“Demonstrative communication includes nonverbal and unwritten communication and involves such things as facial expressions, tone of voice, and body language.” (University of Phoenix, 2011, Course Syllabus) Demonstrative communication supplements verbal communication in many ways. For example, when a salesman dresses smartly, and presents a friendly attitude he is saying I’m trustworthy and am offering a great deal. Demonstrative communication, as stated above, is done several ways via nonverbal action such as, a smile on a salesman’s face and his posture when presenting his wares. The facial expression would portray a positive image since he is smiling. The salesman’s tone of voice is another indicator of positive communication. The salesman’s body language is another factor when discussing demonstrative communication. The listener processes all the demonstrative communicationindicators and perceives an overall positive image. If the listener perceives the salesman’s demonstrative communication as deceptive or not genuine then the image would be negative and ineffective communication would occur.
Ineffective demonstrative communication can have many negative effects such as misunderstandings in the workplace and personal life. Often other difficulties with personnel can occur as a result of ineffective demonstrative communication. In the example above, if the salesman’s tone of voice was aggressive, loud and condescending then he would be an ineffective demonstrative communicator and not make any sales; therefore the experience the sender has is ineffective and a negative one. The sender’s demonstrative communication, in this case the salesman, would then cause himself to lose his job because he could not effectively achieve his goal of selling. Also if the sender’s ineffective demonstrative communication is carried over into his personal life he could become divorced...

Sleep Paralysis

...Ali Lawrence Professor White English 101 Paper 3 2nd April, 2012 Sleep Paralysis For many centuries, sleep paralysis has affected many people across the world, mostly young adults. Strange demonic forces and evil spirits seek out and torment individuals for reasons beyond imagination. Many cultures have different names for these entities, In the Malaysian culture they are known as demonic figures, the Ethiopian culture refers to them as some sort of evil spirit, and in the Chinese culture they are known as ghosts pressing down on the body. Because here in the United States, we have grown weary of the presence of demons, and demonic spirits, we tend to dismiss the beliefs of other cultures. This is not the case, because we can learn a lot from other cultures and their beliefs about sleep paralysis. According to, there are many reasons for this strange phenomenon, which can lead to sleep paralysis. Some causes and attacks, have been related to individuals opening doors to these evil spirits. Some ways of doing this, are by engaging in some sort of occult practices such as, tarot card readings, Ouija boards and channeling or meditation. There are many other ways that can open doors to these nightmares, some of them in which the person had no control of. For instance, it can be generational, if ones parents or grandparents have been involved in heavy occult rituals. This could be a father who has been initiated into the high Masonic......

Spiritual Warfare

...Spiritual Warfare in Evangelism Vickie Rommel Liberty University Online Vickie Rommel EVAN 101-B05 Professor Hensley 10/09/2015 In this discussion board we will be discussing the role of spiritual warfare specifically as it relates to the process of evangelism. Also, we will look at some specific actions we can use to fight spiritual warfare, and this wiles of the devil. As we begin, I particularly liked what Earley & Wheeler (2010) said, they used the phrase “we are the battle ground.” To me, I can envision God and Satan wrestling over us. In the Greco-Roman style of wrestling was to make your opponent to submit when you had them down, or you had them in a chokehold, and possibly at death’s door. Then I can envision as we wrestle against Satan or his demons. Satan is after the God in us because he wants to try to usurp God’s power and authority any and every way he can. The reason that we wrestle so much in evangelism, is the fact that Satan is the ruler over the world at this moment, and he does not want others accepting Christ as Lord and Savior. (Eph.6:12). He wants to try to stop the person evangelizing, by physical sickness, emotional struggles, or wants to place blinders on people’s eyes or whispers lies to them so they become deaf to God’s Word. (Matt. 11:15; 2 Cor. 4:4) Some of the specific actions we can take would be: praying for yourself, others praying for you, you and others......

