A couple who live in an apartment at Gran Alacant wrote in to the Coast Rider to enquire what they could do about an apparition they have seen in their flat. This is the reply:
It sounds like you have an attachment to the building in which you live, and in particular it seems to like your property. This attachment could be either a person or an animal - either way an entity which has decided that it is not ready yet to pass over. Often this happens when a life is taken away at short notice, without warning, where the spirit (we are all spirit living on this earth incidentally) has not come to terms with their sudden demise. It is similar to us on this earthly plane. If something comes from out of the blue to shock us then it takes us a day or so to come to terms with exactly what has happened.
For some people, a nasty, expected shock may take years to overcome, even a lifetime. I am wondering if a construction worker had a nasty accident during the building works. If you feel like removing this entity, there are a few things you can do. You can ask a medium to attend the property to cleanse it or if you feel like taking matters into your own hands, you can do the following. Get a sage smudging stick (available in holistic shops, psychic fairs, or purchased on line), hold it over a saucer and light it. Blow the flames out when the fire has 'taken', and blow again on it several times so that it is smouldering.
You need the saucer as whilst it is burning as bits will drop off which will be extremely hot. Now go around the apartment waving this in the air, start at the front door, pay special attention to doorways, window areas, corners, under tables etc - entities like 'hiding' in cluttered corners. Then get some sea salt - that is the easy part being near Alicante and the salt lakes! Also get some fresh garlic. Put a small amount of salt in corners of the rooms as well as in the nooks and crannies. Then pop some of the garlic cloves in the corners, on top of door frames, window frames, on top of the wardrobe, in cupboards etc. Say the Lord's Prayer, which I am sure you know and then go around the property either clapping or ringing a bell loudly. This disturbs the spirit and encourages it to move on. The salt, garlic and sage are all for protection. Now to protect yourself! Get some more of the sea salt, this time a large handful or two. Fill a bath with water and get in it. Salt again is cleansing and removes energies from around your body.
Now, this is the important part. You must submerge your head under the water, so hold your nose and lean back and dunk your entire head! This is particularly important and must be done as if you don't dunk your head, you are breaking the protection link. For any females out there planning on doing this exercise, do not wear a shower cap - you must get your head including your hair soaked with the salty water. Some of you by now may be thinking well what about going for a swim in the sea, surely that will do the trick! But no, you must have the bath in the property where the psychic activity is present. The last thing to do to complete the cleansing is to ask the spirit to leave your property, to go into the light. Then say, I seal this house with love and light. Maybe say another prayer if you wish. To keep the momentum going, playing loud rousing music will lift the energies and lighten the overall mood.
I realise that this couple are 'content' with their energies but I am certain that there are other CoastRider readers who are not quite as comfortable in their homes as they might be, without being able to 'put a finger on it'. The above exercise is a wonderful way to harmonise a property be their entities in it or not!
If this had been posted at the start of the month, I’d say it was an April Fool’s joke but it wasn’t; this is supposedly for real!
Now, if you will excuse me, I have to go for my salt water bath and just for precaution I am taking a bunch of garlic in one hand and a bible in the other.
