In this story I will explain my both my past and a recent haunting that's taken place. Please be patient as I am still learning about my abilities.
In 1998, my parents separated. It was a great thing because my dad was abusive. However, my mom then met a new guy that she would marry and we would be shipped off to California thanks to the USCG.
On a summer-to-fall, can't exactly remember the date, I had a dream. I dreamed I was hiking in a forest of big trees that I had never seen before and that I was hiking with friends I had never met before. I climbed over a fallen tree and scraped my knee. Since I was a kid, I thought it was just a wishful thinking dream. Flash forward two years in 2001-2002 and I was in a special group at my school, living in California. I was hiking in the woods that were full of redwoods - which aren't native in Ohio - and I was hiking with my class and friends. I scraped my knee and IMMEDIATELY the dream came flooding back. I had been there before.
I am ALWAYS having dreams like this.
In about 2004, I was very interested in developing my spirituality. I got tarot cards and tried to channel my spirit guide. Only, I was met by a shadow figure of a man in a hat that made me so terrified that I awoke from my trance in a ball and crying.
Since then I've moved back to Ohio and had a LOT of bad luck -- raped twice, miscarried twice and was homeless briefly.
Then it occurred to me, I am still seeing the fedora donning man in my dreams. I have moved out on my own two years ago and have been having eerie feelings in my apartment. I don't feel like anyone has died here, but I feel like someone is watching me from my wood work. Does that make sense? I have been having ghost dreams regularly in which I am visited by an array of shadow people. I had a friend mention to me that I am probably being haunted by an incubus (?) and that I need to free myself of him.
I only get scared and worried when I see this man. I awake from my dreams feeling restless and my heart pounding. I had this dream yesterday afternoon. I think I am pregnant again and I don't want him hurting my baby.
Anyway, in my dream, I was in my old home in California. I was waiting for my mom and stepdad to come out of their room. When they didn't, I felt the shadow watching me. I walked up stairs and said, "let's go! He's here!" (Right now as I write this there are a lot of noises in the walls. Clicking, poking, pipes running, etc.) I ran down the stairs and he started chasing me, I felt like he was taunting me. I'm scared and I don't know how to combat this invader.
Thanks for listening and thanks for your input!
