Haunted House Cleanse

As I have mentioned before in many times on this site. one way of dealing with unwanted ghosts in a haunted house is with a good spiritual house cleanse. This allows the owners to help remove the spirit or entities in a gentle and non aggressive way.

As a tip, when It comes to cleansing it is important to remember you are just trying to help guide the spirit to move on or to better understand its reason for being there.

Try not to be closed minded in this situation as the spirit may even be someone you used to know, or a spirit of the family that has passed.

Things to be noted before the to do list are that ghosts are much like you and I other than the physical aspect. They cannot harm you unless you feel overly emotional. Basically put, ghosts feed off emotions and during times of extreme negativity can become active. So being aware of this is part of the cure.

Stand you ground emotional, this does not mean be mean to the spirit, i recommend being respectful, however you must be firm when asking the entity to move on. Fear or doubt during this process can cause weakness in your removal and thus have little effect or no effect or even temporary effect.

Positive emotions, ones away from the fear or doubt spectrum have uplifting effects and thus have an protective element. These are the ones to focus on, positivity, respect and belief in what you are doing. Without belief most forms of energy control will not be effective as well.. It is one thing to believe and see ghosts it is another to believe in your house cleanse is not working. You must believe it will work, full stop..

In fact without belief most magick will not work as well. Belief is a core function in all forms of magick and protection, and the same goes with a good house cleanse.

How To Perform a Cleanse?

  1. What you should first in open up all windows in the house, let in as much light as possible..sage
  2. Buy some sage, it can be bought from most alternative shops or can be bought by clicking here.
  3. Burn the sage in the house starting at the most active area.. This area will also be your last area you come back to as well.
  4. As you burn the sage walk around the house and ask the spirit to leave. Be friendly but firm.
  5. You can say “It is time to move on now” or “Go to the light”, the light being a powerful suggestion as light is a door in the spirit world where the spirit needs to go ultimately anyway..
  6. Once you have done all rooms, if you can leave the windows open and the house open for 3 days. Clearing a house effectively is not so much like drinking an instant coffee, time is needed. Plus doing for a few days makes the move on much more effective.
  7. Each day keep burning the sage and be as positive as possible. If you notice activity during these three days, do not worry, that is normal.
  8. After a few days you should feel lighter yourself. This is because negative energy should of dissipated that may have been holding the ghost.
  9. Sometimes kids can be emotionally holding spirits to an area so be aware if you have kids that may be involved.
  10. Welcome to your new house. Once finished go around with pure salt and line the edges of the walls with it, this is said to block negativity and spirits from returning to the house.
  11. If for some reason a few weeks later activity starts up again, feel free to do again, however this time you may want to involve a psychic that is experienced in doing on a regular basis as well.

Please note, some people prefer holy water when doing a house cleanse, this is because back to my original point on how powerful belief is, if one is religious and believes in it, it thus gives the action more power and more emotional control. Others may just hold a bible, to another religion they may burn candles. If these tools increase your belief with conviction to your actions of removing the spirit then they can also have a massive effect.

Similar in a way to what i suggested here with why some people see spirits and other do not.

  1. Hey Timon, Did a House Cleanse recently with your suggestions and all has gone quiet in the house.

    Hopefully I do not here from them again. :)

    Greetings from El Paso Texas. This advice is spot on. Salt does not need to be sea salt. All salt is sea salt. Where ever salt is found is where there was a sea or ocean many years ago. Most of my friends do not like to use salt with iodine in it.
    True again, there is a big difference in a ghost and a demon. I had a bad experience with a demon many years ago and never want to experience that again but have never found a truly “bad” ghost. I talk to the ghost and attempt to make friends. It has always worked for me.
    Namaste, Ken

    • Thanks for the addition Ken, yeah Demons are a completely different spectrum in comparison to ghosts, after all ghosts were once alive. Demons on the other hand hard to say if they were ever human..

    My Mother is still here and hated living in this house. Never said why. I moved in with new husband to clean it out after she moved to assisted living. Now I know why she hated it. There is something here. Voices, footsteps, lights on and off, tv screwing up and messing with the bed. If I hadn’t seen it myself, wouldn’t have believed it. First it was feeling like the dog jumped up on the bed. (Dog was not in bedroom and he thought I had let him in) My husband experienced that. I flew from the room when he started accusing me of letting the dog in because I kept telling him something was off in this house. Then I was in bed looking at fb on my phone, and felt the edge of the bed go down, like someone sat on it or was pushing the edge, and looked that way, and there it was going up and down. By this time, I wasn’t panicking, but made firm resolution to do something about it. Used your clearing method, plus a declaration paper a neighbor gave me to read while I was smoking the house. Plus I sprayed Holy Water on everything and every corner. Had to do it twice. Have not had any of the above things happen since. BUT feel something is still here, waiting. Your thoughts?

