From a spiritual perspective, a spirit portal is believed to be an opening or gateway between the physical and spiritual realms. It is believed that portals and the energetic vortex connected with them feed spirits and entities.
Some people believe such portals can allow negative entities or energies to enter our physical realm, which can cause harm or disturbance.
If you close a spirit portal, you remove the haunting’s “battery” and banish the haunting. You don’t have to deal directly with the spirit or entity, which can be great if they are negative.
You can make this ritual as complicated as you want, but it is a very straightforward process. I have read articles about complicated rituals, but I don’t find this necessary. The magic lies in the intent, not the ritual itself.
If you believe that there is a spirit portal that needs to be closed, follow this step-by-step guide.

#1: Locate the portal
First of all, you need to locate the portal. Psychic sweeps are a common method, along with dowsing tools. Even if tools are commonly used, psychics have the most success pinpointing portals. This is because sites often have electrical wiring that might throw the scan off.
A psychic scans the site and returns to the paranormal team with hot spots. The team might do an additional EMF reading or scan the area with dowsing rods.

Pendulums, compasses, dowsing rods, and EMF meters are common tools for locating portals. If a pendulum moves erratically, the dowsing rods start to spin, or the compass acts strange, it might indicate a portal. Cross-reference psychic readings and hits from gadgets and tools is always a good idea.

#2: Set your intention
When you locate the portal, it is essential to approach it with confidence. Start by setting your intention to close the portal. Visualize the portal closing and imagine all negative energies or entities being banished from your space.
The key is to believe in your power to close it. It is all in how you perceive your authority and agency to close it.
#3: Use protective measures
Before attempting to close the portal, it’s essential to protect yourself from any negative energies that may be present. You can do this by lighting a white candle, burning sage or other cleansing herbs, or using protective crystals like black tourmaline or obsidian.
Regardless of what manifestations you might experience, you need to stand firm and believe in your power to close it. If you are dealing with negative energies, they might try to manipulate you not to close it. Remember, when you close it, they feed off the vortex and lose much of their power.
It is not uncommon for negative energies to manifest as children when they feel frightened by you. They know they have the best chances to play your feelings thing way.

#4: Call upon spiritual guides or entities
Many spiritual traditions believe in the existence of guides or entities who can help you in your spiritual endeavors. You can call upon these beings for assistance in closing the portal. Examples of such entities include angels, spirit guides, or ancestors.
#5: Use visualization and intention
To close the portal, you can use visualization and intention. Imagine that the portal is closing, and all negative energies or entities are being sealed. You can imagine the portal as a bright light or rip in a fabric. Imagine how you close it, and all the light disappears,
You can also use affirmations to reinforce your intention, such as “I am closing this portal. No spirits or entities are hereby allowed to pass through, attach to it, or use it as an energy source. The portal is no more.”
#6: Seal the portal
To complete the process, you can seal the portal using a physical object like a crystal or a symbol like a pentacle. Place the object or symbol at the portal’s location and imagine it sealing the gateway.

There is no way to close a portal, but the essence is always intent, regardless of your belief system. You can create your ritual if you want to. But you have to believe with whole your heart that you are capable of closing the portal to be successful.
It is good to remember that a specific religion or belief does not bind spirits and entities; humans have created these systems to find peace and structure in our lives. The demonic is the same in all religions, even if we might refer to them with different names. It is a universal force of darkness, as there are universal forces of light as well.
If you feel uncomfortable or unsafe dealing with spiritual matters, it may be best to seek the guidance of a trusted spiritual advisor or practitioner.
