    Well first off - you cannot straddle the fence - you have your faith in God and the faith in the physic which is not of God. This is first and foremost.

    There are a lot of issues here and people will tell you that you need someone to come to your house and cleanse it. But let me tell you my first experience with this.

    My ex son-in-law saw a demon in his house (his actions invited it in) and it scared us all out of our wits.I called the pastor of our church to come and cleanse the house - he laughed at me and told me he didn't have any free time for a week. I picked a pastor out of the phone book, one that believed in the Gifts of the Spirit, I will never forget what he said - it changed our lives.

    He said 'my dear, you don't need a pastor to cleanse the house, you have the same authority' - at that time I had been a church goer all my life, but never heard much about the Gifts of the Spirit - being Spirit Filled - I was amazed at this.

    He told us to take the pure olive oil - leave the front door open - make the sign of the cross over every door and window and pray the Blood of Jesus over every door and window - command every enemy to leave and that you are a Child of God and no harm can come to you.

    What you are seeing is real - but not to fear - what is in you is greater than what is in the World - just ask Jesus into your heart and repent of your sins and turn from the physics, they are not of God - once you do this - you have all the ability to rid yourself, your house and everything around you of any evil presence.

    This physic is evil - rid yourself of her - don't be afraid of any curse she can put on you - what is in you is greater than what is in the world. Jesus is your Friend and is by your side, put your faith only in the redeeming power of Jesus Christ and turn only to Him. Find a Pastor that is Spirit Filled and works in the Gifts of the Spirit and talk to him, this all may be a little overwhelming for you and the enemy knows when you have fear and will work at driving that fear hard to make you turn back to this physic - don't do it!

    That physic knows nothing about the soul of your father - that is only between God and your father. Yes that physic can call upon the enemy to bring things to you that will freighten you - you don't need to stay up all night - lay down - pray the Blood of Jesus around you and sleep - no harm can come to you when you have the shield of Jesus around you and the enemy cannot cross the blood line.

    You will get a lot of answers from people that do not believe you - but these things are real, but put your hand in the hand of Jesus, hold your head high and know that you are protected and walk in the Joy of the Lord - not the fear of Satan.

    Pray and ask God to reveal where that thing is.

    I have a friend that had things floating around in his house and he would see shadows moving across the hallway. I looked at my watch and told him that in two minutes the devil will know that you know your authority in Christ.
    I preceded to tell him that we Christians are seated in Heavenly places far above all principalities, powers, rulers of darkness and spiritual wickedness in the heavenly places and that they are under our feet. I told him to command the spirits to leave his house in Jesus Name!! They were a little stubborn but they eventually left after a few days and he has no more things floating in his house or seeing any shadows.
    All the devil does is try to scare people and he lies to people and then tries to go out and fulfill what he says. Our power over him comes straight out of Heaven and it is absolute.

    Here's info from an evil spirit from the true and scientific book called, "The devil and Karen Kingston":
    (Rogers is a pentecostal preacher and is leading the deliverance of Karen Kingston):