    • Hey Brenda,
      Ghosts can just be stirred up sometimes or on occasions they may be recently passed relatives. Sometimes they are trying to tell us something and sometimes they are lost spirits.. Was there any renovations done on the house recently? This can stir up once dormant activity… With the cleansing process one can also do it regularly like once a month to help keep spirits at bay.. You can also salt around your barriers of your house..

  4. HI, we have lived in our house a year, I started noticing paranormal activity after my son was born in march. First my daughters light started turning on and now its always my sons light. We had company stay here this weekend so my kids slept in our room with us. My baby woke up screaming and then he just went quiet. I looked over and I seen something leaning over the playpen. I rubbed my eyes looked to see if my daughter was still on her matress and looked back and it was still there, I looked at it for about a minute hoping I was just seeing things but then I seen it swaying back and forth. It dissapered once I shined my phone light on it. My question what can I do to get rid of it? I keep staying positive and try not to think about it. I don’t believe its here to hurt us but I do want it gone.

    • Hey Jasmine,
      Firstly to begin, I recommend watching my other post 3 day haunted house cleanse.. This can help if needed. As you said the ghost is not doing any harm, however I am concerned that it is drawn to your kid. You may want to keep your kid closer if possible for a while until you feel the activity slows down. If however it does not slow down then yeah do the full 3 day cleanse I recommend here on the site.

      Staying positive is a good thing as well. Let me know how it goes, if you do a cleanse or if the activity acts up again.

      You may also want to write it down when it happens, may notice a pattern..

      I hope that helps.

