This is very difficult for me to write because of the occurrences that transpired when I was in the house I am going to tell you about. When I was 6 years old until the time I was 12, I lived in a house in the East Bay of California. It was the 1980's and the house only had one previous tenant. It was only four years old when my parents decided to buy the house. Nothing seemed strange about the house at first. I slept in a room right across the hall from my parents and if anything were to happen I could yell and get their attention.
One night, about a year after moving in, me and my parents heard a large thud at the front door of the house. My father went to the front door (keep in mind that the time was about 11pm at night). When my father opened the door there was no one there, but when he looked down at the door mat there was a chicken with its head chopped off. My parent, having come from a very superstitious background, knew right away what this was; it was an attempt to invoke evil spirits into the house. We had no idea who would want to do this but it was obvious that they did not like us.
Two month later I was sleeping in my bedroom and that is when the occurrences began. I woke up in the middle of the night and when I look into my closet I saw a tall woman with a white dress staring into the closet. I was so scared, I thought I was dreaming at first but I rubbed my eyes and pinched myself and I felt the pain and knew I was not dreaming or seeing things; this was real! Instead of yelling I just went back to sleep.
The next night I slept with my parent and I told them the story. They said that maybe it was the voodoo, but even at my age, I was a bit skeptical. I should have not been because about three months after the first incident I woke up again in the middle of the night and right beside my bed was a woman with white hair and her body was transparent. She looked demonic and the moonlight was shining right through her. Her hand was reaching out for me and again I check to see if I was awake. I was, and I tried to wake my parents up but they would not wake up, after that attempt, I passed out from being so frightened.
I told my parents what was happening and they had the house blessed. This helped for a little while but the occurrences started happening again. This time with everyone in my family experiencing what I did. My sister, who is 16 months younger then me, went to the backyard in the middle of the night to feed my dog, when she looked up and saw misty forms reaching out toward her. She yelled and ran back to tell my parents.
Other times my whole family would be eating and a black form would step in front of us and move away and my parent would say; "hey, did you see that!" We would always say yes, after a while we got used to those occurrences. However, there were even more terrifying events.
My mother one time was saying goodbye to my family friends and something rubbed up against her and went inside the house. There was no one there. Another time my family was having a New Years Party and, on the glass door in the backyard were three big knocks. My family and extended family were right in front of the glass door and saw no one on the other side. We look at the backyard and no one was there. Sometime there would be knocks on the front door in the middle of the night. This became annoying after a while and my parents and I stopped answering the door.
Another time I got possessed and had no control over my body and began speaking words from my mouth that I had no control over and my body moved without me being able to control it. Yet, another time, when my uncle was over, I had to sleep by my parents. I woke up in the middle of the night and looked at the ground and I saw something crawling toward me. It looked evil, I can't describe it other then saying that it was foul looking. The last thing that really impacted me what when I was taking a shower and the water became so hot I got burnt. No matter how much I turned the cold water high, it still was scolding hot. My babysitter tried to find out what was going on too. When we looked at the water heater, the heat knob was turned all the way up. In front of the heater were big empty water bottles and none of them were out of place. That meant that no one physical could have moved that knob.
I can't tell you anymore because so many things happened in that house and we moved after having lived there for 6 years. Until this day, I cannot sleep with the light off. I will be traumatized by that place for the rest of my life. If anyone reading this story has similar occurrences please move out! Do not stay! It will always be with you in your memories. That is the only reason I am writing this.
