Paranormal or Demonic Experiences - On Being an Empath, and Concerning Warding Off Spirits
Now this story actually starts in 1974, on my date of birth. Somewhere in my teenage years though, I just started having the odd unexplained experience. I've had strange problems for a while, and still have them today. It is evidence that I can't really talk about some things, and this is proved by the exceedingly attractive young female mental health workers that paid me a visit just two days ago.
That's right - and lets not forget the two armed men with metal badges pinned to their shirts that escorted them here either.
Hell, I'd actually say or do lots of strange things if I could only get the friendlier of the two to start dropping by for visits - the women, that is. . .
But fuck it, right? This is my world - and I'll tell it just as it happened. That's just what I do, and if I occasionally get carted off to the state hospital, as I did in 2005, then it's all shits and giggles in the end, and another web page story that will appear as soon as the author is free again.
Of course here in rural Texas - anyone who "hears voices," or "sees things" is most likely to be considered to be under the influence of an intoxicant of some kind, or just extremely mentally ill. You can count me down for "mentally ill" if you like, as I had strange and unmentionable experiences long before I'd ever used any sort of illegal substance.
In any case, I'd like you to take a minute to read about one of several Demon possession stories that I could tell - but this is the only one published, and it's on Info Barrel, and is linked below.
. . .and NO, I couldn't care less if you believe any of this, or anything discussed in the link below.
A Common Shadow Creature
I don't know anything about the occult. I've always been halfway interested in learning about some of it, but I've also been self aware enough to decide that it just wasn't a good idea for me to investigate it too thoroughly. I am, however, completely unable to avoid the occult. Occult problems just find me. I do not look for them.
Several months ago a friend came over, looked through my books, and asked if If I had any books about witchcraft. I told her that I didn't. She came over again a few weeks later, and without telling me about it - she left a book about witchcraft. No, I've not read the book.
About a month ago another friend came over and was in a tremendous state of distress. He insisted that people in my hometown were praying to demons, and having demons do "this and that," and that there was nothing that I could do about it, and that all was hopeless.
Less than a week ago a friend told me that she was fairly sure that I am what is often referred to as an Empath. As I understand it, the term Empath refers to someone that literally receives stimuli from external forces that are not always flesh and blood.
Yes - I just threw all of modern science out the window, with the exception, of course, of all the possibilities and questions that arise from the sub atomic realm of physics, and the properties therein, that also lie in the more common realms. It's not that I don't like science - it's that I hold a lot of contempt for those who live sterile lives, and think that their five senses have the capability to measure and determine the extent of all reality. We've a limitless universe - and infinity is completely incongruous with human understanding. I've nothing but scorn to offer those who follow the shallow nonsense of the new atheist movement. I'd actually prefer the witches for company, they at least, do have some spirituality and some awe to enjoy.

Warding Off Evil Spirits
So the question, naturally, came up - how does one ward off evil spirits? Of course what I've always used with great affect is one of the following Christian things, the Lord's Prayer, or the Twenty Third Psalm.
You know, I was raised on of of those hard core and often idiotic fundamentalist churches that teaches that the world was created in six days. . . .cause "God said so." Well, anyone with time to think more than half a second about anything can see right through that bullshit - most folks, however, should be able to see an allegory when they read one. It's just a damned shame, in my no so humble opinion, that literary devices and reading comprehension aren't so valued in Rockefeller affected America; but whatever.
No, there is no magical bath that can permanently guarantee someone a trip to harps and clouds land. I sort of wonder what other sort of "magick" those folks believe in, and just where in the cracker jack box is the super secret Bible decoder pen found? Basically, if you are going to a church where the fear of sex is preached because it might lead to dancing, and that magical dips in water reserve eternal spots in Jesus land is the defining principle. I advise you stop going to that congregation - they can't read.
Back to the WARDING thing:
From talking to folks on the net and from researching things on the net - salt is always a warder off of the evil spirits, and the other major thing used is the herb Sage. Now, what I'd read on the net is that Sage and Pine Needles should be burned in your home to ward off evil spirits. But I asked another Lady friend (yes, I love my homeboys - but I'll always prefer women) told me that that could be correct; but that according to a book that I do own and have read - that the Native Americans, and especially the Sioux, used Sage and Cedar to burn together to ward off evil spirits, and to otherwise purify their environment, and especially before turning in for the night.
And so as it happened the female friend who'd left me the book on witchcraft a few months ago came back over for a visit. We were talking about this and about that, and the discussion came up about the evil spirits, the sage, the cedar, the pine needles, and even the salt. All this time my ten thousand mp3 strong media player, forever on random, played in the background.
I asked her what she knew about the warding off of spirits, and she asked,
Do you want me to cast the demons out of your trailer?
Well, hell to the yes, I thought ,
Go for it, please!
. . . Is what I told her, and so she then asked if I had any olive oil, and of course I did and I do, and so she got the olive oil out, and proceeded to smear some above each and every door and window in my tiny travel trailer home. When she was done with that, she came to me, and I'm a bit of a chatter box and she told me to be quite. I did what I was asked. At this very moment in that point in time she smeared some olive oil on my forehead, and The Grateful Dead tune Friend Of The Devil just so happened to be playing on my computer. With her finger and some oil on my forehead, she prayed. The power suddenly went out not just in my trailer, but in the entire area.
She'd cast out every demon on the block.
Friend Of The Devil.
