My previous post spirit clearing post was about "spirit dude". This one is about little spirit dude...
A few years ago I was at a party and a friend pulled me aside to talk with me. This is how it went down.
Her: "Clare something's up in my sister's house. There's, like, a weird energy in there. Kinda spooky, but not off the map. Any ideas why?"
Me: "Hmmm... Could be a spirit squatter of some sort. I'd have to check it out to know for sure."
We made arrangements for me to go to her sister's home the following week.
As I walked up the front walk I could see a little boy playing in the backyard of a house located behind this house. Then he disappeared...
I was greeted at the door by the mother of my friend. Upon entering the house I could definitely feel a spirit presence, but it didn't feel too heavy or bad in any way. I silently asked the spirit "Where are you?" I was immediately shown a Nintendo video game console. Then I felt a distinct pull towards the back of the house.
Following my instincts I proceeded to walk through the house, which I quickly discovered had a very strange and rather chopped up layout. There were rooms that lead directly into other rooms, a couple of odd hallways that seemed to lead to nowhere. I was fast becoming lost in this strange little house. It did not surprise me that there was some spirit activity in this place.
I asked "Can you please take me to the room with the Nintendo video player in it?" My friend's mom looked at me with that "how-did-you-know-there-was-a-room-with-a-nintendo-player-in-it?" look on her face, You know... that look...
I explained to her that there was definitely a spirit in the house and that it had pulled me towards that room when I asked where it was. She promptly led me to a room at the back of the house (which I was very glad for because I might still be looking for it if left on my own... ;)
It was the bedroom of the teenage son. It was dark - all curtains were tightly closed - messy - lots of clothes on the floor - chilly, and generally lower vibe all the way. And there at the end of the bed was the Nintendo game system.
Then I heard a child's giggle...
I asked her to take me into each of the other rooms and around the rest of the house so that I could do an overall assessment. Most of the rooms felt light and mostly devoid of spirit activity.
When we got back to the living room I told mom that the spirit looked and sounded like a little boy to me. A little guy that was enjoying spending a lot of time in that bedroom because he liked the Nintendo. He felt to be about 4 or 5 years old. He seemed like an in-between - caught between this world and the next. Likely a situation where he had died but not fully realized that he had.
She thought for a moment then said "oh my gosh... the little boy that lived in the house behind ours drowned in their pool last summer. He was about 4 years old...".
Ok... that explains that. And the apparition of the little boy playing behind the house that I had seen when I arrived.
I pointed out that he appeared to spend most of his time in the son's bedroom. As I told her this I saw him sit down on the couch at exactly the same time that she was going to sit down there. I asked her what other types of things the folks who lived there had experienced? She stopped mid-sit, looked at me and said "We feel someone on the couch and sometimes it feels like we are actually sitting ON someone. Do you think it's him?"
She also told me that, though, overall it was not too unpleasant to have the spirit around, it could feel kind of weird at times and, because of this the family preferred that whatever it was be removed from the house so things could get back to normal.
OK... good. The family was on the same page about this. This is so important in the clearing of a spirit. (I have a blog post HERE that explains that)
So... together we did the clearing ritual. This one needed to involve helping the little boy to go to the light so he could crossover properly into the spirit world. This was necessary for two reasons. 1: so that he didn't just relocate himself to another house or space and 2: to release him from the confusion of being in the in-between world and reunite him with the loved ones waiting for him to join them in the spirit realm.
This clearing was a very moving experience. When I was working with him he was both mischievous and sweet all at the same time. I was struck by his innocence and at the fact that he really did not realize that he had actually died. It was so easy to feel motherly and compassionate towards him.
To do a crossover properly and thoroughly I need to make a connection with the spirit - get the spirit's attention as it were - in order to connect him with the light. When I tried to get his attention this little dude actually ignored me at first. You know... the way a child would ignore you when you want him to do something. I eventually got his attention and watched as a portal opened to the light.
I asked that those who were waiting for him in love on the other side show up for this little fellow and take him home.
And this is where the clearing got emotional for me.
The little boy looked somewhat confused at first. Then an older man stepped through the portal holding out his hand. The little dude's face lit up and he took the man's hand. I understood this man to be an ancestor, likely his grandfather, who was coming to take the little spirit dude home. He gently pulled the little boy into his arms and took him through the portal.
I immediately felt a tremendous warmth in my heart and knew that all was now well for the little guy. Though his life here on earth was relatively short, he was now home with his spirit family.
When I came back down to earth from the connection I could see that my friend's mom was also moved. She had felt the warmth in her heart too.
My check in with the family the following week revealed that there was no more spirit boy in their house. Everyone felt comfortable sitting on the couch once again!
