Exorcisms & Demonic Interactions

Show Archive
Date: Monday - July 16, 2007
Host: George Noory
Guests: Archbishop James Long, Josh Reynolds

Ordained exorcist and paranormal investigator, Archbishop James Long, spoke about exorcism cases and his investigations with the paranormal. Demons, he suggested, surround us all the time, and they can try to overcome a person's will or intellect. In the 'Emily Rose' case, the possessed girl ate insects and slept on a stone floor. She named some of the demons possessing her as Lucifer, Judas, Nero and Hitler, but Long conjectured this might have been a deception, as demons don't like to reveal their names.

He described one exorcism he worked on with a young girl who'd gotten involved in witchcraft and when they entered her room, it was ice cold. After she attacked two priests, they got permission from her mother to restrain her (an important legal issue— there must be consent for the restraint-- he noted). "We knew weren't dealing with a little girl," but a demonic entity whose purpose was destroy a soul, he explained.

A less severe form of demonic interaction is called "infestation" and can manifest as a sense of hovering or something brushing past you, growling, scratching, lights turning on and off and unpleasant odors. Use of the Ouija board can open a person up to such infestations, he warned. Long also shared some of his experiences at the haunted Waverly Hills Sanatorium-- on a number occasions he witnessed 'Shadow People' passing through a room.

Brain Power

First hour guest, brain health expert Josh Reynolds discussed new brain research and mental fitness exercises. Stress kills brain cells, causing mental function to decline over time, he said. "Speed seeing" such as scanning a number of items fast on a grocery shelf helps to fire up synapses, he added. Reynolds' site offers a free 'brain power' test.
