Cringe admission: Not only did I used to believe in stuck and earthbound spirits, I even offered sessions to ‘release them. I even have a gmail account with ‘spirit release’ in it. As embarrassing as that is, it’s also evidence of evolving ideas and when we know better, we do better.
After disentangling from fear based New Age stuff and reclaiming my power, my common sense returned to know we all go to the same place; the Spirit World. No one gets ‘stuck’ and no one needs any great white spiritual saviors to rescue them.
Everybody goes to the Light
Even really horrible people. They still go. No one gets left behind. We all belong to the same great spiritual soup of life so how could any of us ever get left behind? It’s like leaving an arm behind or a toe. It doesn’t even make sense.
So while the idea of earthbound spirits is popular in New Age fear-based ideas, I invite you to do some digging into the history of where and why the idea still has hold.
A fingernail scratch under the surface reveals familiar fear tactics used in Christianity to stop anyone from connecting to the Divine on their own and not using their priesthood and church gatekeepers. We’ve moved beyond that in the 21st Century and big organized religion is in decline.
While it may be ego puffing to offer spirit release or remove earthbound spirits – the “Big U” has a plan. And that plan is no one gets left behind. What on earth do they certainly need a mere human meddling in the Divine Plan?
Wouldn’t you hate to think that your loved one was stuck somewhere? That would be awful. While a spirit can come back and be with us and make themselves known by rattling, knocking, and moving things, they’re not stuck.
The Ghost in the Swimming Pool
A public swimming pool was haunted. It had ghostly things happening. Doors were slamming and lockers were banging and all sorts of things were going on this public swimming pool. They brought in a medium to see what the story was. This medium was well trained and knew that we all go to the Spirit world and no one gets stuck so she tuned into the Spirit person who was there.
Turns out that the spirit was actually a young boy that was drowned in a swimming pool. He’d come to try and let people know the way they were running the pool was going lead to an accident. Because he died in a public pool, he chose to return from the Spirit world to warn the employees to pay closer attention to the children.
When they investigated they found the teenage boys supervising the pool, were actually in the adult section watching the girls and ignoring the kiddie pool. It was an accident waiting to happen. And when this medium communicated to the spirit and found out what the story was and relayed the information, the people that ran the pool were able to make sure that little kids stayed safe.
Earthbound spirits- no such thing
The only earthbounds are us! Until we go to the Spirit world we are the ones who are stuck. Spirits return because they want to help or send a message of love. It’s our job to figure what and once we realize that, there’s no reason to be scared.
Still not convinced?
Congratulations! You might be a medium. That’s what a medium is – someone who can be “in the middle” between this world and the next and pass messages on. This is a beautiful gift, and if you’re still seeing Spirit, perhaps it’s their way of letting you know you have this ability. I love helping new mediums discover their gift – if this feels like you, comment below and share your story.
If you’re ready to learn how to contact the Spirit and bring through messages for others, without all the fear-based stuff that keeps you small, I have private mentoring sessions available, as well as small group online trainings throughout the year.
Being on my emails is the best way to get the heads up when courses happen.
