Frequently Asked Questions About
Psychic Attack, Possession, Spirits, Ghosts, Haunting, Implants, Influence, Entities, etc.

Summer, 2007 - I receive more questions about this area of the spirit realm than any other - especially in the last two years or so. I am compiling questions and answers so that I can direct people to this page, when they have problems like this. I will be adding to this page often. 
Send your questions to: Sherry@ILoveAngels.com

These are compilations of actual questions that people have written to me with.
If you were someone who asked, you may find something that I wrote to you below. And if you were someone who asked, thank you so much for the opportunity. Your difficulty may turn out to be a real blessing to someone else who is going through it and thought they were alone – or ‘crazy.’

I know lots of psychic people - I know very few with the clarity to use their abilities well - consistently, in service to others - or just as important, to get their own lives together so that they are able to be of help to others.
Real clarity is hard to come by with interference from any kind of entities, 'living' or otherwise.

Questions start below in bold.

I've often said that of all of the things that I've learned over my lifetime, and out of all of the things that I share in workshops, on my websites, in emails, etc. that the information about how to protect yourself, get clear, remove entities, implants and cut inappropriate Karmic ties, etc. is the most life changing. It is a key component in building a solid foundation for true and lasting spiritual growth.

I've been taught that if one isn't being responsible for the care and maintenance of their own energy field, then there is a limit to the growth and awareness they will be able to gain in this life.  What does this mean? You have learn to protect yourself from outside influences. As you become more spiritually aware, you will begin to experience other worlds. All kinds of possibilities open up: it’s thrilling and it’s amazing!

Some time after that opening, you will attract the (unwanted) notice of spirits who want to mess with you. Many people are thrilled by this attention, even if it is annoying or even frightening, to a degree. That is until it gets to be too much or they are drained of their vital energy day after day, they lose focus and cannot rest or meditate easily, their relationships start to fall apart, etc.  They start to understand what real fear is and lose clarity. It's a horrible experience and an all too common one.

It always amazes me that someone who is having a real problem like this, and knows almost nothing about what to do if things get out of hand,  will try to ignore the situation or play around with the other side, until things becomes almost completely unbearable. A lot of people want to feel 'special' and they will keep messing with these spirits until they have a major problem on their hands - and then it often doesn't clear up easily.  People will often treat this stuff like it's just a fairy tale - but remember the original fairy tales were not all sweetness and light.

I've seen what happens more times than I can remember when people don't want to believe that there are "bad" or "evil" spirits (whatever you want to call them) that have nothing whatsoever to do with their existence except to torment some person who is 'lucky' enough to be able to hear them or sense them, in some manner. You cannot rehab these spirits. That is not any human's job; it is a job for a spiritual Master. Leave it to them.
These spirits are just acting according to their nature - they are just 'doing their job.'  It is nothing personal.
But the results in your life ARE personal.


#1 Answer for this month - (the question is obvious):
If you have tried the protection exercise, and it's not working for you as you'd hoped, then there is a big chance that you have not paid attention to cutting the cords that are going to each of your chakras.
Go back and do it again, this time cutting the cords. You have to do it in the order that I have laid out or it won't work right.
It's like washing off layers of grime so that you can see what is under each layer in order to clean that one.
And you can't put your dirty clothes back on an feel clean...
Nothing else will do much good if you forget to cut the cords.
You may have to cut those cords again and again, hundreds of times.
Chances are you've had them for a long, long time, it will take some time to get rid of them.
Be patient.

Question: I feel that some 'thing,' some kind of  spirit, is always watching me.
When I go to sleep, it is waiting and maybe trying to get into my body.
Sometimes I think it is in my body or in energy field with me.
What can I do to stop this and make them leave me alone?

There are all kinds of things that can be bothering people who are sensitive.
(Also people who are not sensitive,  but they probably won't know it and so won't be here reading this!)

Disincarnate spirits are often people who have died who don't know they are dead - or maybe they do, but they are afraid to let go of this plane for some reason. Perhaps because they are afraid of what awaits them on the other side.
Or the spirit might be a relative or a friend that has passed and started out wanting to keep an eye out on you. They are having a hard time letting go of their control issues.
It could be someone you know, or it might be someone who 'hopped onto you' because your energy was the strongest energy around. Maybe they were with someone you met and they hopped off of them and onto you.
Spirits can also be picked up in hospitals, either visiting someone or ill yourself. Or they attached to you when you were under anesthesia.
There are many, many ways for someone to pick up an entity or a spirit.  It's a very common problem and is a major concern for people working with energy, doing psychic readings, and/or doing healing work.  Anyone who is 'sensitive' is attractive to "these guys."
A spirit that is bothering you could also be something that is not, and never has been, human.

