Discerning The Ghosts 'In Hiding' Versus Manifested Ghosts In People

By Sean M. Clarke | Submitted On October 20, 2007

We sit at the edge of our seats when watching a movie like 'The Exorcism of Emily Rose'. Such violent and obvious ghost manifestations are very visible and show a ghost fully manifested. But is there such a thing as 'a ghost in hiding' (unmanifest)? This article discusses the two forms of ghost possession, the manifest and unmanifest possession.

Ghosts though neither visible to the gross eye, nor perceived by the other sense organs, mind and intellect affect all of mankind. The manifestations of distress due to ghosts or negative energies are varied, and can be from a person displaying uncharacteristic behaviour to erratic violent behaviour. Ailments and disorders such as addictions, various physical and psychological illnesses, family problems, business problems etc. can be caused due to possession or manifestation of ghosts.

The meaning of a ghost being 'manifest' versus being 'unmanifest'.

A person can be fully possessed by a ghost (demon, devil, negative energy, etc.) and yet both the person and people around him could be completely unaware about it. This is because of the fact that the possessing ghost does not reveal its presence as it knows that once it reveals itself, the person possessed and those around him will seek help and force the ghost out.

In simple words when we say that the particular ghost that has possessed a particular person is unmanifest - we mean the ghost has not revealed its presence yet.

And when we say that the particular ghost that has possessed a particular person is manifest - we mean that it has revealed itself and its consciousness is to the fore.

When do ghosts manifest themselves?

As a general rule ghosts never like to manifest unless it is of its own accord. Ghosts manifest on their own accord when:

They are in a comfortable environment which is entrenched in raja-tama. Raja-tama situations include places where people indulge in plotting against society in any form, alcohol, drugs, cigarette smoking, promiscuous sexual behaviour, dimly lit places, loud music etc. In such venues we see people behaving quite different from their normal behaviour, it is actually the ghost manifesting either partially or fully.
A ghost manifests many a time to intimidate, scare or disrupt family life by causing fights etc. Higher level ghosts also manifest when they want to create wider scale destruction through the person that they possess.
They also manifest to disrupt the spiritual practice of the person whom they have possessed. This is done by them so that they disturb or frighten those around, who may be in a spiritual meeting. When ghosts manifest on their own accord, it is unlikely that the manifestation will go noticed unless the ghost wants it to be noticed.

How are Ghosts (demons, devils, negative energies, etc.) forced to manifest?

Sometimes, ghosts possessing a person are forced into manifesting and exposing themselves. The reasons for these types of manifestations include:

The ghost is overpowered by the purity of the place such as in the case of a spiritual healing session and its spiritual strength is depleted.
The time has come for the ghost to leave the person because of completion of the give-and-take account (destiny) between the affected person and itself.
The time has come for the ghost to be destroyed.

A person possessed by a ghost manifests when he is under pure or holy influence, this happens because:

It feels uncomfortable when it comes in contact with a highly spiritually evolved person, place or item such as Holy water.
It manifests because the purity and sanctity of the place, person or item it has come into contact with is more than it's own strength.

At such times the ghost tries to avoid such places by

Putting thoughts into the person that it is possessing to stay away from anything pure and Holy such as a spiritual meeting.
Going out of the body and vicinity while the person is in a pure environment or
Hiding in the physical, mental or intellectual body of the person by surrounding itself with a thick covering of its black energy to fend off the purity.

The most dangerous aspect of demonic possession

At the point of full manifestation during a spiritual healing session, the ghost is generally at its weakest.

The real danger is when the ghost controls a person through stealth, with the person unaware of the possession. The ghost makes the person it possesses act according to its will. Even though a person is possessed, there is generally nothing dramatic or deviant in the behaviour of the person.

Addictions are just one example of insidious possession. Society thinks of addiction to cigarettes or alcohol as a psychological affliction, when actually it is a case of possession. At times, a person may show serious aberrations in behaviour due to the controlling ghost. Ghosts can make a person do things that are completely contrary to their personality, for example a conservative woman by nature behaving in a promiscuous manner.

The need to understand ghost manifestations

People possessed by ghosts seem to be very normal people and one may not realize that he/she is possessed by a ghost, therefore it is important to know the different types of manifestations.
