Paranormal Activity in Relation to Interpersonal Issues

Back on Thursday the 11th I got a phone call from a lady who had a full-blown poltergeist haunting that was clearly making her miserable… she initially called looking for my shop, and I explained the nature of my business. Sharon found my website and wanted a Defunker.  I asked what was going on and it turned out that she was in distress, wasn’t getting any sleep because an entity kept trying to rape her repeatedly. It was also effecting her ability to handle basic business. She had run through her unemployment compensation and was having trouble getting employment for the first time in her life.

This had been going on for some months “beginning last March” and she was essentially at the end of her rope. She had brought in a total of four different clergy, including her religious denomination’s bishop, for a total of three visits… the third time, they told her that this was coming from within her and they couldn’t do anything about it… they abandoned her saying that she was wigging out because of the stress of being unemployed. She was devastated at this abandonment. I told her that I wasn’t really surprised. I sent her the Joray “White Light” symbol and my “Fat-Free Spirituality” PDF book to read so she could “get it for herself”. I gave her instructions to print out the symbol and slap it anywhere, particularly any “in-between” areas and behind every possible picture on the walls, under the bed and so forth to grid the place.

On Saturday the 13th I went to handle the cleansing of her apartment on Richmond. It was hot out… in the 90s. The grass was getting parched. I asked her lots of questions about how things had gotten to where they are. Of course there were some layers involved. I got that there were no real geopathic difficulties in that particular building, but that there were more than likely some in the apartment complex and surrounding area… and that could make a difference. The longer

One situation that figured prominently was that she had worked in an office that had a very religious back-stabber that was likely doing her own version of energy work to slam anyone that posed a threat to her. Sharon was fired from that job for the first time in her life. Adding insult to injury, the recruiter that had placed her was now aloof and not really trying to assist her any more after so many years.  What happened? Sharon really felt like she had been severely interfered with by this woman.

I started by dropping a pair of Rick’s special energy tools in the center of the living room… a labyrinth disk featuring all of the 72 names of God, with the banishing side up, placed on top of a Harmony Board. I called in my angels and asked for assistance in taking this entity up into God’s Light. I lit a smudge stick, cracked the front door, and began walking around the small apartment, working from the back forwards and around every area, talking to the ghost and selling it into going into the Light. Following that, I took my pouch of “medicine mix” and performed the Tobacco Ceremony indoors, then took my Ceremony outdoors to permanently anchor God’s Light to the whole building. In a building with eight apartments, I just made it tough for anyone or anything that was not working for God’s Light to hang around that building. I checked my work with a pendulum. Sharon had laid down on her bed while I was working the outside… and was pleased that this was the first time that she hadn’t been molested in a long time. I checked to make sure the entity was indeed gone… it was.

When I finished that, I found a small stool and a little table and set up my SpaceBoard to quickly clack out any debris, entrainment, cords or whatever that might be stuck on Sharon. She felt very calm and relaxed afterward. I spent some time coaching her on the use of God’s White Light and how to use God’s Metallic Gold Light to defend herself. I also told Sharon how to send God’s Love & Light to the recruiter with a gift tag, and filling her office with that spectrum of energy as if she is physically in that office, even though she is only on the phone. Sharon isn’t one of those people who is in the victim mentality. She is accustomed to focusing on what she wants to create and seeing things fall into place because of her focus. This whole thing with the ghost and the backstabbing woman putting the whammy on her was simply and completely outside of her experience to date.

Sharon picked out a small Defunker I and also purchased a “Prosperity Ball” and an “Absolute Truth Ball”, and paid me for my time and a little tip besides.

I e-mailed on Monday to ask how everything was, and the next day I received an e-mail saying: “I have not gotten rid of the spirit yet. Saturday night I had an unexpected major attack, Sunday night I had a mild attack, last night I had a mild attack. I guess I’ll just continue to pray.”

I called and coached her on handling things. She used the Defunker to ward the critter off but was still under attack. I told her she needed to have that “Absolute Truth Ball” with her in bed to provide a clean field all the way around her as she slept. I pointed her to some of the passages in the PDF book I had sent her and went over it with her. I told her that I would do some absentia work on her place that evening.

I tuned in and, yes the previous ghost really was gone, but another different one had come in to take its place… kind of like getting rid of a bad boyfriend, but still having to deal with his jerk friends afterwards. This particular entity had apparently been waiting on the sidelines for an opening.

