Demonic activity is much more severe than hauntings by human ghosts. If the disturbances seem to escalate to unmanageable proportions and become violent, the chances are that the family is dealing with a demonic attack. Demon infestations cause serious physical, as well as psychological damage to family members. One of the most frequent phenomena associated with demonic hauntings are violent anti-religious manifestations with obscenities scribbled on walls and backwards on mirrors. Another red flag is a strong odor of feces and rotting flesh.
The ultimate aim of demon attacks is the possession of a human body. Note that the soul of a person cannot be possessed by a demon. The soul is the exclusive property of a human being and always retains its free will.
Any form of true demonic activity calls for an immediate consultation with religious figures followed by a religious exorcism. Virtually all mainstream religions, including qualified Native American spiritualist traditions have specialist exorcists. These are the priests, rabbis, imams or shamans who understand and practice the rituals necessary to exorcise demons.
Disturbances caused by earthbound human spirits (ghosts) are much milder than demonic disturbances, although if the invading spirit is the soul of a very evil person, it can still be quite malevolent. If an invading human spirit seems to follow a child or a young adolescent agent living in the home, the disturbances are usually of the poltergeist variety (either a human ghost or simply the results of a child’s native paranormal attributes) and are likely to fade over time and disappear within a few months. If the disturbances are relatively mild, last for a long time and remain confined to a home or particular area rather than following the movement of a living agent, then the family is probably dealing with a human ghost attached to the property. In both cases, the family should consult a reliable psychic who specializes in helping victims of paranormal disturbances.
If you hire a psychic, be careful! Don’t use any psychic unless they come recommended by a trusted source (see chapter 4)! There are always con artists ready to take advantage of vulnerable and desperate people.
