Hi everyone, I have long had an interest in the paranormal, and earlier while watching an episode of the haunted, it showed video footage of one of the investigators getting possessed, and I haven't been able to stop thinking, what happens when someone gets possessed, I mean, like on a non physical level, what is going on ? Is an entity attacking the persons energy field/aura? And what we see in the physical is the result of that ? Does anyone here know exactly what is taking place ? And what makes it possible for some people to resist these attacks and exercise such entities ? I'm a very visual person and I guess I keep trying to imagine what such an event would look like or be like on a non physical level.
I look forward to hearing your thoughts on this.

Back in the day when people didn't even know about mental health they thought anyone who was mentally ill was possessed, this has unfortunately carried over in folk law.
I have seen mentally ill people act like they are possessed (scary stuff worse than any film) and it isn't because they are possessed by demons etc it is because they are poorly.
If anyone can show me of a possession and an exorcist with video of what happened to the person after the exorcism please do.
The problem is in some parts of the world people who need treatment for being mentally ill get treated like they are possessed by demons this only makes the person more mentally ill and that is wrong and archaic.

Look I have worked in a mental home and we didn't just pump them with drugs, we used modern techniques to help the patient understand what was happening to them and helping them with therapy.
Drugs were used but when you have a guy who hears voices from his dead father telling him he is worthless (his dad abused him as a child) a couple of pills to help the voices go away is a life saver for him.
One in three of us will suffer from being mentally unwell in our lifes...If you want to blame it on Demons etc you will only get worse and suffer more.
The stigma against mental health damages the work people put in and the treatment of people who are just poorly.

My escort informed me that he wanted me to see a demon in the process of actually possessing a human being. At this point in the trip, I was escorted back through the dimension wall separating the Second Heaven from the physical world. When we came back into this world, we were in the same hospital with my body but in a different room. The room appeared to be an employee’s lounge. I saw tables, chairs, dishes with food, and in the room were a young man and a young lady facing each other while laughing and talking.
It was obvious that they could not see the angels, yet I was so close to them I could almost reach out and touch them. I could hear and understand every word they said. They thought they were alone and as they laughed and talked, they were unaware of the horrible creature standing between them. This demon was so horrible in the appearance of his shape and form that I recognized him immediately to be from the lower group, the perverted group. The angels, the demons, and I were in the spirit in that room and were aware of everything that was happening. Those in the flesh were only aware of themselves for they could not see or hear us even though we were back in this physical world. Since we were in the spirit, we still communicated with our minds.
I was not really paying close attention to the words the two were speaking. My entire attention was focused upon the demon. He was a most horrible looking thing, reminding me of an over–grown, stuffed, slimy, green frog all out of shape and proportion. He moved slowly up into the face of the man then, suddenly, like a puff of smoke, he seemed to disappear into the face, just as if he went through the pores of his skin. When the demon had entered the man, the angels said, “Now it’s done.” The angel then proceeded to tell me how it was that this man was possessed. He stated, “The demon made himself desirable and attractive to the human.”
