Hauntings are Terrifying When...

For those who believe, ghosts can be an intriguing aspect of the paranormal world. They can also be a terrifying aspect of the natural world, specifically for those who might have to live in the same house as a ghost. Sometimes, ghostly hauntings are so intense they make believers out of non-believers. Sometimes, ghosts are so faint that even the most adept and in-tune psychic can't pick up on their energy waves. And sometimes, the hauntings go beyond a "normal" ghost haunting a building...sometimes they can escalate, become violent, and cause harm. In these extreme cases, we have to examine all means of recourse.

Sometimes they are what is called a "demonic haunting" or "attachment". No matter your definition of a demon, one thing is for certain: demons are negative spirits or energy of some kind that can manifest themselves in harmful and terrifying ways. Some of these "demons" are even bent on destroying the positive aspects of life around them: love, happiness, and human life in general. So no matter where the demons come from or what a person's belief may say about them, the point is to eradicate a demonic haunting as soon as it is recognized. Why? Because these can go beyond just a "haunting" and cross the proverbial veil into attachments and even possession of human beings.

The first step in removing a demon from a particular place such as a home or workplace is to recognize the signs.

The feeling of something sitting on your chest or choking you during sleep or upon waking could indicate a demonic haunting.

Signs It's a Demonic Haunting

When demonic hauntings first begin in a home or place, the signs can be subtle and may mimic those of your average, run-of-the-mill ghost. You might experience one or more of the following:

  • Strange sounds: footsteps, doors opening and closing, whispers, faint screams or moaning, white noise, or electronic interference.
  • Strange sights: shadows in your peripheral vision, flickering lights and electronics, objects seeming to switch places/positions when your back is turned, figures in the dark, etc.
  • Strange feelings: a feeling of being watched, a feeling that something is "wrong", feeling like someone has been in your house or building, inexplicable wafts of cold air, goosebumps, and the feeling of being touched by an invisible hand.
  • Strange smells: perfume, food smells, sulfur, and bad odors.

As the demon gains energy and begins to manifest more easily, all of these signs will increase and intensify, and you might also begin to experience these things:

  • recurrent nightmares on a weekly or nightly basis, depending upon the severity
  • phantom-mania: a feeling of being held down in bed, and then upon waking, discovering unexplained bruises or scratches on one's body
  • a general feeling of discomfort or dread, not being able to fully settle down in one's own home or environment
  • negativity between family members or friends increases and lead to arguments, fights, and general discord
  • a spirit begins to show itself to a member of the home or environment. Often, these demons center their focus on one particular person and this can sometimes be a child. They will appear to a child often as a nice entity. If an otherwise normal child becomes withdrawn and has an "imaginary friend," this is a BIG sign
  • religious objects will be destroyed or inexplicably lost, e.g. crucifix, bible, rosaries, etc.
  • entire homes or rooms are ransacked, though nothing has been taken
  • you find writing on walls or other places in the building

Signs will differ depending on the severity of the haunting and he type of demon that has attached itself to the household or property. Keeping a log or journal of all of the experiences will possibly help in identifying the type of haunting you have.

Signs It's Gone Beyond a "Haunting" (Has Become an Attachment or Possession)

Unfortunately and quite often, when a demon is inhabiting a home or building of some sort, the situation can be fueled by other people. It is a vicious cycle in that the demon brings negativity that triggers people's fears, then the negativity that emanates from these people feeds the demon more energy. Because of this cycle, the demonic haunting can turn into an attachment and sometimes it can even turn into a full-blown possession, depending on whether or not the demon is able to influence one particular person, and sometimes more than one person.

You will know when it has gone beyond a haunting into something more powerful and dangerous by noticing one or more of the following signs with at least one person in your household:

  • Withdrawal: the person under influence of this demon might start to pull away from his/her family in a social as well as physical manner. The person becomes withdrawn and is less wont to speak to family members about things they might have before.
  • Anger/Resentment: the person might show out-of-nowhere signs of emotional intensity, usually in the form of anger or resentment towards his/her family.
  • Lack of Interest in Once-Loved Activities: the person will also withdraw themselves from regular activities that they once enjoyed, e.g. hobbies, academics, family quality time, etc.
  • Recurrent Nightmares and Night Terrors: the person will experience recurrent nightmares, often accompanied by "night terrors" in that the person is scared of the dark and may scream upon waking.
  • Unexplained Marks on the Body: the person might have scratch marks, bite marks, and bruises on his/her body in places that he/she could not inflict upon him/herself.
  • Interest in the Occult/Black Magic: he/she might have taken a sudden interest in the occult, particularly in necromancy or black magic.
  • Unexplained Illness and Weakness: he/she might become inexplicably ill and/or visibly weak of body and mind. Signs and symptoms might include weight loss, hair loss, change in skin tone, loss of appetite, vomiting, and loss of energy.

How do you know if it has gone from a haunting to an attachment and then further progressed into a full-blown possession? I expect you will know when it is possession, as the person will no longer be him/herself in any regard. The voice will change and they will throw fits of a supernatural power. Now's the time to call a priest or someone who is deemed able to handle such a dangerous and dark situation.

Just remember: you can stop it from progressing! Do not feed into negativity in the household, and get the person help when you see the first signs. Do not wait until it gets worse and worse!

Often, demons will act as though they were once humans in a past life. This is a lie.

Things That Attract Demons and Demonic Hauntings

So let's answer the question: what is a demon? In the most simplest explanation, it is a negative spirit or entity that has never lived a human existence. This doesn't mean they haven't tried.

Putting aside any religious thoughts on the matter, we can simply agree that these beings do exist on some level of our world. And unfortunately, they are often attracted to certain places and people for certain reasons.

Things That Attract Demons to a Place:

  • Murder/Suicide: any form of violent death that has occurred in a particular place will generate enough negative energy to possibly attract negative beings.
  • Black Magic: any place that has been used in black magic rituals of any kind is an open door for negative beings to come through and potentially linger. If a group of people participated in these rituals, it is even more of a magnet for demonic entities.
  • Multiple Deaths: any place that has seen multiple deaths can attract demonic hauntings. Remember, negative entities feed off of negativity.
  • Recurrent Negativity: any place where negative people dwell, if the negativity is strong enough and lasts long enough, can generate enough energy to draw the attention of negative entities.

Things That Attract Demons to People:

  • Dabbling in the Occult: sometimes simply dabbling in the occult without protecting oneself or knowing what one is doing will attract a demon, e.g. playing with a ouija board, tarot cards, or pendulums.
  • Performing Black Magic: not just dabbling in the occult, but actually diving head first into the world of black magic most definitely will open a portal for negative things to come through, particularly if you are performing rituals with a group.
  • Obsession With Death: a person who obsesses over death might be wont to attract a demon, e.g. traipsing around a cemetery, performing a séance, visiting haunted places, researching death and murder scenes, etc.
  • Depression/Anxiety: people who are deeply depressed have a low/weak aura about them can attract more negativity, including demons.
  • Drug Use/Abuse: a person who uses drugs on a regular basis open themselves up to demonic attachment. Why is this? Because drugs deplete your physical, mental, and spiritual energy, leaving you weak enough to allow lower level entities to feed on your energy (or what's left of it).

    Honeybhelpful - Yes the smudging can help if illness is caused by negative energy...because illness IS caused by negative energy in one form or another. And yes, if the spirit has its claws in you, so to speak, you might feel weakened after leaving it. Break that tie.

    Thank you, Nicole. Will the smudging also work if illnesses are caused by negative energy? I ask because there are a lot of days when I don't feel well yet, I'm told by several doctors that I'm perfectly healthy. Also, can negative energy or evil spirits make you feel anxious or ill when you leave the home and better when you come back?

    Thanks again,

    honeybhelpful - you need to smudge your home. Then bless it with oil or holy water. Look up how to smudge your home. Don't forget to open windows/doors to let out the negative spirits/shadows. Good luck.

    Hello All,

    Please forgive the long comment. I have never written about this subject before and find it difficult to type this post. But here it goes:

    I live with my mother, sister and her daughter. My mother is disabled, my sister suffered a brain injury over a decade ago and my niece acts out. We also have people outside the home that's trying to take advantage of my sister's disability. There's lots of discord in our home. For example, my sister lashes out mainly at me, saying some of the most hateful things I never pictured her saying before her injury, tries to attack me and so on. Part of me believes that her injury and depression causes her to do this. However, she only started acting this way a few years ago and she picks who she targets. Also, she doesn't even sound the same when she has one of her "temper tanturms". Her voice changes going up and down in volume, tone etc. It can go from her normal voice to high pitched, to her even making growling or roar sounds from time to time.

    It's not just disagreements either. Other weird events have happened in my home such as seeing shadows out of the corner of my eye, thinking that I saw the bottom half of my mother sitting in my sister's room when she was in the den, feeling like I was grabbed at one point and time hearing footsteps. Also a picture fell of the wall with no one touching, the front door making noise as if someone was there (but they are not). Additionally, my mother reported that she has seen things that shouldn't be there, a bag moving on its own, my older niece (not the one I live with), and mother have heard footsteps as well and I have woken up with scratches, on rare occasions. I don't know if it makes a difference or not, but we live in an area that close by many graveyards and I didn't have any of these problems at my old home, which wasn't near any graveyards.

    I tried to find a logical explanations for every event that has occurred. For instance, I thought that I was seeing shadows out of the corner of my eye because of the meds I was taking. However, I stopped taking those meds two years ago and I still see something in my peripheral vision from time to time. The only medication I take now is Tylenol for pain. Then I figured that it could be the fact that I don't get enough sleep, the stress of being a caregiver etc. In short, I thought I was losing my mind. However, I have been to several doctors and was told that I'm perfectly healthy.

