Last September, I waited until my family went to a football game and used sage in every nook and cranny of my house, including the attic, to get rid of this presence that feeds off my family. It seems to amplify negative emotions and feed off that energy, from what I observed. It has been around since I was young, but things have been getting out of hand so I decided to burn sage to protect my family.
For a brief history, it talked to me when I was 10. All it said was "Yeees" in a raspy whisper. I haven't heard it talk since then, but at work when I was 20 I felt it started to drain my energy and follow me around work for a week until my (now former) friend did something to make it go away. When we had a falling out, it came back but the activity wasn't bad, I only could feel it was near.
After I turned 21 and started going steady with my high school friend, the activities skyrocketed. When I slept over, I saw a black hooded figure in his window... And we are on the 2nd floor. I was forced to fall asleep by something and was choked. No, it's not my boyfriend because he was fast asleep when I forced myself to wake up.
There used to be all this drama in my family ever since I was a kid, which may or may not have been caused by the entity, but all I know is that after the sage burning, everything in my family has settled down. Unfortunately, I think it moved onto feeding off my boyfriend's family. I'll spare you the drama and skip to the part where I refuse to go to his house anymore until his family apologizes. Ever since that day, there has been so much negative energy built up into the house, you can feel it from outside.
Recently, one night we were discussing that entity as we were falling asleep. I was forced to fall asleep and it felt like a wave pushed me out of my body yet started to choke me. I was wide awake in mid-conversation before that. I had to force myself awake, I've been getting better with making myself wake up when it forces me to sleep. Needless to say, we lit a candle. It won't do anything if there is light in the room.
We sometimes see bright flashes of light in my pitch black room that has blinds drawn shut, we have no car lights that could possibly reach my room because my window is at an angle from the street and we have a tall fence. That light lasts for 10 seconds and fills our whole vision if our eyes are open, or if our eyes are shut but we are still awake it's still shines just above us.
He slept at his house the other week, and he heard footsteps outside his door. Eventually whatever was pacing back and forth started to growl and say, "Don't do this to me..." My boyfriend locked his door, and noticed that the black hooded figure that's usually outside his window had bolted. He does not feel safe there even in the day.
I would like to know if this is all one demon, or several entities combined. I'm willing to burn sage around his house, but I'm pretty sure I would have to be on good terms with his family for it to work. It won't work if I'm not genuinely welcome, and I know I'm not because they haven't apologized.
