Horror films and serials have completely biased our minds on the true nature of spirits and ghosts. The larger than life depiction of feelings experienced in real life make us view the problem as much larger than it actually is.
Spirit attachments can best be understood as virus in a computer or bacteria of an infectious disease corrupting our body mechanism. It is parasitical in nature as it consumes on the body’s energies for its survival.
A person taken over by a spirit means that his thinking is dominated by another person's wisdom.The person cannot think from his own belief systems but gets controlled by thinking of the spirit , be it from a dead or alive person. The spirit attachment means an attachment on our mind. If the body is hampered, it is only because the mind is controlled by a dominating personality. the personality can control through abusing, emotionally or physically, challenging, threatening, nagging , cribbing etc. Essentially, you start obeying the other person simply to prove yourself good to that person or because you are afraid of that person's energy. You become too afraid of being yourself, of failing, of having your won mind. The spirit attacks by creating self guilt, a sense of low self worth, anger and irritation with the world.
Spirits get attached to our soul. Our soul is the host which is often displaced because of the spirit attack. Our soul is an entity made of life-force energy of the Creator. It is like a filament of a bulb. Its light reaches all part of the body and makes the body come alive with soul radiance.
Each soul incarnates in a physical body to achieve a certain purpose of life. When a spirit from a different body enters our body, it imposes its life purpose on ours and creates an anarchy in our thinking. We get distracted from our life purpose or what we are meant to create to be happy
“In each life on Earth, we, as souls, plan to achieve a specific purpose. The purpose of life involves focusing energies on creating a particular kind of physical reality, which would help us attain happiness in that life. Different souls have different life purposes and they are born with a skill set necessary to attain that purpose.
For example, one person may have a desire to be a dancer while another may desire to be an engineer. In the process of the pursuit of these desires, the soul moves towards attaining its life purpose.” – In Search Of Happiness , Chapter 1 – Basic concepts of soul evolution.
The spirit enters the body and tries to take it over. It tries to make the body move in a direction which achieves the spirit’s life purpose than its own life purpose. The spirit in the person makes him feel always mentally under conflict, tense, half dead , unable to achieve anything in life like a failure etc. The spirit’s negativity spreads over the person’s body and mind and makes him feel as negative about himself or herself.
The spirits may force the person into actions which he may not, otherwise, do by making him feel worried about dire consequences if they don’t do the negative acts.
Our body is like a house in which our soul lives. A soul is a bound spirit ,i.e., it has a body and an identity attached with the body. A free spirit is free of the identity of the body. It moves like an energy on its own crossing limitations of time and space , as they should, on earth.
Spirits are essentially made of non-physical matter. They are like air. Hence, they operate by holding the person’s mind captive. They cannot move the person’s body or harm his body in any way, physically. They can only harm through mental co-ercion. Some spirits make the persons they are attached to so negative that they are forced into committing suicides. In fact, most people who commit suicides get attached to other people who are in a similar difficult situation of life and tempt them to give u on life as well. Such attachments can be very easily released in hypnotic regressions.
Spirits of dead people are usually easy to release through following steps of a spirit release regression. The spirit has to be imagined as going into sunlight at the point of its death. After the spirit of the dead person goes away, the person gets back his zeal to fight through life’s obstacles. The spirits also leave when the person goes through a near death experience but then the spirit may not go into the light but get attached to another person. Tantriks beat up a person to release spirits only to scare the spirit away but the spirit can come back if it is not sent into God’s light.
Beating up the person is , therefore, not a rational way to release spirits. Usually, spirits have to be rationally convinced to go back to where they came from, in the celestial dimensions. They have to be informed that their own body is gone and they cannot achieve any purpose of life through staying on in another person’s body.
The process of spirit release is given in detail in the books IN SEARCH OF HAPPINESS and REDEFINING HAPPINESS, a soul’s perspective.
“The process involved in going back to the celestial realm
At the point of death, the soul energy gets out of the body and sees a light somewhere around it. The soul feels pulled by the light, as if somebody is calling it back.
It responds to the call, revolves in a circular motion to raise its frequency, throws off all that negative energy which is dense and enters the gate of Light. When the spirit rejoins the light, it ends its present life journey on Earth.
The call from the celestial dimensions, comes in an energy form, i.e. it is felt not heard. So, the soul energy can respond to it only when it feels free at the moment of death. It cannot respond to the energy call if it is too heavily stuck with its own thoughts.
Hence, this rejoining the Light after death doesn’t always happen. If death is sudden, as in an accident, illness, war or murder, the person may not realize that he is dead and hence may not go into the light. Also, if the person has several emotional attachments on Earth which he does not feel ready to let go, it may not want to leave. For example, if the death is unexpected, the person may have responsibilities of family, business etc which he wants to wind up before leaving. Thus, it may not leave for the Light when called. Then, the soul may get fragmented and parts of its energy may remain on Earth.
When the spirit remains stuck on the Earth plane, it ceases to live or age. It just gets frozen at the point of time when it died, with the same thought which it died with. The thought it died with keeps repeating itself. “, IN SEARCH OF HAPPINESS – Ch 11- Love Heals
It is very important to release attachments of all close relatives, parents and friends who have died in your past, if you have no hope or desires left from life. It means that you have a dead soul energy inside you which wants to be released as it cannot have an desire to live left, as it is already dead. The spirit may not have left when it died as it may have had unfinished work from life left . But, it has to realize that it cannot achieve that work till it crosses over to the Light. Then , the spirit can assign that work to its own future incarnation who has the same life purpose. The ties of family and work have to be released after death as the spirit embraces the Light again. It is like quitting a game and going back home to rest. The spirit can always come back when it is cleansed and rejuvenated , in a new incarnation or in a parallel body.