    I sage OFTEN, however, I think I’ve angered whatever IS residing in my house, so I think whatever IS here wants to hang around until it gets back at me. I don’t know, I just know IT WON’T GO AWAY. Actually I have more than one spirit in my home. I had taken some EVP’s last year, and there was guy somewhere in Arizona working with me on trying to get rid of this. Anyway, I sent him the EVP’s that I’d taken. I didn’t tell him what I heard on it because I didn’t want him to be influenced by it. Anyway, when he got back in touch with me AFTER he listened to it, he told me that whatever is here seems to be malicious. He even let a friend of his listen to it with him, and they both heard what I did – which was chains rattling, people talking like they were arguing, children and women, crying and screaming, you could hear VERY LOUD sounds of someone being hit over and over again – it was truly hard to listen to because you could just hear people being tortured. Anyway, I couldn’t explain the hearing of the chains because it reminded me of something off Scooby Doo, BUT when my husband started renovating our house and gutting everything (which made the activity go off the charts), I was cleaning the rafters in the ceiling area BEFORE he put another ceiling up, and there were very heavy bolted hooks hanging approximately 3-4 feet apart. It looked like the kind of hooks you would hang a very large chain from. So THEN I started wondering if THAT was where the chains were being hung from that I heard on the EVP – it CREEPED me out to say the least. I asked my husband to remove them – and he couldn’t even get them out. PART of our house was built in the late 1800’s, and then there have been some added on parts since the 1970’s. Where the hooks were hanging from was the part of the house that was from the late 1800’s.
    I have noticed, even since the first time I did it, that when I do burn sage, SHIT HITS THE CEILING, as in, things get really evil bad QUICKLY for a couple of days, everybody is fighting and mad, anger from nowhere comes up. I’ve been trying to get rid of this stuff since 2009-2010, and so far, all I’ve become is MORE CONFUSED. This stuff is truly confusing. I usually ALWAYS get some good stuff on EVP’s, and frequently get some good pictures as well.
    Oh, but I just found something else that I wanted to ask you about. And this is kind of important to me because, well, it scared the crap out of me when I saw it. Anyway, I bought a black light scanner type light that can pick up anything from bodily fluids to anything else that can’t usually be seen with the naked eye. We JUST got done renovating our bedroom, we did everything from new carpet to fresh coats of paint on the walls – it is practically a new bedroom – anyway, I went in there with the black light the other night, and cut it on – it literally looked like someone was taking some sort of glow in the dark substance and splashing it ALL OVER MY WALLS, ceilings, and floors. It was CREEPY AS HELL. So I showed my husband and he starts trying to make excuses for it like, maybe it’s the paint causing that, HOWEVER, we used THE SAME paint in my boys room and their walls aren’t like that. Do you have ANY idea what that could be? When I cut the black light on, it glowed a VERY BRIGHT greenish yellow. It kind of looked like someone took a paintball gun and shot the whole room up. You could even see the substance dripping down the wall from the main source of each splatter. The ceiling AND the carpet was that way to. I know I sound crazy as I’ve been so fixated on finding out WHAT THE HELL is going on around here. But I promise you, all I’m trying to do is get to the bottom of everything and try to bring things BACK to normal again. It’s gotten so bad that sometimes I think my husband is mind f***ing with my head. I just don’t understand WHY he’s not as upset about seeing that crap all over the walls as I am. I’ve gotten to where I don’t even want to sleep up there because I keep seeing that crap all over the walls, IN MY HEAD everytime I enter the room. I’ve left several posts on other articles in your blog, but I PROMISE YOU I AM NOT making this stuff up. SO MUCH stuff has happened in this house since we bought it that I can’t even remember SOME of it, but it REALLY IS starting to affect my health and HAS BEEN for the past couple of years. I puke EVERY DAY, my ears will get this deaf, numb sound where all other sound is drowned out by the deafness and numbness, my 20/20 eyesight has been blurry for the past five weeks (not ALL the time, just MOST the time), I’m tired 24/7, but can’t sleep except for 2-4 hour intervals, I have some sort of oppressive feeling going on which completely drains me of any motivation I might have, I keep smelling some sort of burning smell, and if I’m not smelling THAT, I’m smelling some sort of other nauseating smell which is what usually leads me to puking. I’m beginning to see life as very complicated to figure out, but at the rate I’m going now, I feel death is near, and THAT scares me. THAT is THE ONLY thing I’m scared of at this point. I’m not scared OF WHAT is here, I’m scared because I feel it slowly killing me. I’ve TRIED getting into my doctor to have some tests run – but for TWO YEARS NOW, I’ve not been able to get in. If something doesn’t happen HERE to have to reschedule my appointments for, THEN THE DOCTORS OFFICE is calling me having to reschedule for their own personal reasons – so there again – I feel like SOMETHING is blocking me from even getting into my doctor. I’ve made no less than 8 attempts at getting into the doctor. Should I just give up and forget about it, or proceed on? Cause I have to tell you, I’m ready to just give up and wait, just wait. Nothing else is working and I have almost no energy left in me to keep trying.
    I DO practice feng shui, and when I first started applying it, it was a miracle worker – BUT THEN everything I would do after that first year, would end up broken or just disappear, so I even stopped applying feng shui HERE because alot my stuff was getting damaged or vandalized, OR STOLEN. I had a Buddha door knocker on my front door, which was suppose to bring the energy of happiness and positive, it’s ALSO suppose to block negative energy from entering – TWO MONTHS after I hung it on the front door, it disappeared! Also to secure my property from unwanted, negative energy, I went around my property line and hung small mirrors facing out, you know, to reflect anything negative back to it’s source and keep it away from us. You couldn’t see them unless you were looking hard for them, but anyway, THEY ALL ended up being smashed – and THAT is just A COUPLE of the things that have been destroyed that I put up for feng shui reasons. So I stopped doing ANY feng shui to my house JUST BECAUSE I didn’t want anymore of my things destroyed. I’ll still consult for other people, but not on my own house anymore, or at least not to the extent I did when I FIRST started practicing the art of feng shui. I USE to have some very beautiful ancient pieces of art that I used, but since I don’t want them destroyed, I keep those pieces put away now in a safe box.
    THIS SHIT IS CRAZY, and it’s making ME crazy. AND I HATE this house. If I could go back in time to 1999, I would NEVER EVER have bought this house. i WISH I’d have done more research on stuff like this because the FIRST thing I would’ve realized was NOT to buy a house that had been abandoned for SEVEN years. But I was young and dumb and didn’t realize the repercussions of buying a house that was used by squatters and god knows what else, FOR SO LONG. If there are any typos or misspelled words, it’s because my vision is blurry and I can’t see it too well, so sorry for the mistakes.

    • Hey Robin,
      Thanks for the the comment and for sharing your story on the website. Yes, please try to get to the doctors asap to get some tests done asap to make sure you are okay health wise. That is priority when getting weird symptoms in any case.

      In some cases sage by itself can flare up instances in the house. Not sure why this happens as it is all theory when dealing with these energies. Aspects to test for are the electrical system for any bad wiring which maybe fueling the paranormal. Also is there any water below the house, like a underground water source. Water being a big fuel which can in some instances cause EMF’s as well. EMF’s being a common fuel for the paranormal which can be fueled by water nearby or below or bad wiring as well.

      Another option you could try is staying with a friend for a few weeks and see how you feel. See if you start feeling better, etc..
