HOW TO GET RID OF A GHOST
Do you think you
have a ghost? Do you want it to go away?
No, that's not a dumb question.
Some people don't mind spirits being around. In fact, I am one of
those someone's. However, I've never had a bad experience with a
ghost. If you don't mind them, you can learn to "tune them out"; much
like you might tune out the noise of a train that passes close to your
home. Some commercial businesses, such as restaurants and
hotels, actually appreciate them, because they can help their
you really want the ghost to go away, you can try a couple of things.
Also, make sure that you read those things that you should NOT do.
The easiest way to get rid of a ghost is
to simply ask it to leave. Use a firm voice and tell the
ghost exactly what you want and why. You might say something
like this: "This is my house and it bothers me when you are around

dead. You may have to explain to them that they are dead, that
they no longer belong in the physical world and will be better off
if they move toward the light.
Sometimes you may have to ask what the
spirit wants. This is often the case with someone who has
recently passed over who may be attempting to communicate to you
about something. Afterwards, they are happy to leave.

ones, angels, or guides coming to
take them to the light.
When telling the ghost to "go
away", do not yell or sound angry.
Do not give the spirit recognition by
talking about it in your home, or maybe avoid talking about it all
together. This provides the spirit with energy, making it more
Try not to show fear. It is your home
and the spirit can generally do you no harm. Fear can also provide
the spirit with energy.
DO NOT use Ouija boards, Tarot cards,
séances, or witchcraft when dealing with anything that is supernatural.
These items may actually increase spiritual activity and/or "open doors"
that invite demonic and other unwanted spirits.
