What is Entity Contamination?

Psychic Protection 101

Burning sage bundle purifies
Simon Watson
If you have ever become angry, vengeful, agitated, or depressed for no apparent reason, it is possible that the unseen forces of one or more entities have affected you adversely. Much confusion surrounds this topic, and there are as many ideas about entity contamination as there are authors. Regardless of your beliefs in this area, it is the intent of this article to give you an idea about negative forces in place and the ammunition to protect yourself, your space, and your loved ones without expensive outside intervention.

What is an Entity?

For the purposes of this article, an entity is anything perceived as outside of you that feeds off your energy or emotions. It can be a thoughtform that has taken on a life of its own, a discarnate energy pattern with malicious or non-malicious intent, a hook or attachment from one or more persons, or a discarnate being that feeds off the energy or thoughts of its host. An entity can jump from person to person or from apparently nowhere and is very easy to attract in these accelerated times. You are susceptible to entity contamination when you are with people, out shopping, at the movies, or at a restaurant. The great news is that entities can be controlled and expelled easily and effectively by just about anyone.

Causes of Entity Contamination

Many problems can be caused by entity contamination, including depression, anxiety, fear, addictions, suicidal tendencies, phobias, relationship difficulties, bad health, rage, hyperactivity, crabbiness, money problems, and blocks to personal and spiritual growth. This does not mean that every instance of problem is entity related, so use discernment in assessing any situation.

Common Signs and Symptoms of Entity Contamination

  • Sudden depression, rage, edginess, anger, sadness, or anxiety
  • Feeling suddenly dizzy or off-balance
  • Sleeplessness
  • Repetitive or weird thoughts
  • Personality changes
  • Chronic or sudden health concerns
  • Manic depression
  • Outbursts
  • Addictions
  • Relationship problems
  • Multiple personalities

Methods to Control and Remove Entities

There are three easy and effective ways to control and eliminate entities. With a little research, you can find out why these methods work, but for our purposes you just need to know that they do work and are worth trying.
  1. Fill a bathtub with water and add one medium handful of all-natural sea salt (available at health food stores, department stores, etc.). Take a normal bath, making sure that you dunk fully at least once. This will remove entity contaminants from your aura and other energetic fields.

  2. Smudge yourself and your space with white sage (available in bulk at herb stores, metaphysical shops, online markets, etc.). Place some loose white sage in a safe metal container or incense burner and light it. (I do not recommend glass ashtrays or dishes, as I have seen some blow up from intense heat.) Fan the sage smoke over your body and walk it around your house or apartment in a counter-clockwise fashion. You may feel a sudden shift as an entity is expelled into the smoke. Smudging sticks provide an alternative to loose leaf sage that works as well.

  3. Entities respond well to prayers that ask them to leave or to transmute into light. Though it is hard to believe sometimes, they do respect free will. Many examples of prayers can be found on the Internet or in spiritual circles worldwide. Ground yourself as much as possible before reciting one. You can repeat a prayer as often as necessary.

    Example:


Regardless of whether you believe in entities or not, the above methods indisputably remove negative influences of all kinds and cannot do any harm. For severe contamination, all three methods can be used daily.
