I Am A Real Vampire

Updated on June 19, 2013

...And This Is My Story

Vampires have pervaded human myth and mystery. But is the true power of the vampire that the vampire is no myth at all?

Only after the third interview request I received this week, my partner said to me, "Don't you think it's time to just get out there? To tell your story? To let people know you a little better?"

What he meant is that I'm one voice in a huge choir called the real vampire community, but it's a voice without restraint or fear of convention.

I am out of the coffin, an open vampire and leader within the real vampire community. I suspect you would find me something of a surprise, as I am a vampire of a different fang as it were. I am no creature of the shadows nor do I readily buy into anything. Attend me.

Ask Sappho Your Questions!


I have been involved with the real vampire community since 1985. I am looking to continue working for the community, especially by bringing in my professional assets in the media and in publishing. Additionally, I am open to mentoring individuals who feel the pull of the vampire, but aren't entirely certain what they are. This is the story of how I have arrived at this point without getting into dull Dickensian description or some morass of pointless self-promotion.

Let me begin by saying I was raised in a philosophically open family. My family encouraged me to use my mind and my imagination, to explore and discover. There was no such thing as taboo. Now I can look back and see where the roots of my vampirism are in my own upbringing. I was raised to be open and aware, and so I have continued to be.

My "awakening", as it were, happened on August 6, 1985--the fortieth anniversary of the dropping of the atom bomb on Hiroshima. Actually, that was the day when months of self-examination and reflection crystallized for me.

I was not yet 14 years old. I hadn't known the words "empathic" or "psionic" and consequently could not have used them to describe what I had been experiencing. I knew I was living with a different and heightened set of senses, and that the whole of me hungered and yearned for something I couldn't identify.

I had come into the sphere of the Order of Maidenfear, a vampire sanctuary, months before through initiated friends that seemed to really understand what I was experiencing. On that day, the puzzle pieces of my thoughts clicked into place. I too was a vampire. I decided that I would never deny that aspect of me--in fact, I could never deny it. I would embrace vampirism and my existence as a vampire.

For the following four years I spent a great deal of time at House Maidenfear, learning and developing my own abilities. My own initiation was in 1989, once I turned 18. However, I had to take the Maidenfear Way and my own life as a vampire on an adventure. I moved away to college, where I studied history and linguistics and became an expert vampire researcher. I was able to enhance that skill in graduate school in Florida. Wherever I went, I made connections with the local vampire communities. I came home to House Maidenfear in 2001 and I was elected to my current station in 2003.

I came to call myself Sappho after a thorough reading of her poetry. Her words have such an ability to wrench deep emotional energy that I came to regard her as something of a vampire herself.

I'm known affectionately as the "Vampire Philosophe" for the amount of time I've spent in the more cerebral aspects of the vampire existence.

Here are a few of my thoughts.

There exists an entity of living energy all around us and in the universe. I mean that this energy is both alive itself and imbues all things with life of one degree or another. A vampire is an adept at energy play, an adept at tapping into this living energy for self-benefit. For some this is achieved through drinking blood, for others it is a matter of psychic living energy. A vampire knows how to take what energy they want and need and use it for their own purposes.

I believe we as vampires are at an exciting time in our history. At no other point in the history of the world have circumstances been so ripe for us to fully express ourselves and be true to what we are. My commitment to the vampire community is to help us achieve our greatest potential.

In the 1960s, there was a woman here in Philadelphia who was taking a second, third, and fourth look at the idea of the vampire. We all knew her as Anne de Molay, although whether she was an actual descendant of Jacques de Molay, the last Grand Master of the Knights Templar, remains something of a mystery (for one thing I don't think old Jacques had any descendants, but whatever). Her theory was that it wasn't the blood that vampires needed, but rather what was IN the blood--living energy, which she called prana.

In an era of horror film schlock, Anne investigated the archetype of the vampire and came to the conclusion that vampirism was a very real interaction with life energy that could benefit the practitioner. Having shared her vision, Anne was able to form a group of like minds and established the Order of Maidenfear in 1966.

Why "Maidenfear"?

Why use a word with no obvious associations with vampirism to communicate the Order's existence to the world? Anne wrote, "I came upon this term, and for some reason it struck me deep, it resonated within me. What a perfect concept, the nervous excitement of fear and desire captured in a single word. For me, this word was so replete with energy itself that I could see nothing else but to apply it in my own form of vampirism."

In 1970, Anne inherited a generous amount of money after the passing of her father. She was about to turn 40, she was a history teacher, she had decided against having a family, and her one absorbing passion was the Order of Maidenfear. Anne invested in the future of her Order by buying a large Victorian house in Philadelphia, the building that became House Maidenfear. Dedicated to Anne's vision of the vampiric life, vampires from the city and the Eastern seaboard came to live in House Maidenfear.

In council on the Summer Solstice of 1970, the Maidenfear vampires wrote and approved the Maidenfear Entente, a document which would be the constitution of Order operations. For the next twenty years, House Maidenfear and the Order operated in relative obscurity. After all, this was not a philosophy that everyone was ready to hear. Like minds found and joined the order.

Anne de Molay was the first Grand Master and remained in that position until 1987. Myself I've been "Grand Master" since 2003, except that I changed the title to "Matriarch". I come bumbling in around 1985, guided by Maidenfear vampires who helped me understand what was going on within myself (and in reality I came to the conclusion myself and they were there to support me).

I was lucky to have Anne as a guide and a friend until her passing in 2003. But my point is that there was no Internet at the time. We kept in contact with each other the old fashioned way--snail mail or telephone. There weren't any publishers willing to snatch up anything about a real vampire community. If we wanted to come together, we had to work at it. And forget mentioning vampirism to anyone outside of the group!

