My story began so many years ago. From a very young age I could see, talk to and hear ghosts. Only when I was young, I didn't know they were spirits. There are a few I remember very well. They were my friends.
There was a younger woman. She had long, 70's style straight hair. Pretty and friendly. She "lived" at a park near my home in DuPage County IL. There was never a time I would go to the park and she wasn't all of a sudden there. Some spirits, like this one, never came inside my house. There was another spirit/ Demon I don't know. It haunted me from a young age. I am now 36. I live in the south. This is the only house it hasn't followed me to. At least that was what I thought.
Let me first say that I have two sisters. My younger one was also huanted. I only found this out a few years ago. Crazy! We never talked about it. I never told anyone. I was too scared. I asked my sister one day why her son never spends the night at our parent's house. She said she knew there was something evil there. I asked how. She told me that almost on a nightly basis this dark thing came to her some evil huge shadow. I literally leaped across the room and grabbed her by the arms. Although you might think we were both grateful to know we weren't imagining things or that we weren't alone, it had the opposite effect.
We don't know why it never went after my older sister. It was a dark mass. I knew it was coming (somehow) before it was there. A feeling of dread, terror. I would be instantly aware... It would suffocate me. I couldn't move, talk, pressure on my chest. Each time I would be thinking "Is this the time I will die?" My sister saw things differently. She was overwhelmed by a feeling the thing was evil. I think maybe I was so scared, praying for it to stop. Mostly at night this would happen. BUT if it was during the day (this is going to sound so weird) I, again, would know it was coming. I would find a place to sit or lay down, where ever I was in the house. Because I knew what it would do. Besides that dark spirit doors would slam, hard. So hard that you knew right away, "it" had slammed the door. Noises and other things you could probably, logically explain away.
I don't see spirits anymore. I can hear whispers sometimes (one whisper was a warning to run). My hair is played with. Smells that don't belong. I have a daughter who sees, hears and talks to spirits. Some are nice. Some scare her. I can't see them and don't know exactly how to handle it. When she was little I would call them angels. Then she had a horrible experience. We were in the car driving. She was six years old. We were alone. I told her she could talk to me about things she sees and I WOULD believe what she tells me. This still gives me goose bumps; she asked me "Mommy, do you sometimes come in my room during the night with a witch mask on and say things to scare me? I said "No baby, I don't." She flung the seat belt off and jumped in the front seat, clinging to me. Crying, screaming that she didn't want to talk about it. I didn't bother asking if it was a dream. By her reaction, I knew it really happens. She no longer sleeps alone.
There is a man that lives outside. My three year old son also sees him. He makes my son giggle. He says he makes noises like a monkey. My daughter sees him through the windows.
I hope this is all not too confusing... I guess my biggest fear would be this dark thing coming back. I wanted to contact a paranormal group. Once the lights started flickering, I'd hear scratching noises. Things banging in the attic (there's not even one box up there. Could be a large animal getting in?) My husband is afraid to "piss it off." I don't want anything to get worse. I tried to go talk to a psychic/medium. Made the appt. No joke, I got in my car and it wouldn't start. Then tried my husband's, same thing... How in the world can two cars not work? Could be a chance thing, I guess. I did eventually see one. She told me my daughter was powerful. That when she turned twelve, it would really come out. She told me she sees many things she doesn't tell me about. Some are bad and scare her. Heart sinking to say the least how do you protect your child from something you can't see? Ahhh.
My husband tells her ghosts aren't real. Even though he believes what she sees. I completely disagree with this. She still sees things. Why lie to her? She'll think there is something WRONG with her, right? I will hear her say to herself "Ghosts aren't real. Ghosts aren't real. Ghosts aren't real." I know she is seeing something. Why else would she repeat this to herself out of the blue?
Oh, she also sees colours around people. She used to tell at them (rolling her eyes) to go away because she needed to talk to me. Like as if they were too bright.
Today, Oh man, I hate to even write this. She came into the kitchen. Told me the writing (something I was working on in Word) I had on the computer got "messed up." I asked what happened. She told me that she was trying to get the cat off the desk and the cat's paw or something made a (this is 100% true) 666 on my computer screen. I came in the office and sure enough, there it was. Again, this could have BEEN the cat's paw. How, I don't know. I wasn't in the room. No 5 or 7...just three sixes.
Nothing seems to ever bother my son. In fact the man outside, who makes him laugh, is all that I know he sees.
Can anyone offer me some advice?
How to help my girl and what to tell her?
How to get rid of the bad spirits?