As long as the spirit attachment and the body it resides in have the same life purpose, the spirit can become one with the soul of the body. This scenario usually occurs when our past life spirits are attached with us. These spirits make us repeat mistakes and failures of past lives but can be trained to think in a new direction.
“The spirit in a body is called a soul. The soul gets its identity from being in a body but the spirit has an identity much greater than the identity of the body.
The eternal spirit incarnates as a soul in a body to learn lessons of soul evolution. The learning, evolving soul has to come on Earth for a direct contact with negativity. Negative energies cannot be experienced in the spiritual dimension.
The soul attends theoretical classes in celestial dimensions about the kinds of energies it has to master to channelize creation in physical dimensions. Then, it comes to Earth to apply that knowledge.
In the physical dimension, viz. Earth, the soul has to create happiness in a given frame of circumstances. The purpose of incarnating in a physical body is to learn how to create in the physical realm within limits of time and space.
When the soul is able to attain its life purpose in a way that it can feel positive, it reaches a higher level of soul evolution.
Earth is like a school for the soul where each life is an exam.
The soul has to evolve to a higher positive frequency in order to pass the exam within a specific time viz. a life time. If the soul fails to create happiness within its life-time, it has to repeat the test. The soul lives a number of life-times wherein it tries to create happiness by overcoming gradations of difficulties. “REDEFINING HAPPINESS – techniqu1 18 – spirit release steps
Spirit attachments need not be only from people who are dead because a spirit is more powerful than its body, by its nature if being . The soul of a living person can also fragment and get attached to another person as a spirit virus.
The virus spirits are those which come in as thieves. They can be from people who are dead or alive but these spirits are always negative. They try to eat the fruits of another person’s efforts through black magic or using negative magnetism. The spirit which takes over your energies makes your effort pay money to its own body , which may be far from you. So, if you have spirit attachment, you may be working very hard, but all your success, credit and fame would go to another person whose spirit is attached to you like a parasite.
It is often more difficult to release spirits from people who are alive than people who are dead because people who are alive are attached in your body for an unethical reason. They are not there because they are homeless. They are there because they want your home.
For example, if we imagine that our soul is like a person sitting in chair in the centre of our house, as the director- owner of its house ; then the spirit comes in without permission , as a bully, throws the soul off the chair and sits in its place in the centre of the house.'
Then it makes all decisions for this person’s life by controlling his thinking. It is as if this spirit has the remote of the overthrown person’s life.
Usually, such spirit attachments are from overbearing parents like mothers who dominate their daughter’s minds, jealous friends who want to be in your energy, revengeful lovers of your spouse who want to take your place, dominating colleagues who steal your light to feel powerful, a dominating husband or wife who wants your help but does not want to help in return, overbearing children, lovers who have ditched in the past or any demonic entity which wants your body to work so that it lives a luxurious life, but does not want to give you credit or acknowledgement in return. (A demon is defined as an entity which does not do a fair energy exchange and hence blocks life force from flowing. The demonic being is abusive emotionally, narrow in vision, spreads fear of survival and destructive energy as opposed to an angel or God, who is a positive life force and spreads hope in dreams, creative zeal, happiness and justice. The demon seeks to kill desire to live whereas the God force seeks to revive the happiness of being alive.)
If you have a keen desire to die because of boredom, frustration or hopelessness, you would either have a dead entity in you or a demonic attachment of someone alive and overbearing in your life. These demonic people have their own body alive which feels powerful because its soul fragment controls your body. However, the demonic people are extremely negative , and are always unhappy with their own lives.
These spirits are very difficult to release as they are very greedy, very negative and have an artificial faith in God. The pray to God but do not believe in God or happiness or a positive world. They are disconnected from God in their own bodies and need your soul energy for their fame , money , power or success. They make you feel inferior by abusing you from within and from outside. The demonic entities work by making you feel like a failure by the power of negative words , thoughts and transferred guilt.
Such spirits can only be controlled through taking your own power back by asking God for help. You have to see through these people in your life who pretend to help you in areas where you do not need help, only to make you feel inferior. They do the work which you can do without and then call you lazy because you did not do it yourself, thus, making you feel guilty. They also keep complaining how much you have abused them in the past and how much they have sacrificed their life to help you.
Meditation helps to take back the control of your life. It helps to imagine breathing in and out of your stomach and imagine your own soul going and sitting in the central chair of your body. You have to ask whoever is sitting there to get up and leave even if it appears impolite. Also, you have to imagine your own light spreading all over your body. Cutting emotional cords with the person mentally and seeing his own energy enter his body and your energy come back to your body, often , may be needed.
However difficult your life may appear, you have to be aware that your unhappiness can only be deleted by restoring back your positivity.
Smiling and laughing help release positive hormones in the body. Hence, smiling often, without reason while feeling your smile in the centre of your being also helps in freeing yourself from the clutches of negative people’s thoughts. The more you can feel yourself as a soul in your body, the more you will be aware of your body.
As you focus on feeling your soul energy travelling in different parts of your body, by being in your body, the more you would feel empowered as a soul. You would also be healed from problems like excess weight, excess anxieties, headaches and diseases with no known reason. The spirit control does not leave overnight but as you keep practicing taking charge of your own body, with deliberate mind control, your own life comes back in your own control.
