Protective Spirits

Whether they are referred to as protective spirits or guardian angels, many people believe there is something out there that watches over us and protects us. 

Whether there is a religious connotation placed upon this belief or not, I find that most people I have discussed this with have at least entertained the notion that protective spirits sometimes help us.

My group has helped two clients recently that have protective spirits in residence. The first owns a shop that has several protective spirits that protect her and her store. 

When she or her daughter smell cigar smoke and then a floral scent, they know they are being warned of some danger connected to the store or themselves. 

The store was a warehouse from the early 1900s and is over two stories high. The daughter was standing on a scaffolding at the front of the store painting the exterior wall. She smelled these two scents, so she climbed down and then a strong wind blew the platform over.

The St. James Hotel in Cimarron, NewMexico was the site of many gunfights at the turn of the century. 

One man who was shot and killed in the hotel was T.J. Wright. The hotel keeps the room where he stayed and died locked to the general public because of the negative energy it pulsates. 

The St. James also has a protective spirit, “Mary Lambert,” the second wife of the man who built the hotel. 

While investigating the second floor near T. J. Wrights’ room, each of my investigators and myself individually smelled gunpowder and then Mary’s floral scent sweeping down the hall to protect us from T. J.
Mary Lambert's room
The majority of spirits I have encountered over the years have fit into this category. Some have been indifferent, some playful, but most have been positive in nature. 

I feel the reason for this is I actively seek out the positive. I do not court or waste my time with negative energy. Therefore most often, negative energy leaves me alone.

I rarely refer to negative energy as “demonic” or “evil.” 

Happy Ghost Hunting!

I always feel as if there is a man standing in my doorway of my bedroom at my apartment that I live in now and even when i lived at my parents home. It doesn't feel threatening. Could this be a spirt that is there to protect me and watch over me?

I couldn't say. I would need a lot more information before I even could take a guess. Regardless, it is good that this activity is non-threatening. Most protective spirits do something to indicate to the living that they are here to help. Has this spirit done something to help you?

I would like to get an answer on what happened to me a few years ago. I used to live in an appartment in Utah, for the few years I lived there I had noticed something strange going on. When I was alone I felt something lingering near me, I knew it was a ghost because of a sixth sense I was born with. I can't see ghosts, but I can sense when they are near. I'd always hear the flick of a lighter, when I would leave the apparent the lingering feeling would leave. When I returned it would come back, but I would feel warm, like a hug of sorts. A feeling of something sliding up my leg and up to my thigh. Never have I felt anything negative, nor did I feel like I was in danger. I would like to know what this spirit was doing.

Since you feel it is not threatening you--talk to it.
