How can I tell if there is a spirit attached to me?

What do you mean by "attached"?

a spirit that is drawn to you and can follow you around from place to place if it wishes
i've heard about people being able to "pick up" spirits from places like cemetaries

I don't believe in being able to "pick up" spirits, especially from cemeteries. Doesn't make a lot of sense, imo. (A little off topic but: Why would a cemetery be haunted in the first place? If it's because a spirit is attached to their body, why would they then follow someone else, if the only reason their spirit remains is because it has a physical attachment to its own body? Food for thought, I guess.)

What's making you think you have a spirit that follows you?

yeah it's hard to prove something like that
the only explanation I can think of is maybe someone is sensitive to paranormal activity or they remind the spirit of someone they used to care for
the place where I heard about this was a girl talking about a boatload of ouija experiences where some of the ghosts she talked to told her where she picked them up from..it seemed valid since the whole conversation was recorded but it's the internet so you never know
that's a good point though about the spirit being attached to their own body..I haven't really thought about cemetaries very much..though I've wondered if dark spirits are drawn to cemetaries simply because of how many human spirits there could be in such a small area

I've just been having strange experiences in the few places that I am normally..such as seeing shadows, unexplained noises (not so much things like knocking but more so thinking I hear people talking when noone's there..I never know what they say though), getting chills, feeling watched..having my eyes closed and I could swear someone came in the room and I felt like there was someone there only to open my eyes and realize I was alone...you know, the normal stuff. but I experience these same things not only at my house and the place I work, but also at my friends houses which I stay at quite often..It could be just me or it could be different spirits, who knows but I just wanted to know if there were any sure signs to verify this. I don't really get these experiences in public places..the most i'll see is a shadow somewhere and it's normally outside

Ebonykrow could be right. But, I have not been convinced a spirit is necessarily attached to it's body. In some cases, that has long since decomposed where an alleged haunting has taken place, or the body is not known to be there, it is just a location the person liked or disliked in life. ... or had no sure attachment to the place by dying there.

Many PIs have talked about working a case and then finding things going bump in the night at home, so that infers to me the possibility of attracting an entity, perhaps especially when doing remote sites. (do they get bored?).

A close friend has been emailing me about his place of work. It is a hotel and was hosting a group who came in for a family funeral. No problems until they returned the day of the burial, which was raining and they tracked in a good bit of the dirt from the cemetary. Almost right away the feeling of the hotel has shifted and wierd things are happening. Most of the employees have noticed it and are bothered now when at the hotel.

Mental? Superstition? Did something come back with them? I dunno and cannot go there to check it myself to settle my own unknowing about it, but he isn't much of a suggestive sort. In the years I have known him, he has never complained of something like this before, and is fairly sensitive.

Back when I was in Vodou, this was a very common thing to do, even routine. It was an accepted fact. In some cases it was attempted willfully. It is only in the Western mindset where it tends to get denied or not considered much.

If true, and if you have ruled out possible mental illness or medication conflicts, or natural explanations for the things you witness, your symptoms suggest you may have attracted the attention of something. It does not stay in a place, but moves with you, which is why I say so. Resort to your form of faith, and try answers from that is my suggestion. If they do not work permanently then keep trying until you learn what does work. Some people think it is cool and solicit more of this sort of phenomenon, but this isn't really a smart thing to do IMO. They only see it outwardly, and do not perceive how they can change due to the influence, or obsession if you think of it that way, and that is a sticky and confusing endrun to try to get yourself out of and back on ground you feel more sure of.  Especially alone.  If you did not start out with issues of depression or despair, you can end up with them along the way.

So, do keep your eyes open and take it seriously until you are satisfied you know why this is going on and have gotten a true end to it if you are certain it cannot be your imagination.

Cuban folklore has a lot of stories like these in which a spirit that has not moved on, attaches themselves to someone that reminds them of a loved one in life, or someone that just happens to be more "sensitive" and can acknowledge their presence. The reasons for it are numerous. Cubans also have a type of Voudou called Santeria, where spirits are called upon in ceremonies, but can also be banished if they decide they want to stick around. I am not a practitioner of Santeria or any religion for that matter, but for us, Santeria spills over into our very culture and way of thinking, which is why your post got my attention.

