How to get a spirit to leave your home

Wondering how to get a spirit to leave your home? Have a Spirit you'd like to leave you alone? In this article, we'll discuss how to do just this -
The most frequently asked question I used to receive from friends, family, clients is this:
"Amanda, can I ask you something? So I have this bizarre thing that has been happening when I wake up in the middle of the night, and I don't know what it is..."
What follows is a description of something usually related to a weird feeling, noise, smell, thing that is moving, or series of occurrences. Generally within the house. Generally at or around bedtime or just-waking-up time. And usually, the answer is the same:
"No big deal, just a Spirit that's in your house."
Before you freak out, take one big deep breath.
Most of the time, when someone has a Spirit in their home, it's probably someone they know.
Not a demon. Not a ghost. Not a poltergeist. Not something trying to destroy your life.
Nine times out of ten, when someone asks me to look into this for them - it's a grandmother, a father, a great aunt, an ex-wife's mother, a friend from high school, a piano teacher, your brother.
Generally, once people learn that this Spirit is someone they know, they're typically wondering how they can get them to visit more often.
Here are a few articles to look into to see if the Spirit maybe someone you know:
If you are feeling this Spirit visit maybe something less friendly and perhaps not a Spirit you know, let's talk about that -
Spirit Strangers In Your House
Yes, it's possible!
Imagine your house is like a highway diner.
You own and live in this diner, and it's always open, 24-hours a day, and on the side of the highway.
Now imagine that while yes, you own a restaurant, you really would prefer that your family just live there and you don't serve anyone else and really, even though the lights are on and it's on the side of the highway - you're closed. Closed for business.
Technically, you're still open, but only for people you know, like the people who live there. Your family.
Did you put a closed sign on the front door of the diner?
Do you have any emblems outside your home that signify the types of spirits welcome there? In some cultures, these emblems are called sigils and they are effective I’ve found.
When people welcome Light, Loving Spirits into their home, they'll often put up art, crystals, and other friendly statues that signify this.
It's possible to send mixed messages to the Spirit World and accidentally send signs that any type of Spirit is welcome.
How Spirits Can Get Confused And Welcome Themselves In
If you spend a lot of time watching dark television shows, melodramas about dark spirituality, or even have dark spiritual art in your home, these can attract a specific type of spiritual energy that most people would not find themselves comfortable with.
Do potential customers of your diner know that while the lights are all on, and there are people there - that it's a private diner?
Sometimes in densely populated areas, Spirit people will just walk right into a home and make themselves comfortable when no one is paying attention.
To keep only friendly Spirits in, you do have to mind your spiritual space by regularly clearing the energy of your home and being aware when something strange is happening.
The point is, the world of Spirit and the world of Human are side-by-side.
Regardless of where your house is, you may live right next to the bustling highway of Spirit and vice versa. If you don't want visitors, you do let the Spirit world know that you aren't open for business.
You can do this by verbally setting boundaries, you can also do this by sending cues to the Spirit World by the type of art you have in your home and the type of media you take in.
How to set your spirit boundaries
Even if you were unconsciously watching dark television just to relate to some of the ideas in the show, you still have the power to get a Spirit to leave you alone.
For the most part, you don't need another medium, or any special ceremony to remove a Spirit from your house. You only need two things.
1. To want the Spirits to leave.
2. The authority to tell them to go.
To get a Spirit to leave, you have to really want them to leave
The reason I say this first one is that a lot of people who ask about Spirits in their home don't usually want them gone.
For some reason or another, they like the idea of having a Spirit around. Perhaps it is exciting, maybe they wish to brag about it, maybe it makes life more interesting.
Perhaps they actually like this Spirit and enjoy the visits - if it is someone they know, that's reasonable to assume.
Lots of people find comfort in visits from their loved ones.
So to tell a Spirit to leave, you actually have to mean it.
If you want to tell a Spirit to leave, and don't mean it, they'll be able to 'tell' you weren't serious, and stay.
Plus, you'll wonder where they went, and that wondering will bring them back. It's kind of like wondering about an ex-boyfriend, only to have him send you a text message two days later.
Whenever we send energy cords of thought out into the Universe, they are usually received by someone.
After that -
Don't phrase your request as a question
Because then, they get to choose whether or not they actually go.
If you ask a Spirit, "Can you please leave my family and me alone?" Sure, they might, if they are a polite, well-mannered person, and respect your boundaries.
What if these Spirits aren't well-mannered? They might think to themselves, "Yes, I could, but I'm not going to." So don't even give them a choice.
Tell the Spirit, with power in your voice to go.
Say it firmly, out loud. You may even choose to escort this Spirit to the door - either physically or in your imagination. Do it firmly and without question. Some people like to leave a tea light by the front door to help them see through the confusion and get out.
If the Spirit in your home is an Earthbound, they may have wandered in to be crossed over. Here's an article that goes over how to start crossing over a Spirit who may be contacting you in your visions.
Did you try all this already and it hasn't worked?
First, do you own/live in this house primarily? Is it your space?
If not, you may not have the authority to tell this Spirit to leave.
In that case, you can tell this person to leave *you* alone explicitly, but this Spirit may stick around until the owners of the space also agree that this Spirit is unwelcome.
Examples of this would be if you live with your parents, moved in with a significant other, or live with someone else who actually owns or has their name on the property. It happens in motels.
In all these cases, without the permission of the leading property resident or owner, you may not have the ability to tell anyone to leave and you may just be stuck with them until you leave.
Second, are you the only resident?
All people that live in the house need to agree that this Spirit is unwelcome, together as one.
Say you do the activities above and then suddenly, sometime between now and then, your son realized he actually misses all those visitors. He had imaginary friends and really liked those friends.
Where did they go, he wonders, thus sending the request out for them to return.
The point is - all parties must agree on which Spirits can visit and which can't - if any at all.
This is why, in many ghost shows, when there is a haunting, the entire family is interviewed and part of the ceremony in which the Spirit is told they are not welcome. All those who live in the space must agree the 'portal' is closed.
So, what do you do if there is a Spirit in your house?
First, it's usually someone you know. Try identifying them using the articles above.
If it's not and you want them to leave, be very firm. Tell them to go with authority.
You may need to cross them over to get them to leave.
If you aren't comfortable communicating with the Spirit, you can send non-verbal cues that you want this type of energy to leave by changing up the art in your house, the type of media you watch, and the types of articles you read.
I’ve gotten caught up with lower energies helping clients and investigating situations I should’ve probably left alone.
Even experienced mediums experience lose boundaries and intrusions from time to time. I’ve had slip-ups and so have others. It’s like falling back into old habits.
If this happens, not to worry, just get back to your habit of focusing on high vibrations only.
