I think I'm haunted...

no sir.


webcam caught nothing. I can and will say this though: when I came into my apartment last night I whiffed an unpleasant odour in my apartment. Like a mixture of bad eggs or rotting flowers. Which is strange because I don't possess any of those things. Probably nothing though. I just febreezed it and drank bourbon.

That sucks. I was looking forward to manifestations, possessions or plain devastation. A house imploding would be great too. :)

Please keep up a diary or hook your cam to the internet!

Bourbon does make you fart.

hooking up a cam to the internet would be a bad idea unless people want to watch me do interesting things to my body

Lat night

It started like this...


I was sleeping; from what I guess, soundly. You know when you have those lucid / vivid dreams that seem almost tangible? I had it. I never have dreams about intimacy or the like. But this dream was too real. I remember my eyes opening up. I can see my surroundings, but again, I cannot move. Any attempt of sound was impossible. I felt frozen, yet again.
In my dream, that long haired woman that I caught a glimpse of weeks prior was more prominent. She was over me. It began as sensual as any romance would. Coy play, sweet smells and gentle touches. Nothing crazy. I have never seen her before. This is a face that is foreign to me. She has no resemblance to any crushes or past lovers; it's as if i've met someone new. Refreshing, and devastatingly beautiful.
At first, it felt like the best wet dream ever. Silk touches, gentle caresses. It was ecstasy. That quickly faded. Her facade went from innocence to downright terror. Imagine the most beautiful eyes of your choice of colour quickly changing to dark yellow, almost cat like. It went from light playful fun to dark and dreadful in a flash.

Not only could I not move, but the most peculiar, physical motion came upon me. I felt as if there was a weight was holding me down on my bed. It was uncomfortable. Imagine being slowly stung by hot knives sliding into your torso. My instinct was telling me to scream but I was unable to do so. It was as if I was tied to my bed and I was helpless. No lies. Most of you may not understand or have experienced being awake and completely paralyzed, but this was real. It wasn't long. Mayhaps a few seconds. It quickly died down and I was able to regain motor control.

Have not been able to rest since.

All I can think of is those eyes.

I'm terrified, tribe. I'm scared to sleep, I'm scared to go into the bedroom. I dunno. That experience was too much. Waking dreams.. I understand. But now that they have elevated to this point....

As per that TV show "Supernatural", perhaps you should sprinkle a ring of salt around your bed (an unbroken circle, btw). Apparently, supernatural beings can't cross it because salt is a *pure* substance. Oh, and set up a cam in your room.

I've always wondered if that actually works.


But as per previous advice, don't bang yer succubus there!

This thread made me lose sleep last night. Freaky stuff. Hope it ends for you soon even if it's just run of the mill nightmares.

Everything was fine these past 3 weeks.

Nothing of notice. Very calm. Was able to finally sleep in my bedroom without being creeped out.

That all ended yesterday.

I was watching some television, smoking a cigarette and relaxing before work. Generally, on my desk nearby I usually have a bottle of whiskey or empty bottles of beer from my previous nights shenanigans.

My television sits on my desk - the bottles are right in front of me

I had an empty bottle of Bulleit burbon slide off the desk. Not thrown. It just slid down a good 30cm from the edge.

I almost shat myself.

Seriously something is not right here. I can not debunk what happened right in front of my eyes, use any sort of logic or empirical truths about this.

I tried saging, and I thought it worked. I think maybe I pissed it off instead.

Succubus

Succubus

Lilith (1892) by John Collier in Southport Atkinson Art Gallery
Grouping Legendary creature
Similar creatures Huldra, Siren, Harpy, Mermaid, Demon, Undine, Vampire
Region Middle East, The Americas, Europe, Asia

A 16th-century sculpture representing a succubus.
A succubus is a female demon or supernatural entity in folklore (traced back to medieval legend) that appears in dreams and takes the form of a woman in order to seduce men, usually through sexual activity. The male counterpart is the incubus. Religious traditions hold that repeated sexual activity with a succubus may result in the deterioration of health or even death.

