Physically Assaulted by the Unknown

Author’s note: This is the story of a Swedish woman’s ongoing terrifying sexual assault by an invisible entity. Read with caution.

The attacks started slowly; slowly enough Erica dismissed them as dreams. That small bit of comfort didn’t last.

“Half-awake, see a dark long shadow (in the form of a human body, but more diffuse lines), circling me super fast several times throughout perhaps two to three seconds,” Erica wrote in July 2010 in the diary she keeps to log her dreams. “Find myself immovable. Then several hands touch me over my body. Can’t move. Slightly uncomfortable. Relieved when it’s over.”

The fear, the helplessness, the discomfort of this nighttime encounter disappeared with the light of the new day, and Erica’s mind pushed the events away – until it happened again four years later.

“I felt (this) when living at a youth hostel on the Swedish east coast in July or August 2011,” she said. Erica felt a weight on top of her and waves of sexual pleasure while staying at a hotel in southern Sweden on December 17. Had she attracted the attention of a spirit entity? This wouldn't cross her mind until January. She wrote in February, “I need to raise my vibration, avoid negative feelings as they feed on negative energy.”

As recently as late December, Erica still felt pleasure from these encounters. She didn't begin to suspect she was under attack until later.

“Since December 22 I have experienced sensations as if someone was giving me oral sex,” she said. “Since December 24 it turned to sex and anal sex. Since January 4 I’ve felt a weight on my body, an energy, like the body of a being thrusting into me and moving back and forth above me. First I felt pretty good as I thought my body somehow made itself feel it but that spooky night really turned things around.”

While she lay helpless during these attacks from an unseen entity, loud, painful sounds of wind, classical music, chanting, and one time a girl screaming have also assaulted Erica. For a while she continued with the thought that this was simply her body producing these sensations and a few times simply gave into the pleasure from the invisible sex. Until the attack January 4. “I now realize how foolish that is as I don’t know what this (entity) is,” she said.

She was right, because her attacker soon brought pain.

“Since January 12, I felt sharp painful sticks like a needle on different spots on my body, followed by longer cuts,” she said. “This happens in the evening, at night, in the morning and on and off throughout the day.”

At first, the needle-like sticks across her body only lasted a few seconds, then minutes, then longer and more distinct, although these attacks never left marks.

“A few days later I felt a cut on my stomach while doing yoga,” she said. “During a walk outside on the 18th, my body, particularly shoulders and back, felt unnaturally heavy and I felt something sharp between my legs, like the blade of a knife.”

This feeling on January 18 continued on and off until she lay down for the night and her attacker crawled into bed with her.

“When trying to fall asleep, an energy-like substance moved under or through me and I felt the energy of someone lying next to me while touching my shoulder,” she said.

The next day Erica decided to start thinking thoughts of love during these attacks, hoping this would drive away the thing she knew had attached itself to her. The results weren’t what she’d hoped.

“After switching the light off at night I saw bits of red electricity, two to four centimeters wide, flying above me in the room,” she said. “I felt like it landed on my face.”

At one point during a sexual assault, invisible hands grabbed her own and Erica saw a vague, shadowy face looming above her.

“The 24th I woke up by the same thrusting motion and an intense pain in both of my arms,” she said. “This time I tried to endure it instead of being annoyed or scared. The next day the being seemed to follow me everywhere. I felt motions in the car, at an art exhibition, a bit later in a restaurant, and in the car after.”

By January 25, Erica began to think, “Get the fuck out” as the assaults began, followed by prayers, but nothing helped. It made things worse.

“It seemed to backfire because I felt something sharp against my throat in the bathroom and my breathing didn’t come naturally,” she said. “In the evening of the 26th I yelled out loud to leave me alone. During my prayer I heard a chuckle, followed by a ‘hush.’”

When she crawled tentatively into bed on January 26, she prayed to her guardian angels. Later, a comforting invisible hand brushed across her head and stroked her hair. Later, someone chuckled. As Erica tried to sleep, she felt the sensation of cuts on both of her thumbs. The attacks increased.

“The night the 30th I felt a painful cut on my left leg,” she said. “The next morning during a yoga relaxation a little stab on my stomach made me hunch over. Later when I said, ‘Get off,’ I felt something sharp on my throat.”

For fear of punishment, Erica has stopped yelling at her attacker.

“In the beginning, I felt the energy and movement first further away moving closer, now it’s more directly and increasing in persistence,” she said. “I felt sharp sticks on my body mixed with the other sexual sensations basically twenty-four/seven. Sometimes I also feel someone touching different parts of my body.” The sharp sticks almost entirely stopped in February.

Wherever Erica goes, the entity follows.

“I felt it when I lived in hotels in the beginning, at my sister’s place, at my grandmother’s and in my mom’s house. In the car, library, supermarket, outside, on train rides,” she said. “The location doesn’t seem to matter.”

She just wants it to go away.

“How can I make this stop?,” she asked. “Can this be a human being doing an astral projection to my location? Or is it more likely a spirit, demon, incubus? I welcome any thoughts.”

My first instinct as someone not well versed in dealing with spirits or malevolent entities would be to sage smudge the place regularly making the sign of the cross "in the name of the Father, The Son, and the Holy Sprit.." (may piss off this entity though)..put squares of camphor resin in every corner of the room and invest in a bottle of Fiery Wall of Protection oil/ have a vigil burned in the meantime. At the minimum.

That's what I would do to start unless I could hire someone who could constrain and tame things like that and figure out what it was first and foremost.

The way she's been dealing with it is obviously not working (sending light to an obvious dark entity only pisses it off I imagine) and the thing needs to be burned with actual protective measures, the way an intruder of any physical place would be burned, barred out, banished and/or shot down...

