No matter what you read in the mainstream media, or hear from materialist science, spirits do exist. The real problem is that we have so little knowledge and understanding of spirits and the spirit realms. Scientists can’t get a handle on these realities because they are not physical, and so cannot be reduced to sensory data. I’m confident that future science will develop the concepts and the technology for exploring these realities. The exciting thing about it is that when science crosses that boundary, it will signal an expansion of consciousness, individual and collective.
Meanwhile, on this everyday level, there are people who suffer the negative effects of spirit intrusion or attachment who are looking for relief and cannot wait for science and the medical field to catch up. These people traditionally seek help from a priest, a shaman, a medium, and increasingly, from hypnotherapists. Most people in our Western culture do not know how extensive the literature is on these kinds of spirit interactions until they or someone close to them is affected by such an entity. There’s a good chance that you, or someone you know, has seen, felt, or been in communication with a spirit at some point in life, and for many, the interaction is a source of distress and confusion.
Two months ago, I was invited to London to give a talk at a one-day conference entitled: Spirit Release: Helping Lost Souls Move into the Light. I spoke on the issue of spirit intrusion and attachment and the most effective way of helping clients resolve this situation. There were five speakers, and each of us spoke from our clinical experience on dealing with lost and earthbound spirits, whether they are attached to places or to people.
The conference was hosted by the Spirit Release Forum and chaired by David Furlong. Videos of all the talks, including a Q & A period at the end, have generously been made available on the Web site at Spirit Release Forum. This series of talks will give you a well-rounded introduction to the issues of spirit intrusion and attachment.
