Basics Everyone Should Know About “Hauntings” – #1

I am known by my students, clients, friends, and family to be a blunt speaking individual. While I make every attempt to be kind in my personal life, in my professional life kindness is not appropriate.  Please do not misunderstand me – I want to hear your story and I want to understand why you have come to me, but I do not have time for you to tell me my business and/or correct me when I am trying to explain something to you. Time is always of the essence in this line of work.

It always amazes me the number of individuals who come to me for assistance who then turn around and try to tell me my business.  They have no valid information whatsoever other than what they have seen in a movie or heard from a friend who saw it in a movie or read it online or some other most likely nonsensical place.  The internet is a source of both information and ignorance and it really is important to understand the difference if you want to make it through life relatively unscathed.

So, just as a head’s up for some people who keep telling me what’s what, here are some basics everyone should know.  I will elaborate further in the future.

  1. Just because you think you are haunted does not mean you actually have ghosts within your environment.
  2. Detrimental Energy Beings (DEBs) come in many shapes, forms, and sizes.
  3. DEBS do not need your permission to attach to you.
  4. DEBs do not need your permission to enter your house.  Vampires are a made up story and if they existed probably would not care about your permission either.
  5. DEBs do not need your permission to attack you or your children or your pets.
  6. DEBs will not leave just because you spray holy water around a room.  That will only make your things wet.
  7. Waving a cross will not make DEBs or ghosts go away.  It is an object and objects have no inherent power over anything energetic.
  8. DEBs will not leave because you read something you found on the internet at them three times.  That is nonsense and only makes you look silly when you shriek that out.
  9. 99.999% of ghosts are not trapped where they died.
  10. Ghosts will not “go into the light” just because you tell them to.  That’s just silly.
  11. Mediums are conduits for communication – the vast majority of them do not know how to make an environment safe for people.
  12. Not everyone who says they are an exorcist or a shaman on the internet really knows what they are doing.  Do your research – buyer beware!
  13. Just because someone’s grandma could see the dead or hear the dead does not mean that they themselves have the needed knowledge base comparable to tending a true haunting or a possession situation.  Please stick with the valid experts so no one really gets hurt.
  14. Just because someone has a tv show does not mean they are compentent, knowledgeable, or effective – or even knows how to tell the truth.  Please brush up your skills of observation to understand the difference between entertainment and professional skills.
  15. The professional exorcist does not dress like a dragged out gypsy.  We are professionals and professionalsim requires us to be discrete in all ways as our clients don’t exactly what a billboard advertisement regarding who visits them.

Yes, I know you had an experience and for many, the experience is actually many incidents over a period of time which have scared you.  I am not here to scare you.  This is why I am not going to give you a master’s thesis on what is going on in your situation nor am I going to teach you about how to take care of it.  When I take on a client, I eliminate what is bothering the client and make their space habitable again.  I will give you some after-care instructions for you to continue to keep your space positive but it is not the end-all of solutions.

I was born to do this work.  Many people like to say that, or they say they were drawn to the work, but the truth is there are very few of us who are born to this work much less effective at this work and many, many more wanna be’s who actually make the situation worse.

Please be careful in making your choices.  Everything you do is an opportunity for both the Light and the Darkness and you are entirely responsible for every choice you make in your life.

The Joy of Being an Exorcist

I just completed teaching a Reiki 1 course this last weekend and it is one of the joy’s I get to experience in my life path.  I am fortunate that I have multiple ways to help individuals release, heal, and grow during their lifetime and while it is hard for others to see, my gifts and my paths are intertwined with doing that while developing along my own spiritual path.

The work I do with Michael, whether you want to label me an exorcist or any other word, is exciting and fulfilling for me.  When I encounter those who do not have any experience with this line of reality they always follow the same process towards acceptance of this aspect of my life.  Or, there is that percentage of people who do not accept it and then they fall within one of two camps.

I do not hide what I do within the circles I frequent – it is a part of me and I cannot deny it any more than the average person can deny the color of their eyes.  I don’t flaunt it because I am sensitive to others’ discomfort, and when people do reach a point of rationalizing it in their minds they usually ask questions, ranging from intriguing to outright ridiculous.

My greatest enmity has and continues to be “reality” shows and Hollywood that purport to put out valid and credible information regarding ghosts, hauntings, demons, and possessions.  The second is people who have no hesitation to use their children and/or loved ones in dangerous situations so they can attempt to garner their 15 minutes of fame because they are either too stupid or too selfish to understand the true danger these individuals could experience if there are demons or discarnates present.

The third are religions that have no knowledge based upon reality yet seem to think they are the authorities of the matter because over the centuries the valid ones who did were eliminated by said religious organizations.

I am the type of teacher who loves to have interactions with my students during the class period.  PLEASE ask your questions when you have them, I tell every class, because then not only do I know you are listening but you are also then relating the information I am sharing with you to your own life.

I was designed a particular way, with particular spiritual/psychic gifts, and with a particular personality.  I am not scared when someone is experiencing a full body possession; I am not scared by creepy noises or lights going on and off by themselves.  I live for those moments because they are fun to me; in the beginning they would challenge my abilities and I would grow.  Now, while they don’t challenge me as they did, they are still fulfilling because that is my path in life.

So – for the questioners out there, email me.  I don’t shame anyone for their questions and for those out there who are afraid, email me.  I will help everyone and anyone as best able.  I would rather people contact me directly instead of reaching out to the local paranormal pretender so that I can give valid advice on steps to take instead of you getting hurt by someone stupid telling you to do something stupid.

Stupid, yes.  Not ignorant but stupid – someone who displays a great lack of intelligence or common sense, and in this case that lack is regarding demons and discarnates and their abilities.  The reality I live in is not Hollywood, it is not a place where you can yell “cut” and someone can rush in and make a change or shift their body and then you continue to play act.  I deal with real lives and I help real people get through traumatic experiences in their lives.

