so recently I have been wondering if there is a way to get rid of an evil spirit that may be lingering around me. I live alone, so I don't have a priesthood holder to ask when things are urgent. An example is that I went to be the other night with my bedroom door closed. I awoke in the middle of the night to footsteps. My eyes were closed but I could see, and my body was completely paralyzed. A dark figure started walking from my door all the way to the other side of my bed and I could see the tall dark shadow standing on the other side of my bed looking at me. No eyes, just a tall dark figure. I was panicking and trying everything to move in my paralyzed state and I couldn't. Finally I remembered my mom telling me she used to have the same type of experiences and she was told to raise your right hand to the square and say "in the name of Jesus Christ, get thee hence". She said if you can't physically do it, to do it in your mind. When I did that after a couple of times I could move and the figure was gone but the door was open. Is this the correct way for a woman to do something like this, or how would I go about doing this in a time of immediate need? side note: I do not indulge in anything that would welcome any type of those spirits.
:confused:I've heard a number of Mormon myths about exorcism and possession, but does anyone know what either the official word from the top is on possession is, or at least what the general concensus is? How do church leaders deal with percieved possession? What is a Mormon exorcism like? Just curious - I know this isn't necessary for my salvation everyone... that's not what I'm asking.
