Identifying a Haunting - A Checklist and Solutions
is an excerpt from an artice by Tiffany Snow looking at hauntings from
a more religious, Christian perspective but offers great tips at
identifying a haunting! It is just one view out of many for dealing
with resolving hauntings.
you, a loved one, or your home being haunted? What kind of invisible
presences cause a haunting? What are the identifying signs of a
haunting? And most importantly, how can you end it? While there are
many TV shows and local ghost hunting groups around the country today,
most of these only identify activity in an area and few know how to
make unwanted activity cease. Since there are many things to consider
when cleansing an area once a haunting is discovered, this information
gives an identifying checklist and also acts as a core article linking
to several related articles detailing solutions.
looking into whether you are being haunted there are several factors to
consider. Most notably, what is exactly causing the problem? There
are many people who have skill in identifying a haunting problem but
far fewer who can solve the problem. Even those who have the gift of
seeing, hearing or feeling the other side can be fooled into thinking
it is only a small problem when in essence there is much greater
danger. And while this is not about religion, very often it is
necessary to have a faithful Holy person experienced in spiritual
warfare in the forefront doing the necessary prayers.
who have the gifts of intuitive or psychic ability may be able to sense
an entity, but it is much more important to have clear discernment of
what the presence actually is! There are many presences that do not
haunt that we may sense as well. Without a doubt, a Holy Angel is a
definite presence that you will positively recognize when one is near -
the power, comfort and love is undeniable. A spirit is a person who has
gone to God's love after death and now has free ability to visit as
they please. And although our physical body may experience a healthy
spirit presence in ways similar to other beings (cold spots, hair
standing on end, heightened awareness) there is not an extreme level of
fear, since your soul is inwardly aware of the helpful and loving
nature. An energy dusting is not a presence at all, but a layering of
high energies that has enveloped the area over a period of time.
Similar to entering a room just after a heated disagreement, a
sensitive person might sense many layers of what had occurred there,
but it has nothing to do with a current presence.
for hauntings, it again comes down to just three basic groups of three
beings - a ghost, a manipulated ghost (ghost given power by the unHoly
Angels) or the unHoly Angels themselves. It is easy for an unHoly Angel
to deceive a person by pretending to be something they are not -
including being an innocent child that died, or a harmless ghost that
"got stuck." This is where discernment becomes imperative! The unHoly
Angels can cause much more damage and create many more problems if they
can masquerade and pretend to be something other than the evil
influence they truly are. It is not enough to sense that there is a
problem, it is essential to have correctly identified what it is that
is causing all the trouble and to cleanse the area of it. It is not
automatically fixed just by saying "go to the light," as so many have
found out, even with simple ghost hauntings.
those who see, hear or feel the presence one way that always works is
to ask the entity: "Do you love Jesus now?" There is only one correct
answer for this - yes. If there is any other answer or even a
non-answer or a vague, indirect answer, you are being fooled and you
stand against something sinister that is not of God. This has a
scriptural basis. "Dear friends, do not believe every spirit but test
the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false
prophets have gone out into the world." (1 John 4:1) The best way to
test the spirits is asking if they love Jesus now. This identifies
exactly what you are dealing with. The unHoly Angels may have loved
Jesus Christ before but not after he came down from heaven, lived a
sinless life, ransomed all humanity by his death and was resurrected by
God, destroying the bondage of death, sin and inequity. The unHoly
Angels cannot state that they love Jesus now for they are in a battle
against God and Christ. They cannot claim to love Christ now and still
be against Him. This is one lie they cannot make.
as you can see, it is imperative to find out who it is that is causing
the problem. A ghost may have trouble with this question, a manipulated
ghost will definitely have trouble with this question and a demon or
unHoly Angel cannot answer this question as a "yes, I love Jesus Christ
you are given an answer of anything but a yes, you have a situation on
your hands. In fact, you may even feel more oppression after clarifying
what it is that you are up against. The unHoly Angels seek to do much
of their work behind the scenes, and desire not to be identified. They
seek to misinform, confuse, manipulate and continue to cause problems.
This is why faith and Divine guidance, not fear, wins the day. Now you
see more completely why it is so important to not just sense a problem,
but to identify what it is and to have the tools to know what to do.
Compare it to seeing a car pulled over on the side of the road with a
flat tire. Yes, even children can recognize that the tire is flat. It
is apparent for all to see. Is coming up to the person and telling them
they have a flat tire as helpful as removing the flat and putting on a
spare? It is about fixing the problem, not just demonstrating there is
how do we identify what is going on? First, let's consider a scale of
fear from 1-10 with a "1" being no fear, and a "10" being so afraid
that a person cannot go in or out of the area. In addition to the scale
to identify the level of fear, let's consider some other factors that
come into play. The following questions should be answered to the best
of your ability:
Does this place create an overall atmosphere of fear? Do you feel
uneasy or like you are being watched? What time of the day or night?
(3A.M. is a favorite time for evil activity - since it is directly
opposite the 3 P.M. death of Jesus) Does this happen cyclically or in
an established pattern, including in seasons or times of the month or
Do children and/or pets get easily scared here? Are there pets that
bark or hiss at seemingly nothing or act in a strange way? For
instance, staring off into space at something, or appearing frightened
for no apparent reason?
