A Multi-dimensional Wake Up Call
One of the hardest facts of coming to terms with our multi-dimensional nature, is that we share the subtle energetic ecology of the astral planes with other beings who are not always friendly. Some in fact, can be downright nasty and pathological.
Sorry folks, the astral planes, just like the physical ones, are not always sweetness and light. But rather than putting our heads in the sand, and living in dangerous denial of the shadow — which unfortunately, many spiritual seekers tend to do — let’s look this issue square in the eye, and try to dissolve some of the ignorance and fear which allows such negativity to get a hold of us in the first place.
Chronic denial of shadow, can be an aspect of spiritual addiction. For more, see
Negative Entities: What are They?
Note: this is a very basic list of negative entities more commonly identified by Western esoteric traditions. The specifics of such beings and how to deal with them, may differ according to tradition and culture.
Negative entities can include:
Disincarnate beings: the earthbound spirits of people who were once alive on the physical plane, but have been unable to properly pass on and return to source.
Negative discarnate beings: astral beings who have never existed on the physical plane at all.
Negative elemental beings
Human-created negative thought and emotional forms: entities created by concentrated mental and/or emotional energies such as anger, frustration, lust, grief, hatred, fear or guilt. These two are bound together because of the way our emotional responses are so heavily influenced by our beliefs and intellectual tendencies.
What do These Beings Want From Us?
One of the main features of negative entities is that they seek to trick you into thinking that they are a welcome part of your own energy body, soul or psyche. They do this in order to gain your acceptance and permission to keep manipulating you into situations which will give them opportunities to create more havoc and extract more energy.
Does this sound familiar? Have you ever wondered where the idea for vampires came from? Well, it has it’s roots in ancient knowledge of the dangers of negative entities from the astral realms.
One of the principal tenets of the vampire mythology is that you don’t invite one into your home. This is a metaphor which expressed literally, means don’t invite parasitic entities into your bodily energy fields, thoughts, emotions or actions, and by extension into the physical body, where they may eventually cause chronic disease to manifest.
The most surefire way to detect and remove negative entities, is to consult a qualified energetic healer operating within a tradition that you feel comfortable with.
Although a number of energetic healing traditions recognize the importance of negative entity extraction, Shamanic healers in particular, are noted for their ability to remove negative entities and keep them away through soul retrieval work.

The outer protective layers of the body’s subtle energetic system could be compared to those of a biological cell. They provide immunity from destructive forces which seek to invade and manifest more of themselves at the expense of the host.
When pieces of our soul splinter off due to trauma in our present lives, they can punch gaping holes in our energy fields. The role of the body’s subtle energetic layers in translating higher-dimensional frequencies of energy into our experience of the physical plane, means that when they are damaged, our ability to engage with our reality in a healthy and balanced manner becomes seriously impaired.
This vulnerability can be exploited by negative entities, which seek to deepen and widen existing breaches in the Auric layers to increase their access to energetic nourishment.
Past Life and Ancestral Karma
We can also be born with pre-existing weaknesses or holes in our Auric layers, due to the effect of past life and/or ancestral karma. Such weaknesses can make it easier for negative entities to invade and make food and lodgings for themselves in the void left by the missing piece of soul.
A good healer can not only remove and banish such entities, but is someone who will positively empower you with knowledge and confidence to work through the lifestyle, emotional, Karmic / ancestral issues that may be making you more susceptible to negative entity intrusion.
Depending on the kind of entity, it may take an energy healer one, a few, or even several or more visits to remove. Some are easy and can be picked off in a session, like leeches. At the other extreme, there are more resourceful and pathologically determined entities, which create the need for a much more prolonged and challenging treatment regime.
In any case, it is absolutely crucial that people cooperate very closely with their energy healer to make the necessary changes to banish negative entities and make it very difficult for them to return.
Ways to Protect Yourself
The best cure is prevention. There are a number of things we can do to prevent negative entities from attaching themselves in the first place.
Make positive lifestyle changes such as stopping smoking, alcohol and/or drug abuse. These kinds of behaviours weaken and eventually create holes in your energy field. As any energy healer who has worked on the field of a drug or alcohol addict will tell you, their aura looks like Swiss Cheese.
Reevaluating your social, work, or family life to reduce exposure to environments or people who may be full of negative entities. Sometimes being in such situations is unavoidable, but if you have been in this kind environment, it is good to remember to cleanse your energy field. Negative entities are much easier to remove when they have only been attached for short time.
Reduce exposure to persistently stressful, dirty, disorganized, toxic, violent, abusive or trauma-saturated environments. These can severely damage our energy fields and increase susceptibility to negative entities.
such places might include:
certain pubs and clubs
certain kinds of crowds
mental institutions, hospitals, jails
Not surprisingly, graveyards are a haven for wandering earthbound spirits looking for a ride and a feed. The intense negative emotions (guilt, anger, fear, hatred etc.) held by some people when they die, causes their earthbound spirits to seek out and attach themselves to the energy fields of people with similar qualities. If they can’t manage this directly, they will hitch a ride on any passerby to get closer to and attach themselves to others who most strongly express the same dominant negative emotional patterns.
Sacred symbols or programmed crystals placed on your person or in living or work areas, can be a strong source of protection from negative entity intrusion.
Smudge your energy field and living spaces. This does not get rid of entities, but it can reduce other negative energy in the environment to which they might be attracted. This makes it much harder for them to get the upper hand. Herbal smudging after any arguments, violence or accidents, is a particularly good idea.

A pre-disposition to certain kinds of negative emotional states can make you much more susceptible to the manipulations of mental and emotional thought-forms. Ensuring that you are grounded physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually, is a powerful way to resist negative entity intrusion.

The Responsibilities of Occult Practitioners: Subtle Energetic Hygiene
Those involved in any kind of occult practice as part of their spiritual development such as spell work, or Kundalini raising, have a responsibility to protect themselves against intrusion from negative entities.
Yes, dedicated Yoga and Tai Chi practitioners this also means you!!
Occult practitioners are prized targets for intrusion from negative entities for a couple of reasons. Firstly, because spiritually developing people cultivate increased amounts of spiritual energy within their fields on which negative entities can feed and more effectively manifest their will. Secondly, negative entities have a vested interest in waylaying people who are trying to develop spiritually because holistically happy, healthy, well-balanced and sane people, basically means less food.
