I have always been different from other people. From the age of six I have experienced some of the "unknown." My youngest memory is a little fuzzy but the most important part is not. I was terrified of the dark and can not remember why now; but I would sleep with my mother and father at night. I would start out in my room sleeping and for some unknown reason wake up and just be terrified. I remember running to my mother and father's room for their protection only to see some kind of shadow standing over their bed. That was the first memory that I have had, but it is not the last.
I went to stay with my great grandmother for a few weeks in the summer when I was about the same age. We had been outside and went in to eat lunch and then a nap. I awoke from my nap to see a man sitting in the sun room of my grandmother's house. He was not a scary man, but a very friendly man that I made a connection with instantly. We talked and talked and I finally asked him his name. He laughed and told me that he was my grandfather, and what a silly little girl I must be not to have known that. Well, after talking with him, (which looking back now was not a short conversation) he sent me to get my grandmother. I did, and when I returned with her, the man who said he was my grandfather was gone. I did not think anything about it then, but my mother thought a lot about it. When she came to pick me up and I was telling her about me meeting my grandfather she started arguing with me that I could not have talked to him. Being a stubborn child, I was not going to agree with her. She told me I could not have met him because he had died when she was 6. Still to this day, I know for a fact that I met and talked with him. I sat in his lap for a long time just talking to him. It was not a dream or my imagination.
When I was about 13-14 I moved in with my grandparents for problems living at home and school. No matter what time of day or night I never felt like I was alone. I could sit in the kitchen or on the couch and always feel like someone was walking behind me but nothing more than that. That feeling never bothered me because I always assumed it was my angel, and it was just passing through. I kept that same frame of mind for several years until I lost a loved one. Shortly after he passed away every weird things started happening. Pictures would move, TVs would turn on and off, things would disappear and reappear in a different spot, and then one night I felt someone lay their hand on me as if to say, "It is going to be okay." Well when I looked up to see who was there, there was nothing there.
A lot has happened since then. When I graduated from high school and moved to another town to attend college my spirit experiences stopped until here recently. And more things have happened here in seven months than in my entire life. I am writing this story to ask for help because it seems like I am now under attack from something and my children and myself are scared.
I bought my house a little over a year ago. I bought it from my step-mother and father. They lived here for six years before I bought it. Nothing wonderful to tell about it, or nothing weird had ever happened here. I brought my daughter Aila home from the hospital on March 6th. The day I brought my daughter home, something followed us. I put her to bed in her room and my husband and I were making sure all the baby equipment was working correctly. After that we decided to watch a movie and call it a night. After the movie we were hearing something breathing heavy on the monitor. After a few minutes of trying to figure out why she was breathing so hard, we figured out that it was not our daughter because she was coo-ing in the background while the "thing" was breathing on the monitor. My husband flew to the room and brought our daughter to me and forbid me to ever turn on the monitor again. As of this date we have not used it.
Not long after that, when I would go to bed, I would feel uncomfortable. Again, that feeling of not being alone crept upon me. Then my 2 year old son stopped playing in his room and refused to go in there not even for one minute. Then things started to progress a little. Every night for the last 4-5 months something unexplained has happened. Lights flickering without cause, toilets flushing, fans unplugging itself, hearing foot-steps and toys turning on without cause. Not to mention seeing a man walk by my window when there is no way he can get in my backyard without a key is a really good indication that I am not here alone. I am not the only one who has seen him or his actions. All of my family has experienced something. All except my youngest daughter Aila.
Night before last I went to sleep and was awakened by a HORRIBLE noise in my right ear. My first response was to jump up and get the noise away from my ear. I could not move. I could not move my arms, legs, eye lids, or mouth. I tried to scream but my mouth would not open for anything to come out. After about five minutes I was released only to be left terrified. Can someone please help me or tell me where I can find the help that I seriously need. I am tired of being scared of things I can not explain, and I am tired of not being able to comfort my children or my self. Any and all advice will be greatly appreciated. Thank you and God bless
