There are several types of evil hauntings that you may run across especially if you are pursuing the paranormal or if you are involved in any type of spiritual or supernatural endeavor. I have been involved in the world of the paranormal my entire life as my first experiences began before my recollection of the ages that occurrences took place, according to my mother. I do, however, recall one such occurrence at the age of 4 and then many others beginning at 7 years old, and it's been consistent ever since. I have had experiences with the negative side of the paranormal world more times than I can count, but this has helped me gain great knowledge and insight into not just what lurks in the paranormal world, but also how to protect myself and avoid future issues. Of course avoiding these issues is sometimes not that easy to do if you are deeply involved in paranormal activities. I decided to write this blog post in hopes of helping others to protect themselves, and even better, yet totally steer clear from negative energies that could really cause harm to not only themselves, but their family members as well. I have always said that knowledge is power and reading this blog will hopefully empower you to protect yourself against the negative forces of the supernatural worlds by means of further education.
So not everybody is involved in paranormal endeavors - the majority of people are not involved. Usually, for the majority of the population, coming across a haunting is rare. You may move into an apartment or house and find yourself in a situation where a ghost is present, and according to your past experiences with anything of this sort, you may find yourself very frightened or not frightened at all. Of course, a lot of it has to do with what you are being haunted by and how powerful this particular spirit is. There are many factors that go into a haunting so many things need to be taken into consideration. However, a regular haunting will usually not cause too much of a disturbance and many people are capable of learning to live with the ghost peacefully. On very rare occasions a person may find themselves bunking with a spirit that is a little more on the negative side and hard to handle. These could be human spirits that are angry, jealous or show other negative emotions such as feeling that they have been slighted and are looking for some type of acknowledgement, revenge or they may be going for the old misery loves company trick. Other negative entities could include other-worldly entities that have come from different dimensions, worlds, or could be a different type of species all together. You could also be very unlucky and come across a demon or a poltergeist. These things are extremely rare even for people that are quite involved in the paranormal.
If you are involved in the paranormal world because you are a paranormal investigator, researcher or a psychic; perhaps even a spiritual teacher, then the chances of you running across negative energy is a little higher. As I stated before there are many factors that go into play when weighing out the odds of coming across an evil spirit or some negative energy that can really cause you some serious problems. The amount of work that you do in the paranormal field plays a big part. Knowing how to protect yourself in the first place from negative energies and entities plays a huge part. The deeper you delve into the paranormal world, the more and more you place yourself at a much higher risk of coming across all kinds of entities including evil ones. Your location could play a large part in being discovered by an evil entity. Your state of mind can also attract negative entities. What I mean by your state of mind is your emotional state such as depression and anxiety and it could also refer to medications that may alter your emotional and mental state of being. Also a big one is being under the influence of drugs or alcohol as this literally lowers your vibrational rate. Negative energies vibrate at lower rates so you begin to match their vibrational states of being. These lower energy beings find that very attractive and that is what they seek out. They want to find beings that are easy prey and by doing so you become that prey.
So if you are not involved in anything paranormal - you may just run across the occasional haunted house or establishment. With a "normal" haunting, you probably won't have anything to worry about as you and the ghost can more than likely live side by side in peace. After some time, things usually quiet down as many hauntings go dormant.
If you are involved in the paranormal world, then you need to take measures to learn psychic protection and empower yourself with knowledge. There are many methods of psychic protection and you should learn every single one of them. Then after learning them, you should practice them often as the more you practice, the more powerful your protection becomes. Even with the strongest of protection, nasty, malevolent entities can always find loopholes and break through your toughest barriers. Will you be ready for them then? Even working closely with an angel - such as the all mighty Archangel Michael, is not infallible protection against negative attacks. Reading up on the paranormal is a good place to start but even better is learning from a teacher - someone experienced in the darker side of the paranormal, as this person has experience with what could come at you and how to defend yourself.
