My Journey Out New Age Spiritualism – Laura Maxwell’s Story.

As a spiritual counsellor, I’m honoured my work is shared worldwide via satellite TV, radio, books, magazines and so on. My mother and I were taught Lucifer is god when involved in new age spiritualism. I now expose the Globalist Agenda – the elite NWO cabal, from my inside knowledge of Luciferianism and Theosophy.

As my story was recently published in Premier Christianity I’m resharing this previous post for those new to my blog. It’s a great honour to be featured in the UK’s leading Christian magazine and I am so grateful to God for this opportunity to share His love and power with others.

My Journey Out New Age Spiritualism – Laura Maxwell’s Story.

 (Taken from the About page).

We sincerely hope to humbly contribute to the journeys of those on a spiritual quest!

Do you enjoy ghost hunting, spirit communication or the paranormal? Maybe you explore esoteric or metaphysical interests, eastern mystical practices, or evolving spiritualities?

Perhaps you follow an ancient path based on Paganism? Do you practice Magick, Wicca, Neo-New Age, or the Occult?

As an open-minded seeker of truth, please consider hearing from myself and others steeped in such lifestyles. Discover secrets we experienced via supernatural realms and where it eventually led us.

When I was a Spiritualist, I was taught the New Age agenda – to recruit masses globally to Luciferianism and the New World Order. In those days, I fully agreed with such plans. Now, I’m aware of the truth behind it all! As supernatural whistleblowers, we expose inside secrets from top spiritual leaders.

Silence is consent. If you care, please share.

Silence is consent. If you care, please share.

Unfortunately, those like us are not often seen in the popular media. The world tends only to hear the one point of view, which is of course biased reporting! A spiritual form of propaganda is occurring. Even within scientific communities, they claim to portray ALL theories of any topic of debate. But with ‘spirit communication’, our ‘theory’ is rarely given air time!

You may suspect this is a conspiracy theory, so please use your critical thinking skills. Research online for hard evidence to back up our claims!

Truth

ೋƸ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒೋ

In 1996, I began to disclose my own private experiences. From 2008, I’ve been very privileged to share regularly on satellite TV and radio shows, broadcast over Europe and USA. Some of them are included in the playlist below.

The below interviews on Truth Frequency Radio, including The Kev Baker Show and other shows remain a few of my personal favourites. Namely because they air on Truth Frequency Radio – a very popular alternative network with a large global following of spiritual seekers.

Some of my TV interviews were requested by and aired on various Christian and secular TV channels across Asia, Russia, Pakistan, Ukraine, Australia, New Zealand, etc.

I also host a weekly talk show on Eternal Radio. On ‘The Supernatural with Laura Maxwell.’ I interview international guests, who share their dramatic true stories, eg, Ex Mediums, Ex Psychics, Ex Witches, Ex Pagans, etc. Some of them are authors and some have also shared their stories on TV.

My story has been featured in various Christian, secular and Spiritualist magazine articles, newspapers, a site of the leading Occult awareness ministry of 30 years in the UK, one of the leading Occult awareness sites in USA, other well known ministry websites and blogs. (Most of these people listed, have appeared on TV – please see the links).

Other overseas ministries have translated it into, for example, Croatian, Danish, Hindi, Spanish and Portuguese for magazines and TV. See link for translations.

In 2013, it was included in two new school books, now being used in secular schools across Australia and New Zealand.

It was an honour when EX Satanist, Jeff Harshbarger, asked me to write a chapter for his 2nd book ‘Dancing With The Devil,’ published in USA, by Charisma House, 2012. (I wrote a review for his first book). Jeff has been a guest on many Christian TV and radio programs in the USA and beyond.

Another well known US preacher and TV evangelist is including my testimony in a new book, due to be published in late 2016. (Details here, once released).

It’s also been an honour to be a guest speaker in churches, venues & conferences across the UK, or radio stations around the world.

During which, I share my testimony, or teach about the New Age, Occult or also the ancient spiritual roots of Halloween.

Plus I expose evil crimes committed by some Satanic and occultic groups on Halloween. (See my interviews with Ex Satanists over the years).

Laura Maxwell’s Story.

‘What New Age Spiritualism Means To Me Now.’

Supernatural phenomena interested me since childhood. I loved reading children’s books containing ‘ghost stories’, or watching TV programs about ‘ghosts’. If Harry Potter had been written then, I’m sure it would have been one of my favourites.

A few psychic episodes as a child added to the intrigue I felt. My mother’s uncle lead a Spiritualist Church and was also high up in Freemasonry. Mum had also experienced psychic events since her childhood, but didn’t pursue it seriously until later. By the time I began Secondary School, she felt ready to explore further. Once, when walking her dogs in the park, a Medium approached. He saw her potential as a Medium and invited her to a local Spiritualist Church in Glasgow, Scotland.

Very quickly, Mum became totally engrossed by the supernatural. As a new member of the Spiritualist Church, she attended Sunday services, mid week psychic development groups, Yoga classes, etc. She shared everything she learned with me. I also became fascinated. Her heart’s desire was to train in Mediumship. The other Mediums encouraged this, asking her to join an Open Circle and to meditate with them to channel ‘spirits of the deceased’. Mum was keen to develop her abilities of Clairvoyance, Clairaudience and Clairsentience and to learn from other Mediums.

Every time Mum booked a Private Sitting for a Life Reading with a resident or visiting Medium, she’d buy a recording of the session and we’d listen to it later. It amazed me that a half-hour recording could contain so much explicit communication from alleged ‘spirits’. Specific facts were relayed about our lives, in minute detail. Precise names, places and dates were often given. It was obvious the Mediums weren’t charlatans, falling upon names by sheer chance. They accurately described the physical appearance, personalities and even repeated common phrases of our apparent dead relatives, as they conversed with spirit entities.

I also joined the Spiritualist Church in Glasgow. Mum and I devoured mystical books on Yoga, opening the chakras, Crystal Healing, Reincarnation, Alternative Therapies, etc. Attending New Age Centres and Psychic Fairs, we absorbed as much information as we could to help in our ‘spiritual enlightenment’. With our passion for environmental and conservation concerns, social justice and international peace, we gladly participated in attempting to heal people and animals, through either contact or distant psychic healing.

We also read books on positive thinking. A favourite was, ‘The Power of Positive Thinking’, by Norman Vincent Peale, a 33rd degree Free Mason, who also believed in Clairvoyance, claiming to see his dead father at meetings.

Going Deeper

Laura's season as a goth

Laura’s season as a goth

Eventually, we attended Transfiguration Sessions. Mum developed in the area of Automatic Writing. Mediums predicted I’d become an author on behalf of Spirit Guides and a Psychic Artist, drawing portraits of ‘dead relatives and Spirit Guides’ for clients. I very briefly experimented with Kirlian Photography; using infra red film I captured images of ectoplasm as it formed.

Over the next 10 – 15 years, we’d often hear of Mediums who could no longer control when spirits spoke to, or through them. Many Mediums had nervous breakdowns. Some attacked people claiming their Spirit Guides had forced them to, or were admitted to psychiatric wards.

We heard reports of ‘poltergeist activity’ in Medium’s homes. At first, we accepted explanations that mischievous or obnoxious spirits could sometimes come through and it was a potential hazard of the job. But when it happened to us, it became intolerable and impossible to function properly.

Our beloved friends, the other Psychics and Mediums, kindly tried, but failed to free our home from spirits. The spirits spoke to Mum constantly, giving her no rest, depriving her of sleep, attacking her physically, chapping loudly from within wardrobes, slamming all the doors, etc.

On one of the occasions when they forced her into a trance against her will, she was frying food. When she came out of trance, the kitchen was consumed by fire. I arrived home after the Fire Brigade had extinguished it, just before it spread to other rooms. We all realized Mum, our dogs and cats could have been killed. One afternoon, Mum’s elderly Aunt who had also visited Spiritualist Churches, felt invisible hands grab her and throw her down our stairs. Her wrist was broken. Another day, while approaching shops, I watched in horror as Mum was lifted from the ground and catapulted from the pavement, landing on the bonnet of a passing car. This particular incident happened more than once.

Hellish Encounters

Naturally, we decided to withdraw from Spiritualism and kindly asked our ‘Spirit Guides’ to leave. To our shock, they laughed and insulted us. They began to physically attack us. This was deeply perplexing, as they’d provided guidance and kindness for many years! It became obvious they’d clearly deceived us, pretending to be benevolent, when in reality they were wicked all along.

It dismayed us that all the Spiritualist Mediums and Psychics we knew and dearly loved, had clearly been deceived too. After all, it was they who had introduced us to those spirits. They’d also assumed such ‘Spirit Guides’ and ‘friends’ were genuine.

However, the biggest shock came when even our supposed ‘dead relatives’ turned against us too! They also mocked and hit us. The spirits warned we couldn’t leave the occult, as we had unknowingly granted them control from the first day we invited them into our lives! It became clear to Mum and I there was something dangerous and deceptive in Spiritualism and forms of spirit communication, if even the Mediums who had brought our fake ‘spirit friends’ to us had not discerned their true spiritual identity.

A Christian Encounter

‘You shall know the truth, and the truth shall set you free’, John 8:32

Susan, a Christian I’d met in a Psychology Tutorial, at university, invited me to her Pentecostal Church. She explained other Psychics who had experienced similar tragedies were set free from spiritual attacks when they accepted the Biblical Jesus Christ as their Saviour, (not the New Age false Christ).

I did feel an atmosphere and presence in her church I’d never known and I hungered for it. When they prayed for healing and spoke in tongues, I senses instantly they had a supernatural power, but I wasn’t sure what it was! To me, Jesus was just a Healer and Medium.

That night when I returned home, the spirits were furious that I’d visited the Pentecostal Church. I was sure they’d try to kill me. (To learn more of those few days, please watch my TV interviews!)

I cried out to God in sheer desperation. I asked if He was real, to please speak to me through a bible I found. I had a divine revelation the bible was totally true, so renouncing Spiritualism, I came to Jesus Christ of Nazareth. I received Him as my Saviour and asked Him to cleanse me from all sin. Finally, I had saw the light. I had found truth. I had found Love Himself! Much to my own surprise, I had become a Christian, something I thought I’d never do! Never say never folks!

The very next morning, a Romany Gypsy appeared at my door. I’d been thinking about her for hours and now there she stood! She said she had got born again and that Jesus had sent her to tell me I was now on the right path! I began attending the church I’d just visited.

A Darker Tragedy Strikes

Just a few months later, during my 2nd year at university, Mum’s health deteriorated & her ‘Spirit Guides’ became more violent and even threatened to control her and use her to kill people. Mum’s doctor couldn’t accept poltergeist activity and was sadly diagnosed as Schizophrenic. Mum was detained in a Psychiatric Hospital, much to the utter shock of my Mum and myself.

Although my Mum gave her heart to Jesus a few months later, the Pentecostal Church I’d joined had no experience at that point, of helping people like Mum. At that time, they didn’t have the Deliverance Ministry. As a baby Christian myself, I didn’t yet know there were Christians who could’ve cast those demons out of my Mum in Jesus Name. After months of heavy sedation, the psychiatrists discharged her, but when she returned home, she endured further harassment from spirits. Sadly, the church I belonged to didn’t yet have experience of casting demons out of homes or people.

My pastor was young and inexperienced. He assumed mum and I were just over imaginative or mentally ill. So, we received no help. To my utter shock and dismay, my mother committed suicide.

Although not rare for someone to do … over the past couple of decades I’ve heard of many around the world, affected by the New Age or Occult have been in psychiatric wards or killed themselves. Therefore, I feel it emphasizes the crucial importance for Christians to embrace the Deliverance Ministry, more commonly known as Exorcism, and become God’s instruments to release freedom to such tortured people in Jesus Name.

(Over the years as a Christian, I have been honoured and delighted that the Holy Spirit has used me to see people & homes be set free from demonic harassment/poltergeist type activity, etc). “Greater is He (Jesus), that is in you; than he (satan) that is in the world.”

My chains are gone!

Soon after, I found another Pentecostal Church. It was experienced in Deliverance prayer – casting out demons. The co-Pastor, visited my mum’s home, successfully cleansing it the first time they prayed. At the Name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, all the spirits left and never returned. Praise God! Later, I sold Mum’s home without worrying the new tenants would be harassed.

The Pentecostal Church I attend, doesn’t serve up dead religious traditions or control. Instead it’s lively, loving and joyful. Members are trained by the Holy Spirit to prophesy of the future. Minds and bodies are healed and other miracles, signs and wonders occur. Actually, in a couple of years I saw more people healed in Pentecostal Churches than I ever saw in over ten years at Spiritualist meetings.

Deception Exposed

When I became a Christian, even before I had read the Biblical warnings of the Occult in Deuteronomy chapter 18, I suddenly saw the truth. I instinctively realized what had happened. The missing piece of the jigsaw slipped into place. When our ‘dead relatives and Spirit Guides’ began to attack us, it indicated those lying evil spirits had deceived us, merely impersonating our loved ones. It made complete sense when Christians explained from the bible, it’s impossible for dead souls to return to talk with us, as they remain in heaven or hell for eternity.

Also, the bible describes spirits are evil ‘fallen angels,’ or demons. They’ve existed since before creation. They possess vast psychic knowledge of our families & historical figures down the generations. Like ‘shape shifters’ from movies, they can easily disguise their evil form to pose as our ‘deceased family,’ to mimic ‘Spirit Guides,’ or any famous celebrity that ever lived. With their supernatural powers they can perform many false miracles. Through hypnosis etc, they can even produce false visions of your ‘former lives’.

