Crowded Apartment


I am 24, since I was young I have been able to sense energies around me, particularly negative ones. Growing up I spent more time sleeping in my parents bed than the average child due to overwhelming feelings of a negative presence watching me or being in my room. I always needed a night light, door open, parents door across the hall open, and closet doors closed. I have also always had roommates for this reason. I am also able to lucid dream, which happens on its own and I control what I say/do but not the setting or who/what is there. The clearest image of a spirit I have ever experienced was a few summers ago I was out with my sister downtown and in the crowd I saw my aunt, clear as day walking with all of the people. My aunt had passed away from breast cancer 8 years prior to this. By the time I had turned to my sister to tell her to look and wrapped my head around what I thought I had seen, she was gone. I convinced myself it was all in my head or maybe it was just someone who looked like her.

My fiancé and I live in a very old apartment building in downtown Victoria BC, one of the most "haunted" cities in Canada. We just so happen to live right in the thick of the historical area, 100+ year old Victorian homes, and just down the street is Ross Bay Cemetery, opened in 1873, Many famous Canadians and Americans are buried there, including Sir James Douglas (BC's first governor), many subsequent premiers, coal baron Robert Dunsmuir (who built Craigdarroch Castle), Sir Matthew Baillie Begbie (the judge responsible for hanging many people here), Emily Carr (world-famous artist), Billy Barker (discoverer of gold at Barkerville) and Nellie Chapman (the "Miners' Angel" who was featured on a US postage stamp). It is considered one of the most haunted places in the city and I won't even drive past it. The whole area is used in several "ghost tours" by our huge tourist industry. So needless to say there is a lot of activity around here and as soon as I walk into my apartment- even if my fiancé is not home- I am never alone. I have been told by other gifted individuals that I am an open vessel to spirits and right now it feels like they are all moving in.

We moved into this apartment in January of this year and right from the beginning I have sensed a negative energy constantly watching me in my home. The bathroom and hallway seems to retain the most energy and I can't even take a shower in peace. This has made me quite afraid to be here alone, particularly at night time. I have to avoid windows and mirrors like the plague and have a hard time going from room to room without fear. My friend who is a gifted Clairvoyant and who practices hoodoo, (she comes from a long line of priestesses in Louisiana) has given me some methods to try and protect myself from this energy. I am constantly burning at least 3 white candles in each room, I also smudge, burn incense, and wear crystals. Lately I have been practicing deep meditation and spreading a protective light over myself especially when I am in the bathroom.

Yesterday I meditated and focused on my light before showering, and as soon as I got in the bathroom I had this feeling of safety. In my mind I got a clear image of an old woman who stood in the bathroom right in front of the negative spirit like a protective wall. I can't believe how clearly I could see her in my mind, an image just popped up and I knew it was her. She had a very strong and kind presence and right away I made it known to her that she is welcome and I thanked her for protecting me.

I have a few questions for anyone who can give me answers:

1. How can I welcome the positive spirits and block out the negative? I do not want to necessarily rid my apartment of all activity, especially the good. And honestly there is so much activity around this area that I feel like getting rid of one will just make room for another.

2.Would partaking in a past-life regression be a dangerous idea for me because I am so open to spiritual activity? My clairvoyant friend has told me that she worries I may bring something unsavoury back with me if it is out there but that she would do one for me if I wished.

3. -This probably comes up often- Am I just loosing my mind? Hah.

Thank you for reading my story!

Hi Meganvee!
I have found that different authors have different ideas about Spirituality in general, and that the best way to advance is to get experience. That is to DO it. I would suggest that you join a Spiritualist Church and speak to the senior members about your aspirations. They will point you in the right direction. Visit the various churches in your area and join the one that appeals to you most. Start with: Open Door Spiritualist Sanctuary,
1600, Cook Street, Victoria.
Tel. (250) 3832293.
Please keep me informed of your progress.

Thank you so much for the resources.
I feel very compelled to help desperate souls, I feel like its what I am meant to do and I want to learn as much as I can in order to do this. I have ordered a book on strengthening my clairvoyance/ clairsentience. I am trying to find as many books as possible so any suggestions are warmly welcomed!

