Sample text

He was an angry, brain-damaged man and on disability. He did not pay rent and made it clear he never intended to do so. I was mistaking psychic empathy for true love. The fact that I felt sorry for him opened my aura to invasion. Expert psychic vampires also know how to use physical touch to leave an astral imprint in your aura. In retrospect, I see that this individual used an erotic incident to hook into my third chakra and invade my solar plexus. The tie between us was invisible but formidable.

Animal infestation is also a symptom of astral attack. In this case it was hordes of black cats. Every time I looked out a window, there would be four to five black cats sitting on the window ledge, looking at me. The manner in which these cats would appear was odd. For instance, some days, I could step out onto the porch and the yard would be empty. Then five minutes later I would step out and see one hundred black cats. This phenomenon did not manifest until after I had signed the lease. During the six months I lived there, I called animal control several Samantha Stevens * 36 times and the one time they did show up, there was not a cat in sight.

Mixed in with all this was the promise of projects, travel and a future with the Wolf. Then much to their dismay, several stories broke out in the Canadian media denouncing this cult leader as a fraud and bigamist who had left his wife and was now carrying on with a couple of young women. At this point, I began to question what kind of channeling this individual was doing and why it was necessary for him to invade our crown chakras. My queries were met with verbal criticism. Whether I liked it or not, I was slowly getting on the wrong side of these people, simply by being myself.
