I have been fascinated about the paranormal my entire life, and this fascination has not waned. Recently, I have begun to think about possession. Specifically, what does one experience first hand when they become possessed? There is little information about the topic as quite a many people who have had the experience aren't very forthcoming about it; and for good reason.

Do we feel as if possession is becoming a bit more common place? Like that whole bath salts fiasco; that seems like demonic possession to me.

I would like for all of us to share all that we can find or currently know about regarding the topic. Through articles, videos, personal experiences, whatever. As far as personal experiences go, it can be second hand information as well; as long as you can trust the person who gave it. And while I specifically singled out first hand experiences of being possessed, this topic is devoted to the subject in it's entirety; so go ahead and post anything you know.

I'll go first - ANY VIDEOS POSTED HERE COULD BE VERY DISTURBING; VIEWER DISCRETION IS ADVISED.

Praise be to Allah.
Firstly:

Yes, it is possible for jinn to possess humans. Allah says in His Book (Interpretation of the meaning):

“Those who eat riba [usury] will not stand (on the Day of Resurrection) except like the standing of a person beaten by shaytan leading him to insanity.” [2:275]

Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyah (may Allah have mercy on him) said:

The fact that a jinni may enter the body of a human is proven by the consensus of the imams of Ahl al-Sunnah wa’l-Jama’ah (the larger body of Muslims who are upon the prophetic traditions). Allah says (interpretation of the meaning):

“Those who eat riba [usury] will not stand (on the Day of Resurrection) except like the standing of a person beaten by shaytan leading him to insanity.” [2:275]

… and in al-Saheeh it is narrated from the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) that “The Shaytan flows through the son of Adam like blood.” End quote. Majmoo’ al-Fatawa.

Secondly:

Possession is a kind of sickness. If a person who has this sickness is rational, then he has the choice and he will be brought to account for his words and actions. But if this sickness has overwhelmed him to the point that he has lost his mind and free will, then he is like one who is insane and is not accountable. Hence in Arabic the word mass (possession) is used to refer to junoon (insanity). See Lisan al-‘Arab. But if he commits an act of aggression against another when he is insane and destroys his property, for example, then he must pay compensation for that. See: Zad al-Ma’ad.

I saved the following when I wrote it a while back.  I will copy and paste it here.  


Quote:A substantial part of my testimony in coming to Christ and ditching the atheistic naturalistic worldview I once had deals with my long term experience with this phenomenon(sleep paralysis).  I can say that it is supernatural and completely demonic without question.  I first began to experience these late night visitations, haunting's back in 2005 and they happened to me on a regular basis for over half a dozen years.  I kept these experiences to myself knowing that sharing them would likely only result in doubt...  

The first night this ever happened to me was terrifying.  I was laying in bed with a heightened sense of dread, because of a movie I had seen a couple nights prior.  It was a movie that dealt with exorcisms...  I was lying in bed with this tremendous fear/anxiety, and after quite some time of lying in bed like this something finally happened, something that would cause me to lose sleep for months...  I felt something take over my body, open my mouth, and literally cause me to slowly rotate my head on the pillow 180 degrees from viewing one side of the room to the other.  It truly felt as if something possessed me.  I was terrified, and the rest of that night only followed with even greater terrors.  I remember laying in bed and all of a sudden feeling an evil presence around me, I tried get up and move, but I couldnt...  I was paralyzed as if some great weight was pinning me down...  I remember something caught my attention through the corner of my eye, I looked where my door was and saw this little girl staring at me...  I was scared beyond words.. It was at about this time where I knew I had engaged true evil, all this supernatural stuff that the movies depict became a reality for me then and there.  I was paralyzed and after I regained power over myself the girl was gone.  Later on in the night I remember my covers being slowly pulled down from where the end of the sheets were positioned on my chest.  I knew this was a haunting...  These sort of supernatural happenings began to plague my life regularly for years.  I would wake up and feel an evil presence, by the time I could sense it was often too late, I was already paralyzed...  Often I would feel this heavy force, or weight mount on my bed and you could feel and hear the springs to the bed buckle, the mattress would even cave in a little...  I started to experience very strange dreams, very vivid, would wake up to these bright orbs and what I can only describe as hieroglyphics spin really fast around my room.  

There were nights when I would wake up to visibly see some black figures standing right in front of me.  The first time this happened I woke up to this black shadow man standing over me, it was just pure black.  It stood over me and said my name, then a few other things.  Then it reached out what looked like a hand and poked me, forcing his finger into my abdomen in a really uncomfortable way...  

I even woke a couple of times to a black hovering mass shaped  like a cloud with what looked like black tentacles moving in a frenzy right in front of me.  I was paralyzed of course, couldn't move, and as strange as it sounds, it was growling at me, sort of like a dog...   I even believe a succubus engaged me one particular night in a dream, very weird experience, very bizarre.  My dream began from the exact place I fell asleep, but it was as if I didnt fall asleep at all.  They almost seem out of body, but not quite..  I got up and there was this women in the kitchen of my home...  It was too vivid to be an ordinary dream, after you experience this for so long you begin to be able to distinguish a normal dream from a supernaturally induced one.  There was a women in a dress in my kitchen, but it was no ordinary women.  Her skin was blue and her hand gestures attempted to seduce me and tell me to "come hither."  I knew it was demonic and resisted her gestures...  I remember she didnt speak a word, only used her hands...  She had a purse and I threw it out of my door and told it to leave...  Somehow it manipulated me to turn my back and when I did it grabbed me and whispered very hateful and malicious things into my ear...  It wanted to kill me.  I could barely get out the word "Jesus", but when I did the thing disintegrated into what appeared to be a charred corpse as if something had burned it...  Very weird....


