Echo Bodine, famous for her many books about psychic phenomena and her appearances on television shows such as The Other Side and Sightings, claims that she never wanted to find ghosts. The problem was that they kept finding her.
In this small, fast-paced book, Bodine explains how she came into her own as a "ghostbuster" and provides many interesting factoids about dealing effectively with ghosts.
A ghost, according to Bodine, is a soul whose physical body has died but who cannot, for some reason, release his or her hold on earthly things and cross over into the light and the wondrous world that lies beyond.
A spirit, on the other hand, is a soul that has crossed over successfully but who has come back to visit or to watch over their loved ones. Spirits may also appear to help the confused soul of a deceased loved one find the light.