Hi Meganvee, During the 1960s I were a member of a Circle (Seance) who did Rescue work in South Africa. We went to haunted places to "Rescue" earthbound spirits ie to make them realise they have passed over, are in Spirit life. I invite you to read my profile but specifically "Inauguration of a Rescue circle".This will give you all the info regarding earthbound spirits. (Ghosts)
My opinion is that the "evil" spirit in your apartment is not so much evil as upset. Make enquiries and I think you will find that this person lived in your apartment previously. He/she passed over into spirit life without realising it and is still "living" there and is most upset with your intrusion.
It sounds as though you have things under control with your meditation and protective light. The old woman who is protecting you is most probably a relative. Maybe your grand mother.
However, should this get out of control contact a local Spiritualist Church (you will find them on the web) and they may have a rescue group who will remove the entity from your home.
Remember that a spirit is just another human being
Without a body, and they can not harm you unless you want them to by believing that they can.
God bless.

(This is just by the way: our daughter and her husband emigrated to Canada in 2005 and lives in Edmonton Alberta. Not too far from you. We hope to visit them again next spring-also Vancouver!)

You have a Totem-which is a wolf, a guide named George
And a few others.
I am under the impression when you are ready and obtain answers you will move into helping disparate souls.

If you Google:Oracle101 she has info re Guides and co rafting them. Ted Andrews has a few books.
But a simple one is a visual meditation asking to meet your guide.

Grounding and protection see what is available.
If you resonate with part of the information use it.

There is a starter book:
Healing Sick houses dowsing for Healthy homes.
By Roy & Ann Proctor.

There are other things to look for.
If you click on my User name re Working with Discarnate souls on the earth plane. Look up AnnV article on Shadow people.

Re your Mum seizures.
Too much energy is like a jolt to the Brain which is over stimulated by along the Nervous system. I have seen a few people shaking uncontrollably and cry.

If you want some feed back just post under working with disparate souls. List the query. If I can help I will.

I don't actually know much about guides so I can't say what is guiding me. I meditate daily usually before bed or a shower... I focus on my "light beam" to protect me right before a shower as this is when I have some of the strongest activity and it has proven to help. As far as I know I believe the only other person in my family who may have some gifts is my mom. Though she does not accept this there are many clues. My mother was a child and part of the Catholic Church a priest touched her head while reading some kind of a blessing or sermon, and she instantly began to seize. My mother had never and had never had a seizure besides this one time. She also recalls that she was mumbling not in English. She never went back to the church again after that and me and my sister never went either. My mom Is very easily effected by other people's moods and will become quite agitated herself to the point where you just want to tell her to relax! She believes but doesn't believe. She would never allow a ouija board in her house (same as me) and she is a very jumpy person.
Other than my mother there doesn't appear to be any other family members who are affected.
As a child I had an "invisible friend" whom I would talk to and play my imaginary games with. As a child I was never really in to toys, I always wanted to crawl around on the floor and pretend to be an animal or a mermaid - or anything really. I had a young boy that I would pretend was real and he would play with me.
I recently bought a Turkish evil eye at the recommendation of a woman who owns a really great metaphysical store. She also sold me dragons blood and thought me a blessing to seal off my windows and mirrors and I got some smudging supplies.
I would like to know more about guides, I have heard a lot about them but I don't actually know much.

6 years ago (2015-06-13) speak of a few different things:
A gate Keeper who is there to help you. Dealing with energy you are reading regarding children. Ghosts and Portals which sounds like you may be in the Triangle.

So Yes you are wise to ask and think by stepping back.

Re your foundation
Do you meditate daily? Do you know what guides you work with? What type of protection do you use?
Who else in the family is a Sensative? Please list male/female relative.
As a kid did you have an unseen friend? I know strange strange query.

Yes I get physical symptoms, chills, nausea, strong anxiety when I feel a presence. I have been meditating daily and focusing on my third eye so I can hopefully get a better perspective and possibly be helpful to these spirits. Since I started meditating daily, my lucid dreams have been much more active and have been full of spirits. Usually during these dreams there is just something random going on and I control my choices and am aware that I am dreaming. Twice now I have had lucid dreams involving entering a home that I do not recognize, a man who I also do not know opens the door and welcomes me in, when I come through the door I look to the left and there is a group of five children standing together looking at me. I am not emotionally ready to deal with child-souls, especially not five of them! So when I get to that place I just tell myself "No, I cannot deal with the kids right now" and I have to leave the house and wake myself up. (Too many scary movies involving children I guess haha) Though I feel like this is not going to go away so easily as both times the dream was exactly the same and was very vivid. I also want to be able to hear their story and know what is going on and possibly help, I have just found the prospect of children a bit much for me right now.

