I think you will find Dr. Baldwin's book interesting and worthwhile.
In a Roman Catholic exorcism, the exorcist tries to send the possessing
entities to Hell. That's why entities who don't want to go to Hell fight
the exorcist so hard, and why entities who don't mind going back to Hell
scorn the exorcist. I have the Roman Ritual -- it is medieval in every sense
of the term. There is no love or good-will in it.
Why is this new approach safer and more successful? God's angels support
efforts to send spirits to Heaven (salvation), but they do not support efforts
to send spirits to Hell (damnation). And we provide demons with an alternative,
a means of escape from the torments they know they will experience if they
go back into darkness.
>The exorcist works under the authority of the church, which I am
told is for protection.
Protection from lawsuits, perhaps, where the state recognizes the right
of a church to license exorcists. Authority exists only in the minds of
those who accept it and allow themselves to be governed by it. Attempts
to exercise authority have no effect on anyone else. And neither angels
nor demons accept the authority of the church.
>My friend Fran also recommended belonging to a church so that I am
"covered" by the prayers of the priest/minister. Do you think
this is necessary, and if so, why?
This comes from the idea that clergy are closer to God than laity. It is
an ancient assertion of the church. In some cases, it may be true. But of
all the people I know, clergy are among the least likely to be effective
in this work. For sure, they don't learn about it in seminary, and most
don't want to hear about it, because it is outside or goes against what
they were taught. However, there are some notable exceptions.
>When you do spirit releasement, you ask for warrior angels. I'm assuming
their weapon is light?
This subject is very interesting to me personally. I have a lot of warrior
in me -- but these warrior angels are a different kind of warrior. They
do not damage or destroy living things. They use light in various forms,
not as a weapon, but only as a means of restraint. I have been watching
what they do -- and don't do -- so as to learn from them a better way of
being a warrior.
>have you ever asked your as-angels why they (and others in God's
Kingdom) don't come up with a better means of communication?
Yes. They say the problem isn't in the *means* of communication. It is in
the attitudes, purposes, desires, ends, of those who use any means of communication.
>God isn't omnipotent??? Next you'll tell me God isn't omniscient,
omnificent, or omnipresent!
Men attribute omniscience to God for the same reason they attribute omniscience
to Santa Claus -- they want people to believe it: "He sees you when
you're sleeping. He knows when you're awake. He knows if you've been bad
or good. So be good for goodness sake!" The purpose of this doctrine
is political. It is a type of crowd-control by mind-control, intended to
instill enough superstitious fear to make people be good. As someone put
it: "Without this doctrine, there will never be enough gendarmes!"
And as it does with little children, it often works to some degree -- at
least for awhile -- among those who believe it.
>Seems to make for a fairly helpless God. Except that my experience
has been that God does some miraculous things.
So? Purpose is more important than power. Yes, God does miraculous things,
but the fact that something is miraculous does not prove that God did it.
Deceivers often lead people astray (away from God) by doing "great
signs and wonders" (miracles).
>I still have a hard time understanding why God *can't* help at times.
The main reason is because free will is a fact. And as Jesus said, the fields
are ripe for harvest, but the workers are few.
>Why aren't the "good guys" more aggressive in helping out
over here? Why not more direct involvement? What's Jesus doing?
Basically, I don't believe God *can't* help. I believe God and those who
work for him *do* help all they can. I have seen what they do -- but often
no one else on earth saw what God's workers did or recognized it for what
>I frequently get interference when I attempt to pray, enough to cause
quite a bit of frustration.
I don't think the problem is your lack of experience, or inability to stay
focused, or confidence level. I think various spirits are deliberately causing
That experience when you were a teenager is interesting. Yes, it is incredibly
easy to induce a trance. Spiritualist doctrine does not prepare people to
encounter evil or invasive spirits, or even warn them such spirits exist.
Do you recall specifically what you did to fight it off?
>Over the years things continued to happen because I was able to turn
the faucet enough to slow down the flow, but I could never turn it completely
Let's take a closer look at the seals and gaskets in that leaky faucet.
Psychic opening is usually something like sympathy, empathy, or curiosity.
