IMG_1084.JPGThis isn’t going to be one of my normal long-winded, research-laden posts. This is just a quick link to a story that I found interesting which deals in the topic of demonology and/or exorcism. Although I do not agree with the methods that the content provider used in order to record the video in the first place, it gives a basic understanding, visually, to what type of environment you could potentially see during a legitimate exorcism.

Brief Exorcism Footage

Djinn SigilWithin my own research into the world of the paranormal, I began to start digging into anything I could to find out details in regards to malevolent hauntings and/or certain spirits. And at first, myself being Roman Catholic, obviously began to look inwards to my own religion for answers, but unfortunately, the topic of demonology pre-dates even my religion. So, my answer, it seemed, was to begin digging into other faith systems. I began to start studying the Hebrew religion of Judaism, and as you could imagine, that took up quite a lot of my time. Then, however, I came across something that made me take a step back, and reassess some patterns of thoughts that I had been forming.

This article is going to be a special one, because it is going to contain contributions from people who are more familiar with certain matters of faith than I am. They are not authors for the site, but simply people, both of which who choose to remain anonymous, who either have insight or personal experience in regards to this topic.

We are going to go in-depth the “demons” of the Islamic faith, the Djinn.

Sometimes, though not commonly, you come across a story that just grips you from the second that you read it, and intrigues you long after you’ve finished it. This article is going to be one of those. This was not written for the upcoming ‘Diabolical Confusions: Volume 1’ book, but rather, due to it’s original nature of spawning from the internet, it seemed a fitting place to be drafted specifically for the website. Some fans wanted some new and unique content, and at the time of writing, I couldn’t think of a better story. It fits right in here, as it contains elements of a haunting, malevolent spirits, paranormal activity, highly religious undertones, an accursed item, and lots and lots of witness verification. As a matter of fact, this story is so damned intriguing that it is the basis for Sam Raimi’s newest horror project, “The Possession”, released in August, 2012, starring Kyra Sedgwick and Jeffrey Dean Morgan. This story has been around for a while – 2004 and earlier, actually – and even I remember coming across this listing “back in the day”. Only recently did I discover that it was the inspiration for the above-referenced movie, and here is everything I know about it. (more…)

First things first, let me explain why I am bringing this up: For the past ¾ of a year, I have been researching the Islamic “demons”, also known as the djinn. Their article is almost complete and will be released very soon, however, there is one thing that has come up in some of my own research that I feel the need to bring to your attention. I warn you, there are some readers who may honestly take offense to this article, and I can completely understand that. Please read with caution, and understand that it is not my intention to offend anyone. (more…)

One of the things that I come by a lot, is the fact that there is a genuine misunderstanding of what is and is not permissible in order to have a potentially victorious exorcism. I am sure that most people may know that there are people throughout the world that offer up exorcisms, and while this may exist in some forms of Christianity, in the main sect of said religion, Roman Catholicism, having a Priest perform an exorcism without the express and clear permission from a Bishop is expressly forbidden. There are reasons for this, one of those reasons mainly being that in Europe, during the 1600’s at the height of the witchcraze, there were many, many zealots who were going around, creating their own types of exorcism rituals, and in far more cases than anyone cares to admit, the end result was not spiritual liberation, as would be expected or hoped for. The end result often turned out to be death. (more…)
