I guess my background offers something a smidge different and I'm glad to see a communal collection of this sort. My paranormal experiences started
when I died twice as a child. My father decided to cure me of a seafood allergy by immersion in the allergen. Ever since then it released my
spiritual energy and gave me some unique abilities. I started seeing "ghosts". I started seeing darker entities. I spent most of my childhood and
teenage years honing my abilities, studying theology and the occult. Possession particularly interested me, thanks William Peter Blatty. But then I
learned about psychological disorders that mimic possession. Which made me want to become a psychologist.
I was a Catholic but found my faith waning do to inconsistencies in the Bible. So I began to delve deeper into studies of the occult. I had an
experience with a ritual demon summoning(as a witness) at age 18. I came to the conclusion that if creatures like that exists then God must exist.
To follow up on possession I took a trip to the exorcism capitol of the world at the time, the Kenyan Catholic missions. I served as consult on
several church sanctioned exorcisms. What I saw shook me to my core. I began to study different religions and their rites of exorcisms. I've
witnessed exorcisms from almost a dozen different religous practices.
I decided I wanted to head up my own investigative team since I thought I had a unique perspective and an appreciation for the scientiffic method that
no other paranormal group seemed to have. Long story short, after many years here are some truths that I learned.
There are several types of human hauntings. Residual, intelligent(benign), intelligent(benevolent), intelligent(malevolent) and intelligent evolved.
The 1st 3 are self explanatory. The last was different. Human spirits that didn't have access to a particular version of the heaven, that through
ancestoral spirit worship, assuming the identity of a local demigod etc.... Gain power through fear, worship etc.... Human spirits that became more
than basic human spirits. Powerful. Sometimes good, sometimes bad. Sometimes beholden to a particular religion or belief structure, sometimes not.
Some of these spirits predate modern religion. And can't be contained using the methods of modern religions.
Demons exist. Most religions have their own demons. An Islaamic exorcism won't work on a Christian demon and so on and so forth. Christians get a
sense of entitlement because by callin on Jesus to cast out demons through a priest works on the majority of your possession and obsession cases.
Why? Well, not because Christianity is the be all end all, but because Jesus was recognized in many religions, at the very least as a prophet and/or
exorcist. The greatest exorcist of all time. So allowing Jesus to cast out demons of Jewish, Christian, Islaam and hindu religions through a priest
is effective. After years of studying demonology the scariest I've seen are the old ones. That predate humanity and possibly the earth alltogether.
They are almost impossible to bind, contain or destroy and can not be subdued by any known religion. You are their food. Or rather your essence.
Possession is real. Out of 1000 cases maybe 99% + are mental illness. Mental illness doesn't eliminate possession, they can go hand in hand. But
most cases are diagnosable by a competent mental health profesional. Problem is these deliverance ministries making a mockery out of something
entirely real. And if you are ever unfortunate enough to witness someone truely possessed, that reallly meets the Church's criteria to perform the
Roman rite, you'd hide under your covers and be in mass every morning.
I mentioned something to Woody in another thread. Pope Honorius created a grimoire of his own. He blended Catholicism with various occult practices
because he recognized that one religion could not fight all of the evil in this world alone. He recognized things that were considered heretical.
But what he did was create the foundation for effective spiritual warfare.
Why most people don't see ghosts? Low spiritual energy. If you have little to no spiritual energy you'll never see a spirit. In fact you'll be
lucky if you ever sense them. Advantage? You don't see them and most of the time they ignore you. For a spirit or a demon to maintain it's
existence on this side of the veil it has to feed on something if it stays for an extended period or if it wishes to manifest in a physical manner.
And they look for people with high spiritual energy. And in spiritual combat the higher spiritual pressure wins. And when dealing with a demon if
you don't get assistance you'll lose.
