Two Experiences While Traveling on 2013-05-14

I don't know why I chose not to send the following two experiences or encounters for submission earlier.

Madras Girl Possessed on 2011-02-28

When I was very young, maybe 7 or 8 years old, a peculiar thing has happened in our neighbourhood. We were living in the heart of the city of Madras.

Demon On The Tree Near The Cowshed on 2010-08-18

I was brought up in a metropolitan environment. In this background, we never used to hear about incidents relating to ghosts, demons, devil etc. However, through books and usual stories narrated by my grandmother, I got interested in this field. The incident I would like to narrate had happened when...

Hello Nicole2797, welcome to YGS and thanks for sharing your experiences. If you are not feeling threatened, then there is no need to worry. Perhaps something is making its presence felt. It could be that you can speak to it and say that you acknowledge its presence, in a respectful manner and that you or your siblings should not be startled by its presence. If it doesn't work, then definitely, you can come back to us so that we shall be in a position to suggest something more to cleanse the house. But, now that you said that you didn't feel threatened, I have suggested this.

Please do respond.

Regards and respects to you.

Hi Yee, welcome to YGS. Difficult to say what you saw with your eyes closed. It could be some kind of image that the brain forms sometimes. But with only one experience or sighting like what you described, it is difficult to comment further. It could be the image of the brain, which you saw with your eyes closed or it could be a presence. But, can't be sure. I am not doubting your experience and it was because of lack of information, I can't go further.

You said that you went and slept with your sister. Did you share your experience with anyone in the family and if so, what was their reaction and answer? Please do respond.

Regards and respects to you.

SDS
Hello everybody. I don't want to be harsh. But, after reading the "story", I feel that it is like a movie scene. Hard to believe. And with O/P deciding not to participate in the discussions, quite hard to discuss or comment further about it.

Regards and respects to everyone.

Hi ForceAwakens81, I also had doubt when I read it the first time like Revajane and AugustaM.

I feel that your granddad is keeping an eye on the family. It is not uncommon that the loved ones visit even after their passing on.

About a year ago, I also had a similar experience just outside my friend's house. My friend, her husband and myself, we all saw an apparition. Want to write about it. I would do sometime, as of late, I have not been visiting the site frequently.

Thanks for sharing ForceAwakens81.

Regards and respects to you.

Hello funeralmass, welcome to YGS and thanks for sharing your experience. Like everyone else, it cannot be a coincidence.

Ruskin, I voted for you and I enjoyed reading your comment.

Funeralmass, I would like to read your other experiences as well. You haven't told about what happened next when you disclosed your ancestor's name was being spelt by the Ouija Board. Hope they have closed it properly.

Still as others have said, don't use Ouija Board, it is not a toy. Even though it is a tool, if we use it without knowing how to handle it, the experiences would not be nice. Please be cautious.

Once again thanks for sharing.

Regards and respects to you and Ruskin.

SDS
Thanks Val and Miracles. I know that those comments were not directed at me Miracles. Still the post was long and as Val said lengthy comments are, at times, irritable. That's why I said. Thanks for the understanding.

Regards and respects to you both.

Dear Mods,

Pardon me for the long post and I felt that what Rook advised me sometime ago, would be beneficial to others. If it is too lengthy and out of context, please delete or edit my comment.

Regards to respects to all you Mods.

Hi Aliviashae, welcome to YGS and thanks for sharing the experience of your friend. Whatever I was going to suggest, my friend and one of the best members of YGS, Rook, has already advised you, in his own inimitable way.

Please do follow his advise. Further, ask your friend to use his Cleansing method, before reopening the Session and after it is closed. Let them cleanse the house properly. Ask your friend to do all the stuff he stated, NOT ALONE, but with someone.

I have told more than one hundred times in this site, please do not use the Ouija Board. Especially if you do not know the rules. I had bad experiences, my friends had their share of experiences, which were not at all good.

Rook has advised me a long time ago as to how to use the Ouija Board, if at all, we intend to use it, as he rightly said that it is a tool.

For the information of all, as bad experiences are being highlighted every now and then by so many of the members of the site, I am posting it. It is the advise given by Rook. Please be benefited if you have to use the Ouija Board.

Thank Rook, as it is really useful.

