One of the most common characteristics of demonic possession is the ability to speak in tongues.

Demons have even been known to cause addictions.
Often, people with demonic possessions cannot remember their past behaviors. These people may be constantly ill or have thoughts of suicide. They may also exhibit hallucinations.

The causes of demonic possession are not always readily apparent. In fact, they can vary from case to case, making it difficult to distinguish demonic influence from conditions that are associated with fallen humanity.

To begin, a person who is experiencing demonic possession will not remember anything about their behavior during possessed episodes.
Full blown demonic possession can result in the perpetration of heinous acts, including suicide or violent behavior. It can also cause the sufferer to develop foul smells, speak in tongues, and exhibit physical contortions. The person suffering from this condition may also experience sudden and unexpected weight loss and emaciation. In rare cases, the sufferer may react to holy water or objects.
Another common cause of demonic possession is the involvement of occult practices. Often, this involvement includes participating in satanic rituals, divination, or other New Age practices. Children who engage in these activities may also experience demonic possession. In addition, a person who has been possessed by an evil spirit may also be prone to addictions.
Besides these common characteristics, demonic possession can occur for many reasons. A person with demonic possession may be suffering from a physical illness, or the person is under a curse or is dealing with occult matters. Even though this condition can have any number of causes, it’s crucial for the exorcist to determine the reasons for the possession.
Demonic possession is an experience that involves the complete takeover of a person’s personality by a malevolent entity. The person who is possessed has no control over himself or herself, and his true destructive nature becomes manifested through lucid dreams and other symptoms.

Eventually, the person’s negative emotions will become so intense that spiritual help must be sought.

In fact, a possessed apple once caused so much trouble for the townspeople in Annecy, Savoy, France.
