How to Handle Spirits When They Won’t Leave You Alone
When I was younger, I didn’t always make the connection that spirits weren’t living people.
I had a spirit friend named Wendy and she would do things with me like any normal friend.
I would get frustrated when my family members would try to sit on her or close the door before she made it through.
It was confusing to me when they didn’t pay attention.
The first time I truly became aware of non-living spirits was when my neighbor, Mrs. Loesch stood in my doorway smiling at me.
If I had not been told that she was dead, I would have thought she was just standing in my room to visit.
That was the moment I became aware of ghosts or apparitions.
I decided early on to shut off my sight for the sake of seeming like everyone else.
Although I don’t remember the exact moment I made this decision.
I remained sensitive and aware of energies but the sight didn’t return until years later when I started meditating.
Spirits have been a nuisance at times trying to force me to communicate with them when I really didn’t want to.
For years, I struggled with how to handle this. I’d choose to run away, but even that did not always help.
For those of us that are open, we can be like a beacon of light for the souls that are lost, trapped, or ill at ease.
They often will become desperate to communicate which does not make for the most polite interactions.
We have to remember that we have a say in how, when, or if we will communicate with them.
Here are a few ways I’ve learned to handle it when they won’t leave me alone.
1. Set Boundaries Choose How Much You Are Willing to Communicate
You get to decide what you are willing to do. If you want to help them, tell them you are willing but let them know your guidelines.
You can say they need to come to you at a certain time of day and let them know when you are done.
You can let know if it is okay to just show up or when it is not. You can ask them to only come to you in a certain room or place.
I didn’t even think I had choices like these so I let some spirits try to push me around or threaten me.
I learned to dismiss them if they made me uncomfortable.
2. Do Not React
If you do not want to interact with a spirit at all, don’t acknowledge them.
Ignore them completely. This may escalate their energy or they may go away. If they get aggravated and start trying to get your attention, you can firmly tell them to go.
I’ve had spirits slam doors, shut off the power and throw things.
When this happened, I simply told them I was not going to play and they needed to go.
Then others have just gone when I did not acknowledge them.
Do not let them scare you.
Try to stay nonreactive as much as possible.
It is not always easy but remember you have a choice. Just breathe stay grounded and speak firmly. Call in your angels if you need to.
3. Ask For What You Want
This did not even occur to me for a long time.
It is an important choice especially when opening a dialogue with a desperate or frightened spirit.
You can ask them questions so you can know exactly what they are doing.
You can ask them to stop being hostile.
You can ask them to show themselves so you can see who you are communicating with.
You can ask them to stay in a certain area. You can ask for exactly what you want.
Remember that they may have been out of contact with others for a while.
This could be a scary step for them and they may need reassurance or guidance on how to do it.
They may not know where they are or what is happening.
Explain as much as possible to them and let them know what you want.
Spirits can be as varied as the people you know. Some are gentle, curious, and kind.
Others are angry and looking for a way out. Some may want to get a rise out of you.
Then there are some that are not even remotely interested in you.
I’ve experienced some that didn’t even seem to know I was there…perhaps on a different dimension.
If you are attracting spirits, you may have a gift of being able to channel them or guide them forward on their journey.
You can discover the reason and see what feels right for you.
