You glimpse something weird, odd, just not right,
out of the corner of your eye. A almost solid
shadow. Is it an animal, a person, a demon from
the very depths of hell? You say that you hear
strange phantom sounds in the dead of night, voices
, disjointed music, when you know there should
be none. Your hair stands on end and goose pimples
raise on your arms. A cold haunted chill runs
down your spine for you feel that someone, or
something is watching you! Or worse, about to
do you some evil deed. Looks like you are very
well being haunted!
So, what do you
do? Where do you go for help? Who will you call
for help? Well, for starters make sure your problem
has a paranormal origin not a mental one.
Hauntings often occur with much more frequency
than the general public is actually aware of.
They affect newly constructed homes and buildings,
private and public premises, just as they can
old historical homes. While many people don't
relish sharing their life, home or job with a
genuine ghostly haunting.
New Condos built in older buildings tend to be
very haunted because of what the haunted history
of the building holds. The same theory applies
to vacant land that has not been built on for
many years. It is usually very haunted as will
soon be the new construction that is built on
Many people learn to just live with it ( their
personal hauntings) and they sometimes enjoy the
supernatural world coinciding with their own.
Many personal hauntings can be somewhat fun...
But too often so many others can be a down right
haunted hell. Too many people have their hands
full with daily negative experiences to add night
time horrors to their life. Serious hauntings
do involve many horrible sleepless nights.
Poltergeist-related cases can create varied dangerous
circumstances though there is evidence to suggest
it might be the living person's psychic energy
that is causing the haunting problem. This is
found to be especially true if there are adolescents
in the home.
In any cases of probable hauntings, you first
have to rule out all naturally occurring normal
physical causes. Ask a friend to help you document
the haunting (in this case, the more skeptical
the person the better). Also consider all immediate
physical sources such as settling foundations,
rattling window panes, air conditioning or heating
system. Wind drafts, plumbing (old and new), animals,
and even common pests like mice or rats, and squirrels
or birds in the attic can be the root cause of
many an otherwise terrifying occurrence. Malfunctioning
smoke alarms, televisions, radios and other electrical
appliances must be eliminated as sources before
you settle for paranormal ones.
Once you're 100% convinced there is something
else in your world that should not be there, try
to face it, confront it. Many psychics have told
me the right thing to do is just claim your space.
Clean it, change it, make it your own. I have
been told this is what is called haunting your
own space. Another thing to do is openly, loudly
ask the ghost to leave, and do it as nicely as
you can. Just say "Its time for you to move
on." These are the easiest words you can
say. Don't get tough unless it gets tough with
you is the safest rule of thumb. If your unwanted
guest does something hard to tolerate or ignore
then lose your temper and with all your anger
tell it "GET OUT NOW!"
Another direct approach is to contact your local
clergy. Many still come to bless homes and people.
Catholic priests regularly do house blessings
which they view as quite legitimate procedures.
So if your haunting is getting bad or worse and
truly you're that desperate, ask for a house blessing.
Often it does do the job.
So, you say that you're not a strong religious
person . Spiritualist churches are very open and
helpful to discussing and sorting out ghost stories
and can usually put you in touch with some very
reputable ghost hunters or paranormal Investigator.
This is what you should do if you think you are
haunted. Documented records are the key. Haunting
times, dates and occurrences is what you should
log. Keep a haunted diary of events and urge others
living/working on the premises to be forthcoming
about their experiences. Most importantly, note
when the phenomena started. Did it begin when
you started moving the furniture, or when you
painted the kitchen? When a spouse or relative
died? Or when you brought home a new pet or piece
You should research your home or place of work.
Contact the local historical society, look up
ownership records of the house or building, check
back through old newspaper files in the State
archives or Public Library, look for books dealing
with ghost stories and local folklore (often these
tales are grounded in some factual event). See
what you can find out. Knowledge of your surroundings
not only give clues but are the key.
If you're actually really happy to, learn to
live with your ghost. You might even notice once
you decide it's no big deal that ghostly phenomena
will die down and become less frequent, or just
Author and psychic Denise Linn, in her excellent
book Space Clearing (Ebury Press, 2000) has a
few de-haunting tips. She says you should give
your house a thorough spring cleaning, remove
all mess, actually clutter. Salt, too, is an ancient
cleansing ingredient. Sprinkle ample amounts of
salt throughout every room, don't Forget the corners
and closets too. Leave the salt for 24 hours to
allow it to absorb any 'negative energies', then
simply vacuum or sweep up and discard. Start with
a fresh pallet, that is the rule. Make it new
Claim it as your own. Daily bring in fresh flowers,
place them around the house. This so often brings
in a good vibe and one of growth and good Feng
Shui. Smudge sticks made of sage are an ancient
remedy to negative space and spirit activities.
Actually praying out loud appealing to your God(s)
(depending on your beliefs) for assistance with
your goal in mind that is removing said spirit,
Ghost, entities or negative energies. Burning
scented candles, or wiping everything with cleansing
essential oils like Bergamot, Lemon Grass, Peppermint,
Fir Needle, or the Australian indigenous favorite
Many of these specific cleansing steps do so
have clear psychological benefits, improving your
mood and creating a more overall general positive
Check your local library or esoteric, New Age
or Wiccan bookshop for further involved information.
Or of Course your final option, why not make
a profit of it and register your home on the ghost
registry and conduct private haunted ghost tours,
or nightly seances. A friend of mine opened their
beautiful home to the public as a Haunted B&B.
Many have done it and many ghosts or hauntings
sometimes stop because of the inflow of new energy.
If all else does fail, write up your haunted
ghost story, get some good pictures, videos and
documentation. You never know, you could be on
the best sellers list. Or call someone in haunted
Hollywood and sell them the movie rights. You
never know, until it happens. But you, and the
Ghost might make a fortune.