Was it harder to be a vampire in my starting days than it is now? I think it might have been. We had to have strength and determination to see it through. But if we triumphed--when we triumphed--the experience made all the hassle worth the effort.

And so I don't know if this makes me any more or less real than any other vampire, but this is my heritage and my legacy. This is a true story, but I bid you to keep in mind that this experience has been my own truth. Your truth is probably very different. If not, you know the possibilities out there for you are endless. Dare to know.

Creed of the Kindred

I am vampire.

I kneel before no other creature.

I am an intelligent animal who has retained my animal intelligence.

This flesh of mine is a gift in which I celebrate passion and ecstasy, but my lot in the convoluted universal matrix is to exist as a creature of energy.

I thrive on the energy of the cosmos around me. That energy exists in many forms. It exists in lifeblood, in psychic forces, in the angry hurling of lightning bolts from cloud to cloud.  This diversity manifests on the earth in the many different and legitimate breeds of vampire which share the world with mortal humans.

Knowing my lineage, I seek to mate my personal energy with that of magic and nature as a vital part of my existence. Pounding surf, rustling crisp leaves, magical ritual-all of these empowers me, and I take what is offered or what I have made for myself.

As a vampire, I am a natural being part of the natural universe. I am not confined to this plane or this dimension. I am a cosmic being of fluctuating energy. The matter that makes my flesh and flows through my body drifted down from the stars over millennia. My sight and my vision are necessarily wider and broader.

Life, death, what are these to me? They dance as close as hungry lovers.  This is no two-sided mortal coin but one great continuum. 

The impetus of eternity, then, is the power of the vampire. It is my power, and I claim that power for myself.

      Sarah Turcious if you have questions you can reach me by my email at First_Isa@hotmail.com like Daniel I will be honest with you and I'll start by stating that their is no way to make someone that was not born a psychic or sanguine vampire into a vampire. However it's possible for anyone to learn how to do many of the things we do.

      My knowledge though is the result of two decades of personal experience and study and if you ask me something I don't know the answer to I can and will point you in the direction of someone that is capable of giving you the answers you want.

      Umang as most anyone in the vampire community that doesn't have their head lodged firmly up their posterior will tell you and as I've stated repeatedly here vampirisim is something your either born with or not. If you want to learn more about psychic vampires I suggest tracking down a copy of "The Ethical Psychic Vampire" by Raven Kaldera, as well as a copy of Michelle Belanger's "Psychic Vampire Codex". You can find an early draft version of the vampire codex on www.sacred-texts.com if you don't have the money to spare. Even if you yourself are not a vampire some of the information in the Codex can be helpful in learning to manipulate energy in the same way that Psychic vampires naturally do.

      Oh god, life... I could have been hasty and wrong, admitted, but sometimes when you're 90% sure of something, and all of the credible evidence points towards your conclusion, you're right. if it hobbles and quacks like a duck, it's probably at least a goose. Life. My desperate attempt to remain useful and pertinent in the slightest in this world have become so sad that they're officially offensive. Great. I don't really know why I still post on this website anymore. I lost my powers over a year ago, so the only thing I have to offer are my experiences, ideas I understand, and theories I may have had. And that's really not much. Especially sense I chased someone away for the sake of my online presence. Stupid. Most people just want to know which spell to use to turn them into a vampire, or whether or not some Dracula 2000 character is going to come into their life and make them a fledgling. People want to be bitten, dragged off into the night, and turned into some god , and let loose upon the world. It's ridiculous.

      I'm not some Dracula 2000 character. I'm just some fat kid who used to be able to use some vamp-magic over a year ago that he inherited, who started a group and had an apprentice a long long time ago, and who has since been drained of all of those things for a while. It's inexplicably frustrating for magic to have been my life, my future, my identity, and now to not feel a single drop of it in my veins, and to know that I never will again... I have nothing to offer anymore... You (whoever the potential reader may be) know, my dream or goal used to be that I would start a vampire school dedicated to the education of vampires and humans alike if they wished on vampiric history, culture and etiquette, physical vampiric abilities and potential as well as magical, how vampires affect society today, and how mainstream society behaves towards vampirism, etc. etc.

      Of course I never thought that I knew about half of those things, or that I'd be the single teacher or anything, but I wanted to learn. And I wanted to get together with people who had the same passion and ideas, who could cover the subjects I couldn't (or couldn't do as well on) so that collectively we could form a school and offer all of that to students and more. But it's gone. I had been in denial for a while, trying to force my way (as if that was going to work) back into having the powers I lost one by one, until one day I just woke up and realized/accepted that they're all gone... I have no idea why. Personally, I have always believed that if you're going to punish or torture someone, then they need to know why. There's no point otherwise as it's completely unproductive in any other way than to get your rage out. But then you have a problem. You've done something to get your rage out, but not to solve the initial problem. No lesson learned. If god was punishing me for something, or if I had pissed the wrong person/group of people off, and that's what caused me to loose my magic, then they should have said something. Because even though one of the goals would have been achieved (my pain), still, no lesson learned. Idk... I guess I'm rambling at this point. But there it is. The range of my usefulness can be measured by a teaspoon, and some day all of my knowledge and experience is just going to disappear... go to waste. At some point in my life I'm going to just start forgetting things, and because I'm incapable of properly training anyone, and completely incapable of teaching anyone who doesn't already know how to use vamp-magic and manipulate energy, when it goes it's gone forever. No point. No point to the past... 3 years of my life. 3 YEARS of my life! dedicated to a practice, an art, a science, that just... went away. And I have no idea why. My old apprentice has stopped practicing because he doesn't want to endanger his girlfriend; that's entirely reasonable, but 3 years... And now I'm just supposed to start up college and 'figure out what I want to do with my life'? What a joke. At this point in the system for most people it seems like we go to college not to figure out what we want to do with our lives, but how to fit into the system. College, debt. Car, debt. House, debt. Job... all for modern day slavery.

