I grew up in an atheistic environment of the Soviet Union. The very first book I read when at the age of fifteen my family crossed the iron curtain was the Old Testament. I got it from the missionaries in Italy where I spent six month before coming to the United States. I was fascinated by everything religious, spiritual, mystical and metaphysical and was on a quest for the Truth ever since.
When I begun practicing yoga and doing meditation about three years ago I started experiencing significant psycho-spiritual changes. It fit the profile of what is described in some texts as the Kundalini Awakening. In February of 2006 I moved across the continent to Los Angeles, where I was immediately embraced by a very gifted and creative community of people interested in spirituality and creative arts. Some of my closer friends were medical doctors, college professors, and spiritual/yoga teachers and healers. They were teaching me things in a spontaneous and fun way, and invited me to partake in some practices which seemed spiritually benevolent and were also very amusing.
The psycho-spiritual process I was experiencing progressively got more intense. I increasingly felt amazing connection with people and the whole world. My intuitive abilities and skills as a healer flourished, my memory and analytical skills improved greatly. I was feeling oneness with the world, loving everything and everyone. I was feeling happier than I ever did. All was beautiful and well. Everyone’s face was glowing with beauty and wisdom. I was falling in love with every person I met. It seemed everyone was just as deeply falling in love with me too. Maybe that’s what enlightenment is supposed to be like, I thought. I pondered on how to go forward in a responsible way with new powers I seemed to be developing? Was this ‘normal’? So much was unknown. I trusted I would be shown the way when the time comes.
Things started to drastically shift in around mid-March of this year. At the same time I had a few puzzling experiences of feeling something energetic come in and out of me. On two occasions I actually saw ghost-like creatures enter my body from the mirror. Both of these incidents happened within one week, in a presence of a man I meet at the holistic conference, Conscious Life Expo, a year earlier. Robert suddenly re-emerged and wanted to hang out with me all the time. He called me a brother. Interesting coincidence was that he appeared exactly when my closest friend at that time, who also called me a brother, went out of the country for a month, to a Thailand. It turned out they were both members of the same community, a tribe I was already being introduced to. This synchronicity encouraged me to open up and confide in him right away. Within a month he became increasingly more possessive, manipulative and weird. He started asking me provocative, hypothetical questions, as ridiculous as: would I throw a banana skin on the ground. When I told him that I wouldn’t, he’d question my choice, arguing, ‘but it’s organic, it’ll decompose’. He asked me strange questions about my history. For example, if I’ve ever forced a kiss on a girl. (The answer was an honest ‘of course not’) He wanted to spend time alone in my car. One time he told me he wanted a friend that would jump out of the window if he asked him to. About a month since we first started spending time together our friendship ended abruptly when one evening I told him I was tired and wanted to go home yet he insisted that I stay with him. I confronted him with my growing suspicion that his interests in me were impure. At first, he tried to deny any aberration. When I persisted, to my astonishment, his face morphed into one that was very ugly, evil and lustful. It was unnatural, predominantly bluish in color and sweaty. He started leaning toward me. I felt energetically overwhelmed. Robert is one head taller than me, but this dominance was clearly supernatural, not physical. I got out of the car. He followed me. As I was walking away I felt a big energetic entity enter me from behind. It felt disgusting and extremely invasive. When I questioned him about this on the next day, he told me he did not know what happened.
Concurrently, I was more frequently experience what felt as telepathy with other members of the tribe, and soon, I was hearing voices even when I was home alone. I willingly believed that they belonged to spirit guides; my soul, even God/Goddess, as they claimed. They seemed benevolent and fun. I felt them coming in and out of me. Several times they’ve playfully touched me in a sexual way. I liked their encouragement and helpful tips. I accepted that they were agents of the spiritual tribe, here to guide me. Communication from them was verbal and in human voices of different characters of various age and gender. They had symbolic communication signals too. For example, when they agreed with my thoughts I heard birds singing, when they didn’t, I heard a flash of a toilet. When I was in a conversation with other people they ‘assisted’ me in bodily ways. My eye itched when they wanted me to make a special note of what I was looking at, my nose itched when a bad recommendation was presented to me, my head itched when I was guided to reconsider an idea I thought about more thoroughly. Sometimes messages came in as inserted thoughts. In time, I’ve learned to distinguish those from my own.
Eventually, voices became bossier. They led me to believe that my brothers wanted me to follow their instructions. These ‘brothers’ were people I still thought to be amazing and spiritually evolved beings, which obviously possess superhuman abilities. I was grateful to them for befriending me, helping me with my job, teaching me and catalyzing my spiritual growth. Still considering this a divine intervention, with reverence I paid attention and found a way to rationalize what was happening.
When voices cheered me on to be a ‘bull’, I figured I was encouraged to be more assertive and courageous – a good thing, I figured, considering I was chronically shy. I played that role for a couple of weeks, mostly at the music festivals and parties I was invited to by my ‘brothers’. These events were similar to the Burning Man, a modern hippie festival which takes place once a year in the desert of Nevada: electronic music, drugs, New Age activities and masquerade -- a huge carnival where anything and everything goes. I was not into the hedonistic aspect of these parties, but rather into learning by exploring as an observer.
More and more frequently, at these parties, I experienced a strange exchange with some people there, when I was merely standing or dancing next to them. They were obviously also aware of it and seemed to enjoy it. I was puzzled by this and asked around but got no straight answer. My theory at that time was that this was a sort of Tantric exchange of information and healing energy.
