Possession by Problem Children

Problem Children is the term I gave many years ago to discarnates (ghosts) of people who had died, yet did not complete the process and thus did not return to the Creator. All too many are terrified at what they will find when they finish the process as Christianity and a variety of other religions bank on the fear that they feed both the masses and the individuals.  That fear, in turn, sadly keeps them from returning to the Creator and reuniting with the unconditional Love that exists.

So we have all these people just wandering around, right?  Some go here, some go there. So what happens to them all?  Some never hurt or harm anyone ever.  They follow their family members around until those family members die off – yet they are never reunited because this is not the movie Ghost and opportunities don’t just pop up spontaneously.

But there are those who are destructive, vengeful, angry, petty, malevolent, etc.  They realize they no longer have any energy supplied to them and so they begin to feed of other living beings.  Some will surreptitiously feed off animals, children, or adults but others will actively attach themselves to the living to feed directly off their source energy.

We have talked about this before, in other articles.  But I am writing this one to stress an aspect of this that I did not articulate much about previously.  The effects of a problem child attaching to someone “permanently” can vary, but are usually somewhat consistent.

  1. Feeling drained of energy
  2. Experiencing uncertain emotions and/or unreasonable emotional imbalances
  3. Hearing thoughts inside your head that are not your thoughts
  4. Experiencing memories that are not your ownand ultimately:
  5. Being pushed into the back of your mind as another personality takes over your form.

#5 is not common.  Most of the time the problem child has drained the person for so long that they are sickly and weak – not a good buffet at all any more! – so the problem child willingly detaches and looks for another source of energy.

I have encountered the opposite as well – discarnates that attached but were overwhelmed by the personality they attached to that they lose themselves and who they were and begin to think that they are the person they were attached to.  When that happens, and the person eventually dies, there can be tons of chaos and confusion experienced by the discarnate as he/she has now “died” twice.

It is rare for possession through problem child to take place, but it can.  Shielding is the number one protection against this happening for the problem child is ultimately opportunistic and looks for those who are easy prey for they have little energy themselves to spare fighting to get through anyone’s protection.

They don’t fall exactly into the Detrimental Energy Beings classification, but in this particular context they are definitely detrimental.

Ghosts – an all to common companion

I recently did a clearing on the home of a Reiki student of mine.  She lives in the Chicago area in an older home that she has remodeled beautifully.  Before she met me, she had brought in several mediums who had confirmed that there was something in the basement.  One had apparently even refused to go into the basement.  LOL Apparently while she could sense something was down there, it freaked her out and so she left.  She obviously lacked the skills/tools to do any form of clearing work.

This is a typical scenario for me.  I hear from one person or another that they know someone “gifted” who confirms they are not crazy (yeah!) but ultimately NOTHING is done to clear the environment.  Let me share a secret.  There are TONS of people who are authentically sensitive, whether they call themselves a Medium or a Sensitive an Intuitive or whatever.  Just because someone is capable of receiving an energetic impression does NOT mean they have the skills to do exorcist work and the vast, vast majority of people do not have the wherewithal to do it and should stay far, far away from that which they don’t understand.

I may have to write an article one day on the number of mediums who have come to me to be cleared/released of ‘stuff’ they picked up because their ego’s told them they could do the work I do.  sniff

Some people think it is cool to have a ghost in the house.  Some people refuse to believe that any exist at all and there is just a scientific/real world explanation behind it all. That’s all great – whatever floats your boat to keep you sane.  That said, I would like to put out there a different perspective for you to consider.

Discarnates – or ghosts, if you will – were once people.  These now-energetic presences were once living humans who were born and who died, who had families and friends and possibly even pets.  They cared for at least one person in their lifetime and some even cared so deeply that they mistakenly refused to shift when they themselves died because they were so fearful to not be with that person. Others still present were just afraid to go on because they had only been taught punishment was waiting for them.