      Did you know that when slavery was technically legal, someone could take on a slave in order to pay a debt. However once the person started working for the slaver, the slaver would continue to bill the person for things like tools and food and a place to sleep for as long as the person worked there so that even though the person was paying off a debt, he was constantly racking up more of a debt than he could ever pay off through slavery. figure out what I want to do with my life... I knew what I wanted to do with my life. I knew my talent, my skill, that I could forge and get better at and refine until I made it into a future. But that's gone, and I could never explain that. There are no do-overs or take-backs in life. So here's to the system! To which I am now just a nuisance. Bottoms up! I fucking hate ants.

      Rajeshe getting a hold of the AIVO members has been difficult since they closed their facebook page after serious issues with harassment, but yes I'm familiar with the meaning of the phrases and that they are not particularly kind. I try to avoid phrases I'm not familiar with and I checked the initial persons translations against others, although at this time I'm having trouble remember why a bunch of us started exchanging insults and swears in different languages.

      What a response to elena's post. Amazing. But do you even know the meanings of 'bhaand mein jaaon' and 'gaand chaat mera'. If you dont know then no problem. I will praise you in Hindi: Chutiya suyar sala kutte ko chod ja k. Ask the meaning to AIVO members. Have a nice day:)

      Bailey you can get a hold of me through my email. although I'm not sure how your defining "real" vampire. as putting it in quotations makes it seem like your trying to make a joke about it.

      Daniel and Elena;

      Elena first off Daniel makes excellent points your first post that I responded to had perfect English, in the modern age even if your unsure the least you could have done was plugged your original response into something like Google translate. Daniel thank you for the astute break down as while I try to extend the benefit of the doubt after the last post I'd pretty much given up. I'm far from literate in Hindi, however Elena if you want to continue using such poor English that even a first semester student would be ashamed allow me to respond with two phrases I was given by one of the AIVO members for a response to such things: "bhaand me jaao" and "Gaand chaat mera"

      I never said Indians have lower intelligence, or are incapable of learning the English language. I did say that grammar issues happen when you learn a new language. No one expects someone who is using English as a second language to do so perfectly. What you do is type out words without any vowels. I've corresponded with people who's native tongues were not English, and none of them did that. Americans sometimes do that when they're being incredibly lazy when they type, and it's just sad. If you truly are learning English, then you're learning how to write it as well as pronounce it, and if so, it would be entirely reasonable to for you to have spelling and grammar issues until you knew the language like second nature. That being said, your spelling intentionally skips most (but not all) vowels and even some consonants to get the sound of the words across while typing the bare minimum of letters. This means that you know exactly how the words sound, part by part, and why they sound that way.

      Also, I don't know Hindi, but from my study of French I know that even though they use the same letters as English does, they have different sounds for how those letters come together (even when they come together in the exact same way). This is how someone can carry an accent from one language to another. So unless you were fluent in English, you wouldn't know which letters to skip, and which ones to keep to make sure that when reading the partial words we still got the same sounds. That doesn't just come from study though, that comes from being surrounded by the language for years until it becomes second nature. Otherwise, there would be mistakes, and in your typing you show few to no mistakes at all where typing the way you do is concerned. Also, it is common amongst people in America who intentionally don't spell out full words in their typing that when they want to type the word "you" with minimal letters, they type "u" instead of "y" or "yu". The fact that you did this shows a familiarity with American-English texting and email-correspondence as it does the exact opposite of what you had been doing with most of your other words. With your typing, you group together necessary consonants and skip vowels entirely because you know that in the English language, we build our words around vowels; while we may have words like "you" that technically consist entirely of vowels, we do not have a single word (that I have ever heard of) in our language that consists entirely of consonants. We, as Americans, actually have a very hard time pronouncing words in other languages (like Hebrew) that have no vowels, and it's entirely because we have no words like that ourselves. You know this, and what's more, you know how Americans place vowels when there are none. For example: You know that typing "rspnse" would translate to "response" to an American because we recognize parts of the word and in our minds compensate for the vowels that aren't there. However, to know which letters to keep and which to drop, you have to know exactly which ones make what sounds, how the word would sound without vowels, and be familiar with the full word.

      To move onto exhibit B of why I believe from your typing that you're an American, let's revisit something that I've lightly touched on so far but haven't explained. Your use of the word "you" as "u", and other words like it like any1. This is quite possibly the biggest dead giveaway that you're American out of everything you've typed so far. If you were an English learner, and your learned method of communication was to avoid vowels, you would avoid vowels altogether. You would not insert the "e" at the end of "rspnse", and you would not use the letter "u" to convey the entire word. If you were studying English you would have learned that the only way to spell "you" is with those three letters. You would not know that that word, and that letter alone, share the same exact sound. Most likely due to a rigid learning course and a non-American accent, you probably wouldn't associate the sound of the letter "u" with the word until you started extensively texting Americans, and some of them were just lazy in their typing. Even so, it's not likely that you would also know that "anyone" and "1" have the same exact sound were you to take off the "any". Lazy Americans who text do that, but you would not have learned that in your foreign language studies as I am aware that other countries are almost invariably stricter with their foreign language studies than America is. That's one reason why other countries hate us so much; they think we're lazy and stupid. Even less likely is that you would have learned in your foreign studies "when being lazy, it is acceptable to skip most vowels, but some of them (especially the ones at the end) must always be there, or you won't be understood". The fact that you put an "e" at the end of "rspnse" means that you're very familiar with how the word should be spelled, and how it sounds, but only put in enough vowels for the reader to get the correct sounds on the end and the beginning. When we read, we don't read every letter in a word. We read the first and last letters, and maybe one or two in the middle depending on how long the word is. But you're aware of that fact enough, and familiar enough with the English language that you have no grammar errors (for the most part), and you have no spelling errors that don't make sense. You obviously have spelling errors, but they all make sense. You also know it well enough to know when you need to include the first and last letters, when you need to include vowels, and when you don't. You also don't seem to have any foreign mannerisms in your typing. All of this screams out at me that you're a native English speaker, but none of it gives me the slightest impression that you're foreign at all. To top it all off, you replace the word "two" with 2. I mean, come on. Someone who was learning English would not learn that those words mean the same thing, because they don't. It might even be a while in their studies before they learned that those words sound the exact same. Someone who was learning English would not substitute the word "to" for 2, as it wouldn't make sense to the learner, let alone who they were typing it to. An English learner would confuse the words "two" and "too" with "to" before doing so with "2". You're literally typing with the least amount of letters absolutely possible.

