How can you determine if you or someone you love is being possessed or haunted by evil spirits? And how do I get them out of my house or out of a person without inflicting more harm on the person who is being controlled?
Well it could be an evil spirit but don't rule out a build up of negative energy. [think about how you feel once you enter a room right after a fight. The energy still lingers] if the person is going through tough times or you haven't cleansed in a while [or ever] negative energy could build up and effect people similar to an 'evil spirit' would. Either way cleansing and protecting solves everything [its just easier if it's simply energy] if it's an 'evil spirit' you should also sense it, possibly see its aura, hear it, things might move or disappear randomly. You might also notice more problems in specific areas of the home or with specific object/people if it's a spirit instead of simply energy [and as for demons, very similar to spirits only in told you would also notice a smell and physical indications, but I've gotten scratches/bruises from spirits]
As for how to cleanse/protect it really depends on your materials, time, and how tricky the energy in question is. If you have sage smudge just waft the smoke into every inch of the house and the job is usually done and dusted. If you don't like the smell of sage [or you have a sensitive smoke detector] sea salt and water in a spray bottle works too [you could also add lemon juice and rosemary for an extra oomph too] or if you don't want to spray everything placing a bowl of the water mixture in the corners of each room for a day can also do the trick I'm told. [make sure you have the doors/windows open so the energy can escape] once you've cleansed hang a protection charm above the doors, say a protection chant, anoint the doors with protection oil, etc. You friend should also have a cleansing bath in salt water and wear a protection charm or at the very least shield their energy daily. [another option when cleaning the home in future to visualize/feel yourself sweeping away negative energy as you clean]
Those are just a few suggestions. Research cleansing and protections I'm sure you'll find tons of options to help.
Through intuition and instinct. It is the same thingy. :) I tried to protect the poeple you want to, also through possession um, that thingy. Tell them to meditate on the Seven Chakras and always but always cleanse the space around them, they places they are at and themselves. You should do it too because if you don't, energy gets gathered and this is like it prevents everything e.g. Magick from working-or working more slowly, energy from flowing better and so on. Also tried to protect the house you are at from getting haunted and have tried to bainish the ones that haunt you and you don't want there from haunting you. :)
