy or to at least feel that they have privacy so they may choose an empty bedroom or a place that is not used much such as an attic or a basement. They won’t stick exclusively to the area they choose as their sanctuary. They will roam a lot in the middle of the night when you are sleeping because they won’t have to worry about you.

There are ghosts that will only stay in one part of the house and not roam at all anywhere else. They seem to stay in that area exclusively and never stray from it – even if you have lived in the house for 17 years – as I did, and still, they stick like glue to one place. One of my ghosts stayed only on my staircase. In all of those years, the ghost to whom we refer to as ‘the boy on the stairs’ never left the stairs.
When you encounter a ghost like this, the likely scenario is that their world, or the dwelling they are haunting is located in a different realm altogether. When their world intersects with ours, this is when you see them. This is what is known as a dimensional overlap. The ghost will be in their own realm but it is unlike a ghost that is attached to the Earth plane. Even though a ghost on the Earth plane is in its own realm – it is a result of them not moving on to where they are supposed to go upon death. The difference is that a ghost you see from a dimensional overlap isn’t usually a ghost at all. They are usually live beings living in their own world, their own dimension and plane of existence. There is a brief moment in time where time and space overlap. If the frequency and vibration are just right – a small gap appears. This happens more than you might think but to witness it is another thing. It is very rare to actually witness a being from a dimensional overlap. You might see an overlap but it usually occurs so quickly you will never know. It may not look like anything at all or perhaps you may think you saw something quickly but then just shrugged it off – kind of like when you see the shadow out of the corner of your eye – only it is right in front of you and may appear to look like a haze or a distortion. Even more rare would be the opportunity to see a being from that overlap but it has been done many times. What is even more amazing is when you and the being from that other world see each other for that amazing once in a lifetime moment or manage to capture that rare photograph.

A ‘ghost’ that strictly remains in one area of the house or building could very likely be from an area where two worlds meet, intersect briefly, and open. This would be one of those rare areas that have several resonating characteristics in order for this to continually occur. This could occur because of the rights conditions being present or with the right conditions combined with the energy of the entity involved. This entity – or who you view as a ghost – may have one or more contributing factors that allows the gap in time/space to overlap and/or open.
The picture below shows an example of a dimensional overlap.

Geomagnetic activity seems to be another contributing factor for the phenomenon of dimensional overlap as well as accounting for the frequency and force of ghostly activity. Things such as the gravitational influence of the new and full moons – which directly affect geomagnetic vitality, and solar flares and storms – tend to give rise to dimensional shifts which can lead to overlaps.
A lot of pictures that show dimensional overlaps look like blurry out of focus pictures that may have been exposed too long or that have one or more photographic quirks. Many of them appear to look like a double exposure but they are not.
Some of the entities that you may be lucky enough to observe will let you know that they are observing you as well. I remember many years ago I saw a photograph where two people were on a tour of a very old building and they got a picture of a dimensional overlap and a young man that came through. You could see from the look on the young man’s face that he was very surprised to see the girls. This overlap allowed the young man to see into our world and briefly see the two ladies that took the picture, however, the ladies didn’t see the young man until they had the picture developed.
The entity – or young teenage boy that I had on my steps knew we were there and we were aware of him as well but only at certain times would this overlap occur. The overlap was situated in a location where several criteria was present more than usual in order for this to happen several times a year. He never left the stairway – not one time in 17 years. That is where the dimension opened and the only place he could witness our world. There was interaction between him and our family members as well as a neighbor that came over to assist my son in bringing a new piece of furniture upstairs. The boy was encountered at the top of the steps and our neighbor jumped over the piece of furniture and ran out of the house.

Dimensional overlaps are becoming more frequent than they have ever been yet they are still hard to come across. Your camera has a better chance of finding them than you do but that doesn’t mean that you won’t ever come across them. They can appear at anytime, anywhere – just like portals can.
Your world can open up to another dimension and you may be the one that is being observed and you will probably never know it.
Have you experienced a dimensional overlap or feel you may have a photo or video of one? We would love to hear your story and see your pictures. Send you information to the email below.