They are masters of disguise. The Bible says that entities who work through Witches, Mediums, Ghost Hunters, etc, are called ‘familiar spirits’. They are psychic and very familiar with how all your ancestors looked and spoke, as they were on the earth at the same time. Thus, these entities can impersonate them perfectly. The Hebrew word for familiar spirits actually translates as ‘demon,’ evil spirit.

This is emphasised in passages such as 2 Corinthians 11 to 14 : “And no wonder! For Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light. It is not surprising then, if his servants masquerade as servants of righteousness. Their end will be what their actions deserve.” The evil spirits working through Spiritualism, Ghost Hunting, etc, are evil demons. They serve Satan to deceive precious Mediums and others, appearing as dead relatives, Spirit Guides, ascended masters, goddesses, Reiki healing guides, aliens, fairies and so on. (Please see my article on how to ‘Test The Spirits’, or watch my TV programs on this crucial topic.)

The counterfeit nature of spirits makes sense, because many top Mediums even claim that Lucifer is god and the source of all psychic powers! (Benjamine Creme, David Spangler, Madam Helena Blavatsky, etc). They believe Lucifer is still an angel of light; god; the Saviour, and that he did not fall and become Satan, as the Bible states. Thus, Luciferianism is one of the roots of the New Age and Spiritualism. Madam Helena Blavatsky, a self proclaimed Luciferian Medium, was called the ‘mother of the New Age movement’. (Please see my article or watch my TV programs on this topic.)

Before I left the Occult, I was unaware the Bible lovingly advises in 1 John 4 verse 1 to 3 : “Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God … every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is of God, and every spirit that does not confess that Jesus has come in the flesh is not of God … And this is the spirit of the Antichrist …”

Please see my note with directions on how to Test The Spirits, in the menu bar at the top. I’ve known countless numbers who have challenged Guides and other spirits, to show their true identity, in Jesus Christ’s name. Often they scream as they reveal their true evil form.

A Crucial Observation

Since I left Spiritualism and became a Christian, I have never been contacted by any spirit claiming to be a ‘dead relative’ or ‘Spirit Guide’! All such supernatural activity stopped, when I found the truth, that they were demons impersonating family or spiritual beings! You’d think, if they were truly real, they’d still try to ‘contact’ me!

Sharing With Others

About Jesus

When a Spiritualist, I’d regarded Jesus as just a cosmic force; part of the universal consciousness, a reincarnation of another god or great Healing Medium. Since my conversion in 1994, I’ve met, spoken to & read of many Ex Psychics, Ex Gypsies, Ex Mediums, Ex Witches, Ex Luciferians, and even Ex Satanists. They all discovered the entities of their ‘Spirit Guides’, ‘dead relatives’ or ‘goddesses’, were not who they claimed to be. These people were also set free from demonic attack after receiving Christ into their lives & receiving His overwhelming love and deliverance into spiritual freedom, (Exorcism).

Two successful Glasgow Mediums, Sadie Bryce and Geordie Aitken also became Christians. Sadie went to the same Spiritualist Church I did. She spoke of her occult past in BBC programs and an audio recording. Paul Watson wrote a book detailing Geordie’s experience. As Christians, Sadie and I wrote to each other and I met Geordie several times, discovering we all had been misled by deceiving spirits in the same ways. Geordie himself lost friends to demonically induced suicide. He spoke on my behalf at my mum’s funeral.

Jesus Christ healed me of a phobia of heights and physical conditions including Fibromyalgia and migraine headaches. He has given me joy and peace I simply never knew existed. His very tangible Presence of pure love is more real than any powerful encounter I experienced within Spiritualism, New Age or Mystical practises. I am forever grateful to Him for transforming my life and I give Him all the glory.

The Supernatural with Laura Maxwell, on Eternal Radio.

The Supernatural with Laura Maxwell, on Eternal Radio available on tunein.com

I now host a weekly show on Eternal Radio, called ‘The Supernatural with Laura Maxwell,’

On it, I interview international guests, who share their dramatic true conversion stories. My guests include former Mediums, Psychics, Witches, Pagans, Satanists and so on.

Some of them are authors or have shared their stories on TV and radio.

Since 2008, I’ve shared my life story, on satellite TV, radio, in conferences and churches. I also write for magazines. I don’t receive payment for this. I’m delighted and blessed to hear from people worldwide. They share they’ve also been saved out of the New Age and Occult – by the transforming, mighty power of our loving Saviour and Friend, the Lord Jesus Christ. Some say it was my testimony that helped lead them to Jesus. Hallelujah!

A Final Word

I continuously hear from more people who are turning away from Spiritualist Meetings, Tarot Card Parties, Yoga, Meditation, Reiki and all other spirit empowered practises.

A few years ago, I completed a testimony-based novel, containing some detail of events Mum, our friends and I experienced within the occult.

It also contains some wonderful encounters with Jesus and angels, very different from what we experienced in Spiritualism.

As it’s self published, it’s only available directly from me, but should be on Amazon, by mid 2017!

If you’d like to order a copy of my book A Spiritual Quest,  please email my Personal Assistant on ourspiritualquest@hotmail.com

Residual Energy And Haunts by Exorcist Mark Hunnemann.

 

Mark Hunnemann, my friend, Deliverance Minister and frequent Radio Guest provides analysis of a very common, but mostly unexamined, speculative theory in the paranormal community: The Theory of Residual Haunts and Residual Energies.

Mark Hunnemann Energies 1

If you are not familiar with this concept, then I gently encourage you to become aware of it. This notion is misleading and harming millions, and causing folks to mis-identify demonic activity as merely natural energy doing ‘weird’ things.

cursed haunted defiled occult EVP Ouija energies

In the below video series, Mark Hunnemann, provides reasons for why residual energy should be seen as demonic.

“For years I have observed how internationally popular the notion of residual energy/haunts has become. However, to my knowledge, there has been no sustained response to it. I am convinced that it is unscientific, and is causing immense damage. So, I have begun a series in which this theory will be comprehensively scrutinized. Everybody, especially Christians, needs to be aware of this issue because it has enormous, practical ramifications. (It is also an expression of the New Age worldview). Most recently, it was shown to be contrary to Thermodynamics,” Mark Hunnemann.

Please See Mark’s Video PlayList Below:

Mark has a heart for this type of ministry, where he sheds a light on the deceptions of the enemy concerning the paranormal. He is the author of “Seeing Ghosts Through God’s Eyes”, where he shows the deception behind theories such as earthbound spirits, in light of scripture.

Please also listen to our two radio series, where myself, Laura Maxwellinterviewed Mark on such topics: PlayList One and PlayList Two.

As well as her testimony, Dana shared insights on the Witch of Endor incident, The vision of Moses and Elijah during the Transfiguration of Jesus on The Mount, the rich man and Lazarus of Luke 16 as well as the confusion of the disciples assuming Jesus was a ‘ghost’ as He walked on the water.

Lastly, she shared some keen and very insightful nuggets of truth concerning the ‘testing of spirits in Jesus’ name.’

You can hear the first two interviews with Dana on the below video playlist. Part three will be added soon!

Many thanks to all of our guests, our listeners and all at Eternal Radio for being a part of this show for the past 3+ years. We give praise to God for those who were saved, healed, or set free from demons through these shows.

Ex-Médium Umbandista: Meu Testemunho – Ivani Greppi.

Ivani Greppi – Meu testemunho: Ex-médium Umbandista

Ivani Greppi

 

“No demais, irmãos meus, fortalecei-vos no Senhor e na força do seu poder. Revesti-vos de toda armadura de Deus, para que possais estar firmes contra as astutas ciladas do diabo” (Efésios 6:10-11).

PREFÁCIO

“O meu povo foi destruído, por falta de conhecimento” (Oséias 4:6).

Vinte e um anos atrás, um pastor missionário do Brasil visitou a Gráfica Pyramid que pertencia aos meus pais em Kissimmee, Flórida. Deus usou esse evento casual—uma simples encomenda de cartão de visitas—para nos libertar de gerações de práticas ocultas. Este é um resumo do que minha familia e eu passamos durante décadas de enganos por Satanás através da prática do espiritismo.

Meus pais, irmã, e eu nascemos no Brasil. Nossos antepassados Europeus, trouxeram com eles ao Novo Mundo, crenças e rituais ocultos praticado durante gerações antes deles. Eu me tornei uma médium espírita da quarta geração no Brasil.

Os avós paternos do meu pai vieram da Itália. Sua avó Siciliana era uma curandeira que usava poções, ervas e encantamentos para curar doenças, bem como danos espirituais causados por maldições e “mau-olhado”. O pai do meu pai, tinha fortes habilidades psíquicas. Quando menino, ele alertou seus pais sobre uma raposa que tinha matado todos porquinhos do chiqueiro. Mas quando seus pais foram verificar, os porquinhos mamavam intactos ao lado da porca. Mais tarde, a cena repetiu, no entanto, desta vez, a familia testemunhou a raposa em fuga com um porquinho pendurado em sua mandíbula, depois de ter matado toda a ninhada como meu avô previu. Uma das visões do meu avô até salvou a vida de um homem que desapareceu depois que seu cavalo voltou para casa sózinho. Ele descreveu com precisão a área onde o homem ficou ferido depois que uma cascavel assustou seu cavalo.

Os antepassados de minha mãe, imigraram para o Brasil da Espanha. Todos praticavam espiritismo. Minha bisavó, avó e avô maternos eram médiuns. Familiares, vizinhos e amigos traziam seus filhos doentes á casa deles para serem benzidos, ou para receber passes de energia espiritual. As curas incluiam problemas espirituais, febre, mau-olhado, e até mesmos vermes intestinais. Chás, banho de defeza, defumação, e velas acesas em homenagem a guias espirituais e anjos da guarda era recomendado para ajudar nas curas.

O Evangelho Segundo o Espiritismo, por Allan Kardec era nossa “biblia”. Este educador Francês nos anos 1800, codificou o espiritismo. Uma de suas missões foi esclarecer os ensinamentos de Jesus “incorretamente” traduzidos na Biblia. Nós acreditávamos em reencarnação e vivíamos em comunhão com espíritos em relação ao mundo corpóreo através da mantra de Kardec: “Nascer, morrer, renascer ainda e progredir sempre, tal é a lei.”

Nós diziamos que éramos Católicos, mas apenas para fins tradicionais: Casamentos, batismo das crianças, e missas de sétimo dia para os mortos. Na realidade, nós rejeitávamos a religião tradicional, e não acreditávamos no céu ou inferno. Crentes que iam de porta-a-porta para evangelizar não eram bem vindos. Quando eles paravam no nosso portão batendo palmas, anunciando sua presença, eram desprezados.

Quando voltei para viver no Brasil com quatorze anos, fui doutrinada em um templo de Umbanda onde comecei meu desenvolvimento médium. Até a idade de 38 anos quando conheci o pastor Brasileiro nos Estados Unidos, nunca tinha lido a Biblia antes, muito menos ouvido falar sobre a Salvação eterna em Jesus Cristo. Nós não éramos malignos. Nós realmente acreditávamos que comunicação com os espiritos vinha de Deus. E nossas habilidades psíquicas, um dom Dele.

PARTE I

“Entre ti se não se achará quem faça passar pelo fogo o seu filho ou a sua filha, nem adivinhador, nem prognosticador, nem agoureiro, nem feiticeiro; Nem encantador, nem quem consulte um espirito adivinhador, nem mágico, nem quem consulte os mortos” (Deutoronômio 18:10-11).

          Tenho cinco anos de idade. Mais uma vez sou despertada de um sono inocente. O tipo de sono que só as crianças experimentam. Com olhos arregalados, olho para um mar de escuridão profunda. No vazio, alguem ou algo está pairando perto do nosso sofá-cama. Observando furiosamente. O medo arranha meu coração. Um calafrio percorre todo meu corpo. Com muito medo de piscar, e ao mesmo tempo aterrorizada para ver o que está por trás da escuridão, eu tento gritar. Sómente gemidos baixos escapam dos meus labios. O ar trava na minha garganta. Meus pulmões queimam por oxigênio. Estou morrendo? Minhas cordas vocais e musculos completamente paralizados. O único movimento possível é através das minhas palpebras: Piscando, apertando, arregalando.

Está mais perto agora. Ameaçador. Cruel. Hostil. Uma malignidade palpável enche a atmosféra. Enquanto eu luto com cadeias invisíveis sufocando-me, minha irmã se agita no sono. Escuto a respiração suave dela, e o pulsar de sangue batendo contra meus tímpanos. Finalmente, me liberto. Um grito quebra o silêncio. Levo um segundo para perceber que quem grita sou eu. Tremendo, sento e chamo minha mãe aos gritos. E através da penumbra vejo silhuetas na sala: Uma cadeira, a televisão com antena em cima, e o console de vitrola do papai, onde uma figura sombria recua, e atravessa a parede.

          Minha irmã acorda num pulo. Ela abraça meu corpo trêmulo. Sinto sua voz morna contra meu rosto, “Não chora…mamãe já vem”.
Uma porta abre, e fecha com um clique. A luz do corredor acende. Os chinelos de minha mãe batem no chão com passos apressados. Ela entra na sala me quietando. Só depois de muitos beijos e abraços, finalmente me acalmo. “Vou buscar um copo de água com açucar. E amanhã voce vai ver. Vovó vai fazer esses vultos irem embora, tá bom?”

