Real Psychic Experiences

In My Bed 2011


For the past year or so I have felt a presence in various places. At work (I work in a hotel bar which the hotel is supposed to be haunted anyway) and in the conservatory, bedroom and stairs of my house. I tend to feel this presence around midnight when I'm alone at work and when I arrive home and everybody is in bed.

The feeling is overwhelming, I get cold and start to feel an unreal feeling of fear. As I walk up the stairs I feel something behind me and around me. I've never seen anything or heard anything and I'm petrified to. I will walk up the stairs with my eyes on the floor to avoid seeing anything until I get into my bedroom and into bed.

Once when I were in bed sleeping (totally under the covers which I do), I felt pinned down by something above the covers, it held me down so I couldn't move. This was partly in a dream but when I suddenly woke up, I still felt held down and couldn't move. It was petrifying.

A couple of years ago I did Ouija boards with a friend in his house and it's since then that I've felt these things happening. I wish I'd never done them. I have been brought up as a Christian and do believe in God but I haven't been to church since being a young teenager. I often feel like this presence is trying to bring me fear and discomfort but I try to tell myself that God is also present and is protecting me from evil.

I don't know what to make of my situation. Am I being punished for dabbling with Ouija boards as it is wrong in the eyes of God? Am I being contacted by something that I have tried to make contact with by doing those Ouija boards? Either way it is terrifying and I don't want this to carry on. As I've already said, I wish I'd never done those Ouija boards and would like to feel peace again.

dreamscape...i too feel like I have some kind of bad luck following me. I've felt it ever since I did the ob. I've had depression all my life but only since then have I felt things have got worse, like bad karma. I wonder if I have invited something and this is it's way of making it's presence known. I find the whole thing intriguing if I'm honest but I don't want to explore it to a point of taking too much interest as like I said, I don't want the bad vibes or the bed situation again. The ob we did was a paper made one and not a lot happened to be honest, I felt it moved a little but nothing extreme. I can't remember what happened to it, I think it just got put in the bin and obviously to the bin man. My friend says he's never felt anything in that house that we did the ob in and he lives in alone. The ob was my idea, maybe that's why this is happening to me.

I agree with all the comments about the O.B. I first hand experience the wrath of the O.B. When I was younger. It was introduce to me at first as jus fun and games then it started to get addicting. I sometimes recall on it thinking back because it was such a hectic time in my life, it was all that we talked about or thought about. Almost as if it was calling us to play and this was jus from drawing and trying to mimic the actual O.B. We played it drawn on shoe box card board paper. We never played inside the house for some reason of trying to keep bad spirits away if we ever did encounter one from where we stayed. It defeated the purpose because it was right in front of the door as it later played out. My friend said it was a ritual to burn the paper after we played to close the door, I don't know how true is that but it seemed to work for the moment until one day we encounter a spirit that was so powerful. Moving across this paper O.B with more force then we were used to. He was quite demanding and strong spelling words after words. As we asked it to leave it demanded to keep playing, we asked to quit and all it kept circling was the word NO on the O.B. It got to the point that we jus let go of the O.B object and quit ourselves. When it came time to burn the paper, WE COULDN'T BURN IT FOR NOTHING! And this is paper that we always used b4 and it burned jus fine. We got really scared and threw it over the fence near the apartments. Later on that same night we started to hear things in the kitchen... It was really scary... Like the movies where someones in the kitchen but you don't see anything. It played all night with dishes night after night. It turn on the TV. She and I started arguing and disagreeing and I started having bad nightmares. We moved out not getting along but I always felt this bad a vibe there, for a long time I felt the bad luck or the omen followed me through out my life. Until I started opening my heart and mind to god and picking my life up. So no you are not alone. God doesn't punish, he is a merciful god. You jus need to find your way back to him that's all. Believing doesn't mean that you have to go to church, its as long as you have him in your heart, then you have him next to you.

When I was a teenager I had similar experiences, like there was a presence with me on my bed, "hugging" me from behind. I felt it in my dream and when I awoke was unable to move. Basically, I was told by my mom's friend who used to do exorcisms, to do the following:

At night, before going to sleep, tell the presence to leave me alone, that I did not ask it to visit me, and did not want it around.

This did the trick, it did not come back for many years.

I have since felt the experience one other time. The last time, I was deep in sleep, dreaming, and I sensed with my conscious brain that something was lying on the bed next to me looking at me. I pulled myself out of sleep somehow and in my mind told it in no uncertain terms to GO AWAY! When I opened my eyes there was nothing there, and I felt that it had heeded my warning. This was a few years ago and since then, no problems!

