Since I was around 5 years of age, I have experienced Spiritual Beings. For the first part of my Life, I was unable to control my gifts and I was un-aware of how to protect myself. My parents unwittingly bought haunted houses, which meant that I had some hair-raising nights growing up.
But, it wasn’t all bad. As you would know, everything in Life is an energy exchange. With each ghostly visitation, they would take some of my energy and I would take some of theirs. I just didn’t realise it at the time, but the ghosts were teaching me about themselves. I grew up knowing more and more about how the ghost ticks. What a ghost is and eventually, how to rid myself of their presence. I’ve become very pragmatic about them, where as when I was a little girl I’d be scared, now I just think, ‘so what?! You’re a dead guy.’ I realise that I am the one with the power, because I am the one who is Living. I have the occupation of the living body, the vessel for physical Life. So, you may hear me talk about ghosts or Earthbounds in a very matter of fact way. Just know that it is my past experiences that have de-mystified them for me and though I still have a healthy respect, I am aware they are just people like you and me, they just don’t occupy a body anymore.
I have had, in my time as a professional Reader, some clients who have felt a great deal of sympathy for the Earthbound Ghostie and have felt they need to ask them to come home with them or to befriend them. I feel it is important to recognise a few home truths about ghosts, so that those of us, who do feel compassionate, don’t find our good intentions end up creating our own private hell. Human Nature is mostly good. That is what my idealistic mind tells me. It is the same for those who are deceased; most of them still retain that good nature. However, if they have not been lucky enough to pass over into the light upon death, they can remain stuck in The Astral Plane, or as the Christian Faith calls it, Purgatory. We can all go there, Living or deceased; it is simply a higher vibrational dimension to Planet Earth. Many of us go there in our sleep and you can tell if you have been Astral travelling because you may wake up tired or have been dreaming of flying. But, I digress…. You see, in order to occupy an Earthly body, be it physical or Astral, you must still feed. You are bound by the laws of Earth and one of those laws is that we must consume energy (in our case food) in order for our bodies to function. Ghosts are stuck on the Astral Plane and their need is still there. However, they can’t just go to the local Supermarket and buy a loaf of bread…Their body is vibrating at a higher level than ours, so their food must also vibrate higher. That is why they haunt.
Most of them would prefer not to, I’m sure. However, it is hard to get energy out of something dormant. If they can give you a fright or a little scare, your adrenalin will kick in. Blood will rush to your limbs and you will enter fight or flight. This provides a rush of energy into your aura and it is from there that the Ghost can tap your energy field. Have you ever soon the kids’ movie ‘Monsters Inc’? Sweet little movie, hey? The concept of the Monsters jumping out of the closets of little children and bottling their screams to use as energy, is a great analogy to the way that Ghosts haunt.
Now a Ghost will attach itself to your Aura quite easily if you are sick or on drugs or depressed…Just like your immune system is vulnerable if it’s low, so is your Aura. You may not know you have an attachment, but you may find all of a sudden, you have a voice in the back of your mind telling you, for example, to smoke more Cigarettes or eat more Chocolate. I call this level of Ghostie an Influential and it is the equal and opposite to a Spirit Guide. Where as a Guide will make guided suggestions and guide your thinking, an Influential is out for itself and is only wanting to get the kick backs you can provide. Influentials are Spiritual Parasites. They tap into your Aura and therefore your energy systems and from there, they can vicariously experience the indulgences in Life they used to enjoy. Too bad id it’s wrecking your life, they’ll just dump you in time and go on to the next person.
Ok, so now I’ve totally freaked you out, I don’t want you to worry; you personally may not have Influentials. But you may know someone who has. They are the people whose personality has changed. It may seem a wonderful change in the beginning, or not, but it will be a fast change, usually and often it will lead down a destructive path. So how do we get rid of such attachments? It is good to seek out professional help to do this, and of course, a Spiritual Church or Spiritual Organisation is the best place to start. Make sure it is a Spiritually orientated place and not a Religiously orientated place…this is because Religions in this case are a great complimentary to the help, but you really need to seek the straight Spiritual Practitioner. The victim of an Influential will need an Aura Cleans and they will need to take home some exercises to do in order to reinforce the cleans. They will need to be taught Psychic Protection (see my blog on Psychic Protection June 11) and they will need to clean up their diet and sleep well. A total cleans and clear of the energy systems is in order. The Aura needs to be repaired and that can happen via the right Spiritual Practitioner and by a great diet, exercise and sleep regime. The best way to avoid Influential attachment is to practise Psychic Protection daily. To stay healthy and to keep your mind focused on the positive. By keeping your mind positive, you are reinforcing your hard outer energy shield and the Ghostie cannot attach. Think of it like a Free Range Chicken’s Egg shell…Compared to the thin shell of a Battery hen, the Egg Shell of a Free Range Chicken is hard and the yoke inside is bright yellow. We all need to have good strong Egg Shells. It sounds silly, but if we be like a Free Range Chicken, by keeping our head clean of negativity an our diet nutritious and our exercises free and often, our Aura will stay strong and impenetrable.
Ghosts are just a part of Life. They will all eventually, in the fullness of time, move on to the Light. They are stuck in the Astral Plane to learn just as we are here to learn and just as those who are in the Light also have things to learn. The growth of the Soul has many journeys. Please, do yourself a favour; if you come across a Ghost, don’t invite it back to your house or to be your friend. You will not be helping it and you will create a situation of a guest who will out stay their welcome.
Call upon the Light and ask that the Ghost be taken into the Light by those who love them. Ask that they go where no harm can come to them and where they can do no harm. Get help, if you need to in order to do this. This is the most compassionate thing we can do for our fellow Humans or Animals on their journey beyond a Bodily occupation. The Light will look after them and give them all they need, way more than any of us could.
