Just been reading up a bit on Spirit Attachment,
And I’m intrigued at this, as I have heard 1 in 10 psychologist’s say that they have come across this
But want to keep a low profile on it, as it is almost unexplained,

A brief on what the term Spirit Attachment is..

A minority of those who die fail to make the transition successfully. They become what is known as earthbound, because they remain mentally attached to the earth plane and so cannot progress. Reasons for this include a traumatic death, concern over some unfinished business or anxiety for a loved one on Earth.
Such earthbound spirits are rarely malicious: mostly they are lost and confused. This may manifest in a variety of ways. They may attach to a house or locale with which they were associated in life, so that the house or locale becomes haunted. Such spirits may also be responsible for poltergeist activity, which is their way of drawing attention to their plight.
In some cases an earthbound spirit may attach to a living person. Some of the more common symptoms can be: lack of energy, memory disturbance, behavioural change, mood change, addictive behaviour, relationship problems and hearing disturbing voices. There may be bodily pain and other physical symptoms. The degree of attachment also varies. Some individuals are scarcely affected, while in rare cases the individual's body and mind have been taken over completely."

It needs to be added that incarnate spirits may attach in a similar manner to discarnate spirits and that not all attached spirits are of human origin

So has anyone hear from what they know have had this?
Have you felt like you have had such a spirit attach itself to you.?

Would be interested to here others stories on this subject,

Also for those interested hears a case study with pics of a child that also had this,

Yes is true but more than spirits is also left over energies from the living, some people can feel this energies or ( spirits ) when they move into an old house.

Sometimes when people complain of things happening and in their homes and bad feelings, it has to do with how violent or nice the prior tenants of the house used to be.

And when is somebody that died in the house then we see these energies as earth bound spirits.

Occurs this only my opinion. Its many type of energies and spirits that surround us all the time.

I've experienced it before. I went to visit a freind of mine, and when I went into his house I felt an easiness. After being there for a few minutes I saw a cat in his house. I asked where it came from and he said that it was stray that his wife let into the house. Anyways, I noticed that a few days later "things" just weren't right in my room. After a few days, I asked it to return to where it came from, and it left. I feel that it followed me from my friends house to my dorm room. Why? I don't know.

interesting post asala

ive heard of cases like this before, sometimes this is linked to low level possession.

Interesting post... but also do you get rid of these energies, since some may be harmful??

I was just reading on how to release,

Seems that there are therpists out there that do this,

Spirit Releasement, also known as remote depossession, is the process we use to release entities from living people. The term remote means that the work can be done from a distance. This is possible because we work in the higher consciousness. Releasement can also be done directly with the person wishing the procedure. However, we feel that the remote process removes any possibility of suggestion playing into the process. Remote spirit releasement can be done without the conscious knowledge of the person on whom we are working, but permission is always requested from that person's higher self before the procedure is undertaken.

its got quite alot of info on this site

Though im sure they may be other ways, this is just a site i came across,

Ever seen someone in an abusive relationship and they didn't know how to get out? You can tell them all day how to make it stop but for some reason they don't, or won't.

Spiritual energy is much the same. It's around us each and everyone for all our lives. It's just another part of this world we live in. It does sometimes attach to people and finds solace there. Normally they don't even know its around.

Sometimes though it can manifest itself and become quite disturbing, even violent. The person involved doesn't really know how to end the abusive relationship or how to get away. You can tell them all day long how to do it but they still must make the decision for themselves to end it. This can be very difficult, especially if its a child thats involved.

I could tell you that when spiritual energy comes to me I simply say, "No." and it leaves. That doesn't help you much though. Dealing with it is a state of mind that one must become accustomed to.

Spiritual attachment is real, and every case is unique. Not because of the spirit involved but because of the person.

Love and light,

Thanks asala
The link was very informative. Last summer someone close to me suddenly past away. The pictures I took of him only several months prior were all blurred and looked as though there was spirit interference around this person.

The night he passed away the people he lived with said he was on the roof banging at... midnight, the coroner reports he died at 9'oclock,that evening ....another person said it was around 11'oclock when he was seen outside walking. I believe his spirit was confused
He used to tell me when he died he was going to come back and haunt me.....I know he was joking but I think his spirit is still confined to the earth.
A few things have happened to make me think he is still hanging around...this upsets me because I believe if he stays bound to the earth he will never rest.

Thanks mrwupy

That makes sense..... I think I'll have someone take pics. of me and see if there are any energies around me....if so I'll ask it to leave.

Well - first - I want to point out, that when a person dies (although there are some that are very much grounded in their beliefs), most people seem to go through a 'confused' stage. It's as if they are just 'not getting it' for a span of time. That span of time varies greatly from person to person and for many reasons. But during that time that happens just after death, when the person is confused, unsure of what is/has happened, etc, they are very much here with us. When they come out of this confussing hazy state many do wish to say good bye or take care of loved ones etc.

To have that energy of a loved one with you is not like being possesed. lol
It's more like a series of little comforting things they do to help you through their death. When it happens to you, as scarry as it sounds, it is not scarry at all. When someone you love very much dies, and when in great heartsick grief you wish for nothing more in your heart than that one last hug from that person or one more chance to say something or hear their voice or see their face --- and you do get that hug or see that face or hear that voice --- it's something you hold on to for the rest of your life as if a miracal has happened. It takes you from tears of grief to an instant moment so full of joy and happiness that you find yourself smiling and laughting and so completely 'ok'....

I guess it's indiscribable. It's a wonderful thing.

I agree AngelaLadyS
i for one have no problem with spirits hanging around, I guess with me i just feel them more so when im in need of comfort or i miss them,

I guess my original post last year was based on the fact that some can cause problems for people almost like a darker side of things,

Thanks for your imput,

Your right - they are more 'here for us' in our times of need. Also, our thinking of them brings them at times, but also, sometimes they come near and that gives us a 'spontanious' thought of them :-)

Sometimes there are problems, but not as often as we hear about.
