    What if angels were merely reflections of our good or 'higher self' and these 'demons' so many go on about are reflections of their bad or 'lower self' could this be why only certain people see such things because the two are out of synch as we all have good and bad in us, and no i've not been drinking

    I would say Demons are more of a personification of what we feel is "evil." When we fight ourselves, and have those "ugly" thoughts. Personal demons are those demons that we see.

    Yeah, like our darker thoughts and emotions you mean?

    Yep. I would say those are demons that the individual's mind creates.

    IMO we can guess and assume all we want, but the answer lies not on this side of the veil, but on the other.

    I feel that evil (both physical and spiritual) exists only as a part of the experience we agreed to live before we became part of the physical. All things we experience are meant for our personal growth and for learning.

    Do some spiritually in tune people believe that demons are not real? That they are just what we make up in our minds to define an addiction, a reason for criminal behavior, or negative emotions? Wow. Since my baptism in 1984, I have been able to see them as well as angels and elementals, just as easily as I have been able to see deceased loved ones my whole life. Spiritual warfare is something I believe in...teaching people how to protect themselves. If a demon was simply an unhappy thought, why would we need astral shielding, grounding exercises, and astral protection?

    Hi Carolyn, I don't believe in sword wielding, horned beasts which lay in wait for us each night on the astral, which is what a lot of people describe. However I do know there are many dark energies out there, just as there are dark energies on the earth there are in spirit too, and they can cause serious damage, some are extremely dark and dangerous.

    I totally believe in using protection for spiritual work it's very important imo

    I think the answer lies somewhere in between. IMO, angels and fallen are beings of light and darkness, which is, they are beings whose bodies are made of *energy* rather than flesh. There can be positive energy, or negative, right?

    We can choose to attract positive or negative energy, that is, we can revel in the light or push it away and welcome darkness. IMO the angels, helpful spirits, and lower beings and spirits who are up to no good, they are actual beings that exist whether or not we believe. But we either attract or repel them.

    ***Also I think that yes, we can create personal demons... if you start storing up negative energy and you feed that storage, you create a demon. Positive/neg. energy can be an extension of our consciousness and manifest itself.

    But that's not to say there aren't also beings we'd call angels & demons, who emerge not from our consciousness but from the universal consciousness and God's creation. I hope all this rambling made sense.

    Hi

    Not ramblings at all--IMO very very close to the truth!

    We create our own world down here in the earth plane.
