Spiritual Protection: Symptoms of Spiritual Hitchikers

Many people do need to cleanse their aura of negative energy, but some psychics try to capitalize on the fear surrounding the issue and charge outrageous fees. Too often, the unscrupulous psychics who attempt to charge such high rates don’t fully understand the issue of possession and how to successfully remove negative energy, let alone the basic principle of karma (what goes around comes around). These types of psychics are  frauds and should always be avoided. Negative energy can and does interfere with our lives. It consists of others’ thoughts and feelings, earth bound or lost souls, or on occasion, dark entities. Earth bound or lost souls are the souls of people who have died but, for various reasons, have not yet gone to “the Light.” Loved ones who have died, gone to the Light, and now watch over you do not fall into this category.

Symptoms of being influenced by negative energy or lost souls are feelings of being blocked, unexplainable or extreme anger, fears, sadness, depression, guilt, or anxiety, recurring dreams or nightmares, relationship problems, unexplainable physical symptoms, eating disorders, and the sudden onset of cravings for or addictions to alcohol, drugs, sex or smoking (especially if there are distinct personality changes while under the influence). Other signs include negative emotional or physical reactions to the idea of cleaning your aura or spirit body (such as “part of you” wanting to do it and “part of you” not wanting to do it), reckless behavior, poor memoryand concentration, hearing inner voices (especially with negative messages), feelings of being followed, feeling drained, sudden unexplainable physical problems, and recurring dreams or nightmares. The most common ways of picking up such unwanted and uninvited energy is by weakening the energy field or aura with alcohol, drugs, extremely emotionally trying circumstances, or through sexual abuse, surgery, or illness. An almost guaranteed way of picking up “lost souls” (also known as spiritual hitchhikers) is by using drugs or drinking excessively and then walking through a hospital or cemetery. Unwanted, uninvited energy can also attach before birth, during birth, and during childhood. Some ways to avoid picking up entities (especially important if you are more spiritually sensitive) include the following:

  • Avoid drugs and excess alcohol.
  • Avoid negative people.
  • Mentally surround yourself with White Light whenever you think of it several times each day. Picture a bright light shining out from your solar plexus, surrounding, and protecting you whenever you think of it. Ask for assistance from God and/or guides of the Light.
  • Mentally fill your home and/or office daily with White Light.
  • Burn sage to help clear your energy field and residence.

Upon hearing about the concept of entity possession or attachment, many people think of the movie "The Exorcist". While the subject of possession was exaggerated in the movie for dramatic effect, entity possession or attachment can and does happen. Sometimes the symptoms of entity attachment are very subtle and go unnoticed, and sometimes a person can literally be taken over by one or more entities, sometimes dark, even from or before birth.

There are several books written about this subject, such as The Unquiet Dead, by Dr. Edith Fiore. In her book, Dr.Fiore explains that after people die, they usually go to “the Light,” as written about in many life after deathbooks. Sometimes, however, souls don’t go to the Light for various reasons and instead remain earthbound. This is especially true in certain cases where someone dies angry, an addict of sex or any substance, or if they die a violent or sudden death. These souls resist going into the Light for various reasons and instead seek out and merge with someone in a physical body who can feed their addiction, has similar feelings of anger, depression, or other fears, or they may stay in close proximity to loved ones they knew while in a physical body. Often the intense feelings at the time of death are held onto and then felt by whomever the entity attaches to or merges with. Even though most entities don’t mean any harm they may still drain the energy of the host, causing tiredness or depression, and the host may easily mistake the entities’ thoughts and desires as his/her own.

Other books on the subject include:

  • SpiritReleasement Therapy by William J. Baldwin, D.D.S, Ph.D.
  • RemarkableHealings by Shakuntala Modi, M.D.
  • Remote Depossession by Irene Hickman, D.O.


Some experts and therapists who help clients release entities believe that 85% or more of the population may have entities around them or within them that are interfering with their lives.
