Are all visions of spirits of demonic origin? Of course not. But it is important to realize that visions of spirits, even those that appear to be of heavenly origin, may in fact come from the demons. This is another reason why Stan is called "the great deceiver". We are at greatest risk of such demonic subterfuge when we seek out spiritual contacts or have an excessive interest in them. It is even possible for the demons to emulate prior heavenly spiritual visions.
This is a very complicated topic that I don't have time to research properly. I caution anyone who undertakes research on this subject matter to approach it objectively, not just looking for evidence that supports your emotional bias (whichever side of the subject it may fall on).
Fr. Chad Ripperger, who is a very active exorcist, has a number of talks that deal with spiritual warfare on his web site: www.sensustraditionis.org
(please note the penanceware requirements at the top of the page and the restriction against linking directly to the recordings on his site).
