There is a soul inside every human body which is a creation of the human mind. The soul uses the human body to work out its desires and mental tendencies stored in the human mind. But sometimes, people commit suicide or die for other reasons without having their strong desires fulfilled. People who commit suicide do not die peacefully and such souls often have strong negative tendencies stored up in their minds and they seek another physical body to work out their desires. If they find a person with an unspiritual and weak mind, they try to take possession of that person's body with the result that the weak mind is overpowered by mind of the soul who may have committed suicide. People who do not understand this phenomenon believe that a demon has possessed the person.Hello Everyone,
Bit of a strange question i guess. But i have experience of people being possessed
By dark (absorbs light) criminal (bad intentions) energetic presences and saying
And doing negative things.
I ask the possessed people if they remember saying such things to me like
"I will batter your desire to do good out of you" and the claim to remember
The conversation right up to the moment i perceive them as possessed.
Now i have tried to be logical turning to psychology ideas, perhaps people
Have different parts of their personality that they aren't aware of usually.
But i don't really get psychology either to be honest.
I feel really bad about the situation because i feel like i should take action
With regards to these possessing telepathic beings, but striving to be
A good person and the Bahai suggestion not to pursue psychic phenomena...
What should i be doing? And how should i understand what iam seeing?
Obviously if people could point me towards scripture and the books
They are in so i can investigate the truth this would be very appreciated.appreciate
Obviously a lot of people will just think I'm crazy i guess, but that does not
Actually help me to understand the spirit world. I see a lot of information
Online about Angels, evil spirits, entities, spiritual warfare. . . Etc.
Although it has been incredible to bear witness to this reality, i haven't
Actually intentionally tried to pursue this, as it is not suggested by the faith.
But when i started praying to God this aspect of life just opened up
Accidentally??? Or is it just a side effect of pursuing a relationship
With God? Am i supposed to live on earth with no awareness of
Also i wondered if what we do within the spirit world has any bearing
On planet earth, because in pursuing recovery from being upset about
Certain matters, i don't know if spirits were listening to what i was
Thinking and some kind of spiritual warfare took place? Do you think
God would allow me to process my hurt feelings in private on my own?
I'm a bit worried that i might have accidentally done magic etc.
If i had accidentally engaged in some kind of spiritual warfare do
You think God forgives this?
To be clear i have never purposefully done magic like candles and
Rituals etc, i just believed that you were supposed to process
Your reactions to evil by being aware of your thoughts and feelings
And letting them go, so that you can return to peace. But...
I obviously had unseen company, I'm worried that i might have
Retaliated.... But the spirit world doesn't actually listen to my
Private rant and go off and retaliate??? Does it?
The Baha'i scripture talks of the Concourse on High forming ranks
To protect you and wiping out evil on your behalf? So... It's ok
And part of Good eradicating the darkness?
To be honest with you i make a lot of effort to meet bad with good,
But i probably still need to process my reactions in private on
Occasion, still being susceptible to feeling hurt and occasionally
Angry when treated badly. Perhaps I'm not supposed to be nice
To bad? I see a lot of people reacting with immediate anger
To protect themselves from bad treatment. But i just don't
Want to be human I want to be of Good character of God and
Respond to it with Grace. Are Baha'is at risk of being a doormat?
I literally have one year old babies calling me stupid for letting
Them win a simple card game :/ even babies think I'm stupid
For my niceness!?
So what should i do about people possessed by external telepathic
Evil? I wasn't quite sure what the guardian meant when he said
Possessing evil spirits don't exist, but evil and dark forces can yield
So people ARE being possessed by evil.... ?
Is that external to the person? ??
Are they consenting to being possessed by external evil or are they victims?
What should i do to protect them?
If we are talking about their lower nature(satan) why deny memory of
Doing things? Obviously a lot of people lie when they are bad, but i do
Trust some people who say they have no memory of saying things
Doing things. So if it is their lower nature do i hold them accountable
Regardless? How do you do this if they can't remember their deeds?
What approach do other Baha'is take?
Sorry guys I'm a slow learner! I probably should have known all these
Answers a long time ago.
Any scripture and help greatly appreciated.
Please try to keep the crazy comments to a minimum!
Here is an account of Jesus casting away these tramp souls called demons.
Matthew 8:28-34 says, "When he arrived at the other side in the region of the Gadarenes, two demon-possessed men coming from the tombs met him. They were so violent that no one could pass that way. 'What do you want with us, Son of God?' they shouted. 'Have you come here to torture us before the appointed time?' Some distance from them a large herd of pigs was feeding. The demons begged Jesus, 'If you drive us out, send us into the herd of pigs.' He said to them, 'Go!' So they came out and went into the pigs, and the whole herd rushed down the steep bank into the lake and died in the water. Those tending the pigs ran off, went into the town and reported all this, including what had happened to the demon-possessed men. Then the whole town went out to meet Jesus. And when they saw him, they pleaded with him to leave their region."
The best way to keep your mind strong and healthy is to meditate upon God everyday and grow spiritually. When you manifest spiritual qualities, their inherent strength will protect you because such qualities keep away souls with negative tendencies. As you can see from the incident from the life of Jesus, when the tramp souls saw him coming, they knew his spiritual qualities and strength will torture them and they preferred to leave the human bodies and enter the bodies of pigs.
It is also true that sometimes, we imagine stuff and project it on to other people. People are also prone to all kinds of hallucinations.
