Does entity attachment truly exist? Maybe, maybe not. This subject came about to me when I asked someone to speak at an event sponsored by Cassadaga Spiritualist Camp. The topic was tossed about, but another was decided upon; however, it really got me thinking.
Prior to my contemplation, I believed that entities could attach. When I say entities, I mean bits of people and feelings. Perhaps, this is best in explained in example.
Backstory: I was married for 25 years, the last three in separation. It took quite some time for me to get over that. Most of us believe when we get married that it will be forever. When forever doesn’t happen, one must work through the emotions of that and the fact that these people will not be with us physically or there for us emotionally. One must heal from this.
This is true in all types of relationships that were fine and then not. My belief is we have etheric cords that connect us to others who are in our lives. Severing the cord is one way of getting rid of the attachment. Sit in meditation, see a scissors cutting that cord and ask that the energy you still have of that person be sent back to them and ask for your energy to be cleansed and returned to you from them. This might have to be done twice depending on the strength of the attachment.
Now the question that comes to me: Can spirit attach to the living? My answer is if you believe it can happen, it does. If you don’t, it doesn’t. It’s that simple. Of course, that is my opinion today. It may change at any given time.
Backstory: I recall early on as medium I went to the home of a client. After giving the information I got, the client stated that she has an entity attachment. Her friend came in from the other room and showed me a short video of the client in attachment mode. She did look differently. I told her that I did not believe in attachments, and most importantly we have the ability to allow or disallow. After more conversation, I psychically picked up on a young gentleman who was quite handsome and looked as if he could manipulate others quite easily. It was realized that this was the boyfriend of her daughter. She did not like him. His energy was thick with her that I believed she thought there was a true spirit attaching. It was the energy of that person.
Now, that I think about it a spirit attachment could happen when a loved one leaves the 3D. The person left behind may have the ability to keep the spirit loved one near them. Some spirits are attached to the earth plane. My belief is that once we leave the earth plane, there is a light that we are to go into. If we do not and after a period of time, the light gets smaller. The spirit does not know where to go, but wanders the earth plane. I truly believe there are lightworkers who assist spirit to look above their head, see the light and go to it. All we can do is guide those lost spirits to the light.
In regards to cutting the etheric cord, it may not always be as easy. I am not a therapist or a counselor. I remind clients of this when needed. At times, I do suggest that perhaps seeing a therapist may be helpful and then share names and numbers if possible.
One area that could be considered is when a medium is channeling spirit. It’s not quite an attachment, but an allowing of spirit to overshadow.
Again, we can allow or disallow. It’s up to us.
Many Blessings of Peace and Love!
