Praying out loud for Protection against Demonic Forces while having a the 6th sense - Ostronomos - Aug 7, 2018

Since God exists in a higher dimension (90 degrees to our ordinary world), a 6th sense is necessary to communicate with Him/ it/ her. During this 6th sense, praying out loud may be the natural thing to do in order to gain protection against recognizable (in the 6th sense) threats of evil such as demonic forces. The sense that one is being preyed upon by invisible forces demands immediate and urgent prayer. And because reality is a self-aware God, at the highest level, signs of acknowledgement by reality via sunlight (in my familiar case) may be apparent. The prayer is effective at not merely reassurance, but genuine protection against these unseen forces of darkness. The spiritual aspect of one's body may be quite pronounced during this spiritual experience and one's distinct physical form may directly influence the sunlight in the room one is in psychically. Again, the sense that one is being watched or preyed upon may be quite prolific and the natural reaction is to counter that with a dominant assertive prayer to drive away the evil presence. The television may also communicate exactly what is relevant to what is occurring in the bedroom you are in by what Chris Langan calls... a state-recognition syntax. A psychical connection to a God has certain advantages that makes one privy to the inner workings of reality and disadvantages such as the burden of dealing with a new responsibility.

You'd think that the bad demons and the good demons would have settled this aeons ago. God has got to do better.

It's all.so, so, so infantile.... demons and such, loud chanting and BS. I just cannot.reduce the universe to.something akin to the boogeyman hiding under my bed.

That's nice. On another note, I received a worthwhile response on religious forums....

A four-dimensional being could easily observe a three-dimensional, thus a five- or more-dimensional being can easily observe us four-dimensional beings. Likewise the four-dimensional beings are capable of seeing shadows cast by the fifth dimension. So communication could be possible since each being can potentially observe the other, a sixth sense not being a necessity necessarily.


Of course! This would explain God's seeming absence for the most part. A puzzle that I could not wrap my brain around.

We are still cut off from God because it doesn't appear that prayer works unless we have a direct link to God. Our subjective minds remain invisible until such a link is established.

It is easy and takes no effort to label the act as infantile while observing from a distance and never being involved in the act itself. Try saying that when you're under those conditions.

Back in youth group days, I once unintentionally overheard a couple of devout sponsors shouting hosannahs to the Lord. But as much as I'd like to attribute the peculiar odors in the room afterwards to some funky combination of candle incense ingredients, I very much doubt that was the case.

It's funny you mention "Infantile". Most religions were used to keep children preoccupied and generate some very basic tuition (After all what originally was a Scholar). Unfortunately this lead to both a brain washing narrative maintained by such religious orders and the children themselves. (Many mythological folklores about the devil is literally down to those brainwashed children "scaring" each other with stories in the back of their churches while their "scholars" were busy with ceremonies etc. The proof of this as far as I attest is from some medieval churches having graffiti of demons created by the children that were otherwise bored of the sermons.)

Incidentally the Scholars of old were all about self iterative loops of tuition, where the pecking order of those that had not risen the scholarly ranks would be schooled by those above them. You can imagine what sort of warped manifestation would occur when older kids teach more impressionable younger kids their cherry picked best bits.

Do people pray in silence? What religions practice think-a-prayer? Love to have a local church pastor one Sunday request a prayer thought instead of 'repeat after me'. Probably doesn't do it because half the congregation would be thinking 'Lord, get me out of here'.

Praying in silence is an option that is taken because the speaker is not inspired to make the effort to pray out loud due to not genuinely believing that they are being heard and thus do not wish to be assertive in their prayer.

So the most conscious mind of all, the centre for cosmic consciousness, God, needs to rely on vocalized speech in this case. Seems the demons control the thought wave portion of the cosmic consciousness spectrum.  Why is that?

The Bible often encourages silent prayer.

But when you pray, go into your room and shut the door and pray to your Father who is in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will reward you. - Matthew 6:6
Even before a word is on my tongue, behold, O Lord, you know it altogether. - Psalm 139:4
Pray without ceasing - 1 Thessalonians 5:17


And many consider spoken prayer to be more for the benefit of others (trying to appear pious or leading a prayer in a unified effort) rather than god or oneself.
"Repeat after me" sounds like either a Catholic thing or leading someone who doesn't know how to pray, like a new convert.


Praying out loud to ward off demons is just superstition.