Vultos são aparições espirituais, ou encostos. No espiritismo são descritos como espiritos desencarnados, ou espiritos errantes. Minha avó dizia mesmo que os espiritos me assustavam, eles não queriam me fazer mal. Como eu era vidente, então era apenas um instrumento usado pelos espiritos para comunicação. Quando amadurecer fisicamente, emocionalmente e mentalmente, eu estaria pronta para me desenvolver como uma médium. Essa era minha missão aqui na terra.

          Hoje, vovó me pegou no colo e me benzeu. Com o polegar ela fez cruzes sobre minha cabeça, testa, costas e peito enquanto dizia palavras que eu não entendia. Estalava os dedos por cima da minha cabeça curvada, minha franja como uma fina cortina cobria meus olhos. Eu olho para o chão—cacos vermelhos de cerâmica no piso colocados peça-a- peça por meu pai. Embaixo da mesa um padrão de mosaicos de cacos coloridos em formato de uma estrela de cinco pontas.
Vovó boceja. Lágrimas escorrem manchando o pó de arroz que ela passa no rosto todas as manhãs. “Pronto. Está tudo bem”, sorrindo ela acaricia meus cabelos com as duas mãos, “agora voce só precisa um raminho de arruda atrás da orelha para te proteger.”

PARTE II

“Quando, pois, vos disserem: Consultai os que têm espíritos familiares e os adivinhos, que chilreiam e murmuram: Porventura não consultará o povo a seu Deus? A favor dos vivos consultar-se-á aos mortos? (Isaías 8:19).

A medida que eu cresço, eu continuo a ver vultos, ou sinto presenças ameaçadoras me seguindo por toda parte. Dia e noite. Na escola ou quando brincando. Parece que os rituais fazem pouco ou nenhum impacto por que os espiritos constantemente me torturam. Nunca posso estar sózinha. Minha irmã está cansada de me acompanhar sempre que eu tenho que entrar em um quarto, inclusive no banheiro, tenho vergonha de admitir. Quando não tenho outra alternativa, e entro sózinha em algum lugar, marcas roxas cobrindo meus braços e pernas são testemunho da reação de “luta ou fuga”. Não é possivel lutar contra o invisível. Fugindo das ameaças, eu bato contra paredes e móveis, tropeço e caio quando as forças invisíveis parecem me empurrar e me jogar para todos lados.

Durante as férias do meu segundo ano escolar, minha mãe me levou para passar uma semana com sua avó e tia paterna. Eu odiava ir lá, mas nunca disse isso aos meus pais. A casa estava sempre cheia de sombras, mesmo em dias ensolarados. Mas o que mais me assustava nesse lugar eram os dois ferozes cães Pastor Alemão acorrentados atrás de uma cerca no fundo do quintal.

          Depois do jantar, fico parada de trás da porta de rêde na cozinha observando minha tia-avó dando restos de comida para os cachorros. Está caindo a tarde, e o céu se torna roxeado, projetando sombras lilases sobre o quintal. Pássaros picam cascas de mamão descartadas no grama ao lado do jardim. Os cachorros puxam com força as suas correntes, seus dentes pontudos expostos, e saliva escorrendo sobre a comida sendo colocada em suas tigelas.

          Minha atenção torna para o ranger do portão na frente da casa.
O medo apodera de mim quando vejo um homem de meia idade entrar no quintal. Usando um terno preto com gravata, seus sapatos engraxados batem no corredor de ladrilhos. A fumaça de seu cigarro ondula acima de seus cabelos escuros e lustroso.

          Como foi que ele abriu o portão trancado? Porque os cães não latem? Ele está rápidamente se aproximando do corpo curvado da minha tia-avó. Sem perceber o intruso, ela acaricia a cabeça dos cães enquanto eles devoram a comida.
Quando tento gritar para avisá-la, fico paralisada. É o mesmo tipo de paralisia que acontece quando desperto do sono. Me esforço para gritar, minha boca está aberta, mas minha voz não sai. Com os braços estendidos, o homem abaixa para abraçá-la. Mas antes de tocár nela, ele desaparece em um sopro de fumaça.

Na manhã seguinte, minha bisavó me levou para ver uma amiga que era médium. Ela queria saber se o homem que eu vi era seu marido, meu falecido bisavô que veio visitar sua filha. O guia espiritual da médium confirmou que era seu marido, e pediu para minha avó dizer a minha mãe que me levasse a um centro espírita de Mesa Branca em nossa vizinhança para aconselhamento em meu desenvolvimento espiritual.
Nas reuniões de Mesa Branca, os médiuns sentam em volta da mesa coberta com uma toalha de linho branco, um vaso com rosas brancas, uma jarra de água e alguns copos são colocados no centro da mesa. Os “pacientes” sentam em cadeiras encostadas na parede. O Centro está sempre cheio de pessoas procurando orientação dos guias espirituais a respeito de doenças, relacionamentos, finanças, e assuntos espirituais.

          Esperando a sessão começar, eu olho para um quadro de Jesus Cristo abençoando um menino ajoelhado a seus pés. Há prateleiras com várias estatuas ao redor da sala: São Jorge matando o dragão, São José segurando o bebê, Jesus, A Virgem Maria, Nossa Senhora Aparecida—a venerada Madonna negra, santa padroeira do Brasil. Velas lançam sombras tremulas e alongadas nas paredes. O doce perfume de incenso enche a atmosfera.

          Através de tilintadas de uma cortina de contas, a médium entra na sala vestida de branco. Ela está acompanhada por três outros médiuns tambem vestidos como medicos. Os mediums sentam ao redor da mesa, e a sessão inicia com orações convidando os guias de luz para se juntar a nós. Gemendo, a médium principal, uma mulher idosa com cabelos azulados, chama seu guia espiritual. Seu corpo convulsa, e a mesa chacoalha, espirrando água da jarra sobre o pano. Os médiuns se revezam lendo o Evangelho Segundo o Espiritismo. Logo depois das leituras, os “pacientes” ficam diante de cada médium para receber suas consultas espirituais e energia de cura através de passes.

Quando recebo meu passe, a médium repete o que minha avó falou por anos. Eu tenho um dom, mas ainda sou muito jovem para desenvolver minha mediunidade e receber meu guia espiritual. Mas não importa quantas vezes vamos para as reuniões, ou como minha mãe segue os rituais prescritos para limpeza da casa e nossos corpos para nos livrar de energias negativas, os ataques somente intensificam a medida que vou crescendo.

Minhas habilidades psíquicas tambem aumentam, me dando uma sensação de poder. Minha intuição é forte e as vezes posso ler o pensamento das pessoas. Revelações de coisas para as quais nenhuma criança deve ter conhecimento é um fardo que não posso compartilhar com ninguem. Como não sou emocionalmente preparada para processar essas coisas, eu me torno em uma criança ultra-sensível e temperamental.

PARTE III

“Sai-te da tua terra, da tua parentela e da casa de teu pai, para a terra que eu te mostrarei” (Genesis 12:1).

Em 1968, depois de muitos anos aplicando por um visto, nossa familia recebeu permissão de entrada na América. É uma história complicada de como chegamos neste país, especificamente em Massachusetts. Em resumo, a mãe de meu pai nasceu em Taunton, Massachusetts e viveu lá até os seis anos de idade. Ela eventualmente imigrou para o Brasil com seu pai (sua mãe, minha bisavó, voltou para America depois de separar do meu bisavô), mas ela nunca perdeu a cidadania Americana. Dois anos após a morte de seu marido, minha avó voltou ao seu país de nascimento em 1966, reunindo-se com a mãe depois de décadas de separação. Dois anos depois, nós embarcamos em busca do Grande Sonho Americano.

Eu tinha nove anos, minha irmã oito quando imigramos. Nós adaptamos bem com a lingua Inglesa e com a cultura. No entanto, minha mãe não. Esse era o sonho de meu pai, não o dela. Eles concordaram em viver aqui nos Estados Unidos por cinco anos, trabalhar duro, ajuntar dinheiro, e voltar para o Brasil. Lidar com meus ataques espirituais neste país não foi facil. Não havia médiuns ou centros espiritas para procurar ajuda naquela época. Aprendemos logo que nossas crenças não era assunto para discutir abertamente na cultura Americana. Minha mãe fazia o melhor possivel procurando ervas para banho de defeza e incenso no super mercado. E mantinhamos nossa fé um segredo bem guardado.

Paralisia do sono, vendo espiritos, ouvindo barulhos e passos na velha casa que moravamos era ocorrência comum. Do Brasil, minha avó mandava livros espíritas para nosso estudo, e participava na Mesa Branca em nosso nome.

PARTE IV

“Os egípcios ficarão desanimados, e farei que os seus planos resultem em nada. Depois eles consultarão os ídolos e os necromantes, os médiuns e os adivinhos” (Isaías 19:3).

Cinco anos depois, meus pais nos mandaram de volta ao Brasil para viver com meus avós maternos. Eles voltariam assim que economizassem o suficiente para comprar uma casa. Mesmo que minha irmã e eu tivessemos o maior entusiasmo para voltar para nossa terra, a América agora era nossa casa tambem.
Uma noite não muito após nosso regresso, enquanto assistia a novela com meus avós, irmã, e primos, eu tive minha segunda experiência de paralisia estando completamente acordada.

É o momento de destaque do episódio da novela. Pelo canto do olho, eu percebo uma entidade entrar pelo corredor. Todo meu corpo paralisa. Olhando com horror em silencioso, vejo a forma translúcida e azulada de um homem idoso entrar na sala de estar. Mesmo sem ouvir o que ele esta dizendo, percebo que ele esta muito nervoso. Suas características franzidas são surpreendentimente visiveis, mesmo que eu possa ver através dele. Por alguns instantes ele fica parado, agitando os braços, tentando chamar nossa atenção. Com gesto desdenhoso, ele abaixa a cabeça em derrota antes de sair da sala.

Liberada da paralisia, meu grito assustou todos tirando-os dos seus assentos. Quando eu contei através de lagrimas o que aconteceu, eles reclamaram. O momento mais esperado da novela foi interrompido. Minha avó estava brava. Eu podia perceber por sua sobrancelha arqueada. Ela ordenou que eu a seguisse até a cozinha. Para minha surpresa, ela tambem viu a entidade. Sua raiva não era porque eu interrompi a novela, mas como eu reagi em direção a um espirito que precisava de ajuda—o avô dela. Sua reprimenda sobre minha imaturidade espiritual doeu profundamente. Porque ela estava brava comigo por algo que eu não tinha ideia como controlar? Depois de todos esses anos, eu ainda não sabia o que fazer. Ela me aconselhou a estudar os livros de Kardec novamente. E insistiu para que eu fosse as sessões de Mesa Branca para desenvolver minha mediunidade.

Depois de compartilhar essa experiência com duas tias, elas me convidaram para acompanha-las a um centro espirita de Umbanda que elas recentemente tinham entrado. Eu não tinha muito conhecimento sobre Umbanda, e minha tia me explicou.

Umbanda, uma religião que chegou no Brasil através de escravos Africanos, é sincretizada com o Catolicismo. Quando os mestres de escravos obrigavam os escravos a adorar oa santos católicos, os escravos se curvavam no altar, no entanto, quando suas cabeças tocavam o chão, eles adoravam as imagens de seus próprios deuses enterradas sob o altar. Na Umbanda, há um deus supremo. As divindades adoradas são chamadas Orixás. Cada Orixá é representado por uma cor ou um elemento.

Por exemplo: Oxalá (Jesus) é branco. Iemanjá (Virgem Maria) a deusa do mar é azul. Xangô (São João) deus do trovão é vermelho e marron. Ogum (São Jorge) deus da guerra é azul escuro e verde. Existem legiões, falanges, linhas ou hierarquias como: Espiritos de escravos Africanos, crianças, ciganos e marinheiros. No entanto, “a esquerda” ou as forças das trevas devem ser adoradas tambem. Uma vez no mes, Exu (uma entidade demoníaca), é comemorado para garantir que ele continue a ser o guardião do templo de Umbanda chamado terreiro, mantendo as forças das trevas á distância. Pomba gira, é a parte feminina de Exu. (Espiritos Incubus e Sucubus).

Isso me fascinou, e na semana seguinte, participei do meu primeiro serviço na Umbanda. Quando chegamos ao templo, um prédio azul sem pretensões, esperamos lá fora com um grupo de médiuns. Muitas pessoas chegavam caminhando até a porta da frente. Olhei pela porta lateral, a entrada dos médiuns, e notei que as pessoas eram levadas para bancos. Uma cerca baixa, com um pequeno portão separava o terreiro, da área da congregação. Um grande altar chamado congá, pegava a maior parte da parede da frente do terreiro. Estava coberto com renda branca e com muitas estátuas de Orixás, velas, e flores. Dois atabaques de madeira estavam a cada lado do congá.

Quando o Pai de Santo (o médium principal) chegou, minha tia me apresentou a ele. Era um homem baixo, gentil, e como todos os outros médiuns vestia roupas brancas e guias coloridas no pescoço.

          Ele segura a minha mão, e fico intrigada pelo azul de seus olhos. Eu não podia piscar enquanto ele falava comigo. Hipnotizada pelo seu olhar, ouço atentamente suas palavras, “Bem vinda irmã. Voce vem das águas…filha de Iemanjá. Voce esta pronta para desenvolver sua mediunidade.”

