Shadow Figure Causing Harm


I have been communicating with the dead since I was very young. I have had spirits show themselves to me and they would let me talked to them and they would tap back in response. I have been having some experiences lately that I have never dealt with before and it is starting to scare me.

I know that we aren't supposed to talk about dreams in our submitted story but the dream I am about to tell you has very high significance to what has been happening the past few days. I had a very strange dream 5 nights ago and in my dream a dark shadow figure with electrified eyes was hovering over me, the figure was literally sucking the air right out of me. I woke up from it with severe chest pain; it felt like someone had been sitting on my chest. 2 nights ago I had the same exact dream except when I woke up the figure was laying on me, when it finally got off of me I had scratch marks on my right foot.

I keep getting the feeling that this figure thing is trying to possess me in a way, and I do not know how to make it leave me alone. This thing has attacked me and my animals and I want it gone. I have never officially been told that I am a sensitive, but my old pastor told me that he had an feeling that I was one. If I am a sensitive will this calm down? Or is it going to get worse? How do I get rid of the spirit, is it even a human spirit? Is there any real way to tell if I am a sensitive?

I just feel way in over my head and I do not know how to get rid of this thing. Almost all my past encounters were with nice spirits, most generally my grandfather and a little girl. The only bad encounter I have had in the past was at a cemetery when a very young child acted like it was trying to get into my body. The only other thing I was wondering is if I am the only one that this kind of stuff happens to i.e. The dark shadow figure and the child trying to get into my body.

Do not mess around with Ouija. You do not know who you will be getting. When I was young, a friend and I had a spirit who said he was Chief something or other. Since my friend was part Native, she asked him to show himself to her. No, no, no! It was not a Native spirit, but a Shadow Figure who appeared. My friend could not get rid of it for a very long time even with contacting a priest and blessing her home.

It would be a smart idea to remember that spirits can see and perceive events far differently than most can understand, they are in a different plane - the idea of energy to them is like an endless flow of information - as it is to us, but at its purest and they can even move between 'time,' and the essence of evolution in itself. This shadow spirit - and honestly I don't believe it can physically harm you as I find believing that will only give the entity more incentive to torment you - is obviously using events it can foresee before you to aid it in its mission to bring darkness to others. Is it evil? Do you hear it? Do you know whether or not it wants something from you? The idea is that since knowledge comes to you on the lowest realm - before such a creature - you cannot and absolutely cannot believe anything until it is proven - especially if it says anything or moves things before your eyes or other such illusions. Are you sure you didn't scratch yourself while you were asleep? Did it move an object or is it taking advantage of a chance tremor or vibration that may have happened to try and get the best of you. This spirit could have foreseen this and is using this as a means to terrify you, don't give it the glory of actually causing such harm to you - because in all honesty as you define your reality you also define what can and what can't happen to you in both flesh and spirit.

I did a bit of channeling with my energy, I felt something dark about it - definitely, but it is nowhere as terrifying as you make it out to be. It tried to scare me with roaring - a typical thing that Anger and Rage Demons use to scare others and gain satisfaction from their response. Question, is anyone around you angry about something, are there deep festering rages hidden in the people around you. Your Shadow self may actually be trying to tell you that somewhere around you, or even in yourself, there is a suppressed anger, or energy deep within. Before calling this a demon, use your third-eye and see if it is truly a demon or a trick your inner-self might be playing on you to bring out repressed fears or emotions.

Getting rid of spirits is tricky; first you need to understand what exactly is going on - enough to know that removing the spirit will actually change this. I now this sounds strange, but you must remember that paranormal world is a very vague and expansive plane in the same words.

Listen, you have to question and realize there may be more to the events happening to you than just some spirit trying to attack you. You sure it kicked your cat? Are you absolutely SURE about everything this spirit has done? Question it, and then watch what happens.

I hope nothing but love and light for you!

First-of all don't give it fear
Second-it was a evil entity
Third-pray and pray
Fourth-if you think your pychic ask in a quite place and see if you get a vibe
Fifth-ask god if your psychic psychics believe in god and really religious people with chakras meditation and psi

Well, it sounds like part of the possession process then, the weakening down stage where your energy is feed off of. The question now, is which of your energies is it feeding from. For you see, each emotion is linked to a energy.

