How To Get Rid Of Unwanted Spirits In Your Home
by Amanda Linette Meder
Have you ever had a feeling something was hovering around you? Felt tired, hungry and lethargic for no reason? Had a difficult time getting a good night’s rest?
If so, then you could have a spirit hanging around.
And today someone emailed my office with a feeling that they were either:
A. Being haunted
B. Had an attachment
So I wanted to cover what you can do about either in today's post.
And while both situations are pretty similar, and it’s pretty easy to wind up with a spirit in your home (all they have to do is walk in) or near your body, there are a few key differences between each circumstance and here are a few posts to help you figure that out which you have - a spirit in your home, or a spirit attached to you.
18 Signs And Symptoms Of A Spirit Attachment (Possession) (external site)
Think of it as an escalation of a situation. In one situation (having the spirit in the home), you could easily move to another, given the right conditions.
Let's think of it in terms of deer ticks.
Think of the difference between having ticks in your yard and actually having a tick on you. Given the right set of circumstances, you could see how easily one could come home with Ticks.
But just like not all bugs in your yard are poisonous or parasitic, not all spirits are either. Most spirits are helpful and most contribute to the overall spiritual ecosystem in a mutually beneficial way.
This is true in nature and it is also true in the Spirit World.
Some spirits are helpful ancestors, some are protector guides, and some come in to help you out, heal the land or assist on the earth with certain issues, for a certain amount of time.
Because of this, it would be a mistake to get rid of everybody completely and try to fumigate the place.
It would be like fumigating an entire crop of all insects, including the good guys - the aphids and the spiders, those that naturally help combat the harmful guys. You don’t want to do that.
But you do want to be aware of what’s out there, what is possible, and what you can do in terms of prevention.
But it's important to remember that if you are gonna be gallivanting in the forest all day (existing in the same space as Spirits) at some point, it’s going to happen. You're going to come into contact with a Tick. Doesn’t matter how much Tick spray you used, what the formulation, or when you put it on. Some spirit, at some point, is gonna stick with you and hang around from somewhere else.
There's plenty you can do to release this type of spirit and if you're serious about it, my first call to action is for you to get yourself the book, Spirit Releasement Manual, it's the textbook for this sort of thing.
But if you're looking for a cheaper option, this is also something my sister covers in her posts How To Deal With Freeloader Spirits: Part One and Part Two where she describes what you can do to heal the issue.
Now that that’s covered, let me share something:
I actually enjoy having spirits in my home these days, and they certainly don't bother me the way they used to.
There was once a time where the thought of having them around horrified me, but now, it's pretty much par for the course and I especially enjoy the kind that lived on the land once before because help me remember to upkeep with basic household tasks. They nudge me to lock the doors at night, blow out candles I forgot upstairs before bed, and remind me of important things, like rolling up the car windows when it’s going to rain.
These types of spirits are called Ancestral Spirits or Land Spirits and I talk about them in my eGuide How-To: Space Clearings, as those that you can’t really remove from a property (and why would you want to).
I consider Ancestral Spirits like the Spiders or the Aphids of the landscape. Having them around helps protect me and my home from other types of insects.
But unless you welcome them in (here’s a post on how), they’ll pretend they aren’t there. They'll make themselves not appear to you and otherwise, hang out in the corners and shadows, which can make them ~ feel ~ dangerous even when they aren’t. They're just trying to respect your space.
I like to think of mine as a house mom. She reminds me of all the things my mom would if she lived with me, and I appreciate her for that.
Anyway, if you want to dig deeper into this issue or get rid of your spirit for good, then I suggest:
- Checking out my sister’s seminar on Kicking the Sidekick on Spiritual Attachments
- Check out this free post on how to cross someone over or get the whole eBook on the process. Crossing over a spirit can help eliminate most haunting related issues, because most haunting issues are caused by earthbound spirits.
- Learn more about setting boundaries with spirits in your home, starting with this post.
And as James Van Praagh says, there are unevolved, frustrated or angry spirits – but they are not bent on harming you, at least most of them aren't, so . . . you can relax.
