Today we're answering a reader 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?
Yes - there are things you can do to repel those in Spirit away from you, your home and your family.
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 those in Spirit, and this is how.
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.
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 they need to stay out.
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.
You can clear your space of any residual energy that may attract unwanted spiritual visitors. Residual energy, such as the emotional energy that lingers around after an argument, can attract the wrong types of Spirits if it builds up.
You can use cultural cures for releasing and repelling spirits, such as gathering some willow or birch wood, placing figures of Virgin Mary or Jesus around, or even implementing the use of salt around your home.
Look into your cultural heritage or the cultural heritage in the area of which you live - find out what they use for releasing Spirits - and implement that.
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 Spirit generally have a higher vibrational energetic state. If for some reason, you are experiencing a lower energy state - such as being in grief, depression or anger - it is possible the Spirit World cannot get into contact with you.
It is also possible that during this time, lower energy Spirits (the kind you likely don’t want to attract) may want to get into contact with you, so simply make sure you maintain awareness of your environment.
If for some reason you have an intense aversion to the Spirit World, whether through fear, disgust or simply, the thought of it gives you the chills, it is likely those in Spirit will ‘back off’ and stay far away from you.
Those in Spirit, while they do want to be noticed, many don’t want to be considered a bother and if they can’t touch you with a 10-ft pole, it’s likely they won’t ‘touch’ you at all.
If you lack belief in the Spirit World, there is very little reason for them to interact with you at all. Especially if they have attempted interaction, and it’s been routinely denied, pushed away as not real, or debunked away, many of those in Spirit will simply stop wasting their time to communicate with you.
Spirits generally appear to humans because they have some need for your attention - whether it’s to deliver you a message, gain your belief in the Spirit World, or simply cause a rouse. If you won’t be swayed, there’s no reason to continue efforts to connect.
These are just a few things you can do - intentionally or unintentionally - to repel those in the Spirit World.
