paranormal and psychology

Yes indeed demons can influence your behavior and push you toward addiction . But psychologists do not recognize and do not accept any demonic explanation . It is true that 99% of the paranormal cases do have psychological and behavioral disorders , but there are cases which demonic and the paranormal is the only explanation .

the key things for most demons is the destruction of the family unity and relationship that is the first priority

for them , then bring you close to alcohol ,drugs, swearing anger anxiety depression so you lose those 

who are around you and who can support you so the demon can isolate you and it will be easy to get attached 

as it comes in different stages from semi to partial to full attachment , your prayer is a vital key to stop him and keep

them at bay, them as they are work as a legion most of the time and not just one demon. 

The Bible is clear about the spiritual battle around us. Paul writes, “For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms” (Eph. 6:12 NIV). But in the heat of the moment, when tensions rise and feelings get hurt, sometimes I forget about those unseen forces who are trying to destroy what God has established.

Maybe you feel as if your marriage is under attack. Here are a few things you can do to invite God’s relief and healing:

  1. Don’t underestimate the enemy and his tactics. When your marriage seems in peril, it’s easy to start focusing on the ways your spouse is letting you down or you are falling short. Remember that God has put the two of you on the same team, and it’s Satan that wants to pull you apart. first peter 5;8 states it vividly: “Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour” (NIV). If it feels like your marriage is being devoured, recognize you’re under attack and run to God for help and deliverance.
  2. This one may seem obvious, but if you’re experiencing marital challenges, talk to God about them. As you pray for your spouse, confess your failures, and tell the Lord about the hurt you’re experiencing, you invite His presence and power into your relationship.
  3. Seek support.After one emotional blowout, my husband called a pastor at our church and asked if he would pray with us. After church, this man—who has been married longer than we have and certainly understands our struggle prayed for God’s peace to reign in our relationship and home. Like Aaron and Hur lifting Moses’ arms during an important battle (EX 17; 12), this man lifted us up when we were exhausted and at the end of our own resources.
  4. Focus on truth.During those tense days, Kevin and I clung to the truth that God had brought us together in this covenant called marriage and that He would sustain us. His desire was for us to love each other well and join in His kingdom work together. A friend says that during stressful times in her marriage, she focuses on who God has called her to be: someone who prays for her spouse, forgives, exhibits the fruit of the Spirit, and has the mind of faithful.

In science the topic or the relationship and demons take a different road and that of arrogance of the psychologist who don’t believe in God, demons and angels and call them Alien and laugh about it in school. and when they die their families bury them with the faithful and in our graveyards, and they shouldn’t do that .Those unbelievers should be burned or their body should go to science and have no right to be buried among the faithful or in Christian, Muslim or Jewish  graveyards.

 Many of those unbelievers psychologists say that expression is a residue of the absurd belief during the Middle Ages that mental illness is caused by evil spirits that justified burning the afflicted person at the stake. (Remember Joan of Arc?)

It is true that many of these paranormal incidents related to psychological problems but not all, and some of the incidents does indeed due to demonic attachments.

Psychology calls us ignorant because we have an open mind and we believe in God and science deals with the body and material but forget the spiritual side and the unconscious mind. And those so called scientists, pseudo scientists  they go on and say ,even maliciously unscientific, portrayal of psychiatric symptoms is an appalling disservice to all our patients who struggle with a potentially disabling neuropsychiatric disorder. Regrettably, some religious entities still propagate the fallacy of possession by an evil spirit and call for exorcism of bizarre behaviors sometimes associated with psychosis. what is really needed is an exorcism of unscientific and harmful misconceptions that mental illness is the nefarious work of Beelzebub or Lucifer.
I can understand how ignorance about the neurological basis of unusual delusions and behavior can trigger absurd religious explanations for their cause. Sometimes, brain pathology can have strange clinical manifestations that are beyond the ken of the average layperson, which invites metaphysical, religious, or philosophical explanation. Here are examples of neuropsychiatric symptoms in the category of “very unusual” that might summon a demonic malfeasance.

Some people complain of being possessed  delusional people who have a strong religious background might believe they are possessed by Satan himself. Some of my patients with psychotic depression believe this, expressing great guilt and anguish about being doomed to go to Hell. So lets go and study the science of paranormal which that I agree with 100%.

Patients with schizophrenia often think they are under the control of an “alien force” that shapes their behavior, feelings, and thoughts (a Schneiderian first-rank symptom). In a 2012 editorial, I proposed that this “alien intruder” is the unintegrated right hemispheric consciousness, and that disintegration of the 200 million inter-hemispheric white matter fibers of the corpus callosum might be the cause of the loss of integration of the right hemisphere into the dominant left hemisphere.

Some people attribute external control on their lives to a government agency, a foreign country, or a spiteful neighbor; others believe it is the work of evil spirits. Whereas the foundation of the delusion is brain pathology, the content of the delusion is colored by the affected person’s cultural and religious background.

Apotemnophilia is an  A neurologic disorder that manifests in a bizarre clinical symptom that invites faulty explanation: A person demands amputation of a leg because “it doesn’t belong to my body. The cause of this strange and confusing disorder has been misinterpreted as a paraphilia, a desire by the affected person to achieve greater sexual satisfaction by having a stump. It was first reported in the September/October 1972 issue of the magazine Penthouse, where it was described as the motivation to heighten one’s sexual appeal because stumps can be sexually exciting to their partners.

It took many years of neurologic research to demonstrate that Apotemnophilia is caused by pathology in the parietal lobe, where the physical representation of the body is located. Incomplete neurodevelopment of the parietal lobe can cause a person to fail to recognize a leg as a “legitimate” part of his body, and he (she) then desperately seeks amputation of the so-called alien limb (see the description of xenomelia below) that is attached to his body.

When an affected person is asked to delineate the borders of an alien limb, he draws a line on the skin at the precise border between the alien limb and the rest of his body—where the amputation should take place. Requests for surgical amputation were adamantly denied when the disorder was thought to be a weird sexual practice, but elective amputation in the context of neuropsychopathology is seriously debated now—and has, in fact, been reported.5 The term “body impaired integrity disorder” has been proposed, but neurologists consider the disorder an example of xenomelia.

Xenomelia (‘alien limb syndrome’)  An odd neurologic disorder produced by brain pathology, in which a person has a sense of estrangement about 1 or more limbs. The disorder can be caused by a neurologic lesion such as tumor, Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease, hereditary diffuse leukoencephalopathy, demyelination disease, progressive dementia, corpus callosotomy, intracerebral hemorrhage, or thalamic degeneration.

So-called “alien hand syndrome,” or asomatognosia, is a widely recognized example of xenomelia, and is associated with medial frontal lobe damage.

Another variant of xenomelia is somatoparaphrenia, unawareness of a part of one’s body.7

Cotard syndrome a nihilistic delusion of the nonexistence or dissolution of a body part; in extreme form, the delusion of being dead or nonexistent.8 The syndrome sometimes occurs in the setting of severe depression. Research has shown an association with atrophy of the insula,9 which is responsible for internal proprioception (interoception).

Delusional misidentification syndrome A set of neuropsychiatric conditions in which a person misidentifies people, places, objects, or eve

Even today, many cultures still believe that unusual behavior that may be symptomatic of mental health problems is caused by spirit possession – especially in some less developed areas of the world where such beliefs are still important features of the local culture. Interestingly, beliefs about spirit possession are not simply used to try and explain the effects of psychopathology-related experiences, but are also regularly used to control and coerce individuals. Some cases related to child trauma and sexual
