I assure you that my “left brain” hated typing that title. As if what I do each day isn’t odd enough — guiding clients in identifying and returning empathically absorbed energy is ‘a bit out there’ — now I’m going to step into that discomfort by telling you what I’ve found to be by far and away the best way of clearing entities.
I don’t advertise this service per se — but when a subject comes up repeatedly during sessions and in group work and I intuit how to work with it and we get amazing results, it’s time to speak to that.
What is An Entity?
I’ve heard many ideas on the subject of entities. Some say they’re lost, disembodied souls. Others say they’re non-Earth bound energies, and some go as far as to say they’re the manifestations of The Big Red Guy. And no, I don’t mean NBA Hall of Famer Bill Walton.
But you know what? To me, it's little matter where they’re from or who they are. What matters more is what they’re here for and how do we heal what they're pointing to.
I’ve seen practitioners talk to the entity, various versions of “Go back to where you belong” and alike. I’m really not trying to be a wise a$$ but doesn’t that assume they have enough intelligence to listen to a conversation and follow instructions? (And understand your native tongue!?!?) That may be possible, but those entities I’ve worked with seemed more like lost babies than fully cognizant beings capable of what we describe as a two-way conversation. And if they were intelligent, they’d have a reason to be there and might not leave just because we ask them to. I’ve heard other practitioners’ ideas as well, but none (that I’ve met anyway) address WHY the entities attach to a person. Isn’t that the X factor for a permanent healing?
Similar to how most mind-body medicine works, or how I help people with Empathic Illness, we can’t just address the symptom. Well, we can of course, but that’s going to get you temporary results at best. And while that’s okay if that’s all that’s available, eventually you’ll tire of seeking more and more healing work from numerous books, workshops and practitioners. All are well meaning of course, but if the actual causes aren’t addressed, you’ll continue searching.
What I’ve intuited is that similar to a key opening only one particular lock, entities are attracted to a particular vibration. I “see” this as an energetic void that entities enter, but I don’t see the entities as evil.
Are There “Negative Energies”?
Even an angel when seen through the eyes of fear can be scary. A gentle reminder: it’s not what happens to us, nor about pointing the finger of blame outward, but rather taking responsibility for what and who we attract and why, and then responding consciously, compassionately and lovingly, rather than re-acting. True growth is becoming strong in our energetic, mental, physical and spiritual bodies, with or without an outside reminder to do so.
I see these entities as reminders. Messengers letting us know we have an energetic weakness. I then intuit what caused the weakness and address that directly. When we fill the hole from the inside out, the entity no longer is attracted to that void (a particular vibration) in that person. It will leave peacefully. And it will stay away.
How do we fill the hole? That depends on what caused it!
It could be stress, illness, or a feeling of separation. It could be guilt, fear, or over-responsibility. It could also be a host of things I’ve not yet seen, but by being present and asking Source, or a medical intuitive, or even a trusted friend what that message is, we can then get a clear idea of what needs addressing and how to to do so! (Note to your mind's question you likely just asked: quality self analysis often is difficult, especially if the entity has a hold on you!) Once the message is made clear, the fear of entities is often automatically replaced with gratitude for the message, and isn’t that a higher vibration that always brings us closer to healing and wholeness? Then, do the deeper work with myself or another practitioner to fill the energetic void... from the inside out.
Anything you fight gets more energy. So do you want to focus on the problem or the solution?
Embrace the messengers and the message, take appropriate action (too many variables to list in a short blog, and the process is best done on an individual needs basis anyway because what works for some might not work for others), and they’ll leave you be. Really, they'll leave you willingly, easily, and even gracefully. And in my experience, this can happen in a few minutes. I can't recall a session where this had to be revisited.
No one or no thing wants to (can!) live where they're not getting what they need. When you've healed the underlying weakness, they'll find another person to inhabit. While that may not feel good to hear, remember, it taught you something about yourself, and now it's going to teach something to another.
Let it go with love and by doing the deeper work with the guidance of a trusted and intuitive practitioner, as opposed to having someone else do it for you. This way, there is a deeper learning that occurs.
Deeper healing comes with being guided through a tangible, visceral experience of doing the work. This way, your body learns as much as your mind does. Healing without full body learning isn't healing, it's symptom management only. More on this can be found in my book, Empathipedia: Healing for Empaths & Highly Sensitive Persons.
And, because you're an empath and care about others, please know that it's not your job to heal the entity. That's not true caring, it's more likely over-responsibility made manifest.
