An exorcism tends to be a religious rite for driving Satan or evil spirits out of a possessed person, place, or thing. In ancient times, many cultures had such rites. Today, the Roman Catholic Church still believes in diabolic possession and its priests still practice what is called “real exorcism,” a 27-page ritual to drive out evil spirits. The ritual involves the use of holy water, incantations, various prayers, incense, relics, and Christian symbols such as the cross.
We at Healing Haunted Houses do not conduct an exorcism, nor do we have any religious affiliation. Yes, we conduct a form of ritual, a process, but we believe the spirits that may haunt a house are not necessarily evil, or Satanic. Some ghosts or entities may be malevolent but most are in fact quite ready to move on. We focus on returning the ghosts or spirits to where they belong, not just drive them out, and in doing so heal the energy of the house.
