By Wanda Pratnicka, Ph.D. –
Most people never get to answer this question until they’re on the other side. Psychologist and parapsychologist Wanda Pratnicka, Ph.D., author of the bestselling (in Poland) book Possessed by Ghosts: Exorcisms in the 21st Century, shares with us her findings based on 45 years of research.
Not everybody realizes they have died. As in the movie The Sixth Sense where Bruce Willis’ character missed his own death, there are many souls who think they’re still alive. These people can be friends or relatives who have passed away. Many of these souls either don’t know they’re dead, or don’t believe they have died. It’s as if they’re living in a dream-like state.
At the moment of death, we have the choice to pass on over to the Light, although many people choose not to do so. They may be afraid of punishment for what they did during their lifetime, they may not believe in God, or they may be concerned for the wellbeing of living relatives so they don’t want to let go.
The moment of death might be compared to a train station. Anyone who thinks that they’re worthy of entering heaven gets a free ticket. Everyone else stays behind in the station concourse. The train departs, leaving a crowd of ghosts in the concourse who simply don’t know what to do with themselves. This is where the problems can begin. Quite often these people did not catch “the train” because of things they were regretful for, feeling guilty about, or fearing punishment of some kind. Many of these souls were also very attached to earthly matters so they didn’t want to leave their home, their business, or material possessions.
The soul may return to its home, its workplace, its cemetery, or to leisure activities it frequented; if it was an alcoholic then it may return to a bar where it can “drink.”
Such a soul can also attach itself to a living person. If one has a spirit attached, he/she can be suffering from anxiety, depression, deep emotional pain, low energy levels, a long-term physical symptom, a major illness, or psychological disorders. Spirits can be the cause of lack of harmony at home, problems in relationships, and unexplainable medical disorders that the doctors cannot diagnose with scientific tools. Spirit attachment is one of the most unknown, controversial, misunderstood, and disregarded form of energetic and spiritual illnesses. Most people who suffer due to spirit attachment believe that the things that have happened to them are unique, and resist talking about it, fearing they may be perceived as mentally ill.
It is possible that aggressive behavior is really the behavior of a spirit which is attached, whether it is an abusive spouse, mood swings, or alcohol-fueled rages. There are stories of people who have no desire to act disrespectfully towards their family, let alone become abusive, and it is the spirit which is driving them to act that way. Most people don’t know that they have something (or someone) attached to them. Therefore, it is always worth it to check whether negative symptoms are caused by the presence of spirits. If there is a spirit problem, neither therapies nor drugs will be effective to treat what we are struggling with.
