The case of Ellen (not her real name) was a very difficult one from the very beginning when her case was brought to AMOE. She comes from a line of very powerful sorcerers and local healers from her hometown. The father himself is very well known and is feared because of his power. However, in the course of the father's lifetime he encountered the ire of two other powerful sorcerers who threatened him and his family with severe punishments. Fearful for his life and that of his family, he conjured from hell demons and made a pact with them in exchange for the safety of the family. All though the father and his family lived in peace for some more years, the old man soon succumbed to sickness which led to his demise. However, before passing away, he bequeathed to his daughter Ellen all the knowledge he knew of the dark arts, including a black book of incantations and spells. Soon after Ellen started to exercise the power given her. She became the local healer. What was truly ironic was that the local catholic priest calls on her services to accompany him for the ministry of healing to sick parishioners. Ellen also became active in parish life while at the same time quietly doing her craft.
One providential day, Ellen got hold of the book of Fr. Syquia on "Exorcism: Encounters with the Paranormal and the Occult". She began to read it This became the avenue for her conversion and enlightenment which of course as a consequence led to her experience of retaliations and eventual demonic possession...
On the day of her first pray-over, being made to sit comfortably in front of the Blessed Sacrament, the prayers have not yet started, when she began to be stiff like a log, and enter into a trance-like state where her eyes rolled and only the white of the eye can be seen. One of the priests in the team did the initial prayers -- the sealing of the senses, then four-minor exorcisms. She started to scream, and became violent. Her strength overwhelming for a very petite lady. Four abled-bodied women can not control her so two-men came to help but she was so strong that it became very difficult to control her. When the reaction and resistance became even more intense, we decided to proceed with a major exorcism. And here the battle became even more intense. As the spirit manifested itself with crass words, blasphemies, curses. Every now and then it would open the eyes of the victim and give an evil stare full of hatred at the priest. But the priest just continued on praying and commanding. After about thirty-minutes or so of continuous intense prayer, I was then asked to take over in the prayers so that the other priest can have a respite and later help restrain the possessed.
It took about seven Praecipio commands following imperative exorcisms and petition to the Blessed Virgin Mary and to St. Michael the Archangel for assistance, before the demon gave its first name. It shouted "Mormo". And when queried on why it possesses the woman, it responded: "The family belongs to me. I gave them power." Everytime the Praecipio would be repeated it gave the same name and the reason of the possession. At one point the afflicted screamed and wailed saying: "Itay, tulungan mo ako. Hirap na hirap na ako. Tama na." ( Dad, help me. I am in deep pain. Enough of this.) And this was very clear during the recitation of Exorcism Prayer III which targets occult spirits.
It would take about another hour of intense and continuous prayer before Ellen would calm down and wake up from the trance. The battle was not yet over. This we know for sure. There was no clear manifestation of expulsion of demons that happened. It seemed to us that the demon simply retreated. There is a lot do still by Ellen in order to be rid of that stubborn demon Mormo.
During the discernment. I looked up on this demon Mormo. It is not really a personal name but a type of demon. It is a demon that specializes in the dark arts and is fond of giving powers including that of healing to whoever asks of it. And then once the person is inebriated with such power invites it to conjure a demon from a higher rank but in exchange a sacrificial offering should be made.
There were other demons or manifestation of demons present during the exorcism prayers according to the AMOE equipé. There was a very big serpent coiled around Ellen which comes in and out of her body. And this big serpent is surrounded by other smaller snakes. Then there was a giant crab with its claws inside her body. There was also a dark figure of an old man with its arms around her as in an embrace. Then midget size creatures that resemble half-human and half-beast feasting on her legs and feet. The latter would probably explain why all throughout the session, Ellen kept on kicking as if trying to remove something from her legs. This reaction gave the most problem for the staff as they had difficulty controlling it and many a times became victims of the jerking which according to them was very painful as if being hit by a log.
When we asked if the demons were expelled? They only answered that they just distanced themselves for a while but did not disappear as would often be if there was an expulsion. This discernment allowed us to definitively say that the battle is just beginning and we would for sure need more sessions with Ellen before complete liberation can come. Meanwhile, she needs to continue on her spiritual journey by intensifying her prayer life and works of penance. She, her deceased father and family were too deep into bondage with the occult and with demonic powers, it would not be something the demons would give up, not without a fight. We warned her not to use her powers again as every time she would, will definitely tie her more and more to the demon that enslaves her.
