Of Interest: A Recent Case of ‘Demonic’ Possession

Browsing the internet recently, I came across a very interesting article published by the BBC.  This article relates to a case of supposed demonic possession in Indianapolis, America. This case I think is of high interest for numerous reasons. One, the case, when viewed against the backdrop of other similar cases involving Demonic Possession and Poltergeists, shows remarkable similarities. Two, the case was not just the eyewitness reports of one or more questionable witnesses, but rather activity of a paranormal nature was witnessed by medical professionals working on the case. One instance for sure was blatant, and without natural explanation, if the report is to be believed.

And in case of a host failure:

The sheer amount of eyewitness testimony means that this is definitely one of the most impressive cases in recent years I’ve stumbled across. It must be noted that this must be hell to go through as a family, quite literally. It is a shame that in many of these cases, it is always assumed by medical professionals to simply be a delusion existing solely in the minds of those undergoing the experience. This only causes a further downward emotive spiral as they become further ostracised, increasingly not only being persecuted by the spirits at home, but further by the support structure supposedly in place to protect them.

In cases like this, it is obvious that the state of fear and panic causes the feedback loop these spirits want. As the terror takes hold and natural explanations are deemed rightly insufficient, the outbreak of sudden religious mania is visible in many of these cases, usually creating a worse situation. From many case studies, intervention of the church usually aggravates matters, and very often causes more problems. Usually the incidences only subside after a specific action has been taken. Some of these actions can be seen to be general when many cases are looked at, but others have a distinct specific action which causes such disturbances to end.

Whilst I will leave my thoughts on this matter for another time, it suffices to say  I find such cases compelling because they match my own belief about the Dark Dead, and similar spirits, which can if strong enough, cause such problems.

Hope you enjoy having a good read through.
