Knowing how to discern the difference between spirits & entities is an ability that is often underdeveloped and could be potentially dangerous if a naive spiritual seeker finds their body an unwilling host for a parasitic entity. Many people that I have come into contact with in my years of service have gone blindly into communication with spirit, or have trusted their health and welfare to an inexperienced spiritual teacher. The seeker rarely questions the motives of either. New Age spirituality is a billion dollar a year business. With that kind of money being passed around, it invites all sorts of charlatans and woefully inexperienced individuals.
I have seen too many take it for granted that because spirits & entities are not physical, that they must be more aware then humans are regarding the workings of the metaphysical. The truth is, nothing could be further from the truth. First of all spirit is nothing more than body consciousness after the body has become deceased. An entity is a Self that sheds the body, but because of fear, attachment or other reasons did not ‘go to the light’. Entities are no more intelligent or aware than they were as incarnated humans. They are also just as dishonest and manipulative as they were incarnated. A Self without a body is not going to experience anything besides darkness and confusion if it does not go to the light. That means the last awareness they possessed in a body is the same awareness they have without one.
Spirit is the disembodied dream. Entities are the disembodied dreamers. Spirits are harmless. Entities can be potentially very harmful. Spirits do not need a body to ‘survive’. Entities require a host body to continue existing in this reality. Spirit can only present itself as what it was in its lifetime – be it the personality of the grandmother, brother, parent, child, friend, etc. Aside from some characteristics of the persona lived in its life, spirits have no deep or enlightening things to offer. Mediumship readings are essentially a laundry list of attachments and lingering behavioral patterns between spirit and people still here that the spirit resonates with.
Entities, however, are a completely different creature altogether. They need to either move in on your body’s energies without asking, or be invited in by gullible spiritual seekers that want the mysterious visitor to be their ‘spirit guide’. People are not even aware that they allow their bodies to become hosts for these parasitic entities. They rarely question the quality of information being offered. Be it a holy figure, and angel, an alien emissary, or whatever guise it takes – I have never once read or heard any channeled or offered information that exceeded what a 13 year old girl could come up with. But the person gets intoxicated on the mysterious connection.
Without a body, an earthbound Self attaches itself to the most likely candidate that is still incarnated, be it a loved one, friend, or someone they resonate with through appetites such as drugs, drinking, or sexuality. The physical consumption of being incarnated is changed to an emotional consumption. It is through your emotions that these parasitic entities get to again feel alive. Over time they become very adept at tweaking severe mood swings in the host. Drugs and alcohol are the easiest and most common way to offer your body as a potential host for a parasitic entity. The lower the body’s natural defenses and your personal will, the easier it is to parasite.
The most common place to pick up a parasitic entity is in a hospital or nursing home. This is for two reasons – number one it is likely where their bodies have died, and number two both buildings are full of weakened immune systems. A body with a healthy immune system can easily defend against a mild parasitic attack. But a body under anaesthesia or distracted by trauma is like having the house unlocked while thieves are roaming about. When the immune system is unable to remove the parasite then more drastic measures are undertaken. Many ‘incurable’, ‘unexplained’ illnesses can be directly attributed to a body trying to fight off a parasitic entity. I know, I have removed over 1000 of them over the years and in all cases the mysterious ailments disappeared within a few days.
Most bodies can drive out an inexperienced parasitic entity with fevers or other mild forms of quick responses. If the entity has been around for some time however, and has learned how to move from body to body it may have become very adept at using a body up before moving on to the next. The goal of the body when confronted with these unwelcomed guests is to make the body as uncomfortable as possible. Many unexplained, sudden illnesses can be readily explained if one imagined a defensive battle taking place within the body. The more uncomfortable the body appears in an unexplained illness, the more likely it is dealing with a very adept parasite.
