As one of my teachers for this work, Betsy Bergstrom, says..."Spirits like places...and a body is one of those places."
If you think about it, there are plenty more bodies than buildings. Just like how spirits (more commonly known as "ghosts") can inhabit a building, they can also inhabit bodies! This is actually a common and natural occurrence, however undesirable, and often misunderstood or perceived as frightening due to misrepresentation in tv shows and movies. The spirits who occupy bodies, or those who attach to the energetic fields of people, need kindness, care, support and assistance to naturally let go of the unfavorable situation they are in, and transition (with ease) to an ideal and better place.
Betsy calls this sacred work Compassionate Depossession. Compassion is needed to assist the misplaced spirit to gracefully release the bind they have to their host. We call the spirits of this work suffering beings, because they are suffering within the nature of the location they reside (on top of what led them there). When destiny calls, they want help to be freed from their non-ideal situation, restored to their true self and re-directed to somewhere of benefit to them.
Possession, or overshadowing, occurs when a (human or non-human) spirit or soul knowingly or unknowingly attaches to a person due to a variety of reasons. The spirit is attracted to the host in some way, which then leads to the attachment. These spirits could be loved ones passed on, ancestors, spirits of the land, elementals, animal spirits, nature spirits and more. Some attachments are due to the spirit trying to protect the human; other spirits may be hurting, lost or confused and looking for refuge with the host. The susceptibility level for a spirit attachment depends on empathic tendencies, whether the person was at the wrong place at the wrong time, has an entangled past with someone, or has been weakened in some way (physically, mentally, emotionally or spiritually). It's often not the client's or the spirit's fault that the binding occurs.
This session is performed alongside skilled spiritual allies to resolve spirit attachment in a way that benefits both the overshadowed client and the undesired or entangled spirit. This work is approached WITHOUT force and WITH a stern gentleness and compassionate neutrality.
The shamanic, psychic & intuitive healing techniques that I may use in a Spirit Release session include: smudging, reading your energy, communion the undesired energy or suffering being, mediumship, psychopomp-ing, journeying, energy clearing work, curse-unraveling, divination, drumming, rattling, chanting.
Psychopomp is a Greek word that translates as "conductor of souls" or "guide of souls". Psychopomp techniques are used in this work to support the soul of the suffering being in their passage to a better place.
A spirit attachment may manifest as: a strong feeling of "something's off", negative self-talk, confusion, disrupted or displaced thinking, feeling cloudy or constricted, fatigue, sudden onset of or prolonged experience of unexplained sensations, anxiety/depression, an energy blockage, bizarre medical issues or bodily phenomena, strong or sudden aversions/phobias/desires, mental illness, emotional dysregulations, achiness, tenderness or pain in specific areas of the body, sudden changes in the state of mind, body or spirit, addiction and more.
My experience: I have completed the Basic Compassionate Depossession training taught by Betsy Bergstrom in April 2021.
This session includes additional energy healing work to ensure the client is whole, empowered and restored to their authentic self after the spirit is released.