I think that as a young person, especially if you are "sensitive", you may attract lost souls, spirits and the like. You can learn to shut yourself off from them and tell them to go away. You can also use your form of god or higher power to help you but remember that you do have the power to invite or repel them.

Finally, I don't think God is punishing you. I think that the idea of a punitive god is a lot of rubbish. But, I don't use ouija boards, my sense is that they can invite energy that is not always positive. There's enough energy floating around out there as is.

Hope this helps.

Playing with a ouija board is like opening Pandora's box. It's establishing a connection with spirit beings who might be good or bad. Sounds like you've connected with some evil and/or mischievous ones. You need to meditate and do psychic protection. Google for some psychic protection exercises or you can email me if you want (my email address is in my profile).

As for the Ouija board thing, no I don't think God is punishing you, He is trying to tell you something... Your Fear would make you miss the message... As it is said: God works in mysterious ways!

PS: it is not showing them "a better A way" is "inspire them to turn to the Light by showing them A BETTER WAY", and you might end up with a handful of spirit protectors around you that are quite useful!

Everyone has a "daemon" or spirit assigned to them upon Birth. In order to work as a team, one must compromise and show the other a better way of doing and seeing things... Since both learn from the other while stuck with each other.

God created djinns to worship Him, and to be in service of Him... So if you have a djinn stuck to you, you have to start living your life in such a manner that would actually inspire the djinn to see a better a way, to make him/her want to serve a greater purpose, or the Light... And then the creature would actually start to behave and give you less hell and more "heaven" as in assisting you in spiritual matters as s/he too grows in the Light with you... If you want to make this "stop" be an inspiration for "demons" or spirits in general, making them see that to Love and approaching life in a different way can be much more peaceful and less painful.

Also always remember and consciously practice "I AM THE LIGHT that will repel any darkness even the darkness in other worldly creatures"... Light would soften their hearts, and make them see themselves more clearly, as a result of them being too ashamed to carry on with their wicked ways... If they can really see how foolish they are, they would stop being so "evil" making themselves and others more miserable.

To show them how they look - imagine a mirror around yourself as the "Light"... I did it once with a spirit who "pestered me" and its eyes turned from coarse to tears, it fell to its knees and cried with its head between its hands sobbing... And it was like it couldn't handle to be "naked", to be found out, its weaknesses revealed... They just want Love and Light but sometimes are in denial of what they really need, acting like naughty school boys and bullies... Pretending they don't want peace by giving others "hell"... And all that is but a cry for help and compassion... For someone to really see them, pity them and Love them.

I agree that Ouija boards shouldn't be taken lightly, but what I am saying is they are basically just tools.
Um, how should I explain this... Well they're kind of like knives in a way. If used correctly you get good results, but if its misused it can be dangerous. Not trying to scare you or anything just thought I'd explain about what I had said earlier.
Ok so onto the sleep paralysis theory of mine, you didn't feel paralysed. I'm not an expert on this, but I wouldn't rule it out completely... Different things do affect people differently you know. Maybe sometimes the person doesn't feel like they're paralysed. I don't really know. 😕
Anyways besides all that I've said, that's great you found something to help you calm down a bit from the terror 😊. I wish you well through this situation.

Thanks for your comment.:)

I've done a lot of research on both ouija boards and sleep paralysis. You could be right about God not punishing me. However I do believe ouija boards arn't to be taken so lightly, I think if you're using them to contact other beings, it's possible to contact both friendly ghosts and demons.

I wonder about sleep paralysis. Alot of sites I've looked at out-rule it as we toss and turn in our sleep (I know I certainly do.) And I find it strange that I felt it some minutes after I were awake.

It didn't even feel like paralysis if I'm honest, I felt something pushing down on my from above. I felt I would have been able to get up and out of bed if it wern't for this pressure down on me.

I have a cross I wear round my neck sometimes and I wore that last night. I felt a lot at ease, like I wasn't scared.

I highly doubt that you are being punished by God for using a Ouija board. Ouija boards are just items/tools/toys/whatever.
That experience that you had in your bed could be just sleep paralysis (Google it), but if you do think that by using a O.B all those years ago that you unleashed something, you may want to do a house cleansing of some form (even if it's for peace of mind).
Since you're Christian I would suggest maybe sprinkling holy water around the place while reading from a bible. Or if not there are also other methods you can use to cleanse; a few off the top of my head would be burning sage or a smudge stick, salt, crystals, etc. If you have the time you might want to search up some of these methods on the net.
