Influenced by Evil Spirits: 6 Symptoms You Should Never Ignore

Updated on August 23, 2010

Have you ever felt inexplicably angry, sad, exhausted, or otherwise not yourself? Ever experienced a dramatic personality change while under the influence of alcohol? It’s possible that those feelings weren’t you, but the affect of dark or other-dimensional energy.

Based upon our empirical research, we believe it’s possible for lost souls, defined as those which have not yet gone to the Light after their physical bodies have died, to intrude in your everyday affairs, even to the point of dramatically influencing your behavior.

These unseen influences range from benign lost souls looking for a way out of their predicament, to outright malicious demons who desire to harm you.

There exist many spiritual professionals today who offer different forms of depossessions, clearings, and cleansings. Unfortunately, since the origin of the attachment or possession can be very complex and often difficult to pinpoint, and the process of removing the harmful energy can be time consuming, few practitioners are experienced enough to successfully handle the tougher cases.

Regrettably, even if they take measures to protect themselves, some people are more susceptible to the influence of lost souls and attack by dark energy.

Below we list 6 common symptoms.

1. Sudden drug and, or alcohol abuse. What a better place to get a fix for an invisible, wandering soul than from an existing user. Suddenly drinking or craving alcohol more than you usually do is a sign that you may have company.

If your friends are asking you, “What’s gotten into you, why are you over-doing it so often?”, maybe something really has gotten into you and is driving you to abuse your body.

2. Unusual behavior from a young age. You may very well have picked up a wandering soul early in your life if you’ve endured abuse, surgery, or serious illness as a child, and it (or they) might still be with you.

3. Excessively emotionally trying periods of your life. Extreme stress breaks down your spiritual defenses and opens you up to strange energy.

4. Acute, unexplained bouts of depression. If you can’t explain the source, it’s possible you may be carrying a heavy, unseen load.

5. Hearing voices in your head, especially negative messages, could be a sign that you have a spiritual hitchhiker with you or that you’re hosting a party with uninvited, invisible guests. We believe it’s possible for problematic, other-dimensional energies to plant ideas in your head in order to manipulate your behavior for their benefit. Spiritually sensitive people, or those firmly tuned into their intuition, frequently hear messages within from the other realms, but it can be challenging to keep themselves closed off to foreign, toxic energy.

6. Reading this information and having a strong, critical reaction to it. Guess what? If you have dark energy with you, they’ll do anything to get you to ignore advice that would result in them being identified and escorted away. What you’re feeling, although it may simply be subconscious fear, could be the reaction of unseen entities and since you’re so used to it, you believe it to be your own.

The good news is that it’s very rare for even the darkest of other-dimensional energy to be able to cause you harm if you are aware of this phenomenon and take measures to protect yourself.

      To drive evil spirits away from influencing your mind or body…… you must practice doing good and only good to please God……evil spirits cannot fellowship or remain anyone who love others and please God by obeying only him…….wow! the bright light is on and the darkness run away and keep away……the light and the darkness can never be one…..light with light is the same …..darkness with darkness is the same……"Stay in the light"

      Just came across this website and am looking forward to exploring.

      I notice a lot of people take offense to what is said in the article above. I have studied the works of Medicine people such as Frank Fools Crow for years. So much of what you say here I have seen and felt with my own senses and have had to figure out on my own as I fight for my own survival and my ability to protect those I love more than anything in the world. If you study the experiences of NDE'rs such as Betty Eadie you see very clearly that these things are a reality. Spirits do get stuck in addiction and need a body to feel what they are hungry for, and attach to others for that purpose.

      Likewise, there are tricksters and angry and dark spirits with an agenda to plunder and steal. Sometimes emotional energy, sometimes the very light of who you are.

      Church does help. The cross does help. Sundance, sweat lodge, etc.. I have tried them all, sometimes desperately and sometimes proactively. Faith is the common thread for it all, and so it is exactly faith that they attack most fervently. And it is very much our own issues that these spirits use as a tool for access to our lives. However, they can and do intensify those issues to open the door further. Dealing with those issues becomes nearly impossible when there is a burdensome spirit standing on your shoulders feeding unhealthy aspects of self and triggering past traumas at moments of vulnerability.

      I find this article to be very informative and as I said, I am looking forward to exploring.

      You must remember that not all evil spirits are demons, some are angry spirits. There are angry spirits that will pose themselves as evil spirits. With both if you need it, you must have support from a church and a priest. If that isn't a possibilty you need a cross with you the time you battle this thing.

      Perhaps people should take responsibility for the effects of drugs and alcohol on them and work to heal their accumulative emotional issues? Claiming it's anything else is not taking full responsibility for yourself in the present moment. Of course, trying to convince any of you would be like trying to crack a walnut with a banana peel.

      Agreed. It is quite challenging to see and confront this dark energy...

      A great hub to be reminded that we can actually be aware of we feel.

      Thanks Scott.

      yes..i agree, these symptoms are true...but what to do with an uninvited quest that is not from me but belongs to other people who yanks my chain and press my buttons on their hosts behalf? can't chase him away from its host if his host is wanting him there, he has then legal right...and what if you can't chase the person away either?

      ...While I agree that people can become possessed, I do not believe those spirits are dead humans. The Bible speaks of the evil spirits being Satan and the rest of the fallen angels. And angels are not human.

      AND......the Lord said that that kind of spirit cannot be cast out of a person except by prayer and fasting. In other words, by a very committed, Spiritual person; a Christian.
