Open invitation to spirits

Monday, May 12th, 2008

Q. Masters, a group of friends and I have been having weird things happen to us lately. It is almost like in the movies when they talk about poltergeists and discarnate souls that haven’t crossed over into the light and want to cause havoc. Strange dreams have been the norm. All of these occurrences have taken place in a hunting and fishing cabin we jointly own. None of us have had anything happen anywhere else. It all began about five months ago when the weather was horrendous so we stayed in drinking and working with an old Ouija board. None of us really professed any belief in the game, but it seemed to be truthfully answering our questions. Some of the guys don’t even want to come to the cabin anymore. What can we do to get our peace back again?

A. You are right to connect the current activities with your use of the Ouija board. The whole premise of using the board is that you want to communicate with non- physical entities. Any time that you indiscriminating invite energies into your presence, anything that is there may accept the invitation.

When most mediums establish contact with non-physicals they protect themselves and those with them by asking to make contact only with energies that will come forth for the highest and greatest good (known as “beings of the light”). With protection in place, discarnates (those souls who have left their physical bodies but have not crossed over to the spirit world) may not come on their own and may only answer questions directly put to them. They do not have carte blanche to come and stay.

When you, with no thought of whom you might be asking to come into your cabin, played around with the Ouija board, you attracted a group of spirits who have not gone home. They were having too much fun staying inebriated while still alive, so they choose not to leave. They identify with your fun times in the cabin and want to relive some of their exploits through you. They will remain around until they are asked, or helped, to leave.

The easiest way to get them to leave is to rescind the invitation unequivocally. Once invited, to uninvite, you must say so three times. Discarnates also do not like the smell of sage (used frequently by American Indians and others to clear unwanted spirits from locations). If none of these things work, try contacting a local channeler of medium to talk to them and find out why they are sticking around.