But if you set up a situation because you wanted attention and now your child is paying the price for it, I will bitch slap you upside the back of your head.  Just saying…

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!

The Red Sweater

Back in 2003 I was still working in Corporate America.  One day a co-worker asked me if I wanted to look at a bag of clothes being shared with the other mother’s on the floor.  With two children and never enough money for nice clothes for myself I said, “Of course!”  This bag was also a “give away” bag so I was encouraged to share any clothes I wanted to give away.

I took the bag home with me that day and after all the day’s duties were done, I dumped the clothing out.  There were a number of different sizes within the bag and a number of different types of clothing – work clothes, play/fun clothes, sweaters, blouses, etc.  Some were very nice and some were worn, but clean.

My attention was immediately caught by a lovely red sweater.  It was made of soft yarn but was not cashmere.  It was a bright color that would be beautiful on someone who had the appropriate hair color to go with it.  I did not, so I picked it up to fold and put back into the bag.

As I picked it up, I became aware that this sweater had a passenger.  There are a great many ghosts/discarnates that are caught in our reality.  The majority are here because fear prevented them from moving, but there is a small percentage that stay or are kept here for different reasons.

This particular sweater had a young man attached to it, so against my normal practices I sat down and had a chat with him.  Apparently this sweater had been a gift to a young woman he had thought highly of with whom he had hoped to develop a romantic relationship.  She, however, was not in the same mindset as he was and rejected him after accepting the gift.

Our young man, after certain life circumstances occurred, killed himself as a result.  During the passing process, instead of moving on as he should have, he energetically attached himself to this sweater because the young woman was the focus of all his attention.  It is creepy, to be sure, to become the sweater you hope your desired love interest will wear, but it is not the strangest story I have heard.

After our brief chat, I told him that I could not allow him to stay attached and that I needed to shift him out.  Once he had finished the process, he would be able to come back and visit the girl as needed, but he HAD to go now.

I explained to him a bit about the way he interacted negatively with people who encountered the sweater and that he was incurring negative karma by this negative interaction.  In the end, he really did not have much choice since he had tied all his energy to the sweater and I had trapped him within a holding sphere.  He made the transition easily and effortlessly and I finished by clearing all the energy attachments to and from the sweater so it could be used safely.

I returned the sweater along with all the other clothes back to the bag and the next day returned it to my co-worker as she was its distributor.  I asked her about the red sweater – it was a beautiful sweater, did she know where it came from or why no one wanted it?

She said she did not know why it had been donated to the bag, but said she had been told it was beautiful by many who looked at it, but each time someone picked it up they were creeped out by it. I told her the end of the sweater story and she decided to test it out by taking it back to the first person she knew had admired it and asked them again if they wanted it.  This time, they were not creeped out and took it right away.

Happy endings, that’s what we like!

Fear Can Be a Powerful Motivator

There are many people with kind hearts and a desire to help that exist on the Earth Plane.  There are also many people who are not kind and only desire to hurt any and all that they can impact.  Unfortunately, neither category of people really knows what to do when situations fall outside their normal, accepted lives.

The internet is both a good thing and a bad thing.  When I was growing up, it did not exist. I could not escape to my room and google the things that I was experiencing.  There was nothing I could turn to that would help explain what I was sensing, feeling, seeing…nothing that could allay my fears that my parents only compounded by telling me there was nothing there.  Nothing there – yet I could see it plain as day.

Again, the internet is both good and bad.  For those who are in need, there are plenty of site you can google to look at, see if their ideas are reasonable, see if they match up with what your experience is.  And the flip side of that is there are far too many idiots out there telling people to do something that will a) not help the situation, b) not explain the situation, and c) will only complicate the situation that is present.

All too often fear is the motive driving the person’s research.  Fear for themselves or fear for their children.  Fear is a healthy motivator, but that fear also makes one vulnerable to those that prey upon the ones in need.

I don’t keep track of the people who visit my site, who read the blogs and look at the different pages.  That is unimportant to me.  What is important is that my information is out there and somewhere, someone is using it and helping themselves either with information or with steps that can be taken to help protect themselves.

God helps those who help themselves and when you are in a situation where you are being scared by something non-human, that is a time when you need to help yourself.  There are ways to clear everything – you just have to ask.

Discarnates, Detritus, and Demons – Part 2

I am extremely sensitive to the paranormal.  I can see them and hear them and I can tell people exactly what is in their homes AND I can tell people what is attached to them directly.

I want this message to reach the people who are experiencing weird and creepy events in their homes, business, and personal lives so they know they are not alone. There are some beings that co-exist with us that are good and want to help us, but there are also malevolent beings who like nothing better than to frighten you and cause you pain.

I am sharing the following with you because I want you to realize that the little things you are ignoring have a tendency to turn into big things over time and you have a resource to help you right here. If you are experiencing situations that scare you because they don’t have a rational explanation, I urge you to contact me because it really needs to get taken care of before it gets ugly.

GHOSTS/DISCARNATES:

Everyone has experienced the loss of those they have known in this lifetime.  The majority of people do not understand what happens during the after people die.  We have a large number of religions in the world today that try to explain what happens, but my experiences have diverged greatly from the doctrine taught.

Ghosts are often viewed as dead people walking around, or sometimes they are believed to be tied to wherever they died.  If that was true, it would be impossible to get through hospitals because the hallways would be too crowded!

Hollywood rarely portrays the supernatural in its real form because it is not exciting enough for the big screen.  Instead they make movies with little girl’s heads turning around and her throwing up green goo everywhere and then let her crawl on the ceiling to sensationalize and glorify ghosts and demons.

