Spirit Release: A Lost Prospector Stumbles on a Way Home

It’s rare that I do Spirit Release anymore, but I recently helped a longtime client clear an intrusive spirit that was affecting her. It was such a classic case of how intrusive energies can influence us, and it ended up being so amusing in so many ways, that I’ve decided to share the story.

When my client contacted me, she had been feeling out of sorts for three weeks. She wrote: “I have found that I am out of energy and totally not myself. I can’t bring myself to pray and this feels like something seriously deep rooted, not just something I don’t feel like doing for that one day. I am seriously not able to concentrate, I feel like I am looking out from someone else’s eyes, and my mood is not my own.”

What the client shared with me are telltale signs of intrusive energy:

  1. A distinct sensation of feeling “not oneself”
  2. Feeling like you are regarding the world through someone else’s eyes
  3. Feeling uncharacteristically tired and heavy
  4. Knowing that your mood or emotional reaction is not your own

She was right to contact me. It turns out there were other symptoms too, that came up later.

When I tuned in energetically, I saw that a clearing would be helpful to her, but I received her request at the end of the day and I was too tired to help her right then. To give her some relief until I could return to the work the next morning, I moved the most challenging energy away from her field and contained it.

In the morning when I reconnected, I saw a dejected male spirit, who himself had been carrying some dark energy (heavy, negative, sometimes powerful and destructive intrusive energy that can influence attitude and behavior). This dark energy is what I had separated from him and from her the evening before.

I understood that the name of the spirit I was meeting was Bog Gordon. Bog. This was nickname that made complete sense to me the more I spent time with him and got to know him.

This spirit had died during the years of California gold prospecting. This was an impression that came from what he was wearing and carrying, where he connected with my client, and a general inexplicable knowing that comes from spiritual connection of this nature. He was unwashed with ragged clothes and weathered skin, and had a mane of matted black hair. He looked like he had had a hard go of it, in life and after. He was an unhappy fellow. He felt a bit broken by the world and stuck.

I got the sense that this spirit had stumbled into my client’s energy field by accident, and once he was there, he had the sudden and unexpected sensation of feeling alive again. It was a surprise to him that he could connect with a living person, which is interesting, because he had been here on Earth after death for a long time. I felt deeply the year 1849 as the year of his death.

Bog was tired, and that tired energy did carry over to my client, but I also felt that his energy was just so different than hers that it was very draining for her. He recently had started to get frustrated with her for being weary and not wanting to do much anymore. He had no idea that it was actually his presence that was making her feel so exhausted. His foul mood significantly influenced her and became her foul mood.

When I joined him, he leapt up into my presence and immediately started demanding that I give him his power back. He got so close that it actually made me laugh. (Imagine being with a phrenetic person on a Zoom call who brings his face so close to the camera and moves around so erratically that all you see on your screen are close-ups of his mouth, his nose, one eye, the other eye. Think of how you might react. For some, maybe it would have been frightening. Sympathizing with his desperation, I just calmly watched him and let him speak to release all that pent up energy until he was done.) The power to which he was referring was the energy that I had disconnected from him and set aside the night before. He felt stripped of his influence because he had come to believe that that energy was all his own. It was not. He still had all that had ever been his, he just didn’t know it.

I comforted him by talking to him and wrapping him in the energy of love. At first, he wanted none of it. He was cranky and demanding, still wanting his “power” back. I had a very distinct vision that when I removed the dark energy from him the night before, he felt so wronged and frustrated that he threw down the pick ax he was carrying in a tantrum and slumped into a petulant whine-of-a-posture — arms crossed, bottom lip out. This, too, I found so funny, watching it all unfold. To his thinking, this poor guy just couldn’t catch a break. In reality, though, he had had a choice all the way along his journey to choose his responses and to make decisions that would have significantly altered his perception. He was stuck in the victim happy place. He had made himself miserable.

By the time I invited his Spirit Guide to come join us to escort him back to Spirit Realm, he was ready to go and he moved on easily. Then I turned to the energy that I had separated from him the night before and sent that back to Source as well, all in love.

When I was finished with my work, I contacted my client to tell her she was all clear. She told me that right after I had compartmentalized the dark energy the night before, she felt a sudden, sharp, piquing pain on the upper left side of her head. After that, she felt clear-eyed and able to function again. She told me that when that happened, she felt a distinct and inexplicable need to giggle, which she did, crying out through her laughter, “You bastard!” We both laughed at this. That must have been when Bog had thrown down his pick in rage and had given up all hope. It seems that perhaps unconsciously, my client was somehow aware of the humor in poor Bog’s tantrum.

I explained to her my impression that Bog’s spirit guides helped him connect with her. She is very good about managing her own energy and consciously protecting her field from intrusive energies. It made no real sense that she would have an attachment given the care she takes. Because of this, it seems that there was a greater plan at work. It was time for this man to get back Home to continue his soul journey, and since he didn’t know what to do, his guides helped him connect with my client.