    The only problem that I do have is panic disorder because of the stress I'm under. I don't take meds for the condition unless its a serious attack. For instance, I took once last year when my father died, once when my mom had to have major surgery a day after his funeral, and once in December when I had another attack. I haven't taken anything since except for natural treatments such as oils, tea, meditation, exercise etc.

    I'm a relgious person that believe God and angel exists. I also believe that the devil and fallen angels/demons exist. However, I'm not so sure about ghosts. I'm also the type of person that looks for logical answers. However, some events I'm having a hard time explaining.

    So, I'm trying to figure out if all these events are due to stress, structural issues with the home (the front door making noise) negative energy in the home evil spirits etc. If it is negative energy what can I do? The only thing I can think of is to remove myself from the situation altogether.

    Thank you,

    If anyone needs help I can give you direction on how to rid them or if you feel them inside you I can help you get them out through deliverance prayer.

    Signs u have spirits in you- fear, bouts of dizzyness, weakness or confusions. vibratory feelings, phantom pain, intrusive thoughts, overwhelming fear, voices or whispers inside your mind, addictions, sickness that comes and goes, seizures, tics, restlessness, depression, anxiety, panic attacks. loss of time, black outs, scary visions, scratches & bruises, Fibromyalgia, digestive issues, skin flair ups, Migraines. Overwhelming feelings like jealousy, anger, rage, lust. Mental disorders like schizophrenia, autism, ocd, alters, eating dis. ect. Demons are liars & out to torment us & deceive us into thinking these thoughts and feelings are ours. When we come to Jesus we are saved but we are not automatically delivered, thats why he gave us power to help each other. Its repeated MANY MANY times in the bible how Jesus cast out demons and he told us to preach Gods Word, Cast out demons and heal each other, because demons cause sickness. Deliverance requires a serious approach, obedience and humility to GOD. I will pray for you through the power & the authority of Jesus. Deliverance is for those WHO BELIEVE in JESUS, if you reject him he will reject you, thats just the way it is. I will send you some verses to read & some easy directions, ten we will pray online. You must ask for forgiveness & forgive all others, UNforgiveness gives demons legal rights to you and your home. Forgiving ia a choice from your free will, its not an emotion. Deliverance requires a commitment to Jesus and stop sinning! and if your just looking for a quick fix, dont ask because it could be more dangerous for you! Demons are evil wicked beings, Once you kick them out they are in torment and will become vengeful and angry. They will watch you and wait for you to mess up & sin and can come back 7xs worse. Read Mark 11 “When an evil spirit comes out of a man, it goes through dry places seeking rest & find none. Then it says, ‘I will return to my house’ 25When it arrives, it finds the house swept clean and orderly. 26Then it goes and gets 7 spirits more wicked, and go in & live there. And the final condition of that person is worse than the first.”

    Thats why you have to fill those vacancies with Gods Spirit and be protected. Spirits are around us all, everywhere, but there is NOTHING TO FEAR when you are w JESUS. He has all power over the the devil and he gives his followers that Power. Write me tell me whats up, dianegeph612@gmail.com I will respond in 24 hours, I pray deliverance prayer online via Google or skype. I do this from my own free time, in Trust and through my Faith, so please be considerate of my time and follow though if you want my help Be Blessed in Jesus

    @ Joseph costa621 I feel you/feel for you. I also worry so much about my pets. They have not fared very well. Be sure to pray for protection over yours and commend them to God.

    @Milu9090 Parvo is a disease that unless utterly cleaned out over the period of YEARS will continue to kill, and unfortunately there isn't any way to disinfect a yard. WHY are you still putting dogs out there and keeping them there? Parvo is a horrible way to die! Obviously they don't even have a Parvo vaccination, so in essence you are sentencing them to death as soon as they step out into your yard. For them, and for yourself, please STOP.

    I have been living in a complete state of demonic possession for YEARS. To begin, I had a wonderful job, beautiful things (clothes, cars) was very attractive, had a kind grandmother who after my mom died, raised me. Had the most wonderful man in my life ... then all of a sudden in a matter of months my life flip-flopped. My grandmother had begun suffering from Dementia and succumbed to it. She always wanted to die in her house, not in a hospital so we accommodated that with the help of her doctor and Hospice. When it was her time, she died here. A little bit before that however, my fiance was involved in a car accident and passed away. Shortly after these losses, my dogs began fighting among themselves and one bit me while trying to separate them. The kitchen caught fire, the garage flooded. My son began acting up, picking on his skin and not being able to sleep. One night a policewoman knocked on my door and said one of my cars had been involved in a car accident. I immediately thought someone had stolen one and taken it for a joy-ride and crashed, but no. A rogue tow truck driver, out of all the houses where I live, lost control of a tow truck and crashed into my driveway destroying one of my cars and severely damaging another. The garage door was destroyed. The daughter of a neighbor saw everything and gave a statement to the police, but her mom didn't want her to get involved, and the next day the tow truck's owner reported it as stolen. I only had liability on my cars since I had three cars, and the insurance would not cover them. The house insurance would not cover it either. We got a mouse and rat infestation, then a big roach infestation, fleas, gnats, mosquitoes. It was unreal. I lost my job of THIRTEEN years ... the house began to spring leaks in all the toilets and faucets, windows would break without us knowing how or why. We had big house flies invade. No matter how much we cleaned, or who we hired to come in and clean, the house seemed to get unnaturally dirty all the time. Light bulbs would just stop working. I began to feel very ill and depressed. I was diagnosed with severe anemia, and my son with depression. We'd fight all the time and yell and scream at each other. My son even tried to hit me. I lost it. I basically lost my mind. I was sure someone had hexed me. I relegated myself to my bed for almost a year. My house went into foreclosure but at the ast minute the bank issued something called a Forgiveness Letter and I was able to keep it, but it was a mess. Dirty, dark. My closets with all my gorgeous clothes and handbags were filled with mold and everything was covered in mold. One of my dogs had a seizure and basically became retarded. Our other dog died and the vets could not detect why. I was reported to Adult Protective Services and they came and cleaned my house out - basically gutted the place. All my once-gorgeous clothes, handbags, and shoes - gone. The most striking thing was my appearance. I had always taken care of myself. I was thin, had long hair which I colored blonde. I am now outrageously fat (without really eating - but then again I have 8 fibroids which need to be operated on and removed) and my hair was so tangled and matted I had to cut it all off. I look like a little troll monster. My son has fared no better. We really have no place to move to or go. It is a nightmare. people from different churches have told up to get out of the house, that they can feel something in here. One such church attempted praying for it, but it only became worse. Our bathrooms are disgusting - there is water all over the floor in some places of the house from unknown leaks. Oh, one of the electrical sockets in an empty room caught fire and started burning the wall (we caught it in time). EVERYTHING breaks down (fans, lamps, microwaves, pretty much anything electrical). We have no A/C or washing machine/dryer because they immediately stop working. We've seen shadows, one of a man. My son has seen things running up the wall. I've heard my son call out to me, and vice versa, when we actually don't. Any little thing sets us off at each other even though we KNOW what is going on. It's almost as if we can't help ourselves. It's just horrific and I have no idea what to do, as again, we really have no place left to go.

    For all those who are superstitious, it is always good to also consider rational explanations for things in addition to those of superstitious origins. Supersition is what we perceive, but it is not what we are actually like. Science can in many cases disprove many superstitions or give superior reasons as to why it may be. When a person dies, for example, you may sense it because you are aware of it. If you didn't know it happened and completely ignored or cast out the existence of demons they would have no way to enter your soul. Therefore, perhaps the key is to ensure that the demons cannot find a way in. I became extremely psychotic one time and began panicking over demons and felt like I was making everyone around me go insane, but then I studied science and evidence and felt somewhat more secure. The problem with mental issues is that it literally alters your perception of everything on earth, and makes you perceive demons. Science is the key to true understanding because it uses reason and is fundamentally based upon the act of listening to all sides equally. Science can even prove why psychics think the things they do. Many people have mental issues which allow for them to fail, and in many ways mental problems alter your perception and cause you to be in a different state of mind from those who are around you, therefore causing you to be "possessed". In believing in God and/or the existence of a higher power there is peace, or at least that's how I feel, even though there is no evidence of such. Another problem is that sometimes it is best to shut your mouth. I feel that I mayve caused many demons to infect my mind because I write too much and in doing so allow for myself to panic at the thought of whether what I said is correct or not and that I fear I may be a demon myself because I have been severely emotionally abused and I tried to commit suicide several different times but didn't because I only ever tried to just get by, when I *should* be focusing on cracking the problem directly. I am trying to break the habit I have, and I write this as a testament and as a means to help you all break your habits too. I may be wrong in what I say, but I believe it at this moment and therefore I will leave it here.

    soooo for the past 4 years we have had a thing follow us throughout our houses. The first sign of "it" was seen standing behind my mother in a mirror.. (oh and keep in mind my mothers side of the family is super religious especially my grandma) the sounds started soon after we saw "it" in the mirror. First it was just knocking. It always comes in threes. Some are loud and some are just quiet little whispers on a knock. So we moved. In the new house we were told AFTER moving in ,by the homeowner, that her husband (80's) died in the back room. I have three little siblings and my second to youngest one (3 at the time) told my mother and I that there was an old man in the closet asking when my family was going to leave. This was bad enough for me I was pretty scared so every night I prayed to god to bless the house but it didn't seem to work because it got worse and worse. I set my phone out at night to record the sounds and the voice that yelled "get out" but when I came back 10 minutes later to check it out my phone was completely drained. so I tried again and picked up the noises. There were dishes breaking and a woman sobbing in our kitchen. But it wasn't just a cry it was a scream and at the end of her crying she would always make this gagging noise as if she were getting choked .. shortly after around the holidays things started suddenly disappearing and turning up in random places that we knew none of the kids could reach. One incident was when my mom and dad left the house with only me and my sisters staying there alone @ 3 am. When they came back my dad asked me "where's my phone" I said I didn't know, only to find out that it had somehow gotten from the kitchen to underneath my body under my blankets.. this scared me because like did I get moved? In order for it to be under me? not even a couple months later we moved.. it only got worse. It followed us as usual. In our most recent house it threw things at the door like my little brothers toys and pillows and chairs. Not only that but it's starting to mimic my mothers voice. Calling my or my dad upstairs as if trying to get us alone.. my little sisters are terrified and they see "it". My little brother (2) got thrown down the stairs and the only thing he could say is that "she did it" I'm afraid that it's not multiple things like I thought it to be , but one entity , demon, of such that changes form. I read that demons mimic and change into food entity's around animals so that they can't be detected ??? I have a cat and when ever these noises occur he doesn't budge.