This post isn't about learning the actual protection methods as this would take quite some time and lots of practice, but more about the types of negative energies and entities that you can come across during your paranormal work and what to look out for. This will help to keep you away from these entities and shed some light on protection methods by empowering your knowledge arsenal. If you do any type of psychic work - protect yourself! Even meditation is something that you need to put protection in place for. Whether or not you are involved with the paranormal - the paranormal is all around you; even if you cannot see it, hear it or sense it.
So when most people think of an evil paranormal entity, the word demon usually comes to mind first. Mostly everyone is aware that a demon is no joke - certainly nothing to mess around with - unless you're absolutely insane and hey - maybe you are. Did you know that demons actually have 'friends'? Since demons usually do not haunt locations, their target is a person. They look for people easy to influence, people that are already negative because that makes their job easier for them. Some demons that are more ambitious or that are higher up on the hierarchy line, set their sights higher and will choose a victim that would be much harder to gain influence over such as a priest or someone who is strong in faith. That is considered a much bigger 'catch' for them and the rewards are also much bigger. If a demon invests their time and effort into haunting someone you can bet they will stay the course and continue to drag their victim down, down, down as far as they can until death do they part - and if they can take that soul with them, then not even in death will they part ways. So if someone interferes with a demon’s hard labor that they take extremely seriously, that demon will not hesitate to make you back off. They will usually not have to put much effort into doing so as they are scarier than hell. (Pardon the pun) Demons can also call in their 'friends' that are looking for a new assignment and now you could possibly be the target of a demonic interest. How tempting of a target are you to a demonic force on both ends of the spectrum?
I have met many people in this field who have said to me that a demon would not frighten them and they would show them who is boss to one extent or another. That is great and all, but first of off, until you have actually had contact with a real demon, you may change your mind about what you said. Secondly, if a demon thinks you may not be so easy to frighten, that will not deter them; rather you may become more appealing to them. They WILL find a way to get to you and break you down. They will go after the people you love the most first if that’s what it takes. Demons don't play nice, fair, or alone as they work in hellish groups. They have a hierarchy and a military system in place. Many demon generals rule over legions of other demons. Do you know how many demons are in just one legion? There are 6,666 demons in one legion and some demon generals or fallen angels control 80 legions, give or take a bunch. There are plenty to go around and many times a possessed person will have 20 demons that are dwelling within. Sounds like a scary sci-fi but it is not. Fallen angels are extremely intelligent and possess powers far greater than a human. They are not someone to try to play around with. Fallen angels control their demons and imps which means they are even stronger and are always out looking for an opportunity. Make sure that you are not their next opportunity.
The best defense against a demon is to stay clear. Don't do anything that may attract this kind of entity to you in the first place. Of course sometimes you don't even have to do anything in order to find yourself in the company of a demon, but that is extremely unlikely. Trying to get rid of a demonic presence once it has decided to enlist you as their pursuit is more than extremely difficult. It's just so hard not to play right along with them and give them what they want. They live for your misery and they know exactly what your fears are. They know where your weaknesses lie. They understand the way you think. They know what holds meaning to you. They also know all of your deepest, darkest secrets and they can and certainly will use every single bit of it again you and in their favor. They are not novices. They are experts at what they do and they have many advantages over you that you probably don't even realize. I just named a few; however, they are located in the spirit worlds so it is easy for them to have a big influence over your subconscious mind and thoughts. If you're fighting a demon, you need to be one very strong-minded and gutsy individual to say the least.
The good news is that as long as you are not completely in a state of manic despair or total mind intoxication, they cannot take over your life just like that. Demons need to abide by universal law so they cannot automatically disarm your free will. Just a note: you open up lots of ambiguity when your mind is under the influence of anything that will alter it. They can however, influence you to give up your free will. By influence, it is more like terrorize you to give it up. They also know the system inside and out so they somehow manage to find loopholes to work through to bypass these laws. This usually results in your indirect invitation to them. So where's this good news? A demon needs to worm their way into your vessel little by little unless you do something really stupid that will totally accelerate their takeover plans. There are stages of possession that they must go through. How long each stage lasts is entirely up to you. A demon will stick with you like glue. Nothing will deter them except your strong will, unless that makes you more of a tempting target - or an exorcism, but even that is not a guarantee.
