Thanks to Derek Olson that posted this on one of our BRIDGES
I’d like to explain something - which comes with 20 years of personal experience in dealing with entities or milder terms we can use are negative energies or spirit intrusions. Some may like to call them ghosts and they are not necessarily the spirit of a deceased person but because of the differences within dimensions, they (entities) can also be that of an extraterrestrial origin or of a thought form of creation. And yes, they (entities) can and do have an effect upon us by drawing upon our own physical energy, which leaves us feeling lethargic or depressed or their physical conditions that they died from, can have an adverse effect on our health. An entity (deceased person) that has died of a disease or whatever condition that brought about death – in which case that entity is still vibrating with the frequency/energy of their death. Those vibrations do not leave the spirit until it passes into the Light, where s/he has an opportunity to re-examine their life experiences and release what's necessary to get rid of past 'baggage' through their experiences...
If a person had an entity or several with them (for whatever reason) all with similar or different conditions they had prior to their death, depression/anger/frustration/fear. How do you think those conditions would affect someone sensitive enough to pick up and feel things aren’t theirs? The person that picks up all these thoughts, feelings, and emotions of this negative energy and spirit intrusions and inadvertently takes them on as their own may become party to the same fate as the ones that just joined them. The entity may not be that of a negative but that of a loving kind soul, a family member, perhaps grandmother, father, or a friend whom you would assume is looking out for your best for you. Those loving souls may not realize that their intentions to be helpful and supportive; they are also bringing with them their judgments, criticisms and health conditions that may not be perceived by the people that they are trying to help but in actuality are hurting them in one way or the other.
We can justify that there is anything wrong with have someone like a loving friend, family member help guide or protect me? What’s that old saying about what we don’t know can’t hurt us. Think about it! The entity brings with it, all its beliefs, fears, phobias, physical and emotional conditions; possibly the load of attachments it may have had with them prior their death. Sometimes a loved one in the physical that are having a difficult time dealing with a loss of someone close can prevent the dearly departed from going on. If the departed loved one feels compassion and then is compelled to remain while trying to comfort them may become stuck and eventually stay; not knowing that when they are drawing close to their loved ones, they also pass on their concerns and emotions which in turn can affect them.
Some of these entities attach themselves when we least expect it or at an early age when we aren't old enough to understand. A child that is hurt or feels abandoned for whatever reason, calls out for help and the only immediate help within the vicinity of the cry is that is a spirit that wants to comfort and help in whatever way they can. From that point on the child/person may not be aware of the entity or entities presence and the unseen energies can have an influencing aspect to their host’s life.
IT might not be a cry for help that a person living makes but simply lowers his/her energy level in various ways that allows them to intrude on their space. This lowering of our energy can be done through being negative, (lowers our emotions) fatigue, stress, anger, substance abuse and this allows the aura to shrink or weaken and allowing an opportunity for them to do their influencing. Entities may be drawn to a person because that person is sensitive and can 'pick up' or 'sense' their presence - the entities may simply be there looking for help or the entities themselves are being guided to a source that will be able to assist them to return to their source.
Because we are all empathic to a certain extent, some more than others, an entity can be perceived through various physical symptoms that belong to the entity. If we 'feel' physical sensations within our own body and become concerned we may inadvertently begin to form a belief system that something indeed it wrong with us which in turn, may cause us to believe that we are ill, in pain or sick, leading us to seek medical attention and in doing so we start to manifest the conditions and they can become a reality, What we focus upon becomes our reality. In other words, we create our reality with our beliefs, thoughts and emotions; whether they belong to us or not. Outside of ourselves those energies or spirit intrusions may be a contributing factor as their indirect influencing is being done without us being aware of it. Have we ever wondered why all of a sudden we feel, angry, depressed when only moments ago we were fine... those phantom pains that only seem to occur once in a while... where did they come from?
