The Horrific Realization of Being Digested by Paranormal Creatures

The world around us is not as it appears to be. In fact, far from it. As we go about our daily business, working, and living our lives, behind the scenes something dark and dangerous is taking place. And it has been going on since the dawn of civilization. Most people remain oblivious to the truth and don’t even realize it. Now and again, however, someone will stumble upon the startling reality that, potentially, affects and dictates the lives of just about all of us. What am I talking about? Nothing less than a monstrous collection of supernatural entities that terrify and torment us, and have done so for millennia. They do far more than that, however: they feed upon us. Like bloated, paranormal leeches, they suck us dry as they seek to fuel themselves with our psychic energy, high states of emotion, sexual energy, and the human life-force. They hate and despise us, but, paradoxically, they cannot live without us.

Extensive data exists which strongly suggests that the human soul, essence, or life-force is something that all of these entities – the vast majority of which exist in states of pure energy, but which can take on just about any form they choose – need to survive. Have you ever woken up, drained and utterly exhausted, from a terrifying nightmare that didn’t seem like just another, regular dream? If the answer is “Yes,” then you may have been “fed” upon by these infernal things.  When we sleep, we are at our most vulnerable. And that’s exactly how they want us. A dream is not always a dream, as strange as that might sound. Sometimes it’s an indication that, as you sleep, and as your guard is down, these voraciously hungry monsters are, in essence, eating you.

Among these creatures are the Shadow People: hostile things that typically manifest between 1:00 A.M. and 4:00 A.M. and who have the ability paralyze us and drain our bodies of energy in much the same way that the vampires of folklore would drain people of blood. In fact, and as the book shows, such distorted tales of vampirism almost certainly had their origins in the worlds, and actions, of these multi-dimensional things. Equally dangerous are what can accurately be termed supernatural seducers: dangerous entities that thrive on sexual energy - such as Orgone Energy, as theorized and documented by Wilhelm Reich - are also part of the equation. Also relevant to this angle is the reason why so many supernatural encounters occur at so-called “Lovers Lane” locations. In these cases, voyeurism and sexual emotion lead to feeding. From all across the world, there are countless tales of paranormal activity occurring in places where, “courting couples” hang out, late on dark, weekend nights. And many of those tales have at their heart such beasts as Mothman and Bigfoot – which suggests they too are paranormal parasites, and not the wholly flesh and blood animals that so many people assume them to be. 

In the latter part of 2002 and into the early months of 2003, the U.K. was inundated with reports of Bigfoot-type beasts. From the southernmost parts of England to practically the tip of Scotland, people claimed encounters with large, hair covered, man-beasts – many of a marauding and violent kind. One of those who was determined to get to the bottom of the mystery was Jonathan Downes. He is the director of the Woolsery, England-based Center for Fortean Zoology – which is one of the very few, full-time groups in the world dedicated to the study of strange creatures, such as the Chupacabra, the Loch Ness Monster, and the Abominable Snowman. Without doubt, the most intense wave of activity occurred in the north of England at a town called Bolam – or, more specifically at Bolam Lake, a large body of water that is itself a definitive hotspot for young lovers on Friday and Saturday nights.

It was on a freezing cold morning in January 2003 that Downes and his team of monster-hunters drove up to Bolam from Downes’ home in Devon – a mammoth convoy-style drive, to be sure. High-strangeness hit the team – and in sinister fashion – just about as soon as they arrived. To his consternation, Downes found that all of his electrical devices – his computer, his cell-phone, his audio equipment, and his cameras - were completely and utterly drained of power. All of them had to be charged before they could be used. This further bolsters the idea that energy-“eating” entities – in the form of Bigfoot - were wildly on the loose and had already got their claws into not just Jon Downes and his crew, but into his devices, too.  

Of the many and varied accounts given to Downes during his time at Bolam Lake, one of the most intriguing came from a man named Neil. In his 2004 autobiography, Monster Hunter, Downes says: “Possibly the most astounding story that [Neil] had to recount had taken place a couple of summers before our visit. He had been in the woods at the opposite side of the lake with his girlfriend. They had been making love when his girlfriend told him she that she could see what she thought was a man in a monkey suit watching their sexual adventures from behind a bush. Neil, unsurprisingly, looked around the area but could find nothing.” Very notably, Downes himself caught sight of the creature on one particular, dark night in the woods around Bolam. Incredibly, Downes says that the thing looked like a huge, black-colored ape – but that it appeared to be one-dimensional, just like a shadow. 

Poltergeists - violent entities that can cause chaos in the home and who delight in tormenting us as much as they are energized by us – are also part of the equation, as are thought-forms and Tulpas; creatures created within the human mind and the depths of our imaginations, but which can be externalized and given a strange form of life in the real world. Key to the survival of Tulpas and thought-forms is that we believe in them. The stronger our belief, the greater the ability of the Tulpas to live. In other words, they feed on - and coldly and carefully nurture - our belief-systems. Then, there is the Slenderman: a sinister figure which started out as an Internet experiment, but which has mutated drastically in the last few years, to the extent that numerous people report having seen the Slenderman in the real world. It’s a perfect example of a modern day Tulpa / thought-form running wild in our reality. Witnesses describe seeing the scrawny, black-suited figure looming over their beds in the dead of night, extracting energy and dining in a fashion that would even have chilled the likes of H.P. Lovecraft and Edgar Allan Poe.

