I rented a room from a woman in central Connecticut for a period of time. The house, which was built in the 30s, had a bad vibe that revealed itself over time. The woman had been married to a man who evidently abused her. I spoke with her current boyfriend who described the man as having an "aura of evil". He also said that her neighbors had described the man as "evil". My landlady did not say much about the dead husband, who apparently had heart problems she had nursed him through. But some of her comments about men in general were revealing.
I am a "super sensitive", quite empathic, and an emotional sponge. I began feeling a real darkness in the house, which had a great deal of clutter. I was often afraid to go downstairs at night when the woman went to visit her boyfriend. When I was in the livingroom I felt someone standing next to me and fled upstairs. The house had an aura of stress and toxicity that others picked up on.
In the basement I found the words "f---" and "blood" spraypainted behind the stairs. I still have no idea what that was all about. I invited my priest to come and bless the house, which he was nice enough to do. Unfortunately the heavy feeling in the house persisted. I often prayed over the house, as it had such a bad and increasingly negative vibe.
The room I stayed in had been my landlady's former bedroom shared with the husband. For a period of a couple of weeks I felt the room growing colder and colder. I was unable to sleep. Finally one night I woke up at around four am - I almost always check the clock when I wake up. I turned over to see a man, lying on his side, staring at me at the far end of the room. He had curly hair and was lying next to the round mirrored table there - all of the furniture in the room was the landlady's.
I screamed bloody murder and flicked on the light. He disappeared.
This is the scariest thing that has ever happened to me and it is entirely true. I have not had a repeat incident. I moved out of the house shortly thereafter.
The capper to all of this is that I asked the boyfriend of my landlady what the ex-husband's hair looked like. He told me it was dark and curly. I believe whatever I saw was either the man's ghost or that somehow I conjured up the darkness that used to live in the house placed there by this abusive man. I am a Christian and feel that somehow my beliefs "called him out", if you will.
