Stick It To The Man

 

For those who have been following this whole ordeal, this is the same "man" that has been coming and going out of my house and my life. For those who are scratching their heads, feel free to catch up with my previous stories. The "man" has been quiet for some time now and I thought nothing of it until last night, Jan. 7, 2015.

I had a bad day at work and wanted nothing more than to come home and do nothing. I came home, ate, played MTG with my boyfriend and his friend, and then by the time it hit 10pm I was tired. So I got ready for bed and crawled into it. I'm laying in bed trying to fall asleep and at first everything seems fine. My boyfriend's mother is sound asleep in the next room while my boyfriend, his brother, and their friends are in the basement. The only bathrooms I do have are upstairs; however, if the guys need to use it, they just go outside. It's relevant why I told you this, no worries.

As I was saying, I was falling asleep when I heard footsteps in the hallway. I'm thinking it's one of the guys and then continue going to sleep. But the footsteps get louder and louder to the point they're coming from my room, where I am sleeping. Now it is cold outside, almost 12 degrees F. But it was even colder once the footsteps sounded like they were in my room. Now I'm in a big, thick blanket that was keeping me warm and whatever this was, was making that not even work. That bad feeling was rising up inside me, which normally let's me know it's "him" and I can't ignore it anymore. I get the courage to open my eyes and of course, no one is there. I walk out of the room and get a drink, check the thermostat, which is at 70 degrees F and hasn't changed. Should at least be comfortable correct? Nope.

I check my window and it's sealed shut; I check windows near my room, still closed. Ultimately I have decided I just need to go back to sleep. As I am trying to the footsteps come back into my room, and still no one is in my room, and the TV turns on by itself. Now this is puzzling. We have Verizon and with the TV you have to turn the TV on and then some black screen comes up that says you push the menu button to get the feed. Well the feed was on, meaning that whatever just turned the TV on pressed both buttons. Now this cold spot is coming right on my cheek and by now my eyes are sealed shut because I have this feeling that it's going to be right in front of me and I am going to die. [Not really die but you know, I can be a scardy cat.]

Some minutes pass and finally I open my eyes and no one is there, again. I told myself that I just need to sleep and everything will be ok. My plan starts working and after awhile I am in that state where you're falling sleep and you're so close to being asleep but you're not there yet. While in that state I hear the "man" yell in my ear "HEY!" Of course this jolted me awake and I looked to see who was there, no one. I walk downstairs and asked if anyone just yelled and they said no. I wouldn't have heard them regardless but I still wanted to be sure. I told the "man" to knock it off and then it stopped for the night. Really? When I am trying to sleep you need my attention?

Congrats if! The first thing you need to do is invest in a nice, thick cushion for the top of your desk. You'll spend a good bit of time smacking your head on it lol. 😆

Before I go on with my replies I just wanted to say I had reached my daily comment limit on Friday and was secretly agreeing with you all. Wahh.

Valk- Ou yeah true, I've heard of the hawian one and the om. I don't know about the words but they're nice to say when I am angry and want to punch things or people. Thank you!

Elnora- yeah she was, glad she is gone because she was irritating. No matter what I said she just wouldn't accept advice.

Trisk- yes I actually am Wiccan and am familiar with the white/black candle practices. I've been using a white candle recently and the ohm and it is nice and relaxing. I've just been really sick the past few days and haven't felt like doing anything except clean ha. Thanks for the meditation tip, will try!

*muses* I think this chicken dance idea has merit.

Also, you guys have me cracking up over here. Good grief this website is a roller coaster sometimes. Crying at one story one minute, laughing at a thread the next.

When I want to clear my mind, I do mathematical progressions. Or I count from one to one hundred with each number on an outward breath, visualizing the numbers in Japanese kanji and mentally verbalizing them in Spanish. (Counting regularly doesn't work for me anymore.) Sometimes I just close my eyes and look at the crazy colors which seem to appear, those colors eventually turn into shapes, and eventually I see interesting things and my mind starts telling a story which allows me to fall asleep.