    Recently my dad has been not himself.. he said been mean towards ME and I don't even live with him. He's my stepdad. I live with my real dad. Jsyk. I visit my mother and this is when it happens. Anyways, my stepdad cheated on my mom and ever since then he's been having horrid dreams and he'll wake up at 3 am every morning yelling and he'll walk around in the dark.. before we moved out of the previous house , there was a swarm of bees that would always make a huge hive where ever he was??? I don't know if this means something but they even formed on the back of his car in one night ..???? I'm confused but I don't think it's normal.. fast forward into the present we live in a small ranch house on the tiniest ranch ever but here, it feels as if there is nothing. It feels great and I'm (used to) not be scared to go anywhere in the house by myself... until yesterday. My mom has suspicions of my dad cheating again and she was crying a lot. She went into the shower after she calmed down and she wasn't crying anymore.. but something else was. I heard it outside my window??? I don't know if it possible for it to be outside but it was super faint. that's not all tho. My mom came back and layed on the bed and started to freak because she said she saw the same tall dark haired woman run passed the window as she did in the other house...

    last night we were laying down and I was asleep. But my mom woke up at 4am and she heard a small moan from a child. So faint she could barely hear it but it happens twice. Then clicking then knocking then a dark shadow type started to fill the room and I woke up and saw this. The room became super dark all of the sudden and I've been up ever since. I think the negative energy is bringing it back. But I'm not sure. Just now when my mom left I found my grandfathers necklace that he gave me (a cross) on the floor . Without the chain and I can't find the chain and after reading this piece ^^^^^ it said that it could destroy religious things. Im almost positive this is more than a haunting and I believe it's getting stronger. No one believes me though. and I'm sure they never will so I don't know what to do anymore. I thinks "it"is back.

    i ended up moving. the final straws were the weird clawing noises above my room and constantly hearing my dog cry for help in various rooms inside and outside even once i had him away from the house because he became so terrified. so he wasn't there. also someone kept knocking on my door the same sounding 3 knocks without anyone to be seen outside. the water damage with no leaks found by professionals, and being in the neighborhood of a psych ward as well as two suicides on the same street...i really didn't want to find out what was going on in that area. carbon monoxide and mold were ruled out supposedly.

    About 2 years ago I started having nightmares. One in particular really creeps me out. It was about this tall demon. It had no nose, mouth, or ears, just black pits for eyes. It attacked me and I woke up praying and gasping for air. A week later one of my twins, who was 6 at the time told me about a dream she had. She told me it had no face except for black eyes n broken wings and her n I were the only ones that seen it. About a year ago she started freaking out if the lights were off. She said when the lights went off the shadows came out and they would watch us. I later found out my sister and her ex used to mess with ouija boards in that room. My now 8y.o and I were the only one that ever had any experiences.

    Damianz mommy - You need to do a smudging of your house. Google how to do one. Use white sage, don't forget to open a window or two during the process. Don't feed into it with fear. Try not to acknowledge the things it's doing.

    Ok so my family and I are very scared. My dad passed away may 5th 2017 in a nursing home. It is now june 15th 2017. And strange things have been happening and I cant explain it. Like the other night I saw it look like something sitting in front of my son's door and my son is 4 years old. And I turn the light and nothing was there. So I ignored it and went to bed. And then my son has been waking up in the middle of the night screaming very scared I thought maybe he seen my dads ghost or something and we do have my dad's ashes in the house. but no he saying it's scaring him and then he looks at the closet... and I tell him to explain it to me in during the daytime and he takes me to the back of the closet and knocks on it and then says Roar... And i ask him baby what does this scary thing look like.... He scrunches his face like an old man. I show him a picture of his grandpa i asked him is this him? He got really scared and said thats him thats him.... But my dad loved my son very he would never scare my son.... So i fear that its a demon or somethin playin like its my dad. I took holy water last night and went all around the house asking God to bless this and remove any bad and unwanted spirits feom the home.... And put a rosary in my sons room... But he slept with us last night... Woke up this morning to make my husbands lunch and the picture of him and i was literally taken out of the frame ect. Very scary even scared my husband!!! I dont know what to do!!! And my son keeps tellin me something is knocking then says roar.... Its really scaring me. I dont know what to do!!!

    So, I have a small problem!! The last few weeks have been unique. There has been a lot of movement persay around my household. Then the doors of my upstairs rooms were being opened and slammed. I payed no nevermind to it. Then my son came home from school, he yelled out who's upstairs. Of course this kinda peaked my interest. So I went to the stairs and as a joke yelled if there is anything up there open the door. Thinking to myself haha going to freak my son out big mistake. The door opened wide as my son started looking up the stairs. So I yelled out if there is something up there shut the door my son and I stood watching up the stairs my daughter's bedroom door slammed shut. After that it was almost never ending opening and slamming of the bedroom doors upstairs. But the problem I'm having is that my husband and I are going through a separation, which has caused myself some depression and a whole lot of anxiety. I have severe mood swings and really bad outbursts of anger towards my husband. I can't seem to control my anger, and lately have not been able to even get out of bed and go to work which I absolutely love my job. Although my husband and I are going through this every time he is in the house nothing is arie. So now he has to be here as offten as possible because I am scared to death. He thinks that I'm crazy But everyone else in the house has seen this. Could these two issues be connected?? Or really am I just crazy??

    Finally I find a place where I can relate, no matter who I tell my family friends, no one believes me. This house I've been renting out for 4 months now is something in here. I can hear huge cracks sound above my had when I'm watching tv or if I walk to my bathroom, I'll hear a huge crack above me like someone is watching my every move. At first I thought I was just hearing things until cold wind started brushing against my face, daytime night time doesn't matter, it's like something is in front of my face blowing cold air. Not real hard but a small breeze out of no where , no windows or ac open in my house. After I did research, I figured some demon is on to me. But to make sure I'm not going crazy, I have a ladder, checked the attic, NOTHiNg. Empty up there. My dog barks sometimes and stare back and forth as if he is seeing something move. I'm like what is it boy? He growls. I bought sage, and the walls start knocking faint knocks and the huge crack sounds above my head every room I enter. It freaks me out because whatever it is made me into a believer because if it's not a demon, it's def. something INVISIBLe I can't see it but it can see me. Also, every now and than I get this loud tingling high pitch noise from either my left or right ear. Freaky. Does someone here believe me and can relate? I'm a successful music producer so I'm not sure why me lol. I'm 26, someone help give me and idea. My dad, mom and little sis always come up with an excuse for me which make me mad like ahhh . When they come over , nothing happened as if the demons don't want them to know what I'm saying is true, when they leave , bam like aha, ur crazy. Someone help please I hate to go to the last step by finding a priest but I'm thinking ok it's been 4 months , all they do is make noises and blow cold air at me.

    Hi, Ive been through torment with evil spirits for years. I thought I was crazy, was attack mentally and physically. Saw evil spirits, heard voices, & was fearful for years. Until I cried out to God and turned my Life around. Now I live for Jesus and he has given US authority & power in his name, over ALL demon spirits. Read luke 10:19 & Mark 16:17-18. Come to find out I had the gift of discerning of spirits. I can see into the spirit realm and I now have a deliverance ministry, casting out Demons in Jesus name. If anyone needs help I can give you direction on how to rid them or if you feel them inside you (no shame) I can help you get them out through deliverance prayer. EVERYONE except Jesus has at least a couple of spirits in them. They are sneaky and hide and make you think thats a part of you, Signs u have spirits in you- bouts of dizzyness, weakness or confusions. vibratory feelings, traveling phantom pain, intrusive thoughts, overwhelming fear, voices or whispers inside your mind, addictions, sickness that comes and goes, seizures, tics, restlessness, depression, anxiety, panic attacks. Overwhelming feelings like jealousy, anger, rage, lust, ocd, autism, anorexia ect. Demons are liars & out to torment us and trick us into thinking these thoughts and feelings are ours. When we come to Jesus we are saved but we are not automatically delivered, thats why he gave us power to help each other. Its repeated MANY MANY times in the bible how Jesus cast out demons and he told us to preach Gods Word, Cast out demons and heal each other, because demons cause sickness. (no shame) Deliverance requires a serious approach, obedience and humility to GOD. I will pray for you through the power & the authority of Jesus. Deliverance is ONLY for those WHO BELIEVE in JESUS, if you reject him he will reject you, thats just the way it is. First I will send you some verses to read & some direction for prayer you must do first on your own. You must ask for forgiveness first and forgive all others, UNforgiveness against others give demons legal rights to you and your home. Forgiving others is a choice from your free will, its not an emotion. Deliverance requires a commitment to Jesus, and if your just looking for a quick fix, dont ask because it could be more dangerous for you! Demons are evil wicked beings, Once you kick them out they are in torment and will become vengeful and angry. They will watch you and wait for you to mess up & sin and can come back 7xs worse. Read Mark 11 “When an evil spirit comes out of a man, it goes through dry places seeking rest & find none. Then it says, ‘I will return to my house’ 25When it arrives, it finds the house swept clean and orderly. 26Then it goes and gets 7 spirits more wicked, and go in & live there. And the final condition of that person is worse than the first.” Thats why you have to fill those vacancies with Gods Spirit and be protected. Spirits are around us all, everywhere, but there is NOTHING TO FEAR when you are w JESUS. He has all power over the the devil and he gives his followers that SAME Power. I was tormented by the devils, now they fear me in Jesus Name. Write me tell me whats up, Jesus and I will help you, no charge! dianegeph612@gmail.com I will respond in 72 hours, I pray deliverance prayer online via SKYPE. you will need to download if you dont have. Be Blessed in Jesus

