Much confusion surrounds the topic of psychic contamination and entity attachments. There are many ideas as to the essence and origin of these phenomena and the forces, emanating from beyond this plane of existence, that can enter and affect our lives. Theories abound regarding their nature; from them being discarnate beings and thought forms, to hooks and attachments, to psychic debris and imprints. While the opinions amongst those who study them are as varied as the phenomena discussed, there is agreement that there are disturbing and powerful forces, from outside the physical plane, that often invade our lives and permeate our environments. People want to believe that everything they think and feel is their own, coming from their own conscious or subconscious mind, but the evidence shows that these external forces can affect one’s thoughts, emotions, moods and dispositions.
What is an Entity?
For the purposes of this discussion, an entity is any psychic contaminant; anything perceived as outside of you that feeds off your energy or emotions. These emotions become the entities nourishment, their fuel source. It can be a thought form that has taken on a life of its own, environmental influences (the past remnants of severe emotional intensity), or external "dark entities" or "demonic forces".
Examples of "thought form" influences may include;
Examples of "environmental" influences may include;
These entities have never been alive in their own physical bodies, and are usually on a mission to incite negative and violent emotions. Commonly labeled as “Satan” or “Fallen Angels”, no one really knows where the dark energies come from. Some theories suggest that negative thought forms give dark forces the tools needed to create these beings. Other theories say is that they may be pan-dimensional beings that enter into this dimension through “doorways’ opened by negative emotions.
Demons rarely manifest themselves as they truly are. Their hatred, rage, and desire to feed upon chaos are hidden behind subtle and carefully chosen disguises, often manifesting in the guise of angelic beings. Rarely would anyone follow these creatures if they dared to show themselves.
Demons have an extensive knowledge of human nature and the psychology of man. Demons can size up an individual and determine a plan of destruction for an individual or group of individuals. Demons have the wisdom of the ages at their disposal and can draw upon that vast knowledge. With their penchant to exploit human weaknesses and their desire to feed upon negative energy these dark entities and demonic forces should be treated with deadly seriousness.
Dealing with Entity Attachments
Religious exorcism is mainly thought of as the rite of driving out the Devil and his demons from possessed persons. Exorcism is mainly performed in incidences of demonic possession that is generally distinguished from spiritual possession. A general assumption is that the Roman Catholic singularly practices the rite of exorcism, but some Protestant denominations such as the Pentecostals and other charismatic groups practice it as well. These groups refer to the practice as "deliverance ministry" where gifted people drive out devils and heal while they touch the persons with their hands, ("laying on of hands") and pray over them.
The greatest danger to the exorcist is becoming possessed by the Devil or demon himself. This is the reason why the exorcist must feel as free of sin as possible and feel no secret need for punishment. Otherwise, the Devil or demon can easily entrap him. The former Jesuit priest and professor, Malachi Martin, stated in his book "Hostage to the Devil" that much of the success of the exorcism depends upon the exorcist. To Martin, the most important thing is the exorcist's disposition and those of his assistants. Very few experienced exorcists would ever choose to work alone.
The ritual of exorcism is more cautiously employed by the Catholic Church at present than it once was. When reviewing the conditions for demonic possession that were once listed one can easily see many of the symptoms are those of epilepsy, hysteria, schizophrenia, and other psychological disorders. So priests are cautioned to be as certain as possible the person is truly demonically possessed before performing the ritual.
Spirit release or secular exorcism differs fundamentally from religious exorcism in that it attaches no blame to the patient, is less traumatic for the patient and moves the attached spirit to an appropriate place for the spirit identified, rather than expelling it from the patient only to wander and attach to someone else.
Spirit Release Therapy (SRT) involves identifying the spirit, the reason for attaching itself and detaching it. This form of spirit release is not new; it has been practiced by psychics and shamans all over the world throughout history.
After removal further sessions of energy healing maybe required to the physical body, emotional state and aura to strengthen, balance, cleanse and protect. Also if the spirit has attached for a particular reason that reason may need addressing so that other such spirits do not attach for the same reason in the future.
However, the best way of dealing with entity attachments is...
...TO NOT GET ATTACHED IN THE FIRST PLACE.
Although spirit and demonic attachments happen to people through no fault of their own, many people actually “invite” these attachments through their ignorance, arrogance and stupidity.
Many people today suffer from negative spirit attachments because they simply do not know what they are doing or whom they are dealing with. They may be ignorant of the forces involved and not know how to deal with them when they are encountered. They may think they know and understand these forces and meet them with an arrogant attitude of believing they can easily deal with them and keep them at bay. Or, they may just draw them into their own energy fields by reckless behavior.
There are those who wish to "experiment” with Spiritualism. (The practice by which the spirits of departed mortals communicate with the living and the living can conversely communicate with the dead.) As stated before; “demons rarely manifest themselves as they truly are” and the untrained individual can literally open the door to these malevolent entities,masquerading as angelic beings, who wish to enter in order to cause emotional turmoil which they will then feed upon. The Ouija board is a classic example.
Ouija boards and séances have been used by thousands of people untrained in spirit communication. Both forms of communication are dangerous because they are usually uncontrolled forms of communication. Most often the spirits are those who reside on "the lower astral plane". These spirits are often very confused and may have died a sudden violent death, often through murder or suicide and there may be violent, negative and potentially dangerous conditions present when using these methods.
The same warning applies to the use of mirrors in attemping spirit communication. Since ancient times mirrors have been used for divination and magic and are feared in many cultures for being able to steal the soul and should be covered when doing any spirit work. Many people have reported images of beings reflected in the mirror and believe these images to be spirits either trapped in the mirror or attempting to use the mirror as a portal, but since there are those who use mirrors in psychic attacks it would be prudent not to communicate with spirits using a mirror as a portal.
Another problem area is in the field of “Energy Healing”. There are many practitioners of energy healing who are meticulously and systemaically trained, over many years, in scientifically as well as spiritually based energy healing modalities. Unfortunately, there are many more so called light workers who practice energy healing with little training and virtually no understanding of the energies and forces they are dealing with. For example, many people who rush through Reiki training end up being a danger to themselves and others. If they are given any instruction at all in dealing with negative energies they are merely told to surround themselves in “white light” and that there is no possibility of any negative energy being able to enter and work against them. Since they are motivated by something other than a desire for deep spiritual understanding, they believe themselves to be invincible and end up creating an unbalanced state within themselves and sending that energy into their clients when they work with them.
Sadly, the most significant source of negative entity attachment often comes from foolish and reckless behavior. You do not need to live a life of drunken sexual violence and debauchery. You can do just as much damage sitting on the couch and twiddling your thumbs and worse, you can sit back and watch while your children do it. When you "play" aggressive and violent video games you are manifesting aggressive and violent thoughts in a mindless and undiscerning manner. You have no thought of controlling those emotions and are most likely trying to intensify them for the purpose of being able to win “the game”. In actuality, you are offering yourself up as a free buffet of negative energies for entities to come and feed upon. GAME OVER! .
In conclusion; there is no divine light, no sacred prayer, no sorcerer’s bane, no mystical shield, no magical talisman, no hallowed circle, no purifying incense and no holy water that is an impenetrable wall of psychic armor. Protection only comes from a proper disposition, a clear mind, an informed perspective and an awareness of your own strengths and weaknesses and those of the psychic emulators you may encounter.
When you use the Way to conquer the world,
Your demons will lose their power to harm.
It is not that they lose their power as such,
But that they will not harm others;
Because they will not harm others,
You will not harm others:
When neither you nor your demons can do harm,
You will be at peace with them.
