I Helped Exorcize a SpiritWritten by Robert Bruce Baird
Actually I have 'helped' exorcize spirits more than once but this particular one could have beeen taken by science to prove that exorcisms are not weird and do not need dogma or fear to be used with them.
An Exorcism I Was Involved In:
While working at Ed Martin Olds and trying to get an alternative ISDN project off ground; I made friends with a man my age named Bill Crawford. Bill took a month of observing me before he allowed I might be a sincere person. Discussions about psychic things had to be done in private due to a lay minister by name of Herman Benge who was top salesman, and who liked to hold forth on Bible and Jesus. During one of Herman's sermons he said something that I couldn't stomach. I succinctly suggested that he wasn't living life of Jesus and hadn't done any scholarly work to understand origins of Bible and intent of power mongers who wrote it. I said a little about Holy Trinity being known in 'The Triune Nature of Man' from much more ancient times as well as Macho domination of current Christian attitudes or 'war on women'. The import of soul and its' 'connectiveness' that makes it impossible for any one man to authoritatively speak FOR god seemed to appeal to Bill a great deal. God is more than any one man or even all of mankind collectively can understand in this physically oriented frame of reference and Herman was subject to needing answers or egoistic anthropomorphism. Bill made it clear that he agreed without jeopardizing his relationship with Herman. Herman took it very well and never seemed to hold a grudge as many Christians I have known often do.
Another man who worked with us at this car dealership started to come to my office away from other people and share many psychic things. His name was Tom Bellamy and he had been through by-pass surgery (Co-enzyme Q-10 reduces need for such surgery substantially.) a couple of years before I met him. While under surgeon's knife he experienced an Out of Body Experience or OOBE and had seen white light. His experiences 'fit' with work of Moody and Kubler-Ross who Sherry and I saw at Shrine Auditorium as moderated by Father Justin Belitz.
Part of Tom's rehabilitation after operation had included bio-feedback therapy. This therapy mimics part of attunements of Yoga and led to him being able to sense many things of a psychic nature that were at odds with his prior beliefs. Many of things I spoke about resonated in his soul and he was also a knowledgeable numerologist. As a leader in his Catholic Church community and because his wife would consider no things related to spiritism he was limited in expressing or using these things in his life. He only spoke about these things with me at first and was even hesitant to talk to Bill in depth. He was a conservative man through years of having grown up in a religiously oppressive system but there is much wisdom in this concern for open discussion about spirits and like, as we all know. The spirit of Inquisitions is, after all is said and done, 'still afoot' as another paranormal buff by name of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle was fond of saying.
Tomís wife was suffering from some unknown neurological ailment. A total of $250,000 had been spent trying to figure it out when we first began to talk about it. He had taken her to Mayo Clinic and McGill University in Montreal. All local 'experts' were befuddled and had no clue. The discussions of 'psychosomatic origins' are often just ways of avoiding real explanations by blaming person for what practitioners refuse to admit they have little or no knowledge about. I listened to stories of how X-rays and other techniques found no causes yet everyone agreed there was a problem. Suggestions of alternative ways to cure and solve problem went nowhere. His wife would have nothing to do with spiritual 'healers' or other 'heresy'. I told Tom about correlation of psychic points chart and acupuncture charts and a point on upper arm where they meet.
