Same here Shelly.  Funny how someone else having a similar experience (paranormal or not) validates your own experience.  That's why I always try to share openly...you never know who might benefit from it.   :)

Hey Shelly and Damian.....try watching all four seasons of Desperate Housewives in a one week period.  You'll be puking your guts out each time you see it or hear the theme song.  I came very very close!  It's like your body gets overloaded on one thing and reacts.  Too weird!

If anyone is interested in further reading, I'd be happy to recommend some books

Hey Jen. What books would you recommend to get started in this field of study? Looking more at the analytical / scholarly perspective. This field of study has always been a huge draw for me. I find it fascinating. I do understand the dangers of walking down the path... but it never hurts to be informed.  ;D

Demonology is not a science by default, it is a Religious belief. The Holy Bible does not support the belief in ghosts, only demons. Catholics take this a bit further as each Diocese must have one Priest able to perform exorcisms. Are Demons real? Are evil people real? Demons are fallen Angels that have choose to follow Satan. Demons want man kind to turn away from God, and seek earthly pleasures. The real question should be is man wicked because of Demons tempting him, or because mans wickedness is inherit, every person can answer that as they see fit.

There are many other belief systems regarding demons.

The word "demon" comes from the Greek word "daimon", which was a guiding spirit or muse, or the source of genius.

In medieval times, mental illness was regarded as demonic possession.

In Tibetan Buddhism, demons are generated from the mind stream. This means, basically, that demons are thought forms generated by a highly creative mind. Sometimes they can appear to have a life of their own. The so-called "Tibetan Book of the Dead", is an instruction manual for dissolving these thought forms. Also, in Tibetan Buddhism there is a belief in "basic goodness" as opposed to "original sin".

As the times change, the concept of demons changes as well.
Fascinating topic. Thanks for bringing it up again!
