That is an interesting story bfree. I don't pretend to really understand what you went through. I do know there are evil spirits out there and this being the case, deception is a primary weapon in their arsenal. I believe evil spirits have deceived the masses and especially our governments, schools and religious organizations. When they haunt you then you can rebuke them in the name of the Lord Jesus. I am sure you will find this very effective. Also realize that there is scripture in the new testament that says that salvation doesn't automatically come with rebuking these entities.
I was wondering. Let me ask you something. I am interested in energy and I believe thoughts are energy and manifest themselves partly in the form of frequencies. I was thinking if you eliminate negative frequencies and use thoughts support a positive state of mind, you may experience states of enlightenment and peace that you describe. Does this make sense?
