rookdygin's pictureMy background: From my first experience when I was 8 years old (born 1967). I have been fascinated with the Spirit world, I have learned much during my life and if what I know can help others I'll do my best to do so.

1979: 12 years old. Broke ties with 'Church' and kept my Faith in Heavenly Father. Would rather sit under a tree and pray than hear a man tell me what the Good Book says. As time passes become a solo pratictioning Wiccan. Practice for 11 years.

1991: Meet a beautiful woman, Find a Church (hers) that matches my personal belief system so well that it was easy to 'convert'. (I will not say which Church but I am a Priesthood Holder.)

I am Empathic and I have experience with Tarot Cards, Ouija Boards, Candle rituals, Astral projection, Spirit Guides and quite a number of other things. As stated before, I will help if I am able to.

Respectfully,

Rook

Indigo Children (The Truth/Beginning of the 'Fad')

Http://www.indigochild.com/

Slender Man the Truth:

The Slender Man was created on June 10, 2009 on a thread in the Something Awful Internet forum. The thread was a photo shop contest in which users were challenged to edit everyday photographs to appear paranormal. The above mentioned poster contributed two black and white images of groups of children, to which he added a tall, thin spectral figure wearing a black suit. Although previous entries had consisted solely of photographs, these were supplemented with snatches of text - supposedly from witnesses - describing the abductions of the groups of children, and giving the character the name "The Slender Man":

The quote under the first photograph read:

"We didn't want to go, we didn't want to kill them, but its persistent silence and outstretched arms horrified and comforted us at the same time...

-  1983, photographer unknown, presumed dead."

The quote under the second photograph read:

"One of two recovered photographs from the Stirling City Library blaze. Notable for being taken the day which fourteen children vanished and for what is referred to as "The Slender Man". Deformities cited as film defects by officials. Fire at library occurred one week later. Actual photograph confiscated as evidence.

-  1986, photographer: Mary Thomas, missing since June 13th, 1986."

These additions effectively transformed the photographs into a work of fiction and started an internet sensation. Subsequent posters expanded upon the character, adding their own visual or textual contributions, thus expanding and helping to create a complete mythology that people began to believe.

Rook's Cleansing and Shielding Method (as used by myself and many other members of this site)...

Recipe for a Home Cleansing/Shielding... (allow for two or 3 days to complete)

Day one: Open all curtains window and doors with screens installed, let fresh air and sunshine into the home. Have all closets, cabinets and other 'dark spaces' open so that as much natural light as possible can enter those spaces. After 2-3 hours take a broom and 'sweep' out each room (this is symbolic and you do not have to really sweep) focus your thoughts on sweeping (pushing) out all negative energies / entities /thoughts. Close home up after completing each room of your home... Please do not forget your garage if you have one. (Optional) Light incense (sandalwood or Dragons-blood works well for me) and let aroma fill the home, and/or play a tape that contains your favorite Church/Positive, Upbeat (songs that give you good thoughts) songs before you begin sweeping.

Day two (or three): Once again open all curtains, windows and doors. Take a White candle (Optional) to the center most point of the home, sit on the floor and place candle in front of you. Light the candle (visualize a white ball of light) and then focus on the flame... Visualize the flame (white light) filled with positive thoughts, energy. (Say a prayer at this time if you so desire... Ask for cleansing positive energy to fill the candles flame/white light). Hold this 'image' in your mind and then visualize the flame (light) slowly expanding outward, visualize it filling the room your in, every corner and 'dark space'. Continue to visualize it expanding...it's outer edges pushing away (burning away) any and all negative energies/entities out and away from each room in your home. Once you have visualized this flame (light) filling your entire home, picture it expanding to your property lines. Hold this image in your mind for a few moments then visualize 'anchoring' this flame (light) where you are sitting which is the center most point of your home. Once you have done this. Take a deep breath, relax a few moments and then blow out the candle. (If you didn't use a candle just let yourself relax a moment or two.) "

Now you can create a shield for yourself using the 'home shield' technique but instead of focusing on your home visualize the 'flame' simply surrounding you instead of your home... Best time to do this is after a nice shower using a rosemary scented soap (rosemary is good for purification and protection.)

