These rules seem to mirror many cults and occult societies!
Can whole cultures really be so influenced by dead people? Can entire
communities be haunted by demons or evil spirits?
These questions opened some strange ghost stories ...
how dead people can influence businesses, organizations and cultures! A CEO
who died of a heart attack in his office above an abortion clinic. A
religion based on dead person identification. I may write some of those
stories one day.
Exorcism, Therapy & Systemic Coaching
While investigating ghost stories, I witnessed psychiatrists,
therapists, priests, healers and exorcists attempt to help people
who showed symptoms associated with spirit possession. These symptoms created
huge suffering for many families, whether the cause was called a ghost or
a kinesthetic image schema. Changing labels does not change lives.
In medieval times, imprisonment and torture as therapy
was well thought of. Nowadays, mind-distorting drug therapies
and electric-shock therapy are in vogue. But modern brutality
has similar effects to medieval brutality. People who survive the
therapy became skilled at hiding their symptoms.
Most symptoms of spirit possession seem to be predictable consequences
of certain types of family injustice.
If a family member dies in a shameful way, a demand for justice may cross
generations. Until it is changed, yet unborn children of subsequent
generations will show this injustice. We exorcise ghosts and
Have you experienced ghost or poltergeist activity? I was told
that ghosts like attention, so ignoring them might make them go away. Salt is
said to be effective at banishing evil spirits (salt is the root of the
word salvation) so sprinkling salt around an area affected by ghosts
might banish them. Sage is a small evergreen shrub with gray-green leaves that
is also thought by some to be effective at evicting evil spirits.
But after ignoring them, salting them and burning sage - I
was still haunted. I sought an exorcist to "cast out" the
spirits, a priest or someone with special abilities. But finding an
exorcist who would perform the sacred rights at a house was not easy.
So I asked Martyn for help.
Martyn's methods effectively manage many dark and depressing issues about
death. It works. I have observed Martyn change unpleasant symptoms that involved dead people, and release or
neutralize unpleasant spirits and esoteric agencies, during
a few sessions. Since I started learning it, I have entered a new
dimension of competence that I deeply wish I had known before I retired.
I thought you were just
another therapist - but you were not just. Not even. Not only.

Afterword by Martyn Carruthers
Fairy tales and movies provide scary stories of ghosts and the unquiet dead.
Stories of zombies, werewolves and evil spirits are mingled with sorcery and
black magic. The symptoms associated with medieval spirit possession resemble
those of identification with dead people.
