Do you know what a Doppelgänger is?

How do you know you’ve never met one?

How do you know you aren’t a friend to one right now?

How do you know?

Though many people keep their beliefs cut and dry…the truth of our reality is complicated. Such things as a Doppelgänger exists. What is it you say?

Well my “World Book Dictionary” say: The ghost or double of a living person; doubleganger.
My “Encarta World English Dictionary” says: Somebody similar to another person somebody who looks very like another person. Ghost identical to living person an apparition in the form of a double of a living person. Double goer.

In my second novel “A Lover’s Paradox” I had used the term Doppelgänger. My heroine was a Remote Viewer and had see what she thought was a Doppelgänger…it turns out it wasn’t but the idea of a Doppelgänger intrigues me.

The facts are; there is such a thing. And as it is explained in the mystical world, a Doppelgänger is a low spiritual entity that wants life…but the only way to get it is to steal it from a living being.

It is said a Doppelgänger will hover over a living being a slowly suck ethereal energy from the living being until it can draw enough to appear ghostly. Once it hit that stage, it continues to steal its chosen human’s life force until it’s able to physically affect the physical world, at which point it’s sucking enough energy from the human to actually create a real life body double for itself and walk amongst us.

The human it draws from could possibly never really ever be aware that s/he’s been robbed of their image. All they know is a lot of people say to them….”Gosh, I know a girl who looks exactly like you! For a minute I thought you were her!”

But the reality is, the Doppelgänger has joined the physical world working, living and enjoying the fruits of this reality…it is said these kinds of being are those who delved more into selfish behavior, many being cruel and self centered…LIFE IS FOR THEM AND THEM ALONE!

They usually are greedy and over indulgent…very shallow beings. Crime and violence usually litters their path.

So tell me…How many times has someone said to you… ”Gosh, I know a girl who looks exactly like you! For a minute I thought you were her!” It's possible you just might have a Doppelgänger of your own.

Who's possible Doppelgänger’s are the original Vampires.

Just something to think about.

WELCOME!!! Hugs!!!! Thank you for dropping on by.

LOL...well the best thing about a Doppelganger is...they usually don't come after the person they robbed the energy from.


Ellen Brickley said...

Hawk, that happens to me all the time! Less so these days but in college it used to happen me once or twice a month. And in most job interviews, I have to spend the first five minutes with the interviewer trying to figure out where they know me from. The answer is usually nowhere :)

It happens my mum too. When she was my age, she once had a guy come up to her in a bar and threaten her, because he was convinced she knew him and his wife, and he was in the bar with another woman. . . My mother obviously didn't care who he was or what he did! But he was so sure he knew her.

Maybe my Doppelganger vanished a few years ago but my mum's seems to still be active.

Oh no! Someone told me they thought I worked at this grocery store cos they had seen me there!

How many times has someone said to you… ”Gosh, I know a girl who looks exactly like you! For a minute I thought you were her!”

Believe it or not - never. And if such a girl existed, she'd have my sympathy.

Lori Sanders-Foley said...

I had a doppelganger in high school. I never saw her, but many in my community did. Occasionally, someone will say it to me now~now, I think few spirits want my life bwahahaha.

Houston A.W. Knight said...


Sounds like you've got one...but I'm not surprised, being that you're living in the land of Magic...and land where it all began. ;-)

OMG, your poor mom!The length of time that one hangs around depends on the doppelganger and the power it draws to itself to keep the illusion going...but they are very physical in deed.

Good luck! Tell your mom she might want to ask a wee one to help her out and protect her.


Houston A.W. Knight said...

BTW Ellen,

If your mom's prone to the mystical side of things...hook her up to me twins site...she has things there that can help!
You'll see a link to both of Jes' site (blog and products)on my right sidebar.


Houston A.W. Knight said...


Thank you sweetie! But I've got to say you've got a good one yourself this week! Awesome job you did and very interesting. Glad you enjoyed this one and happy you came by to comment. xoxox


Houston A.W. Knight said...

Blodeuedd, does you just understand why and how it's happening.

The reality of our world is so much more than we see.


Houston A.W. Knight said...

LOL...Mr. Valance,

You always make me laugh! (((HUGS)))
Boy it's hard to feel down when you're around isn't it?

Thanks for the tehehe!

