For the most part "No". There is, of course, always a change that invoking goodness to ward off the threat caused by an inhuman or negative spirit can bring about some form of retaliation or increased activity but for the most part, these spirits know when you're acting defensively and won't retaliate as they would if you were to personally attack them. In my experience, MOST of the time, protecting yourself with prayers and Holy Water typically helps when an immediate crisis is taking place.
I can truly understand where your hesitation to tell him the truth is coming from. Too many times, I've seen the church turn away from people because they think they're "off the deep end" but you should ALWAYS tell them the truth, as hard and possibly embarrassing as it may be. Here's why: You'd be surprised, most of the time, the priest will still do what you've asked him to do... even if it's just to appease you. But help of this nature cannot be achieved if you don't tell them the TRUE nature of what's going on. If the priest is fully aware of what's going on in your house, or to your family, he can focus on helping in those lines. If he thinks it's just a routine blessing, he may not put everything into it. Plus, for his own safety's sake, when he walks into a house experiencing negative activity, HE becomes the target, knowingly or unknowingly, and it is only fair for him to be aware of any potential danger. If he won't help you after telling him the real reason why you need his help, go to another priest, you WILL find someone who will help.
Not every house is haunted. In all reality, most houses are NOT haunted. It's very easy to get caught up in the hype of haunted houses and to let your imagination run wild and get the best of you, causing you to become afraid for no real reason. But try to remember to listen to your intuition. I've talked with many people that feel as you do and what I try to tell them, and the same applies with you, is to NOT let your imagination take control, rationally think about why you're afraid and ask yourself if there is any justification for those fears. If you pay attention to your intuition and rational thoughts, and not the "ghost stories", you may find that being alone in a house isn't so bad. You can ALWAYS call me if you feel you need to, and talk about these issues more thoroughly.
Well, I've never really heard of anyone using the Tarot cards for that purpose before, typically they're used as a means of obtaining information about a person but as far as any danger to astral projection and meditation, I'll explain. First, there is nothing inherently wrong with meditating. It's a form of mental release and physical relaxation that allows your mind to enter an altered state of consciousness, if done correctly. For that purpose alone, meditation can be healthy but if a person uses meditation as a stepping stone to astral projection, there are a few things to be aware of: A person must practice astral projection carefully, don't go too far too fast. The main issue to be aware of, dealing with astral projection (or Out of Body Experience , OBE), is that when a person goes out of body, their physical body is basically now an empty shell, their "being" or "spirit" is off traveling to another location and the body is now a prime target for another spirit to enter. What it comes down to is if you suspect you live in a haunted house, or know you do, DO NOT try astral projection. Any spirit, good or bad, that is around you, should you decide to astrally project, COULD possess your body if they choose to. If you are 100% sure that no spirits are around you or the house and want to astrally project, it can be an invigorating experience.
The dangers in using the pendulum are the same as when using a ouija board. Much of that, of course, depends on the intent of the user. As I wrote in the Spirit Communications page, I DO classify the ouija and the pendulum as basically the same, because in all reality, they are used virtually (in overall methods) the same and the goals of desired results can be, but aren't always, the same. Everyone's reasoning and purposes for using the ouija board and / or pendulum are going to be different, in one way or another but the POSSIBILITY is always there for negative outcomes. I'm not quite sure what your comment concerning tarot cards has got to do with use of the pendulum or the association of the pendulum with ouija boards but, in my opinion, due to the extreme similarities between the two, if your are so against the ouija, you must feel the same about the pendulum. In my eyes, it'd be like saying a half full glass is good but a half empty glass is bad.
No, I would not classify tarot cards in the same category as the ouija board. There's a big reason why the differences in the purposes of each. Ouija boards are used, mainly, to communicate with spirits, which is where the main danger lies. Tarot cards, on the other hand, are used as a form of divination, foreseeing the future and / or distant current events. Divining with dice, tea leaves, standard cards, and the like would fall under the same category as tarot cards. I would say that tarot cards do not open any doors provided they are used appropriately and are fairly safe. Many people strongly disagree with the ideas of divination due to the fact that the scriptures state that no one should practice this art.