The Begining:

Experience has taught me that we are all connected... Experience has taught me there is a Higher Power... Experience tells me I need to explain it like this so that 'me' a Priesthood Holder in a Christian Based Faith is not contradiciting himself nor his beliefs when addressing issues of 'non-human' entities...

The Basics (what Experience Has Taught Me)

(I was going to Title this 'Life, The Universe and Everything' but Douglas Adams beat me to it.)

This was going to be a long and very detailed version of my personnel beliefs, I even typed it up in Word so I could 'copy and paste' it over, when I realized that I didn't need 'all that'.

However the basics are still the basics and this will help explain stuff from my point of view so here it is.

The Beginning: Empty void, Nothingness pressing in on itself until...

BOOM!...

Energy explodes outward with a 'big bang'.

From this outward expanding Energy an Intelligence is formed. This new intelligence chooses a form for itself and 'realizes' it has the ability to Create things with the unused Energy that forms it. It creates other intelligences (shapes them in the 'form' it has chosen for 'Itself') and they have the 'power' to use the energy that they are a part of and that surrounds them (the energy of the First Inteligence), but they themselves cannot 'create' anything from this energy, only the First may do this.

The First Intelligence then creates 'Heaven, Earth, Water... The 'whole creation story'... As the energy came together to form this new 'physical realm' lesser intelligences are formed with 'attachments' to the new physical things (Earth, Water, Air, Fire...). Now called Elememtals...

Then the First Intelligence creates 'mankind' and shapes it into a 'likeness' of the original form it chose for itself. This new creation is a vessel so that the Intelligences that were called forth from the 'Energy' could experience a 'physical' existence.

In so choosing to experience a physical existence they cross a 'veil', which causes them to 'forget' from whence they came. When the physical body they inhabit 'dies' these Intelligences once again cross the 'veil' to return to the presence of the First Intelligence. All of creation is formed from the energy released by the Great Explosion of Nothingness (As manipulated by the First Intelligence) and as such is a part of us. It influences us and we can influence it. Some Consciously (Psychic's) others Unconsciously, and others nearly not at all. Some 'know' how to control it (Memories from across the veil), others can be taught how, while some could care less nor even believe it's possible. This connection manifests differently from age to age, person to person. Some can Heal, some can 'see the future' and there are those that can speak with 'spirits'.

Ah, there it is...Spirits...these can be those that were formed and are associated with 'nature' (The Fey, Elementals, ect...) or those Intelligences that have come to Earth to experience a Physical body... Which has passed on but haven't crossed the veil to be back with the 'First Intelligence.' (Ghosts for lack of a better word).

I hope this helps people understand where my answers come from. I could go into so much more detail but I'm trying to remain 'Religion Netural' and keep this 'short'. Feel free to ask questions, I'll do my very best to answer them.

Respectfully,

Rook

Advice And Validation on 2016-12-08

All of this started because of a comment I responded to from an experience posted not so long ago... An individual suggested the O/P find a Priesthood Holder from my Church and I found this odd as we Mormons are not normally the first Faith sought out when it comes to the 'paranormal'. The individua...

I was 15 years old when this happened, and this is one experience I'd rather forget... It was September, a Saturday night and I do not remember the date.

First Experience on 2008-10-14

Just me picking nits...

You said...

"Colorado to Texas then drive to the coast and boat from there to UK..."

Were you departing from a Port on the Gulf of Mexico or were you to travel by car to a Port on the East Coast of the US?

A better question might be... Were you simply going to reverse the way you arrived for your visit, if so what Port did you enter and which states did you drive through to get to Colorado?

As far as Emmanual goes...Hummmm...

Is there ANYWAY he could have found out your plans for returning via a Boat rather than flying?

Further more...

"I ventured upstairs with him behind me and checked the room he had seen the person in. On opening the door, there was nothing there as I expected."

