When a Nightmare Might be Something Else: A Predatory, Supernatural Creature in Your Bedroom

By: Nick Redfern ……

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. A highly-charged, sexual dream may be deliberately initiated by such things, which, over the centuries, have been referred to as Incubus, Succubus, Lilith, and the Old Hag. 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.

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. The stark and terrifying truth is that the Earth is one big farm. And, for these energy-based entities…we are ttheir food.

Beyond any shadow of doubt, one of the most ominous and sinister of all assumed supernatural entities is Lilith. A predatory, evil creature that has existed since time immemorial, she preys on humans and is associated with sex, reproduction, the stealing of newborn babies, and the birthing of half-human, half-demonic monstrosities. Lilith is a hideous thing whose origins can be traced back to ancient Mesopotamia and Sumerian lore – which, geographically-speaking, is rather notable. That “Lilith,” the word, translates into Hebrew as “night hag,” is a good indication of the nature and appearance of this vile creature, which is to be avoided at all costs. She also has an intensely close connection to none other than Adam and the Garden of Eden – and which, as will soon become apparent, quite possibly made her nothing less than a product of the Anunnaki, or even one of them. Before we get to the links concerning Adam and the Anunnaki, however, let’s see how the legends of Lilith, the ultimate Judaic demon, began.

Where do the stories of Lilith come from? From none other than the people of Mesopotamia, and particularly so the Sumerians, and also the Babylonians. Both cultures held strong beliefs in powerful, deadly, manipulative demons that wanted nothing more than to plague, torment, and destroy the Human race. Much of the early lore of the Mesopotamian culture held that female demons were particularly fear-inducing. They would steal into the bedrooms of men during the night, mount them, pin them down, and engage in wild intercourse. For the victim – which is an appropriate word to use – the experience was far more terrifying than it was exciting. One of the most knowledgeable figures when it came to the matter of Mesopotamian legends was Reginald C. Thompson, an English adventurer and explorer, whose 1903 book, Devils and Evil Spirits of Babylonia, describes a veritable menagerie of hostile, supernatural creatures that the Babylonians lived in deathly fear of. One of those creatures was a female entity of demonic proportions who, with hindsight, sounds very much like the entity that became known as Lilith, even though Thompson does not explicitly describe her as such.

Then there was Joseph McCabe, a Franciscan monk, who died in 1955. He, just like Reginald C. Thompson, spent years poring over ancient texts and doing his utmost to understand the nature of the creatures that so terrified those that lived in Mesopotamia, and particularly so the Sumerians – who play such an integral part in the story of the Rh negatives. McCabe had a particular interest in a pair of highly dangerous demons called Lilu and Lilitu. The clear similarity between their names and that of Lilith are undeniable, suggesting that all three had a connecting, original source – one which, unfortunately, is now lost to the fog of time. McCabe said: “Did a maid show the symptoms of anemia? Obviously Lilu or Lilitu had been busy at night with her body. Did a man or woman have an erotic dream leaving him or her excited and unsatisfied? But, it couldhave been one of these dangerous, parasitic creatures.

McCabe continued: “Even ‘the evil wind, the terrible wind that sets one’s hair on end’ had its demon. Pictorially they were represented as ferocious beings of animal head and human body: the prototypes of our devil’s disciples. Some were so powerful that they were next to gods.” So, now that we know the origins of Lilith, it’s time to take a look at how she became such an integral part of the story that this article tells. Connected to the story of Lilith, and to such an extent that they are clearly part of the same, overall phenomenon, in some fashion, are the many accounts of encounters with what are termed Incubus and Succubus. The former is a male demon, while the latter is female. Their sexual, predatory attacks on the unwary can be traced back to the legends of the people of Sumer and Babylonia – just as was the case with Lilith, she of the Anunnaki, and once the wife of the Anunnaki-created Adam. If you buy into that, of course.

 “Incubus” is a very apt title for the male category of these menacing entities, since its origins can be found in the Latin word “incubare,” which translates as “to lie upon.” Typically, attacks were – and still are, to this very day – made upon unsuspecting individuals during the early hours of the morning, and most often between 2:00 a.m. and 4:00 a.m. – arguably the time when a person is in the throes of deep sleep, and, therefore, open and vulnerable to a supernatural assault. Or to an alien intrusion.  It is very important that we take note of the intriguing words of Augustine of Hippo – far better known as St. Augustine, a philosopher who died in 430 AD, in what, today, is Algeria. He said of the Incubus/Succubus phenomenon:

“Many persons affirm that they have had the experience, or have heard from such as have experienced it, that the Satyrs and Fauns, whom the common folk call incubi, have often presented themselves before women, and have sought and procured intercourse with them. Hence it is folly to deny it. But God’s holy angels could not fall in such fashion before the deluge. Hence by the sons of God are to be understood the sons of Seth, who were good; while by the daughters of men the Scripture designates those who sprang from the race of Cain. Nor is it to be wondered at that giants should be born of them; for they were not all giants, albeit there were many more before than after the deluge.” That, in this particular context, St. Augustine should have made mention of “Satyrs and Fauns” – fabulous beasts of ancient legend – is notable. Why? Very simple: Zechariah Sitchin postulated that the legends of these, as well as other, legendary entities, like the Cyclops, the Centaur, and the Minotaur, were the products of freakish experimentation undertaken by the Anunnaki, all around the time they began to change the genetic make-up of Homo erectus.”

In 1486, a German, Dominican priest, Heinrich Kramer, penned a book titled Malleus Maleficarum, which was published in the following year. In English: The Hammer of Witches. It’s a book that Dr. Paul Chambers, author of Sex and the Paranormal, describes as “outstanding and frightening” (Chambers, 1999). Kramer was a notable figure in the fight against heresy, and someone who lectured widely on his studies of demonology. In the pages of his book, which is essential reading for anyone fascinated by matters relative to the Incubus, the Succubus, and evil, seductive beings, Kramer addresses an issue that keeps cropping up, time and again: the need to collect and make use of human sperm. He wrote: “At first it may truly seem that it is not in accordance with the Catholic Faith to maintain that children can be begotten by devils, that is to say, by Incubi and Succubi: for God Himself, before sin came into the world, instituted human procreation, since He created woman from the rib of man to be a helpmeet unto man.”

Kramer, however, felt that the Catholic faith was not seeing what he perceived as a much bigger picture. He added: “But it may be argued that devils take their part in this generation not as the essential cause, but as a secondary and artificial cause, since they busy themselves by interfering with the process of normal copulation and conception, by obtaining human semen, and themselves transferring it.” Finally, we have these words from Kramer: “Moreover, to beget a child is the act of a living body, but devils cannot bestow life upon the bodies which they assume; because life formally only proceeds from the soul, and the act of generation is the act of the physical organs which have bodily life. Therefore bodies which are assumed in this way cannot either beget or bear. Yet it may be said that these devils assume a body not in order that they may bestow life upon it, but that they may by the means of this body preserve human semen, and pass the semen on to another body.” Beware when you go to bed.
