Most wouldn’t consider it wise to walk alone down an alley at 1 a.m. and invite some scary fellow over to have a chat. So why do some ghost hunters engage in similarly risky behavior when they disregard the importance of protection and clearing?

Over the years, I’ve seen it repeatedly: psychics and paranormal investigators putting themselves at risk to end up in a dire predicament that horrifies them and perhaps creates a dangerous environment.

I’ve heard of people:

  • becoming temporarily possessed during séances,
  • getting injured by unseen entities,
  • having malicious spirits following them home and turn their peaceful existence into living hells, and
  • getting energies attached to them.

A woman told me that her friends kept telling her to stop interacting with spirits. When I asked her why, she said, “I’ve had bad encounters.”

It turns out she’d taken classes for more than a year to develop her psychic abilities. She said they taught grounding, but not protection and clearing of energies. During one exercise where she was supposed to tap into her spirit guide, a creepy gargoyle appeared instead. She thought it would go away on its own. Instead, it followed her home. A string of negative events (including a lightning strike narrowly missing her and ceiling fan blades falling off and hitting her) left her frightened to go home.

In another incident, an investigator, who is prominent in social media, videotaped what he said was a demon attacking him. Freaked out, he was finally able to clear the energy out of his area by evoking Jesus’ name.

Don’t let your ego tell you that protection and keeping your personal space free of harmful energies aren’t important to your well-being. And just because nothing has happened before doesn’t mean it won’t the next time.

I believe evil is rare, but that it exists. And just like using a seat belt to keep you safer in case of an accident, protection techniques ensure you only interact with the highest and best energies.

Think of it as self-defense.

We are given control over the spirit realm

As a Christian, I find comfort in the Bible verse announcing we have control over the spirits visiting our realm. In Luke 10:19-20 (New International Version), when 72 of Jesus’ representatives returned from their travels they said, “Lord, even the demons submit to us in your name.” Jesus replied, “I have given you authority…to overcome all power of the enemy, nothing will harm you….the spirits submit to you.”

I believe the Supreme Power is ready to assist you, regardless of your spiritual beliefs. Prayer, surrounding yourself in heavenly white light and keeping energies where they belong (and that’s not with you) are essential.

See my video, “You Have Control Over the Spirits in Our Realm,” for more of my thoughts on this issue.