Well, there's the thousand dollar question(s). No figure can be put on how many demons are on the "earthly" plane at any given time but to seriously generalize, I'd say MANY... hundreds... thousands, maybe more. Where do they "stay"? They don't really stay anywhere. They have no "hangout" or gathering place... they come and go between the planes at free will. One minute, they can be in someone's house, the next instant they can be "gone"... or in another house halfway around the world. Ed Warren describes how they travel and exist very well and I will quote him as describing it this way: "Close your eyes and imagine yourself in a location you've once visited... actually see yourself there... one minute you're in your house, the next minute you're in that place you're imagining... poof... that's how they move... they just come into and out of being that easily, that quickly... anywhere in this world (and beyond) at any given moment".
Do you have to have a solid Christian faith to believe in demons and bad spirits? What I mean is, suppose a person is not religious...how would they go about understanding spirits and hauntings? Most secular, non-religious people I know don't 'believe' in demonology. They prefer to call it something else...what part does religion play in this? Let's say god doesn't exist. How could one explain what they have seen/going through, then? How would they deal with their thoughts and feelings?
That is an excellent question. You don't have to have a solid, deep belief system to believe in good or evil spirits. You just have to have a belief in a higher power. Many people, sadly, believe in God but do not believe in the existence of negative spirits. You can't have one without the other... that line of thinking is purely contradictory in nature to begin with. If a person has ANY type of belief in God, the ability to understand the powers of good and evil will come much more easily. For those who do not believe in any form of supernatural or preternatural entities, no explanation can ever really be understood. If a non-religious person is experiencing haunting activity of any nature, nothing anyone could say to them would ever fit into their belief system. From my experience along these lines... a person like this will try to rationalize away what's taking place until something happens that forces them to open their minds to the possibility of a religious experience, good or bad. Until that realization comes, very little can be done to help them make sense of it all. This situation is the most difficult to situation to resolve because along with the paranormal activity, which in itself can be difficult to deal with, trying to also deal with a non-believer and making them really understand the situation is truly difficult.
Well, my first question is: Why would you want to purposefully conjure a demon? Anyone who believes they can conjure a demon and then "control" it is mistaken. Once a demon is conjured, it MAY, should it choose to, follow the person's instructions... until it gets what IT needs then all is fair game. I will not answer that question simply because that would be condoning the practice of black magic.
No, if that were the case, almost everyone would be haunted. As long as you don't become obsessed with the subject, having an interest in the paranormal is of no harm.
Yes, there is always a possibility that you may bring something home with you when you go to a cemetery, especially when your purpose of going is to try to experience a supernatural encounter of some type. The risks of something demonic attaching itself to you are relatively small compared to a human spirit attaching itself to you, but it is entirely possible. I recommend to anyone that, both before and after going to a cemetery for investigative purposes, they say a prayer of protection to reduce the possibility of anything attaching itself to them.
Those pinlights, or ghostlights as we call them, are the manifestations of one or more spirits. Spirits can manifest in many different forms... very small lighted particles, almost like a shiny dust, bigger ghost lights, psychic mists or full figured forms are the most common. Yes, honing one's psychic abilities is safe as long as someone knowledgeable can be used as guide to help, there is always a possibility as in anything dealing with the paranormal, that a door may be opened that someone may not want opened but if you're careful and have the assistance of a good, trained guide, those possibilities will be minimized.
The main reason spirits make noises, sounds, and visible phenomena is mainly to attract attention. Lets say you died and didn't know it... you go back home and realize that NO ONE you're trying to talk to is listening, almost like you're not there... after many attempt to get their attention, wouldn't you try to do SOMETHING that does get their attention? Most of the time, these occurrences aren't meant to frighten, just get someone's attention. As far as whether it would be something human or inhuman, you'd have to put all the circumstances into a fitting picture by using the rules I list in my "An Investigator Initial Interview" page.
Unfortunately yes, demonic or negative spirits CAN infest a person's house without that person "opening any doors". Previous owners or renters could have caused this infestation while THEY lived in the house and just because they moved out doesn't mean that the spirits they brought in will move out with them. As far as possession is concerned, a demonic spirit can't just possess a person at free will but given the circumstances I just stated, once demonic forces are in a person's house, anything else is possible.
I've noticed in many descriptions of your investigations that you use Christian elements in warding off evil spirits, such as Holy Water and pictures of Jesus. I've found it curious that different religions like Hinduism, use different methods such as sprinkling water from the Ganges river, and dashing the spirit with a sacred ash called Vidbuti. I was wondering if you had tried any of these methods, and if so, were they more effective then the Christian methods?
