OPINION: Why Dead People Open Their Eyes When They Are Dead Maybe it’s because they aren’t really dead. Why would a non-living thing still have its eyes open? These people are still in denial of actually being deceased. They are actually refusing their fate and still want to live; they are still processing what has occurred to them. Most have claimed that these dead people can still see and hear everything or even move a little bit if observed carefully. Some researchers say that the first to see them with their eyes open will be haunted by the dead person until, eventually, their soul finds rest, but when it comes to children, they usually haunt the person they loved the most because they want to be with them longer. So, ghosts are actually real. Only those who have seen the eyes of a deceased person open will see their ghosts. Some believe that if you have a pure spirit and you look through a dead person’s eyes you are able to see your future through them even if the deceased is no one you knew of. Ages ago people used to pluck out the eyes of people who die with their eyes open to rid of evil spirits that lurk around villages, but if the person was unclean during their time on Earth, they will haunt the village and bad things will happen among the villagers. People will die mysteriously some would disappear and come back years later looking the same, others become permanently disabled and some will even start to perform evil doings themselves. Only certain people would be able o tell if one was pure or impure at heart. Also, if a bird sees a dead person with its eyes open, the person will possess the bird and will want to be near the loved ones of that particular person.
