This is going to be a long story but I believe it will make me feel better sharing it, for I know many people have had many encounters with supernatural entities and unexplainable experiences.
This is a story that started during in the summer of 2008. At the time I was a college student, pursuing my undergraduate degree from the University. That summer, a close friend of mine and I worked for a pre-college summer program as dorm counselors.
Working as a dorm counselor can be rewarding but it can also be hectic and full of headaches, especially if the program you are working for is really disorganized or has students who do not want to be there.
Well, one day, one of my students left home without letting anyone know (it was a summer camp so people can't just go home because they wanted to). By the time I found out, it was late at night. I had to call her parents, only to find out that she was at home and that she was picked up by them during the day (they never checked her out so no one knew she was gone). However, her parents were not happy about the call (it was a late night phone call) and demanded a meeting with the program director.
The whole situation got me really upset so I called my friend (the one working there but was on a different floor). She came down to comfort me and hear me out. As I was telling her about what happened on the phone, she cut me off and asked, "Is that your student?" I turned around to look but only saw the door closing at the end of the hallway where the staircase was. Without saying a word, we both rushed to the staircase, trying to catch 'this girl.' Just so you know, a lot of the participants tend to sneak out at night into each other's rooms. My friend, being faster than me, started going down the stairs while I went up the stairs. I only needed to go up two floors because the rest of the floors were not in use. I checked both floors and its counselors but they all claimed that their girls were in their respective rooms and that they haven't seen anyone leaving or coming. My friend too, checked with every floor and none of the counselors saw the girl she saw (with a white towel wrapped around her hair, appear to be medium/darker skin colored). We even brought it up during the meeting but no one saw the girl we were talking about.
That night, after the meeting, a girl was rushed to the hospital because her hair spray bottle had fallen of the shelf and sprayed her in the eye. Her counselor needed to go with her so I was called to do rounds, meaning every so often myself and one other person will have to go from floor to floor checking, making sure no one was sneaking out. The rounds finished at around 2AM.
After working the rounds, I returned to my room and fell deep asleep as you can imagine what a day it was. I slept well until maybe 6 AM when I was awaken by what sounded like someone sliding their feet across the floor in my room. At that very moment I tried to open my eyes and turned to face the door (where the sound was coming from) but something, which felt like someone, held me down. I was on my side (in the process of turning) unable to move though, my mind was going crazy. I remembered during this incident, I can hear my inside voice telling me to 'just say something' or 'just move a finger,' so that I can break free. Whatever it was that was holding me down was really strong. I was pretty scared, for I have never experience such a thing, but when it started laughing, I got more scared. It was a female/girl (about college age or bit younger) and she was really enjoying the moment. I even remembered her taunting me to open my eyes and look at her, I was too scared. I eventually broke free after a few minutes of praying and was able to get up.
That morning, I told my friend about the incident and she told me that at around the same time she was awaken by a very similar sound to the one I described but instead of turning to see where it was coming from, she got up. When she got up, she saw nothing and thought that it may have been the wind blowing against her stick notes but she didn't go back to sleep because she felt 'strange.'
The days after that incident, we both switched off and on sleeping with each other. For the most nights we were not disturbed however, one time we were so tired and decided to take a nap in my room when all of the students had gone off to class. At the time, we had another counselor who likes to hang around us and had decided to join us on our little nap. She dreamt, while napping with us that a girl kept on coming into the room asking her to move and to stop sleeping next to her friend. She woke up half way off the bed.
We tried not to think much of it but I decided to call home to tell my mom about the incident. My mom told me to go outside, find a branch, take it to my room and sweep the whole room while saying, 'This is not your sleeping place, this is not your dwelling place, please leave,' then to throw the branch outside. I did this to both mine and my friend's room. By this time, the camp was already coming to an end. After the camp, I moved back home.
I was living in an apartment with a few friends but the lease was, too, coming to an end so I went back home. However, something else came home with me too. At home, I continued to experience this so called sleep paralysis from the same entity that bothered me in the dorm. The strange thing was, when I don't have sleep paralysis, I dream a very similar dream and always wake up in fear. My dreams often go something like this, I am somewhere and a friend of mine would show up. This friend would then become very possessive of me, sometimes she would be in love with me... She would not let me go or let me out of her sight. By the middle of the dream, I would realize that she is not human meaning she is dead because no one around me would see her or else I would see the friend that she is posing as. Then for the rest of the dream, I will be trying to escape her (gently) without alarming her that I know she is dead and in the sweet moment of escape, I will wake up unable to go back to sleep.
This went on for some times and I was starting to sleep less and less, in fear of having sleep paralysis or nightmares. My parents finally called a shaman to perform a ritual and to ask the spirit to leave. I will have to say, ever since then nothing seems to bother me in my sleep or in my dreams anymore. However, the last time I heard of this entity, and I know it is the same one, was when I went abroad. It was in 2011. It was then when my sister started to sleep in my bed. She did not experience any sleep paralysis but she would often dream about a girl coming to look/to ask for me and my whereabouts. I believe my parents had to do something again but now there is peace and I hope it will stay this way.
Thank you for reading my story. I hope that everyone will be released from unpleasant things.
