Perhaps you’ve watched the show “Supernatural” and wondered how Cryptid Hunters like Sam and Dean Winchester always seem to hold their own with a plethora of paranormals who should be far more physically powerful than themselves. That includes biological form Angels and Demons! It’s true there is a history of them attaining temporary powers in various storylines so it’s plausible some of that power has lingered in some way. Or it could even be that the God of their reality has helped them. Overall, however, there is a confident determination to beat down all adversaries of righteousness! An undying belief in one’s own abilities and dedication to a just cause can increase the power of one’s soul which in turn supplies more metaphysical energy to the physical body.
Humans without powers or magical abilities, who go up against supernatural beings are the bravest breed there is! Even being a bodybuilder, or martial arts master doesn’t guarantee you’ll live when dealing with vampires, zombies, werewolves, solid form poltergeists, and all manner of malevolent monsters! However, based on our own experiences here at Mystic Investigations, where we are battling the dark forces of evil every day, we have to say that we are stronger than the average human! In fact, there have been supernatural studies of various paranormal investigations, and crime-fighting firms that show such humans as being stronger, faster, and more agile than even a professional athlete, or combat soldier!
One reason for this power increase is the constant challenge of going up against superior opponents. The pushing forth of our true physical limits that should theoretically take us past chimpanzee level strength! However many paranormal beings, including non-corporeal entities, have strong metaphysical energy auras that play a role in their super abilities. The same energy channeled through our Chakra’s connecting us to our own metaphysical energy spirit forms in the higher dimensions above. Exercising, and maintaining one’s Chakra’s has been shown to dramatically improve health and energy.
When in proximity to true supernatural beings, including ghosts & poltergeists, a human’s own aura absorbs the supercharged metaphysical energy giving them an energy boost during an intense battle. In essence inadvertent enchanted energy Jujutsu using the superior opponent’s energy against themselves! Perhaps Mother Nature’s way to help even the odds for humans. If this supernatural energy is absorbed on a regular basis it cleans out the Chakra’s, strengthens the soul, and flows throughout the body greatly increasing physical prowess, and even enhancing senses! There may also be healing, and anti-aging benefits to keep Supernatural Hunters in top shape while other humans have withered into a weak geriatric state. That being said the effect is far less than it could potentially be since it’s evil energy most of the time. The human soul usually cleanses and neutralizes it unless the entity is beyond powerful. Then such energies can have negative effects! Maximum supercharging can occur when in proximity to a good ghost, Angel, or holy being of righteousness.
In addition, humans in the world of the paranormal who happen to know practitioners of magic can benefit further from spells, and rituals to amass physical prowess. However, this is only to the limit their physical form can take since top-flight mystical practitioners are generally born with the ability to withstand the raw awesome powers of the massive mystical energies circulating throughout their biological form. Humans taking on the forces of darkness, and dipping into the magics may need more sleep than the average human since essential body & soul regeneration take place during REM dream sleep. Although, certain types of enchanted energies in various states leading to immortality may, in fact, eliminate the need for sleep altogether.
It’s said that humans who have consistently battled paranormal beings for their entire adult life end up being in their prime physically, and mentally at about age 45. This also takes into account the fantastical fighting skills they’ve acquired over the decades. A slow minimal decline may begin after 55 years of age but a 65-year-old supernatural warrior could easily beat the ever-loving hell out of a physically fit human in their early 20’s! Odds are if you’ve witnessed such a sight then that supposed senior citizen is most likely a courageous champion of justice who combats the despicable denizens of darkness!
