In late December 2013, I was home for the holidays, and I was in my bedroom when my dog started acting strangely, as if she was staring at something. She didn't seem scared or aggressive, just as if a stranger had entered the room. I didn't think much of it and fell asleep again. Later that night, I woke up and heard heavy breathing behind my bedroom door, closely followed by footsteps running in the attic (where no one ever goes, especially not at 3 am). Let's just say I didn't sleep for the rest of the night.
A few nights later, I woke up and felt some sort of energy, like a presence. Immediately startled, I turned on the light and started reading a book, in order not to become too paranoid (which I really tend to do if I can feel something paranormal, which hadn't happened in a long time). Suddenly, I felt cold air brush against my left arm, gently, back and forth, as if stroking it (my door and my windows were closed). I knew there was someone, but strangely enough, I didn't feel scared at all. It was as if I knew the presence. After a moment I lifted my hand and stretched out my palm, and I felt the cold air shift and the form of a hand fit into mine. I asked the presence (which I couldn't see) if I could help it and if it was Aliban, but no answer. I then looked at my phone to see what time it was: 5.34 am. Almost the same time as when I saw the spirit the first time. Then it left. But right before dawn, at 7 am, I saw a misty white human form standing in front of me. And once again, I didn't feel scared. I just looked calmly at it, but then got up to get a glass of water. When I came back it was gone.
I went to my best friend after this. She is quite psychic and has also had dreams about Aliban (she knew how he looked like without me telling her). I told her what I had experienced and she told me that she had had weird dreams for about a year where she would often see a pale man with a blonde curly-haired woman, dressed in white (he would be dressed in black). (Years before I had seen Aliban's living form in a dream. He wasn't tall, had black hair and pale skin, and green eyes. Next to him there had been a blonde woman with curly hair, dressed in white.) I asked her if the man had black hair and looked like what I had seen, and my best friend said yes. And I had never told her about Aliban's living form. After that day nothing more happened. I didn't feel the presence again.
But two weeks ago, I had a weird dream where my best friend and I were being chased by something (can't remember what). We were in a castle, and had to get out because they had found us and we had something (two crystal balls, one blue and one red and there were four more to find). Anyway, later that day my best friend called me and told me she had had a weird dream where we were being chased because of some red and blue crystal balls. We discovered we had had almost the same dream, except some minor details.
A week ago, my best fried also had a dream where she was a rich blonde woman (with curly hair) who had bought a house and held a party because of that. She had then had a vision of black ghost trying to kill a brown haired girl. So she had come to her rescue and had managed to chase the ghosts. I asked her to describe the girls further, and we came to the conclusion that the girls were Liz and Aliban's girlfriend, who had been called Annabelle or Amelia by Liz. There had also been a calendar in the dream, which had showed the year was 1949 (around four years after Aliban's death).
In the meantime, I had begun reading about Ed and Lorraine Warren and demons, and came to a passage where Ed (who was a demonologist) gave a list of signs that showed you had demons in your home. This list included heavy breathing and disembodied footsteps, among a long list of other signs which I (thank God!) didn't have. But he also said that demons were always trying to deceive you and give you false information, and could take any form they wanted. And he said that they were often seen... In monk's robes. As I read that, terror shot through me. What if Aliban was/is a demon? What can I do? I don't believe in God and I can't get myself to do it (even though I've tried). I'm so scared that something will happen. No, I have never used an Ouija board, or automatic writing, or anything that opens the door to the underworld. But still.
Then again, Aliban (or whoever or whatever it was) came surrounded by light. He was holding a candle, which, I have read, has a religious connotation and is considered a positive symbol. He hasn't ever tried to harm me or anything, and I haven't felt in danger, even though I was scared (but that was more of the unknown).
Last night, I woke up again around 2.31 am and couldn't sleep (except this time it wasn't in my own bedroom). And around 5.20 I felt cold air brush my arm gently (both my door and my windows were closed. Again I wasn't scared, nor did I feel threatened. I asked it to go away, and around 5.40 it did. Then I fell asleep and nothing more happened.
So I am asking you: what do you think? Could Aliban be a demon? What does he want? Why does he make his presence known then stops giving information? What should I do? Should I try contacting him, and if yes, how? And if he is negative, how do I make him go away (my mother doesn't believe in ghosts or anything and would think I had deliberately summoned something, which I haven't)? And what if it isn't him? Who could it be? Please help as I am getting scared and confused.
Thanks a lot for reading. And thank you in advance for your help.
