The Spirit Beside My Bed


I was upstairs in my room, I was trying to sleep, and I kept being woken up by a thing next to my bed. It just stood there, watching me. I wasn't sure what type (male or female) presence it was. I didn't even know the word "presence" at the time. The overwhelming feeling of being watched happened for the next few nights. I told my parents, and they thought that I was crazy. Being the non-believers that they are, they just shrugged it off and didn't do anything for me. I went over to talk to my friend that lives across the street from me, who is also a psychic (at the time, I didn't know that word, and I didn't know what the heck I was experiencing.) I told her everything, and I asked her if she would come and help me. She said she couldn't, or wouldn't, rather, because she doesn't do that kind of thing (by that, I mean go into a house and "fix" the haunting.) So, what she did was she got in contact with one of the former owners of the house. The former owner told me the following:

I felt weird things up in my room. What I didn't know at the time was that my closet door is a vortex, a vortex, for those of you who don't know is a thing that ghosts/spirits use to travel between the Physical and Spirit Worlds.

1. The house was originally a farm house

2. The former owner slept in my room, and she had weird feelings, she didn't like my room at all

3. She had a friend who slept in the room next to mine, and the friend was fine, so when the friend moved out, she moved into that room and she was fine ever since.

I have a ghost in my house that was murdered in the living room of the house when it was a farm house. She has lived here in Spirit Form ever since. Her name is Elise Bedell, and she was part of the family that the street of the house that I am talking about is my story is on: Bedell.

I attempted to bless my room with sage, and when myself and my assistant opened my closet door, I immediately felt something come out of the closet. After it came out of the closet, I could feel the presence watching my every move as we did the blessing. I don't know, still to this day, whether it was a male or female presence, it just felt like it was there. I also saw the spirit that was beside my bed, I didn't know at the time, as I said, whether it was a male or female presence. What I also didn't know at the time, was that the Spirit was related to us. The Spirit was my Great Grandmother who died when I was five.

I have been woken up in the middle of the night by something else, I'm not totally sure what that thing is, but I just feel, again, like it's there, I don't think that it is my Great Grandmother. I'm, as I said, not sure what it is. Can anyone help me?

D.A. Is right about that Some friend and friends should help like you and Others Was she scare or something I'm not trying to be rude just wonder why besides you need to find out why you feel them watch you and like D.A. And other ask you how you know its your grandmother? I too want to know too. Also I wouldn't live in a place no matter which place is with a Past murder. Thank you for the story.

These are very helpful tools that you can use to help yourself with the problem you are facing:

One should definitely check out the Kryahgenetics Egg, a powerful psychic and energy tool that can be used for many purposes. Using it, you can cage ghosts and demons. Or you can put yourself in one of these egg shaped energy bodies to cleanse yourself or use for protection just like a psychic shield.

Since you are clairvoyant, it should be great, since you can see it when you create it, and the demon or ghost too. I wonder if you can see the energy vortex too.

Try this with this Kryahgenetics Egg tool. Put a Kryahgenetics Egg around the vortex, and tell the egg to either deactivate the vortex or to connect it to a purer realm. I suggest that you give the latter instruction.

Read about the Kryahgenetics Egg here:

For some religious suggestions:

Here's a nice one that I know of:

This user gave a useful account and some helpful ideas and suggestions:

It's common for people to pray to Archangel Michael when dealing with dark forces. In the Bible, he is the leader of the forces of good. Here's a dramatic account of help from praying to Archangel Michael. I don't think your situation is so dire to need help from him, or you're dealing with too dark forces, but it can still come useful to you someday:

Okay, this took some SERIOUS rereading and concentration to figure out, but I think I get what the author is saying.

1. They felt a presence beside their bed and later came to find out it was their great grandmother (in which case I'm curious how you came to figure that out).

2. They were uncomfortable with the feeling of the room and from somewhere figured out how to do a sage cleansing that likely didn't work because they didn't believe in it or didn't know what they were doing. Hence, it didn't work, and another (separate) entity was probably standing there laughing at them while they did it.

3. They now feel either that entity or a third, separate entity watching them in bed. This, I believe, is paranoia after the first experience.

To the author: do you have any solid reason to believe that your friend is a psychic? Most psychics aren't afraid to come into contact with a spirit,, that's kind of what they do. If you're psychic you can't turn it off. You never indicated that this spirit tried to hurt you, you just said it made you uneasy, so why would your psychic friend be unwilling to help you? Some friend.

Unfortunately, the details of your story are too obscure for us to really offer you any help. If there's anything else you can give us, then perhaps we can try and help you out, but I really thing a lot of this is paranoia-induced unless you have some reason to believe that all of this that the former owner said and your friend said is true.

you know, I feel the same thing in my room, I believe there is a vortex near my far wall because sometimes I will sit on my bed reading and just find my gaze drifting over there from the book, its creepy because I have heard growling too. 😨

Know what that feels like but if it's your great granmother then she wouldn't hurt you maybe she is just watching over you ask your parents about her 😁

Personaly I think that this is an evil spirit. Dont use the Ouija Board! It can be dangerous! If anything else happens please write about it, because it can help you figure what is happening. Thanks for sharing!

Can you offer a little clarification, please? I'm a little confused how you found out the Spirit hiding within your closet was your Great Grandmother? I'm also confused as to why the spirit of your Great Grandmother was hiding in your closet, and why she was making you feel uneasy? Also, who was your assistant, if not your friend?

Anyway, it's nice to have a friend willing to help you through this, even if they don't "do" hauntings. Finding out the history of the location can help get to the bottom of things, for sure!

Your story is kind of jumbled. So... You still feel this presence at night, or you did feel it? And your friend doesn't do haunted houses? Mmmmm... Your closet door is a vortex. You and your assistant attempted to bless your room, but it sounds like it didn't quite work. Stay calm. Which it sounds you have been doing. Maybe ask your physic friend for more helpful tips, or ask if she knows anyone who could help you with your room, or MOVE to the bedroom where the former owner did to get away from the presence. Pray, tell it to leave you be-sternly, try to find something else on the net. There is something that will help you. There should be more helpful advice coming on this site. Stay strong. Be watchful, see how it goes if thing actually does anything. Good luck.
