Am I Possessed by a Demon - Signs and Symptoms

You’d have thought that being possessed by a Demon would be the same as going crazy. i.e. If you think that you’re going crazy, you’re almost definitely not. Because somebody who was truly going ‘crazy’, would be unaware of that fact, and the fact that you suspect you might be, is evidence, like it or not, that you’re still very much sane.

However, when it comes to Demonic possession, perhaps it is a little more like suffering from a debilitating addiction, such as severe alcoholism, or drug addiction. Meaning that you can be very aware of the terrible ways in which you often behave, but often, or so it feels, there is very little that you can do about it - but watch yourself deteriorate.

Am I Possessed by a Demon?

If your head is rotating 360, and you’re spewing green pea soup everywhere, this would be an easy question to answer. But for those a little less-obviously possessed, it is said that there are four signs (or signals) - that can be used to help identify cases of genuine Demonic possession. A diagnosis that through Exorcism, can hopefully be cured.

Four Signs of Demonic Possession: 

(1) Unnatural Strength.

While there are other known instances in which people have exhibited strength far beyond that which would normally be considered normal (such as the cases you may well have heard of of accident victims, etc. lifting objects far heavier than they normally could in crisis situations, in order to save the lives of trapped loved ones), exhibiting strength far beyond that normal for size, and build, can be a tell-tale sign of possible Demonic possession.

(2) An aversion to Holy objects.

An aversion to Holy objects has been attributed to almost every ‘evil’ entity since way-back-when. From Vampires, to Troll, to Demon. Symbols of faith in Gods, and deities of all religions (depending upon your beliefs) are often considered to be powerful tools in the ‘fight’ against malicious entities. And as such, an aversion to Holy objects such as crucifixes, and other religious medallions, could be seen as signalling Demonic possession within a subject.

(3) Knowing that thought to be unknown to the subject. 

One example of this factor, is the subject speaking in languages unknown to the possibly possessed (sometimes referred to as ‘speaking in tongues’). Old-World, and biblical languages are particularly suggestive of possible Demonic possession. While another example of this particular signal is the potentially possessed being aware of events that could not be known to the subject via means other than those considered to be paranormal (taunting those close to them with unrevealed secrets, etc.).

(4) Preternatural Movement.

‘Preternatural’, is defined as being, ‘Out of or being beyond the normal course of nature; i.e. Surpassing the normal or usual.  And this sign of possession can be thought of as being akin to the Psychokinetic ability of ‘Telekinesis’. Or in other words, the ability to move,around, or in other ways manipulate objects (be they animal, mineral, or vegetable) without any form of physical contact. An ability that presumably many within the psychic community would argue is not necessarily caused by Demonic possession. But in this context, is considered to be another of the signalling factors used to ‘diagnose’ possession. And separate them from those suffering from mental illness, etc.

  1. I think another sign is when you want to do bad things to people. That's what I think. :(

  2. Evil spirits can't stand crucifixes and stuff. So I think that number two is really true. And priests. So if you think you're possessed, go see a priest!!!
