One of the hardest facts in coming to terms with our multi-dimensional nature is that we share the subtle energetic ecology of the astral planes with other beings who are not always friendly. Some in fact, can be downright nasty and pathological.
Sorry folks, the astral planes, just like the physical ones, are not always sweetness and light. But rather than putting our heads in the sand, and living in dangerous denial of the shadow -- which unfortunately, many spiritual seekers do -- let’s look this issue square in the eye and try to dissolve some of the ignorance and fear which allows such negativity to get a hold of us in the first place.
Negative Entities: What are They?
Below is a super simplified list of some of the more commonly recognised categories of negative energetic parasites, they are what you could refer to as astral wildlife. As certain layers of the human subtle energetic body are embedded in the astral planes, we are participants in this deeply interconnected multi-dimensional ecology, whether we like it or not. So as sentient beings, we really need to get our heads around that fact that the physical body is only the tip of the much larger iceberg of our being.
The names and specifics of such energetic and how to deal with them, may also differ according to tradition and culture. Negative energy parasites can include:
Disincarnate beings: the earthbound spirits of people who were once alive on the physical plane, but have been unable to properly pass on and return to source.
Discarnate beings: astral beings who have never existed on the physical plane at all.
Elemental beings: inter-dimensional beings with their own dimensional reality. They find a common ground with humans upon the astral planes through which they work to translate thought energy into manifested reality.
Human-created negative thought and emotional forms: Entities created by concentrated mental and/or emotional energies such as anger, frustration, lust, grief, hatred, fear or guilt
What do These Beings Want From Us?
One of the main features of negative energy parasites is that they seek to trick you into thinking that they are a welcome part of your own energy body, soul or psyche. They do this in order to gain your acceptance and permission to keep manipulating you into situations which will give them opportunities to create more havoc and extract more energy.
Does this sound familiar? Have you ever wondered where the idea for vampires came from? Well, it has it’s roots in ancient knowledge of the dangers of negative entities from the astral realms.
One of the principal tenets of the vampire mythology is that you don’t invite one into your home. This is a metaphor which expressed literally, means don't invite energy parasites into your bodily energy fields, thoughts, emotions, actions, or words and by extension into the physical body, where they may eventually cause serious misfortune, disease or even death.
The outer protective layers of the body's subtle energetic system could be compared to those of a biological cell. They provide immunity from destructive forces which seek to weaken and invade our protective boundaries. When pieces of our soul splinter off, due to trauma in our present lives, they can punch gaping holes in those protective energetic boundaries. The role of the body's subtle energetic layers in translating higher-dimensional frequencies of energy into our experience of the physical plane, means that when they are damaged, our ability to engage with our reality in a healthy and balanced manner becomes seriously impaired.
Such vulnerability can be exploited by negative entities, which seek to deepen and widen existing breaches in the Auric layers to increase their access to energetic nourishment.
One surefire way to detect and remove negative entities, is to consult a qualified energetic healer operating within a tradition that you feel comfortable with. Although a number of energetic healing traditions recognize the importance of negative entity extraction, Shamanic healers in particular, are noted for their ability to quickly remove negative entities and keep them away through soul retrieval work. However Shamans that do soul retrieval work don't exactly grow on trees. There are a number of powerful measures you can take for yourself.
Soul Contract Revocation and Preventative Measures
One of the most powerful ways of ridding yourself of negative entities, is to do whats known as a Soul Contract Revocation. It's potency as an energy healing tool, comes from the fact that it severs you from any agreements which you may have made, either conciously or unconciously, which have allowed someone or something to invade your energetic sovereignty, to steal your energy and have some level of control over you, either physically, emotionally, mentally, and/or spiritually. These may include actual contractual agreements you may have signed, or other kinds of agreements you have made such as oaths, vows or promises to institutions people, or deeply held beliefs about oneself or others.
If you lack confidence in ritual clearing work, you can use a ritual created by someone else and carefully follow the instructions. For an excellent example, see the video at the very bottom of this post which is one of my personal favorites. There are many other great ones on the web too. It's a unique proposition for each individual so, I recommend that you do some research and figure out what feels right for you. If you are already aware of the sources of soul contract agreements that you have made which are allowing energy parasites to rob you of your life force, you may wish to do a very personalized ritual naming, shaming and driving those specific forces out of your life and energy fields.
One of the best cures is prevention.
There are a number of things we can do to prevent negative entities from attaching themselves in the first place:
Make positive lifestyle changes such as stopping over-eating, smoking, alcohol and/or drug abuse. These kinds of destructive behaviors weaken and eventually create holes in your energy field. As any energy healer who has worked on the field of a drug or alcohol addict will tell you, their aura looks like Swiss Cheese.
