how to ward off ghosts

Today we're answering a reader's question:
I was told that I was the opposite of a medium. Someone who instead of contacting spirits, repels them. Is that a real thing?
There are things you can do to repel those in Spirit away from you, your home, and your family.
Depending on the type of Spirits you are repelling, it can be considered a good or a bad thing to repel the Spirit World.
When you repel those in Spirit, whether you intend to send ghosts away or earthbound spirits or even deceased loved ones who know you, it’s a blanket effect.
Meaning, if you intended to send away one type of Spirit, you will generally, draw away all types of those in Spirit - unless you set the intention not to.
You can both consciously or unconsciously repel all of those in Spirit, and below are the seven ways how -
Want to only repel the negative and keep the positive Spirits?
The first step in attracting the positive is neutralizing the negative. At the end of this article, we'll discuss how you can attract Spirit, especially positive ones.
We all want to repel negative entities, but when you cultivate the presence of positive energies, it can be a benefit to your life.
So let's begin with how to repel negative Spirits -
How To Repel Spirits
A protection object is any object that you declare will be used for protection.
You can use crystals to repel Spirits, such as black tourmaline, onyx, and many agates. I talk about how you can use gems to neutralize and absorb negative energy in this article.
You can also place various objects, such as crosses or dreamcatchers, around your home to act as a symbolic sign to the Spirit World that the negative energies need to stay out.
Placing positive art, artifacts and symbols around your home that represent light and love will act as protection objects and also serve the double benefit of improving your mood.
The more your mood is lifted up, the less likely you are to attract the type of energies you'd like to avoid. The types of energies that could further lower your own energy field are those most people want to repel.
So, as much as you can call a crystal a protection object, if it boosts your mood, it works to protect you by just shifting the energy you're in.
Meaning, through the use of a mood-boosting object, you can ultimately move out of the space you need protection from.
You can tell those in Spirit to leave by speaking to them directly.
The stronger your voice when you say it, the firmer and more direct your stance, the better the effect will be.
Some people believe that when ghosts or negative Spirits are affecting you, this could simply be a mirror of what's going on in your physical life.
Are those in your physical life pushing up on your boundaries and stepping on the edges of your comfort zone?
Occasionally, the presence of a bossy Spirit or a ghost bothering you could show up as a way to let you know the beefier boundaries are needed in your physical relationships.
Directly telling a Spirit to leave can repel it. Speaking up and being more firm about the boundaries in your physical relationships could get the ghosts in your life to leave, too.
You can clear your space of any residual energy that may attract unwanted spiritual visitors.
Negative emotions, grief, and low energy can attract lower vibrational entities, in this world and the next. I talk about this more in my eBook, Spiritual Security.
When you consciously start to work to clear all this residual energy out, through:
Shifting your mood
Using essential oils
By listening to motivational talks all-day
It can all reset the space.
By space clearing, using sound, scent, or light, you can clear out negative energy and the entities that come with it, making a huge impact on your life.
Residual energy, such as the emotional energy that lingers around after an argument, can attract the types of Spirits you don't want if it does build up.
Thankfully, it is possible to clear it out the negative, so you attract it less.
Think of it this way: if you let the crumbs of the past build-up, it will attract mice, who eventually poop and pee and create more debris.
If you clean up the crumbs, there is less of an attractant to mice and less debris. So not energetically clearing a space, can ultimately create a problem that builds up.
You can also use cultural cures for releasing and repelling Spirits.
You can gather some willow or birch wood, placing figures of the Virgin Mary or Jesus around, or even implement the use of salt around your home.
Look into your cultural heritage or the cultural heritage in the area of which you live and find out what they use for releasing Spirits and try implementing that.
Using cultural cures to help repel negative energy can also help you:
Reconnect you with your ancestry
Boost a sense of self
Increase your own positive feelings about your heritage
When you boost your self-esteem, by connecting with your ancestral power, it can release the type of emotional energy that attracts negative energies.
How You May Be Unconsciously Repelling Spirits
There is a possibility that you are already repelling Spirits away from you naturally.
Here are a few possible reasons as to why you may not be receiving spiritual contact, whether or not you want to.
Your Emotional State
Those in the higher realms of Spirit generally have a higher vibrational energetic state.
If you're experiencing a lower energy state, such as being in grief, depression, or anger, those in the higher realms of the Spirit World cannot get into contact with you. These are the types of energies that improve and boost your mood.
In a lower energy state, lesser energy Spirits may want to get into contact with you, so it could increase your chances of connecting with a negative entity.
This makes it so your fear of the Spirit World increases, and then your aversion to contact also increases, further decreasing your ability to connect.
Shifting your emotional state can change the Spirits you interact with.
If for some reason you have an intense aversion to the Spirit World, whether through fear or disgust, it is likely those in Spirit will ‘back off’ and stay far away from you.
Developing a loving mood about the Spirit World will generally improve positive contact. This is usually easier to do when you know someone in the Spirit World, such as a pet or a family member.
Those in Spirit, while they do want to be noticed, many don’t want to be considered a bother.
So if they can’t touch you with a 10-ft pole, likely, they won’t ‘touch’ you at all.
When you are more open to Spirit contact, you generally do receive more communication.
Think of it this way: the dog who likes human attention, is more likely to receive more of it. Is it not?
If you lack belief in the Spirit World, there is very little reason for them to interact with you at all. In fact, lack of belief, in the Spirit World, as much as fear, is considered a spiritual block.
Especially if they have attempted interaction, and it’s been routinely denied, pushed away or debunked away.
Many of those in Spirit will simply stop wasting their time to communicate with you when rejected often enough.
Spirits generally appear to humans because they have some need for your attention. Whether it’s to deliver you a message or they want to gain your belief in the Spirit World.
If you won’t be swayed, there’s no reason to continue efforts to connect.
So to recap:
Embracing Cultural Cures
Your Emotional State
Can all work together to repel certain types of spiritual energies from contacting you.
If you want to decrease negative spiritual contact, and increase positive spiritual connection, consider:
Releasing your fears of the Spirit World
Welcoming Angelic energy into your life
Working on developing a positive mindset (here are a few ways to get positive from Thrive Global)
All of these things will improve the energy field you operate in and thereby, improve the type of energetic contact you receive.
Repelling Spirits can be helpful when you are working on releasing your fears of the non-physical.
Should you repel all spirits?
I believe it’s important for everyone’s mental and spiritual health that we consciously move away from negative spiritual energy.
The Spirit World and our contact with it can be a gift in our lives, as long as we interact with the positive energies. It can even help us create miracles.
How do you know when you’ve connected with something positive?
You feel good. It’s that simple.
And by using a multi-faceted approach, implementing 3-5 of the tools above, you can reach a peaceful spiritual situation, in your home, your space and your life.
