I agree with you COMPLETELY!!!!! There is obviously much more going on than they have disclosed and to be honest, they are nearly an hour's drive
from my home (and that's just one way!) and I'm not sure how much further I want to go in to their issues. They strike me as a family more in need
of counseling than paranormal investigation. They keep emailing me though and I've been debating on whether or not we should go back and stay all
night and keep our camera's rolling; maybe they could finally get some peace of mind as far as the paranormal angle goes.
This is a tough one...
There are so many different approaches that can be taken, and I personally don't know the most appropriate that is conducive towards the desired
result of freeing these people from this state. It even becomes more difficult, considering their are legalities to what you can do, what services
you may provide, and then as to if you are even willing to go down particular paths or even if you are able to take said paths yourself.
What I would do...(not so outside the box, but not commonly done)
If you have an office, I would invite each member to come in individually. Removing them from the home, and from one another.
Next, I'm sure that you charge for your services... in this case, it may be more appropriate to divert said charges to paying for either a
psychologist or counselor to sit in during these meetings. I say this, because it seems that their mental states and their relationships with one
another is truly what needs to be addressed.
I used to be all about tarot readings, numerology and astrology(although the ways in which I practiced them differ from the norm). I once knew a
couple, both of which suffered from delusional thinking... much of which stemmed from drug use, previous abusive relationships, and all sorts of other
factors. One claimed to see 'white bunnies' every where, the other claimed to see 'ghosts', as well they both were extremely paranoid to the point
in which one of them often spoken in whispers while the other one was busy covering up cameras on their computers and phones as well as destroying
built in microphones on different devices.
This is when I decided enough was enough... so I meet with them individually and questioned them extensively about their past and how they felt about
everything. Using what I learned from the tarot readings, and doing numerology reports on them... I then gave each of them a very detailed breakdown
about their position in life, and how their past has created these delusions. I'm skipping over a bunch of details.. to sum it up. I found, that
being as hard core with the truth about their past, their perceptions of events, and their feelings about relationships allowed for them to realize
that much of their issues and delusions were self induced. Along with a change in diet, and the recognition of reality... they are an amazing couple
today. They still have problems, but it's NO WHERE NEAR what they once were. The only reason I brought numerology, astrology and tarot into the
situation, was because I knew that it's something they were both interested in and I used this as a medium in which to speak to them through.
That is where I see the parallel with exorcism and the 'blessing of the house'... it's not that it's about divinity, God, or any other
'spiritual' connection. It's about connecting with the individual.
I'm absolutely no professional, and my means were admittedly highly unorthodox, yet... results are results. I know many will never agree with the
following... but I feel that if they are not fully committed to the idea of religion and such, that I'd steer as far away as possible from ever
referencing it. It becomes tough when the path necessary to take, is one in which you don't agree with... yet with some individuals, because of their
connection with a set of beliefs, this because necessary. Just fruit for thought I suppose... let me know what you think.
