How To Protect Yourself, Home, Property From Evil
I am adding an additional post on Deliverance and Exorcism to my blog to cover additional items not covered in this post. Please see Deliverance and Exorcism 2. I also have a website that goes into depth about this subject. http://www.getridofghosts.com Please feel free to use it whenever you wish. All instructions are there including new ones that are not on this blog.
NOTE: I have been asked if these instructions will work for all people regardless or their religion or faith. The answer is “Yes!” God created all and He will protect all. I know these instructions are based in Christian mores, but that’s because they work. Growing up I studied everything trying to understand how to fight spiritual battles. I tried everything I read. When those things like sage, cedar, etc. did work, it was, at the very most, only a temporary fix. All went back to where it was before using them.
Raised in a Protestant Church that did not believe in exorcism, I didn’t even realize what God was capable of until I began to attend other churches and study their theology. I dedicated my life to learning how to defeat the devil in all forms, and this post is the first I’ve ever written about the methods I have used for 35 years. These methods work. They work the first time, and the last time. They work every time. But you must also not re-invite the dark entities into your life. And if possible, sometimes, you may have to move to another location, even though you have followed instructions to the letter. There are places in this world that are portals to evil. Established many years, millenia, who knows when, ago. Places that only God can deal with in the long run. But these methods will help you get things under control until you can pack up and leave.
I am a Catholic layman who is approved to work in the field of exorcism by the Catholic Church as well as many Protestant churches, including Spirit-Filled Evangelistic and Pentecostal churches. I am not ordained and therefore can only assist with ‘personal’ exorcisms, but I am called in to analyze and evaluate situations of preternatural activity, and render my opinion of whether or not demonic or Satanic activity is actually present. I base this assessment on science, knowledge of doctrine, theology and years of study of the preternatural and occult history, including religions not based in Christian mores.
I am authorized to bind and remove cursed or infested objects, clear and bless homes, buildings, people or property, depending on the authority given me by a legally and properly ordained Priest, Pastor or Bishop of a recognized Christian church to act on their behalf. This authorization is called “Extraordinary Privilege” and given when the location or immediacy of action is sometimes outside the ability of an ordained pastor to respond.
Because in past years and even today in some areas there have been/are very few exorcists available compared to the true number needed in many areas of the world, it has been necessary for many Christian churches to ask for help from qualified laymen of good repute to assist in these matters. I take each request made of me very seriously and have dedicated nearly 35 years of my life to spiritual warfare for the glory of God.
I am writing down this information which I have never before shared publicly (with approval) because I feel that the need is great, the knowledge to protect oneself, family and property not always available to everyone, and the preternatural infestation and oppression of today’s world overwhelming and destructive to many. Whether you are Catholic or not, what I have to say here is approved for use for all Christians, and people who are not Christian, everywhere and is Gospel based knowledge taken from the writings of the early church fathers who wrote the first rites of exorcism and dealt with all questions of preternatural interference in the lives of the Christian community.
I remember the shock and awe my inner self felt as I watched God work through me in Juarez, Mexico, in the nineties; my most dangerous case to date. His power would simply drop over me as I surrendered all to Him and I felt like I was watching myself as though I were a third person behind a curtain of protection. My mind would shake with fear in my hiding place inside my head, as I watched my body, heart, spirit and soul united with the Holy Spirit, stand without fear and command the evil to depart, to leave and never come back, Cleansing, Binding and Sealing objects, homes, property and people within the parameters of the authority given to me to do so. Not being an actual exorcist, since I am not ordained, I have had to follow God’s instructions implicitly, not deviating one iota from the instructions He has painstakingly taught me over time, as well as specific information applicable to particular situations, given just before I would leave to do the work.
My spirit is always in constant prayer and communion with Him until each day’s work is complete and I can combine my weak human mind once again with the rest of me, eat dinner and go to bed. However, I never take off my protective armor of God when working. Blessed Sacramentals (medals of Saints, cross or crucifix that have been properly blessed by a priest) stay on my body constantly because the attacks can come at any time, and often come at night, or any time when my mind is relaxed and not paying attention. I got to the point years ago where I could literally bind the evil in Latin even in my dreams while sound asleep. I would ‘know’ instantly, thanks to the awareness of the Holy Spirit, that I needed to ‘pay attention’ and go to work, even in the deepest REM sleep. That’s something the Lord taught me how to do at least 30 years ago or more…and I have always been very thankful for His wisdom and patience.