For whatever reason, and believe me I have been told MANY, the individual passing refuses to return to whence they came and then what happens?  There are very, very few who are actually tied to a location.  Some choose to stay with their loved ones, but they don’t get to depart with them why those individuals pass on.  And then what?

The sad truth is, there are few options available to discarnates.  Most just start to fall into a state of somnolence and just exist.  One of my favorite things to do is to go to cemeteries and wake them up and then open the Gate and let them return to where they belong.  Sometimes, I ask for their loved ones to come to the opening so they can see it is ok for them to move on.  Many times I have sat with tears on my face watching them cross over, experiencing their happiness at their steps to return to completeness.

This, unfortunately, is the happy day scenario.  They come to me, I get them processed, and they move on.  I am only one person and can only cover so much of the world map at one time.  Even so, while I have processed hundreds of thousands of individuals around the planet, our plane of existence has many more than that still trapped here by their own decision.

So what does that have to do with the average person?  More people than will acknowledge have had some form of contact with a discarnate.  Sometimes they know someone who had some experience they cannot explain.  Sometimes they ‘think’ they know what the situation is (grandma is in the rocking chair, so no one uses it) when really, they don’t know who is using the rocking chair.

For the purpose of this blog, I am talking strictly of discarnates and not detrimental energy beings (who can also make things rock).

Discarnates are not tied to where they died, though some may linger in the location for a while.  If this were the cases, no one would walk through a hospital or a war zone without feeling incredibly creeped out.  The energy would be so thick with these spiritual presences that it would be like moving through jello.

There is a second type of discarnate I will talk about more, which people encounter more than they realize.  This discarnate is what I call the problem child.  Remember I said that most discarnates eventually fall into a state of somnolence?  There are 15-20% of discarnates that do not fall into this state of being.  They stay aware of who they were for at least a while, but that eventually disintegrates because of their actions.

This percentage of discarnates stays aware because of one reason alone – they feed off living humans.  They do this through 2 methods:

  1. They locate someone “attractive” energetically to them and attack them regularly. When they attack, the human has an energetic reaction and they then feed off that energy.
  2. Method too is a bit more insidious.  Again, they locate someone “attractive” energetically but instead of scaring them to feed they attach themselves to the individual and draw their energy directly from the person.

Both of these methods are harmful to the human.  When I encounter these situations, I have to clear the discarnate before I can process them through.  A slightly time-consuming process, but they will not be allowed to move onward tainted by their actions as they are.  Once cleansed, then they are easily shifted.

But what about the human?  What kinds of things does the human experience through this “feeding”?  Even when the human is unaware of these attacks, whether you want to classify them as psychic or spiritual or energetic, they still have a real-world, physical reaction.

Sometimes that reaction is constant exhaustion.  It’s no fun to have your energy drained and thus when it is, you have no energy for yourself – so yes, you will be tired, sometimes extraordinarily so.  From this state, many fall into ill-health and depending upon their actions can pass onwards themselves.

Sometimes the effects are more subtle on the person but are noticed by those in their life. They may start to experience personality changes, behavioral pattern changes, or even emotional stability changes.  They may experience rage and anger, depression or overwhelming sadness, and even start to contemplate suicide.  For the vast majority, their upbringing will allow the only recourse of running to the doctor for a prescription for a pill that will fix the situation.  In my experience, the pill is ineffective and indeed, will not stop the voices they hear nor will it stop the urges they feel to kill themselves.

I apologize if this seems a harsh thing to say, and I certainly have no intention of saying that every suicide was preventable “if only” someone had contacted an exorcist.  What I am saying is that by considering a different viewpoint, a different reality other than one’s “normal”, you may be able to allow a change to take place for the better, instead of for the worse.

Discarnates do not feel remorse for their actions – these are actions they are deliberately taking because they see it as a way of survival for themselves.  If the human falls ill (old or young, male or female) they will continue their actions until the point they find someone new to feed off.  Then, there they go and the cycle repeats ad infinitum until I, or someone like me, is brought in to send them on their way.

