My niece is being tormented by spiritual beings. It started out innocently. My sister bought the house in the early 1980s. They have always had spirits in the house, and my sister and I have always had spirits with us. Shortly after my nephew died, however, my two nieces used a Ouija board to try to connect with him. It seems that since that time, there have been more frequent visitors. A week ago my niece had just gone to bed when a small group of spirits invaded her room. She said they had sort of an evil or sinister look to them, and she told them that she didn’t care what they did to her if they’d just leave her bird alone. They then circled the bird and started to poke at it. They also tried to pull her from the bed and almost succeeded. I know my niece would never make up such a story. She is 17 years old but very mature for her age and very trustworthy. Is there anything you can tell me that would help in a case such as this? What would you do in this situation? Thank you for your time and patience.



Hayley, I am so glad that you asked this question in this public forum, for this is an important situation. I cannot stress enough to NOT play with Ouija Boards, have seances, try to conjure up Satan, or engage in any other similar “games.” These things are REALLY dangerous if explored by inexperienced people. I have NO doubt that a Ouija Board is a portal other beings can use to enter this world.

This house needs a good-old fashioned cleansing. Your family can do it pretty easily. Here is the shopping list: a few containers of regular salt, a white candle and a bundle of sage (you can find this at any New Age store). I want everyone involved in this house clearing to start in a central room such as the living room or kitchen. Someone should light the white candle and pray for protection for all involved. Before you start and when you finish, say out loud something like, “If you are not from Love and Light, you are not allowed in this space.” Then either you or another family member needs to move to the outside of the house and pour the salt around the foundation. Pour it around the entire building. (The old ways say that salt around the outside walls will protect the inside from evil).

Then move back inside the house and light the sage bundle. The whole clan should then move as a group from room to room with this sage bundle. In each room, move the sage all around the walls and corners of the room. Let the smoke really move up the walls. As you sage each room, again say out loud, “If you are not here in Love and Light, I command you in the name of the One God to leave this place immediately. This place is now protected by the power of the One God.” When you are finished with each room, put the sage out in a bowl of sand or dirt so you do not start a fire. Everyone needs to wash their hands and wrists. If anyone feels particularly “heavy,” have that person shower.

Your house will be clean of all dark spirits at that point. You need to tell your family that if they are invited, they will come back again. Burn the Ouija Board or at least break it in pieces and throw it out.

Some spirits are just menacing to begin with. Not all good spirits are pretty. I have one guide in particular who is quite hideous to look at, but he is FULL of wisdom. So be sure to remind your niece that if ugly beings come around, they are not always from the Dark Side. She can always clear a place out by saying, “If you are not here in Love and Light, you must leave NOW.” It works like a charm.

I wish you and your family peace and quiet!



Ouija Boards and teenage girls go together like flowers and the month of May. Kids and grownups alike are ever scaring themselves with stupid and dangerous things. People don’t seem to understand that Spirits crave REST and don’t like being stirred up by strangers. It sounds like your niece let in a bunch of gremlin types. The person she was trying to reach was “still on the beach” for at LEAST a year after his death, and not ready to speak with any of us from Beyond the Veil.

It would be best for her to leave all that alone for a while. When your nephew is READY to come talk to her, he’ll make himself known in an unmistakable way. Unless mediumship runs in your family and they have a long history of dealing with this ability, it’s better if she waits for adolescence to end before taking spirit communication up on any regular basis.

Since you say that there have always been Restless Spirits in the house, I advise you do a full house CLEARING so that the Spirits you want can come back into the house, and you can eliminate that troubling activity. Even if your sister cleared the house when she first moved in, OTHERS have come to join the energies that were there. While whatever is in that house may be frightening, it’s not going to physically harm any person or any pet. Still, it’s always better to be safe than sorry.

On the first nice spring day, open every possible door and window to the house. Pull open all the drawers and all the cabinets – get everything OPEN! Go from room to room, burning incense (sage or frankincense) and making LOTS OF NOISE! In each room, recite the Prayer to St. Michael (pardon the punctuation and capitalization here. It is written the way I have it printed on the card I carry with me AT ALL TIMES!):

St. Michael the Archangel, defend us into battle, be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray; and do thou, O Prince of the heavenly host, by the power of God, cast into hell Satan and all the other evil spirits who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.

After you have gone room to room, closet to closet, basement to attic, repeating this and banging on drums, pots and pans, and whatever else you have to make a HUGE AND JOYFUL NOISE, come back to what you feel is the CENTRAL POINT of the house and say:

“Go ye now all those of you who are without rest into the Light of Lights and become ONE with the Caretaker of All Souls. Be gone and be at Peace.” You’ll feel a change in the atmosphere of that house immediately.


Many times in life we hear, “You will always have what you NEED, but not necessarily what you WANT.” Your spirit must have needed to experience the feeling of leaving your human body, and the suggestion in the next chapter of Sylvia Brown’s book was all it took to get you there.

Even though you hadn’t read it yet, your SOUL recognized the title of that chapter as something it had been seeking, and your soul, knowing that you had that reference to read after your experience, got with it and out you went!

While I don’t usually recommend her books, Sylvia Brown has a wide reaching and powerful effect on lots of people. A Gemini like you would be able to relate easily to her writing and put it to good use. Synchronicity – you gotta love it!

I like your description of “getting caught.” That’s exactly what it feels like, isn’t it? One minute you’re free and hovering above the room, and the next minute, ZAP! back down into your corporeal form you go!

As a little kid, I loved that “feeling of return.” With practice, most of the time we can control that event, but sometimes, when our physical ears hear a distracting noise or something else occurs to knock us back into reality, back we go. With practice you will be able to control your return better.

I find it interesting that you were visiting your mother-in-law and not someone in your own genetic family. Evidently, you and your husband got married for reasons that are even deeper than love. His family’s interest in “psychic stuff” will nurture your children in such matters and help them to grow into their own abilities.

You’ll never have to be concerned that when your daughter visits them, she’ll be discouraged from exploring her own psychic life and power. My parents encouraged me to develop my psychic senses in a time when it wasn’t nice to even discuss such things in public. Heck, it’s STILL not considered a great topic at the dinner table in some families!

Your kids will get to talk about it ALL and ask questions and read and study. This is going to give them such an edge in life! Talk with your husband about how you want to present this to your kiddos, so that you are united in your approach and ready to tell them their experiences are all natural and okay.

A word or two of warning: Geminis often have difficulty staying grounded in REAL LIFE. Don’t get so strung out on your ASTRAL life that you neglect what you’re doing here on Earth.

You are at the beginning of a long journey to learn where your power really lies. Try to be patient with this process and take your time.