What do you mean 'nothing'? Was the room completely empty? Or do you mean there was 'no body' hanging from the ceiling as, you expected? If the room was not 'completely empty' did you check to see if there was something that may have 'caused' it to LOOK like someone was hanging in that room? Another thing... Did you go outside and look at the window to see if you could see what Emmanual was talking about?

Emmanual may have been a 'sensitive' one who can feel or see spirits... AND he may...MAY...have had a 'precognitive vision' concerning your 'ocean voyage'. I say MAY because of two things...

FIRST: The way you describe him telling you not to get on the boat...

"The way he said it really scared me. It was as if he was warning me against some sort of attack he was to take part in."

If he had no way of knowing HOW you were going home why would he sound like a sympathetic terrorist? (ie: (his point of view) I have grown found of you, don't get on that boat... Something bad is going to happen...)

OR

SECOND: This is simply a narrative of... Well fiction. I understand that it says you are a young adult AND that by YGS's terms that age range is pretty 'wide' but To live and work in the UK and own a VACATION Home in Colorado and to travel back and forth via Boat and Car...NICE.

Last thing... Did your friend say 'how' the accident with his boat occurred?

I remain your truly as I sit out here on the fence.

(Hi Tweed 😁)

Charlice,

A few things that should be checked to ensure what you are experiencing is indeed paranormal are...

High EMF throughout the house: Individuals sensitive to EMF often say it makes them feel like they are being watched or followed (You mention things only happen in your home...)

Objects moving: Your profile says you are a teenager... Does this mean 13-14 0r 18-19 (or any age in between)? I ask because the objects moving may...MAY...just be happening because of telekinetic outbursts from your developing mind/body. Especially if you are going through puberty... Or possibly just very strong emotions that you are having 'issues' expressing.

Check the history of the house... Did it always belong to the lady your family bought it from and her family? What happened 'in or around' the home? This may give you clues to who the spirit might be. Remember, rule out everything normal/natural first.

Please feel free to ask any questions you might have.

Respectfully,

Rook

Melda,

Considering I am the individual who placed the up vote my guess is one of two things have happened...

Either

A: Someone tried to give you a second positive vote and hit the wrong arrow (I have managed to do that before)

OR

B: For whatever reason someone really did not like the comment.

OR

C: Someone is 'out to get you'. Not that the Karma Points matter. Good comments stand on their own whether people like them or not.

So, don't sweat the small stuff... 😉

"Well, it's a marvelous night for a moondance
With the stars up above in your eyes
A fantabulous night to make romance
'Neath the cover of October skies
And all the leaves on the trees are falling
To the sound of the breezes that blow
And I'm trying to please to the calling
Of your heart-strings that play soft and low
And all the night's magic seems to whisper and hush
And all the soft moonlight seems to shine in your blush

Can I just have one more moondance with you, my love
Can I just make some more romance with you, my love..."

So these 'visits' started sometime in 2014?

Please start a Journal (or have your sister do so)... Sorry its just that they are an easy way to document what is happening, when it happens and who it happens to. To include weather conditions, the feelings of those who experienced the occurrence AND the general 'feeling' with-in the home.

More details equal better 'trouble shooting'. It may be as simple as 'Great Granddad' is appearing as he last remembers himself looking physically, and as a cancer victim this may be a very scary way for him to appear to a 3/4 year old... Have your sister say something out loud the next time this happens...

'Grandfather, you are scaring your great granddaughter, please stop. We do not mind your visits, but she is scared of what she 'see's or is feeling.'

Another thing... A home cleansing/shielding may help the situation. Positive/Good spirits/entities should be ok but any negative/malevolent spirits will be pushed out... If present activity may increase before cleansing/shielding take effect... Repeat as needed.

I have one posted on my profile, or you can find plenty on the internet. Thanks for sharing.

Mack,

Good ta see you blow off some steam.

I agree with your view on graveyards in general... A couple of exceptions would be something like and individual that was killed instantaneously, and has no idea that their physical body has died. So now they roam where it is buried reaching out to individuals trying to find out what happened to them...