Specifically what types of openings do you have? Which type of opening has
>I've prayed for blessings for all those connected to
me in any way.
This may be an indication of why you are susceptible to spirits. Prayer
for blessing is not the same as the act of blessing. And blessing all those
connected to you is not the same as detaching those who should not be connected
to you. Some entities will not leave unless they are evicted; and for that,
one needs to ask God to send a team of warrior angels.
>I do the "spiritual shower" exercise, (and frequently feel
blocked there also.)
Spiritual shower is for cleansing away (non-living) residue, not entities.
>So, it's the same old story. I do not know if the block is me, or
For sure, spirits who don't want to leave will tell you the block is you,
>You said, "enough pressure or flow in the line to keep the other's
stuff from flowing to you (very much like plumbing)." I obviously don't
know how to do that.
Yeah, I haven't explained it. The best example is the act of blessing, in
which you send the energy yourself, from yourself, with no outside assistance.
It is active, not passive; transmission, not reception; and therefore assertive,
>And then suddenly I was looking up from way down in the front passenger
seat of a car and I was suffocating. A voice said, "A baby died. Left
in the heat." I was breathing in short gasps and my heart was pounding.
Well, I did a lot more praying, got myself out of that front seat and back
"home." By home, I mean that I broke all connections and "came
back" to my bedroom. I have no inkling if it was me. It was as if I
was in the infant's body, experiencing what the infant was experiencing.
I was not aware of any pain, just my hammering heart and labored breathing.
Okay, this sounds more like out-of-body travel along a caring-connection
than it does like a reactivated past-life memory -- but why that particular
connection? There must have been some sort of sympathy or empathy for that
child, as a person or as a reminder of a situation similar to some personal
>I had a severe allergic reaction to penicillin when I was 3 years
old, and my throat closed up so that I nearly suffocated. I have never been
able to swallow large pills because my throat closes. Something causes my
throat to swell. I can't swim under water because it gives me an overwhelming
feeling of suffocation. And I've got a gag reflex that ought to be in the
Guinness Book of World Records.
Hmm. The origin of this set of reactions could be this-life or past-life
>I suppose it could have been a past-life regression. But that doesn't
fit with the situation -- I had been praying for a woman who seemed to have
definite darkness surrounding her. It seems incongruous that I would slip
into a past-life regression at that particular time. What do you think?
Yes, the starting point was in praying for that specific woman. Perhaps
the dark ones in her attacked you by stimulating your memory of a situation
or relationship in which you were choking.
>We could use your advice on a situation with a man who seems to have
picked up something from Japan or China. He is a professor of oriental languages.
He visited several Asian countries and came back very ill.
From the information given, I agree with Fran: he probably has an "ancient
one" attached to him -- and the spirit is probably an ancient oriental.
A lot of the problems experienced by Vietnam veterans turn out to be caused
by the ghosts of ancient Chinese that attached to them while they were in
Vietnam. In fact, people in the villages used to go up to GI's and touch
them in order to transfer their evil spirits to the GI's. It's exactly the
same mechanism as the transfer of a holy spirit by the laying on of hands
-- see Acts 8:14-24.
Your experience of being blocked (but not attacked) is typical of the way
old ghosts defend their turf.
This man is probably holding on to the entity, so the question is: "Why
is he holding on to it? What does the attachee do for him, or promise to
do for him, or threaten to remove from him if it is removed?" (Usually
a skill or ability, or protection, or guidance, or something like that.)
Did he experience the sudden, almost miraculous, perhaps overnight acquisition
of a language or dialect?
Yes, the attachee is no doubt trying to keep him away from the exorcist
-- Baldwin reports exactly that type of spirit interference, even when a
client was enroute to an appointment with him. I have also seen it several
Angels may decide not to remove an entity lest one more evil take its place,
but we don't have enough information, so that is the angels' decision to
make, not ours.
At this point, I suggest that you continue: 1. making the two connections,
so God can send His angels to this man; 2. helping the man see there is
something he deems good that he needs to let go of; 3. encouraging him to
see an exorcist more qualified in this kind of work.
Peace and blessings
