Some people are more susceptible to picking up spirits than others. There are many ways of unconsciously picking up spirits. Spirits feed off, and are attracted by, our negative emotions. Most people attract them when they experience powerful negative emotions during stressful life events (ex. death of a loved one, divorce, martial separation, personal injury or illness, depression, dismissal from work or any emotion that causes to produce a shock to the aura / vibration to your body, hold grudges and don’t want to forgive, have feelings of guilt, use alcohol or drugs, despair greatly after a loved one who passed away, during surgeries under the influence of anesthesia, during severe illness when body is weakened, while summoning ghosts (ex. playing with Ouija Board), while living in a haunted house, or during spiritual healing practices. People raised in abusive environments, where there was no love, are also more susceptible. In simple terms, the more distress a living person is feeling, the higher the likelihood of spirit attachment.