Why don't we see spirits, ghosts, demons meandering about all the time? Different planes. There is a veil that separates the physical world and
the spiritual world. How do they cross over into our realm? A couple of ways. There are locations where the veil is thin and spirits can pass
through like a revolving door. Or, a spirit or demon of significantly strong spiritual energy can punch a hole through the veil at any location.
Auras, are they real? What about the people who see them? Yes and yes. If your spiritual enrgy is high enough you emit an aura that others with
above average spiritual enregy can see. Sometimes it's huge, if you can't control it. Sometimes it's tight and well defined, for those with
control. And many people who "claim" to see auras are actually suffering from synesthesia. They can also see music. Taste colors, etc... Weird
Psychics. There are true psychics, but define what psychic is. You can have high spiritual enrgy and not be psychic. Most psychics are bogus. Some
can actually see spirits and communicate with them. Most that are not fake are empathic. I'll use several well known examples. John Edward. Con
artist. Michelle Bellanger. She's on paranormal state sometimes. She's mildly competent. I've met her a few times. She misses much more than
she hits. And Chip Coffey. Now, my group has worked with Chip on numerous occasions and I'll vouch for Chip. He's a fame whore but he's legit.
When we've worked with him he's amazed me. He has an above average amount of spiritual energy. On a scale of zero to 10 the average human is a
0.1. You need to be about a 3 to even percieve the paranormal in any capacity. To see spiritual entities that aren't obscenely strong you need to
be about a 7.5. Chip is probably a 7. But he's honed his spiritual energy to a razor edge. And as an empath and a tactile psychic he's 80% or
better. True psychics aren't mind readers. They are empaths.
EVP's. Never seen one I believed was legit. Think about the barrage of tv, radio, cell, shortwave, cb, radiation bouncing around our atmosphere.
It's not a stretch that a human won't hear something but it will show up on tape. I can sit outside your home in a tractor trailer with a CB radio
and speak to you through any speaker in your house, plugged in or not. Disembodied voices that are caught have credibility if captured in a
controlled environment in a scientiffic manner.
Orbs. BS. Maybe 1 out of 100,000 orb photos is actually spiritual energy. You show me your orb and within a couple days I can easily identify and
duplicate it with something natural. Pollen is a common culprit in photos. Bugs on video.
Can I increase my spiritual energy? Psychic ability? Not really. Dying and returning can release your latent spirtual energy. But you have what
you have unless you sort out how to steal it from someone/something else. As far as psychic abilities, you can hone your skills, but if you aren't
empathic then you aren't empathic.
What about the people who astral project and communicate with aliens? LOL. I'm very empathic and I can pick up on strong thoughts rooted in
emotion. I can even communicate a simple thought to someone else. But that last but is hard when they are in the same room. Try doing it 1000 light
years away while traveling at an effective speed of 50,000 mph. It would be like trying to shoot an atom in china while your in a cave in mexico
using a blowgun while blindfolded with fire ants biting your feet. It's total BS.
Lastly I will say this. There are more than 1,000,000 different combinations to win a game of chess. All religions have their merits in spiritual
warfare. Wicca, VooDoo, Catholocism, Druids, Hindus, Islaam, Judiasm, etc.... But when engaging an entity it''s the highest spiritual energy that
wins most of the time. That'swhy the Catholic Church still uses charismatics. Yup, they still allow a few individuals of high spiritual energy to
be exorcists. Sometimes a charismatic uses the Roman Rite but it isn't required. Most of the time a charismatic doesn't even have to call on Jesus
to exorcise the demon. His/her spiritual pressure is simply so high that he can force a demon or spirit out through sheer power. Now if you have a
charismatic that is versed in the rites of multiple religions you have a weapon. If he/she has studied various religions and understands them, then
they are more impressive. If they study demonology, all the better. Respect all. Harm none. Forgive those who wrong you and yourself for those
you've wronged. Respect all. And to quote Sun Tzu, do not fight a battle that you can't win. Get someone who can. Know your limitations.
