A friend of mine approached me about what to do regarding strange noises in his summer dorm room.
He was hesitant (and probably a bit skeptical, as a recent convert) to attribute this oddity to demons.
He was not able to have a priest bless the space. His room was in a house he didn’t own and he would only live there temporarily. I made several suggestions as to what he could do, which made everything cease immediately.
My friend specifically did actions 1-4. He quipped that I had sent him a “new convert spiritual warfare emergency kit.”
Below were my suggestions:
1) Blessed Crucifix
Make sure the space has a crucifix which is blessed. They are powerful. Demons are afraid of them.
2) Blessed Salt or Holy Water
Sprinkle blessed salt and/or holy water in the house. You can get holy water at church (some even have holy water dispensaries) and any priest can bless salt or water for you.
It’s even better if you can find a priest who will bless it in Latin. Sprinkle it everywhere. I do this often in my home and classroom.
I also sprinkle it on the third floor of my apartment building where there is a lot of weird stuff going on. (I am very discreet when doing this.)
3) Sacred Images
Put up a picture or pictures of the image of the Divine Mercy, the Virgin Mary, and the Sacred Heart of Jesus.
5) Play Gregorian Chant Music
6) Home Enthronement to the Sacred Heart of Jesus & Immaculate Heart of Mary
If this is your home or apartment, consecrate the place to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
You will need pictures of both. They do not have to be expensive. The consecration can also be done when the priest comes to bless your home, preferably in Latin.
The most important action you can take is to get your space blessed by a priest. But if and when you are not able to do so for whatever reason, the above actions help tremendously.