          Meu coração acelera. Estou zonza. Algo mudou em minha alma. Existe aqui uma forte presença espiritual, mas é diferente. É lindo. Esperançoso. Calmo. Por fim, aos quatorze anos de idade, a busca do meu propósito na vida é revelada.
Junto-me as pessoas atrás da cerca. Meus pés não pisarão no solo sagrado do terreiro até for convidada a entrar. A fumaça do incenso limpa o espaço de energia negativa.

          Os médiuns entram, formando um semi-circulo ao redor da sala. O Pai de Santo se curva diante do altar batendo a cabeca na base por três vezes. Batendo no peito com o punho fechado, ele saúda os Orixás. Com giz na mão, ele se ajoelha desenhando um circulo com simbolos no chão de cimento. Quando ele termina, uma vela acesa é colocada no centro do pentagrama.

          Batuque de atabaques trovoam no terreiro. Corpos gingam. O ritmo é acompanhado por palmas. Vozes cantam em adoração aos Oxalás. O Pai de Santo recebe seu guia Xangô, batendo no peito em saudação. Falando em um idioma que soa Africano, misturado com Portugues, convoca os espíritos. Ombros chacoalham. Corpos convulsam, e contorcem dançando.

          Meu coração parece que vai explodir. A sala está girando. Vibrações de correntes elétrica me fazem tremer incontrolavelmente. Xangô me ordena entrar no terreiro. Alguem me diz para tirar os sapatos. Eu obedeço sem hesitar. No altar, me inclino diante dos Orixás.

          Hiperventilando, fico diante do Pai de Santo para receber o passe de energia. Sinto meu corpo oscilar, e uma médium com os braços estendidos fica atrás de mim. Por um momento perco a conciência, e sou erguida do chão por dois outros médiuns. Uma canção de sereia ressoa ao meu redor em adoração a minha deusa, Iemanjá.

Minha vida é a Umbanda. Umbanda é a minha vida. Minha mediunidade está desenvolvendo bem. É o tempo mais feliz da minha vida, exceto pela terrivel saudades que sinto dos meus pais. Já se passou mais de um ano que deixamos a América, e eles ainda não marcaram data para voltar.

O próximo passo para meu progresso espiritual é ser batizada na cachoeira. Me dizem que as cachoeiras tem tremendas vibrações e energia para limpar impurezas espirituais.

          Na base do véu da cachoeira, fico diante do Pai de Santo. A rocha escorregadia é fria contra a planta dos meus pés. Não tenho medo de cair na piscina borbulhante abaixo. Ele segura minhas mão, invocando meu guia. Agua frígida cai sobre minha cabeça curvada. Como um raio, Iemanjá me possui. Violentamente, minha cabeça joga para frente e para trás. Meu cabelo comprido e molhado chicoteia meu rosto repetidamente. Despertando do meu transe, sinto êxtase total, repleta de alegria e paz.

PARTE V
“E os videntes se envergonharão, e os adivinhadores se confundirão, sim, todos eles cobrirão os seus lábios, porque não haverá resposta de Deus” (Miquéias 3:7).

Alguns meses depois, meus pais voltaram para o Brasil. Este deveria ter sido o momento mais feliz de nossas vidas, mas logo, tudo mudou para o pior. Meus pais brigavam constantemente. Meu pai odiava o Brasil. Minha mãe adorava. Depois de alguns meses após sua chegada, meus pais, colocaram a decisão de ficar no Brasil ou voltar para a America nas mãos minha e da minha irmã. Se nós escolheríamos ficar no Brasil, minha mãe ficaria conosco, mas meu pai voltaria sózinho para a América. Mas se nós decidiamos voltar para a América, voltaríamos todos juntos. Este foi um grande peso para mim aos quinze anos, e para minha irmã de quatorze suportar. Mesmo que minha irmã estava apaixonada por um rapaz que namorava desde que chegamos, ela e eu concordamos que era melhor voltarmos todos juntos para a America. Os nossos corações estavam partidos. Ela pelo namorado. Eu pela Umbanda.

Antes de deixar o Brasil, o Pai de Santo me avisou que nunca deveria receber meu guia, a não ser que houvesse outro médium experiente presente. Eu concordei em manter essa promessa, sabendo ser impossível encontrar médiuns em Massachusetts. (Isso foi em 1975. Agora, médiuns e Centros Espiritas podem ser encontrados em quase toda América).

Depois de voltar para Massachusetts, meus pais compraram uma bela casa em uma colina, com um lago no fundo do quintal. Pela primeira vez em nossas vidas, minha irmã e eu tinhamos um quarto cada uma. Móveis e eletrodomésticos novos. Bons carros. No colégio reencontrei os antigos colegas, e namorei um rapaz por quem me apaixonei antes de voltar para o Brasil. Nós tinhamos muito em comum. Ele tambem imigrou do Brasil na década de 1960, e sua avó que morava em São Paulo, não muito longe da minha familia, tambem era médium.

Por hora, todos estavam satisfeitos. Exceto minha irmã. Ela estava inconformada sem seu namorado. Depois de um ano, ela voltou para morar com meus avós no Brasil. Eu continuei adorando Iemanjá fielmente. Na praia oferecia flores a ela. Velas azuis eram acesas em sua homenagen. No meu quarto, sua estatua e o guia de contas azuis constantemente me faziam lembrar do meu amor pela Umbanda e pelos Orixás. Lógicamente, eu ainda via vultos, continuava tendo paralisia do sono, e experiencias de sonhos psíquicos vívidos. Mas através da Umbanda, eu acreditava que minha vida espiritual estava sob controle.

Quando minha irmã decidiu casar com dezesseis anos, meu pai não aceitou e escreveu para ela esperar. Mesmo porque, não podíamos nos dar ao luxo de fazer outra viagem cara para o Brasil naquele momento. Minha irmã insistiu em seguir com os planos de casamento. Aqui na América, nossas vidas começaram a desmoronar. Meus pais estavam a beira do divórcio. No dia do casamento da minha irmã, minha mãe quase enlouqueceu de tanto desgosto. A atmosfera em nossa casa era de opressão e depressão. Não importava o quanto eu pedia ajuda para Iemanjá, as coisas só pioravam.
Através de sonhos vívidos e sussurros no meu ouvido, criei desconfiança e ciúmes intenso do meu namorado. Como meus pais, nós brigavamos o tempo todo. Não havia paz. Nem alegria. Milagrosamente, nosso relacionamento sobreviveu meus constantes ataques de ciúmes e acusações.

Alguns meses depois, recebemos uma notícia maravilhosa. Minha irmã estava grávida. Os planos de chegar para o nascimento do bebê avançaram. Até meu namorado viajaria conosco. Logo depois da minha formatura do colégio, nós iríamos para o Brasil.
Minha irmã deu a luz a um precioso bebê. Ele viveu apenas quatro dias. Isso foi um tsunami devastador de perca. Inimaginável o sofrimento da minha irmã e cunhado. As palavras dos médiuns dizendo que a vida do bebê foi curta por causa de seu espirito elevado, e que sua missão aqui na terra estava cumprida, não nos trouxe nenhum consolo.

Depois do enterro, eu visitei o terreiro de Umbanda, Durante as evocações, uma moça perto de mim ficou encorporada. Enquanto eu curvava minha cabeça tentando me concentrar para receber Iemanjá, a moça girou em dança golpeando meu rosto violentamente com o dorso da mão. Perdi minha concentração olhei para cima e recebi outro tapa. Sua agressão, uma artimanha mal disfarçada através da dança selvagem. Lágrimas ardiam em meus olhos quando ouvi arfadas de surpresa, e risadinhas vindo da congregação. O Pai de Santo ficou diante de mim chamando Iemanjá por um longo tempo enquanto eu soluçava com raiva e vergonha. Eu sabia que ela tinha feito aquilo de propósito. Era impossível para mim, no meu estado emocional e contaminado, receber Iemanjá. E foi a ultima vez que visitei o terreiro de Umbanda.

Quando visitamos a avó do meu namorado alguns dias depois, seu guia espiritual me disse que eu não podia permitir que meu corpo permanecesse aberto. O espirito explicou que isso era perigoso, já que não frequentava regularmente um templo sob a direção de um médium experiente. Como um magnético, eu estava aberta para que entidades malignas entrassem no meu corpo. Devastada, fiquei relutantemente de acordo. Ela realizou o ritual para fechar o chakra onde espiritos entravam meu corpo. Algum dia, poderia revertir o trabalho, e novamente abrir meu corpo.

Eu jurei nunca mais pisar no Brasil. Desiludida, minha irmã decidiu voltar para a América conosco. Seu marido aguardaria a documentação do visto.
Depois de voltar para a América, minha vida tornou-se em um monte de cinzas de opressão sem esperança. Os fortes pilares da minha fé cairam por terra.

PARTE VI
“Quando alguém se virar para os adivinhadores e encantadores, para se prostituir com eles, eu porei a minha face contra ele, e o extirparei do meio do seu povo” (Levítico 20:6)

A primeira coisa que fiz, foi tirar Iemanjá da prateleira do meu quarto. Em uma caixa eu guardei a estátua junto com o guia de contas azuis. A partir desse momento, os ataques espirituais intensificaram e eu não sabia por onde procurar ajuda.
Depois de alguns meses, meu cunhado chegou na America, apenas um dia antes da grande tempestade de neve de 1978. Em Junho, me casei aos dezenove anos. Nós compramos nossa primeira casa e tinhamos bons trabalhos. Saíamos e nos divertíamos com amigos e familiares. Mas por dentro, eu estava morta. Passava os momentos da vida sem alegria e sem paz.

Quatro anos depois meu filho nasceu. Minha filha quatro anos depois dele. Aparentemente nossas vidas pareciam perfeitas. Minha irmã tambem teve outro menino e uma menina, os dois lindos e saudáveis. Meus pais acertaram seu casamento, e curtiam seus netos. Mas espiritualmente todos nós girávamos em um buraco negro de desespero.
Meus pais, irmã, cunhado, meu marido e eu decidimos que precisavamos de uma mudança de cenário. Talvez mudando para a Flórida e começando uma nova vida em um clima tropical, nossos espiritos se elevariam. O inverno cinzento da Nova Inglaterra parecia cada vez mais longo.

A vida na Flórida foi ótimo no inicio. Todos nós tinhamos lindas casas, piscinas e maravilhosas praias próximas. Mas logo, a contaminação espiritual voltou a nos perseguir. Até mesmo as crianças foram afetadas pelo inferno que nos rodeava noite e dia. As vezes eles viam ou ouviam coisas que os assustavam. Sentindo a presença maléfica principalmente no meu quarto, meus filhos se recusavam a entrar no meu quarto sózinhos. Em muitas ocasiões, os socos na parede sobre nossa cama nos acordava em panico. Uma vez, sons de vidros quebrado como uma pedra atirada na janela fez nós pular da cama. Inspecionamos a casa inteira. Todas janelas estavam intactas, e não achamos nada quebrado, ou fora do lugar.

Eu vivia sempre irritada, amargurada e mal humorada. As pessoas pisavam em ovos tentando não desencadear meus repentes explosivos. Uma vez contrariada qualquer coisa poderia acontecer. Eu era imprudente em meus ataques de raiva, principalmente quando dirigindo. As crianças agarravam firmes em seus assentos temendo por suas vidas. Quando meu sangue fervia, o que eu tinha na mão se transformava em um projétil através da sala. Minha histeria e loucura se transformava em culpa e vergonha quando a tempestade em minha alma acalmava. E por razões que não consigo entender, meu marido teve forças para tolerar meu temperamento violento por anos.

Minha saúde estava abalada a tal ponto que eu só tinha energia suficiente para trabalhar como enfermeira na sala de operações nos meus turnos. Quando chegava em casa, desmaiava no sofá, sem forças para cozinhar, limpar ou cuidar da familia. Houve momentos que eu pensei em acabar com tudo, estimulada por vozes sinistras sussurrando que não havia esperança. Eu me sentia sem forças. Insignificante. O amor por meus filhos era a unica razão que me impedia de saltar para o abismo.

Quando minha irmã me ligou dizendo que tinha conhecido um pastor Brasileiro na Gráfica, minha suspeita aflorou. Ela estava emocionada descrevendo a bela oração que ele fez por ela. Ela me disse que depois que ele orou, ela sentiu uma paz como nunca havia sentido antes. Como um vulcão, palavras de ódio por esse homem que eu nem conhecia foram lançadas da minha boca. Eu a adverti que se afastasse dele. Sem dúvida era um charlatão atrás de dinheiro. Isso não á dissuadiu de me explicar como ele tambem orou com meu sobrinho adolescente. E como o pastor o encorajou para casar com a namorada que ele engravidou. Meu sobrinho estava de acordo com isso, e prometeu largar as drogas. Eu não acreditei nela. Eu mesma o tinha levado a um conselheiro profissional para ajudar com seu vício, sem resultados positivos.

Ela convidou o pastor para um café em sua casa no próximo sabado. Meus pais iriam estar lá tambem. E ela queria que nós participasse da reunião. Eu recusei o convite.
Porem, depois de desligar o telefone, eu reconsiderei. Se esse santo homem pensava que podia entrar na minha familia com seus ensinamentos hipócritas, eu estaria lá para confrontá-lo.

No sabado, cheguei na casa da minha irmã armada e pronta para lutar. Nós entramos e vimos o pastor, meus pais, irmã e cunhado na mesa tomando café e comendo bolo. Vendo o pastor se erguer da cadeira, vindo nos cumprimentar, fiquei congelada com o ódio que sentia por ele. Sem graça, minha irmã levantou da cadeira, “Pastor, essa é minha irmã, pela qual estamos orando”.

