Attachments, Trauma & Ghosts OH MY!

Updated: Jul 13, 2020

"Dissociation is the essence of trauma. The overwhelming experience is split off and fragmented, so that the emotions, sounds, images, thoughts and physical sensations related to the trauma take on a life of their own" Bessel Van Der Kolk MD from The Body Keeps the Score

Since Bessel Van Der Kolk was writing from a clinical perspective, I believe that when he's referencing the "emotions, sounds, images, thoughts....taking on a life of their own" that he's talking about the intrusive nature of the memories made from a traumatic event, and how they impact a persons NOW life. Which is 100% correct. But now I'd like you to read the quote again and think about it from an energetic standpoint... "thoughts and physical sensations related to the trauma take on a life of their own" doesn't that sound like what happens with residual, and spirit energies?

We learned early on that trauma causes a soul to fractal off into different "pieces" its a coping mechanism. Those pieces ideally would be integrated back into the self, with time and intentional effort to self reflect. However, we are living in an age where proper attention has not been payed to our emotional body, and we were never taught how to heal & integrate stress trauma properly. Not by our parents, or medical providers, or school fact chances are before someone in the mental health field even would attempt to help someone with their trauma a great deal of damage has already been done to the system. There's no blame in that statement either, we just didn't know as a collective humanity. Now that we know, it's important that we create awareness and cultivate a culture of trauma informed care providers for our younger generations.

So, trauma causes a soul to fractal off. That fractal is energy, which has a point of attraction that attracts other energy, and that is how a fractal grows into something that up to this point, most people have looked at as "paranormal" Because the fractal IS the negative energy broken off of a soul, the point of attraction for that fractal will hold a lower vibrational frequency, attracting other lower vibrational 'things' in its field, and grow it into something larger (quantity wise) and with enough time something larger quality wise too. Eventually a fractal can gather enough energy to physically move things, and manifest sounds, images and emotions.

Now notice that earlier I said " Because the fractal IS the negative energy broken off of a soul, the point of attraction for that fractal will hold a lower vibrational frequency, attracting other lower vibrational 'things' in its field" lets talk about "things" and why I put it in parenthesis... there are things, energies in this world that are malevolent. Energetic beings that are simply trying to survive, and are trying to catch a free ride so to speak, energetically, wherever they can. This is one of the ways people can end up with what metaphysical folks usually call an "attachment" meaning that this low vibrational cloud of energy stays with the person until the person raises their vibrational frequency (which is super difficult when you have something sucking off your life force) or they have it energetically removed by a healer of some sort. The word attachment brings to mind a whole lot of scary ideas for people, but it is not always an outside energy attaching to a human. And it Is not always exorcist level drama. AND, We can also attach to ourselves!

If you are a trauma survivor, and you give TOO MUCH attention to your illnesses (whether they are mental or physical) you can literally GROW your fractal into an attachment. This is actually pretty common. In fact spirit told us once (in 2017) that 80% of the population of planet Earth walk around with some sort of attachment. These fractaled off pieces of yourself are simply in need of being reintegrated back into your soul. Loved, and given positive attention & intention from you to reunite. I am specific about the date of this statistic, because this number is on its way down as our planet goes through ascension. (if you don't know what ascension is please see our article here : Ascension of the planet simply wont allow these lower vibrational beings to exist. Making NEW attachments more rare, and putting us healers all on "clean up duty" for the duration of the ascension cycle.

Below, I'm going to cover a few attachments or ghostly things and then briefly explain how they tie to trauma. Remember that you must be an energetic match before any other energy attaches to you.

Poltergeist : When a human has fractured unprocessed trauma and usually some highly intuitive skills that they may or may not know about. The energy can grow into something that does nuisance things like opening and shutting doors, drawers etc, moving objects, that is infact the forte of a poltergeist. (There are other ways a poltergeist can be created, but for purposes of this article, we are focused on the trauma aspect )

Waywards: These are wandering fractals of souls also attracted to your incarnated light and looking for energy. you must again be a vibrational match.

Ghosts: ghosts are usually beings so effected by trauma in this life they simple cannot "let go" enough to fully go into their transition and a fractal of them hangs around here, learning to attach to an incarnated beings light. Now knowing what we have talked about already, you can assume then that this fractal of them that stays behind is the traumatized, low vibrational piece of them which I think is why ghosts get a bad wrap. They are only scary because we don't understand them. (also, side note, scaring the incarnated being puts off more energy for the ghostie to eat up. Its not personal, just survival)

Attachment to other :

Subcategory - from another life, can be self or another soul but either way not incarnated currently.

