Possession is apparently nine tenths of the law. So in that respect, anybody who finds themselves at the mercy of a parasitic demon that’s intent on dragging their poor defenceless soul off to the nearest underground car park, can relax safely in the knowledge that you at least have a 10% chance of reclaiming your rightful status.

Of course, a procession of priests, witch-doctors and new-age social workers may hinder your defence by throwing various shop-bought artefacts at you in an attempt to cleanse your demonic soul, but nevertheless there is still a good chance that you can break free from this hellish nightmare before your alarm clock reminds you that you really shouldn’t watch late night horror movies on an empty stomach!

Demon possession is a topic that was invented by religious fanatics in an attempt to justify their madness. In truth, it does not exist. In fact, it’s downright impossible! Let’s face it – if you were being terrorised by a spirit person calling himself Donald from Stockport, would you feel as wet in the trouser seat department? Not unless you’ve been to Stockport recently! Negative energies will always try and extract fear from you – that’s how they feed themselves. And announcing to the world that you are in fact Beelzebub, himself, tends to send shivers down even the frostiest of spinal columns.

There are numerous reports of children in Third World countries being slaughtered due to the primitive belief that they were possessed by evil spirits. This is a terrifying statistic far worse than anything Stephen King could ever conjure up. At times, real life can be so much more horrific than anything that’s manifested from our dreams.

So what’s the truth? Are these children just suffering from bad dreams? Or is there something sinister behind their strange behaviour? The answer is really very simple, yet at the same time extremely complex to comprehend. We have all lived numerous lives in varying times of barbarity and we have all died horribly, and, on occasion, killed horribly too. Do you really think for one moment that those hideous memories could be erased completely from our minds when we reincarnate? And what if Donald from Doncaster (he’s just moved house!) should try to influence your thought pattern after a hard day at the office? Could this negative energy combine with all those stored memories that you have from a previous life that still arduously tortures your soul?

Consider this example – if you lived in a household where its occupants were always at each other’s throats, would this negative lifestyle affect you any differently than if you lived in a household that always exuded positive energy? In most cases, the answer would have to be ‘yes’. We can’t help but feel empathy towards any person and eventually their lifestyle starts to affect our own emotions in a similar fashion. However, we could never be completely possessed by their actions or thoughts, no matter how much influence they had over us. And it’s the exact same with spirit people who enter our thoughts.

The important thing to remember here is that this combination of negative energy can’t be solely attributed to a third party. Otherwise, there would be millions of us jumping out of our windows in despair whenever EastEnders came on! We are all responsible for how we live and how this affects others. And we will be held solely responsible for these actions whenever we return to the spirit dimension.

There is no doubt that powerful spirit energies can influence our lives if we so let them. But, they cannot control our lives. We must also remember that our past memories are there to remind us of how we overcame adversity and how we have learned to appreciate the finer qualities of soul integration. And, if we should suddenly slip back into a situation where negativity starts to dictate our lifestyle, then we will always possess the ability to change how we feel.

WE are always in control of OURSELVES - that is a given Universal Law. You could say that possession is nine tenths of this Universal Law – but you are always the one in control.

Don’t have nightmares – sleep well…
