Signs Someone You Know Might Be Possessed By A Demonic Presence

Updated 22 May 2020 38.5k views10 items

Exorcism is a skilled practice, and the methods to evict a demon have developed through many centuries of observation and practice by the religious faithful or spiritual leaders. Since recorded history, religious denominations and spiritually in-tune clairvoyants have sought to lead the battle against demonic possession. However, the challenge for many is the ability to recognize whether a demonic presence actually possess a person, or whether that person, instead, suffers from an undiagnosed mental illness.

The International Association of Exorcists meets twice a year in Rome. While they do not publish their statutes, which outline the criteria for determining whether a demon genuinely possesses a human being, they do provide legitimacy to the battle between sanity, goodness, and the fiendish demons in their various forms that, according to the association, seek to assume our bodies and dominate our minds.

Should a person become possessed by a demonic presence, it's of critical importance that an individual skilled in exorcism assist in expelling the monster. However, just like the  International Association of Exorcists, it's important to first determine whether the person in question legitimately does have a demon inside them before any attempts at an exorcism.