Voices encouraged me to stop talking to my old friends and family, and spend more time by myself, at home. Looking back, I realize voices exploited masterfully my isolation. Voices said they had my book of life. Days earlier, at one of the parties I was emphatically shown a drawing with a picture of a book, with ‘Life’ inscripted on it in Russian, my native language. Allegedly, I was groomed for my spiritual awakening and higher purpose, and I was not to waist time on what was unessential at the moment. The idea was that I would later re-enter the world as my more fully realized self.
Voices called me a beautiful man, a genius, most powerful man in the world, etc. At that point I was beginning to doubt their sincerity. When they announced that I was ‘God’, I tried to rationalize this by remembering the adage that there’s a spark of God in everyone. Voices proceeded to try to convince me that indeed I was ‘The God’. Therefore, they reasoned, I should be ‘an %¤#&!§-’ and rudely take what I wanted, without payment. They continued with their ‘guidance’, promoting competitiveness, pride, and cynicism. This was utterly against my value system. Fortunately, I had enough insight to hold back. Perhaps my character is been tested, I thought.
My ‘brothers’ started showing me how to seduce women, and alluded to offers of corrupt ventures. When I refused to use strategies I was shown and my newly gained psychic abilities to manipulate other people, voices called me a coward. Frustrated with my defiance, they started to make fun of me whenever I was nice to people, like when I said ‘thank you.’ They chanted mantra ‘it’s bull shit, it’s all bull shit’ when I even thought about anything loving or religious.
It got so bad I could not carry on with my work as a healer. Explaining to my patients that I needed some time to work on my personal process, I quit my practice. Actually, the owner of the clinic where I was working asked me to do so. I was in agreement. I hopped that this ordeal would soon come to an end and I would resume my work shortly.
However, it was getting more bizarre by the day. Voices told me I should have a homosexual relationship; they said everybody was a ‘faggot’ (not my word) and that I am too straight. They also told me that I was ‘too good’, ‘too proper.’ Among several of their absurd ideas they tried to get me to believe in was that I was already dead. One version of it was that I died in an accident and was now in my afterlife. They were trying to get me off-center in various other ways, with increasing intensity and vigor.
My priority in dealing with people has always been the good Hippocratic dictum – to help, or at least to do no harm. Since I did not like the way voices wanted me to relate to people and did not want to suffer the punishment for opposing them either, I withdrew even more. As I saw my professional and personal life crumble, I started giving less credence to what voices said, and respected them less. I realized, no matter whose agents they were, clearly they were not my friends. There was now an unmistakable anger and hatred in their tone.
My idea of spirit guides has always been that they are gentle and loving beings. It became crystally clear to me that the source of these voices was not of the Light. I asked, whatever these things are, to leave me alone. This infuriated voices and they showered me with horrible insults in the nastiest way imaginable.
I tried to get some answers from people who apparently initiated me into this, whatever it was. Most of them mocked me covertly, in an amazing synchronicity with the voices, and suggested that I was going crazy. A few seemed to sympathize with me, but offered no real help. More and more people around me seemed to be channeling bizarre, often ominous information supposedly about me. I felt I was very harshly judged, based on some unfairly perverted image of me.
Voices explained that everyone was lying to me, that these people are ‘bull-shitters’, and that since I didn’t like their games and also because I was unattractive, nobody wanted me, and that I should now ‘get the f@(% out.’ Whenever I went outside, there was always somebody stocking or otherwise playing with my mind. When I was in my first-floor apartment in Santa Monica, I heard people outside my window laughing, making fun of me.
In mid-May, right after my birthday, voices claimed that I’m their ‘shell’ and forbade all personal initiative. A few times they called me their ‘taxi’. As far as they were concerned, any action, even thought, was a sin, punishable by a deluge of threats and insults. When I so much as hinted that I was suffering, they said: ‘Happy Birthday!’ I guess they thought it was funny.
I was hugely perplexed and enormously disappointed, to say the least. What a turn of events. One day I seemed to have a key to the city, and then I was crudely kicked out. Before long, devastated, I moved out from LA. I spent the following couple of weeks driving around neighboring towns. It seems the tribe knew where I went and either followed me or had their friends in these towns harass me.
Sensing a deliberate persecution by an organized gang I left the country. The voices did not disappear, however. To learn more about them, I went scuba diving. They were still heard making fun of me at seventy feet under the surface of the sea. Even in a foreign country, they tried to make me believe I was stocked. Now that there were no people I could actually see, not just hear, I the lie that the whole world hates me to a rest. When I returned to New York, I was relieved to find no apparent signs of persecution from people around me either. Eventually, they gave up on this particular plot.
The entourage from hell continued their attacks in other ways though. As I’ve become more familiar with their games, they became less fantastic, but still very creative in ways of torturing me. There are many distinct voices that seem to have separate consciousness, but two are most frequent, almost always present taking turns talking to or about me. Although they seem to have unique and consistent personalities, they don’t reveal any information that can be used to trace their identity. They gladly accept most identities I give them in my contemplation of them, the more dramatic the better, but generally identify themselves collectively as ‘bull-shitters’, and sometimes, the ‘island’. Some of the other most peculiar names they’ve came up for themselves: my toys, my magic markers, my prohibiters, not-wanters, border patrol. Usually, they speak Russian, but they apparently understand English perfectly, and likely, know other languages too. Most often these creatures behave as hooligans who tease and torment just for fun of it. For example, they suggest lewd acts, draw attention to things sexual or filthy, and then scold me for considering or even noticing, condemning, in fact, almost all of my initiative, even on a thought level. They often insist that I don’t need anything at all anymore and also that I should die already. They call me all kinds of insulting names. Some of the names they call me are highly symbolic, such as ‘hole puncher’, then instigate me to try to figure out why they call me that. Sometimes they proclaim that I’ve created or requested this experience; though as of late, more frequently they take a credit for it. In fact, they claim that bull-shitters invented all that there is. Daily, they threaten me, question my credibility and sanity, invade privacy, lie, confuse, discourage, disrupt and interfere in all aspects of my life.
