Over the years, I've come to learn quite a bit about the unseen world in which we live. Jokingly, I have been described as a ghostbuster when I've helped figure out what's happening within someone's home. I'm cool with that—I LOVED those movies as a kid. Go figure!
With that said, what I share is purely from my own experience and may be complete bullshit but I guess I won't know the truth of it until I'm on the other side. The only proof I have is experiential from the families I've helped, the law enforcement officials who have confirmed what I share matches reality, and my own validations along the way.
So let's talk a bit about energy imprints versus active spirits. I was reminded to share the difference between the two after I helped clear an energy imprint this past weekend. The scientist in me understands that what is created never dies. Even Einstein talked about it years ago, i.e., the quote at the top of this post. It did take me a little while to understand that in some cases, what people are experiencing is simply an energetic replay of something that holds a lot of vibration, like a tragic or an emotional event. Battlefields are famous for this. Other times, they are experiencing spirit who either hasn't crossed over yet and is trying to get their attention/draw energy or one who has, and is trying to get their attention.
This past weekend, I helped clear an energetic imprint. The dog in the home was acting very strange in one room of the house, one area of the bathroom, to be specific. He would go in and stare at nothing (in a specific part of the room) for an extended period of time. Turns out, this was due to the an emotional event that occured in that area. He was seeing it and sensing it. Once I tapped into the energy of the room, I was able to clear it using a few methods. First, I drew upon my Reiki healing training and cleared the room with a symbol called Cho Ku Rei. Next, I simply asked that the energetic imprint be cleared. Similar to prayer, I set the clearing intention and asked the owner to let me know how the dog reacts over time.
She wrote me yesterday telling me the dog went into the bathroom, as usual, but then immediately turned around and left the room—not her normal activity prior to the clearing. It made an impression on the owner, for sure.
In other cases, I've helped spirit move on or channeled the messages meant for the folks living in the house. One of the first times I helped a friend who was sensing activity in her house involved helping two souls—two litttle girls—cross into the light (think the TV show, The Ghost Whisperer) who were attached to the land their house was built on. A home on the property burned down, sadly taking the family members with it during the late 1800s. Once the girls crossed, the strange activity in the home stopped. I was so new to channeling that I literally googled, "How do I help cross spirit into the light?" And by George, it worked! Since then, I've helped many souls cross, all the while still wondering how and why it is the way it is. I will never fully understand but I'm happy to help however I can.
I had NO idea when I started channeling that there was such a thing as an energy imprint or how to differientiate it from active spirits. This has all been a learning experience for me. Turns out, there's quite a lot to learn about ghostbustering and thank goodness I haven't had to deal with a giant marshmallow man...yet.
