How to Fight Evil
Are you haunted?
What is evil?
Some believe that there is no evil. No God. No devil. Truly, I believe that there is so much misunderstanding and confusion over this issue due to everyone's limited definition of God. In our efforts to comprehend something as magnanimous as a "God" entity, we force the infinite and eternal energy of ALL into small man-made concepts. Is He a man? Is He a She? Does He exist at all?
Your understanding of God will continue to evolve as you spiritually progress.
There is no need to convince others of your own perception of God because everyone sees God as they need to at the current moment in time.
Even those without any religious belief in God can recognize the existence of positive and negative energy. Scientists can identify these energies with physical evidence. There is positive energy and negative energy.
To keep things simple, we define God and goodness with positive energy and positive feelings. Evil is defined as negative energy and negative feelings. So for spiritual protection purposes, there is a God and there is a devil as people collectively have conceived the notions of such. So now, know thy enemy.
7 Secrets About Evil You Must Know
There are many truths to know but when you come up against negative spirits, there are seven truths you must always remember:
#1. You have power over the negative spirits without a physical body.
The human body is a tremendous gift to us. Your pre-mortal agreement to come to earth to experience life with a human body was both a privilege and an honor. It took great courage to accept this challenge but you did so as a way to spiritually progress and thus add to the collective intelligence of the Divine ALL.
Many positive energy spirits choose not to be born on earth for reasons that will help the collective in other ways. But the negative energy spirits are not able to have a human physical body. They do not have the choice to accept or reject one. (On some cosmic level, they also serve a collective purpose but that knowledge will be divulged at another time.)
When you enter a physical body, you are able to experience this physical earth life and all the highs and lows of human emotions, human creativity and invention and the five physical senses that take in the beauty of life.
Negative vibration spirits without a physical body want one. They want ours. And they try to influence us because they themselves have no power otherwise. If you look at the word "DEVIL" and flip it backwards, you'll see the word "LIVED." A life is sacred. The devil never lived. EVIL is the opposite of LIVE.
But just as the light dispels the darkness, positive energy will always send away the negative. You, a positive soul, have the power of ALL the light that exists and can send away any darkness that attempts to overwhelm you.
#2. They vary in energy strength.
According to some religious beliefs, there are different types of evil demonic entities just as there are different levels of angels. Each have their own areas of dominion and responsibility and thus, varying levels of energy vibration=strength. You can do a study upon this subject, but I will not go into that here. Suffice it to know that you can come across varying levels of demonic strength. You don't need to know about the particular entity's background to send it away. But it may take a more concentrated effort to be rid of those with a stronger energy vibration.
I encourage you to enlist the help of as many like-minded, positive, loving people when you confront a demon because there is strength in numbers. However, you must always remember, too, that you--just one positive and loving soul--have more power than a legion of devils. Take hope and courage in that eternal truth.
Another reminder: Ghosts are not evil entities per se. They are the disembodied souls of once living persons, and if their earth personas were evil-minded, their ghosts can stay behind to continue with evil-minded shenanigans but they are not demons or demonic technically speaking.
#3. They never keep their word.
God keeps His Word. His Word is sacred. God makes promises He never breaks them. The devil? He's at the polar opposite of truth. His word means nothing to him. He never makes or keeps promises. He makes deals and always breaks them. Never enter into a deal with evil. No matter how appealing it may appear. It's all lies.
#4. Fear is their greatest tool against you but it is only an illusion.
When a negative spirit is nearby, people talk about a chill or drop in temperature in the air. You may or may not feel it as some people are less sensitive to temperature. But you will most often sense immediately is uneasiness or dis-ease. "Something" will feel weird, off, strange…just not right. Then, will come the fear.
You will sense the fear in a room. You will "feel" the fear. But do not own it as your own. The fear you feel is theirs; they fear because they know of their own limited power and influence. But that is all they can use against you by themselves. They can, however, use YOU against yourself.
You can be the source of negativity if you aren't vigilant: doubt, discouragement, pride/vanity, conflict. Recognize when you are feeling a negative feeling and replace it with love and peace. Negative spirits also can take any human emotion and twist and warp it to make it dark and negative. Even love can become obsessive and motivate people to do bad things in the name of love. Religious wars are fought in the name of God.
There is one emotion that negative spirits cannot emulate: True Peace. Negativity is chaos and unrest. Positivity is true peace.
When in doubt, follow the true peace. You will know it in your heart when you feel it.
#5. They only have power over you if you give it to them.
Your soul already belongs to God. You cannot lose it or offer it in trade. They know this but it won't stop them from trying to get you to allow them to use your physical body and take over your mind. You have the one thing that they want: a physical body in this physical earth plane. They can harass you but not enter you without your permission.
People unknowingly invite them in when they:
- invoke the devil or negative spirits through occult incantations.
- simply address them and enter into conversation with them.
- entertain negative thoughts and engage in negative behavior on a chronic basis.
- choose to enter into a deal or exchange with them.
- get unreasonably angry.
- visit dark places when in a weakened state.
