About the ASPRT

The Association for Spirit Possession Research and Therapies (ASPRT) was founded by a group of psychotherapists, clergy, medical and complementary health practitioners who had a special interest in working with the condition known as spirit attachment or possession. The intention was to provide help and support for research and therapeutic intervention in cases of ostensible spirit possession and related states of consciousness.

The Association’s objectives are:

  • to encourage awareness and understanding of internal and external influences on the mind, body and spirit, including those of spirit attachment and possession.
  • to introduce this awareness and understanding to health-care practitioners, clergy, and the general public.
  • to provide training and support for practitioners in this field.
  • to support research into related areas of spiritual, mental and physical well being as may be appropriate.

Spirit Attachment, Oppression and Possession

Some of the more common symptoms of spirit interference, including attachment and possession, can be: lack of energy, memory disturbance, behavioral change, mood change, addictive behaviour, relationship problems and hearing disturbing voices. There may be bodily pain and other physical symptoms. The degree of attachment also varies. Some individuals are scarcely affected, while in rare cases the individual’s body and mind have been taken over completely. Paranormal disturbances such as poltergeist activity (unexplained noises or movement of objects) and seeing apparitions (ghosts) are also commonly reported effects.

Spirit attachment is not uncommon and is often misdiagnosed because many practitioners are not aware of it and because the symptoms might fit a number of possible diagnoses. In some instances attachments exacerbate an existing complaint with similar symptoms. They may be the reason that recovery from a complaint is very slow.

Depossession or Spirit Releasement is the is the term given to the process of clearing the attachment.
