Always Watch What You Say!


Always Watch What You Say!

By: Dr. Mark Farley


During one of my Lemp Mansion Tours, a guest kept saying out loud, “please take some of my energy!” I thought this was rather odd because I really don’t believe the guest knew what she could be inviting, and I know she didn’t understand the possible repercussions of her actions.

During spirit communication, you must be careful, especially during Ouija Board sessions, not to unintentionally invite a spirit to cross over into our realm or form an attachment. Because anytime you ask a spirit to do anything, knowingly or unknowingly, you are giving it carte blanche to do whatever it pleases, especially in a location such as the Lemp Mansion, which has so many transient spirits. Also, an attachment formed due to an invitation could be difficult to break.

As I wrote in a previous blog, a haunting is nothing more than an attachment to a particular location. Since an attachment is an expression of a spirit’s free will, an invitation from some unsuspecting person will seem like a very tempting opportunity. Especially if it’s an evil spirit because an invitation, no matter how innocent, could be all that is needed for an attachment to form (Farley).

The best way to prevent a spirit attachment is to avoid the situation altogether. But since we are all ghost hunters and paranormal enthusiasts, avoiding the situation is not what we do. All forms of spirit communication are dangerous. I don’t care if you use an Ouija Board or a Sony digital recorder; there is always some risk. Simple statements like, “can you give me a sign?” “Can you knock three times?” Could be all it takes to allow a spirit to cross over into our realm and form an attachment. I said this before, “most ghost hunters do not realize the risks they take during their spirit communication sessions.” I don’t care how much protection you bring with you. If you accidentally give a spirit an opportunity or give it permission to do something, no amount of protection will prevent something negative from happening.

So next time you’re on an investigation, be aware and always take care of what you are saying. Simple statements that may seem harmless could be the opportunity a malevolent spirit is waiting for to wreak havoc.
