Do You Know the Difference Between an Evil Spirit and a Demon?
Poltergeists, Evil Spirits, and Demons—Do You Know the Difference?
Most people believe that an evil spirit and a demon are the same, but this is not true. Even more, people don't know what a poltergeist is. Please join me on this article as I shed some light on these differences.
Connecting With a Medium
First of all, I would like to state that if you find yourself being haunted by something, the best place to start is by getting in contact with a medium and asking them to come out to where the haunting is taking place. That way, you know exactly what you are dealing with. Mediums have the ability to communicate with spirits of the dead, so they might be able to determine what you have. After a medium has visited the area in question, they can tell you the origin of the problem and what steps you need to take to get rid of it.
Mediums can be found online. When you do your search, make sure it is a medium, not a clairvoyant or a psychic. A psychic medium is a good choice as well, the important part being that the professional is a medium. In my research, I have learned that in most cases demons are not very common. The most common things I have found are poltergeists.

Identifying Characteristics of Poltergeists
A poltergeist is a manifestation made up of an individual's negative energy, thoughts, and emotions. The negative energy, thoughts, and emotions will most often cause items to levitate, move, fall off shelves or topple over, or break. Most of the time, the individual sending out these negative vibrations doesn't even know he or she is causing things to happen.
What types of individuals are responsible for creating a poltergeist? Individuals known as "sensitives," which means that they have a medium's abilities. Surprisingly, 85% of these people have no idea that they have these abilities. When they keep their emotions bottled up and don't know how to deal with their personal issues correctly, they subconsciously create a poltergeist. Poltergeists are very dangerous. Unfortunately, they are impossible to get rid of; at best, you can calm them down if you learn to dispense your emotions and thoughts properly. You can seek the help of a medium for ways to suppress these happenings.
Identifying Characteristics of Evil Spirits
Evil spirits are entities that at some point had a physical body. While living, an evil spirit was most likely a bad person and did not have much regard for other people.
In death, its mission is total torture, and its main goal is to make you suffer in every way within its power. Evil spirits want to fill your life with fear. They can inflict pain upon a person and make a person very sick. They are the main culprits responsible for eerie feelings, such as the feeling of constantly being watched.
Evil spirits are often accompanied by a spontaneous feeling of tremendous dread, anxiety, or despair. If you find yourself haunted by an evil spirit, it will be fairly easy to get rid of with a cleansing or blessing of your home. A medium can advise you of step-by-step instructions on how to perform these. Cleansing your home will ultimately force the spirit to cross over and go where it belongs.
Identifying Characteristics of Demons
Unlike evil spirits, demons never had a physical body. They come straight from hell. They are master manipulators. Demons can present themselves; however, they choose who they present themselves to in order to gain the trust of certain individuals.
Children are usually a choice target, due to the simple fact that they are are very open and innocent, which makes them susceptible. Individuals who have disabilities such as autism and down syndrome are also top targets. Demons prey on the weak and vulnerable, making the elderly good targets as well.
Demons have one mission, and that is to seek and destroy. Unlike evil spirits, a demon can actually kill you; they are very powerful forces to be reckoned with. Certain structures can have a demonic attachment as well. Demons can possess an individual, which means they can completely take over the person and make them do anything they want.
If a person is possessed, the only way to resolve the issue is to get a priest to perform a ritual called an exorcism. An exorcism is a true battle of good vs. evil. The priest uses his knowledge of God and faith to pull the demon out of a person and send it straight back to hell where it belongs. In some cases, a medium may recommend seeking out a witch doctor and a spiritual healer. In structural attachment cases, the property would have to be exorcised as well. Structures are much harder to exorcise, and in most cases, property exorcisms are unsuccessful, in which case, the person would have to move.
I hope and pray that nobody ever comes in contact with a demonic force. But if you should be so unfortunate, I hope that you can read this article and are a little more knowledgeable about what steps to take to protect yourself as well as your loved ones. Do not be submissive, but instead take action immediately and stay strong and steadfast. Thank you for joining me in this article.
The Danger of Trying to Communicate With Your Poltergeist, Evil Spirit, or Demon With a Ouija Board
A medium’s role is to communicate with the dead. Unless you are sure that you have a demon, then that is the recommended route. It may be tempting to try to communicate yourself. The most well-known and accessible route is through a Ouija board. According the the Smithsonian, “even psychologists believe that [Ouija boards] may offer a link between the known and the unknown,” and the board was proven to work at the Patent Office before issued its patent. However, as this video shows, that can be a dangerous idea, and actually serve as an invitation for unwanted presences in your home.