    Rogers changed his tactics. He now commanded the demon to write for him. He was noticeably surprised when Karen did so without any hesitation. The script was more of a scrawl, but it did closely match the type voice we were hearing. It too appeared to be the handwriting of a person of advanced years.
    Rogers carefully scanned the unique handwritten message. “So you claim to be a psychic counselor? You claim to be one who is able to work miracles of healing? Do you also claim to be able to communicate with the dead?”
    “Oh, yes, of course I do this. So do many others,” responded the aged feminine voice. “This is really not uncommon, you know. Tens of thousands of people have participated in seances, as you call them, and have subsequently been witness to this phenomenon. Why even your Christian Bishop Pike, whom I’m sure you are familiar with, communicated with his dead son.”
    “By God’s word, I charge that you are lying!” exclaimed Rogers. “I command you, on the blood of Jesus Christ, to tell us the truth! The Bible doesn’t support your testimony!”
    “Okay, I guess it really won’t hurt anything,” agreed the demonic entity. The spirit’s apparent willingness to divulge this important information surprised Rogers. He had never in the past had one who would reveal anything about this facet of the spiritual world. The entity went on: “Human beings, by their very nature, are extremely gullible. Naturally they cannot communicate with their deceased loved ones and friends. But what an opportunity this gullibility presents for our side! I can tell you all of this because no one’s going to accept it anyway. The doors will still be wide open to all of us in the other world.
    “You see, some individuals don’t even realize it, but they have been inhabited by many of us for a great number of years. They eventually die. Well, my friends and associates are then forced to roam around in what you call a disembodied state. Naturally, the first thing any of us searches for is another human vessel who will not resist our efforts to gain entrance.”
    Rogers remained silent and just stared at the huge balloon of a girl sitting in front of him. This was truly a revelation. It was the first time he had ever gotten a demon to speak so openly on the subject. The evil spirit rambled on: “What better place to enter another person than at a spiritist meeting, where a medium is ignorantly attempting to communicate with a dead person’s spirit! I say ignorantly because those foolish people actually do sincerely believe that they are in direct communication with the dead. Well! I can tell you this–they are not.”
    “Exactly who or what are these people communicating with?” asked Reverend Rogers. He believed that he already knew. The Bible, in his estimation, was crystal-clear on this point. Yet, the entire issue was subject to debate in both religious and secular circles. Theologians of all denominations hotly argued, pro and con. But here was a golden opportunity to find out from an expert–a demonic entity.
    “I believe you know the answer to that question,” said the demon. “Let’s not kid each other. It’s no more than one or more of my associates. They’re merely imitating the man or woman who died, You can understand how we would know so many intimate things about the deceased. After all, the particular spirit may have spent years and years living with that person. Or, on the other hand, it’s the easiest thing in this world to counterfeit the person who has died. It doesn’t matter whether the death occurred recently or even many centuries ago. Time as you know it is irrelevant in our world.
    “A great many of us have done this, time and time again. After all, if a spiritist medium, psychic, or whatever it is you wish to label the individual, willingly calls upon the spirit of a dead person, and if this individual, and his other assembled group of followers, are naive enough to play games with my world, then what exactly would you expect us to do? Play? No! We never play games.”
    “We parody the words, thoughts and mannerisms of the deceased. We can reveal many things that only those close to the deceased could possibly know. Why? Because for one thing, this convinces everyone at the gathering that it’s a miracle. We can then more readily bring the living field into our fold.”
    Reverend Rogers tolerantly listened. The others gaped in amazement. When the entity finished, Evangelist Sutter asked a question. He and Father Tyson had been exchanging hurried whispers. Tyson wanted to know about the Oui-Ja board. A number of his parishioners had become deeply involved in playing this popular game. In fact, the Oui-Ja had been the mainstay at the last church social. Donald Sutter carefully phrased his question.
    “The Oui-Ja board, my hefty evangelist friend, is no different,” revealed the evil entity. It seemed not at all to mind the Baptist’s interest. “As you well know, some people use this for fun. A few approach it more seriously. Nevertheless, each is consciously trying to receive messages from this familiar object. A great number of people accept the fact that they are in direct communication with the spirit world. They have no fear. Why should they? We have already captured them. The others? All we must do is be patient and wait. Those of our world, in such situations, are required to exert no effort in order to gain our ends. These people are, in a sense, begging us to come forth, to enter them, to give them power. We do! It’s easy when people play with the things of our world. They open the door, not us! They gladly welcome us. We don’t have to force ourselves upon them. Why should we? It’s not necessary.”


    Thanks,

    First off, the psycic ripped you off of money. SHe instilled fear into you. She filled your head with nonsense. I agree with Sharon. You need to settle in your heart whose camp you are going to be in. You can't sit on the fence. Either you are a Christian, and start acting/praying and believing like one, or continue the way you are with the results you are getting.

    Serenaa02, what a situation and I'm sorry this has been happening to you.

    Psychics or people working divination believe they are helping but it's all about source.

    Your source is Jesus, the Name above all names, all authority and power, every knee HAS to bow and He said we can use His Name! Isn't that great!

