I have been having paranormal stuff happen to me ever since I moved into my house in 2000. I was ten at the time and I remember seeing weird things when we first moved in, then when I was thirteen I started having dreams where I couldn't move or wake up. These lasted all the way up until I was 18.
When I was fourteen I started seeing figures. One night I heard scratching noises coming from my room. When I checked on it There were scratch marks all over the door post. Recently it has started getting worse whatever it is likes to show itself to me a lot more than usual, which scares the shiat out of me. It has even grabbed me a few times. I recently found out that the lady who owned the house before me was a practitioner of voodoo.
A month ago I went to my room and saw a black figure with no face blocking my way to the room. The figure looked to be as tall as my brother but he was asleep in his room, besides the figure dissipated. I have seen a hooded figure at school and my mother saw the same figure a few days later. I have had moments when I am awake where I can't move and I hear demonic laughing. I have had something I couldn't see crawl up in bed with me.
I have had people pray over me to try to make this thing go away and have tried blessing the house, but they seem to only be a temporary fix.
Any thoughts on what this could be?
Is it some kind of demon or poltergeist or could it be more than one thing?
Would doing paranormal Investigations make this worse, because I have participated in a few.
