I really don't know what to say, except encouraging some caution. My own experiences have been very few, and have been in keeping with my faith system (Christian). I can't really go into it much more without using religious rhetoric. I definitely believe in a spiritual realm, but am uncertain where I stand on "ghosts", as my encounters were of a different nature, and I feel confident In describing the beings in encountered by a different name. (I do have Christian friends who have said they have experience with ghosts or spirits though...still not entirely sure what to make of that.)
I want to be respectful what your own beliefs may be. That said, it's not really something I would want to encounter without my faith, as that was my source of confidence in the situation. I do, however, respect the choice of bringing your friend John in, and it's obvious that he is tuned in to whatever is going on.
I'm wishing you all the best in this.
