Spiritual Hygiene

In the book The Rite, author Matt Baglio tells the story of one Roman Catholic Priest and his journey to Rome to learn to be an Exorcist. In the book we find that at that time the course was primarily a lecture course and I assume it still is—not being Roman Catholic I have no way of knowing if there have been any changes in the course syllabus—and any practical experience Father Gary Thomas received was through observing practicing exorcists in the greater metropolitan area of Rome. While we in the west have come to believe that all exorcisms resemble the one portrayed in the movie The Exorcist, most real exorcisms take Continue reading

God’s E.R. helps cast out demonic manifestations

By BILL SHERMAN World Religion Writer for Tulsa World

“We see a variety of (demonic) manifestations, but not for long,” said John Heim, a volunteer minister who is also a Tulsa air traffic controller.

Mysterious Forces: Exploring the Poltergeist Phenomenon

by David Metcalfe for the Daily Grail

Christopher Laursen is a PhD Candidate in the Department of History at the University of British Columbia whose dissertation focuses on poltergeist phenomena. I first met him at the Parapsychological Association’s 2012 conference, and have been glad that his web magazine, the Extraordinarium, has allowed me to continue following developments in his research over the past few years. His PhD dissertation, titled Mischievous Forces, looks at the shifting perspectives on poltergeist phenomena in the 20th century, focusing on changing research paradigms in the United States and UK during this period. It’s with great pleasure that I had the opportunity to interview him via email regarding his work and recent developments in his studies, including an online survey of people who have experienced purported poltergeist phenomena (Click Here to take the survey).

Are You Being Attacked? Deliverance and Exorcism –
Protect Yourself and Your Loved Ones

By Tiffany Snow

Are you suffering from unexplainable, prolonged, repetitive or unusual health problems? Do you have constant assaults on your finances, physical health or family and relationships? Do you have addictive behavior or dependency? Do you feel that you will never have long-term loving relationships, never accomplish the dreams and goals in your heart, never have full physical health or abundance, that you always have to watch for the next shoe to drop, that you take one step forward and two steps back, that you are not worthy enough, not smart enough, not good enough? If you said yes to any of the above, you need to recognize where this negative input is coming from, and break the cycle of abuse. You are the one being abused, you are the one being targeted; and it is time to give you the tools to Continue reading
