How to Get Rid of Ghosts

Before considering asking spirits to leave a place, think about what would happen if they were gone. Are ghosts good for business in a hotel or restaurant? If so, the owners may not want the spirits to leave.  If the spirit likes being in a location, are they hurting anyone by being there?  If not, maybe the best thing to do is to leave them alone. However, if the ghost is scaring people and you need to get rid of it there are a few methods that have worked well for me. 

The first method is to simply ask the ghost to leave.  That may sound too simple, but it usually works.  You may want to talk to it and explain why by saying “You are scaring us,” or “This is ____________’s house and she is not comfortable having you here.”, then calmly ask it to go away. If this doesn’t work right away, try talking in a firmer voice without yelling or getting angry. Anger only gives more power to negative spirits  

 As I mentioned earlier, ghosts may not be aware that they are dead, so you may have to explain to them that they are no longer part of the physical world and that they should look around for their spirit guides and move on towards the light. I close my eyes and visualize the spirit going into the light and ask the spirit to go to the light with their family members. There are always loved ones waiting to assist a spirit cross over.. This method has been very successful for me.  Some spirits are reluctant, but if you tell them that it will be better for them this way, they eventually move on. 
If you don’t feel like you are communicating, call in an experienced medium.  This can usually be accomplished in one visit.  If the medium finds that the spirit wants help with something, and it is something they can do, or you can do, by all means go ahead and do it.  That may be the only reason the spirit is staying behind.  If there is nothing you can do, have the medium communicate that you wish you could help but you can’t, and it would be best for the spirit to move on. 

If the spirit simply refuses, try not giving it any attention or talking about it at all. This takes energy away from the spirit. Don’t show any fear, because the energy of fear empowers negative spirits.  Also do not use a Ouija board or have anything to do with the supernatural, which could open doors to the spirit world and allow the spirit more access during the time you are trying to get it to leave, and until you are certain it is gone. 

Go about your daily routine, and when something happens that can only be attributed to a ghost try to ignore it.  The ghost may give up and move on if its intentions were only to get your attention.  

f it looks like the problem is more sinister, or there are multiple spirits in the house, you will probably want to engage the services of an experienced psychic, medium, or ghost hunter. Find someone who has a lot of experience and check references if at all possible.

Un-X Office Haunted by Pesky Spirit

The offices for Un-X News Magazine are haunted. We have been in this location for six years and have had infrequent visitations with crashing sounds that cannot be located, heavy steps on the two staircases, and audible voices. However, during the past six months activity has steadily increased and we are now getting footage of ghostly happenings on the security cameras.

Last week my bookkeeper and I were looking at the security camera monitor when we noticed movement in the break room which triggered the motion detector. Then the motion detector went off in three more rooms and finally outside the front door, as if someone were walking through the building, but no one was in the building except the two of us.

Yesterday my secretary went upstairs to the bookkeeper's office and she found a box of receipts on the ground with the receipts on the floor underneath it. We reviewed the security camera tapes, and at 8:35 a.m. in the morning, before anyone went up the steps, the box fell over, and two receipts could be seen falling out onto the ground. Four seconds later, three orbs come up from where the receipts were lying and shot off in different directions. Outside of the camera's view the box was found sitting straight up with the receipts underneath it.

Later, while reviewing tapes an orb was caught as it flew across the room. One of stills is below. The orb returned a few seconds later and went the opposite direction.