    You were right about Giovanna, because of her source, she did cast out or silence the demons in your house but DID release higher level demons because it does take a stronger demon to subject a weaker one. Please don't feel hopeless here, Jesus's Name is still ABOVE all.

    First I'd like to recommend to you a book by Derek Prince titled Blessing or Curse, also I see you're in Canada near Toronto, I'd like to recommend you attend Toronto Airport Christian Fellowship regarding what's been happening to you.

    And if you'd like, I'd like to offer this prayer from Derek's book to release you from the consequences of your invitation to psychic involvement in your life.

    "Lord Jesus Christ, I believe that You are the Son of God and the only way to God; and that You died on the cross for my sins and rose again from the dead.

    I give up all my rebellion and all m sin, and I submit myself to You as my Lord.

    I confess all my sins before You and ask for Your forgiveness - especially for any sins that exposed me to a curse. Release me also from the consequences of my ancestors' sins.

    By a decision of my will, I forgive all who have harmed me or wronged me -- just as I want God to forgive me. In particular I forgive ......

    I renounce all contact with anything occult or satanic - if I have any 'contact objects,' I commit myself to destroy them. I cancell all Satan's claims against me.

    Lord Jesus, I believe that on the cross You took on Yourself evry curse that could ever come upon me. So I ask You now to release me from every curse over my life -- in Your Name. Lord Jesus Christ !
    By faith I now receive my release and I thank You for it."

    Don't be shy to Thank Him a million times if you want :)

    If you were given any materials of objects from these psychics, smash them and throw them in the garbage.

    Blessings! Freedom and Victory!

    Amen Sharon. You got that right, for sure.

    Here's an interesting testimony of another girl who dealt with similar issues.

    Julie Morgan: A Spiritual Housecleaning - CBN TV - Video

    One thing...please go through your house and ask the Lord to reveal to you anything that may be offensive to Him. It may be a book, a figurene, some sort of artifact that represents another god to someone.....get rid of these things. You want to do some spiritual housecleaning AND material housecleaning. Get that stuff OUT.

    Forgive the psychic. She's seeking power but from the wrong source. Remember, God does not have an equal and opposite enemy. Big God, little devil. Use the word. It's a powerful sword! "For it is written! Greater is He that is in me than he that is in the world!" You're going to be fine. Just denounce, renounce, repent and take back the land where you previously went into agreement with those other sources of power.

    God is a good God and he loves you so! :)

    I hope you know that's a lie.

    For the Son of Man has come to seek and to save that which was lost.
    Luke 19:10

    There is always a point in saving a family.



    What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who is against us? He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him over for us all, how will He not also with Him freely give us all things? Who will bring a charge against God's elect? God is the one who justifies; who is the one who condemns? Christ Jesus is He who died, yes, rather who was raised, who is at the right hand of God, who also intercedes for us. Who will separate us from the love of Christ? Will tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? Just as it is written, "FOR YOUR SAKE WE ARE BEING PUT TO DEATH ALL DAY LONG;
    WE WERE CONSIDERED AS SHEEP TO BE SLAUGHTERED."
    But in all these things we overwhelmingly conquer through Him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
    Romans 8:31-39

    Your family is involved in the occult and you've contacted occultists to help you. It is absolutely no surprise that you are having to deal with demonic attacks. These types of situations are common among people who have opened the door through even minor involvement in occultic practices, even those you might consider to be a joke.

    The sign of the cross and prayer is the most important thing for a Christian to resort to when confronted with anything negative. Also, I recommend getting in touch with a priest about your concerns if it continues. An easy prayer to use at any time is the Jesus Prayer: "Lord Jesus Christ, son of God, have mercy on me, a sinner!"

    Some things are only solved via prayer and fasting- and the apostles even found this difficult!

    Find a church and go! Don't delay! You can go here to find a church with priests more than willing to help you: Orthodoxy in America


    PRAYERS BEFORE SLEEP

    Then the following prayers in order, with attention and compunction.

