How does a Haunting affect our relationships?
Team PROPHET was asked to consult on an alleged haunting a few days ago.
It was a little disturbing to me and my wife... A fellow investigator...
The story starts out as a special occasion for a husband and wife... An anniversary? A special occasion? We are not allowed to disclose to assure the privacy of the clients. The clients are "Your Ghost Stories Members "also. But a demonic force has other plans for the couple.
They came home after a nice dinner, and right away they realized items out of place. The wife noticed the items first, some with sentimental value to this particular occasion.
She has so many times before questioned her husband about the disappearance of the items that held sentimental value. He proclaims that he never entered the house after work so he could not have moved the items in question. But she tends to vent on him first, before rationalizing the issue. This is but a daily issue that is quickly dispersed with normal hustle and bustle of everyday lives and never amounts to more than snicker or eye rolling-however not acceptable behavior on a special occasion.
Then it escalates... Both the husband and wife stated they felt a rise in the temperature as they get frustrated with each others' inability to find a resolve about the issue.
They go to bed angry!
Each one wakes up with bruises. The husband is swollen on the knee and sports bruises on the wrist. The wife has deep purple bruises on the back.
This is not uncommon with a demonic haunting.
What disturbs me is this:
The ability of a demonic presence to push the right buttons for us to lose our own humanity. This was a special day and very sentimental to both, however all was lost to a simple act from a ghost that quietly watches in the dark. Plays with their emotions at will. This demon pitted husband and wife against each other when they were at their best; this just shows how each of us needs to stay focused on the prize and how vulnerable humanity is.
Humanity is the prize, a toy for the demonic forces. Weather it is a sweet child laughing uncharistically at a squirrel getting hit by a car or a dad ignoring his child when he is hurt.
This is but a simple fix.
The demon watches and waits to show his ugly head.
PROPHET sent the couple off, with this advice.
One demon is never better than two lovers.
