Through past traumatic occurrences both to dwellings and land we can find ourselves in the midst of a haunting of some kind. It is always important to define and identify what type of haunting you are dealing with. Is it with the person themselves, the land or the building where the haunting is attached. Once identified then the possible cause and cure.
Sometimes again through trauma a spirit chooses not to enter fully into the light thus holding itself close to the earth. Possibly there is unfinished business or he/she is attached too much to a loved one and doesnt want to let go. This is unhealthy for those who have past as well as those who remain. Often known as spirit attachment. By closely working with those in the physical as well as those who may have lost their way or are holding on it is possible to bring about emotional healing encouraging those still here to move forward on their journey into the spirit realms.
Mostly we are unaffected by residual energy, which is made up of past memories of time, past events which occurred within that property. There are times when the energy of a home or workplace can affect our own well being such as a build up of negative residual energy caused by trauma relating to previous occupants in some ways of which is now impacting on the present moment possibly producing paranormal activity or general unrest or unwellness within the current occupants due to negative emotional memories.
