Ghost Stories from Therissa

Shadowy Black Dog on 2011-08-22

I happened to speak to a friend today and for some reason we came to the topic of spooky stories from our life. It happened quite a long time ago and I haven't remembered it for a while, not that I had completely forgotten, it's just one of these experiences that get locked up in the depths of your ...

I guess it might have been something like that. It wasn't exactly dark when I saw it though; it was just the time before the sun set.

However, back then, I did have to walk down a pretty unlit path almost every evening when going home. I didn't really see anything out of the ordinary on the way though, and I took that path for almost 5 years.

It happened in Kazanlak (hi) and I'm still not fully sure I didn't just imagine/dream it. I mean I'm not sensitive or anything, not at all actually.

I can't guarantee this 100% because it's just something I heard from my grandparent's t neighbour. She was an elderly woman who was a kind of a healer. She didn't do anything grand, just blessed and cleansed people who were really scared or upset by something or had had an accident.

I hung around her place a lot and sometimes she spoke about spiritual stuff. I didn't really listen to her because I wasn't all that interested back then but your story reminded me of a thing I heard from her. She said that when there's a lot of bad emotions, violence, sadness etc. Around a person or a place, the energy radiated might concentrate and become a sort of a ghost, but it's not really a ghost just a gathering of energy. But again there has to be a LOT of it for a long period of time, in the same place. If it continues to gather it can form a phantom that has a distinct heavy presence and if it grows further, eventually be able to slightly influence people's emotions. (For example if you stay for a while with it in the room you might begin to feel disturbed or sad or if you are upset, your feelings might multiply because that's what the thing is seeking and feeding on. But that's again in very late stages.)

I'm not sure that's your case but it seems likely having in mind the history of your place. Maybe you can try observing the corners, especially where two walls and the ceiling meet, it might look like a darker unnatural blob in the shadow, but it's really hard to see and easy to mistaken with an actuall shadow usually. She also said that happy thoughts, incense and pretty much all things positive melt it away with time, and likewise negative emotions might feed it.

Again I haven't researched anything on the topic myself so I might be completely wrong. Still I hope my information was of some help.

As DeviousAngel it seems like sleep paralysis. I have it too so I can tell you its quite normal to sometimes see bright colours and shapes when on the verge of waking up. Especially if you're under stress or went to bed very tired.
