My grandma lives in Golden, Colorado. I go there almost all the time, every weekend and most of my summer breaks. I was about 12 at the time of this experience. I had experienced smaller occurences like creaks in the walls and the floors and cold spots in certain places in the house. Now my grandparents house is a very old house, so I just passed it off as that, just being an old house.
Then, one night I had this very scary and vivid dream. I was in my grandmas room next to her dresser looking down at the flame in her holy candle. She is a very religious Catholic woman, so she always has a holy candle lit in her room. I felt so good and so warm as I stood there staring at the candle. I recall the picture on the outside of the candle was The Sacred Heart Of Jesus. I was smiling down at the candle when I just happened to stare out of the doorway to the hall. By the bathroom door across the hall there was a heating vent, and from there I saw a black figure crawl out onto the wall. It had no arms, no legs, no face. It stopped crawling and just stared at me. I screamed for my grandma, and she rushed out from the darkness, held onto me, and started telling me it was going to be okay. Then I woke up.
The next morning I went and told my grandma. She told me how there once had been evil in the house but that she had gotten rid of it a long time ago. Then she told me about this story about my great grandma. It was in the late 70s, early 80's, before I was born. My great grandmother was known to have clairvoyant abilities, and was going to stay the night at my grandparents house. That night, she had to sleep in the bedroom in the basement. She told my grandma that she woke up at 3 in the morning with an uneasy feeling, and then saw a black figure at the head of the bed staring down at her.
Is the evil really gone? Has it come back? I really don't know.
Bacchaegrl, All I know is that my grandma fought it many years ago. I think she just prayed and used holy water and holy candles.