For a Christian in today’s world, we are literally bombarded with preternatural attacks on a constant basis, yet we cannot be hypervigilant to the point where we lose our ability to reason and act with some objectivity and discernment. I always tell the people I work with “Not everything is an attack…step back, get a different perspective and pray for knowledge and wisdom before you scare yourself silly and lose all comprehension of reality.” The nature of this work is that you really need to take a ‘sanity’ check on a regular basis. I have a support team that I work with who constantly stand guard over my state of mind and physical health, keeping me balanced and whole, and able to do the Lord’s work when necessary.
The demonic feeds on excess emotion, fear, anger, any negative emotion, so if you are in a situation where things are happening constantly and you are fearful, do not take it out on each other with sarcasm, blaming or allow yourself to become angry at those you love around you. Demons love to isolate people through emotion and leave them desperate and alone. This is why I put this information up online and even more of it on my website http://www.getridofghosts.com . You are not alone. Please contact me if you don’t know what is happening and simply want a (free) clear perspective or assistance to deal with your situation.
The attacks I see today “seem” to come in varying degrees of intensity and the entities responsible are able to change tactics quicker and hide their identity better than they were able to years ago. That said, I’m not sure if my impression is actually true or simply what the entities want me to believe. Perhaps it’s a bit of each. Lately, even the ‘Saint’ candles from the grocery store I normally like to burn in my house are made cheaper and end up smoking up the room, instead of being a quiet reflection of steady connection with me and the Lord. I end up blowing them out, and am left feeling a bit ‘lost in the darkness’. Since I like to have a blessed candle burning at all times, I have to buy the expensive ones at the religious store and have them blessed as those burn cleanly and don’t poison the air with lead wicks or bad wax. I’m sure many of you have experienced the same thing. Soot and smell as the sellers really don’t care what they put in those jars. So even the holy candle quandary is something of an attack.
So many of us are feeling what we can only describe as an escalation in the pulse of evil, appearance of demonic activity and an increased feeling of imminent danger. Were it not for the horrendous world affairs of today, perhaps we would not give these things so much attention, but we see way too much negativity building around us globally, and also, to our horror, within the United States as well. I believe it is the latter situation that has us all ‘on guard’ and constantly worried about today and tomorrow. Striking at our finances, the demonic activity means to undermine our constancy of well-being, threatening the loss of our home, food, jobs and our way of life to throw us off balance and keep us wound up in fear.
As a person who sometimes works with exorcism, let me simply say that when the devil really wants something, he will throw as much as possible at you at one time to keep you from fruitful personal prayer. The hurried and sometimes panicked “Oh Lord help me” prayer is not prayer that sustains or strengthens. It is ok in an emergency situation, but used by itself on a constant basis, it’s the kind of prayer that can actually weaken us. Why is this so? Because by praying in that way, we are affirming (in our own minds) that we are victims. That we have no power over our circumstances, and sometimes it’s even an angry prayer, throwing our situation up to God as though, somehow, He is responsible for our situation…and that by not acting earlier, He has left us in this impossible situation where we might well be pulverized by exterior forces unless He comes immediately to the rescue.
Our problem is not that we shy away from helping others ‘hear’, ‘see’ or ‘feel’ God working through us, our problem in today’s world is listening or watching for Him ourselves. We get so caught up in our daily grind of duties, worry, fear, anger, yearnings for happier times, grief at the loss of those who used to guide and protect us, that we just shut down and shield our ears and eyes from what we see and hear around us to the point that we also shut God off from our awareness. We get so confused, we think He is not paying attention or listening to us, not answering or working in our lives to fulfill His promises that we read in scripture or believe in our heart to be what He wants for us.
We remember the Sermon on the Mount and Jesus saying, “Blessed be the Peacemaker”, or the Meek, and right away our latest rant on email, Facebook or Twitter jumps into our head. We think of the 23rd Psalm, “I shall fear no evil, for thou are with me” and think, “Cruddo, I’ve been terrified all morning and haven’t heard a single word from God, not even a little sign of hope…just more bills and less money to pay them with than we expected this paycheck”. And thinking of our failings and sins, we collapse a bit inside feeling completely depleted of energy and life force, and just fall asleep in the Barca Lounger with our arm over our eyes, hoping and praying that no one calls, even loved ones, as we’re just too depressed to deal with anything or anyone at all, and in fact, might even be a bit rude or dismissive if someone does call. Then we’re even more disgusted with ourselves than before. A horrible chain of events is possible at this point.
