There are hundreds, if not thousands of groups out there. Some investigate only and tell you their findings. Others will not only investigate but work to help remove the spirits. You need to first decide on what you want – do you want to know what is there or do you want the spirits also removed?
There are groups that also have different practices. Any groups that are using black or white magic or any type of conjuring devices like crystals, tarot cards, Ouija boards, etc., should be avoided. If you are dealing with a spiritual issue, the group should have a strong relationship with God. Be sure to “interview” the group and ask questions. Find out what they have done in the past; check out their website and see what they are about.
Any groups that charge should be avoided. We had a case where an elderly gentleman was charged over 5K in a year and was told he had demons in the house and attached to him. It turned out his issues were environmental. If you are immediately being told you are dealing with demons – tread lightly.
Listen to what you are being told. If they are using scare tactics – steer clear. Remember, you are bringing people into your home.
Lastly, remember, nothing is 100% so do not set your hopes on your problem being addressed in one visit. Sometimes, if it is you that brought the spirit it, it can be a lengthy process.
Does Smudging remove spirits or evil entities? Smudging removes negative energy from a location. For example, if there has been a lot of stress in a home, the negative energy builds up. If you do have spirits there, they will feed off the negative energy. Smudging will remove the negative energy but not remove the spirits. You may see a decrease in activity because you took away their “food source”, so to speak but not the spirits. Once the negative energy returns to the home, so will the activity. IF you are dealing with demonic spirits, you should never smudge. Smudging actually makes them angry and increases the activity. So, unless you know what you are dealing with, you should be very cautious when smudging or having someone else smudge your home.
When I was called into this journey, I learned something very important early on - there is a lot of bad and wrong information out there about the Spiritual World. For example:
1) There are not demons lurking around every corner as some of the TV shows would have you believe. Demons are real but also rare.
2) Sage does not rid a home of ghosts or demons.
3) Practicing White Magic is not a cure for Dark Magic. Magic is Magic – only God can get you out of the mess you may find yourself in – not a bunch of crystals or visioning white lights.
As this blog will do – is break down individual subjects and delve deeper into this world. We do not claim to be experts as there are NO experts in this field. But I will say, what we will be blogging is based on actual experiences and/or knowledge from those that have been in the filed for 30 plus years.
If there are any topics you would like to hear specifically about, please go to the contact page and let us know. We will do our best to address everyone’s request.
Until next time – May God look after you and bless you beyond your belief.
