There are very, very few people qualified to get rid of demons. This is usually an area for Catholic priests, shamans and magic workers (not a magician). In the West, science would be the normal way to find and remove a demon, but science doesn’t tend to work well with paranormal phenomena. Paranormal stuff doesn’t follow the scientific method. So, what can you do?
Banishing a Demon by Will Power
It’s tough to find qualified people, so you may have to do it by yourself. How exactly can you do that? We’re talking about a demon, not termites. Well, you do have options.
If the demon lives in your psyche (conscience), you have a stronger position. It takes a great deal of awareness, you can use meditation practices. When you notice the demon, use your will power to force the demon to obey. You can’t be passive: The demon will know when your mental guard is down and it will try to take charge. You can also contact a psychotherapist, skilled in energy work, to help you purge the demon. They’ll teach you visualization techniques and white light energy tactics. Demons hate to struggle with prey and you can drive them out because you mentally attack them before they do it to you.
Taking the Magic Route
Magic isn’t for everyone. It doesn’t immediately work, either. But, it creates a hindrance for the demon. In time, the demon will get sick of you messing with it and leave. Remember, demons hate to fight for their prey.
Natural Magic Solutions
Natural magic deals with the magical powers of earthly, physical substances – like stones, crystals, herbs and water. You use the materials listed below to protect yourself and drive the demon away.
Any of the following:
Directions: Store each in its own airtight jar. Only use one type of incense at a time. Place in a bowl. Light the incense with a match. Use a fan to direct the smoke to the area of the haunting. Repeat as necessary.
Any of the following:
- Cedar wood
Directions: See blessing incense.
Red oil is very good at disrupting the demon’s negative energy and demonic obsession/possession. Take the oil and place a drop on your forehead to disrupt a possession. Place a drop on the back of your neck to prevent demonic obsession.
To make red oil on your own, follow these steps:
- Get 1 cup of fresh (and we mean it – fresh!) St. John’s wort flowers
- Place in a clear glass jar
- Get olive oil
- While stirring, pour olive oil over flowers
- Stop pouring when you have just covered the flowers
- Seal jar
- Place the jar where sunlight will hit it for 2-4 hours a day
- Let the jar stand in that spot for 2-4 months until the solution turn red
- Pour solution through a strainer – to remove the flowers – and collect the oil in a clean and clear glass jar
- Store the red oil jar in a cool, dry place
Note: If the flowers weren’t fresh, then the oil will never turn red.
Use salt to purify a spot and banish demons. Kosher salt or sea salt work well.
Use cold purified water, salt and frankincense ash to make holy water for blessings and purifications. Mix together and consecrate it. Now, the consecration ritual is different for each religion, so please ask your religious leader how to do it.
Flick holy water on a haunted area to help banish the demon or purify the spot. It also works well as a protective barrier. Sprinkle the water in a circle around you to form the barrier. When done, pour the remaining water into the ground, not a sink.
