TOM: I can tell you what these things are most of the time. Of course everybody is an individual. But most of the time what's going on is a person has fear inside. They tend to be a fearful person. And if that fear grows to the point where they have difficulty dealing with it, then they will often begin to manifest that fear into a being. They actually create it. You can think of it as a thought form. They actually create a being out of their fear. They create 'something.' And that 'something' then inhabits them and often will intimidate them. Often they hear voices. They feel like there are things crawling under their skin. They will have all sorts of physical things like their hair is standing up, or that they can't sleep very well because it keeps them awake. There's a long list of symptoms of this thing. But what it is, is their own fear. Their own fear manifested into something that now comes back and does things to them physically that frightens them. These symptoms gives them more fear. Which makes this thing stronger and bigger which then scares them more. That gives them more fear which just makes it bigger, which scares them more. This cycle continues to a downward spiral to where they just can't function anymore.
I've talked to dozens of people who have this. Often they feel like they have been possessed, or invaded, by some outside being. Because they don't identify this thing as themselves, they feel like some other entity has come and is living in their body. It is kind of a parasite that is sucking energy out of them. And this is the way they visualize it. They believe that they're under attack from some non-physical being that is in their system. And though that can rarely, occasionally, can be the case I'd say that 90% of the time – 99% of the time – when I have people tell me, "I have this non-physical being that is terrorizing me. How do I get rid of it?" I almost always find that their own fear is the source of the being. And I go to see, and my first thought is, "Oh yeah, there's the being. I see it." And I'll get rid of it, and it comes right back. And I get rid of it, and it comes right back. And the more I work on it, the more I realize that it is being self-generated. It is not really something from the outside.
So how do you work somebody out of something like that? You have to find some ray of positiveness in that person's life – something that is good. And you try to work with the positive and pump as much positive into it as you can. That will give them some courage to take the next positive step and let some of the negative go. Just realizing that they have crated this monster, this being, this thing that they're dealing with is often part of the solution. When they realize that it is not something from the outside of them, but something that they have the ability to let go of, will give them some energy to let go of it.
But like all fears when you start to let go of it and disown it, the fear will fight back. The fear will get doubly frightful and doubly scary. And every time you try to get rid of a fear, that fear will puff itself up, roar, show you its fangs, and do everything it can to make you stop trying to get rid of it. That's the nature of fear. It fights back. But that just means you have to redouble your efforts to get rid of it. Stop giving it energy. Stop feeling sorry about it. Stop feeling sorry for yourself. Don't feel like, "Why me?" Because all that gives fear energy. Start putting energy into the positive. Now, that's an easy thing to say, and a hard thing to do if you happen to be in that situation.
