 For as he thinks in his heart, so is he. —PROVERBS 23:7 You are the way you think.


The mind has always been a favorite target of the enemy. If the devil can control your mind, he can control your life. Spirits that attack the mind include, mind control, confusion, mental breakdown, mind-binding and mind-binding spirits, insanity, madness, mania, fantasy, evil thinking, migraines, mental pain, and negative thinking.


Mind control is a common spirit that has been identified by the name “Octopus.”


  1. Mind-control spirits can resemble an octopus or squid with tentacles that grasp and control the mind.
  2. Deliverance from mind control releases a person from mental pressure, mental pain, confusion, and mental torment.
  3. Mind-control spirits can enter through listening to ungodly music, reading occult books, pornography, false teaching, false religions, drugs, and passivity.
  4. In Jesus’s name, I loose my mind from all spirits of control, confusion, mental bondage, insanity, madness, fantasy, passivity, intellectualism, knowledge block, ignorance, mind-binding, lust, and evil thinking.




  1. These are slender, flexible appendages in some invertebrates, used for feeling or grasping. Tentacles are found in creatures such as the octopus and the squid.
  2. Mind-control spirits resemble these creatures in the spirit realm and also have tentacles for feeling and grasping. In spiritual warfare these tentacles need to be severed from the minds of those affected by mind control.
  3. This breaks mind

Mind control Spirits can control the mind and affect the way a person thinks. If evil spirits can control the thoughts, they can defeat the individual (Prov. 23:7).


  1. Mind control is a very important spirit in Satan’s arsenal. People can receive mind control spirits through music (rock, jazz, disco, and the like), meditation, reading certain books, drugs and alcohol (or anything that alters the mind and breaks down the hedges—Eccl. 10:8), passivity, control by another person, exposure of the mind to false teachings, psychology, pornography, and so on.
  2. Mind-control spirits can also be inherited. They have tentacles and resemble creatures such as the octopus and the squid. Migraine headaches are caused by mind-control spirits.
  3. Mind control works with insanity, mental illness, schizophrenia, intellectualism, and a host of others that operate in the mind. Mind control also gives a person the ability to control the mind of another.
  4. Many pastors and church leaders have very powerful mind-control spirits. False teachers and cults also use mind control to keep people bound to them.
  5. These spirits hate the anointing of the forehead with oil, and this is helpful in binding them. Also anointing the top, back, and sides (temples) of the head is sometimes necessary.
  6. When a person receives deliverance from the mind control, they are able to think clearly, some for the first time in their lives. In attacking mind control, come against the tentacles by asking the Lord to send angels to sever them. (See tentacles.)
