To hear Lordan explain it, it seems impossible not to put out bad energy. Couples fight. You have bad days at work. You move into a new house and -- surprise! -- you need to take care of $2,000 in unexpected plumbing repairs.
So, your house is lousy with ghosts. What next? You could start by chasing them with metaphysical Raid.
“When you get a house like this, you can sage it," says Lordan. "You can use Saint John’s Wort to clean it. You can place holy oils. In New Orleans, you definitely repaint the walls, the floors, and the ceiling. It changes the energy.”
She also recommends having a priest of one ilk or another bless the house.
But don’t get too excited. Those spirits are coming back. That must mean the next stage is something crazy, right? An exorcism. A cleansing fire, maybe. “There’s a point where you have to tell them, ‘You have to leave,'” Lordan says.