Radically re-evaluating your social, work, or family life to reduce exposure to environments or people who may be full of negative entities. Sometimes being in such situations is unavoidable, but if you have been in this kind environment, it is good to remember to cleanse your energy field. Negative entities are much easier to remove when they have only been attached for short time.
Reduce exposure to persistently stressful, dirty, disorganized, toxic, violent, abusive or trauma-saturated environments. These can severely damage our energy fields and increase susceptibility to negative entities.
Past Life and Ancestral Karma
We can also be born with pre-existing weaknesses or holes in our Auric layers, due to the effect of past life and/or ancestral karma. Such weaknesses can make it easier for negative entities to invade and make food and lodgings for themselves in the void left by the missing piece of soul.
A good healer can not only remove and banish such entities, but is someone who will positively empower you with knowledge and confidence to work through the lifestyle, emotional, Karmic / ancestral issues that may be making you more susceptible to negative entity intrusion. Depending on the kind of entity, it may take an energy healer one, a few, or even several or more visits to remove. Some are easy and can be picked off in a session, like leeches. At the other extreme, there are more resourceful and pathologically determined entities, which create the need for a much more prolonged and challenging treatment regime.
In any case, it is absolutely crucial that people cooperate very closely with their energy healer to make the necessary changes to banish negative entities and make it very difficult for them to return.
It's possible to pick up negative entities basically anywhere there are people or places that people use or inhabit. But there are places where the concentration of negative energy parasites tends to be much higher. Such places might include:
places where alcohol is served (especially pubs and nightclubs) work environments (especially large top down hierarchical organizations) large crowds (particularly one's full of stressed or angry people) mental institutions, hospitals, jails, schools war zones or places where intense interpersonal violence has occurred domestic homes accident sites graveyards
Not surprisingly, graveyards are a haven for wandering earthbound spirits looking for a ride and a feed. The intense negative emotions (guilt, anger, fear, hatred etc.) held by some people when they die, causes their earthbound spirits to seek out and attach themselves to the energy fields of people with similar qualities. If they can't manage this directly, they will hitch a ride on any passerby to get closer to and attach themselves to others who most strongly express the same dominant negative emotional patterns.
Sacred symbols or programmed crystals placed on your person or in living or work areas, can be a strong source of protection from negative entity intrusion.
Smudge your energy field and living spaces and use entity clearing sound frequencies. This does not get rid of entities, but it can reduce other negative energy or agression in the environment to which they might be attracted. This makes it much harder for them to get the upper hand. Herbal smudging after any arguments, violence or accidents, is a particularly good idea.
A pre-disposition to certain kinds of negative emotional states can make you much more susceptible to the manipulations of mental and emotional thought-forms. Ensuring that you are grounded physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually, is a powerful way to resist negative energy parasite intrusion.
The Responsibilities of Occult Practitioners: Subtle Energetic Hygiene
In the "New Age" context, spritual teachings are frequently watered down to make them more accessible to a wider public. The problem here is that all-too-often, vital information relating to the darker aspects of the spiritual healing path are either partially or completely removed from teachings, and people are not being equipped in any serious way to deal with the full consequences of thier spiritual awakening.
Those involved in any kind of occult practice as part of their personal development: healers, spell workers, light-workers or those doing kundalini raising exercises such as Yoga, Tai-chi and Qi-Gong and or meditation can become prized targets for attachment from negative energy parasites. Firstly, this is because spiritually developing people cultivate increased concentrations of subtle energy within their auric fields, meridians and energy centers, on which negative entities can feed, and more effectively manifest their will. As some negative entities are attracted to and specialize in feeding off light, spiritual progress, in and of itself, can cause increased potential for negative entity attachment, if one has not learned how to perform proper energetic clensing rituals.
Secondly, there is also the fact that genuine spiritual development practices naturally lead to the break-up and dissolving of negative energy blockages created by trauma, experienced either in this or previous lives. In the process, negativity can be renergized and cause aspects of that trauma to resurface. This can bring with it, a host of reactions from negative energy parasites, who have either been happily embedded and feeding of the effects of that unresolved trauma in your energy body for an extended period, (in some cases for scores of years), or those which might be present in your environment, which are excited at the prospect of all this highly energized spiritual commotion and relish chance to exploit it for their own benefits.
Thirdly, negative energy parasites have a vested interest in waylaying people who are trying to develop spiritually because holistically happy, healthy, well-balanced and sane people, can free themselves and others from suffering and this basically means less food.
