Ghost Busting : is a term that is associated with getting rid
of unwanted ghosts or entities from places where they are not
desirable. The term has possibly been popularised by a Hollywood
Film called 'Ghost Busters'. Although this film had quite a humorous
slant to it, in real life, it would appear, that ghost busting services
are sometimes required to get rid of unwanted 'visitors'. The
Internet has a number of organisations that claim to offer help with these
unwanted 'visitors' and other things that go 'bump in the night'. Some
people actually make a hobby out of ghost hunting, which, unlike
ghost busting, is less about trying to rid oneself of ghosts; but is more
about trying to observe and capture the phenomenon on film.
Traditionally, if someone felt that they or their property were under
threat by a ghostly presence; they would typically call for a priest or
someone from the church to bless them or their property. In the
event that this did not succeed they would possibly then ask a clergyman
to perform, what is commonly referred to as an exorcism. This is an
act or process of invoking supernatural aid by the use of a magical form
of words. The dictionary defines the term exorcism as:
'The act of exorcising; the driving out of evil spirits from persons or places by conjuration; also, the form of conjuration used.'
