I've had the experience of being attacked by a demon at night, and calling on the name of God VERY forcefully inside, because I was paralyzed and
couldn't move, worked. You must crystallize all your strength in these moments and become very strong, very sure that you cannot be violated.
There's an interesting link here at C2C with Art Bell in which Fr. Martin Malichi discusses his work in exorcising demons. If you're Catholic, I
would definitely talk to your bishop about getting a priest who can come to your house and do some work. You have to find a bishop who is open to
using an exorcist. There is a protocol they go through to remove the demon from the house.
As much as possible, try to remember that God is in charge, not this demon, and not yourself. It is God and Jesus Christ who will do the work for you.
Turn it over to God every day. Say to Him, "Thy will be done," and then just have the faith that Jesus promises can move mountains. Call on your
guardian angels all the time; they are always with you and will help if you ask.
Even when your senses tell you the demon is present, even in the face of apparent failure, KNOW that God and Jesus Christ are delivering you. This is
so important. You have to let go of trying to do the work and let GOD do the work, let JESUS do the heavy lifting. He promises us that his yoke is not
heavy, the burden is light, if we but trust Him.
I know this probably will be hard to do, especially when you feel overwhelmed. But once you reach out to God for help, and truly let go of trying to
control this yourself, God will indeed help you. The more you sense God everywhere, as being truly omnipresent, the more calm you will feel and
protected. You must KNOW it. Say to yourself, "It is done!" whenever you begin to feel fearful. Say it again and again until you feel that sense of
calm that turning over this trouble to God will bring.
You can still forcefully deny the presence any time you need to, but when you do, KNOW and FEEL in your heart and mind that Jesus is destroying this
demon. The demon will know you know this. Your faith in the omnipotence of God will allow God to crush the demon.
It may still be helpful to get professional help from a priest, but until you can, I believe that kindling your faith with be very powerful, moreso
than salt, orange peels, chemical testing, etc., You are dealing with a spirit here, and you must fight principalities with the knowledge that Jesus
Christ is everywhere and is protecting you.
