I’ve had a lot of personal encounters with the good, the bad, and the ugly. What I’m saying here comes from first-hand experience as well as anecdotal evidence from others, so here it goes, for whatever it’s worth.
You may wonder how this fits into the Law of Attraction topic, but in my opinion, it's a very important part of manifestation and the nature of reality. As they say, to be forewarned means to be forearmed.
I think that evil spirits benefit from the fact that most people don’t believe they exist.
They can show up in the shape of human beings or otherworldly entities. They have minions everywhere. They will hit on your weaknesses and try to worm their way into your energy field.
In our scientifically enlightened day and age, even many Christians don’t believe in Hell, Satan, demons, etc. anymore. They think it’s all some kind of metaphor for the evil residing in the human soul.
That is incorrect.
I know for a fact that true Evil with a capital E (I call it the “Dark Side”) exists. I’ve seen it.
Over the years, I had some quite unpleasant encounters… at times due to my own stupidity… at other times because once you try to “wake up” and raise your vibration, you become a beacon in the night, so to speak, and evil will make an active attempt to seek you out and turn you.
Here’s the good news: The Dark Side can’t force you to join it. It has only three ways to make that happen:
I’ve had some very close calls in my life, and I thank the Lord and my Guardian Angels that they’ve been protecting me from the Dark Side’s manipulations.
So, let’s look at all three of the categories.
1.Scaring the living crap out of you and thus weakening you.
I experienced direct attacks on me in two hauntings that were about seven years apart.
The first one started via me stupidly making a Ouija board-type device and trying to “communicate with the dead.”
This was followed by a month-long haunting that left me half-crazed and sleep deprived. It ended with the entity manifesting in the form of a dark cloud in my apartment and attacking my solar plexus chakra.
In another experience, a guy who appeared to be extremely friendly and helpful kept warning me of a woman who was a competitor of sorts. He kept insisting that she was an evil witch and wanted to do me harm. She did look kind of witchy and was the jealous type and not very nice, so I believed him.
After keeping at it for weeks—including telling me how to protect myself from her—he offered “to do something about her” for me.
I realized later on that he, not she, was actually the witch. If I had agreed, out of fear, and let him harm this woman on my behalf, the Dark Side would have won.
This same guy once dropped his mask while I was hanging out with him. It was as if he was overtaken by another entity—there was literally another face superimposed on his own—and he said in a different voice: “And there’s a commitment to be made… it’s only a small commitment, but once you make it, you can have anything you want.”
This, by the way, is the Dark Side’s line: You can have anything you want. If you ever hear anyone say this to you, in whatever context, turn and run the other way as fast as you can.
If you fall for it, you may have taken the first step on a downward spiral from which there’s no coming back.
Which brings me to item #2…
2. Tempting you with things you really, really want.
When I lived in Sedona, my greatest wish was to be able to stay in the US forever.
The very day a rather nasty immigration lawyer told me that my chances were practically nil to make that happen, I met a guy at the local brewery.
He was a really strange type, much older than me, with two different-colored eyes, but back then, I met strange people all the time, so what was new?
He said he felt we knew each other from a past life, that he’d been waiting for me his entire life, and that he’d be willing to marry me. He even gifted me money to have my car repaired.
Even though he creeped me out, out of sheer desperation I agreed to at least get to know each other better and “see where it would lead.”
It’s a long story, but in a nutshell, I ended up spending some time with him, which culminated in a day trip to Flagstaff with him to meet some of his friends. At that point, I was already determined to blow him off because he annoyed the hell out of me.
On that trip, though, it got much worse. It turned out that…
a) he was completely insane
b) he had a loaded gun in the car
c) he was trying to bind me to him via some bewitched amulet
d) his friends were a bunch of satanists whom we were going to have a BBQ with.
I felt sick to my stomach and like I was literally in danger of losing my soul. I prayed and prayed and prayed for the Great Spirit and my Angels to save me… and they did. They actually talked to me on that occasion, telling me what to do to get out of this situation alive and in one piece.
It wasn’t all in my head, either: I later heard from a friend that this guy had physically and emotionally abused and psychologically broken at least one other woman, to the point that—previously a bubbly personality—she ended up near-catatonic and had to be admitted in a mental ward.
After this experience, realizing what could have happened, I vowed to only get married for love, not for convenience. Less than a year later, I met my (now ex-) husband and we were married for 15 years, most of the time quite happily.
3. Taking advantage of you being a moron.
In Sedona, I knew loads of “spiritual seekers” and “lightworkers” who tried their hands at channeling, raising their vibration, communicating with their spirit guides, etc…. but never even considered to protect themselves or question where their "ethereal contacts" were coming from.
They were so gullible that when they made contact with a spirit claiming it was the Enlightened Master of the Eternal Lodge of Holy Canolies, they’d just take its word for it and happily offered to be a channel (i.e., letting the entity use their body, which I don’t recommend for anyone to ever, ever do).
Even “famous entities” like Seth or Ramtha may not be as benevolent as they seemed. Consider that they occupied the bodies of their channels for their entire lives after first contact.
So was the symbiotic relationship really about improving the world, or was it a convenient way for these entities to enjoy fun times in a physical body?
Reportedly, Seth liked to drink red wine and smoke the occasional cigar… a warning sign that points to a hungry ghost, i.e., an entity who craves the physical pleasures that its disembodied nature normally denies it.
And Ramtha… I once attended a live session with J.Z. Knight and Ramtha, and when she started channeling him, the atmosphere became so thick and dark and toxic that I had to leave the room.
I can’t even begin to tell you how stupid it is to willingly hand over the use of your body to some spirit you know nothing about. Even if it tells you it’s your beloved granny, these things lie all the time. Trust nothing you hear from them.
As a cautionary tale on channeling, I recommend the book The Siren Call of Hungry Ghosts by Joe Fisher. The author, by the way, died very young. Until the end, he was convinced that the channeled entities were hunting him down and trying to kill him. He ended up “accidentally” falling off a cliff. Oops. (Warning: This is not for the tender-hearted.)
Of course, these three categories of evil infiltration could probably be broadened, but I think they’re super important to know about.
Once you’re aware, you can arm yourself psychologically, emotionally, and spiritually, and avoid falling into the Dark Side’s traps.
I wish you all the best in staying on the “right-handed path.”