A few years ago I was talking to someone about the paranormal and subsequently I became aware that a young man had overheard the conversation; he approached me, asking if I knew anything about schizophrenia. Not to alert whoever was with him that I only had a slight understanding of the condition. I explained that the only way both of us could have a better understanding, would be through a hypnotherapy session. Not wanting to elaborate because I sensed those dis-incarnate entities that may have been with him would endeavor to keep him from obtaining help. He told me that he was diagnosed with schizophrenia and the only help he received was through medication.
He came to my office and during the session we found out that as a baby, whenever he cried, his father wielding a long wooden ruler slapped and poked him through the bars of his crib. This caused the child to leave his body in order to avoid feeling the pain. In turn, this leaving his body for prolonged periods of time, left the body wide open for entities to jump aboard, which, I suspected had caused his current condition.
The entity with him thought he would have a little fun at my expense and after a long and challenging session I managed to get the controlling entity to cross-over. I had to get that entity to change his perception in order for him to want to leave and this was achieved by having him come to terms with its own anger and rage.
Some are attracted to us by our thoughts and emotions, or cries for help while some others want to play games or get their fix through the highs that they had when they did drugs or alcohol, when they were alive; they feel the high when their hosts get high. Ever wonder why it is so hard to quit their addiction. The question is whose addiction does it really belong to? When a person goes through a traumatic experience - such as the story above - he momentarily leaves the body, to escape the trauma, and may not be aware that doing such a thing makes her/him vulnerable for attachment to her/his energy field. Sometimes entities are drawn to us because they only want to be of help or be helped; others may have gone through similar life-experiences of rape, physical abuse, accident or a medical condition and were drawn to others because they still haven't come to terms with (or even understand) their present circumstances because of prevailing historical beliefs left a stigma with whoever supported or mentioned its validity. Sometime entities (spirit intrusions) or other energies often draw close to us to learn through us in an 'osmosis' fashion or they are there for what some of them say... for observation purposes. The setback to them being close or within the energy field is that they compound the physical, mental, and emotional conditions of their hosts.
Another case in point:
I happened to meet a lady in an elevator as I was going to the 22nd floor and she lived on the 19th floor. We began talking about the beautiful view of the harbor, from such a vantage point. Her only concern about living so high up in the building was the ride up in the elevator as she said she had claustrophobia. I asked how long she'd had the condition and the response can back immediately that her first attack occurred on a plane flight from California to Vancouver. She'd never felt claustrophobic before that flight. I told her that the condition probably didn't belong to her but an entity that had that condition probably joined her and was causing it. If she wanted some help, I said I could assist her and gave her my apartment number and asked her to put a note under my door when she was ready. She was looking forward to resolving the issue. However, I also told her that those with her knew what I could do and would try and keep her away and I'd be lucky if I heard from her within 2 to 3 months. She assured me that wouldn't happen.
Two and a half months later I abruptly stopped the work I was doing, due to some inspiration, and I went down to the parking lot to check something out. As I returned into the building I crossed paths with the same lady I spoke to in the elevator. She had told her husband about our conversation in the elevator and he had found it intriguing and wanted her to place a note under my door, asking me up to their apartment. I reminded her I'd told that she probably wouldn't contact me for 2-3 months, she couldn't believe she had avoided me so long ... this showed her how manipulative entities could be. She immediately made the appointment for that same evening.
I talked to her husband while she was busy smoking and pacing back and forth on the balcony. When she joined us and sat down. Without any formal preparation for a session ... I decided to go straight into confronting the entity that was there:
Derek = Dk:
I'll refer to the name of the lady as 'Jane'
I'll refer to the name of the entity as 'Mary'
Dk: How are you tonight Jane?
Dk: "No" I'm not talking to you Jane; I'm talking to the one that is with Jane.
Mary: #!*#!*# off at you! Who the #!*#!*# do you think you are? I was fine till you showed up.
Dk: When did you meet Jane?
Mary: On the plane. I'd show her, she was laughing and having a good time. It wasn't so good for her after I joined her.
Dk: Does that condition of claustrophobia belong to you?
Mary: Yes, I drowned.
