Learn about demons and their true origins.
Throughout time, people have believed in demons in some form,
viewing demons as something to be feared; and all of us "battle
our own demons" in some way. But we view demons and the
demonic a bit differently than most. This is especially true as it
relates to ghost hunting and investigation. Explore our demon
information and learn about the origin of demons. You might be
pleasantly surprised on our view but only if you are able to keep
an open mind and not willing to succumb to fearful interpretation.
The word "demon" is originally a Greek term which meant a wise, guardian spirit. Today, in religion and
parapsychology, "demons" have evolved into representing entities which appear to have malicious intent and
are possibly of a non-human origin; differentiated from a spirit which proceeded from a once-living person (a
ghost). If you share that view of demons, then you also believe that demons are poweful and something humans
should not mess with at all. We believe this understanding of what some might call "Satan's minions" to be
incorrect, a newer, cultural belief having become popular through religious teaching over the past 2000 years.
Many believe that demons are of non-human origin; but, there is
also the idea that the human psyche is capable of generating a
large amount of negativity, degenerating a person's soul to a
poor, negative state that is "demon-like." At Angels & Ghosts, we
know that "thought forms" can be believed to a point that they
are allowed to alter one's own reality. Call it human ability to
create. Some consider the entertaining of these negative thoughts
a form of demon possession, the thoughts, themselves, being the
demons. One might also contend that fallen thoughts are also the
same as fallen angels (angels representing a higher, more pure
thought form, or truth). Though this idea is shocking, the mind is
powerful; all that exists (whether in the physical or spiritual), is
really comprised of thought in the one great mind that is Spirit.
If one takes the idea of negative thoughts further by recognizing
that what a person believes is what he becomes, then it make
sense that what people call demons could simply be negative
people - especially a negative, disembodied person...a ghost.
Ghosts are trapped in darkness, as they are people who have not
moved on in life unto light, peace and truth after the death of their
physical body. They remain earthbound for various reasons; some
good and some not so good. The negativity surrounding some
ghosts and their intentions often confuses or tricks people into
believing they are demons. But when one studies Jesus casting out
devils, it becomes apparent, after studying the original words
translated as devil and demon, that he was possibly casting out
disembodied people who had chosen to inhabit another's body.
Demon Possession and Influence
Some suppose that the opportunities for a demon to enter our world and wreak havoc is limited. They believe
demons to be real non-human entities that must be invited into one's person or life. Once the demon has an "in,"
it will feed upon the energies expelled by negative emotions such as anxiety, fear and anger, especially those
directed at the demon if detected. However, we believe there is a better understanding of what a demon is; a
mislabeling and identification of poor human behavior on the other side of the grave. We base this upon study
and field research, much of which is found within the book, Helping Ghosts.
