Sometimes an earthbound spirit is malicious, sometimes benign, in just the same way that some people are nice and some are nasty. Spirit release is the act of sending a spirit across to the Light and is an act of compassion. I can help the vast majority of earthbound spirits in this way, the tiny minority that will not go are safely removed in such a way that they cannot come back and bother the client again.
Please note I do not interview the spirit to find out more about them. My job is simply to get the spirit across to the Light where I believe they will receive the help and healing they need. It is rare that the spirit attachment is anyone the client knows, generally they are just using the energy of the host to sustain their existence on the Earth plane.
Spirits can influence the moods, thoughts and behaviours of susceptible people, however it needs to be clear that having an earthbound spirit around you is not the same as 'being possessed'!
