Exorcist Diary #90: Indigestion or Demons?
Updated: Aug 16
We began the session and, within about 20 minutes, the afflicted person said her stomach started to hurt. She normally does not have stomach problems. I gave her a little cup with some exorcized olive oil to drink. She had quite a reaction and said it burned all the way down. Then her stomach pain went away. At other times, the person will start to retch, apparently vomiting up some evil.
Demons often attack the head and/or the stomach, especially when they are cornered and suffering due to the exorcism prayers. Humans are particularly vulnerable in both places and the demons exploit our weaknesses. These demonic effects are temporary and typically not severe, but they can be distressing.
One of the ways our gifted team members know that demons are present is that they themselves quickly have a headache and a feeling of nausea when the afflicted person enters the room-- the stronger the demonic presence, the stronger the symptoms. In a really bad case, the gifted person can hardly stand being in the same room.
We have to be careful with physical symptoms and our default is to assume a natural cause and thus a natural treatment. But sometimes, it is obvious that the cause is preternatural.
