Haunted House In Witbank

 

I finished nursing training, got married. Me and my husband at that time moved into a house in Witbank. (I say at that time because we were married for seven years then got divorced) We started a family. My son was born.

That house was creepy from the start. My husband is not sensitive for paranormal stuff. He couldn't feel the company I felt. When I walked down the passage I always turned around to see what was following me. Something was following me everywhere in that house and I was scared because this company I felt was very strong. I prayed a lot and I was very scared. Things attacked me at night by pinning me down and chocking me. A male voice called my name out one night it came loud from the foot end of our bed. I jumped over my husband to reach the light. He started to think I'm crazy because he couldn't hear anything and he was comfortable in the house. He was disturbed by nothing at all. I also started to think I'm crazy. I tried to ignore the situation but I couldn't because it was overwhelming me this presence in the house.

My son was born. He couldn't settle at night. He didn't cry but just couldn't sleep. He was awake almost all the time. I nursed him for stomach cramps and everything but something kept him awake. I moved his crib and I realized he was more relaxed on the other side of the room and we could at least sleep for the first time between feeding hours.

My son was two months old at the time we decided to get a watch dog. There were thugs in our yard one night when I got home from work and my husband was still at work. The next day he bought a beautiful Rottweiler male from the SPCA. We named him Blackjack. Blackjack couldn't settle at night either. He would all of a sudden start to bark at something we couldn't see and he would go wild for something in front of him and there would only be an empty space for whatever he is barking. I knew this dog saw something paranormal the way he was acting. I thought to myself, I'm not crazy after all.

One night I was stood in the kitchen busy making coffee for my husband and his friends that were outside working on a car. It was about seven o'clock at night. From where I was busy in the kitchen I could see the dining room and the passage that leads to the rest of the house. All of a sudden I saw him for the first time! He definitely came in from the front door running into the passage very fast as if he's running away for something. He was a thin one with a red long sleeve shirt on. The buttons were loose on the end of the sleeves. He had black tight fit trousers on with black pointer shoes. His hairstyle was short like army style and black. I could only see the back of his head. When I saw that it was mind over matter. I thought it could be a human but realized it's not. I was too scared to go after it. I called for my husband. He went into the house and said I'm crazy there is nobody.

I knew I was not crazy. I saw this thing it was enough for me to realize what I felt in that house is for real. I phoned my dad and he got someone from church to come and bless and cleanse the house. The man from church came and he said to me that there was a demonic force in the bedroom where we slept. The house settled for a while but started again after a view months. We luckily moved from that house. We stayed there for about a year.

Hi Lonelee, don't worry. This house is in ext 8. My husband then worked at Highveld steel and we lived in that house for one year. I think what happened there was to do with the house and not the land. I must say Witbank has a great history of devil worshippers. My father build a new house in Tasbetpark ext 2 in the early 80's and that brand new house was also alive in a weird way maybe I will tell the story someday also. They discovered many places in that area where signs were carved out on trees and remains of slaughter cats was also found in some old gathering places of these worshipers. Our pastor told us he couldn't understand why God took him to Witbank but when he moved into his house he realised that there was signs of this evil worshippers in the house he said that he had to clean and cleanse his new home because he found remains of black cats there. Before the 80's this worshippers was on a big mission there in Witbank. I don't know what happened with them or where they went next but they left evidence of their sacrifices of cats at the places they used for their rituals. I think your fine because you would have experienced some strange stuff if there was something wrong in your house. Take care and have a lovely day. Trix 😉

Hi Soul, thanks man for your reply, you are right what you say. Dogs and children are sensitive to these things. For me it's sometimes scary and sometimes not it depends of what you see. Enjoy your day. Trix 😉

Hi Daz, thanks for your comment, I'm glad I can share experiences with people like you who don't think I'm crazy. It is strange though that some people think you're a mental case when you see something paranormal because they just don't sense it. Have a lovely day. Trix 😉

To actually see a history play out before your eyes is unnerving enough. I would have been afraid too. Kind of blurs reality and daydreams. Places tend to keep certain events that occur in and around them for some reason. Especially if built of or covered with magnetic materials like magnetite or quartz which can resonate sound/light waves. Its very cool how our enviroment responds to our effect on it. 😁

Wow...that was creepy... Babies can sense paranormal beings and as well as dogs... Though dogs don't have the ability to speak they have a great ability to sense the paranormals... So whenever you will hear dogs bark madly at nothing, its to be sure that there was SOMETHING...

I have heard true stories about dogs sensing the paranormals way before humans do... And this ability of dogs saved a lot of people from danger... By the way you were lucky to have sensed the paranormal in your house... Not every person has this kind of ability.

Thank-you very much for sharing your experience.
Hope you never have this kind of negative experience again. Take care. ❤ 😊 ❤

Hi Trix... The good thing here a Ygs and sharing your story with this community is the fact that you are not alone and most people here I'm sure do not think your crazy... As you sub consciously may be doubting some of your experiences... I feel if you could come to terms with the fear factor and that is not easy I know... Then coping with your sensitivity to the spiritual realm may actually make things a bit smoother for you... They are not really out to hurt us as much as what some people think... If we fear enough... It opens up our minds to all sorts or experiences... Good luck best wishes...

Daz.

Thank you, Darkness. Unfortunelately there is no history I could get hold of about that house. It's a pity because I like to get reasons for these kind of happenings but this story will sadly stay unsolved. Enjoy your day and take care. 😉

Another great story Trix, Its amazing how some people do not pick up or sense anything at all, you obviously are very open minded and sensitive to these forces. The house seems to have had some bad history, did you ever find out about previous owners or land history etc?

Thanks for sharing.

Dan