      I can't speak for Isa, but you've now insulted my intelligence, my rationality, my ability to reason and defend myself, and even my integrity. I don't come to this website to be questioned about my sanity, or ability to do research, or morality, or anything like that. I come to this website to be questioned about one, overbearing, topic: vampirism, and my knowledge/experience about it. I'm not here to convert anyone, I'm not here to induct anyone, and I'm not here to control or manipulate anyone. My sole purpose for being here is to provide information about vampirism and my experiences/knowledge about it to those who seek that information. You don't have to believe me, you don't have to listen to me, or agree with me. But I ask for two things on here: That you respect me, and that you respect anyone else who is on this website. Part of that consists of voicing your dislike (or disbelief) of what we have to say elsewhere, and part of it consists of not wasting our time by telling us pointless lies, and then acting like we're unreasonable for not accepting bullcrap, or that I am specifically cruel to people just because they're not American. I'm not a prejudiced person, but if you're going to talk to me, at least show me enough respect to not mess around and fling bullshit just because I'm actually capable of thinking for myself and perceptive enough to catch you in your entirely pointless lie. I've never felt that I know everything, or that I'm never wrong, but at the very least if you're going to lie, make sure that there's a point, and that it's not obvious. I guess that's all I have to say about that. Don't push on the subject; I can obviously cover my bases.

      Thnx 2 both of u, Daniel and Isa. Daniel, so u mn 2 say I'm an American? Ok i cn undrstnd tht my accent shows tht i'm an american cause i'm mstering in american accent.

      Isa ap Eirias 2 years ago from Columbus, Ohio

      Thank you Daniel,

      In general I don't understand the use of spells of any sort as in my experience they tend to be simply tools that act to help the person using them focus their mind better to shape energy the way they want. while it can be helpful for someone just starting out it usually develops into an unnecessary and wasteful crutch. Most people I know that practice spell work seem to expend more energy than they need to to get the same results.

      On the topic of 'vampire spells' elena Daniel is correct in the statment that their are no spells or ways to turn a regular person into a vampire. it's an inborn trait and something that you either have or don't. their are individuals known as spiritual predators that feed off of energy in much the way that psychic vampires do however this is by choice and not out of need and I've never really understood the reasoning behind it as it has some fairly severe inherit and unavoidable risk (truthfully even for psi-vampires like myself there are dangers present in feeding that we can only mitigate and not eliminate such as forming a 2-way bond to anyone we feed from directly that can be used against us by them if they have the necessary skill or knowledge, and it can also result in the person forming some uncomfortable and unwanted emotional associations with you).

      In terms of your spelling and grammar- while I'm not overly strict about it and I'm fully cognizant of my own failings in both departments if your going to address a question to me please use language more in line with your first post than the second one, I don't have the money available to hire cryptographers to decipher every question posed to me.

      Also,

      People from other countries may have grammatical problems with the English language because it's not their first, but they don't do what you did. I understand about being anonymous, but we wouldn't have known where you live anyways, and so you had literally no reason to insult our intelligence by pretending to be from India when it seems obvious to me that you have a fairly standard (for America) understanding of the English language and are just being extremely lazy in an attempt to fool Isa. I don't know why you feel like this would be necessary, but I feel like all dishonesty is direct disrespect, and that in this case it's a waste of time.

      I understand that some people come her to fool around, and some people are just a little too unsure of the idea of vampirism to take it seriously, but pointless dishonesty and testing astuteness is not conducive to a serious, open, mature environment. I'm not exactly sure about Isa, but I know that that's the kind of environment I would want for a website that I'm going to put hours of my life into to try and help others. Just something to think about, I guess.

      Elena,

      Even if spells were not dangerous at all, that's not the kind of magic/power/whatever you want to call it that most vampires use. That's not what comes naturally from being a vampire. That's generally witch territory. With that, and the knowledge that humans can not be turned into vampires, you should know that (for the most part) there are no vampire spells. There may be spells that involve vampires out there, but for the most part if someone tells you that they know a 'vampire spell', they're probably bullshitting you.

      To sanjana and dck (You may well be the same person given your equally poor taste in language usage). Why do you think I or any other vampire needs to seek professional help? I generally don't attack others beliefs but think about this: Billions of people around the world think that if they murder someone and then apologize a beardy guy in the sky who came down and raped a woman over 2000 years ago so that her son could die for them. and not only can they get away with murder this way, that can beat their significant others, they can discriminate against others, force their wives to go out wrapped head to toe so only their eyes can be seen, declare war on other countries for believing in a different dead guy, or for praying to the same dead guy differently.