In modern representations, a succubus may or may not appear in dreams and is often depicted as a highly attractive seductress or enchantress; whereas, in the past, succubi were generally depicted as frightening and demonic.

Etymology[edit]
Look up succubus in Wiktionary, the free dictionary.
The word is derived from Late Latin succuba "paramour"; from succub(āre) "to lie under" (sub- "under" + cubāre "to lie in bed"),[1] used to describe the supernatural being as well. The word is first attested from 1387.[2]

In folklore[edit]
According to Zohar and the Alphabet of Ben Sira, Lilith was Adam's first wife who later became a succubus.[3] She left Adam and refused to return to the Garden of Eden after she mated with archangel Samael.[4] In Zoharistic Kabbalah, there were four succubi who mated with the archangel Samael. There were four original queens of the demons: Lilith, Mahalath, Agrat Bat Mahlat, and Naamah.[5] A succubus may take a form of a beautiful young girl but closer inspection may reveal deformities upon their bodies, such as bird-like claws or serpentine tails.[6] Folklore also describes the act of sexually penetrating a succubus as akin to entering a cavern of ice, and there are reports of succubi forcing men to perform cunnilingus on their vulvas that drip with urine and other fluids.[7] In later folklore, a succubus took the form of a siren.

Throughout history, priests and rabbis, including Hanina Ben Dosa and Abaye, tried to curb the power of succubi over humans.[8] However, not all succubi were malevolent. According to Walter Mapes in De Nugis Curialium (Trifles of Courtiers), Pope Sylvester II (999–1003) - was involved with a succubus named Meridiana, who helped him achieve his high rank in the Catholic Church. Before his death, he confessed of his sins and died repentant.[9]

Ability to reproduce[edit]
According to the Kabbalah and the school of Rashba, the original three queens of the demons, Agrat Bat Mahlat, Naamah, Eisheth Zenunim, and all their cohorts give birth to children, except Lilith.[10] According to other legends, the children of Lilith are called Lilin.

According to the Malleus Maleficarum, or "Witches' Hammer", written by Heinrich Kramer (Institoris) in 1486, a succubus collects semen from the men she seduces. The incubi or male demons then use the semen to impregnate human females,[11] thus explaining how demons could apparently sire children despite the traditional belief that they were incapable of reproduction. Children so begotten – cambions – were supposed to be those that were born deformed, or more susceptible to supernatural influences.[12] The book does not address why a human female impregnated with the semen of a human male would not produce a regular human offspring, although after transferring the male semen to the Incubi it is believed the semen is altered to match the genetic material of the Succubus and the incubi before being transferred to a human female host. But in some Viking lore the child is born deformed because the conception was unnatural.[citation needed]

Qarinah[edit]
In Arabian mythology, the qarînah (قرينة) is a spirit similar to the succubus, with origins possibly in ancient Egyptian religion or in the animistic beliefs of pre-Islamic Arabia.[13] A qarînah "sleeps with the person and has relations during sleep as is known by the dreams."[14] They are said to be invisible, but a person with "second sight" can see them, often in the form of a cat, dog, or other household pet.[13] "In Omdurman it is a spirit which possesses. ... Only certain people are possessed and such people cannot marry or the qarina will harm them."[15] Till date, many African myths claim[citation needed] that men who have similar experience with such principality (succubus) in dreams (usually in form of a beautiful woman) find themselves exhausted as soon as they awaken; often claiming spiritual attack upon them. Local rituals/divination are often invoked in order to appeal the god for divine protection and intervention.

