hauntings are the most dramatic and usually frightening type of paranormal
haunting. While the likelihood of encountering a demonic
entity is is very low (they are very
rare), it is important to be aware of the
characteristics of a possible demonic haunting. Encounters with a
nonhuman demonic entity are the most
dangerous kinds of paranormal investigations.
In May of 2006 Long Island Paranormal Investigators
took part in the first Paranormal Weekend hosted by
TAPS (The Atlantic Paranormal Society) and Darkness Radio in Warwick, RI. During
the meeting demonologists Keith and Carl Johnson ("the twins") of TAPS presented
their experiences with demonic hauntings. The Johnson's presented evidence that
most demonic hauntings follow a noticeable and predictable pattern of activity.
The following list is complied of the typical symptoms
and/or characteristics of a demonic ghost or spirit haunting. This list is organized
sequentially from the first symptoms/characteristics to appear to the last in term of
which paranormal haunting activity typically appears first in most cases of demonic
hauntings. The list shows the progression of paranormal events that usually
accompany a demonic haunting. The list is provided only as a general guide. Encounters with a demonic entity do not have to follow any of
these characteristics. Special care should always be taken with dealing with a
possible demonic entity.
- Young children and any household animals/pets begin
to react first to the presence of something.
- Children begin to see something in their bed rooms.
- Strong unpleasant smells and foul odors are
encountered in the house. The air may seem heavier in a certain part of the
house than in the rest.
- Adults in the house begin to see things too.
- Children start claiming to see a nice man
(sometimes a women) come to them in their bedrooms at night. The
apparition at first is very
pleasant and non-threatening, then turns very unpleasant, nasty and even
threatening in a very short period of time.
- The figure appears as human but no eyes
(dark/blackness where the eyes would be). Sometimes the apparition appears
with a red-ish glowing where eyes would be.
- Children wake up at night screaming that someone is
trying to hurt them.
- Adults wake up either during the night or in the
morning with scratches on their bodies.
- People in the house (adults was well as children) come
down with sudden mysterious illnesses that seem to defy diagnosis or
- Objects in the house, even very heavy ones, move on
- Objects that do move tend to move in directions
contrary to how they would normally move (such as a door trying to open the
wrong way). Or, objects move in a counter-clockwise motion.
- Very high EMF readings are present throughout the
house with no mechanical explanation.
- Unexplained events come in sets of three(3). That
is, when paranormal activity is observed it is usually in groups or sets of 3
events at a time in a short period.
- Most paranormal events happen between the hours of
9pm and 6am with 3-3:30am being the most active time.
- The nonhuman entity is most responsive to Holy
words and names (the specific religion and religious figures being
invoked does not seem to matter).
The Johnson's also stated that in their experience
demonic hauntings usually occur to people and/or families that already have a
serious problem or imbalance in their lives such as drug or alcohol abuse, or,
emotional or psychological problems. Demonic entities seem to thrive in homes
where people's mental and emotional defenses are already impaired by such
If a person or family believes they are the subject of
a demonic haunting they suggested immediately contacting
a professional paranormal group for confirmation and assistance. Additional
help and/or counseling may be required. Once the demonic entity has been
expelled it is important to maintain a positive up-beat attitude as this will
help prevent the entity from taking a foothold in the home again.
