Can Someone Be Possessed By a Spirit Guide?


These days, more and more people can perceive non-material worlds or dimensions, which are vibrating at a higher frequency of energy than does our own dimension of physical “reality.” One such higher-frequency, non-material world or dimension is commonly known as the astral plane. Here can be found, among others, the spirits of the dead who, after the death of the physical body, made the wrong decision to remain close to physicality. This choice creates suffering for both the spirit and for the living people with whom the spirit comes in contact.


Spiritual Development and Esoteric Knowledge


At the same time, more and more people are now interested in topics like spiritual development and esoteric knowledge. Such interest is a good thing by nature: it brings one closer to understanding one’s divine origin, and realizing that physical “reality” isn’t all there is, as the soul is immortal, and life continues after the death of the physical body.


Exploring the Astral / Emotional World

This higher level, i.e. the astral/emotional world, not only has a much higher frequency of vibration than the material world, but also has varying levels of vibrational frequencies within it. Yet in the lowest levels of the astral world, just at the transition from the physical to immaterial space, many dangers lurk for the embodied traveler of these higher worlds.


What are the Dangers of the Lower Astral Levels?


What are the Dangers of the Lower Astral Levels


Firstly, these low levels of the astral/emotional world are filled with the collective negative emotions of humanity: such as anger, rage, hatred, and fear. Thus, when we shift our consciousness to a higher level, as during meditation, we’ll likely be confronted with such negative emotions. This is dangerous, because if we become frightened, we’ll easily attract frightened spirits to us. They, meanwhile, crave our proximity because then, they can draw upon our physical energy, which they alone cannot receive.

Secondly, in the astral world, we’ll find many spirits who had been interested in spiritual development during their lifetimes, and perhaps even studied esoteric knowledge and spiritual development extensively. It will therefore be natural for them to be very comfortable with such vibrations.


Can We Attract Spirits through Shared Interests?

Let's imagine a case in which we living, reincarnated people become interested in such knowledge and development. As we know from previous posts, and from Wanda Pratnicka’s book Possessed by Ghosts, living people will always attract spirits to themselves that have similar interests. If we’re passionate about a certain activity, we may attract to ourselves a spirit who was engaged in exactly such pursuits during its lifetime. This applies of course to any and every other activity within human experience: including spiritual development and esoteric studies.

Thus, on the astral level we may have a spirit who devoted its entire lifetime to spiritual development, but of course never realized full understanding of the realities of life after death. This in turn would cause the spirit to go astray, such that after the death of the physical body, it would opt to remain in the lowest astral zone, and stay near material reality. Such a spirit soon becomes devoid of positive energy, and will go to great lengths to get closer to living people.

It does this by trying to "advise" living people during their spiritual development, while they’re in higher vibrational and/or astral states. The spirit knows this to a certain extent, but this knowledge isn’t extensive, since it didn’t give the spirit the best choices on the astral level to begin with. Nevertheless, the spirit may have a lot of so-called “book smarts,” perhaps having read a great deal during life, to the point of being able to quote from such books. Maybe, some of these works could even be considered “enlightened.”


The Pitfalls of Desire for Esoteric Knowledge

If our desire is to gain esoteric knowledge, or to be guided toward greater spiritual knowledge and then attract such a spirit to us, we’ll end up creating a bigger problem for ourselves. On the one hand, we may be stunned by the great extent of esoteric knowledge we suddenly acquire, nearly instantaneously. But what has happened isn’t our own sudden increased efficiency, or spontaneous enlightenment. Rather, we’ve simply been given access to the spirit's own thoughts and can read them, just like with a physical book: only, with much greater ease, throughput, and speed. This can completely fascinate anyone experiencing this, at first. One would probably try to gain as much knowledge in this fashion as possible. However, then one would attract the spirit with even greater depth of force, such that two elements next come into play.

Firstly, the person gains access to the spirit's extensive knowledge and thoughts. Yet we should remember that the spirit’s thoughts could not have been of the highest order, due to the fact that they didn’t help the spirit choose wisely after the death of the physical body.

Secondly, the person receives from the spirit all of the “baggage” of its own negative emotions, and thus will have to confront the symptoms of the spirit possession.

In our next post, we’ll delve into the characteristics of these spirits with just enough esoteric knowledge to be a serious problem, and then we’ll find out why they become such a total nuisance.
