How to Get Rid of Demons and Demonic Attachments
What Demons Are Drawn To
I receive dozens of emails every week about people who are concerned they are being haunted or attacked by a demon. Some people don't know if it's a ghost or a demon. Here's what I can tell you for sure—if the spirit is getting physically violent, seemingly harassing you day and night, and the paranormal activity is increasing in intensity and quantity, you most likely are dealing with a demon. Demons feed off of negative vibrations such as fear, anger, depression, discord, anxiety, loneliness, etc. Sometimes, just sometimes, they will attack people who are highly spiritual individuals or people who are powerful in society; however, this is usually not the case. Usually, demons are drawn to people who emit low vibrations.
People can emit low vibrations for a number of reasons, including: severe depression, anger issues, fear, drug addiction, alcoholism, and addictions of any kind (gambling, hoarding, physical). On a different level, sometimes people open themselves up to demonic attachment because they dabble in the occult without protecting themselves—this includes going ghost hunting without the proper spiritual safeguards. Keep in mind there is a hierarchy of demons, just as there's a hierarchy of angels and other spirits, but most demons are of a low energetic vibration and therefore they seek more of that same energetic frequency.
Just as demons can be drawn to certain people because of their lifestyle, demons can also be drawn to certain places because of residual negative energy. For example, some demons may be attracted to a building where a mass murder occurred. They may be drawn to a place with a history of tragedy or loss. Often this is when you will have a demonic haunting instead of a demonic attachment. Sometimes it is difficult to tell between the two, especially if no one around you is giving you signs that they have a demonic attachment. You'll have to watch carefully and discern carefully. You don't want to jump to conclusions and blame someone for bringing a demon home, but you also don't want to assume the demon is only haunting your house and not attracted to someone specific in it.
How to Get Rid of a Demon in Your House
If there is a demon in your house, it will be harassing nearly everyone who lives in the house including any household pets. This will be how it manifests from the very beginning. Typically this happens when someone moves into a new home and the demon is already there, or when there are renovations done to a home and the demon is called up after lying dormant. If someone in your house has been the focus or target of the demonic activity from the start, see the next section on how to get rid of a demonic attachment.
So if there's a demon in the house, how do you get rid of it? It's going to take some effort from the man and woman of the house. Whoever is the patriarch and/or matriarch of the house will have to be the ones to eradicate the spirit. First, the house needs to be cleaned top to bottom. Then it needs to be de-cluttered. Physical debris and dirt can accumulate and can actually trap negative energy creating a perfect space for negative entities to thrive. Following the cleaning and de-cluttering, you will need to do a smudging of the entire house. Smudging is an ancient Native American spiritual method of cleansing the environment of negative spirits and energies. This works best when white sage is used, and the entire house is smudged from top to bottom. This includes smudging the closets, crawl spaces, large cabinets/pantries, the garage, basement, EVERY nook and cranny. During the smudging process do not forget to open the windows and/or a door or two. This allows for the negative energy and demon to exit the building. If you smudge the house and don't give it an exit route, you might just piss it off and make things worse for yourself.
Directly after you've done the smudging ritual, you will need to close the windows and doors, and move onto blessing the windows and doors. You can do this with a bit of holy water or even a bit of blessed oil, and draw a protective symbol on all of the windows, doors, exhausts, chimneys, basically any place where energy can get into the house. Often people choose the cross as a protective symbol, but depending on your spiritual or religious beliefs you can use whatever symbol you feel is most powerful in the realm of protection. As an added method of spiritual protection, make a physical ring of salt around your entire house, moving in a clockwise fashion and saying out loud as you go, "This house is protected from all evil. No negative entity will enter my house from here on out. There is a white circle of protection around my home and family that cannot be penetrated." If you'd like to change the wording, go for it, just make sure you are being stern and confident in what you are saying. You must remember that your house is your domain, and you have say over it...not the demon.
When you smudge your house, always OPEN A WINDOW OR DOOR else the spirit could get trapped and will be more pissed off than before.

How to Get Rid of a Demonic Attachment
Unfortunately, severing a demonic attachment to a person might be more difficult than getting rid of a demon that's found its way into your house. What happens when a demon attaches itself to a human being is somewhat of a negative feedback loop that inevitably feeds the demon and makes it stronger. The person most likely attracted the demon in the first place with some sort of negative lifestyle or life choice. This could be an addiction of any kind (drugs, physical intimacy, gambling, food, alcohol), severe depression and suicidal thoughts, or even someone who dabbles in the occult without proper spiritual protection. So the demon is attracted to negativity from the individual, but when the person feels the demonic attachment either consciously or subconsciously, more negative feelings will erupt. This feeds the demon and might bring on actual paranormal activity—nightmares, crippling fear, shadows, even physical aggression and violence towards the person. At this point, the person is typically fearful for his or her life and sometimes withdraws from everyone around him or her because they think people won't believe them or that no one can truly help them. Again, you can see how this negative feedback loop puts the individual in a really bad position and the demon in a better position than when it first attached itself.
All of this being said, how does someone get rid or sever a demonic attachment? This is a sticky process, but the very first thing the person should do is change his or her lifestyle. The first and most important thing is to raise your vibrations from low to high. From negative to positive. This means stop drinking, doing drugs, gambling, hoarding, stop all addictive behavior. Stop ghost hunting or dabbling in the occult altogether. Next, start eating healthy and exercising. These are natural things that raise a person's vibrations. Basically the idea is to change your energy from low to high and essentially make it hard for the demon to recognize you from what you used to be. And think of it this way—if the demon was attracted to the person because of his or her depression and the person is no longer depressed, what does the demon have to feed off of? If the demon was attracted to an addict but the person gets clean, what addiction does the demon have to feed off of? This means the demon is essentially starved of the negative behavior it feeds off of.
Be careful that when one negative behavior stops another doesn't pop up. Let's say the person has gotten clean and is raising vibrations but the demon is trying to paralyze the person with fear. The fear is the new negative energy it is trying to consume, so they mustn't let it. They have to know they have the power to stop the attachment altogether with positive thoughts and willpower.
A spiritual cleansing is a must by taking an herbal salt bath and then smudging oneself with white sage. Spiritual cleansing can help to dislodge and remove negative energy in the aura and astral body. If the person has the money and is willing to try it, seek out a certified reiki healer in your area as they have the ability to use reiki to scan the aura and funnel divine healing energy exactly where it is needed to remove any demonic attachments.
If starving the demon doesn't work, the person must seek out someone who can help further. This could be a local priest or religious official, or a shaman or medium who is well-versed in ridding people of demonic attachments.
