It is an interesting article and I probably believe what he is saying, that demonic possession exists and has fallen under the umbrella of mental illness. he's not saying that all mental illness can be explained by demonic possession, although lots of voice hearers say their experiences are spiritual.

Yea I agree that not all mental illness is demonic related

He's almost got it, replace Demonic for Daemonic and he's on the right track.

A persons Daemon (the mind they share a body with) can actually take control of the body completely under certain circumstances, mine did it to me during my psychosis by saturating my body with DMT and Opioids naturally produced by glands in the brain to increase Dopamine levels, illegal drugs and alcohol can do the same, ever thought "I'm not me when I drink" or thought that about someone else? Well it's the Daemon that takes control.

Many native American tribes used to take drugs and let their Daemons dance around a fire and have a jolly good time, they believed they were possessed by the spirits of their ancestors. And not just in north American cultures either.

Unfortunately for most of us here we have crazy Daemons that do nothing but bother us just because they're social outcasts and it's fun to them.

Thank you for explaining. I had never heard of a daemon before. xx

I'm not really up on religion and demons but as far as I understand a demon is a dark entity from religion that comes from another realm that would enter the body and could only be removed with an exorcism, A Daemon already inhabits the body and has done since birth and cannot be separated from its Eidolon (our mind).

The main function of a Daemon is to help and guide us using their abilities but some go astray like mine and do the opposite.

I once called my local Catholic Church so they could perform an exorcism on me. I feared I was demon possessed because I kept having blasphemous images. Not going into detail though, too traumatizing. They told me that they would have their priest from Sacramento come to where I live and perform the exorcism. He never came. I kept calling about it. They always said he couldn't make it after all. Then they told me he stopped performing exorcisms. I swear my dysfunctional family and I may be demon possessed. Either that or cursed. I'm not a Christian anymore but that religion still haunts and terrifies me to this day.
