What You Need to Know About the Demonic
Demons are the terrorists of the paranormal. First off, what is a demon? A demon is a fallen angel. It’s an intelligent entity that was never human to begin with. Their form is half man and half beast. However, when they want to lure someone, they do not take on their true form.
It’s their job to be hateful towards human beings. They all have one goal in mind, and that’s to get humans to fall as much as possible. They’re resentful, deceptive, and hateful towards us. How do they come into to someones life? They usually pick a vulnerable target like somebody going through a very difficult time or someone who feels like they have no control of their own lives. In a way, demons are con-artists. In order to attract people, demons take on the form of something that a human being would be sympathetic to. If someone opens the door for a demon, they’ll walk right in.
What kind of forms would they take? Depends on what their target is sympathetic and emotionally attached to. They’ve been known to be masters of psychology. For example, a woman moved into an apartment with a friend of hers that had recently divorced and been diagnosed with cancer. Paranormal activity started up and had gotten more severe. The ghost of a boy had been reaching out to him, who had kids, and missed them dearly. The woman on the other hand was violently getting attacked. The ghost of this little boy turned out to be a demonic entity. The demon wanted to get rid of the woman so it could have the man all for itself. Demons are tricky and that’s how they bate you.
If someone more dominant is present, demons get threatened. What do demons do about this? They’ll provoke fear on that person by any means necessary. I came across the Devil’s Gate Dam in Pasadena, CA and wanted to look into it. The story behind it is that there is a portal to hell opened there. Hearing about this, I had to check it out immediately before dusk. I checked it out and jumped in the shower afterwards to clean up. I then felt a slight burning sensation on my leg. I looked down and saw three big claw marks down my leg. At this point, what came to mind is that I had a choice to make. I could either get scared about this, or embrace this experience. I chose to embrace it. I just gave a little chuckle about it and said “I got scratches......cool!” When I tell people about this experience, they always ask if I’ve seen a priest or anything. I haven’t. Some people have gotten upset at me for this. However, nothing bad has happened since this event. Immediately after I discovered the scratches, I made boundaries. I said in a firm, loud, voice that if anything was around me that it had to leave.
If there’s something that I keep running across, it’s that demons seem to favor taking the form of things we’re sympathetic to. If you watch Ghost Adventures, you see that they’ve come across this on numerous occasions. My partner and I’s theory behind it is that children are very pure. They’re just starting to develop and learn about life. Why would something so pure that died hang around in places that are known to have evil presences?
They’re many theories about demons. One that comes to mind is if they were never human to begin with, what were they? Where do they come from? More research to look into on this.
