I have a few books that I have accumulated on the subject of Exorcism and Demons. The ususal books, “Hostage to the Devil”, “An Exorcist Tells His Story”, and “The Dark Sacrament”. I do not consider myself to be overly into this stuff, but I have always been interested in learning about it and hearing some of the stories. I have also seen the major movies about exorcism. I saw “The Exorcist” before I was Catholic, and have since seen “The Exorcism of Emily Rose”.
Here’s the problem. Each time I decide to read one of the books, I find myself having some difficulties sleeping. After watching the Emily Rose movie, I woke up for several nights at the same time she did in the movie. I really don’t think this is being caused by anything other than my own mind playing tricks on me. After a time, it stopped and everything was fine. Now, I am reading “The Dark Sacrament”. Guess what, I am waking up again around 3am each night. Again, I honestly feel this is just my own mind playing tricks on me.
As I said above, I really don’t feel like I am overly focused on this subject, and I’m certainly not obsessed. Other than not reading these books, does anyone have any thoughts on this or even some suggestions?