Well a week ago it scratched an upside down cross on my back, it went almost up to my neck. And since that happened I have been extremely exhausted and have been sleeping about 17 hours out of the day. The morning after it scratched me the scratch had disappeared and so did the shadow figure for about 2 days and then it came back. Since then I have been tired all the time as well a being very weak. Here is the link to a quick YouTube vid I made with the pictures in it.

please. Do not contact this spirit. Do not give it what it wants. It wants your attention only to make and create fear. Implant it and make you weak. You will need assistance from other phsycics in person if you are terrified of this spirit.

Well, given your age I wouldn't say it is the start of psychic abilities, in the form of a poltergeist. Now, as for what your grandmother did, that might be the link, she might of did a deal in exchange for something, but never paid her part, therefore, the debt passes onto the next generation and so on. So, figuring out what the deal was for is a good chuck, it will also tell you the demons real name. For I doubt, it is Beelzebub, simply because all minor and mid level demons go by the more famous names for the fear they invoke. What I am trying to say is a demon will never tell you its real name until forced to.
As for its description, it sounds like a shadow being, which are entities that are formed off of energy, and induce that energy in their prey to feed off of it. Now, if it is a demon once it has enough energy it will manifest itself into more terrifying form to really freak you out. And one last thing demons will possess their prey when they are weak, running low on energy so that can use that person to induce it in others and continually feed off of the person, it doesn't seem to have got to that point yet so I would not freak out about it.

So, for now I would say look into your family history, see what really happened.

I am 17, my birthday was feb.28th. I have never played around with things like Ouija boards or anything like that because I know some people who had some horrible stuff happen to them after using a Ouija board. That and my grandmother played around with black magic and curses and stuff and she died prematurely and my mom has always warned me to never play around with stuff like that.

I don't really know exactly what started it, but the energy picked up quite a bit on the night my cat died back on Sept. 11 2013. Like my computer turned on by itself and started playing music and there was tapping's in 3's on every window in my house. At the time I thought that tapping in 3's was a sign of like god or something but I found out that it's the opposite.

Today after I got back from seeing my pastor the thing hid my bottle of argon oil that I Just got today. I had put it on my bed and I left my room and it was gone, my brother checked my room to see if I had just missed it when I was looking but he didn't find it either. Then I told it to give me my stuff back and I left the room and came back and it was wrapped tightly in my blanket.

About 30-40 minutes after that the shadow thing pinched me and said "my name is Bezelebulb" in my ear I'm not sure if that's spelled right though. I told my godmother over the phone and she freaked out and told me to never say it's name out loud again. After it told me it's name it felt like my energy had been drained and my body felt really heavy so I layed down and it started to feel like I was being beaten. For like 15-20 minutes I couldn't speak, like I would try to but my lips wouldn't move. My energy is still taped out and my body is very sore now.

I did some researching and found 2 different things, the first is that it's the name for 1 of the 7 princes of hell and the other said that it's the second name for the devil. I have my rosary beads on and I have 3 sets of them above my bed now.

I have heard before that there was a way to shut down the sensitive part of yourself, but I haven't been able to find anything on how you do it.

I would just burn sage but my mom can't be around sage because it can throw her into a grand-mal seizure.

I told my pastor about the name it gave me and she said that if she was a priest instead of a pastor she would have done and exorcism, the idea of that scares me. We are Methodist and the church will not perform exorcism's.

My first question is how old are you? Also what occurred ahead of these events, such as did you dapple around with something?

My daughter experienced a similar situation. She was awake. This thing sat on her chest and she had difficulty breathing. Shortly later she lost two friends in a car accident which she was supposed to be in. She has always sensed spirits.

One has to also ask if this activity has to do with a type of warning. My husband at 15 had an evil entity say to whom he would take his life and burned him. Later in the future this scenario would test him.
During his youth he was scratched and slapped. I never found as the first person stated smudging pone self and other home keeps it clear fort myself and my husband, despite staying in a haunted castle my husband slept liker a baby while I worked with the willing souls who wished yo move on.

It is very important to be drug free and not use alcohol in excess.

You will learn as we all do about the whole scheme
As you study. You may wish to ask you spirit helpers if this is a deceased person trying to get your attention. Bear in mind just like regular. Humans there are mean and good who are desparate who you may not hear, but sense.