Yes, I do mainly talk about Christian methods on this site and yes, I have been involved with other religions and although there are similarities in some aspects of protection and blessing, there are also many differences, as you have noted. As far as the actual items used, yes, some items can be more effective than others. But the effectiveness doesn't really depend as much on the religious denomination as much as it does the inherent holiness of the item itself and typically, the more holy an item is, the more effective it will be. Provided, of course, that the intent of the cleansing or blessing is true to heart.
Well, in a way. You can force a demonic spirit AWAY but not back to where it came from, only an exorcist can do that. For most people experiencing demonic or inhuman spirit activity, the main concern is getting the spirit away from them. Most of the time though, that is only a temporary fix. You can read a couple methods of what to do here: Self-protection If you DO require a more permanent resolution, or if self-protection methods are not working, you should consider calling in the church of your denomination (if you follow a religious belief) or a paranormal expert to help work through and resolve any problem you may be having. I would not recommend someone not trained more heavily in dealing with the paranormal perform any other means of trying to expel spirits of this nature however. For it can be very dangerous even for those well trained.
Astral projection can be a very stimulating experience but does pose some dangers. Although the odds of anything bad actually happening is very slim, it CAN happen. The main danger in astral projection is that while your "spirit" is off traveling, you body is empty and unprotected and can very easily be occupied by another spirit that may be in the vicinity. The other possible danger is that while you're on the etheric plane, you may encounter a more negative spirit and if you are attacked or threatened, unless you really know "psychic self-defense", you are also very vulnerable.
To answer the first part of that question, you can never be sure it won't return. Much of what you DO can be a factor. The less you do to draw it back, the less the odds are it will come back but there's no guarantee it won't come back without reason or provocation. As I've stated a few times throughout these pages, once you've been subjected to demonic or diabolical activity. you are more vulnerable to future attacks/infestations. But, again, unfortunately, nothing says it can't or won't come back. As to the second part of the question: Just like people demonic spirits have a personality, an "MO". Someone with a keen eye and attention to detail should be able to notice there there are differences is activity, time frames, etc. A legitimate psychic should also be able to sense if there are one or multiple spirits present.
If you truly believe something is trying to harm you, or you feel threatened, try using a few of the self-protection methods listed on my Self-protection page. If they have no effect or not enough effect to make you comfortable, you could always go to a church of your denomination and ask to be blessed. Getting yourself bless often is a good way to resolve some issues along these lines. You could also have a legitimate psychic come into your home and see if they can more accurately pinpoint the source of the problem and assist you in resolving the issue either by helping directly or getting you in touch with a person local to your area that can help. E-mail me if you'd need further help or info.
I was wondering if you knew anything about certain smells indicating demons present, particularly the smell of oranges. I once read, but I cant remember where that this smell or the smell of excrement coming up out of nowhere indicates the presence of the devil according to the Catholic religion. Have you ever heard about or read this anywhere?
I must say that I'm not overly familiar with the correlation between orange or citrus smells with demonic presence. However, it is common for vile smells such as excrement, rotten meat or flesh, sulfur or the like to mark the presence of a demonic or diabolical spirit. Not only has this written by the Catholics but it has also been experienced by most investigative teams that have run into spirits of this nature.
First, you stated that only a church official is a true demonologist. But, what about Ed Warren? I have visited the Warren`s site (from which I linked to your`s) and read the case files there. Is Mr. Warren classified as a demonologist even though he is a layman? Second, suppose there was someone who was not only familiar with Christianity but had an intimate knowledge of all mankind's religions as well as a profound understanding of every aspect of the occult. And, lets say, for example, this person had psychic, psionic and spiritual abilities never seen before and who could use these abilities to access and control the ambient energies of the universe. Would it be possible for him/her to engage a demon in combat and win?
Surprisingly, you're the first person to ask the question about the demonologist issue. In all reality, no one outside the church would be considered a demonologist in the church's eye. Ed Warren would be one exception to the rule however. He knows more about the demonology than many church officials and he has worked with them too many times NOT to be considered a true demonologist. Of all the people I've worked with, he is, by far, the most knowledgeable. Regarding your second question, to put it simply, if you don't have the power of goodness working for you, a PERSON could never beat a demonic spirit. Not even a priest, without the grace of God behind him, can defeat one. Many people feel that they can combat demonic or diabolical spirits by themselves and from all I've experienced, that cannot happen without calling the powers of goodness to act FOR them.