    So I've had these dreams since I was a small child of a girl with long, messy black hair, a white gown, a pale face and black eyes watching me and threatening to kill my family if I didn't do what she wanted. So, I would wake up either crying, or sweating, and these dreams would carry on for until now.

    I see things at night, and I hear things. It's the same voice, and the same girl, just walking around me and my house.

    I talked to my best friend about it, and she says she has the same dream and experiences the same "symptoms", if you will.

    Now, I had gone to her house to go out hiking in the woods behind her house. It was snowing outside, and we had to be careful not to trip in the streams.

    There was a cozy little opening between some trees, so we had climbed in it and played some games before we started hiking.

    As I stepped out of the opening, I began to see people all around the area watching me. I knew these weren't people, as they were either extremely tall, or were distorted. I told her, and she said she saw the same things. I saw the girl, and so did she.

    The girl turned, and it seemed like she was running at me. I began to scream, and my friend and I started sprinting to her house. I swear I was pushed, and I fell into the stream. I looked behind us.

    Nothing was there.

    So she moved, and I went to her new house a few weeks ago.

    We went in her hot tub at about 12:00, and it was pitch black. She still had some woods behind her house.

    I looked around, and we saw the girl.

    I got pulled underwater, but I got back up, and my arm and back burned. I brushed it off, though, like nothing happened.

    Suddenly, we both, and all the rest of my friends who came with us, heard a little girl behind us saying "Hello, please come down here for a swim!" It sounded like the girl in my dreams. I looked forward, and we all saw the same girl staring blankly at us.

    We went on the deck, and tried to get in the house.

    I was left in the back of the line.

    When everyone was inside the house, the door closed when no one was touching it, and something pushed me down. I screamed and I felt myself being dragged across the deck, and the others saw it too. We all started screaming, and my leg was being dragged off of the deck and back into the hot tub. But my friend went outside and carried me into the house beforehand.

    We spent the night there, and the lights kept going on and off. I kept feeling burning on my body, and I had three scratches on my arm, neck, and back. So did the rest of my friends.

    We kept hearing singing from inside the boiler room, and tapping from inside the wall.

    At about 2:30, a cross fell of the wall.

    I don't know what is happening. Am I being followed, or am I being haunted by the ghost of a little girl? Or am I just seeing things? Do I have a sixth sense?

    Please help, I can't get a good explanation for this, and no one will believe me but the witnesses.

    So my wife and I along with our four kids just moved into a side by side. At first something felt a little off for maybe a couple of days but then things felt really good. Then a few things started to happen. We had a cup sitting on the counter that was about 3 inches from the edge that fell on the floor. Which I even took a level and checked to see if maybe the counter was a bit slanted. It isn't. Then my 12 year old sleeps in the basement because she doesn't want to sleep in the room with her younger sister because she wants her own space and she said she had her cell phone sitting on her dresser and when she was sleeping she was woken up by hearing her phone fall on the floor. And now my 5 yr old son is having what seems to be night terrors again of all of us dying. Now I'm 33 and have always been open and sensitive and be able to pick up on other people's feeling around me so what I don't get is why can't I pick up on what might be possibly here? Oh and also my 11 yr old son said that sometimes when he is in bed it sounds like someone is shaking his door. None of us have had a change in attitude or emotion since moving here beside being happier about being in a new place. Not sure if this is paranormal in any way or residual energy from the previous tenants. They did have a large family and the place took a couple months for the landlord to fix up. My mother will be coming in to sage regardless but I'd like to get anyone else's opinion on this situation.

    At my boyfriend's family's restaurant where his apartment also some seriously strange and scary things have been happening. It all started when he bought a home security system watch his apartment. It started out someone whistling when we would watch the footage and it progressed to hearing people speaking when no one was up there to catching a spirit or entity on the footage. I've never seen anything like it in my life. On the footage you see him walk across the room and then in the middle of the screen out of nowhere a girl appears, best way to describe what she looked like is she looked like the girl from the movie the ring(no joke). There's no humanly possible way it was a person, he was by himself in the restaurant. Then at my house something grabbed his hand one night, something touched my leg, and something sat down on the bed next to me. I could feel the bed sag down like someone sat there but there was nobody there. And now he's hearing footsteps in his attic almost every night. What is going on???? Is it something evil???

    Hi I have always been able too connect to the spirit world. Not so much now but I have been noticing strange things happening around me no matter where I go. My parents used to be interested in magick and had a habit of abusing drugs/alcohol. When I place something down I go to look for it a couple times but it's disappeared then someone else finds it where I last put it. I have crippling deppression and anxiety I see things that aren't there. I am always cold , itchy and I have a feeling of someone brushing there fingers against my skin and no one's there. I always feel as if I am being watched and I find marks on my body that weren't there before I went to bed. I have a habit of waking up in between 3:00 to 5:00 in the morning. I sometimes feel comforted by something that Isn't there. I also started to feel as if something is inside of me which is weird because I shouldn't know what that feels like...I might be haunted or something.

    I personally see a lot of spirits and ghosts, as I get older the ability fades. Recently I was sleeping in the back room on the second floor of our house with someone and I heard the sound of heavy footsteps dashing across our backyard deck. I was convinced we had been robbed, so I awoke the other person and quietly we went down to investigate. We found nothing, it had been raining and there was no footsteps or anything missing. So we went back to bed and I tried to fall asleep again since I have mild insomnia. A window opposite the bed which has a view of our backyard also overlooks the awning, it is possible to climb up the awning and then in the window. I suddenly hear the sound of one of the poles that support the awning rattling, this scared me even more. I dismissed it thinking maybe it was the wind and my imagination was tinkering with it. But then I heard the same heavy footsteps running across the metal awning toward the window and then a giant BANG. I made me jump in shock and woke up the person next to me, Ive never been more frightened in my life. We have dogs in our room and they didn't seem to bark at anything, the other person was panicking as well asking me over and over "whats wrong, whats wrong?!". I was too scared to talk, my teeth chattered and I was curled up in a ball shaking in terror. I was like this for over 10 minutes until I could actually tell them what happened. Ever since I've been terrified of sleeping in that room, or sleeping in general. A lot of fighting and arguing goes on in my house so it would make sense it if is attracted to that kind of stuff. Something similar has happened before in that room just not to that extent. I normally see good spirits, kind ones who are great company. Im terrified if it gets worse, for all I know next time it could strangle me in my sleep!

    Recently I've begun to think that possibly there's something else where I live. Nothing big, just little things like 3 subtle knocks on a specific wall at any time of the day or night, automatic lights turning on by themselves, and my roommate and I have both felt like we've noticed some sort of black mist out of the corner of our eyes when we're alone.

    We're both moderately interested in the occult and supernatural, have mild depression and anxiety issues, bitterly resentful etc.

    I realize that all this doesn't blatantly point to a demonic or ghostly presense, but it's just kind of funny to read this article and notice that 75% of what you mention is stuff we can relate to or have experienced.

    Hi Nicole, thanks for your article. I've been suspecting that I may be victim of a demonic spirit or negative entity for quite some time now. I've had reoccurring dreams of entities attacking me, always in a different form in the dream sometimes they're a human sometimes a creature or an animal, point is they're always after me attacking me. One time in the dream while being attacked I somehow became consciously aware of the dream, made a gesture in the sign of the cross and they immediately stopped. Since then I haven't been having that many dreams of being attacked but I still don't feel like myself and have felt not like myself now for years. I suffer with depression, but one of the things I've noticed is that a lot of times when I leave my house somehow it's like my depression will dissipate not completely but I stop feeling as negative, but then once I come home I start to feel a dark cloud over me again. I remember once studying abroad, was away for 5 months didn't deal with any mental health issues, but as soon as I got home fell into anxiety and depression. I still live with my parents, and unfortunately my mom as much as I love and adore her has a lot of negative habits (Often talks about other people's problems, loves watching crime shows that show a lot of death and sometimes gore etc.). She's always had a tendency to be a negative person and I'm afraid that her negativity could be what's helping to harbor the environment for a negative entity to thrive in. Over the past years I've dealt with extreme anxiety and very negative thoughts always telling me I'm going to die, have been to multiple doctors (cardiologist, rheumatologist, neurologist, have been to therapy and have even been to a holistic nutritionist) basically they have all ruled out I'm perfectly healthy. So at this point, I basically don't know what to do to eradicate the negative energy and get my life back. All I want is to feel like myself again.

