Demon In Plain Sight

 

My grandparents are very religious so this makes this story very scary for those who are also religious. When my dad was younger he lived with his parents in a house (obviously) but this was no ordinary house it was built on an Indian burial ground and a man committed suicide by hanging himself in the front lawn and they cut down that tree and built an addition over it.

Now when my dad was a kid he had experiences from when he was 8 to about 18. One day when no one was home his brother was taking a shower and when he was in the shower he heard the front door open, footsteps across the house and then he saw a shadow under the door walking past and outside into the basement (it was a one level house so you had to go outside to go into the basement) and heard arguing.

When he was done he went outside to see what was going on. No one was there and his other brother David was sitting in his room and saw the recliner started to go back. He sat there and all of a sudden felt heaviness on his chest and he yelled "leave"! The pressure was lifted and what ever was in the room was gone.

Now as for my dad I have two stories: when his girlfriend slept over one night she woke up and needed to use the bathroom so she did but on the way back to the room she saw an old lady, and old man standing right in front of the door to get back into my dad's room but she figured it was his parents and she was tired so she let it go and went back to bed. The next morning she told my dad about what she had seen and he told her that wasn't his parents because obviously at that time they weren't that old.

Now this one is very creepy and probably one people will say it's fake. Well my dad was sleeping one night and there was a loud band so he woke up as soon as he woke up he says what he described as a demon's face hovering over his foot board-he said it was very bright, it lit up his room and the only way he could describe the way it looked he said it had a beast face and he really doesn't like to talk about it to this day. And some of you may say maybe he's making it up.

Well he isn't the only one who has seen it, my grandmother saw the same thing and she is a very religious woman so I take her word for it but what's very chilling about her story is when she saw it said "I want you!" after that she had the house blessed but can that really keep the evil way? No one knows.

The house has since been sold

But there neighbors have said that they have had very similar things happen to them.

These are to me very scary and I heard it right from my dad and my grandparents I hope to one day visit that house and ask the new owners if they had any experiences. I hope to hear from everyone soon about this story thanks for reading

i actually looked for the same thing last night and got the same results I asked my dad about it and he said after they moved out they still owned the house for about 2 years until someone bought it and when they moved out that's when they asked the neighbors about it and they said it was happeneing to them so maybe it is the grounds the houses were built on maybe not tho but it seems there was a reason th guy killed himself I mentioned to you aboutwhen he heard someone walk into the house go outside and to the basement where he heard aguing maybe something went wrong with people and he killed himself I'm not possitive but its a theory I actually couldn't find anything on alice's manor pa which is kind of odd and the ones I did find were in different states so ill have to ask my grand parent about the issue again in hopes of getting some really detailed story's hope to keep hearing from everyone

It is MY belief, bcps, that just as long as you have FAITH that the blessing (or cleansing, which ever ritual was used, you said blessing, though) still holds the power it did when first preformed, it will stay in effect.
On the other hand, if someone invites something back, or calls something to the residence in which a blessing is performed, it makes the pact void. You can call something back just by the remembrance of the incident.
The most important thing for YOU to remember, is that they are no longer living in the home, and they have been released of any responsibility when the Priest blessed the home.
Have the neighbors had odd things happen in their homes AFTER the blessing of your Grandparents home, or was all of that BEFORE? Have you had the opportunity to speak with them after the move?
I did look up Alice's Manor, in Pennsylvania and the search was discouraging. There are MANY with the same name, though most of them are retirement communities, or nursing facilities. NONE of them are on reported Indian Burial Grounds.

Wow that sure was one very scary story. I realy enjoyed reading it. I believe that the spirits in this home where from other people who have lived there. But the house being built on a burial ground sure is creepy. To be honest I'm not surprised that there are spiritrs in that home. Thanks for sharring. I hope to hear from you soon and take care

The random people in the home, I would think to be either former owners, or the ghost of the man who reportedly hung himself in the tree that the addition was built over the site of. What is the most telling of that section is that there was no man seen hanging, but a man and a woman, and phantom footsteps. Good. That points more in the direction of intelligent haunts, and not residual.
The section that has tweaked my curiosity is the demon that your father saw over his bed. In traditional guardianship of a burial mound (you do not state the TYPE of burial ground that this home was supposedly built over, nor the city, so I could not check through my files for accuracy. For that I apologize. If you could give a round about location, I could give you a bit more documentation to offer my thoughts on.) many of the guards wore masks of menacing animals, or creatures. The thought being, if they could scare away the "evil" ones, others would not come and desecrate the sanctity of the land. The evil ones were usually thought to be negative beings stuck here, and bent on opposing The Laws of The Nations. It was thought that THESE types of beings CAUSED good folk to turn to not so good means to achieve a goal (no matter the goal). Not necessarily evil, or even bad, but "not so good."
Is there any way to get a further description from either your Father or Grandmother? I ask as it is not often that a person has sight of a Guardian. And this truly sounds as if you had two people in your family who HAD.
Thank you.
