Some physical and emotional symptoms show up because of an attached being. Did symptoms appear originally and continue without an apparent stress trigger? If they did show up without an obvious trigger, here's a brief list:
It takes a trained and experienced shaman to know if someone's problem can be relieved with shamanic methods and wisdom. It also takes a trained and experienced shaman to identify and safely help a disembodied being move on in a sacred way.
Back when I was first starting out in 2011, I only had a Reiki master level under my belt, crystals and lit up sage. I was taught that I could transition the dead using Reiki. Well, that didn't work out too well. I was attacked and one time hit in the chest by an angry being who feared me. The chest pain lasted for a month. I had good intentions to relieve suffering for someone, and I believed to be protected. It took a few years of training and practice to work compassionately, be fully empowered, and have big tools to work with, to be successful each time.
Take your problem to the pros.
I appreciate the opportunity to share a calm perspective about this topic. Ancient Greeks had a special word for people who are trained and gifted in the safe transition of disembodied spirits. That word is Psychopomp. In Greek, psyche, pronounced psee-he, identifies the soul of a being. Pomp is a sacred procession in a festival honoring ancient Greek gods, like Dionysius. The ultimate fate of a soul deserves a sacred process. For most of us, the word psych will be familiar. You've probably even heard the word psyched up used to mean getting mentally prepared for some big event.
Today psych-ology means the study of the psyche, exclusively the human mind, so it's far the original understanding of the ancient Greeks. They saw the soul as essential, not separate from a person's identity. The soul is a container of memories and the essence of a unique person. Core soul energizes the mind's ability to think and feel. Those of us who are psychopomps, we specialize in recognizing the soul and healing it. We know the presence of human soul means a body is alive. So "pomp" is the process of helping a psyche, a soul, in a sacred way to move from the earthly plane to their next journey into the afterlife.
Do you ever find yourself reacting with frustration and anger to somebody cutting you off in traffic, a colleague dismisses you, boyfriend dumps on you in a bad mood? In a situation like this, as an empathic person, you're feeling your stuff and theirs. You become one of two kinds of people: You get upset on the inside and hide your feelings or show your feelings then and there—rolling your eyes, or saying something sarcastic. Which are you? It's fairly common. Preventing that whole division from starting in the first place is a huge gain. From a shamanic perspective, you want inner wisdom to rise up in you; it's your inner shield of calm and peace, so you don't over-react or under-react. Right? Otherwise, it could add up to soul loss. Doing just a bit of writing invests in deciding who you’re going to be in a situation. That builds self-empowerment, and you can be of use in the situation when someone else is losing their cool. Or at least not make things worse.
Developing inner wisdom takes effort.