    Several years ago I moved into an apartment and strange things started happening. Feeling of eyes on me, my dog freaking out, rosaries being slapped into wall, 3 scratch marks on my back/shoulder, also my bed being slammed into the wall after calling whatever it was names. Everything calmed down and seemed to gone away until lately. I've been on drugs all of my adult life and believe this is a open door for such negative things to be attracted. Just the over day it was the most intense I have ever experienced. I was sitting on the couch trying to screw a metal clip together and all of a sudden a extremely negative feelings came over me with a strong pressure and almost buzzing or hum sound around my head and everything in my hands felt as it was being pushed , like it was magnetized. The screws were sticking to my body and rolling around the other side of my hand literally upside down were gravity should've made them fall to the floor but didn't the metal Bar I was working on was being pushed towards me. When I went to show my gf I did it in such a way that it had to stop or it would be apparent that something was wrong and super natural, whatever it was seemed to get furious and the pressure was like a blast of anger very intense, I had to jump up and say "in the name of Jesus" and sing Jesus name above all names. It was the most aggressive experience I ever had with this negativity. I am concerned for my pets as I am not worried about it hurting me. I am nowilling getting clean and reading the bible and meditating. Even doing good this is still feel that whatever it is, is just waiting for the right time to come back.. this most recent experience was so powerful and scary that it is 10x stronger than when I was being bothered years ago in that apartment I spoke about earlier. I now feel like this is something that is always around me. Crazy crazy crazy.. I learned my lesson talking trash to "it" years ago. I feel like if I did that this time it would be dangerous.. also I feel something holding on to my shirt when I feel it around. It's almost like it's on my back following me everywhere I go in my house.. but i feel like it's only in my house , even tho I seen shadows in the rear view mirror of my car..

    I just want to note the drugs I use are not hallucinogens. Pot and opiatesaid. Soon to be none.. in the name of Jesus. Amen.

    My friend has been experiencing A LOT of scary things in his apartment. He's smelled sulfur, heard footsteps, seen twin girls, feels like something is watching him, he's had sleep paralysis multiple times and during it has seen a demonic like thing looking at him, doors have locked by himself, also he called me and we tried to pray and all of a sudden the phone hung up by itself, another time he's felt like something was sitting in a chair in his room, he's also said he's felt like it has "hugged" him while he's lying in bed and that he feels like it follows him. I am really worried that whatever is happening is going to get worse. His friends have also had paranormal experiences in his apartment. I'm not sure what to do as I'm afraid it might escalate or anger the entity. Do you think it's a demon or ghost or something? And please if you think of anything to help please tell me.

I hear strange noises ant night like ill be laying in my bed at night and i hear a door open and my family has gone to bed, and i look and my door open when it should be closed and there's nothing there. Then i feel like i am being watched so i look around my room and there is nothing there. Then i start to feel something on my back and there's nothing there. me and my brother get in a lot fights but i question that its just a brother sister thing. Oh i also have a lot of scars on me and i feel like something is touching me all the time. I am also really into the Ouija board thing i don't own it but i feel like i do. Also at random points i freeze and just stare for a long time. This also happens in school and nobody believes me but i'm sitting there crying on the bus because my friends are laughing at me that i'm being "haunted" by a "ghost" when i really think i am and probalby am.

    I've experienced a haunting personally and moved. It was one of the worst things I've ever gone through. Now a member of my family and his family moved into a home and are experiencing some activity after a few months of residency. A hooded dark figure standing at the foot of his girlfriend's bed at night, cupboard doors opening on their own, and you actually watching them do it, his girlfriend getting locked in the basement when the kids were upstairs playing, along with the occasional footsteps that don't belong to anyone. What does this sound like to you? Is it evil? How do we stop whatever is going on?

    grumpycat - It might be a wandering ghost/spirit that noticed an empty house and took up residence temporarily. This can happen whether you are home or not, though. My suggestion is to do a house cleansing. You can smudge (using sage, google how to do this) or you can put rice in the corners of your home (this soaks up negative energies hiding in the corners). You can also bless your windows and doorframes and vents/etc. with oil. Call upon whatever higher power you believe in to help you with this. If you don't believe in a higher power, cleanse the house anyway and believe that it will send the spirit on its way.

    Creole38 - First, I'd say to talk to your religious group official and ask for help. Ask what you can do to rid yourself of this spirit/entity that seems to plague you at night. If they don't have answers or don't want to help, I'd move on. But that's just me.

    Rob - I am not an expert on demons but it sounds like one is trying to control you. Maybe feeding off of your energy. Do you believe in God or a higher power? You might want to think about contacting a religious official...be it a priest, pastor, shaman, etc. It sounds like you need those "strings" severed in order to be free. Are you still using? If so, maybe time to get clean.

    Dear Nicole, I recently joined a group off Nichiren Buddhist and have been chanting nam myo horenge kyo. This means that I devote myself to the law of cause and effect. I had become disillusioned with the church for the charlatan pastors constantly asking for money and the priests who have molested children. I still wanted a practice and I have taken this up with a group called Sokka Gakki. Here's the problem, things have become contentious at home. I still love Jesus even though they said it is all myths borrow from other civilizations. I've had a serious jump out of bed night terror and when I spoke of it with a fellow member she spoke of poltergeists in her home and how they are disembodied spirits who are not ready to move forward to their next life. I think that the group seems really sincere and I was looking for friends in my new environment. I found your article and my heart lurched. Here's the thing, I have the budsadan and gohonzon (object of devotion) and I don't know what to do with it. I need prayers and guidance because if the night terror I experienced is any indication of what's down the pike I'll have none of it thank you! Help me.

    Hey, I'm from India. I've been away from my home for four days and everything feels different after I came back. The doors seem to unlock itself, I hear weird noises. My dogs are restless at night. I hear the strangest bird songs at 3 am. I've never heard that before and I've lived in this house all my life. The power comes on and goes. This is the third time in a row I'm waking up at 3. Last two days I woke up from nightmares, but this time around I woke up because something bit my right hand thumb. I couldn't see what it was cus there was no power, but it's excruciating pain. Like being stung by a wasp.

    I've had experiences of sleep paralysis and false awakenings before. But this time I'm really worried. This is my ancestral home, around 50 years old. My aunt killed herself here when she was only 16. Before I was born. People haven't been generally happy here.

    But what brought out the sudden changes here? Why do I suddenly feel unsafe in my own home? If there are spirits here, haven't they gotten used to me in 20 years?

    ElectraHeart - It doesn't sound evil to me, it sounds like a passing-by ghost or what others call a wandering ghost. Don't feed into the fear of it. If you feel the absolute need, you can cleanse your house by using sage (a process called smudging - you can google it). And you can bless the doors and windows with oil. Hope this helps.

    My family has been living in the same house for 17 years now, my age, and today I found out paranormal things have been happening to them. Currently it's just me, my mom, brother, and older sister who are living here. All three of them have experienced something except me. My mom has been woken up by footsteps, and my brother and sister have heard them too. My sister has had her restroom door be shut closed when she has left it wide open. My brother was woken up by it gasping at a dream that he was having, and whenever he heard the footsteps he looked at the direction but they stopped and once he looked away they continued.

    I am the only who has not experienced anything like this. I haven't been woken up nor have I heard footsteps. I wonder why that is.

    All of this has recently begun to occur. We also have a neighbor who lives in part of the house and he had a bag of rice spilled all over the floor and the next time that something happened was that he found rice behind his toilet without any trail of where it could have come from.

    dustio - It sounds like you need a good cleansing in the house you're in now. I wouldn't wait until you get a new house to do a cleansing. If I truly is a ghost or the spirit of a person who died or who is attached to the house, if you have a proper cleansing done, she should leave with no problem. I would talk to your pastor/priest/clergymen about helping with that. Thank you and good luck to you.

    We moved into our rent house in April of 2013 During the first several months of living here my bf was driving for a towing company and would get calls in the early morning and middle of the night. When he would leave I would notice a feeling of someone by my side of the bed looking at me. It was very alarming. I have always had good spirits around me and this was not one of those. How this would happen would be, he would leave I would hear the door close and then I would fall back to sleep waking up with anxiety and the feeling of someone close to the bed looking at me. His son moved in with us in 2014 and his son was having a super hard time with things such as hearing sounds, not being able to sleep and at night I would hear sounds coming from the kids room and the kid would be asleep. I quickly placed a couple Bibles and started talking about God to my step son. The activity in his room stopped. By this time the bf had another job where he wasn't called out but the he left about 5:30 in the morning and this same thing would happen. I then purchased and placed a Bible in the common area of the house. We currently have 2 more Bibles that were my grandmother's, she just passed in December and I have placed her Bible's in our spare room for keeping. Now since I placed the Bibles around the house and demanded what ever it might be to leave the house we had a decent period of time where there was no activity to my awareness.... until a couple nights ago, it was a rough night, no one was sleeping good. I got up at 1:30 to let our dogs outside and my stepson was awake and we tossed and turned all night. between 3-4 I woke up with the feeling of someone on my side of the bed looking at me, my heart was racing with anxiety. The feeling quickly went away. I mentioned to my bf that when we buy a house I want to have it cleansed and why and what was going on in the house not aware if he had felt anything or not. Keep in mind up until me talking to him he had acted really distance all week. So during our conversation my bf informs me that I must have pissed someone off because the only one in the house other than us is a woman in her 60's named Irene. I didn't know weather or not to believe him since he doesn't speak of such things. I am a strong believer in spirits good and bad and as a child growing up was well aware of one of my grandfathers being with me from time to time. I just want to know if we should be concerned enough that we need to be looking for somewhere else to live. This spirit came with the house... Thanks

    Hi, Zj125. It sounds like you have some kind of haunting, for sure. Whether it's your father or not will have to be determined by you. Was he an angry, bitter, or resentful individual? Territorial? Did he die a peaceful death or was he trying to hold on for dear life? I'm sorry if these questions are personal but if you can say yes to him being angry or bitter, or that yes he struggled to retain life in the end, he could very well still be there thinking he's still alive. If not, perhaps you have some other type of ghost or entity in your home. If you feel it is a negative energy, the best thing to do is have a house cleansing done. You can do it yourself, or you can ask your religious leader to do it. You can also look online and have a local shaman or witch/psychic come to the house and perform a cleansing. Usually this is done with burning sage (a ritual called smudging) and then the house is blessed with either oil or holy water. Let me know if you have more questions.

    steelshell - You're not going to find any "proven facts" about ghosts/hauntings/demons because science refuses to back it. It's the same as if you ask if there's a God and can science prove it. Some might say yes, it can be proven while others say no it cannot. It's really a matter of personal experience. Those who have come in contact with a ghost, particularly a demon, will know they exist. They won't need proof because they've seen/experienced it.