For good measure, I consulted with a psychic friend who tuned in and confirmed this, saying that these two ghosts had followed her from several lifetimes back, and that I needed to erase what she called a “vapor trail” from that other abusive ghost that was still attached to Sharon, and probably brought this one in, and possible another one after this one leaves. Kind of like how an ex-heroine addict can smell heroine on another person. This second ghost was not the least bit comfortable being in that building since I had done Ceremony to anchor God’s Light to the place, but it apparently had nowhere else to go. I did the energy work that evening, filling the whole apartment with God’s White Light.

She called saying that it bothered her some more, but it was greatly diminished as to be more of a nuisance. She called the problem at 95% corrected. I told her that this is really more of a good thing for her, because she is learning how to deal with these things on her own. The whole experience is ultimately empowering and she can take the knowledge with her anywhere.

Later on the 26th she reported that she is doing well. Sharon is keeping the back-stabber boxed in God’s Gold Light to limit any further interference, and Sharon’s recruiter is pleased to be working with her once again and is beating the bushes for other assignments. She’ll be just fine.

Proper Smudging Technique for Clearings

I just noticed that, even though I have always included instructions on how to do a proper Tobacco Ceremony on my assorted blogs and my electronic books, I somehow forgot to include these important instructions on my blogsite for easy access.

If you are one of a score or more of people who have contacted me asking for help in dealing with the negative side of the paranormal, I have likely either instructed you by e-mail, coaching you over the phone, or I just sent you the PDF of my e-book, “Fat-Free Spirituality” so you could get it for yourself.  I’d rather coach people to do it for themselves, thereby empowering them to help others. The ol’ spoon-feeding syndrome isn’t good for the collective consciousness.

When the typical person comes to the realization that they really are being haunted, it is normal to panic. So much of so-called “western civilization” is geared around denial of the spirit world and higher dimensions. Most people start their search for paranormal help by reaching out to clergy only to be rebuffed or told to find a psychiatrist… and it is a sobering experience after a lifetime of mainstream religious indoctrination to realize that the support isn’t a two-way street. The next thing most people do nowadays is to get on the internet… which is where most people find me. Yes, I do get referrals from members of various friends and paranormal research groups. I prefer to empower people through instruction, but some folks are too scared to attempt the D.I.Y. approach, at which point I will offer to do a cleansing, whether by remote or in person, for a modest fee.

In getting the background on the haunting activity, I usually tune in and check for the presence of geopathic phenomena, and I always ask whether there is use of prescription medications, alcohol or pot in the household.

The first stage of clearing is e-mailing the person the “White Light” symbol from the Joray tradition, to print out on both paper or on Avery label stock for them grid their house by slapping the symbol to the ceilings of closets, behind every picture on the walls, and preferably stapled to the inside of the roof facing down into the house from the attic. The symbol takes the house to a higher court and typically makes any ghosts very uncomfortable… it is serving them “notice of eviction”.

The next thing to do is prepare to “smudge”, which is a Native American technique. You need a sage and cedar smudge stick for this. If you can’t find one of these locally, you can either order them on-line or from me. You will need to hold something underneath that smudge stick so you don’t spread embers as you walk through the house… most use an abalone shell, but a salad plate with work perfectly.

Smudging is typically my second stage of clearing. Once you have the basic implements ready, you crack open the front door, make a prayer (out loud) invoking your angels and ascended masters to come in and assist you, then light the cedar and sage smudge stick.  You begin by going to the back of the house smudging each room in a clockwise circle, while talking to the ghosts. Tell the ghosts that this is your home and that they have to leave it, preferably to go into the Light since they are no longer in physical form. Keep smudging and talking until you’ve chased them out the front door. In multi-level houses the smudging must be repeated on each floor, again, working from the back of the house forward until they are chased out the front door. It is especially important to point out that ghosts like to hide in the in-between places such as attics, air conditioning intake vents, stairways and closets, so these must also be smudged. When you are done, close the front door and “seal” that door by smudging it in a clockwise motion. All of these actions must be done with focused INTENT. More advanced spiritual practitioners will talk with such entities and then walk them into the Light to make sure they get there.

The third stage of clearing is doing “Tobacco Ceremony” both outside and inside the house. I prefer doing outside first because it has a pressure cooker effect.

The fourth stage of clearing is to do an energy clearing on anyone in the household. Any etheric cords must be cut, their energy field must be cleansed, and any chakras have to be unblocked. The first thing that most poltergeists do is “slime” people’s head chakras to keep them from realizing the ghosts are there.

