Ghost or Demon? How can you tell? It’s really hard sometimes because some demons do not instantly manifest in a malicious nature right away. Sometimes, they are merely curious. Other times they are simply passing through. But in some rare, unfortunate cases, they are “stalking their prey.” It can be very hard to tell if a ghost is a demon just playing with you to lower your guard and defenses. Here are some ways to tell if an entity or spirit or haunting is a ghost or a demon…
Method #1 Communication Manifestations
Identify a communication point…be it EVP (electronic voice phenomena), a ouija board, automatic writing, or even a magic 8 ball…anything that is receiving interaction from the entity in question. Even a psychic or medium will work. Cast a magick circle bringing your communication point into the circle with you. Invite friendly forces and energies access to your circle. Use the communication point within the circle. If you still receive communication it does not necessarily mean it is not a demon, but it rules out weaker demons. Cast your circle a couple more times, making it a triple cast circle and try the communication point again. If you are no longer getting communication, it was a stronger demon, and that is not good.
Method #2 Fruit Spoiling
Demons can spoil fruit, as it possesses powerful life-sustaining energy…and demons are attracted to LIFEFORCE and suck it dry of everything it is worth! Placing a bowl full of freshly cut fruit out and observing how quickly it decays will help rule out a demon. If a demon is present, the fruit will decay nearly 4-5 times as fast as usual. Ghosts are not interested in sucking lifeforce out of any person nor fruit.
Method #3 Mirror Method
The myth and fable of “Bloody Mary” partly originated from the ability of an evil spirit, or a demon, to access the real world by crossing through a mirror. The demon requires a willing participant staring into the mirror to cross through into our world and will usually take possession of the participant. A mirror, however, can still be used to determine if evils is haunting you or an area. Enter a dark room, such as a bathroom, close out all the lights. You must be alone. Star into the mirror until your eyes adjust, close enough to stare into your own eyes. Ask your own reflection if any evil spirits or demons are present and if so to make themselves known. This does not invite them to take possession of you or enter your world, it only forces them to make an energy wave…one which you will feel in the gut of your soul if it is a demon.
What to do if you are being haunted or harassed by a Demon
Seek help for cleansing and banishing the demon ASAP. You cannot usually battle a demon yourself and I do not mean that as an insult, I mean literally your energy will not be strong enough to battle a demon yourself as you will have your energy constantly siphoned from the demon, lowering the strength and potency present within the aura, making your spell weaker. It must be someone else who gets rid of the demon. Experienced spell casters and covens will agree.
What not to do if you are being possessed, someone you know is being possessed or there is a demon haunting your home or residence
Do not try to take on the demon by yourself. Demons feed off life force and if you do not know what you are doing, you will only make it stronger. It will feed off of your attempts to destroy it and curve you a fate worse than if you would have just left it alone. Demons can rampage through marriages, relationships, health, luck, careers and leave all sorts of carnage. Getting help immediately is priority #1.
