Apparently, our house has a nickname in the spirit world. I’d picked up on the phrase “house of light” in a card reading a few months back but had forgotten all about it – until we had an unexpected visit from a passing spirit in January.
The month before had been a time of excitement and joy for us. We adopted a puppy through a reputable breeder, and he finally shipped to us on the eighth. We were so excited! He turned out to be the most adorable, loving little guy too!
We also had quite a few family members visit us for Christmas, so as you can imagine, we didn’t notice much spirit activity for a while.
In the middle of January, though, it started to pick back up again. Kiani started seeing figures walking past and occasional flashes of light here and there.
One evening, I got in the car to pick my son up from his martial arts class and felt someone in the car with me. It felt a bit like a grumpy old person. Not harmful, just angry and unpleasant. Not the type of spirit you would feel comfy around.
(It couldn’t get into the house, so it decided to lurk in the front yard instead. Because of this incident, I started including our property as well as our house in my cleansing blessing rituals.)
I opted to ignore it and went on my way. I didn’t feel it once my son got into the car—
(My son throws out a natural white light energy. There is something special about him, and I hope to find out more one day.)
—and since these types of spirits can’t get into our house, I forgot all about it once I was upstairs.
A little while later, I was sitting on my bed, playing on my phone, when I saw a cream-colored human figure walk past my doorway a couple times.
I remarked on this because I don’t usually see spirits. That’s mostly my daughter’s department.
Kiani replied that she’d seen the same figure a few minutes ago.
I put my phone down and said out loud, “Is there a spirit here? Can you come over here a minute? We’d like to talk with you.”
“Whoa!” breathed Kiani. “I just saw a streak of light and two orbs come toward us!”
I immediately grabbed my tarot cards and spirit communication gadgets.
The spirit box was drained of batteries. It was odd because it shouldn’t have been, but yet, not odd with the amount of gentle spirits we get in the house. Spirits often affect electronics this way.
The Ovilus (which reads energy in the air and tried to match words to the frequencies) was working, though. I turned it on and set it down. It quickly piped up with the words, “little magic.”
I picked up my tarot cards, shuffled them, and asked the spirit a few questions.
“Who are you?”
“Why are you here?”
House of Light.
Something outside isn’t nice.
The Ovilus spoke up again and said, “Safe.”
“I get the feeling that you are a kind spirit,” I said gently. “You’re welcome to stay here until you feel better.”
There was no reply, but I didn’t feel I needed one. It made me happy to think that our home was so full of warm, spiritual light that passing spirits could come here to rest and think. Perhaps this spirit had encountered the one I felt outside and came into our home to escape it.
The gentle spirit’s replies also explained the variety of passing forms and shapes my daughter sees on such a regular basis, as well being a reminder of how important it is to keep our home protected.
We had a lot of these gentle visitors over the next few months. At first, I didn’t know how to help them, or even if I should try. Eventually, after talking with other spirit mediums and reading a lot of their written work, I changed tactics. I hung a hand-written letter up on the back of my bedroom door for any passing spirits to read. It explained how and why they should go into the light and recommended that they visit the funeral home down the street from me, where the light was always available behind the many newly passed spirits in the building.
I also learned how to create the light myself, but I have to say, it’s quite strange to create something useful you can’t see! I feel like I’d imagine a blind person would, leading a seeing person across the street! Because I can’t see the light I create, I have to rely on what Kiani sees during the rescues and my intuitive senses, which can pick up on the lack of energy in the air afterward and the lack of spirit activity over the following days.
There was one time when we had so many ghosts in the house that I decided to work with Kiani on visualizing a gigantic, white archway of light, right in the center of the house! Then I asked our spirit guides and angels to do the rest, while we focused on the visual of the doorway. It was quite an experience! I don’t think I’ve had had goosebumps that much in my life! When we finished, the house felt empty and quiet and stayed that way for a couple weeks.
