A brief overview to ward off evil spirits

I wanted to do a quick note about how to ward off evil because I have received many emails from people who are afraid. They worry about dark entities stalking their homes. They fear curses and the effects of bad mojo. They want to do something about their fear, but they feel helpless to protect themselves.

If this sounds familiar, then listen up. You need to know that you are more powerful than you think. You can repel negativity.There are many ways to go about it. Pick the method which feels right for you.

You can picture a bright white light which will engulf evil. This can be a very strong form of protection. The more you believe, the stronger it is. This really works, so don’t be afraid to try it when you feel scared.

If you are a person of faith, you can always call on a higher power to protect you. All you have to do is think it, and spirit protectors will be there to help you. You are never alone if darkness is near you. Positive entities will be near too. Remember you are not alone. You are not abandoned.

It is important that you control your fear. Evil feeds on fear. If you are afraid, it will make things worse. Your worry will give bad things power. So you must take your power back. Don’t be afraid. As difficult as it sounds, do your best not to react with fear when strange things happen. This can be one of the hardest things to do. However, it is important.

If you feel that you must have something in your hands to protect you, you can always wear religious items or get holy water. Some feel that burning sage cleanses the air. If that brings you comfort, then by all means, do it (but take precautions so you don’t burn your house!)  Whatever stabilizes you in a healthy way is fine.

For those who believe in the power of crystals, amethyst is said to increase intuition. Some may not know that it also can deflect negative energy. Amethyst is my personal favorite because it does so many things. It is the color of royalty. It absorbs bad vibrations, and it brings peace. Black tourmaline works well for protection too. Crystals are beautiful to look at and make wonderful decorations. This can help increase your positive vibration and deflect negativity. Most towns have rock shops or spiritual shops where you can purchase these inexpensively.

Along those same lines, some people report that having small fountains in their homes bring tranquility. Again, this can help you feel calm which will help you handle anything bad that is happening. Stress relief is key.

Additionally, listening to happy music is said to raise the vibration in the home and bring in light. Plus, happy music has been shown to have positive effects on the body. This is a win-win situation for you. You get to listen to good music and get rid of bad things that are bothering you.

If you feel it is really necessary, you can always get a blessing for your home. A holy person can come and help purify the property. You may be surprised at how many people will be happy to help you. But you have to ask. Don’t be afraid to ask.

You don’t have to buy items to protect you. Your faith is powerful enough to draw help to you. However, I have found that people in the midst of spiritual crisis like to have something they can hold in their hands for protection. It gives them a sense of calm which helps diminish their fear. But know that you don’t need to spend one penny to get rid of darkness.

The more you can bring happiness into your home, the less evil will be able to bother you. The point is that you must take care of yourself. You must find your smile in life. The more joy you bring into your heart, the less anything bad can bother you. I know it sounds simplistic, but you have more power than you think. And making sure that you get enough rest and relaxation is key to handling any difficult situation. Don’t let fear get the better of you.

**Update: While it is important to not let fear overcome you, evil spirits are nothing to be toyed with. I’ve worked with people who have not treated this problem with the seriousness it deserves. These things are real and can destroy you. The techniques I discussed above are basic tools. If you are facing an evil entity, it is important to get help if the basic tools do not improve the situation quickly. Always get yourself checked out by a doctor if you are seeing and hearing things, and you should get an environmental check for your living quarters to ensure there is nothing in the environment which could be causing the trouble. If you have ruled out other causes, then please reach out for help. Evil is ancient, and it will ruin you.

UFO’s & Alien Encounters

By Deborah Kauflin, Ph.D.

When you hear about aliens and UFO’s, you may be skeptical. After all, evidence is hard to come by. It can seem far-fetched that entities from other dimensions or planets are visiting us. But if you open your mind and think about possibilities, isn’t it possible that aliens have visited our planet?

There are many people who have alien abduction stories, and even more report seeing UFO’s. People are fascinated by these encounters. And when you start interviewing people who have had these encounters, you find that there are lots of common factors. Some of them are:

  1. Most report seeing beings that look very similar.
  2. Many report multiple visits.
  3. They state that the beings communicate telepathically.
  4. They say that the aliens are there for a clear purpose.
  5. Many recount seeing a red laser light, bright lights being shown into their eyes, and objects levitating around them.
  6. There are reports that those who see aliens also see small flying lights (rods of light) zipping around the air. The description reminds me of some poltergeist cases where these light rods have been reported and actually recorded on film.
  7. It is not uncommon for those who witness alien activity to see more than one alien. They describe one alien stepping forward while the others stay back. It reminds them of a military or police point man who goes first to test the waters.
  8. Often there is memory loss or a blackout after an abduction, which is then followed by flashbacks. These flashbacks begin painting a picture of what happened during an abduction.
  9. There will be high levels of radiation in areas where UFO’s or aliens appear. Sometimes alien abductees report that they experience radiation burns after contact.
  10. Abductions can occur in clusters.

While there are people who claim that they have been through some trauma associated with alien contact, such as painful medical experimentation, others say their contact was almost “blissful.” In fact, there are two distinct outcomes in alien cases. The most common involves abject fear. The abductees are terrified and often believe that they have been touched or injured by the aliens. There are reports of implants being put in the human body, though it is not clear why these implants would be placed in the abductees. People who report these things are laughed at when they tell their stories. However, we as human beings use animals in medical experimentation all the time. Why is it so far out to consider that an alien species might experiment on us?

