Getting rid of ghosts

VASTHU SASTRA
BY T. SELVA
DO you feel the presence of someone or hear “sounds” in your house? Are your children
falling sick too often?
Unexplainable occurrences – doors opening and closing and lights flickering – could be
caused by an unholy spirit in the house or a haunted property.
So how does one deal with such paranormal situations? Worried dwellers usually end up
selling the house instead of resolving the issue.
I have received email from readers asking about mysterious happenings in their houses
and wanting to know what a ghost is and what it looks like.
“Ghost” is a common term for the spirit of a human being who has left his or her physical
body. From the scientific perspective, a ghost is a body of intelligence or consciousness
with a frequency between pure energy and matter. It can appear in a transparent white
form, a shadow in the dark or a dark form and could also appear as a light or mist.
How a ghost appears depends on the sensitivity of an individual. It also depends on the
ghost and how it wants to appear to humans – the mischievous ones would want to scare
while the considerate ones want to just blend in.
Normally the ghost of a person who has just died would appear in a physical form and
usually looks just as the person did before death. I had several experiences when I did my
research and study on ghost busting under my Vasthu master, Yuvaraj Sowma, in
Chennai, and psychic investigator, Josef Frank B Regis, in Manila in 2002. The latter is
the author of the book titled The Ghost Manual.
The most frequently asked question is – why do ghosts exist?
When a person dies, only his or her body disintegrates. There are other parts that do not
“die”, and these include emotions, feelings and spirit. These are referred to as the “soul”.
When the soul continues to circulate in the material world after death, they are termed as
ghosts.
Ghosts are earth-bound souls because they are unliberated spirits. They die suddenly
before their time and have not fulfilled their desires and duties. Spirits roam day and
night (defying common belief that ghosts only appear at night) and they are everywhere,
especially in places like hospitals.

Prayer is one of the most powerful energy fields to invoke in the presence of a ghost. It is incorrect to brand all ghosts as bad. Owing to sudden and tragic death. the powerful fragrance of jasmine has been known to ward off negative energy. Then they move on to a higher level.

This is why Vasthu stresses that all dwellers should clean the house before moving in and also perform prayers in their respective faith to remove these unseen entities. they are trapped and these souls seek help to be set free. sometimes for a few years. Houses that have had a history of tragic and unnatural deaths are prone to unexplainable happenings. abandoned and empty rooms invite invisible spirits. a Vasthu expert must be called in to clear the spirit.