I have been working professionally with people who have been afflicted by ghosts, detritus and demons for 15 years.  For the previous 35 years I experienced multiple encounters with ghosts and detritus.  I do my job so that no one has to be scared or nervous or anxious about where they work, live, or stay.

Do you remember being young, put to bed to go to sleep all by yourself while all the adults were in another part of the house?  Were you scared of the dark?  Did you hear noises that scared you? I was scared of the dark for many years. Once I was living on my own I always had night lights, because I had experienced so many things that came out in the dark.

My ability to sense ghosts – what I call discarnates – grew but instead of seeing them with my eyes, they appeared in my head and I now I could hear them talking to me in my head. I would go to work every morning, and by the time I came home that night I would have 2 or 3 dead people wandering around my upstairs bedroom area!

After I had children I would tell them to let me know if you see or hear anything – anything at all because I did not want the things I knew of to scare them.  I am not sure if they saw or heard anything when they were tiny, but I do know they saw things once they reached elementary school age.

I remember one night walking into my office and seeing two little old ladies sitting on my couch.  Sisters!  They were dressed in clothes out of the 30s.  They talked over each other in their eagerness to tell me about themselves.

I have been to historical sites many times over the years, and a number of them bring in extra income by advertising “ghost walks” where they would walk you through the old buildings after dark and tell you stories about “what someone saw” at some point in time.

90% of what they talk about is not true.  The stories might be true, but there are very few ghosts there.  If you really want to experience ghosts, don’t go to historical sites, don’t go to cemeteries.

GO TO THE MALL.

Discarnates are drawn to the living.  Some will even try to touch you and some will try to attach to you so they can use your energy.

Close your eyes – imagine you are walking around your favorite shopping area – going past the Cheese Cake factory, passing Game Stop and the food mall, DSW, and Godiva chocolates.  As you are walking, you have to brush past numerous people who are just standing in the middle of the walkway and you are walking through them!  Some will cling to you as you walk past them and others just stand still, taking in your energy.

Creepy, eh?  But it happens all the time!  Where ever I go, mall, churches, concerts, bars, restaurants, you name it – there are discarnates everywhere! I do my “thing” right there and help them move on, because if I don’t they follow me until I do!

Remember when you were little and you heard stories of the ghost that walked down the hallway every night at midnight, disappearing into the doorway at the very lost ding of the clock!

Or maybe the story of how at the exact same time every night the sound of something crashing to the floor in the room next to yours could be, but when the door is opened, nothing is there.

Those are not ghosts!  Those are actually what I call emotional imprint – a tear in the energy of the room that was created by someone experiencing great emotional distress.

One of my favorite experiences occurred in the early 2000s.  My then-husband and I were in bed when suddenly, he grabs my arm freaking out!  He tells me that there is something standing at the end of the bed staring at him!  It was HUGE, very dark, and it had huge glowing eyes.

Well, there was something dark standing at the end of the bed but what he saw was just a projection put into his mind by the ghost.  He got scared by the ghost and it found it amusing. The ex wanted me to get rid of it ASAP.  But then he changed his mind and asked me to leave it alone.  I thought he had finally lost it!  Then, he tells me that that he thinks it might be his grandfather and he wanted to try to communicate with it for a few days. Really?  Your grandfather was someone who would appear scary like that? Well, I knew it was NOT his grandfather, but he had to have his own experience.

Well, the discarnate got tired of waiting of the ex annoying him, I guess, and late at night it scattered a 3 inch pile of my kids papers I had saved up to put in a scrap book ALL OVER MY BATHROOM!  Papers were everywhere!  It was a huge mess. Well, I needed to sleep, so I sent him off to my office to wait.  I had a clearly designated area that the others would wait in, so he could wait there too!

I want you to know, it truly is rare to see a physical manifestation from discarnates, so I really was excited about the incident.  Most of the things attributed to “ghosts” are actually caused by demons and the removal process is very different for each y are definitely handled very differently, but that is a different conversation entirely!

When I finally did get down to business, he showed me his story, in 3d, in my head.  I felt great empathy for him because being human is HARD!  It is difficult here.  Living through challenges that break our hearts, being betrayed by those we trust – these are situations we all go through and which he had experienced in his short life.  I learned he was murdered in his early 30s because he told the wrong person that he loved someone.  To top it off, he was hung in the place where they used to meet and talk!

Needless to say, he had some major anger issues needing to be resolved! I also learned that he had been very bad during the 150+ years he had been wandering around North Carolina.  He had hurt people by mimicking lights and sounds near the cliff and caused people to fall to their deaths.  Eventually he got bored, so he started wandering around the Carolinas, watching people age and die.  Finally, he found me and let me help him move on.

It is not, unfortunately, a rare situation where the dead person wanders around, watches people, and sometimes does malicious things.  They may be dead, but some are aware enough and clever enough to learn how to manipulate the physical world and to steal energy from the living.

One night, after my separation, I was alone, reading in my living room.  I had a table lamp on, when suddenly, the light went out.  I turned the switch on the lamp, but nothing happened.  I checked the light bulb – nope, it was good.  I checked the wall switch, thinking maybe a fuse tripped.  No light, no matter what I did.  As I was sitting there, the lamp turned back on, then turned off again, and then turned back on again.  It did that a few times – I guess it wanted to make sure it had my full attention!  LOL

Well, I went into “professional mode” and yep, there were some dead folks in my living room who were impatient to get a move on.

The dead are drawn to the living.  Sometimes they lingered because they did not want to leave someone, but then the loved one passes on properly and the discarnate ends up hanging out at the mall because they are all alone.

I had an encounter in a subdivision that had once been a large farm.  The farm house was still there, but the majority of the property was now houses.

I was contacted to help out with this situation because the person was sensitive and knew something was there.  Not only that, people in the neighborhood were talking and almost everyone had an encounter with their “ghost”.

