Seriously, I'm not Orthodox, but why do you care or concern yourself with these things? I doubt anyone here can truly give an definitive account of the workings of the Holy Spirit. If you are not part of that church, I don't see the reason for concern.
If it's of the Holy Spirit, OK.
If it ain't, OK.
As far as doing stuff because other people do it or whether they "feel it" or not, it seems to me that is called learning and within the Orthodox Church it is even commended. This goes back to the "personal conversion" issue. The Church is a corporate entity, literally, and going through the motions that others have for many centuries when you feel like it and more importantly when you don't seems to be the order of the day.
As far as battling and consorting with demons, right now I am pretty much wooing Acedia. It's a nooner.
