Confusion is defined as a situation of panic or a breakdown of order. This definition describes exactly what happened to me during the years I was attacked by witchcraft. When the attacks first started, I was confused because the effects of the attacks were so unlike me. This kind of confusion was a normal reaction to a new and strange set of circumstances. But the spirit of confusion is much more than being puzzled about something. It is like being surrounded by a thick cloud that affects everything about you and your life. It changes the way you process information by affecting your ability to think and reason as you used to. Because my thoughts were all mixed up, it made it very difficult for me to accomplish much of anything.
There are many spirits, and they all contributed greatly to my confusion. I want to make this as clear as possible. Witchcraft affected the way I experienced emotion. I was no longer able to feel joy in any way. I was nervous all the time, and I walked through life in a state of panic. I could feel the presence of evil all the time, and no matter what I did, nothing stilled me. Demons attacked me all day and all night. Some demons were more prevalent during the day and others at night. In the next few paragraphs, I will try to give you a picture of what happened to me so that you can identify the evil spirits that may be affecting your life.
I want to start with the spirit of obsession, which affected me mainly during the day. Obsession is defined as an idea or a thought that continually preoccupies or intrudes a person’s mind. The word intrude describes exactly what happened to me. It was like there was an intruder who somehow gained access to my mind, and I was no longer in control of my thoughts. The spirit of obsession is relentless. It floods the mind with a short phrase that is repeated continually throughout the day. The phrase will be particular to the person since the demon knows how to cause the person the most mental anguish. It is like a song getting stuck in your head, but the message is always negative. This demon will harass you until he wears you down and drains you of every bit of energy you have.
Now I want to focus on what happens during the night. Terror is defined as violence or the threat of violence used as a weapon of intimidation or coercion. You have to remember that there is a war being waged against you. And in war, the enemy uses violence and intimidation tactics to control its victims. Sleep deprivation is one of the devil’s most powerful weapons. He uses it to terrorize his victims, causing incredible fear and total exhaustion, which increases the confusion and leaves a person unable to live their life in any kind of healthy way. My anxiety increased at night because I knew that when I went to bed the demons would come, and they did. They were spirits of terror that used violence and intimidation to make every night unbearable for me. I was afraid to stay awake, and I was afraid to fall asleep. I heard strange sounds, saw evil shapes roam around the walls of my bedroom, and I even heard demonic voices whisper in my ear. I was lucky if I even got a few hours of sleep a night, and when I did drift off, I saw demonic images that woke me right back up. There were times that I slept long enough to have horrible nightmares that were extremely vivid and very real. I felt demons poke and push me, and there were other supernatural occurrences that just defied explanation. I was terrified and exhausted all the time. If it wasn’t for God, I don’t know if I would have survived.
“For God is not a God of confusion but of peace.”1 Cor 14:33
I want to tie the spirit of confusion into all of this now. Confusion interferes with a person’s ability to live a healthy life and affects the psyche, or one’s entire being, body, soul, and spirit. After a while, you can’t think. Everything is a blur, and the spirit of confusion takes over. The more dominant the spirit of confusion becomes, the more damaged a person will be. As all of the other spirits worked together to tear me down, the spirit of confusion silently grew stronger, leaving me unable to function or problem-solve like I used to. I knew that the order of my life had been snatched right out from under me, but over time the confusion became so debilitating that I had no idea how to get my life back. And that process took years. What I am trying to show here is how the different spirits work together to destroy and oppress a person.
The spirit of obsession can work in conjunction with the spirits of depression, harassment, anxiety, doubt, discouragement, despair, and more. The spirit of terror can work in conjunction with the spirits of fear, control, destruction, violence, torment, and many more. So any spirit can interact with another at any time, and the effects on the person undoubtedly empower the spirit of confusion. The point is that demons feed off of each other, and if they can continue to do that, then they will gain more control over a person’s mind. And without the ability to think clearly and problem solve, it will be much harder to escape the influence these demons have over your life.
“There are two things the devil is afraid of: fervent communions and frequent visits to the Blessed Sacrament”Saint John Bosco
The following prayer by Father Chad Ripperger will limit the demons from collaborating. It is an easy step you can take toward freedom and finding yourself again. But the process is slow, and you will need support and encouragement. I urge anyone dealing with something like this to participate in the sacraments as often as possible. Daily Mass if you can, and weekly confession. Pray and fast in the best way you can, and sit before the Blessed sacrament so you can find peace. Call a priest, they are the most powerful people on the planet. They will be able to guide and help you through these difficult times, and if they are unable to, they will know a priest who can. Go beyond your fears and the lies the demons are telling you and make the call. You won’t regret it.
Prayer of Command
In His name and by the power of His Cross and Blood, I ask Jesus to bind any evil spirits, forces, and powers of the earth, air, fire, or water, of the netherworld and the satanic forces of nature. By the power of the Holy Spirit and by His authority, I ask Jesus Christ to break any curses, hexes, or spells, and send them back to where they came from if it be His Holy Will. I beseech Thee Lord Jesus to protect us (my family, etc.) by pouring Thy Precious Blood on us and I ask Thee to command that any departing spirits leave quietly, without disturbance, and go straight to Thy Cross to dispose of as Thou sees fit. I ask Thee to bind any demonic interaction, interplay, or communication. I place N. (person, place, or thing) under the protection of the Blood of Jesus Christ which He shed for us. Amen.