Keep in mind that there could be more than one spirit bothering you.  This is also common.

There are repercussions - real spiritual consequences - for anyone, spirit or human, who interferes with another's free Will.

First try asking the spirit(s) to leave.
They probably will not want to, at least at first. However, it's worth a try.
In case they were once human, try pointing out that they are dead. Maybe they don't know it, or might not believe it or want to deal with it. They are used to living through you, so why should they move on?  Maybe they think they will end up in hell. That fear is very common.  
Tell them that they will be helped through this transition by a group of Beings. They will have to take a period of time to look over their life - and sometimes this is very painful, but it will be something with an end, not an eternity of hellfire.
This alone will help them to let go, in a high percentage of cases.
If it doesn't, then tell them that whether they want to or not, they must leave right now. They are interfering with your life and it is not fair or correct. DO this with compassion, but be firm. There is no situation that I’ve even seen or head of where an entity of some kind taking over or harassing a person turns out to be a good thing. They are holding the person back and they are being held back from their own growth.

Suggest that they think of someone they love who has already passed on, and call to them. This will bring that person to them, to help them. Even if they can’t think of anyone to call, there are always Beings around who will help this spirit leave and start their new phase of life.
>>Tell them that they don't need to walk over to the loved one, they can just float over.

What if they won't leave when I ask them to?

If they will not leave, then it's time to ask for help.  Whatever you call them, there is a group of Beings on the other side that will help you. They are always available, but you have to ask for their help. Ask them to come and remove the spirits who are bothering you and interfering with your life's work and take them to wherever is appropriate for them to go.
I've heard them called everything from the Astral Police, to Rescue Angels, to just recently Carrion Angels – there is also the Archangel Michael and his helpers, etc.

It doesn't matter what you call them, it's the concept that you need to understand.  Ask for their help with a sincere and open heart and then mentally and emotionally step back and let them take over. They will come almost instantly. They are always around to help, but you have to ask them, as it goes against your Free Will for them to barge in and rescue you.

Ask them to come to you right now and help the spirit(s) and take them off to wherever is appropriate for them to go. It's not your concern where they take the spirit. They'll be handled in whatever way is necessary to get them off of you and get them started back onto track for themselves.

This will happen very fast.

How will you know it’s happened? How do you know they are really gone?

It's different for everyone, but for sure, the feelings of being watched, invaded, etc.  will stop.
The aches and pain, the emotional roller coaster you may have been on... it will stop.
If it doesn't stop, then you missed one or two. Go back and do it again. Most of the time, it works the first time, but if it takes a few more times, no big deal.

Some people have an unconscious thrill about being singled out by spirits of this type. When the spirit is gone, they find they miss the excitement of the constant agitation and drama. They feel a real loss. These folks will pick up a new one or two (or more) quickly. They don't understand that most people encounter these spirits at one time or another. They just don't realize what is happening. It is truly nothing special and will hold you and the spirit back from reaching your potential.

Sensitive people need to learn to be aware of what is around them at all times, because they are targets for all kinds of stuff on the other side - just like the moths are drawn to the light...

I often think about what life would be like if others could see what I see. If you knew that going to a bar and getting drunk would open you up to having a little buddy come home with you – and maybe stay for a few years, would you think twice?

How about kids, or adults, who like to "party?" How can that hurt if I’m not an ‘addict?’

You will always find lots of disincarnate spirits hanging around a wild party, a noisy, smoky, (maybe a little sleazy) bar, or any other group of people who are drunk or high. They make perfect targets for any nasty spirits looking for someone to ‘stick to’, so that they can continue their many addictive behaviors through the person they attach to. They miss those feelings and behaviors so very much, since entering the state we call ‘dead.’  

If you die with an addiction and don’t move onto the next stage, then you are stuck here, earthbound, with the addiction and no physical body to indulge with. What is the poor spirit to do? (a little joke)

They will find someone to jump into or influence, so that they can experience what they miss so much. What they crave.

