The ability to cause an astral projection or "ghost" to stay on the astral plane, usually in one specific place. A sub-power of Astral Manipulation. Not to be confused with Mediumship

Also Called

  • Astral Imprisonment
  • Ghost Trapping


The user can banish ghosts or spirits. Can prevent a ghost from manifesting and prevent an astral projector from entering their body, they have the ability to force ghosts on or off their plane of existence. Can sense a possessed individual, or a "devil-in-flesh", and can remove the invader-spirit.

With practice and experience, can summon such spirits in their true form, as physical manifestations, and banish them just as well.

Typically, this power is a bi-product of Magic, or Psionic powers.