Is it adversely affecting your physical health? Is it a place of
physical harm such as bruising, scratches, pressure headaches? Does
this interfere with daily life or ability to mentally/emotionally
function well? Do you have strange dreams, thoughts that aren't your
own or are out of the norm for you, thoughts of anger, fear, harming
yourself or others? Does this interfere with your ability to work?
Does this interfere with your ability to pray or hear God clearly? Does
this cause strife in your relationship? Do you find you and family
members are easily agitated, and perhaps argue more than usual? Is
anyone living in the house on strong medications? Does anyone have/or
had addictions? Is anyone having anger issues or dealing with
unforgiveness issues for past hurts or abuses?
Have things been moved? Are objects suddenly found to have gone missing
and then reappear (for example: leaving your car keys on the table,
then unable to locate them but later you return and they are right
where you had left them)? Is it a place of hearing voices, seeing
figures or dark shadows? Do you see movements from the corner of your
eye? Are you being touched? Are there strange lights, circular shapes
or discolorations in photographs taken around you or in the area of
Have you or anyone in your family ever dabbled in occult practices?
These include playing with a Ouija board, holding séances, visiting a
psychic for a reading, Tarot cards, tea leaf reading, etc? Open portals
and unHoly invitations can be caused by people dabbling in the occult,
whether it is accidental or just kids reading something out of a book
or a small group intent on making a supernatural link.
Are there any tools of divination or objects such as idols or carvings
that were given/brought from foreign countries that might be dedicated
to demonic practices or cults? Have you received/purchased anything,
jewelry/furniture/etc. from garage sales, antique shops or other
sources where the item history is unknown? Portals can be made through
an object, which may be given to another person, thus passing the
connections on with it. Whether the person receiving it knows about it
or not they have just made a binding contract to the demons by agreeing
to accept the gift. Or if a person bought it, to the demon that
contract is still as binding to the person who now owns it, as it was
from the beginning by the person who first dedicated it through ritual.
Not all dedicated items become portals, but the incidence is high.
How long has this been happening? Did the previous owner or tenants
have similar issues? Do you know of any documented history or previous
problems in the home, of a haunted nature or otherwise? Has anyone died
on the property? Has there been damage to the property? Have there been
any modifications to the existing building or any current construction
projects now underway?
Is the house near a gravesite, graveyard, cemetery or burial ground?
Has the property ever been blessed by a Priest or other Holy person?
Are there any remarkable odors or occurrences of a foul, putrid or
rotting smell? Do the lights or electricity act up frequently? Are
there unusual cold spots in the house? Are there sounds that can't be
logically explained, including pounding, growling or knocking sounds?
yes to one or a few of these questions doesn't necessarily mean you are
haunted. But answering yes to many of them definitely means there is
something going on that shouldn't be ignored. It is important to
understand that even if you only have a ghost, it can attract the
unHoly Angels to your home, as the fear that has been generated is
something that the demons seem to feed off of, creating even greater
fear while seeking to cause more destruction of lives, physically,
emotionally and spiritually.
can also be caused by curses on the land. These can date back hundreds
or even thousands of years and can cause a myriad of disturbances.
These curses often stem from land disputes, clashes and takeovers and
can be as varied as those who make them. Similar to an item dedicated
through a ritual, a binding contract is on the land that many people
unknowingly inherit. Sometimes there is a central cursed artifact
buried on the grounds. Sometimes one or many ghosts (often manipulated)
will continue to defend their rights or cause havoc for any
trespassers. A priest is needed for these tricky situations.
a person is haunted, a Deliverance is needed. If you are one being
stalked, no matter where you go you will not be able to move away from
it, for its attachment is to you, not the house. Prayer is the answer.
You can do the prayer of deliverance by yourself, but when an exorcism
is needed or there is more against you than you know, or you are
confused or wavering in faith, you will need a Priest strong in
conviction to assist you in this process of receiving back your
freedom. Here is the Deliverance Prayer:
if there are any unHoly Angels in, on, near or around me, I nail, hold
them fast and silence them. I decommission, bind and encapsulate them
through the Power of the Shed Blood of Your Son, Jesus Christ. I bring
them up to your presence immediately Lord to deal with as you see fit.
May you fill any empty spaces and lonely places within me with your
love and your light. Thank you Father, In Jesus' name. Amen." Repeat
the prayer as often as you feel the need. It calls in the Holy Angels
to fight for you, and they always win.
house blessing is always essential, it is a dedication of all things to
the love of God. Sprinkle Holy water in each room, and anointing oil
over each window while reading prayers and scriptures out loud. It is
similar to doing a Deliverance on a house instead of a person, so
adjust the Deliverance prayer using your authority of home
ownership/resident and as a child of God recognizing the power of
Christ. Put a crucifix over each door that leads to the outside, and
one over each bed. Gather a group of friends and sing uplifting
religious songs and call in the Holy Spirit for physical, emotional and
spiritual healing on all participants. Receive an offering of communion
in the house, and continue to arrange occasions for celebration and joy
such as birthdays and anniversaries. Cultivate a prayerful attitude and
make a sacred space or altar in the home where you go daily to pray,
also making it a place where you arrange things that remind you of
wonderful times in your life; for love, joy and happiness are Godly
things. Make the darkest places the lightest, both spiritually and with
physical lights and lamps. Love Always Wins! We humans need not ever
fear being haunted, for the scripture is trustworthy and true: "Submit
yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you."