In order to remain hopeful and keep a positive attitude, I tried to rationalize what was happening to me in an optimistic light. Remembering the book of Job, and learning about the Temptations of Saint Anthony, I thought perhaps I was tested by God. I've also considered that this could be an accelerated karmic cleansing, a purgatory. As time went on this seemed less and less likely.
These creatures’ objectives became progressively clear and explicit: to torment me with feelings of anger, fear and guilt, drive me to self-destruction, even suicide, or at the least, make me a madman. The reason: “We like it like that”, “It’s delicious”, “We are playing with you”, “We seriously dislike you”, “We hate you”…
For a long time now, I believed in one benevolent God, and never game much thought to evil spirits or devil. I thought such are fear-based concepts, fairy-tale characters, something to scare people into devotional practice with. But even if they were real, I figured, they were not likely to trouble a good man. Clearly, I was naïve and ignorant to think this.
After a considerable research, and having spent several months observing this phenomena first hand, I now strongly believe that I have been attacked by discarnate entities with immoral agenda. There was a lot I did not understand about what was happening to me since I got into spiritual practice three years ago, but it seemed it was making me a more capable and happier person. My intention remained to do good, seek the truth, and follow God’s will as I knew it. At the time, I was not very well familiar with the Christian scriptures and was highly suspicious of any doctrines. Spirits came in with a promise of holy guidance, a direct, personal revelation. They were masters of seduction. They were all I wanted them to be… until they got a strong hold of me. When the courtship ended they proceeded to rape my mind with fear and delusion. I believe I was set up to be possessed by them by a group of people who serve evil of spirit realm, possibly Satan, or are in a symbiotic relationship with spirit entities. It’s possible, they wanted to initiate me into their community, and then, when I did not agree with their values and refused to follow their guidance, attempted to destroy me.
Sometimes voices tell me that the game is over, or that they’ve done their ‘cleaning’ job, or even that a mistake was made, but then a moment later they tell me that this will never end, and continue their assault.
I am in pain, my loved ones are suffering too, people I could have been helping as a physical therapist are not getting treated, but I am not about to kill myself, become an %¤#&!§-or give up to the darkness in any other way. Voices tell me that it’s all over for me, that “it is too late.” I don’t believe them. I believe I can prevail. As my confidence and will to resist get stronger, voices increasingly try to convince me that I am ‘scared’. I know the reverse is true. I suspect these demons are getting worried about my plans. I am determined to find resolution. I would also like to help other people who have similar problem or are in a danger of becoming a victim of Satanic oppression.
I hope my story will encourage and assist others, and that it will also invite some helpful feedback, which I welcome and would very much appreciate.
It appears Christianity has the most reasonable explanation for what has happened to me and deliverance is the key to my healing. With great interest I began reading the New Testament three days ago. I already feel strongly that this is a very special text indeed. I started praying. I am now looking for a ministry to personally assist me in this process. I would greatly appreciate any genuine advice and welcome recommendations. I currently reside in New York City, and will spend a weak in South California later this year. Churches local to these areas would be most convenient, but I want to hear about great ministries in other regions too.
I thank our Heavenly Father, and the owner of this site, for making this forum available for me to share my experience. I also thank you for your consideration and taking your time to read my story. God bless.
you are reaching out to God and the Spirit of Christ is reaching back to you, you are in the hands of Jesus, keep believing in healing, keep fostering faith and hope. Call out to the Son, the Prince of Peace, and believe that the power of love can heal and restore you.
the richest blessing of God be with you, thanks for sharing.
Schizophrenia appears to be a syndrome, a spectrum of diseases that produce similar symptoms. It is argued that a significant group of schizophrenics, however, experience such symptoms because of selenium deficiency and that the disease is a member of the selenium family tree (Brown and Foster, 1996).
Further evidence to support the viewpoint that schizophrenia may be the member of the selenium family tree was provided by Brown (1994) who used two-by-two contingency tables to compare prevalence from nine U.S. schizophrenia surveys, conducted between 1880 and 1963, with crop selenium deficiency. This approach provided a significant correlation between low selenium and high schizophrenia states (p=0.0001; Yates corrected chi square). This research also demonstrated a significant correlation between low selenium and high schizophrenia in five or more of the nine surveys (p=0.0002). Indeed there is significant correlation between both the 1880 and1963 schizophrenia survey data and low selenium states.
Additional evidence of selenium deficiency came from Buckman and co-workers (1987), who measured levels of the seleno-enzyme glutathione peroxidase in blood samples taken from chronic schizophrenics and compare them with those found in a control group of non-schizophrenic mental patients. Buckman and colleagues discovered a strong, negative correlation in schizophrenics between glutathione peroxidase activity and computer tomography scan measures of brain atrophy and increased ventricle-brain ratios. That is, the lower the seleno-enzyme level, the greater the brain abnormalities. Such relationships did not occur in the control group, which suggest a unique relationship between selenium deficiency and the tissue damage found in the brains of schizophrenics.
