A British woman identified as Amanda Teague has narrated her ordeal in the hand of her spiritual husband, whom she said almost killed her when she tried to quit the relationship.
The woman reportedly married the 300-year-old ghost of a Haitian pirate Jack, who allegedly died in the 1700s after being executed for thieving on the high seas, on a boat in international waters.
However, Amanda, from Northern Ireland, was forced to undergo an exorcism after his spirit ‘possessed’ her and left her hospitalised, Metro UK reports.
The former Captain Jack Sparrow impersonator said their spiritual and sexual relationship was giving her serious health problems and threatened to kill her if she tried to dump him.
Amanda suffered with painful abscesses, developed sepsis and was told she would need a colostomy bag, but was ‘incredibly’ healed after she eventually managed to get rid of Jack.
‘After two weeks of marriage, I started to get health problems. I started to get reoccurring perianal abscesses and I was suffering from cirrhosis.
‘About four or five months in, when things started to go really downhill, I went back to some of the people that had communicated with Jack. ‘I know the symptoms of possession and part of it is ill health.
‘So I was concerned that it was to do with the relationship because of the timeline.
‘But I was assured that he was a lovely spirit who wouldn’t harm me.’ But after her dog Toby died, Amanda says she spotted a major ‘red flag’ about the relationship.
‘I knew his passing was imminent and I’d asked Jack to keep him until it was my time so we’d all be together.
‘But Toby wouldn’t go to Jack, he was incredibly aggressive and wouldn’t go near him. ‘In the end, he had to go to my mother because he just didn’t want to be near him.
‘Animals are quite intuitive about people so this was a big red flag to me.’ But Amanda says that while the couple moved on from the incident, her health began to get worse.
‘I was getting abscesses recurring all the time after Jack and I would have any sexual relationship. ‘It was something that was at the back of my mind – I never had these before I was with Jack.’
She even cut off sex with the ghost in order to see if that helped.
‘Once I stopped having sexual contact with Jack, the abscesses started to improve. ‘And I’d say that was literally the best three weeks I’d had since we got married.
‘So anyway, one night, a friend of mine got married to her spiritual partner and Jack and I ended up being intimate.
‘The very next day, the abscess was back with a vengeance. So then I started to get really concerned.’
In May last year, Amanda was rushed to the hospital for surgery after developing sepsis.
‘I almost died and I was in the hospital for a week. I had to take my wedding ring off when I went into surgery.
‘That must have cut the energy link between us because I felt totally different after the operation. ‘I reconnected with my own spiritual team and I really saw a pattern about my health.
‘I really saw alarm bells. He had obviously been blocking communication with my spiritual team. ‘So I could see very, very clearly that he had been stealing my energy.’
Following the surgery, doctors warned Amanda that she might need a colostomy bag due to her ill health. A pal warned Amanda that she could have been possessed by Jack and that she should talk to him about it.
But when she confronted him, he threatened to kill her if she attempted to break off their spiritual union.
‘His reaction when I told him he had to leave was that he wasn’t going too. ‘And that if I tried to have an exorcism and get rid of him, he was going to kill me.
‘It was terrifying seeing a completely different side to the lovely spirit I had seen before. ‘But I knew in my heart that if I didn’t get rid of him, my health was getting so bad, that I was probably going to die anyway.’
Following the exorcism in December, Amanda says her health has drastically improved.
‘Previously, I’d had an MRI scan in November which showed that my bowel was perforated.
‘That’s something that doesn’t heal without surgery. So I had the exorcism and incredibly it healed up. ‘I’ve not had any more abscesses or bowel problems at all since then.
‘I went to the hospital recently and the junior doctor called in a consultant because she was like “I’ve never seen this before.”
‘If I hadn’t got the exorcism done, I think I’d definitely be going around with a colostomy bag.’
Amanda has written a book about her experiences and says she has sworn off all spiritual work.
She concluded: ‘I’ve quit it all because I’m terrified.’