"Precautions while using Ouija Boards
1st: Ouija is NOT a GAME! Do not treat it as such, nor sit down to use one with an individual who treats it that way. Likewise do not use it with anyone who deliberately wishes to contact 'a demon' or any negative type entity.
2nd: Clear the Board, this can be done any number of ways. Some people repeatedly move the planchette (pointer) back and forth between the yes and the no until it 'feels clean'. I personally have a 1x1 (1 foot by 1 foot) Silver Silk Handkerchief that I use to wipe of the board. As I do so I concentrate my thoughts on 'wiping' the board clean of any negative energies that may be attached to it. I then exit the room and shake the handkerchief off outside the house.
3rd: (Applies only if using candles) Place 2 or 4 candles (or more in EVEN number increments) around the board. Color's represent different things, choose ones that represent Purity, Protection, Safety...ect.
(Here are some good options: Light Blue: Harmony in the Home, Healing, Psychic Awareness and Safe Journey. Brown: Earth, Concentration, Overcoming Uncertainty, Steadiness. White: Grounding, Protection, Purification, Purity, Spirituality.
(Here is a good link for more...http://www.wiccan-world.com/reference_a_c/candles/candle_colors_meanings.html)

Point is choose colors that will help draw in positive energy / protect you as you use the board.

4th: Cleans and Shield yourself and the others using the board with you. NEVER USE THE BOARD ALONE!

5th: Open the session with a 'Blessing or Prayer' for Protection (Blessing for you Wiccan / Non-Christian Types and a Prayer for the Christians who wish to 'tempt fate').

6th: BE RESPECTFUL of any Spirits you may contact. Do not treat them as a 'know it all' answering machine... Ask them their name, ask them their age... Keep in mind that if a spirit says they are 8/9/10 years old that is how long they have been separated from their physical body... Not the age when they crossed over. Ask them how old they were when they crossed over. If answered this will let you know if you are communicating with an adult/teen/child. After 'getting to know' whom you've contacted then begin asking your questions... Again do not 'play around' and ask silly questions, be respectful and serious. Do not let the Board 'tell you things' without asking any questions... There is a good chance this is a Malevolent Spirit trying to show off (See Step 7).

7th: Close the Board. When you are done, or you feel something 'negative' may have made contact with you tell the spirit Goodbye and move the planchette (pointer) to the word Goodbye. You my feel a 'good spirit' moving it that way anyway... Resistance is an indication of something not so nice attempting to communicate. Once the session is closed again 'Clear the Board' again with however you have decided to 'Clear' your board.

8th: DO NOT USE THE BOARD ALL THE TIME... Even with all these precautions we are HUMAN and can be mislead or make a mistake. Again this is not a 'PARTY GAME' nor a way to 'SHOW OFF' to your friends.

Hi Zaruje, thanks for sharing your experience and for answering the query of lady-glow. I want to ask one more question. You said that you were staying on the 6th floor and your colleagues on 4th floor. Well, the rooms in which you people stayed were one on top of the other, like the pipeline to the rooms would be the same. Just asked. But, really spooky.

Regards and respects you.

Hi Samshay, I want to put this experience, rather experiences, of mine to you. I was living in Bharani Colony, Saligramam, Chennai, at House No. 7 Surya Street. The colony itself is quite a small one having hardly about 50 houses and just 3 streets. It is just about 400 metres away from the Main Road, Arcot Road. There is a connecting Road to reach the Main Road. A few family came to one of the houses in the Colony. For the first couple of days, myself, my brothers were perturbed seeing the same person, like what you had experienced. We would have seen one fellow go home and within minutes, we would be seeing the same person coming from the Main Road into the colony.

After a couple of days of confusion, we came to know that they were identical twins, Ram and Lakshman. Unless you quite close and unless you know them for quite some time, it would be difficult to say who is Ram and who is Lakshman.

So, I do feel that your experience could be, because it happened only once, a case of identical twins or look-alike. I don't think that there is anything paranormal about it.

Regards and respects to you.

Hi Anam_1234, as Tweed advised, it is better that Pratiksha consulted a psychiatrist or a psychoanalyst. That would be better. Except that she woke up around 2.30 AM and started laughing, there was nothing untoward happened. Then why you were worried and I don't understand as to how you thought that there was something paranormal about it. Secondly, it is quite difficult to believe that her mother told that somebody or something was bothering her for the past two years and they did nothing about it. Quite strange. Didn't her husband know about this, what can I say, 'abnormal behaviour'?

I do understand and come across that black magic did exist and people were tormented and it is hard to believe that a neighbour might have done black magic on Pratiksha just because she was jealous. Hard to believe.

I don't mean to offend you. But that is my comment when I read the narrative.

Regards and respects to you.

