Dear Erin: Are Ghosts Real? 

Inquiring Minds Want to Know...

DEAR ERIN,

Are ghosts real?

Ravi

(age 6)

Hi Ravi,

Thanks for being part of the Ghost Dog Diaries inaugural column!

I'm excited to tell you that ghosts are real. But when I talk about ghosts, I don't mean those scary faces that suddenly scream at you when you're in minding your own business, watching a YouTube video. I'm talking about people who once were alive like you and me, but no longer have physical bodies.

Einstein proved that everything is energy. Energy can be divided into two kinds: finite energy (energy that is limited) and infinite energy (energy that's unlimited). Everything that makes up our bodies (our skin...our hair...this booger in my nose...yikes!) is made up of finite energy.

So when we die, all it means is that our bodies are limited and we don't use them anymore. But our souls, our spirits—the thing inside that makes you Ravi and me Erin—are made up of infinite energy that lives on and on, even after our bodies go away.

Quantum Physicists are looking at the possibility that when we die, our infinite energy just crosses into another dimension. So when my little dog PJ passed away and three days later I was able to see her energy on the infrared cameras at The Old Sorrel-Weed House, it wasn't so much that I was seeing a ghost... but a visitor from another dimension. How cool is that?!

(It still doesn't explain how she managed to write my name in the beer, but that's another story...)

Thank you for your question, Ravi, and thanks to everyone who's reading this answer with an open mind and heart.

I love y'all. Mwah!

Your pal, Erin

The Ghost Dog Diaries is a weekly advice column, inspired by the late PJ Cuddlesworth. Three hours after PJ's passing, Erin held an Irish Wake in her honor. That's when her name appeared in her beer. (Misspelled, of course. Ghost Dogs aren't equipped with Autocorrect.) Erin and PJ have been giving psychic readings and helping people connect with their loved ones who have passed ever since.

    I’m not sure if Robyn’s star burned so brightly because she knew that life was short, or if things just worked out that way. Regardless, she taught us by example to juice every possible moment of magical elixir out of life.

  • Gay Marriage: One step forward, two steps back

    Sure, one could argue that the same thing could be true for straight people, but when you're gay and you don't have the support of your loved ones, the words "I told you so," take on a whole new meaning.

  • He’d rather be a player than be gay

    Who you date is irrelevant. People's opinions about your sexuality are irrelevant. Whether they are pointing fingers in judgment or waving flags in show of support, what they have to say is irrelevant.