Excellent question. That is one of the most confusing and toughest decisions someone can make. Before any conclusion regarding exorcism can be made, the person must go through both physical and psychological tests. Often, exorcism has been confused with schizophrenia, Multiple Personality Disorder (MPD) or Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID). Thorough psychological test should be performed by a licensed psychiatrist to rule out those possibilities. If the person is proven to not have any disorders such as those, then you can start looking into the possibility of possession. There are a few tricks that sometimes work, when a person is TRULY demonically possessed, that will reveal the nature of the possessing spirit. One of the easiest is the use of holy items near the possessed person... but be warned, using holy items near a demonically possessed person can lead to extreme violence and someone could be seriously injured or killed during outbursts such as that. A few other thoughts on this subject: Possession is not normal a CONTINUOUS occurrence, once a person has possessed the first time, they are now a door for the spirit to walk in and out at free will, possession happens usually for short periods of time; also, A person who is truly possessed does not normally know they're possessed or remember what they did during the time of possession, they'll normally complain of "missing time"; and lastly, I hear this alot during investigations, don't confuse hearing thoughts and words spoken to you as possession... to be possessed is one thing, to hear voices telling you to do things or say things is different.
For years I've thought my house was haunted. Cold chills and the feeling of someone watching me as I lay in bed. Some nights I wake up, and my room is a ice box, I get up and go to the next room and its nice and warm.....normal. A couple of times I've woke up and I am paralyzed. I try to call out to my girlfriend to push me or shake me but I can't even talk. My once loud voice turns into a extremely quiet whisper. This helpless feeling could be contributed to sleep paralysis but I KNOW I'm awake. My family was the first and only to live there. This leads me to believe its something about the land that the house is on. Graveyards around the house but I think that is way to simple of an answer. And now my girlfriend and her best friend want to try out the Ouija board in my basement. I say screw that! Whatever lies semi-dormant in my house I do not want to awaken. I know this is a long question but I need a perspective on this issue at least.
Sounds like you already know the answers to your questions Chad, but yes, I agree with you. There is a VERY good chance that, if there is a spirit in your house, that it's because of your proximity to the graveyards. Nothing says a spirit has to stay in or near a graveyard if they have not passed over and from what you mentioned, you are obviously sensitive enough to feel that they are there. I also agree that you should NOT let your girlfriend use the oiuja board in the house, that may prove to be very dangerous. If you're already experiencing activity of one form or another in the house, using the ouija board may only make it more active.
It is well known that Hitler, and the Nazi Reich were very heavily involved in the occult. Many people believe that Hitler was an incarnation of the Anti-Christ. Based on what I know about Hitler, I would say that he, without a doubt, was evil incarnate and it would not surprise me if he sold his soul to achieve the power he achieved but only HE knows exactly what he did.
Native Americans are, by nature, much more in tune to supernatural and natural possibilities than are "modern day" Americans (in my opinion). I think ALL people, for the most part, are sensitive to one extent or another, just because we're all human, but because native American upbringing has typically been much different than modern day American upbringing, I believe that native Americans are generally more open and willing to accept the possibility than many American cultures. In short, YES.
Old schoolhouses have definitely been known to be haunted. Not that every old schoolhouse is, but many people that have lived in old schoolhouses have complained of haunting activity. If you are absolutely sure these cold spots do not have a rational explanation, the cold spots very well could indicate a spirit presence. BUT, just because something may appear to be "perverted" doesn't necessarily mean it's demonic in nature. Many human spirits have been known to be reasonably aggressive, in a sexual way. If you feel, however, that this is indeed a demonic spirit, I would recommend ensuring you have a supply of holy water on hand, a blessed cross or crucifix and work on having a priest, minister, or the like perform a blessing of your entire house.
I know that sometimes there's a reasonable explanation for most things, but I need to know if there is for my situation. I am always hearing things, seeing forms or mists, and I'm always cold or the hairs on my neck will stand on end every now and them. I have at least a dozen cold spots in my house too. Also things will just disappear and not return for some time and if they do return its in a totally weird spot. My animals seem to feel as if there's a presence too. You know how they say cat mostly sense the presence before humans do, well my cats will just stare at the wall or ceiling at nothing. I'll call them and they won't move. I do every thing and they won't move or even blink! So please tell me am I completely crazy or is there something going on? Please I need some help!
