Scared And Needing Help


My name is Jenna and I live in a country town in NSW. I have always had a interest in the paranormal and when things would go *bang* during the night, I was always excited to find out what it was. But now lately, things have been starting to creep me out. For the past few weeks, when everyone is in bed is when things start to pick up. I've always heard footsteps, tapping and my bedroom light often flickers, but now its getting louder and just creeping me out.

So anyway, I sleep in my bed with my 2 dogs, and my maltese always sleeps on the side of the floor and I sleep on the wall side. But for the past couple of weeks I'll wake up to him sitting up and just staring to then climbing over me to get to the other side and then eventually he'll lay down. So by then I was wide awake and could hear tapping in my room. Then what I thought was my other dog, I could hear moving around and walking on the bags that were in my room (I have recently moved back home and haven't finished unpacking) So I then started calling out to her to hurry up and get back in bed. But I continued to hear moving around in my room. So I rolled over to get out of bed and my foot touched her in my bed: She had been in my bed the whole time. So I freaked out a bit.

The next night I was on the computer, which is in the back room, by myself and I was sitting there when I got poked in my back. Quite hard. I expected to turn around and find my brother or someone behind me... But all there was when I turned around was an empty room... Then again that night I was woken up by tapping and then a loud bang as if something was thrown next to my bed. After that I got an overwhelming feeling of something over the top of me. I was frozen stiff and I could not open my eyes even though I wanted to... Like they were forced shut? I felt sick I was that scared! All of the other nights I have been woken up constantly due to noises.

And then a few nights ago my mum was getting up to go to the bathroom which you have to walk past my bedroom on the way. As she walked out of her room and past mine she heard a sigh. The sound of someone breathing out. Clear as anything. And she said "oh is that you babe?" thinking I was standing at my door... And she put her hand out and touched my door. I was sound asleep in bed. She soon hurried back to bed! The next morning she was frightened and explained all this in shock

I'm pretty sure my family think I'm going insane, they laugh and make fun of me whenever I tell them something. I feel like Í'm always being watched... I even feel it right now as I'm typing this. I never feel alone. So I'm stuck...

I just want to know if someone else ever experiences the same, or am I going insane? I'm not sure what to do, I don't know anyone that could help me work any of this out...

JennaK, I hope it's not too late to offer my advice. I would suggest that you do not use ouja board because the energy is not positive. It would probably be a lot better if you read aloud from the Bible-Psalms always works. You can also do the tried and tested seasalt (pray over it to represent the fire of God) at the corners and windows. And, of course burn white sage (use a saucer so you don't drop fiery Ashes). Smoke the house thorough with the sage and know in your heart that all bad must leave because sage is from nature, which is from God, Who is kicking that nasty out! Put a smile on your face, because God already gave you the victory. Let us know how it works out. And, BTW, I'm certain these things are true and work because I've dealt with these things many years. It's like I'm a pro already. I should start my own

Whenever I tell my mum my paranormal experiences she acts all serious and says, "I think, I think it's time to take you away... TO A MENTAL INSTUTUTION!" and then she laughs and said that I'm just freaking out about nothing, but I wasn't because one time my friend was over, my door handle to my bathroom started moving and squeaking because it always does when some ones opening it, my friend and I freaked out and covered our selves with the blankets, another time was in the middle of the night when I heard someone calling out my name, when I told my mum this I was crying because I was so scared, my mum is a big sceptic and what she did really surprised me! She actually hugged me and said," It's alright, but I think you might have been dreaming" but I know I wasn't dreaming because after that I was wide awake cuddling my cat! 😨

I've had moments like these also. They come and go. What I have noticed is that the feeling/your senses definitely become a lot more aware and therefore it is possible you may just be hearing, feeling and seeing things the more tense you are about it.

I'd really hate to scare you but some of these comments have said that this spirit can't hurt you... I'm sorry but if it can poke... What makes anyone think it can't push one off a balcony? What makes them think it can't trip one up down the stairs?

The moments I've had like this have all come and gone for as long as I can remember, therefore I don't even know if it has gone or if it's a different spirit every time, that is, as Rook says, if it isn't any natural cause in the first place.

I really hope this all works out for you, if it's anything like my experience, it will leave you alone. I personally never spoke to spirits unless they began scaring me by appearing in my vision when I was alone in the house. I broke down in tears and screamed for it to go away... It did. I think by communicating, you're giving it what it wants. Isn't it the same with dogs? If my dog is behaving badly, I ignore him, he gets bored and goes to lie down or play with his own toy. I'm sure spirits get bored too. I say sit it out. Ignore it unless of course it does decide to get so aggressive that you end up battered and bruised. Again, I really don't think that will happen but please be careful and clever about this.

Keep us updated and let me know if I can help in any way:) Rachie xx

JennaK, I'm sorry I wanted to add. If you feel anything evil in your house-Rooks three day cleansing method will chase out all evil. Unfortunately the human ghosts that are not evil will stay because they are not negative energy. The only way to get rid of them is to try and help them to cross over. Hope this helps. Take care. Trix. ❤

Hi JennaK, does your family feel anything strange in the house? Is this only happening in your bedroom? Sorry for the questions but I wonder if it is attached to the room or you. What happens when you sleep in another room? This sounds like something wants' attention. Try to be brave-I know it's easier said than done but ghosts feed on fear. Although I cleansed my house like Rook taught me to our ghost stayed behind. I know this sounds crazy but it is something that is just here with us and it is harmless. The other night my husband felt company in the bedroom and said out loud:"if you're here play the guitar", and something pulled a string on the guitar. My husband jumped up and said" serious, do it again if you're here" and it did it again. You can also put down some ground rules out loud and claim your room because you stay there now. My dog sleeps next to my bed and I had the same problem, he would get up like something is chasing him out of bed and then I will just say"Stop it we want to sleep, don't disturb my dog" Then it will stop.
Keep us updated, I wish you all the best. Take care. Trix. ❤

while whatever it was leant over you, you wanted to open your eyes but they felt forced shut, and you was sick scared at that point? That sounds like someone who is not asleep anymore. To me. If you knew how scared you were.

