The Black Figure That Hurts Me


Ive been seeing this black figure since I can remember. When I was little it used to just be a blur, but now it is getting clearer and clearer. I can now see that it never wears clothes, it is very muscular, and it likes to show itself through mirrors. I have been seeing it outside of the mirrors for about 2 years now.

I used to see it only when I would look into a mirror and I would see it standing behind me, or in the corner staring at me. It has hurt me on many occasions. It scratches and claws me when ever I ignore it, talk to it, or tell it to go away. The only time it barely hurts me is when I act scared and it will still scratch me but not as much as when I ignore it, talk to it, or tell it to go away.

It has talked to me before when I asked it why it was here he said that he was here to kill me and that he wouldn't leave until he did.

I have started seeing it everywhere now. I see it in stores, windows, and in school. It had attacked me before in school and I had to go home because I got a giant scratch going down my arm. I know that I'm not the only one that's seen it or been hurt by it. My boyfriend saw it in the mirror once at my house and he has been scatched by it many times. Once my boyfriend got holy water and started yelling and screaming at it and the black thing came and scratched him and threw the holy water across the room. Blessing haven't worked an I have no idea what to do. My mom doesn't believe me that I see this thing even when I get scratched.

Please your ideas would mean so much to me I haven't gotten any help that has worked yet and I'm worried that next time it might not just be a scratch and I'm starting to believe that it could kill me or my boyfriend. It has already caused me to go into a deep depression and I really do think that it could kill me if it wanted to

The TOU clearly states you must be at least 13 to use this site. Since Trinity said she was 11, clearly she did not read even the profile page, so I doubt she had parental permission. Age limits are set for a reason, and as a mod zzs granny must uphold the rules.

Crestal: No, I'm not offended! 😊 But like any rule or law, they're there for a reason. We don't just make this stuff up as we go along. Given some of the content in the stories/comments, this is no place for a child. And personally, if were up to me, the age limit would be 16. It's not up to me, though. And it seems like every time this issue arises, somebody pops in with the "Aw, just let the kid be!" I don't know how old you are or if you have any children or grand children, but if you do, surely you understand the necessity for such a rule. 😊 ❤

Zzz grany No afence, but I really don't think this age thing is a problem. She must of went though a hard time to get her parents to say yes, saught out the age thing etc. So she is just 2 years off, it doesn't really matter, she might not use it a lot. It's not like she would get into trouble, or anything.

Hi.A mirror is pretty much a demons portal from their world to ours. I suggested to take out ALL the mirrors in your house so it can't get in. Honestly I am 11 and have a story to tell as well. I have a ghost. He is visiting me. His name is Mr. Jay he was the previous homeowner and was on drugs and hung himself in our garage. He touched me 3x... My best friend died 3 months ago at 11:01 p.m. She got stuck between the bed frame and the matress, was wraped in a blanket very tight and sufficated and struggled. Her mom is in the navy and was in rhode island at the time and hasnt seen her in a year... The next night I woke up at 11:01 p.m. (the same time she died) the hangers in my closet were rattling. I walked to my closet. She was in there. She was in site for about 5 seconds- then she was gone. I didn't even get a chance to say 'I love you' and yes it was a girl...
Thank you for reading and GOOD LUCK
P.S I study ghost and my moms boyfriend had similar experiences and can relate to both of our storys... 😲 ❤ 😕

well the entity with your might be emotionally attatched to you or someone related to you in some way or its a demon trying to get your attention! I'm no christian but I am a muslim and my mum always says not to put pictures of your loved ones around your so the first thing your see is them because the next thing you will know is that it starts attacking them!...may god bless you and I hope that one day it will just go away with no harm on you or your loved ones! 😁
If it gets worse you will have to call a professional in and deal with it!

I'm sorry if someone's already posted this but iv not had a chance to look through the comments.:) if this thing can physically touch you, you must be able to touch it as well? It's hurting you not just physically but mentally. So next time you see this thing, maybe try attacking it first? Stand strong and If it's trying to hurt you then hurt it back. Scream and shout and kick and don't go down without a fight! Good luck:)

ghostgirl96, I think its best you do call a priest, because the matter could get worse. Also have you tried using a smudge stick to get rid of it? Burning it in the house may make it go.
I hope everything goes ok

LoL, that's a good advice below from someone else. That's not the one I meant to post. You can definitely use it to success. But it's better to have it destroyed, so say this sacred exorcism first:

Be brave. Know that God and Jesus ARE protecting you. So you need not be afraid. But you need to destroy the demon. Good luck!

