I know I have said this already in the past...I apologize that my blog subjects are regurgitated however, I spent most of the weekend dealing (and still dealing) trying to handle this situation. This person had a demon attach to them during a innocent sight seeing "trolley ghost tour " here in the city of St Augustine, Florida. It was one of those tours where they would stop at some places and actually go inside while the driver facilitates a walk thru explaining the history of the haunted location. The client did touch quite a few items in areas where they had signs telling tour guests to "stay behind the yellow line" for example. In Saint Augustine there's quite a few different tours and even the most innocent of things something can easily happen especially if you're not in the right state of mind such as maybe being depressed over a break up or you're sick or anything like that. It truly weakens your armor and unfortunately that stands out to these entities like a red flag. The weakest link type of thing. Or if someone thinks they want to be a big shot and show off by taunting and using provocation and what they don't realize they very well may get an attachment and like I've said many times, demons are very patient they may not do it right when you ask they may just wait until it's the lowest point in your life and then pounce on you. They will make every attempt to oppress you then we know it the next step is......possession.
What Is Demonic Oppression?
Demonic oppression is the work of evil spiritual forces that try very hard to encourage us to sin. It mimics depression down to a T! Discernment, which is a gift of the spirit, is needed to determine which one is actually present. There's a lot of mental illnesses that are not caused by the devil and his demons. We have to be very careful and not blame everything on demons. They have the ability to make us feel spiritually dead, and to be in bondage to sinful activities and thoughts. This oppressive work is performed by demons, which are fallen angels who resist God, and who sinned in their first estate. (This information can be found in the book of Jude chapter 6). They wage war against God, against God's people, and against unbelievers as well. Their goal is to bring as many people as possible into rebellion against God and condemnation in hell. They want to drag as many souls to hell as possible.
I just want to say I certainly do not blame St Augustine nor any of their tours for causing anybody any spiritual torment. When people want to know about this stuff they're going to find a way to do it no matter what so I don't personally place blame on these places or ghost tours. There's just so many different ghost tours out there making money or places seen on "reality" ghost shows charging a fortune to investigate at their place now all because it was on Ghost Adventures. It makes me sick. People getting ripped off by con artists out there promising a show or whatever and then people are left without refund for the tickets they the main thing is the opportunity for attachment is never given a second thought. Just because it doesn't happen right when you do whatever it is you do doesn't mean at a later point it's going to manifest.
And of course all these people just have years of experience that they can't prove I can easily prove back to 1999 it can't be that hard but you got demonologists left and right popping up the same ones you see on TV but yet the ones that truly deserved to have their knowledge to be put out there ones that I have met nobody knows about because either they don't know anybody in the right place or what ever. This field attracts a lot of nobodies and they want to feel like a somebody. This field attracts a lot of misfits of society and you know I'm right.
I received a call from this person's friend who was referred to me by a acquaintance who worked at one of the stores there who sold K2 meters, voice recorders and other types of ghost hunting gadgets. Evidently the behavior of this client was changing so fast and so much the roommate/best friend was truly concerned for his safety and of his friends. I have a process I do....I always ask a series of questions in attempt to try to gain an idea of how most likely the person came across the entity and if it was given legal rights or if this was inadvertently done. I don't just jump in and assume anything. Much information needs to be gathered first and sometimes a mental health evaluation. My interview with a client can be time-consuming but you have to know as much as possible because you want to attempt to figure out where it most likely came from and maybe give you a better idea of what you're dealing with. Exorcist Reverend Bradley Luoma was kind enough to send me a copy of the questions that he created as a "client interview" type of title. It gains the same answers but not near as much time-consuming as the one I created.. LOL. He's has many, many, years of experience just like my dad did so I'm blessed to have some guidance when needed. So thank you Reverend Bradley.
As I said in one of my past articles, some people will flat out lie because they're bored or they are seeking attention. I've run into many simply seeking attention and we all get lonely at times and we are being BOMBARDED with at least 6 or 7 "reality" ghost hunting shows and "Paranormal Encounters" where you have people sharing a "true" events that happened to them at some point in their life. Then the next thing you know they have a fan page for themselves because they were on "A Haunting" for example or one of those shows as a guest. It's sickening. Then......the Exorcist one, I forget the name but a male (alpha big time) demonologist is called to help ones in valid demonic distress just as I am. It was so refreshing to see someone actually real, doesn't appear to be in it just for the money and ironically has some of the same procedures that I do. And most importantly he makes it clear that without Jesus Christ helping none of that could've happened. Just like when a priest does an exorcism who do you think he's calling on for help but yet some people try to take credit for when someone says "thank you so much for helping me" no one says well I couldn't of done it without the help from above.
I'm not saying the investigators don't deserve any type of acknowledgement because it's hard work to do an investigation to determine what needs to be done. People don't understand all the hours That goes into watching & listening to audio and video watching very carefully as you can literally blink and have missed something on video or simply yawn and missed something on the audio. People who do make up demonic activity or false scratches etc.. what they're doing is drawing attention to themselves. It's the law of attraction in my humble opinion you are now on their radar. They know you have an interest in them. But in this case that was not the situation. They definitely have a problem on their hands. In some cases if it was real to them it's real. Even if I feel nothing malevolent is going down I still understand if it's real to that person you have to take an approach and be very sensitive to their feelings even if I disagree. I still have a very concerned and upset person in true fear so it still requires finding them some source, some kind of relief and finding who can do so.
Just trying to point out and warn that so many more people are doing things that they don't realize by opening very dark doors, some inadvertently, some on purpose. And once something is out of the box it is very difficult to put it back in.
