Let the beauty we love be what we do. ~ Rumi
One can imagine what it must be like, from the perspective of one who has never encountered the paranormal, to hear of a dark spirit attacking a person. It sounds like insanity, just a hallucinatory bit of the impossible in this physical world’s reality. But for me, it has happened, and it is as real as anything that can be measured or seen.
Before my encounter with this entity, I was one of the skeptics and dismissed the stories of spiritual attachments as figments of the imagination and misguided beliefs. I perceived those who brought up this topic as being credulous and did not want to discuss this further. But we do need to discuss this. It is a tragedy that people who are attacked have nowhere to go for solace, understanding, or help. We need to open up the dialogue so that people who truly know how to help overcome these dark entities can minister to those who are afflicted, without shame, condemnation, or judgment. Being psychologically and physically attacked by a dark or foreign spirit is a very real and intensely distressing trauma. Psychologists and psychiatrists, with a few blessed exceptions, do not know how to address these situations other than to call them a “split” that needs psychotherapy or medication. This approach needs to be remedied. We need to consider the possibility that the ailment is in fact caused by something akin to an attack by a dark or foreign spirit and bring to bear the proper response that will help the afflicted.
I am an average girl. I am a Christian devoted to God, Jesus, and The Holy Spirit. While I am spiritually inclined and aspire to becoming a being of love and light (this aspiration has been with me since I was a tiny girl), there is nothing remarkable about my faith or spirituality. Because of this, I considered myself an unlikely target if such spiritual attachments actually existed. So then why did I become a target for this spiritual entity? I believe it is my trusting nature. I have an open heart and so I try not to judge, but there seems to be a line between judgment and discernment. I can’t see myself changing, so I am in need of boundaries and protection. There is one other thing that created an opening for the Dark. I was attending a spiritual retreat to learn about healing methods and I learned to use a pendulum. I was trying to contact my angels, and this is when I believe the ghost entity came through. For this reason, I admonish anyone using a pendulum or any device associated with the occult to stop using it immediately.
This all began after I went to a soul reading. I believed I had established contact with my angels there, and afterwards I used the pendulum to continue contacting them, asking them questions. I had beautiful angels and guides come through to answer me. They warned me not to go to funerals or into cemeteries. I did not know why, but I heeded the warning. I paid attention carefully to all my communications through the pendulum. Eventually, I did not need the pendulum to speak with the spirits. This was a sign that I was in trouble. I was unaware that I was a target of a dark spirit, who I have nicknamed “Ghostie,” and who used no end of creativity to become attached to me. My communications with the spiritual world soon became more abusive and caused me to isolate myself. Eventually, several months after the initial spiritual communication, I experienced something of a psycho-spiritual breakdown.
Since I try to keep an open heart and try not to judge, I used little discernment and assumed all communication was with God and the angels. I learned too late that I was communing with both the Light and the Dark. I cannot go into details of my psycho-spiritual trauma, but I will say again that the Dark was creative, intelligent, and cunning. After I had the breakdown, I stopped isolating myself, opened up about my communing with the spiritual world, and tried to find help in removing this darkness. I did find someone, a spiritual healer, who was able to remove the Dark for a very short period of time. The feeling of freedom from the Dark was exhilarating and refreshing: I felt like myself again after so many months. But the effect was temporary, and I would need to have this “spirit cleansing” done again. And again, and again, and so on. This spirit was not following the rules. It seemed intent on staying attached to me, no matter what prayers, admonitions, rituals, or sacred objects were used. I became so in need of the spiritual healer to get just the tiny breaks she was able to offer that I felt so dreadful about bothering her. She recommended another person as well and he has me cleared daily for a short time, affording me about fifteen blessed minutes of peace and a cleansed energy field.
Ultimately, I know that it is up to me to remove this Ghostie. I know that I can do this, that I must be the one to do this. I have been struggling with this for so long that the ordeal has weakened me temporarily, both spiritually and psychologically. However, I have also accumulated information and self-awareness that I can pass on these to others who are enduring a similar situation. Getting rid of Ghostie may take a while, but the entity will go.
My reason for writing this is to introduce the reality of spiritual attachments, to provide my testimony of its existence, and to share my perspective. My answers to this, and the remedies, will need time. I am working on these and will know more in the near future. So Much Love to all!!!