Dear Rook, Handshake is used in our country is used for greeting, consoling, parting or as you said, squeezing of hands in a parental way etc. This has been quite recent, may be that we adopted to British way in the last 60 years or so. Generally, we greet by folding both our hands.

When I first read this write-up, I also felt that someone was trying to say the O/P goodbye or might have manifested to make the O/P feel the presence. Anyway, let us wait for the O/P to reply.

Regards and respects to you Rook.

SDS
Hello Anam_1234, welcome to YGS. I don't think it was trying to harm you or negative. But, I feel that, as lady-glow said, you didn't expect and so you got scared. I also feel that it was trying to make its presence known to you. Did you talk to someone about it? Please do respond and answer what others have asked also.

Regards and respects to you.

Hello Jennilou87, I enjoyed reading your experience. Well, as Val said, if you are quite nervous and feel weird about the presence and if your gut feeling is quite negative, try Rook's Cleansing method. It has helped many and it would definitely help you too.

Inform us any developments.

Regards and respects to you.

SDS
Lady-glow, well made research and it has gone right into the depth of having more than one account in this site. I have a doubt about one more account, who comments more than 95% about this O/P.

Val, your research about Indian Legal service and police department is laudable. I voted for you.

Regards and respects to you both.

SDS
Dear talib, I am an Indian and I have been regular to this site since last several years. Even my write-ups stood rejected. There were some errors in my communication earlier, which the members queried and I have answered. I have been in this field for quite a long time my friend. I have visited many sites and I find that YGS is by far one of the best. I have also commented about many posters, Indians or otherwise and when I am skeptical, I do comment and express my views. I definitely don't think that this site is prejudiced against YGS. I am not a mod and I don't defend any of the posters. But, what I feel I am telling you. Please don't cast aspersions about this site just because some people comment about stories of Indian origin.

I am over 50 years of age and I also know about our Police Department and that doesn't mean that autopsy is not required in the case of suicide of a teenager and that too, when he left a suicide note. I am trained in law too. So let us be honest on certain facts. I don't mean to offend you but I am putting the facts as it is prevalent in our country. Such comments from persons like you would paint as if India is lawless and the fact is that it isn't even though there are some corrupt practices in police department.

Sorry Mods, please do pardon me for my long comment that has got nothing to do with the write-up.

Regards and respects to you and all.

SDS
Hi lady-glow, please do read my opinion about this write-up. I am from India, as you well know.

Regards and respects to you.

SDS
Val, I would address you first. I could understand the feelings my friend. To be frank, I don't think even if the police station is within 2 minutes of distance from where the suicide had taken place, it would have been so easy to finish of the investigation and handover the cadaver to the loved ones. The autopsy need to be done, especially in case of a suicide of a teenager.

Still I would like to say one thing. There are some communities, especially Brahmins, where the cremation is done quite fast. My mother died around 10 a.m. On 24th June,2000, and her body was handed over to us around 1.00 p.m. And no sooner than we brought it home, we creamted her around 4 p.m. After the rituals. But, she was 54 years and was admitted in hospital for quite a few days.

But, in this case, he committed suicide, a teenager and that too after leaving a suicide note, I don't think it would have been that easy for them to handover the letters, suicide note etc., without closing the case. And that too within 5 hours. Quite not possible.

What I feel about this write-up is this. I don't want to offend the O/P. He might have definitely had a dream about his friend's demise, may be suicide. But, I do feel that all other aspects which he stated might have come to his notice latter and not as he has stated.

Again, he said that he was doing his 10th standard in 2014 and he said that he was going to office in November, 2016. Did he discontinue his studies and went for a job?

I am on the fence on this write-up except to the extent that he might have had a dream.

Val, sorry for your loss, my friend.

With Regards and Respects,

SDS
Hello KikiGirl, thanks for sharing. I am reminded of to what had happened years ago, in 1986, at Nilgiris hill station where I was working. That I had narrated in my write-up, "The Mysterious Pillion Rider". Accept my compliments, you have written very well and while reading, I could actually visualise.

To be frank, I would have fainted.

Nice read and I was fascinated by the interesting discussion about"traffic lights" vis-a-vis "Robots".

Regards and respects to you.

SDS
Hello toosexysof, I have a few questions. Did you discuss with your mother after she came back from her work? If so, what was her reaction? Did you happen to have a sighting of that "lady" upstairs? Did you discuss with your neighbours and did you have any feedback, if you had done so?

Please do respond.

Regards and respects to you.