But you know...when I saw your picture...I thought for sure you were an actor...are or were you once in acting? Because I could swear (and I usually don't) I'd seen you somewhere before! For real!

Big Hugs

Houston A.W. Knight said...


So have a wonderful life that walks on the line of both's no wonder they're attracted! Few people today can actually reach between the reality of both our worlds like you can. You are blessed.

Hugs always

A man called Valance said...

Hmm, now you've got me thinking...

Houston A.W. Knight said...

Mr. Valance,

So glad you liked the post and that it gave you something to think about while sitting on the porch.

Least gets your mind off Jes' in her leather pants! lol

When I go shopping at this one grocery store,people always come up to me and think I'm this Jennifer girl.They start talking and I have to interrupt them and tell them I'm not her.Then I get the ..OMG you look identical to her,I really thought you were her.
And then its a little more odd cause thats my middle name.

Houston A.W. Knight said...


OMG...sounds like your doppelganger liked more than your image...hummm, scary that she has your name as well!

Big warm hugs

Hi Hawk!

People tell me all the time I look like someone else, lol. A minster one time came up to me, called me by some other name, and asked how my parents were, asked if they were still living in that trailer. Well, I'd never met the minister before, my parents live in Springfield, in a house on the west side of town. They didn't know the minister either. So, I told him he was confused, I'm not ..whoever.. and my parents don't know him and don't live here. He looked at me, smiled, and said, "You've known me all of your life." I smiled back and said "No I haven't." Really creeped me out, lol. Now, he gives me that knowing smile and waves when he sees me, I think he's still convinced I'm that other person. LOL He doesn't get it that I have multiple doubles out there. But, it's happened to me for as long as I can remember. Now it's just normal for some stranger to walk up to me and act like they know me. Unless they get really annoying and insistent like the minster, I just let it go. I accepted a long time ago that as individual as I'd like to be, there's too many other 'mes' running around out there. I've yet to meet any of them. LOL Maybe it's because it really is me, traveling thru time, and we can't exist in the same place together at the same time. LOL It would cause a paradox and the world would end as we know it. Just saying.....


Dottie :)

verification word: witty

Houston A.W. Knight said...


Oh my..."All your life"??? He knew the doppelganger that long???? WOW!!!

Very interesting feedback you all are giving me on this!


Jes' Mysictal Treasures said...

Wow, there sure seems to be a lot of Doppelganger around...they must not like one says this about me...:<( I feel left out.
Have a great day everyone

Houston A.W. Knight said...

LOL Jes!

Why have a Doppelganger when you've got me? teehehehehehehehe

If you remember I saw your doppelganger years ago when I lived on the east coast of Florida...I even sat a chated with her for awhile....couldn't believe how similar she was to my very own twin! And YES she was as out spoken as you! LOL

Love ya'

Cecile said...

Very interesting post Hawk, but then again, you always have thought provoking post.

And I absolutely love all the comments! It is amazing the things we see and the things we say... without realizing what is going on.

I might have gotten that a few times in my life... but not as much as these other commenters. Wow... Very interesting!!! I will keep posted on this one...

Hope you had a great weekend honey!! Hugs to you!

Houston A.W. Knight said...

Hey Sweet Cecile!

What's interesting is that man in the past knew and recognized boht sides of our reality...where as today, modern man does not...that makes historical man a smarter man....because he understood more of our real world and how it worked.

This allowed man to use the energy around him (Merlin type like being) to preform what we'd call today ... "Magic" but back then it wasn't so uncommon to do this as it is today. has lost a part of himself with the loss of this knowledge...

Perhaps that's why our modern scientist have admitted that modern man has a big brain but only uses like (I forget exact quote) but something like only 1/4 of his brain ...where as a dolphin uses 2/3's of his...that's why Dr. John Lily said dolphin's where smarter than man...back in the 70/80's Lily had to stop his research with the dolphins because man's computer system couldn't keep up with the intelligence of dolphins.

Hugs Darlin'!

Vicki said...

Hawk, I love the story that the Doppelganger is in. :)

I've had people tell me I look like someone and my mom would always say that we all have a twin, so I believed her.

I didn't know about the ghost part though.

Houston A.W. Knight said...


Doppelganger's were very prominent during the 19th century, and very strong in wo/man's belief systems...Make's one wonder if our beliefs are what makes our reality.
