Often associated with the soul or spirit of a person that for some reason has not continued on their spiritual evolution and is “earth bound” or trapped close to earth until some activity can be concluded.

Apparitions are often connected with a personal crisis or intense interest in the other person. Sometimes the apparition is coincidental with the person’s death.
