How to Deal with Demons and other Dark Forces – First Steps
(In other words, this is not meant to be an advance training on this topic! Rather, a primer or tip about mindset and basic approach to handling and thinking about this kind of energy).
So many of us are struggling, vulnerable, afraid, angry. Others are triumphant, elated. Being a citizen of the United States of America I can attest that the environment does not feel refined or harmonized! People in other countries may say, “Deal with it! Get over yourselves! It’s much worse in other places!”
That may be true but that doesn’t make it better, and doesn’t mean that we just roll over and accept it and do nothing, either.
Some people are responding with a stance of love no matter what. Other folks on both sides are responding with parroted rhetoric, angry finger pointing on facebook, in their communities, wherever they can.
That seems ridiculous that I even wrote “sides.” Aren’t we “One nation under God, indivisible, with justice and liberty for all?” Aren’t we “We the People”?
That said, we are facing change and we don’t know what that looks like yet. We fear the worst, some of us. We fear that liberties are at risk, our own and those of others we love.
We fear that the President we have just elected is possessed with darkness the likes of which we have not seen in our country at such a grand scale, from our leader, ever. The leader of the “free world.” Oh boy.
With the principle of freedom, justice, liberty for all potentially at risk, those of us who are old souls feel a stirring deep within our bones. Perhaps our memories of persecution that are under the surface of our conscious awareness have been triggered. Perhaps it is the cellular memory from our ancestors that is shaking loose and making it’s way to our awareness.
What is there to do?
The obvious things, like “Get up, Stand up. Stand up for your rights.” Get involved in a way that resonates for you. We are all saying and feeling the same things here.
I also wrote something on facebook about holding a higher vision, about the possibility that the mantle of the Presidency is actually stronger than the individual and that maybe, just maybe, the mantle is more powerful than the man?
Anything is possible.
But what if our fears are justified? What if this man in charge is run by forces that we suspect and that could wreck havoc in our lives, our communities and globally?
If that is what we are facing in the coming years, on the off chance (? is it an off chance?) I thought I’d share this. Personally, I have had a lot of experience with darkness, with demonic forces that possess and overtake free will. Scary stuff.
Maybe you’ve figured this out too or another strategy that works just as well. But in case you haven’t had this experience yet in this lifetime, or if you have and you haven’t figured it out yet, here’s my take on it.
Reclaiming my own authentic power, my body, my life force has been a life-long journey for me, and along the way I’ve learned a lot about what does and doesn’t work in the face of such a dark force. Instinct, in my experience, often leads us in the wrong direction. It took me 48 years to override my own instincts in this department. I have had the best teachers (you know what I mean), and I’m still working on it.
First, what not to do.
It is not in my experience powerful to go over to the perpetrator’s side with your mind and emotions, pay attention to him, threaten him or her or try to push him out to “protect” yourself.
Try reasoning with someone like this and see where it gets you. Reasoning on a base of fear, pleading, is like catnip for a demon.
You can’t beg for mercy. You can try, but this just incites a demon or the person who the demon is running.
You can’t point out the suffering the demon is causing either. If you do, watch it smile! It already knows, that is it’s whole reason for being!
That stuff just feeds the dynamic. It is what the darkness loves. It feeds on fear. It feeds on your light. So don’t give your energy there. That is what it wants. It will use your power and your energy to feed its own purpose. It will get stronger. You will get weaker.
The thing is, when you are a rational, kind and loving being, these are the instinctual things to do. These are the things that might work with a rational being. Reasoning. Empathy. Creating resonance through story.
Unfortunately, a demon doesn’t care, and someone who is possessed by a demon doesn’t have empathy.
Or does this all sound too Sci-Fi-Fantasy-Harry-Potter-Meets-Voldemort for you? Sometimes fact is stranger than fiction and when we read these books we resonate with them for a reason. Just sayin’. You don’t have to agree or believe me.
I believe in fighting for what is right, for human rights. And I am not saying that all there is to do is to center yourself and fill up with your own light and power. My purpose is not about leading or teaching about fighting for human rights or activism on that level, you can figure that part out on your own, you can lead a movement or join a movement. Go for it. What I am able to support you with is the place from which you lead, the place from which you “fight”.
My understanding is that demons are in fact a part of the celestial team. Did you read my post on the Devil? Don’t be scared. Go read it.
They are here to help us grow. They find their way into our experience personally, and globally, through the cracks of our integrity, honor, humility, and more. They scan for our weakness, for the places we came to fortify on our soul’s journey. They are given divine assignments, just like the angels. They are here to make us stronger, in ways we want to be stronger.
Which leads me to, what do you do?
One of the best defenses when you are facing a demon, or someone being run by a demon, is to fill yourself with authentic power.
It’s not the only thing, but it’s a key.
Fill Yourself with Your Own Soul’s Light and Authentic Power
In my experience this is what seems to be the only thing that does work when you are dealing with demons, sociopaths and other dark forces who threaten to invade your rights. You must fortify your strength.
To me this is the task at hand. Each of us is being called into our place, our role, and we must overcome the swirl of emotions and unrefined energy that is around us to root stably as our Self so that we can lead from our authentic power. We must do this.
You have to do this for yourself but we can stand together, each as sovereign. We can help hold a space for one another to find this inside of ourselves.
If you are actually under psychic attack, try this:
- Call in Archangel Michael and ask for his help
- Ask to be connected with/as your Soul and Greater Consciousness
- Pull all of your energy into your core and fill your boundaries fully from the inside out
- Take your attention off of the perpetrator fully.
- Keep bringing your soul’s light fully into your matter and filling your boundaries with that.
- Get and stay in your center.
- Resource yourself with others who can hold this for and with you until you can hold it for yourself.
I suspect that if we are going to face something BIG then we are going to have to do this together and create a strong gridwork together of this strength so that we all have a place to resource.
If we can as individuals not get pulled out of our centers into emotional reactivity, which ultimately feeds the unhealthy dynamic, but rather create a stable sovereign stance and then join together creating a gridwork and a paradigm of sovereign community strength and authentic power that respects and honors each individual member, that is stronger because of the diversity of our energy signatures, we can make a fabric of reality that is powerful and resilient, like a bulletproof vest.
Our voices and our action will be most effective and powerful if they come from this place of wholeness.