Exorcism: Beliefs & Practices

...relating to exorcism- both claiming to be true and fictional- and it was a topic I was deeply curious to learn more about. This paper will explore the history and beliefs of exorcism and will also explore the role of the exorcist, which is the person who is intended to rid the affected of their demon(s) (Toner). History Exorcism, by definition and history is a strictly religious act or rite. It has strongly been related to the Catholic Church and Christian ceremonies and rituals. However, since there is the matter of demons and non-living beings involved, many consider exorcism to be a very superstitious belief as well and not necessarily just a religious one. In addition, there is history of exorcism present in Jewish tradition, ethnic religion and in the New Testament. Many believed (and still believe) that there was magic and superstition present during early exorcisms; however, this was not the case in the early years of exorcisms. According to a religious research article by Patrick Toner, “As is clear from testimonies referred to, no magical or superstitious means were employed, but in those early centuries, as in later times, a simple and authoritative adjuration addressed to the demon in the name of God, and more especially in the name of Christ crucified, was the usual form of exorcism” (Toner). According to Toner, exorcism can take on two different meanings. One is that exorcism is ‘the act of driving out, or...

How Satan Stops Prayers

...How satan Stops Our Prayers. COMBAT IN THE HEAVENLY REALM by John Mulinde,  Obsteig (Austria) Nov.  2000 I want to share with you from a testimony of someone who was saved, someone who had been serving the devil.  And when that man gave his testimony, it so challenged me, I did not want to believe it.  I had to go ten days before the Lord in fasting, asking Him, "Lord, is this true?" And it was at that time the Lord began to teach me what happens in the spiritual realm when we pray.  This man was born after his parents dedicated themselves to lucifer.  When he was still in the womb, they made so many rituals dedicating him to serve lucifer.  When he was four years old, he began to exercise his spiritual power.  And his parents began fearing him.  When he was six years, his father surrendered him to the witches to go and be trained.  And by ten years, he was doing great things in the kingdom of the devil.  He was feared by the normal witches.  He was still a young boy, but he was so terrible in the things he did.  He grew up to be a young man in his twenties with so much bloodshed on his hands.  Killed at will.  He had the ability to go out of his body through transcendental meditation.  And he could levitate.  Sometimes his body would lift off the ground and stay in the air.  And sometimes he could go into a trance, and come out of his body; his body would remain behind, and he would go out into the world, this is called......

Hrm582 Cultural Ritual

...CULTURAL RITUAL IN IVORY COAST, AFRICA: Ancestral and Spirits Worship Ike Ohanson HR-582 Week 4 Growing up in a different country made me aware of a lot of strange traditions and rituals around me. Back then, I imagined the things I saw and heard were normal until I started being open-minded to outside cultures and learning about them. Ivory Coast is a country of about 16,400,000 people in which 12% are Christian, 25% are Muslim and 63% still believe in old tradition. The old tradition is to believe in “ancestral worship”. People grow up believing that the dead become a spirit that remains in contact with us and we are taught to seek for their blessing and protection. Many ways are adopted to remain in contact with the dead spirits: one way is to sacrifice an animal like a chicken, goat or cow to them in order to get their protection. Or by donate part of money or what is important to us. We also believe in “Magic”. It is used to keep the evil spirit and anything that is supposed to hurt us away. Whenever we struggle or need guidance, people seek help from “Medicine men or Juju priests”. I actually remember going to some Juju priests with my mom when I was a kid. She went there every once in a while when something important was going to happen in our family. For example when my dad needed a big promotion at work, when my brother or sisters were getting to take a big exam at school or when we were planning a big family trip. She did so in order to get blessing from the......

It was an "ill-timed," "unnatural" or "bad omen" death. Consequently, his family and other close relatives frequently encountered problems of dealing with his spirit; they were uncertain that the appropriate performance of the morgue rituals would be effective in altering his bad spirit (kacho bayu) into good spirit (pako bayu). -—an expert in dealing with spirit was consulted by Chandra‟s brother. As many suspected, the incineration and morgue rituals had failed to alter his spirit into forefather soul and Bayu Utarnu ritual should be carried out to sooth his upset spirit. The Bayu Utarnu for Chandra‟s ghost began under the headship of a prominent spirit consultant. It comprised, nightly ritual during which the religious expert, using heavy mantras and chants, convinced the Bayu to possess intimate male allies, who performed as a spirit agent.. After this, the ritual reached its climax, the ceremony known as ‘khali khane’. On the chosen night, the possessed agent performed dance on burning coals of holy fire, thereby altering the ghost into a Pako bayu who would no longer invite ill luck to his family and relatives. Through choosen agent‟s body,......

