Spiritual Witchcraft has many different effects on people. Some carry a heavier weight than others, but they all destroy the person as a whole. When I was actively under the influence of witchcraft my whole world changed. I was battling demons that caused destructive thoughts, intense fear, depression, anxiety, and numerous other torments. All of these personality changes affected my ability to communicate, and I just shut down and isolated myself from the world. I want to give a better understanding of what witchcraft is and how it affects people. There is a perception that witchcraft can be good or evil. For example, white magic is considered good, and black magic evil. But this is not true. Anyone practicing witchcraft is doing so by the power of Satan, whether they believe that or not. The definition of witchcraft is the practice of magic, especially black magic; the use of spells, and the invocation of spirits. So witchcraft is evil that is used to hurt people. A spell is something wicked directed at another person or persons. Hexes, curses, and jinxes are spells at work. Witches also curse objects that they sell, give away as gifts, or leave behind to contaminate a person’s home, workplace, car etcetera. It is important to note that cursed objects attract demons. To invoke is to call upon, meaning witches deliberately call on evil spirits to carry out their wicked desires, ultimately unleashing demons on their victims. So demons are attached to these people, causing them all sorts of spiritual sicknesses. As a result, the person isolates themselves as a means of protection.
“I was tormented by the presence of the demonic day and night”Wendy
Catholics don’t spend time thinking about demons. It sure isn’t the topic every week during the sermon at Mass. I think many of them know demons exist, but they don’t know they have the power to attack people in such a physical and psychological way. It is also a stretch to believe people choose witchcraft. It is hard to think ill of other people. Or to believe they would willingly choose to hurt others by serving the devil. I know it didn’t occur to me until it happened to me. A person I trusted and thought was my friend called on demons to attack, oppress, and haunt me. She gave me religious items that were cursed and went to great lengths to destroy my life. I saw and heard things that were not of this world, and I was tormented by the presence of the demonic day and night, which caused incredible fear.
Once I knew she was a witch, I wondered who else could be a witch and thought, what if they want to hurt me too? Witchcraft forced me into seclusion. I went from being a joyful outgoing person who trusted others, to one who was suspicious of everyone around me. So isolation was a direct result of the spiritual attacks perpetrated against me. I lived my life the best way I could under the circumstances, but I didn’t know who I could trust, so I disconnected from everything except God. Fear ultimately caused the isolation, and the isolation increased the oppression, intensified the depression, and eventually caused deep loneliness to form. So you can see how all of these different afflictions from the demonic damage a person in every possible way. While the attacks are happening, the person won’t have the mental ability to make these connections because they are so affected by the demonic. There is just too much confusion that blurs the person’s ability to see things distinctly. That is why this information is so important to share. It will give the victim a model or map, a picture if you will, that can help those being attacked better understand how the devil and his demons are affecting their lives. It gives them an advantage over the enemy because once they can decipher the problem, they can seek help, enter into the battle, and begin the healing process.
Once I was freed from the attacks, Jesus slowly began to reveal the hidden benefits behind them. I know that sounds strange, but I am going to explain. A spiritual attack changes a person, and it is automatically assumed that those changes are bad. But that is not the case. There is, of course, a great deal of damage that needs to be healed. And that will take time and effort. But it is important to know that the Lord allows suffering for many reasons. One is for spiritual growth. And that growth always brings the person to a greater love for God. It has been years since I was attacked, and that battle impacted my life in ways I wish it hadn’t. Certain things remain as a result, and I don’t know if they will ever leave me. But it is through suffering that a person innately turns away from the world and toward God. Every suffering that I experienced elevated my heart and mind to God. In sorrow, I ran to Jesus. In fear, I turned to Him, and in isolation, I called out to the Lord.
When someone feels alone, as if they have no one, that is when they turn to God. So, you can see that isolation creates a deeper bond between the tortured soul and God. No human person can help these people other than a priest performing his sacramental duties and guiding the soul through such darkness. All they have is God and His Church. This path of suffering, isolation, and overwhelming oppression is allowed by God, initiated and carried out by the devil, and transformed into something beautiful by Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. That makes every second of suffering worth it. So, although these sufferings seem unbearable, knowing that the Lord is using them to bring about a greater intimacy with Him brings hope and encouragement to the victim.
