Hi everyone. Last year I moved into an apartment with two roommates and my son. The haunting/weird happenings didn't start happening until about maybe halfway into the year. I would feel someone sitting on the edge of my futon bed. One time, my cover was pulled a few inches away from me. Sometimes I like to sleep on the ground with my son. Its comfy pretty normal for us. One time I heard loud jumping in the middle of the room. It stopped, shuffled close to my legs, stood there, and then crossed over my legs onto the side where the wall is. I was extremely scared and couldn't move. I always sleep with my cell next to me, so I was able to call my roommate next door and she came in. As soon as she came in, I was able to move and my son and I slept in her room the rest of the night.
I talked to my coworker about this, and she said to burn some sage and herbs like that. So that night I boiled some thyme, sage, and rosemary, and walked into every room with the pot steaming. It seemed to work, and I didn't have any weird happenings anymore for a while. Months later, I felt someone sit on the end of my futon bed. This freaked me out, so I ignored it. Besides that, I always felt weird being alone, as if eyes were looking at me.
After our year lease was up, my son and I moved into a one bed room duplex. Nothing happened, until a few weeks ago. I felt someone trying to push me aside. I'm guessing they wanted room to sleep on too? But I woke up and pushed back so that I was in the middle of the bed again. It was really weird. I would feel these chills. Then just last night, I almost wanted to cry.
I was sleeping on my side, and I woke up to a feeling of someone pulling the top of my hair. I could feel it hurting, and it was a firm pulling of my hair. At the same time, I felt pressure on my body, and felt chills. It was trying to push me, but my whole body started feeling pressured and numb. I fought so hard to move and open my mouth and eyes. It went on for a few minutes, with me struggling. Then I was able to open one eye, and it was hard keeping it opened. It felt like weight was on my eyelid. I saw something, like a figure.
It was really weird. It looked like nothing was there, yet there was a weird figure. There was a weird yellow goldish outline to this blob figure. I couldn't hold my eyes opened anymore, so I closed it. I was extremely freaked out, and wanted to call my friends. I laid there, wishing to fall back asleep and have this go away. At some point I did, and dreamed this was happening, and I called my friend and told her I needed her help and to come over. I became conscious again, and realized I was dreaming, and that there was still someone pulling my hair and there was still pressure on my body.
I had another dream where I was trying and trying to get a friend to come over, each time only waking up to realize it was only a dream and I couldn't move to get my cell.
Finally, I fell back asleep again, and had this weird dream of a killer in the house, going inside, finding him, and running out ASAP, and meeting my friends at the front of the house. It wasn't my house. It was this small house with a fence and flowers? But I knew the police were coming and we stayed out front to wait for them, or the killer to come out. Then I woke up to my son crying, and realized I was able to move again.
I turned the light on, gave my son a bottle, and just lay there, feeling chilly and sweaty and scared. I left the lights on, and called my friend to talk to her. I just needed to talk to someone about this.
After this, it was harder to fall asleep, and so I lay there, dozing off, and finally decided to get up and head out for the day.
I still can't be calm about this. I will boil some herbs, and my friend told me to tell the thing that I am renting and this is my duplex, and it needs to learn to share, and if not, throw corn around, because in our culture, corn is supposed to attack them?
I don't know anymore. Any advice?