Our reality is not like Hollywood.  These spiritual presences are not going to have a second salvation as in “Ghost” or “The 6th Sense” where a light appears spontaneously or they mysteriously fade away once their problem is solved.  Because there is no problem to be solved for them to move on.  They just need to be helped in a tangible way for their state of being.

Now, I know this is going to make MANY wanna be ghost watchers and book writers gnash their teeth at me, but I have been dealing with discarnates since I was five years old.  They may tell you bits and pieces of their life, but they don’t hang on looking for that ‘special person’ to come along and finish their quest or bring their murderer to justice. Most are just confused and don’t even remember who they were and are just thankful to find me.

And quite frankly, I have dealt with a large number of ghost ‘busters’ over the years who become quite irate with me over the fact that I cleanse spaces of detrimental beings – including ghosts – because they feel I am stealing their opportunity for 15 minutes of fame away from them.

Well, grow TFU buttercup.  This ghost was a person – as I said above a living, loving human being and not just an ‘opportunity’ for you.  I respect all living beings rights – physical or energetic – and just because you don’t really believe they were human or believe that they have any rights does not mean your actions are right or proper.

I take some small delight in the fact that I have cleared locations and spaces of discarnates when I have had encounters with ugly people who feel it is their right to merchandise said energetic presence/s.

Just to beat it to a fine point, think of someone you love who has passed on.  Maybe it is a grandparent or a friend who died in a tragic accident or someone who developed cancer or another disease and fought a losing battle.  Think of this person and ask yourself – if they were standing in front of you right now and you had to justify making money off of their dead body and/or presence what would you say?

Yes – what would you say to them?  How would you justify the self-serving actions of prostituting them out to others for money?  Could you?

Well, I cannot and so I take the side of what I see as ethically and morally correct and I protect them and serve their Highest and Best Good by clearing them and shifting them onwards so they return to where they came.  There is a specific process, it works 100% of the time, and no, it is not just telling them to ‘go into the Light’ because that is not going to happen on its own, thank you very much.

I was designed to do this Spiritual Work and when I do this Work I am filled with Joy and so I continue to do this Work every day.  Sometimes it is for clients, sometimes for friends or family, and sometimes it is for the Planet because every time discarnates are shifted onwards or detrimental energy beings are cleansed the vibration of the planet is raised by a teensy tiny amount.  And lord knows, living here is hard enough that we can use all those teensy tiny amounts to make this plane a better place to live.

Exorcism – what is that exactly?

According to the Catholic Encyclopedia New Advent, exorcism is:

(1) the act of driving out, or warding off, demons, or evil spirits, from persons, places, or things, which are believed to be possessed or infested by them, or are liable to become victims or instruments of their malice;

(2) the means employed for this purpose, especially the solemn and authoritative adjuration of the demon, in the name of God, or any of the higher power in which he is subject.

There are multiple reports on the web that will tell you exorcism rates have gone up or have gone down, but just like with all statistics on the web those ‘facts’ really need to be taken with a teaspoon of salt.  I know multiple individuals who do the work that I do and not a single person or entity has asked them if their business has gone up or down, regardless of what religion or affiliation they belong to.

What THAT means is that some are Shamans, many align themselves as New Age Christians, some consider themselves spiritual, and others who identify as Metaphysical.  Personally, I view myself as “spiritual” because no one particular belief system has ever worked for me and as I use gifts such as clairaudience to communicate with the Angelics and Light Beings, that is the closest I can do for labeling myself.

So – if over 25 people I know who do this either part time or full time have never been pinged, I think it is quite safe to say that whoever is creating these reports has very faulty knowledge.

So – back to exorcism.  I don’t use the word myself as it has a LOT of negative connotations with it, from misinformation to outright hilarity, but I do use it when I try to explain to someone who is completely outside the metaphysical word because the word is recognized easily.

