Berna and I grew up in the Roman Catholic religion. Back in those days, exorcism was defined by the Catholic Church this way:
“When the Church asks publicly and authoritatively in the name of Jesus Christ that a person or object be protected against the power of the Evil One and withdrawn from his dominion, it is called exorcism.”
Or, to put it in plain, simple language, We need to be protected against evil spirits, the devil. (Or “Satan,” if you like.)
Do you believe that? Here’s Spirit:
Let us begin our talk today with this: The Devil is a myth created by the human desire to project “evil” onto an outside force.
The “evil” we speak of here is the failure of humans to live the law of love. What does that mean? Simply, it means any thought, word, or deed not coming from love can be described as evil.
But this evil is not a powerful entity, as humans love to portray it—generally as the devil or Satan. You are simply projecting your own failure to be loving onto a mystical, outside force. Can you see the futility of that?
There is no need for exorcism. There is no need to banish Satan from your world, from your lives.

Hi John! I have to share a dream I had, well recently, and one I had repetitively in the 90’s. The one I had in the 90’s was myself levitating and could not speak coherently, as I would banish it in the name of Christ, as if possessed. Fighting in a type of hell with swords, too. Obviously, it did not work. At that time, paranormal things happened. I did a healing on my Mom who had mental issues and whatever was attached to her, left her and came after me. She became clear and coherent. It was the best lesson I ever learned, for anything dark was a catalyst for me to really see light. Ultimately, these beings are not real, however, we are creators and they have been humanly created so an illusion to someone can be a real experience to another. (those vibrating lower energy can match the frequency of their conscious or subconscious belief systems, that is why many people do work on themselves) A healer said to me at the time, be love. Raise your frequency & nothing lower can match that. The recent dream, I was being taunted by something negative and I began to banish in the name of Christ again, and it did not stop when I remembered I had a switch on my Self. I switched it on, and I beamed a blinding light so bright that this entity just disappeared. So, I woke up and realized, calling for Christ to do it for me is not what Jesus meant, I must be like Christ. I AM Christ, however you want to look at it in religious terms. Lesson learned. Love love love!
Thanks very much for sharing your dream, and for your thoughtful comments.
As you said,“…I beamed a blinding light so bright that this entity just disappeared.”
A Course in Miracles says when you take your attention from “evil,” it simply vanishes, as if it never existed.
