compulsive control and spirits

How Could the Compulsion for Control Attract Spirits?


The desire for control often stems from a need to feel safe and secure. People with a strong need for control often believe they must manage everything to avoid unpleasant surprises or situations that could threaten their sense of stability. However, when this need becomes excessive and turns into a compulsion, it can create a strong negative pattern in our personality. Over time, the compulsion for control could also attract spirits into our lives.


Symptoms of Control Patterns

Symptoms of such a pattern may include perfectionism, lack of trust, anxiety, and difficulty delegating tasks (whether in work or home life), leading to isolation. Perfectionism results in chronic stress and dissatisfaction with oneself and others. A lack of trust causes problems in interpersonal relationships, as those who crave control often do not trust others. This constant need to supervise can also lead to chronic anxiety. Such individuals struggle to delegate tasks to others, which in the workplace can result in overload and burnout. This tendency can lead to social isolation, as others may avoid contact with someone who constantly tries to manage them.

The consequences of a negative control pattern are serious, including health issues, damaged relationships, low self-esteem, limited creativity, and professional burnout. The stress and anxiety resulting from the need for control can lead to health problems such as hypertension, heart disease, or sleep disorders. Excessive need for control can destroy interpersonal relationships, leading to conflicts, breakups, and feelings of loneliness. Those who cannot meet their perfectionist standards may suffer from low self-esteem or a diminished sense of self-worth. The desire for control can also stifle creativity and innovation, as the person fears risk and unpredictable outcomes.

Overcoming Control Patterns

To overcome such a pattern, the first step is to fully acknowledge it and understand its negative consequences. Learning to trust others and accept that not everything must be under control can help alleviate the symptoms. Practicing the delegation of tasks and responsibilities to others is crucial for reducing burden and building trust within a team or family circle.

Awareness, learning to trust the Universe, delegation, relaxation techniques, and therapeutic support can be key to overcoming the compulsion to control and achieving greater balance in life.

However, there are situations where such preventive actions do not yield the desired results. This is because the habit of controlling has gained strength over years or decades. This desire has been joined by various other negative emotional patterns that constantly draw us back to the "old" path. Such patterns tend to attract elements from the emotional world that reside on the same energetic level, such as fear, distrust, the need for dominance, perfectionism, frustration, anger, helplessness, embarrassment, stress, or resignation. Since the control pattern can become a dominant aspect of personality, it may appear in countless daily life situations, intertwining with our entire functioning.


How Could the Compulsion for Control Attract Spirits?

It is then just a step away from attracting with great force the spirits of the deceased who have not crossed over, and who possessed similar character traits during their physical lives. When the psyche of a spirit and a human merges, our negative emotions and the suffering they cause will be greatly intensified. Where we previously experienced anger, we will suddenly feel hatred, and fear will transform into panic attacks.

If we have reached this stage, it is worth seeking advice from someone who understands the problem of spirit possession to exclude or confirm the presence of spirits in our lives. A spirit does not have the skill or energy to detach itself from the possessed person independently. The spirit removal process can bring significant improvement to our situation, as the spirit projects very strong negative emotions onto us. This is felt as great psychological suffering, and in later stages of possession, also physical.

It is important to remember that the mentioned pattern can be deeply rooted in our psyche, meaning it will not disappear on its own when the spirit(s) are removed from us. It is highly likely that our psyche will continually return to the "old" path and attract the spirit back to our emotions. This means that to rid ourselves of the influence of returning spirits, we will need to undertake intense work on recognizing our own psyche. This will reveal how many areas of our emotional life have succumbed to emotional habits associated with the desire for control. Only this work will make us realize that we have established all this suffering by our own choice, freeing us from the tendency to fall into the role of a victim. We will understand our own responsibility in all this and gain the strength to transform other dysfunctional emotional patterns we have created.
