Egregores – an overview


Let me tell you a little about egregores.

An Egregore is a kind of “spiritual” being which is created, usually by a group of people often the imagination is in the form of gossip and rumour: “Have you heard about so-and-so? I heard they are untrustworthy” ect…….

After a while, the amount of gossip, thought and will is so strong that a “being” is created that floats in the vicinity of the person being “talked about” it takes form, and can even influence the person – like a demon sitting on their shoulder after a while, if they get stronger, they can enter the person’s head and “possess them”

The only way to get rid of an egregore is through an exorcism
There are two main methods of weapons

1. Truth – seek out objective truth and evidence for the “claims made”

2. conscious ignorance – starve them of their food: rumour and gossip

Method 2 Lets say someone says to me: “Mary is a really nasty person”.
My exorcism method is to say: “I refuse to listen to that until I meet Mary or myself.”

Egregores have tangible reality, like poltergeists and astral remnants (their astral remains) of departed souls seek them out and can use them to extend their “life” on earth – clairvoyants can see them more and more these days.

Egregores when strong enough – fed by enormous amounts of sustained rumour and gossip can eventually take over or possess a person, or at least drain them of their motivation and energy.

This can, of course, all be taken metaphorically, though the root of egregores is claimed as “paranormal”. Egregores are believed by some to be tangible “entities” which can impact on material outcomes. They have a similarity to poltergeists in terms of being able to effect material from a non-material place. Egregores are built collectively, invested with “power” from collective thought, feeling and will. We can build an egregore positively or negatively. We can create an egregore as a kind of “demon” of another person, we literally “demonise” them as the negative being we have conjured up can even influence and even “possess” the one we are demonising, They literally become the demon we have created, often because they feel so influenced by it, weakened by it, allowing self-doubt to start to take hold.

So, on one hand, an egregore can be a brand, a shared totem or symbol, a hero figure; it can also be a negative picture of another person, group, or even community. Egregores tend to only come into being when they are formed specifically, not just generally, stereotypically; they come into being when we literally create them with enough specific attributes to take specific form.

Egregores are thought beings created by rumour and gossip. They also arise from the creation of caricatures of people. Egregores arise through the sharing between often a closed group of people of thoughts and feelings, which do not match reality. They build up a demonic picture of the other person which they feed with their own self-conversation and inner group falsehood.

For example, if we constantly spread the rumour that someone is unreliable and untrustworthy, there soon comes into being an egregore of mistrust and unreliability, which accompanies the person who is being  described. The evidence usually doesn’t match up, so they pretend to rely on their own and each other’s already contaminated “instincts”

Eventually, if the rumour and gossip continue, the egregore can become so strong it is hard to get rid of. It can even come to partly possess the person.

Egregores come in all shapes and sizes and are only limited by the human imagination.

Egregores soon disappear if we make a choice to ignore them. They can also be combated with truth – we try to correct the falsehood.

Egregores of groups, organisation, even nations and races can be created, to detrimental effect.

So, egregores feed on: gossip, rumour, fabrication, lying, and exaggeration.

The methods of excorcism: conscious choice to ignore and, of course, TRUTH based on evidence that takes in ALL points of view and experience, not just those that feed the egregore.

  1. Steve, I agree.

    This is a bit of a tongue in cheek look that I used in a dialogue with some senior managers in organisations. It’s a very incomplete view of egregores.
