...

I have a thread buried underneath the wreckage of activity on this section somewhere, you'd do good to read it, but let me just say a few things here...

Are you, at this age and time in your life, ready to throw away everything you know and love for this? You can put those close to you in harm, you will be ridiculed by some very harshly, you will be tormented by unimaginable forces, and most importantly, you may be forced to cross lines that no one should be forced to. If you can say yes to that, you've taken a step, but it's one thing to say, another to do.

But, I find that saying stuff like that never really helps. Most people just go out hunting anyway, despite (or perhaps due to) what everyone says, so I say, you might as well do it right.

The thread I wrote is entitled "To Hunt a Demon", if you want, let me know, and I'll post a link to it. I also find that there are few things to clear up between the both of us.

What do you, personally, mean by a Christian Witch? More oft than naught, those two titles cannot be put together. And, what drives you, as a Christian Witch, to believe in demons? And more specifically, what do you think they are? You may be mistaken in your belief, and that may change your mind altogether.

Now for my turn; If you get yourself into this, especially when dealing with things up close, you probably will need to get physical. As in, running for your life physical. And, going out and jumping into something isn't the brightest idea in the world, you usually wind up dead.

And, since I can scarcely find myself taking this very seriously, I must say, your typing skills make my head ache and the little voice reading them sound like a spoiled blonde rich girl. :P

First, grow/cut your hair to about just past chin-length. Next, dye it silver. Next, get a red trenchcoat. Next, get a big-ass sword and two guns. POOF! You're Dante.



...okay, sorry, I couldn't resist. While hunting demons and monsters and **** would indeed be cool, I really feel you'd have to be like, super-strong. Like, super-duper strong. Like, Kid Goku-level strong. (Saying this, I'm actually crazy enough to ask God to make it so people can actually get that powerful.)

And if you don't mind me askin', Letter, could chi energy affect demons?

Well Cheza... I have 2 say that Smithkakarot is quite right in some things... My sister is a demon hunter... And have been 3 years since the last time I saw her... Cuz when you made that desition you have to go away from your loved ones so they don't get hurt... But  the thing is that you have to be extremely strong... Physical and spiritual to be able to figth with them... Question I ask you... do you have the gift of seeing the demons? or sence them?... Cuz if u can't do any of those things... you will have to take a lot of training... Cuz is not at easy as it sounds to figth with something you dont see.

well i would like to thank everyone for their opinons and sorry my typing offends but trust me i am neither blonde or rich as matter of fact i am the exact opposite of both as far as being a christian witch who saids it has to be opposite i am strong in my beliefs i believe in one god and jesus christ as the bible has described him i also practice certian wiccan rituals and am a reader also i would like for you to repost that information about demon hunting as far as demons i think that they are evil creatures who prey on the humans i think they are dangerous, ugly, and most of all fatal as far as being able to sense a demon i guess i would have to say no i can't do that but i am not naive enough to believe that you can accomplish something like that overnite i want to train for as long as it takes also at this point no i am not physically strong but spritually is another matter i am working on my body now i know that i probably have a long ways to go but i am not giving up leaving my love ones well i am an only child, my mother is dead, and my father is dying, i have no husband, boyfriend, children and only a hand full of friends i barely associate with the rest of my family as it is a phone call once or twice a year just to let them know i am alive would probably be enough i think i am at a  point in my life right now that the mundane isn't doing it working, going to school, struggling to pay bills being upset over little arguments frankly its all bulls**t excuse my language there is more to this life then that i truly believe that some of us are put here to protect others strangers that we don't even know getting rid of the evil that haunts this world that is what i belive i was put here for no path is ever easy but this is a path that is mine all i am doing is asking for some help on that path and if anyone can do that then i would be greatful

This is what I could get from what my sister left behind. Sorry if it is a little clumpsy it was kind of hard for me to translate.  This was some basic steps and rules the mentor of my sister gave her. If he wasn't dead I would love to give you his number, but he's not among us anymore. So I really hope it could at least help you to start.

