I may as well even out the other one. A new voice piped up, low and suggestive. Greedy and Smurfette get behind Glovey as he shakes and trembles. The raveners led them to the stairs, but chittered nervously when Magnus ordered them to head down.
Dame Lillias still haunts Fyvie Castle today. Often she is seen as an ordinary woman and other times her face is seen as skeletal. But in all accounts the colour green is present whether in dress or in the hue that surrounds her. The most interesting thing about these apparitions is that they are female.
But they are also very benign - even in one instance protective. Although encounters have been frightening for many witnesses their stories relate the same thread throughout - that no harm was intended by the spirit.
But more importantly their stories are also very similar to that of any of the white or grey ghosts previously mentioned. Having said this, there is also one marked exception - the protective green spirit of skipness. If we refer to folklore, many of the entities dressed in green are reputed to have supernatural powers very similar to the Skipness ghost. So is this protective lady a human spirit or a manifestation of something much older? In addition, with some of the accounts there does seem to be more interaction.
For example the Fife spirit that interferes with electricity. Dame Drummond changing her facial features in front of eyewitnesses. The protective spirit of Skipness that we have already mentioned. Is this just coincidence that a number of ghosts coloured green are more active and interactive? It is also still a mystery why the UK should have so many green ghosts. Is there something in the environment that would cause apparitions to take on a colour other than white or grey? Blue ghosts have been reported for as long as any other apparition.
They are perhaps not as common as white or grey ghosts, but their stories are no less unnerving. One of the most widely known ghosts is that of the 'blue boy' of Chillingham Castle. This is a horrific story that is backed up by physical evidence. Many people and guests staying in the Pink Room at the castle over the years would report wailing and crying followed by blue flashes of light. Some of the blue lights displayed were described as being like halos above their heads.
When renovation work began around the s in this area, the body of a small boy and that of a man were discovered behind a ten foot thick wall. What is most disturbing is that on forensic examination not only were scratch marks found on the wall but the boys finger bones had been worn down at the top leading to the suggestion that the boy had been trying to scratch his way out of his tomb for a considerable length of time before dying.
Scratch marks were only found at the area where the boy lay, further suggesting that the man had been put in the wall prior to the boy and had died or else his corpse was placed with the boy in the wall at the same time.
The hauntings are reported to have subsided some what since renovation and the subsequent buriel of the child's remains in the churchyard. This points to the hopeful conclusion that this wee boy is finally at peace. Although occasional sightings of a boy either bathed in blue light or dressed in blue are still seen.
Why this child was buried alive and by who has not yet been discovered. This second apparition is a 'Blue Lady' and has been witnessed for a very long time - as far back as the 18th century. She is said to be dressed in a hooded cloak and is alleged to be a nasty character. The legend states that she has a hatred for men. It is believed that she tries to lure them to their death by enticing them to unsafe areas of the castle.
In addition the legend states that this ghost was sexually abused by her father - a Norman Lord - as a result she gave birth to a baby girl.
There are two versions of the story. One is that her father strangled the baby shortly after the birth. The alternative account is that the lady herself, strangled the baby, due to her hatred of the child she had been forced to conceive through abuse. The Blue Lady has been seen wringing her hands in anguish and generally looking distraught. There have also been numerous witness accounts of a baby's crying being heard throughout the castle.
Within this beautiful Tudor-Jacobean mansion we have another Blue Lady ghost. She is the best known of the all ghosts reputed to haunt Temple Newsam. The ghost is said to be that of Mary Ingram - her portrait can still be seen within the mansion and has been there since It is said that she was brutally attacked and robbed one night while travelling home in her carriage. Although she survived the savage assault she was mentally scarred for life. Here we have three different ghosts all perceived as the colour blue.
Is it just co-incidence that each of these people suffered a terrible physical trauma? Blue is generally accepted as one of the healing colours of the human aura.
Could it be that it is the spirits who are emanating this colour due to either requiring healing or in the process of healing? I think it would be fair to say that there is no clear cut reason for an apparition to appear as one colour over another. There is more than likely a variety of reasons why certain ghosts and spirits are reported as being white, green, blue or another colour.
The surrounding environment may play a key role in the way that apparitions manifest and our personal perception of them. Perhaps our minds also have a part to play on both how a spirit will manifest and the way we will witness it. For a long time there has been a theory that suggests that spirit works through the mind via the sub-conscious. If this is the case, then spirit entities will use our own thoughts, images and beliefs to manifest.
