One year ago on Halloween I had my first real experience where I understood what human spirits are, and I wrote my first post about them. Before that the concept of human spirits and astral travel was still so new to me. I had a very vague understanding of what human spirits were and how they worked. Here I am a year later, and my knowledge and understanding have grown immensely. There is very little information on human spirits available today, and so I would like to share some of what I know, in order to help educate those who are on the path to seeking a deeper understanding.
What exactly are human spirits? Contrary to the name, human spirits are not actually the spirits of humans, but the souls. I’m not actually sure why they are called “human spirits”, but it doesn’t seem to be important to know at this point. The human soul has the ability to leave the body and travel outside of it. In order to understand this, let’s look a little at what makes up a human being.
Humans are three parts in one, just as God is. “Now may the God of peace himself sanctify you completely, and may your whole spirit and soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ”. 1 Thessalonians 5:11. Creating us as three parts in one is another way we are made in the image of God.
God created humans first as spirit. All spirits first were with God, before our spirits moved into a body, or temporary home here on earth. The Bible tells us this here: “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.” Jeremiah 1:5. God did not just chose Jeremiah before He formed Him, He chose all of us before He formed us. We read this here in Ephesians 1:12-13 “In him we were also chosen, having been predestined according to the plan of him who works out everything in conformity with the purpose of his will, in order that we, who were the first to put our hope in Christ, might be for the praise of his glory.”
When God creates our bodies, He also gives us souls. As we see in Genesis 2:7, God breathes life into our bodies, giving us a soul. “And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.” Our soul is separate from the body and the spirit. The body is a temporary house, or temple of God. “For we know that if the earthly tent we live in is destroyed, we have a building from God, an eternal house in heaven, not built by human hands.” 2 Corinthians 5:1
Our souls are a place of thought, emotion and will. It is our soul that needs to choose salvation in Jesus Christ, because it is what is operating out of free will. We can see some examples here where the soul has free will in Job 7:15: “So that my soul would choose suffocation, Death rather than my pains.” and “My soul refuses to touch them; They are like loathsome food to me.” Job 6:7. Here is another passage where we see our soul connected to our emotions: “And Mary said, “My soul magnifies the Lord, and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior” Luke 1:46-47.
So with these passages we have a good understanding of what the human being consists of. God has made us so beautifully and so intricately, in order that we can know Him in ways so much deeper than if we were only a soul. So how exactly can a human soul leave the body and travel around outside of it? The Bible gives us examples that this is possible in Genesis 35:18 “It came about as her soul was departing (for she died), that she named him Ben-oni; but his father called him Benjamin.”
As we know the devil has a counterfeit for anything of God that he can. God allows our spirits to travel and there are several examples in the Bible. The difference is, this is initiated by God, and for His purposes, not ours. Ezekiel 37:1 “The hand of the Lord was on me, and he brought me out by the Spirit of the Lord and set me in the middle of a valley; it was full of bones.” And Revelation 4:2 “At once I was in the Spirit, and behold, a throne stood in heaven, with one seated on the throne.” Even Paul tells of traveling to the Third Heaven to be with God.
Satan wants to keep us from our inheritance and relationship with God. So he has created this form of soul travel for his purposes. When a soul leaves the body, the body is then open to be inhabited by other spirits, demonic or human. As our soul travels around it is subject to attack itself, by demonic spirits that can do astral rituals on it, or even have sex with it. The New Age Movement is a huge proponent of the benefits of astral travel, and there are tons of guides and books to help you learn how to do it. It has only gained in popularity with time, and Satan loves to continue to deceive people into believing it is perfectly safe.
It is not just people who are exploring the New Age Movement who astral travel, but also people who explicitly do it for the purposes of evil. Many witches use astral travel as a means to wreak havoc on unsuspecting victims. These astral travelers perform astral rituals over people, spy on people, harass them, and much more. Whatever a human can think to do while in this form to another human, they will do it.
What is an astral ritual? And astral ritual is a witchcraft ritual that is done by a human spirit, or a group of human spirits. They find a place in the spiritual realm to set up an altar and perform a ritual. It is exactly the same as a physical ritual, but done in the spiritual realm instead. These astral rituals directly affect whoever they are being done on or over. Because these are done in the spiritual realm, the person who is the victim of the ritual will not even know it is happening. They will feel the effects of it, but they won’t know what they are feeling or why. Most likely they will feel some sort of emotional torment, devastation, a sense of falling apart, inability to function, and things of that nature.
I have been a victim of these sort of rituals many times. It took a lot of freedom through healing and understanding of the spiritual realm and the nature of the occult to even know what was happening to me. There are many people who are victims to harassment of human spirits and never have any idea. That is because the devil wants to keep all of this information well hidden from most people, so they cannot stop it. Yet there is more to it than just being harassed.
Who is a likely candidate for being harassed by human spirits? Anyone who has every had any ties to the occult. That means generational curses, blood rites, blood ties, for starters. You may not even be aware that somewhere in your family line someone gave the ancestral line to Satan. It always stays well hidden. The whole goal of Satan is to keep any links we have to him so well hidden that we can never discover them. He always starts generations before we are even born.
You may have an ancestor somewhere in your family line that has given over rights to the entire blood line, which means rights have been given to you, and even your children. It is in your blood line. You may have family members in the occult. That can look like family that is obviously doing witchcraft or new age, or they could be in a cult. A cult is any group that has a particular belief linked back to the idealization of a particular person or deity. Usually it looks religious in nature. Some examples are Mormons, Jehovah;s Witness, and Seventh Day Adventist, just to name a few. There are far more, these are just the most popular. There are many cults that appear to be Christian from the outside as well.
