The Djinn


Greetings from Singapore!

This is my first time posting and to be honest, I am superbly glad that there is a website for me to share my experiences with!

I'll just have a short intro' about myself, and I will proceed with the incident!

During my pre-teen all the way to my young adulthood, I was actively involved in Wicca and practiced magick spells on my friends and myself.

Of course it might sound a little weird per se because I'm Asian and Asians have their own fair share of Black Magic practices.

However, ever since I watched " The Craft ", I was very excited and started to dwell deeper into this " safe " occult.

As years went by, I started painting my room black and had a huge Pentagram painted on my floor.

My room was very dark and I only lit candles and had my curtains drawn but instead of a freaky outlook, I felt that my room was safe, as I had my little potted plants that I revived through hours of meditation practices.

Once, I even put a curse on my friend in school for bullying me.

The next week, she fell into a drain and broke her arm.

Of course at that age, I thought it was real.

And I really believed it!

Moving on, as I got really serious in this Magick stuff.

My nights became freakier and I started to feel unsafe when I blow out the candles in my room to go to sleep.

So this one fateful night, I remember meditating for a few hours on my study table that is attached to my window.

My room had only one candle that I placed on a plate in front of me and at that point of time, I worshiped the Fire Goddess Freyja.

After the session, I blew out the candle and tucked into bed.

I fell asleep peacefully.

Barely a few minutes later, I jerked awake violently.

My chest hurt and I was screaming but no sound came out from my throat.

The reason to my screaming?

There was this tall, green scary looking thing with crazy hair (it had no face) right on the right side of my bed, pressing down on my chest.

Cold and just... Eew.

I was paralyzed, I couldn't breathe, I was panicking and I couldn't even move my head to turn away from that thing with long arms.

To make matters worse, it was only half-bodied.

No legs, no nothing below the torso.

I will never ever forget that image in my head.

After what seemed like hours, the green thing disappeared!

Just like that!

Miraculously, I started screaming like there was no tomorrow until my dad barged in my room and told me to wake up cuz I did NOT want to open my eyes in my dark and (now scary) room.

I have to admit that I went berserk and screamed at my dad.

He told me to take my ablution (cleansing one's body in Islam) and calm down.

He made me sit down in his room and told me that he needed me to stop my practicing and focus on being pure and clean.

He told me that what I saw, could be a Djinn (you can google it!) and that Djinn probably wanted to know who I am.

What freaked me out was that my dad told me that my uncle (his younger brother) from Malaysia is a spiritual healer and has mentioned to my dad a couple of times, that there are " things " in my room.

And he refuses to step foot in our house again.

Djinns can be evil, some can be inquisitive and all that.

I myself am not sure.

Up until today.

So ever since that incident, I repainted my wall white, threw all of my magick stuff away, I started praying and believing in my Creator.

Although I do sometimes falter, but that incident stays on my mind until now.

And so because of that, I am afraid of the dark, dark corners, hollow eye sockets and empty rooms.

It has become so bad until I refuse to sleep alone or without one light switched on.

I am currently working and multi-tasking as I type this down.

I will share more of my experiences after this incident.

I believe that these things just don't go away at all, once you are a part of it.

Literally want to read more stories from you. Are you still encountering stuff like that?

First of all stop worshipping false gods. And stop practicing "magic". I know we all have the liberty to choose our religion and faith but it just seems off and annoys me that some author share their experience about this and that without knowing it's their fault why they experiencing it.
Sorry to be rude but I think it's common sense that whenever you dwell longer to the dark side, things will surely happen

Hello aisyah1987,

I'm intrigued by your story. I was wondering, was this a one off paranormal experience or have you seen other apparitions such as the Djinn or others?

I have to agree with the other comments and say that I believe it was sleep paralysis - I have had this before too and I couldn't open my eyes, however I sensed someone standing over me and could hear heavy, angry breathing. So I understand how terrifying it is. However, if it indeed was a Djinn then I would suggest trying to cleanse your room or speak to your uncle and ask him to heal or cleanse your soul (if you believe this would help).

Lastly, I look forwards to reading your future posts!

Best wishes,

Good points, AugustaM. I'm not a student of religious practices, but I think I get what you are saying.

Biblio, I always learn something from you.

I am out of my league here.

The frequent dichotomy that arises in stories of polytheism-evil, darkness, damnation and monotheism-goodness, light, salvation is troubling to me. (Interestingly, it is typically western polytheistic traditions that are tarred with this stick whereas Eastern polytheistic practices that are more commonly practiced today are not typically judged in this way at this time - I blame the influence of the Catholic Church... But that could be bias.) Just because you were experimenting with a polytheistic system does not mean that evil will necessarily be summoned - no more so than pentagrams, black walls and candles are in any way inherently evil. Moreover, simply paying lip service to a monotheistic system (not that I am accusing the OP here) isn't going to bring any sort of peace. It's all about intent and belief - if you belief in the system of your choosing and the intention behind your prayers is good (and you have done your research) - no matter which form of practice you use, you aren't going to summon evil forces.

Greetings, Aisyah.

I've just spent a week prepping my notes on "Beowulf" for next year's World Literature class, so my head is full of these narratives at the moment. The first question I have is "why did you think Freyja is a fire goddess?"

Despite being one of the Vanir (the more "elemental" gods), she also has specific domains of influence over mortals (which are the roles of the Æsir). She has several key responsibilities, such as fertility, Norse shamanism (seiðr,) and ruling over one of the realms of the afterlife: Fólkvangr. (Half of the warriors who die in battle attend her hall, while the other half go to the more-familiar Valhalla, Odin's mead-hall.) Some of these mixed responsibilities may have been due to poets conflating Freyja with Frigg; other mistakes would have arisen when the two tribes of gods negotiated a merger into a single pantheon. There are fire gods in Norse mythology: Hálogi (a fire giant) and his wife Glöð ("gl-UH-th"), who live in Muspelheim, the land of fire. It is the inhabitants of Muspelheim who shall shatter the Bifrost (Rainbow Bridge) signaling Ragnarök, the "twilight of the gods."

Djinn, as many members are aware, are sentient beings of smokeless fire who have free will according to the Qur'an.

I hope, for your sake, that AzraelX and Argette are correct in their suggestion of Sleep Paralysis --which can include horrifying nightmarish images-- to explain your experience. This is the answer that seems most likely to me, too. However, IF this had been a paranormal phenomenon, there's no telling what manner of entity would be summoned by misattributing the responsibilities and characteristics of deities during serious spiritual meditation.

Please, take care when engaging in worship. It is always a good idea to ask questions and to perform research about your religious belief/practice, as they make you an informed participant in your faith.

Take care,

Sounds like it, AzraelX.

The first time sleep paralysis occurs, it freaks you out. Google it for more info, or explore this site a bit, Aisyah.

Although this was all very frightening for you, it sounds as though you now have it all together, even though you are still experiencing some fears.

You are right; it takes time. So go easy on yourself.

Welcome and thanks for posting.

That you were paralyzed and couldn't move could hint at Sleep Paralysis/Night Hag.
