I'm with ya. From what I've read about the guy, he was a sickening, self absorbed, sex-obsessed pervert. He was an embarassment, even to the devil.

He tried to do some uber-evil demon summoning ceremony at Loch Ness that takes a week to perform, but apparently got bored part-way through and failed to finish it. Interestingly enough, Loch Ness Monster Hysteria started only a few years after...

... coincidence? I'll leave that up to y'all.

What does a bowl of water by the bed do?
This has happened to me 3 x. One time I was in a store with the person and got away from him as fast as possible , no way to tell if I imagined it or not.
The other time was with an intimidatingly tall man. He was a former drug attict , though I suspected he was using (heroin , I believe but I know nothing about these things) he really scared me but no way to prove he was legitimately "creepy" or not. I sensed severe depression from him. Like all his sins had caught up.
This 3rd guy I do have (unscientific) proof something was wrong. He creeped me out , I believe he may have been considering kidnapping me , my proof is I had my dog with me at the time and when he went to pet my dog , he growled and snapped at him. This was the only time in 13 years my dog behaved like that.
You know , I have another story of a date I went on , but that's more , trust your gut thing. Later , through some simple research I knew why (police record said it all) something felt off.

I have experienced it Chango, and I know exactly what you mean. I have even experienced it on City Data! Yes, with people that I have never even met!

It is indeed hard to explain if you have never met such a person, but when you do, you know it. There is something "off" and just not right.

What do I do? I go with my gut instinct. I trust myself and do not second guess myself anymore. I'm always right.

So I steer clear. If I for some reason, have reason to need to be in contact with this person, due to work, or geographic proximity, I follow certain protocol which I am happy to share.

I keep all contact at a minimum. Even conversation.

No eye contact.

I do not share photographs, or birth dates.

Neither a borrower or a lender be! - ESPECIALLY in this case.

I an cold and with out emotion in their presence.

The threshold to my home is sacrosanct. Yours should be too. No one who I am unsure of crosses mine. No neighbors. No one. Unless we are close friends.

I surround myself with spiritual protection each night and each morning.

I sleep with a bowl of water by my bed each night. I empty it in the AM.

There are people who are needlessly competitive, wary of giving compliments or any exchange of good your way. Take note. Kind, whole and confident people are generous in every way.

These people are not, although they often coat there words in sugar.

Read "People of the Lie" by M.Scott Peck M.D.
All evil begins with pretense. These folks are among the most pretentious.

It is a popular practice in Eastern Europe. The bowl should only be used and purchased for this purpose. A Dollar store one is fine. It should not be plastic.

It can't hurt, and I find it helps. Especially because I read for many people.

Other people put an egg in the corners of the room. Eggs as the holders of nascent life have long been thought to have spiritual properties. They absorb evil.
Ok , sorry I didn't see that sooner about the water. Is it bad if my cats try to drink the water? (Serious question because I know they will) thank you

I disagree , thought it was an interesting story.

Interesting experiences! The third story illustrates why I love dogs so much!

"Sleeping with water" is an ancient Eastern European custom that I've heard about in my travels in that region of the world.

There is a book I have about Spiritual Protection that also mentions this and some other practices. Some stuck me as involved and even strange.
A beer bath? Putting moth balls all around your bedroom?
(I'd be afraid for my pets! Very poisonous. But apparently evil spirits don't like the smell of mothballs or beer.

Anyway, the water is supposed to attract and observe negative influences. We are very vulnerable when we sleep to the ill wishes of others, human or inhuman.

I have found that my sleep is more restful and my dreams less disturbing when I do this.

"Superstitions" are passed down for a reason. They are Pagan practices and I do not mean Pagan in a bad way. I'm a spiritual person, not a scientist. It's an easy thing to do, and it seems to help.

I would not let cats drink it, no. My answer is equally serious.

I have a story about this. A friend of mine learned of this practice and each day, (although I told her to flush it down the toilet) she took the water and tossed it over the fence on the back yard lawn of a neighbor who she did not like.

After about a month of this, she noticed that the grass over the fence and withered and turned brown.

If it could do this to grass, I would NOT give it to an animal!!!

My grandparents were from eastern Europe and I never heard of the the bowl of water thing but my grandmother had a religious picture with garlic around it, over every bed and over all the doorways leading into the house. I made a remarkable discovery; bad spirits HATE those room ionizers. I swear, leave one of those running for days and it will run them off.
