The front door locked demon gets me again!

This just occurred a few minutes ago and I hope y'all get a bit of a laugh over it. I had only just started a shower after getting the water to my favorite temperature when the front door lock demon voice broke in:

"Did you lock the front door after getting the mail?"

"Yes" I responded.

"Did you really?" says the demon.

I say "Well I'm pretty sure".

"Oh yeah, really?" he says.

I say, "Yeah, really!"

Demon goes, "Ok, if pretty sure is good enough for you I guess you locked the door. But you know that you're standing here under the shower buck naked, what if........."

Then I go "Shit"! out loud and not wanting to stop the shower altogether, just leave the water running and step out dripping wet. Through the bedroom, past the laundry area and into the kitchen, then to the living room. I'm without my glasses so I have to get up close to see that the door is indeed locked dripping water all over the place. My cat, Little Dude who is snoozing on the floor nearby lifts his head up giving me one of those looks: "WTF, silly hooman."

Then back to finish my shower :D It makes me laugh. At least I have overcome the "Did you leave the Jeep lights on?" demon.

I would say that sounds like a negative internal voice of your own. We all have our own negative/bad voices when we are anxious in life over silly things, that's part of the ocd.

I would just relax a bit more, buy some sage, and burn it and put it around the house. You will feel a lot calmer about yourself.

I don't consider the OCD voices as negative or positive. I can choose to listen and pay attention to the voice or choose to ignore it. This incident just struck me as humorous.

Okay. That's a bit strange. Are they are your internal voices or someone elses?

While you may consider my way of managing strange, it works for me. Each has their own way to coping. And we are all a bit strange aren't we?

I just wondered where are the voices coming from?

There are non-OCD voices that are typically critical those from family members. Those are more of a nuisance than anything, can't keep them from popping up, more easily dismissed. The OCD voice is another thing altogether. It is not my voice nor do I recognize as a voice that I've heard before not related to OCD. I wonder if that is a common phenomenon?

Right.. how about you get yourself a exorcism?

It's difficult for me to tell if you are having a bit of fun with me or are serious :-|

I am being serious, you maybe possessed. I know it sounds mad, but if you are hearing these voices I would suggest you go to your local catholic church and get a exorcism? I am having one pretty soon, a friend had one done and she was hearing all voices and god knows, turns out she was possessed by a spirit that was attached to her and he had mental health problems.

I thank-you for your concern Surreylady, but believe me when I tell you that I have had training and experience with possession and haunting related events. And have successfully participated in cleansing and numerous other such paranormal events. And believe me when I tell you that I am in no way possessed by real demons or other uninvited guests, and if that in fact what was happening I have the resources to take care of things. I apologize if you took what was intended to be a humorous anecdote as a serious condition. Please do not worry over me, God and I are on good terms.

Right okay, they must be your own anxious voices in your head. That's all I was thinking.

I only mentioned that, not because I think you are "mad" I don't. I have been experiencing problems with ghosts in my house and have had a few exorcisms on myself and just need another and to get the house blessed as I am psychic and its interfering with my mental health.

Are you a practicing psychic? Asking because if so, you would have access to others in the community for assistance. In my area the psychic community is very close and I trained under some of them. We help each other out from time to time.

I would say I am more amateur, I can connect with the spirit world which I don't like. I'm trying to get a priest in to do the exorcism and there aren't many around to do it. I am ringing again to see if I can get another to do one this week hopefully.

As I am sure you are aware, there is a strict criteria that must be met in order for the Catholic Church to authorize an exorcism by a designated Priest who specializes in such proceedings. The spiritual realm is nothing to fear as that is where the angels and our guardians dwell. In our brief exchange I would not think that an exorcism is called for in your case.

I connect with spirits in the spiritual world, and that has become a problem with my ocd because I have names on a loop! so I have attracted demonic attachments that have possessed me in many ways, mostly mentally. I got rid of most through a deliverance prayer but there are just a few more I have to get rid of through the church of england now. I have been experiencing really weird illnesses and my mum has to as well.

I think it's funny & sad at the same time. Thanks for sharing.

It's not sad at all Sunn-E. At times the OCD does get the best of me, but more often than not I am able to hear the voice for what it is and let it go. I know that OCD will always be a part of my life so I have made adjustments to live in a relatively peaceful coexistence. And yes to even see the humor is some of those interactions.

I for one can relate to your story. It is good that you can see the humor in it. Thanks for sharing!
