World’s Population Affected or Possessed by Ghosts

World’s Population Affected or Possessed by Ghosts

Please note we have used ‘negative energies’ as a collective noun to represent various types of subtle entities (of different spiritual strength) that have an intention to harm individuals and society.

1.  Percentage of the world population affected by ghosts

The world’s population in the year 2013 is estimated to be 7.1 billion (Ref:

world's population affected by ghosts

The population of ghosts (demons, devils, negative energies, etc.) in the current era is ten times more than humans. As the population of ghosts (demons, devils, negative energies, etc.) out-number the population of humankind to such a large extent, they adversely affect a large proportion of the world’s population in the current era. This percentage fluctuates over the years. While most of mankind is affected, some suffer to a greater extent than others as they are possessed by these demonic entities. Please refer to the article on the difference between being affected and possessed by a ghost (demon, devil, negative energy, etc.).

In the subsequent sections, we have presented our findings (through spiritual research) with regard to the extent that the world’s population has been affected or possessed by these demonic entities.

2.  Affected versus possessed by ghosts

In 2013,

  • 30% of the entire world’s population is possessed by ghosts (demons, devils, negative energies, etc.)
  • 50% are affected by them
  • 20% are not affected. Out of this:
    • 50% of the 20% are never affected
    • 50% of the 20% are affected for a few months

Note: These percentages are not static and change over time.

As you can see, there is a high percentage of the world’s population that is possessed or affected. This is one of the main reasons behind the current turmoil in the world. Demonic energies work through people and take advantage of their personality defects to create conflict and instability in the world at the level of the individual, family, society and nation.

Some may think, “I certainly don’t feel like I am possessed”, this is because the word ‘possessed’ may conjure up images of possession in movies such as ‘The Exorcist’ and ‘The Exorcism of Emily Rose’. In fact, in almost all cases the possessed person does not know that they are possessed, until it manifests in a dramatic way as it did in Emily Rose’s case. This is because in most cases the process of possession happens gradually over a period of many years. Also with progressive control over the person’s consciousness, the ghost eventually captures the mind and intellect of the possessed person so completely that the person’s thoughts and instincts are in fact of the possessing entity.

In general people think that possession means severe possession, however possession can be mild, moderate or severe – refer to the section below.

3.  Type of ghosts affecting world’s population

In relation to the 80% of the world’s population that is affected or possessed by negative energies:

  • 70% are due to inferior level ghosts (i.e. 56% of the overall population)
  • 30% are due to higher level ghosts such as subtle-sorcerers (i.e. 24% of the overall population)

4.  World’s population by level of possession

Please read the article on the levels of possession.

world's population by type of possession

Out of the 30% people that are possessed as shown in the diagram above:

  • 14% of the population are in category of ‘mild possession’. This category of possession can easily be understood by the intellect itself. This is due to obvious signs or display of behaviour at a physical, psychological, intellectual and spiritual level. In mild possession, the spiritual strength of the possessing entity and its control on the possessed person is minimal as compared to the other levels.
  • The 8% of people that fall in the category of ‘severe possession’ are the most dangerous to humankind as the possessing entity is of a higher spiritual strength, such as a subtle-sorcerer (māntrik), and is mainly interested in harming society at large. It therefore possesses people who have similar negative personalities and who have a tendency to harm others such as carrying out acts of terrorism on society.

5.  Spiritual level and the ability to diagnose people affected or possessed by negative energies

Quite often departed ancestors and negative energies influence or instigate situations on Earth. It is impossible for a person without an advanced sixth sense (and who is not familiar with affliction or possession by ghosts):

  1. To understand if a person is possessed or affected
  2. To diagnose the actual root cause of an event and
  3. Whether to attribute it to a physical, psychological or spiritual cause such as an attack by a negative energy.

When a higher level negative energy such as subtle-sorcerers instigates an incident or event, it becomes even harder to perceive its role behind the event. Higher level negative energies control lower level ghosts just as mafia bosses control the common criminal. It is easier to catch the common criminal but very difficult to connect the event to the mafia boss.

On the other hand, if a person has a higher spiritual level and sixth sense ability, he or she is able to perceive the real reasons behind why incidents and events unfold. As a rule of thumb, one can only identify an attack by a ghost of the same spiritual level. For example, if a person is at the 50% spiritual level and has an active sixth sense, he can only identify a ghost of the 50% spiritual level.

6.  Percentage of the world population affected by ghosts over the eras

The following bar chart shows the extent mankind has been affected/possessed by ghosts (demons, devils, negative energies, etc.) since the beginning of the Universe.

Possession - World's population affected by ghosts through the eras

Note: 100% in the current era of Strife (Kaliyug) refers to the point in time at the end of the era.

The reason for the increasing effect of ghosts (demons, devils, negative energies, etc.) on the world population is because the average spiritual level of humankind has decreased over time. As you can see, the mode spiritual level in the era of Truth (Satyayug) was 70%; giving people who live in that era, the requisite spiritual protection from ghosts (demons, devils, negative energies, etc.). On the other hand in the current era of Strife (Kaliyug), the mode spiritual level is 20% which means most of the population does not have the adequate spiritual strength to protect themselves from ghosts (demons, devils, negative energies etc.).

In this sub-era within the main Kaliyug era, the strength of negative energies has peaked in the year 2012–13.