My meditation process: Count from 1-10, each number per exhale, until I cannot feel my body any longer. Visualize a dark line tying my tailbone to the center of the earth. Then imagine a white line from the sky coming down through my head, flowing through my arms back to my torso, down through my legs, and up through my toes back to the sky. Then I allow what happens to happen. I used to find myself in very interesting places. But I do not recommend taking a divination potion before doing this... That's a teenage mistake I never repeated.

ifihadyoux, I have allergies to fragrances, as well. There are cleansing methods which involve white candles. You could find an unscented, basic white wax candle, and get in touch with a spiritual adviser who is familiar with cleansing methods that involve simple white candles. There is also such things as black candle cleansings. I've only ever done one white candle cleansing in my life. It was effective, but sadly I do not recall the exact chant, though the process involved burying the candle in the ground. (Wiccan method, and I found it effective.) I suggest finding a spiritual adviser who is experienced with white or black candle cleansings. And if the adviser happens to be Catholic, make it very clear that you cannot use any fragranced votives.

I'm still reading through the two whole pages of comments (!) so I may add another soon after this one.

She was unstable, to say the very least on that matter. I am very happy she is gone. Stability may now resume!

Yeah, the rant was deleted. I don't much care if someone chooses to vent (within reason) in the comments of their own story, but doing it on someone else's story? Nope.

elnora,
Not sure if she was banned or not. I know she wrote some vent on another's story, and BJJ told her it was bad form, but the 'venting' post was gone, and I'm thinking deleted. Then she made a couple of posts as 'guest', so I think she left. Going like she was, I doubt banning was too far off anyway.

elnora - I missed what she said in her rant, but I'm confident she left of her own. Previous members' profiles who have been suspended or banned are still accessible.

Please, someone, tell me that Angel was banned. I saw her account was inactive and since I have never seen someone lie and insult so much in a single comment thread, I am hoping that means she was banned...

elnora, thank you, and I'd be honored if you did. I came up with it when I realized that I was permitting the negativity of others, and situations to affect my own outlook on things. I maybe imagining it, but things have seemed much better since I've started using it.

" Negativity may flow around me, over me, and even under me, but it cannot touch me." I like that. That's quite wonderful. I may use that.

A tad bit late, but for meditation many use a mantra.
It keeps your brain busy and helps shut it up. Plus you can do it anywhere and even silently to help calm you.
A few of the 'old' mantras are:
"Aum" - an oldie but a goodie, you really can't mess this one up too badly. The "Om" is the sacred sound of Hinduism and is said to mean, variously: It Is, Will Be or To Become.
"Om Mani Padme Hum" - this one's from Tibet and it means, roughly, "Hail the Jewel in the Lotus." The jewel in this case is the Buddha of Compassion.
"Namo AmitaBha" - Homage to the Buddha of boundless light.
"I am that I am" - This is one of the Hebrew Torah's most famous lines, and it was God's answer to Moses when Moses asked for his name.
"Ham-Sah" - The Hindu variant, meaning I am THAT.
"I love you, I'm sorry, Please forgive me, Thank You" - Ho'oponopono (Hawaiian) Mantra.

More modern one's are:
"Love is the only miracle there is." - Osho
"Be the change you wish to see in the world." - Gandhi
"Every day in every way I'm getting better and better." - Laura Silva
"I change my thoughts, I change my world." - Norman Vincent Peale

Personally, I use: Negativity may flow around me, over me, and even under me, but it cannot touch me.

And for the record: I'm Taurus, and that's no bull. 😆

I couldn't even -read- BJJ's original without messing it up. My mind kept wanting to throw in crunchy and when I tried it, my tongue took a hike. Lol

LOL! I didn't even get far at all with the tongue twister... Went a little something like this... "throw crunchy in with the crusty croutons!" - The entire day I've had this stupid smile on my face, starring at the screen.

I would never be patient enough to mod. I considered asking once and then decided that I am better off just doing this for pure enjoyment.