First of all you should know that a Spiritual Warrior (Demon Hunter) is a person either has physical or spiritual wisdom and knowledge. These people have been trained for years, even centuries (incarnations).
The steps are simple:
1 .- You must learn a martial art (kung fu, Tai Chi, Judo, Karate, etc.).
2 .- You must learn to use the katana (Japanese sword) or any other sword, whether Japanese or not.
3 .- Have total balance on your emotions and thoughts.
4 .- You must learn to control your impulses and personality.
5 .- Be clear about what you used and what does not work.
6 .- To know who can you trust and who not (or who is your friend and who is known).
7 .- Always respect other beliefs and opinions.
8 .- Always calm and at peace (it is very important because that is what you transmit to others).
9 .- Have a altar for some Archangel and greet him every day (that is important as they are the protectors of the Spiritual Warrior)
10 .- Always have very high values to follow.
11 .- Be sure of yourself.
12 .- Be faithful and respectful.

Remenber always to be patient. Don't let anything get you out of concentration. Always believe that you are stronger that what your facing, because if you let them think you are afraid, they gonna use your weakness to take advantage of you.

You need to be physical strong, because every fight will comsume your energy. And you have to learn how to control your breathing, to keep your energy level stable.

You need to be spiritual strong, because you can't face demons, who are the masters of deception and half-truths. Who know how to eat the mind, and if you are not sure about your reasons for fighting, they can play with your mind until you let go or you end up dead.

So always be strong in both ways. Trains not only your body, but also your mind. And more important remenber why you are doing this task. and who gives you the strength and the power to confront the evil forces of the world. And always give thanks and appreciation that without their assistance you had not been able to overcome.

Well this is all I could get for now. But as soon as I get my hand in more information I will let it get to you. Sorry againg for my english. Here in Puerto Rico is not our first language. Really hope it will help you. :-D

this is the first good laugh i've had since saturday night, thank you.

and absolutely, the east has some intriguing understandings of spiritual energy.

as for the rest...

how would martial arts aside from the mental  training work against non physical foes?  the fit for energy does make sense though.

isn't the katana just another style of golden sword?

but generally there's some good advice in there, but why worship an archangel when simple prayer contacts it's Creator?

there are more basic and controllable methods for dealing with them, i suggest you understand the basics of interacting with them, unfortunately this is one pursuit where you have to intimately understand what your hunting to truly know what will work for you when dealing with them, they're not always anime beasts.

...each person has their own personal strength, find yours and where you draw if from and then you're ready to start this desire.

google demonology and seriously browse a lot of the back posts on this board while grounding your soul and your will...both suck to lose.

Thank you guys this information is very valueable.

As far as the martial arts training I do understand the need to have physical strength, but I am kind of curious to understand the physical part of the demon hunt. 

Will there actually be physical fighting?

 I practice a form of angel magic so I am very aware of the arc angels and the one I call on the most of course is Micheal.

 I will continue my research on demonology although so far what I have found is a bunch of fiction nothing based in reality.

 I will go back and read some of the old post on this cite and try to gather some more information but I do thank everyone for their advice.

 I hope my typing is better this time as it seems people sort of had a problem with it before.

 I would like to continue to gather information so if anyone has anything else or knows of anyone that I may speak with please let me know.

Also if anyone knows of any cites that may have this kind of information thats based in reality I would appreciate you letting me know.

deliriums realm, they're a bit more practical in their discussion with less glamorization concerning demonology, but have a lot of info on them.

Cool. Next time I see a demon, I'm gonna go "KAMEHAMEHA!" and blast its top half off.    *<:)

And if you do this you would probably be toast.  :laugh:

As for the general topic: I admit I don't know much about demons but I knew a friend who could see them and talk with them. She talked little on the subject but she said one thing to me, "Stay out of it. They're something you really don't want to get involved with." Forgive me if I say that I believe that you're taking this too lightly. Even if you aren't, you seem to be rushing things a lot. I think you should sit back and think about this a little more. And I must admit...your motives bother me slightly. A tiny thing you said sticks out in my mind as being a very big problem.Still, no matter what you do or choose, I wish you the best.

