Interview with an Exorcist
Alex Telman Interview
Interview with an Aussie Exorcist - Alex Telman
From his modest Soul Centre in Brisbane, gifted exorcist and spiritual healer Alex Telman busily attends to people’s other-worldly concerns; ranging from healing people’s worries, habits and negativity, to the more serious rituals of clearings and exorcisms. It is precisely his work in the field of exorcisms and clearings that make him stand out as the country’s only Jewish exorcist; a traditionally Christian role for centuries.
You claim to be an exorcist?
I don’t claim it- I am an exorcist. As far as being the only Jewish exorcist, that doesn’t concern me. Exorcisms aren’t about religion, but about clearing out certain types of forces and energies. In fact the more people that could develop the skill, the better, regardless of religion. There’s a real spiritual war going on out there, and we can use the help. What I do know though, is that I’m the only person performing the ritual in a particular way, largely due to my unique abilities.
We usually associate exorcism ritual and practice with
the Christian faith. Is that reflected in your clientele?
Oh no! (laughs) My clients are of every faith and religion. I assure you even the atheists have started arriving! My work has nothing to do with their personal religious beliefs; it’s about fighting powerful negative energies. These energies don’t discriminate. They attack everything and everyone, regardless of gender, faith, politics, race and culture! So I don’t discriminate between God’s children. I’ve never refused to help anyone.
It’s an unusual career choice.
Unusual perhaps, but it’s not a choice. My gifts are God-given. I didn’t choose them.
What is an exorcism?
It is a direct confrontation, a battle between God’s will as invoked through the healer, and the will of the negative demonic entities. We are confronting their will, their insistence on possessing a person or a space. An exorcism is a powerful and effective means of eliminating disruptive, negative and intrusive energies.
Are these demons real?
What is their intention for possessing?
Possession is the demon’s way of breaking down a person’s will and mind. Their intention is to bring chaos, negativity and disharmony to the people and places they occupy. It is the demonic realm’s way of belittling God’s greatest creation: humanity. It is their way of remaining and engaging in battle with God.
So ‘exorcisms’ can be performed on places
Call it an ‘exorcism’, a ‘clearing’, a ‘healing’- it doesn’t really matter. It all boils down to the same thing. My work is to get rid of problematic energies whether they occupy a home, a business, or a person.
What do you define as problematic energies?
Malevolent entities; lost souls; stagnant energy; negativity. All can cause problems for people’s homes and for those living in them. Most of my work involves helping lost souls inhabiting homes or commercial premises move on and stop creating problems for the current living inhabitants. There have been few cases were I’ve been called to get rid of an entity that has full possession or control of its host.
You mean demonic possession? Like in the movies?
Yes that’s exactly what I mean….but without the special effects. They [the demons] do put on a show though…very cunning. They’ll try to wear me down by shouting out through the person they’re possessing, very personal and private thoughts and experiences from my life, hoping that way that I’ll give up the exorcism prayers and weaken. But, I don’t stop until they’re gone!
So exorcisms are for demonic possession only?
You may use exorcism prayers even on a person that doesn’t show signs of full possession; on people who suffer persistent negative attitudes or behaviours. Sometimes these demonic entities partially invade a person and affect both their personality and lives in an indirect way.
I’ve had people walk in off the street, and I could see these entities surrounding them; a quick exorcism and the people report immediate relief and feel brand new. I know it, because I see these negative energies make a run for it after the prayers!
Sometimes people’s lifestyles open doors to these bad energies; for example drugs and other addictions, some New Age practices, negative self-talk and so on. So when you start vibrating at such a low ‘frequency’ you invite into your persona and space these negative entities for they also vibrate at such a low frequency. You don’t have to be frothing at the mouth like in the movies to be ‘under attack’.
Is there a demand for this type of work?
Yes, because possession is of varying degrees, and doesn’t need to be always what you’ve seen in the movies. Much of my exorcism or ‘clearing’ work is for businesses that are experiencing unexplainable sudden downturn in business, so I go there and give the place a powerful energetic clearing. The rest of my clearing work is for people who are experiencing unusual and uncomfortable things in their home or have suddenly developed negative attitudes or behaviours.
You magically make business go good again?
No magic. Just prayers, my God-given gifts, and ritual. I call forth the command of God and that His will be done. I know that before I even ask, it will be done. I work from a state of gratitude and clear intent. (smiles) I assure you, I’ve not had any complaints thus far.
When would you perform your work?
If in your current house or one you’ve moved into, you experience an unusually high frequency of arguments, illness, negativity, mood swings, discomfort, movements, unexplained noises - these are usually symptoms of the house being ‘occupied’ by questionable entities. In the case of a person being ‘under attack’ they usually experience sudden changes in their temperament, vagueness, mental confusion, break out into violent acts and so forth.
Has there ever been a case where you’ve walked into a client’s house, and you’ve discerned that the problem isn’t supernatural? What would you advise them to avoid paranoia settling in?
Certainly I’d advise them first to go through a process of elimination. However, it is very rare that I’m called into a place where there isn’t an other-worldly problem... usually people’s gut instincts and intuition are on target. I advise that people first try to solve matters themselves in a practical worldly way...but when that doesn’t work and things get a bit unsettling for them, to call me. When I visit the client’s home, I actually ‘see’ these entities if the problem is supernatural anyway.
Seeing is believing, but you are the only one doing the
You’re right to a point, that’s my special gift. Though people don’t see what I can, they faith in what I tell them I see. But there is proof; people can actually experience and feel a very different and transformed space when I’ve completed my work. So you see, there’s always tangible proof - otherwise people would not be calling me and referring others to me.