  Not too long ago I woke up to what looked like the silhouette of a winged humanoid in my room.  Another night, a few years back,  I woke up to hearing footsteps coming up the stairs near my bed one time...  All of a sudden out of nowhere this force pushes my head into the pillow and said something to me, I cant remember what the exact words were, but it sounded like "there is a knife to your back."  The steps made me wonder if it was an actual robber, but by this time I had been haunted so many times I figured it was just another visitation.  Its very messed up, sometimes you can feel them breathe on you...  I was well acquainted with these sort of night time visitations for a little over half a dozen years...  

So I can say from personal experience that sleep paralysis is 100% demonic.  These visitations really only stopped after I picked up some books on deliverance, spiritual warfare, and etc and applied various things they taught me.  I had to renounce certain things...  They stopped almost completely when I truly started to live for Christ and renounce pornography and binge drinking, but rarely now they still happen... The doors I had opened had to be shut and sealed by the blood of Christ, the legal rights I had given the enemy had to be nullified...  Demons know who Christ is, it is the only name they fear, it is the only name they are subject to.  The only reason I can sleep at peace from these things is, because of my position in him. All the atheist talking points I once used, all the skeptical sentiment, all the rationalist/naturalistic ideas floating around in my head that there is no supernatural, that we simply return to the dirt when we die...  It all went up in a puff of smoke...  It all came down, because I came face to face with the stark reality that evil exists, and the only answer, the only solution that delivered me was Christ, just like the Bible says...

James 2:19Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)

19 Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble.

Luke 10:17-19Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)

17 And the seventy returned again with joy, saying, Lord, even the devils are subject unto us through thy name. 18 And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven. 19 Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.

Prov 15:7 The lips of the wise disperse knowledge: but the heart of the foolish doeth not so.

What a terrific post, Spektrall. Wow, I had no idea you experienced these things.

I had sleep paralysis several times in my youth as well, but I never saw anything as it happened. I'm glad you came out of that.

Interesting. I have been present at an exorcism and the priest told me that the demon always leaves the body through the mouth and now you tell me it entered through the mouth aswell. I see a pattern here..

Also movies and music always come with a demon attached. Have you seen the lectures of John Todd about this subject? He is a former worker for the Illuminati and a high ranked witch, he knew what he was talking about and got turned and went on Jesus side. He spilled the beans n how it all works;

Jazaakallaahu Khairan Akhee,

Mukhtasar Zaad al Ma'ad is one of my favorite books.  Here is a link to a PDF if you don't have it.  

Although this is a bit off topic, it is somewhat related; and that is that Muslims have been told how to protect themselves and their families from the evils of Jinn.   And all Praise is for Allaah.

I watched this series a couple of years ago and found it excellent:  Diary of an Exorcist: Case Studies of people affected by Jinns & Black Magic.   The brother is a Raaqi (Exorcist) Maashaa'Allaah and goes in depth on Jinn Possession and Ruqya' (Exorcisms).

Here is the first episode if anyone would like to know what Islam has to say about demon (Jinn) possession:

I've been involved and present with more than a few people being delivered from what I would call demonic oppression, as oppossed to posession.  A few in my own family room.  Not sure if there is much difference, but most people that I have witnessed or lead in deliverance were never aware and never experienced "mainfestation" until the spirit was called out through prayier in deliverance.

Most of the deliverance sessions I have witnessed were not planned.  Most of them started out as counseling sessions, that lead to prayer about a specific issue such as alchohol/drug addiction or behavior issues like vionlence/anger.   As those who are leading the prayer are guided by the Holy Spirit, it spontaneously leads to praying for deliverance.  This is when it potentially gets intense and if the person is truly under demonic oppression, the spirit may resist and begin to manifest in attempt to intimidate and shake the faith of those praying and the person being delivered.  

I've had to physically wrestle with a couple of people who when the spirit mainifested try to bring physical harm to the oppressed person.  We had one young gentlemen, who was being delivered from alcohol addiction who weighed about 160 lbs.  When the spirit manifested, the yound men keep lunging towards the fire that was burning in our family room fireplace, as the spirit was trying to bring physical harm to him. The spirit spoke through the young man's vocal chords.  The voice was not supernatural but was a distorted version of the man's voice, something he would physically be able to replicate though not his normal voice.  

Whenever the name of Jesus would be spoken in prayer by my wife or myself, the spirit voiced his displeasure and would try to claim that young man belonged to him.  According to scripture we spoke by the authority that Jesus gives to all believers and reminded the spirit that the young man had submitted himself to Christ and that he was bought by the blood of Jesus. The spirit would try to interupt us by lashing out physically through the young man's body when we did this. 

I am 6'3" 225 lbs, in decent shape and it took every bit of strength I had to keep the young men away from the fireplace, until the spirit finally fled.  I do not remember how long it took but I'm sure it was probably not as long as it seemed at the time.  When the spirit finally left, the young men collapsed into a sleep like state.  When he woke the next morning he was completely unaware of what had happened.   He just knew he was physically sore all over, like someone who works out to hard at the gym too soon and he had some brush burns on his knees and elbows.  Mentally he was a little disoriented, but was very curious about what had happened.  

He remembered some of the counseling and us starting to pray for him but does not remember anything after the spirit began manifesting.  He was a different person after that though.  Were up to that point he was not always following through with the counsel we gave him and had many setbacks and incidences, after that night we observed continual growth and change for the good.  Today he alcohol free, is a husband and father and volunteers as a youth leader at his Church. 

Anyways, before that night nobody including his closest frineds and family would have ever thought he was "demon posessed".  They all just knew he had a serious alcohol problem.  But that one night of deliverance was a definite turning point in his life and he was truly a new man after that night. 

I have other stories, but this is one of my personal favorites to share.
