What is an exorcism vs deliverance?
An exorcism is a liturgical rite that is carried out on people who are possessed. Deliverance is a series of private prayers prayed over people who suffer from some type of demonic influence.
Only a priest with the dressed permission of his bishop may perform an exorcism. Otherwise anyone, clergy/religious/lay people may perform prayers of deliverance. Brother Benedicto Cypriano performs the latter. There are many negative spirits that do many
negative things. When a person becomes spiritually or emotionally weak, they can be influenced by negative spirits, demons and devils. These entities can attack individuals, families, homes, and businesses. They can be territorial. Most of these kinds of problems
can be taken care of through personal, home, and business clearings which respond well to Brother Benedicto Cypriano.
When Spirits Attack People
Negative spirits, meaning spirits with bad intentions, and also demonic spirits, which
are far more powerful, can and do attack individuals. Very often the individual is unaware of any outside interference or suggestion. Negative feelings, anger, depression, substance abuse, and more, can weaken an individual's life force, becoming more susceptible
to attack by outside influences. Even living people who may be thinking about you in a hostile manner, is a form of attack, even if unintentional. Most of these attacks are emotional in nature. And that is one of the most dangerous areas to manipulate. Rage
and anger, and other hostile or self-defeating feelings are intensely felt and generated outwards, these entities seek to influence the emotional states of mind of others. Spirits can come close to us, unseen, generating large amounts of emotional energy which
can easily permeate and attach into our own energy fields, and mixing with their own emotional states of mind. Usually to bad effect.
When Spirits Attack Families
Negative and demonic spirits can also attack families and
groups. The goal is usually to destroy the fabric of the family unit. Relationships can be fragile anyway, and the influence of an attacking spirit or more than one Spirit can have a devastating effect upon the emotional stability of the family or group unit.
Deliverance work can assist in unhexing and breaking such curses.
Negative spirits who are mentally unhealthy or emotionally violent can be territorial and feel they own property, although they are not physical, and do
not belong there. Very often a home clearing will take care of negative emotional energies or negative spirits that are affecting a home. If there is a sustained attack and history of attack, an exorcism might be more suitable. These hauntings may be a benign
as visual sightings, sounds and even distasteful odors. But they can also attack people in there presence.
