My family moved into a new house February 23, 2011. Though moving is a stressful experience (of which I am not at all fond), this, I thought, would be good change as we have four kids and needed the space. And while it is a great thing, there are restless spirits/entities that dwell within this place.
The day we bought this house, I was cleaning the upstairs bedrooms, bathroom, and closet. When I came upon the closet outside of what is now my son's room, I got spooked (which doesn't happen often, if at all, unless there is something there to spook me). I felt as if there was an evil presence in the closet, and like it was staring right into me. While this was creepy I didn't think much of it for a while after that. My husband had a friend of his, who is a Preacher, bless the house... That's when they started to make themselves visible.
Now, this is not the first time I have encountered the paranormal. Before the move, I was pregnant with my second child, and while my husband and I were lying on the hide-a-bed in the living room (lights and tv's off), we saw a blue light coming from our daughter's bedroom (like the blue screen on a tv). Seconds later, we watched a white figure that could've been no more than the size of our then 18 month old walk from the entry to the hallway to the kitchen (about 35-45ft) and disappear. That experience, however, was nothing like the experiences I've had in this house.
Encounter #1: It was during late summer/early autumn (not sure as the months were warmer) and rather late at night (or early morning, depending on how late one stays awake). I couldn't sleep, so I decided to fold some laundry. While I was in my daughters' room folding said laundry, I glanced into the living room and watched an adult pair of disembodied legs walk across the doorway (which is rather wide and never had any doors). Everyone in the house, with the exception of myself, was upstairs sleeping. Even the dog was upstairs, he was awake, but would not go anywhere near the steps until the next day. I do not feel that this entity was a threat.
Encounter #2: Once again, it was late at night/early morning. I was washing dishes, when all of a sudden I heard someone (what sounded like an adult male) laughing. When I turned around to see who it was, I saw a dark figure run across my daughters' room and leap as if they were diving onto the bed. By time I walked the 10ft to get to their room, it was gone. Like with the first experience, I do not feel that this particular entity was a threat. But maybe a prankster.
Encounter #3 and 4: One evening a few months ago, I was standing in front of my washing machine attempting to multitask (cook, wash clothes, and mess around on the laptop). When the washer switched cycles, I felt something grab me by the shoulder and pull me away from the washer. A few nights later, the same thing happened, but with more force. Again, this entity is not one that I was threatened by. I call it the protector, as my washer was leaking and I was unaware of the short in the cord. It almost electrocuted my husband the night of encounter #4.
Encounter #5 and 6: These, unlike the previous 4, happened during sleep paralysis. I have suffered dysfunctional sleep paralysis for 17yrs. Unlike most others who suffer sleep paralysis, I have no hallucinations (which is why they call it dysfunctional). I am totally aware of my surroundings and all of my senses are in working order during these episodes, which (to me) make them all the more terrifying. Encounter #5 happened during the month of November. I awoke to find myself in one of several nightly/daily sleep paralysis episodes. I was facing my bedroom doorway and found myself staring at an enormous black figure that was standing in front of my bathroom door (directly across from the upstairs closet that I find so creepy). It seemed to walk across the hall and I snapped out of the episode.
Episode #6 is the one that I, to this day, find puzzling. I mean, I have researched what I saw and have only found one thing similar. But the not knowing what I was dealing with is enough to drive any person mad after having the experience with it that I had. I was, yet again, experiencing one of many sleep paralysis episodes (this one, however, was late morning), but this one was different than the rest. It was not immediately noticeable, making it a bit less terrifying. When I did realize what was going on, my eyes were fixed on the foot of my bed. Out of nowhere, this ball of hair appears (no more than 2in higher than the end of my mattress, which sits on the floor. So the thing was maybe 2ft tall, give or take a couple of inches. Hair was a frizzy, light sandy brownish red). After several seconds of watching this hair-ball seemed to materialize an arm (no hands or fingers, it just came to a point) and pointed to the window. I attempted to glance toward the window, but was physically unable to take my eyes off of this creature. I, then, had a Grand Mal Seizure (this is the first seizure I have ever had. I know of no family history of seizure disorders).
Encounters #5 and 6 are the only two that I see as threatening as one appeared and felt evil and the other caused a physical ailment. #6 is especially frightening when I think back on it as I have no idea as to what I am dealing with. Ever since that experience, I have been physically and psychologically drained. The one thing similar to this creature/entity that I have found is the Keukegen, however I don't believe that this is what I was dealing with.
I have had few, less significant encounters since the last mentioned. They are mostly aural encounters (hearing thuds and people calling my name).
