Considerable numbers of people these days are suffering from causes which are totally unknown to them. Some of them know or sense that there is a possibility of improving their condition and they try as hard as they can to recognize the source of their misfortune.

Many have tried to find a solution to their problems in either traditional or unconventional medicine. Many seek for a solution in their own psyches, but very often even these searches fail.

There is an area which covers a large part of these unrecognized causes but which it very hard to reach; the reason for that being that there is very little knowledge on the subject. That is possession or haunting by ghosts.

Ghosts are entities which previously were people who, after death, did not resolve to pass through to the other side of death's curtain. Possession by ghosts can be the cause of very sad and sometimes positively tragic experiences. This happens for many reasons, chiefly because:

The sicknesses of the ghost pass over to the person possessed;The presence of ghosts brings about powerful mood swings from strong negative emotional outbursts through to profound depression. Ghosts can provoke the possessed person to forms of behavior which are not in the person's character, e.g. aggression, violence etc. If a trait like that already exists in a person it will be intensified considerably by the ghost; Ghosts frequently persuade the possessed to commit suicide or murder;

Ghosts have a powerful influence on the psyche, provoking mental illnesses. A majority of mental illnesses is caused by the presence of ghosts in a person;Ghosts can influence behavior and lead people to dependence on alcohol, drugs as well as to many other unwanted acts.Ghosts are sometimes the cause of people being very severely ill, and even of their deaths. It often happens, too, that because of ghosts many things go wrong, people argue with each other, and sometimes even kill one another.

The presence of ghosts within a person causes numerous consequences. Sometimes it's just a change only in someone's mental state, at other times in their physical health. It's easy to see it with tumors caused by ghosts. When the ghost is inside a person, the tumor appears. and when the ghost departs so does the tumor.

There is knowledge about this

There is vast knowledge about this, for instance in the Kabbala and in Shamanism including specific procedures how to chase out the ghost.

5 years ago, after moving to a new rented apartment, every night we kept hearing steps in the corridor and then the kitchen cupboards would sometimes get opened. Many times when we were not at home things would fall or change places. I personally felt that I am on the verge of nervous breakdown. I just didn't want to be there anymore and especially to sleep there. In addition to the fear, I felt that my intimacy was violated. My then girlfriend, on the other hand, was cool about it as she was already a bit in that kind of stuff. It was insane and scary but this was my turning point from complete skepticism to understanding that there are things beyond. We invited a relative of my then girlfriend who was capable of seeing ghosts and she verified it, communicated with them, told us their stories, let them communicate a bit with us through clicks and made with us a kind of ceremony that made them go with their consent. All noices stopped from that event but I felt I could not stay there anymore and we moved from there after a few months.

I didn't have again such an experience since then and I don't want to have. When there is some strange noise at home during night I am always jumping with horror but it always happens to be caused by normal circumstances, no ghosts.

...Yet another old topic, that I just disagree with completely.

If there is one statement I will defend passionately, it is that there is NO SUCH THING as an EVIL spirit. They are only evil because of the negative views projected upon them.

It is a normal and healthy moment in a person's psychic development, to have a spirit descend upon them. Let's crown people blessed and celebrate -- let's change the way we see the happening -- then the individual (and her spirit) will free to experience this union.

Exorcise a ghost... ..what the frick! Medicate a child for just being a child... ...You people practice things you don't even understand. Just because something DISTURBS you does not make it inherently BAD!

The Story of a Modern-Day Exorcist

Matt Baglio, a California native, is a writer living in Rome. Over the years he has worked for the Associated Press in Rome, and as an editor and contributor for various magazines in Italy and America.

In his book about exorcism, "The Rite," journalist Matt Baglio uses the astonishing true story of one American priest's training as an exorcist to reveal that the phenomena of possession, demons, the Devil, and exorcism are not merely a remnant of the archaic past, but remain a fearsome power in many people's lives even today. “The Rite” will open your eyes to the awesome truth about the paranormal, especially when many would like to dismiss such things as new age or metaphysical blah blah…

Father Gary Thomas was working as a parish priest in California when he was asked by his bishop to travel to Rome for training in the rite of exorcism. Though initially surprised, and slightly reluctant, he accepted this call, and enrolled in a new exorcism course at a Vatican-affiliated university, which taught him, among other things, how to distinguish between a genuine possession and mental illness. Eventually he would go on to participate in more than eighty exorcisms as an apprentice to a veteran Italian exorcist. His experiences profoundly changed the way he viewed the spiritual world, and as he moved from rational skeptic to practicing exorcist he came to understand the battle between good and evil in a whole new light. Journalist Matt Baglio had full access to Father Gary over the course of his training, and much of what he learned defies explanation.