“Eu não lembro de ter pedido oração para ninguem.”

Imperturbável, o pastor estendeu a mão. Meu marido apertou a mão dele e foi para a mesa. Mas o pastor não se moveu quando ignorei sua mão. Durante nosso impasse, ele tocou meu ombro dizendo que o Senhor o trouxe para ajudar a mim e a minha familia.
De repente, senti a forte presença do meu guia espiritual, como não sentia há anos. Fui alertada. Esta era uma emboscada do pastor. Ele era astuto e deveria ser derrubado. Era impossivel permanecer próxima dele. Eu dei um passo para o lado, e fui em direção a área da piscina, dizendo ao meu marido para terminar seu bolo para nós irmos embora.

Bati com força a porta de correr de vidro, e sentei perto da piscina. Com as mãos trêmulas, acendi um cigarro. Minha ira pelo homem era insuperável. Segundos depois, a porta de vidro abriu. Eu não podia acreditar que o homem tinha me seguido lá fora com a Biblia na mão.

Abruptamente, levantei da cadeira fazendo ele frear os passos. Meu rosto incendiou quando falei que não estava interessada em conversar sobre religião. Com uma calma absurda, o homem citou escrituras, “Clama a mim e responder-te-ei. Invoca-me no dia da angustia: Eu te livrarei. Ele te libertará e te honrará. Dar-lhe-ei abundância de dias, e te mostrarei a minha salvação”

Apaguei meu cigarro, e disse que não acreditava em um livro escrito por homens para controlar as pessoas através do medo e da condenação. Alem disso, ele não podia me manipular como fez com minha irmã e o resto da familia, “Eu tenho um guia espiritual que me protege. Eu não preciso de religião”.

Passei por ele, mas ele me seguiu para dentro da sala. “Irmã, não existem guias espirituais”, ele abriu a Biblia, apontando a página com seu dedo indicador dizendo, “esses que voce crê são demônios”.

Eu girei para enfrentar minha familia. Não estavam ouvindo? Não se ofenderam? Fiquei perplexa. Como que ninguem reagia com a arrogância desse estranho criticando nossas crenças? Com paciência minha mãe sugeriu que pelo menos eu ouvisse o que o homem tinha para dizer. E se isso fosse verdade? E se o que acreditamos a vida inteira não era de Deus?

Minha cabeça latejava, e eu a apertei entre minhas mãos. A sala ficou em silêncio exceto pelos sons das páginas da Biblia virando. Como ondas sísmicas, minha raiva aumentou. A ultima coisa que eu queria era dar a ele a satisfação de me ver perdendo o controle. Pegando minha bolsa, eu disse ao meu marido que iamos embora.

“Antes de voce ir irmã, eu te desafio a ler com seus próprios olhos o que a palavra de Deus ensina há milhares de anos: “Não vos virareis para os adivinhadores e encantadores, não os busqueis, contaminando-vos com eles: Eu sou o Senhor vosso Deus”.

Através de dentes cerrados, eu lhe relembrei que a Biblia não significava nada para mim.

Finalmente, meu pai intercedeu e me disse para sentar. Todos esses argumentos não estavam nos levando a lugar nenhum. Ele sugeriu que o pastor perguntasse sobre as minhas crenças, antes de me julgar. Agora, enfim tinha um aliado. Sentei, e aceitei uma xícara de café oferecido por minha irmã.

“Esta justo então,” ele tocou na Biblia, “Bem, voce não acredita no céu ou inferno, correto? Me diz, o que acontece com as pessoas quando morrem?”

Minha resposta foi óbvia: Os espiritos passam por varios estágios de evolução. O que ele chamava de demônios eram apenas espiritos obsessivos em dimensões paralelas aqui na terra. Eles não evoluem porque escolhem assim. Os espiritos de luz são superiores, espiritos evoluidos. Antes de nosso espirito alcançar a luz, serão necessárias muitas reencarnações.

Pegando a Biblia, ele apontou um versículo e me pediu para ler. Mas eu cruzei os braços, recusando o pedido. Sorrindo, ele disse que a reencarnação não existia, “E, como aos homens está ordenado morrerem uma vez, vindo depois disso o juízo”.

Alguma coisa nessas palavras atingiu meu interesse. E por um milésimo de segundo, eu queria ouvir mais. No entanto, com um abano de mão, eu disse a ele que era inutil tentar discutir o que eu acreditava com ele, se ele continuasse referenciando a Biblia.

Quando chegou a hora dele ir embora, ele ofereceu de orar por nós, pedindo a todos que dessem as mãos formando um círculo. Eu recusei. Mas com um olhar de advertência, meu pai pegou minha mão e meu marido a outra fechando o círculo. Logo que o pastor começou a orar, o que eu pensava ser meu guia espiritual, de repente manisfestou. Gargalhadas saiam da minha boca sem controle. Por mais que eu tentava parar, mais eu ria. Através do meu transe, eu ouvi o pastor gritar, “ Em nome de Jesus Cristo! Saia dela, espirito maligno!”

A entidade tomou controle total. Sentia muita dor, entrava em transe, e voltava a consciência. Não conseguia entender o que estava acontecendo. Como eu podia ser possuída, se meu chakra tinha sido fechado anos atrás? Eu estava prestes a desmaiar. Meu coração disparava. Meu peito doia. O suor cobria meu rosto. Implorei ao pastor que parasse, pensando que era ele que fazia tudo aquilo.
Meu pai veio ao meu socorro e ordenou o pastor que me deixasse. Finalmente o espirito me soltou, e corri para o banheiro e vomitei, porem não o café que tinha bebido a alguns minutos atrás, mas uma substância gelatinosa transparente. Sentindo-me fraca e traída, eu disse a todos, em termos inequívocos, que nunca mais queria ver o pastor.

PARTE VII
“E perguntou-lhe Jesus, dizendo: Qual é o teu nome? E ele disse: Legião; porque tinham entrado nele muitos demônios” (Lucas 8:30).

Depois da experiência na casa da minha irmã, eu comecei a duvidar sobre a identidade do meu guia espiritual. E sobre espiritismo em geral. Porque Iemanjá me atacava se era um espirito de luz—meu guia? Mesmo que não estivesse totalmente convencida, quebrou meu coração ouvir a dor na vóz do meu marido quando ele sugeriu que pelo menos o pastor viesse a nossa casa para orar. Ele descreveu como horrivelmente distorcida e desfigurada eu fiquei enquanto possuída. Meu filho adolecente e meu sobrinho testemunharam parte da minha possessão. Ambos estavam perturbados e imploraram para que eu deixasse o pastor me ajudar. Embora estivesse confusa e conflita, por amor á minha familia, eu finalmente concordei com a sessão de libertação.

O pastor instruiu toda a familia para jejuar, e permanecer em oração no dia da minha libertação, Sabado, 29 de Março de 1997. Ele e sua esposa marcaram para estar em minha casa as cinco horas da tarde. Eu jejuei tambem, e tentei ler a Biblia com capa de couro que ele me deu. Meu marido e filhos sairam para se juntar a meus pais, irmã e familia na casa da minha irmã, permanecendo em oração de intercessão.

Enquanto só, eu tive dúvidas sobre a libertação. O pânico tomou conta de mim. Vozes sussurravam para mim fugir. Para sair antes ele chegasse. Eu peguei a Biblia, mas não pude abrir. Tentei orar, mas minha mente ficou inundada com ameaças alarmantes. Incapaz de suportar a tensão por mais um segundo, peguei a chave do carro e corri para a porta. Quando abri, o pastor e sua esposa já estavam lá.

Orações e leitura das escrituras pelo pastor e sua esposa iniciaram o processo de libertação. Quando o pastor tentou me ungir com oleo, gritando fiquei possessa. Somente algumas coisas me lembro claramente sobre minha libertação. Mas, muitos detalhes me foram dados pelo pastor, e minha irmã que chegou depois que iniciou a libertação.

Enquanto possuída, passamos por toda a casa removendo coisas consagradas para o reino demoníaco que eu servi minha vida inteira. Imagens de minhas mãos passando por gavetas e armários, encontrando a caixa com Iemanjá e o guia de contas, o rosário de cima da cama, roupas, jóias, livros de ocultismo, discos, e videos sendo retirados, são minhas lembranças principais do evento. Lembro tambem, como em um sonho, agachada atrás de minha casa, cavocando a terra com as mãos em busca de uma estátua de São José que estava lá enterrada de ponta cabeça (uma simpatia para vender minha casa).

Minha irmã, porém relatou detalhes horriveis sobre a libertação. Fiquei transformada físicamente, meus olhos tornaram negros de ódio, minha lingua como de uma serpente saindo de uma boca destorçada, cuspindo e blasfemando Deus. Minhas mãos como garras ameaçando o pastor. Quando o pastor colocou um crucifixo na minha testa, o demonio ria de gargalhadas. Mas quando colocou uma cruz vázia, declarando a vitória de Jesus Cristo sobre a morte e Sua ressurreição, e que nossos pecados foram perdoados pelo Sangue derramado por Cristo, o demonio recuou em gritos de desespero. Gritava que estava sendo queimado e implorava por socorro. Momentâniamente, lembro ter aberto os olhos vendo a silueta de uma cruz e ficando cega com uma luz brilhante como o sol, a ponto que cobri minha face com o braço.

Finalmente, quando o pastor gritou, “Eu te ordeno em nome de Jesus Cristo que saia dela”, o jugo de fortaleza de Satanás em minha vida foi quebrado. Como uma bomba explodindo ao meu redor, meu corpo voou para cima, e eu fui jogada uma longa distância no corredor. Quando minhas costas bateram no chão de cerâmica eu abri os olhos. Surpreendentemente, a força do impacto não me feriu. Instantâneamente, um véu escuro levantou dos meus olhos. Eu fiquei sorrindo, admirando tudo ao meu redor.

Agora eu entendia o que significava nascer de novo. Eu era uma nova criatura em Cristo. O velho se fez novo. Nunca antes senti tanta paz. Cristo realmente me libertou.
Fiquei surpresa quando vi minha irmã soluçando perto de mim. Não tinha idéia que ela estava presente durante a libertação. O ar cheirava a enxofre e fumaça. Eu olhei para o relógio. Eram duas horas da manhã. Me parecia ter passado somente duas horas, mas a libertação durou mais de oito horas. Quando meu marido chegou, a primeira coisa que ele notou foi muitos sacos de lixo cheios de coisas para serem queimadas. A segunda coisa foi o cheiro de fumaça na cozinha.

Mesmo que o pastor assegurava que eram resíduos de odor da libertação demoníaca, meu marido não acreditou, e correu para a geladeira, empurrando para fora da parede, certo que tínhamos um curto-circuito

PARTE VII
“Se com a tua boca confessares que Jesus Cristo é o Senhor e no teu coração creres que Deus o ressuscitou dos mortos, serás salvo (Romanos 10:9).

O dia depois da minha libertação foi Domingo da Ressurreição. Mesmo que dormi apenas por três horas, consegui acordar sem um despertador pela primeira vez em minha vida. Me sentindo renovada, saí correndo de casa para assistir meu primeiro culto de Ressureição durante o nascer do sol em um parque perto de casa.

Cristo ressuscitou, Ele ressuscitou mesmo! Aleluia!

Jesus Cristo usou esse pastor missionário para trazer as Boas Novas da Salvação e libertação do ocultismo para muitos membros da minha familia. Ele ministrou para nossa familia na Flórida, em Massachusetts e no Brasil. Muitos foram salvos, e agora vivem para Cristo Jesus. Meus pais, minha irmã e sua familia, eu e minha familia todos aceitamos Jesus Cristo como Nosso Senhor e Salvador. Todos fomos batizados na piscina na casa da minha irmã.

Logo que convertemos, meus pais mudaram o nome da Gráfica de Pyramid Printing para Hosanna Printing. Depois que a Gráfica passou para mim e minha irmã, mudamos o nome para Redeemer Printing (Gráfica Redentor). Tudo para Sua Honra e Glória.
Agora quando olho para os rostos inocentes dos meus netinhos, eu estremeço só em pensar que eles poderiam ter herdado essas maldições demoníacas. Louvo a Deus por sua misericórdia e promessa de um amplo e infalível amor até mil gerações daqueles que o amam e guardam seus mandamentos.

 

PARTE IX
Que nos salvou, e chamou com uma santa vocação; não segundo as nossas obras, mas segundo o seu próprio propósito e graça que nos foi dada em Cristo Jesus antes dos tempos dos séculos” (Timóteo 1:9).

Depois da minha libertação e salvação, levaram muitos anos para compartilhar abertamente meu envolvimento passado com o ocultismo. Ao pesquisar online por Cristãos que tiveram experiências passadas no espiritismo, encontrei o ministério de Laura Maxwell: Our Spiritual Quest.

O testemunho de Laura é poderoso. Sua maneira humilde e gentil de chegar aqueles que estão enredados em qualquer tipo de prática oculta é inspiradora. Tornei-me ávida seguidora de seu programa de rádio e blog. Nós nos conectamos através das mídias sociais, e seu encorajamento me deu a coragem nescessaria para escrever o meu testemunho. Mesmo levando dois anos para finalmente completar. Suas entrevistas com Mark Hunnemann, e muitos outros convidados que alertam sobre o perigo, e engano do ocultismo e espiritismo, são edificantes.

