House Clearing for Ghosts and Spirits

There are lots of reasons to do an energetic house clearing for your home now and then. While many will want to do a house clearing because they intuit that their homes are haunted, others are moving into houses that are new to them, and desire to remove all the energy of the previous owners. Transitions in one’s life are another good time to do a house clearing, such as after a divorce, or even after an unpleasant argument, or if someone has died.

Here are guidelines for a six-step house clearing. It only takes about ten minutes, and you don’t need anything except a clear mind:

Repeat this process about twice weekly for a few weeks. Doing this process at bedtime may give you a better night’s sleep.

1. Using your imagination, put a grounding cord of light on your entire house or apartment at the floor level. Extend it to the center of the Earth.

2. Visualize a golden sun about two feet in diameter in the center of your home.

3. Expand the golden sun gradually until it fills and surrounds your entire home space.

4. Surround the golden sun with a four-to-eight-foot-thick wall of violet light.

5. Affirm: “This ball of violet light will remain intact until I do this process again. So be it.”

6. Next say this invocation: “In the name of the I Am That I Am, I command that this home and grounds be filled with golden light from the City of Light where the Ascended Masters dwell. Only that which is divine may enter. All that is less than divine, which is illusion, must leave now. This will remain so. So be it.”

Fascinating, ghosts and ghost like entities are often unnerving for many. Lindsay S, while you are concerned about demons appearing as ghosts of loved certainly has no clear definition of precisely what happens after death. What if the ghost that appears is not a demon, but simply a real and non-threatening ghost?

I know someone who is so constantly worried about ‘the demons out there’ because he read some book and saw something on YouTube... but unless one is living in the Amityville house of horrors or something like that...I can't be worried about demons out to get me. I will just aim a skunk cabbage and a Durian fruit at it and hope for the best. They can't be any worse than some of the politicians out there in the world.

There are no doubt some ghosts in the apartment building where a friend lives as it is a fairly old building and a number of people have passed on while in their sleep from old age or even ill health. If the previous person living there was a pleasant person, why would one want to 'cleanse' their spirit? What about pets, some of them purrhaps could return for a spirited rub and purring session. Who knows?

i do very similar to this by just asking the ALMIGHTY to surround us with his light and love and that no other can enter ever.

This article is deeply concerning, Demons are masquerade artists. In other words, they can disguise themselves. In Paul’s second letter to the Corinthians (2 Corinthians 11:14-15), we are told how these creatures are able to appear or disguise themselves as what Paul calls “angels of light” and “servants of righteousness.” Because of this ability, it is certainly reasonable to assume that a demon could in fact appear to someone as the spirit of a deceased person–especially that of a loved one–if it helped the demon to carry out its evil purposes.

Through most of my life, I have sensed spirits. Small things like just knowing they are there, but over time, my 'gift' has grown to where I could actually visualize what these spirits look like. Typically, I see them as if it was their every day deal. Just walking through the room like they lived there, but recently (over the last year or so) I have felt a much much stronger sense of these spirits. Most of which are positive energies, but unfortunately those dont last long, nor do they linger. The negative energies on the other hand, are very strong most of the time, and seem to always hang around, ultimately having a negative effect on me. Within the last week, I've had some phenomenal experiences. I felt a very negative, paranoid, worried, anxious spirit that would pace through my house. I saw her as a frail, ragged woman who hadnt slept in days. She looked very very worried, and you could actually hear her footsteps as she paced. Shortly after sensing and visualizing her, however, I felt a much more positive, brighter spirit come through with a very motherly, nurturing nature that was very protective of me. I felt like she had an urgent need to hug me, or comfort me. I felt her very close to me, like she was trying to comfort me, then suddenly felt as if she was chasing away the negative spirit. It made me very emotional, and I started to cry. After that, the negative spirit seemed to hang by the door, and mess with the knob and the chain. I tried sage but she seems angry