The devil loves it when we get like this…and you know it’s him when the word “I” precedes your every waking thought. “I am upset”, “I’m worried”, “I’m tired”, “I’m just in a mood”…I , I , I. That’s the devil’s favorite word and a sure sign he’s throwing thoughts at your subconscious, standing outside your body barking like a maniacal dog. If you’re a Christian, you can’t be taken over or possessed without agreeing to it, so they do the next best thing, they project thoughts into your head until you fall over dismal and alone, feeling abandoned, hurt and angry at God, life and especially yourself. They want you to give up and say, “I have nothing to live for, it’s all over, it’s all lost.” and then they swoop in and really attack…and what happens? You stand a good chance of making the evening news, either publicly causing a problem or you become ‘family news’ because of your mental state and their thoughts of ‘what do we do now?’.
Please don’t try to fight ‘fire with fire’…magic or ritual does not help you, it only makes things worse. I hear many people who say things like, get a witch to help you, or a ‘strong man’ to command the evil out. That is just silly and self defeating. Satan cannot throw himself out and he loves the ‘new age’ approach to ‘personal power’. The huge amount of interest in ghost hunting, talking to ghosts or the ‘dead’ lead many people into conversing with demons who then ‘bond’ with the person and truly serious problems begin. They will draw you in any way they can, pretend to be anyone or anything to get you to ‘talk’ to them or believe you are helping an earthbound ghost. Just going to a haunted location without the proper protection can draw them to you and they will follow you home.
How do you deal with this stuff? You attack back. But here’s how.
You find deliverance prayers, either online or in a book. You go to a Catholic Church and get some holy water to clear yourself and your home. Protestant or not, use it. Water has been used for exorcism in every baptism since Christ died. It’s not a “Catholic” thing, it’s a Christian thing. Get some salt, any kind of white salt. God used it all through the Old Testament and New. Get some olive oil, pray a blessing over it or buy anointing oil if you’re Protestant. Ask your pastor or minister to bless it if you wish, or, if you’re Catholic, ask your Priest to bless your water, oil and salt with an Exorcism blessing (the most powerful of all). Sprinkle a few grains of salt in every corner of every room in your home. (If you vacuum it up while cleaning, just reapply as you’re vacuuming. Sprinkle or spray Holy Water on every wall, floor and ceiling (including closets and baths) in your home, and use blessed oil to seal your home and yourself with the sign of the cross on the outside and inside of each door and in the center of your own forehead.
(A quick note about “Exorcised” water, oil and salt. Why is it so powerful? Because it cannot be used in any other way and the formal blessing it holds is anathema to negative spirits or demons. Regular or even ordinarily blessed or anointed water, salt and oil have been used in rituals by many “folk or mixture” religions, some not so pure of intention, for many centuries. Exorcised oil, water and salt cannot be used by these religions or for any use other than the exorcism of curses, negative energy or demonic entities. This is why I counsel people to use Exorcised water, oil and salt.)
I use water and oil to bless the top of my head, my ears, my eyelids, my nose, my mouth, the nape of my neck where the skull meets the neck, the base of the spine, my navel area, both hands and both feet. This clears all influence and allows me to think, see and hear clearly. Then I say a deliverance prayer. I say this every day, at least one short prayer. If they’re short, it’s easy to do quickly. Sprinkle blessed salt in your car, put some in your purse or wallet, even a few grains in your right pocket will help. Carry blessed salt with you to keep you safe all day long.
You don’t need to cleanse your home every day. But using a spray bottle to do one quick spray of Holy Water in each room and closet really helps to keep your home free of negative energies. You can, of course, thoroughly reapply throughout the house if you notice activity picking up, and if that happens, use exorcised water, oil and salt.
Oil doesn’t dissipate, salt does not change chemical nature (used like this) and neither does water. The one personal thing I do every day is reapply the Holy Water or blessed oil to my forehead after a shower. Then blot most of it off. That’s it. And you’re blocking all satanic input and the traveling demon show. No more constant influx of traffic in and about your mind, body, home, vehicle or even your office.