Some people have come forward and said that they have experienced alien abduction and communication about the future. Even these contacts can be frightening. For example, a ten year old girl began having night terrors and would wake up her parents on a nightly basis. She said the ‘grey monsters’ were taking her in their flying machine every night. She said that these grey beings had big heads and big black eyes. She described them as having grey skin and wearing no clothes. She stated that these grey creatures told her that her country was about to have something horrible happen and that many people would die. These grey creatures showed her an image of a big wave running through the water. This happened in February 2011. In March 2011, the Fukushima disaster occurred. The little girl who reported the experience lives in Japan.

There are others who have reported similar alien communication. However, it does not look like these communications have stopped a disaster. After all, what could a little girl do with such information? What could anyone do? No one would listen if a person came forward with ‘alien predictions?’

So one wonders why glimpses of the future would be given in the first place. Was it to help or was it to instill fear? Would a child be more or less credible when telling such stories? Is it to prove their existence? The answer depends on who is listening.

Could it be that people’s perceptions of an alien contact impact the result of the contact? Perhaps fear can make an experience negative. On the other hand, it very well could be that we are dealing with different types of aliens. This has been suggested for a very long time. Experiences are so diverse that you have to question what is really happening. Is it a trick of the mind or are these very specific experiences a window into another world? It becomes more difficult to dismiss contact claims when you examine commonalities and the professional status of many who report contact. Most of the time professionals who admit to alien contact risk losing their jobs or credibility. Yet, they still come forth. They feel it is that important.

Obviously a person’s mental health is key when such encounters are reported. Things like medications and mental illness can make people perceive something that isn’t there. But there are many cases where multiple witnesses see something, and they are not all hallucinating. There is something to this. We just have to keep digging. Keep looking for UFO’s because they are out there.

Do We Create Ghosts With Our Minds?

Are ghosts simply thought forms? Do we make them up with our own energy? There are many scientists who theorize that ghosts are no more than a product of our own thoughts and energy. The hypothesis is that we create them ourselves. The idea is that if you make up a back story about a fake ghost and put energy into the belief, then an entity will form from people’s energy and unconscious thoughts that matches the back story.

For example, there have been experiments where groups of people set out to create a ghost. These research groups planned their ghost. They made up a list of characteristics of a fake person who was said to have died. They then try to make contact with the spirit they created. They held séances and asked questions in an attempt to get responses such as knockings or moving objects.

What these groups found was that they could get responses from their made up ghost. They would ask questions about things that they had written about the ‘ghost.’ In response, they got such things as knocking sounds. However, what they found was that the ghost could only respond to things which were put into the dossier when he was being created. He couldn’t answer questions about things that were not put into the fake bio.

But things get stranger from there. An unexpected outcome puzzled researchers. When they created these ghosts, there was more to them. That is, the ghosts they made up became independent and began to act on their own. The ghost would be there whether the researchers were at the location or not. In some cases problems arose and poltergeist activity picked up. Unwanted happenings would begin, and an entity which they believed that they could control all of a sudden became something that they couldn’t control.

Because of this, some researchers question whether it was ever a thought form to begin with. They suggest that it was another spirit pretending to be the ‘made up’ ghost all along. Are these playful or malicious entities that are using gullible researchers to manifest? Are there entities out there waiting for the chance to tap into group thought and energy so that they can act out?

We are not sure. However there are some troubling flaws in the ghost creation theory. Though it could account for some hauntings, it certainly does not explain all of them. In some cases, those who experience a haunting at a property have no knowledge of ghosts attached to the land. In fact people move in ‘blind’ to the history of the land. Then they experience apparitions and other ghostly manifestations when they have had no knowledge of those who once lived in the house. They can’t create it because they don’t know the history of the land. They only learn about the ghost once they have experienced dreams or apparitions which identify the ghost. When they investigate, they find out that the ghost’s identity matches what they have been seeing and dreaming about.

Basically the ghosts came first in these cases. Knowledge of the ghost came second. Though some may argue that someone could have ‘created’ the ghosts at some prior time, what about properties that have no history of hauntings? What about land that has no legends and no prior activity at all? What about these hauntings that spring up where owners have no prior knowledge and there is no known history of who has lived on the land? In these cases, the people didn’t create a ghost. No one before them made it up. It just happens.

Furthermore, there are paranormal researchers who question whether the scientists actually make up the ghosts at all in their experiments. They point out that it is possible that spirits or other entities imprint the information on the scientists’ unconscious. That the bio ‘created’ by scientists wasn’t fake at all; it was what spirits were communicating before the experiment.

Perhaps ghost creation isn’t creation at all but merely a method for spirits to manifest. We do know entities need energy, and what better way to get it than to feed off a group excited to do research? Maybe it is possible to have both. There may be both spirits of the dead and thought forms too. At this time we honestly can’t rule out either. However there is evidence which can point to both being true at the same time.

There is so much to learn in this fascinating field. And every day holds promise for us to open more doors and learn about the unexplained.
