We recommend the book entitled "Possessed by Ghosts - Exorcisms of the 21st Century" whose author is Wanda Pratnicka, world-renowned exorcist and psychotherapist. Mrs Pratnicka is very well known among those interested in esoteric studies, she has been written about in many significant magazines dealing with esoteric studies. Wanda Pratnicka is also often invited to appear on television as one of the most outstanding experts on exorcism in the world.
Pratnicka's book is exceptionally popular because the knowledge contained in it has never before been published by any author in world literature. The book deals with the subject of the unrecognized problems of a great number of people. No-one has ever before embraced this subject in such a thorough and comprehensible way. At this moment (a month after its first printing) a second printing of the book is being made.
Pratnicka has, from her side, done what she could - she has written a book and sent it out to her patients, of whom she has several thousand. Now she is gathering its fruits. Every day she receives a huge number of telephone calls in which everyone thanks her for writing the book and publishing it, often crying with emotion as they do so.
It was written to let those who need to understand, but what we hear during the telephone conversations we mentioned exceeds our fondest expectations. She has helped in a quite unexpected way people who it would seem were in a hopeless situation. For example, the parents of an alcoholic had for years, in secret from him, asked for help in cleansing their son of ghosts. Pratnicka had, naturally, exorcised this man and the improvement had been very apparent but unfortunately, after some time, things had returned onto the old tracks. The mother had always asked for discretion so that the son wouldn't find out about Pratnicka's help. There were frequent arguments in the house and she was terrified by the thought of what might happen if he found out about her intervention. She feared that he could hurt her in an attack of rage. We sent the book addressed to the mother and "by chance" the alcoholic son received it. He phoned Pratnicka and ardently asked her to help him. He said: "Mrs Pratnicka, I read your book. I found out from it that I am an alcoholic and why all these things are happening to me. Now at last I understand what's going on here. At last I know that I can take things into my own hands. Till now life kept slipping out of my hands. I simply couldn't comprehend the reasons for my behavior. Every time I resolved that I would never again take alcohol into my lips then I instantly got drunk and was furious with myself for letting everyone down. Now I am aware of my problem and it's much easier. Thank you for that." How many people are there in Poland like this alcoholic? Drug addicts, schizophrenics, people possessed by ghosts, who could be helped in the same way? Very many, but first they have to find out that help is possible and the nature of their problem.
This account is about an alcoholic, but people talk the same way about virtually all other problems. Every moment they're phoning and relating how this book has changed their consciousness and their life. The most entertaining is when they report how they spent all night photocopying the book or how they waited impatiently in a long line for the opportunity of reading it. Or when they order several, or even dozens of new books.
This book has been read by people in virtually every walk of life, including many doctors and everyone is agreed that it is magnificent. It has also been read by literary critics, writers and poets. Their opinion, too, concurs. They claim that its simplicity astonished them - the way it's written which, apart from its contents, is one of its strong features.
At the moment the book is being translated into English, for the American market, and into German. There are translations being prepared in Spanish for all of Latin America. Having heard the opinion of experts who have read it, we are convinced that it will be a huge success and it would be a great mistake if everyone abroad knew it and read it but in Poland only a handful of people (maybe aside from Mrs Pratnicka's patients) knew about it. My view is that we should ensure that this book be known first and foremost in Poland and only then abroad.
What makes Wanda Pratnicka so special is her exceptional uniqueness. The majority of cases of visitation by real ghosts are treated the same day, remotely, whereas an exorcist priest needs for each case an average of 2 to 3 years. Added to this is the unusually high effectiveness. I should also mention here that Mrs Pratnicka is a psychotherapist of world repute. Most mental disturbances are treated in just one session whereas a traditional psychotherapist needs anything from 6 months to several years of regular sessions. Mrs Pratnicka is undoubtedly one of the greatest living Poles.

Aggressors from the beyond
WANDA PRATNICKA, exorcist from Gdansk speaks
There are many houses with "squatters" and many reasons why the dead have "moved in" to our homes. Invisible, they are always troublesome guests. It's even worse when they become unpredictable aggressors.
I must have been four, maybe five years old. During a trip on the streetcar I saw a woman standing motionless on the tracks. I created a fearful commotion. The driver braked not really knowing what was happening. Nobody saw any obstacle. The car moved on, considerably more slowly than usual. After two, maybe three minutes another image. This time I saw a child lying on the tracks. My earlier, apparently unjustified hysteria had saved the little child from an accident. At the time I didn't know what had really happened. I didn't appreciate that I have the chance to see what, as a rule, the human eye can not see. Later I made this contact consciously and voluntarily. Though it has to be admitted that "the invisible" often demonstrate their presence by themselves. For me personally these kinds of contact are not troublesome. But many people have had their lives thoroughly messed up by them.
Attacks of wild anxiety, sudden but systematic feelings of faintness is a sign that a "departed delinquent" has taken its place close to us. An uncle or a great grandmother who died years ago may not have been willing to leave our company. It can happen that those who have been sent to the last resort remain in the form of a troublesome energy. They will manifest themselves by the shuffling of footsteps, they will impose a weird thought, an obsessive fear or the desire to commit suicide. These attacks from nowhere, if they are not unmasked in time, will torment their victim more and more. These lower energies, which is what they are, were once normal human beings. Old habits and familiarity keep them hanging on to where they once lived or spent time.