The argument is not that selenium deficiency is not the sole cause of schizophrenia. Indeed, schizophrenia is probably a second or third order disorder that may also involve calcium and essential fatty acid deficiencies (Foster 1992). In fact, evidence to support this possibility has been provided by Templer and co-workers (1990) who have shown that in both the United States and Italy, significative positive correlations between schizophrenia and prevalence and mortality from cancer of the oseophagus. As argued earlier, cancer of the eosophagus is probably at least a third order disease, that has been preventable by both selenium and calcium supplementation Blot et al. 1994, Yu & Foster 1991).
I am sorry you are having this difficulty.
Does not sound like you are having much fun.
Hope this helps.
bfree, I still think of you and have just put you in prayer before Christ.
These entities could be souls that are living on a lower vibration-- seeking to harrass who they can when the door is open for them to. They could be attached to you etherically, but I do not believe they have possessed you. They are just hanging around you.
I think more people are harrassed like this than is known .
It doesn't mean your spirit is not where it should be, spiritually-- it may be a trial you are going through, and which has been permitted by God so that you will be able to better help others later as a healer. I do feel you are still being protected by God.
Keep on ignoring these entities. I don't think this is mental illness of any type either. Keep on looking for a church pastor that will be the right one to help you- preferrably someone who is sincerely Holy Spirit led.
I have to share with you that at a recent Health/Spirit Expo I was at, I met two spiritualist women who clean homes of entities and help lead earthbound spirits to the Light. They are both born gifted. They may be able to help you or give you pointers on how to deal with this. You can reach them at: 570-743-3652, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Their website is http://www.eolcenter.com
The Center they work at address is: Essence of Life Center, 1372 N. Susquehanna Trail, Ste 310, Selinsgrove, Pa. 17870
Still seek a Christian pastor though, because I feel no stone should be unturned in searching for help.
As you read the Bible, you will come across St. Paul's letters in the New Testament where he kept praying to God to be deliverd from a "Thorn of the Flesh". We don't know what this thorn was, but it may very well have been something similar to what you are experiencing. Wether or not it is, it is STILL a thorn , and I have placed it before LOVE- Who is God-- and Who is also Christ, as far as I'm concerned.
Whatever your spiritual beliefs, just know that I placed it at the Throne of our Creator of all mankind.
Thus, Krishna’s emphasis on the enlightening properties of kundalini is balanced by his awareness of its destructive potential when awakened prematurely. As Krishna observes, in some cases the difference between the two outcomes is difficult to assess:
There is a close relationship between the psychotic and the mystic. In a mystic, there is a healthy flow of prana into the brain, and in the psychotic the flow is morbid. In fact, the mystic and the psychotic are two ends of the same process, and the ancient traditions class mad people as mad lovers of God, or something divine. (in Kieffer, 1988, p. 110)
Joseph Campbell expressed the same idea poetically by stating, “The schizophrenic is drowning in the same waters in which the mystic swims with delight” (in Mintz, 1983, p. 158). Sannella (1987), a psychiatrist, also notes the dual manifestations of the kundalini experience:
I have also witnessed this regrettable tendency among those who have stumbled onto the kundalini experience. But this says nothing about the experience itself, which is not inherently regressive. On the contrary, I view the kundalini awakening as an experience that fundamentally serves self-transcendence and mind-transcendence. (p. 20)
In 1974 Sannella co-founded the Kundalini Clinic in San Francisco, a facility dedicated to helping persons undergoing sudden kundalini arousal.
The transformative potential of spiritual awakening with psychotic features (which we have designated as kundalini crisis) has been noted by Christina and Stanislav Grof and labeled “spiritual emergency.” Christina’s description of her spiritual emergency and Stanislav’s clinical insight into the transformative potential of these experiences provide a valuable resource in this area. Their criteria for distinguishing between spiritual emergency and psychosis provide a helpful “yardstick” for clinical assessment.
Among favorable signs [indicating spiritual emergency] are a history of reasonable psychological, sexual, and social adjustment preceding the episode, the ability to consider the possibility that the process might originate in one’s own psyche, enough trust to cooperate, and a willingness to honor the basic rules of treatment. Conversely, a lifelong history of serious psychological difficulties and of marginal sexual and social adjustment can generally be seen as suggesting caution. Similarly, a confused and poorly organized content of the experiences, presence of Bleuler’s primary symptoms of schizophrenia, strong participation of manic elements, the systematic use of projection, and the presence of persecutory voices and delusions indicate that traditional approaches might be preferable. Strong destructive and self-destructive tendencies and violations of basic rules of treatment are further negative indicators. (p. 256)
Christina Grof founded the Spiritual Emergence Network (SEN) in 1980 to provide educational information and a referral service for people experiencing transformational crises. It is currently located at the Institute of Transpersonal Psychology (250 Oak Grove Ave., Menlo Park, CA 94025; 415/327-2776).
You are not crazy. This has been experienced by many people for thousands of years.
It's demonic in nature. I know because I have experienced the same thing
and others have as well. This usually happens to a person that gets involved
in a religious or spiritual movement that is false. Even Christians experience
this by opening themselves up without knowing it. There have been many Christians
who have given testimony to this happening after being involved in things like
being slain in the spirit, and the Toronto Blessings/Brownsville Revivals.