Sometimes discarnates are confused.  Their personalities are that of who they were when their bodies died, but some have been around so long that they are more “asleep” than “aware”.

I had to pull this guy’s dead wife from beyond the veil before he would cooperate with me.  Once he saw her, he was MORE than ready to hit the road.

I have dealt with discarnates that have been tied to where they were buried because of voodoo curses.

I have dealt with discarnates who were terrorizing animals in the neighborhood.

I regularly go to cemeteries, not just because they are one of my favorite places to go, and very peaceful to boot, but because discarnates will go to where they are buried and “go to sleep”.  They just basically become vegetables and zone out.

But – this is important! – all discarnates need to be moved on – otherwise the spiritual presence that they are won’t get merged back into the whole and their experiences don’t get shared.  So, I help them out.

DETRITUS:

ENTITIES
I have also encountered things I call detritus.  The few we will discuss today are entities, portals and wells.

I have actually seen film footage that showed an Entity floating through a gas station one night.  They are like clouds and they hover and feed off the emotions of the people in the direct area. Strong emotions attract them. Sporting events always have a bunch of them – people get so worked up about their team winning or losing!  They don’t realizing they are something’s snack!

When that happens the person will actually start feeling physically tired along with emotionally exhausted after being worked up by the Entity! So the next time you are watching a game or at an event where the person is trying to get you motivated and worked up – remember, you could be feeding some entities in the area!

PORTALS
Portals are openings into other planes –like a window or a door.  Portals are used by neutral and dark beings to look at this world, and sometimes they will use them to move into and back out of this reality.

When you encounter a portal, you may feel a slight electric shock or you might feel a cold spot in a room.  Once a portal is opened, it stays there unless it is closed and sealed from one side or the other.

Many times, portals are used to track down specific people and then the negative energy being uses the portal to transfer to that individual.

Portals can be used by other negative energy beings, so one might open the portal and use it, and possibly a long period of time can pass before another being decides to use it.  It will remain in the same general area until it is closed out.

Portals can be in ceilings, walls, floors, or even just hanging in the air in a room.  There are not restrictions of where a portal can appear.  I have found them in bathrooms, living rooms, children’s rooms, kitchens, bedrooms – you name it!  I have also found them outside and sometimes see them when I am driving down the road.

If you drive through one, you can become disoriented!  That happened to me once when I was driving from North Carolina to Florida.  I got to Georgia when wham – there it was and I had no way to avoid it.  I ended up being disoriented and if I had continued driving I would have been a hazard to the other drivers.

WELLS
Wells are energy pools that pull specific types of negative emotions to them.  They do serve a purpose, but unfortunately so few people know how to drain them that they too become a hazard to people.  They can cause nightmares, disorientation, nausea, and a host of other emotions – all dependent upon the individual who experiences the emotions that were captured in the well.

DEMONS:

One day, maybe a year after I had been doing this work professionally, a friend of mine called up and asked for help.  His son was 8 years old and had been acting out at school and church and exhibiting behaviors that were not normal for him.

The latest incident had involved a little girl in his class and it was very serious.  The child had said extremely sexual things to her during lunch and no one knew from where he had learned the words!

Well, after joking with my friend about magazines and movies, I agreed that yes, there was something odd about the child and I would check him out!

That night, when I went into meditation I noticed immediately that there was a darkness surrounding the top of his head and floating over his head.  It was entirely unlike anything I had ever encountered before.

This was my first “real” encounter with a demon and I had certainly not been expecting it.  Really, at that point in my life I had experienced so much but never encountered a demon, so I kind of doubted they were real.  Well, that experience helped me believe in them!  It took a significant amount of time, but at the end the demon was removed.  It took a little while for the little boy to recover from the incident, and today he does not have any lasting memory of what had happened or what had been attached to him.

I have encountered thousands of different types of demons and the truth is they attach to people of all ages, all religions, in all locations regardless of the personal circumstances that person is living.  The most common element all humans share is the ability to experience a wide range of emotions.  We are emotional beings!  We feel hurt and sadness, grief and joy, and everything in between in many nuances and degrees.

Demons are drawn to particular people who have the emotional wounds with which the demon resonates.

Some demons only have an intelligence level of a 3 year old child.  These types of demons may not be capable of high level critical thinking, but boy are they good at manipulative emotions in a person!  They can take a group of people having a fun, happy time and cause them to scream at each other in just minutes!

High level demons are smart and extremely clever and extremely manipulative.  These are the types that generally strive for the fully body possession achievement. Nothing is more dangerous than a high level demon that is attempting a take over with the goal of full body possession.

Demons have abilities that people don’t know about.  Most religions that talk about demons just use them as the boogie man.  Most religions’ idea of exorcism IS a joke! Demons look into your mind and memories and they and see all your fears and then they will use those fears against you.  Whether you are the first victim, the priest, or the pastor brought in to help at the end they will twist and manipulate the individuals they encounter who are open to them!

Demons cause a multitude of problems for people and the truth is – everyone has some attached to them! Yes – everyone has demons attached to them because every human is an emotional being.  There are always wounds you have not healed, or you have suppressed them, and refused to admit they exist. These wounds attract the demons and when they find you, they attach to you.

It is not pleasant to think about how many demons are attached to you this very moment, but please don’t worry about turning into the little girl from the exorcist movies at any second.

Your head is not going to do a 360 and you are not necessarily going to spew out vile, green vomit!  While full body possession does occur, very few people actually have a full body possession occur.  What they actually experience is what I call the “influence level”.

Most people today are functioning at the 70% influenced level…give or take a percentage point.

Just as “functioning alcoholics” have learned to cope in their day-to-day life activities while drunk, most people learn to cope or ignore the demons that are attached.  They keep functioning even though the demons are interfering with them.  A person can live their entire life like this without consciously knowing what is attached and instead blames themselves entirely for their lack of commitment, or lack of discipline, or just a general “badness”.

