Astral parasites and predatory spirits attack, harass, and possess individuals who are weak or vulnerable. This especially true with people who are suffering from low self-esteem, trauma, addiction, medical illness, or difficult relationships.We see this in nature when wild animals, like lions, prefer to prey on young or sick animals, as opposed to healthy adults.
Astral parasites are attracted to people's emotions, including anger, sadness, grief, and hatred. While they may not necessarily create the person's condition (such as depression), they feed on our lower emotional vibrations and exacerbate the medical or psychological disorder. While this kind of parasitic invasion does not qualify as full-blown spirit possession, astral entities does cause harm to their unsuspecting victims. As astral predators and parasitic negative energies are all around us. You could think of them as being like mosquitoes, except they feed on your vital life force, rather than your blood.
We need to understand that many different spiritual beings and alien species reside on this planet. We go about our daily routines without having any knowledge of their presence among us. Extra-dimensional entities also make regular visits our reality. These resident spirits and astral entities come in many varieties, shapes, and forms. They are as numerous as the many living creatures we are familiar with in the physical world.
Since the world is not black and white, it's difficult to determine when a person is under attack by a predatory spirit. A supernatural attack can be as dramatic as the kind seen in Hollywood horror movies, or so subtle, that a person's condition is attributed to normal stress or common viruses.
I'm not trying to scare people by suggesting that demons and devils are everywhere. The supernatural world is very much a part of the natural world. I sometimes call it the "hidden world" or the "invisible world". The spiritual realms are the dimensions that lie beyond our physical senses due our biological limitations and filtering systems.
In some ways, our ignorance of lower vibrational life-forms and malicious higher intelligent beings (IE. demons) protects us from them. By this, I mean, that since we do not notice these troublesome spirits, they do not get the attention and energy needed to launch a targeted assault against us. On the other hand, our lack of awareness of predatory entities and meddlesome spirits allows them to go unnoticed and wreak havoc in our lives.
The truth is, a person's illness could have multiple causes, including a spiritual source, medical illness, and emotional distress. This means a person could benefit from traditional medical treatment, psychotherapy, alternative healing, and spiritual counseling.
I feel it's very easy to see astral predators at work on the mentally ill. This particularly true with patients who have been identified or diagnosed with psychiatric disorders like psychosis, schizophrenia, dissociative identity disorder, and post-traumatic stress disorder.
This does not mean that every person who has one of the mental conditions is under spiritual attack. However, it could mean that the individual is susceptible to going into a dissociated or altered state, where they are confronted with disturbing imagery, and uncommon communication with otherworldly beings. This means many so-called mentally ill persons can access or perceive other dimensions, and realities. After all, what is the real difference between a person who channels extra-dimensional beings, or receives spirit communications, and one who exhibits similar behaviors, but who is disturbed by the experience, and seeks medical treatment for it.