If you believe Jesus Christ is our savior. Call on him. Then use his name and command
the demons to leave. They must bow to the feet of Jesus. If you believe
in the Power of Christ and use his name they will leave. Get the book by
Derrick Prince called, "They shall expel Demons." It helped me a lot and has
testimonies of others going through similar things.
Sometimes you need strong faith and you need to pray and fast before casting
them out. The bible indicates that some demons require stronger faith that can
come about by prayer and fasting.
With me there was a big fight by some and little from others so expect a fight.
Don't give up. And if you feel more comfortable get a christian there in person
to cast them out.
bfree, I am SO glad you shared your story here. Praise God! I believe that the One who created heaven and earth is drawing you to Himself in an amazing way. Man, I am SO EXCITED!!! You now know that there is in fact a devil and demonic forces and that they are much more organized and have a hateful agenda than people can possibly fathom. Jesus said, in John 10:10 that the enemy has come to steal, kill, and destroy, but that He has come to give us LIFE!!! and life abundantly. To the degree that those demons hate you (which is actually more than you have even experienced) God loves you all the more. You cannot fathom the depth at which God loves you and has been with you and wants to deliver you. I came to know Jesus through my experience with demonic spirits as well. I never saw them with my naked eye, but, like you, I thought following their way was fun and not boring, like so many people's lives I saw around me. And it was at first, but like you were saying, as time went on, it became clear to me that their agenda was to destroy me. I seriously contemplated suicide a few times and just wanted to die. I realized that the only safe place for me was in Christ. I knew that He could make it all better, but I had no idea how much better it would get. Throughout my journey with God, I have had the chance of seeing many people influenced and possessed by demons and by the grace of God, to the best of my memory, I have seen God deliver all of them. The power of demons is not even a fraction of the power of God to us through the blood of Jesus. Paul prayed in Ephesians 1:19, and I pray it for you, that you would know "...what is the immeasurable greatness of His power toward us who believe, according to the working of His great might. If you call upon the name of the Lord and give your life to Jesus, He will come and make His habitation with you and the influence and control of those demons will diminish significantly. In fact once you begin to know God intimately and Jesus lives inside of you, the demons will begin to fear you. Not because of you, but because once you do this, God transfers you from the dominion of darkness into the kingdom of His beloved Son, the scripture says, and in that place the demons have no power over you, except what you give them. Now, that is not to say that you won't need deliverance, because you will, but if you would call upon the name of the Lord, you will be saved, the scripture says. So I pray, bfree, in the name of Jesus that His presence would visit you as you read this. I pray the anointing of the Holy Spirit over you that you would feel the warmth of His love and the protection of the high tower, that is our God. I rebuke every demonic spirit that afflicts you in the name of Jesus. I speak to You, heavenly Father and I ask for power from on high to hit bfree in the name of Jesus. Overwhelm his/her soul with light. True light that comes from You. The light that does not defile, but is pure and holy. Come in POWER Holy Spirit upon bfree. I ask that You yourself would visit him/her and show him/her the way to life. As You have said in Your word that the enemy has come only to steal, kill, and destroy, but that You came to give life and give it abundantly, so I pray for bfree that he/she would see the life that You died for us to have. I pray that you would lead him/her to the right people who can teach him/her to walk in the truth in the power of the Holy Spirit, not in religion. Set bfree FREE!!! I ask in the name of Jesus. You have heard his/her cry for freedom. Thank You that you are the God who answers by fire and I ask that You answer the cries of bfree. I wish I could sit down with you, bfree and pray with you, because I cannot tell you how true it is that Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life and that no one comes to the Father, but through Him. I believe that God has put the God cry in your spirit and no fire of hell can quench it. I believe that you are seeing that this is the truth. I pray protection over your body and your mind and your spirit and emotions. May God keep you safe until full deliverance is accomplished. The first step to deliverance is accepting Jesus into your life as Lord. Like, yet VERY unlike the voices that have led you, Jesus will speak to you and lead you, but He is always kind, never forceful or harsh. Giving Him the place of control in your life will allow Him to transfer you from the power of the devil and demons into His kingdom, which is built on love, justice, truth, and mercy. When you do that, ask God to baptize you in the Holy Spirit (as in the book of Acts in the Bible). This will open up to you the power dimension of God in an experiential way. This is all in the Bible. Read through the gospels at the contrast of the nature of Jesus vs. the demons He encountered and drove out of people. Read Isaiah 61, which is my favorite passage of scripture. It talks about why Jesus came (even thought it was hundreds of years before He did). Ask God to connect you with people who can walk with you through this process. Spirit-filled believers who love and follow God are the most loving people I have encountered on the earth and if you allow God to connect you with some of them, they will be able to walk you through this process. If you want books on deliverance, Google the name Derek Prince or Mahesh Chavda. Todd Bentley and David Hogan walk in deliverance ministry as well, and there are many audio files on the internet in which you can hear their stories of countless numbers of people like yourself who encounter God in power and it drives out every demon they have. I would even recommend, if you are able to go to where some of these people are, namely Todd Bentley and/or Mahesh Chavda. Todd is in Abbottsford, BC, and Mahesh is near Charlotte, N.C. If you have iTunes, you can subscribe to either of those guys' podcasts. Todd Bentley's is Supernatural Living Messages(type that into the search in the podcast page) and Mahesh's is Mahesh Chavda Ministries. And of course, I would love to continue corresponding with you about all of this. This is so exciting. God is doing something really awesome here. I pray His blessing and protection over you and when those demons come knocking again, just say the name of Jesus and they will not like it at all and you will see that God is good and He will answer you. Bless you, bfree, in Jesus' name. Bless you.