    What references are available to share with and offer proven facts to a skeptic? I've experienced paranormal incidents in my younger days, and a couple of my children balk at those experiences - stating that without irrefutable proof, it's all just a manifestation of the mind. I'm a very open minded person - I acknowledge the fact that what I experienced could be a projection of my own mind...However, when it's more than one person present and experiencing the same thing, before you can even describe to them what you yourself see/hear/feel - that doesn't seem to support the "mass hysteria" argument. I try to describe that, until a person has actually gone through such an encounter, it's difficult to describe in any convincing way, just how it felt unquestionably real. I don't believe in this way or that way, I simply believe there is much unknown to us, and through the years science has discovered things we previously were certain to be another way. So, what is documented, by respectable sources and in undeniable ways, to help open a person's mind to just the possibility that these instances are not manifestations of the mind?

    CherKison - Smudging may or may not make it worse. I won't lie to you. If it's to the point where you smudge and it angers the spirit, you need someone who is experienced in removing such things...like a priest, pastor, shaman, witch, etc.

    Will Smudging make it worse? If it is say a demon will it still work or will it only anger it and make it worse. I've suffered with depression most my life so I hope you can understand why I'm asking worst case scenario. The last time I went to my house I had a very strong urge to hurt myself when I got out the house I felt better. It's been almost a week since I've gone back home.

    My name is Sherie and I'm hoping someone can shine some insight onto some things I'm experiencing. I moved into a new home almost 3 months ago and ever since have had a weird feeling of being watched my dogs bark at nothing but that's not what has me bothered. About a month ago I started smelling what can be described as rotting meat on a daily basis. My home is extremely clean and I have searched countless times to see if possibly my dogs brought in a gift or anything that would cause that smell. It's not throughout the house but where my steps to upstairs lead. I also clean an average of 50 flies from my Windows floors on a daily basis dead and alive. I recently left for a week and wheni returned I literally had hundreds that where dead in my window sill. I live in Michigan and we are in the dead of winter. The house has been treated for insets 3 times since September and the flow of them never stops. I cannot sleep thru the night without having a bad dream. I want to find out what if anything is in the house but not sure how to do so with out possibly inviting something in. I also am finding deep scratches in my wood floor. I originally thought it was maybe my dogs causeing them but the scratches are 3 lines and I keep there nails trimmed. Any advice would greatly be appreciated. Thank You

    Oddly enough about a month ago the previous owners stopped by and told me that a lady they knew informed them she buried something (I forgot exactly what the said but had to deal with a saint) on my property but not sure where. Please help.

    um.... i've unfortunally become absessed with demons and spiritual stuff before this and did rituals and attempting seancing and stuff, visited a haunted house and an abandoned mall am i gonna be ok?

    yes i've been hearing loud thudding and moaning and sometimes whispering, one time i saw shadows of rocking horses and circling ducks on the wall by my bed one night, it's one of my biggest mysteries, it happened when i was very little, i saw it and got up to tell my parents, when my dad came in to look the shadows were gone...... but as soon as he closed my door they appeared again. this definately wasn't a dream my parents confirmed me getting up and telling them over and over again, ever since then i began hearing things and seeing things and shadows, i got a phobia of the dark. at one point i had all nightmares every night for a week.

    i don't know if this is important but my cat has been meowing and waking me up lately. i heard animals can see spirits but MAYBE just a rumer so yeah.... anyway i haven't been getting scratches but i have been getting random scars, i occasionally hear this buzzing in the wall and the roof creaking at night.

    is there anything i can do?

    Okay so as it goes for the haunting's the signs of it that can be explained as simple as the person seeing out of the ordinary things is because they can see beyond the veil. I have it always had it and several others I know can see it, I am not afraid of things like this and no one else should be. The bible and crap like that has poisoned peoples minds in showing fear. This is why only none religious people should be interacting with the metaphysical world any thing one can dream up can affect them in the physical world emotionally or physical. This stuff is here to aid not to destroy us, you can learn allot about you and why you are here by just asking yourself questions then closing your eye's or asking yourself before you go to bed. This all works on the creative aspect of your mind or your soul. Some information is not made available to you as your not ready but still no harm in asking. Everything runs on energy visible and vibration, our brains are transmitters and receivers on a wireless network and one can access that network if they feel the need to.

    A few years ago when I was reading the Harry Potter series, I began experiencing night terrors. It would feel like a tremendous weight was holding me captive almost every night. I would put all my energy into trying to frantically break free and I would often wake up yelling. I really freaked out my wife!

    This went on for a few weeks. I began getting in the habit of calling out forcefully to Jesus to escape and I noticed how Jesus would immediately free me once as soon as I managed to call out his name.

    I finally decided to go to sleep holding a crucifix. One night as the terror attacked me, I called on the name of Jesus and swung the crucifix around as though striking at the evil spirit that was oppressing me. Immediately I was released and the spirit never returned again.

    Frida - I think you need a good cleansing. You can take an herbal bath or do a smudging on yourself. Also, search for your spiritual side. Lacking a path of spirituality can make one feel quite empty.

    So I just read your article and even though I find it crazy interesting, I have something that bugging me about it. Kinda. Well.

    I was in LA for a couple of months this summer (I'm originally from Sweden and I still live here) and I rented a house it didn't seem like me and my house mate was alone. We rented the upper floor in a house and another couple rented the downstairs but we had different entrances so we barely met them. Also, this was a HUGE house so if I was watching TV in the living room, my friend wouln't hear anything in his bedroom just a bit down the hall. Anyways. We weren't alone and we started to notice that maybe one or two weeks after we moved in. And as you write; it started with small stuff. Just sounds here and there. We had this really funny thing that wasn't fun at all, where the sound of like 2-3 rubber balls were thrown around in the hallway came and went. Just like bouncing around, and it was nothing there and we were scared out of our minds. And then that got worse. And worse. And everything got so annoying, there were "small" sounds everywhere. AND THEN we fucked up incredibly by disobeying our landlord who told us not to go in to the master bedroom (there were three bedrooms upstairs) , because the handyman had let me in just a day before and now my friend wanted to see the place so we saw it and then closed the door and that's when we got "the visit".

    My friend came rushing in to me, asking why I opened his door and then went back to my room without saying anything. Of course it wasn't me. And then we notice, because we freaked out, that the front door was wide open. This was a really big, heavy, LOCKED TWICE door and it was in the middle of the night and it was just wide open. And my friends bedroom door had just flown open. Not like in a "gently push" kinda way, more like someone throwing up the door screaming "I'm home bitch". Which sounds weird but I need you to have this picture because that the vibe we got.

    AND THEN the constant fights started, we were both always mad or angry, and we used to be best friends. We would always hear the other person calling for each other, the door was always open even though we made sure to lock i. Sounds. Footsteps. Coughs. The feelings of being smothered, being not alone, being watched. The feeling of wrong.

    And of course it got to the point where I would wake up with large bruises out of nowhere, on places that I would never in a million year be able to hit.

    I just really have to stop here, there is much more and this isn't meant as a cliff hanger. I don't live in that house anymore and I'm very happy for it. My house mate moved out without telling me, he just said that I made it very clear that he wasn't welcome there anymore and then he left. But I wasn't even home that day so I came home to an empty, unlocked house with windows open, lights still turned on, fans and tv still on, fridge door open. And then I got sick, could barely walk or eat and something just continued to grow inside that house, and it wasn't me. Something was taking over and I got so scared that I started to sleep with a knife beside me, all of the lights turned on and all of the doors locked. And were they always locked or turned on when I woke up? Nope.

    Being through whatever that was has made me feel weak and broken and I need to know what I met, I need to know what hurt me. I feel hurt and I can't let go because what ever it was, didn't want me there. It was either gonna throw me out or swallow me whole, and now all I'm left with is emptiness.

    So.. Hm. If I wanted to know, if it's even possible, what that was and how I should handle this hole in me from now on, where should I turn?

    I can definitely relate to the following but what I can't say is if it's supernatural or just psychological. Can anyone confirm my suspicions that something has attached itself to me? Or, is it just me?

    I'm 20-yrs old... I live with my mum, step-"dad" and baby brother. The only other family I have is my sister who lives with my grandmother nearby.