    Prayer
    O Eternal God and King of all creation, Who hast granted me to arrive at this hour, forgive me the sins that I have committed today in thought, word and deed, and cleanse, O Lord, my humble soul from all defilement of flesh and spirit. And grant me, O Lord, to pass the sleep of this night in peace, that when I rise from my bed I may please Thy most holy Name all the days of my life and conquer my flesh and the fleshless foes that war with me. And deliver me, O Lord, from vain and frivolous thoughts, and from evil desires which defile me. For Thine is the kingdom, the power and the glory of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, now and ever, and to the ages of ages. Amen.

    Prayer
    O All-Ruler, Word of the Father, Jesus Christ, Thou Who art perfect, never in Thy great mercy leave me, but ever abide in me, Thy servant. O Jesus, Good Shepherd of Thy sheep, deliver me not to the revolt of the serpent and leave me not to the will of satan, for the seed of corruption is in me. Lord, adorable God, Holy King, Jesus Christ, guard me asleep by the unwaning light, Thy Holy Spirit, by Whom Thou didst sanctify Thy disciples. O Lord, grant me, Thy unworthy servant, Thy salvation on my bed. Enlighten my mind with the light of understanding of Thy Holy Gospel. Enlighten my soul with the love of Thy Cross. Enlighten my heart with the purity of Thy Word. Enlighten my body with Thy passionless Passion. Keep my thoughts in Thy humility. And rouse me in good time to glorify Thee, for Thou art supremely glorified, with Thy eternal Father, and Thy most Holy Spirit forever. Amen.

    Prayer
    O Lord, Heavenly King, Comforter, Spirit of Truth, have compassion and mercy on Thy sinful servant and pardon my unworthiness, and forgive me all the sins that I humanly committed today, and not only humanly but even worse than a beast - my voluntary sins, known and unknown, from my youth and from evil suggestions, and from my brazenness, and from boredom. If I have sworn by Thy Name or blasphemed it in thought, blamed or reproached anyone, or in my anger have detracted or slandered anyone, or grieved anyone, or if I have got angry about anything, or have told a lie, if I have slept unnecessarily, or if a beggar has come to me and I despised or neglected him, or if I have troubled my brother or quarrelled with him, or if I have condemned anyone, or have boasted, or have been proud, or lost my temper with anyone, or if when standing in prayer my mind has been distracted by the glamour of this world, or if I have had depraved thoughts or have overeaten, or have drunk excessively, or have laughed frivolously, or have thought evil, or have seen the attraction of someone and been wounded by it in my heart, or said indecent things, or made fun of my brother's sin when my own faults are countless, or been neglectful of prayer, or have done some other wrong that I cannot remember - for I have done all this and much more - have mercy, my Lord and Creator, on me Thy wretched and unworthy servant, and absolve and forgive and deliver me in Thy goodness and love for men, so that, lustful, sinful and wretched as I am, I may lie down and sleep and rest in peace. And I shall worship, praise and glorify Thy most honourable Name, with the Father and His only-begotten Son, now and ever, and for all ages. Amen.

    Prayer
    O Lord, our God, in Thy goodness and love for men forgive me all the sins I have committed today in word, deed or thought. Grant me peaceful and undisturbed sleep. Send Thy Guardian Angel to guard and protect me from all evil. For Thou art the guardian of our souls and bodies, and to Thee we ascribe glory, to the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, now and ever, and to the ages of ages. Amen.

    Prayer
    O Lord our God, in Whom we believe and Whose Name we invoke above every name, grant us preparing for sleep relaxation of soul and body, and keep us from all temptations and dark pleasures. Stop the rushing of passions, and quench the burning of bodily tensions. Grant us to live chastely in word and act, that we may live a life of heroic virtue and not fall away from Thy promised blessings. For Thou art blessed for ever. Amen.