OR

The Family chose to bury an item with their dearly departed... An managed to pick an item the individual was attached to.

I have always found cemeteries quiet and comforting. Some do seem to have a protective spirit/entity of some sort but in my experience that particular spirit/entity has never 'felt' human in origin.

A LARGE Double Decker Bus Turns the corner, its painted early 70's style (Think Muppets Electric Mayham) and the Sound system is Rocking...

"Dark in the city night is a wire
Steam in the subway earth is afire
Do do do do do do do dodo dododo dodo
Woman you want me give me a sign
And catch my breathing even closer behind
Do do do do do do do dodo dododo dodo

In touch with the ground
I'm on the hunt down I'm after you
Smell like I sound I'm lost in a crowd
And I'm hungry like the wolf
Straddle the line in discord and rhyme
I'm on the hunt down I'm after you
Mouth is alive with juices like wine
And I'm hungry like the wolf

Stalked in the forest too close to hide
I'll be upon you by the moonlight side
Do do do do do do do dodo dododo dodo
High blood drumming on your skin it's so tight
You feel my heat I'm just a moment behind
Do do do do do do do dodo dododo dodo"

(Duran Duran - Hungry Like The Wolf)

I tried to 'say something' without 'saying' it when the story with the wolves howling was published... Should have know better... (Oh that would make a great second song... Whitsnake anyone?) I mean 'yes' the sound posted by the OP sounded kind of like a Wolf... But my very first thought when I heard it was a Bird... Something about its 'tone'. So I posted all the information concerning Wolves in Texas... Now this? This is just... Well UNLESS the O/P can provide the Name of the Book and the Author... And the book was not published as a work of Fiction, well then, there is a place for research to begin... But until such a time...

Sorry for joining in late.

Val,

There are those who feel mirror gazing is done better in a small, enclosed space called a Psychomanteum...

Psychomanteum: a small, enclosed area set up with a comfortable chair, dim lighting, and a mirror angled so as not to reflect anything but darkness intended to communicate with spirits of the dead. Sometimes all 4 walls are covered in mirrors as the reflected image represents 'infinity' and some people believe this helps the spirits communicate or at least manifest in the mirrors.

As far as this 'experience' goes...
Witches in Texas? Not so sure about that one... I am a native Texan, I really enjoy my home states paranormal history and the closest I can find to a 'witch' being killed in the state is this 'blurb' from Weird Texas:

"The story of the 'Witches Grave' in the Hunt Cemetery of Liberty Hill, Texas dates back to the 1800's, when it is said that a young black girl (possibly a slave) was accused of witchcraft (and/or possibly horse thievery), and was hung in a tree in or next to a lonely graveyard. Legend has it that she was then buried in the same cemetery, and that her stone was marked with words to the effect of "whoever passes over this grave, shall die as I died." They also say that if you dare to go to the cemetery at night, you will see the girl's body hanging in the tree and hear her cries."

(http://www.weirdus.com/states/texas/cemetery_safari/witches_grave/index.php)

Please note it states this individual was HUNG and it may have actually been for stealing horses and no infants were involved.

One other thing the Liberty Hill Cemetery, where this grave is reported to be, is approx. 199 miles from... "cemetery that was down the street from the fort that we usually go to."

There are other 'reported' Witches Graves scattered across Texas... None of them seem to involve a burning at the stake and many of them are 'modern day' (let's say from the 1960's through today).

Respectfully,

Rook

Gh0stHunter,

I have tried, and tried to just 'roll' with your submissions but aside from what I have mentioned above even at the height of the Witch Hunts in Europe I do not believe there are any reported cases of INFANTS being burned along with their mothers for fear they were a witch as well. This goes doubly for here in the U.S.

I hereby toss a LARGE BS Blankie on this submission. "All Aboard the Miss Demeanor!" Drinks on the upper deck and snacks down below!" This particular submission needs an old fashioned BS Blankie party.