I have dealt with a number of clients where someone died and shortly after another family member started to act just like the dead person had while alive.  They began to talk the same way as the dead person had.  They may even pick up the habits the dead person had.  Some will start to self-destruct just like the dead person had.

Some began to hear a voice in their head talking to them, others just felt depressed and sad and did not realize what was happening to them

I want to tell you – these voices are not your friends, your dead relative has not come back to visit you – and this is a demon who was attached to that dead family member and jumped to you because you were the next tasty morsel around.  So, so easy for them to do!

I have seen them jump from mother to infant, shortly after birth.  I have seen so many situations where the children of parents who died started acting just like their parent did.

This family pattern of passing along demons to your loved ones is an easily preventable situation and it should be!

Demons don’t bring joy and happiness into someone’s life.  #1 rule – Demons lie.  Regardless of what they tell you, that they are a spirit guide here to help you, or that they are a dead relative staying to help you – whatever they pull from your own mind to use against you is just that – a weapon against you for them to gain control over your mind and then body! Because they are NOT GOOD!

I have encountered several people over the years who refused to remove the demons when they learned about them.  One was a shaman who insisted that she needed her demons to keep her strong.  Ok – whatever.

Another was a young man who had acquired his “friend” when he was a tiny child.  He had lived so long with this demon that even though the demon took over his body and did bad things to other people, he refused to get rid of him because his demon was his “friend”.

Once I did some work with a man who wanted to be a writer.  When I told him about a particular demon that was attached to him, he would not let me remove it.  He said it was his “muse” and if it was removed he was afraid he would no longer be able to write.

Folks – when your friends get you arrested because the fun you were going to have ended up in your hurting someone else, that friend is NOT A FRIEND!

In these cases, they are demons!  And it needs to be removed so you can learn to live a happier, healthier life!

When a voice in your head tells you to do something that could hurt another person – that voice is a DEMON. 

When a voice causes you to drive away your friends and family – those who love you and those you care about, it is a DEMON. 

When it tells you it is going to show you how to get rich, famous, and be a celebrity – it is a DEMON. 

Beings of the Light won’t do that.  Beings that truly love you won’t set you up for pain and disaster.  Your angels and guides allow everyone to live their lives with free will – not coercion – and they won’t encourage you to do anything that might hurt another being or yourself!

High level demons start out friendly and helpful, pretending to care about you, but once they have latched onto you they don’t need to be sweet and kind to you any longer.

Every interaction between the demon and human is designed to allow the demon to control the person.  The deeper control the demon gets the easier it is for it to manipulate the human into doing what IT wants the human to do.

Anyone who thinks they are in control of a demon is lying to themselves – because humans cannot control them. People in power – politicians, political leaders, and religious leaders, all have very high levels of influence.

Regardless of where you live, when you encounter someone who is willing to put your life in danger, put the lives of your family at risk for any reason, when they ignore what are obviously BAD ACTS – that person is either heavily influenced or is possessed by demons.

People who have an influence level greater than 85% are great candidates for full body possession.

When an adult has that high of an influence level, this means they gave up their personal power and the demon is running the show.  Once their personal power is given to the demons their actions and choices and interactions with the people around them are all guided by the demon in control.

During the election process it is easy to spot people who are heavily influenced or possessed.  Regardless of what part they are playing in the political process, regardless of their stated motives – people who feed or play on other humans’ fears have a high level of possession.

Some symptoms of people who are heavily influenced or near full body possession include those whose focus is on winning at any cost, those who believe in dividing and conquering, individuals who become extremely irrational, and my two all time favorites, the most common symptoms that full body possession is close – the person who talks about someone is out to ‘get them’ and the person who talks about “them” or “those people” but won’t tell you who they are talking.

These individuals are so close to full body possession that immediate interaction needs to take place if there is to be any chance of avoiding catastrophic harm.

I had a young woman as a client for a while. She had gone out with some friends and as teenagers often are, they were stupid.  Someone pulled out a Ouija board and asked her if she would agree to be “the vessel to be used by whatever answered their call”.

Well, she did not believe anything would happen, so she said yes.  The mess she was left in caused her extreme mental and physical pain because she had agreed to let them in and they did not want to leave!

Stupidity is not going to keep you safe.  Don’t be stupid. 

Possessed people will not change regardless of what you say, what you do, or what type of prescription you put them on.  They will continue to do whatever despicable acts the demons tell them to do and they will watch while the demons take possession of their bodies and hurt others.  Only if the demons are removed will they return back to a semblance of themselves.

Know this – adults have the choice to stay possessed or to ask for help.  One must recognize their free will and if this is the experience they want to have, you cannot force them to change.

At this point, you can only protect yourself against the demon controlled person.

I don’t care if it is your parents, your siblings, extended family, your minister, your spouse or your child.  When someone is possessed they are no longer in control and demons do not care about you at all.

So there are a couple of final things I want to share with you.