Stripped away of the romanticism and mysterious nature of what inexperienced seekers think are spirits, we can soon begin to get a picture of the unhealthy relationship of parasite and host that has existed nearly unchecked for millenia between embodied humans and disembodied humans. Many spiritual seekers never question the identity or motives of ‘helpful’ entities, and fall headlong into the romanticism of having a special relationship with a very ‘knowledgable’ teacher. It makes no more sense to surrender your personal space to an unseen entity stranger than it does to invite human strangers into your home without any reservation. I do not make these claims without a wealth of experience.
I also had a circle of ‘spirit guides’ in my early years as a seeker. It was what the teachers in the spirituality class told me was the correct guidance to have. They were all except one Native American. As a beginner I felt so honored and special to have them assisting me. But given my nature to question answers to death until I run out of questions to ask, I noticed very early on the limited guidance and outright incorrect information I was often receiving from them. I saw the same relationship with the people I was going to classes with. Their ‘guides’ offered very basic wisdom that the seeker likely already knew, but because the information came from these ‘spirit guides’ it somehow gained more depth than was evident. Entities are exceptionally cunning at telling their hosts whatever they emotionally desire to hear.
Not all entities are bad/evil. Some are just frightened souls that do not know how to move on, or do not want to for whatever attachment they have here in this world. But in order for a disembodied soul to experience anything earthbound it must have a body to exist within. Without a body’s sense organs it is essentially darkness. That might explain why the light is such an unmistakably bright white light. It is designed to draw the newly separated Self to their next physical destination.
The entities that have spent a very long time here have lost their morality or sense of humanity for the most part and can be very close to what one might label ‘evil’ or a ‘demon’. They move from host to host and leave a trail of used up bodies and emotionally traumatized people in their wake. I have battled with some very potent nasty parasitic entities in my day. Without a body to experience within, they must attach to another unconscious Self that still possesses a physical body.
I purposely did not get very deep into spirits. I have never come across a spirit that was anything but harmless, albeit on occasion a bit annoying. Mediums are essentially just tapping into the dreams that your loved ones had while incarnated. That ‘seeing my life pass before my eyes’ episode is the Self being stripped of its spirit before making the journey to the light. This is why most people that return from a near death experience and witness the panoramic life view often become spiritually advanced individuals having had their fictions stripped away. Key to remember is spirits are the dream, entities are the dreamer.
What I would suggest, for those who are open to at least questioning their relationship with ‘spirit’ is this – do the research on them. When they give you an identity, such as Chief LottsaBull, or Cleopatra, or Jesus, or Archangel Michael, etc etc…question them, and do not accept half answers. If they truly possess such a wealth of information or holiness then they should know the basics such as…full name, place of incarnation, date of incarnation, description of surroundings during incarnation. And check the facts. If it is a famous personality, especially religious figures, ask yourself why are they working with me, and does my awareness and emotional state reflect being aided by such a holy master?
Always question your own motives. How does your relationship with this ‘spirit’ make you feel? Are you feeling special because they have chosen you to working with? Are you ignoring all the times that this entity has steered you wrong, or didn’t know anything that you couldn’t have figured out yourself? Is it fear of self-reliance that keeps you needing an external teacher and guide? Beginners in Self awareness will not be happy with me saying that spirit guides, angels, channelled beings, and visitations by holy figures are parasitic entities. But I am just as experienced as any medium or spiritual teacher that is incapable of questioning their money makers and their standing in a very competitive spiritual community.
The information in this essay are my perceptions based on my experiences, during and after my relationship first working with, then eventually removing entities from a parasitic role with people. If you are not even going to question your knowledge of, or relationship with ‘spirit’, then I would guess that you are where you will be. I do not remove parasitic entities from anyone that does drugs or drinks alcohol – to any degree. I do not remove parasitic entities from anyone that is still at a level of awareness where they welcome them into their lives dabbling into witchcraft, ouija boards etc. And I do not use my precious time scanning everyone with emotional issues to see if they have one…so don’t ask.