The Rite provides fascinating vignettes from the lives of exorcists and people possessed by demons, including firsthand accounts of exorcists at work casting out demons, culminating in Father Gary's own confrontations with the Devil. Baglio also traces the history of exorcism, revealing its rites and rituals, explaining what the Catholic Church really teaches about demonic possession, and delving into such related topics as the hierarchy of angels and demons, satanic cults, black masses, curses, and the various theories used by modern scientists and anthropologists who seek to quantify such phenomena.

Written with an investigative eye that will captivate both skeptics and believers alike, The Rite shows that the truth about demonic possession is not only stranger than fiction, but also far more chilling.

Editorial Reviews

"Truth is stranger than fiction ... and far more terrifying. Forget what Hollywood tells you about demonic possession and exorcism; The Rite will open your eyes to the awesome truth about such things. I've been investigating paranormal events for some time, but this book taught me much that I didn't know about the timeless battle for the human soul waged between the forces of good and evil. Fascinating, inspiring, and scary, a great read."
—John Kachuba, author of Ghosthunters: On the Trail of Mediums, Dowsers, Spirit Seekers, and Other Investigators of America's Paranormal World

“Matt Baglio’s book is a wake-up call. It smashes the many myths created by Hollywood movies and other amateurs on the subject about exorcism and the role of the exorcist in the Catholic Church.”
—Father Basil Cole, O.P., professor of moral and spiritual theology of the Pontifical Faculty at the Dominican House of Studies, Washington, D.C.

Interesting relevant articles

There are a few interesting and non-conventional articles about this polemic and puzzling subject of ghosts and any other type of metaphysical entities: - that deals with our habitual distinction between physical entities (such as men) and metaphysical ones (such as ghosts) and our disregard of the first for the pursuit of the second which sounds more interesting. It also discusses our skepticism as a block preventing us to see ghosts. - also brilliantly explains why we do not see ghosts. - another brilliant piece that sums it all in a sinccint manner without falling into a bleind belief in neither skepticism nor ghosts. It leads to effective development process and true protection against evil eye (not the new age mambo jambo kind of stuff).

Interesting stuff

Many traditions speak of such things and yet in modern times we remain quite ignorant of these things. From a personal perspective and experience, I feel it is necessary to be mindful of the possibility of such things so that, if anything, we don't judge ourselves so harshly when we are afflicted by our dark states.

It wasn't too long ago that I was awoken to some sort of potent energetic phenomena going on while I was trying to sleep. At that time I wasn't in a state to really care what was going on, I was just agitated that, whatever it was, was bothering me while I was trying to sleep. Well the next day I thought, if it were a possession, I don't care to be of any harm to others, if, this experience was a possession and it's nature was malevolent. So...I thought nothing of it to contact the only acquaintance I knew of that dealt with this sort of thing whom I came across while doing research on traditional herbs and medicines. Next thing I know I was being de-possessed of a couple of entities and "repaired" in a shamanistic way.

I don't have the expertise to understand the nature of this experience. I can say, that in the weeks and months following this experience, my inner life changed profoundly. Things that tortured me internally for years basically vanished or were resolved. Clarity of mind returned in abundance. And any bouts of melancholia have been exceedingly sparse.

Now I don't think it quite wise to go to whatever Joe Blow out there who claims they do this sort of thing and ask them for this service. But maybe it is wise to allow yourself the freedom to consider such things.

Why bother?

Well just because a thing is possible doesn't make
it desirable unless you wish to be taken in by spirits
or immortals why bother?

"Schools of practice fixated either on form/matter or on
voidness. Those fixated on form are those that mechanically
or obsessively practice physical exercises, concentration
on the physical or imaginary body, rituals, asceticism, or
other formal practices. Those fixated on voidness are the
quietists, for whom tranquility is the goal. These schools
are called aberrated because they do not transcend their
own limitations, they mistake means for ends, and thus they
cannot reach the Tao. In Taoism, the definition of aberrant
schools dates back at least to Chuang - tzu and the Triplex
Unity, works of the third century B.C. and the second
century A.D."

Restoration of the celestial
within the temporal is the return

guidance needed

It is absolutely intersting article. One request, Can you help me to get out of black magic exposed by guru shri parthasarthy rajagopala chari.
Many followers of him died because he abets suicide, when he feels like cheated. Causes for this could range like
followers not heeding to his command of marriage with other followers, even though requesting that their parents are aganist the marriage.
Not donating huge amount of money for lavish master cottage, which is ever used, build it with crores of rupees where there is no proper water or food or electricity.
I will give my worst experience with him, when he ordered his follower, who was with him at Satkol in India and he got an urgent message his mother expired, then black magician commanded he should not go to attend funeral as soul left the body. Because of fear that follower has acceded to the request. the same guru went to attend his wife death by travelling nearly 800k and he did not come out of room because of pain and agony he says.
That is the way black magician is, but my doubt is how to esacpe from it as i have been tortured because of powers.