Like always attracts like (the soul learning level)humans are afraid of anything they dont understand. Obviously you had this lesson to go through to test yourself....& you won.
The soul of each of us is made up of electromagnet energy & you can build this energy to create a powerful electro-magnetic shield around you, your loved ones, your car, house anything. INTENT is the key to all success & failure & the driver of this energy.....for good or bad. At all times we & only ourself have control over our INTENT (behind all we think say & do.) All the best with your future.
Dear BFree, I was performing a search for demonic influence and came upon your story here. As a woman who had experienced some let downs over failed relationships accepted a spirit into my life when I was between 24-25 years old. I did what you did, I decided to embrace this spirt as possibly a baby son. I named him and imaged what he looked like. I was so grateful how you explained in honest detail about your private moments with your ailens. I often kept all those moments so private and merely shared it with only one or two people who never commented. I always thought the spirit was a gift from God, because I became a born again Christian at the age of 23, but I was raised by such an abusive mother who was Russian and very dominic over my Italian father. Unlike you, I was born and raised in the United States. At the end of April, I experienced such horrible attacks, believing I had undergone a judgment from God. I saw a dark shadowly type crawling creature - like a dog come at me and I screamed and I am experiencing such mind control and horrid unclean crawling like forceful movements through my body. Although I've prayed and even sought a ministry for deliverance from demonic spirits, the attack has been more hostile. I have had some relief with prayer, but out in public and in my workplace, everyone at work laughs at me, and seems to encourage these demons and all my thoughts have spilled out over the entire office. I try to perform my job duties as if I am normal, but everyone at work is now talking to me in obscurities. They are wiping their behinds; saying woof and arf and looking at me like they are dogs. They wag their heads. Some of the women are walking on the tippie toes and even try to flirt with me and say, Hi Guy....it is so shameful to me. I am now 55-years old and although I'm not married, because of our financial situation, I am sharing an apartment for the past 5 years with my boyfriend of 13-years, although we have separate bedrooms, but nevertheless, I am pretty conservative in my dress, and quite plain to most observers, except for the demonic control. I was wondering how long you were suffering with the voices. I hear voices of everyone I know talking to me. I belive in Jesus and know that he went to the cross to serve as sin for me in my place and I love all the Chrisitian broadcasting and radio programs. It is comforting in part, but facing public humility because of the demonic spirits is so painful. It is so hard to believe that everyone I encounter seems to look at me in disgust, train conductors, passerbys - I look in the mirror and see me and I don't see any demons, but they are obvious to everyone else. My boyfriend seems to treat me the same, which is odd. My family has stopped calling. My sister actually told me she didn't want to end up like me. I hear my brothers' voices laughing and laughing. Oh, it is anguish indeed. I don't want to kill myself, but these forces are making it harder and harder for me to be successful at my job or even walk peaceably anywhere. One day when I was arriving home from the train station and went to park my bike in the garage, my neighbor's 20-yr. old daughter had two male friends over for a nightly meal outdoors, which she has never done. I said hello and then the daughter told her one male friend, "Well, you wanted to see her." I pretended I didn't hear her say that, as I locked the garage door to pass them, saying have a pleasant evening, smiling, but feeling so hurt. I don't know how long I am to be afflicted with this unusual force of evil, but it is now four months.
My dear friend, convenant greetings in the name of the lord.
I read your story with great dismay and sympathy, i can imagine how the Devil has tried to ruin your life all this years, but listen carefully; the bible tells us that 'my people are destroyed for lack of knowledge'
The enemy is not the people jesting or laughing at you, the enemy is the Devil, the moment you realise this your problem is half solved. The bible refers to him as the old serpent, the trick star, he tricks you into believing all sorts of things about your self but they are all lies from the pit of hell. Jer 29:11 says; I know the thought i think towards you thoughts of peace and not of evil to give you an expected end... you can read this scripture to verse 14. Christ has redeemed you with his blood. The enemy has no hold over you. 2cor 2:11, Lest satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices. If u are not yet born again i want you to say this aloud: Father i come to you with a heavy heart, i confess all my sins to you, cleanse me and make me whole today with your blood, thank you lord becos you have heard me, for in Jesus name i have prayed Amen. You are now a new creature, the enemy no longer has hold over you my dear, Rom 12;2 says and be not conformed to this world; but be your transformed by the renewing of your mind.. You have to renew your mind don't let the past hold you down. Demons no longer have a hold on you, you belong to Jesus. The bible says whatever you bound on earth is bound in heaven. Whenever you hear voices again say, 'I rebuke you in the name of Jesus'! John8:36; If the son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed. Anytime you hear anything contrary to the word of God bound and rebuke in the name of Jesus and they will flee. Remember the bible says if ye have faith as small as a mustard seed you can say to the mountain be ye cast into the sea it shall be done unto thee (Mat 17:20). Be of good cheer, christ has overcome, you shall overcome. Your redemption has come. Looking forward to your testimony. Remain blessed..