Do not invite a demon into your life. I know, I can hear you - who would be stupid enough to do that? You'd be surprised. Most invitations are purely by accident or something you would never even consider an invitation. If a demonic presence is scaring the hell into you and your family, say your young children - as a loving, concerned and scared crapless parent, you may tell the entity to scare you instead of your children. That is an instant invitation and consent to posses. People will many times demand an entity to prove they are there. To a demonic entity, that is an invitation. Just being in the wrong place at the wrong time can get you into serious trouble. If you are stone cold drunk or strung out on extracurricular activities and you are in a location where any malevolent entity lurks, you have a good chance of bringing home a new beastly pet, only you'll be the pet with an unfit abusive owner.
Demons are very shifty characters. They can easily hide their presence even from psychics and mediums. They can also masquerade as a loved one. These are stealthy tactics they employ in order to dig their claws into you to gain a solid foothold and you won't even know in most cases. Some demon’s methods are just plain brutal and they will come at you full force right from the start. That method usually goes hand- in-hand with an invitation such as using a ouija board, a pendulum or tarot cards if you do not know how to protect yourself and utilize the assistance of a trusted guide or angel. Of course in the world of spirit versus human interaction, there are no rules so you have to be prepared for anything.
Psychic protection along with a psychic shield can deter a demon; especially if your protection is very strong, as it shows the demon you take your protection seriously, but there are always two sides of the coin. To other demons, that strong protection and life value just make you more of a challenge and prize. The former seems to be the more popular method among demons. Once a demon has tainted you, your protection will be weakened quickly and your energy will be drained a lot faster, so much more effort will be needed. An oppression usually results in your protection being nullified. You should always engage in the protection of Archangel Michael right from the start and make him part of your daily life. So in a nutshell, stay clear from demons right from the start. Keep your psychic protection strong and your mind and will stronger.
Another very malevolent type of entity that you could run across if you dabble further into the world of the paranormal are entities from other dimensions. Some of these entities are worse than demons, but most of them have no interest in possessing you. There are a slew of these entities in many different types and forms. They literally come from all over the place and have a varied range of reasons that they would become aware and interested in you. The good news is that it is more than extremely rare to even come across one of these entities let alone manage to capture their attention. In the majority of these cases you'd have to be directly in their business, which you could be depending on your area of research; or it could be your incarnated status that holds their interest. This doesn't necessarily mean that you need to be a prominent person or hold a seat in power. Regular Joe Schmoe could be on their wanted list and he may never even know why, but there is usually a reason if it is an incarnate instance. Incarnate attachments are usually for life. These beings could also be interested in collecting a karmic debt.
The hardest part about trying to deal with these beings is that they are unaffected by religion, and exorcism is a joke to them. Psychic protection is more effective; however this usually only serves to keep them at bay by masking your spiritual beacon. If you are good at summoning other entities to help you out, this could be quite effective, but you will need to know what you are dealing with in order to summon the correct help. Also' summoning beings could be one of the reasons you could find yourself in this situation to begin with, kind of like a catch 22.
Many times if you find this new type of 'friend', and you've obtained their 'friendship' through your area of spiritual work and you've tried other methods to end that friendship which didn't work, then ceasing your spiritual endeavors in the areas in question could end the relationship. Once again, you need to know what they are interested in but many researchers who get to this point probably have a good idea.
These beings are malevolent but they do not usually behave as savage as a demon would. Yes they certainly can influence your loved ones and have them 'pay' for your doings, but their methods are more subtle and stealthy. I'd say these beings are of a much higher status than demonic beings but both are more than deadly.