      Now who sounds more delusional? The people that think they are free of moral responsibility because of someone who died thousands of years ago, or the person who has been proven to have to do certain things or face negative consequences. Keep in mind that I did speak with a therapist on a regular basis regarding other issues and she honestly saw nothing unusual about my psychic vampirisim nor the influences it had on me, in fact she's the reason I'm so adept at handling my more predatory instincts.

      To Elena, I generally suggest avoiding spell work if you can avoid it as it can muddle the waters unnecessarily. Spells of any sort be they the weastern worlds traditional witchcraft or some of the more esoteric eastern cultures methods are all ways of focusing the mind to manipulate the same sort of energy that psychic vampires (a friend recently suggested the term 'pranavore' if you don't like vampire) feed on. If your wanting to learn the basics of it Michele Belenger's "Psychic Energy Codex" Is a great starting point for beginners, if your insistent on working with spells though Silver Ravenwolf has a series of rather helpful books that go through not just the casting part but also explain the logic of 'when' and 'why' a spell should be cast. If your just starting out on such things start small, learn to form and maintain a simple energy ball before to try an actual spell would be my suggestion.

      Nikki vampires are not immortal. In fact if you ever meet someone who claims to be immortal you should probably call their sanity into question. The closest thing to immortality a vampire of any sort could claim is the ability some psychic vampires claim where they keep their memories from one reincarnation to the next.

      In general vampires of any sort don't posses super human abilities. In fact all the things we are able to do instinctively can be learned by a normal person even the ability to draw another persons vital energy can be learned as a skill as it can be beneficial to the person the energy is taken from if done properly.

      I've heard of at least a couple of specific vamps in Florida before. I have no way of contacting them, so it's not really worth an email, but I more or less came across them in my really early days after awakening. One was named Gio, and I don't remember the female's. I have no idea of their actual power levels as I never met them in person, and they were doing a whole lot of make-believe and lying. My point is though, I wouldn't be surprised if there's a well sized community there. Though, I imagine it's a bit sunnier than they'd like. Anyways, good luck.

If your wanting to find people or groups in your area send me a message as I know a few Facebook groups that partner with vampire groups around the world.

      EmmaBee the perspective you offer isn't unique and it's one that some members of the vampire community have considered but it doesn't really make sense to us. It's hard to say that it's a human power when we are constantly having to take energy from others in order to stay healthy. personally I have to constantly drain a small amount of energy from wherever I am pr I start getting sick and at least once a week I have to engage in a major feeding from a crowd (usually at a mall or other public place so I don't feed from an individual due to personal qualms with that) or I start facing issues with tremors and blackouts, too long with out feeding and my bodies core temp will start dropping along with my heart rate, blood pressure, and other bio rhythms.

      So basically a vampire is just a way to reach your natural human inner power? it's the perception of it that you like?, honestly i would like to know about REAL vampires if they are out there, like legit fangs and shit, anyone can reach their inner power through nature, the best way to do this is dig a deep hole, put some rugs and thick rags and pillows in there so your comforable then get someone to cover it up with a stone, you will connect with the forced of energy, with all the electrical currents around us these days it interfears with our bodies natural abilities.

      Once you go into nature like this your body will start to come back to all it's natural abilities and heal your mind and body as it should and you will feel like you were re-born once again, anyone can do this. I'm a girl that is super intutive, sometimes i know what people are thinking but i have to have a connection to you to do this and i've had a few weird things happen to me over the years so it's no suprise vampires are super alluring to me.

      Honestly i think "vampires" like this is just people who are still in touch with how humans should all be, most people have very much lost touch because of all the corruption and the technology, they don't even know how a real human should even behave anymore, so there is those of us who are very aware and concious of that still who are lost because society outcasts us because they now fear the true potential of a true human being, it's sad really, so now we must hide in plane sight under some label just to be able to be ourselves. I know if real vampires are real (and i think there is a giant possibility they do), id probably fit in better there than in society these days, but even for you there are rules :( i know darn it.... lol rules... rules... so many rules... lol it sucks big time.

      It's very encouraging to hear from someone else with a different background, yet very similar perspectives. I'm always mindful of the fact that I could be wrong, but to hear that I'm not alone and not crazy amongst the people who make me not alone (for the most part) is very encouraging. It's also good for people who seek knowledge (especially about topics that are so elusive in their true form as vampirism) to get multiple perspectives, and to hear from more than one source on the same topic. I appreciate you posting on these hubpages; it's good for me and other readers. I wish I had the money to attend events like Kheperu's open house, and get around a bit actually meeting people. But such is life, that we spend most of it searching. Anyways, thx for posting.

      Isa ap Eirias 2 years ago from Columbus, Ohio

      Sorry I got a bit behind on this Aisha like Daniel I'm always willing to answer questions though I do also suggest people do their own research as well. Though my interactions with him have been limited to here Daniel has had pretty much the same views as me on a lot of things though we do have different personal experiences.

      Going back to one of your earlier questions that didn't seem to get an answer- no there is no way to tell a vampire from a normal person on sight. We do in fact look like normal people and it's not like we have fangs, red eyes, or burst into flames in direct sunlight. The only real way to tell us apart from anyone else is by being aware of energy and actively trying to sense it, however how a vampires energy feels tends to be different for each person some people say it feels heavier, some say it has a magnetic pull to it, other say it has a feeling of age that is disproportionate to the actual person.

      When it comes to the healing it depends. None of us are exactly going to stand up from a bullet to the head or heart like it's nothing. Again were still essentially human with a few added traits. I've met some vampires that couldn't fight off a stiff breeze without sneezing, and I've known others that never got cold and could recover from broken bones in a matter of days. The amount and frequency we feed seems to have an impact on this, if we only feed enough to keep ourselves from having major problems our bodies aren't very healthy as we are essentially starving ourselves slowly, if we feed constantly and in large amounts then our bodies tend to use that excess energy to reinforce itself in small ways instinctively, our immune systems function a little better our bodies are a bit better a repairing themselves, etc.

