The Difference Between Ghosts and Spirits

Yes, there is a difference between Ghosts and Spirits. GHOSTS are
earthbound spirits that haunt locations or people. They may or may not
know they are dead. Some are intelligent spirits that interact with
the living. Some like to scare people on purpose. Others are just
misunderstood. Some Ghosts are "residual" and don't even know we are
their, it's like a record playing over and over again, which could
also just be their residual Energy from past events. Some ghosts don't
even know they are dead and will hang on to a place. Others hang on
because they have committed suicide and feel guilty and are afraid of
going to hell. Other's have other reasons for hanging on and haunting
an area: They may have cursed a person or place, and pledged to haunt
it, they may be looking for a lost lover, they may be trapped in a
spot because they may have had a violent death, they may have murdered
someone, they may feel guilty about something else and are afraid to
cross over.
SPIRITS that are not earthbound have crossed over, but are not ghosts.
They are not trapped in any spot. They can visit us in dreams or while
we are conscious, and we can see apparitions of them and communicate
with them like a ghost. Their appearance is different than a ghost. A
Spirit that has crossed over to the light will be surrounded by light,
look younger and healthier and vibrant, where as an earthbound Ghost
will look dark like a shadow, or may even still show the scars of how
they died. Also, they walk on a different plane of existence.
Spirits float, because they are not earthbound. Ghosts that are
earthbound, can look like people and their feet are at the same level
as the ground...and don't necessarily float. The other main
difference, earthbound ghosts are restless spirits, unsettled, and
unhappy, tormented, or torn between one place and another and
unsatisfied with themselves. Spirits that have crossed over to the
Light, are full of love and light and are complete in themselves.
Those are the main differences between Ghosts and Spirits.

I never knew the difference between ghosts and spirits. I used the term interchangeably. It was very interesting to learn that they are not the same.
