Fragments of Spiritual Knowledge 51

There is no reason why the dead should immediately depart from their earth homes merely because they have departed from their physical bodies, nor do they always do so. In fact, the first spiritual zone, in which the dead are to spend a considerable period of time, is upon this earth plane, and within our atmosphere. Therefore, it is not necessary for the dead, or the physically departed, to immediately depart from their earth homes unless they so desire. But though the dead do not depart, they are not visible to us, and they may remain within our homes for an indefinite period without our knowledge.

The dead do often remain within our homes indefinitely but seldom do we become conscious of their presence except under certain conditions, the nature of which is so complex that to describe these conditions perfectly would require volumes.
