What is a Residual Haunting

A residual haunting is really not as much of a “haunting” of a spirit as it is a recording of past energy. It is believed, that in a location where a person released a large amount of energy, or heightened emotions were experienced, that the energy imbeds itself. As a result of energy left behind, living individuals may get to experience seeing a type of “recording” of these events. In a residual haunting, the spirit does not interact or acknowledge that there is anyone present and will seem oblivious to anything that is occurring around it. Noises without a visual scene, such as footsteps may occur. Some people are more sensitive to this type of haunting and they may occur in older buildings or homes.
