Since the beginning of recorded time,the earth plane has been beset by those of unkind and someimes downright evil intent. The problems these wrongdoers cause can affect life while they are down here, but they may also return to plague us from the lower parts of the spirit world they inhabit. So how do we combat that?
One of the unfortunate consequences of present day psychic activities of the unschooled, ill educated, financially motivated and anything goes varieties, is an increase in psychically generated disturbances and attraction for low level spirit entities via the channels thereby set up. This has led to innocent recipients of such base spirit attentions having to seek appropriate people to rid themselves of their unwanted visitors.
Visitations from astral plane entities of a low physical nature require careful and emphatic remedying. The usual and old tradition of exorcism with bell, book and candle will still work – as long as the person performing such ministry is spiritually strong and unyielding in resolve to get rid of the unwelcome visitors. The other side of any effort to dispel a member of the dark forces is the attraction that may be existent on this earthly side. There has to be a genuine desire to be rid of these negative incursions on the part of those in receipt of their attentions.
This can be effected by a willingness to make sincere invocation to the guardians of the Light, the powers of Light and Love for their attendance and assistance, thus entering into the higher spiritual level, the company and healing zone of the exorcising ministry. If a bell is not available, a high pitched tinging sound to set up a resonant frequency can be made by tapping a metal spoon rapidly on a glass (about 1 to 2 a second in 10 second bursts).
The book refers to the Bible, but any scriptural testament with uplifting passages will be acceptable to our friends on the other side of life. The words recited set up a positive frequency on which higher spirit operates. If you don’t have a candle, any light will suffice – a lighter, a torch, or even a few matches will throw a light frequency into relief – as St Paul says, ‘We are the children of Light. Put on the full armour of God, the helmet of salvation, the breast plate of righteousness, the belt of truth, the shoes of peace, and in your hand the sword of the Spirit and above all the shield of faith’, which as Paul says, ‘Quenches all the fiery darts of the wicked’!
As Paul says in his prison letter to the Church, carried there for him by Tychicus, this complete armour assists you to ‘stand against the powers’ as he puts it, ‘the world rulers of this present darkness – the spirit forces of wickedness in the heavenly sphere’. Of course we understand as Spiritualists that there are levels of spirit beneath that heavenly strata wherein such nasties dwell! Paul also knew that, but translations and scribes of lesser knowledge oftimes now as then prevail…
After making your declaration of good intent, that all you do is for good, truth and in The Name of Light and Love, walk round every part of the space/ room where the problems have manifested reciting a passage from the Book that you have chosen. Make a sound of bells and shine a light around the area too. This is usable for indoors or outside. Some who seek to help exorcise unpleasant spirit entities or occurrences that manifest themselves on this physical plane make use of blessed or holy water. This is sprinkled around the affected area with prayers and sometimes the sign of the cross. It may work. It is possible to carry out exorcisms or cleansing of earthly spaces without any paraphernalia.
To deter the ungodly it’s a good idea to wear clean, plain clothing over a well washed body – and take only water and a plain biscuit or piece of bread before performing the exorcism. First make sure that the people or person being troubled is sure that they wish to be rid of the disturbance. Then after making a declaration to yourself and your helpers that everything you do is in The Name of Love, Light and Truth, begin to go quietly from room to room telling whoever and whatever is there to be gone immediately. Enter into no discourse or debate should you receive communication, stand your ground (as Paul advises in Ephesians 6) and repeat the dismissal.
Give your friends and helpers in Spirit credit for being able to deal with any unquiet soul on their side. The best method in my opinion is the first mentioned time honoured plan of action, followed by a Holy Communion with all concerned.
