I had a great conversation with our pastor (who just married my daughter and son in law) and her husband during the reception about the stuff that had gone on in our house.  I told her everything from when the kids first had experiences, to all the stuff that lead me to starting a journal and the discussion I had with my aunt whom is a medium.

Pastor Karen mentioned that she has blessed houses before.  She did confide in me that most of those that she blessed felt like normal houses and the family wanted piece of mind.

She did tell me that there were a couple of houses that were immediately apparent to have something else there in it.  She would not or could not say that it was any specific type of ghost, demon, whatever.  She said that she did her thing in those houses, but, that she felt the urge to be commanding / demanding in her actions to rid the house of whatever it was.

She was genuinely interested in what I told her about our house.  She said that if anything starts up again that she would be happy to come bless the house and get rid of whatever is there.

Sounds like a plan.

I blessed our house myself and it seemed to work, although, I haven't had any problems with spirit. I have more problems with the living.

I'm not intentionally playing the devils advocate and my research as all of you know is fundamentally evidence based if that does exist in pseudoscience but I've heard mixed opinions on cleansing, clearing and smudging.

The long time debate remains that it can:

1.) Have a positive effect minimally or more.
2.) Have no effect at all.
3.) Perturb what is there.

Speculations also use the hypothesis, what IF, whatever is there contains a different sense of worship to the one doing the clearing. As in what IF you have a catholic priest performing a clearing and the residing spirit is Buddhist?

To date I have asked something to leave my own residence without re-occurrence or consequences. I was lucky in my case.

If at all possible, please don't turn this into a spiritual debate of any sort. Try to keep it generic if you can to make sure the aethist and true believers don't start a war :)

Does she sage as well?  She sounds like a mystic.  A shaman would be probably be a better candidate for cleansing. If you can find someone who is contact with the spirit world and can see energy of other entities.

That's so true. Consider the scenario of a resident ghost/spirit is a pre-contact Native American or even an Elemental and you bring in a non-native priest or reverend to bless/clear your home? IMHO, I don't think it's going to end well.

I would (personally) attempt to cross it over (if it is a spirit). But since there is no way to tell what it is (or if your pastor is withholding information, for whatever reason) you might just want to leave it be. Have you had your aunt come check out the house to determine what type of activity is there?

Going into this, being new and having no idea of stuff you have/haven't posted on this topic is a little hard for me, but I tried.

I'm glad the pastor would come back and bless your house if anything else continues. I hope things get better for you.

You're in my thoughts. Please keep us updated on anything that occurs in your house. You could also could a journal of things going on if you haven't done so already.

I don't believe ghosts become perturbed by any kind of spiritual warfare. Only evil entities do and my opinion, from my experience, is that the home owner should use their religion whatever that may be. I've lost count of how many house blessings I've done in regards to native American spirits (the area i live in is called "the Indian valley" and I use or counsel the home owners to use their religion. Those who have no religious preferences choose to follow native American customs sometimes and I've seen both ways work. I don't know as much about ghosts as I do demons, but I've also seen religion not work on ghosts. If they are not evil they have no reason to flee from spiritual warfare tactics. That's when following other tactics may come in handy...just wanted to add in my two cents.