Today I got some cleansing and smudging supplies from a wonderful shop we have here in town that is run by a very educational and spiritually talented couple. The woman also suggested I get something to seal my mirrors and how to go through that process so I will be doing that too I think.
It seems like when I am at my apartment I can physically sense and 'see' the spirits, but when spend the night elsewhere (sometimes my job requires this as I work in group homes with youth who have mental illness) they come to me in dreams. There are 8 different homes with the company I work for and only one of them has a strong spiritual presence, I have found out recently that the property is on an old first nations burial ground so that is probably why I get strong visions of certain people and a heavy presence there too particularly on the one side of the property.
I am kind of at a strange stand point, a large part of me wants to completely open up and try to understand all of this and help as much as I can but the other part of me is afraid because of all the negativity I have felt in certain places and the emotional and physical effect it has on me.

Has anyone else dealt with this? And if so, how?

Again, thank you for all your help!

Some individuals are just magnets to spirits.

Clearing an area by smudging with sage and prayer are helpful using counter clockwise movements with windows open. But it sounds as if you need to learn about Spirit release. Each case is different. So if you are just starting out work with an experienced person.

AnneV has an article on Shadow people.
I have a story of Discarnate souls.

When working on clearing a home or area.
There are different things to look for.

So to start. Ask for protection from your guides.

When sleeping use Fresh sage periodically add a 2 juniper seed or thyme under the pillow case. Askfor understanding about any activity in your area. Take notes upon awakening.

Meditate daily.

The most haunted Castles in Scottland. After a 2nd night we were given an official tour which informed the house had suffered a fire and the floor suffered damage. I could sense and see this in mummies eye. They had souls walking down the hall that would walk right through you. A small mirror a couple use for magic I had to seal as well as that served as a portal. Really strange.

We can only help disadvantage souls cross over by knowing the situation and asking for help.
Sometimes this will take assistance from St Michael and Raphael. I have a friend who works quite differently as they escort them to the light. Some of these individual souls were not nice in life and are the same as dead people.

If you get pain in your stomach. Chills or hot Can you indicate if you get any symptoms? As many people get other symptoms.

Thank you so much! I will look in to trying these techniques for sure. And yes I agree a past life regression is probably not a good idea seeing as how several people have advised me against it now.
I appreciate the help!

You have clairsentience, your lucid dreams could be precognitive or premonitions, clairvoyance, also don't ever go into your past, especially having two of the clairs. As for how to keep good and banish evil, research herbal protection, it is very effective and cheap.

That is a tough environment to live in. I am glad to help out a bit, but the technique I use might not work for you as no one is the same, but I sure hope it does.

1. I found a very simple technique or two to welcome positive spirits. Guides and Angels and Archangels are the best to welcome as they hold love, are in the highest dimensions, and are light. First, write or list who you want to welcome. It could be your guide as well as another's, Angels, or certain Archangels. Second, ask them to come. You are pretty much creating an invitation for them to come. Don't doubt, they will come and listen to your calls. After all, they are here to help. Third, offer them something. I use a crystal (selenite, celestite, and angelite work best) on the windowsill of my bedroom window. Another method is to create a welcome mat. Use a symbolic object and state what it is (a welcome mat) and to who or what it is for (any positive being you wish to welcome).

2. I have frequently read about spirits coming to people who have done a past life regression. There can be old spirit attatchments which could hold negative energies. I think it would be best to let someone who knows how to do a past life regression very well. But this is just what I think.

3. I know this question very well. I really think you are fine, because if I have been through something similar, as well as many others, then of course you are not someone going insane.

I hope this helps. Being around large amounts of negative energy really does something to your health and wellbeing. Through my own experiences, I have never been so expressive compared to before I did the technique and developing my abilities. Think positive and have a good day!