Lol, dude. Anywho, to answer your question, I don't know too much about "chi" energy. I assume it is similar to the other oriental concept know as Chakra, so I guess I'd have to say "in a way". The brain is a very powerful tool; focus and concentration can do a lot more in the spiritual realm that most would think.

As to Rainbow's post, I don't see why a katana is neccessary, other than to look absolutely pwnsome in combat. As for martial arts/ the physical aspect of hunting, there might come a time when the possesed will retalliate against the exorcist. I guess a bit of kung-fu couldn't hurt, (no pun intended), so long as you don't direly injure the person.

That's pretty much all I can think up at this hour, and if my writing seems a bit informal, please excuse me, but frankly this time of night is when I'd rather be dead asleep. So...if I missed something let me know

I think that chi has more to do with your inner energy, and chakras are like centers of it, but Im not sure... sorry....

Well... I have to say that I really don't know why my sister mentor told her about the katana. But hey it doesn't hurt anybody to learn how to used one, you might need it some day.

I think that chi has more to do with your inner energy

This is what I found about the Chi, hope it helps.
References to things analogous to the qi (Chi) taken to be the life-process or “flow” of energy that sustains living beings are found in many belief systems, especially in Asia. Philosophical conceptions of qi date from the earliest recorded times in Chinese thinking. One of the important early cultural heroes in Chinese mythology is Huang Di (the Yellow Emperor). He is identified in the legends of China as the one who first collected and formalized much of what subsequently became known as traditional Chinese medicine.

The earliest extant book that speaks of qi is the Analects of Confoolwitius (composed from the notes of individual students some time after his death in 479 B.C.) Unlike the legendary accounts mentioned above, the Analects has a clear date in history, and most later books (at least the ones that do not purport to be relics of the legendary earliest rulers) can also be assigned clear dates in history.

Manfred Porkert described relations to Western universal concepts:

Within the framework of Chinese thought no notion may attain to such a degree of abstraction from empirical data as to correspond perfectly to one of our modern universal concepts. Nevertheless the term qi comes as close as possible to constituting a generic designation equivalent to our word "energy". When Chinese thinkers are unwilling or unable to fix the quality of an energetic phenomenon, the character qi 氣 inevitably flows from their brushes.[2]

Although the concept of qi has been very important within many Chinese philosophies, over the centuries their descriptions of qi have been varied and may seem to be in conflict with each other. Understanding of these disputes is complicated for people who did not grow up using the Chinese concept and its associated concepts. Until China came into contact with Western scientific and philosophical ideas (primarily by way of Catholic missionaries), they knew about things like stones and lightning, but they would not have categorized them in terms of matter and energy. Qi and li (理, li, pattern) are their fundamental categories much as matter and energy have been fundamental categories for people in the West. Their use of qi (lifebreath) and li (pattern, regularity, form, order) as their primary categories leaves in question how to account for liquids and solids, and, once the Western idea of energy came on the scene, how to relate it to the native idea of "qi". If Chinese and Western concepts are mixed in an attempt to characterize some of the problems that arise with the Chinese conceptual system, then one might ask whether qi exists as a "force" separate from "matter", whether qi arises from "matter", or whether "matter" arises from qi.

 
Hand written calligraphic Qi.Fairly early on, some Chinese thinkers began to believe that there are different fractions of qi (in the sense that different fractions can be extracted from crude oil in a catalytic cracker), and that the coarsest and heaviest fractions of qi form solid things such as rocks, the earth, etc., whereas lighter fractions form liquids, and the most ethereal fractions are the "lifebreath" that animates living beings.[3]

Yuán qì is a notion of "innate" or "pre-natal" qi to distinguish it from acquired qi that a person may develop of their lifetime.