For your property, if, in your situation, there has been witchcraft involved, back it off first by sprinkling Holy Water and Blessed salt counterclockwise around your property line. Make the sign of the cross on your sidewalk or on the ground (put a small stake to tell you where you began if on bare ground) and proceed around the property ending where you began by completing the barrier ‘crossing the cross’ so that it is complete and firm. Then begin again, this time taking the Holy Water and Blessed salt clockwise until you again seal the boundary line. It is important to lay this barrier as all inside the barrier will be kept clear of influence by negative entities. If there is no witchcraft involved, simply do this one time clockwise. You may have to reapply from time to time if the salt is washed away.
Now you might think, that’s raving mad, just superstitious and silly. I say to you, “If water, oil and salt doesn’t work, then why did the 12 Tribes of Israel, Jesus and the Apostles use it?” Because the Word of God is eternal. It worked then, it works now. Try it. You’ll see. Things will drastically improve in your life. Your health, both mental and physical, and even the behavior and mood of those around you will get better, even those on drugs or alcohol who are particularly helped by the deliverance prayers.
Remember, anyone can do this. It does not matter what faith you practice or even if you believe at all. This is a gift from God for all mankind. If you need help, just do this. You will find immediate relief. And it will NOT make things worse. Truly. It is the only thing I know that does not worsen the situation, but gives you clarity and freedom instead.
The deliverance prayers are very powerful and you will see that they begin to change everything in your life for the better and the process builds momentum over time. If you stop saying the prayers, things will begin to deteriorate. Not all at once, so if you begin again, you will regain lost ground. In today’s world, I would not stop for even one day. The world has too much momentum of it’s own, so you have to keep your prayers consistent. By using a short prayer, God will keep it all at bay and your efforts will be blessed and multiplied.
Here are two prayers. One is Catholic based, the other is one that can be used by any Christian or even any faith (or not) of any denomination.
CATHOLIC PRAYER FOR DELIVERANCE
My Lord, You are all powerful, You are God, You are Father. We beg You through the intercession and help of the archangels Michael, Raphael, and Gabriel, for the deliverance of our brothers and sisters who are enslaved by the evil one. All saints of heaven, come to our aid.
From anxiety, sadness, and obsessions, We beg You: Free us, O Lord. From hatred, fornication, envy, We beg You: Free us, O Lord. From thoughts of jealousy, rage, and death. We beg You: Free us, O Lord. From every thought of suicide and abortion. We beg You: Free us, O Lord. From every form of sinful sexuality. We beg You: Free us, O Lord. From every division in our family, and every harmful friendship. We beg You: Free us, O Lord. From every sort of spell, malefice, witchcraft, and every form of the occult. We beg You: Free us, O Lord.
Lord, You Who said, “I leave you peace, my peace I give you,” grant that, through the intercession of the Virgin Mary, we may be liberated from every evil spell and enjoy Your peace always. In the Name of Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.”
GENERAL DELIVERANCE PRAYER
In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, by the power of his cross, his blood and his resurrection, I bind you Satan, the spirits, powers and forces of darkness, the nether world, and the evil forces of nature.
I take authority over all curses, hexes, demonic activity, and spells directed against me, my relationships, ministry, airspace, finances, and the work of my hands; and I break them by the power and authority of the risen Lord Jesus Christ. I bind all demonic interaction, interplay, and communications between spirits sent against me, and send them directly to Jesus Christ for him to deal with as he wills.
I ask forgiveness for, and denounce all negative inner vows that I have made with the enemy, and ask that Jesus Christ release me from these vows and from any bondage they may have held in me. I claim the shed blood of Jesus Christ, the Son of the living God, over every aspect of my life for my protection. I pray all these things in the precious name of my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Amen.
These prayers and more are found here:
My hope is that this blog entry and these prayers will help those of you have been led here by the Holy Spirit.
I use this blessing as I make the sign of the cross, wherever and whenever I make it with Holy Water, Oil or Salt.
