When it comes to spirits and specters, knowledge is power and fear is the enemy.

How to Clear Your Home of Ghosts & Spirits is a guide to everything you need to know to get rid of ghosts. Providing a brief history of haunts and delving into her own personal experiences, paranormal researcher Debi Chestnut sheds light on the different types of ghosts–from harmless spirits to destructive entities–and gives tips and techniques for clearing them.

Join Debi as she explores how ghosts and spirits can be accidentally invited into the home and shows how to choose a paranormal team for extreme cases. Written in a no-nonsense style by an author with years of experience, this guide is a must-have for those who prefer to live with the facts instead of living in fear.

When I started reading How to Clear Your Home of Ghosts & Spirits, I was rather skeptical. I’ve read a lot of true haunting books, and I thought I knew pretty well how to handle ghosts and spirits in a home. I thought I wasn’t going to learn anything new. Imagine my surprise when I picked up quite a few things I hadn’t known before.

Author Debi Chestnut starts with looking for logical explenations for the proclaimed haunting, which is a big bonus. Half of the time, people suspect their house is haunted, while in reality, it’s nothing more than a squeaky door, loose floorboards, or even rats and mice. Then she goes on to explain the different types of haunting, using her personal experience.

Some parts were a bit repetitive, but the author manages to give the reader a clear, concise rundown of different types of hauntings, and what to do when they think their house might be haunted. She also gives her email address in case anyone needs help, which I thought was very generous, and showed her sincerity.

I didn’t always agree with the author’s point of view, or the way she classified the different types of hauntings – I would’ve used a different classification – but she explains everything so even people completely new to the world of hauntings and paranormal phenomena, would understand it.

If you think your house might be haunted, pick up this book before you call in the Ghostbusters. It might save you some time, and you might learn a bit more about the specters inhabiting your home.
