The Consciousness Has Shifted...The Awakening Has Begun
Please note that this is just a theory. If everything is conscious, then maybe everything has a consciousness.
That means that that lying, evil voice in your head that says "I'm unloved", "I'm fat", "I'm unwanted", has a consciousness of its own. A consciousness that *overlaps* with yours, and everything else in existance. My theory is that this consciousness is what people call "demons", or, a "spiritual virus".
Last year, something peculiar happened to me.
Due to an autoimmune disease (ME), I was unable to feed myself properly. I was starving. In the beginning, it wasn't intentional... I was trying to gain weight. I was begging for help. But then something happened.
*Never* in my life before this event that I'm about to tell you about, I had had issues with believing that I was fat etc.
While I was starving, out of *nowhere*, I got the belief that it was okay for me to starve. That voice in my head, that was myself, told me that I needed to lose a certain weight to be a "good person". I set up a goal for myself, to feel less bad about myself. Despite the fact that I was *already* starving due to my disease.
So, while I was starving, I thought "I might as well not do anything about it since it's healthy for me". (Everyone knows it's unhealthy to starve and that it can kill you, but at the time, I got a belief in my head that was surpressing my normal beliefs)
Not until I had lost the weight, I realized that I had been fooled.
Fooled by that voice. That voice of not-being-good-enough.
I realized quickly that I had to gain weight again (which is exceptionally hard with my disease).
I believe that I had a brief encounter with a spiritual virus, or, a demon. Beliefs that had been caught in my system for years, from the media and the internet. Resting, in the back of my mind. Waiting for the right moment to attack. Like a conscious being, overlapping its intelligence with the intricacy of my own mind. A "demon". Making plans behind my back, in a world that us humans cannot see. A being that is gaining its energy from our suffering. In hindsight, I would think that I can even see glimpses of an intelligent plan/structure (but I won't go into details since it's very personal).
Never listen to the voice of not-being-good-enough. It's a demon. You will only realize when it's too late, unless you notice it in time.
Now, the funny thing was, this demon came back to me, half a year later. As if the same exact beliefs had been resting inside of my system, like a frozen virus, ready to explode any moment. Thankfully, I quickly recognized it and fought it off immediately.
"Go away from me. Liar."
Never would I let such a being touch me again.
Note that this was a brief encounter with this demon.
If viruses can exist in physical form, why can't they also exist on some kind of spiritual level? And they're contagious too.
My theory of us overlapping our consciousnesses with spiritual viruses/demons was inspired by this article about a demon called Choronzon: http://www.bibliotecapleyades.net/cienciareal/cienciareal19.htm
My personal advice: Don't think of your thoughts as something other than you that you have to resist because here's the catch: Everything is is consciousness and everything is one!! If you try to make it an arm wrestle game of I vs them, trust me, they are way more equipped to win than you because your anguish feeds them. The harder you resist(resistance is negative energy) the bigger the "demons" get. Instead, listen to them in a non-resisting way because ultimately, every experience is here to teach us a lesson. If you learn that demon's lesson and grow beyond the demon, it's gone forever!
I've found a fabulous video explaining the whole thing really well
Thank you, but I luckily do not have those thoughts anymore. And when I did, they were very, very mild (I questioned them a lot), and it was easier for me to fight back thinking of them as something caused by an evil consciousness.
Regarding the video: Very interesting. I didn't know that other people had thought of how "everything exists" and made such a connection with demons. Also, I know that angels exist, that's for sure.
@topic, yes demons are real in my experience. So are angels. Meditate if you want to connect more with your real being and get more mind control. Most people are not aware their thoughts are not their own, but there is always a busy chatter for most people. It's like a worst case scenario, you walk into a room, and mind says 'everyones looking at me' -- bt everyone is not. It's just our fears, emotions etc. that manifest as thoughts.
With meditation you can become above your thoughts and above your fears. Thus reach higher states of consicousness. But we have to do it regularly or it doesn't really work much. Only persistent meditation shows results.
Don't fight mind
Don't fight others
Don't fight thoughts
Do't fight emotions
But if a demon wants to enter your space, or body, say no
I too found they vanish once we face them, but I still notice them in people. Only vanished from my dreams.
Much of humanity has demons.
But it is their own choice, they love demons. Addictions are often caused by demons. Same is anger often.
All is energy, and demonic energy is negative fear based.
It is better to move up the energy scale, by Acceptance.
Also it is possible to have demons without being aware. In fact most humans who have will have them a whole lifetime without finding out. They can usually only be removed by a shaman or psychic or such.
They usually cause little trouble for most, in fact it may give them fame, money, but als make them hurt other people for fun. Anger is often demonic. Anger for no reason.
Self injury with food or drugs too... , because it is natural to love ones divine human body.
It is best not to get a demon.
They prey on those willing to give up their will, and they can enter our life even if we don't invite them in. May get them from others.
If 80% of society has a demon, chances you will get it too, unless you live your life caringly.
And that's where meditation comes in.
Some say people drink to get possessed and drinking means spirit inflicting, spirit affecting (spiritus original meaning).
Yet complaining about drinking/drinkers too, usually a demon too.
So avoiding demons is very very hard to do.
It is interesting to note that a guru is said to be a person who has driven out his own demons.
No anger in a guru.
