Exorcism and Possession

Do YOU believe in the Devil?

Today, I begin what is going to be a five week course on the subject of Exorcism and Possession, through the School of Parapsychology.

When the course is completed, I will be happy to share my experience of learning more about this fascinating subject.

As anyone who has read my debut novel, The Banishing, will know, I am very interested in the fascinating subject of demonic possession. The grey area between spiritual warfare and mental illness is one that intrigues me, so I am eager to study this more in depth.

 

 

I think that modern labels such as schizophrenia and personality disorder do much to cast away thoughts of demons and devils, yet in some parts of the world, exorcism is on the rise. Apparently more priests are being asked to train for the task of exorcism.

So it’s a problem that, despite thousands of years of history and science, still persists. I would love to know your thoughts on possession and exorcism. Is it a reality? Mental illness? Religious propaganda which feeds naïve minds? I wonder if this is a real, vivid experience. If so, what a gateway it could serve to our understanding of the soul and after-life.

Please feel free to share your thoughts here. Comment below.

    • Hi Gatekeeper, thanks for following. The course, so far, has mentioned possession and exorcism from many different religions and cultures, it hasn’t just focused on the Christian ideas and theories. It’s been really interesting so far.