How to Get Rid of a TransDimensional

I was recently asked, “How do you deal with a globby-looking ghost?” 

       I reckon it is “the times” we are in.  In the past 3 weeks I have talked 3 different people through the process of getting rid of transdimensional aliens (TDs).  They’re more common than you think.  Stuart Wilde has been writing about the on his website for years, and his assessments and techniques have been holding up under scrutiny.  About every other request for assistance in dealing with paranormal phenomena is because of TDs.

 You have an entity hanging out in your house… how do you tell what it is? 

       Ghosts are stupid.  They are bits of consciousness left behind by humans who have died.  Some know they have died and some don’t.  Tell-tale signs include the standard cold spots or cold rooms that cannot be accounted for by weather or air-conditioning.  Ghosts typically will not make themselves scarce when you bring in paranormal investigators, if anything, they will come out to play.  You can walk a ghost into the Light.  You can easily use a whole string of subtle energy tools to either make them uncomfortable or to convince them to go into the Light.  A ghost will dirty up your electrical field and eventually get you sick because your immune and nervous system cannot handle that kind of stress. Ghosts are usually easy to get rid of by doing Ceremony to anchor divine Light to the place so they don’t want to hang around.  Ghosts will also clear off if you install a labyrinth on the property, or smudge a room with cedar/sage.

       TDs are IN PHYSICAL, they are not dead and are not ghosts.  They are aliens, but they are on a higher dimensional frequency, so they are often mistaken for ghosts or demons because they often look diaphanous.  You will typically know them because they are absolutely attracted to people who either wallow in or project a lot of negative emotions… fear, anger, hatred, envy, or the victim mentality.  They will typically make themselves scarce if you bring in paranormal investigators, because they don’t want to be found out.  In several instances, the aliens actually parked a whole space ship overlaying the same space as a house, so that the living room of the house might be the sleeping quarters, or the house’s bedroom might be in engineering.  TDs will hang out and pester Lightworkers who are not 100% up-and-running, or indigo / crystal children (the very advanced psychic kids that are coming in these days), attempting to stall their development.  They can implant, kidnap, or can simply sap a person’s energy and leave them feeling listless.  The TDs’ usual thing is to talk deep into your mind and give you nasty ideas in such a way that you think the ideas are yours.  They really like to jack with you in your sleep.  If you’ve ever wondered why people will offer you help and support one day and then they’re mad at you the next day, then the TDs are probably working on that person.  Several people I’ve talked to said that the TDs tried to convince them that they were spirit guides or angels.  You’ll know the difference by how you feel when they’re around… they usually sap your energy and fill you with dread and fear.  

       According to Stuart Wilde, if you are under attack by TDs, the way to break their grip is to cross your eyes and get busy manifesting the Gold Light “Cosmic Condom”.  Yoga makes one vulnerable to their attacks, especially women, because the postures leave the root chakra open to invasion.  Most people see these in their threshold form as a globby-looking nasty yellowish orb that usually floats at about waist level, and hardly ever higher than shoulder level.  People that can see past that level of perception will see a very tall, scary skeleton-like ghoul.  According to Wilde, the TDs are actually controlling the Bush regime, Britain’s royal family, and most of the industrial-military complex… but worry not, they’re all on their way out.  The TDs are basically the forces of darkness made manifest. None of the TDs are nice, at least, not the ones we’re talking about here anyway.  The good ones tend to stand guard duty, chase the bad ones off, and generally try to keep from interfering with us earthlings, they want us to make our own decisions as to whether we’re working for the Light or not. 

 Okay, so how do you get rid of the TDs? 

      The first thing you have to do is wrap your head around the concept that they are in physical and start regarding them as punk vandals and vagrants that have moved into your house without your permission.  They don’t like for you to know they are in physical, because they figure they can hang out and jack with you longer if you think they are ghosts.  They are underhanded and like to play cat-and-mouse games. 

       You also have to get completely out of fear as they FEED on it.  If they think they have you scared, you will never shake them off.  I know one woman in Beaumont that wouldn’t get out of fear, and wouldn’t get out of the victim mentality, and the aliens that parked their ship over her house followed her to an apartment after she sold her house in an effort to get away from them.  The TDs wouldn’t let her get any sleep, and the sleep deprivation made her so out of it that she had a raging urogenital infection and didn’t have enough sense to go to a doctor… she thought she was being raped 24/7 by the TDs.  They’re still following her… across the country… and both her mental and physical health are failing. 