She said she was fine with that and was happy to help, but that what she had missed the most was praying. It had felt as if there was a fearful block against prayer, especially against her connection with Kali. Again, I laughed. Kali is the Hindu goddess of time, destruction, creation, and power. Though often misunderstood, she is always a force to be reckoned with. Upon first glance and not knowing anything about her, Kali would be intimidating at the least. More likely, she would be utterly terrifying. Everything I had learned about Bog told me that if he had come across Kali, or even the idea of her, he would have run as fast as he could in the other direction.

My client shared that when Bog was with her, she felt nothing was going to work out for her. She felt that it wasn’t even worth trying anymore. This made complete sense in getting to know the lost spirit that was with her. Bog had found no gold during his life. He had been completely unsuccessful in striking it rich. He lived a life of disappointment that turned into destitution and desperation. When he died, he was not ready to give up his search. He stayed here on Earth after his death to keep looking for gold. In the 172 years that have passed since then, Bog lost all hope whatsoever. He was truly stuck. And then he came across my client. I suspect with great hep from his guides, he stumbled into her. Then his luck changed. When she called me, Bog finally got to go Home.

My client is all well and happy again. “I feel amazing,” she wrote to me. “I have good energy and good thoughts! I can’t complain at all.”

There is one more amusing bit to this story.

“Oh my god,” she shared on the day of the clearing. “I have been snoring like crazy these last few days as well. I don’t usually snore unless I have a cold. I wonder if that will stop too!”

Again, I laughed. “There is no way that guy was not a snorer.” I told her.

The next day, I checked in. Any snoring?

“Nope,” she wrote. “No snoring at all! Ha! so fascinating! I am amazed at how much spirits can affect us!”

I love this story so much. It is a guidebook example of what can happen to us when we earthbound spirits interfere with our energy. It also goes to show that sometimes, these interactions can be true gifts to the lost or confused spirits. Ultimately, my client did Bog Gordon a genuine kindness. She helped him return to Spirit Realm to continue his soul journey. Here on Earth after death, he had been stuck. Now that he is reconnected to Source, he may heal and learn. Eventually he’ll return to Earth as someone different to continue his lessons to evolve in love.

If you feel that you are in need of spirit release for yourself, feel free to contact me. I will refer you to one of my trusted colleagues and friends who continue to regularly do this work.

The Athena Rising Podcast: My interview about dark energy and spirit attachments

The Athena Rising Podcast

I recently sat down with Dana Whitby, the host of The Athena Rising Podcast, to discuss Spirit Release, Dark Energy, and earthbound Spirit Attachments. It was an honor to be on her show and to share lots of information with her and with you about a subject that is not easy to talk about.

I came to this work after my own personal experiences with Dark Energy. It is not something that is easy to have chosen to do, but the help that I can offer is something that so many people in this world need and so I do it, humbly and with love.

I don’t know everything. I will be the first to tell you that. No human can know everything. I learn every single day, with every single client that I work with. But I believe that it is my humble approach, teamed with the energetic tools that my Guide, Metatron, has shared with me over the past several years, that help me constantly adapt to work with the different energies that are affecting us now on our combined and cumulative human journey.

At one point in this podcast, Dana asks me, “What is the most common misperception about Dark Energy?” On the spot, in the moment, my answer was that some people believe that entities like this, also known as demons or devils, should be sent to “Hell” where they belong. My answer emphasized that in all my work, I have never witnessed a spiritual Hell, a place to which souls are sent on remand as punishment for sins. There is no such place. Instead, what I see is that Hell is a choice of the soul to remain here on this plane in search of power and influence and dominion instead of returning to Source where it will always, always be welcomed in unconditional love. When I work, I work only in love, and I return these entities back to Source, where they may be welcomed in love to learn their own lessons, whatever they may be. I do not judge. And I also don’t mess around. When it’s time for them to go, I make them go.

But the bigger misperception, I think, and one that I didn’t think of at the time, is that these energies simply do not exist — that they are instead manifestations of our own shadow sides or emotions. I will not tell you what to believe, but as I say in the podcast, my work precludes faith or belief. From first-hand experience, I know that these entities do exist, and I have dedicated myself to helping people find relief first and understanding second. Because every encounter with Dark Energy, no matter how frightening or crazy-making, is ultimately a beautiful opportunity to learn and grow in love.

I invite you to listen to this podcast with an open mind and an open heart. It’s hard to talk about a subject so vast and so “out there,” and I’d like to thank Dana for the opportunity, and for being a brave messenger. My wish is that together, she and I can bring hope to many people who don’t even know right now that there’s any hope still out there for them.

There is.

Please note that this interview is not suitable for children. It also may be hard to listen to, particularly for people who have experienced sexual assault and have not yet found healing and understanding. Remember, every trigger is an opportunity for healing and growth. There is help available to you when you are ready.

You say you can clear me, but can you guarantee it?