Like you, I feel like people are inside my mind all of the time, and make fun of me. lol alot of things that I do think in my mind are childish or dorky, ha i KNOW this, and i hear laughing afterwards. This past year at school was terrible. I suspected a group of kids there who somehow knew things that i said the day before when i was home alone. this one girl always makes fun of me.. always have. It just seemed that they were in me when I started liking this one boy that seemed a part of there stoner pact or whatever. Once, i was in the shower and it felt like they were watching me and something took control of my hand and waved at them in a way that i don't wave. I;ve become so scared and i don't know what to do.. When i try to pray they make fun of me, and htey hate that i'm smart and do good in school. i want them to leave my mind alone. how can they be doing this? ive gotten depressed and i almost attempted suicide plenty of times. i feel like crying.. I am convinced that I haven't made this up.. Because once i said the boy's name aloud in liek a cry, just for the fun of it, and the next day that girl said it the same way when i was at my locker and her and the group of peopel looked over at me and laughed. I want to be left alone..... I'm scared! I think they want to kill me. Also, it seems that the facial expressions on dolls in my house and pictures of wolves in my room actually change like the boy, and his friend. Why are they doing this? Am I just going crazy? Please help me...

I really admire your courage and determination. You are in the right track. Keep on reading the Bible and do visit the site. There are a lot of things happening there. I believe you have a very significant mission. The site I gave you above can help you 100%.
I'm one of the beneficiaries of their program and I know many who were delivered not only from demonic oppression but also from incurable diseases in Jesus' Name through this team. They're the most effective deliverance ministers you could know in today's times.
my email is email@example.com in case you want to communicate.
Most of all PRAY and ASK God to LEAD you to the right DELIVERANCE MINISTER.
Luke 10:19 says that JESUS has given us power over ALL of Satan's power. The fight is hard. I know from personal experience. I will be seeing a LICENSED counselor soon who I think has training in deliverance. I'll try to remember to come back here and tell what happened. But if I don't make it back to this site, remember that God has not forgotten you.
Psalms 18:17 says He DELIVERED me from my strong enemy, and frm them which hated me, for they were too strong for me. That has been a HUGE help for me. God has been making this scripture REAL.
Remember this Deut. 33:27 The Eternal God is Ty Refuge, and underneath are the Everlasting arms. He shall thrust out the enemy from before you, and shall say, "Destroy them."
I've been reading the ENTIRE book of EPHESIANS OUT LOUD almost DAILY for over a year. It takes about 18 minutes.
Keep fighting. Ask people to PRAY for you. DON'T be embarrassed or ashamed. Satan wants you to KEEP QUIET. Tell EVERYONE God leads you to tell!!!
NO MATTER HOW STRANGE YOU THINK YOUR EXPERIENCE IS, YOU ARE NOT THE ONLY ONE WHO HAS HAD THIS EXPERIENCE!!! SATAN ONLY WANTS YOU TO T H I N K THAT !!! You are N O T ALONE!!!!
BLESS YOUR HEART!!!
About 5 or 6 years ago, I left a cult known for their "christian" evangelical door to door work worldwide. I was married to one of their top leaders who was trained for missionary work. After years of his financial economic verbal and other extreme abuses, I left in an ambulance. At the hospital is where I found out I was being slowly poisoned by him through my food. He had taken out a life insurance policy on me for greed so that when I died, it would be made to appear to be an "accident", and then he could collect money from it.
The hospital did not allow me to return to my house, I had purchased, all of the furnishings, all of the furniture, and even the marital bed brand new was of my own money. I had worked in the government at that time, and getting so sick due to his 'religion' and their support of what he was doing because of his 'position', I lost all respect for all religion, but something inside told me to keep trying anyway.
I grew up in an american state that is the only of its kind. Due to media and stereotypes, I was persecuted because of what people in the northern states of america felt "ALL of our 'kind' did" in that Southern state.
When I left my husband, I had just cause.
I left and was never allowed to return to even so much as get all of my belongings, and no one ever helped me. As he was well loved in the community and so religiously book smart and persuasive, I was the one ostracized and persecuted for leaving what they, ironically not living behind the same door and household as me, still felt he is "such a 'good' man".
I was shunned as he continued to make himself out to be some kind of victim.
It took 2 years for the divorce to get finalized. During that time, the only place I could afford with having to literally start all over, was something in america they refer to as 'the projects'. Basically, these are government funded apartments for low income people on welfare that are notorious for housing drug dealers, prostitutes, and basically, modern date sodom and gomorrah.
Coming from a religion that sheltered all of its adherents from HOW to live and survive the world, I didn't know anything about what kind of programs there were for people who had no money or very little money, or basically any other skill needed for survival.
I felt that since I was being literally persecuted, threatened with violence, and more from even police officers who were prejudiced and racist, I had better at least try to open mindedly find out if these 'Saints' in the religion I was being falsely accused of being part of because of where I grew up, would help me. Voodoo.
I was put in contact with a woman who claimed to be from New Orleans, but now living in New Mexico, who is a highest rank priestess of that religion as well as an official catholic reverend.
I was christened catholic as a baby before my parents decided to taint our childhood with extreme abuses and religious oppression from the 'christian' cult indoctrination.
She had baptized some voodoo leader spirit onto my head, over the phone in a conversation.
Since then, my life has been even worse. I came to know, see, and even hear a LOT of the 'friends' of that leader, known as Legba.
They knew I was all alone, abandoned by all family (since they were jehova witness and I left due to my husband's cruelties they all supported), and that I needed real family and support more than anything else.
The man spirit even introduced to me in a series of dreams, 'saints' I was supposed to marry after my 'trial' period was over or whatever. They are called Orisha in Africa.