    As you can see I don't have much family. The two that I'm closest to are my mum and my gran. They're pretty much the only thing keeping me from killing myself. I love my sister, obviously, but with my suicidal thoughts, I don't like to connect with her much (to avoid having yet another person to stay around for, if that makes, the same goes for my brother) and as for my brother... Well, he's young... It may sound cruel but I'd rather not have any sort of relationship with him and I'd prefer him to grow up thinking of me as something other than brother to avoid any sort of sadness that my passing may bring him in the future...

    I have two black cats, my step-"dad" keeps some pigeons in a shed, in our back garden and recently we've decided to adopt a rabbit. It belonged to my gran and she couldn't manage it... I know this sounds like useless information but it's more than that I think... The pigeons are dying randomly... A lot of pigeons. My cats are always killing birds... I can sometimes "save" them but then it's always my job to keep them warm and in a quiet, dark place. I have no problem with doing but they always end up dying... And I always feel responsible... It's the worst feeling in the world when one second you see the bird is fine and then the next, it's gone. My heart just sinks... I get attached too easily.

    All life is precious to me... Animal life is more important to me than any human though. I've just given up now... I can't save them. It's just nature, right? But, it still breaks my heart... The same goes for when I see dead insects on the ground where people have just crushed them underfoot, or when I see kids killing insects because they're bored (yes, I used to do it, but I regret doing so everyday), it makes me think about the fragility of life and how easily is can be extinguished... How pointless it is to live, only to die in the end... The pursuit or happiness? A pointless endeavour. Why bother when you're always against the clock? There's just no point... The end is drawing nearer and nearer everyday and it'll finally catch up to you and then you'll die. It's hopeless. Then what? Eternal slumber, bliss or damnation? Who knows? Just waiting to die. "Death is the goal of all life" -- Sigmund Freud -- ...I should probably mention that both my sister and my mum have suffered from depression/anxiety in the past (they still do a little bit), so I guess I shouldn't be surprised that I also do. Or, at least I think it's that... On the other hand, it could just be that I've stripped the wool from my eyes, rebelled against the shepherd and broken free from the chains that held me prisoner.

    Whatever the case, I feel free! I feel like an individual... My outlook on life and this depression/realisation or whatever it is has allowed me to adopt the idea of, "live and let live", whereas before I was unjustifiably hateful towards certain groups of people, as opposed to humanity as a whole (I was living in the past and had my head in the clouds) and I was always trying to be someone who I could never hope to be. I had a huge ego... And now I just don't care. I wear what I want, do what I want. I don't care what people expect of me, I don't care about the law or peoples opinions or labels. If something has attached itself to me through my "negativity" then it has given me the gift of open mindedness and free will, even if it is somewhat in control, which it could be given my sudden and extreme change in attitude and outlook on life. The question is, have I unknowingly given myself to the dark side?

    I guess I'll just finish up by pointing out a few other things... I've done two rituals in the past. 1. A dedication ritual to Satan. 2. Summoning a succubus. Unfortunately, nothing much happened in either ritual... And that was depressing. I feel like I was rejected a thousand times... I now bear the scars on my arms (where I cut), until death. A humiliating reminder... I may just be impatient? Who knows. My health is slowly deteriorating, as well as my memory... I feel empty inside. I don't get very emotional lately... I have to force myself. Why does no one answer when I call out to them? If something is attached to me, why doesn't it speak?


    *Lack of Interest in Once-Loved Activities* ...I think this is pretty self explanatory but I'll elaborate. I don't get outside much, maybe once a month. That's if I'm lucky. I try not to go outside without a purpose... I'm not wealthy so there's not much I can really do with money being a requirement for nearly every activity and I refuse to be a slave to the state. So, what? I don't have much in the way of hobbies now. I'm losing interest in what little hobbies I do have and that leads me to my ever-growing interest and fascination with death and the paranormal.

    I smoke cigars, listen to some music, contemplate the possibilities, eat, drink, sleep, rinse and repeat. That's my life.

    Also a...

    *Interest in the Occult/Black Magic*

    *Obsession with Death* There's not much to say about this... Is any of this even real? What is my purpose? Why do I even exist? I hate not knowing! I don't think anyone really understands what it's like when you begin to ask yourself these questions and can't find the answers. Sure, you can lie to yourself but deep down you know... 99% of people are probably just living for the sake of living or for the benefit of others. A little bit like I am... The only way forward I see, is through death. Death may hold the answers to those questions... Regardless of what or what might not be, death is inevitable and as I always say, there's no point in delaying the inevitable. It's pointless.

    *Anger/Resentment* I have a deep hatred towards humanity. Why? Humans think they're the centre of the universe. They're greedy, selfish, arrogant and ignorant. Money is king, power is queen... Why?? I know that's a stupid question, right? But, still... Why? Both of these things lead only to corruption... What happened? Where did we go wrong, or is this just it? Everyone and everything has its price nowadays... Even I. But, that's also why I hate myself! I'm not an innocent here. I am corruptible. There is no integrity left in this world. We're all guilty of something and we should all be made to suffer dearly for our crimes. Maybe it's just this reality... This universe I've been born into. Or, maybe it's just the times... Stupid memes, celebrities, etc.? Why do celebrities get paid more than a military serviceman/woman who puts his/her life on the line everyday just so we can be "free"? Is it just me that thinks that's completely bizarre?

    But, I don't really care about any of that... That's just the old me trying to get out... I used to be a "patriot" or something. I just hate humanity and its lack of structure, identity, etc. There's just too many variables. Things are over complicated when they don't need to be. Too many points of views and perceptions... Conspiracy theories, myths, etc. What is true, what is not?? It's enough to drive a man insane! Society... Laws, political correctness, etc. Laws are just opinions, right? The same as right and wrong! Humanity seems to disagree! "Political correctness" belongs in kindergarten, not in the real world! The same as name calling... Wow! What a life! It's unreal. I hate humanity, yet somewhere deep down inside me I want to love, but I just can't. These are just some of the reasons why I hate humanity... Some I just can't put into words. The other part of me loves humanity because of these very same reasons... I love the sin but I can't taste of its sweetness because of money! No opportunity. I love money... I love it all but yet I hate it. I hate it all. And that's about it.

    In regards to your comment Stacey all my friends including my girlfriend thought I had gone nuts, for three weeks I was hounded, woken, attacked, at one point I actually thought maybe I am, that's when I started recording everything , taking notes and photos now everyone believes me. It took some convincing the priest to be honest who came to my house to remove them. I never thought that could happen, I've never read the bible but I now believe in god. I have lots of pics and notes written down and they send a chill right through me knowing this can happen and does quite frequently, a problem Shared is a problem halved I was once told and it's true. The more information people recieve on this matter the better. I've searched all the names I wrote down of the names of these that attacked me and they all relate to Lilith I was tought at school Adam and Eve were the first here obviously not as Adams first woman was Lilith.

    In response to Michaela Osiecki's comment that Christiants tend to have more hauntings than the secular, I can relate my experience as one who only experiences spiritual warfare when my faith and life are at cross roads. Before I was saved, the only spiritual experience I had was the uncomfortable burning sensation I had while talking about anything religious, it was similar to the sensation I got when I'm embarrassed. However, that didn't stop me from turning my heart and life over to God. I knew I was saved when that uncomfortable feeling was replaced with a feeling of overwhelming euphoria of love, joy, and peace. Then I would wake in the middle of the night feeling like I was suffocatingspirit, and to see an evil spirit appearing like an old man with long white hair floating above me so close face to face that I could reach out and touch him, and then he disappeared. So I prayed, and continued to read the Bible, but life wasn't perfect after I became a Christian. I dealt with all of the temptations that anyone else does. I found that the further I was from God, the more miserable my life would become, but when I while working my relationship with God, the more spiritual warfare I would experience as if a demonic force is attempting to scare me into staying stagnet, but it didn't work.

    The most memorable was just before my husband and I were baptized, I turned over in bed in the middle of the night to face him, and instead was face to face with a skeleton that hissed at me. Without thinking I said out loud, "In the name of Jesus Christ, leave this house, leave this house, leave this house!" The demon hissed at me again, then disappeared, and never reappeared again.

    The most recent haunting was during a time when there was tension in my marriage, and while I was religiously reading and praying daily, as well as praying with our toddler son at night. Two nights in a row I woke to a dark shadow of a person standing over me while I was sleeping in bed. I reacted by jumping up swinging at it, and it flew through our headboard out of our room. My husband was sleeping in our living room so I didn't bother to tell him. I woke the same way the next night, only this time I shouted while I was swinging "This house belongs to the Lord Jesus Christ, and you are not welcome here!" This time I followed it out the closed door that I had to open. My husband woke from the living room this time, so I had to explain to him what happened. We seperated for a month shortly after that, and reconciled our differences since then. I haven't had anymore demonic experience since then, I'm not saying it won't happen again either. I also do not claim that I alone chased those demons away, because I'm not stronger, braver, or more special than any of you. I think the reason those evil spirits left is because I have faith in the Lord, and I called upon Him for strength and protection. (Philippians 4:13). Some people will brush this off as superstition, or a figment of imagination, or mental illness, but I have no other relatable issues. What astounds me most is when I share this with other Christians, many of them have had similar experiences, which is why I am sharing this here with you now.