       Empower yourself.  Start by putting on the ol’ “cosmic condom”.  Bring in God’s metallic Gold Light into your body through the top of your head, then fill up your body, then spill the excess Gold Light out through your chakras and fill up your aura all the way… 8 feet out… and program all that to stay there.  It is impermeable armor.  You won’t believe how effective it really is.

      Next, you box your TD in God’s Metallic Gold Light so he stews in his own juice.  You can fill the box with God’s cleansing Love and White Light to really make the critter uncomfortable.  They don’t like love or any of that kind of nice stuff. 

      Then you call the critter out, with the box of divine Light stuck all around him.  Stand in your power as the homeowner and head of the house.  Make sure you feel no fear or anger or hatred toward this critter.  If anything, feel amusement at the fact that the silly-ass little twerp has decided to try to pick on you.  The TD isn’t going to be happy about any of it. 

      Address the critter with the following points in about this manner: “Alright you… I know who you are and what you are! You have no right to be here. You do not have my permission to be here in my house.  I don’t want you here and you HAVE to leave right now!  But before you go, since you’ve been staying in my house, messing with me and my family, you need to pay me rent money for your stay.  You owe me $_____ (come up with a reasonably outrageous amount).  You OWE ME MONEY, so pay up NOW and then LEAVE.” 

      Most of the time, the TD will leave immediately.  I reckon it is because they don’t like the display of personal power, they don’t like the fact that you know they are in physical, and they’re not comfortable being boxed in Light, but they’re really not into the concept of getting a job so they can pay rent money.  Can you just picture an alien behind the counter at a fast-food chain asking people if they want fries with their burgers?  No, they’ll beat a hasty retreat instead. 

      A lady in California found some loose change in her driveway after the TD left her house.  She later had to chase it out of her mother’s house and her workplace.  She got plumb amused by it all, which is the correct attitude.  She taught other people how to handle it, too, thereby helping to chase the forces of darkness from a section of Southern California. 

       Another time, Dick Dixon the Reiki Bubba here in Houston, called me regarding a presence in his son’s house up in Maryland.  Maryland is known for its abundance of occultists, so it was assumed this might be a demon of some sort.  In this case, the presence was a really tall, dark shadowy looking being that had glowing red eyes and emanated evil.  Dick’s son is a strapping big guy that isn’t afraid of anything, and he and his wife have two crystal kids.  Dick described what was going on and I told him the same way to handle it.  Dealt with in true Texas Bubba fashion, the critter left immediately and there was rejoicing and a “thank-you” on my answering machine. 

       If the TD has been hanging around jacking with you for a long time, it may take a wider range of efforts to get the TD to move on.  You will probably have to get creative and experimental to come up with different techniques and methods of jacking with the TD, all of course with an attitude of fun and play (they don’t like that).  That’s where you need to try out all sorts of things to elevate the vibration of the house and grounds.  Absolutely check for and block off any geopathic or noxious rays to help cut off the TD’s potential power supply.  Try gridding your property with various stones, and performing very spiritual ceremonies to anchor Divine Light to your house.  Consider getting a series of tools geared for dealing with the situation, like those from http://www.oneforce.cc  which includes “The Orb Card”, the “Gray Disruptor Disk” and the “Bioelectronic Equalizer”.  Other possibilities include the Absolute Truth” ball from my own website, and any number of psychotronic devices on the market.  

       Whether you have ghosts or TDs, the main thing is to get out of fear, anger and all that other low-end stuff, and manage yourself and your own thought patterns.  You have to step up, take back your power and deal with the entity tête-à-tête.  If you can’t do that, you’re in for a long, hard time of it.  Begging for rescue won’t help because there are a lot of people out there that will take advantage of you and mooch all the money they can from you.  The truth of the matter is that nobody can rescue you.  You really have to do this for yourself.  Maybe that’s the core issue for the times we’re in.

       Another thing… while you can call in someone to successfully clear out ghosts and close portals/vortices, you CANNOT have someone else get rid of aliens for you.  Ghosts are general… they can come with the land or the structure, or show up attached to some item of furniture; they can surf in on some negative aspect of the global Hartmann Grid.  The aliens are specifically there to mess with you or members of your household, so it is specific to you.  You have to stand in your power and authority to confront them for what they are and demand they leave… nothing else will work. You have “grow a pair” and set yourself  free. I’ve explained this repeatedly to several paranormal researchers.

