Energetic Smog and how it Attracts Entities

Author and Healing Medium Annemiek Douw explains how places can get energetically polluted and attract entities, and what can be done about it.

Just like energy can get stuck to a person’s aura, it can also linger for quite some time in rooms and buildings. This can be compared to the situation in which you, a non-smoker, enter a closed, unventilated room where someone has been smoking heavily. The room is still filled with smoke and you have to ‘digest the smoky leftovers’.


Some people are very sensitive to these kinds of energies and are bothered by them because it influences the way they feel and function. They resonate with the vibrational field and the atmospheric waves that come with it.

If it’s a positive field, e.g. the normally loving, gentle and happy atmosphere that you find in the maternity ward of a hospital, it will not be such a problem, I guess.

But if the energy cloud consists of negativity, feelings of inadequacy, loneliness, violence, pain, sorrow or disease, we can probably assume that it isn’t much fun if your mood and emotions are being influenced by it.


Just as a hitchhiker in your aura can influence your state of being, a field of left-over energy can do that too. It simply amplifies a vibe in your aura that wasn’t completely right to begin with. So the feature that was already present becomes even more apparent. And if you already have a talent for it, or easily become unbalanced over a certain type of issue, such energy fields can have a large and inconvenient impact on your life.


Children can resonate with these types of fields very strongly and will behave differently and awkwardly when they’re in the middle of one. Of course they can’t help it, they’re simply showing that the energy of the room isn’t clean enough.

Reasons for Sticking

There are a number of reasons why old energy stays in a particular place but leaves another.

Sometimes, it has to do with the local energy of the Earth herself. Because of Earth’s magnetic field, some places are more easily tainted than others. And just as on the weather report, a map shows high and low pressure and the currents of air, you could draw a map of places where energy tends to get stuck. In the same way that clouds drift to one side of the mountain and not to the other, and therefore drop rain on the same place over and over again, energy can get stuck in the same places too. These places can be entwined with water veins (streams of water underneath the surface of the Earth) or earth rays, the cracks in the earth that absorb all of the positive energy, but can also simply arise from not opening the window on a regular basis and therefore preventing energy from being renewed.

A big contributing factor is the history of a place. If you visit Normandy in France, you may feel the old World War II energy that’s still there from the time the Allied Forces came to the rescue of the people of Europe. Especially near the coast, where many men died as they arrived by boat or parachute, the large cloud of war energy is almost tangible as it often is in regions that have seen heavy fighting . In these places the mass and enormity of the events creates a huge cloud of energy that can stick to a suitable place in the landscape such as a corner in the river, a side of the hill where it can’t easily be blown away by the fresh cleansing wind or the swamps where darker energy tends to linger anyway. If it starts to pile up, the cloud will become bigger and bigger and its energy will grow stronger with every experience.


Entities and polluted areas

As I mentioned in The Upside of Aura Hitchhikers, an entity is a deceased person who is still earthbound and who will stay at a place where the energy fits his. Sometimes that might be in your aura.

On other occasions it is more like the way that classical music is sometimes played to ‘scare’ teenagers in certain shopping malls in the Netherlands while other malls play hip-hop to ‘scare’ elderly people when they hang out in too large a number. It’s just a matter of finding a place where you feel at home so if you don’t like the music or the energy you will move to another spot.

And for an entity, these fields with old energy can be a real treat. Since they feed off them, they can be the breeding ground that helps them to keep their strength up.

Worst case

So in a worst case scenario, you find yourself in a place with bad energy and entities! This is not a problem when you’re completely balanced. But if you’re not, and you resonate with their fields, the energy field and the entities may bring you more discomfort and thus provide you with an excellent opportunity to grow.


Still, even though it may present excellent opportunities to grow, it would be nice to be able to get rid of certain fields of negative energy.

There are several ways that you can do this: if the field isn’t too big you may try and use Paolo Santo (Sacred Peruvian Wood) just like you would use a stick of incense. It cleanses rooms very well and you will find that the energy will become lighter and brighter.

Purify, an Australian Bush Remedy made from the energy of flowers, can clean up certain energies in the same way that crystals such as amethyst and rock-crystal can help transform negative and polluted fields. Praying may also help in some cases. Where the energy field is more stubborn and harder to get rid of you might a specialized healer with expertise in clearing energies to help you with it.

And sometimes, like in France, nothing can be done by just a small group of people or one individual. Then, the earth needs to be healed on a different scale and a large growth in consciousness is needed to neutralize the energetic pollution of the earth. Luckily the growth of consciousness required is the combination of our individual growth, so if you want, you can help to cleanse the earth by growing yourself, as a soul.

ANNEMIEK DOUW, MSc is a management coach, energetic therapist, lightworker, medium, trainer and author. Coming from an unlikely background in engineering, Annemiek has always been interested in how people think and grow at a physical, mental, emotional and spiritual level. In her work within the government and business sectors, she began to see how illness comes into people’s lives, often making it unpredictable and seemingly out of control. This influenced her to start exploring bioenergetics and other alternative therapies, eventually leading her to complete a 3-year course at the Natural Medicine Academy South-Netherlands to become a paranormal therapist. In 1998 she dedicated herself to this work full-time. She later fell ill herself for an extended period of time, which allowed her to gain first-hand insight into the human experience of illness, and to learn how the soul is an internal compass that continuously guides. Probing more deeply into how this compass works, Annemiek discovered 21 layers of the soul that influence our ability to grow and to heal in our bodies, minds and relationships. This discovery became the foundation of her unique healing style, and today Annemiek helps clients heal at many levels, and teaches them how to read this compass for themselves. Wanting to share this unprecedented work with a wider audience, she published the Dutch language book De ziel in het licht van haar hogere auralagen in 2011. The English translation of this book is coming in autumn 2013, under the title 21 Layers of the Soul: Healing the Karmic Ties with Friends, Lovers, Family and Enemies.
