I recently had a conversation with someone who was trying to release a spirit from her home. Someone had told her to simply talk to the spirit and ask them to leave. If the spirit does not leave, get very firm with them and demand that they leave RIGHT NOW! After she did this, the spirit still did not leave.
This has been the way many have dealt or have been told to deal with spirits in their spaces and it was because we had no other options open to us. Some spirits will leave when asked or be commanded to leave, but they will simply move on, hoping to find someone who can help them.
When spirits do not leave, however, it because they are energetically connected to a place. There is an attachment of some kind keeping them there and no matter how much we shout at it, the spirit cannot leave. People will then either learn to live with a spirit (or spirits) in their home or find someone to help release them.
If you have a spirit you have learned to live with, you now have another choice and it might be time to help them move on.
