4. Make a choice
Once you become sure that there is something supernatural going on in your house, you need to decide what you want to do next. Do you want to live with a ghost in your house? Do you want to move out? Or do you want to get rid of the spirits? Although it can be terrifying to think about living in a house that’s haunted by dead people or even demonic entities, you’d be surprised at how many people choose to co-exist with spirits. Why? Because most spirits are not evil or vindictive.
Some are just stuck here unable to move while others just want to keep doing what they did when they were alive, taking care of their families. In this case, your family. However, you do need to set some ground rules and boundaries if you plan on sharing your house with unwanted guests, even if reluctantly.
No matter what you choose to do, make sure you are not afraid of whatever is going on in the house. IF you are facing an evil entity then it will feed off your fear. However, most spirits are not entirely good or bad. And there is no real reason for you to be scared even if you are experiencing a haunting unless you experienced physical assault.
5. Talk to the spirits
If you decide to live with ghosts in your house, then it can be a good idea to have a direct conversation with the spirit according to many paranormal researchers and psychic mediums. Be firm in your statement with the spirits and set your boundaries. However, make sure you are not aggressive in your tone or behavior. Talk to the entity in your house and voice your intentions. It is possible to live peacefully in a house you think is haunted.
However, if you want the presence to leave, then you can be assertive and ask them to leave in a non-aggressive manner. It can also be a good idea to speak with the name of God or whatever you have faith in. It could be Christianity or any other religion you follow and believe in. Or it can be your own self-belief. Use that energy of your faith while speaking with the presence as it will make the conversation more powerful. This will also help you feel less scared and help you feel that you are in control of your house once again.
6. Contact paranormal researchers
Once you have ruled out all logical and rational explanations for what you are experiencing, you have tried communicating with the spirits in your house with no success and you are convinced your house is really haunted, it’s time for you to call the experts. You can find paranormal research groups in your region or you can search online. However, make sure they are genuine and professional who take a scientific as well as spiritual approach in their dealings.
There is no point in hiring a bunch of guys how just want to do some ghost hunting. Check out their credentials, years of practical experience, expertise and testimonials, do some online research about the researchers and once you are convinced they are legitimate and can help you, contact them right away. They can not only help you understand what exactly is going on, but can also help you get your life back.
7. Cleanse your house
Making a presence to leave your property can be highly challenging. You may ask them to leave but many entities might not be cooperative. Ghosts can be highly territorial. This is why conducting a cleansing ceremony by burning sage is often advisable. However, you need to make sure you do this in the presence of a medium or an expert as the process needs to be done properly and may even take several days to completely cleanse your house. You smudge white sage, burn frankincense, sprinkle holy water and even burn asafoetida as an incense, which is highly powerful.
You can find instructions for performing cleansing ceremonies online if you wish to do this by yourself. You can start from the top of your house like the attic and move through every corner and room ending at the front door. It is also a good idea to say a prayer while doing the cleansing ritual. However, you may need to conduct this ritual more than once to see noticeable results.
However, it is mandatory that you do this properly and carefully. Sage can be very powerful and it may create an energy vacuum in your house. If you do use sage to cleanse your home, then make sure you fill it up with a positive and holy energy immediately after you are done with the ritual. Fill your house with your positive intentions and love before anything negative can enter the vacuum. You may also ask a priest to bless your house and your family members.