Look at any bar, party or other group of altered human beings… lots of bodies…strong energy to sip…drink to drink, drugs to do, sex to have... smokes to smoke... you name it.  
Alter a human's consciousness with drugs or alcohol and their resistance goes down in so many ways. Throw them in with a lot of other people who are also wide open and you have a feast for all kinds of little (and bigger) nasties.
The high passes, the party and the sex ends… but the entities or spirits that attached to the person will make them miserable in various ways for years to come. 

I don't do drugs or drink or anything like that. I'm a 'good' person. How could I have this problem?

It's not about being a good or bad person. It's not just about drink, drugs, indiscriminate sexual partners,  etc. Those things will make you a bigger target, but other things will also make you vulnerable.
This is nothing personal. IS getting bit by a mosquito personal? Maybe you happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time and were in a vulnerable state of mind. Angry at your spouse... tired from working too many hours... low blood sugar from skipping breakfast. Your state of mind can make you more susceptible. Very strong emotions can open you up, like a zipper!
Anyone who thinks they are above getting an entity or being influenced by a spirit is only fooling themselves. Anyone alive could be a target, given certain circumstances. Thinking you are 'beyond that' is a great way to attract a spirit who will be happy to show you otherwise.
Are you a spiritual Master? Unlikely. Then you could have a problem. 
There is no reason to feel embarrassed. Is it the dogs 'fault' a tick jumps onto them? It was just walking along happily and one jumped on him.
It's similar for spirits and other entities. You can be minding your own business and still pick one up.

So don't freak out! Just take care of it in the ways that I have mentioned. Other info follows and is elsewhere in this site.  

What are some of the symptoms I might have if I have a spirit attached to me?

Just to name a few…Depression, anger, additive behaviors – to drugs, alcohol, tobacco, sex, unhealthy relationships, etc… Mood swings, depression or anger for no apparent reason. Chronic fatigue, chronic pain, severe headaches… usually the pain came on quickly and there is no apparent reason that can be found.  Intense phobias and fears that make no reasonable sense - (I say reasonable because some things are reasonable to be afraid of!)

You will know for sure that it was ‘a something’ from the other side effecting you, if you clear them out and the problem stops. Which is common. It just stops.


Can't it be a good thing to have another spirit in my energy and 'watching out' for me?

Not it cannot. Certainly it is your choice to have them hanging out with you, but know that you are each keeping the other one from growing naturally.
They are dead, you are not, not yet.
And after you die, there is a good chance that this spirit might not want to leave then, either and that is will drag you along for the ride, into the next person that they inhabit. Think that's not possible? I'm sorry, but it's more than possible and it's not that rare. After you first die, they will still have all of the skills they acquired while in you - and a strong taste for what they enjoyed. You will likely be at least a bit disoriented and confused - and be pulled along with the other spirit.

They are not watching out for you. Your Guide, Angels, and other Higher Beings, loving deceased relatives, etc. do not need to take over your body to watch over you.
If you are holding them here, and they would prefer to move on, (which is not as common, but does happen,) then you are interfering with their growth and progress and that is selfish and unfair.  

I have met a few very psychic people who think this is just fine to hang into spirits and get them to do things for them. The think it's a mutual exchange and so it's fine. Each of them that I've met also think it's fine to dictate to everyone around them, and manipulate and scare people with their 'predictions' dreams, messages, etc. for their own good, of course...)
It gives them a sense of power and control, but it's all an illusion. There are repercussions for anyone, spirit or human who interferes with another's free Will.

Then what? How do I keep them off of me?

 Keep your energy field or aura, clear and clean!

After you ask them to leave, I highly recommend you be more careful where you hang out and with who, and learn about your energy field and how to take care of it.

That information is on this page:

Spiritual Protection

Also do a 'heavy-duty' spiritual exercise regularly to clear your energy - the one I highly recommend  may be found on this site at:

Protection, Clearing and Releasing Exercise

Learning and DOING this exercise literally changed my life. It will yours, too, if you do it and understand it.

It’s just basic routine maintenance to keep your energy clear. Would you go months without taking a bath?  EEEWWW!

You live in your energy field, your spiritual body, as well as your physical body. It’s up to you to keep it clean with routine maintenance. (You will find more about this on the web pages referenced above.)
If you have been involved in energy work or metaphysics for awhile, you may have done a variation of the exercise I recommend already, but I have found that this precise way of clearing to be the most effective, ever. It's an ancient technique, used by many ‘mystery schools’ Shamans, etc. It used to be a big secret, because people who have nothing better to do could use this understanding for their own selfish ends.
But this is true of anything, isn't it? There is always someone who will take advantage.
I think it's better to have the 'good guys' understand it also, so they can protect themselves!

