Anatomy of vampire trickery
Thank you Tessa
May we all learn to forgive (not forget).
I liked you put “educated” in parenthesis, schooling is more appropriate. Education in Greek (Μόρφωσης) means ‘Continuous Forming’ and today’s “educated” are far from that, rigid with a fixed mind.
Sort of along the same line.
For the longest time I stood amazed at how the past three years had changed people...and certainly it did. More recently however something dawned on me that I believe is a far more accurate assessment of the times we are in.
The past three years did not nearly change people as much as it exposed them.
The tyrant...the schill...the terrified...the follower...were all there inside.
The brave...the resilient and the non-complier were there too, but it took the disaster of these past years to dispose of the veneer.
It has really been modern re-run of The Wizard of Oz, and a classic Emporers New Clothes.
Another beautiful post. I sometimes think of the world as divided between violators and guardians. The vampires are the violators and their motives are varied; many are simply vapid agents of others but by not being a guardian, actively, one by default gets sucked into being part of the violator “industry/cartel,” or whatever it should be called. You are a magnificent guardian; it’s a difficult thing but feels so right. And makes life worth living. Your work always gives me hope.
Tessa this might be reductionistic but there's a divide-and-conquer corollary to your vampire thesis. if the kids are united, they can never be divided (or so the song goes), so, they try to get us alone. and one way to do that is to alienate us from the people we respect even though we may not all agree 100% with each other. and if we don't agree 100% with someone (who does, right?), that person is our enemy/controlled op/WEF agent.
i'm seeing a ton of that on other substacks in the last couple days. just saying.
Beautiful. Thank you for sharing this and for your prayer.
I hope the vampires stay away. If they don't I wish peace for you, so strong it cannot be moved and a deep love that conquers it all 🙏
"On the positive side, the abusive relationship experience made me super ready for 2020, life works in mysterious ways."
This was very much my experience as well.
Thank you for all of your writings, and especially this one.
Tolstoy -- the War and Peace guy -- once made an interesting observation which is worth repeating:
"The whole history of pagan times is nothing but a recital of the incidents and means by which the more wicked gained possession of power over the less wicked and retained it by cruelties and deceptions, ruling over the good under the pretense of guarding the right and protecting the good from the wicked."
I loved reading this the minute I awoke this morning. It's great. Thank you!
There is a movie that maybe you have seen, called How to Get Ahead in Advertising....here it is on Archive.org. https://archive.org/details/how-to-get-ahead-in-advertising-1989 Its a reflection on things people do to succeed and how it can warp the soul. Getting ahead, indeed!
In my relationships i try to keep my attention on the space in between. Avoid mind melding and soul swapping. Possession of another is weird. Slavery is weird. Young sweethearts get into trouble when they melt so confidently into each other. It seems safer to focus on the empty space (filled with spirit) that is between us.
Wonderful article. Picture me on my feet applauding, and then bowing in a gesture of appreciation.
Keep Loving, sister Tessa.
May your innocenc return to you.
Christine Northrup MD has a great book on vampires and how they have been created out of the system to create conflict, melded into our norms in all of our institutions and used to bring about the biggest awakening in the history of humankind. I am well aware of the dynamics created by those we call energy vampires, or better yet let us name them the more common names: narcissists, sociopaths and psychopaths. They are manipulative and controlling and engage in relationships with those they can easily manipulate and control. It was a setup that began rolling out when television was first introduced to create relationships based on this dynamic, to create conflict between all people and the "LOOSH" vampires feed on! It is a fascinating study and a difficult pattern to rid oneself of. HD Tudor a very high functioning sociopath and narcissist explains it so well if you wish. You can find his videos on YouTube.
Thank you for this, Tessa, and most especially for the beautiful prayer.
Savagely beautiful, Tessa. Thank you for your courageous vulnerability and humility. Some of the fiercest warrior women—Meredith Miller also comes to mind—have emerged from abusive relationships. Not only did you learn life-saving lessons from your suffering, but you have both dedicated your lives to helping others awaken from their mental and emotional bonds. It is testament to the depth of your character that you transformed your adversity into a springboard for love.
Maybe I read this wrong, but theres only one way to be rid of vampires.
