Real Ghost Stories

Evil Or Not?


I've always been perceptable to the paranormal even as a kid. I saw things and heard things. My mom always has been too, so I think I got it from her.

I moved to this current house, a small apartment, in July 2004 with my mom, older brother and younger sister. I had just turned 11. And I've had a few things happening to me here since.

I was a scared frigid girl, so I always slept with my door open and the hallway light on. The first time I noticed there was a presence in the house was shortly after we moved in. I had felt something stroke my hair and touch my leg. I didn't mind much since it didn't feel like it was going to hurt me. I don't remember much happening after that, until a year later.

I remember panicking because I saw a man standing in my room. I told my mom but she said there was nothing there. But because I was scared she agreed to stay with me until I fell asleep. Ever since then I have been feeling the presence change into something evil.

Ever since a few years the presence I feel, feels evil. I don't feel it everywhere. When you enter our building, I have to go up 1 staircase to get to my house. Then when you get inside the front door there is a hallway that connects all rooms, except my brother's. It also connects to the living room and the kitchen. I feel the presence mostly in the staircases of the building, in the hallway and in my little sister's room, also sometimes in my own room. The only places I don't feel him at all is in the living room and my brother's room. Every time I feel him it doesn't feel good. I get scared and feel like something is running to me and grabbing for me. It honestly feels like it wants to hurt me. My mom says she feels something in the house too, but she doesn't feel it's evil.

I have a friend that can feel the paranormal, and she says she feels uncomfortable in the hallway. And I can sometimes see it staring in the form of shadows. I will sometimes see a shadow in the hallway just looking at me when I sit on the couch in the living room.

I hope I can get some feedback on whether it can hurt me or not. Should I be scared?

Rook...thanks for posting it. I don't feel comfortable copying and pasting someone else's work without permission... I hope this will help.

I was watching the old "The Real Ghost Busters" cartoon this weekend... One of my fav episodes..."The Boogie man is back." He was concealed, but someone's fear gave him strength to return. Yes, it probably does seem cheezy, but I thought about what I had posted, but how true it relates to many situations in reality... Both spiritually and otherwise.

Hi Iridescent, I go with Rook and there is always a difference between a feel of an entity being evil or bad and our own feeling of fear to conclude it is bad or negative. We should eliminate the possibility. Still I would advise you to cleanse the house as Rook suggested. It works and do it continuously and definitely the peace of mind would follow. The negative entities will be warded off. Try to investigate about the building, property and ask your neighbours if they feel anything like you especially in the stairwells. Keep us posted of any such information and developments.

Regards and respects to you.

You can 'copy and paste' it... Just give me the 'by line'.

However sense you mentioned it I'll post it after my comments...


This started when you were 11 and you are now... How old exactly? (You do not have to answer, but it could help in determining just what may be happening). Do you feel this presence mostly in the 'outside stairwells' or mostly in your Families Apartment?

Are you sure its not your own 'fear' of this presence that makes it feel 'dark/evil' to you? Have you looked into or can you get the history of the property?

You mentioned this...

"Every time I feel him it doesn't feel good. I get scared and feel like something is running to me and grabbing for me."

Again I ask... Are you sure your own fear is not causing you to 'feel' this presence 'rush you'. I ask because this sounds like it may be the beginning of a panic attack.

There are many things that need to be checked before Paranormal can be placed on what is happening to you... Things such as high EMF (Electromagnetic Frequencies) They may be 'high' in the areas you have your experiences and this can contribute to what you are experiencing.

Keep a Journal, Research the Property History and please get the EMF levels checked and keep us posted.

For your piece of mind here is the Cleansing/Shielding Method mentioned...

Recipe for a Home Cleansing/Shielding... (allow for two or 3 days to complete)

Day one: Open all curtains window and doors with screens installed, let fresh air and sunshine into the home. Have all closets, cabinets and other 'dark spaces' open so that as much natural light as possible can enter those spaces. After 2-3 hours take a broom and 'sweep' out each room (this is symbolic and you do not have to really sweep) focus your thoughts on sweeping (pushing) out all negative energies / entities /thoughts. Close home up after completing each room of your home... Please do not forget your garage if you have one. (Optional) Light incense (sandalwood or Dragons-blood works well for me) and let aroma fill the home, and/or play a tape that contains your favorite Church/Positive, Upbeat (songs that give you good thoughts) songs before you begin sweeping.

Day two (or three): Once again open all curtains, windows and doors. Take a White candle (Optional) to the center most point of the home, sit on the floor and place candle in front of you. Light the candle (visualize a white ball of light) and then focus on the flame... Visualize the flame (white light) filled with positive thoughts, energy. (Say a prayer at this time if you so desire... Ask for cleansing positive energy to fill the candles flame/white light). Hold this 'image' in your mind and then visualize the flame (light) slowly expanding outward, visualize it filling the room your in, every corner and 'dark space'. Continue to visualize it's outer edges pushing away (burning away) any and all negative energies/entities out and away from each room in your home. Once you have visualized this flame (light) filling your entire home, picture it expanding to your property lines. Hold this image in your mind for a few moments then visualize 'anchoring' this flame (light) where you are sitting which is the center most point of your home. Once you have done this. Take a deep breath, relax a few moments and then blow out the candle. (If you didn't use a candle just let yourself relax a moment or two.) "

Now you can create a shield for yourself using the 'home shield' technique but instead of focusing on your home visualize the 'flame' simply surrounding you instead of your home... Best time to do this is after a nice shower using a rosemary scented soap (rosemary is good for purification and protection.)

Sometimes it feeds off of your fear and likes to play with your head (spirit/ghost/demon). It appears that this is what it could possibly be doing to you. Don't give in to the fear.

There is a cleansing method by one of the posters on here posted on many stories. Try this within your home.

Rook, hope you don't mind me informing this poster of your cleansing method.