I love to see the surprise during a group exercise when we go through this clearing and reach each layer and then get to the ties. When the person clears their energy for themselves, it's such a feeling of clarity and freedom - more than ever before, for most people. Even for those who are already clear.

A few of the ties between two womenKarmic Ties? What is that?

The key difference in this method of clearing the energy is the part where you learn to cut the karmic ties and other energy ties that are not necessary.
These are ties are string like things or cords that go from our major chakra areas out into the world, attaching us to people, places or even things we have strong feelings about - or once did.

We create these cords or strings for the most trivial of reasons - and the most profound. They are like little super highways connecting you to things outside of your own energy field. And as they connect you, they also bind you, as well as the other person, place or thing. They holding you back and tying up your energy, literally stopping you from being the most that you can be. Another person can literally pull your strings and control some of your feelings. You gave them that control by allowing (consciously or unconsciously) the ties to be formed. If you are done with the relationship or situation, you can choose to cut the ties and allow yourself and them, to move on.

When you are ready, you will cut only those ties that are appropriate to cut, allowing only the ties of the highest love to remain in place. There is never need to cut the ties of real love. The ones you want to cut are the ones that you have out grown. Such as control issues, (yours or theirs) old lovers, anger with others, etc.

Most spiritual exercises to clear energy do not address these karmic ties, cords or strings. The person does something to clear their energy and protect themselves - but there are still those strings running right through their energy field, into their 'protected space.'
This leaves the person completely open to anyone or anything that they have a tie with. This includes the living, dis-incarnated spirits, places, things... you name it. Anything that you have or had a strong attachment to. Also other things, that can use those string to come on in.

In just one lifetime, you might create thousands of ties to things. Over many lifetimes, you’ll end up with literally millions of no longer useful or necessary ties. It's easy to cut them, but the person has to be aware they are there. The person who created them is the only one who can do can cut or remove them.

There are lots of "healers" who will tell you they cut these strings for you. I’m sure that most of these people are sincere, but I've come to know that it's just not possible for anyone else to cut them and have them stay cut. Why?
These ties go to the deepest levels imaginable with each person and they must be ready to let go of them. People can have tremendous fear reactions when even thinking of letting go of these ties.

That question could be: "Who will I be without my karmic ties?"

I understand this question and have a lot of empathy for anyone who asks it. I had the same questions long ago. 
I started by concentrating on letting go of the ones that were appropriate to let go of, according to my own higher self, and assisted by my Guide.
It took time - and I am not a Master, so I still have some to deal with!
However, it freed up an incredible amount of energy that I didn't even know I had available. I found that I truly was a very different person as this process evolved. Everyone who knew me well, or even fairly well, noticed the changes.

One thing happened that really made the point with me about these ties. My Guide had been trying to explain them to me, but I wasn’t getting it.

What happened was that, at the suggestion of my Guide, I picked at random one string and ‘followed’ it back to its origination. What I found astounded me. It went to a silver tea service, that I had once polished when I was a maid, living in London, in another lifetime.
This got my attention in a way that made me realize that a lot of stuff I was hanging onto was totally outdated and even ridiculous. That tea set didn't even belong to me, but I'd coveted it, and so I still had a tie to it.

Yes, it was just fine to let that go!!

I get quite a laugh from that lesson, but the reality is, that's the way it is for many, many ties that we all have. They are worn out, silly and maybe it's time to let go!

I always tell people that they can try letting some go and then if they change their mind, they can always pick them up again. <G>
And this is true. You can always pick them up again. Some people like being defined by their karmic strings or ties and that's fine. We are all at different places. There should be no embarrassment or shame in this. Everyone is here to learn and resolve their 'stuff.' To pretend that we are above it all is not fooling anyone!

The answer is that you will be a slightly different person.  Perhaps more than you thought you could be.

Is once enough? Will I have to cut the strings again or clear my energy again?

Ties: In the case of strong ties to a person place or thing in this life, it is common to have to cut the ties many times before detachment is complete.
This cutting is always done with compassion and I always say the phrase "I hereby cut these karmic ties, allowing the person, place or thing their freedom, thereby allowing myself freedom."

In the case of clearing your energy... do you just take one bath in your life? Or one a month?
Clear your energy regularly. That will mean something different to everyone. I do it daily - maybe even several times a day, depending on what is going on. You do what you feel is correct for you. REMEMBER TO CUT THE CORDS!
