[quote=“andyman, post:1, topic:5234”]… what I’m actually talking about are some type of Spirits who haunt people or a building or place.
Is there some type of ritual magick we can be applied to this type of situation?
I believe no L.H.P practitioner should have to put up with being bitch slapped buy a “ghost” or whatever kind of entity this is, I want to be able to speak with it, in a ritual setting and compel it to manifest in that way then, find out what it is and what it wants, then might even negotiate with it, or if not banish it[/quote]
The tradition I learned was called “psychopomp work” - psych - soul, pomp = escort, so you escort a stuck soul. When done by a Christian minister, it’s called deliverence.
You can heal them, interact with them, very occasionally learn from them, though most people’s intellect drops after death when they’re in that stuck and annoying stage so you might as well grab Joe Blow off the street because he won’t possess any more mystical knowledge - the thing to remember is this isn’t meant to happen, so you’re not usually dealing with a maestro here, just someone who accidentally fucked up the very simple act of dying - maybe for a good reason (couldn’t bear to leave their young kids, or they were murdered and want justice) but it’s usually a value that’s earthbound.
The main thing is to get them fixed and detached from whatever’s holding them here, and escort them to the next level where they can get on with their progression.
There are some exceptions, and some wander that level long enough to pick up a few tricks, but that’s extremely rare and even what they’ve learned (which is usually to psychically vampirise others like themselbves, thought-forms, or fear generated by the living) isn’t anything too helpful for a serious magician.
I advise against trying to trap and exploit such hapless spirits, you WILL piss off larger entities and forces then, whereas operating as a psychopomp tends to win you favour and the blessing of various spirits, plus it’s just a decent thing to do since most people who get stuck like this do have a major problem that you can easily help them with.
