I cannot remember life without GHOSTS/SPIRITS... My interest began in the paranormal when I was 2...that's when my mom told me I first started talking about GHOSTS/SPIRITS. I grew up like most of you, learning that one shouldn't talk about the things they can see, hear and feel. Now, after years of ignoring these abilities and senses, I can no longer deny it. The TIME has come...

Put on the whole armor of God.
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood,
but against principalities,against powers,
against the rulers of the darkness of this world,
against spiritual wickedness in high places.

Wherefore take unto you the whole armor of God,
that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day,
and having done all, to stand."

Ephesians VI:11-13

DEMONS & THE GHOSTBUSTER...Just in the movies???

The nature of demons and the devil himself (itself) have been a thorny topic for centuries....
Many people have very strong opinions on the matter to this day!!! Some believe that evil, demons and the devil have only as much power as the thought put into them. I personally, believed this for many years. It's a popular "new age" ideal as well.

On the other hand, there are just as many folks that are convinced that evil does indeed exist, as does the devil. In fact, some will tell you that the devil is everywhere and that the biggest secret the devil ever got away with was making peolple think he doesn't exist.

It may surprise some of you to know that HOMER described GODS & DEMONS often interchangeably. PLUTARCH speaks of "human souls as commencing, first heroes, then demons, and afterward as advancing to a more sublime degree." PHILO of BYBLUS seems to draw from this same tradition when he states that, "The most ancient of the barbarians, especially the Phoenicians and Egyptians, from whom other people derived this custom, accounted those the greatest gods who had found out things most necessary and useful in life -- and had been benefactors to mankind."

Some historians through the ages have believed there have been spikes of marked intensity of DEMONIC influence upon the earth. They saw these as cycles and explained many of societies problems & suffering on the influx of DEMONS. These time periods include: the destruction of Jerusalem; the fall of Rome; and the French Revolution. One would imagine they would have included many occurences of the 20th & 21st centuries, such as World War II, HITLER & the NAZI'S, to name just a few.

Long before Judeo-Christian ideas of Demons existed, there were other societies and peoples with their very own notions & thoughts about demons. DEMONS are still widely believed in today by Christians and non-Christian alike. It seems as though, ever since mankind changed or shifted, if you will, their awareness into the idea that the experience of negativity could indeed be EVIL personified, there has been great effort to control these universal DARK forces. Call it EXORCISM, etc...It's our human attempt to liberate ourselves from EVIL. DARKNESS, & DEMONS.

So what then, are the esoteric defintions for evil and demons? Well of course that depends on your source but for our purposes I will use the:

The Donning International
Encyclopedic Psychic Dictionary
June G. Bletzer ~ 1986

1. A neutral energy in the form of an activity or object that the beholder interprests to be bad or sinful
2. Puposeful inaccuracies of life activity, man-made decisions about another individual's evolutionary growth experience; one unfolding in his or her own path according to their own speed, but in accord to another persona's lifestyle or opinion
3. God fufillment in a dormant state
4. A name used to designate a step in evolution for growth that one does not approve of, nor feel compatable with at that time
5. Imperfect intelligence; ignorant actions
6. Manifestations of mixed consciousness; evil is not, it is in the mind
7. Graduations of good; scale of evil depends upon contemporary mass belief system
*Afterall, Vlad the Impaler was a HERO in his time .
8. Duality of balance, method of checking balances of polarity; bad opinionated experiences are necessary to understand and appreciate good opionated experiences
9. Evil is not real, as it is destructable and can be converted into good energies (good is indestructable)
10. Opposite aspects of the one energy, necessary to produce power and manifestations [cf. LAW OF POLARITY Appendix 7, GOOD, NEGATIVE THOUGHT]

A state of repulsion and attraction and balancing of NEGATIVE (female) and POSITIVE (male) energies of primordial essence, necessary to make thousands of VIBRATIONAL FREQUENCIES in the entire COSMOS under the direction of mind activity. The way a CONSTRUCT reacts to a magnetic or electrical field manifesting 2 opposite tendencies, positive and negative. Everything can be split into 2 complete opposing principles and each contrasting principle will contain the potential of the opposing principle; e.g., in life is the seed of death. [cf. LAW OF OPPOSITES]

An intelligence in the etheric world, low or (new) on the evolutionary scale, therefore its lifestyle appears to be evil or ignorant; capable of communicating with mankind, or being manipulated by them OR manipulating them, which ends in harm to people or their worldly situations; a soul-mind who pursued inferior activites in physical life, now abides in the lower plane and haunts man.

The ancient Greek misconception that an ugly person has an ugly soul is almost as tricky & foul, as the Devil himself. Unfortunatley, over time this has led many of the literary greats and artists to portray DEMONS as particlarly vulgar and gross. Many of the ideas for these descriptions & renderings came from the monsters of ancient mythos from around the world. Borrowed from the classical monsters, there likenesses included: bats, birds, bulls, centaurs, dogs dragons, goats, lions, satyrs, and serpents.

as Described by Alphonse de Spina (1467)

Fates, who alter destiny
Poltergeists, who cause mischief
Incubi and Succubi, who stimulate lust and perversion
Marching Hordes, who bring about war
Familiars, who assist witches
Nightmares, who disturb sleep through bad dreams
Demons formed from Human Semen
Disguised Demons
Demons who Assail the Saintly
Demons who Instigate Witchcraft
