Who you gonna call when you want to sell up but the ghost won’t leave?

first_imgFor the last 11 years, Mr Pasley and his wife Chris have run their Red Spirit Energy Healing business from Ipswich and say one in five clients believe their house is haunted.“Energies can build up to such a point that they can physically shift things,” Mr Pasley said.“If you have an angry person, they are going to attract more angry energy and eventually it can build up to become an entity in itself.”For roughly the same price as a pest inspection you could have your house and property cleared of its misguided energies which can present as an unsettling feeling when you move into a room, or can be more physical, lighting candles, moving fridges and making things go bump in the night. <<>> Today’s energy healers are a lot more professional than these guys.More from newsParks and wildlife the new lust-haves post coronavirus16 hours agoNoosa’s best beachfront penthouse is about to hit the market16 hours agoBut before you call in the ghostbusters, you could try this do-it-yourself remedy using white sage.It’s called ‘smudging’. “There’s a higher invisible world around us,” Ipswich-based energy healer Mark Pasley said.“Most of the time people believe it is the lost soul of a human spirit, that’s not accurate. Ninety per cent of the time it’s an accumulation of misguided energies.” Ghosts, ghouls, and gremlins don’t scare Chris and Mark Pasley of Ipswich, who work with families to expel unwanted energies from the home. (AAP Image/Josh Woning)He said energies can come from teenage angst, couples going through a divorce, drug use, death or violent activities performed in a house, with bedrooms and the office the most susceptible rooms for this accumulation of energies.center_img Real life ghostbuster Mark Pasley gives advice on how to balance the energies in your home before you put it on the market. AAP Image/Josh WoningIT DOESN’T matter if it’s Casper or Chucky, having an unwelcomed ‘polter-guest’ at your first open house could be more of a trick than a treat.So after you have welcomed the ghouls and goblins into your home for Halloween, it might pay to do a little cleansing before you put that for sale sign up. CHECK OUT THE BRISBANE HOUSES OPEN FOR INSPECTION TODAY White sage wrapped into a smudge stick helps clear the house of misguided energies.Mr Pasley recommends doing this weekly as a general practice, but if you are planning an open house, smudge at least one week beforehand.“When you smudge with sage some people may mistake the smell for marijuana so it’s a good idea not to do it just before an open house,’’ he said.“Because we have just sold our property, we smudged it every other day.”Here’s how it works:Buy some white sage. This is salvia apiana and different to culinary sage (salvia officinalis) and can be found in health food stores, crystal shops and new age retail outlets in Brisbane.Open the windows and pull back blinds to let in the light and tie the sage together.Light the sage ‘stick’ and get the smoke billowing. Put a saucer under the bunch to catch any ash and walk through the house and into every room, wafting the smoke through the rooms.At the same time play some music.“Your favourite music,” Mr Pasley said.“Whatever you feel that gives you an uplifting sensation that will raise the vibration of the property.“When there’s feelings of bitterness, particularly around divorce, you need to lighten up the feel of the place.”And don’t forget to smudge people too.“Not only houses but people can be haunted,’’ he said.Keeping the ghouls at bay and the energies balanced in your home comes down to one thing, Mr Pasley said.“In the end love conquers all but you have to believe that and practice that.”last_img read more

Fantasy Injury Updates: Julian Edelman, Will Fuller, Ryan Griffin among key Week 14 active/inactive worries

first_imgInjured WRs and TEs are wreaking havoc on the first round of the fantasy playoffs, as T.Y. Hilton, JuJu Smith-Schuster, Evan Engram, Gerald Everett, and Greg Olsen have already been declared out (and Adam Thielen is “doubtful”). There are also a few key pass-catchers (Julian Edelman, Will Fuller, Marquise Brown, Ryan Griffin, David Njoku) who enter the weekend with “questionable” tags, and at least a couple figure to be true game-time decisions. We’ll have the latest updates below throughout the day to help with your Week 14 fantasy start ’em, sit ’em decisions. For updates on injured RBs Josh Jacobs and Jordan Howard, click here; for the Week 14 weather report, click here. Follow us on Twitter for more news and updates @SN_Fantasy. WEEK 14 NON-PPR RANKINGS:Quarterback | Running back | Wide receiver | Tight end | D/ST | KickerIs Julian Edelman playing Week 14?UPDATE: Edelman is officially ACTIVE.Edelman (shoulder) is “questionable” for what feels like the 14th-straight week, but once again, he’s in no danger of missing this week’s game. Despite a tough matchup on paper against the Chiefs, Edelman is a must-start in all formats. WEEK 14 DFS LINEUPS:DK Cash | DK GPP | FD Cash | FD GPP | Y! Cash | Y! GPPIs Will Fuller playing Week 14?UPDATE 2: Fuller is officially OUT. UPDATE: Fuller is expected to miss Week 14, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport. Fuller (hamstring) got in limited practices all week, and he figures to be a true game-time decisions for Sunday’s early-afternoon game against Denver. If Fuller plays, consider him a boom-or-bust WR3, as he is most weeks. If he’s out, bump up Kenny Stills into WR3 territory. WEEK 14 PPR RANKINGS: Running back | Wide receiver | Tight endMarquise Brown injury updateUPDATE: Brown is officially ACTIVE.Brown (ankle) is once again “questionable” despite practicing most of the week. This is fairly common for him, so it’s likely he suits up for Sunday’s early-afternoon game against the Bills. The exciting rookie has been the definition of a boom-or-bust WR3 this year. Given his matchup against Buffalo’s stout secondary, he’s riskier than usual in all formats, but we thought that two weeks ago against the Rams when he caught two scores. If you need higher-ceiling players in your lineup, you can stick with Brown. MORE WEEK 14: Sleepers | Busts | Start ’em, sit ’emIs David Njoku playing Week 14?UPDATE: Njoku is officially ACTIVE. Njoku (wrist) has been officially activated from injured reserve and is fully expected to play on Sunday against the Bengals. Njoku hasn’t played since Week 2, so it’s tough to know what to expect here, but given his talent level and the relatively soft defense he’ll be facing, he’s a legit low-end TE1 this week. MORE WEEK 14 DFS: Stacks | Values | Lineup Builder Ryan Griffin injury updateUPDATE: Griffin is officially ACTIVE. Griffin (illness) manged to get in limited practices on Thursday and Friday, but he’s still listed as “questionable” for Sunday’s game against the Dolphins.Considering he got some practice time in, it’s unlikely he’ll miss the game like teammate Le’Veon Bell. As long as he’s active, have him in your lineup. If he’s out, Daniel Brown and Trevon Wesco will split time at tight end.last_img read more
