A question from Chris He writes:
Apparently, traditional healers have talked about pos-
session for a long time–possession by otherworldly
spirits or by human spirits, or by focused, highly
energized human thought-forms. But for psychologists
to bring this up is very telling. And they claim that both
physical and mental changes may be caused by possess-
“So, my questions are: “How common is the phenomenon’?”
This Awareness indicates that this is much more
common than entities realize. That in Fact, many entities
have shadows or possessive spirits shadowing them, and
they are not even aware of such. This Awareness
indicates that any entity who appears to have continuous
bad luck may consider that this is one of the possibilities
or causes of such had luck.
“Do the possessor and the possessed have to have
something in cornmon–some common feelings or
This Awareness indicates it is not necessary for them
originally to have common links in their emotions or
thoughts, but it is common for them to grow familiar
with each other’s thoughts and emotions, so that the one
being possessed may not even know the thoughts and
feelings he or she is feeling.
This Awareness indicates as suggested in the question,
the possessive spirit normally belongs to a departed
being, one who is no in longer in physical form, but the
spirit can also belong to one who is alive.
This Awareness suggests that this does not always have a
negative effect on the entity.
This Awareness indicates that it is particularly hazard-
ous to an entity when the spirit that is no longer in a
living body, begins to express his or her life energies
through the living being through a kind of shadowing or possessive use of the beings body. When this occurs, the spirit in possession of another can become more in control of that entity’s expressions, to the point where it interferes with the entity’s natural characteristics and personality, whereby the entity begins to express at kind of split personality or dual personality, that which is their own and that which is the shadow of the spirit.
This can be very difficult with the entity, to share his
or her body with a shadowing spirit. This Awareness
indicates that it can cause emotional disruptions. It can
cause entities to say things they would not normally say
and do things they would not normally do, to behave-in
ways that are not necessarily to the benefit of the entity.
And therefore, the possessive spirit can disrupt an entity’s
life and cause all kinds of problems for them,
especially in regard to his or her relationships with.
