Was This a Walk-in Attempt?


I am 33y/o and have always had some degree of detecting spirits or having the feeling someone is in the same room, among other experiences of objects moving. However, my most recent experience is new to me and I'm hoping someone can give me an explanation.

A troubled friend of mine recently died unexpectedly at the age of 29. The night before his funeral I slept on his couch which is in the apartment above his aunt and cousins (a house which was built in the 1700's). I could not sleep because of a sense of a presence, but figured it was my friend so I tried not to be afraid.

I finally just started to get sleepy and I felt a strong energy pushing towards my chest area almost like a spirit trying to enter me. But at the same time I felt like my own spirit was pushing it away. The best way to describe what I felt is when two magnets repel each other. When I sat up it stopped and I felt like it was 90 degrees in the room. I remember feeling so hot like I was about to start sweating. The frightened feeling I had made me think it wasn't my friend. However, he always expressed how he admired me and how I was so lucky to have everything I have in life.

Can anyone explain what this could have been?

There is a phenomena that is associated when we are overly tired/sleeping in a new environment--that we get in between being out of body and wake. Most sense it as a presence "trying to get in". It is actually your consciousness getting back into the body.

There is even something called The Old Hag--a phenomenon where people see a dark figure trying to get in (again, themselves). Sleep paralysis is part of this.

You might Goggle these and see if it makes sense.

I am thinking this is either two things. One: Your mind is trying to astro project and I stuggling to get out.
Two: "Spiritual" energy is heavy in that area and your body is aware of it and pushing back.

I've had a ghost walk through me isn't that the same but he hasn't taken over me. It was someone loved one who I haven't met but describe it to the person and the person said that I have just described there husband who I have never met or seen a picture of. I saw him as a spirit but I never felt nothing when he walked into me. I've wrote a story on it.

gwynethangel... To me a walkin attempt is when the spirit is bold enough to rush in "results vary"... Pressure on the chest "again to me" is more of the spirit taking energy... Feeding off of the fear... The medium is right on at least one account... That the spirits are getting near... That's obvious... And if you want to close the aura and provide yourself with a measure of protection... Prayer... Lots of them out there builds up the spirituality and much cheaper than mediums !

I had an experience about a year ago, I moved into a studio fat within a large building, one night while laying on the bed watching TV... I felt this powerful force in front of me and a very loud heartbeat, it was just a matter of seconds, and I seemed to go forward then back, I was really taken aback and told my boyfriend... I didn, t think anything of it it. Over the next few months I developed a really bad cough, like something stuck in my throat, bad headaches, also I became very psychic, I was picking up voices on my mobile phone and faces on my video, lots of people, I was, nt sleeping well and I used to burn up like I was on fire, yet the room would be freezing cold, I could see so much redness in room and it would get heavy and I would get dizzy, I knew something was very wrong, I went to a good medium who pulled this old man from me, she said he made me ill, and the building we lived in was an old hospital and I was living in the incinirator room. The building was possessed by these spirits, and we would be moving out within the week. Well yes I moved out, it became pysically painful for me to stay a night in that place. I stayed at my parents who thought I was going through the change of life! 😆...It was a difficult time, I did feel that someone was helping me and guiding me through this, it has bought on a lot of phenomena which I am trying to understand,i,m concentratng on healing people at the moment... Which does seem to be working.

Shawn, your experience is known to many who are psychics. The psychic world always tries to enter those who are open to it, and Edmund is right : You are lucky to have such a strong spirit yourself (soul, psyche, spirit... Its the same !) otherwise it could have been a frightening matter !
You mentioned that your friend always admired you very much and it could just be that his spirit/psyche/soul would now, that its own person is dead, want your body and
mind as its own ! Since it felt as if two magnets repelled each other, you could see this in terms of your spirit/psyche/soul
pushed your friend's spirit out ! Souls in general don't give up that easily and hopefully your own spirit has enough psychic friends to aid it in staying with you !
I have moved a manuscript called "The Agony of Psychism" onto the internet, free of charge ! You can find it at The search engine I use is You will find MUCH useful information there and could download the whole 800 some pages, or you could just study what there is, but begin at the beginning, otherwise it won't make sense to you ! Also, I am sorry, but the manuscript is not BOOK-EDITED. It is pretty much taken out of my diary !
I hope that this has been of help to you.
Take care and may God bless you !

Shawn the feeling of a spirit entering is not so far off, I've had a similiar ordeal. The thing is that sometimes a spirit can latch on, but it actually is latched on from behind you, shoulder area usually. Though it can put tremendous amounts of pressure on shoulder area, third eye, and chest. The chest feels like it is concaving inward from the pressure, it feels really strong and almost permanant at the time, if I can say that. It does not feel like sharp pain, but rather a strong dull pain that your chest is almost harding from trying to block it out, am I right?

Ironically, sometimes these spirits can be your friends, but are not friendly if that makes sense. They themselves can be damaged, lost, even jealous. Trying to regain a sense of being through someone else. It isn't always pretty, espeically when you know them and you yourself are attached to them. Though sometimes you do not know them and it usually makes it easier.

Best way is to say no and keep on repeating that, and that you only need yourself to be whole.

Shawn - another piece of advice. Listen to others. Judge for yourself. That's important, but it can make you think. Edmund has helped me think.

Thanks Edmund. I tend to agree with you considering it was a bad feeling rather than a good one.
gwynethangel, it sounds like your situation is different. The experience I had was an energy I can't explain and only lasted a couple of seconds(although it seemed longer).

Shawn - I have no idea who or what you felt, but when I feel extra "sensitive," (beyond what I feel is normal sensitive) I do feel something physical, a pressure in my chest. I'm fighting it. I don't want odd experiences. As I've gotten older, a tiny bit, I've learned to relax some. It has not always been easy. To me, it took trust in God and knowing I was protected. I don't know what you sensed. But, I do think you sensed and you are therefore, you are sensitive. It's a struggle. It can take many years to learn, and it's not something to play with ever, but it gets easier.

Hi...i am new to this site, I read this and it is similar to what I am experiencing at the moment... A very annoying pressure on my chest, I have had a lot of phenomena, a medium told me that the spirit/s are getting too close, so it must mean my aura is not closed... Can anyone help?

Shawn... Just a gut feeling... I don't think that it was your friend. I think that you are psychic enough that you would have sensed him. But I think it was a spirit or ghost who sensing you are psychic attempted a "walk in" you will get these attempts once in a while if you are psychic spirits sense it and try to take advantge of it. Your pretty lucky to have such a strong spirit yourself to repel walkins. !
