Spirits and hauntings..

When someone dies, i.e. leaves the physical body, his soul/Jivatma exists in the Pirtulok/spirit world, till it is time for the next birth. But in case the soul is still deeply attached to things related to that life, environment, relations, deep and especially negative emotions, or even its physical body (if it is buried, and not given in the fire then water properly);  then it becomes difficult for it to progress into its new existence. It cannot ‘sleep’. The first step into the pitrulok, is a period of rest. The soul is extremely tired with the efforts of the life it has lived, and recovers as it ‘sleeps’. During this ‘sleep’, its attractions to its previous life are dissolved as far as possible. After some time it wakes up, gets used to its astral existence, takes stock of its karmic balance and chooses its new place of birth.ghostBut if it is still deeply attached to its previous life’s stuff, highly materialistic, emotionally attached, has deep cravings, addictions, etc, it refuses to enter the pitrulok and remains attached to some physical object in the Martyalok/physical world, a house, a tree, a person anything. It then becomes a ghost/pretatma. This is very inauspicious phase (paap yoni) and a step backwards as the soul tries to return to the environment of its previous life rather than moving onwards. Thus is gets stuck. It is already very tired after its ‘living’ phase, so its higher self tries to get it to move forward into the Pitrulok, but its misplaced desires is a barrier. It is quite confused, oppressed, frustrated, angry and sad.

These ghost souls are very rare but they are. An example, saw this on one of my clients. e.g. assume that someone was addicted to gambling and frequents a specific place where gamblers meet. After the soul left the body, it cannot not shake off its desire to gamble thus gets attached to this gambling place. Now it cannot participate in the gambling, so it watches the other living people and gets even more frustrated. So it then temporarily possess the bodies of the living and gets its thrills. The living person is not aware of this temporary possession, but he does realise that whenever he enters the gambling place now, he suddenly feels more excited and his desire to gamble is heightened, etc this is the effect of the ghost’s temporary possession. So places of low level desires, e.g. gambling, bars, red-light areas etc, have these ghosts mingling among the living.

When someone is possessed, however temporarily, the ghost uses his pran/vital energy. Thus you will see that such people lose weight, fall sick, become listless physically, emotionally unresponsive, skin becomes cold/clammy etc. The person’s electrical body goes into a shock and the burden of the parasite/ghost drains it. This drain is dangerous. I have written about haunted houses earlier, where my body’s interaction with a house at the electromagnetic levels told me that something was wrong. All our interactions are electromagnetic in nature.

This above phenomenon is thankfully quite rare. But living people often say they are being ‘haunted’ or ‘possessed’. There are a few other reasons for this. Most commonly, someone who is afraid, with a weak mind or with a hyper-active imagination, can imagine a ghost in every shadow. This imagination can get quite vivid and he is quite convinced. This is a sort of a self-hypnosis where the person for whatever reason projects ‘ghosts’ around him! The power of thought. To ‘cure’ this faulty thought process, there will have to be a equally vivid counter-idea put to him. Generally educated/rational people do not suffer like this, but this is quite common in backward areas. Now what to do if you think someone is ‘possessed’ or thinks he is possessed. If the person has created an auto-suggestion of being possessed, asking him what he wants, is a useful counter-suggestion. Most of the times it is as simple as alcohol or a cigarette or some food item. It is given with the strong instruction that he stops being possessed. And the person stops the self-hypnosis of his ‘possession’. Ensure that he gets a good diet, head/body massage with ayurvedic oils, plenty of sunlight and if possible a small vacation to refresh his mind. (Cleaning out the house and environment of negative energies also helps immensely.)

As always, small children must be protected from interactions with negative energies, thus they are not taken to places of where there is trauma, or morally wrong things happening, or graveyards/cemeteries, never take them at twilight or in the dark under trees or near water or near ruins etc. Children can see too much and also have limited strength of mind and body thus can be affected quite easily by ghosts draining their pran.ghostIf the person has actually been possessed, (most likely temporarily possessed) by low level ghosts. he too will ask for something small related to the senses which can be given to him with the strict instructions that it will leave now. Generally these are souls of people who had a death-bed wish of eating something, travelling somewhere or meeting someone. Not actively malignant, just dejected and frustrated.