      I've personally met and interacted with several dozen other vampires face to face courtesy of the fact that today's technology allows us to arrange events months in advance. The best example of this would be House Kheperu's open house which is an annual gathering of energy workers and psychic vampires in Cleveland that started off with a couple dozen individuals from across the US and has since grown to people from around the world numbering over a hundred who spend 4 days sharing ideas, learning, getting to know each other, and generally just being normal people with a shared trait. There are also groups of vampires both psychic and sanguine across the US such as the Atlanta Vampire Alliance and New Orleans Vampire Association that work with people in their local area to understand their abilities when they first start out.

      If your wanting to look at some more technical information you can also look up Suscitatio Enterprises, LLC which is the only company in the United states that researches vampires. The founder is a rather intelligent man and worth talking to when he's not busy trying to juggle the demands of life.

      Once again anyone with questions for me you can reach me at First_Isa@hotmail.com, I will however due to the fact that I've gotten somewhat less tolerant of *ahem* BS from people I've started ignoring questions about turning for the reasons I've already explained in my previous comments here.

      Well I've met a lot of people who claimed they were vampires, but not many of them were telling the truth. I know my Mom who is one, and my old apprentice was a vampire. I had other students but not very many of them really took to the training, or could do it. I'd say that... to be sure without a doubt I have met 4 vampires in person. So not a lot, but that's 4 peoples' experiences and my own with vampirism, couple with my and my Mom's research (including her experience with the community when she was active). Like I said, I don't know nearly everything, but what I have to share I know to be true... through experience and trial and error.

    • profile image

      DanielNoctum 2 years ago

      Well it depends on the vampire. Most vampires, not all, have access to some degree of magic. But even amongst vamps everyone is different, so some have stronger magic than others, and some are more physically inclined than others. Even if you were to only consider the vamps that have magic, they're all so different that one may be able to read minds while another may not. What I mean to say is that yes, reading minds is possible amongst vamps, though not all can do it. Some are healers, some are adept at causing pain with their minds, some are capable of calling/drawing on elements, and some are -very- good at the whole 'faster than you can see them' or 'impossibly strong' thing (even amongst their own kind). Now with the healing thing you were asking about, I've never met a vamp who could heal instantly from wounds and the like. Nor have I met one who even claimed it. Seeing as though we're not immortal/invincible, I think the idea is ridiculous. I can't speak for everyone, but I think it's a pretty safe bet to make that vampires don't heal instantly from injuries. They may shake them off in the heat of a fight, but it doesn't mean that their cuts and scrapes close instantly or anything like that.

I'm just about always willing to share what I know with just about everyone. I don't know everything, but I feel that sharing what I do know helps 'the community' as well as non-vamps. People fear what they don't understand, but more importantly understanding other people helps to build a community and construct a future. I have always wanted to share this world with the people that I care about, and eventually with the world, in the safest ways possible. Many things have changed drastically in my life, but I still feel like making this kind of knowledge public, possible, and easy to find is conducive to a positive future. One that involves.

      Vampires are people. It's true that they are a people, and have their own communities, but honestly they are just people. This means that just like humans, they have many different religions depending on the person. Some are Pagan, some are Christian, some are Wiccan, some are Atheist, some are Satanist, some are Jewish, etc. They don't participate in one racial religion, or anything else like that, lol. There is documentation of older religions that talk about things like vampirism, and older communities that are portrayed as vampiric that had a communal religion, but whether or not those things are true (as far as I know) there has never been one 'Vampire Religion'. Like I said, vampires are people. Their religions span in number just as human religions do, and most of their religions are actually the same as humans. I can't speak for everyone, but as far as I can tell, vampirism is not a religion for vampires; it's a practice, it's a way of life, it's an existence and a race. But for most vampirism doesn't tend to be a religion.

      Daniel is entirely correct that dealing with the vampire community brings about a whole host of problems unrelated to the actual vampirisim. Youy have petty arguments, easily bruised ego's, constant issues with people feeling that they deserve respect just because they have been involved in the community for a decade or more. You have people like Todd Hoyt aka Sabastian Todd, aka Father Todd who will tell you what ever BS they can just to get a passing bit of respect and admiration and has repeatedly taken advantage of other people just to make a few dollars and has abused several people in the community around the world. There is generally though very little that a psychic vampire can do that a normal person can't do. Everyone is capable of manipulating energy psi-vamps simply have a natural affinity for it because they are more attuned to it, just as someone that has lived their whole life on a ship is going to be better at sailing that someone that's lived in the mountain's their whole life.

      Personally if anyone is truly curious about vampires I suggest the try contacting House Khepru who I've linked previously, the members make it a habit to share their knowledge but have little tolerance for fools or idiots. So if all your goign to do is pester them to make you a vampire don't bother, if you want to learn about vampire, otherkin, or metaphysics in general then they will happily talk with you and share their knowledge and they have an open house event every year in Cleveland in May for people to come and meet them.

      My issues with empathy are a small problem, I do as Daniel implied on a daily basis deal with entities that others would consider daemons and angels, I've had conversations with individuals that identified themselves as Gods from nearly every pantheon I've heard of and a few I hadn't until then, I can't pass a graveyard without at least half a dozen specters trying to get my attention either because they are lonely and want to talk or want me to do something for them or just to complain bout the noise of modern life (Pittsburgh was bad for that one thank you Versailles and Allegheny).

