My mother was born with a gift\ curse of being able to see both spirts and demons. She is able to differentiate between the two.
My sister and I are both terrified of potentially seeing or hearing anything like that and have made her swear not to tell us when she does. We can however see it on her face when she does so we just pretend its something else. Sometimes I think I see someone out the corner of my eye or in the back of my car, through the rear view mirror but that I can safely say is as a result of shadows and over active imagination.
My experience however was a couple of months ago...
I am a very restless sleeper, I toss and turn and throw the blankets around (will most likely be a cliche when I'm older and married where the husband and wife sleep in seperate beds lol) anyways... I'm not sure exactly when it happened but I thought myself to be awake and staring into the blackness waiting to fall asleep when I looked over to my left and the bed sunk in as if a hand were leaning on the bed. Then I felt a hand stroke my cheek, not cold but more of a pressure. The hand stroked my cheek and moved to my chin, tilting my head slightly back. It then proceeded to put its hand into my mouth, I couldn't breathe but I could close my mouth over it, I opened and close my mouth several times, like a fish would.
It was the weirdest sensastion, I couldn't breathe but I could open and close my mouth, it just felt like someone had blown a forceful wind into my mouth. Or like when your driving with your head out the window and the wind kind of "suffocates" you. I wasn't scared at first but when it wasn't stopping or taking its hand out and I still coulndt breathe I started to panic. I sat bolt upright and called for my mother but was unable to. At this point I could only breathe in, unable to breathe out. Finally I called out for my mother and she came into my room (taking her time, I might ad) as soon as she walked in I was able to breathe again normally.
I then woke up... I was alone in my room and the blankets off my bed. I sat there thinking "what on earth is going on" when my mother walked in. She asked me what was wrong and why I had called her, when she looked to the corner of the ceiling above my bed and asked if I would rather like to sleep in her bed.
I didn't need to be asked twice and lept from my bed and ran to hers. Now, I consider myself to be a mature adult but believe me when I say I felt like a helpless child I was so scared.
My mother however stayed in my room a little longer and came back to her room. I just looked at her, still trying to figure out if I had just experienced something or a dream. She climbed into bed and said I should from now on sleep with a bible next to my bed. I was too scared to ask her anymore and fell asleep.
The next morning I got the courage to ask her and she said she saw the "spirit" when she came into my room. It saw her too and asked her "why are you in my house?" She said she had told it that we had been living there for over 6 years now and that the spirit seems to have passed on. She told me that the spirit said she woke up and I was in her bed.
So that day my mother prayed for the spirit and helped her "cross over", it took me awhile to go back into my room. I'm still scared at night and seem to be tricking myself into feeling like something is still there.
My questions are: 1. Why did she try to suffocate me? 2. Could she have killed me? 3. Does this mean, I too, can now experience Spirits? I truley hope not!
