Hello all! I'm new to this sight, but have visited her frequently. I love the broad range of interest's here so I hope to get several opinions on your thoughts of Spirit Keeping (essence of spirit in a vessel)? I am a new spirit keeper and as of yet no luck with communication, feelings, ext. Any and all comments welcome!
Spirits don't like to be confined. If you have successfully trapped one, PLEASE, keep that vessel out of reach of clumsy people. I trapped one in 1995. When a friend of mine accidentally broke the vessel, things just went haywire for my whole circle of friends.
I hate to burst your bubble, but "spirit keeping" is just a bunch of nonsense. To think that you can own a spirit and keep it as a pet or whatever you think you're doing is ridiculous. "Spirit keepers" are nothing but scammers and delusional children.

Instead of the idea of trapping spirits, perhaps you can try working with a spirit, and if it agrees, associate an object with the energy of the spirit. This is a bit more respectful towards the spirits involved and still allows you to have a way to help connect to the spirit even if you're feeling off spiritually.
To the above comments, Spirit Keeping is not about confining spirits, it is about aiding them in protection from negative forces on other planes and to keep their essence alive on the Physical realm. We speak to them as if they were alive, and we treat them with dignity and respect. I should know, as I am a Spirit Keeper myself.
It is a personal benefit of reaching a higher connection from the other realms. Again, there is no literal confinement of spirit forms involved. The spirits I work with are my partners in magick and life.