    Prayer
    O Lord, accept me in penitence. O Lord, leave me not. O Lord, lead me not into temptation. O Lord, grant me good thoughts. O Lord, grant me tears and remembrance of death and compunction. O Lord, grant me the thought of confessing my sins. O Lord, grant me humility, chastity and obedience. O Lord, grant me patience, courage and meekness. O Lord, plant in me the root of all blessings, the fear of Thee in my heart. O Lord, grant me to love Thee with all my mind and soul, and always to do Thy will. O Lord, protect me from certain people, and demons, and passions, and from every other harmful thing. O Lord, Thou knowest that Thou actest as Thou wilt; may Thy will be also in me, a sinner, for blessed art Thou for ever. Amen.

    Prayer
    O Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, for the sake of Thy most honourable Mother, Thy fleshless Angels, Thy Prophet and Forerunner and Baptizer, all the God-inspired Apostles, the radiant and victorious Martyrs, the holy and God-bearing Fathers, and by the prayers of all Saints, deliver me from the besetting presence of the devil. My Lord and Creator, Who desirest not the death of the sinner, but that he should be converted and live, grant also conversion to me, wretched and unworthy, snatch me from the jaws of the pernicious serpent, who is ravening to devour me and drag me down to hell alive. My Lord, my Comfort, Who wast clothed in corruptible flesh for my miserable sake, deliver me from misery and grant comfort to my miserable soul. Implant in my heart to fulfil Thy commandments, and forsake my evil deeds, and to receive Thy joys. Save me, for I hope in Thee, O Lord. Amen.

    Prayer of intercession
    O good Mother of the good King, most pure and blessed Virgin Mary, pour out the mercy of thy Son and our God on my passionate soul and guide me in good works by thy prayers, that I may pass the rest of my life without defilement, and find paradise through thee, O Virgin Mother of God, who alone art pure and blessed.

    Prayer of Intercession O Angel of Christ, my holy Guardian and Protector of my soul and body, forgive me all my sins of today. Deliver me from all the wiles of the enemy, that I may not anger my God by any sin. Pray for me, sinful and unworthy servant, that thou mayest present me worthy of the kindness and mercy of the All-holy Trinity and the Mother of my Lord Jesus Christ, and of all the Saints. Amen.

    (Here one says a prayer to one's Patron Saint.)
    Queen of the Heavenly Host, Defender of our souls, we thy servants offer to thee songs of victory and thanksgiving, for thou, O Mother of God, hast delivered us from dangers. But as thou hast invincible power, free us from conflicts of all kinds that we may cry to thee: Rejoice, unwedded Bride.

    Most glorious, Ever-Virgin, blessed, Mother of Christ our God, present our prayer to thy Son and our God, and pray that through thee He may save our souls.
    I put all my hope in thee, O Mother of God. Guard me under thy protection. O Virgin Mother of God, despise not me, a sinner, needing thy help and protection, and have mercy on me, for my soul hopes in thee.

    Prayer (Lacking the opportunity of asking pardon of each person.)
    O God, absolve, remit, and pardon our voluntary and involuntary sins, in word and deed, known and unknown, by day and by night, in mind and thought; forgive us all, in Thy goodness and love for men.

    Prayer of Intercession
    O Lord, Lover of men, forgive those who hate and wrong us. Do good to those who do good. Grant our brothers and relatives their saving petitions and eternal life. Visit the sick and grant them healing. Guide those at sea. Travel with travellers. Struggle alongside the Orthodox. To those who serve and are kind to us, grant remission of sins. On those who have charged us, unworthy as we are, to pray for them, have mercy according to Thy great mercy. Remember, O Lord, our fathers and brothers who have fallen asleep, and grant them rest where the light of Thy countenance shines. Remember, O Lord, those who bear fruit and do good works in Thy holy churches and grant them their saving petitions and eternal life. Remember also, O Lord, us Thy humble, sinful and unworthy servants, and enlighten our minds with the light of knowledge of Thyself, and guide us in the way of Thy commandments, by the prayers of our immaculate Lady, Mother of God, and Ever-Virgin Mary, and of all Thy Saints, for Thou art blessed to the ages of ages. Amen.

