In the last
decades, obsession has been increasingly pervaded Earth, causing
perturbation and suffering.
It certainly is a
disease, but a disease of the soul. Actually, our soul creates
the environment necessary for obsession to develop itself.
So, what is an
obsession? It is the domination a spirit exercises over
somebody. This domination occurs in various degrees, from a
simple influence to the fascination and subjugation, even
As explained by
Allan Kardec, the Spiritism codifier, “Obsession is a permanent
action exercised over an individual by an evil spirit.”
It is a permanent,
and not random, action through which a prosecutor spirit (the
obsessing person) assimilates himself to an incarnated spirit (the
obsessed person), and uses the resources he has available so as
to obtain what he wants.
Since the act of
obsessing is an evil one usually derived from a revenge desire
– for something suffered by the obsessing person in a previous
life and inflicted by the obsessed one - the obsessive action is
perpetrated by an evil spirit. It is not perpetrated by a good,
or by a “suffering” spirit.
spirits are those that are still very connected to the places
and situations they lived, and that still keep on their
spiritual body the effects of the diseases and the pains they
went through while incarnated. When these spirits spend a lot of
time with someone, they can transmit them their feelings and
sensations. In these cases, the one suffering the influence will
end up by visiting medical doctors without ever finding the
reason of his/her afflictions.
Can a spirit be
When we talk about
evil spirits it does not mean that they will be like this
eternally nor that they were created this way. They are not
different from us, but only that they chose a path not in
accordance with the cosmic laws, therefore infringing good moral
patterns. There are obsessing ones that act evilly only towards
the one they hate (the one they obsess). Others feel real
pleasure in being evil and there are even those that are
terribly perverse and cruel; real monsters of evil and
perversions of all natures. These are the ones that some call
Demons, Satan, Devil, etc.
However, a spirit
never move backwards in his/her evolution. The values acquired
are retained in his unconscious, and his moral falls are only
temporary, even if they last for thousands of years.
Many spirits, when
reaching a medium degree of evolution through reencarnatory
experiences, i.e. the time in which their divine consciousness
starts to wake, chose the inferior attractions and dive deep
into their passions. And in this crossroad, torn between the
sayings of their consciousness and their choices, they decide to
smother the call they receive from the above, and isolate
themselves from the essence of their (and all) spirits, which is
the light of God. It is as they had involved their consciousness
in an energy of negation, suffocating it. But all of these, from
to the bad to the worst, one day will get tired of their own
evil and will resume the path towards evolution. God would not
create beings able to stay forever mean.
are engaged in an important task that is called disobsession,
that is the healing of obsession, by treating both the obsessing
spirit and obsessed one. Not rarely, these sessions (or meetings)
for disobsession work with terrible spirits of evil who, at one
point, give up on the inferior regions and decide to retreat and
change their lives. This retreating spirit prepares then for a
new incarnation, which will certainly be a tough one, but that
also represents the inicial step towards spiritual development.
In a case such as this, there is usually the "hand" of a beloved
spirit as for example the person who was his or her mother on
Earth, and who goes to the inferior regions with the aim of
convincing that evil spirit of retaking the good path.
On that which
concerns the spirits that have reached a higher degree of
evolution and whose consciousness are already harmonised with
the divine laws, they no longer feel attracted to the lower
regions, because they have already eliminated in themselves all
the remaining of an animalised nature. The legend about an Angel
that envied and had the ambition of becoming God – and that was
thus sent to Hell – has different symbolisms, due to the fact
that such an elevated spirit cannot "fall". Ambition, envy,
hate, selfishness, and other related feelings, are negative
values that only exist in the primary zones of evolution.
Why does a spirit
get involved into obsessing an incarnated spirit?
always happen for reasons of revenge, that is, the obsessing
spirits are "collectors". They are in fact asking for reparation
for the damage we caused them in previous lives.
There are also
cases of obsession by spirits who were aborted. When they see
that their aspirations to return to Earth through reincarnation
have been frustrated, they seek revenge against the women who
were to receive them but that later chose to have them expelled
from their womb.
processes have their origins in vicious (or morally condemnable)
conducts, due to the rule that "similar spirits attract each
There are also the
cases of obsession that were "ordered" through black magic, as
to cause harm to somebody.
How can someone
become obsessed based on his or her conduct?
Mediums, in their
activities and in the books they have psycograped, tell us about
people who attended morally and spiritually low level places, as
for example brothels, and by this habit attracted spirits
addicted to sex that started to follow them, and induced them to
lust and depravation, so as to profit from the repugnant sexual
energies generated by these acts.
similarly in the case of other addictions, and even of dishonest
behaviours that are not in accordance with the cosmic ethics.
We all have the
spiritual company that we attract by our behaviour and actions.
What can one do to
"heal" from an obsession?
In any process of
obsession, the cure remains in a conduct that corresponds to the
cosmic ethics, it is in reforming oneself intimately. It is also
important to find a spiritist centre whenever possible so as to
receive an energetic healing* and guidance, and in order for the
obsessing spirit to receive assistance through specific
treatments. The spiritist centres, of kardecist orientation, are
institutions well informed about these subjects which
systematically dedicate themselves, among other things, to
helping in these sorts of situations.
However, the cure
depends mostly on the obsessed spirit conduct, on the effort one
makes for one's own growth and illumination. When this one is
able to develop love in his or her feelings, making it present
in one's attitudes, the vibratory band will be elevated and the
tuning previously held with the obsessing spirit will be lost. This
is very important because the prosecution is carried out with a
feeling of revenge and the prosecuted of today was the "executioner"
of yesterday, i.e., there is a karmic debt to be settled. In
these cases, the best way the settle it is in obtaining the
forgiveness of the obsessing spirit and in helping him to find
the way to his own spiritual growth.
When the persecutor,
or an entity of very low spiritual condition, is involved in the
vibrations of love of a group, it is possible to observe major
changes on him or her.
A medium who has
the gift of seeing, when present in the meeting, can observe how
radical these changes are. A spirit of low vibration is
generally seen by these mediums as a being with an ugly or even
horrendous look, dressed in dark clothes and with a bad smell
and a disagreeable countenance. Nonetheless, when such spirit
receives the vibration of love carried by group and the medium
that incorporates him or her, something starts to disintegrate
in him/her. The doctrinator then speaks to the spirit and makes
him/her see that he/she is delaying himself and his evolution.
The doctrinator in fact seeks that the spirit forgives and gets
away from the obsessed spirit. The benefactors, responsible for
the work, also use other resources, such as bringing someone who
was dear to the obsessing spirit, so as to convince him to
forgive and forget his prosecution. Hence, with these works,
even the spirits appearance improves to the better.
should not underestimate the power of prayer. As the Book of
Spirits – one of the Spiritism codification books written by
Allain Kardec - teaches us at question 479, the "prayer is
always an efficacious means of obtaining help; but you must
remember that the muttering of certain words will not suffice to
obtain what you desire. God helps those who help themselves, but
not those who limit their action to asking for help. It is
therefore necessary for the person obsessed to do his utmost to
cure himself of the defects which attract evil spirits to him."
* The energetic
healing is an energetic "transfusion" and
of the magnetic field of the needy person.
It is carried over
at the spiritist centres by people that
were prepared for
it, and who use their hands for the exchange,
symbolises a love gesture. In these cases,
there is also the
assistance of the spirits
competent in the
manipulation of energy.
