For my birthday, a good friend of mine got me a dreamcatcher. I had no idea the "rules" of dreamcatchers and put it on top of my cat and watched him play with it. Then, I hung it up in my room above my bed.
That night I was woken up about once or twice to something pulling at my ankles, causing a full body jolt feeling. I shrugged off and went to sleep just fine.
I went on vacation for the weekend and the night I returned some very freaky things happened. It started with the same jolting feeling, then it felt as if someone grabbed my wrist and pulled it. It felt as if someone was trying to wake me up. This happened about 6 times before I heard a female voice say, "See me." I kept ignoring the presence until I got up and turned the light on in my room and attempted to sleep again.
Then, something grabbed my ankles again and threw them up almost causing me to fully lift off my bed. Keep in mind I'm under the covers. I turned onto my back and then I felt a great amount of pressure on my chest and couldn't breathe for a few seconds. This was it for me and I crawled into bed with my roommate down the hall. Everything ended and I was able to sleep through the night.
The next day, I moved the dreamcatcher to my kitchen, not knowing where else to put it. When I moved it, I noticed there was a black mark across where the dreamcatcher was. This was not there before.
I've read that some people believe dreamcatchers can act as a portal to evil spirits. I have been approached by spirits before, especially when I was a kid but the past two years I have had paranormal things happen to me. Never has it felt as threatening as this time. Hopefully getting rid of the dreamcatcher will solve this issue.
