The story I am about to tell you happened to me sometime in the middle part of 1992. After coming from an overseas country, when I reached my home country, I decided that I will just apply locally and luckily after a week, I got hired immediately. The people in the company who hired me were my former colleagues from the first job I had from 1980 to 1984 so it was not difficult for me to adjust from everybody, only a few people were new.
On my first day in that firm, I immediately noticed something strange. On the reception area, where a table was supposed to be for a Receptionist, turned out to be like a decoration from a Funeral Parlor; like having 2 posts on each side and the decorated lights were exactly like the 2 posts that one will see on both sides of a coffin (like to shed light on the dead person inside the coffin during the wake). I get creepy feeling whenever I pass that office entrance.
On my second day, the Manager (my former colleague) called me and gave me a brief orientation about work as well as everybody but she mentioned something like I better be careful with my surroundings as I am the 13th employee since the 13th before me is pregnant and her blood pressure that time is presently raised so she was rushed to the hospital on emergency. Some of my other colleagues also told me secretly that they're just lucky, they're not the 13th employee and it was so creepy to think that the 13th employee's life is endangered... The pregnant colleague is having 50/50 chance because that time, she was put into the ICU. They even held a vigil prayer in the office while the lady was in the ICU. I was told that way but I dismissed the idea that I will be the next victim; I said maybe it was just a coincidence that she got sick. My colleagues said that it's not only the pregnant lady who happened to be sick but also the person who was hired before her, had some problems that he had to resign immediately.
Days passed but my creepy feeling did not disappear and I used to ask my colleagues what are these funeral posts doing in an office which is supposed to be an export office dealing with garments and not horrible office equipment display. My other colleagues said that that's the way our Manager liked it, it's like a recommended decoration of an Interior Decorator who did the place. My mistake was, I used to mock that decoration and termed it as "Funeral Posts" to my colleagues.
My day came. At lunch time after eating my meal, I felt severe stomach pain that I had to go to toilet to relieve myself but I couldn't do that because I am not used to doing that outside my home. So I wanted to go home but my place was far, it is 1 hour by jeepney (one of the public transports) travel so I just endured the pain and even could not work seriously because I was feeling sick, I was having goose bumps all over my body and felt so cold.
Finally when I got home that day, I did what I had to do and relieved myself. The worst part was, it was not only 1 time that night but several times then in the end, I got dehydrated because I couldn't eat solid food, my digestive system was not accepting it so I started vomiting until I was rushed to the hospital. I was checked at the Emergency Unit, had some laboratory tests and the doctors decided to confine me. I was in the hospital for almost 1 week.
As a flashback, based on the Doctor's diagnosis, it was "Amoeba" but the doctors got even surprised because the intake medicines I was being given were not affecting me. Unknowingly, when my Mother heard this, she doubted that my condition was not really medical sickness so she asked my younger sister and a friend to go to the Herbalist/White-Witch and have my condition examined.
The Herbalist/White Witch did the rituals with the Candle X-ray and she got surprised by what she saw from it... A demon with 2 long horns, with a dagger on his hand about to kill me... So she immediately took my sister as a proxy (said that only blood-related can be proxies), did the rituals with prayers, etc. That moment in the hospital, I was feeling very cold and my fever was very high, then after a while, I started to feel warm and energetic (when earlier I was feeling very weak) like someone's touching me from my head crown slowly down to my feet and the cold temperature I had is gone so I removed my blanket but I was surprised to see that my companion (who was with me inside the room) was still trembling with cold so I woke her up, and she got surprised to see me without blanket when some moments ago, I was shaking already, having chills and very dizzy due to high fever.
Then my main doctor came in, checked me and was so surprised that my fever instantly gone, my stomach size subsided and checked the records and she said that I can check out from the hospital that afternoon. So my companion called my mom and told her that I could be released because some miracle has happened. So I was taken home and reached there around 4:30pm. I was told what was done to me (through my sister being a proxy) when I was still in the hospital, and same, I told them what I felt that moment.
The following week, I tendered my resignation. I didn't even look at the funeral posts when I entered the office, I said a small prayer and I ignored it completely. I heard from my colleagues that the pregnant employee got saved, out of the ICU and scheduled for caesarian delivery a week after. The Manager felt bad when I gave my resignation but I explained that my life is much important than the money I'll be earning in that office.
So for you, my friends in this web site, be careful too, of displays especially wooden ones as "wood" has life. I get bewitched too by Masks (decorations on the wall) and even antique furnitures. Perhaps I just really have to train myself to use the protective light shield all the time to shield myself against evil spirits.
For sensitives like me, never speak anything if you see one, even thoughts can manifest out of your mind. Finally, we always have to ask for God's protection. This is the reason why I always read Psalm 91 in the morning.