I don't know if this is what has happened to you. I'm not going to sit here and say you are crazy or making things up, but the first order of business should be to make sure that as Nile_Shaman suggested, this isn't something brought on by you. Whether it is mental illness, medication, or stress of some sort getting to you, you must first rule out anything of this nature. You never want to blame the paranormal for something until there is no other explanation, and you need to search for the rational before you worry yourself with the extraordinary.

If you conclude that you do in fact, have an attached soul following you around, it can be as simple as telling it to go away (mean it). I am not a big believer in religious ceremony, but some people are, and if you are one of those people, it might help to find a solution within that context. It may or may not banish the spirit, but it will put you at ease, which is just as important. Don't interact with it or acknowledge it other than to tell it to leave you alone.

Either way, I hope things work out for you.

Past Life Regressions & Channeling
A former practitioner of conventional medicine, Dr. Charles Tramont discussed how he now treats people with hypnotherapy, conducting past-life regressions. Through his hypnotized clients, he also works with spirit guides and releases attached entities. Past lives are imprinted in our cellular memory, and negative emotional incidents from those lives can impinge on a person's current well being, he explained. Many times after someone recalls a particular past life, their physical or psychological problem dissipates.

Now that link is definitely something to think about..I knew people could regress with hypnotherapy but to go to future lives..Now I would like to experience that! wub.gif

the way it was presented on the show was consistent with the ideology that trans dimensional times lines don't necessary conform to the ebb and flow of the time/space continuum as we understand it, the other part that I found fascinating was the the concept of soul recognition.

Utilizing spirit guides to vanquish a parasitic attachment(s) was the methodology employed in the case of Rosemary Campbell if my memory serves me.

I do to, Soul recognition, I do believe this, souls that have known each other in the past will always recognize each other when there paths are crossed, or at least one will recognize the other. yes.gif

I do not subscribe to the ideology of inter dimensional beings (The Shadow People) I really feel they are something else, but that theory is as good as any, I cant back up what I believe, JMO.

I believe this thread is the one your referring to Mr. Spider.... innocent.gif

It started before I went on medication..my first couple sightings of a shadow person was at work a month or more before I went on anxiety medication..the thing is that even when i was on my medication at work my coworkers who weren't on medication saw it too. I don't know if it's just a side effect but when I see a shadow it's not near something that's dark that my eyes could've blurred that..it could just be my medication's effect but it's strange when other people notice similar things in a certain area..and I don't know how to explain clearly thinking that someone had walked in the room and felt like someone was there but there was no one
would medication cause all these to seem to happen?

This is really debateable, for me, Light, coz the times I have done things to allegedly bring a past life to light, the tales told have never been one of the lives I already do recall.

Plus, the whole past life issue is problematic for me. I am not certain it could not be some form of racial memory or even ancestral. I don't let myself bog down into thinking it is one sure thing as yet, until I can know. I mean, they might even be projected memories from spirits trying to tell their tale or get something of themselves across to us. (LOL, that would account for so many Cleopatra's).

Meanwhile, I figure reincarnation or not, true or not, surely focussing on doing the best muddle I can in this life is the point and win-win LOL.

But, the memories are pretty... they feel like your own, and that rather nags and makes ya wonder, especially when recalled events do really seem to be themes and in some cases still players now in one's life.

Just dunno sad.gif, but I think we're getting off topic.

Check with your pharmacist or research it online. Type in like name of the med adverse reactions to google and see what comes up. You can ask your pharmacist without coming off wierd. Just ask him/her if they can cause wierd dreams or alter your perceptions any at all. Make sure they know what all you are on so they could suggest a way to find out. Also, realise that stress if bad enough can drive you wierd for a bit, too.

I do not mean to say you don't have a paranormal issue, or that some of it might be. I know, honestly, that what you can describe is not rare at all. HOWEVER, you must begin by ruling out all the more possible and close in issues first. To do anything else is naive, to be kind. However, to run all you down and believe without thought that it cannot be anything but something mundane is not any smarter, IMO. Just, one before the other. Mundane first.

I apologize for getting offtopic on your thread about the reincarnation stuff.