Sometimes a client has an attachment from another life. There can be lingering soul contracts with so much (you guessed it) trauma that it makes an imprint, and carries over lifetimes. That is pain beyond pain. The same thing can happen with the energy force that is you in another existence as well. The pain is SO intense, so traumatic that it carries over to this incarnation.

Subcategory - from low vibrational non human beings

When you as a human have a lower vibrational frequency (generally from living in an emotionally low place due to trauma of some sort) low vibrational non human entities get attracted to your incarnated light as a potential energy source.

Attachment to self:

God gave us the ability to be creators. That means our thoughts and words hold a tremendous amount of creational power. (not sure creational is a word LOL) Propagated by negative thoughts this is when you create an attachment that is literally made out of a cluster of negative thoughts bundled together Or you have experienced so much trauma you are experiencing so much shame you turn it inward, onto yourself. A lot of humans are actually stuck here. It becomes a cycle of pain; negative thoughts produce negative experiences, produce more negative thoughts and more negative experiences. The attachment grows and it becomes nearly impossible for the client to detect, because they just believe they are depressed or have anxiety or adhd or insomnia or the like.


Real, but more rare because they must be summoned via darker intentions, and even these beings must go when commanded. But they go kicking and screaming.

We call them and deal with attachments as an Emotional Energy exchange. Because spirit has explained to us that the "cords" that bind these attachments to us are actually made of chemicals that are produced by our emotions that then form a neural pathway. All of this can be resolved energetically with 100% success. Then begins the chore of convincing your physical vessel that the attachment is cleared.. I'd like to tell you the story of Jane*.

Jane* was referred to us by another client of ours She was experiencing some very unusual "hauntings" she called them in her home in another state out east. Originally, she explained that she was experiencing things moving in her home, strange noises, and the feeling that someone was watching her all the time. The most disturbing aspect was the inability to sleep due to being violated sexually by an energetic force. Jane* had come up with several coping mechanisms, but still couldn't sleep and was becoming increasingly agitated, ill, and underperforming at work. After assessing Jane's* energy, we noted that Jane had an attachment of a particularly nasty sort. Jane was a church going girl, did not use drugs or alcohol She had a recent divorce, and had recently moved into a 4 plex . Up to this point she explained she had the "usual amount of trauma for a woman my age" what she meant was rough, degrading parents who raised her the way they were raised . In a children- should -be- seen- and -not- heard religious household. She had a job she loved, but it was stressful . Over the last 6 months living in the duplex the activity increased and was starting to follow her to work. She finally reached out for help. When I was in Jane's energy space, I noticed that she had an attachment. It was very strong and forthcoming with information. His presence on her was due to a Rastafarian curse placed on the descendants of Janes great - Grandfather! Once Jane experienced her divorce, and was living in the 4 plex with some low vibrational humans, Jane became a vibratory match to him and he latched on her. This was a difficult but 100% effective removal. Jane needed to then do the follow up work and cleanse her home, and bed which she did not do, an the residual energy came back and grew so much it could re attach to her, and we had to do another removal!

Jane became a vibrational match to the old family curse because of the traumas she experienced. It was not an automatic thing that was going to happen. She had to be a match. She neglected to do the environmental cleansing, and we also had to back up and spend more time convincing Jane's physical vessel that it could live without the attachment.

Jane is fine now, after having cleansed her home appropriately after the removal, and some healing work on herself she has been "haunt free" for over a year!

So how do you know if you have an "attachment"? (Emotional Energy Exchange) here are some commonly reported symptoms or complaints of a person with an attachment..

Feeling chronically tired and depleted of energy,Suffering mood swings and/or impulsive behavior,Unexplained bursts of anger, sadness, or emotion,Hearing inner voices telling you things or making negative comments,A feeling that ‘this isn’t me’ , Problems with addictions of all kinds,Poor memory, inability to focus, or confusion more than is normal, A sudden onset of anxiety or depression or panic attacks, All of a sudden pets are wary of you or shy away — sometimes growling, A sudden onset of physical problems with no apparent cause –especially around the upper back and neck Unexplained fears and phobias , Disturbing nightmares or strange faces in dreams, Feelings of being watched or unexplained sensations such as a distortion of space and time, Feelings of unease, cold areas in your home or office, or a sense of another presence when nobody else is around

Please know that is not as scary as TV & movies have led us to believe! It is easily dissolved and your normal life can return . If you find out you have an attachment, or suspect you have an attachment, we can understand you might have some tough feelings about this. It is EXTREMELY important for you to remember YOU are in charge here. and you can command these to go. if you feel like you may have an attachment, and If you would like help, please just send us an email @
