“Spooky Random Fact: #4”

“Spooky Random Fact: #4”

“Suicide Forest”, full of despair and darkness.

 

Sounds like such a frightening place doesn’t it? It’s located at the northwest base of Mount Fuji in Japan and is also known as Aokigahara. This fourteen square mile forest is so thick with trees and other natural formations that it makes it difficult to hear anything that doesn’t belong there.

If anyone wants to visit “Suicide Forest” (also known as the “Sea of Trees”), be forewarned for it harbors an egregious reputation. It’s reported to have an association with demons and more than fifty suicides took place among the woods in 2010.

Why the dark history? It’s believed that an old Japanese custom referred to as ubasute was practiced there until the 1800s and that the victims of this tragic era are to blame for the hauntings.

“Spooky Random Fact: #3”

“Spooky Random Fact: #3”

Mmmmm…. mysterious and oh so seductive……

Did you know that reports of incubi (plural for incubus) date way back to 2400 BC during Mesopotamia times. It was rumored that the hero, Gilgamesh’s father was Lilu, an incubus that supposedly aroused women in their sleep with his erogenous ways. The men from that era had their version as well, the succubus referred to as Lililu. Another tale comes from the Malleus Maleficarum in 1486 written by Heinrich Kramer. Kramer wrote that a succubus’s purpose was to seduce her victim and collect his semen. Then, the incubus would take the semen and use it to impregnate his female victim. With this theory, it gives explanation as to how demons sire children. These alleged children were called cambions who were often born cursed with birth defects and a sensitivity to the supernatural.

“The Three Lilies”

An enchanting exhibit of Mother Nature’s blooms!

Is a photograph that I recently took of some beautiful orange lilies that bloomed right outside our living room window. I was so mesmerized by the flowers’ vibrant color that I couldn’t resist the opportunity to grab my camera to permanently capture their image. And yet, even though they were already beyond being exquisite in their own lovely way, I gave them a little more glamour by enhancing them with digital effects.

I was so pleased with how it all turned out that I wanted to make “The Three Lilies” a wonderful piece of art that everyone can enjoy as well. “The Three Lilies” is available in various, exciting ways from prints that can be beautifully displayed upon the wall, to your very own throw pillow, duvet cover, tote bag, phone case, coffee mug and so much more!

“Spooky Random Fact: #2”

“Spooky Random Fact: #2”

The ominous number 666….. To many, this number automatically brings fear due to certain beliefs and popular society’s portrayal of negativity. However, according to the Angelic Realm (a realm that I work very closely with), this dreaded number actually has a very empowering meaning behind it.

The Angels (yes, those beautiful Light Beings from above) convey a very important message associated with the number 666. And no, it’s nothing demonic either, so lay that fear to rest.

When the number 666 comes to us, it’s a message for us to take a step back to re-evalute our current condition and learn to let go of the fear and material things that tend to take us off our spiritual journey. It’s a message that we need to bring our focus back to our hearts and learn to listen within so that we can reach a level of higher learning of love and compassion. You can say that it’s like a “warning” message that we are being too negative with our thoughts, therefore the path of our daily lives, and that we should regain control by reinforcing ourselves with the positive energy of love and light.

So, if you ever find yourself seeing this number, don’t fear it. Stop what you’re doing and take a moment of reflection and see how you can change your life for the better by incorporating the power of positive affirmation.

Always remember love and light, my friends!

“Spooky Random Fact: #1”

Here (as previously promised) is the first installment of many to come: “Spooky Random Facts here @ sheilareneeparker.com”.

“Spooky Random Fact: #1”

Doppelganger: German for “Ghostly Double” or “Double Walker”.

Did you know that Abraham Lincoln, the 16th President of the United States, reported seeing his very own doppelganger in a dream just days prior to his assassination in April,1865?! Catherine II, popularly known as “Catherine the Great”, and even the “Heart of Hearts” poet, Percy Bysshe Shelley also reported seeing their doppelgangers prior to their deaths.

Pretty trippy stuff if you ask me. Read more at Doppelgangers & Black Eyed Kids

“A New Look with a Few Spooks”

Hey all you ghosts and ghouls, beautiful people, lightworkers and such! Wow, that was quite the diverse greeting, wasn’t it?!

It has been nearly four fantabulous years (June to be a tad more precise 😉 ) since the creation of my site and I thought it was time for a change, one that’s been way overdue. As you can see, there’s a kickass new header image (designed by a very dear friend), shadowed by an adorable black, Gothic background adorned with skulls. And I’ve added a few more pages that were once written articles by me. I decided to upgrade the articles to having their own pages to help encourage people to openly discuss their very own personal paranormal experiences and more. So, I gladly welcome everyone’e interactions with an open mind and open arms.

My site here, sheilareneeparker.com, is non-judgemental and is free of all negativity. As I always say, “Positive Vibes Only”, baby!

Also, just for a little added creepiness, periodically I will be posting on here “Spooky Random Facts @ sheilareneeparker.com” to help sharpen the senses about things that “go bump in the night”. So, stay tuned and join in. Let’s have some spooky fun! I’ll try to keep things at a moderate level, not causing too much fright…. and I’ll even promise not to bite…. well, maybe just a little nibble. A girl’s gotta feed sometime, right?! 😉
