What Can I Do About Bad Energy In My Basement

I’m a 20 year old female who still lives at home. I have lived in the same house all of my life with both of my parents who are still happily married.

My mother has been married three times, her first marriage was with the father of my two half sisters, who I basically consider to be my full sisters because we grew up together. The second, I didn’t know about for most of my life. The third marriage was with my father.

About the second marriage: a few years ago, my half sister told me that my mother had a previous husband who committed suicide in my house. He did it because he was sexually abusing his daughter, (who also lived here with my two sisters before I was born) and she had finally told someone about it.

When I started going to puberty, I started getting very depressed for a number of reasons. My parents love me and are great, but they were severely over protective, so I was stuck at home way too much. I struggled with severe depression for about 2 years until I started taking medication. I was finally diagnosed with Dysthymia and I’m on a medication that works great for me and I no longer feel overwhelming dread. I’m not sure if it is my brain that is causing the depression, or possibly bad spirits? I’ve always felt negative energy lurking in the basement of my house which I moved into when my sisters moved out. Upstairs feels peaceful, but the basement feels awful. I talked to my friends about it, and apparently no one feels the negative effects of my basement but me.

Could it be that my mom’s ex husband is somehow haunting the place? The thing is, if he didn’t kill himself, him and my mom would probably still be married and I wouldn’t exist. It is because of his death that I am alive today. Is he haunting me specifically? I haven’t experienced anything typical of spirits, I’ve just always felt this sad presence down here.

I am not a religious person. I’m very agnostic. My parents are kind of religious, but not the church going type.

I don’t know what to do about the negative energy but I honestly can’t take it anymore. I try to stay away from home as long as possible just so I don’t have to deal with it. I still need to live here for another year or so, so I just want to cleanse my basement somehow.

I’m going to go buy some sage and burn it and let it waft around my basement. Is there anything else I should try?
Someone please help, I am clueless about this kind of stuff.

Hi Em,

Let’s sort out a few things – unless you are seeing No 2 husband in your dreams, or before your eyes, he has no reason to be haunting you. And given what he had been doing, your mother might have divorced him, still married your dad, and you would still exist as the same person you are today.

Because the medication works for you, your illness is chemical and not metaphysical, in other words, not nasty ghosts. Keep taking the medicine, for your own benefit. Peace of mind is so much lovelier than pain and confusion.

Clearing the basement .. have you told your parents what you have been sensing. They might be wondering why you are not at home very much anymore, and worrying about that. Perhaps the three of you could get the white sage and go down there together to clear the energy out, or the whole family can. The love you guys have for each other will help with the clearing, not just the sage itself. Or you could use the Michael Invocation, a link is at the bottom of the page here, to do the same, but do talk to your parents first, if you haven’t already done so .. they might also be sensing a problem.

You could be the only ‘sensitive’ person in the family, but you inherited the gift from one of your parents. It might be interesting to find out which one.

Love & Peace
