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 place as a ghost. Sometimes ghostly hauntings are so intense they make believers out of non-believers. Sometimes they 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...sometimes they become violent and can down-right harm the people dealing with them.

In these extreme cases we have to look at the other possibilities. Sometimes these hauntings 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 demonic hauntings 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 of a demonic haunting.

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 of human interaction, the signs can be subtle and may mimic your average, run-of-the-mill ghostly haunting. You might experience one or more of the following:

  • strange sounds: footsteps, doors opening and closing, whispers, faint screams or moaning, white noise 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, wafts of unexplained cold air, goosebumps, 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, the signs of a demonic haunting will increase and intensify. You might begin to experience these things:

  • all of the signs mentioned above will intensify and increase plus...
  • 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 - never being able to fully settle down in one's own home or environment
  • negativity between family members or friends will increase and lead to arguments, fights, and general discord.
  • a spirit will begin 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 - i.e. crucifix, bible, rosaries, etc.
  • entire homes or rooms are ransacked though nothing has been taken
  • writing on walls or other places in the building

Signs will differ depending on the severity of the haunting, and depending on the 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"...(Attachment and Possession)

Unfortunately and quite often when there is a demon haunting a home or building of some sort, these hauntings can be fueled by the people around them. It is a vicious cycle in that the demon brings with it negativity that feeds into the people's energies and minds, while in turn the negativity that emanates from these people feed the demon more energy. Because of this cycle, the demonic haunting can go from a haunting to an attachment and sometimes it can even turn into a full blown possession. This depends 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 of a home/building into something more powerful and more dangerous by noticing some 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 aspect. 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 towards his/her family. They might also express resentment towards others that might not have been there before.
  • Lack of Interest in Once-Loved Activities: the person under influence will also withdraw themselves from regular activities that he/she once enjoyed - i.e. hobbies, academics, family quality time, etc.
  • Recurrent Nightmares and Night Terrors: the person under influence will experience recurrent nightmares of the same nature; often these are accompanied by "night terrors" in that the person is scared of the dark and may be found screaming upon waking.
  • Unexplained Marks on the Body: the person under influence 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 random 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 of this might include: weight loss, hair loss, change in skin tone, loss of appetite, vomiting, loss of energy, etc.

When has it gone from a haunting to an attachment and then further progressed into a full-blown possession? I expect you will know when it is full-blown possession. The person will no longer be him/herself in any regard. The voice will change, the person will throw fits of a supernatural power, etc. 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 or otherwise, 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? A demon in the most simplest explanation 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 has the ability to open a door for negative beings to come through...and potentially linger. If a group of people participated in these rituals, this is even more of a magnet for demonic entities.
  • Multiple Deaths: any place that has seen multiple deaths in various forms 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 get 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. I.E. playing with a ouija board, tarot cards, 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. I.E. 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, and in this way can attract more negativity including negative entities like 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).

Just because the dark side is tempting, doesn't mean you should give in...there are things not everyone can hide from.

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.

Hey!

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?

Oh, and I think having demons in your life is better than being completely alone.

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?

*Depression/Anxiety*

*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

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....

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.

Fascinating.

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.

Hiya kitty, fascinating subject, whether we believe or not, strange and horrible things do occur, that make us think, and we should definitely take precautions against them, voted up and shared! nell

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.

Very descriptive article and correct. Demons have a main purpose... To separate, families mostly.

Great Read. Thanks

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#
