If you have any of these items in your home, there is no need to panic. You can simply gather up all the cursed objects and throw them in a trash bag and dispose of them. After you throw these items out, I recommend anointing your home with oil and commanding all unclean spirits to leave in the name of Jesus. Finally, pray and ask the presence of God to fill your home and read Psalm 91 over your family.

Halloween Decorations

Every fall, stores around the United States roll out haunting displays of ghouls, skeletons, ouija boards and corpses. Halloween is rooted in paganism and the occult and to this day still glorifies witchcraft and death. When we participate in Halloween, we come into agreement with the darkness behind the holiday. Putting skeletons, corpses and graveyard decorations on your property welcomes the spirit of death into your home. Likewise, putting cauldrons, witch hats and black cats around your home invite the spirit of witchcraft. If you love home decor like I do, there is plenty of beautiful fall decor that has nothing to do with Halloween. Pumpkin pillows, autumn candles and maple garlands are seasonal, cozy and safe for the home.


Dreamcatchers are popular home decor items, but they have ancient pagan roots. According to the Lakota Native American legend, a tribe leader received a spiritual vision while high on a mountain. The tribe leader met Iktomi, a demon, who appeared in the form of a spider and spun a dreamcatcher for the Lakota tribe. The demon told the tribe leader that the dreamcatcher would catch the good spirits and allow the dark ones to slip away.

The origin of the dreamcatcher was from an unclean spirit teaching humans how to do witchcraft. Owning dreamcatchers often results in members of the household having nightmares and sleep paralysis. Psalm 91 tells us that God is our fortress and refuge and we should not fear the terrors of the night. He is our protector and the giver of prophetic dreams, not dreamcatchers.

Demonic Music and Movies

The first five letters of the word ‘Entertainment’ spell ‘Enter.’ When ungodly movies enter our eye gate, they contaminate the whole body. In Matthew 6:22-23, Jesus said, “The light of the body is the eye. Therefore, if your eye is clear, your whole body will be full of light. But if your eye is unclear, your whole body will be full of darkness. Therefore, if the light that is in you is darkness, how great is that darkness!”

Watching movies and TV shows containing sexual immorality, witchcraft, violence and horror all open the door to those spirits. Many anime movies and TV shows geared toward children revolve around demons, spirit guides and witchcraft. Likewise, listening to music that promotes sin, rebellion and evil should be deleted from all phones, playlists and music libraries. I have been involved in hundreds of deliverance sessions where spirits that entered through secular movies and music had to be cast out in Jesus’ name. Believe me, these are all forms of entertainment to stay away from.

Occult Books

Books containing spells, horoscopes, demons and fortune telling should be avoided at all costs. Just like movies, books revolving around the horror genre invite fear and darkness into your home. Even popular books like Harry Potter and Twilight bring the occult into the home. Throw out books from popular authors whose stories revolve around occult and horror, such as Edgar Allen Poe, Stephanie Meyer, J.K. Rowling and Stephen King. After you throw away these items, your house will feel much lighter.

Tarot Cards

Tarot card readers claim that they communicate with angels, good spirits and even God. However, the Bible explicitly warns us to stay away from fortune telling and divination, because they are wicked and detestable practices. Because the Word of God states that fortune telling is demonic, we know the spiritual power behind the cards cannot come from God. In reality, the predictions come from Satan and his demons. When you come into agreement with tarot card readings, you are believing and receiving demonic curses over your life. Since these cards are used to channel demons, they should have no place in your home. They are a demonic portal and snare to anyone who owns or uses them. If you have ever participated in a tarot card reading or psychic reading of any kind, please repent and get delivered.