Based on what you've mentioned, there are indications that you've got a spirit in the house. No, I wouldn't say you're crazy. Although there are always natural explanations for many things of this nature, your description of events definitely matches the behavior and activity patterns of a spirit. I do not want to jump to any strict conclusions here, please understand that. Also, based on what you're indicating, I would say that if this IS, in fact, caused by spirit activity, you most likely have a ghost in the house, nothing worse. In a situation like this, if you do not want these types of occurrences to continue, I would recommend just TELLING it, out loud (as weird as that might seem), that it is not welcome in your home. Tell it it needs to cross over, to go to the light, things of that nature. The last thing you'd want to do is to "play" with it, try to communicate with it, or try to get friendly with it. That would only make the recognition factor much higher and most likely, activity will increase. You should tell it to leave as often and as long as you have to until it does actually go... just like "real" people, if you tell them something often enough and long enough, the point may finally sink in. If you need more assistance, e-mail or call me.
Being raised a Catholic, I was always taught that if you commit suicide, you go to hell. Their reasoning for that is that only God has the right to take a life so if you take your own, you are, in effect, playing God. Looking at it from that aspect, that makes sense. BUT, I don't necessarily believe in that. I believe that whatever would drive a person to commit suicide, whether it be deep depression, feelings of complete hopelessness, or what have you, would be understood by God. I believe that you do not go to hell but instead remain earthbound until your "normal date of death" (the predetermined day you were meant to die). Only until that day will you then be able to cross over (one way or another). As far as whether or not you'd be good or evil, I believe how a person LIVES their life will determine that, not how they end their life. In some cultures, self sacrifice is considered an honor so who's to say who's good and who's evil based on that. No one knows the true answers to a question such as this and every person will have their own belief, this is mine. I, personally, would ALWAYS discourage someone from attempting that though. Life is too short and too precious to be wasted on what usually turns out to be a minor "bump in the road".
My dad passed away four years ago and ever since then I feel a presence in the house. Sometimes things will happen like one day I couldn't figure out my homework and then I went to the bathroom and the problem I couldn't get was done for me!!! And I always feel safe if there is a thunderstorm and the power goes out or something. My mom thinks I'm crazy cuz she says he has no unfinished business so it can't be him. And she is always asking me why didn't he go to heaven and why did he stay here. I think he is looking out for us. I just wanted to know your opinion so I could tell my mom and by satisfied myself.
It is very possible that your dad is still present, yes. Your mom and dad may not have had any unfinished business remaining but that does not necessarily mean he's crossed over. It's common for family members who die to stay around to ensure their families are dealing with the tragedy okay. It sound to me that, based on what you're mentioning, your dad may still be there, keeping an eye out for you. IF, in fact, it is him there... you may want to try to tell him to cross over now... if you're ready to do that. There may be some unfinished business between you and him that you're not even aware of, something unfinished for HIM. But, he needs to cross over now... if the link concerning him still being there is you, YOU may be able to talk him into crossing over, to go where he belongs now and where people are waiting for him.
Yes. Although portions of the movie were obviously "Hollywood-ized", the movie is based on a true story. I wrote a little about this in the Exorcism section on the Demonology page. The History Channel produced a very informative, hour long special about the actual events that took place, you may be able to order the video tape on that segment.
I have a relative who's read the book The Demonologist and he won't let me read the book or won't give me any details about the book. He told me that after he read it that it quite changed things in life around for him and the book scared him quite bit. What I was wanting to know is what is so terrible in that book that he does not want to let me know or read about? I know about the doll Annabelle What's become of that doll and What's become of the Amityville house does it still stand?
Nothing in the book is outright "terrible" but there are many detailed accounts about what, and how people were, effected by demonic spirits and the way it is written has a way of rattling a person to the core. The book has been known to keep people from sleeping at night. The Annabelle doll is in a protective case located in the Warren's occult museum and yes, the Amtiyville house still stands as it was in the past, but the infamous windows have been changed to normal rectangular windows.
Remember that demonic spirits are liars; very rarely will they disclose their true identity. From my research though, I have come across this name in the past and although I do not know for sure if the real name was used in the book, I would tend to say I doubt it. Most of the names used in the book have been changed for obvious reasons and I would lean towards the fact that the actual demon name Ed conversed with was not disclosed.
What are the true forms of demons? Are they beings of energy with intelligence or are they creatures comprised of matter? Whichever is true I'm guessing they can shape themselves into any thing they choose, right? And because fear is a powerful weapon, the more twisted and horrible they appear the better. Also, has anyone ever captured on film a demon who has "physically" manifested? Would it be safe to publish this photo?
