This is the first time I'm writing anything about my experiences. I don't find it easy to share anything personal with other people...
Ever since I was a child, I would occasionally have this feeling that someone/something was watching me, and it would always make me feel unpleasant. It didn't happen regularly (sometimes weeks, even months would pass without me experiencing it), but whenever it did happen, it would always be when I was alone in my room. As a child, I would deal with it by quickly leaving the room and looking for the presence of somebody from my family.
As a teenager, I would sometimes (usually during the night) have this feeling as if somebody was standing somewhere at the other end of my room. I never saw anything, I just had this slight feeling of unease, sometimes goosebumps. I would say my prayers, quickly ascribing the feeling to my imagination, and try to fall asleep.
The reason why I'm writing about this now is because recently (after a long period of not having any experience of that kind), I started to feel something stronger, and it didn't make me feel comfortable... First it sometimes felt as if somebody was sitting next to me on my bed, always on my left side. It made me feel unease (kind of like when somebody you don't know suddenly comes physically too close to you and invades your personal space)
Last night I was laying in my bed (it's a singles bed and I don't share my room with anybody) fully awake. The light was switched off, and doors and window were shut.Suddenly, I felt as if somebody was laying next to me, on the left side. The feeling was so strong, although I somehow knew I wouldn't see anything, I still didn't dare to look. Instead I turned sideways, facing the wall and hoped the feeling would go away. But it didn't. Then I started praying (usually it's Out Father, sometimes it's a personal prayer), but this time that didn't make it go away.
And then, suddenly I felt as if someone/ something brushed against me, touching me gently (or putting slight weight) just above my left hip. That's when I panicked, took a rosary that I keep close to my bed, and said something like " Please God, protect me from evil and send whatever that was far away from me". That's when the feeling disappeared.
I looked into it today, and although people say that it could be a ghost of a family member, none of my closest family members died in the past thirty years. I did move houses throughout my lifetime, but this feeling has been following me ever since I was a child, so I don't think it has anything to do with the house I'm currently in. And as I've written before, I haven't heard or seen anything unusual. Just this strong feeling of somebody's presence next to me when I'm alone.
Did anybody else have a similar experience? And if you did, how did you deal with it?
