One of the top issues we see come up time and time again in the forum, helpdesk and emails are people who are writing in due to an uninvited houseguest. Rogue or unbound spirits coming into people's homes is not unusual, it happens with regularity and all the time. There are thousands of rogue spirits moving from location to location as we speak and the majority in and out of the homes and populated locations where they go completely unnoticed by the inhabitants. It just so happens that those writing to us have sensitivities to spirits and paranormal activity and they pick up on the uninvited guests. If it happens to you does that mean bad news? Maybe, but usually not.
Sometimes spirits move about out of sheer curiosity. They move from area to area seeing and absorbing what is around them. They are curious about you, your life, your family, your daily events for a period of time (usually less than a month, sometimes not even 24 hours) and they move on to the next place. Sometimes they come because they want attention and they will harass you, constantly try to be in your sightline by charming or annoying you and will only leave when they are bored of you or when you stop paying them any attention... usually this works best. Once they aren't receiving any acknoledgement from you they are there they move on. Lastly sometimes they are present because they have a purpose for being there. This is when the length of time your uninvited guest will vary greatest.
When a spirit comes to you with purpose their origin can be from many places. If you have friends or family who are in the Arts it could be one of their spirits or a spirit they conjured with the express purpose of helping or hurting you (if it's friends or family let's hope it's the former and not the latter). It could be a pre-destined time for them to come to you... perhaps in a previous life or parallel life you sent the spirit to yourself for a reason and it is there to assist you in one way or another and will leave when their task it done. They could be spirits you knew in a previous life or ancestral spirits that are still bound to your bloodline who come and go, this is common. It could also be the spirit's own work, finding you themselves and realizing they can help in some way. Typically a spirit that appears from nowhere is there to help you, not harm you. They are there to share wisdom, prevent or cause something to happen, protect you, teach you something or provide you with a power or gift you did not have previously. How do you know what they want? Pendulum is the best way to find out if you are not capable of communicating with the rogue spirit through telepathy. Sometimes you won't know why they were there until whatever they came for happens.
However, if someone sent a spirit to harm you it will be evident within less than a hour of the spirit being present. Spirits do not normally come, hang out in your home, bother you to death over months and then leave. When a spirit is sent on errand with a malicious purpose most spells and rituals require the spirit to complete their task within a certain window of time and so you will see the negative effects almost immediately with their presence. What do you do? A few things, if it is a mild spirit you can usually smudge and have them leave. If it is a moderate spirit usually a banishment ritual or lesser banishment ritual (LBR) will work for you just fine and 99% of the time rogue spirits fall within the mild to moderate category. If you've managed to upset some kind of master witch, warlock, priestess, or other high-level practitioner then you might have a severe spirit on your hands and you will need help to rid yourself of it. At that point contact a professional in your area or one that you work with online that you trust. Again, the odds of this happening to you are SLIM.
An uninvited guest is usually not a reason to become panicky or upset. Sometimes you realize the reason they are there and you've worried yourself into a knot for nothing. Always try to keep a level head when encountering rogue spirits, show them respect, find out why they have come to you, 99% of the time it is a positive experience. If you do have problems or issues contact a professional for a second opinion.Tags: rogue spirit, unbound spirit