I guess the closest thing that I could say that they are made of would be energy... negative energy. I think if we really knew the true answer to that, we'd be able to find a more concrete way of PROVING their existence. But yes, they can manifest in almost any shape they'd want you to see them and yes, because they feed on fear and negative energy, they will, as often as is possible, present themselves in a way most fearful to the person viewing them. There are three pictures of demonic spirits on my this site, photos page 5. They are, of course, not the cloven feet, horns and spaded tail pics you'd expect but they are true demonic photographs. It is safe to publish these particular photos... I would not have done so if I thought otherwise, although a few I have that are more "detailed" I have not published for that reason.
I do not mean to sound provocative in any way, and if I happen to offend you, please forgive me. About 2 or 3 days ago I visited this question and answer page and read one of the questions asked by a person named Steve or Stevie B. And his/her question about relics and crucifixes made me think: If any kind or amount of faith is brought by these types of objects, then don't think that the faith is for the objects? I know that Jesus emphasized tremendously on faith. Many times he would ask a sick person if they believe he could heal them. If they believed or had faith, then they would be healed. But I have never found anything in the Bible about holy relics. Please post this question up on the website because I have no e-mail address.
No offense or provocation inferred , thank you. The Q&A posting you referred to has been removed because that person appeared to be more interested in getting into a debate and insults than asking informational questions and this is not the place for debates. I would have enjoyed debating with that person over e-mail but they did not include an e-mail address with the submissions. My intent with these pages is not to argue about bible scripture, instead, it is to disseminate information on what has been proven to work in helping people. In no way am I saying that the use of relics, crucifixes or the like should ever be idolized. Faith should not be placed in /on an item, it should be in the power of goodness, of God, BEHIND the item. Most people, I hope, would understand that. Without true faith in a persons "Higher Power" none of these items are of any use, and I do make that clear in other pages on the site. Your statement concerning "if they had faith, they would be healed" I do not consider completely accurate. If that were the case, exorcisms would not be necessary (for the most part) and this whole line of "work" would not be needed. I've seen the most devout religious people under extreme conditions of demonic attack, faith alone does not keep a person safe from demonic attack. I understand you may not agree with this, and that is fine, everyone is entitled to their own opinions and beliefs but I do what's necessary to help people in times of need and what works in reality does not always fit into place with people who follow Bible scripture verse for verse. Again, I am not going to get into debates through this website about Bible scripture, I am a religious person, I have much faith in God, in what I do, and what I can do to help people and I speak from practical experience. Lastly, regarding relics... I don't understand your comment about no references to relics in the bible... what does that have to do with anything? Does that mean that relics aren't effective? They are VERY effective. The church itself uses relics. Thanks again for your input.n
That question really depends on who you ask but from what I've experienced, some people I've dealt with have had episodes of unexplained and un-accounted for blood loss. I've dealt with people that have been to the hospital to learn that they are losing blood but the source of the blood loss was never found. Assuming all normal, physical possibilities are ruled out, there are a few supernatural possibilities that could account for this, one of which I would classify as "psychic vampirism". Thanks for your kind words also, I did not post them here but it was MUCH appreciated!
That photo, if it's the same one I think it is, was taken many years ago when the Warrens first worked on the Annabelle case, that photo was taken as they were bringing the doll to be put in their museum. Yes, carrying it was scary for her, before during and after... she was thrown twenty feet through the air after dropping the doll off in their museum and was injured quite badly.
What are some other ways for banishing or to get rid of demons. I've tried blessing the house, I've told them they aren't welcome, I sprinkled salt in a circle around my bed and the house, nothing seems to be working. They just keep coming back. they say they are going to kill me and that I can't get rid of them. Please help.
If you truly have demonic spirits in your house, sprinkling salt or simply telling them they aren't welcome will do nothing to help. I'm not sure how they're telling you these things but the threat of them killing you is a mere scare tactic... the statement concerning you not getting rid of them is probably pretty accurate though. If, in fact, you do have demonic spirits in the house and you've tried using holy water and other holy objects to cleanse the house and it doesn't work, you may want to consider having a priest or minister (or the like) come into the home to bless it. There is only SO much you can do and if you've tried everything to no avail, you'll need outside assistance. If you'd like further assistance, please include an e-mail address with your submission so I can contact you directly.