Then there are the benevolent ghosts, aged people from the family who are stuck because of their tremendous love for someone in the family. In such cases they may help by providing guidance in danger etc. It would be ideal if you can show them the way onward and push them on it, by performing a Tarpan/energy ritual for the deceased. Then there are the malevolent ghosts, people who died young, young mothers/expecting women, people addicted to bad habits etc. These have very strong and selfish desires and may want to drag their favourite person/person with similar tastes down with them to the pret yoni/ghost phase. Possession by these can be actually dangerous. Best engage a shaman/tantrik to deal with them.

Writing a bit on how tantriks work. The easiest is to catch a ghost soul, turn it into a slave which will do whatever is being asked. These are always unwilling and always ready to turn against their captor. Most tantriks, as their powers of control fail, come to a bad end as their slaves turn against them.

The second type of tantrik uses his own powers to create a ‘shadow’/chhaya from his own energy which goes away from him and does his work. This is like a robot, no separate consciousness of its own, but if the tantrik dies before he can dissolve his shadow, this shadow can continue existing especially in uninhabited places and seem to be ghost. This ‘ghost’ is something like a bio-particle. In my earlier post on haunted houses, I have written on the bio-particles of deceased persons adhering to stuff in empty houses, which when occupied by living persons again, become reanimated and appear as hauntings. It is easy to remove such residual bio-electricity. In these cases, a ghost soul is not involved.

The rarest things are when the person is possessed by a higher level entity (pishachya, vetal etc). This almost never happens, but then a tantrik/shaman will be needed if you ever come across this.

So the gist is, if you ever feel that you are being haunted or your client is being possessed, 90% of the time it will not be because of a real ghost soul. Of the remaining 10%, also 9% will be the low level spirits whom you can easily deal with either by giving it the small thing it desires and/or family doing the tarpan ritual. Strength physical, mental and emotional is essential if you are to resist these forces and help them move out into the Pitrulok where they now belong.

Haunted Houses

Strangely this week was my first experience with a haunted house! I have seen ghosts in several houses, on the streets, wherever, in fact there was a ghost in my house. I live in a house not an apartment. One of the bedrooms had a resident ghost. Just that one point in the corner, an Indian servant who was killed by his British master, quite a mutilated body. Apparently his remains are somewhere below the foundations of the house, below that room, and he is still attached to them. Even spirits have free will I guess, if he doesn’t want to go I wont waste my energy. But I could not have him in the house, so I slightly tweaked stuff (I used a pendulum), now that spirit stays outside the gates and I keep a bowl of sea salt crystals over this point in my bedroom to keep it ‘clean’.https://psychologicallyastrology.comBut back to the point, this was the first time I actually saw a family in trouble over a ghost in their house. This is an old friend whose husband in the army, so they had locked up their house and the entire family was living at the husband’s place of posting. Now they had come back after several months to stay here during the children’s winter vacations. They found a messed up house, naturally rats and insects had taken over, they cleaned up everything and then I went over for tea and chit-chat. Found the auras of the husband/wife/2 children completely drained, black streaks and even their complexion had turned ‘grey’. There was a massive entity, a ball of negativity residing with them in their house. This negative entity had further attracted the rats with their variant of negativity thus manifesting its filth in the physical environment too.

Hauntings do happen for real. Not only houses, but even old furniture and jewellery can be ‘haunted’. The usual suspects are spirits, possession, suspicious deaths and ghosts from the past. But if looked into deeply, haunting is basically a concentrated chunk of rather negative energy, which may be conscious or not conscious. Some of us can sense these haunting energies easily and be influenced by them. We naturally feel scared, this is something not of the normal world, cannot be located by the senses but still is very much there, affecting us on the sub-conscious levels. Our own mind also plays its part and adds to the scare. These hauntings are nothing serious if we dont let our imagination run away with us.

There are mainly 2 types of these haunting energies and two different ways of dealing with them.

The conscious energy We call this world ours, but we have invited and uninvited guests from the other dimensions here with us. These are quite rare but yes they happen.

