Another interesting phenomena in the spirit world is the appearance of apparitions. Many individuals believe they have had face-to-face encounters with what are known as "full-bodied apparitions." These apparitions appear extremely life-like and represent lost loved ones. However, according to Oquirrh Mountain Paranormal Investigations, apparitions appearing in full form are extremely rare.
