I have been reading stories from this site for quite a while now. I am not really a full believer that there are other entities other than us. I am more into the maybes. Although I can sense and see things others can't perceive I still would deny them thinking they are just figments of my wild imagination.
My first encounter was when I was still around 12 years, this happened in my aunt's house where I grew up. I was asleep one night beside my cousin's wife who was pregnant that time. I suddenly woke up, what I saw almost made me jumped out of bed - a black person (reddish eyeball and whitish teeth are visible a midst the dark complexion) sitting on the edge of my bed. I rubbed my eyes thinking that I probably am just not seeing the right thing but after that he/she or whatever that is, is still on the edge of my bed smiling. I almost freaked out and I said the Lord's Prayer and after which it eventually disappeared.
After that incident, I started to see things others can't and I couldn't justify them. I am already 29 now and I've had dozens of experiences. After those, I started to question myself, are they really there or are they just part of my imagination running wild again? I once tried to inform my co-worker that someone is beside her (yes, I really saw someone beside her) but she freaked out. So whenever I see entities (if they are even real) I keep it to myself. People would ask me and I would just smile. I don't want them to see me as a freak. I want to be normal just like anyone else.
Another experience was in our office sleeping room. I can sense that there is something in that room. Something dark but I couldn't make out what that thing is. I used to be on a graveyard shift and during breaks I would usually take short quick naps. One night I went to the office early, 4 hours before my shift, so I decided to sleep in the sleeping room before I start my shift. After a few hours of sleep, I feel the need to wake up but I can't. My eyes were open but I can't move. I can hear people outside talking but I don't have the will to even move one bit of my body. There is this black smoke pushing my chest and choking me. Again, the Lord's Prayer saved me. But then again, it might have been related to sleep paralysis (maybe). After that, I never went to the sleeping room again. A lot of people had also experienced the same thing as I had (that is why I am in doubt, again). We then called the room, as the nightmare room.
I am in a new office now and I can still see things. Don't you guys think I am just imagining things too much? I mean I do not wish to see things or sense other entities. They just show themselves every time they want. But probably, they aren't real. I just don't know anymore. If anyone here could help me figure out what is going on. I made a note to myself too. As long as those entities don't talk to me, then I know I'm good. I am also scared myself that's the reason why I deny their existence.
