When I was a teenager, I decided I was going to get rid of my spirit-seeing abilities.
I wanted to be normal. I wanted to sleep at night. And most importantly, I wanted to be able to maintain a sense of control on my environment.
I didn’t want to live in a world where I could be minding my own business, folding the laundry and suddenly end up with three dead people standing behind me and being able to feel them. Looking back, it was during this time, that although I was ignoring my abilities and suppressing my gifts, I was also teaching myself a powerful technique - the technique of being able to turn it off at will.
When out and about in public, if you don’t know the spirits themselves, I’ve found it’s best to keep a safe distance unless approached.
Don’t look them in the eye. If you look at a Spirit directly and make eye contact, they know that you know that they exist and will most likely then take the opportunity to directly approach you. Sometimes, yelling and screaming in excitement and also confusion, that someone can finally see them. This can be intense, but not all that unreasonable, if you consider their circumstances.
If you don't make eye contact, they don't know you can see them.
Don’t get emotionally worked up. This is a technique I learned by the very nature of growing up with a little brother. If you ignore the things they do to you to get your attention, and get under your skin to get you to react . . . eventually, this individual will lose interest and walk away.
If you maintain total neutrality, and just act like someone presented you with a boring embroidery project, not an animated dead guy, most of the time, when they get a non-response from you they will lose interest, walk away and leave you alone.
Probably in search of someone else, who they will try to get to notice them, but least of all away from you.
Use your peripheral vision to scan your environment. My personal belief is that I would rather know if there were invisible people in my environment, than not know. Think about it. Wouldn’t it be really weird, if every morning you had an invisible man watching you shower, and you knew nothing about it? Wouldn’t you rather know if he was there, so you could tell him to go or better, just not go in the places where this invisible man frequented, if possible?
So, if you want to go out somewhere where spirits frequent, which is basically everywhere, but don't want any trouble, scan the new environment clairvoyantly to see if anyone is there.
It doesn’t matter how you talk to spirits, either. They can hear you - if you address them with your physical mouth or with your spiritual mouth - either way, they hear you.
Dead people sometimes forget to have polite manners, as we all might, after not interacting with society for a while.