- become ruled by superstition.
- are fearful all the time.
#6. Evil spirits know that they are subject to God and the Christ.
Even if you do not believe in God or Jesus Christ in the conventional, traditional religious sense, evil spirits know of whom we speak. They may mock or deny the power of divinity, but they know they are subject to their command. They, of course, do not want YOU to know that so they will do anything to get you not to believe that God and the Christ consciousness exist.
Although there is more to the Infinite Truth than religion, evil (negative) spirits exist in the dimension where their blessed (positive) opposites exist. Their opposition is the Consciousness that is Love which is the Christ. To combat or protect yourself from evil, you must employ the opposite power which is the Divine.
#7. They must heed what you tell them if you use a key phrase in your command.
Non-religious people, other denominational followers and even spiritual but non-denominational people, misunderstand about the use of the name Jesus Christ. Regardless whether or not you believe in Him in the traditional or conventional sense, as I have previously mentioned, when you are dealing with negative vibrations and negative spirits, they are of the same dimension as their opposite forces which is the positive energy vibration of love which is the Christ consciousnesses. If you do not believe such, you will come to find that those self-same negative spirits surely do even if they pretend not to.
All negative spirits are subject to him and they must obey you, too, as a child of God when you use the following phrases:
"In the name of Jesus Christ and the Almighty God, our Heavenly Father…"
"In the name of all that is good and holy which is God, our Eternal Father, the Alpha and the Omega, Dominus Dei..."
One man whose house was being haunted tried his best to command the evil spirit to leave. And the spirit retorted saucily, "And by whose authority do you cast me out?" Unfortunately, the man did not know how to respond and the spirit laughed. The man ended up leaving his house and the negative entity behind to torment the next tenant.
According to the bible, Jesus needed no talisman or holy relic to cast out demons. He simply said, "Get thee hence, satan." And the evil one had to obey. We are blessed to be able to invoke His Name for spiritual protection.
Three Sacred Truths You Must Always Remember
There are many truths to know but when you come up against negative spirits, there are three sacred truths you must always remember because darkness will confuse you, fill you with doubt and cause you to forget:
#1. You can never be lost.
To illustrate this concept, I recount an incident involving one of my easily disconcerted aunts who, due to age perhaps, has a very poor sense of direction. She gets "lost" frequently if walking about without an escort. During a family vacation, she went to the restaurant salad bar all by herself as I watched from our table. Preparing to return, she looked around and it was clear she was trying to get her bearings. Casually, her gaze went back and forth to the different sections of the room; then she gulped and panicked. Before I could leap to her aid, she grabbed the arm of a passing server and asked for help. I waved to catch their attention and she was safely delivered back to us.
Was she lost? Everyone knew she was in the restaurant. She knew she was in the restaurant. She couldn't find her way back but I could see her and knew she was never in a bit of danger as I could rush to her side at any given moment. In a spiritual sense, we're all in this same situation. We might feel lost. We might believe we are lost. And belief is a powerful force that can take us to all sorts of places, even into a hell of our own making.
The good news is that Divine Providence always knows right where we are. No matter where we go, our whereabouts are known and there is divine assistance ready to rush to our side if we but ask for it.
So the truth is that we can't really be lost unless we believe we are lost. Sadly, too many souls not only believe they are lost but believe even more strongly that they do not deserve to be found.
#2. You are loved and never alone.
You, your soul, was created out of love. Your spirit is love. Spirit is love. There is no way you cannot be loved. You are worthy of being love--no matter what. Never can your spirit be withdrawn from your soul. Your soul can choose to merge into ALL spirit, true, but love is ever-present for you.
You may not feel loved due to other overwhelming feelings at the time. Yet, at the depths of your being, you will know that you are loved.
And you're never alone. Again, humans often experience such lowly feelings that seem to obscure the light of truth. Loneliness is an experience but truth be told, your soul never is truly alone. How can it be when we share one spirit? Loneliness is a state of mind.
#3. There is always hope.
Should you fall into negative vibratory places--darkness--you will feel all those negative vibrations that comprise the darkness including grief, sorrow, hopelessness, unworthiness, despair. When you "feel" hopeless, remember the Divine Truth that there is always hope. Hope for being restored to light. Hope for all good things. Hope for your highest and dearest desires to come to pass. That is what hope is. It is the light when all seems to have fallen into darkness.
Hope is eternal.
Are there places where hope is forsaken? No. Only where hope is given up by an individual. When one believes there is no hope. Even those who have fallen into the deepest of hells they have created for themselves can be reconciled with the light of love that is God.
But you have to believe there is hope and grab onto it with all of your heart, might, mind and strength. Hope and more hope shall be added unto you until your light of love will shine brighter and brighter until you find yourself surrounded by light and in the darkness no more.

What is spiritual protection? A warrior dons armor to protect himself from harm by physical assault. Spiritual protection is like spiritual armor to protect not only one's spirit but also his mind, body and soul. Arrows and bullets afflict only the body, but a spiritual attack can do harm to one's mind-body-spirit well being.