Eu li o livro brilhante de Mark Hunnemann, Seeing Ghosts Through God’s Eye (Vendo Fantasmas pelos Olhos de Deus), e logo nos conectamos nas redes sociais tambem. Laura e Mark tem sido uma tremenda benção em minha vida, e eu agradeço a Deus por eles.

Eu oro para quem ler meu testemunho e ainda não for salvo, para convidar Jesus Cristo em seu coração. Se voce esta, ou esteve envolvido em qualquer forma de ocultismo, incluindo horóscopo, tabuleiro Ouija, cartomante, ou envolvimento em praticas de Nova Era, espiritismo, yoga, etc., por favor peça a Jesus Cristo de Nazaré que te liberte de tudo isso. Procure uma igreja que tenha estudo Bíblico, e peça a Deus direção em todas áreas em sua vida.

Embora meu testemunho não seja único, ilustra práticas ocultas em detalhes que muitos talvez não estão familiarizados. Infelizmente, o reino do ocultismo está se espalhando a medidas alarmantes, infiltrando-se em todas as áreas, inclusive escolas, areas de saúde, e mesmo em igrejas. O fato de muitos pastores ignorarem esse tópico, e fechar os olhos para esse holocausto espiritual é angustiante.

Muitos perguntam, como é possivel curar doentes ou ajudar pessoas necessitadas ser de Satanás? A palavra de Deus nos ensina através de muitos versículos sobre os enganos do inimigo: “E não é maravilha, porque o próprio Satanás se transfigura em anjo de luz” (2 Corintios 11:14); “O Perverso chegará com o poder de Satanás e fará todo tipo de falsos milagres e maravilhas. E enganará com todo tipo de maldade os que vão ser destruidos” (2 Thessalonicenses 2:9-10).

Para aqueles que acreditam ter visto, ou contactado o espirito de um amado que partiu, este é tambem um esquema do diabo. Espiritos familiar são demônios que se mostram em forma humana somente para enganar. Demônios estão aqui na terra desde o inicio dos tempos. Eles sabem detalhes íntimos sobre nossas vidas: Nascimentos, mortes, casamentos, infidelidades, relacionamentos, traições e mesmo a básica informação do dia a dia sobre nós e nossos amados, vivos ou mortos.

Em 1 João 4:1-6, somos ensinados como examinar/ provar os espiritos para ter certeza que são de Deus. Durante a manifestação de uma entidade, verifique se reconhecem a divindade de Jesus Cristo, Nosso Salvador enviado por Deus, que veio ao mundo como ser humano (encarnação), e Sua ressurreição. Se o espírito negar a divina humanidade de Jesus Cristo, não provém de Deus. Clame o Nome de Jesus de Nazaré durante a manifestação, e o espirito familiar mostrará sua verdadeira identidade demoniaca, e fugirá.

O objetivo de Satanás é usar sua astúcia e trapaça para afastar os seres humanos das verdades de Deus e da salvação eterna. Mas quando confiamos em Jesus Cristo e entregamos nossas vidas a Ele, nossos olhos estão abertos a Sua verdade“Porque a graça de Deus se há manifestado, trazendo salvação a todos os homens, ensinando-nos que, renunciando a impiedade e as concupiscências mundanas, vivamos neste presente século sóbria e justa e piamente. Aguardando a bem-aventurada esperança e o aparecimento da glória do grande Deus e nosso Senhor Jesus Cristo” (Tito 2:11-13).

MY TESTIMONY: Ivani Greppi, Former Umbanda Spiritist Medium

 

Demon impersonating a loved one

“Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes” (Ephesians 6:10-11, NIV).

FOREWORD

“My people are destroyed from lack of knowledge” (Hosea 4:6, NIV).

Twenty-one years ago, a missionary pastor from Brazil visited Pyramid Printing, my parent’s mom and pop shop in Kissimmee, Florida. God used this casual event—a simple business card order—to deliver us from generations of occult practices. This is a summary of what my family and I experienced during decades of being deceived by Satan through the practice of spiritism.

My parents, sister, and I were born in Brazil. Our European ancestors, brought with them to the New World, occult beliefs and rituals practiced for generations before them. I became a fourth generation spiritist medium in Brazil.

My father’s paternal grandparents came from Italy. His Sicilian grandmother was a healer who used potions, herbs, and incantations to heal ailments, as well as spiritual harm caused by “evil eye curses”. Dad’s father, exhibited strong psychic abilities. As a young boy, he alerted his parents about a fox killing all piglets in the pen. But when his parents checked the animals, the suckling piglets were intact, sleeping next to the sow.

Later, the scene repeated, however this time the family witnessed the fox escape with a piglet dangling from its jaw after killing the entire litter as my grandfather predicted. One of grandfather’s visions even saved a man’s life who went missing after his horse returned home alone. Grandfather accurately described the area where the man lay injured after a rattlesnake spooked his horse.

My mother’s ancestors, immigrated to Brazil from Spain. All practiced spiritism. My maternal great-grandmother, grandmother, and grandfather were mediums. Family, neighbors, and friends often brought sick children to their home to be blessed, or to receive spiritual energy “passes”. The healings included removal of the “evil-eye”, fevers, spiritual attachments, even intestinal worms. Teas, herbal baths, incense cleansing, and lighting of candles in honor of spirit guides, and guardian angels were prescribed for cures.

The Gospel According to Spiritism by Allen Kardec was our “bible”. This 1800’s French educator codified spiritism. One of his missions was to clarify the teachings of Jesus “inaccurately” translated in the Bible. We believed in reincarnation and lived in communion with spirits in relation to the corporeal world through Kardec’s mantra: “To be born, to die, to be reborn yet again, and to always progress—that is the natural law.”

We called ourselves Catholics, but for traditional purposes only: Weddings, child baptisms, and seventh day masses for the dead. In reality we rejected traditional religion and did not believe in heaven or hell. “Crentes” (Christian believers) who came door-to-door evangelizing were not welcomed. When they stood behind our property fence, clapping at the gate announcing their presence, we shunned them.

At the age of fourteen while living in Brazil, my indoctrination to develop as a practicing medium happened at a Umbanda Temple. Until meeting the Brazilian pastor at the age of thirty-eight, I had never read the Bible, much less heard about eternal Salvation in Jesus Christ.

We were not evil. We truly believed communication with spirits came from God. And our psychic abilities, a gift from Him.

PART I

“Let no one be found among you who sacrifices their son or daughter in the fire, who practices divination or sorcery, interprets omens, engages in witchcraft, or casts spells, or who is a medium or spiritist or who consults the dead” (Deuteronomy 18:10-11, NIV).

demon alien spirit sleep paralysis night terrors nightmares

          I am five-years-old. Once again, I am awakened from innocent sleep. The type of sleep only children experience. Wide-eyed, I stare into a sea of deep blackness. In the void, someone, or something is hovering close to our pull-out sofa. Watching. Glaring. Fear claws at my heart. A chill envelops me. My skin prickles with raised bumps, and my scalp tingles. Too scared to blink, yet too terrified to see what is behind the blanketing darkness, I try to scream. Only low, garbled sounds escape my lips. Air catches in my throat. My lungs burn for oxygen. Am I dying? My vocal cords and muscles are completely paralyzed. The only movement possible is through my eyelids: Blinking, shutting tight, opening wide.

            It is closer now. Menacing. Cruel. Hostile. There is palpable evil filling the atmosphere. While I struggle with invisible chains choking the life out of me, my younger sister stirs. I hear her steady breathing, and the swooshing of blood pounding against my eardrums.  Finally, I break free. A scream shatters the silence. It takes a second to realize I am the one screaming. Shaken, I sit up crying out for my mother. And through the dimness I see silhouettes across the room: A chair, the television set with rabbit ears, and papai’s turntable console where a shadowy figure retreats behind, then passes through the wall.

          My sister bolts up awake. She hugs my trembling body. Her voice is warm against my cheek, “Don’t cry…mamãe’s coming.” A door creaks open and shuts with a click. The hallway light comes on. My mother’s flip-flops slap the floor in hurried steps. Shushing, she enters the room. It takes many hugs and kisses to finally calm me, “I’ll get you some sugar-water. And tomorrow, you’ll see. Vovó, will make the vultos go away, yes?”

‘Vultos’ are shadow people, or spiritual attachments. In spiritism they are described as disincarnated, wandering spirits. Vovó, my grandmother said even though the spirits scared me, they meant me no harm. Because I was a Vidente (seer of the spirit world), I was only a vessel used by the spirits to communicate through. When I matured physically, emotionally, and mentally, I would be ready to develop as a medium. This was my mission here on earth.

          Today, Vovó blesses me while I sit on her lap. With pinched fingers, she makes crosses over my head, my forehead, back, and chest while praying words I cannot understand. Her fingers snap above my bowed head, my bangs a thin blond curtain over my eyes. I stare at the floor—a patchwork of red ceramic tile fragments laid piece-by-piece by my father. Beneath the table, a mosaic pattern of different colored fragments in the shape of a five-point star.  Vovó yawns. Tears on her cheeks streak the rice powder she applies every morning, “There. All better,” smiling she caresses my hair with both hands, “all you need now is a sprig of rue behind your ear to protect you.”

PART II
“When someone tells you to consult mediums and spiritists, who whisper and mutter, should not a people inquire of their God? Why consult the dead on behalf of the living?” (Isaiah 8:19, NIV)

As I grow, I continue to see shadow people, or sense their ominous presence following me everywhere I go. Day or night. At school, or while at play. It seems like the rituals make little to no impact on how they constantly torture me. I cannot be left alone anywhere. My younger sister is tired of chaperoning me whenever I have to go into a room, including the bathroom, I’m ashamed to admit. When I have no choice but to enter a room by myself, bruises covering my arms and legs are testimony to my fight-or-flight response. It’s not possible to fight the invisible. Escaping the threat, I crash against walls and furniture, trip and fall when unseen forces seem to push and shove me about.

During second grade vacation, my mother took me to spend a week with her paternal grandmother, and aunt. I hated going there, but I never expressed this to my parents. Their house was filled with shadows, even on the sunniest days. But what frightened me most about this place were the two vicious German Shepherds chained behind the chicken-wire fence in their backyard.

After supper, I stand behind the kitchen’s screen door watching my great-aunt feed the dogs our scraps. It’s twilight, and there’s a purplish glow in the sky projecting lilac shadows about the yard. Birds peck at papaya peels scattered on the grass next to the herb garden. The dogs strain at their chains, baring teeth dripping with saliva at the food being set in their bowls.

          My attention turns to the groaning hinges of the gate at the front of the property.  Fear grips me when I see a middle-aged man enter the yard. Wearing a black suit and tie, his shiny shoes tap the tiled walkway. Smoke from his cigarette billows above his slicked- back hair.

          How did he unlock the gate? Why aren’t the dogs barking?

          He is fast approaching my great-aunt’s stooped body. Oblivious to the intruder, she caresses the dogs’ heads while they devour their meal. When I try to scream to warn her, I become paralyzed. It’s the same type of paralysis when I’m asleep. Straining to scream, my mouth is wide open, but I have no voice. With arms extended, the man bends over to embrace her from behind. But before touching my great-aunt, he vanishes into a puff of smoke.

The next morning, my great-grandmother took me to her medium friend. She wanted to know if the man I saw was her husband, my deceased great-grandfather coming to visit his daughter. The medium’s spirit guide confirmed it was her husband and instructed my grandmother to tell my mom to take me to the Mesa Branca (White Table) Spiritist Center in our neighborhood for counseling on my mediumship development.

In the Mesa Branca séance meetings, mediums sit around a table covered in white linen. A vase with white roses, a jar with water and several glasses are set at the center of the table. The “patients” sit in chairs placed against the walls. The Center is always filled with people looking for guidance from spirit guides regarding health, relationships, finances, and spiritual matters.

          Waiting for the session to begin, I stare at a charcoal drawing of Jesus blessing a boy kneeling at his feet. There are shelves with several statues around the room: St. George slaying a dragon, St. Joseph holding a baby Jesus, the Virgin Mary, and Our Lady of Aparecida, the venerated black Madonna and patron saint of Brazil. Candles flicker casting elongated shadows on the walls. Sweet incense fragrance fills the atmosphere.

          Through clinks of a beaded curtain, the medium enters the room wearing all white. She is joined by three other mediums also dressed like doctors. They sit around the table, and the session opens in prayer inviting the spirit guides of light to join us. Moaning, the head medium, an elderly woman with bluish hair, channels her spirit guide. Her body convulses, and the table shakes splashing water from the jar on the tablecloth. The mediums take turns reading from The Gospel According to Spiritism. Soon after the readings, the “patients” stand before each medium to receive their spiritual consultations and healing energy “passes”.

When I receive my “pass”, the medium repeats what my grandmother has told us for years:  I have a gift, but I’m too young still to develop my mediumship abilities and receive (channel) my spirit guides. No matter how often we attend the meetings, or how carefully my mother performs the rituals prescribed to cleanse our home and bodies of negative energy, the attacks only intensify as I get older.

My psychic abilities also increase, giving me a sense of power. My intuition is strong, and sometimes I can read people’s minds. Revelations of things no child should be privy to is a burden I cannot share with anyone. Since I’m not emotionally prepared to process these things, I become an ultra-sensitive and moody child.