The word is recognized, but the individual who does this work comes in many different shapes and sizes.  Some label themselves as Mediums because they can speak with ghosts/discarnates but they never do any de-possession work.

Some like to work with nature and balancing out the energies of the planet from the various ills that have and are occurring that create negative energies.

The majority of individuals I know who have learned how to do this work just choose to not do it for what should be obvious reasons.  Those reasons range from it is just a scary idea that demons etc. exist to the fear of becoming possessed because they are trying to help someone else.

If the exorcist contacted reacts with anything other than curiosity, you may want to reconsider utilizing their services.  Curiosity is not eagerness. Eagerness can be a strong indicator of lack of experience which can lead to the knowledge that they really have not been trained at all to do the work.

If you are concerned about this person’s experience level ask for particular situation examples.  Length of time doing this work means nothing if someone has only done this work twice in 10 years.  Professionals will not mind giving you examples of work they have done, though they ought not provide details so specific that you could track the situation down on the internet.

Again – this work is not for the faint of heart and it is not for someone who has watched some movie and thinks they can talk to spirits so hey, let’s give it a try.

Ghosts are relatively easy to process though there is that percentage that are stubborn and attach themselves to someone or some thing to be able to stay on this plane of existence.  I know there exists a certain percentage of individuals who feel that having ghosts around is really cool, however, their being present on the earth plane is not proper for their soul plus if you are helping them stay that can create negative karma on your part.

I am not going to go into to move ghosts/discarnates along in this article. It has too often been misunderstood and misused and there are too many people out there who simply belong in the “that’s not going to happen to me” category, thus they do something that not only endangers themselves but others.

Please don’t misunderstand me.  I am not going to stop someone from exercising their free will to do whatever they want.  It is the fact that they do things that can endanger someone else who may not have had the situation explained properly or they have not been given the opportunity to exercise their free will that concerns me.

I have dealt with too many young people who saw a movie and decided they would do something “to see what happens” and then end up in situations that are not easily resolved.  The fear and pain they feel from what they have acquired thus keeps them from helping themselves, sealing the demons and detritus within them and leaving those outside of them unable to assist.

Ghosts/discarnates are easier to deal with than the demon category.  Working with the land is easier still.  Demons should never be attempted unless you have worked under the eye of someone who has not only the skill to take care of the situation but can also take care of YOU should you fall prey to that which you are supposed to be ridding someone of.

Just as you would not go to someone for surgery who has not gone to school AND done a lengthy residency under another doctor’s eye, don’t contact just ANYONE to do the work that is necessary.  Reputable exorcists (or cleansers, as I prefer to call myself) will be able to tell you what the situation is from where they are sitting and how much it will cost before they ever come out.  If they give you a standard pricing menu then you may want to look elsewhere.

This work is not the same as a party where you pull out your Ouija board to play pretend.  People can be hurt emotionally, physically, and energetically when screw offs dabble where they should not.

And the truth is, there is an exceedingly small percentage of the people who DO this work who are actually proficient at it.  Most are fooled by the demons to thinking they are gone when, in fact, the demon just hopped hosts.

If this is giving you pause, making you question what you have believed to be true, or causing you to sneer – GOOD.  All these reactions mean you have actually read what this article is about and comprehended enough to have a reaction to it.  This is the first step.

I always give estimates before I work with anyone and I will tell them how many sessions (if more than 1) it will take to clear the situation up.  If it takes more than that I often times eat the extra cost, unless there was way more to the situation than was shared with me.

Free will allows the client to not tell me everything and if they don’t share something pertinent with me, I don’t have the right to necessarily pry into the situation energetically.  For example, let’s say you know grandpa’s been acting very unlike himself for years but you contact me to just have the house cleared because you have had doors open or lights turn on or off.

Well, after I am done the house will be cleared, but it is momentary if grandpa’s possessed.  You might get a whole 24 hours of peace, but after that it is uncertain because that which has possessed grandpa may just attract more things to the space.

