In the vast majority of poltergeist cases, the entity is an earthbound human spirit, and the PK phenomena are not particularly violent. Spiritualists point out that most of the human spirits attracted to an adolescent’s psycho-sexual energy are essentially childlike themselves with short attention spans.
Furthermore, children are constantly maturing and changing. Their attention shifts over time and they gain more control over their primitive urges as well as their ability to project their psychic energy. That’s why parapsychologists can say with confidence that the poltergeist disturbances will go away by themselves after a few weeks. If no one is paying attention to their antics, then both the child and his or her ghosts get bored and stop the paranormal antics.
Active pubescent children are brimming with excess psycho-sexual energy as well as natural exuberance. A few are naturally psychic with an especially bright aura. Pubescent children are most often the living “agents” that make it possible for spirits to manifest in our three-dimensional world. Most children can maintain their high energy level, without leakage of their natural psycho-sexual energy, but some may have sustained damage to their auras (their outer spiritual “skin”) due to any number of circumstances in their lives. The excess psychic energy released into the spiritual environment as a result attracts mischievous, and sometimes evil earthbound spirits who use it to manifest in various, often violent, ways.
The entry of a psychically strong child, adolescent or even a strongly psychic adult onto a property that was previously haunted can strengthen an apparently dormant entity and allow phenomena to occur suddenly. This can happen even in places in which no apparition has previously been noticed simply because there was not enough available energy to allow paranormal effects to manifest in noticeable ways prior to the arrival of the agent.
These situations may appear to be poltergeist hauntings because the disturbances happen when a child or adolescent is on the property, however since they are associated with an entity that is bound to the property rather than to the living agent, the phenomena probably won’t fade away within a few months like an “ordinary” poltergeist. This is because the spirit causing the disturbances is not the typical childlike poltergeist-type. It’s a ghost that has probably been on the property for years and is likely receiving its energy from a newly present human source.
In poltergeist hauntings caused by human spirits, obsession or possession of the agent him/herself is rare because a healthy child has healthy auric defenses. Human spirits rarely have a permanent influence on the adolescent agent’s thoughts or behavior unless the child’s aura is seriously impaired because of child abuse. If this is the case, a lifelong spiritual infection can take root.
