Signs To Identify A Pishacha And How To Prevent It From Affecting You


We are not alone. Earth is a dimension of existence and has within its fold various other dimensions, some perceivable, some not. The entire Creation is interdependent – something like the food chain, in which humans are supposed to be at the top. But are we at the top?

It is a little complex to understand, it was not easy for me also, but then the devlok helped me clarify a lot of things.


World is also a web, everything is interconnected or interdependent. One man’s food is other man’s poison. Different energies feed on different kinds of nourishment. Plants, the lighter beings feed on sunlight and water. Cows and subtle energies feed on plants. The energies we call animalistic, feed on flesh and blood. When a yagya is performed, devas get nourishment. The samidha, ghrit, mantras, samagri and bhaav, with the blessings of Guru, release an energy which directly affects the devlok and in return, devas shower blessings upon us. Devas get food through yagyas and have a symbiotic relationship with humans, but what about the world of spirits – bhoot, preta, pishach? Who feeds them and from where do they get their nourishment? They also have to survive and co-exist with us. Them, their food, the mechanism, I will detail now…

Spirits exist everywhere. It need not be a haunted house, cemetery or a crematorium. They are everywhere. They surround us, all the time. Only we are, oblivious of them. If you are sensitive, you will always find some kind of energy in some place or with a person. It can be good, happy, strange, dark, depressing, fearful…Because, spirits are energy. What defines an energy is the impact it creates or leaves on a place or a person, or technically the prana which vibrates in it. It could be subtle or heavy. Depression is heavy, happiness is light, peace is lighter, and detachment is void, devoid of any feeling. Anger is intense, passion is intense. Pleasures are of different kinds, some derived from creativity, nature, adventure, some from different tastes, sights or sounds, some from grief, sorrow, cruelty…

Ancients have described the three gunas which categorise them `- Satvik, Rajasik, Tamasik. While satvik is a subtler aspect, rajasik is associated with worldly desires; it is the tamasik energy which is associated with lower forms of energy, like pishach or pretas. These lower forms of energies derive food/strength from lower emotions, cruelty, flesh and blood, deaths and miseries, chaos and disturbance. These are the foods of the pishach. These negative energies look for vulnerable individuals.

Take the example of a household which is happily carrying out the process called ‘life’, there is happiness and fulfilment. The pishach needs food, he is hungry. This is not the place where he can find it, as he feeds on negativity and negative emotions. He thinks, if he could somehow convert this happy household into an unhappy chaotic one, the fresh negativity so-generated would be organic healthy food for him! So the play begins…after all humans too till fresh soil and disturb it for their food, so why can’t the pishach do the same with humans?

Stage 1. The pishach picks on the weakest link in the family and enters him/her through a weakness – food or drink or sex, a sensory pleasure. He ensures that this person meets a human who could pollute him through one of the basic vices. The pishach then convinces the person that this human is an excellent person, visions are shown and slowly trust is built up. When the two become very close, the pishach slowly starts to distance the friend from the person – by showing him as a devil in visions, or by whispering negative things about him/her. A conflict develops, there are minor arguments, the pishach feeds on this and gains health, the person and the friends become weaker.

Stage 2. When the person goes home, he carries with him a vice and negative emotion. This immediately creates a clash in the family, arguments start, alcohol is introduced, fights begin. The pishach becomes stronger, he now starts controlling the brains of the family members. Slowly he whispers in their ears negative things about each other, distrust is built, egos clash, fights increase, as does the negativity in the house. The more the clashes, the more the negativity, the more food for pishach. Pishach feeds on this and becomes very strong, the family on the other hand becomes weak. The law, energy cannot be created or destroyed but it only changes form, is at play. The happy positive energy of the household has changed into food for the pishach.

Stage 3. The family members meet more negative people outside – new friends, drinking bouts, fights, clashes, emotional turmoil, unhappiness, unfulfillment, chasing the unreal, trusting corrupt Gurus and getting upayas, resorting to black magic in the name of pujas, chasing money, thinking it to be the finality, becoming intolerant, deriving tamasik pleasure out of another human or animal’s pain, feeding egos – all this now is a daily affair. The pishach gets more food and becomes so strong that he now controls more and more households…societies, countries, leading to utter chaos and finally destruction.

Pishachs exist since the time of Creation. It is not a simple energy. He is an adept. He can take many forms, manifest in different aspects, manipulate in such ways that one cannot imagine – as a friend, a relation or even Guru – a form you trust. And slowly it gives you a vision which has the ability to break trust. Once the trust is broken, you are a sitting duck, as you have lost your protection by mistrusting your protections.

The signs of pishach entering your life are clear – chaos, fights, shouting/screaming, mistrust, doing strange things, trying to buy upayas off-the-shelf from fake Gurus. Pishach will whisper things in your ears and you will act it all out, moving towards disaster. It’ll tell you to trust the most untrustworthy people, steering you towards people with low consciousness levels and at times to people with animalistic consciousness. It is uncanny but the favourite weapon of the pishach is the people closest to you!

Pishach ensures that you move away from your Guru and trust crooks. It does so gradually by feeding on your negative emotions and negative thought process, showing unreality as reality and avidya as vidya. As you become negative and weak, pishach will gain strength.  You will remain perpetually sick and/or attached to vices, drifting away from spiritual people and moving towards so-called spiritual people, taking unreality and maya as the final goal and drowning your soul. It is actually unbelievable how it would gradually change your persona and you would not even notice it.

The only way out is to find a Guru, hold his/her hand tight. Whenever you get the first negative thought about him/her, even after experiencing the subtler dimensions, understand it’s the pishach at play. Do not hold onto any negative thought as that will weaken you and strengthen the pishach and would destroy you ultimately.

As yugas devolve, the effect of the negative forces increase in the environment. As pollution increases, so does the population of the negative entities. At the time of Satyug, positive forces were at their peak. In Treta, the negative began increasing its influence. In Dwapar, negative increased its tentacles and began to take control of the beings of that yug. In Kaliyug, that is now, the negative completely controls, the positive forces are minimal, dharma has been forgotten and a unique trait is that the Guru has become a businessman. Only those who will stick to the principles of the Vedas will be able to get release, rest all would be born as insects or plants in the next Mahayug.

In the present yug, negative entities in the form of bhoots, pretas and pishach, are in majority. These entities were once humans, corrupt humans, living and thriving on evil, now continuing the same…Maximum people in this yug, when they leave their bodies, due to the lack of good karma do not get another body and there is a waiting period in hell, so they go into these kinds of yonis and such people are aplenty, so are these kinds of beings, so watch out… Bhoots, pretas and pishach are all over. Avoid negative thoughts and negative people completely.

Favourite spots of Pishach
Clubs, bars, discotheques, gyms,
gossiping people, heavy foods and
fights. It derives energy
from all this.
Pishach avoids
Guru, real spiritual places,
yagyas, dhyan places and satsangs.
It loses energy here.
Pishach can easily control
People who are already
tamasik by nature or who lack
inner strength, who can be
manipulated easily; often children
or who trust anyone easily.
Pishach is against
People who are close to God,
people who spread positivity and divinity,
because it’s poison for the pishach.