Think nyuboom may be right in your case. But that's just my opinion.

Contacting is ok if you believe it's friendly, even then you have to be extra catious. I don't want to scare you I just want toremind you to be careful. Trying to contact it...could... Furter its attachment to you, or it's attempts to. And you can never be sure of what to believe during any, if any response.

If it bothers you I would tell it to leave your room, in the name of jesus christ leave and be gone.

You are not going insane. I have had similar experiences throughout my life. I believe. You got to say get out you don't belong here leave in a demanding voice. Try not to be afraid it can sense this. I know it is hard so I will tell you something my grandmother told me to say when you are frightened by this. The lord is with me the lord will protect me. Say this a few times and believe it. Hope you are ok

i feel you Jenna and iam sorry for what you are going through, I know somehow you feel you are being violated you have no privacy no peace of mind or relaxation, I say that because that's how I feel at times specially at night with the presence watching or hovering over me. I can say. If you are religious recite anything biblical. It will help I always leave the night light on because at times the darkness seems to draw attention to bad spirits. Takecare honey and be strong feel free to ask or share more of you experience. ❤ ❤ ❤

As someone who is interested in the Paranormal you should know that all 'natural causes' need to be ruled out first. You said yourself your interested, so I'll go out on a limb and say you've checked for critters in/under the house and any other possible natural causes for the 'tapping and banging' sounds.

As far as what your mother heard... It is possible that you sighed in your sleep, or maybe one of your dogs made a sighing like sound.

Getting poked in your back...that's harder though there is a chance it may have been a mussel spasm... Not saying it was.

There are a couple of things you can do to attempt communication with any possible spirits that will not open any 'doors' nor ask for an increase in any activity you are experiencing...

Alphabet magnets on the refrigerator... Place them in random order on the door and say something like..."If your here please spell your name, or leave a message with these letters.

Paper and pencil... Place a pad of paper and a pencil on a table in your room. Say something like "If you are here please write your name or leave a message on this paper."

Digital Recorder (or other recording device)...Just before bed, turn it on... Hit record and let it run. When you get up I the morning listen to the recording. You do not have to 'say' anything in this case unless you wish to... Then it's the same as the other methods above.

It definitely sounds like you may have some strange happenings going on lately. I wouldn't be too scared of it though, it seems the more you allow yourself to be freaked out the more prominent it tends to be. I would say just ignore it the best that you can when you hear it. If your dog is acting funny fluff her ears call her a silly puppy and happily drift back to sleep. If it seems as if it is not able to scare you or get your attention it could go away. Now this is only if it is not something stronger. Try this first and keep us updated!

Keep safe! ❤

Ignoring things entirely usually doesn't work. If something is trying to get your attention, ignoring it will just make it more determined to be noticed. It won't hurt you, but good god will it annoy you.
If you really want to try to communicate with it, buy a voice recorder and announce that if someone wants to communicate, it's free to do so. Leave the recorder on and go about your business. Check it later to see if anything was recorded.
I like this method for several reasons. One, indirect communication is always best if you're nervous about the situation. Two, if you're uncertain something is actually going on, an EVP recording is good confirmation of activity. Three, it gives skeptics pause if you provide proof of activity. Evidence like that should make your family take your claims more seriously.

Thanks guys, so much! 😁 Last night was slightly a bit better... I had a decent 4 hours of sleep this time. Does anyone know how to communicate with a spirit or whatever it may be without using a oujia board? I'm so curious but I don't know if I should ask questions or just completely ignore it? Knowing that it has touched me and that creeps me out that it can do physical things... Or would you recommend leaving it be? I just don't want it to become anymore physical... Know the saying curiosity killed the cat? Yeah, well I don't want that to happen!

Try not to talk about it much, that's what whatever is watching you wants. Try telling it to go away. Don't be afraid because it can't hurt you! You gotta tell it to leave in a clear voice when you know it's around.

[at] Jenna I have had the tappin in my room also... I see, hear, feel spirits. But most of the time feel... And no you're not going insane. You are just becoming more aware what's around you. In do time you will learn to deal with it. I have, actually almost every night I feel, and see spirits around me... But anyways I highly suggest you do what supernaturalservices said. I do it whenever I get a chance, and I have a somewhat good nights sleep. Whenever I read it things calm down quite a bit... So good wish from Alaska. (: ohh, and feel free to contact me through email for any questions you have...

you are not going insane. I can recommend some basic protection to stop the nighttime attacks. Saying psalm 91 and 71 out loud out of the king james bible before sleeping helps, because of the energy that is invoked by those psalms and prayers, they have been used for centuries. Also a time tested thing to do is to mix some white vinegar with sea salt and leave them in bowls to evaporate in the rooms with the manifestations. I would not worry. You may just be becoming more aware of what was already there.
