What is Compassionate Depossession?

Compassionate Depossession is a humane Spirit Detaching session that benefits both the living person (host) and the attached suffering being (spirit) if that suffering being is reluctant to cross into the Light.


The first funeral I attended was my father’s. I was 26 years old. Until that time I had never directly dealt with death. Now, as a Shamanic Practitioner, I deal with death, dying and spirits daily. I feel privileged to have this up-close perspective. I no longer view dying or death as something to fear or dread, but as a natural process that will be experienced by each of us. How one experiences death is where I would like to begin…

What Happens If Spirits Do Not Cross Over?

In most cases, when we die our soul crosses over and we continue to live out our destiny. Sometimes there is an interruption in the ‘cross over’ process. This interruption can be a sudden death, strong emotional ties to something or someone in the material world, or the person that has passed feeling that that they are unworthy to go to heaven, or wherever their destination within their belief system might be. When these things happen, the person’s spirit can get stuck here, in ordinary reality, with us living persons. This scenario can cause conditions in which two realms brush together – the dead and the living.

One type of realm brushing can be when we see, smell, hear or sense that an unseen presence is near us. Most people view this type as a ghostly encounter.

How Do Possessions Happen?

The other type of realm brushing is when a spirit being enters and attaches to our energy field. There is no one reason for this type of energy field entanglement. The dynamics of this are unique to every situation.

In some cases, the spirit is unaware that they have died! They are wandering around in the dark void, confused and scared.  Sensing a human energy, they move closer and enter it because is feels familiar. Try to picture it in this way: You are wandering along a dark, country road on a cold, rainy night and you suddenly encountered a dry, lighted bus shelter – what would you do?  I would guess that most, if not all of us, would step inside for protection and comfort from the dark and cold confusion. To these suffering beings we are ‘shelter’ from the confusing void in which they were wandering.  There is no malice or intent of any kind, they are simply ducking for cover by instinct.

In other cases, the suffering being knows they have died but have, for whatever reason, – missed the shuttle bus to their destiny destination. Like in life, we all travel with our own baggage. Spirits are no exception to this reality, their ‘baggage’ can sometimes make them miss the shuttle for feelings that they:

  • died too soon
  • are not worthy to move on
  • are frightened that hell is their destiny
  • want to stay close to a loved one
  • want to stay close to a house or location they love

These suffering beings can consciously attach themselves to a living human’s energy field. They may feel attracted to a certain person’s energy, as this specific person reminds the being of their own past life. This is particularly true for beings who have suffered from addictions or had addictive behaviours in life. To continue experiencing the sensations of that addiction, they attach to a living person who have addictive habits or tendencies. The problem with this is the suffering being is experiencing these sensations second hand, so it is not as satisfying.  Seeking to attain that ‘high’, they can influence the host to indulge in these habits more intensely. An example of this would be a smoker, if a living person who smokes somehow entangles in their energy field with a that of a suffering being who was also a smoker in their lifetime, the living person could start smoking much more heavily than usual, without knowing why. These addictive behaviours can be dramatically exacerbated by a suffering being pushing its host to consume more in the pointless hope that they will feel the full effect of it.

How Can I Avoid Being Possessed by Suffering Beings?

Maintaining a healthy energy field is the best way to protect yourself from spiritual intrusions. Having a weakened spiritual immune system due to experiencing all different types of traumas can leave you vulnerable. Regularly connecting with your helping spirits, power animals and practicing good spiritual hygiene with things like shamanic healing and empowerments will increase your personal power which, in turn, strengthens your protection energy field.

How Do I Know If I Have A Spiritual Entanglement?

  • I just don’t feel like myself.
  • I don’t see myself when I look in the mirror.
  • What is wrong with me?

These are common sentiments when clients contact me for help.  They are not sure what the issue actually is, but they sense that something, just isn’t right

Attached suffering beings may live off a person’s energy and influence or impact them in a variety of ways: illness, pain, depression, substance abuse, phobias, emotional problems, suicidal tendencies and other issues may be in part due to the influence of overshadowing of a suffering being or beings for whom a person may unknowingly be a host.

These entanglements are surprisingly common. Most of us can be host to one or more of these suffering beings over time, or even at once. While that might be a shocking reality, it should not be considered a frightening one. Remember, they are there because something interrupted them ‘catching the shuttle’. There is a way to get those suffering being back on the shuttle, so they get where they need to go and your get to reclaim the full resources of your energy field.

How Do I Get Rid of a Spiritual Attachment?

The most comfortable and humane way to clear out any suffering being attachments is via a Compassionate Depossession. This a method of Shamanic healing that liberates 2 beings – the host (you) and the suffering being(s) who is existing within your energy field.

This process is a quiet and not frightening one. It is a lovely experience as you are able to help another being to continue their destiny journey in a positive and supportive manner. Clients are touched by the humanity and gratitude that is experienced throughout the process.