PART III

Go from your country, your people and your father’s household to the land I will show you” (Genesis 12:1, NIV)

In 1968, after years of applying for a Visa, our family was granted entry to America. It’s a complicated story of how we came to this country, specifically Massachusetts. In short, my father’s mother was born in Taunton, Massachusetts and lived there until the age of six. She eventually immigrated to Brazil, but never lost her American citizenship. Two years after the death of her husband, my grandmother returned to her country of birth in 1966, reuniting with her mother after decades of separation.

Two years later, we embarked in search of the Great American Dream.

I was nine, my sister eight when we immigrated. We adjusted well to the English language and culture. My mother however did not. This was my father’s dream, not hers. They had an agreement to live here for five years, work hard, save money, and return to Brazil. Dealing with my spiritual attacks in this country was difficult. There were no mediums, or spiritist Centers that we knew of to seek help. We learned right away, our beliefs were not something to discuss openly in American culture. My mother did her best finding herbs for cleansing baths and incense at the local A&P. And we kept our faith a well-guarded secret.

Sleep paralysis, seeing spirits, hearing noises, and footsteps in the ancient house we lived was a common occurrence. From Brazil, my grandmother mailed us books on spiritism to study, and attended The Mesa Branca on our behalf.

PART IV

“The Egyptians will lose heart, and I will bring their plans to nothing; they will consult the idols and the spirits of the dead, the mediums and the spiritists” (Isaiah 19:3, NIV)

Five years later, my parents sent us back to Brazil to live with my maternal grandparents. They would join us as soon as they saved enough to buy a house in Brazil. Even though my sister and I were excited to return home, America was also home to us now.

One night not long after returning to Brazil, while watching the telenovela with my grandparents, sister, and cousins, I had my second fully awake paralysis experience.

          It’s the highlight moment of the telenovela’s cliff-hanger episode. From the corner of my eye, I notice an entity enter the hallway. Paralysis takes over my body. Watching in silent horror, I see the translucent, bluish form of an elderly man enter the living room. Even though I can’t hear what he is saying, I can tell he’s angry. His scowling features are surprisingly visible, even if I can see through him. For a few moments he stands there, waving his arms, trying to get our attention. With a dismissive gesture, he bows his head in defeat before turning away, and leaving the room. Released from the paralysis, my screams shocked everyone out of their seats.

          When I told them through tears what happened, they groaned in annoyance. The most awaited moment of the program was interrupted. My grandmother was livid. I could tell by her high arched eyebrow. She ordered me to follow her to the kitchen. To my surprise, she also saw the entity. Her anger was not because I disrupted the show, but how I reacted toward a spirit in need—her grandfather. Her reprimand about my spiritual immaturity cut deep. Why was she angry with me for something I had no idea how to control? After all these years, I still had no direction. She advised me to study Kardec’s books again. And insisted I return to the Mesa Branca sessions for mediumship development.

After sharing this experience with two of my aunts, they invited me to come with them to the Umbanda Spiritist Center they had recently joined. I wasn’t familiar with Umbanda, and my aunt explained it me.

Umbanda, a religion brought to Brazil by African slaves, is syncretized with Catholicism. When the slave masters forced the slaves to worship the Catholic saints, the slaves bowed at the altar, however when their foreheads touched the ground they worshipped the images of their own gods buried beneath the altar. In Umbanda there is one supreme god. The deities worshipped are called Orixás. Each Orixá is also represented by a color and, or element.

For example: Oxalá (Jesus) is white. Iemanjá (Virgin Mary), the sea goddess is blue. Xangô (St. John), god of thunder is red and brown. Ogum (St. George) god of war is dark blue and green. There are legions, phalanges, ranks or hierarchies such as: Spirits of African slaves, children, gypsies, and sailors. However, the “left side” or dark forces must be worshipped too. Once a month, Exu (a demon-like deity), is celebrated to ensure he will continue to be the guardian of the Umbanda temple called “terreiro”, keeping dark forces at bay.  Pomba-gira, is the female part to Exu. (Incubus and Succubus like spirits).

This fascinated me, and the following week, I attended my first Umbanda service. When we arrived at the temple, an unassuming blue building, we waited outside with a group of mediums. The guests arrived in throngs, walking in the front door. I peeked in from the side door, the mediums’ entrance, and noticed the guests being ushered to benches.

A low fence, with a small gate separated the worship area terreiro, from the congregation seating area. A large altar called congá, extended across most of the front wall of the terreiro. It was covered in white lace with many statues of Orixás, candles, and flowers. Two tall atabaque hand drums made of wood, sat at each side of the congá.

When the Pai de Santo (the head medium) arrived, my aunt introduced me. He was a short, kindly looking man, and like all the other mediums, he wore white clothing and beads around his neck.

He takes my hand, and I am mesmerized by the brilliant pool of his blue eyes. I can’t blink when he speaks to me. Hypnotized by his gaze, I listen intently to his words, “Welcome sister. You are from the waters…daughter of Iemanjá. You are ready to develop your mediumship. Welcome.” My heart accelerates. I am light-headed. Something is stirring in my soul. There’s such a strong spiritual presence here. But it’s different. It’s beautiful. Hopeful. Soothing. At last, at the age of fourteen, the search for my purpose in life is revealed.

          I join the guests behind the fenced area. My feet will not step on the sacred ground of the terreiro until I’m invited to do so. Incense smoke clears the room of negative energy. The mediums enter, forming a semi-circle around the room. The Pai de Santo bows, before the altar touching his forehead to the base three times. Pounding his chest with closed fist, he salutes the Orixás. With chalk in hand, he kneels drawing a circle with symbols inside on the cement floor. When he finishes, a lighted candle is placed in the center of the pentagram.

          Drumming thunders across the room. Bodies sway from side-to-side. Hands clap to the percussion rhythm. Voices sing in worship to the gods. The Pai de Santo mounted by his spirit guide Xangô, thumps his chest in salutation. Speaking in an African sounding language, mingled with broken Portuguese he summons the spirits. The mediums take turns receiving their spirit guides. Shoulders shake. Bodies convulse and writhe. Dancing breaks-out. Voices raise in chants.

          My heart is about to explode. The room is spinning. Electric current-like vibrations cause me to shake uncontrollably. Xangô commands me to enter the terreiro. Someone tells me to remove my shoes. I do this without hesitation. At the altar, I bow before the Orixás.

          Hyperventilating, I stand before the Pai de Santo for the energy pass. Swaying, I notice a female medium with outstretched arms, stand behind me. Momentarily I lose consciousness and find myself being lifted from the floor by two other mediums. A siren song resonates all around me in worship to my goddess, Iemanjá.

My life is Umbanda. Umbanda is my life. My mediumship is developing well. This is the happiest time of my life, except I miss my parents terribly. It’s been over a year since we left America, and there’s no set date for them to reunite with us yet.
The next step in my spiritual progression is to be baptized at a waterfall. Waterfalls have tremendous vibrations, and energy to cleanse spiritual impurities, I’m told.

           At the base of the waterfall’s veil, I step before the Pai de Santo. The slippery rock is cool against the soles of my feet. I have no fear of falling into the bubbling pool below. He takes my hands summoning my spirit guide. Frigid water showers over my bowed head. Like a bolt of lightning, Iemanjá possesses me. Violently, my head snaps back and forth. My long, wet hair arches high over my head, whipping my face repeatedly. When I come out of my trance, I’m overwhelmed with joy and peace. 

PART V

“The seers will be ashamed and the diviners disgraced. They will all cover their faces because there is no answer from God” (Micah 3:7, NIV).

A few months later, my parents returned to Brazil. This was supposed to be the happiest time of our lives, but soon enough our lives took a turn for the worse. Constantly my parents fought. My father hated Brazil. My mother loved it. Only a few months after their arrival, my parents placed a life changing decision in my and my sister’s hands. If we wanted to stay in Brazil, my mother would stay with us, but my father would return alone to America. However, if we decided to return to America, the four of us would go back together. This was a heavy burden for me at fifteen, and my sister at fourteen to bear. Even though my sister was madly in love with a boy she dated since we arrived, she and I agreed we must all return together. Both our hearts are broken. Hers for her boyfriend. Mine for Umbanda.

Before leaving Brazil, the Pai de Santo told me never to channel my spirit guide unless it was in the presence of an experienced medium. I vowed to keep this promise, knowing it would be impossible to find mediums in Massachusetts. (This was in 1975. At present, mediums and spiritist centers can be found almost anywhere in America).

After returning to Massachusetts, my parents bought a beautiful home sitting on a hill, with a pond in the backyard. For the first time in our lives, my sister and I had our own rooms. New furniture and appliances. Nice cars. In high school, I reconnected with old friends, and dated a boy I fell in love with before returning to Brazil. We had a lot in common. He also immigrated from Brazil in the 1960’s, and his grandmother who lived in São Paulo not far from my family, was also a medium.

And at first, everyone was content. Except for my sister. She was miserable without her boyfriend. After a year, she returned to live with my grandparents in Brazil. I continued to worship Iemanjá, faithfully. At the beach, I offered her flowers. Blue candles were lit in her honor. In my room, her statue and my aquamarine beads were a constant reminder of my love for Umbanda and the Orixás. Of course, I still saw shadow people, continued to have sleep paralysis, and vivid psychic dreams. But through Umbanda, I believed my spiritual life was under control.

When my sister decided to get married at sixteen, my father didn’t approve, and wrote asking her to wait. Besides, we couldn’t afford to make another expensive trip to Brazil now. My sister insisted on going forward with the wedding plans. Here in America, our lives began to fall apart. My parents were on the brink of a divorce. The day my sister married, my mother almost lost her mind with grief. The atmosphere at home was heavy with oppression, and depression. No matter how much I prayed to Iemanjá to help, things only got worse.

Through vivid dreams, and whisperings of spirits in my ear, I developed mistrust and intense jealousy for my boyfriend. Like my parents, we fought all the time. There was no peace. No joy. Miraculously, our relationship survived my constant bouts of jealousy and accusations.

We received wonderful news a few months later. My sister was pregnant. Plans to arrive for the baby’s birth moved forward. Even my boyfriend would travel with us. Soon after my high school graduation, we left for Brazil.

My sister gave birth to a sweet baby boy. He only lived for four days. This was a tsunami of devastating pain. Unimaginable, what my sister and brother-in-law were going through. Words from mediums saying the baby’s life was short because of his high-level spirit, and his corporal mission here on earth was completed, did not bring us consolation.

After the funeral, I visited the Umbanda terreiro. During worship, a girl next to me was mounted by her spirit guide. While I bowed my head attempting to concentrate to receive Iemanjá, the girl spun in dance, violently hitting my face with the back of her hand. My concentration broke and I looked up, only to receive another full-blown slap. Her aggression, a poorly disguised ruse through wild dancing. Tears stung my eyes, when I heard gasps and snickering coming from the congregation. The Pai de Santo stood before me calling on Iemanjá for a long time while I sobbed in anger and shame. I knew the girl had done it on purpose. It was impossible for me, in my emotional, contaminated state to receive Iemanjá. And this was the last time I attended the Umbanda terreiro.

When we visited my boyfriend’s grandmother a few days later, her spirit guide told me I could no longer allow my body to remain open. The spirit explained it was too dangerous since I was not regularly attending a temple under the direction of a strong medium. Like a magnet, this left me open for evil entities to enter my body. Devastated, I reluctantly agreed. She performed the ritual to close the chakra where spirits entered my body. Someday, when I was ready again, this would be reversed.

I vowed never to set foot in Brazil again. Despondent, my sister decided to return to America with us. Her husband stayed behind to wait for his visa documentation.
After returning to America, my life became an ash heap of hopeless oppression. The strong pillars of my faith, came crashing to the ground.

PART VI

“I will set my face against anyone who turns to mediums and spiritists to prostitute themselves by following them, and I will cut them off from their people” (Leviticus 20:6)

The first thing I did upon returning to America, was to remove Iemanjá from the shelf in my room. In a cardboard box, I stored her image along with my beads. From that moment on, the spiritual attacks only intensified, and I didn’t know where to turn to for help.

After a few months, my brother-in-law arrived, only a day before the Great Blizzard of 1978. In June, I was married at nineteen. We bought our first home and had good jobs. We went out and had fun with friends and family. But inside, I was dead. I went through the motions of life with no joy. No peace.

Four years later my son was born. My daughter four years after my son. In the surface our lives looked perfect. My sister also had another boy and a girl, both healthy and beautiful. My parents mended their marriage and enjoyed their grandchildren. But spiritually we all spiraled into a black hole of despair.

My parents, sister, brother-in-law, my husband and I decided we needed a change of scenery. Perhaps moving to Florida and starting a new life in a warmer climate would help raise our spirits. The gray New England winters seemed to be getting longer each year.

Living in Florida was great at first. We all had lovely new homes, swimming pools, and gorgeous beaches nearby. But soon, the spiritual contamination returned to plague us. Even the children were affected by the hell brewing around us night and day. Sometimes they saw or heard things that scared them. Sensing an evil presence particularly in my bedroom, my children refused to enter my bedroom alone.

ghost spirit-entity-harassment-support-group

On many occasions, pounding noises above our bed startled us awake. Once, sounds of shattering glass like a rock thrown through a window had us all scrambling out of bed. We inspected the entire house. The windows were all intact, and we found nothing out-of-place or broken anywhere.

My mood was usually foul, angry, bitter. People walked on eggshells trying not to set off my explosive outbursts. Once I was triggered, anything could happen. I was reckless in my fits of rage, especially when driving. The children white knuckled, held on to their seats for dear life. When my temper flared, whatever I got my hands on became a projectile across the room. My hysterics and madness transformed into guilt and shame once the tempest in my soul calmed. And for reasons I can’t fathom, my husband had the strength to tolerate my violent temper for years.