According to the Church only ordained priests authorised
as exorcists can perform this rite. Where does that place you?
First of all I’m not a Christian (smiles). But in the case of the early Christian Church any Christian with faith could perform an exorcism, though over the centuries that changed.
I perform a valid function in faith and call upon the Highest Authority when I perform my work. Having said that, I do not work in opposition to the Church, but rather complement the enormous amount of work that needs to be done in the fight against real evil. I have a great respect for all religions for they all serve our common purpose: of bringing awareness of God to humanity.
Is exorcism dangerous?
Exorcisms can be very dangerous and people have been known to be hurt- both exorcist and person or places being exorcised. During the course of an exorcism, even the practitioner can be attacked, even possessed, and hence more demonic entities will be invited into the space and the climate could get completely out of control.
So you are at risk when performing the rite?
I don’t think of danger during my work as this invites fear and diminishes my focus. I maintain an intense focus and connection to the power of God until the work is done. I have mentioned earlier in our conversation that an unskilled exorcist could get possessed; that is a danger.
How can you prevent yourself becoming possessed?
Fear and loss of focus must never enter the equation. I remain connected to God throughout the whole time, and as God knows no fear- neither do I.
What qualities then must an ‘expert’ exorcist have?
Some elementary skills that an exorcist needs are: a complete understanding of all things supernatural, commitment, determination and compassion with an ability to heal.
As I understand it, a thorough investigation of the ‘possessed’ is conducted first to eliminate the possibility of a medical condition before proceeding to the supernatural, and hence perform an exorcism.
That is correct. My first priority is the person’s safety and comfort during the exorcism.
How many people other than the victim need to be present?
In most cases I work alone. I prefer to work with people brought to my centre because there it is much easier for me to maintain a stable vibrant energy that supports me. I’ve even had people walk in off the streets on their own that needed some form of exorcism or healing.
My Guides are with me throughout the whole time and they play
an important role in keeping the area ‘sealed down’
from further demonic intrusions and help to maintain a very high
frequency of energy. This creates an uncomfortable atmosphere for
the demons. As a result they do not resists God’s light for
long and eventually lose their strength and agree to leave.
The advantage I have is that once I am contacted to perform the rite, I can actually see the demonic entities or disruptive energies in or around the person or place, and then engage in active confrontation. So unlike cases where people have performed a clearing or exorcism on a place or person only to discover a week later than things have returned to chaos, I do not leave until they are gone truly and completely. It certainly is an advantage having these abilities when doing this work, otherwise I’d be working ‘blindly’ and not really know if these energies have gone or have just hidden temporarily.
You mentioned lost spirits. How do you deal with them? Why are they lost?
This is a different type of healing to exorcism?
A lost soul is someone who has died and not crossed over to the realm of spirit. This occurs because they have not completed what they wished to achieve in the physical realm, or they are frightened to cross over, lost, or just confused. When a lost soul attaches itself to a person the afflicted persons’ thoughts, behaviour and thinking begin to change and the lost soul’s personality begins to intrude. By this way the lost soul begins to reinvent itself and project its presence through you. You feel like you are two people competing for the same ‘space’. Over a period of time you begin to act differently, feel tired, confused with low self esteem, and at times unable to function properly- the lost soul needs your energy to project itself. Eventually your behaviour will vary from aggressive to passive to helpless- often blaming external sources and people for your perceived suffering.
I deal with them by helping the soul connect with the loving healing energy of their own guides, angels and so forth. This energy helps to dissipate the fear they are experiencing. If this doesn’t work I might call upon someone known to them from the other side to convince them and help them cross over. I assist in this process and it is truly a very rare and very beautiful experience.
What qualifications do you have?
I have degrees in law, education, business, the arts and hypnotherapy. I am a Reiki Master and a Shaitsu Master. I am also founder of the Conscientology Movement - an organization dedicated to the study of Consciousness. In addition I have been a barrister, business owner, teacher and university lecturer. I have also written 5 books and many articles.
But who trained you in this kind of work, the clearings;
Training in exorcism? (laughs) I didn’t attend college or do a certificate course if that’s what you mean! My gifts were there from birth; the additional ‘training’ for my other work came from the other side, from God’s realms. We all have different teachers after all.
It seems that you are constantly going to war fighting some pretty unpleasant characters. I suspect they don’t like you very much. Have you been targeted for attacks? Ever thought of quitting?
I would never quit. I believe this is my calling; my souls’ higher purpose. The demonic realms have always tried to attack me, either directly or indirectly through the work of black occultists. In fact when a client contacts me these negative spirits feel me coming. Sometimes I get attacked before I actually meet the client. But my faith in God has always protected me.
What sort of clients have you had for your ‘clearing’
work or exorcisms?
Other than the obvious cases of possession, generally ordinary people that have been plagued by the consequences of negativity, black magic rituals or psychic attacks. You’d be surprised how much of this terrible stuff is going on out there right under our noses.
For both clearings and exorcisms my clients range from celebrities, professionals, small businesses that needed a positive boost in businesses, real-estate agents who have wanted to sell properties faster, to ordinary people who have had some sort of unsettling feeling in their homes or around them and whose lives seemed suddenly ‘blocked’ and couldn’t explain it in a conventional way.
What is your success rate?
Thank God, in 30 years of work in this area I have had no complaints...the only one’s complaining are those entities I chase away from people and places!
