The Paranormal Explorers are very excited and want to be the paranormal ambassadors for Edmonton.
It’s amazing how rich the history is here and how many places really are haunted.
Sometimes there are people who have been experiencing frightening and torturous bouts of paranormal activity for such a long period of time, that when the spirits are finally permanently removed, the person can’t help think that every noise or something out of place is paranormal. Which it isn’t. They just won’t let it go and relax and say “it’s gone!” They have trouble looking for rational explanations. It takes time and it takes healing.
Other people who have gone through long bouts of paranormal activity actually miss the attention from the spirits, albeit it’s negative attention. Some of these people are very lonely and have no other social interaction happening in their lives. They maintain that the SAME SPIRIT that has been removed is STILL THERE (even though it is permanently gone and there is no other entities around). They get stuck in a psychological pattern where they can’t move on and up out of the funk and chaos they put themselves in. On purpose. Argh!!!!!
We get emails and calls from a few of these people and I have to tell them that I can’t run over to their home every time they hear something odd or feel a little spooked. It’s a difficult situation because you want to help everyone. But people have to take ownership of their living situation and do some work to help themselves out.
I will tell adults and children that they have the ability to not let spirits bother them. I explain if they can close their eyes and imagine a suit of armour being built around their body, shiny and silver.
Or they can pick a Stormtrooper outfit from Star Wars. Doesn’t matter, it’s your armour. Now picture this armour made of metal, being incredibly thick and strong and nothing can get through. This has become your psychic protection field. Every time you hear something, feel something or see something that you think is paranormal and you are scared by it, put your suit of armour on. It takes practice and a belief in yourself. Meditation helps.
So if you think there is still something ghost-like in your house, start meditating and put your suit of armour on. You are the victor in the spiritual war – so to speak……..
I have found Lurker spirits at 75% of spirit removals/investigations that I have ever been at. They are located in the back of closets, furnace rooms, alcoves, and corners of rooms.
There is usually a hierarchy of spirits assembled in someone who has a home that is active: dominant or aggressive spirits, secondary or submissive spirits, and last, Lurkers. It’s extremely difficult for most people living in an actively haunted atmosphere to pick up on Lurker spirits.
They are very still, quiet and produce virtually no activity at all. They are as their name defines them – basically lurking in your home. Lurkers bear no ill will; and they also have nothing positive to contribute. When I come across them, they are incredibly embarrassed and even apologetic for being caught there.
They’re usually the last spirit I find as they are trying to fade into the woodwork (or other dimension) and become even more invisible and undetectable. As far as clearing them, all the ones I have encountered have no trouble leaving the home immediately and crossing over as quick as they can.
WHY are they even there?????? you ask. Well, they are just spirits that mad the decision to stay here on our plane for awhile so they can just “watch”. Watch everyday living, parties, celebrations, arguments, and just mundane stuff.
A person has to die on a piece of land or in a certain building in order for their spirit to haunt it – NOT TRUE!!!
Spirits do not have the space and time restrictions that we do (quantum physics, baby!). The inside of your house could look like the inside of your house or the Serengeti Plains to them. Their dimensional plane is not OUR dimensional universe, although, they have the ability to come in and out of it.
Sometimes a house, a room or a piece of furniture looks like something they used to have when they were alive; thus the attraction.
Other reasons are:
The Paranormal Explorers have been to some historical sites where murder or a tragic event has taken place. I have noticed that the spirit of the person who has befallen the misfortune is not always present in the building or surrounding area. They have crossed over and are not there. However, other spirits might be present who had nothing whatsoever to do with the tragic event or even the historical period it happened in. Odd, you say??? Not really.
There is no law in the universe that states you have to “haunt” the place where you died. Quite possibly, most spirits can’t wait to get the hell away from where all the nasty stuff happened.
Mourning is a necessary process we all must go through in order to function at a “normal” level of living. You have to remember that if you are mourning a loved one, or just enjoying the simple pleasures of Christmas, your loved ones actually are with you in spirit. Even if you cannot see or sense them, they are there.