Also means a person whodrives out demons I heard.
Brings love from source to drive out world's demons.
Because the world ha many demons, and wars etc.
Knowing the truth about demons wouldn't help us like above post said. Not if demons give us anger.
Only acceptance, love,,,, love is the truth.
Only love heals.
Demons Want us to fight. To fight them.They gain power there.
It's why they feed us stuff that make us angry politically, in tv ,,, or even why people attack us for fun in school to 'fight us' --- they needed prey.
But holy is he who is able to turn the other chin
Who has given up all need to fight
Or to share anger.
It is not easy to stop sharing demon's ways.
May have to stop mentioning demons at all, even if they exist. I.e. to stop mentioning they prefer sharing their 'messages' of fear,anger in tv,newsmedia,radio..
What can liberate humanity, can imprison humanity too.
But love always liberates.
Love is the exception.
Love is the truth of what we are.
We are light and love.
Light bodies. Manifested from heavenly light, and unconditional love.
Light shapes the body.
Demons can only dim the light, if we chose their ways.
make sure chose creators ways.
organic? , kindness? peace, love ,,, focusing on love ways
I wouldn't doubt that demons exist, or that malicious consciousness exists if this is closer to the sense you'd intended. But I am extremely familiar with the inner voice you're describing, one which stokes your anxieties, insecurities, and frustrations. And it is as much a part of you as the inner voice which inspires confidence, peace, and security. It is the musing of an apparatus that most people never learn to control. It is the human mind acting without restraint.
Thought is like a channel of water cascading over the native terrain of the mind. It adapts its course to suit the topography. When we are born, we are the nearest we come to a blank slate. There has been no programming, no suggestion, no influence. We have only our natural disposition to guide our development and inform the way we engage with and react to programming elements. So thought is naturally channeled through our basic inclinations. If we are more susceptible to stress, we will hear the anxious voice more often, and it will wield more power over our mood. The more frequently a thought occurs, and the greater the intensity of the thought, the greater its capacity to reshape your mind so that it can occur again. Programming may change the terrain of your mind. Mindfulness can do the same. These three influences, in concert with your natural temperament, work to determine which thoughts you are susceptible to. Even if external influences have molded your mind, the thought is still yours.
If we dissociate from our own thoughts, we risk unknowingly making an enemy of ourselves. The sort of dangerous neurosis where we berate ourselves for berating ourselves, a vicious cycle. Personally I've found that the anxious voice has just as much to tell us as the confident voice, if we are strong enough and open enough to heed the message. When the voice says I am not good enough, I ask myself why I feel that way. I investigate the insecurity, get to the heart of the issue. If anxiety comes from pain, I will heal it. If insecurity comes from an irrational conviction, I will correct it. And if the feeling of inadequacy arises in response to real deficiencies, I work to overcome them.
It's all in your reaction.
Can't believe I hadn't responded to this one yet.
If there are people obsessed with eating other people then there will be other spirits on the other side equally as bad. I will avoid using the term Dark as some here are touchy about that phrase.
Personally I had a run in with a powerful entity. Started innocent enough... in the mid 1990's through chat on a BBS. A woman had a problem with something around her baby. Wondered if someone could advise. She did mention she was into Wicca so clearing and other things she knew.
That was when not asking the right questions got me into big trouble. The entity decided to drop in for a visit.. then I asked her how strong was this entity. She said it had beaten her boyfriend up...he was no good for her.. and literally drove him out of the house.. manifesting physical strikes.. at least the equal sensation of them. Well brown shorts time ..really... the entity hung around as I chatted online with her... the hair on the back of my neck literally was standing on end. The only thought that came to me was if I let on to the entity I knew it was there I was screwed... it would be party time for it.
So I had to put on my best poker face and ignore it... not acknowledge its presence... That night I had the most lucid realistic dream of my life... you guessed it a Freddy Nightmare one... I did turn it over and dominated the dream.. but oh great. My girlfriend had a lucid rape dream and she also turned it over... yes I never told her about the entity.. I did not want to get a frying pan over the head.
How was it resolved.. well the woman.. made a deal with it.. as it was protecting her... it could be around but on civil terms. No I did not stay in contact with her.
Moral... assumptions are dangerous.. big nasty stuff is out there.. however, if you listen to self.. more often than not you will get through it.
A few years later I dated a fire starter.. I was very polite to her... yes the energy around her interfered on a normal basis with electronics. Fortunately I wasn't rich enough to interest her, so she dumped me.. whew just missed another one. She had resolved the issues of setting peoples homes on fire she got very angry with..she confessed to 4 she was certain her fault as a teenager. She now kept her power under control... she is also a lower level manger at a very large company.
Second moral.. I do not disbelieve people and for that reason I have encountered a lot of individuals with very interesting abilities. I respect them because I also learned that most of those horror movies are based on at least a small grain of sand...show respect.. else you will be on the wrong side when the stuff hits the fan..
Hope this helps.. but yes from person experience bad stuff is out there.. good news doesn’t have to always end in tragedy...
But ask questions if something is a bit out of the ordinary before ever offering advice... a lesson I learned the hard way.
Yes I believe that it happened to you.. at least something did.
Advice be nice to people here... you just never know what they hadn't told you about themselves yet... scared nope.. just show proper respect... well usually. :-)