Most of my expertise is in dealing with the shadow people and I'm pretty sure I can tell you that they aren't what's afflicting you. The red lightning is a button issue though as red is linked to anger/rage but lightning is linked to fear, either way I would recommend a banishing ritual using water, starlight, and a blue lotus (or a picture), beyond that maybe try asking someone to be with you when this sort of thing happens and see what affect that has

Only the Catholic church has authority and power to completely exorcize the demon or demons. Contact your local Catholic diocese or parish.

Good evening.

1.  Recommend a full medical work up by a neurologist.  A lot of these "Incubus", "Succubus", "Alien Abductee" and "Old Hag" cases can be attributed to nocturnal/sleep paralysis.  For those times when you are awake, they could be seizures (petit mal), and you may be suffering from epilepsy or schizophrenia.  At any rate, a good medical work up will give you a good baseline, and, if all is within normal limits,  confidence that you are still in touch with objective reality.

2.  Get a witness and document the data.  A witness can confirm what is happening, ease the burden of holding a secret to yourself, and validate your experience. "Yes, I saw it too..." can go a long way in easing the whole experience.  Video, audio and photographic evidence will be useful to any investigators or other professionals you may hire, an can serve as a useful record for future investigators and victims.

3.  Recurrent Spontaneous Psycho Kinesis (RSPK), or telekinesis, is well documented in poltergeist cases (see the Rossenheim Poltergeist, Amherst Poltergeist, Zaragoza Duende and the Bell Witch cases).  The activity usually occurs/centers on one young person, usually a woman, that is under intense emotional stress/duress, and causes the victim to unwittingly generate the phenomena themselves.  An honest look at what is happening in your life (emotionally, mentally, physically) may be in order, and perhaps a mental health check up.

4.  This is not the first case of claimed spectral rape.  The Doris Bither case of 1974 comes to mind, investigated by Dr. Barry Taff and his team.  Here is his contact info: Commercial:  (310) 273-2864,  Mobile: (310) 270-8034. email:  barryetaff @  Web site:
He is a professional parapsychologist with years of experience, and witnessed first hand the Bither case, which actually culminated in nearly a full apparition (but did not. It was so astounding, however, that two of the investigators immediately fainted when the Entity began to manifest).

5.  Dealing/using religious ritual at this point may only give strength to the phenomena.  Your prayers have only made it laugh; so no amount of "smudging" or "crucifixes" by themselves are going to work, at least not at this point . If that is the course you would want to take, then you would obviously be invoking possesion (places and things are haunted; people are possessed), and would need the best exorcists around: the Catholics.  Thier ritual is complete, the doctrine solid, and they incorporate medical and scientific pre-screens before the Holy See would grant permission, through the local diocese, for an exorcism.  But, I mention this in passing: this is a last resort type of action.
I wish you well.  OM MANE PADME UM: as I take refuge in the Three Jewels of Buddha, Dharma and Sangha, I meditate on your well being.

i would suggest an energy healing session. get together a group of healers and have them work on her chakras. there could be some type of opening in her energy system that is allowing this entity in. while she has stated she has tried to surround herself in white light the assistance of others could greatly benefit her. some energy healers can also access and connect to other entities who may also be able to help rid her of this energy. i do highly suggest she gets some type of energy assistance. best of luck to her, i hope she can get assistance soon.

You are being attacked by a fallen angel. This sort of thing can only be cast out through prayer, invoking the name of Jesus Christ.

Find a God fearing evangelical christian to help you. Stay away from the catholic church since they will bring 10 demons worse than the one you have.

You need to repent of the sins that gave this entity the legal authority to oppress you and then bind it and cast it out in the name of Jesus Christ. Do not relent, Jesus has authority over all unclean spirits.

The only permanent solution against these entities is to become a christian, a follower of Jesus Christ. You will then receive the gift of the Holy Spirit, which no demon can fight against.

I will pray for you.

What you are hearing is known as hypnogogia, the sensations one can feel while incompletely waking up. It seems you've got a very bad case of it since it persists during waking hours. You should probably see a sleep therapist, and find out what is causing this. I know how real this can feel. Once I realized mine was due to taking opiate-based prescription pain meds, I quit taking them and the symptoms disappeared. You have some kind of serious sleep disorder. I wish you luck.

I have to agree with the other comments: call in a clergyman and have him perform an exorcism. If it really is a demon, it will be driven out. If it is merely something from the dark side of the mind, it should also work by the well known effects of suggestion.

This is a serious sleep disorder. Talk to your doctor and be evaluated by a sleep clinic.

Wow... some of these comments are way scarier than the original story.

@interzone: CSS reference FTW!
Also, Department 47 is right on. These comments are ridiculous. I second what witness said.

A month since the last post seems like a long time. Particularly since FTS has been my #1 "alt" blog site almost since the first instant Jason started blogging. Out of necessity I've had to shift allegiance in the last several months, as FTS posts came slower and slower. And now we reach 30 days without any word. IIRC there's never been a break this long, at least without prior warning.

Now, beggars can't be choosers; and bloggers who offer, entirely gratis, open access to their thoughts owe absolutely nothing to anyone. They can post or not as they wish. for any reason...or no reason. And no one can say a word in complaint.

But, damn I do miss reading FTS, which IMO is far and away the most intriguing, best-written, best-researched and most credible "para-crypto-alt" site on the entire interwebs. *cue Missing You by John Waite*

So, do you think you might come back, Jason? Cause you got people who need ya, man! Really need you. *sniff*.
