I'm Back... Steven The Ghost

 

It's bad enough I've had trouble with my TV changing channels without me touching the remote, previous visits from a really scary hag pulling my quilt from the end of my bed, and from Steven the spirit who kept jumping under my sheets.

It was Monday night 8th October, and there was nothing on TV so I decided to read some comments on YGS followed by watching some wild life documentary's on my tablet.

I watched quite a few until finally I got tired enough to sleep. I switched my tablet off and put it on the window ledge.

I covered up under my cozy soft quilt and sighed feeling totally relaxed. Suddenly in the corner of my eye I saw Steven the ghost. I quickly squinted and half closed my eyes because I was really scared. In blurred vision I saw him grabbing my quilt. I quickly pushed him off with my arms and repeatedly said, 'get lost' in my head over and over again. Finally he left. What was only a minute seemed like 10 minutes of stress.

I know I was awake and it couldn't have been sleep paralysis. It was Steven the spirit. I recognised him from previous encounters.

I have been doing Rookdygins cleansing and shielding rituals regularly. Mainly in my lounge room. I did it in my bedroom day before yesterday (13th October).

I've been looking for some cleansing crystals, however I can't find any. I leave sage on all my windows and have sprinkled salt at my doors, outside and in.

The scary hag hasn't come back thank goodness. I don't understand how Steven the ghost is getting through the cleansing shielding rituals. 😕

I really do hope he finds the light and moves on and leaves me alone.

Any advice?

Hello Dirt Creature,

I agree, he must be sinister... How do I get rid of him? He must be evil and has the power to get through Rooks cleansing rituals and jubeeles self cleansing.

I stayed facing the window and punched behind me almost twisting my arms. I didn't stop until he left.

Its the first time he's visited twice in one night. The fur baby/cat doesn't worry me so much.🐾

Something about Steven that baffles me. Why is he so persistent?

I still believe Steven isn't a regular ghost and just poses as such to gain trust. Something with this level of force and ability seems sinister. Good on you for ignoring him and letting him know he isn't welcome.

Hello Everyone,

I was pretty tired last night and found it hard to get to sleep.

I had teeth removed to make way for top dentures. Hmmm, that's a real sign of aging for me. Lol.

Anyway, I was laying awake looking out the window and I felt what felt like a fluffy cat pur past my back. I jumped out of my skin. I coughed out loud to try and scare it away. I don't have a cat. I never had a cat. I don't have any pets. I'd love one but I'm in a unit and I'm not permitted here.

Not long after the mystery ghost pur baby I felt my sheet being lifted at the back of me. Once again, I coughed out loud and turned around this time. Hmmmmm, nothing there.

I continued to look out the window trying hard to fall asleep and once againg my sheet was being lifted really slowly. I froze this time. I was scared. I knew it was Steven the ghost. I tried to punch him away. My arms seemed like they were moving but my mouth wasn't and I as hard as I tried to tell him to get lost, I couldn't.

Finally, he left.

I've been cleansing my unit/ flat every 2 weeks, and have done a self cleansing once as Jubeele advised.

I've got different herbs around the place that's supposed to keep spirits away. I don't know what else I can do.

Steven is definitely stubborn as Lady-Glow says.

The TV, Steven the ghost and all the other things that happen can't be a coincidence. I guess there's something about me that attracts spirits, but what?

Hello Jubeele,

Thank you for your advise. I did your self cleansing as mentioned in the comment below.

I live a hop, skip and jump away from the beach. I usually go to the beach a few times a week with my neighbour for a cappuccino. You're right it's very relaxing.

I haven't seen Steven the ghost since he was last here on the 8th October. The hag hasn't been back since 9th August.

The TV still changes channels and recently my sandals went walk-a-bouts. I submitted a post on that today.

Thanks for your link on soap making. I will give anything a try at this stage.

I asked a few questions this week about previous tenants who lived in the 3 blocks that I'm linked to. Apparently the first block 2 people died in their 80's. In my block the 2nd block, the nasty man died in my bathroom. In the 3rd block 2 people died. One of cancer in his 50's and the other died of a heart attack in her 60's.

This is probably why things are happening. These spirits are obviously not at rest and a couple weren't ready to leave.

All 3 blocks need cleansing in order to rid the spirits I think. 😨

Anyway, thanks for dropping by again,
Miandra
😘 ❤ 😘

Miandra, if the park's too public for you, try any garden setting that you can get access to. Or you can try the beach or somewhere near moving water. Water is also a purifying element. Rex-T and I regularly drive to the beach and let the sound of the surf soothe us. That seems to work for us.

I found some videos on how to make rosemary soap if you or anyone's interested:

Keeping my fingers crossed for you. 😊

Hello BeauInside,

Good to see you again.

You are very wise like the other members from YGS who have come to my rescue AGAIN!

I'm doing everything in my power to keep him away whether he is evil or not I don't care, I don't want him here. He only wants one thing, ME. As far as I'm concerned he isn't getting me. 😲

As the comments below say, I have done self cleansing and focusing my cleansing and shielding ritual on my bedroom. I do the the entire flat, but I do last part in my bedroom.

