A description of the characteristics of demons and the signs and symptoms that they can inflict.
A “Demon” was originally a Greek term which meant a wise, guardian spirit. In present day spiritualism and parapsychology, the word represents an entity which appears to have a malicious and resentful nature and is generally, though not always, of a non-human origin.
A Description of Demonic Behavior
Demons can be violent and unstable creatures and as spirits, they are parasites. Though they will sometimes completely possess a person, they mostly prefer to simply attach themselves like a leech, feeding on a persons energy which in turn gives them power. Symptoms of demonic attachment include: Energy loss, fatigue, paranoia, depression and irritability.
They are intelligent enough to know not to take so much energy that they kill they the individual, nevertheless their effect can be quite debilitating. Attachment can be hereditary or demons can be brought through from past incarnations and in these cases, symptoms can be seen during early infancy.
Demons may also attach during periods of extreme emotional, mental or physical trauma. Extreme measures are often required to remove these creatures since all methods of regular exorcism can at times be ineffective.
What Are The Characteristics of Demons?
- They seem interested in, and often resentful (perhaps envious?) of living human beings.
- Although they have been known to inflict minor physical injuries on people, such as scratches, welts, bruises and even what appear to be bite marks, primarily they assault the human mind through oppressive anxiety and fear, feeding on and exacerbating negative thoughts and feelings which may already be present, leaving energies that can then manifest into physical illness.
They sometimes make their presence known through our senses, such as inexplicable foul odors (glamors) and low guttural growling which have on occasion been recorded by ghost hunters.
Demons may exist as a “quasi life-form,” intelligent, though not capable of reasoning in the same way as human beings, and existing outside the boundaries of our experience of linear time and vibration.
An exorcism or spiritual cleansing may provide a remedy, either temporary or permanent, against demonic infestation by making the environment hostile for the entity or entities and by removing those already present and relocating them back to the realm from whence they came.
The Contrast Between Darkness and Light
Since time unfolded there has been a play with duality and the contrast between good and bad, for better or worse in relation to mankind.
Believe what you may but demons in many names and forms do exist and operate here on earth in order to bring about a balance between darkness and light, good and evil which teaches us about duality. In the course of our work as entity clearers, we deal with negative Devils, Imps, Demons etc regularly and whilst these often cause debilitating symptoms in their hosts, the odd few do seem to put things right and in particular the Demonic “Angelic” hierarchy. Demons have a hierarchy much the same as that of the Arch Angels and the main purpose of these higher beings appears to relate to balance and protection of the Dark side, not always with evil undertones.
Demons are present in order to teach us about the darkness in contrast with the light and whilst many people perceive & recall demons as being grotesque, foul smelling, evil eyed beings, this is not the only way that these beings present. Demons come in many shapes, sizes & looks but it is generally not their role to scare you with their appearance like some kind of “boogeyman”.
The more powerful of demons will use their darker charms to seduce their hosts and draw them in so that they might then be manipulated to do their bidding. This would be difficult in the form of an eight foot snarling beast and so they must find more acceptable and charismatic ways of presenting themselves.
A phenomenal amount of myth and legend surrounds the topic of devils and demons and it must be said that they generally do not feast on the blood or body of their host, nor do they seek to sacrifice them to their Higher Master. We however do give them power with the negative aspects of our lives and our hang ups and vices that they seek to find and exacerbate in order to weaken us whilst satisfying their own wants and desires.
