Ghosts are ordinary people who have become lost in transition for one reason or another. Some merely ghost indefinitely. Others interact with the living in non-obtrusive ways. Then there are those who, once they find a vulnerable human host, they may make many attempts before the person responds to them. In time, some advance to the stage where they may want to pressure, manipulate or even control a living person.
As a result, having an Attachment can look very different on different people. The effects are also specific to the individual based on the ghost spirit that Attached, their motives and personality. Influences range in severity. A mild Attachment might have the effect of recurring persistently to the consciousness of a person and remaining in their thoughts and memories. A moderate Attachment might influence a person’s behavior. A severe Attachment can take over a person completely and possess them for a short or long period of time.
Nonetheless, there are telltale signs of what is happening for those who know where to look. These symptoms become more evident in Attachment cases that have increased in severity because there is some type of progressive change that accompanies the process of an Attachment entrenching itself in more firmly.
Author L. Sims developed the following severity scale in an effort to explain what this looks like.
Absent: No Attachment Present A person feels and behaves in ways consistent with their personality. The experience of time is sequential without any gaps. Possible: Possible Attachment of relatively low vitality whose influence is perceived as a nondescript minor nuisance. Symptoms are temporary and can include unspecified mental, physical and/or emotional duress that seem to have no identifiable cause. Momentary lapses of time where one is lost in thoughts or impressions or self-indulgent in nature.
Mild: Evidence of an Attachment may begin to become apparent during periods of acting out of character. Afterwards you may wonder, ‘Why did I do that?’ or ‘Why did I think that?’, ‘That’s not like me.’ New desire to pursue a harmful or self-destructive behavior. Other symptoms can include: chronic, persistent vague stress, or undiagnosable physical ailment.
Moderate: One or more Attachments that influence how you think or feel though you probably aren’t aware of their presence. Lack of impulse control regarding recent new harmful or self-destructive desires. Lingering lapses of time where one is lost in or preoccupied with obsessive thoughts and impressions that are out of character with the self. Prominent: Parasitic Attachments of a prominent nature have achieved the ability to increase their own fitness by exploiting hosts for resources. In the case of ghosts that Attach, they can gain strength, even thrive, while the host is receding. In some cases, they may wait until they become strong enough themselves. Or, they may enlist or coerce one or more weaker ghosts in a hierarchical fashion with themselves at the top. The others can be used for energetic fuel or in order to gain strength in numbers.
In prominent cases, one or more Attachments could be present that begin to drive a person to the point of behaving in ways that is out of character. Their presence is evidenced by persistent and at times, preoccupying thoughts that are out of character for the host. Experiences may include: paranoia, disrupted sleep, nightmares, sleepwalking, significant and periodic losses of time, non-medically related blackouts with little-to-no memory of what occurred during that time, or uncontrollable impulses. A person may feel a strong desire to be with or otherwise finding themself with people or at places that are new and out of character. One may have unusual ESP activity such as: one may hear voices inside or outside their head. Or, find themself talking to people who ‘aren’t there’ but are there in spirit. Another sign of a Prominent Attachment is that one’s life spirals out of control but in actuality, the Attachment is in control during these times. At this stage, the most obvious indication of the presence of an Attachment in someone else is an abrupt change in personality. When an Attachment has reached the prominent phases, it causes people in the host’s life to question their perception and judgment concerning the person they thought they knew. At the same time, friends and family may be feeling things like: ‘I don’t know ‘you’ anymore. ‘How could ‘you’ have done that?’ or ‘S/he gives me the creeps.’
Severe: In the severest of cases, the intention of the invading spirit(s) is to displace the host completely. Ghosts that Attach learn from each incident and gain experience, strength and garner more authority over the body. Undiagnosed as a separate entity, even at this late stage, and without some sort of diagnostic reference , the host may still be aware of the foreigner. In Severe cases, one or more Attachments are in possession of the body most of the time. The person becomes sidelined during these times. The host spirit either watches helplessly as the Spirit Operator animates their body. Or, the host is totally out of their body and therefore has little or no recollection of the events that transpired while they were ‘Out’. This process accounts for times in which there is a complete change in personality followed by memory loss. Externally, there is increased evidence that, without realizing it, one passed through periods of unconsciousness during which someone else carried out activities unknown to the self. Later, the host is left to proclaim that ‘it wasn’t me’. Evidence that, (such as other people may say) you did ‘this’ or ‘that’, but you have no recollection of doing those things yourself.
In severe cases, family and friends my notice that there is noticeable shifts that stand out in the persons photos, most predominantly in their eyes. In some cases of complete take-over referred to as extreme possession, the spirit born into the body is no longer connected to it. Instead, the body is solely inhabited by Attachments. Most often, a few (one-to-three) are generally in charge. The dominant Attachment prevails and take over the body because the spirit born into that body leaves it for good. Hopefully the host spirit makes the successful transition to the afterlife. If not, they too end up ghosting.
In all of these cases so far, Robert Major and his Ghost Remover team have had to respectfully decline to perform a clearing because they and their spirit helpers have not been guided to make a determination as to which Attachment should get the body to inhabit as their own. Prominent Attachment and Extreme Possession are an insidious type of Identity Theft. Only it is your actual body that is stolen for a time while you are usurped. You become either a helpless bystander or are totally unaware that another spirit has taken control of your body and is, by virtue of their physical appearance, impersonating You! Attachment and possession are the crime that Robert speaks about when he says: “Attaching is a crime that we won’t tolerate.”
Such abilities cause the host spirit to question himself. He might think or say things like:
- I’m not myself
- That’s out of character for me.
- I don’t know why I said (or thought) that.
- I’m haunted by . . .
- (Referring to) ‘My demons’.
At the same time, friends and family may be feeling things like:
- I don’t know you anymore.
- Who are you?
- That’s not like you!
- How could you have done that?
- S/he gives me the creeps.
The most obvious indication of the presence of an Attachment is an abrupt change in personality.
Because of the invisible nature of ghosts, Attachment victims may not understand that they are the victim of this type of Identity Theft because most modern societies do not acknowledge that it exists. As a result, victims are often bewildered and frustrated. And, without credibility, with the exception Robert and his team, they are left with nowhere to turn for help.
The Ghost Removers mission is to expose the nature of these entities and help the living human beings they affect and the lost souls they encounter.