    Daily Confession of Sins
    I confess to Thee, my Lord, God and Creator, to the One glorified and worshipped in Holy Trinity, to the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, all my sins which I have committed all the days of my life, at every hour, in the present and in the past, day and night, in thought, word and deed; by gluttony, drunkenness, secret eating, idle talking, despondency, indolence, contradiction, neglect, aggressiveness, self love, hoarding, stealing, lying, dishonesty, curiosity, jealousy, envy, anger, resentment, and remembering wrongs, hatred, mercenariness; and by all my senses: sight, hearing, smell, taste, touch; and all other sins, spiritual and bodily, through which I have angered Thee, my God and Creator, and caused injustice to my neighbours. Sorrowing for this, but determined to repent, I stand guilty before Thee, my God. Only help me, my Lord and God, I humbly pray Thee with tears. Forgive my past sins by Thy mercy, and absolve me from all I have confessed in Thy presence, for Thou art good and the Lover of men. Amen.

    Prayer(To be said pointing at the bed.)
    O Lord, Lover of men, is this bed to be my coffin, or wilt Thou enlighten my wretched soul with another day? Here the coffin lies before me, and here death confronts me. I fear, O Lord, Thy Judgment and the endless torments, yet I cease not to do evil. My Lord God, I continually anger Thee, and Thy immaculate Mother, and all the Heavenly Powers, and my holy Guardian Angel. I know, O Lord, that I am unworthy of Thy love, but deserve condemnation and every torment. But, whether I want it or not, save me, O Lord. For to save a good man is no great thing, and to have mercy on the pure is nothing wonderful, for they are worthy of Thy mercy. But show the wonder of Thy mercy on me, a sinner. In this reveal Thy love for men, lest my wickedness prevail over Thy unutterable goodness and mercy. And order my life as Thou wilt.

    (As sleep is the image of death, at night we pray for the departed.)
    With the Saints give rest, O Christ, to the souls of Thy servants where there is no pain, no sorrow, no sighing, but life everlasting.

    (When about to lie down in bed, say
    Lighten my eyes, O Christ God, lest I sleep in death, and lest my enemy say: I have prevailed over him.

    Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit.
    Be my soul's Defender, O God, for I step over many snares. Deliver me from them and save me, O Good One, in Thy love for men.
    Now and ever, and to the ages of ages. Amen.

    Let us not silently hymn the most glorious Mother of God, holiest of holy Angels, but confess her with heart and mouth to be the Mother of God, for she truly bore God incarnate for us, and prays without ceasing for our souls. Amen.

    Kiss your cross, and make the sign of the Cross from head to foot of the bed and from two sides, and then say:
    Prayer Let God arise, and let His enemies be scattered; and let those who hate Him flee from His presence. As smoke vanishes, let them vanish; and as wax melts from the presence of fire, so let the demons perish from the presence of those who love God and who sign themselves with the Sign of the Cross and say in gladness: Hail, most precious and life-giving Cross of the Lord, for Thou drivest away the demons by the power of our Lord Jesus Christ crucified on thee, Who went down to hell and trampled on the power of the devil, and gave us thee, His venerable Cross, for driving away all enemies. O most precious and life-giving Cross of the Lord, help me with our holy Lady, the Virgin Mother of God, and with all the Saints throughout the ages. Amen.

    (Just before getting into bed, say
    Guard me, O Lord, by the power of Thy holy and life-giving Cross, and keep me from all evil.

    (Just before yielding yourself up to sleep, say
    Into Thy hands, O Lord Jesus Christ, my God, I surrender my spirit and body; bless me, save me, and grant me eternal life. Amen.

    I'm actually not surprised at that, since New Age shops sell Bibles alongside magic books, and many occultists call themselves Christian because they think it's the right label for them - as in they had parents or grandparents who went to church, or even because they were born in America.

    Have a personal devotion time with God every day, reading a passage of Scripture and praying to him. If any spirits give you a hard time wither before, after, or during, tell them to go away in the name of Jesus Christ.

    Are you a baptized believer? If not, you want to get that taken care of. If we've been born again, then we can have the authority to repel demons. If not, I wouldn't bet on it.
