I have lived in this home since 1984. Through the years I have seen numerous apparitions including a thin blond woman, a small child (male) and a cat. I have also seen what appears to be brightly lit balls of light. Many visitors have also seen these apparitions as well. Although I am not really frightened by these apparitions, I would prefer not to see them at all.
About a year ago I had surgery on my right rotator cuff and my daughter was spending the night with me, sleeping in my bed in case I needed something. When I awoke the next morning, I found her in the guest room sleeping with her three small boys. When I questioned her, she told me that something kept trying to pull her by her throat out of the bed. She was terribly frightened.
A couple of months later, my son was spending the night in the guest room and complained the next day that something pulled him from the bed and seemed to be taking him all over the room and even out into the hallway. He was so frightened that he told me he'd never spend another night in this house.
Then last March a friend was staying in my guest room because he was down for the Jazz and Heritage Festival. Around two in the morning he burst into my room, turned on the overhead light, and appeared very white and pale. He said something (he called it a force) was attempting to pull him up into it's chest. He was literally terrified and he slept in my room with the overhead light on.
Now, for the past month, I will hear a clicking sound close to my ear at times. One Sunday afternoon I lay down for a nap and I felt a heavy pressure lying on top of my body. I attempted to reach for the bedside lamp but was unable to move. Then I hear a voice in my head say PRAY. I began saying the Lord's Prayer, but the voice coming from me sounded deep and gutteral... Not my voice at all. I continued to pray, and I was finally released.
Then last week I lay down and felt as though something was staring at me. After I turned out the lights, I saw this very tall, black figure walking across my room at the foot of my bed. He was turned sideways to me as he walked across my room. I saw this very clearly. I am now terrified of this thing. I don't think it is a ghost or a poltergeist, but a demon. Out of the blue, I will hear the clicking sounds close to my ear, and I have come to believe the noise is coming from this thing. It almost sounds like fingernails clicking.
I would like to hear from other readers who have experienced this sort of thing and what did they do about it. I am actually living in fear in my own home.