This is not good at all. It's a very dark demon. It's feeding off your energy so you must get rid of it right now.

Read this and say this out aloud:

If that doesn't destroy it or make it go away, tell it to destroy itself in the name of Jesus. And then tell it to destroy itself in the name of God almighty. And then if those don't do anything, ask Jesus and then God themselves to destroy the evil demon. Then ask Jesus and God for help. Then ask Jesus and God to protect you. One of these has to work along the line. It's better to have it destroyed than to just get rid of it yourself only to have it hurt someone else.

Just know that God and Jesus ARE protecting you while you do this. That will give you a lot of strength and take away any fear. Be brave and self-possessed when you do this. Best of luck!

Greetings I am the Papa Thorn you sound like you have a real problem on your hands. If I may make a few sugestions, Purge the house with sage and holy water that's a good start because it will eliminate negitive energy around your house, lay down a line of salt across your doorways and around your bed it will provide a protective barrier for you, and keep wild roses in the house their strong life energy will help to repel what ever this shadow feind is, also get a symbol of protection in what ever religion you are, and have it blessed by a holyman of that religion. If all else fails bathe in an infusion of holywater wildrose petals and and lavander oils it should make you untouchable by the spirit Please keep me informed if you have further questions for me feel free to contact me by the email on my profile good luck and may the gods bless and keep you

Your freind,
The Puppeteer

I couldn't have said it better than 510mot did. If something is harming you or doing its best to scare you, fight it. Yell at it, rebuke it in your deity's name, call in a priest or pastor, cleanse your home with sage and/or holy water, whatever best fits your personal faith. No matter what method you choose to fight, it must be something that you believe in 100% or it will not work. Do not be afraid and do not feel alone. These are feelings that these types of entities feed off of. If you surround yourself with positive energy, you will drive this thing out.

Ok Get a cross and hang it above your bed and then it might go away. And If that doesn't work try to talk to it again and ask " Why do you want to kill me? I have never done a thing to you!" And if it answers you'll know why! Other then that I have no more ideas but I hope you don't get killed! 😊 ❤ God Bless You! And Play The Same Game As It Smash Your Mirror Then Maybe You Won't See It Anymore And It Will Leave You Alone! Write Me Back ❤

Dear listen to me,
You have a degree of sensitivity. Call it whatever you want, that's what I call it.
You do not need a priest or anyone else. You only need yourself. The first guy is dead on as weird as it sounds it's about energy. You have to learn to use it to protect yourself. Some of us learn it as kids, some of us have to figure it out as adults. I'm telling you only you can fix this. Do the energy work.
Look it up on the internet how to block it it's there.
White light all day all around. You'll get used to it. It will become second nature. You'll live free of that. I would try it if I were you.
Evil is a neccessity without evil we would not know good. It is nothing to fear it's a part of nature. It has always been there and it will always be there. You can choose whether or not to tune into it or not. Once you view it as like a tree to be avoided or something similar it losses it's sting. Believe me. I am not saying you can't be surprised here and there. But for the most part you can keep the evil feeling things away all the time.
Look up some energy work excercises on line. I know I know crazy right? Try it.

I'm in agreement with 510mot. It's like when you are learning how to ride a bike; if you fall you don't just give up, you would get back up, brush yourself off and try again. It's the same thing with what you are dealing with. Do what 510mot asked you to do also, but consider this option also.

I have been learning to do mediation. One thing that I learned to do was create white light to surround you. It is considered pure and no evil can touch you. First, start by creating white light surrounding you. (The easiest way for me would be to consider my spine and to create light going around each bone). Then move the white light and make it bigger so it surrounds the room you are in. Then move that light to other parts of the house and then the entire house. You can move that white as far and as big as you want so that it can include everyone you care about.

It will NOT be easy but you can do it if you concentrate on it. Also, this evil spirit is going to make sure that it won't be easy for you and like 510mot said it is your will power that is going to get you though it.

