Hi Terry, I live in Australia, and this email is re your history of Occult involvement,
My Granddaughter has moved into my house, she is 19. The stepfather was not supportive I believe, which I assume led to her becoming involved in some ‘spiritual’ activity, She has a statue of Baphomet, and numerous books on dark things, such things as ‘casting spells.’
She is a lovely girl, but I am keen to know how to set her free. I have Holy water and prayers, Rosary, and Spiritual warfare prayers. I feel I am meant to show her love and support, any ideas on where I should go with this situation?
