The spirits of the living also leave strong energy in a home, apartment, or dorm room. Energy sensitives will pick up on this pretty fast, as will
children. Mostly the first type of intuition you'll receive is during dreams; when the mind is still, that's when you get the clearest sense of what
happened in a home. So the last occupants, or any occupant who lived there for a long time, leaves energy data in a physical location, too. They don't
have to be dead for this to happen.
You can clear this stuff out and generally it's a good idea to do so, especially if you have kids. It's always best to make a fresh start, especially
if the past occupants were prone to addictions or other problems; those can tend to sort of "seep into" a home even when new people are living there.
Energy will tend to recreate itself if not consciously changed and cleared.
The most common thing I've found is "old lady house" where an old lady who lived in a house a long time, whether she's dead or still alive (living in
a nursing home or whatever) won't let go of the house and can actually become a rather annoying interfering type of presence depending on whether she
"approves" of the new occupants or not! You have every right to claim the space as yours and send these gals packing!
In one of our homes one of my cats alerted me to the presence of an old lady spirit whose family had owned the property a long time; she had been dead
for some 15 years but never really LEFT; my cat came to me, her eyes all big, and I could hear her saying, "THE LADY IS HERE! THE LADY IS HERE!" I
could tell my cat didn't like this woman's energy terribly much.
So I sat down to do some spiritual work and gently made contact with the lady. She wasn't a bad sort, although she was a bit neurotic, religious, and
intense. We had a good chat and made our own arrangements (basically she just wanted to know that we would appreciate and look after the home) and she
went about her business, never to return.
In the ghostbusting work I've done over the years I have to say the "old lady still in her house" problem is the primary one I've seen, over and over
again. Too many women of a certain era tied their whole identity to issues like whether their house was spotless, whether things were running a
certain way in the home, and so on --- becoming real domestic control freaks; but this was just because they HAD no control of other things in their
lives, the domestic sphere was the only world in which they had influence, so their energies often became incredibly intense surrounding issues of
house and home. This problem isn't as bad for women of more modern ages, who tend to also spend a good deal of time outside the home and whose
self-esteem isn't so tied to, you know, whether all the cobwebs are banished from their house!
(Good Lord, if people judged me on that one, I'd
never get any rest.)
