Doreen Virtue on earthbound spirits


Doreen Virtue


Ray: Are there negative beings that correlate to angels? Do they exist?

Doreen: Certain spirits can cause havoc in people — definitely yes. The main category is called earthbound spirits.

These are people who have passed on while in the full throngs of active addiction. The addictions could be to substances, behaviors, or things.

These spirits don’t want to go to the light. They want to stay on Earth and continue to try and get the same body thrills they got while they were living.

Earthbound spirits include certain people who were abusive when they were living. When they die, they say, “I’m going to make it up to the person I abused,” but they try to do so without going through the formal training a spirit guide goes through.

Earthbound spirits have what I call a “wet-blanket effect.” I’ve counseled a lot of people I would have called depressed when I was a practicing psychologist. I now often find that what they actually have is a spirit attachment.

People who have the following symptoms often have earthbound spirits: an inability to focus, including confusion and fuzzy thinking; being accident-prone all of a sudden; making stupid mistakes; and having sudden changes in tastes — in food or clothes, for example. Also, psychological issues that are not responding to treatment, including medical treatment, can mean an earthbound spirit is bringing negative energies in.

No one needs to be afraid of this. The antidote is to call on Archangel Michael. But the kick is the person truly has to be willing to let go of the earthbound spirit.

That’s hard for a lot of people, believe it or not, because the earthbound spirits are providing company for them. A lot of lonely people have earthbound spirits, and unconsciously they agree to it.

There is no such thing as spirit possession. It’s all by unconscious agreement.

Ray: You would ask Archangel Michael —

Doreen: — to come and escort away this earthbound spirit to the light, for that spirit’s own spiritual growth.

When we call on Archangel Michael, he will take the energy away, and the living person’s problems are relieved instantly. It’s miraculous.