Emission needed now
It's not easy to get an emission order for these "squatters". It can be dangerous. We often contribute to our troubles ourselves. A few months ago two adults brought a semi-conscious girl to my house. During a spiritualist séance one of the summoned beings announced that if they let the daughter fall asleep she will never again wake up. The victim of these thoughtless parents had not closed her eyes for two days. She was kept awake by all sorts of means, including pouring ice-cold water over her. Bearing in mind that this was happening during the winter it's not hard to guess what consequences these enforced baths threatened. I instantly put the girl, overcome with exhaustion, to bed. Everything ended happily.
It can happen that the ghosts summoned during a spiritualist séance remain. Unnoticed, they soak into the energy fields around us. If not removed in time, they will force themselves into our consciousness. And their appetites are certainly huge.
Write out a return address
Hundreds of clients asking for help are participants of séances whose main feature is table turning. With some it all ends in just hysteria - an erroneous but equally destructive conviction about attacks from the beyond. Frequently, however, they are not mere illusions. A relative summoned to give answers will respond to the summons. He will willingly answer all possible questions. And the fact that he transpires to be a completely different ghost is something else. He will say exactly what we want to hear. They decipher the signals from our subconscious faultlessly. They can read our desires and dreams.
Getting rid of delinquents from the beyond is difficult, can even be impossible. It's not easy to make contact with them. It is even harder to persuade them to move out of where the departed stay as a rule. Once it was the victim of an automobile crash. Death was instantaneous. The dead man didn't have time to become aware that his life had reached its end. He stuck with his family stubbornly. There was also a woman who was passionately attached to the saucers and cups she had spent her whole life collecting. Death did not eliminate the love she had for the trifles she'd spent years collecting. She therefore remained in her home. Its new tenants sensed a strange alienation. They simply didn't know why they lacked all desire to do anything. Every day they were tormented by attacks of fear.
Battle for the body
Ghosts are the same as the people were when alive. Passions, customs, feelings do not die. Along with their arrival the battle for the body begins.
Sometimes it's the occupation of the whole person. It can be that they are like leeches stuck to us and they feed on our energy. There are also those who penetrate into a person. What we're dealing with here is a haunting. The ghost of a very evil person can bestow on us actions which can expand to a truly demonic level. American, German and French statistics say that one in twelve or fourteen people have experienced an encounter, more or less dangerous in its consequences, with the beyond. During my 25-year practice I, too, have had to contend with hordes of wandering "other-worlders". All I need is the address where the unwanted tenants have installed themselves. However, the help of a spiritual guardian is essential. He or she is the one who helps them to pass through to where they should find themselves as quickly as possible.

A father died of cancer and visited his son, "infecting" him with the same disease. I think that, just as in other cases, the expulsion of the ghost will heal the boy...
Battling with real ghosts
Conversation with Wanda Pratnicka, exorcist
If someone has a negative attitude to the world, has changeable moods, is chronically ill or is excessively... fat or thin then it could all be down to evil real ghosts which have possessed them, according to Wanda Pratnicka, exorcist and parapsychologist.
Ghosts do exist - the exorcist assures us. At the moment of death a person leaves a skirt or body in the earth and becomes a ghost. Death is a passing through the curtain which separates the living from the world of the dead.
Are all ghosts the same?
They are very different, just like people. A person who was good in this life will be a positive ghost after death, and vice versa - a scoundrel or criminal will be a negative ghost. Both kinds, however, can cause problems. Every human being ought to make their own decisions about themselves, but real ghosts weaken the possibilities of deciding our own fate.
In your view, why do ghosts possess people?
There are several reasons. Firstly, some ghosts are lost, they don't know what to do with themselves. They then incorporate themselves into living people. This applies chiefly to the souls of people who died suddenly, not fully aware, e.g. during an accident or when drugged. Then they visit others, causing many problems. These ghosts are among the worst since they can force a person to commit crimes, suicide or murder.
Your task is to release a possessed person from ghosts. How do you do that?
I don't have one single method because every ghost is different and will react differently. However, I always do it remotely, without seeing the possessed person. I connect with the ghost. If I assess that I'll be able to deal with it then I try to carry it to the other side of "the curtain". It can sometimes take several months.
Are there real ghosts which cause you particular problems?
It's undoubtedly hardest dealing with the ghost of a very close person, e.g. a father or mother. A real ghost like that is connected to the person possessed by emotional ties, the family home, it feels very comfortable.
Can it be said that someone is more or less susceptible to possession?
Everyone can be possessed, but it has been confirmed that ghosts will more often come to people who are sick, mentally weakened, experiencing "a low", or who have limited awareness as a result of alcohol or narcotics.
How can one protect oneself against "evil forces"?
The only insurance is a strong will. If some anxiety or fear appears, one has to be determined and tell oneself "no, I won't give in to it". Prayer can also prove to be effective. One must think positively because thought is an enormous power which, unfortunately, not everyone appreciates. Thank you.