When I tell people I clear dark energy, spirit attachments, and other intrusive energies from people, places, and things, most often I’ve already landed us on uncommon ground. It’s not something that lots of people do, and it’s not something that lots of people feel comfortable talking about in the first place. But like so many things in this material, physical world of ours — when you break both legs, for instance, or you find cockroaches and rats in your kitchen, or you’ve dropped your passport, glasses, and all your money down a 150-foot sheer crevasse in Morocco — it becomes pretty clear pretty quickly when you need some big time help.

Once in a great while, someone will reach out to me for help and then ask me “Do you guarantee this will work?”

If you hire a personal trainer, would you ask: “Do you guarantee that I will look like Jean Claude Van Damme when we’re done here?” Whether you have the genetic make-up or not, any coach or trainer worth his or her salt would answer: “That totally depends on you.”

Just as with anything spiritual, you must be part of the process. One may not purchase spiritual enlightenment or receive it as a gift from another. Similarly, when being cleared of intrusive energy, it’s really important that one takes personal responsibility to eject the energy (even in just wanting the energy gone and asking for help), to heal that which has been triggered during the energy’s presence, and to manage and protect one’s own energy moving forward.

Most people don’t ask for that money-back guarantee. They get that they play a big role in their own healing. After I clear them, they open themselves to learning how to manage their own energy so they don’t find themselves in a similar situation down the line. Every single person I’ve worked with like this has been 100% cleared of their intrusive energies.

There are four instances when I cannot — and no one else can either — clear intrusive energies from someone. It is not possible to clear intrusive energy when:

I do not have permission.

This may mean that I do not have the express consent of the person who is experiencing dark energy, which is always important, but it may also mean that Spirit is not giving me permission to proceed (even if the client really, really wants me to) because there is something, unknown to me, that is unfolding.

There is a higher personal lesson.

We make our life plans of our own free will as souls before we incarnate into each life. Life plans are powerful contracts with ourselves and others. As my Guide, Metatron, has taught me and all of us, Darkness, too, is of the light. There are times when people plan for dark energy in their lives to teach them very weighty lessons. Whether its to accelerate learning, or as a last-ditch effort to really, finally, ultimately get an important point across, I may not interfere with others’ personal lessons. In fact, I may unknowingly be a part of them. My responsibility is to always check this before I begin my work.

The person is calling the energy in.

When someone is actively calling dark energy into themselves in the name of personal power or prowess and has no intention of changing his or her practices after the clearing, I will not be given permission to clear. This beckoning of energy can be done in a variety of ways, through dark magic, rituals, incantations, or by intention. I have also seen this with people who want so very badly to be “spiritual” and to possess energetic power that even though they perhaps mean well, they refuse to protect themselves and others through ethical energy management. I see this also relatively frequently with drug addicts or heavy users.

When someone is experiencing spiritual emergence and/or emergency, her energy can be splintered, fractured, or simply cracked wide open. In this state, even though the person may not be consciously calling the energy to her, it comes. It passes through and overwhelms. Until the person finds the personal strength and wherewithal to close down and contain her energy, to bring herself back together, if you will, clearing her will be futile. In these cases, I am usually not granted permission by Spirit to proceed. In the cases where I am, I do what I can, but am clear with the person about what is happening. Other, different help may be far more beneficial to someone experiencing spiritual emergency.

The person is experiencing spiritual emergence/emergency.

I always check with Spirit, most often before I even email or call someone back, to learn if the person who is asking for help can be cleared, if I have the power to do it, and if Spirit will grant me permission to help them. If the answer is no to any of these questions, I will tell the client that I am not able to help. If they would like to know why, I will ask them permission to ask Spirit on their behalf and will share with them what I learn, in line with one or more of the four points above. If I am given permission to help, I will leave it with each person to decide whether I feel like a fit for them. It’s a personal choice. Always.

I am very good at what I do. I can say this confidently, but I also say it humbly, because every single day I learn something new. This is by design, using the meditation technique that I was taught by my guide and teacher, Metatron. He has given me the tools to learn and experience and to learn from experience, so that is what I do. I have spent years studying energies, learning how they work and why. I now teach advanced energy healers all over the world how to do this work that I do. I teach them how to learn in the doing of it. If we are not open to change and to learning as we go, we will eventually fail. This world and the energy of it and the energies in it are constantly changing so we must always adapt.

I went through my own experience with dark energy and know first-hand the experience. I do this work now to help people who are experiencing it, and in ways that no one could when I was going through it myself. I was relieved of the energy that was manipulating me, but the healer would not talk to me about it and would not answer any of my questions. I think now that is because he didn’t know the answers or was afraid of the energy. I am not afraid. And if I don’t know something, I will do my best to figure it out and share with you. If I still don’t know after having really tried to figure it out, I will tell you.

So can I guarantee that what I do will work? If you’re all in and I have clear permission from Spirit, yes. If you’re not and I don’t, no. But if it’s no, that no does not have to be a final answer. There is no end of the line. Ever. Come back to me when you are ready, and I will be here.
