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.
