Easy Ways to Get Rid of Ghosts
Do You Have a Ghost?
You hear it at night. That familiar yet strange sound of footsteps. Perhaps you have even seen a white mist or silhouette of an otherworldly person out of the corner of your eye. Now you believe you have a ghost in your house. It is quite possible that you are right. The evidence doesn't have to be astounding. If you believe there's a ghost or negative spirit, there just might be. Old houses and new houses alike are susceptible to drawing in ghosts and spirits, depending on the energy inside.
Don't feel like you are alone. There are hundreds, if not thousands or even millions, of people in the United States and all around the world who believe they are living in a haunted house at this very moment in time. On any given month, hundreds of thousands of people search for a way to get rid of ghosts. I have had my experiences with ghosts and spirits and I know how to get rid of them quite easily and successfully. Here are my tips.
Smudging and Cleansing a Home
Probably one of the most effective and quick methods of ridding your home of ghosts is do a smudging. Smudging is a practice used by Native Americans and other cultures to cleanse an area or a person of negative energies. It is pretty simple, too.
All you'll need is a bundle of white sage, matches or a lighter, an abalone shell (optional), and you. You can find white sage online and in metaphysical stores and it is fairly cheap.
When you go to do your smudging, light the end of the white sage bundle carefully so that the sage is smoking gently. The abalone shell is used to catch any ashes that might fall from the sage bundle. With the sage smoking, go from room to room in your home and fill each room lightly with smoke. You can take the sage and move it in a circle (clockwise) and say something like, "I cleanse my home and myself today, no negative energies can stay." Of course you can make the statement more elaborate if you feel drawn to do so. You can also include your religious beliefs, if you'd like. But the simple statement above works just as well.
The smoke of the sage is thought to drive negative energies and forces away, energetically cleansing the area in which you live. There are other ways to cleanse your home, if you don't like sage smudging.
You can use holy water from your church, after attaining permission of course. You can also make your own holy water (look up recipes online). Sprinkle a bit in each room while saying a similar statement. Both of these methods should get rid of ghosts in your home.
Shielding by Visualization
In addition or in substitution to smudging or cleansing your home, you can also use visualization techniques to get rid of ghosts easily. This is a technique that can be used to shield yourself from negative energy and harm, in general...and it is very powerful for dispelling darker spirits, as well. This is a method that many people call "shielding". Essentially you will be visualizing a shield around your home and yourself.
Here's how to do it:
At night before going to bed, close your eyes and imagine a bubble or sphere of white light surrounding your home. Try your best to visualize all of the aspects or your home's exterior. Once you've held this image in your mind for at least 30 seconds, visualize that white light emanating throughout every room in your house...expelling any negative energies or entities that might be hiding within. Once you've held this image in your mind for another 30 seconds, visualize again the white bubble or sphere around your house and know that nothing negative or dark can penetrate it. It is impenetrable.
You can use this visualization technique to shield yourself throughout the day, almost anywhere you go...and you can repeat it every night to protect your home and yourself.
I use shielding whenever I go into a public place where I know I'll be coming in contact with many different energies, and I also use this technique at night to shield myself from nightmares and negative spirits that might try to enter my dream-time. But it works extremely well to rid your house of ghosts, too!

A Circle of Salt
Salt is used as a purifier, a cleanser, and also as a protector. You can use it to get rid of ghosts easily. Sea salt is the best and can be purchased at any grocery store in your area. While it is true that witches use it to cast circles for spell-work, you do not have to be a witch to use salt as a protector of your home. In fact, it doesn't make you a witch if indeed you do use it.
Once you have your container of sea salt, go outside of your home and start in the far left corner. Open the container and begin to pour the sea salt onto the ground and walk in a circle (or square) clockwise around your home and property outlining the perimeter with the sea salt. While you are doing this, you can say something like the following:
"I protect my home with this sea salt, all negative energy entering this home must stop."
Continue to say this statement until you have outlined your entire property with the sea salt. This technique works to keep out spirits and negative energy for months. If you want to make it especially powerful, do this protective technique on a Full Moon. You can refresh the sea salt once every couple of months, if you feel the need to do so.
Stop Thinking About It
A word to the wise—you MUST stop thinking about the haunting. What happens when we think about these negative energies and spirits is that your thoughts are creating energy that in turn fuels the negative energy residing within your home's walls. Essentially you are feeding the spirit/entity with fuel just by constantly thinking about it or dwelling on it! I know because I've done it.
So whichever method you use to rid your home of ghosts, you must believe that it will work. Know in your heart that you are powerful and more powerful than these negative energies, and that when you say they need to leave they will indeed leave. Nothing and no one has any power over you and your environment except you.

Knives won't do anything against a spirit, only a physical being.
