This is not an autobiography of Ed and Lorraine Warren, but it is a book about their cases, their conversations, and an indepth look into their work.
As Ed Warren explains,there are supposedly only a handful of real Demonologists that we know of, all Catholic priests, and himself. And this work in demonology entails assisting Catholic priests who have the authority to conduct the Rite of an exorcism.
This is year 2010 and unfortunately Ed Warren has passed away but before doing so, I found out that he and Lorraine have worked together dealing with the paranormal for over 40 years. In the book they tell us about some of their cases, about their lectures, as well as what they do with a possessed item--so that it can no longer terrorize the people who owned it prior to their help. That you will find very, very interesting! I sure did!
Each time I would pick this book up to continue reading, I would ask for God's grace, keeping me safe in His Light, for my own protection from the paranormal, since I was dwelling in it by reading a book about it. I also used a book mark that had Jesus on it. It is a fearful thing...entities/spirits/demons...can come through into your life quite easily, even if you do not wish for them to do so.
Once I started the book, in no time at all I had grabbed a yellow marker and was highlighting so much information...conversations that the Warrens had with people, priests, exorcists, spirits and demons! The information was so overwhelming, I wanted to remember many aspects for when studying other paranormal materials.
The Warrens explain that it is very easy for a demon to infest/possess a person who is more friendly and nice compared to a person who has many of their own issues. It is when they gain entrance through a person who invites spirits to join them in things such as playing with an Oujiu board, interest with the occult, witchcraft, or buying a house with spirits already in it that are still 'earth bound'...those things are inlets for demon spirits.
There is so much else you will learn from the Warrens but I want to point something else out, and that is...a simple spirit/ghost, can move something that weights a pound or two. A demonic spirit can move or elevate just about anything!
Feel safe with this book, as it is the last truth that is in publication about Ed and Lorraine Warren, in their own words. It is a study of this couple with the denomic paranormal. And also you will find (whether or not you are a believer in God) that demons are believers.
And that is a good enough reason to ask God to keep me in His Light or His Presence or something of that nature as I tackle this book and any other paranormal study! But most of all, stay away from Ouji boards!
I hope you will enjoy this great book about the Warrens and their cases. This author did a terrific job. But I still wish that the Warrens would have written their own autobiography. This book will certainly do though...I hated to have it end.
The book begins by relating the Amityville story(not in-dept though), mentioning the three o`clock hour-LOLs I hated when I wake up at the time in the middle of the night- and giving a brief account of the unfortunate family(Lutz) that was hunted in their recently bought home in 1975-76. That`s it for the Amityville, do not expect to find more here, nor will you find any information here regarding the new movie "The Conjuring" that story is vaguely told in another book "House of Darkness House of Light" by Andrea Perron herself a victim/experiencer of the saga-Hollywood stretched the movie " The Conjuring" way too much-.
That being said, this is a great book, a good read though listed with a disclaimer that is a fictional book, nothing can`t be further from the truth-in a subjective way since its a matter of belief not science-. even though Ed Warren would disagree with my statement adding that this phenomena it`s a matter of evidence.
In essence what I take from this book is that God exist, and so other realms and realities unexplainable in conventional terms do indeed exist too, but never forget regardless of your particular creed that God is always in control. The Warren affirm through their own experiences that haunted houses exist; the supernatural exist; the inhuman demonic spirits exist; and that ghost exist, also that these entities need physical energy to manifest either from the person own aura, or from the atmosphere or the electrical grid. And unlike ghosts, inhuman entities feed on fear and horror because they are entities that never walked the Earth-they are the Fallen Angels-they love to dwell in places where negative energy flows such as where illegal drug deals, prostitution, murdered, quarrels, fights, cheating or for that matter witchcraft have taken place, that`s an invitation for those entities to come into anyone`s life.
Why is there too much supernatural activity going on to day?, the evil has roamed the earth forever, nothing new there but In ancient time the demonic knowledge was kept by very few wicked people, now anyone looking for extraordinary knowledge can find it easily and available on the Internet or mostly any book store has a New Age section. Also as more people is alienated from organize religion seeking elsewhere for alternatives to life, doors are left wide open for infestation to come about by people owns free will, what Lorraine Warren calls "The Adam and Eve 's trip all over again" because man long ago was warned about evil and was given a choice whether to exercise resistant to its influences. The creator cannot make that call for us, that's the heart of the matter.
This book is a warning to all of us not to mess around with the negative entities, by being bi-curious about the occult, and bringing about a possible infestation, oppression, or possession into someone`s life, Ed said, it is like an accident waiting to happen either by the law of invitation or the law of attraction. In the words of Ed Warren "Good begets good, and bad begets worse" so being positive is our best bet against evil, putting the forces of the cosmos in our favor building a good life for ourselves and those around us.
As much as I enjoyed reading this book, truth to be told, I highly doubt that most people will ever encounter similar events as the one`s unfolded in this excellent book, people in general are good, decent and hard working and for the most part hold beliefs in some sort of higher power-either through personal believe in Jesus, The Virgin Mary, Saints, Angels, or through good prophets such as Budha, muhammad, or Moses, etc, but there`s no doubt all of us will one day encounter the one to four percent(1 in 25) of demons walking among us, in our Jobs, churches, families and communities. I`m talking about the beings that lacking a total conscience, have no empathy and feel no remorse The Psychopaths-Sociopaths, beware because they will leave you broken spiritually, financially, & emotionally. Those demons are the ones we need to protect against the most. And take the advice of the Warrens seriously as well, remember emotions at home can trigger the phenomena describe in this book, and a happy home is the best defense. Finally, I deeply believe that The Creator allows this phenomena to happened as part of his divine-master plan as a kind of catalyst for the evolution of the human consciousness, and spiritual growth, specially when we straight away from the right path, and it's goes hand and hand with the phenomena of alien abduction, which is almost ALWAYS part of deamonic activity which is everything associated with the supernatural, the evil and good alike. Andrea Perron declared that demons, spirits and UFOs are intermingled in a interview but no mention was made neither on this book or Andrea's book.
I recommend this book, also see "The Rite" by Matt Baglio base on Father Garry Thomas and I also recommend books on psychopathy such as Ph.D George K Simon "In Sheep`s clothing" & Ph.D Robert D Hare "Without a conscience" or Jon Ronson "Psychopath Test"