Regardless of their previous state, it stands without argument that they fell, and that they seek embodiment in man. The Word of God tells us this in Matthew 12: 17 When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest, and findeth none. 18 Then he saith, I will return into my house from whence I came out; and when he is come, he findeth it empty, swept, and garnished. 19 Then goeth he, and taketh with himself seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter in and dwell there. . . . We also learn about demons seeking embodiment in man in the story of the Gadarene demoniac in Mark 5. The madman of Gadara was possessed with the devil and had a legion of spirits in him. If......

Pearl Bryan Research Paper

... Specifically, the skull. What was once simply activity such as doors shutting and footsteps turned into scratching, pushing and demonic possession. Carl Lawson was soon possessed by a demon. It isn’t uncommon for paranormal activity to start or take a dark turn after the discovery of some specific artifact or human remains. Mr. Mackey and his staff noticed Carl's strange behavior, and they decided to call a Pastor. The moment the pastor stepped in the building Carl ran up to him and had his hands wrapped around the pastor’s throat. Carl had to be restrained and the exorcism took over six hours to complete. It isn’t uncommon for demonic possessions to take place in areas in which suicides or tragic deaths have occurred. Also, areas where criminals have died are known to cause possessions as well (Betty, 2005, p.15). It is possible that this demonic entity was a criminal, maybe even Alonzo Walling or Scott Jackson. There are many eyewitness documents of the Exorcism taking place and there even is video that exists, after watching the video for a few brief moments, I had the chills and immediately had to close it. Unfortunately, Carl Lawson recently passed away on January 27, 2012. Janet Mackey, Bobby’s wife was very skeptical about the whole place as she had never believed in ghosts, demons & hauntings. It wasn’t until she was targeted by who she believes to be the ghost of Mr. Walling that she changed her mind. She was at the top of the stairs of Mr. Lawsons apartment......

Ghost Do Exist

...Rakiiya Hearst December 3, 2012 X155 Ghost Do Exist A ghost is generally understood to be the disembodied spirit or soul of a once-living person. I do believe ghost exist. I’ve had many experiences with ghosts and hearing others tell their experiences, just makes me believe even more. I also believe that ghosts are real because of the research me and my sister have been doing since I started believing. There was a time when I was a non-believer and didn’t think ghost existed. My youngest sister is so fascinated with ghosts and pseudoscience. We share rooms, so when she watches TV (SyFy and Paranormal shows/movies) I have no choice but to watch it. That’s how I became a believer. It’s almost as if once you watch it or read about ghosts, you start having thoughts and strange things began happening. I start seeing things out the corner of my eye or even hearing the floor creak when I was home alone and there was no wind blowing (when it’s windy outside sometimes the wood on my house will creak). Most people believe that’s your mind playing tricks on you. But I believe that once you start believing in ghost then they’ll try to reach out to you and get your attention. One time, I was at home with my friend and I left my phone upstairs, on the bathroom sink. I was actually getting ready to flat iron my hair, but I went downstairs with my friend to keep her company while the curlers was heating up. We were sitting on the couch watching Punk’d on MTV. All of a sudden, we...

