There are three general stages of demonic possession.
- Manifestation and Infestation
a. This can affect houses, forests, cars, even a doll. Don't dismiss it, an upcoming article will deal with Annabel, a chilling true story about a possessed doll. You name it, an infestation can take place within it. Think of it as a form of haunting with the express idea of the demon introducing itself to the intended target through surreptitious means. That could mean pretending to be the ghost of a lost little girl or a dead relative, or even coming through a Ouija board session or seance with the express purpose of breaking down your resistance. The demon is seeking approval at this stage, approval to stay. It almost needs permission to begin to reveal it's true self. It will slowly increase in tempo as the demon gains strength as the chosen individual looses his or hers.
a. Now we move onto stage two: Oppression. This is where the entity makes its true identity known and moves into full attack mode. This can be physical, mental, and psychical in nature and is designed to break the affected person's will to live. Sleep deprivation, increased paranormal activity, bites, scratches, and even sexual assaults may take place. At this point the victim may call in a psychic or paranormal investigation group. This can be dangerous if they do not know what they are dealing with and will often make things worse. Depression is often a symptom at this stage, and as the will and faith of the individual ares reaching breaking point, the demonic entity will move onto the third and final stage. Possession.
- Full possession
a) In this final and most dangerous stage, the Demon now has sufficient power and hold over the individual to "close the deal" so to speak. Typically the person affected will have little to no self worth, will or faith left. The evil entity will be in control more often than not, and the influenced may well be hearing voices telling them to do harm to others or themselves. Manipulation is at an all time high, and the very soul of the individual it at stake.In the worst of cases the demon may even have control of the host body like a parasite, which is really at the base level what a demon is. The demon's goal at this point is to drive the affected to suicide, and to take as many people with them on the way, thus condemning their soul to eternity in hell.
