Demons & Alcohol: A True Story
I want to begin this post by delving into the etymology of the word alcohol. The word “Alcohol” comes from the Arabic “al-kuhl” which means “BODY EATING SPIRIT”, and gives root origins to the English term for “ghoul”. In Middle Eastern folklore, a “ghoul” is an evil demon thought to eat human bodies, either as stolen corpses or as children.
The writer and health enthusiast, Jason Christoff states that “In alchemy, alcohol is used to extract the soul essence of an entity. Hence its’ use in extracting essences for essential oils, and the sterilization of medical instruments.” It can be summed up that a person consuming alcohol can look forward to spirit-extraction. Since alcohol is called spirits often it is assumed that overconsumption can lead to the attraction of low vibrational entities. These low vibration entities are said to “take over” the body and leading to unintended consequences. Those that partake know that alcohol can unleash alter egos. Some people become pushovers while some become extremely mean.
Overconsumption has led to precarious situations and dangerous behaviors while the body is inhabited. One situation I am very familiar with is incubus/succubus. They latch on to others through drink, drugs, or sex. Laugh, but take heed because they are very hard to get rid of. Some call them spirit husbands or spirit wives but I prefer to call them what they are. They will suck the life out of you, literally. One day you are a productive member of society the next you are spiraling and unable to get footing; wondering what has happened to your life. I am very familiar and well versed with various demons. Therefore I can tell you whole-heartedly that body- inhabiting demons are the most destructive. They are clever and act fast. They destroy homes, finances, careers, create generational curses, and can kill.
I don’t want to put off your favorite drink, but I caution you not to overindulge. You never know what you may give permission to.