Mohini[edit]
In India, the succubus is referred to as the seductress "Mohini"; this is different from the mythological Mohini, who is depicted to be the slayer of Bhasmasur. In India, a succubus is described as a lone lady draped in a white sari (traditional Indian dress worn by women), with untied long hair. She generally is said to haunt lonely paths or roads, and to have died from torment by a male, and thus would seek revenge on any male.[original research?][citation needed]

Scientific explanations[edit]
In the field of medicine, there is some belief that the stories relating to encounters with succubi bear similar resemblance to the contemporary phenomenon of people reporting alien abductions,[16] which has been ascribed to the condition known as sleep paralysis. It is therefore suggested that historical accounts of people experiencing encounters with succubi may rather have been symptoms of sleep paralysis, with the hallucination of the said creatures coming from their contemporary culture.[17][18]

Succubi in fiction[edit]
Main article: Succubi in fiction
Throughout history, succubi have been popular characters in music, literature, film, television, and especially as video game and anime characters. In the manga/anime Rosario + Vampire the character Kurumu Kurono is a succubus. In the game Darkstalkers, Morrigan Aensland and Lilith Aensland are succubi. In the Digimon fiction, there is a character named Lilithmon based on a succubus, which represents the sin of lust.

A succubus also appears in Catherine (video game) where the protagonist experiences night terrors and is seduced by the woman of his dreams, despite having a real life girlfriend. In a season 5 episode 23 of Barney Miller, an irate man believes that he has been frequented by a succubus and an incubus, thus causing his crime.

In the Canadian television series Lost Girl, the main character Bo is a succubus. In The Dresden Files series by Jim Butcher, the Raith clan of White Court vampires are succubii and incubii who feed on sexual energy. In the novel Breaking Dawn by Stephenie Meyer, the three original sisters of the Denali coven (Tanya, Kate, and Irina) were revealed to be the originators of the myth of the succubus, as they would seduce men and drain them of blood following intercourse.

Richelle Mead (author of Vampire Academy) wrote a series about a succubus named Georgina Kincaid. She appears as a human working in a bookstore located in Seattle. Georgina seduces men for their life energy in order to stay alive. One of the characters in the webcomic Pibgorn, Drusilla, is a succubus. In the novel Once... by James Herbert, the main character Thom Kindred is visited by a succubus which leads to a great battle between the two with the help of a pixie elf to reclaim his lost property. In the video game World of Warcraft, the Warlock player class can summon a succubus as a demonic companion, while in the Overlord videogame, the succubus is a relatively common and strong enemy, especially if in group.

In the horror anthology film V/H/S, the segment "Amateur Night" features three friends who run afoul of a succubus-inspired creature.

In the video game series Castlevania, the succubus is a popular enemy, one of the most notable being the succubus in Castlevania: Symphony of the Night. There is also an array of cards inspired by the succubus in the card game Cardfight!! Vanguard. The computer role-play game NetHack also features Succubi and Incubi. A succubus also appears in The Secrets Witch Falls by Vitaly Grigorowski. In the Dungeons & Dragons role-playing game, a succubus character named Eriola captures the Eye of Vecna.

Lillith is depicted and referred to in several episodes of the TV series Supernatural. In the movie, Jennifer's Body, a non-virgin girl is mistakenly sacrificed to Satan, resulting in her seducing boys, then feeding on their bodies.

Sounds like a succubus. I don't know what to tell you. Best of luck. :)
It seems you've misunderstood the orignal statement.

Rumz was saying simply his place was haunted. Not he was haunted.

Um, Well I can relate to haunted houses. For sure.

The place I grew up in is from 1700's in limestone built by the incarerated from the pen.

Growing up, and until this day when I visit home. If i'm on the ground floor. You can hear people walking up stairs, and creaking on the wood floors above, walking. Doing shit. Confirmed by my Mom too. She's heard it too. [too many times]

I just got used to it over the years.

Our apartment we live in now. Someone was murdered in our apt before we took it over 8 years ago, and for the longest time doors would open and shut aribtrarily. Very spooky. I still wake up sometimes and see apparitions. Just very rare though.

It's freaky because we get hipsters moving into our apartment [building], and in the elevator they're like you're on the 10th floor? ya.

Don't you know what happened there??? "google search turned up the 10th floor murder" Oh yeah that's our apartment. K thx. And they're mind is blown.

I really believe in haunted houses. F'real.
