Occult Activities and Manifestations Survey
 
 

OCCULT:  Of, relating to, or dealing with supernatural influences or phenomena

The following lists are partial compilations of various occult activities and manifestations, many of which may not be reported by counselees, explored by counselors, or seen by either as having any possible correlation.  Connections do exist, however, between many activities which are, or may be, points of contact or entanglement with demonic entities, and many experiences that are, or may be, manifestations of demonic "attachments," or demonically-mediated phenomena, influence, or oppression.

For example, some of the experiences or behavioral manifestations noted in this survey may "fit" several categories, such as demonic "attachments,"  oppression, or influence; various types of dissociation, including demonically-mediated dissociation (DMD); manifestations of alter personalities; indications of physical disease; or signs of "mental illness", unrelated to spiritual factors.  Referrals for other interventions may be necessary and should be made, if indicated.

It is suggested the counselor administer these surveys by incorporating them into a comprehensive interview, with follow-up where indicated for any clarification needed.  It should be noted, however, such an exploration, when undertaken by a Bible-believing Christian who is experienced in or sensitive to spiritual realities and spiritual warfare, may activate various manifestations found in Part I.  Spiritual intervention may be required immediately.

In addition, presentation of all the items during one interview may result in some counselees feeling overwhelmed.  Similar explorations conducted by counselors who do not believe in these realities will probably not stir the entities, who, if present, can create or mediate these manifestations. The author is not responsible for the manner in which the survey is used, hypotheses and conclusions resulting from its use, or any action or event arising from its use.
