Demons Versus Ghosts: Identification
We have noticed that what some are calling “demons” are the
same as what other people are calling "shadow ghosts" (dark
shadows that move). Shadow ghosts are earthbound people who
have not progressed beyond this Earth, having chosen to remain
behind with humanity. If a ghost does not undergo a cleansing
review of their life and reunite with loved ones who await in spirit
(light), then he or she will continue to carry baggage earned from
the time of having a body. The darkness these ghosts have as a
countenance does not necessarily mean he or she is a "bad egg;"
for darkness (as Jesus spoke of in the Bible) is indicative of a lack
of understanding, ignorance, being lost, and of course, negativity.
This does not make them evil demons who work for a devil.
Spirit Possession: Ghost Possession?
Redefining Demon and Spirit Possession as Ghost Possession
Tinseltown has embellished the religious notion, through use
of movies, that demons can possess the human body. This
along with ghost hunting TV shows has led to paranormal
investigators believing they can exorcise demons from homes
and people. Know that superstition and fear will only work for
so long when a haunting or spirit possession is
misdiagnosed. Through an incorrect interpretation of
frightening activity caused by something unseen, people tend
first to believe that spirit possession is demonic in nature.
Ghosts: Dark Spirits Who "Attach" or "Possess"
Some "dark" spirits can be very negative and troublesome but so can people who have bodies. One need only
read the local news for a recount of daily troubles. We tend to think that some ghosts (people in spirit) have
learned that they can co-inhabit another person’s body or at least influence their behavior. This is commonly
known as "spirit possession," but should be better termed as “ghost possession.” If it makes you feel better,
some investigators of the paranormal call it "attachment." No matter what you label this phenomenon, it is not
"demon possession" as some might have you to believe.
Why or How Does Ghost Possession Happen?
Ghosts have been found to possess people for several reasons: by accident; to assist the one whom they have
possessed; to continue experiencing physical life; to experience physical addictions (see hypnagogia and
incubus, succubus ghosts); attachments to earthly possessions or loved ones; trauma – not even understanding
they have died (because they are, in fact, still alive), or even to menace or harm another person for revenge or
just “the fun of it.”
"…we must consider that the bindings between people and ghosts might be strong, and that the exorcised
ghosts may come back and possess these people again. The patient must work at not letting the ghost back in.
Emotional bindings between people and ghosts are like rubber bands that draw the ghost back into the patient's
body. Those emotional currents must be removed by the patient. That's why, in some cases, the patient also
requires my psychotherapy. Hell exists only in their minds -- there is no such place in the non-material world -
but the mind makes it true for them. That kind of psychotherapy takes some time, and is rarely easy, as some
ghosts are completely unaware of their situation -- especially when they died under tragic or traumatic
circumstances. During my thirty years practice, I've not encountered such entities. Instead, I've discovered that
the attributes describing demons or the devil derive from ghosts in the human body."
- Wanda Pratnicka , author of Possessed by Ghosts: Exorcisms in the 21 Century
Wanda’s experiences parallel what Jesus is claimed to have taught about demons (spirits) leaving a person’s
body, and then, returning later:
“When an unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walks through dry places, seeking rest, and finds none. Then
he says, I will return into my house from whence I came out; and when he comes back, he finds it empty, swept,
and garnished. Then he goes, and takes with himself seven other spirits more bad natured than himself, and
they enter in and dwell there: and the last [state] of that man is worse than the first...” - Matthew 12:43-45
Helping Unclean Spirits
What does this mean? Ghosts are people in spirit - unclean spirits who need assistance to move past the prison
that their mind has produced. This type of assistance would be similar to what a psychologist might do to help
a person throught traditional means: counseling. We read in 1 Peter 3:19 that Jesus “preached to the spirits in
prison.” If these "people in spirit" (unclean spirits) had been condemned to an eternal hell, Jesus would not
have inclined to help them. We, too, should help "unclean spirits" by letting them know they should:
1) not be afraid to move on with their lives - for better things await them
2) understand that their bodies have died, though they are still alive in the present time
3) not fear eternal punishment (in hell), for it does not exist
4) meet loved ones who await them by turning toward the light and experiencing peace, joy and love
Loved ones, enlightened spirits, await these lost people and need our help assisting them. Helping Ghosts is
about moving the person into the present while leaving behind troubles from the past. Maybe it takes
assistance from both planes to help some of the departed make it home to the afterworld.
Curing Ghost or "Spirit Possession"
Dr. Edith Fiore, a noted psychologist and author of the book, The Unquiet Dead, has worked with patients for
twenty years whom she at first thought had multiple personalities or even past lives. She soon discovered there
were more than one person or spirit inhabiting the body of some of her patients. Edith learned to explain to the
possessing spirit that he or she needed to leave the patient's body and that loved ones were awaiting with the
promise of joy and peace. The ghost possessing the body of another would learn through her counseling that
their life journey could continue if they headed unto the light with family or friends. She never encountered a
demon in twenty years of work and is a highly regarded author and authority on ghost possession.
Jesus, the Bible and Possession
Perhaps two accounts of Jesus in the Bible give us important keys to understanding the spirit world. Jesus
stated to Nathanael, “You shall see angels ascending and descending upon the son of man,” and we are told
that James, Peter and John witnessed Jesus speaking with Moses and Elijah from the other side. Perhaps, Jesus
was showing us that the angels ascending and descending represented two-way communication between spirit
and the physical worlds taking place, and that the pulling back of the veil (so to speak) revealed Moses and
Elijah or disembodied spirits in the light (spirit world) speak to us. We wonder if Jesus’ true mission was to free
earthen bound spirits and assist them in moving on with their lives. Maybe the advice he gave was not only for
us who are alive and in-body but also for those who have passed but need assistance.
Think about Jesus in the Bible casting out unclean spirits and imagine what happened, if true. We read that
witnesses saw the physical manifestations of the real ministry Jesus was doing in the unseen realm. We cannot
help but wonder if he was freeing the unseen captives in spirit while freeing people bound by them in the
physical world. We read that he demonstrated power when he spoke with the possessing spirits, directing them
to leave the person who was possessed. Upon removal of the ghost (or ghosts) that was co-inhabiting another’s
body, the rightful owner of the body would be instantly transformed – freed from whatever physical and mental
abnormalities were present prior to the exorcism. This agrees with what Dr. Edith Fiore also found to be true.
I believe our understanding of possession has to come into the light of this truth. People want to continue to
chase "demons" because they are unable to wrap their minds around the idea of ghosts possessing or, at least,
attaching to human beings. Some religion can create greater damage if it promotes fear and falsehoods to
people. Paranormal investigators and so-called "demonologists" need to cease from chasing ghosts for fun and
fame and begin to seek to understand how to help those bound on the either side of the grave.
