Visitors At The Bedside


I have always been skeptical about ghosts and spirits and encounters, thereof, being that I was rasied in a religious household and thought those types of things were the figment of the imagination of crazy people until it began to happen to me.

I don't remember when it actually began, possibly around the time of the death of my beloved grandmother, but that is another story. I seem to be at my most susceptible when I am sleeping, or just about to fall asleep in bed, as that is when I experience a lot of activity. There have been times that when I try to fall asleep, I can feel a 'presence,' so much so that it feels as if there someone else in the room with me and I have to practically pull back the covers to ensure that I am alone in my room, which I am.

I have never seen them but I always feel their presence, which can be quite heavy, oppressive and, at times, terrifying to me (mind you, I'm a 37 year old man); even at times, I believe, I can hear them, which can be a slight whisper, it seems. I have felt them touch me at times, lightly, or tapping me; I have felt them on my bed, impressions as if someone else has gotten in bed with me (and mind you, I'm not moving at all on my bed); I have even had my feet pulled a few times. And it has not only happened in the place I am currently living, but in other places I have lived as well.

I don't think they mean any harm, but I feel as if they seem to enjoy antagonizing me, a little, because they can sense my fear (and yes, I will not lie, I do become quite afraid at times, and it makes it very difficult for me to get any sleep, or be comfortable enough to sleep). I have tried addressing them, threatening them with the burning of sage, even putting a glass of water next to my bed (an old Caribbean spanish custom). I have been seriously thinking of going to a Santero priest, or something, to find out what is going on or why this is happening to me. Anyone has any thoughts? Would greatly appreciate it.

Brother, if you need help, DON'T go to a priest of santeria (santero)! A best selling book, an autobiography, has been released, written by a man from the bronx, who was in santeria for 25 years, since he was 10... He became the 3rd most powerful high priest of santeria in New York. Every one feared him, because he had so many spirits under his command... This is his hair raising, gut wrenching, mind blowing story!: 'OUT OF THE DEVIL'S COULDRON', by John Ramirez. God bless him for telling us his horrifying experiences about santeria, witchcraft, devil worship, astral travelling, and more! Happy reading! Stay safe!

I am the same as you, I don't see them but I can tell when they're around me, and I can hear them. It's very frightening when you can't see it, but you know it's there... With some of the things people see, I'm glad I don't, haha. I think they like to scare me too, they love the power it gives them, but it's so hard to not be afraid. I've only seen a shadow figure once at the foot of my bed, and I woke up because my feet were seriously freezing, and that's when I rolled over to see a black figure but then it disappeared. The blanket was neatly folded over so my feet were exposed, it was the strangest thing.
I have a friend who thinks ghosts are nonsense because she lives in a very religious home, and I just wish I could show her its real without sounding crazy, but it's so hard.

I know what you mean. The same things happens to me, though the difference is I am awake and it can be at anytime day OR night. It is quiet annoying when you are like this. I wish you the best of luck in your journey. Blessed be.

I have some of the same experiences, I heard breathing, seen figures, felt presences, and something sitting on my bed. This also happens to me when I am half asleep, so I don't think much of it thinking I'm paranoid, but it's real. In my opinion, if you don't think they mean you any harm, that most likely the case. Accept it. Only then will you get over your fear, which they sense. It's helped me to get pets because then your mind replaces the presence with what is seemingly theirs with that of your pets, relieving the discomfort. You could also tell them politely but stearnly to leave you alone, they'll listen.

I believe your a senstive. You say you can't really talk to them but you can feel there presence. This I believe is something most people pick up on after the lose of someone really close or some stressful experience. Its kind of like the poltergeist comming but in this case you must of already had some form of psychic ability and it fount a way out through that. Sensetives can usually tell if a presence is ment on bad or good intentions if you don't feel anything other then the fact they like to bug you then I would not worry about them. There no threat to you other then if they can keep annoying you. Just try to blur them out if you can.

Hope this helps in anyway 😊

Religious yet skeptical of 'ghosts and spirits'? What about references of the Holy Ghost, Holy Spirit, exorcisms, etc?

Regardless of what you believe you're now encountering a new reality and experience. What you're going through is called several things, one of which is the catatonic state (hag syndrom and night terrors are other ones I can think of), which isn't always paralasis and fear but some of these other abilities of sensing other entities of various natures around you. This is a state near sleep where (I'll spare you the technical new age details) your body relaxes and opens itself up to different frequencies. When we get up and start moving around it lessens dramatically because we've moved away from delta and back to beta. Totally different brain wave oscillations and other things that make us 'open' or 'closed'.

Our front doors can't keep out 'ghosts' or whatever you want to call them. They don't operate or care about physical laws. The element that keeps them out varies by a dozen factors (the home, you, the people around you, etc.) Talk to your priest as you mentioned as this is what would probably make you the most comfortable.

If that doesn't work, start exploring the internet.

This is a psychic site not a ghost or entity removal site.

Hope this helps.

hi toro,
Sounds scary stuff, but I sort of know what your on about. When I'm in my room I also sometimes get the feeling that someone else is here with me, or something catches the corner of my eye, I look around and nothing is there. Now, when I sleep, I seem to be fine, I sometimes still feel something is in my room but I'm not sure.
I would like to find out if I am physic as I know someone else in my family who slightly is, I get a lot of gut feelings when I concentrate on something, and most of the time it's right. For example if someone picks a number between 1 - 10, and I concentrate and think 6, it's either is 6, or one of the number exactly next to it - it 4 or 5 - strange stuff.
Anyway about your situation I wouldn't have a clue what to do, but have you tried contacting them more? Thats what I'd try to do.
