Hye, greetings in peace,love and light.
Once again, let us use a much more appropriate word for spirits as we respect the dead and its not appropriate to label the spirit as creature. Because, when its our time to pass on the spiritual world, we will be in the form of spirit energy, and when other people call or label us as creatures, we do feel sad about it. Therefor, its good to apply respect towards the dead. A religion book is a man made, and it does not have or posses any energy or power to control a spirit because all living energy in this world have a freewill which means choices for their own action. Therefor physical objects can't be used against a spirit energy to harm them or even to control them and so on. I have seen too many times, where people who dont have experience on ghost, ends up using the bible and casting away the spirit by reading the holly words, at the end of the day, the problem becomes much worst and the bible seems to be making things worst only due to the person reading it. That provokes the spirit and as they get angry they do try to play pranks. So therefor bible is just a knowledge for us humans to follow a good and happy life, but not to miss use it to control spirits or so on. Cause it simply doesn't work. Spirits are exactly just like humans, if we are good in the physical world, we will be good in the spiritual world, but if we are a rude and bad person in the physical world, we will be the same rude and bad person in the spiritual world plus we will be anchored to the lower plane and we wont be able to progress in our spiritual journey due to our negative attitudes and so on. Therefor its important to leave all emotional scars and baggage's while we are in this physical world before its our time to enter the spiritual world. Because its much difficult to discard the negative emotion in the spiritual world. We all serve a purpose as we born into this physical dimension. Spirits can communicate to humans through dreams, and through physical touch. They dont use blood nor other elements to contact with human. Based on my research, spirit is energy, so therefor anything that resembles and energy can only be a medium of manipulation. Spirits are made of total solid mass energy. Fire is just a basic element. In the spiritual world, we call it as the place of light because its the place where all light beings go when they pass away in this physical world. We are all light beings, and when its our time to shed our physical body, we ll will experience that moment of light.
