In order to clearly answer: can a traumatic past contribute to spirit attachment, we must first understand the mechanisms of spirit attraction. Looking at spirit possession from a broad perspective, we see that it always occurs when our thoughts, emotions, or desires attract us to a certain kind of negative energy—also known as a vibration—on which the souls of the dead now reside. To clarify, we are talking only about those souls who, after leaving their physical bodies, have decided not to go to the Light, and instead, have chosen to maintain close contact with the physical world. As we know from previous articles posted on our blog, these souls reside in the low astral world, also known as the world of negative emotions. In order to attract spirits, we must have a negative thought, emotion or desire. To understand this better, I will give the following example:
Suppose someone has done us harm, or at least that is how we perceive it. We may think we have been wronged, but that doesn't always mean we have been, because it is a matter of interpretation. The approach to this event will determine the direction where our emotions will go. The list of possible scenarios are endless—because everyone reacts differently to different situations—but I will try to present those that are the most common.
Scenario # 1
Sometimes we react to a harm with negative emotions because we do not understand that in the Universe everything has a cause and effect. So it may seem that we are the victim of someone’s actions or words because something unwanted has happened to us, resulting in suffering. This kind of event has already happened to us before because all of our unsettled, misunderstood, and unresolved issues (today's psychology refers to them as traumatic experiences) tend to reappear in our lives from time to time. In some cases, when a person is ready to work through some of their trauma, such an event may manifest in a continuous mode. The more prepared we are to understand and work through the negative experience, the more often it manifests.
If we focus on the perceived harm, we might experience sorrow and distress. We will then see ourselves as a victim of a merciless world, or the entire Universe, because how we think about our reality here on Earth, also transfers to the Universe as well. The situation will soon resemble a vicious circle. The more we feel sorry for ourselves, the more powerless we feel, which will cause us to think that we will never get out of the negative situation. We think that we can't do anything and nothing will ever change. We are like a slave that sees no chance for freedom.
These types of thoughts will attract spirits whose predominant vibration from their physical life was feeling sorry for themselves. The spirit will then reinforce this emotional state, giving us the impression of even greater enslavement.
Scenario # 2
In this situation, we still react to harm—or a painful experience—with negative emotions. [Note: I prefer the word ‘painful experience’ because the word harm, in itself, implies that something has happened to you that was not your fault, unfair, and has left a strong negative impact on your life.
The key difference in our emotional response in this scenario is that we react with anger instead of feeling powerless. Anger gives us an illusion of power, which can push us toward wanting to change our circumstances. However, anger-driven change will not produce the desired results because anger is a destructive emotion, and by using it, we will always damage something or someone we care about. This reaction will ultimately lead us to hopelessness. This time we will also continue to be stuck in a victim mentality.
It may occur to us that we should take revenge for our suffering, reasoning that the suffering comes from outside and has been imposed on us by evil people and an evil world, and that revenge will lead us to change our plight. Unfortunately, this will simply not happen. We may, however, temporarily fall into the illusion that we have achieved success and broken the pattern.
When a dictator is overthrown, we believe that the lives of the repressed people—essentially slaves—will change for the better. However, after some time, we are horrified to discover that things have worked out in such a way that another dictator has replaced the previous dictator. Why does this happen? Because as long as there are people who consider themselves a slave, then dictators will continue to exist. What many fail to understand is that we become a slave to this vicious cycle at our own doing because deep within ourselves, we chose to respond with anger in addressing a painful experience.
This will only result in attracting spirits—angry, reactive spirits, who chose to act under the influence of anger and revenge. The more we allow spirits to work through us, the stronger our reactions will be, and the deeper we will go into the negative vibration range, in other words, great suffering.
Scenario # 3
In this scenario, we are aware that everything in the Universe has a cause, and in fact, we are that cause. We understand that what we have given to the Universe will eventually come back to us. We understand that sending out negative will only bring us more negative, that what we send out into the world comes back to us multiplied. Sometimes there are long delays in receiving the negative, so we do not always see that our present painful experience is the result of a previous painful experience that we once projected on someone else (perhaps even in another incarnation). Now, with mathematical precision, it comes back to us to balance karma.
In this case, we don't blame anyone for the painful experience—not even ourselves. We remember that blaming ourselves, or others, is a negative emotion that will bring us more of the negative. By blaming someone else, we will receive even more repression from those that we blamed. When we blame ourselves, we will feel much more self-hatred towards ourselves. And by hating someone or ourselves, we will be moving further away from the truth. The truth that deep inside we are beings made of God’s love and light who surrounded ourselves with large amount of dirt made out of negative emotions like anger, hatred, grief, jealousy, envy, etc.
Negative, anger-based experiences are only painful for us because we are not anger-based. That is not our normal vibration range. Our vibration is love (high vibration). Therefore a lot lower vibration, for example: anger, causes suffering. It's like putting your hand in a bucket of ice for a few minutes. Since temperature is affected by vibration, your hand begin to start to hurt almost immediately because you dramatically lowered the vibrations in your hand.
In this scenario, we know that the painful experience is coming to us, so we balance the karmic debt and understand that by sending out the negative only brings more of the negative, which results in more and more suffering. So, our first task is to transcend above all negativity—beyond all the anger and hatred. As we go along this path, we will notice how the clouds slowly part and more and more of the sun— love—begins to shine through. This love comes from our heart, and we will begin to understand that we are love, not fear.
In this case, the spirits will not approach us, but if they try, please remember that by distancing ourselves from the negative, we will also be distancing ourselves from spirits. They will want to possess us, but our tendency to free ourselves from negativity will drive the spirits further and further away from us. If we learn to always react in this manner, we will never again attract spirits and never become possessed.