This could be the reason why so many negative spirits are seen as being black with red eyes for example, since this tends to be a popular image for evil. Indeed if it is the case that spirit is working through the mind, then any manifestations could tell us just as much about ourselves as it does about the spirit. But could the colour of a ghost or entity also be a natural signal? In nature we have a beautiful and stunning lizard called the chameleon. Depending upon its moods - whether distressed, angry, peaceful - it has the ability to show these emotions through colour.
Could it be that spirits and ghosts have this same capability? Are they trying to communicate their needs through colour rather than words? Research continues everyday into the unknown depths of the paranormal. Perhaps one day we will fully understand the colour of ghosts and in so doing perhaps learn much more about ourselves.

Hi aliciacin12, many thanks for stopping by and for sharing your terrifying story - what an ordeal for you and your family! How on earth have you coped with this for 4 years?
The interference with electricity can be a sign of paranormal activity in some situations but it seems to erupt big time in your home and would certainly suggest that you have negative energy there.
There are many groups - for free - will come to your house to do an investigation for you. You can find them by looking up the internet and see what groups are nearest to you. You can also look for groups who do 'spirit clearance'. I'm not surprised that you didn't feel like typing any more of this harrowing story. Events like these can suck the energy out of you and I've also heard people saying that if they talk about it, then things happen.
Not sure if this is the case with you guys, but there are people out there who can help you. I was searching google for different colored ghost and found this site, very interesting!
We have lived in a haunted house for almost 4 years this Oct. A woman got murdered by her husband in 84 by shotgun. We have experienced some weird things. My husband has been slapped and glasses flew off his face.
My daughters have seen a bloody woman in the bathtub. The cats have been chased down the stairs and around the house. We have seen dark clouds floating up the stairs. My son got physically touched and had a bruise on his hand and the entity shook his bed and talked in a deep demon like voice. Our furnace has been turned all the way up and stereos turned on blasting.
Things thrown at my children. We have heard humming,walking,doors slamming. Dark figures with red have been seen by my husband and children. Our lights seem to flicker when we will have a very active day or night. We have had our house blessed with holy water and actually seen a glowing light float out of the second floor while the house was been cleansed by witnesses. I live in Ohio and would loved for someone to investigate.
I want any evil entities gone but looks like they want to stay. I don't mind some being here but the ones that harm my children must go. There are so much more that has happened here just don't feel like typing. Hi Daisy, sorry for taking so long to reply - family commitments! That's interesting about your experience with the 'orange' coloured ghost. Orange tends to be put in with the 'red' spectrum of orbs and spirit manifestation. In addition many also place the orange colour as a healing energy.
Hope this helps a bit. Lovely to hear from you and glad that you enjoyed the hub. Many thanks for the vote up as well - really appreciated. Many thanks for stopping by and glad you found the hub interesting. I guess ghosts can be quite scary, I guess it depends on how they present themselves. But most are harmless so I'm sure you will sleep very well. A very informative hub. I only know of white ghost or white lady. I hope I can sleep well. I have to say that I try not to think about that wee boy too often - it really gives me nightmares to think about what that poor wee soul must have went through.
I felt so sad for the blue boy buried alive behind the wall, so tragic. Lovely to hear from you and many thanks for the great comment. I'm very much like you - in fact I would class myself as a 'ghost junkie'. The more I research and learn the more fascinating - and I have to say eerie - this subject becomes. Wow, what a great hub on ghosts, orbs and apparitions. I can't get enough of these ghostly stories, I find them so interesting.
You did a super job of researching this captivating subject. I wish I had written the poem! It was written by Henry Wordsworth Longfellow - and I have to say I have loved this poem for many years. I think there is good supportive evidence for the existance of ghosts. The problem is they don't follow our day to day physical rules that helps us to live in this concrete existance and so they are not only rare but difficult to prove.
But that they are there I personally don't have any doubts. In addition most people haven't seen a ghost and those that have it tends to be what is know as 'residual energy' - which means there is no intelligent presence to communicate with, it's just a replay along the lines of the stone tape theory. But many thanks for your very nice comment and for taking the time to stop by. Really appreciated and I'm glad that you enjoyed the hub and the poem!!
Many thanks for stopping by and glad that you enjoyed the hub. I am very honoured that you have placed the link to Ghost Central and I wouldn't dream of removing it - many thanks for that, really appreciated. Have a great day! I have put a link from your hub to my own ghostly hub, "which has become known as Ghost Central". Hopefully you'll get even more traffic this way to all of your hubs.
If you don't like the link, then just please let me know, and I will remove it for you. Many thanks for stopping by and taking the time to leave a comment - much appreciated. I'm very happy that you enjoyed the hub and the photos! What a fantastic hub!!! Very informative and I love the images. Vote up and interesting.