Dealing with those monsters was and still is a day to day nightmare. Obviously, they never had any intention to honor their many promises to me.
Trapped and stuck, I stopped all association with that woman and her white initiate amateur daughters also alleged to be 'mambos', one 'belonging' to one of their spirits named Ogou and another for someone named Agwe and his wife LaSirene.
I was demanded upon on a daily basis. I thought it was part of some training I HAD to undergo. In the meantime, every time I tried to leave and draw away from that 'religion' and those monsters, parts of my life were destroyed, I was setup, harassed and persecuted by authorities (satan IS the owner of the world after all), blamed for the torture claiming that I was 'disobedient' and lowly and they had to therefore "punish the child" in reference to me.
I was taught to 'fight fire WITH fire' so I contacted another woman who claims to own the Blacks of my Haitian part of my lineage and later another man who was more demonic than each the prior, something they call mambo and houngan, to see if it was just me in my innocence that kept making them "punish" me, or if it was something else I did 'wrong'. The New Jersey 'houngan asogwe' had his jinns maneuver things so that I was called to be trained for re-entry into Federal government work. Later, I was told that if I did not comply, he would have my Mother seriously injured and that he and his 'team' had 'astrally traveled' there on frequent enough occasions to know just how to get it done. The love for my Mother (my adopted Mother I lived with at the time) meant compliance...again. I had no other choice, as I already knew full well what those monsters were capable of.
I was kept being told I did "nothing wrong, but" and then left to hang so that I had to keep playing their guessing games.
They all took advantage of me, even having some white snake they call 'Dumballah' rape me in my sleep and every few months of torture until I accede to marrying their monsters, keep having to "teach me a lesson" after lesson of constant let downs, abuses, false promises if I "just did something" for them to work hard to give THEM material things I needed for my own self, mysterious HIGHLY ILLEGAL 'lessons' (such as getting me illegally evicted for no valid reason and no one to turn to for assistance and more), so as to break me in like some wild horse that needed to be tamed into submission and robotic obedience.
Every time I 'dared to question' I was made to feel like what right do I as JUST a human who "needs them" as the alleged 'Ambassadors for ALL of humanity' all the internet websites say of them to lure in innocent victims to prey upon. Why? Because I just wanted to live my own life. Asking for help from what I was lied to as being 'Saints' here to help ALL of humanity, does not give anyone entitlement to harass, threaten, torture, evil commit repeated attempted murder upon. In my culture, it is widely believed that there actually ARE spirits that live in and control everything in the universe, despite being raised 'christian' as a child. Ironically, before the 'voodoo' cruelties, as soon as I left the christian cult, I was in a position to set out in search of my Shaman of my own people (Native American) and later found out about my Haitian heritage. So, because of the 'defiance' believed by those arrogant and narcissistic 'voodoo' wanna-be gods, it was maneuvered that I had no other choice BUT to return to the same city I grew up in, where ironically there is NO public transportation, all of my pay is suddenly cut off with no way to make money except via illegal or immoral means in this town, more physical pains than humanly imaginable, not to mention having to deal with the constant and incessant aggravations of that 'man' here I had to learn how to refer to as my 'father' growing up in his household.
The demons are and have been using him and all of his varied filth to control me and 'keep me in line' for over two years now. He was extremely abusive and manipulative when my siblings grew up in his household. He has been telling my JW sister some things about something called 'illuminati' helping him with his 'situation' here, yet turned right around after that conversation LOUDLY praying to a christian God...basically looking for excuses to keep getting support for his violence he refers to as "imperfection that God HAS no choice to 'forgive' him for". He has recently bragged about how he and my mother were heavily into the 'Black Market' and so when he got jealous of the fact that he had a son by her, he had it killed and the military allowed him leave to go bury his only natural male son on top of one of his relative's graves in New Orleans. He brags how he feels he was a victim of life and never took responsibility for anything in life, even now. Yet, as he asked ME to live with him, and the economy here is so terrible since a hurricane that devastated the area, I really have no choices economically. So I just stay out of his way for the most part and just make sure I am clean and my room where I store my belongings in his apartment is very clean, so that no 'demon' has a place to hide within my own belongings. I have to go out and stay out most of the day just so I could find a quiet spot amongst nature in order to meditate and pray.
I was raped by his neighbor, and not too long ago miscarried a baby. No money coming in means I have no way to get to or have insurance to get myself checked out.
Things are not getting any better. A woman can only handle only so much. It don't get any better when the only things people can tell you sounds no more than what Job's false comforters were telling HIM when the devil and his demons persecuted him.
I was always the 'underdog' so to speak. So, I was always discredited and maligned because of being a pretty girl who had one heck of a fight. I had a lot to fight for, so I thought.
Now, I suppose it was all just some pawn game of chess by controlling and manipulative god figures all along.
Literally, I am being drained, am trapped, and with no way out except to just accede to the demons, something my own spirit within just refuses to do and the resulting reason they just keep trying harder to 'break' me. I'm tired of them trying to control me and every part of my life, and I wish I would have never met any of them, the wanna be 'gods' who are evidently no more than petty, jealous fallen ex-angels from the flood of Noah's day, "seeking to devour" and destroy any vestiges remaining of anything good.
This story is highly familiar to people who have experimented with the occult. There is freedom from the dark side. See videos by people like Derek Prince and Frank Hammonds on how to cast out demons. Pray and pray for help in doing this.
