Ghosts May Be Becoming More Pushy

Ghosts already have a scary appearance, frigid breath, loud noises and levitation in their bag of tricks. Do they really need to knock people over to get their attention? That may be the case as the number of videos of persons appearing to be knocked over by seen or unseen spirits is on the rise.


Charlene Hood of Bridgend, Wales, recently took this video of her one-year-old daughter Lexi playing peek-a-boo with her father, Gareth. It shows Lexi, who her parents describe as being “sturdy on her feet,” appear to be knocked over by an invisible force. They heard her say “naughty boy” as if she had seen who or what pushed her down. Naughty is too kind – what kind of ghost knocks down little girls? Since this happened, the Hoods report hearing creaking sounds in their house.


This security footage from late December 2014 shows Cecilia Carrasco appear to be violently pushed over in her lawyer's office in Santiago, Chile. Cecilia reported feeling invisible hands push her down so hard that she had to be taken to the hospital where she was treated for head injuries. She says she now believes in ghosts and is afraid to leave her house.


This anonymous security camera video from 2013 actually captures the shadowy entity which knocks a man down and drags him down the hall before he is able to escape and run away.

Why would ghosts be making such violent physical contacts with people? Some experts suggest the ghost is taking revenge on something that person did or said to them or because they are spreading a religion or spirituality that offends the ghost. So why would one take revenge on a one-year-old? It is believed by some that ghosts are more likely to attack persons with a weak body or mind. A one-year-old is certainly weaker in a “pick on somebody your own size” sense. Most likely, it’s because the location is haunted by the ghost and it wants everyone out.

What about the pushiness? If the ghosts are the spirits of the dead, maybe they’re just carrying our increasingly violent tendencies into the next life. Could being nicer people stop these pushy ghosts in the future?

Whether you believe in ghosts or question if the videos are real or not, that’s a good way to live.
