A residual haunting is the most commonly reported type of haunt. It appears to be a recorded event that replays itself over and over again without any conscious thought or action behind it. The energy seems to be trapped in a never-ending time loop. The movie "Groundhog Day" comes to mind as an example.
Residual haunts seem to happen in the same place and often at the same time. If you happen to come across one of these types of haunts it should be reassuring to understand that it cannot harm you. Although this kind of paranormal activity can be quite startling when you experience it, if you remember that it is only a form of energy and not a spirit or entity, you can learn to live with it.