    One thing that helped me having similar experiences was looking up demons in the bible different types of demons and came across bible sprout it is a dot com it helped me to understand why these things are going on in my life and I believe now I was doing the wrong things in life, not reading the bible to understand what I should be doing in life, I'm not baptized, but I am going to try to get baptized I urge you seek gods word, see a priest about why this may be happening and in the mean time read your bible and use the verses in this article as a reference to direct you in the bible another good verse is john3:16, and accept Jesus Christ as your savior

    Hi, I def have one demon entity in my house it all started after my girlfriend gave birth to our son, strange things started occurring laser pen type lights and shadows at first . I started recording it as was getting what I can only describe as electric shocks. At first I thought it was my girlfriend messing with me as we weren't getting on . I slept downstairs on settee to sleep as baby was keeping me up, blue lights kept waking me all night with whispering. I put my mobile phone down on record and u see blue light but to my surprise when I listened to audio there's a message at start an old type voice saying 'children of men I'm here to warn you ' the day after I could start to make out words that were being whispered and kept seeing black shadows on walls really black my girlfriend was out it told me it was a succubus which I'd never heard of I tried to ignore it and it woke me every night at 2am touching me and whispering I got my girlfriend to move out and thought this can't be real. It told me a lot of things which I wrote down my room was always freezing cold and could see movement on walls and mirrors and could here things moving, kept seeing orbs . I thought this can't be happening it went on for days and started getting worse then one night it stopped so my girlfriend came back and it touched her in night she woke up screaming twice and hasn't returned. Since then I've been pinned to bed and what felt like something pushed into my hip then it felt I was getting cut and managed to get away to see what looked like up to six demons in my room I was in agony and felt bruised everywhere were I was cut . I wasn't bleeding or bruised but internally I was in agony for about five days . I also had sword pushed into my heart which I managed to fight out of and that really hurt. Many things have happened like doors opening , footsteps , breathing , sexual moaning noises , woken 2am till 5-6am every day . Also silloettes of angels have appeared on walls when it gets bad and also they've told me to leave twice and get out of house I've seen dogs that feel like there attacking me and biting my legs and it hurts and my legs start shaking. I don't know what I've done or if there attached to house I'm currently sleeping at my friends and nothing happens , it takes a lot to scare me but this actually does . I have a priest going round tomorrow and contacts to remove negative entities . I actually didn't believe in this I've always been an open book not the most religious person in the world but have been christened I don't understand this I'm starting to get impression it really wants to hurt me . Can anyone help with Amy advice or has similar things happens to anyone ?

    Thanks sorry it's quite long there's so much happened I have photos videos of things I see . My friends all thought I was crazy coz I would think the same if someone told me this . It took a lot to tell all my friends but now there all looking out for me as they know it's happening

    A few years ago a Native American mother to my daughter's friend told her I had a spirit following me. a little girl I guess. I have always had a sense of things and feel all my residences may have had spirits. Or did I bring them with me? A topic I am very interested in. I never did find out much about this spirit, this mom died not too long ago. I feel I am a witch, but more of an earthy, Native American practitioner. I moved into this home about 2 yrs now and the previous owner told me on fb that it is haunted. I always debunk it all to the kids but deep down I sense, feel, know something is off. I have always been different. At 5 I remember pondering things that were really deep. Then I started dreaming. Whatever I dream over and over I would have developed a phobia. Once a great swimmer I became terrified of water, etc. I jokingly called myself the dreaming prophet. When I got my first place it was an apt that I felt it the most. I always debunked it and said oh that's the neighbors but I knew better. I feel like although I love my path spiritually would I have picked it living somewhere else? I wonder if this house is making my fibromyalgia worse, my mental health worse (I have bipolar so I always hear and see things, etc I just blame it on that), choosing my religious path? In high school I was goth and am still at heart at 43. I started suicide attempts at 10 yr old, had and eating disorder, lost both my brothers, and so much more. I actually feel my family or I am cursed. Someone talk to me....

    If one believes in God & Angels then they must believe in Lucifer & Demons. Can't have one without the other, have to have balance.

    I tend to think that groups like ISIS are demonic. I think you have to be demon possessed to believe that burning human beings alive in cages is a good idea.

    Michaela - You're lucky then! Or else you know how to protect yourself and your home from any type of negative entity invasion. I consider myself a very positive person, but there are times in my life where I have done something as seemingly innocent as astral travel in my sleep and dealt with lower entities following me back. I also believe if people don't protect themselves (shielding, etc) when they visit places where souls might be trapped or lingering, they can indeed invite something home with them. I've had too many experiences to ignore them and pass them off.

    I've suffered from depression/anxiety for years, and yet I've never had an encounter with a harmful entity because of it.

    I've more than "dabbled" in the occult, I've been doing this for years, including frequent spirit board use and yet I've never encountered a demon.

    As a lifer in the Goth scene, I definitely enjoy graveyards and seances and documentaries about weird stuff that includes murders and such...but no demon encounters.

    Even adding an alcohol problem on top of that....I'm still free of negative entities.

    I'm not denying that some of this stuff might attract a demon, but the majority of the demonic hauntings I've come across typically involve nice Christian families who aren't doing anything "weird" to attract bad attention.

    While visiting my daughter I noticed a large black shape in her kitchen twice. Not wanting to alarm her or my grandchild, I didn't mention it until after I returned home, and asked me if I had noticed anything while visiting. Then she told me about seeing a black shape in the kitchen as well as a light that went through the wall and into the kitchen cupboards, rattling pots and pans as it passed through (or hid).

    I once had a minor demonic infestation in my classroom. Right around where my number one troublemaker sat, was this smell--it smelled like vomit. The thing is, it smelled like that in one particular spot only, and even when the kid was not there. All the time. The desk did not contain any of this belongings, and I washed the area. I had to have friends come in pray in the classroom, and the smell disappeared.

    To some critics that think this subject is superstitious . If we exist as individuals ,without our control ,why do you think other creations would not exist ? Just because you have never seen or experience a spirit creature, does not mean it is not real.

    Example the Island of Boneo has over 200 new species no one new about until some years ago. Did they exist all the time ,they had to people just never discover them yet,

    So we also have spirit creators that people have discovered !

    yohewriter - I'll have to check that out. Thanks so much!

    Team wiseman - I would agree with that.

    seafarer mama - I know what you mean. Mainly here I was trying to point out that some people dabble in it because they want a thrill and are not looking at the big picture or thinking of the possible consequences of being somewhat ignorant to what lies out there. Thanks so much for reading, nice to hear from you.

    nell - I was wary about writing this article because I figured it would be controversial, but I've seen and experienced too much not to believe that there are things out there of both a positive and negative nature...including what we term "demons". It's the yin and yang that the Chinese speak of..the light and dark, etc.

    Kiss and Tales - Thanks for sharing.

    Spongyollama - That is your opinion and you are entitled to have one, just as I am entitled to have one and have the freedom to write about it. Next time do me a favor, don't bother writing a comment on a hub that you feel is worthless.

    nanderson500 - Too true my friend! Thank you for reading. :)

    2besure - Very good point...and many people who have had those experiences will agree with you in that statement. You can't escape something that is attached to you.

    Very interesting topic. I have often wondered how many people are haunted rather than the houses. In this case the person will need deliverance/cleansing prayers. If not, when they move the activity will continue at the new location. Very nicely done.

    Interesting! Hauntings have always fascinated me. A ghost would be frightening enough, but it's tough to imagine what it would be like to have a demon in your home. Yikes!

    Superstition is the child of ignorance. I criticize anyone who makes spiritual claims for which there is not a shred of hard evidence, because there are severe consequences when people try to conflate real personal issues with flimsy superstition for which there is no place in the 21st century. Much of what you discuss above is the result of mental illness, sleep disorders, and in some cases, simple glitches in human perception. Talk of ghosts and demons in this context is wildly inappropriate and potentially harmful.

    Your hub is valuable in that it brings out vital information dealing with the bad spirit realm. Along with your information I have listed some important things that people need to know as in protection themselves and others from these spirit creatures .

    Reference Bible De 18:10 There should not be found in you anyone who makes his son or his daughter pass through the fire, anyone who employs divination, a practicer of magic or anyone who looks for omens or a sorcerer,

    Reference Bible De 18:11 or one who binds others with a spell or anyone who consults a spirit medium or a professional foreteller of events or anyone who inquires of the dead.

    For these things are dealing with satan and his demonic Angels.

    Ac 26:17, 18 And I will rescue you from this people and from the nations, to whom I am sending you to open their eyes, to turn them from darkness to light and from the authority of Satan to God, so that they may receive forgiveness of sins and an inheritance among those sanctified by their faith in me.’

    Notice satan also has people that represent him.

    Reference Bible Joh 12:31 Now there is a judging of this world; now the ruler of this world will be cast out.

    If we are to continue living into the promise New world we will not get involved with satan's powers of magic ,sorcery, divination, fortune telling. These are his devises.

    Notice that God almighty says he will rescue you from these fallen evil angels if we put out trust and faith in him.

    Ps 91:14 God said: “Because he has affection for me, I will rescue him. I will protect him because he knows my name.

    Reference Bible Pr 18:10 The name of Jehovah is a strong tower. Into it the righteous runs and is given protection.

    Ps 20:1 May Jehovah answer you in the day of distress. May the name of the God of Jacob protect you.

    Wow. Very informative.

    I don't do anything black...all of my spiritual work is of light, and I'd never touch a ouja board, but never knew I needed to protect myself when consulting a tarot deck. I've always thought that if my question or concern is about helping myself of others....it would not be harmful. I will ask for protection before my next spread.....but there have been no signs that my home has been visited by any type of spirit but benevolent.

    Hi Kitty!

    A well fleshed-out article that does a good job of touching on nearly all aspects of demon hauntings. I am in the process of becoming Catholic and demon oppression has become prevalent at points in my home. Unbearable stress levels and irrational behavior are common signs. May I recommend a good resource? The Screwtape Letters by C.S. Lewis. Thank you for sharing#
