How To Protect Yourself From Ghosts

So you want to protect yourself from ghosts. How do you do that? There are many forms of spiritual and physical protection that you can turn to.

Are you haunted by ghosts? Do you see apparitions everywhere you go? Do you hear voices talking to you?

There are many things that go bump in the night, but ghosts are among the most terrifying. They haunt us, and we don’t understand why. But one thing’s for sure – they’re real!

I’ve spent years researching the paranormal and studying how we perceive reality. In this article, I’m going to share with you everything I learned about protecting yourself and your home from ghosts and hauntings.

Spiritual Protection

Spiritual protection isn’t just for devoutly religious people. If you’re dealing with ghosts and spirits, you need to be aware of the different non-physical ways to get them to leave you alone.


Prayer is a way of asking God, the gods, spirits, ancestors, or the universe to help you. Prayer is a powerful tool because it allows you to connect with something bigger than yourself. It also helps you to focus on what you really want, instead of what you think you should have.

In my experience, prayer works best when you pray for specific intentions. For example, if you want to rid your house of ghosts, then you might ask God to remove any negative energy that may be lingering there. You could also ask Him to give you strength so that you can face whatever challenges come your way.

You can use prayers like these as a guide to create your own personalized prayers. The more detailed your prayers are, the better.

Magical Wards

Pentacles, incense, candles, crystals, herbs, oils, and other magical objects all work together to keep ghosts away. These items are often used in rituals and spells to ward off evil spirits.

Wearing protective amulets and talismans is another great way to protect yourself from ghosts and spirits.

If you find yourself being followed by a ghost, imagine a bright light shining between you and the entity, making him disappear. Or, if you are being haunted by a spirit, envision a giant hand reaching toward you to push the spirit back.


A sigil is an symbol that has been charged with an intent. Sigils have been carved into houses for centuries. They have been used to ward off monsters, cryptids, ghosts, and evil spirits.

Carving a sigil or even just a protective pentagram into your home as soon as you buy it will ensure your years living there will be ghost free and safe.

Dancing And Music

Ecstatic dancing and music build up the spiritual energy around us. When the house is filled with positive spiritual energy, negative entities can’t stick around.

Dancing in groups creates a positive atmosphere where everyone feels free to express their emotions. Music adds rhythm and harmony, creating a perfect environment for dancing. It helps to release pent-up emotional energy that might attract negative entities.

Blessing The Home

When you bless your home, you’re asking for blessings on your family. You’re asking for protection from any harm that may come their way.

You can bless your home by saying prayers over it. You can use incense, oil, and other things to create a sacred atmosphere.

Cleanse Your Space Often

If you live in a haunted place, you’ll probably notice that the spirit world doesn’t seem to respect boundaries. This means that you won’t always feel safe in your own space.

To make sure that you’re protected, cleanse your space regularly. Use sage (ethically harvested), salt, holy water, and other cleansing tools to purify your home.

Asking For Divine Help

Sometimes, you need to call upon divine forces to help you. Ask for guidance, protection, healing, and anything else that you need.

In order to ask for divine aid, you should use words like “help me,” “protect me,” ” heal me,” or “guide me.” Then, visualize a light source (sun, star, etc.) above you, and imagine that the light enters into your body, fills it completely, and then leaves again. Repeat this process three times.

Physical Protection

These physical items blend magic and the material world to keep your spaces safe from ghosts.

These are simple charms created using everyday objects such as candles, stones, herbs, etc. They can protect your space from ghosts and help you stay healthy. You might use them to cleanse your space after a ghostly encounter.

Most spirits HATE iron. In folklore, iron is said to protect from fairies, ghosts, and other spiritual entities. When you’re in a haunted area, carry something made of pure iron to keep yourself safe.

Iron is also important in many traditional folk customs. For instance, in some regions, iron rings are hung above doorways to prevent witches from entering a dwelling. To further block evil spirits from entering a home, people hang iron horseshoes outside front doors.
