Each aspect of the spirit world exists in relationship to all others and there is no solid barrier between these domains or planes of existence. Patterns of energy permit an exchange between one plane and the other. A previously foreign presence moves into a space or state of being it normally cannot occupy. This is generally rather disturbing to the natives no matter what the intentions of the new comer might be, as it usually strains the web of spiritual energies in the environment.
Early exorcists would come to have a whole roster of different kinds of spirits categorized according to their behavior. It was sort of a guide for what was a proper course of action when faced with any specific kind of spiritual presence. There has always been ways of dealing with the spiritual criminal, but no single method was seen as universally effective. When dealing with the lost, the modern exorcism can work, because the wording and emotion behind it scare the spirit and the shock makes them realize their state, and they let go.