So You’ve Got An Alien Invasion…

      I’ve run into several situations in which a “resistant haunting” turned out to be aliens. No, I’m not kidding. Yes, there is a presence, or a number of presences, but just because you can’t see them doesn’t mean that they aren’t there, and doesn’t mean that they are ghosts. There are more types of life forms in the universe than we have documented proof of. The good aliens might visit, but they won’t bother you, won’t scare you, and won’t hang out very long. The bad aliens are all about sewing fear then hanging out for the harvest… these are the ones that manipulate, kidnap, implant and experiment on people.

      Ghosts are pretty simple. Most can be chased out of a room by smudging it, or can be blocked out of an area or be made uncomfortable by anchoring Divine Light to the location… with that done, ghosts can be coaxed into the Light. This approach does not work with aliens because they are PHYSICAL beings, so you cannot walk them into the Light. Doing Ceremony to anchor Light might amuse them or might get them to become more aggressive in messing with whomever it is they’ve decided to hang out with, just to see what their victim/subject will try next.

      We might occasionally be able to see some of these aliens as orbs of energy… Stuart Wilde describes these as transdimensionals, most of which are up to no good whatsoever. These transdimensionals get their kicks from speaking deep into a person’s psyche, putting thoughts into his head and making him think they are his own thoughts… the TDs spend a lot of their time messing with politicians and industrial moguls… mostly people that think they’re better than anyone else. If you can see these TDs in their true form, they’re scary-looking skeleton-like ghouls.

      In instances where several types of aliens are present, it is likely that a spaceship is parked on top of that house. A spaceship can literally occupy the same space as a house, or a whole block, because it is on a higher dimensional frequency (high 4-D). So your living room might be in the crew’s quarters, or your garage might be their cargo hold, and your neighbor’s house might be were their engineering section is. Different sections of the ship might have different aliens.

      In instances where aliens are messing with someone who is fairly spiritually evolved and “on the path”, they’re typically trying to disrupt any progress being made by that person. The aliens will try to mess with them in their sleep, keep them from meditating, scare the kids and dog, and anything else. The person “on the path” will typically start out thinking they’ve got ghosts and will be dismayed to learn that all their ghost-busting tricks aren’t working. The aliens aren’t particularly effected by smudging or anything else, and they tend to be smart enough to get scarce when any consultants are brought in. Whether or not they connect to the fact that they are dealing with aliens, the way they get rid of the interlopers is by calmly standing their ground with absolutely no fear or anger, and demanding that they leave. If they can pilot a starship, they can certainly understand you confronting them in a mature manner.

      It took a bit of explanation for one such lady, a Native-American psychic who was highly experienced in clearing ghosts. Aliens were an alien concept to her. She finally understood both what I was telling her and what she had to do:  she went to where she knew they’d be hanging out (in her upstairs hallway) and demanded that they leave the premises at once or start paying rent. They left immediately.

      In most other instances the aliens are messing with people who feed them. Most of these aliens eat base emotions… anger, hate, fear, lust, disgust, rage, judgment and anything else along those lines. Yum, yum… such tasty drama keeps the aliens coming back for more!  The aliens will manipulate everyone and everything in the house to keep the snacks coming. These people will also tend to be the ones with the severe “victim” mentality that are begging to be rescued… over and over.  People on a spiritual path don’t tend to feed these critters because they have typically been working on releasing their dramas and negativity… their salvation comes from going within to release the basis.

      One lady began attracting predators by age 16, when she attracted a control-freak military guy that tracked her across several states until she was legal to marry… then proceeded to lay all sorts of mental abuse and programming on her. She has leaches for friends, children and relatives. The aliens had her so fearful and sleep deprived that she didn’t know enough to go to a doctor for a painful urogenital infection. She thought she was being raped by the aliens 24-7. Nope, that’s her victim mentality talking. She won’t stop feeding the aliens, either. 

      Ever wonder about all those people who had been abducted over and over for years, then suddenly left alone?  Those people got to a point where they couldn’t be terrorized any more, and moved into quiet acceptance and acquiescence of the aliens. That’s when the aliens couldn’t feed off of them anymore, so they left them alone. You’ll notice that the aliens tend to bother people with less education out in the ‘burbs, rather than someone, say, on the MIT or Texas Tech campuses. Curiosity tends to override fear… the prospect of research grant money doubly so. E.T. just doesn’t hang out in the Student Union.

