You can call me Anne, and here's my story. I'm posting this both to contribute to this website which I have to say is admirable in its take on the subject... And also because I need some help.
Ever since I was a little girl (around 10) I have been sensitive to spirits and entities. My first experience, and one that has stayed with me my whole life was waking up to find unidentified entities plaguing doorways. It only happens when there is just enough light to illuminate them but not to much as to camouflage them. They fill all doorways and archways and the only way I'd describe them is moving, humanoid shapes that resemble liquid metal constantly converging into each other. Ever since I first saw them they have been there and they always are. I can't bear to sleep with a door open and need either the door closed or the door to be out of my sight.
From then on I've had encounters with apparitions every now and then, most of them have been harmless and don't bother me. They've never spoken to me or acknowledged me, all that I get is a feeling of their state or intention. Most of them have been sad, confused or lost and are just passing through and trying to find their way. If I get a feeling like that, I just leave them alone and they don't bother me. Throughout my life I have felt three who I got a "bad" feeling from. One of whom felt particularly "evil" but they have still all been ghosts. With all three of these, I raised my voice and commanded them to leave my house, and they all did.
I've also experienced what I would describe as "impish" entities which like to mess with me and those around me by taking things, moving them, etc. People would pass this off as forgetfulness etc. But my husband can attest that before he lived with me this happened sometimes, but being with me it happens with a much higher frequency.
This is where I recount what happened to me last night which I would really like some help with. I couldn't sleep last night, and when I was getting out of bed to go to the bathroom I heard a guttural voice coming from close by. I first thought it was either my or my husband's breathing (he was asleep), mainly because I was having an allergy attack. The voice continued getting closer until it was like it was whispering in my ear. It almost sounded like someone with a gag in their mouth speaking very gutturally and unintelligibly.
It didn't do anything to me in way of physical harm but it has me extremely unnerved. I couldn't feel what its intention was or even what it was e.g. Ghost, demon. All that I got from it was the distinct feeling that it got perverse pleasure from scaring the hell out of me. It had (and has) me so scared because it was hiding its nature and intention from me... And also because when I sternly told it to leave the way I did the others, it didn't. It did eventually leave, but it left a lingering feeling that it would be back.
Being that I am sensitive to these things and have had encounters I know how to cleanse a house and have some knowledge of the paranormal. Cleansing a house usually suffices but I am very unnerved by this entity as I don't know what it is and it didn't respond to my usual authoritative command. Could anyone provide any information or help to help expel this from my home.
As a side note, any information about the things I see in the doorways would be appreciated too. I'm just really curious as to what they are, too.
