Getting Rid of Ghosts

I was watching a paranormal TV show last week where a family was being bothered by something paranormal in their home. Their solution to the problem was to run away and find another place to live. I've seen this happen fairly frequently with people being bothered by ghosts or things they can't explain. The problem with this is that it's usually a short term solution. Often, spirits get attached to people and will follow then to new locations. Even if the ghosts stays put, the new property owners will be left to deal with whatever the last inhabitants left behind.

I've also seen people perform all kinds of ceremonies to rid homes of ghosts, but in my opinion, these rituals rarely do anything to help the situation. Usually the spirit hides out for awhile, then just comes back with a vengeance.

In my opinion, there are two good ways of dealing with ghosts. One is to accept that they are there and learn to live with them. The other option is to simply ask, or command them to leave. Most ghosts will go if asked in a nice firm manner. So if you are trying to get rid of something, sometimes it helps to just ask for what you want.


  1. Wouldn't that depend on the kind of haunting though? I mean, if the ghost wanted them out of the house like Beetlejuice did, then they wouldn't follow.

  2. Yeah, I'm sure if a ghost really didn't want to leave, you couldn't force it out.