Other ways can be from past family members who have been in a cult or have aligned themselves openly with witchcraft or the new age. Then there are those of us who have sought out the occult and aligned ourselves with darkness purposefully. It is very possible that if you know you have been in the occult and doing witchcraft, that you were already attached to it through family blood lines. That is why it is very important for each of us to go on our own individual healing journey, starting with a deliverance that goes to the head demon inside. Deliverance is the first step, and it helps clear out the way to get to the deeper things within ourselves.
Why do human spirits want to harass people? There are several different reasons why a someone would want to astral travel to harass others. One reason is they were assigned that job. They may be assigned to watch or spy on you. Remember, the enemy does not want us close to God. He does not want us growing in our connection to Christ and therefore becoming who He created us to be, fulfilling our call. That is his whole purpose. So he wants to keep us connected to the occult, and by watching us he can know how to act against us. He can form plans to destroy us in whichever way he deems best.
Other reasons these human spirits harass is to keep us connected to the occult. If they can come and do witchcraft over us, or astral rituals, that will keep us in bondage to the occult. Since we have no idea these things are happening, we are helpless to stop it and thereby cutting our ties to the occult. Another reason for harassment is simply because the devil wants to distract us or keep us suffering. If we are feeling the effects of human spirits or astral rituals, we have a hard time functioning or coping, yet we have no idea why. This often leads people away from Christ, because they feel so miserable yet it seems that God does not help.
How does a soul leave the body? I do not have specifics in this area yet. I only know that it is something that is very easy to do. There are tons of guides on how to do, although I don’t recommend you seek it out without guidance from the Holy Spirit. If you have ever heard of someone having an out of body experience, then that is a perfect example of leaving the body. If you have ever heard someone say they were watching an event in their life as if they were looking down on it, not actually in it, that is the same thing as astral travel. Astral travel does not have to mean you travel far from the body, you simply have to leave it.
For me, I was taught to leave my body during severe trauma and abuse in satanic rituals. It is the abuse that is so terrible that you cannot bear it that causes you to want to leave. This is why you may hear victims of any type of trauma (car accidents, etc.) or abuse say that they were watching the event as if they were looking down on what was happening. The trauma is a motivating factor to leave because the mind cannot handle the amount of trauma happening to them. For some people, leaving the body is the only reason they were able to stay alive. Otherwise the trauma would have been so detrimental it could have caused death, if not extreme damage to the mind. Humans were not designed for that much trauma, yet God gives us a way out of it.
The enemy did not create astral travel, he simply uses it for his purposes and works. He has found it extremely beneficial, and he will always find ways to use things that are not bad for his evil. Anyone who does astral travel is not bad. Astral travel does not make you evil. Doing evil does not make you evil. It is when your heart completely turns against God that you become evil, and that is not something that happens easily. No one chooses evil without some sort of belief that it is better than choosing God. It is a long process to turn someone completely against God, because we were created to live in partnership with our Creator and Father. It is in our DNA.
I know that for many people, the whole idea of human spirits, astral travel, and astral rituals is terrifying. When I first began to come into understanding of these things it was extremely confusing for me. Yet God has taught me all of this not just for my own benefit, but for yours as well. We have to be willing to come out of hiding from the knowledge of the spiritual realm and what is going on right over our heads and in our lives. Otherwise we will be unable to fight the good fight against the enemy that seeks to destroy us.
God knows our hearts, every one of us. He is not worried about our salvation. If you have given your life to Christ, then God knows this, and He honors the covenant He has made with you. He does not go back on His promises. God only cares about bringing you to where you were made to be. With Him through Christ. That means removing the veil and cleansing us of all darkness, so we can do the good works He created us for before we were ever born. In order to do this, we have to do the work to heal whatever covenants with darkness are within us.
This is not something to fear, but something to rejoice in! Rejoice because this is such a wonderful opportunity for you to partner with the Lord, and walk with Him in this. It’s an opportunity to get to know God so much deeper, and to learn who you really are in Christ! These are all things we are missing out on, because we have remained ignorant of any strongholds keeping us in bondage. It takes a humble heart to admit you have a problem, and an even more contrite heart to admit that there are alignments with darkness within us. I know, because I have been walking through it for an entire year.
It has been difficult at best for me to allow Jesus into the darkest parts of my soul, because that meant I had to look at those places myself. Jesus already knew they were there, but He was not allowed in because I had exercised free will to say no to Him. Yet it was all fear and shame that kept me from going there, and that was jut another tactic of the devil. This past year may have been hell for me, but it has also been experiencing God the Father in the most amazing ways, and seeing that I am very loved, no matter what. What a revelation!
We are all on our own journey in this life. The difference is whether we are willing to take chances to be with God. Because that’s what healing is. It’s getting to really experience and know God the way He intended us to. Just like Adam and Eve in the Garden, but even better! For me, it is completely worth it all. Ever hardship, every pain, every event of my life that lead me to where I am now, has been 100% worth Jesus Christ. If He can die for me, then I can certainly die for Him. Yet my death is to self, and the chains of the devil. That is not something to fear, it is very simply a miracle!
Let’s come together and fight this fight that God has set before us. Let us walk together and hold each other up through it. You are not alone, no matter how bad it feels. You have persevered this far, so surely God will strengthen you to keep going! It is His will for you to find freedom and victory through Christ. That is why Christ has come for us. Let us wash ourselves clean by the blood of the lamb and the words of our testimony, so that when the day comes, we will be the spotless bride, prepared for His arrival.
Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called when you made your good confession in the presence of many witnesses. 1 Timothy 6:12