Gh0stHunter,

I have to agree with Jubeele. I got home from work and your re-post worked 😆 so I was able to listen to it with my sons head set (once he started working he saved up for a NICE BOSE headset...) and my very first though when hearing it was that it was a bird call of some type... I am still hunting down which night bird it may have been, but my first though was 'OWL'.

However that does not 'cover' what everyone heard a short time later...

Here is a question (s) about that...

At what time did it begin to sound like multiple animals?

What was the determining factor in the 'guestimation' that there were 6 'wolves'.

In regards to 'calling the police' Fort Phantom Hill is a location my wife and I have planned to visit and I have never seen any 'normal operating hours' posted, at least not on the web site. I understand that the visitors center is only 'open' during certain hours, but isn't the rest of the site pretty much open 24-7? (When you were hunting you seemed to like this spot... Ever see a police officer or park ranger enforcing Park Hours?) If so the only reason for Nathan to not wanting the Cops or maybe The Game Warden/Animal Control involved is the fact he did not want anyone 'making noises' to get caught out. (Just a thought, Remember he 'invited' himself and arrived a wee bit after you and the other 2.)

Another thing that 'gives me pause' and makes me wonder 'what' Nathan may have been up to... Wolves are PACK animals... If one of them gets sick and rabies is a very good example of this, they do not tend to let the sick animal stick around the rest of the pack... Let alone 'hunt as an infected pack'...

So just a few things...

Thanks for sharing.

What I mean to say is the link is not working for me... Could you re-post? Thanks

Couple of things...

Most importantly: Wolves in Texas? Let's see... The most common type in Texas was the Red Wolf... Apparently extinct in the wild by 1980... As well as the 'Texas grey wolf' which was a sub-species of the Common Grey Wolf. The next candidate is the Mexican Grey Wolf, however... The last wolves were recorded in Arizona, New Mexico and in Texas in 1970.

Fort Phantom Hill is in Jones County Texas, near Abilene which is West of Fort Worth.

So unless you were 'stalked' by a pack of Phantom Wolves... Well let's just say I am not sold on the animals you heard as being wolves... Nor that they were 'ghosts'.

Is there a chance they could have been Coyotes?

Additionally, you only HEARD these animals, never 'SAW' them is there a chance that they were actually, physically there?

Do you still have the recordings of the howls from that night, if so could you post a link to them? Would love to hear them.

Respectfully,

Did this happen, BEFORE your submission "The Frightening Unknown", or did it happen later?

It does sound as if 'Michael' may have 'saved' your life... But are you sure your urge to visit this cemetery was prompted by a 'spirit/entity'? Or did you just follow your 'desire' to take pictures in this location and got so 'caught up' you did not realize how much time had passed?

If, IF, If a 'malevolent' spirit was involved perhaps it picked a grave marker ('Michael's') so far away from the parking area 'by choice' and 'Michael' felt your 'distress' and returned just to help you.

Biblio,

Welcome back, sounds as if you have your hands full.

It's nice to hear that 'Jim's' Father is actually helping with what is going on in his life rather than not believing what he is going through.

As far as your Wife's Guardian incorporating some of your shielding into its 'form'...My guess is that it has done this to help your Wife feel comfortable with it. A 'familiar feel' so to speak... Kinda like an 'old t-shirt/flannel shirt that reminds her of you and makes her 'feel' safe while you are gone.

Question: Did she know/have a Guardian BEFORE she met you?

Gh0sthunter,

Sorry its taken me awhile to get back with you...

You "...honestly believe the urge was originally towards the the one full of trees."

So its possible that this individual/spirit/entity that you saw in on the treeless side MAY have simply been there to 'keep you on task/track?'

What I mean is... If the urge was to be on the Tree filled side of this cemetery... And you resisted its possible that 'wherever/whomever' 'prompted' you to go out there was 'miffed' that you chose to go to the wrong side of the road. It is a possibility, that whatever chased you was not malevolent nor 'security' in any way but simply a spirit trying to guide you towards 'something'.

Is that a possibility? Was there something you were researching or maybe just something going on in your life that 'could' have led to this 'urge' to visit a cemetery? (Genealogy, research on another property...anything?)

