Hi again miss_Janie,
(and hi to you jpm1602 how the hell'a'ya doing my friend).
Janie, if you want rid of the spirit then the advise jpm1602 gave in his first post is excellent. Smudge the whole place (paying particular attention
to corners/recesses), with Lavender ... White Sage ... or Sweet Grass. You can buy these from any new-age shop or herbalist supplier and you can use
any one on their own or a combination of all. Once you've completed the 'smudging' I would recommend you place a small amount of salt (preferably
'rock' or 'sea' salt), in the corners of every room. This should be swept/vacumned away every week and replaced.
During the 'smudging' process (as you walk through each room), tell the spirit it's time for him to move-on in a firm (but kind), voice. The
'smudging' process can be repeated at regular intervals (eg; monthly/bi-annualy), as required (even if you don't have a spirit problem).
I think sir_stinky_pinky and jpm1602 (in his 2nd post), are being a little alarmist ... for example by making comments like;
'LEAVE ... spirits can be tricksters one minute and grim-reapers the next'.
'I'll mess em up'. (shame on you John)
Because you never implied that the spirit was in any way malevolent ... just that it had freaked you out a little because of the 'unknown' factor.
(that's a natural reaction), no need to start throwing 'holy water' around like your on the set of 'The Exorcist',
as some have suggested.
I mentioned on another thread that in four houses where I lived (including my present home), I have had resident ghosts.
1. The house where I grew-up had the spirit of a man who had lived there in the past and had commited suicide (head on the train tracks near the house
- early 1900's) . He was a troubled soul ... who did on many occasions scare the living s@#t out of me. But I was only a child at the time and
didn't know how to move him on.
2. The second place where I experienced (almost daily), activity of some form or another was in a fairly modern house. The spirit in question was my
son. I think he was there as much for me as he was himself and it was naturally very comforting to feel him around. When I had my youngest son (18mths
after Callum had died), he used to play with him. It was lovely to see my baby son scooting across the kitchen floor (in his walker), giggling because
his (spirit) brother was playing peek-a-boo with him.
3. The next place that had a ghost was the cottage I lived in when I first moved up to North Yorkshire. This cottage was very old (built in 1601), so
not surprising really I suppose. This was the spirit of an old lady who made her presence felt as soon as I moved in ... and during the 4 years that I
lived there, she was seen by numerous visitors. She was very sweet and never caused any problems at all. Her party trick was walking along the creaky
upstairs landing and hearing her distinct footsteps either going up or down the stairs.
4. And finally the house I live in now. I live in an ancient market town (no more than a village really) and I moved into the 3 storey, victorian
house last July. There are two ghosts here ... a man, who causes no problems - he seems happy to observe the comings and goings of the houshold - and
a young girl about 10yrs old (I think she could be the man's daughter). It would be fair to say that 'Mellissa' (the young girl), is a precocious
child (a little princess if you will).
and she was not at all happy that my son and I had moved into 'her' house.
During the first couple of weeks she had physically pushed me down the 2 steps that lead from the kitchen to the sitting room ... very ungainly for a
lady of my age to be doing the splits
... and she locked me out of the house when I was seeing my friend out to her car. Luckily my son was
upstairs, so there I was standing in the street shouting up at his window (top floor), for him to come and unlock the door. When he opened it the damn
thing was not locked.
The only physical evidence of Mellissa was her footprints on the damp, wooden floor after I'd mopped it. These were witnessed by myself, my son an my
mother (who was visiting at the time). The upshot is, that since I had a very firm chat with her and made her aware that she was not going to get rid
of me that easily ... and if she continued to try ... she would be the one leaving, she's been very well behaved and caused no further problems.
So as you can see ghosts maintain the same characteristics and personalities that they had in life ... and there's a great deal of diversity between
one ghost and another.
