“In this generation, like so many others, people have been led to believe that the devil is a myth, a figure, an idea, the idea of evil. But the devil exists and we must fight against him.” — Pope Francis
A recent discussion I have had about so-called demonic possession is what leads me to write this next lesson, misinformation, and misrepresentation like the statement above is what brings about ignorance and indoctrination.
Exorcism--the ritualistic expulsion of evil spirits inhabiting a body, brain, or place--has been practiced in some form throughout history and is probably the first primitive type of psychotherapy. Hippocrates, the father of western medicine, was originally a trained exorcist. Jesus of Nazareth is reputed to have healed individuals suffering from mental and physical symptoms by casting out demons. Now, more than two millennia later, the Roman Catholic Church is reported to be secretly educating a new crop of exorcists to meet a rapidly rising demand for exorcisms in Italy, Australia, America, and elsewhere around the globe.
So do demons really exist? What is evil? Where does it come from? What is our relationship to it? Is it a proper subject of study for psychology and psychiatry? And how can we better deal with it?
I have studied the Dark Arts and its energies my whole life and believe that I understand the difference. True demonic energy is high vibration darkness; the beings responsible for possessions are low toxic vibration darkness.
This is a distinction that must be realized to understand darkness. There is high vibration darkness, high vibration corrosive darkness, low vibration darkness, and low vibration toxic darkness, just as there is high vibration light and low vibration light.
There is a balance as well. Moving too far in one direction can cause damage. Different people will find themselves at different vibration points. They will be drawn to different energies and everyone has their own unique balance. They have their truth which is personal to them. Demons are entities of High Vibration Divine Darkness.
The beings that possess and cause harm are beings of specific low vibration darkness. They are a different class of being altogether. The spectrum of darkness is vast and many people have not researched it thoroughly. They class all entities as demons, which is unfortunate because as you expand the scope of darkness and begin to understand the layers, you see just how complex and amazing it is.
Exorcists will tell you that it is demons that are responsible for doing the possessing. Of course, that makes absolutely no sense. What do they even get out of it? Nothing, so if they get nothing why would they possess anyone? There has to be a motive.
There is one being that is notorious though for possessions, the sludge entity. Unlike demons, they actually do have a motive. You see sludge feed on our energies and they thrive in carnage, despair, and trauma, they are feeder entities. Most Demons are actually not a feeder entity.