Only time will tell now.

Thank you for your support and advise. I appreciate it.

Best wishes,
Miandra

Hi Miandra,

I am sorry to hear that Steven the ghost came for a visit. I'd insist on the cleansing and shielding like other fellow members suggested.

Maybe the confidence in yourself is the key: besides the cleansing and shielding (which to me are very important) you have to believe and convince yourself that it is you house, your space, your body. He doesn't belong here and if you tell him so, like you did, and being so assertive of that will eventually make him go away for good.

He didn't visit you for a long time, right? He disappeared after you told him so? Trust yourself and your strength, be assertive if you see him, show no fear because you are in control and most likely his visits will become less and less regular until he's gone for good. After all, you came this far and it got better. It's normal he's still trying to come back, it'd be probably too easy if he disappeared at once. But now you know you gained control so it's probably just a matter of time. 😉

Take care. ❤

Hi RCRuskin,

I just got sick of the 'Sleeping with Steve' name. I should have thought a little longer before picking that one. Lol

Thanks for the compliment about my name. It's different, and yes it has a nice sound to it. Not when you're in trouble as a kid and your mother is screaming it out at the top of her voice. Lol 😆

Regards,
Miandra

Hello Red Wolf,

Thank you for replying.

I don't have an attic or a basement. I'm in a unit/flat on the first floor.

When I do the ritual, I do the unit/flat and the final bit I light a candle in the middle of my bedroom. I did do that in the lounge room. When Steven came back I changed it to my bedroom.

I've also done self cleansing as suggested by Twighlight, Curious Dee and followed Jubeeles method.

I did tell him to get lost the last time he was here and pushed him off with my arms. (It was like pushing air 😕)

All I can do now is hope for the best. I wear a gold cross around my neck that I dipped in holly water.

AugustaM suggested a couple of links. I've checked them out. They were interesting. One link listed herbs and vegetables that keep evil spirits away, like basil, garlic, onions, sage etc. All really easy to get.

Im fighting fit and all stocked up. If he comes back now, he is going to smell like a curry with all the herbs and vegetables I have. Lol.

Thank you so much for commenting and helping out. I really appreciate it.
😘 ❤ 😘

Miranda

When you do the cleansing/shielding you have to do the whole house not just a room or 2. This includes the basement and attic if you have them.

If you want to get rid of Steve tell him to leave, he is NOT welcome, and don't come back. A spirit can not stay where it is told to leave. If you have a Welcome mat turn it around so that you see the word Welcome as you leave or just buy a decorative mat with no words.

Red

Hello AugustaM,

Good to see you again,

Thank you for going to the trouble of finding me relevant links. I really appreciate it.

Maybe you're right, he's probably not evil after all.

I'm going to click on your links now and see what they are all about.

Thank you again for your help.

Just a thought, but -the way I understand it- only negative entities are effected by cleansings. Perhaps, he truly is a positive entity but isn't very good at expressing his meaning. In that way, he reminds me of a dear friend - he is a quite tall, strong, imposing fellow, looks like a real tough but is sweet as a kitten, a real gentleman and absolutely brilliant but he is hamstrung by certain social challenges that make it so he rather comes on like Frankenstein or Lurch and most women are, tragically, afraid of him.

Your situation reminds me of one I heard of on NPR - here is a link:Listen to: The Wraith - http://one.npr.org/i/636263837:636263839
Granted, this woman's experience is with a female entity and not sexual in any way but the overall nature of the attachment seems similar to me and the ultimate solution might give you some ideas.

And I am uncertain whether I have shared this with you but I once did a great deal if research on folk remedies for such things (museum work can be so very interesting) and though unable to lay hands on my notes at this time, here is a link to a website I stumbled across that features a decent smattering of some of the more well recognized remedies. Most involve simple household ingredients for warding off and protecting oneself and environs from nasties: https://www.ghostlyactivities.com/herbs-protect-evil-spirits/?amp

Good luck ❤

Hi Haven,

Your posts made me realise I'm not alone. It was hard trying to understand what was going on in my flat/unit until I started getting advice from members on YGS.

I've done the things that have been suggested and can only cross my fingers now. 😨

A couple of days ago I did a self cleansing as Jubeelee, Curious Dee, and Twighlight suggested. People in the park must have thought I was weird or crazy. Lol I had my shoes off and I was focusing on all the bad energy leaving my body and replaced by good energy.

Only time will tell now.

Thanks for replying

Hi Miandra,

Thanks for taking the time to read my stories and commenting! I have not been in any storm's harms way, thank god.

You're right about the troll, he/she needs to get a life. I wasn't paying attention to the karma points but since I've heard it mentioned here before I check my points yesterday and compared to today it look like I'm minus a few. Oh well, if voting negative makes them happy then so be it. I see the good points when they are given and the positive comments and that's all I really care about. Makes me feel like I maybe helped someone.

Keep in touch!