      But I'm more than just a psychic vampire. I'm a spirtual Thrianthrope (tiger to be exact) and that also causes problems for me. I have to remind myself constantly that the people around me aren't prey, that stalking things because it's a challenge that would provide entertainment isn't acceptable.

      I have heard of this before, but I usually don't mention it for a couple of good reasons. A: It doesn't actually turn them into a vampire, not even temporarily, it just gives them a very real need that their bodies weren't built to be able to fill, and forces them to learn the hard hard way or die. I have mentioned that it is possible for a human to imitate vampirism to a degree, but it is an uphill battle (on roller scates) for them, and even then it can take days or even weeks to figure out/produce something that it may take minutes to hours to learn. It can take a lifetime for a human to learn the basics of vampirism.

      Besides all of that, It's unhealthy for humans to practice at all, let alone have the problem that the person above is talking about. Not to mention all of the other problems generated by this line of work. The person above has only talked about their personal problems with their powers and the control thereof. They haven't mentioned the crowd they attract just by having power, let alone using it or being a part of the community they belong to. Demons, rival groups/factions, corrupt leaders, rivals within groups, the general public quite often... I mean oi vey. There are so many problems and dangers with vampirism that I don't believe you should ever involve someone into it unless you can teach them to hide and protect themselves thoroughly, as well as how to control themselves, AND you can do all of that for them until they can/know how to. And even then you shouldn't bring them into this world unless you can handle the responsibility and guide them until they no longer need you (even if they don't yet realize they do need you). I guess that's one of the main reasons my group was never very large.

      I don't often mention it because it usually causes me all kinds of headaches but for the sake of argument- as a psychic vampire- that is an individual who feeds off the vital energy of living people it's possible to create what's known as a sympathetic vampire. It's the closest thing you can come to turning another person into a vampire and is someone frowned upon because it's dangerous to them.

      A sympathetic vampire is someone who has been fed upon so often and had so much of their energy taken away so frequently that their body looses the ability to properly replenish the energy on it's own. That means they have to do the same thing that a psychic vampire does and feed from others to sustain their health- without energy in your body it looses the ability to maintain its self, your vital energy is what tells your heart to pump, your lungs to breath, your brain to fire electrical impulses and read chemical signals, you cells to divide and repair themselves so without it you become prone to any number of illnesses that the human body is normally able to fight off without issue.

      But this isn't permanent it's a temporary state and it's NOT SAFE the same thing that could make someone a sympathetic vampire could just as easily kill them instead and the little bit of research I've found on the phenomenon suggest that the state usually only last a matter of months sometimes a year or two at most until the damage of having been repeatedly used as a source of food for a psychic vampire has healed.

      The bottom line though is that while everyone thinks being a vampire would be great the ultimate truth is it's not. Being a psychic vampire has made me so sensitive to any form of energy that high temperatures, bright lights, loud noises, crowds, strong emotions, or anything else similar to those things are painful and trigger debilitating migraines. It's a double edged sword, I'm better in tune with the metaphysical realm than most people and I can manipulate energy instinctively in a way that takes practitioners of Qi Chung years or decades to learn. I have to expose my self to a crowd to feed and any group of people that I can't count on my fingers is going to have so much emotional noise around it that it's painful for me to deal with, but if I don't feed my health deteriorates rapidly If I go more than a week without feeding from a crowd I have asthma attacks, then my heart rate becomes erratic, my blood pressure starts bouncing between extremes, I develop hypoglycemia, my immune system tanks and becomes almost worthless and the problems just keep getting worse the longer I got without feeding

      Phoebe is right, there is someone collecting emails for some stupid scam. Someone else who emailed me from this site got the exact same email from the exact same person as I did. It starts out saying, "I am Mr. Richard from United State of America..." If you see this email, then please disregard it. Delete it, ignore it, report it, etc. The choice is yours, but throughout the email the author proves to be full of crap in more than just not knowing that the US is more than one state.

      With people like this, Phoebe is absolutely right: They aren't real or true, and they're just scam artists. People may have gotten a little more creative on how they present or lie to you, but the bottom line is that when people are offering to turn you into a vampire, they are in fact lying. Vampires are real, as I've said before, but they are usually not at all what most people expect them to be. Vampires are born, not made, and anyone telling you differently is selling something. Sanguinarians (sanguine=blood) do drink blood to sustain their energy/power/overall health/whatever, but by no means does a vampire biting you mean that you will "change" into one. Vampirism is genetic, yes, but just because it's in a vamp's blood doesn't mean that them giving you that blood will turn you.

      If someone ever offers to "transfer blood", or give you theirs, turn them down every time. It isn't safe. You have no idea what kind of diseases they might carry, or hat kind of sicknesses that their immune system has fought off that yours may never have encountered. When you get sick it's because you have some how taken in a virus that your immune system has never before encountered. The process of healing is where your blood and immune system work together to fight off the virus and create an immunity for it. From that point on you will never get sick from that exact virus. The reason we keep on getting sick throughout our lives is because viruses mutate and change into something that our body isn't immune to... that and the fact that there are so many viruses out there. Exposing yourself to someone else's blood risks exposing themselves to the viruses they may be carrying without even knowing it.

      Vampires are real, but they are much more human than a lot of people may know or care to know. Most of fiction about vampires has some grain(s) of truth to them, but those facts are sandwiched in between fiction/fantasy. Some fantasies are more liked than others, and some work more efficiently to appeal to and involve readers into the story. The fantastic idea that anyone can become a vampire is in fact fantasy.

      The point of this fantasy serves two purposes: To empower the vampire(s) of the story, and to empower the reader/non-vampire human(s). It empowers the vampire by saying that they have the power to turn anyone they want, and can bestow it like a gift, but also they can bestow it like a curse to anyone they may want to control or specifically unleash and negatives sides to vampirism on. It empowers the humans/reader because it tells them that they can be whatever they want to be if they are willing to try. This is why it is in most vampire fiction, but it is untrue. Again I say, for whatever it's worth, vampires are born not made.