Segregation by Law

...In the darkness of time, creatures of the wood hid in the mountains in fear. These creatures were elves, dwarves, magicians, and of course the wild animals of the woods. Men were taken away to be slaves to a demon. And the women were put in cages away from the world. But the creatures that hid had hidden from a demon of great power. This demon was from the ancient times of life, and was recently released from his prison in the earth. His original name was a mystery, but people call him Darkness. Centuries ago Darkness had tampered with God’s kingdom, destroying his creations as he went. Many had tried to fight against him, to save their families. But Darkness was too strong, his army was too strong. None that fought him ever survived. There was no hero among this world that could save them. Darkness continued to grow stronger with every waking day. Finally God grew tired of his games, but he could do nothing himself. He could not intervene in the world below. It was among his ideal rules that he could not intervene and of the angels that followed him. The angels however grew tired of watching these creatures suffer. They tried to persuade him to jump in and save them, but he would not. He had decided, however, to create a man. One who could not be defeated in battle, and who had the strength of one hundred men. He sent this man to earth and called him Daniel. Darkness had heard of this creature and how he had not feared him. Darkness laughed at the thought of this man.......

Bruchko Event Analysis

...In chapter 18, the Motilones begin to show interest Jesus because of Bobby’s song. After the tiger tells the chief that the spirits will visit them that night, the tribe members frantically go inside of the communal home and begin to sing incantations in order to ward of the evil spirits that they are sure are coming to kill one or more of their people. In all the commotion, Bruce worries that Bobby may have succumbed to his previous Motilone traditions of superstition, but when he enters the home, Bruce sees that Bobby is acting much differently than all the other Motilone men. Bobby is smiling with his eyes wide open and is singing a cheerful song about how Jesus had become his “language” – or life, so he had no reason to worry that he would be killed. Bruce joined Bobby in his song about Jesus and they sang until the night ended. And when dusk had broken, everyone in the home was alive. It was the first time that anyone could remember that the spirits had visited the home and not taken the life of at least one Motilone. To me, the most notable attribute of God within this event is faithfulness. God being faithful means that he does not break his covenants and he does not mistakenly foretell anything. Bobby made a covenant with God the day that he gave his life to Christ. He promised to walk in Jesus’ path in exchange for eternal safety in the presence of God. Because Bobby was singing a song of praise that night in the Motilone home, God was right there beside......

...Almost all human beings have believed the spiritual existence do exist and that somehow interact with people in their daily life. The common beliefs that there is another world where souls, spirits, demons and evil spirits dwelt the same way with the mortal people. Often they were described to be playful, silly but sometimes they cause illnesses and possess people. In the paper authored by Violet Villaroman-Bautista entitled Possession: Where Psychology, Culture and Theology Interface, she presented how psychologist should first understand how these beliefs developed within a culture and how they can affect the treatment of people with psychological disorders. The idea that spirits can enter and control a person is as old as the civilization and the biblical histories in which it’s present in diverse but almost all cultures. Since then, from ancient people to these day people often carried the beliefs that possession is something of a demon’s doing and not by mental abnormalities. This has always been a common explanation to people who are not aware of other possible account for such issues in possession. The ancient beliefs in spirits and souls leads to the belief of exorcism as a treatment for mental illness. Today many religions, churches, and folk healer accepts the reality of sprit possession and more importantly supported by the Roman Catholic Church. The author being a Christian as well as a psychologist find herself constrained to evaluate cases of possession.......

...Dr. Patrick A. Polk Humanities 491 30 September 2013 Demons are with us every day when we sleep, eat, work and even to some extent when we are at church. The traditions that demons have to do with are in Christianity. There are other religions where “bad spirits” are talked about but, demons derive from the devil which is associated with the Christian church. The main mode of communication that was and is so important to spreading the knowledge of demons was through the Bible and films. The Bible is the oldest dissemination of demons where it talks about Jesus calling out these spirits from inside of people. Films or movies have been the most popular form in recent times. Some characteristics of a demon include: Spirits with no physical body form, they are shape shifters, can communicate telepathically or by impressing thoughts, Require certain sacrifices and offerings for survival, able to occupy bodies and objects and control them, They are imitators and impersonators(especially of Christians, God, and prophecy), and are prone to corrupt, defy, and terrorize. This spirit is important because in a way this is proof for Christianity that there is a heaven and a hell. Demons are the children of the devil, who is the prince of darkness aka hell. If there is a hell, there is proof that there is an afterlife. All demons derived from the one of the biggest mistakes of all mankind. Adam and Eve were the first to experience, a demon in true flesh. They were both told by God to eat......
