How to Remove a Ghost or Apparitional Experience
The ability to remove a ghost or spirit is an active debate in the paranormal community. There seems to be no definitive answer on how to remove a ghost. There is also the basic question are ghosts real? Is it the duty of a paranormalist to actually cleanse a location, person, or object?
There is no proof ghosts exist. Ghost hunters rely on data captured from their equipment over long periods of time. Ghost hunters will then based off of collected data decide if a haunting exists. Possible “true”, haunting’s are extremely rare. Many clients will at some point ask the inevitable question, “can you get remove a ghost or spirit in y house?” The key is to understand the mindset of the client. What does the client expect as the outcome of a paranormal investigation? In most cases they want validation and peace of mind.
Treat the Ghost by Treating the Client
There is a diverse, and rich history behind the practice of spiritual cleansing’s. Which version to practice depends on the client and their need. The end result of a cleansing is for people to feel safe and at peace. One may find that answer a bit lacking and correctly so.
By definition ghosts are apparitional experiences, the key word being experience. That means practical contact with and observation of facts or events. In other words, ghosts become irrelevant without the presence of people.
Treat the ghost by treating the client. paranormalist’s should be honest and forthcoming with their clients from the beginning. Ghost hunters should clearly explain there is no proof ghosts or spirits exist. Ask those afflicted by the paranormal about their own spirituality and beliefs. This will give a clear direction on which rituals would be best for that specific client.
Anyone and not just ghost hunters can perform generic cleanings or blessings. Clients with specific religious needs should partner with experts to facilitate the necessary rites and rituals. Clients should never have to pay for a spirit cleansing.
Supplies needed for Removing a Ghost
There are many places to pick up supplies necessary to cleanse a ghost from a house. Many Catholic churches have holy water or baptismal water available at every entrance. Yes, you are free to take a small amount without fear of repercussion. The suggestion is to make a prayer to the Lord when taking the water and ask for divine strength, power, and blessing for the water’s use.
There are a myriad of places online, or in town, to procure candles, natural herbs, and religious items necessary to ritual blessings. Before cleansing a house of negative spiritual energy, it may be necessary to literally clean the house itself. The goal is to create a welcome and inviting space for the living. Homeowners who object too or avoid this step are only doing a great disservice to themselves.
A general cleansing will require holy water, white tea candles, incense, a smudge stick, and kosher salt, these represent the four elements: earth, air, fire, and water. The fifth (human) element is the invocation of prayer or blessing. Candle and fire safety must be used at all times (the goal of the paranormalist is not to burn down a homeowners house).
Performing the Ritual of Removing a Ghost

Those involved should prepare themselves by literally cleansing themselves, via shower and a dash of holy water, while offering a generic prayer such as, “Please protect me and bless my body and mind as I prepare myself to go out and help the “——-” family.
Paranormalist’s recommend the creation of fire-safe areas for the burning of candles and incense (or smudge). In addition, all unnatural noises and sounds such as fans, or TV’s should be extinguished. Windows and doors should remain open during the blessing phase. Window coverings should also remain open to allow maximum sunlight to filter through the house.
Every entrance and exit (threshold and base) must be blessed including the windows. Start with the main entrance (door) to the home, light a candle. Next, make a mark or cross above each entrance-exit by dipping an index finger into holy water. Then, sprinkle salt at the base of the entrances-exits. Lastly, a general prayer should be made while making infinity eights with the smoke from the burning incense or smudge (this is where a helper comes in handy).
I cleanse this room of any impurities, negativity, or anything that does not suit or support the people that live here. I command any all such negative energies to leave this house at once!Daniel Scott
At the conclusion of the cleansing, a wafting of incense or smudge should be made around each participant. A simple prayer such as, “I cleanse “insert name” of all or any impurities, negativity, or anything that does not suit or support their well being.”
