Anyone who watches A Haunting knows how a demon can attach itself to an inanimate object (like desks, counter tops, modular cubes, drawing tables and file cabinets) and be transported with the object.
Anyone who watches When Ghosts Attack knows what a malevolent spirit can do.
That is why GA recommends objects which may contain malevolent energies- a demon or angry spirit- be cleansed immediately upon entering your home.
Preemptive cleansing may save you from exorcism later.
In fact, cleansing is economical; all you need is a bundle of white sage (known as a "smudge stick") to do it yourself. Whereas, exorcisms don't guarantee results, ritual cleansing with a smudge stick is known to expel malevolent spirits; it is an ancient practice believed to be rooted in Native American culture, though that could be wrong.
You know the old saying: spare the sage, spoil the demon.
One sign of demonic possession is you will make shit up out of whole cloth then publish it in a newspaper. You may also plot with other demons to plant stories in your newspaper or to embarrass your enemies or to swing local elections. You will also serve demonic entities who buy weekly ads on page 3. One should avoid demonic possession at all cost.
Therefore, before you carry home an inanimate object with a demon attached, obtain your own smudge stick.
Now, you are ready to cleanse.
