This article is dedicated to the misconceptions that the majority population, or “muggles”, as Harry Potter fans would call them, have about Vampyres.
Without further hesitation, here is my top 5 list:
All vampires have the signature vampire teeth. Not only is this a misconception, but an overall misunderstand of our species as a whole. There are many types of vampires, as you all know, and only a few of them have the signature long, pointed fangs. C’mon people, educate yourselves! 😉
No, we are not all aversely effected by sunlight. Even though I’ve been known to get a migraine here and there after spending too much time outside, which my brother blames on simple dehydration, I still don’t melt or turn into stone upon stepping into sunlight, as you’ve heard in fables.
Vampires are not more attractive than the average Joe. Even though you all see the vampires in movies and television shows, and see names like “Robert” from whatever that stupid movie is, we’re not all super models… We’re people just like you!
Harry Potter has nothing to do with vampires. Harry Potter is fake. Fiction. Vampires are real and all around. Please don’t patronize us or tell us that we are in the same category as a children’s novel!
Last but not least, we can be friendly. Please don’t think that just because I’m a vampire that I’m also mean, nasty and socially inept. We have feelings, and most of those feelings are good ones 🙂
One thing that makes Vampyres nervous and even pessimistic about their existence and their faith in who they are is the belief that they are alone.
There are many vampyres in the world, however, it is hard for us to find each other.
It’s hard for us to feel like a close-knit group or even a community because we are indistinguishable from other humans that we encounter on a daily basis. We could encounter one another at a coffee shop, movie (hopefully a vampire flick!), doctors office or baseball game. But we’d never know it.
I grew up in a hard working family. Our father own a landscaping businesses and was always outdoors. It was hard for him to understand why I didn’t even want to go outside, bask in the sun and follow his footsteps in the family business.
My cousin, on the other hand, really took to the family business. As a matter of fact, he opened up his very own tree care company, which you can check out by clicking here.
He is not a vampyre, however. He doesn’t know what it’s like to grow up in a family that doesn’t understand where you’re coming from, doesn’t understand who you really are, and doesn’t understand why you do the things you do.
So today I ask you to do something courageous. I ask you to do something you normally wouldn’t do.
Be PROUD of who you are. Be content with being a vampyre.
Before diving into the grandiose topic of Vampyrism, one must understand that there are several different types of Vampyres within the Vamypre subculture and throughout the world.
From Transcendental vampyres to Psychic vampyres, there is much to learn about the culture behind one of the most feared yet misunderstood groups of individuals.
First, lets delve into the topic of transcendentalism.
To be a Transcendental Vampyre is to become a being with an immortal soul.
One must undergo a personal and spiritual transformation in order to begin their journey into this type of life. Many have tried and yet few have succeeded.
Because of the very nature of this kind of Vampyrism, there are hordes and hordes of creatures, beings and humans that have clawed their way through the evil layers of consciousness trying to reach into thine cup of immortality.
However, there are some who have succeeded in becoming Transcendental Vampyres. There are few, and when you see them you will know who they are.
Some were once not human, but have now taken on the form of the Vampyres that we know of in modern times.
