SYMPTOMS OF BEING POSSESSED
So far we have discussed the phenomenon of demonic possession. A person will be said to be demonically possessed when an evil spirit exploits some of his weakness, sneaks into his body and bring him under its total control. Some of the symptoms of demonic possession may be similar to those of mental disorders. I have mentioned about the way to avoid confusion in this regard in my previous post. The most prominent symptoms of being demonically possessed include: Talking in unfamiliar languages Showing a dual personality Showing superhuman strength Apart from these there are quite a few symptoms which may differ from person to person. I have mentioned the commonly occurring ones below: A strong urge to do evil A strong dislike towards religious texts Aversion towards eating or drinking things on which Quranic verses have been read and blown. Headaches while reciting Holy texts Changes in personality Fatigue- because the indwelling spirit saps the energy for its own sustenance Suicidal tendencies Experiencing strangulation Strange sensations of being touched Nausea on seeing food Behavior contrary to one’s nature Sleep paralysis Glazed look in the eyes Moaning during sleep Hearing one’s name being called Hearing shrieks Seeing frightening faces and forms of ghosts Having thoughts which are quite unlikely of you Having a feeling that you are being controlled by someone else Feeling as if someone is pressurizing you to do certain acts Suddenly becoming isolated and trying to avoid people Blackouts in memory Multiple voices coming from the same person simultaneously Feeling totally disconnected with yourself Experiencing distractions whenever you try doing something beneficial for yourself. Irrational fear Sleeping well but getting up in the morning with a drained feeling If a person experiences any of the above mentioned symptoms then it is time to take remedial measures. As the phrase goes ‘A stitch in time saves nine’. A timely action can help the target to curb the problem at the onset. This is because the longer the evil spirit manages to survive within the target’s body, the stronger will it become.
