First, someone said Christians don't experience, and can't see demons, or something. This isn't true in the least. Usually when you're growing
in any way, you experience inner battles, and even outer manifestations or anomalies that attempt to suppress your growth. Everyone I know, with a
strong classic faith, has experienced battles with the enemy. In fact, its more common for the battles to be underground and the negative influence
to go unrecognized amongst athiests. Not knowing is the norm for many, and they often don't question their impulses, but go with the flow. So,
returning to Church, or seeking spiritual help from someone qualified to expell negative influences is not necessarily going to work. It did work for
my sister in law. When she returned to faith, the bizarre experience that had hospitalized her and would have labeled her mentally ill disappeared
forever. Others struggle on. St. Paul was said to have battled demons that God did not merely take away from him.
First, one thing when you sense strange things are occurring, it does something to your moments where faith is weak. Being attacked by a demon
definately proves God to many, and turns them towards the light. I would seek help from someone qualified if it doesn't resolve itself, but self
work may be as simple as meditating and seeking the universal mind of Creation and seeking asking for help. Journal writing, creative expression.
Just finding very good reading material to uplift you and bring love, connectedness to all living things, and joy. Seek the funny. Laugh with your
family. Seek nature. Find or write your own prayer, or rewrite ones that don't seem quite right and pray the. Affirm the positive. Each morning
and night, ask God to surround each member of your family with a beautiful, transforming healing and protective shield of light and ask for blessings.
There is a warning, because often when one turns towards the positive more strongly, the negative really tried to get through. If so, ask God/Great
Spirit/Creator to bless and heal your enemies and attackers, and to get through to them. Just keeping in the positive and fighting the battle to win
will ensure a feeling of peace. Also, there is a good book, its old now I think, but information on this may be available online, about Conscious
Parenting. This is where we learn to write down all the times we notice instant knee-jerk responses to our children or loved ones, that are really
childhood scripts, and I guess could also be influenced by negative forces. We slowly gain conscious awareness and begin to speak and act from our
higher selves. This is something I still need to work on, lol. It is probably a lifelong process.
Edit to add: some find help with burning cedar, and sweetgrass, and spreading salt. My native friend did this alot and would come over to my house
to do it as well, when she got it into her head it was time. Another strange thing that happened to my 17 year old and me was something I wasn't
expecting. We were watching a video on youtube about energy work, and I have always felt the energetic fields around people, can see whitish auras,
but not colored ones, but in anycase, I did an impromptu session on my son just watching the video, could feel discomfort and prickly energy in my
hands and the field. When an area felt good, and my heads felt good as well, I moved onto another area. (Now in preface to it,I'm doing this,
internally thanking God for all the tools given us to and asking for blessings for my family.) When I did his head, finally it was done. He was
surprised and said he felt something heavy and oppressive leave, it was like it was forced out of him. [edit on 22-8-2008 by mystiq]