Hello Haven,

Thank you. We all look after each other here. The troll has nothing better to do obviously.
😲

I'm going to read some of your posts. I started reading one. I can't believe how far you had to travel for work. You must have been exhausted. Especially with such a young baby to care for.

I can't wait to read your experiences. I will comment as I go.

I hope you weren't affected by storm. I hope you and your family are safe.

Chat soon,
Miandra

Thank you for the karma point even if it was taken away 😢. It's the good intention that counts. I tried giving you a karma point and it told me to "please vote for someone else". Don't know why. I'll try again later 😉

Haven,

I just gave your comment a karma point and within seconds it was down voted by the troll. Ridiculous!

His day will come, it's called karma 😜

It won't let me up vote again because I've already done it. 😕

Anyway, Thank you.

Hello Haven,

Yes, I have been down. My brother passed away in August. I'm still trying to come to grips with it. Some days I'm great and then on other days I think about him a lot a feel sad he's gone.

I'm so glad I've found YGS. The members here are so supportive. It's incredible how helpful and knowledgeable everyone is.

I'm sorry to hear you're going through similar dramas of your own. 😨 You are right, we have to continue to cleanse and do what we can to keep the bad guys away.

Thank you so much for your kind words and advice Haven. I appreciate it.

Hi SWS -

I'm sorry to hear your having trouble with this pesky ghost again. The only advise I can give is for you not to give up on doing the cleansings. I can tell you from my experience, having performed one successful cleansing in one home only to have another in my second home not work the first time. I kept trying and it seems that things have quieted down a little.

On why 'it' came back - have you experienced any changes in your life lately, maybe even in your mood? I seem to be drawn to people that are sad and/or depressed, I often start feeling that way myself after being around them, that is when I start noticing a lot of activity picking up in my home. I also know that we can pick up a lot of bad or negative energy from places we have visited or people we have interacted with, carrying a crystal or some kind of talisman with you will help get rid of that bad energy so you don't bring it into your home.

I am going through a similar situation as you, trying to cleanse myself and my home of whatever negative energy is around. I will share with you anything new that I try that will work for me. Know that you are not alone. Keep us posted.

Regards

Haven

PS: Jubeele,

I'm going to do what you've suggested tomorrow morning. I'm going to go for a walk to the park and take off my shoes and visualise all the negative energy flowing down to the earth and good energy to replace it.

When I get home I will continue with the shielding ritual on me after a shower.

I don't have rosemary soap. I have Niva 😕

I will have a look at the grocery store before coming back home.

I'm going to do some googling into self cleansing now after I reply to you and see what else is necessary.

Thank you again. I really appreciate you making time to help.

Hello Jubeele,

Thank you for your advice. You, Curious Dee and Twighlight are right. I think I need to be cleansed. I don't know how to go about it. I'm going to start googling it.

I really appreciate your help.

Thank you.

Give Rex-T my best too.

Miandra, perhaps you should try what Dee and Twilight suggest: personal cleansing and shielding. Sometimes we can build up negativity from people and things around us that may attract certain unwanted entities.

When Rook was helping me with personal cleansing, he suggested going for a walk in the park or any garden where your feet can touch the soil, taking a few deep breaths and visualizing all negative 'energy/emotions' emptying from the body and feet, and into the earth. This is 'grounding' and it neutralises any bad energies. Stand there for a few minutes and let the 'bad' out then 'visualize' positive energy flowing into your body.

After that, you can set your personal shield using Rook's method: "you can create a shield for yourself using the 'home shield' technique but instead of focusing on your home visualize the 'flame' simply surrounding you instead of your home... Best time to do this is after a nice shower using a rosemary-scented soap (rosemary is good for purification and protection)."

Then meditate, keep your thoughts clear, calm and focused. Drink a glass of warm milk and sleep in peace. 😊

Curious Dee and Twighlight,

The really scary thing wasn't Steven but the actual situation. When I was using my arms to hit him off it felt like I was hitting air. (in other words, my arms went through him).

If anyone knows what sort of crystals I should use and a link to a website where I can get them, I'd be really grateful.

Thanks again,
Miandra,

Hi Twighlight,

I don't understand why he came back. It was for one night only, but regardless he got through the ritual.

I have a gold cross around my neck which I dipped in holly water now. Hopefully that and focusing the ritual in the bedroom will keep him out.

Chat soon,
Miandra

Hello Curious Dee,

Good to see you again.

About Steven, I don't get scared of him, just the situation.

I do the ritual all over the house with the insence and sage and sweeping dirt outside, leaving all the windows and doors open etc, but the last bit you have to light a candle in the center of the room and chant and create a shield of white light around you. I did that in the lounge room and now I do it in the bedroom.

The hag hasn't returned so the ritual is working at keeping her away thank goodness.

I bought a gold cross and necklace. I took it to church and dipped it in holly water and put it around my neck immediately after dipping it.

I've put sage on all the window ledges and salt on doors inside and outside.

Spirits are attracted to me.😨 I have to learn to live with it. I also need to encourage Steven to go to the light. I think he's lost and very lonely.

I will keep you posted.

Regards,
Miandra
😘 ❤ 😘