You will encounter a large number of exorcists who will assure you up, down, left, right, and sideways that when they are done the space will stay cleared forever. This is not true – and thus this person is not truly an exorcist.  Our world is made up of energy and these beings are also energy.  They are attracted to certain energy frequencies and if grandpa is the lighthouse saying “come on over” you will absolutely have something begin to happen.

I love my work.  This work and my ability to do it explained why I have been the way I have been all my life.  This work fills me with joy.  I love possession work, I love clearing the land/space/environments, and I love the discarnate work.  There are other things in addition to this, but I am not going to dig into that because it can scare people to know about them

I freak 99.99% of people in the Light Community out because of the work I do.  I freak out 100% of those with the fact that the work fills me with joy.  Most people who do this work feel they HAVE to do this work because they keep getting asked to do something and they just fall into the pattern of doing it.  This does not mean they are effective at it – they are just the “go to” person for the area and feel obligated to continue to do so.  In some cases, when someone like me comes into the area, their ego will go so upset that they will continue to do the work even though they are not that good at it.

Many people who do this work are sincere in their desire to help others free themselves from what they perceive as evil.  This is a commendable attitude and belief, however, this alone is not going to make them effective.  Full body possession can be a terrifying situation for someone who is totally not prepared for it.  While some things can be done distantly, true full body possession requires a hands-on approach.  Often this is for the loved ones to be able to reach out and touch the exorcist and know help is actually there.

Do not ever discount the comfort an exorcist can provide by just being present in the space. 90% of my work does not need me to be physically present, yet my being there for clients lends them emotional comfort.  So, I do it when I can.  Since many cannot afford the expenses involved with bringing me to their environment I often do sessions distantly to get the situation under a certain amount of control.

At that point, sadly, the situation is no longer as scary and people state that they are fine with the way it now is and so my services are no longer needed.  This is sad, not because I am worried about losing income, but because the situation ONLY has a band aid on it and will eventually recreate what made them scared in the first place.

I have done work in homes, businesses, historical venues, churches, and stores. There is no ‘sacred’ place that will keep demons away because our world is made of energy and these are energy beings.  Tell yourself to stop breathing air and see how long that works for you. Same thing, though a little convoluted on the example.

I pride myself on discretion; it does not help anyone to act like the crazy person from the movies and it can prevent people from seeking help in the first place. Professional exorcists are just that – professional.  If you get someone in who starts behaving in a way that makes you extremely uncomfortable (I have seen some weird stuff in my time that was supposed to be effective) stop them.  Make them explain exactly what they are doing and why.  If they cannot explain what and why then you ought to have them leave.  It is a 99% chance they have no idea what they are doing and will only complicate the matter greatly.

And, if they say they want to film it or bring in equipment, please note – these are not exorcists.  They are paranormal groupies looking to document “something” to boost their egos.  Every show you watch on TV that purports to be “real” is fake. Promise – fake.  I have encountered two such groups in the past and both were completely intimidated by the work I do.  They like to believe it is all fake and make believe, but you put a proper possession or haunting in their faces and they freak out because they don’t know what to do!  One key person on the show became extremely hostile to me because he wanted to make money off of what I wanted to clear away.  NOT someone you want in your home or work environment!

Professionals will empathize and try to leave your home as untouched as possible. They know you have to live there.  Sometimes it may be necessary to move furnishings around, but exorcists don’t haul in more than a small bag or two of stuff to do their work and they won’t start banging holes in your walls. They won’t want to put cameras up to film everything that goes on either.  These people are just voyeurs who are looking for some validation that they exist.  Go professional – it may cost a little more, but isn’t grandpa’s sanity and your home worth it?

To end up this long diatribe regarding authentic exorcists, use your common sense. Hauntings and possessions are NOT common sense oriented, but that does not mean you need to throw everything out the window because it is new to you.  God gave you some sense – use it to help yourselves and rid yourself of the drama!