That evening I tried to get Mary to be reunited with her family and loved ones, but she wouldn't leave. Mary felt that her husband and father were mad at her and wouldn't want to see her, as they had warned her not to go swimming so shortly after eating. She'd ignored their advice, gone swimming and developed cramps and drowned. When she saw Jane on the airplane, she couldn't stand seeing her having such a good time and decided to teach her a lesson.
I left that evening, not resolving anything, as I wanted Jane to come to her own conclusions as to how she was being affected by the entity that was with her. After a week of no communication, Jane finally approached me - not because she wanted help, it was to discuss how the brief session I had affected her husband. We made arrangements to meet again that evening and I 'dispatched' two young boys who were with him. After Jane came in from her pacing/smoking on the balcony again, I took the opportunity to catch 'Mary' off guard as she thought that I was only going to deal with Jane's husband. This time she was #!*#!*# off as Jane now knew she was there and was giving her a very hard time. Her influencing days now seemed to be numbered.
As I began a session with Jane, I learned she had stayed up all night with some girl friends drinking/partying, saying their goodbyes; then decided to go down to the beach and wait for the sun to rise - as her plane would take off shortly after that. In her weakened state (fatigue/alcohol) Mary was able to 'join' her very easily.
After changing Mary's perceptions about her death, knowing she was being reunited with her forgiving husband and father, she was willing to go.
I'd like to suggest here there are several general indicators/signs that would indicate the presence of spirit entities which might be the cause for symptoms/conditions that may be affecting one's life - if one doesn't have any other logical reasons as to why they are happening:
1. Fatigue: lack of motivation/wanting to sleep/no energy.
2. Isolation: you are left alone/people are avoiding you/or you find yourself avoiding them.
3. Diet change: eating more/less than you normally eat/eating foods you would never eat/sudden dislike of food you used to enjoy eating.
4. Hearing voices inside your head: inner dialogue/conversations with those voices.
5. Character change: becoming more aggressive/introverted/abusive to family and friends.
6. Mood swings: depression/anger/fear/becoming emotional for no apparent reason.
7. Confusion: forgetting things/starting something and never following through to completion. Starting a train of thought and without realizing it you can't remember what you were thinking and start another thought.
8. Poor concentration: can't sit still/your mind wanders/can't sleep/restlessness.
9. Sudden physical problems (aches/pains): onset of physical conditions/phobias/marks on your body that you weren't aware of before/onset of poor health.
10. Memory lapses or blackouts: forgetting appointments/no recall of certain events you attended/going someplace and when you arrive there you don't remember why.
11. Impulsive behavior: buying things/going places/acting irrationally/abrupt changes.
12. Addictive habits that weren't there before: obsessive compulsive actions/finding yourself singing or humming when you never had that behavior before.
13. Change in interests: watching programs/doing things you never would normally watch or do.
14. New found abilities/knowledge: being able to do things/know things/ that you didn't know before or even having an interest in that subject of discussion.
15. Recurring dreams: usually bad dreams/nightmares.
16. Having physical/emotional reaction to what you just read as the information may have pushed a button within you/or created a reaction within an entity that is with you that also just read these symptoms.
17. Denial/Avoidance to seek help after having physical/emotional reaction to what you just read.
These symptoms are only indicators that a spirit entity may be causing certain conditions to manifest in your life and they are just another avenue to explore. There are many other types of energies that can also be influencing/causing conditions in one's life.
It is up to us to come to our own conclusions and make our own decisions based from an informed position and then decide for ourselves if what you just read feels like a truth to you. We all have freewill and it is up to us as to whether we get them out of our energy field a.s.a.p. or accept the fact that they are there and that’s fine. This is your life and we reap the benefits of whatever decision we make regarding our experiences; enjoy the ride.
How does reading sit with you? This is an opportunity to sense yourself mentally, emotionally and physically and if you have any reaction to what you have just read... that is providing that you got this far to read this last statement... may provide you with an understanding of yourself.
