“The Unforeseen”

Step by step, I stroll the streets
darkened by monochromatic shades of black.
Atop the buildings that stand tall and bleak
lurk nefarious creatures and their impending attacks.

Their eyes aglow with a sinister red as they wait with guarded stance
to claim their prey on the streets below at the first given chance.
The innocent who know not of what awaits their fate will soon succumb
before it gets too late.

The air is cold, damp and foul
and echoes bellow of the creatures’ howl.
I grip my coat, pulling it tight,
ready to put up what might be a fight.

Then, these creatures, they see me as I see them
and they suddenly realize, it’s their fate that’s grim.
For they are my prey… I hunger… I feed…
Protecting the innocent whenever they need.

“Demon”

“Demon”

It’s dark.                                                                                                                        Silent.                                                                                                                            Shadows are the only things around.

There’s no light, yet there’s something in the corner.                                          Mysterious. Devious.                                                                                                      You might even say demonic.

I’m afraid.                                                                                                                        I’m paralyzed.                                                                                                              Even though it doesn’t move, the red glow from its eyes hypnotize me.

Will there be conflict?                                                                                                         I pray not.                                                                                                                          It doesn’t speak.                                                                                                                 It just watches me.

I blink….                                                                                                                          ……it’s gone.

(“DEMON”. A poem by Sheila Renee Parker.)

“Spooky Random Fact: #6”

“Spooky Random Fact: #6”

Our subconscious reveals our deepest fears…. or does it?

When you sleep, do you have dreams of grandeur, or perhaps maybe even something of a darker origin? Has your deepest fear ever been revealed in a horrific nightmare?

Here’s something that might set your nerves on end. The word “nightmare” dates back from Old English times when the word “mare” referred to folkloric demons that terrorized people by sitting on their chests while the individuals slept, causing them to have haunting dreams. These so-called demons were often thought to be incubi and/or succubi. The prefix “night” was later added to articulate the dream condition.

So, just when your eyes are falling heavy and you’re about to drift off to sleep tonight, remember it’s only a dream…. or is it?

 

Sweet dreams, everyone…… ❤

“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.

“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?! 😉

Poltergeist: The “Noisy Ghost”

 

 

It’s been quite a while, but in the past I discussed two different types of hauntings known as intelligent and residual hauntings. An intelligent haunting is that of a spirit interaction with a conscious energy, whereas a residual haunting is energy that has been “recorded” from the past.

Ok, so what’s a poltergeist you ask? Well, the word “poltergeist” is German and loosely translates to meaning “noisy ghost”. I suppose you could say it’s similar to that of an intelligent haunting because it does interact with the living whereas a residual haunting is composed of “left-over” energy that’s a repetitive playback of itself. Poltergeist activity is quite often thought to be the work of malicious spirits wanting to wreak havoc upon the living. Many people have reported crazy things happening, like personal items being misplaced without plausible reason. Example: Wrist watches being left on a nightstand before falling deep into slumber only to awake to them being mysteriously relocated to another part of the house or lights flickering, television sets turning on by themselves, doors opening and closing, etc. etc. On a more frightening note, poltergeists have been known to be more physical in nature, inflicting pain like hair being pulled, poking or jabbing and even scratching people. The list of poltergeist activity can be very extensive and seem almost “made-up”, but accounts like these and many others date back centuries, coming from stories of old. They are not to be taken lightly and can be quite detrimental for anyone involved. People of all religions and spiritual paths have experienced such encounters.

A common belief claims that poltergeists are demons or “evil ghosts” that possibly are here to torment the living. An alternate belief claims that the origin of poltergeists actually derives from the individual experiencing it. For instance, a severely depressed person who harbors a lot of pinned up pain and frustration. Unfortunately, the saddened individual can often get so wrapped up in their own depression, that whatever negative energies they have can unconsciously project outward, out of the person’s psyche and body and manifest into something malevolent, thus taking on it’s own consciousness. And by this happening, this newly formed entity can form what is known as a spirit attachment to the living individual who is being haunted.

Parapsychologists believe that poltergeist activity can be explained by a phenomenon known as psychokinesis which is an alleged psychic ability that allows an individual to influence a physical system without physical interaction. However, there is no proven evidence that validates the existence of psychokinesis.
