Dark Figure From Childhood on 2016-07-11

For the past few years I've been getting faint scratch marks all over my body. This wouldn't be too frightening if I had pets or nails but I lack both of these things so it's a bit scary. There are four ghosts in my house but only one of them has followed me for all of my life (my family moves a...

I've always felt that when it comes to seeing spirits and such it might be one of two things. The first idea would be that it's passed down through a families blood line, as I said before my deceased grandmother was said to see spirits as well but I think she thought the spirits more as faires than ghosts and while I don't entirely not believe in faires I've not had to many incidents that I would call 'magical'. But then again no one in my current family can see spirits so there's always a chance that the ability jumped a generation for my family. The second theory of mine is that the ability is something a person develops all on their own; perhaps that beleving in paranormal things at an early age can promote a person to be able to see spirits.

As for the smell of sage I wouldn't say its an awful smell, a bit odd but not awful. Some people add in a a handful of mint to the sage stick to lessen the smell which I did and it smelled decent enough. If you don't want to use sage or can't find a store that sells them near you maybe try sented incense sticks, they tend to smell much better.

I can hardly ever hear spirits, in fact I've only been able to twice in my whole life. Every once and a while I'll see the man in black mouthing words at me but I've never been able to really hear what he's saying. One time my friend lent me her ouija board (a board to communicate with the dead) and after I got the first response to my question 'who are you?' It frightened me so much I ended the session and threw the board in my closet and had my friend come over to take the board back (by the way; never use a oujia board, it's very dangerous and can let other spirits into your home in a worst case scenario) after my friend left I heard a female voice say 'help'. There was one time I slept upstairs in my mothers room when the mans presence was very strong one night. When I woke up I was downstairs on the floor next to the couch with scratches all over my upper lip and coller bone. If your going to smudge your home make sure to also smudge yourself, you just need to waft it around your body. Also I recommend you do this when there's no one else in your house just so you won't look crazy to your family (my brothers still tease me about it)

I should probably also add that the other spirits in my house have been acting up as well lately. The other 3 spirits consist of an older man (an African-American gentleman in his late 40's; he lookes to be from the early 1800s) a girl in her sleeping gown (long brown hair, always looks very hesitant and nervous. In her early 20's. Probably from mid 1800s) and finally the little boy (barely looks 12 and might be from the 1920's) whenever the man in the black coat comes into the room and another spirit is also in the room they all look at him like their pleasantly suprised; when the little boy see's him he goes up to him and just stands next to him. One time I came home from school to find them all in the main room looking at each other and then they turned to look at me. It shocked me so much to see them all in the same room at the same time that I ran outside and went to my neighborhood park. I swang alone for a few minutes (in order to explain this and make sense I was sitting on the very last swing with four other swings next to me) I was all alone in the park staring at the small pond near the slides and when I turned to look to my left I saw all the empty swings wrapped around the metal pipe that the swings hang from. There was no breeze to wrap the swings over the metal pipe and even if there was it wouldn't be strong enough to do that, there was absolutely no one else at the park and even if there was I would've heard and saw anyone.

Have you thought about cleansing your house with sage perhaps? I'm not much of a religious person so I don't tend to pray but when I smudged (it's a Native American practice to help calm spirits) my own home about a year ago the scratches stopped for at least 6 months and he stopped laying with me in my bed as frequently as he had before. When the effects of the sage started to decline and he began to become more appearant in my life once again he didn't seem too angry, just a bit weary. When I ignored him for a day though he reacted extremely violently and left a ton of scratch marks on my wrist to the point where they looked like self inflicted scratches. No one else in my family can see ghosts (although I'm told that my dead grandmother could) last night when I was sitting on the sofa next to my mother I turned to her and saw him resting his hands on her shoulders as he stared at me; when I asked my mother if she felt strange she looked confused and said she felt fine, just a bit cold. Whenever he touches me though I instantly feel the weight of his hands and odd tingling sensations. Later that night we watched Lord of The Rings (God, I'm such a nerd) and when Legolas (AKA Orlando Bloom) came into a scene I told my mother jokingly that Orlando Bloom was my husband (yes, you can laugh at my patheticness) and barely 30 seconds later all the lights flickered violently and I saw him slumped over in a corner near the tv frowning at me. You said that the spirit that follows you can be agressive at times so how do you usually respond when he gets agressive?

I have a situation somewhat similar to this. For the past few years I've been getting faint scratch marks all over my body, this wouldn't be too frightening if I had pets or nails but I lack both of these things so its a bit scary. There's four ghosts in my house but only one of them has followed me for all of my life (My family moves around a lot because we're a military family) I first saw him when I was about 5, I was sitting in front of a large open window in my house as my dad prepared me for school. My dad left for a moment and then the ghost appeared in the window. He had dark curly hair and brown eyes, he might have been latino but I'm not entirely sure. He wore a black coat and looked extremely depressed/slightly curious. He looked relatively young;maybe 18 or so. He disappeared when my dad came back into the room but my dad believed me to some extent when I told him what happened. Ever since then he's followed me every place I've moved to (even when I moved overseas to Germany) as a blurry shadow, always following me just out of reach. People thought I was just an imaginative kid but as I've gotten older people just think I'm flat out insane when I talk to people about it. Over 11 years have gone by and his presence has begun to change from a shadow in the background to a blurry image of himself, staring at me from close distance. I wouldn't mind him so much if he was like every other ghost I've seen, quiet and inquisitive, but at night when I fully turn off the light (I'm deathly afraid of the dark so I only turn off the light when I need to and I always have my night light on) he lies in bed beside me and it scares me so much I have to cry out for one of my siblings to come and help me but as soon as I cry for help his presence disappears. Recently I've gotten scratches on my lips (extremely thin and they heal fast, always on the small part between my upper lip and nose) and on my upper thighs. For the past few months I felt hands groping my shoulders and hips. Usually when I politely but forcefully tell him to back off he does. If you really want to keep this spirit within your life I would recommend talking when you feel its presence and explaining what you feel about it being in your life; you probably won't get an immediate response but the spirit will probably listen to what you have to say. I hope sharing my story and advice will help you, best of luck!