This is suggestion that you can do if you don't follow any particular faith or in combination with whatever faith you follow. BUT you have to remember that you have to believe and have the will to get rid of it. Your fear is only making it strong. Please don't give in and the people on this site are rooting for you.

I think I speak for many people on this site when I say, we will keep you in your prayers. Keep us posted.

really scary story. I always hesitate to look into mirrors because I always think something is going to pop up behind me out of nowhere. Thanks for making me even more scared. 😁 anyway to the demon/ghost that is attacking you if you are telling the truth about the things it does I would seriously suggest getting help from a medium or priest or mabye even pray to god. Also you siad you were feeling depressed. I know this will sound impossible but ghosts feed of negative energy and bad thoughts so I would suggest to (how do I put this) try to be more happier and less depressed. If you know what I mean. Anyway hope this has helped 😁

Consult a preist as soon as possible. This thing can't be allowed to do this. Even a medium/psychic will help. God bless you.

Wow... 510mot... That was incredible advice. Suggesting priest/esses, is nice, but this seems more like an internal bond. So it's more personal and therefore a third party can only do so much (unless GhostGirl has 100% faith in the priest/ess and their belief system.) But even in that case, it's all about GhostGirl and her inner strength. This entity is definitely feeding off of your fear, so you're the one who is ultimately in control of whether or not to feed this thing. Don't just "ignore it" FOCUS on that which gives you spiritual/emotional strength... That should enhance your vibes away from that thing.

if you can get hold of a good medium or physic this will work

You tell them what's been happening and if you ask them if they could do anything you should mention that you want them to come to your house and they will tell them to go away mentally and that will work trust me I did it!

510mot is absolutely right!
No matter what you do it will fight.
It will continue to tell you the things that bring out the fear in you.
It's living off that fear, and you are feeding it.
Faith in whatever you choose to rid yourself of this thing is what's needed. You have to know that what you do will work. Know it in every fiber of your being. If you don't believe it will work, chances are pretty good it won't.
So it all comes down to your faith in the process you choose to deliver yourself from it's grip. Choose what you feel will work best, put all your faith and trust into that choice. Do not waver, do not falter, do not give in to the same old tricks, do not be surprised at any new ones. Make it fear you. Smile, it'll scare the crap out of it! Take back your life, it has no right to be anywhere near you, ever!
No matter what you decide, your attitude must reflect that decision.

Once you feed a stray, it stays. Whatever abounds in the natural world is invariably sustainance for something else, so why not in the supernatural. It tells you that it will kill you to illicit fear. You are feeding it. It fights harder when challenged because it can't chance losing it's meal ticket. You must re -invest yourself in whatever you have the most faith in. Be it religion,family,science whatever... You must believe and draw strength. But know that it will try to erode that faith or risk "starvation".

In your story, I have never, ever heard of an entity (of this nature) able to pick up a vial of holy water and hurl it across the room. This story can only be of two things... Either you are pulling our chain, or you are in a rather desperate situation... One which may require some type of exorcism. Since your family has not taken you seriously, I would go to the nearest Church, and ask to speak with a Priest.

is there any way that you think you could communicate wiht this poltergiest? If there is not, you may want to, like twilightgirl 90 and swa say, contact a priest immedietly. If that doesn't work call up a paranormal expert asap. Please contact me through my email (ingrid.darin [at] gmail.com) if you will because I think I know what might just stop him.

Iv'e been going through something similar,ghostgirl. Trust me it only gets worse. My condition might be right at the top with yours because there's also a black mist that hurts me. I'm simply terrified because Iv'e been haunted by things while we move around the country. Hope nothing serious happens to you or your family.
Peace be with you,

This evil thing is really an idiot... Look Mr ghost (in case its behind you) please don't disturb her like this. Why do you do this to her? She hasn't done you any harm. Please go and disturb the one who has actually been disturbing you... She means no harm to you. No one can harm you. So instead of Hurting the innocent try helping them out and I swear you will be stronger than before, because then you will be loved and love is another sigh of strength. In case Mr. Ghost cannot read it, You tell it aloud sweety. This MIGHT help ❤
