When all else fails, look for a spiritual barrier to progress. I have said this to students and clients for years and yet I failed to consider that spirits might be stopping people from buying our house.
I was reviewing a session I had delivered some time ago where the departed wife was causing problems for her husband and his new wife and one of my spiritual companions pointed out that I might be experiencing the same kind of phenomena.
In the case of the departed wife, whose
name was Elise, I had known her when she was alive and I admired her
ability to create beautiful art. She died from cancer several years
ago and her husband had eventually remarried a beautiful and
sensitive woman who had known Elise and admired her while she was
The new wife was spiritually aware of Elise and kept feeling like she was being made to feel like an unwelcome guest in her own home. She knew of my spiritual counseling practice and asked me to intervene with Elise. I delivered a session with the husband and new wife present and we quickly connected to Elise who was completely ready for my help. The husband served as the conduit for my conversation with Elise and we quickly got into discussing what was going on.
Elise was happy for her husband in his new marriage, but she had such an attachment to the house they had shared that she did not want to leave. Interestingly enough, neither the husband or the new wife wanted her to leave either because they both loved her and her creativity.
I asked Elise if she would consent to be the artistic spirit of the house and guide the activities of those who shared the house into the highest possible state of creativity and she was delighted to take responsibility for that role as the guiding spirit of the extended household. She has always taken on that role when she was alive, but had dropped it somewhat when her body died.
Once Elise shifted from being a wife to a guiding spirit, the mood in the household changed and all parties were much happier.
My spiritual companions made me see that we had several qualified purchasers for the house who had inexplicably withdrawn after indicating a strong desire to have the house. I did a solo SRT session and asked, “What attitudes exist about letting someone else buy this house?”
I immediately got several negative thoughts like, “They are not good enough!” “They won’t take care of it!”
I told them that we no longer had the energy to care for the house the way we used to do and then I asked them, “Do you want to stay here and guard this house?”
I got a resounding “No!” and everything got quiet. I do not feel that anyone left at this point, but they are now willing to turn the house over to others.
We should see some results from this session soon. I will keep you all informed.
