During the course of our paranormal investigations we are often asked how to get rid of a negative spirit. The unfortunate answer is that there are things you can try but nothing is guaranteed. We had a previous article on our site “How to Perform a “Cleansing Ritual” To Get Rid Of Negative Energy” in which we discussed smudging but I wanted to add a little more to that.
My family once lived in an apartment that was seemingly haunted and my partner was even physically attacked; I however was rarely bothered by them. Try as I might, I could not get my partner to stand up for herself. The spirits were basically like school yard bullies and they simply had her terrified!
One of the biggest things you can do to help yourself is demand the spirit to leave. Let them know that the home is yours, they need to leave and you will not tolerate seeing them, hearing them or being bullied by them.Personally, I used to scream and yell at them; I treated them as I would a person I was in a confrontation with. Sometimes it seemed a bit odd to be screaming and yelling at the air, waving my fists, but I soon realized that they didn’t bother me because they knew they had no right to do so and that I would not tolerate being messed with in the least.
You must stand up for yourself. You can have your home blessed and cleansed until the cows come home but if you don’t stand up for yourself they will only continue bothering you.
