3. Inauthentic Direct Apparitions

The nature of inauthentic direct apparitions is such that the apparitions are caused by a negative power coming either from an evil spirit itself or from a soul in hell. Alternatively, they can be brought on by a drug, intoxication or a pathological mental state conditioned by an evil spirit. The information and perceptions yielded are at least in some important points untrue and they pose a danger to people.

 



The information transferred by a person (visionary) can be divided into three parts:

• Messages meant for the general public. However, they contain at least one untrue important report that is harmful to people. Besides, in order to deceive and mystify people more effectively, such messages may be interspersed with some half-truths. Only this type of information can prove an apparition to be inauthentic.

• Messages and half-truths meant for the visionary to win him over and to make him believe the apparition. Ordinarily, such messages covertly stimulate his pride and self-conceit.

• Personal views of the visionary based on apparitions


The chief characteristic is that the visionary has optical, auditory, tactile or olfactory perceptions accompanied by an unpleasant mental perception, e.g. an unpleasant perception of a being or environment. In some cases, drugs may be pleasant for the short term. The series of apparitions does not have to be completed but may continue throughout one’s lifetime due to the influence of an evil spirit or drug addiction, or the pathological state of a person conditioned by an evil spirit.

The visionary experiences ecstasy and does not perceive the world around him, acting passively and unable to influence the course of the apparition. The moment of the beginning and the end of the apparition is not dependent on the visionary if no drugs are used. People who are present there can influence the course of the apparition, e.g. with the help of prayer, holy water etc.

Inauthentic direct apparitions can be either sensory or extra-sensory.

3.1 Sensory Apparitions

During sensory apparitions, the visionary has the impression that he really perceives the course of the event and has exciting, but in the depth of his soul, disquieting feeling unless drugs are involved.  

Examples: apparitions under the influence of an evil spirit (Christ tempted in the desert and the one apparition of an evil spirit to the visionary Mirjana), and hallucinations.

3.2 Extra-Sensory Apparitions

During extra-sensory apparitions, the visionary has an imaginary (apparent) perception similar to that which he has in dream while sleeping without fully realising that these perceptions are partly untrue.
