The devil’s trap is a mystical symbol used to immobilise and control demons.

It is similar to a circle of salt but more powerful and persistent as it is usually etched or painted in place, and can't simply be brushed or blown away. If a demon walks inside the outer circle of a devil's trap, it cannot physically leave it, and is trapped. Devil's traps also inhibit the use of some demonic powers. Devil's traps have been used not only to detain a demon, but are also drawn at entrances as a deterrent to prevent access to a building, room, or container. The devil’s traps seen in Supernatural all originate from The Lesser Key of Solomon, which is a grimoire, or magical text, written in the 17th century. It contains rituals and spells for invoking and controlling both demons and angels.

      there's distinct influences of daemons ona human. oppression, obsession,temptation, depression and finally possession. these are the signs of demonic inluence, and its no joke, as recognized by the Catholic church, there are 12 priests In United States that are qualified to exorcise demons, and only a few of them have witnessed possession, and even less have expelled a demon from a human, that lived. mostly by the time one is possessed they are drained of all power and will to live and physical strength is required after to recover. its a sad scary reality, there are things that go bump in the night
