How To Un-Haunt An iPhone
I love your site, and I’ve got a weird and possible karmic scenario that I hope could be an ‘Ask Mystic’.
Pre-eclipse, an old friend of mine overdosed and passed away whilst holidaying in Cambodia- let’s call him Sag. I’d known him since 1999, we shared science fiction, philosophical debates, drunken red wine fueled sex that we agreed shouldn’t be repeated. Around 2012 we lived together, he was in a bad place, he had a work accident, got on opioids, overdosed three times, got CPR from me twice and my boyfriend once. I fractured his ribs the first time, I thought I wasn’t strong enough.
I helped him go through detox once, but he kicked me out for cooking with one of his eggs (yes, after I saved his life, he couldn’t spare an egg). So I left and found a drama free flat and never talked to him again.
And I don’t feel bad about that. I didn’t go to his funeral- and I don’t feel bad about that either. I cannot handle platitudes and cliche’s when a rib I fractured in resuscitation is now ashes.
And now I am very slightly haunted. My Sun is in Taurus with Pisces Rising. I’m a massage therapist. I choose calming world music to work to. Three times last week (at 4.20pm!), my world music changed to Pearl Jam “Devils Bed’!! Seriously wtf. Also, I don’t have this Pearl Jam album uploaded. And my long term Scorpio lover (who Sag held in distain, perhaps envied) dreamed that he was being chased up a hill by Sag, that he had a cat of nine tails with extendable burrs and was trying to kill him, the weapon was apparently quite vivid.
So other than smudging sage everywhere, I would love any suggestions for protection, can one protect IPhones from haunting?!
Thanks for the safe space to spill such crazy intense situations! I certainly don’t share them elsewhere!
Dear Haunted Bull,
Now this is a classic Eclipse Zone communique. And you know what? I can practically pick up on these emanations from here. It’s such a sad tale. Opoids are the devil, seriously. This is in part a Pluto in Capricorn story, of how governments and lawmakers have failed – are failing – their people. It began with Neptune in Capricorn in the Nineties: the ‘religion’, the delusion of economic rationalism. That everything – even water and shelter – is to be a market. And now Pluto in Capricorn is testing the validity of this ideal.
But back to the haunting. If you think about it, digital is the perfect medium for ghosts. It is pulses of light. Any entity can hitch a ride on one. I believe that we become at-one with the galaxy and starlight between lives, plants too. Who knows how it works exactly?
Maybe we get to soar around as birds for a bit. I think the Ancient Egyptians believed that. But people who pass in such a way, getting out of it and not able to get back ‘in it’, crossing dimensions by mistake, forgetting he had to breathe may of course be more prone to hang around. We call it haunting but he is probably just trying to finish a sentence. Admittedly an angry one.
So my suggestions: restart your iPhone – it works for everything else, seriously. Why not ghosts? Secondly, if you are up for it, you can sit in a circle of (quality) salt this next Dark Moon and connect with him. Acknowledge the good rapport you shared and that you are sorry it did not happen differently for him. But that he needs to go, towards the light, to move on.
Thirdly, if you don’t want to do this, fine – i get it. Dealing with addicted people is painful and enervating. The drugs vamp the Qi of the user and anyone around them. Your compassion may be burned out by now. If that’s the case, make sure you don’t have some object of his still tying you to him. It’s a good time to do a power purge anyway. The Dark Moon before a Solar Eclipse in Leo = super potent. See the Scheduler for the times.
If it’s really revving up, get a space-clearer/ghost-buster in – I know a fantastic one and it can be an extremely good investment. And in the meantime, i think that for circumstances like this (Neptunian), Metal is a better clearer than sage. Tibetan Bells, cymbals or even just bang a saucepan around. It’s the metallic element that counts. Also, i think that the Green Tara mantra or the Shield of Brigid are both enormously protective.
What does everyone else think?