The Men in Black fall into this category, too: those who have had UFO encounters and who have been visited by the pale-faced ghouls known as the MIB state that while being threatened and intimidated by the Men in Black they have felt cold, clammy, weak, and light-headed. As many of the unfortunate witnesses have stated, it’s as if the MIB are draining them in the same way that a flashlight drains a battery. And, using the same analogy, when the light finally goes out, we do, too. Now, it’s time to take an in-depth look at all of the above, and multiple other supernatural creatures, too, that see us as nourishment and nothing else. The list includes hungry ghosts, the extraterrestrial Greys of Ufology, terrifying reptilian creatures that are also a part of UFO lore, the monsters that inspired Bram Stoker to write his classic, gothic novel, Dracula, and supernatural cats that – according to ancient lore – steal our breath as we sleep.

If there is one thing that can be said with a high degree of certainty, it’s that the vast majority of the human race is woefully unaware of the incredible scale on which the feeding is taking place – and why. It’s exactly the same for the cows in the fields, who happily munch on their grass – that is, until the time comes when they are dispatched to the slaughterhouse. They, just like us, are largely unable to comprehend what fate just might have in store for them. The cows may well be completely oblivious to what’s going on – until the last moment. As for us, though, we know that something is afoot. Or, some of us do. The problem, though, is that we cannot see the full scope of things. We are somewhat aware that there is a curtain of secrecy, but it’s one that we are not fully able to penetrate and see what it hides. All we get are frustratingly brief glimpses of the other worlds and realms around us – which usually occurs when the entities themselves intrude upon our world, rather than the other way around. Or, we dismiss the entire issue of supernatural ingestion as complete nonsense; the stuff of legend, folklore, bad dreams, and not much more else. 

This denial, dismissal and ignorance of the agenda of the paranormal parasites has allowed these things to operate in our world in a way which gives them carte blanche to do whatever they want, when they want, and how they want. As it once was millennia ago, when the likes of Lilith and the Incubus instilled worldwide fear and fed on people, so it still is today, centuries later. There is another important thing to note: there are strong indications that, despite the undeniable differences between some of these parasitic things, they have deep similarities. This prompts the idea that many of them are semi-connected parts of a greater, mysterious whole. As we have seen, many of the attacks and assaults made on us – as a means to secure energy-based food – occur at night, when the targeted victim is asleep. The Shadow People, the Incubus, the Succubus, and the hungry ghost all typically attack in the early hours of the morning – which suggests a link between them all. This clearly cannot be down to coincidence and nothing else. What we are seeing is all of these things surfacing from their other-worldly lairs and feasting on us when we are our most vulnerable: when we are sleeping. 

 There are other similarities too: when people are confronted by these terrible things, they fall sick – sometimes incredibly quickly. The Black-Eyed Children, the Shadow People, the Djinn, the Men in Black, and the hungry ghost appear significantly different when it comes to the matter of their gruesome, physical appearances. Yet, that all of them can cause the spontaneous development of severe ill health strongly suggests another high degree of commonality. Maybe, they are one and the very same thing – manifesting in radically different forms for different eras, cultures and countries. It’s perhaps worth musing on the possibility that we have never seen the paranormal parasites in their true forms – only the guises they take on when they coldheartedly interact with us. Let’s now take a look at the angle of soul-stealing in relation to the UFO phenomenon and the dwarfish Greys.

Here we see evidence that even if we, the public, aren’t getting the full story, certain elements of the U.S. Government may know what’s going down. Or, probably more likely, they strongly suspect why we exist and what our fates could amount to. The references in highly classified files, to the human race as “containers” of souls, are as ominous as they are chillingly thought-provoking. The possibility that when we die our souls are somehow converted into the equivalent of a form of energy-based food is enough to give anyone nightmares. Huge, unending, hellish factories in which human souls are devoured? Good luck expecting the government to come clean on that one. Then, there are those extremely alternative parasites that we, ourselves, have created – as thought-forms or Tulpas. It’s one thing to be attacked by a monster from another plane of existence and drained of our life-forces. It’s quite another, though, to fall victim to a creature that we, ourselves, have created.

So, where does all of this leave us? Are we all destined to be the food of vile, non-human creatures of a kind that have always been with us and which may never go away? Is it our fate to become the nourishment of something else? We shouldn’t be so surprised or dismissive of such a bleak scenario. After all, isn’t that what most of us (vegetarians and vegans aside) do, every day, of every week, of every year – namely, eat something else? Yes, it is. When we have a craving for a juicy steak, when we eat our Thanksgiving turkey, or when we dine on a plate of fajitas, do we give much thought to the source of the meal? For the most part, no, we don’t. It is, perhaps, our arrogance and our egos that lead us to believe we are at the top of the food chain. In reality, though, we may amount to a minor, collective link in that very same chain.