  • Ghosts – discarnates, they love to be around people. Pay attention to what you are feeling when you are in your home, at work, and out doing stuff so you know if your energy is being stolen.
  • Physical sensations are key indicators of encounters with detritus. If you feel a cold spot, don’t stand in it – avoid the spot until you get someone in to close it out.
  • People who are possessed often want to touch others. Demons can be transferred to others through touch. So – be careful who you are touching.  What is more important – to have someone hugging and touching you or your being safe?
  • Don’t subject your children to people who want to hold or touch your child. You are the only one who can protect your children and if you don’t, their vulnerability will be multiplied tenfold.
  • Hollywood has simplified and glorified demon possession and hauntings. Real trauma – physical, mental, and emotional will be endured as a result of serious encounters – especially if you give your power away.
  • Your home is not a “safe place”, it is not a free zone that protects you from the detritus and darkness that exists in this world. There is NO safe place that will protect you from demons and detritus.
  • You are the only person who can and will take care of you! Take care who you listen to and what you belief so you don’t leave yourself defenseless
  • For those of you want to protect yourself, I recommend the daily burning of sage – not the herb sage that you cook with either. Sage helps to create a clear space which can give you time to do what you need to do as well as provide you with some level of peace. Sage is a good first step to helping yourself, but truly you should call a professional (like me) in to help you for a more permanent fix.  Don’t depend upon sage to remove anything attached to you nor will it keep something extremely powerful away.
  • Having crosses and bibles around you or on your body does NOT prevent demons from coming into your space or attaching to you.
  • Special holidays do not prevent them from attaching either.
  • And lastly, being one with the Light is important, but the Light won’t save you from your own stupid free will choices. Don’t do stupid stuff.

Demons and Possession – A Primer

Demons are thought to exist only in mythology; icons used to scare children into behaving “better” but not given any real consequence.  In early 2002 I was asked to do some work on a friend’s son who had been acting out.  He was 8 years old and my friend was concerned because he had been sent home from school after corning a girl during lunch and saying very inappropriate, sexual things to her.  This was not the first time in recent weeks where the child had begun to act out of character.  However, this incident concerned my friend greatly because what the child said was very adult in nature and he could not trace where the child would have learned what he said to the little girl.

So he asked me if there was anything I could do to help out.  I had been working extensively with ghosts/discarnates at that point and felt sure that it was something simple we could handle!  I noticed immediately that there was something strange in the child’s energy fields!  There was a darkness surrounding the channel at the top of his head to the upper chakra above his head, where the High Self is accessed.

I did not recognize the energy signature.  It did not feel familiar to me, but I knew instinctively this was “wrong”.  When Michael explained to me that it was a demon and showed me what we needed to do to take care of it, I was in shock.  I had not believed in demons or greater darkness at that point – I believed that all there was is Light.  I was not raised with a religious indoctrination of any sort, so it had taken a while for me to believe what I had been experiencing all my life!

There are thousands of different types of demons that attach to people of all ages, drawn to each person because of the emotional wounds that exist within that person’s being.  The wounds within a person send out a vibration and attract demons specific to that type of wound, so there are many, many nuanced forms of demons, different categories of demons depending upon their purpose, with some of the lesser ones no more intelligent than a 3 year old child.  The higher level demons are extremely clever and intelligent and extremely manipulative.

For the purpose of this article, we are going to explain two of the purposes they fulfill in their interactions with humans.

Humans exist in a reality that is based is a spectrum of emotional energetic frequencies.  This spectrum has both positive and negative ends.  Just as scientists help us understand that our world has polar opposites that repel, our actual spectrum has ends that repel each other.  But the truth of our reality is that without each end doing its job, our plane of existence would not exist.

So – we have Angelics who belong to the positive end and we have the detritus and the demons that belong to the negative end.  I have been asked many times why Michael does not eliminate Lucifer and the only answer I can give is the one I have been given.  He cannot eliminate her because they both have jobs specific to keeping this reality intact.

They are both multidimensional beings who have an aspect of themselves tied to this reality.  The part that exists here does their jobs and plays their part, but this is just a small piece of their entire existence.  When the Creator decides this particular reality is no longer needed, then they will have those parts released and returned to them – similar to what happens when humans pass on and return to their High Self.

On one end is Michael, slayer of demons and gatherer of souls.  On the other is Lucifer, she who is the keeper of the covenant.  Michael works with people, the Angelics, and with various energy groups such spirit guides and the Great White Brotherhood, while Lucifer monitors and maintains the demonic and detrimental corps which also interacts with humans.

I am extremely serious about this.  I realize that many people will have an instinctual withdrawing from the idea of these things, but I ask you to listen with your heart instead of to your head.  Your heart will tell you what is true and what is false.  And – it is natural to be afraid of that which you don’t know, but being afraid of demons is exactly what they need from you to be able to access your energy and your mind.

Demons have abilities that people don’t realize.  Demons will look into your minds and see all your fears and then they will use those fears against you.  Some people are subjected to the perception of physical pain to keep the demon secure in its ownership of its host. Some people are subjected to mental images to scare and torture them into submission. Others hear things that again, scare them and make them vulnerable.

Fear responses in humans create an ability for the demon to attach to the human and then slowly, over time, they will be able to pull themselves in further within the person’s energy layers.

Demons can scan the human blueprint and hunt for specific types of gifts that people possess.  Demons cause countless problems for people of every age group because they don’t care how old the human is – each one is an opportunity for the demon looking for their wound.  Thus, every human has demons attached to them regardless of their age.

Yes – everyone has demons attached to them = because every human has emotional wounds they have not healed, they have suppressed, and that they refuse to deal with or that they just plain don’t know how to heal.  Every wound sends out an energy signature that attracts the demons who are looking for that particular emotional wound.

One of the other jobs demons have is to stimulate and exacerbate those emotional wounds that they use to attach to humans; with this stimulation  they are able to bring the wound out of hiding, to force you to confront the pain, and then hopefully deal with the emotional wound in some manner.  You may choose to repress and suppress that emotional pain again, but if you do so, you will encapsulate the demon along with the wound!  Each time this process happens, all the demons attached are enclosed within your energy fields.

And so it repeats – them bringing the wound up for you to feel and you repressing the wound back down because you don’t want to deal with the pain.  Enclosing the demons inside of you, like the rings of the tree.  Cut the tree down and see the rings representing all the years the tree has been alive.  If you could be cut in the same way, you would see the wounds along with all the demons attached to you.

It is not pleasant to think about how many demons may be attached to you at this moment, but please don’t worry about turning into the little girl from the exorcist movies at any second.  That is just Hollywood nonsense and while possession is a valid concern, the majority of individuals today are functioning around the 70% possession level.

