How to Safely Cross Ghosts into the Light
by Nora Truscello
Paranormal disturbance is the number one issue I deal with on my website, IntoIntuition.com. Usually in these cases, a spirit has become trapped and needs assistance crossing over into the Light.
There are two categories of spiritual disturbance that I deal with. The first type of spirit includes angels, demons, aliens, and elementals. The second type of spirit, called "familiar spirits", includes humans and animals. When a familiar spirit dies and fails to cross into the light, they are called a ghost.
Moving into the light is often confused with going to Heaven. When we cross ghosts over into the Light, we are not necessarily sending them to Heaven. The Light is a space of Godly love and creation. The Light is everything and nothing, everywhere and nowhere, the Alpha and the Omega. The Light is omnipotent to everyone and everything's place in the universe. When a ghost is moved into the light, we know that it is moved to its proper place in accordance with God's will.
The best way to encourage a ghost to move into the Light is through prayer and visualizing it moving in your mind's eye. Praying for the dead stems back to early Christianity and the "Communion of Saints." The Communion of Saints is the acceptance that we are not individual spiritual beings, but rather all part of the mystical body of Christ. Our spiritual connectedness means that we all benefit from Godly spiritual activity such as acts of mercy and prayer. When we pray to help a ghost, we are helping a part of ourselves.
Once the decision is made to cross a ghost into the light, it is as if a mass invitation has been sent out to all of the ghosts within a hundred mile radius who are in need of help. All of the sudden, the initial ghost is swarmed by these other ghosts. The other ghosts, called friendlies, mean no harm, they are just also looking for help. It is important to let these other ghosts cross over before helping the troubled ghost, that way you can focus all of your help and attention on the spirit who needs the extra push.
It is imperative to properly protect everyone involved in the crossing over process including the ghost; everyone praying for the ghost; those people's families, pets, homes, etc. You establish this protection by asking your guardian angel to call on St. Michael the Archangel and his angels to set up rings of fire (the fire of the Holy Spirit) that protect against interference from dark forces. While you pray, visualize in your mind's eye, the protective rings of fire around everyone involved in the crossing over process.
Next, ask St. Gabriel, the Archangel to send down portals of Light. Visualize these in your mind's eye as giant cylinders of Light, 8-12 feet across, extending from earth's surface straight up into infinity. Ask your guardian angel to pray with you that all of the friendlies and the troubled ghost are able to cross over into the Light with protection, grace, and ease. It is important to set up these portals ahead of time because it can sometimes take days for all of the friendlies to cross over.
Once all of the friendlies have moved on, you can focus on the troubled ghost. One of my favorite methods that I often teach my students is to visualize a bridge extending from earth into the heavens, and see the troubled ghost gently glide across as you pray for it. There is no right or wrong prayer to say, but there is none more powerful than the Lord's Prayer (Our Father).
A common mistake people make in the clearing process is forgetting to clear the friendlies ahead of time. This makes the process exponentially longer and can even prevent the clearing from being completed. Another error, in my opinion, is going to a medium to communicate directly with the troubled ghost. This is time consuming, and usually expensive, because the medium is the one trying to convince the ghost to go into the light, rather than leaving the process in God's hands which is much quicker and more effective.
Failing to be of the proper mindset and use protective measures when performing a clearing can be not only detrimental to the process, but also exponentially dangerous. One of the absolute worst mistakes one can make, is doing a clearing without humility. You must be humbled by the knowledge that you are merely a tool in the process. God is the one performing the clearing, not you. Arrogance is dangerous and it hurts everyone involved. The most dangerous mistake a person can make is attempting a clearing by themself. There is truly strength in numbers as quoted by Jesus in the Bible, "Where two or more are gathered in my name, there I am." Dark forces always want to intervene and can fool even the most experienced exorcist when they are alone. When more than one person is praying, Jesus is present, keeping the dark away.
The more opened you are to receiving help, the more assistance is provided from the spiritual realm. Anyone performing any type of spiritual work, should be strong in their faith as well as aware of their own strengths and weaknesses. A strong spiritual foundation along with a clear understanding of the potential dangers facing you will help ensure that the assistance provided by the spiritual realm is coming from a place of Light, rather than the Dark...
