Ghosts vs. Demons: Real or Coincidence

Written by Gloria Young

As a ghost hunter and paranormal investigator, I have had my share of experiences with ghosts. I have also had my share of people asking me how I know it was a ghost that made those experiences happen. My response goes something like, 'when I get my hair pulled, my shirt pulled or I get pushed and, when turning around there is no one there, it’s hard for me to say that it’s not a ghost. When performing an investigation, I know whererepparttar other members ofrepparttar 122221 group are andrepparttar 122222 realization that I was touched by something that no longer exists as a part of this world, becomes very profound to me. It took an extreme amount of energy for that ghost to perform that action and he/she picked me to do it to. I feel very honored. It is not often that one is chosen for such an honor.

As I am able to discussrepparttar 122223 effects of dealing with a ghost, I think it is proper at this point to discussrepparttar 122224 possibilities of demons. First, let me make it very clear that in over ten years of performing investigations in buildings, graveyards and homes I have never come across anything evil or malevolent. I am not saying that there isn’t anything like that out in this world but it is not something that I have ever come across.

Personally, I don’t believe that such things exist. I also don’t believe that these things have anything to do with religion or God. You cannot demand them to go away inrepparttar 122225 name ofrepparttar 122226 Lord. The Lord didn’t make them. How can you expectrepparttar 122227 Lord to take them away? Religion has nothing to do with any of these things.

Demonologists cannot take away things that are evil. Takingrepparttar 122228 word for what it is and means – demon is obvious in that it is something not from this world but –ology is “the study of”, therefore, demonologist stands for someone who studies demons. The word doesn’t stand for remover of demons. I have a difficult time understanding, let alone believing that someone…a human being can take away something that is made from evil. Standing inrepparttar 122229 middle of a room with a cross that has probably been blessed does not make evil leave. It does makerepparttar 122230 person performing this ritual andrepparttar 122231 person who lives inrepparttar 122232 house feel much better but it serves no other purpose.

The most merciful thing inrepparttar world, I think, isrepparttar 122220 inability ofrepparttar 122221 human mind to correlate all its contents. We live on a placid island of ignorance inrepparttar 122222 midst of black seas of infinity, and it was not meant that we should voyage far. The sciences, each straining in its own direction, have hitherto harmed us little; but some dayrepparttar 122223 piecing together of dissociated knowledge will open up such terrifying vistas of reality, and of our frightful position therein, that we shall either go mad fromrepparttar 122224 revelation or flee fromrepparttar 122225 light intorepparttar 122226 peace and safety of a new dark age. - H. P. Lovecraft

"Every Cause has its Effect; every Effect has its Cause; everything happens according to Law; Chance is but a name for Law not recognized; there are many planes of causation, but nothing escapesrepparttar 122227 Law."--The Kybalion (1)

A new student is advised to keep this admonition in mind as s/he views this information, for deception as a product ofrepparttar 122236 Occult allowed bothrepparttar 122237 Letters to come into existence while atrepparttar 122238 same time allowedrepparttar 122239 darker elements ofrepparttar 122240 Occult to rise to a power that is perilously dangerous for humanity at large.” - The Fetch Master Qaballist inrepparttar 122241 Isisian Traditions.

"The other shape, If shape it might be call'd, that shape had none, Distinguishable in member, joint, or limb; Or substance might be call'd that shadow seem'd; For each seem'd either; black it stood as night, Fierce as ten furies, terrible as Hell, And shook a dreadful dart; what seem'd his head The likeness of a kingly crown had on. Satan was now at hand; and from his seat The monster, moving onward, came as fast With horrid strides; Hell trembled as he strode." -- John Milton


I have written many other books with all manner of reference and scholarship. It is about fifty books as I begin to write this book. There will be many questions about what an alchemist or sage is thatrepparttar 122242 reader will justifiably have after reading this offering. Perhaps I am not an alchemist andrepparttar 122243 title or label is of no great consequence to me, even though a decade ago people who should know what one is began telling me that is what I can be called. Time/Life videos called Jung an alchemist and if he was then I am too.

This book will not be a well-referenced book with lots of quotes seeking to prove points through evidence. It will be more free-flowing and integrative just as alchemy is. That is not to say alchemy is not very patient and detailed or that this book will avoid anything. It is just that I have already gone into great detail on most things and it is a good idea to address things with broad strokes occasionally too.