My health suffered to such extent I had only enough energy to work as an operating room nurse for my shifts. When I got home, I passed out on the couch, unable to cook, clean or care for my family. There were times when I contemplated ending it all, spurred on by sinister voices whispering there was no hope. I was worthless. Insignificant. Love for my children was the only thing keeping me from jumping into the abyss.

Ghosts and Hauntings

When my sister phoned me to tell me she met a pastor from Brazil at the printing shop, my suspiciousness went into overdrive. She became emotional describing his beautiful prayer for her. She told me after he prayed, she felt a peace she never had experienced before. Like a volcano, words of pure hatred for this man I never met erupted from my mouth. I warned her to keep away from him. He was no doubt a charlatan looking for money.

This did not dissuade her from gushing about how he also prayed with my teen nephew. And how the pastor encouraged him to marry the girl he recently impregnated. My nephew not only agreed to this but swore off drugs as well. I didn’t believe her. Personally, I took him to counseling for help with his addiction, with no positive results.
She invited the pastor to come for coffee at her house the following Saturday. My parents were going to be there too. And she wanted us to join them. I refused the invitation.

After hanging up with her, I reconsidered. If this holy man believed he could weasel himself in my family with his self-righteous teachings, I would be there to confront him.
On Saturday, I arrived at my sister’s house armed and ready to fight. We walked in to see the pastor, my parents, sister and brother-in-law at the table, drinking coffee and eating cake. At the sight of the pastor rising from his chair, making his way to greet us, I froze in place with burning hatred for him. Embarrassed, my sister got up from her chair, “Pastor, this is my sister. The one we’ve been praying for.”

“I don’t remember asking anyone to pray for me.”

Unfazed, the pastor extended his hand. My husband shook the man’s hand and made his way the table. But the pastor didn’t budge when I ignored his hand. During our standoff, he touched my shoulder saying the Lord brought him here to help me and my family.

Suddenly, there was such a strong presence of my spirit guide, like I had not experienced in years. I was warned. This was an ambush by the pastor. He was cunning and must be struck down. It was impossible to remain in close proximity to the pastor. I sidestepped him and headed for the patio telling my husband to finish his cake so we could leave.

Slamming the sliding glass door with force, I sat by the pool. With trembling hands, I lit a cigarette. My wrath for the man was insurmountable. Seconds later, the patio door swooshed open. I could not believe the man followed me outside with Bible in hand. Abruptly, I rose from my chair stunning the man to stop in his tracks. My face flushed when I told him I was not interested in talking about religion.

With maddening calmness, the man quoted scripture, “If you call upon His name, He will answer you. He will be with you in trouble. He will deliver you and honor you. With long life He will satisfy you and show you His salvation.”

Snuffing out my cigarette, I told him I didn’t believe in a book written by men to control people through fear and condemnation. Furthermore, he couldn’t manipulate me like he did my sister and rest of the family, “I have spirit guides to protect me. I don’t need your religion.”

I brushed past him, but he followed me back inside. “Sister, there are no such things as spirit guides.” He opened the Bible, jabbing the page with his index finger, “These are demons you listen to.”

I whirled around to face my family. Were they listening? Did he not offend them? It baffled me how no one reacted to this stranger’s arrogance in criticizing our beliefs. With patience, my mother suggested I at least listen to what the man had to say. What if this was true? What if what we believed our entire lives was not from God?

My head was throbbing, and I squeezed it between my hands. The room went silent except for the sounds of the onion-skin Bible pages turning. Like seismic waves, my anger rose. The last thing I wanted was to give him the satisfaction of seeing me lose control. Grabbing my purse, I told my husband we had to go.

“Before you leave sister, I challenge you to read with your own eyes what the Word of God has taught for thousands of years: Do not turn to mediums or seek out spiritists, for you will be defiled by them. I am the Lord your God.”

Through clenched teeth, I reminded him the Bible meant nothing to me.

Finally, my father interceded and told me to sit. All the arguing was getting us nowhere. He suggested the pastor ask me about my beliefs, before judging. At last, I had an ally. Taking a seat, I accepted a cup of coffee from my sister’s extended hand.

“Fair enough,” he tapped his Bible, “You don’t believe in heaven, or hell, correct? Tell me what happens to people when they die?”

My response was obvious: Spirits pass through many stages of evolution. What he called demons were merely obsessive spirits in parallel dimensions here on earth. They can’t evolve because they choose not to. The good spirits of light are superior, evolved spirits. Before our own spirits achieve this light, they are reincarnated until attaining it.

Taking his Bible, he pointed to a verse and asked me to read it. But I crossed my arms, refusing the offer. Smiling, he said there was no such thing as reincarnation, “Just as man is destined to die once, and after that to face judgement.”

Something about those words, peaked my interest. And for a millisecond, I wanted to hear more. Nevertheless, with a dismissive wave I told him it was pointless trying to discuss what I believed with him if he kept referencing the Bible.

freedom from chains

My Deliverance From Demons.

When the time came for him to leave, he offered to pray for us, inviting everyone to join hands in a circle. I refused. But with a warning look, my father snatched my hand, and my husband grabbed the other, closing the circle.

As soon as the pastor began to pray, what I believed to be my spirit guide, suddenly manifested. Laughter spilled from my mouth unchecked. The harder I tried to stop, the more I laughed. Through my trance, I heard the pastor yell, “In the name of Jesus Christ! Come out of her, evil spirit!”

The entity had a hold of me. Writhing in pain, coming in and out of consciousness, I couldn’t understand what was happening. How could I be possessed, if my chakra was closed years ago? I was close to passing out. My heart pounded. My chest hurt. Perspiration beaded on my face. And I begged the pastor to stop, thinking this was his doing.

My father came to my rescue and ordered the pastor to let me be. Finally breaking free, I ran to the bathroom and vomited, not the coffee I drank a few minutes before, but a clear gelatinous substance. Feeling spent and betrayed, I told everyone in no uncertain terms that I never wanted to see the pastor again.

PART VII

“Jesus asked him, ‘What is your name?’ ‘Legion,’ he replied, because many demons had gone into him” (Luke 8:30, NIV).

After the experience at my sister’s house, I began to doubt my spirit guide’s identity. About spiritism in general. Even though I was not yet convicted, it broke my heart to hear the pain in my husband’s voice when he suggested for the pastor to at least come to the house and pray.

He described how hideously distorted, and disfigured I became while possessed. My teenage son and nephew witnessed part of the possession. Both were distraught and begged me to let the pastor help me. Even though I was confused and conflicted, out of love for my family, I finally agreed to a deliverance session.

The pastor instructed my entire family to fast, and to remain in prayer on the day of my deliverance, Saturday, March 29th, 1997. He and his wife were scheduled to arrive at my house at five in the afternoon. I fasted too and tried to read the leather-bound Bible he gave me. My husband and children left to join my parents, sister and family at my sister’s house to remain in intercessory prayer.

While alone, I had second thoughts about the deliverance. Panic took over me. Voices kept whispering for me to flee. To run away before he arrived. I took the Bible but couldn’t open it. I tried to pray, but my mind became flooded with alarming threats. Unable to stand the tension any longer, I grabbed my car keys and ran to the door. When I opened it, the pastor and his wife were already standing there.

Prayer and scripture reading by the pastor and his wife initiated the deliverance process. When he tried to anoint me with oil, I recoiled away from him hearing myself screech. There are only a few things I recall clearly about my deliverance. Most details were given to me by the pastor and my sister.

We went through the entire house removing items consecrated to the demonic realm I served my entire life. Images of my hands going through drawers and closets, finding the box with Iemanjá and my beads, the rosary above my bed, clothes, jewelry, occult books, records, and video tapes, are my main recollections of the event. Like in a dream, I also remember crouching behind my house, digging the dirt with my fingers trying to unearth a statue of St. Joseph buried upside-down (a superstitious ritual to sell my house).

My sister however, related horrific details later on to me about the deliverance. Physically, I became transformed. My eyes turned black with hatred. Like a serpent’s tongue coming in and out of my distorted mouth, I spat and blasphemed God. My hands like claws threatened the pastor.

When the pastor placed a crucifix on my forehead, the demon laughed hysterically. But when he placed an empty cross over my forehead declaring Jesus Christ’s victory over death, His resurrection, and that our sins were forgiven by His precious blood, the demon screeched in agony saying it was being burned. Momentarily, I remember opening my eyes to a silhouette of a cross. The light felt bright like the sun, blinding me to the point where I had to cover my eyes with my arm.

Finally, when the pastor yelled, “I command you in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of her,” Satan’s stronghold yoke in my life was broken. Like a bomb exploding around me, my body flew high in the air. And I was thrown several feet halfway the length of the hallway.

When my back crashed on the tile floor, I opened my eyes. Amazingly, the force of the impact didn’t injure me. Instantly, a dark veil lifted from my eyes. I stood smiling, in awe of my surroundings. Now I understood what it meant to be born again. I was a new creation in Christ. The old had gone. Never before had I felt such peace. Christ had truly set me free.

It surprised me to see my sister sobbing into her hands. I had no idea she was present since she arrived after the deliverance started. The air smelled of sulfur and smoke. I looked at the clock. It was two in the morning. It seemed as if only a couple of hours had passed. But the deliverance lasted more than eight hours.

When my husband arrived, the first thing he noticed were several trash bags filled with items to be burned. The second thing was the smell of smoke in kitchen. Even though the pastor assured him this was residual odor from the deliverance, my husband still rushed to the refrigerator, pushing it away from the wall, certain we had an electrical fire.

PART VIII

“If you declare with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord,’ and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved” (Romans 10:9, NIV).

new age sun light healing energy

The day after my deliverance was Resurrection Sunday. Even though I only slept for three hours, I was able to wake up without an alarm clock for the first time in my life. Feeling refreshed, I rushed out of the house to attend my first sunrise service.

Christ is risen, He is risen indeed! Hallelujah!

Jesus Christ used this missionary pastor to bring the Good News of Salvation and deliverance from the occult to many members of my family. He ministered to our family in Florida, in Massachusetts, and Brazil. Many were saved and now live for Christ, and Christ alone. My parents, my sister and her family, my family and I all accepted Jesus Christ as our only Lord and Savior. We were all baptized in my sister’s pool.

As soon as we became Christians, my parents changed Pyramid Printing’s name to Hosanna Printing. After the business was passed on to me and my sister, the name was changed to Redeemer Printing. All for his Honor and Glory.

And now, when I look at my grandchildren’s innocent faces, I shudder to think they could have inherited these demonic curses.

Praise the Lord for His promise of lavishing unfailing love to a thousand generations of those who love Him and keep his commandments.

PART IX – AFTERWORD

“He has saved us and called us to a holy life—not because of anything we have done but because of his own purpose and grace. This grace was given us in Christ Jesus before the beginning of time” (2 Timothy, NIV).

After my deliverance and salvation, it took me many years to openly share my past involvement with the occult. While researching for Christians with past experiences in spiritism online, I found Laura Maxwell’s ministry, Our Spiritual Quest. Laura’s testimony is powerful.

Her humble and gentle manner in reaching out to those who are entangled in any type of occult practice is inspiring. I became an avid follower of her radio program and blog. We connected through social media and her encouragement, gave me the courage to write my testimony, even though it took me nearly two years to finally complete it.

Her interviews with Mark Hunnemann, and many other guests with past occult experiences are edifying. I read Mark Hunnemann’s brilliant book, Seeing Ghosts through God’s Eyes, and soon we connected on social media too. Both Laura and Mark have been a tremendous blessing in my life, and I thank God for their lives.

Ivani Greppi

I pray for those who read this and are not saved, to ask Jesus Christ into their hearts. If you are, or were involved in the occult in any way, including horoscopes, Ouija boards, fortune-telling, or any involvement in the New Age, spiritism, Yoga etc., please ask the Lord to deliver you from it. Find a Bible teaching church and ask for God’s direction in all areas of your life.

Though my testimony is not unique, it illustrates occult practices in detail that many may not be familiar with. Sadly, the kingdom of the occult is spreading at alarming rates, infiltrating all areas including schools, healthcare, and even churches. The fact that many pastors ignore this topic and turn a blind eye to this spiritual holocaust is distressing.

Some may ask how can healing the sick, or aiding a person in need be from Satan? The Word of God teaches us through many verses in Scripture about Satan’s deceitfulness: “And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light” (2 Corinthians 11:14, NIV); “The coming of the lawless one will be in accordance with the work of Satan displayed in all kinds of counterfeit miracles, signs and wonders, and in every sort of evil that deceives those who are perishing” (2 Thessalonians 2:9-10, NIV).

For those who believe they have seen, or contacted the spirit of a departed loved one, this is also a scheme of the devil. Familiar spirits are demons who show themselves in human form only to deceive. Demons have been here on earth since the beginning of time. They know intimate details about our lives: Births, deaths, marriages, infidelities, friendships, betrayals, and even the most basic day-to-day information about us and our loved ones, living or dead.

Satan’s goal is to use his craftiness and trickery to stray humans from God’s truths, and eternal salvation. But, when we put our trust in Jesus Christ, and give our lives to Him, our eyes are opened to His truth, “For the grace of God has appeared that offers salvation to all people. It teaches us to say ‘No’ to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age while we wait for the blessed hope—the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ” (Titus 2:11-13 NIV).
