Whether you believe in ghosts or not, we certainly behave with certain similar attributes. We appear out of thin air. It is similar to how you can never remember the beginning of a dream can you? You cannot remember quite how we appeared. We just did. We seemed to coalesce into your life with the ease of a ghost walking through a wall. We arrive and ghost into your life. In the same way as seeing a ghost, when you experience us, it is not an event that you will forget in a hurry. We sidle up to you, insert ourselves into our lives and make connection after connection with you as we feed from you. Like some wraith we attach outselves to you and steadily begin to suck the life force from you as we gorge on the fuel that you provide.

Often we will vanish just as we arrived, without any warning or announcement and try as you might you cannot find us again. It is as if we have disappeared off the face of the earth. Naturally we chose the moment of our vanishing act without any concern for its effect on you. We slip away like a mist evaporating. Once we were everywhere, woven around you and captivating you. Much in the same way as one might be transfixed by the appearance of some spirit. You are entranced by our appearance, there is something ethereal and mysterious about us that causes you to be drawn to us and then we are gone.

We are that elusive spirit that can now not be found. You might go to the same place where we first manifested but there is no sign of us. We have left no footprint, no trace of our existence when you try and seek us out, just like our spectral cousins and then suddenly we have returned. We ghost back into your life and continuing our haunting of you. We are incessant and ever present, drifting about you as we resume our extraction of fuel. We resume our draining of your spirit, leeching it from you as our cold, dead hands take hold of you once again.

People have many theories as to what ghosts are if they indeed exist. Some suggest that where there has been a sudden explosion of emotion, a heightened experience, then an imprint has been made on the fabric of existence. This imprint appears to those who are attuned to seeing it. That imprint is seen doing the same thing over and over again. It walks the same route, passes through the same wall and then vanishes only to appear the next night in the same place. The spirit follows the same routine like a piece of video film stuck in an endless loop. Just like such a ghost we engage in the same behaviours over and over again. The same actions all designed to haunt you as we extract our fuel. The same gestures, the same actions all of which must be replayed. Some believe that a ghost is the soul of someone who has suffered eternal damnation. He or she has been denied entry to heaven or hell and instead has been consigned to walk the earth for eternity, stuck in an unceasing routine. Our endless quest for fuel finds us in such a similar position. We must make our way through life, restless and never finding peace. We move from place to place, unable to rest and be satisfied. Instead we are driven onwards, plagued by the curse of our need for fuel. Thus we must haunt others, our appearance bringing dread and fear in the same way as terror follows the appearance of a spectre.

Unable to quite fit in we are ghost at the feast. Even when we have vanished there is a lingering coldness that strikes you to your core. You still sense us, able to feel the effect of our chilling appearance. You are wary and anxious as you know we will appear once again. Quite when is a mystery but as we first arrived and as we first disappeared we will ghost into your life and continue our haunting of you. Better consult that exorcist.

    The Impact of the ghosting is much much more effective than an arranged meeting!

    Thank you HG.

    Absolutely! Who would have thought that the Devil himself would deliver us from evil? We stumble around looking and praying for answers, only to find a heart-shaped flame with the word “Evil” smack in the middle. I think this blog is great and we are all here for a reason. All of us have been through Hell and back! Thank you, Indy.

    PS I pulled the words below from “I Want” posted on May 29th. HG, I hope you got what you wanted, because many of us here did.

    “I want you to pray for salvation from me. I want you to seek salvation at my hand.”

  4. K says:

    Incubi, succubi, ghosts and demons. You are everywhere. After my encounter with your kind, I truly believe that evil is real and I am haunted by my experience. My ex will surely appear again, just like some ghoul looking to slake his thirst in some unearthly dance macabre.

    I am not religious but I started to pray when I was in the fog. I was lost and couldn’t find the light, however, it was the darkness who reached out with the answers to my prayers. So, I walked into the dark and found him waiting there for me and, although he cannot save himself, he showed me the road to salvation. He gave me the light. He is there waiting for you; all you have to do is reach out and let him show you the way and he will deliver you from evil.

      When I reach out, I want Hallelujah by Leonard Cohen to be playing in the background.

        You make my heart sing! Thank you!

      That is so powerful! Love! Especially the part “although he cannot save himself, he showed me to the road of salvation.” Beautiful! It’s like those of us here, we stumbled thru the fog to come here to be shown by Mr Darkness how to find the light and seize our own power.

    3. Love says:

      Thank you K. Profound words.
      One thing I’ve heard repeatedly is narcs being referred to as incubi/succubi. I don’t think they deserve those titles. I relate more to a succubus. An entity that obtains energy/power through sex. From what Mr. Tudor has written, narcs utilize sex as a weapon. Sex itself does not give them power. It is not fuel. Sex however for an empathic individual can be very powerful. We learn what pleases our partner, we are in tune with their emotions and bodies, we are the key to their release.

      1. K says:

        Thank You, Love! I agree that sex for the empath is powerful, because there are so many emotions that are present: love, lust, excitement, tenderness, joy, trust, ecstasy and sometimes even a little sadness. We are very lucky that we are able to feel these emotions. The reason I used the terms Incubi and succubi was because my boyfriend would “sleep rape” me, so I actually called him Incubus for a while, and and we had a child. The Devil wouldn’t allow me to name our daughter but her name in latin means,”Light”. How ironic is that.

    HG, this is an ingenious text!
    And I ask you, as I already did a few weeks ago: HOW do those of your kind do this?
    The narc I was involved with seemed to be able to slip through walls, appeared behind me out of the blue, and seemed to manage to cross kilometres within seconds… if he wanted…
    How do you and your kind perfect those skills?
    Thank you very much!

      1. Ursula Rhys-Corell says:

        From childhood on?
        Having to hide from someone?
        Running away from someone or something?
        Things like that?

        1. HG Tudor says:

          In part yes, becoming invisible at times or moving without detection had its uses then. It has its uses in different ways now.

          1. Ursula Rhys-Corell says:

            Thank you so very much, HG!

      2. ava101 says:

        is this recognizing patterns of the victim and then going to places they usually go to? Do you not habits over a longer period of time? Is it following the victim or even waiting in the shadows? Using GPS, tracking apps on the smart phone? Is it having someone at a place the victims regularly visits calling you when she is there?

        Wouldn’t it be easier to just arrange a meeting?

        Well, my exnarc simply appeared in a group setting by just attaching himself to us like a parasite, uninvited.

        1. HG Tudor says:

          Arranging a meeting may be easier at times yes, but also the impact of this ghosting is very effective.

      3. ava101 says:

        Thank you very much, HG.
        And was this a yes, yes, yes, yes, and yes to the other questions?

        I read a very early definition of psychopathy yesterday: mania without delirium (moral insanity). Crazy behaviours while having a rational, clear mind. I like that.