There are a couple of things in this experience that make me go, hummmm...

You stated...

"...I felt an urge, a craving, to go to a graveyard. There was no second thought about it. The one I was suddenly craving to go to was called the Municipal Cemetary and there were actually 2 of them right across the street from one another. One graveyard had a bunch of trees and the other was treeless. I wanted to go into the treeless one, since the thought of being in a dark cemetery infested with creepy trees was just a terrifying thought to me."

So this 'urge' was strong enough you went to this cemetery, but because the side with tress was creepy you chose to enter the treeless one... Where was your 'urge' pulling you? Or did it 'feel' like it did not matter which side of the cemetery you entered?

The 'man' you saw at a distance... Could he have been 'cupping' his cigarette? If so that may explain why you did not see the 'red "cherry" at the tip of the cigarette. Also, where you 'upwind or downwind' from his location?

After you jumped through the hole in the fence how much time passed before you looked around to see where the man 'was'?

It may very well have been a grounds keeper or security guard that chased you... Without more details on the timing at the end of the chase its hard to say.

KatelynC,

Do the candles need to be a certain color?

Do you need to repeat the statement? If so, how many times?

Do you need to focus on something as you recite the words? If so, what should the visualization be of?

Have YOU ever used this method? If so could you please share your experience here with us?

Based on my experience this COULD be an Incubus... These types of entities (some call them Demons (with good reason), but I will use the word entity.

These types of entities 'replenish' their own energy levels from a certain 'type' of energy... In the case of Incubi it's 'Sexual Energy'. As individuals we give off different types of energy, it's like a fingerprint or snowflake... Very small chance of others having the same thing... And the energy you give off 'when aroused' suits this entities needs. It may not need to resort to 'sex' to meet its requirements it MAY only need what is produced from the 'intimacy' level it has already achieved with you.

This is not a GOOD thing, over time the human side of this type of relationship grows dependent on the Entity and as our bodies change we no longer produce the 'right type' of energy the entity requires and they abandon their 'host'. This leads to... Well the best way to describe it is 'withdrawal' symptoms... Some individuals recover, many do not (I lost a friend because of a Succubus attachment... He 'couldn't live' without her and took his own life).

So my advice is to get rid of it now, before you are dependent on it being around. A cleansing/shielding ritual/prayer may be enough or it may take a full blown banishment to get rid of this entity.

This is however just my opinion, it applies even if this is not an Incubus but some other spirit/entity trying to use 'intimacy/sex' to form an attachment.

Thank you for sharing, please ask any questions you may have.

Pirated version = virus/malware

Me thinks you were a victim of a Hacker... Not the Paranormal...

Considering the laptop never recovered and you turned it in...

Just my opinion though.

Rex-T,

I mean no offence but is it remotely possible that your Father 'punked' your Brother the way he punked you?

You stated this...

"'I'm joining in this time', he announced. I looked at the faces in the room. Bro-P had a stunned look on his face, Bro-A was smiling at dad and dad was grinning at Bro-A. Something was up but I felt secure sitting next to dad so I just stared at the board."

And

"It felt totally different this time, both speed wise and lightness of movement. Dad and Bro-A were working together to tell the story..."

I get the impression that your Father...

A) knew about the board as a gift, but because it was a gift did not outright dispose of it.

B) Was upset at Brother 'P' for using it to mess with you

And

C) was determined to teach Brother 'P' a lesson AND get rid of the unwelcome gift in a single blow.

It doesn't matter if any 'CONTACT' was made, however I do not think there was a spirit involved when your Brothers 're-told' the story of your bully incident... And if there was a spirit involved when you and your brothers used the Board with your Father, well let's just say it makes me curious to know just how much he knew about not only the Board but other 'Paranormal' things and Spirits?

Thanks for sharing... Still not sure if this was a double 'punk' with a lesson attached or a 'punk' on you with corrective action by your Father. Either way thanks for sharing.

Respectfully,

Rook