Every person's interpretation of what hell is will vary but what is meant by the term "Light" is God's light, God's Word. You can have fire-light but not have God's Light, those are two completely different forms of light. That's really what is meant by that. I believe hell is actually being completely separated from God, to have His Light and His Word removed. To be truly alone. That is MY opinion but what matters most is that YOU have an opinion you truly believe in, based what what you've learned and what you've been told and you deep down believe this to be true. THAT'S what really matters.
Jessie, first of all, the big question is are you sure it's a poltergeist? There are certain key factors in determining whether or not it truly is poltergeist phenomena a person is experiencing, look on my spirit classifications page to see if what your friend is experiencing meets those poltergeist factors. What you mentioned also fits into the activity that can also be caused by a mischievous human spirit. If in fact it is a poltergeist though, they normally will not hurt a person although it is possible. Getting rid of them on the other hand is the most difficult thing to do. Normally poltergeist cases have to run their course but they do go away within a finite amount of time. Please e-mail me with more specifics if you need further assistance, I'll do what I can to help you/him.
Well, if not, I'll say this. You're in the wrong website. There are plenty of places where you can find that information but I do not assist people in this fashion. When you do find the information you're looking for and if you are successful in invoking spirits, I hope you also know how to get rid of them... if not, you know where to find me.
A few questions regarding exorcisms and other "anti-demon/devil" tools: Is Christianity and Judaism the only religions where exorcisms and other "anti-demon/devil" tools work and ever has worked? It would be very confusing for me if this wasn't the case. How would one know which religion was the one true religion from these facts alone then and why then does a Catholic exorcism work if an Islamic exorcism would also work? Then why are you still a Catholic (which I'm assuming you are but I haven't read the whole of your website yet) if I may ask? Is there convincing evidence for being a Christian or a Jew specifically in demonology, in the work that you do and all that you've come to know through this work and field? - Thank you so much for your response.
Great questions. No, Christianity and Judaism are not the only religions that have some form of technique for combating evil forces. Almost all major (and many minor) religious denominations have some official rituals of such a nature. The Roman Catholics have, through the progression of time, been widely accepted as the subject matter experts in this field but there is nothing indicative that any one religious denomination's ceremonies and rituals are more potent at fighting off evil than another. Along those lines, in MY view, no "one" religion is "better" or "more right" than another... we all worship a higher power, that higher power is the same, we just have different names and ways of practicing our faith. To answer your questions about why one religious exorcism would work when another doesn't; in my opinion it has less to do with religious denomination and more to do with the experience and knowledge of the person performing the ritual and their abilities to best and most effectively USE the ritual as it is intended. Why am I a Catholic? Because I was born a Catholic, was raised a Catholic and believe in the true meaning behind it. No, there is nothing specific about the religious denomination of a person involved with demonology... only that you believe in a higher and the power of goodness.
Well, first, witches and warlocks are two entirely different things. Witches can be white, grey, or black, depending on their flavor of belief where-as warlocks are typically negative in nature. Speaking in terms of witches and witchcraft, you should never confuse them as solely being negative in nature because they're not. Assuming you are talking about black witchcraft (black witches) and warlocks, yes, they do typically make a pact with negative forces, though not necessarily Satan... they could make a pact with any demon or devil that best suits their class of darkness. Usually, that pact IS made for purposes of greater power or greed but also is done for various other reasons like revenge, hatred, guilt, etc. I wouldn't go so far as to say that they wouldn't repent either. Many "good" people make "bad" choices in their lives and I've seen many satanists, devil worshippers, black magicians and witches, and warlocks change their lives for the better. Also, should a person like that decide to repent, change their ways, and denounce the powers or darkness, they usually are able to do so... but they, in one way or another, usually pay a price for their wrong-doings. They may have saved their souls but the powers of darkness don't give in without a fight and often make it a point to ensure that the person who has denounced them suffer in one way or another. Hope this helps.
Well Jessie, for the most part the color of a ghost doesn't mean much. The only real exception to that is black. A black ghost, also know as a shadow ghost is typically associated with an inhuman spirit... a demonic spirit. I've seen many different colored spirits and despite their color, they all are fundamentally the same. Gray, white, Tan... etc... they are all human spirits and like living people, any spirit can get upset or can be helpful, color doesn't matter. Black, or shadow, ghosts can cause harm though but only in the MOST severe instances will any negative (demonic or diabolical) spirit kill anyone. Only an inhuman spirit has that capability to do something that extreme directly but rarely does anything that extreme actually happen.
