Make a ghost leave your home

Sometimes when you get into a new house, you may feel that a spirit inhabits it : you notice some strange sounds, apparitions and objects moved. You may therefore want your peacefulness to be restored, whether the ghost is well disposed towards you or malicious.

The first thing to do is talk to it, gently, telling it of our desire to live in peace with it. You should never talk to it badly because if it is malevolent, it could attack you or our family.

You can also get rid of negative energy by hooking a bunch of dried sage leaves to a stick, light it and walk in the house. The smoke from the sage leaves remove negative waves. Be careful then not to set fire to the house.

If no improvement is visible, you can make use of professional experts in the field. For example, a priest will bless your house while a medium will try to determine what the ghost wants and why it acts the way it does.

If you tried everything and the situation has not changed or worsened, you can try to perform an exorcism on your house to make the ghost leave. You must call for a priest trained in this practice. You can check with your usual priest in order to get into contact with a competent person.
