Updated on November 14, 2012

Banishing Evil or Unwanted Energies

Is your home or some other domicile in which you are active giving you an ominous feeling? Have you experienced any strange sensations like hearing your name being called or been witness to odd occurrences such as shadowy movements out of the corner of your eye? Are there out of place objects and phantom sounds like heavy walking or the sound of furniture being moved? Do you feel as though you are being watched or even stared closely at, have you ever smelled a foul odor such as the smell of decay? Have you felt an isolated spot of heat or of cold move down your arm or linger around your head? Has anyone been touched or physically attacked by an unseen aggressor?

If any of the things above describe what you have experienced then you have come to the right place. Here you can learn to rid yourself of these energies and repel them back to whence they came. You will learn to cleanse the place with positive energy and intention and push back the darkness with feelings of happiness, peace, and love. Darkness cannot exist without light; it is after all only the absence for light, so we must learn to fill our lives with good and peaceful ideals, morals, principles, and practices.

Environmental Recordings and Psychic Sensitivity (Residual Haunting Phenomena):

Our environment can hold residual energies which play back powerful emotional human experiences that once took place in the past. It is as if the very fabric of matter can hold psychic echoes or imprints that our minds can be sensitive to. Often we may be re-experiencing someone else past experience that has just been recorded into the quantum fabric of the environment.

  • A: Smudge the dwelling using white sage or have a release of the dead ceremony or a crossing over ceremony with a spiritual practitioner or member of a religious organization present.

Keeping Your Home Spiritually Clean:
Every time someone gets emotionally over-charged they are radiating powerful feelings of intention into the environment. These emotions can create energy storms within the quantum fluctuations of the matter existing around the living person. These imprints vibrate with a residual energy wave.
