The events that I am about to tell are spanned over a period of six years. As a kid I was always very keen about ghosts and hauntings. Slowly my interest developed into the occult and my focus is mainly to create protection methods or to create counter attacks against the dark energies. After nearly two years of intensive study and research I still consider my knowledge incomplete and I do not dabble into things that I do not have complete information about.
When I was 11 we moved into a new home, I had a room of my own and I was fairly excited about it. (For many years I was an extreme introvert and liked being alone.) My first strange experience came when I was 13 years old. For about a week, I used to wake up every night around 3 am. I hadn't set any alarm or anything like that. But for some strange reason I was woken up at that time. (I came to know about the relevance of 3am about two years after this experience). With nothing else to do I used to paint or read at that unearthly hour. For two days out of the seven that I had woken, I heard the sound of someone breathing down my neck as if trying to look what I was reading or painting. At that time I thought it was my mind playing tricks on me and ignored it but I constantly felt as if someone was watching me all through that week especially when there was nobody in my room.
After that for years nothing major happened. I did although used to feel unexplained fear sometimes when I stayed up late to work or watched a movie on tv late nights. I am not that kind of a person who gets scared easily and as a kid too I was never afraid of the dark, rather I found the night comforting.
When I was 17 I had developed pretty good extra sensory perception and was successfully able to identify negative energies in people and places. Ironically, I couldn't sense anything like that in my room. My best friend and my favorite cousin are pretty good with this too and they both told me about a dark, suffocating feeling that they sometimes felt. They said it was gloomy. Then with a mission to brighten my room I started extensive meditation and prayers in my room. My room feels alright now but during those days I felt great unease at night and had a real trouble staying up in the dark. Many a times I felt a presence in my room and a very strong feeling that I was being watched. Sometimes the feeling of being watched was exceedingly overwhelming and I had to put a lot of energy to get myself to focus on my wards and to meditate to create a shield. Although it worked at the time I would soon feel the same presence after some nights. About two weeks ago I felt the presence again and it was unusually strong, it made me shiver and almost cry. I ducked under the covers and concentrated hard on my prayers. I do not know if I completed the prayer or if I was able to ward off the entity as I had become unconscious midway.
From the past few days my sister has been sleeping in my room and two nights ago I was woken up from deep sleep by the sound of heavy footsteps. When I opened my eyes I saw a dark male figure bend over my sisters feet and look for something under the covers, maybe under the mattress. I didn't move a muscle and pretended to sleep. When I opened my eyes again it was there but faded as I kept watching.
All the events make no sense to me neither do I feel they are connected. I am pretty sure that the entity has nothing to do with my home. Maybe it has something to do with me but I have never tried to communicate with it and I do not intend to do so.
Help and valuable suggestions would be highly appreciated.