It would take about four months before we would see Ellen again. Between the time she was first ministered by us and today there was another pray-over which turned out equally violent and difficult. That second time they attempted to close the occult third eye but it did not materialize simply because the reactions to the prayers remained to be very adverse and strong. After Ellen would go out of a trance she would be very weak requiring assistance even just to walk. The closing of the third eye would need to wait until she is strong enough to go through it.
Now in her third time of pray over, the manifestations of the evil spirit did not occur until around 20 minutes in the prayer. The sealing of the senses created an adverse reaction especially when the holy oil was applied to the ears. Earlier she said that she would hear voices whispering to her to go out and help the sick people and heal them with her power. The reacting during the anointing of the ears point that the voices she hears are vile and unholy. During the series of five minor exorcisms there was groaning and screaming. Again she stiffened up and entered into a trance.
When I took over and pronounced the Praecipio prayer, there was a very clear resistance on the part of the demon when she started kicking her legs and raising her hands to the ceiling and fought her way against the four women keeping her at bay. The groaning became even louder when the solemn exorcisms were pronounced. There was a very clear growl whenever the words "Ancient Dragon", "Ancient Serpent", "Evil Dragon" was mentioned. In our experience a well defined reaction to these titles of the devil signify that what we are up against is a demon conjured directly from hell.
This particular pray over was during the liturgical feast of the Queenship of Mary, and I intended very well to use that feast to taunt the evil spirit that was tormenting Ellen. Every so often I would inject the command: "The Great Mother of God, the Immaculate Virgin Mary, the Queen of Heaven and Earth, commands you! She who from the first moment of her immaculate conception crushed your proud head." It was awe-inspiring to see how vexed the unclean spirit was with those words. I repeated them over and over again in a series and the reaction remained consistent. This demon recognizes the defeat it received from the Immaculate Virgin. In several instances I said to the demon: "Why resist demon? Certainly you recognize that you are forever defeated by Jesus Christ and by His Immaculate Mother." The growl was so strong you recognize immediately the torture those words bring to the demon.
Recognizing how weakened it is, I repeated the Praecipio three times before proceeding to the other prayers of exorcism. Unable to bear the strength and power of the command "The glorious Queen of heaven and earth, the Queen of the Angels, commands you. Dicas mihi nomen tuum..." It finally shouted its name several times: "Legion, Legion, Legion!" And Ellen started to vomit, a good sign that expulsion is happening. But if indeed we are facing the biblical demon called Legion, this is a very strong enemy. That somebody has it as a possessing demon must have conjured it direct from hell. Perhaps this is the very reason it reacts strongly with the title of "Ancient Serpent" or "Ancient Dragon". But why would anybody think of conjuring it?
It is most probable that Legion was the demon conjured by the father, and the demon the father of Ellen made a pact with in exchange for the protection of the family against powerful warlocks. And apparently Ellen was consecrated to this demon as the sacrificial offering. And although the blood of animal sacrifice was used by his father, according to Ellen later on when she was queried about this, she was the one signed with this blood of the animal offered to the demon. It is no wonder that in the discernment process, the father really figured clearly in what the equipé saw. And in her dreams and visions, she saw her father torturing her because she renounced the powers she received and cut the ungodly soul ties links and bondages between her, her parents, grandparents, and all ancestors. Because of this act of renouncement of the occult, and the act of consecration to God, she has become the object of retaliation from the evil one.
We need another session or two of pray-over with Ellen. Although we have seen a breakthrough where we have two demonic names revealed that of Mormo and Legion, complete expulsion and liberation will come still much later. The spiritual journey of Ellen continues...
13 October 2015
I have not seen Ellen for about two months now. She had at least another exorcism session with another priest; I was told. However, since the latest exorcism, she is now according to the case-officer of AMOE in-charge of her case, doing well. Ellen is now able to pray from her heart, receive Holy Communion with a sense of gratitude and love towards Our Lord Jesus. She has also developed a strong devotion to Our Blessed Mother and her Rosary. From all the looks of it, she is completely healed and free. Nonetheless, she asks prayers for her siblings who are now being harassed severely by the unclean spirits because they still continue to maintain their desire for occult power. They refuse to renounce it. However, Ellen's prayer of faith and protection for her family is indeed being heeded by God because the retaliation over the siblings is a sign that God is working something as well in their hearts. We pray to the merciful Lord that the day of their awakening may come soon; so that they too may come to the knowledge of the truth and turn away from their wicked ways.
