How to Deal with Demons and other Dark Forces

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.

Make sense?

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.

  1. 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:

  1. Call in Archangel Michael and ask for his help
  2. Ask to be connected with/as your Soul and Greater Consciousness
  3. Pull all of your energy into your core and fill your boundaries fully from the inside out
  4. Take your attention off of the perpetrator fully.
  5. Keep bringing your soul’s light fully into your matter and filling your boundaries with that.
  6. Get and stay in your center.
  7. 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.

My vision:

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.


Are you afraid of the Devil?

Why are we so afraid of the Devil? Why are we so afraid of the dark?

We are inculcated from a very young age to fear the dark, the devil, and to simply shut this out of our awareness, pray, run, hide from the devil.

I remember a song from bible school that I used to love. It had the best harmonies when you sang it in a round.

Lock the door, keep out the devil

Lock the door, keep the devil outside.

Lock the door, keep out the devil,

Light a candle everything is alright

Light a candle everything is alright.

Imagine a room full of angelic children’s voices with rosy apple cheeks and cherub glows in sweet harmony singing these lyrics.

It is no wonder we have so much compartmentalization and difficulty assimilating our experiences here on Earth. We are taught to lock the door on the devil, to keep it outside. We have created a culture of exclusion, of ignoring that which we don’t want to see or hear or experience within ourselves, within others. Even if it’s right in front of us we will selectively see or hear what we want to see or hear.

What exactly is the devil? What are we being asked to lock up, to ignore, to hide from?

What if the devil or the many shades of darkness, if demons are simply part of the Earthly experience?

What is the divine feminine response to these nuances and blatant expressions of the darkness made manifest through subtle abuses and real terror in the human drama?

Is there some force that discerns between dark and light that crushes the dark and only promotes the light here on Earth? Or is All allowed to express? Is it possible this is by divine design? Is it possible this is what the Earth chose to offer, and what you chose to experience?

What if “the devil” is just an aspect of Earth, that you chose to dance with? What if the fear you experience is simply a reinforced and manufactured response to reality here in the physical plane?

What if locking out the devil and lighting a candle is actually creating a build up on the outside of that door of darkness, of uncomfortable feelings and realities and aspects of yourself and others that eventually is going to crash into your experience, break down that door that you are spending so much energy to prop up? And when it does, will you feel victimized?

Horror is one of the most popular genres. Why? Because it is “pretend”? Because the rush of the chemicals stimulated as you are taken into the fictional drama? As adults are we like little kids walking around with fingers in our ears singing “la la la la la” to keep out anything we don’t want to hear or see? What is the impact of this inability or unwillingness to see the truth that has been trained out of us from a very young age?

Do we walk blindly right into the darkness that we were meant to see in the beginning, so that we may be shaken out of our waking dream or fantasy? So that the reality we refuse to embrace will come crashing into our experience in the form of crisis and drama?

We fall in love and are duped by someone we think we can trust. We engage in business deals only to be “screwed over” by someone we believed in. We experience or witness human rights violations, animal cruelty, war and an overwhelming volume of dark dramas playing out in our reality, in our own lives, in the lives of our friends, or on the news, the internet, the world stage, perhaps removed for many of us, but real to others who are experiencing the horror. 

We have legal drama shows and in real life, prisons, court rooms, legal battles playing out between people who met through circumstance or who at one time chose the pairing. Wars that keep popping up like weeds or perennials where we never ever seem to find and remove the root.

Where is Justice? What is Justice? How is our legal system a sword of Truth upholding Divine Law and to what degree is it simply enacting aspects of the egoic drama of dark and light, good and bad, right and wrong?

What if by simply seeing it for what it is initially, and embracing it, that you could experience Peace and create the wholeness you came to create within yourself and within this dimension?

Now I am not talking about embracing “devil worship” or “dark arts” or any other distortions of the Divine that skew in the direction of choosing dark over light. I am talking about integration and embracing the light and the dark. I am talking about  choosing not to separate or compartmentalize these aspects of the Divine, but to be brave and open our eyes and see what is really there, what is in your own life and in this dimension so that you and so that we as human beings can finally come to terms with the Truth and Reality of this dimension where we came to create and to build consciousness and to love.

What if our ability to be present, stable, to weather the storms we experience here trumped our fear? What if we were able to have our ears and eyes open and stand in our center, witnessing, taking guided action as necessary, experience the rapture of the light and the depth of the dark without fear?

What if somehow each of us could steadily, with love encompass the range of human experience?

What if those in the profession of law could uphold Divine Law by deeply resonating in their core the pure tone of Justice? And then take guided action to enforce law in the human dimension?

What if we could begin to question the role of the “devil” in this dimension with an open mind. Maybe this energy that we have been taught to fear and run from is actually here to help us find unshakable Strength, Justice and Divine Love?

What if the Devil and the full host of demons are actually part of the Celestial team? What if they are here to wake us up so that we might embody all aspects of our Light, and flush out any areas of unconscious, lack of integrity, injustice, or other areas where we are not yet filled in, that we came to Earth to face our trials and learn, to become whole.

How would you walk the Earth if you knew without a doubt that the Devil ~ instead of fighting with ~ was walking alongside your Angels, serving your Purpose and your goal of embodiment?
