So, after a very long hiatus and realizing, due to the many wonderful questions and comments I’ve continued to receive on this blog over the years, I’ve decided to come back and continue writing here. If you’re interested, I have written five paranormal novels since I’ve been away. Have a peek here. :)
The most frequent question I get asked to answer is regarding how to rid a house of unwanted spirits. This can be a tricky situation, mostly because regardless of how hard we work to pay for our rents and mortgages–the dead don’t care who owns it. They think they do. And really, who are we to evict someone–or something–that was there first?
A spirit is no more than a person without a body. Period. They still have all the emotions, the feelings, and often, the beliefs that they carried with them while they were alive. They believe that your house is still their house. They believe that when you are renovating your house, you’re ruining their house. To them, you are the unwanted occupant. There are ghosts, though, that are merely curious of you, interested in your day to day living. Just like any living voyeur, they are content to simply watch you throughout your day, doing your day to day routine. Unfortunately for us, they’re also interested in us while we sleep.
To rid yourself of an unwanted ghost, you have to think like a ghost. What does he/she want? If you know what time frame they died in, what are the belief systems that are hampering their ascent to the next realm? Be compassionate. Learn empathy for your unseen guest. In that way, you can determine what they might need from you. Ask yourself how you might be as a ghost. Would you haunt your home? Why?
As always, I welcome your comments and questions.
Hugs, Danielle :)
I made a new blog so I could update my paranormal books.
The Prologue from my new book is over there!
