I Think Activity Is Starting Again In My Home


Last night, January 16, 2014, I went into the bathroom to get ready to shower. I turned on the light and air vent and, of course, the door was shut. As I was turning around in the shower the shower curtain was clinging to me a little bit. I didn't think much of it but as I turned my back towards the shower curtain again it was much more than a clinging feeling. My bottom was grabbed! I thought maybe it was my husband. Sometimes he will come in while I'm showering to ask me a question or to flirt. I opened the shower curtain to yell at him and he wasn't there. He hadn't come in the bathroom and the door was still shut.

I continued with my shower and thought maybe I had overreacted. When I got out of the shower my right shoulder was red and scratched! It looked like it had several deep scratch marks and it was puffy, itching and burning. I showed my husband and he found it odd.

I went to bed and my bedroom looks into our bathroom. I saw a faint black shadow reflecting in the bathroom mirror which startled me but, being logical, I thought well maybe it was a reflection from the TV in our room. I kept lying there when a few minutes later I saw a misty white shadow in the doorway of our bathroom. I looked at my husband and said, "Did you see that?" He said, "See what?" He's a huge skeptic so I said, "Nothing. It must have been the reflection of the TV making shadows. It freaked me out." He agreed and we shortly went to sleep.

I awoke in the middle night to hearing voices. I heard a couple of words but couldn't quite make them out. I tried to go back to sleep and then I heard something fall in our room. My first thought was that maybe the alarm clock got knocked off of the end table. My hubby woke up at 6 am and the alarm clock was still in place and so was everything else in our room.

Now I'm wondering if maybe I have an overactive imagination or is there a spirit really bothering me. I guess it's possible for spirit (s) to be attracted or attached to someone. Do you think this could be the case? I had a similar experience in my Dad's home several days ago.

Any comments or suggestions would be helpful.

shhh_im_sleeping, It could be the spirits in the home are becoming more active and may be feeding off your slight fear. (When you saw the white mist in the mirror) ,im sure fear jumped right in you. The clinging or grabbing is somethimg to be concerned about. It sounds like they are becoming slightly stronger. I would try a cleansing. Because the scratches on your shoulder is not a good sign. Sorry I'm not trying to scare you, just concerned. Stay safe

I suppose it won't be long before someone comes along to ask if you know the history of the house...

There were no marks on me prior to showering and it was a definite grab to my bottom (not just a clinging from the shower curtain). I have seen two apparitions in my home but I thought they were harmless. Maybe they are not. I'm going to try taking pics and see what I can catch. I have asked these spirit (s) to not bother me. I'm not too sure what to do because no one else in my home is being affected, just me.

You know, what with the dark shadow and the white mist, (and remembering your other story about your Mom,) I get this feeling you had a negative entity in your home which your Mom felt the need to deal with like moms tend to do. Is the shadow guy still bothering you? Only a thought.

Greetings shhh_im_sleeping firstly let me say to you that a shadow combined with the scratches your describeing and the disembodied voices are neither an overactive imagination nor a harmless spirit. The three together suggest a spirit of malevolent intent with enough power to manifest and interact with you phisicaly, I do not tell you this to frighten you but to warn you these scratches are a clear message from the spirit asserting its presence and strength. Luckily there are some simple ways to protect yourself and those in your house, firstly smudgeing the house with salt will eliminate the negitive energy the spirit may feed on next salt across doorways and windows create a barrier most spirits cannot pass, also keeping wild roses in your house may repel the harmfull spirit, you may also wish to add a prayer or holy water or religious icons of your faith and command the spirit firmly to leave your home it is not welcome there. You can also use a protective bath mixed into a bath of warm or hot water useing dried rose petals holywater fine salt and the ash of frankincense and myr and dragons blood incence, it should provide you with protection from the spirits touch, also copper has been known to trap and maintain entities sometimes and cold iron can repel spirits most times so keeping copper around your house or carrying a bit of cold iron may help if these steps fail the time will be right to call in a holyman to exorcise the malevolent entity, please keep me informed of the situation as it progresses

Good luck and gods bless and keep you,
Your friend, Papa Thorn Singing Bear, The Puppeteer

Hi shhh_im_sleeping, while you were showering, did you have any sensations on your shoulder? Or just the bottom pinch. I find it un nerving that you have been physically hurt by something. The obvious questions though are could the marks have been done prior to you jumping in the shower with out you realising, and you only noticed it after, and because you had the other experience, it seemed to be linked.

I have not read your other stories yet (I promise I will😳) so I obviously don't know if you have had previous experiences with the dark / misty shadows, I would certainty take a few photos to see if you can pick anything up at all.