      There have been several cases in which a homeowner/experiencer called in some paranormal researchers to get rid of the “presences” in their house. Yes, there may have been some actual ghosts on site, and they were probably walked into the Light on the first try, but aliens tend to know when to get scarce. The paranormal researchers will continue to get calls about ongoing activity to the point where they typically have cut their losses. It doesn’t mean the experiencer is crazy or imagining things… just dragging in the wrong consultant.

      Look at it this way… if you’ve been feeding the local wildlife for a while, and some varmints have scratched a hole in the roof and moved into your attic, you have to quit feeding all of the wildlife before you can get rid of the varmints under your roof. Once the varmints have gone for the day, you can close off their access, then work on varmint-proofing your house. Chances are, if you’ve had one kind of varmint that got your goat, you’ve probably had lots of varmints on all levels all along, but you didn’t recognize it until the critters got big, obvious and destructive. This is the Universal Law of Attraction in action.  In the case of aliens, you have to figure out what attracted them to you to begin with, and release the need for that experience in all its guises all across the board. Expect to require some hypnotherapy because some of these reasons reach way back into childhood.

Native American Tobacco Ceremony

I have a wide number of applications for a special type of prayer called “Tobacco Ceremony.” The divine messenger, White Buffalo Calf Pipe Woman, brought the “Tobacco Ceremony” to us some 500 years ago. I will typically use this ceremony when clearing haunting activity.

With this prayer ceremony, I found that I can anchor light anywhere, block-in or block-out any form of energy or entity, and “clear” an area of unwanted influences. For example, I felt the energies were “off” at one psychic fair I was at. I went outside and quietly walked around the building, doing the ceremony, giving thanks and asking that anyone, energy or entity be excluded from the building if it is not “working for the Light” or if it is not there for the betterment of all. Ten minutes afterwards, two of the “psychics” quickly packed up and left. I had never thought about them, either. Interesting, huh? I know a “channeler” that can’t do readings in an area I’ve done ceremony on. What does that say about what was being channeled?

You don’t need to smoke or use a special pipe. What I do is offer a pinch of the dry herbs in each direction. You may also choose to burn the herbs on a charcoal to offer the smoke. I carry a pouch filled with a generic mixture of tobacco, sage, cedar and sweetgrass, which is symbolic of the four directions. Other tribes use other herbs.

Let’s do it, shall we? Place yourself in a state of grace. Begin with an open prayer/invocation, and then start by facing EAST (or what you perceive as east), which is the start of the Medicine Wheel, holding a nice little handful of your herbs. Raise your hand offering the herbs, and begin by addressing the “Grandparents of the East”. The “Grandparents” referred to in this ceremony, includes ancestors, ascended masters, angels and the spiritual hierarchy of the planet. Give thanks to the Grandparents for all of their assistance, offer your handful of herbs and ask them for their assistance once again (insert request here), thank them in advance for their help and drop a pinch of the herbs in their direction. Do this exactly the same way facing SOUTH addressing the “Grandparents of the South”, then WEST, then NORTH. Then kneel to address the EARTH MOTHER beneath your feet, making sure to thank her for feeding you and giving you a place to live, and offer the herbs and your special request and thanks. Then stand again and talk to SKY FATHER (God, Creator, Wakan-Tanka, etc.) offering herbs, thanks, your request, and thanks in advance for this assistance, and dropping some dry herbs. Any breeze will carry the herbs to where they need to go. It is done. Give thanks. Whatever you asked for is on its way if your intent was correct and pure. This is the short form. White Buffalo Calf Pipe Woman’s version is considerably more involved.

If you are a smoker, you can do this ceremony very casually and even surreptitiously. Light up a fresh cigarette, face east, offer the smoke from your hand as you pray, then take a deep draught and mentally exhale the prayers as you blow the smoke carrying your prayers up to the Grandparents of each direction as described above. Works just fine. It’s the intent that matters.

I will remind you of the importance of Universal Law when doing “ceremony”. Prayer, especially a focused prayer like this, is a powerful form of thought/energy transmission. You will get back that energy multiplied in accordance with your intent in putting the energy out to begin with. Some people say it is multiplied three times, but in truth there is no ceiling on the multiplication aspect. So, for example, if you pray for advancement on your job, ask that it be done in harmony and for the best and highest good of all concerned… not just yourself. I know one lady that did ceremony to get a promotion, and got it, but because it was not done in a harmonious way, she was fired a month later. You can do ceremony to attract a new love to your life, by putting your “spec sheet” out in this prayer ceremony, but you cannot manipluate any person in particular as that will backlash on you. You get the idea.