I saw my pastor today and she prayed that I would be protected. She told me that I was gifted and that it can be a curse at times. She says she thinks it's demonic and the next time I see it or feel it that I need to ask for it's name that way we know what we are dealing with. However she thinks that even if I can get it to go away that it will just keep coming back every once in a while. We are moving soon but she and I agree that its just going to follow me so I'm just going to have to cleanse myself from time to time. I don't really know how to feel about being gifted but I have thought I was for a while now, I am at the stage right now were I do not want to believe it but I know I can't change it. I even asked her if I could give my gift to someone else. But I guess it's going to take some time to get used to it, and now that I know that I am gifted I really need to learn how to block out the bad.

It's easier to scare people at night.

Have you tried those mediations? (grounding/cleansing/shielding)

It's hard to explain the feeling when it happens, I think the best way I could put it is that I kind of feel like I'm hovering over myself I don't know if that's going to make any sense though.

It has scratched me since I submitted this a few days ago, I woke up with scratch marks that looked like human finger nail scratches but were very thick. They went in almost a straight line from in between my shoulder blades all the way to my hip bones; and when I woke up with the scratches my whole back felt ice cold but yet really hot at the same time it also felt like I was being stung by bee's.

It has kicked my cat across a room before, it has thrown my rabbit's water feeder from his cage to the other side of my room. I have contacted a pastor but she said she had never dealt with this kind of thing, oh and the sight of a church now freaks me out for some reason. The last time I was in a church I started crying for no reason and ran out.

So many things have happened that I'm starting to wonder if I am insane because I am the one that its mainly going after. My brother told me the other day that he has had things happen to him but he refused to tell me what it was. My mom has had little things happen to her, like she will leave a light on and she'll leave the room and come back and the light is off.

I have noticed though that if anyone fights in the house that is when the activity is higher and then I get attacked. However there is something that I do no quite understand, in the day time the house feels fine but as soon as it starts to get dark it's like a switch is flipped and the house feels so intense that it feels like I'm suffocating.

It seems like the spirit drew energy from your body, and used it to physically affect you.

The first part seems like a old hag attack... However, with the addition of physical manifestation, it seems like demonic oppression.

One huge question is, what was your emotional state when it attacked you?

With it directly taking energy from you, I BELIEVE you can use defense measures used in cases of old hag attacks...
You build up negative intentions in your chest, and focus them there.
Then you breath those negative intentions out through your mouth, imagining them coming out as a fog covering your body.
You focus the intentions on striking out against anything intending to do you harm.

HOWEVER, if it's demonic oppression, the old hag attack is just one aspect.
The only success I've had in dealing with anything demonic was to balance my emotions, and surrender myself in a strategic fashion...
Basically, demons are full of themselves. Thin they can do everything right.
So, how I dealt with the one giving me issues was by letting it take a step inside myself, and letting it put it's money where its' mouth was.
I would not reccomend that for everyone... Because it basically means you need to be ready to sacrifice everything, without hesitation.
And I didn't come out of it through sheer will power... I came out of it by saying tomyself "I put all my faith in God and God alone."
Even then, it took about a week, and about 3 months to undo the legal damage it had done to my reputation.
Even going into it, I had things well under control, and I had support I could fall bac on, regardless if, even to this day, they don't know anything about the demon, or even me being possessed.
I also had to sign away my power of attorney, and sign over gaurdianship.

So, if that's not something you have available as a option in your life right now, you might want to find that old pastor of yours.

Another option is to associate with people that understand being psychic well enough to have their emotions in control, and who are not very selfish.
They may not beable to drive the demon off, but they won't feed it either, and they will be a source of comfort for you.

Just be sure to take steps to removing your fear, and you should have a good foundation towards the direction of beng left alone.

And, to be clear, don't try to remove/reduce your fear by taunting the spirit.
Don't just ignore it either. It exists, and it is there.

Just don't be afraid when it attacks you. Don't get upset if it breaks stuff.

Just clean up the mess, and move on with your life sort of thing.

Beyond that, heavily practice grounding and shielding, maybe 3 to 4 times a day.
Cleanse yourself maybe once every 2 or 3 days.

See if that helps.

God bless, and may you find peace.

I have experienced many things in my life. Always ignored them because I did not know what to do about them. I tell you just 5 years ago I dealt with a dark shadow, I said oh you don't bother me. Opted to ignore. NOT THESE THEY ARE PURE EVIL. I prayed and prayed (they effect others in house). But a few times I burned sage in the room several times, not for that reason, but one day I realized I did not see it any more. Prayer or sage or both.