      My main point in saying all of this is to tell everyone to be careful. Vampires are real, but a lot of the people telling you that they're one of them are probably making it up. Keep in mind that regardless of what people may say, no one is immortal. one of the most important things to do is to survive. Don't jeopardize your health for something that may or may not even work/be true, and on top of that something that you may not even want (regardless of whether or not you realize that).

      My email is already on here and I've already been contacted by one of these scammers so I have no problem leaving my email again for those who would like to contact me but don't wish to scroll up to get it. I have had meaningful conversations with multiple people who have either appreciated what I've said, or not, believed it, or not. It's ultimately your choice as to what to believe, but I can confidently say that I will tell you the truth as I know it about vampires. I don't know nearly everything, but I would be happy to share what I do know. You may not like what you read, but at least I won't be scamming you for any reason. I have nothing to gain from sharing this information with you, and I'm not going to ask you to pledge anything, or pay something, or whatever.

      All I ask is that you be respectful and open minded. My email address is 8228danielnoctum8228@gmail.com

      Anyone reading this, be careful putting your email, cause there are scammers out there collecting emails. And I just got one, asking for my details so they could do the blood transfer threatening me if I wont give my details they will sent their kind to bite me(and I have long been waiting, but nobody came, not even a single mosquito). Dude, seriously, blood transfer is done through blood transfusion. Wake up. If there are real vampires, they will sense you and they will come to you directly. But there aren't any. Just some cults trying to pamper you with your so lost soul.

      I don't know of anywhere where vampires really wouldn't be. I'm sure there are many in India, but I have no way of knowing other than the fact that they're much more common than people might think.

      Asking if vampires are good or bad is like asking if humans are good or bad. We're all people, and we all have the capability of being both good and bad. It's all about choice. It also depends on who you talk to. People have prejudices.

      Ok, cool. We've both apologized about our miss-communications, you're cool in my book so far, cool. I felt like you were talking about me, and with my reply it made sense that you thought I was the author, and I felt entitled to defend my point of view, but regardless you are entitled to your point of view. It's a perk of being (as I like to say it) a human -being-, regardless of whether or not you are actually human. So tell me, why do you find this hub page story false? And why do you specifically think that this person has nothing to do with any kind of rank in the community (of which I would know nothing really)?

      First of all, you don't know whether or not that person experienced those things unless you experienced them with that person, are that person, or experienced the opposite with that person. That is if you're talking about the author of this hubpage. I personally haven't posted my story on this specific hubpage, but if you were to read it you would understand that there's no base in calling it fake or factless. Especially sense 100% of it is personal experience. Unless you were talking to Mehdi, that was an unnecessary response. If you were talking to Mehdi, then I agree with you full-heartedly , and apologize for assuming you were talking about me or the other person who was talking about their empathy and such. Yes I said it, and am no stranger to apologizing when I realize I was wrong; which happens more often than not. I can only hope that the same can be said of you.

      Perhaps you should refamiliarise the garbage you posted, your "story", before you consider others as self-absorbed. Then you may come to understand what provoked the response.

      DanielNoctum 3 years ago

      Thank you, "A" for that entirely vague, self-absorbed, unprovoked response. You did well at not making sense.

      As for Mehdi, I wasn't going to respond at all until I saw that there were already two responses to that post (which spurred the response 'really people? That post is what you choose to respond to/believe in?'), but people are people. Oh well. All I can say, for whatever it's worth to people, is to not fall for obviously fantastical, made-up, fruitless crap. If you're going to fall for something, or chase something that you're unsure of the veracity of, at least 6/10 times you can trust that it's bullcrap if what the person is saying A.) isn't very intelligent, grammatically correct, or just doesn't make sense, and B.) if they're claiming to be a high official on an unofficial site or if they make other baseless claims that they can't even explain. This applies as not only does his/her post not make any sense (I can't tell if they're saying that they've given up on becoming a vampire, found out how and can guide others, or asking for someone to guide them on how to become one... or a mixture of all three?... no sense made), but they also don't have the patience to read long posts for whatever reason? This tells me that they are just being an internet troll looking for occasional entertainment in responding to people who believed he/she could teach them how to turn into a vampire.

      Okay, now for the small part that deals with my belief/understanding brought to me through research and experience... Most of the time you can also discount what someone is saying as true if they're saying that non-vampires can turn into vampires. Vampires are born, not made. Most people don't want to hear that, but it's true. There may be some truth in what they're saying about other things, but 'turning' is one -very- common misconception.

      Honestly, you need to give more information. Where the dreams are concerned: What kinds of dreams are these? What's happening in them? What sentence is being repeated, does it mean anything to -you-, and what else is happening in them?

      Where the shed dwelling vampire is concerned: I'm not sure what your friend saw, but saying you "saw" or "spotted" a vampire is a lot like saying you spotted a human. Not all, or maybe not even most, vampires are super into Gothic style clothing. Vampires, at least most of us, look just like humans. So maybe she should be more specific about what she saw too?

      The screaming thing is weird. Does she hear it in her head, or as if she as hearing any other noise with her ears? How does she feel when this screaming happens? Has she noticed something that was just... 'off'/out of the norm that seems to happen when she hears the screaming? Is she perhaps creating the scream in her head to maybe inwardly voice her feelings, or is she maybe hearing a loud neighbor with the adrenaline rush of being angry or something? Or is she hearing spiritual/dead-people screams like you're implying might be the case? That's why I'm asking these questions; to try and figure out what's going on (or to at least help narrow down the possibilities).