Just as functioning alcoholics have learned to function while inebriated – some to the degree that no one knows they are always drinking – most humans learn to function with demons attached to them because it starts when they are very young.

When wounds are not addressed, when someone is more focused on their pain instead of healing their pain, they will acquire more demons and detritus.  When one focuses on healing personal issues regardless of how emotionally painful they may be, a certain percentage of demons will be automatically released as the wound is healed.

It does no one any good to follow our society’s unspoken ban on expressing emotions, suppressing emotions and not displaying emotions.  Families who don’t talk about problems that exist within their family and then the children grow up to not talk about problems only continue this condition.  People who tell little boys, “boys don’t cry” or those who say to children you don’t see/hear/feel anything – it is just your imagination – are really doing a disservice to children.  Children are wide open and thus are very susceptible to demons because they don’t have the emotional knowledge that comes from experience.

I have a theory that a large percentage of individuals who are diagnosed as schizophrenic are really people who are clairaudient with their gifts wide open.  They hear voices in their head because of their gifts and then the demons amplify and multiply the voices because they will create the situation they want to create – a human who does not know how to ask for help and when he or she does, they are medicated up and thus become even more vulnerable to the demons.  Their attacks by demons are severe and constant – a never ending chorus of voices telling the they are worthless, unlovable, and a nobody.  Telling the person to do things they don’t want to do and then abusing them verbally when they finally comply.  That is what demons do – they abuse and torture people – demons don’t bring joy and happiness into lives.

And they LIE.  Some will try to get into your good graces in the beginning by telling you that they are a spirit guide sent to help you because you are special.  They will flatter you and play up to your insecurities and tell you that they love you and think you are wonderful.  Once you believe them, and allow them to stay in your energy fields, then they start not being so nice.  They will emotionally abuse you and convince you that others do not love you, isolating you away from those who do love you.

Some will convince you to do actions that they tell you will benefit you, but when it is said and done, you will have hurt other people in your quest to follow through.  When a being tells you to do anything that could be potentially harmful to another being that is a DEMON.  When a being tries to separate and divide you emotionally from those you care about, it is a DEMON.  And when it tells you it is going to show you how to get rich, famous, and be a celebrity – it is a DEMON.

I will also state this – people in power – politicians, political leaders, and religious leaders, all have very high levels of possession.  DC is a horrific energy location with tons of vortices all over the place.  It is a place steeped in demons and demon possessed people.   If you ever wonder why any politician or political leader fails to keep his or her promises then all you have to do is realize who that person is listening to.  In addition to those who are paying that politicians bills, I have viewed that politicians have a possession level of 95% or greater.  Which means they gave up their personal power of choice a long time ago to achieve their desires for power and influence.  Thus their actions and choices and interactions with all are guided by the demons that are attached to them.

 

During the election process it is easy to spot people who are possessed – regardless of what part they are playing in the political process, regardless of their stated motives – people who feed or play on other humans’ fears have a high level of possession.  People who are focused on dividing and conquering have a high level of possession.  People whose only focus is on what they get out of a situation have high levels of possession.

When you talk to people, look into their eyes.  You will feel immediately when a person has a high level of possession because you will instinctively know that what is staring back at you is not human.

I have encountered full body demonic possession multiple times in my life.  I want you to know that the person who is possessed by demons is truly no longer in charge and many times is no longer even inside the body – the demon has pushed them outside of the physical form into the etheric so it could take full control.  Humans are truly ignorant in today’s world on how to navigate the ether and thus will be paralyzed with fear – which suits the demons’ desires.

In the beginning stages of full possession, the demons’ control is temporary, but each time the demon takes over it will stay in physical control for longer and longer periods of time.  It takes a tremendous amount of energy to stay in a human body and the human body is extremely stressed when a demon possesses it.  Over time the demon learns to use the human’s physical energy and the body develops a greater tolerance for the demon using it, but in the beginning it is always temporary.

So what happens during the possession process to the mind of the person who normally lives in the body?  As we stated, the person’s identity is shoved into the ether for the time of the possession.  Sometimes the person comes back to consciousness without realizing what took place while they were out of body.  Sometimes they were able to see all that took place, but they disassociate themselves from it because “they did not do it”.

Well…I have a mixed opinion about that.  They may not have committed the acts the demon did with their body, but they gave over control of their body to the demon.  It is not a quick process either.  The demon starts out friendly, helpful, caring but it is not an act that can continue long.  Every interaction between the demon and the human allows the demon to further insert themselves energetically into the humans energy system.  The deeper the demon control gets the easier it is for the demon to manipulate the human into doing what IT wants the human to do, thus further enmeshing the demons energy with the humans.

Demons will cut off the ability for a person to receive guidance and energetic help from their high self, from their spirit guides, and from any angelics who have chosen to assist the person.  The demon will separate the human from those the human had cared about because it does not want the human to trust anyone but the demon.

BUT I WANT YOU TO KNOW, THE PERSON CAN NEGATE THIS AT ANY TIME.

Yes – they can.  It takes strength of purpose and focused will, but a person can release themselves from the physical body possession by taking control.

This is not easy.  Just as any addicted individual has cravings for their delusion of choice, people can become addicted to a demons’ energy and interactions.  Demons can punish their host by causing pain throughout their body, they can make them visualize things that are painful to them to see.

But again – it returns to the person’s choice of free will and how they want to proceed.

There exists a small percentage of individuals out there who enjoy their “friends” who tell them what to do – for any number of reasons.  These people will not change regardless of what you say, what you do, or what type of prescription you put them on.  They will continue to do whatever despicable acts the demons tell them to do and they will watch while the demons take possession of their bodies and hurt others.  It is their choice.  One must accept that these type of individuals too are having a human experience and sometimes it is necessary to have people do bad things for others to appreciate and realize the good that can also be done.