  • Actual departed souls who for some reason remain trapped in this world of ours. See when a body dies in this world/Martyalok, the soul is directed to leave the body and travel to the other world/Pitrulok. The energies of the fire/Agni of the cremation/Anteyshti are necessary as they power the soul for its travel. Later the immersion of the ashes in flowing water or the sea ensures that the soul safely reaches its destination, does not stay back. But if for some reason the spirit does not move forward, it creates an energy disturbance, haunting
  • Then the invited guests are the spirits who are called in this world by tantriks/witches and not sent back properly. Books like Goetica tell budding witches how to make sigils of entities and leave them around in this world!
  • Your house is a conscious thing, it links to the energies of its residents to make itself habitable. Your movements in every room energise them. So always buy a house that you can fill with your energy, a family of 4 should not have a house bigger than 5-6 rooms. Empty rooms or rooms which no one uses for days will attract negativity.

pexels-photo-712786-e1546968314197.jpegMy friend had left her house empty for too long. It would have been preferable if she would have rented out a couple of the rooms in the house so that there would have been some humans powering it with their energies. If you leave your house shut for months like this it will soon exhaust its energies and become an open invitation to anyone who can ‘occupy’ it, from which ever dimension. Now this family was being drained in 2 ways. The house was energy-deprived for months and was demanding. And the negative entity was also happily sucking away at their auras!

So if you ever have to re-activate such a house this is what you need to do,

  1. Dress up the house – Put a bunch of mango leaves and marigold flowers on the front door. (called toran in marathi). Draw a rangoli/kolam. Keep a lighted oil lamp at the front door in the evening twilight. Sprinkle the charged water from your puja/Gangajal all over the house. Keep an arrangement of fresh flowers, house plants, living energy in your house.
  2. Do your basic puja in the puja ghar. Blow your conch in the morning pujas and during the evening twilight. Take the Camphor arti all around the house.
  3. Some pujas – call a pandit, get a basic Satyanarayan Katha or whatever you like done in the house, call all your neighbours, distribute prasadam. Having people in your house for 5-6 hours like this will make your house happy!
  4. Throw a party – for the not so spiritually inclined, throw a mini house-warming party. Call your neighbours, friends and the caterers, karaoke and dance. Lots of energies for the house.
  5. If there are actual ghosts they will have to be removed actively. You can do this yourself. On the twilight of an amavasya, cook some fresh rice and take some fresh curd, in front of your puja ghar/altar mix them in a bowl with a spoon. Take an incense stick, light it. And now recite the siddhakunjika once in your puja ghar and then walk all through your house reciting the mantra, “Om aing hreeng kleeng chamundayi vicche”, and as you recite place a small tea-spoonful of this curd-rice at every door and window of your house, including the toilets and the front door. Or if you are more drawn to Shiv, use the Kaalbhairavashtak. Or if you are more drawn to Hanuman use any of his stotras. This is a very easy method to remove the negativity from the house. The oldest in the family does it, my Dad has been doing this since I can remember. In the next morning, the dried out curd/rice should swept out with the normal dusting, cleaning.
  6. And if you are scared to do this simple thing with rice/curd, it would be best to call a pandit and get a puja/ritual for Devi, Shiv or Hanuman done asap. Living with an energy-sucking ghost in the house will make the family members physically ill within 6 months.

https://psychologicallyastrology.comThe non-conscious energy – These are not the actual spirits but fragments of their energies which are left behind. The spirits have moved on to the Pitrulok. This is more common.

  • You must have sensed this. You have an ancestral house in your village where your grandparents lived. After they passed away this house was cleaned up and closed, with the furniture, mattresses and kitchen stuff that they used. Now when you go there once a year, you can feel your grandmom’s presence or hear your granddad’s voice. This is not a haunting.
  • The tiny fragments of their energies trapped in the furniture, the imprints in the mattresses and curtains are activated by your living presence in the house. You by your living energies are animating the remnants of your grandparent’s aura/energy adhering to the objects used by them.
  • So what do you do about these fragments of energy? If you can afford it, give away their stuff to poor people who can use it. There will naturally be some items which you cannot give away, so clean them thoroughly, air them, put them in the sun and then use them yourself for a few days so they take on your energy impressions. The gold jewellery should be ideally remade into new designs and the gemstones cleansed. This will solve these type of ‘hauntings’.

I could not have the tea and snacks made in my friend’s kitchen that day, the energy was not good. And neither could I sit inside, we took a couple of chairs and sat outside.

Do take care of your house and its energy. Keep your surroundings ‘clean’. It will be reflected back at you manifold.