In nomine Patris+ et Filii+ et Spiritus Sancti+. Amen
(In the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit)
My personal email is on the side panel of this blog. I put it there for you. If you need help or if you want my assistance, please email me. Don’t bother spamming or send hateful emails. I will simply block you. Then when what prompted you to spam me begins to hurt or frighten you severely, you will not be able to contact me. This would be a tragedy I would not wish on anyone. You may think it’s your idea to do such things, but I tell you it is not and I know this for a fact.
This is a continuation of blog on Deliverance and Exorcism.
It will cover a few things not mentioned in the first post.
Handling Cursed or Infested Items.
First and most important rule!! Never break, burn or smash items you think may be cursed or infested!! “If you have a glass of water and break it, the water goes everywhere.” so the spirit can flow towards you if the object is mishandled. Objects can become containers, so even if it’s just a piece of paper with a curse on it. BURY IT OR WEIGHT IT AND DROP INTO MOVING WATER (LIKE A DEEP RIVER) DO NOT TEAR OR BURN.
If you are having a problem with strange unsettling calls or your phone rings, even if is not plugged in, or…you answer and strange sounds or voices issue from your phones…take these steps.
Note: When blessing objects or even yourself, apply the oil or water to your thumb. Do not spray or pour. Electrical shock or even in some cases fire can result from spraying or pouring liquid onto electrical items or items that are near electrical plugs or equipment. Use scotch or other tape to hold salt onto item. Place the salt on the tape first, then secure to the item.
1. Bless all the phone lines coming into the house and those that proceed to each phone. If you have remote phones, bless the line to the base as well as the electrical cord (not near the outlet but further down the cord to prevent shock). Use Holy Water and Blessed Oil to do this, making the sign of the cross on each cord or plug in as well as your phones themselves. Say the blessing ‘In the name of the Father+, the Son+ and the Holy Spirit+ each time you make the sign of the cross with the water and oil. You may also put a few grains of salt under the base or on a piece of scotch tape and tape it to the base. Always ‘clear’ your ear and forehead with some Holy Water after getting such calls and also use a bit of blessed oil to ‘seal’ your ears from further abuse.
2. You may also use this technique to clear your television sets or other electronics in your home that are being used as conduits for spirit voices.
Many times entities or spirits will attach themselves to shiny objects. Mirrors, shiny silver, anything that reflects light. They realize your eyes are drawn to sparkle or reflections. Use Holy Water to clear with the blessing listed above, and apply blessed oil directly to the glass on the mirror to seal these objects from further infestation. Sometimes you may have to actually cover and remove a mirror from your home. Do not break it or destroy it in the process. Take it off your property completely and bury it if possible. It must be covered with white cloth if you are going to destroy it, but even then, that is not a good idea, and in fact may result in the spirit latching onto you.
Cursed or Infested Objects of Any Kind:
To RID yourself of a cursed or infested object, (hopefully it is small) get a white garbage bag and wearing gloves, place it inside. Tie the bag shut using string, cord or thread, wrapping the cord and tying a knot each time for a total of three wraps and three knots, making the sign of the cross over each knot and saying the blessing. Then make the sign of the cross on the outside of the bag with blessed oil and bury the bag off your property. After filling the hole, sprinkle the ground with Holy Water. “A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.” – Ecclesiastes 4:12 By wrapping the cord three times around the bag and knotting three times, it makes a very strong bond to bind the evil inside the bag. In this case I view the “three” as the Trinity as did Saint Patrick of Ireland.
If the object is large, such as a dresser, bookcase or piano, it is best to take it off your property, carefully dismantle the item and bury the pieces together in a hole, first anointing the item pieces by spraying them with Holy Water, then covering the hole with dirt and topping the dirt with more Holy Water. Do NOT keep any piece from the item for any reason. IF you cannot dismantle the item, bless it with blessed water and oil and take it to a junkyard or dump and use some paint to write “cursed” on it. You cannot control everything about how all this stuff goes. Just do the best you can. But do not just abandon it alongside the road somewhere. Every time you or anyone else goes down that road you could be subject to attack.
Items of Antiquity: (Museum or other valuable items)
Bag and knot them if small, or, if large, simply donate them whole without spraying water or oil on them, to a local public museum. Once they reach the museum and are taken out of the bag, whatever spirit or entity or curse attached to the object will simply return to the place or land from which it originated. A museum is pubic domain and being such, there is no particular person that takes personal ownership over the contents.
I hope this information will help all of you. I will continue to add to this blog as I organize my notes.