I am not condoning – I never condone demonic possession.  If they come to me to get better then I help them, but I cannot force help onto any adult who does not want it. Cases with children under the age of 18 are different, for their parent is their guardian still and I can work with them then.  BUT if the child continues their actions or chooses to resume their actions once they hit the age of 18 then it is their responsibility and the parents have no say.

I have had a number of cases in the last 10 years where a kid went to college and experimented with recreational drugs.  In each of these cases, the kid was given something “extra” in their drugs without being told they were getting it.  Often this “extra” was acid.  This something “extra” sent them out into the etheric layers which is not a trip that should be made by the uneducated..

When a human presence goes into the etheric without any form of protection, they are like a light to which huge moths will be drawn.  They are vulnerable and unable to prevent demons and detritus from attaching to them.  These kids ended up with huge, life crippling situations for they found themselves unable to cope with the responsibilities of college, of holding a job, or for some, some even getting out of bed at all.  All of them ended back home in a semi conscious state of being, because they would drink or drug themselves up so they would no longer feel so acutely what had been done and what was continuing to be done to them.

There are steps one can take to free oneself from these negative vibrational beings, but again it takes force of will and strength of character.  It can be unpleasant in many ways and one must be committed to work through perceived sensations of pain.  At the time I was brought in to help these individuals, they were not in a place where they wanted to be healed and cleansed.  So I did what I could and then gave each of them the shielding exercise and instructions on how to call upon Archangel Michael for assistance.

It is a sad thing when people hand over their personal power to others.  I had a client a few years back who contacted me through a referral situation.  Her experience was not unique in any way, but that did not make it less sad.  She was young – just out of high school.  She had some ‘friends’ who had her spend the night. They pulled out a Ouiji board and called on spirits to come to them.  She did not believe in any of these things, so when they turned around and said they wanted her to be a vessel for the spirits to possess,  she foolishly agreed.

Not believing in something is not a defense against what can happen.  A token you wear around your neck, a statue in your room, and symbol tattooed on your shoulder – none of these things are going to prevent you from being attacked when you agree to it.  Just because you are home does not protect you either – there is no place that is immune from demons in our world.

I had three sessions with this child.  Each time – as soon as I started to surround her with the vibration of Light – she would begin to scream that she was on fire.  She was not, of course, but the demons were punishing her for trying to get rid of them.  We had several conversations about this, but she was weak in character and in mind.  So I ended the work.  I did as I did with all clients and provided her with the shielding exercise and steps to take to help herself when she was ready, but I don’t know that she ever will be ready.

I had a client recently who got herself into a similar situation, but her situation was created because she wanted to “meet up” with someone who had died.  She was not an energy worker and did not believe in demons so it did not occur to her that something bad could happen to her, which of course it did.

Why she thought this would be a good idea I have no idea, but the end result was a possession situation where she was receiving physical pain from the demons as well as hearing voices in her head.  I explained to her what she had done and the results of what she had done and she insisted that the being she had met with would never do her any harm, it loved her.

I explained to her that beings that are of light and love never meet you in the ether.  Just as a boy who loves and respects you does not meet you in dark alleyways, your angelics and guides are all about what is GOOD FOR YOU.  They are not into putting you into a position of vulnerability.

Again – just because you don’t believe in something does not mean you cannot come into harm’s way.  You will be damaged.  I have worked with many individuals to remove curses that had been laid upon them because they had pissed off someone whose family or friend dabbled in “dark magic”.  Well, energy work could be called magic by some, I suppose, and demons definitely will flock to where they are called to be.

When I do this type of work, whether it is helping someone reverse a curse, clearing a haunted house, or working with a possessed person I have to be very careful that I am not vulnerable.  I am very good at what I do, but hubris in this environment quickly leads to downfalls.

I have an associate who I do work on regularly.  She is a shaman and has worked with clients for over a decade.  She is skilled and experienced but she still calls me up regularly to help her because she has become contaminated with “something” from a client.

I help as I am best able, but we are each responsible for our free will choices.  I cannot help you reverse choices you freely made completely.  You will always have to live with what happened to you – you won’t go back to a state of happy ignorance.  And some people never feel physically 100% again.

I have been fortunate to encounter many lovely people through my interest and work in the energy community.  People shun me at times because they don’t want to believe that all is not Light.  I worked with a man who also desired to think only of the light, only with the eye towards the Love aspect.  He did some work with someone of great renown who asked him if he wanted to try something of which he had no knowledge.  He placed his trust in the practitioner and agreed to allow the work to be done on him.  This ended badly for him, for what the practitioner did was funnel detrimental beings into the person, which then ruined his life for many years with physical pain, psychological torture, and he almost committed suicide from the multiple attacks taking place simultaneously.

Unfortunately, while there may exist people with good intentions, one must ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS be very specific about who one works with energetically and you must always know what you are going to be doing with that person.  If someone asks you to do something you don’t know about – don’t just ask what it is and go along with it – for it is YOUR responsibility to be aware of all the facets of what you are agreeing to.

If you agree to something, even if you are lied to about that “something”, the end result is that you are fully responsible for what happens to you.  No, it may not seem “fair” but there is no fair – there is only free will.

So what I want to leave you with is this.  Hollywood has both simplified and glorified demon possession and hauntings.  Real trauma can be endured as a result of foolishly agreeing to allow some being or someone to interact with you without your knowing all the facts around the situation.

I strongly recommend that each person think about what they are agreeing to do every day and realize that you are the only defense you have against that which wants to use and corrupt you.

Being one with the light is important, but the Light won’t save you from your free will choices.  In these cases you need to know someone who knows what they are doing. That’s why I have started putting this information out on the internet – people need the help.
