I am writing this after long emotional talks with my grandma & mother, trips to temples, trip to my childhood home, and research on internet about all the paranormal stuff which happens around the world.
My last experience happened in a northern city of India, Dehradun which totally freaked me out. Then I was called to visit the Buddhist Monk. He asked me series of questions about me and my childhood. One of the questions was whether I had an imaginary friend. Those questions were unusual and forced me ask some uncomfortable questions from my mother. It was uncomfortable as my mother is quite conservative and reserved when it comes to talks of the 'beyond'. Still, it had become necessary now.
And as I called her and began asking certain questions, she jumped the topics and asked me to stop following other religions. Then I told her about all my experiences and I emphasized about the Biblical demons existing in Lord Jesus's era. The quieted down and asked me to visit my maternal grandma in Hong Kong. I called my grandma and she seemed to have weird reactions to my questions and described me a person named "Evelyn". Well, this person was my imaginary friend from childhood.
I went to HK and met my grandma. She narrated me about my childhood days which I had spent with my grandparents in Hong Kong. During the famous Chinese Hungry Ghost Month, I had made an imaginary friend named "Evelyn". This baffled me as I do not remember about her now. But my grandma told, that I had started seeing her (what she thinks) when she came to eat the food offering outside my grandparents house. I had described Evelyn as a young Caucasian lady wearing a long grayish-yellow maxi dress. She was sweet to me and used to treat me good. My grandma recalled few incidents when I was around 4 years old and I was talking to my grandma about the World Wars and the loss of people and the mess which the world was in. It was that time when my grandma had realized that Evelyn isn't imaginary but real and she is from the 'beyond'. My grandparents were scared as they thought that I had broken some rule in the Ghost Month and the ghost had attached itself to me so they had the house and me blessed.
Interestingly, after the blessing, Evelyn's visit and references about her stopped from my side. But my late grandfather saw her outside the house one day. My grandma believes that Evelyn had gotten angry with her and grandpa as they had broken her connection with me. And my grandpa had described Evelyn same as I had described about her. But my grandpa always saw her outside so he kept quiet about her presence around me.
I grew up without her in my memory. And I shifted around the world with my parents and I got to know one more shocking secret from my mother. After I had shifted with my parents, my mother also saw Evelyn. At first, she thought she was having hallucinations due to her medications. But as my younger brother grew older and started speaking, he started aiming at Evelyn and talked about her. My mother freaked out when she discussed about Evelyn with my brother. He described her same as my grandpa had described her which was same as my description. This freaked my mother to this extent that she sent me & my brother to a convent boarding school thinking that maybe being closer to God would force Evelyn away from her kids. For all these years, me and my brother never brought up anything about spirits or anything paranormal to the dinner table or family reunions, so she thought everything was cooled down. But when I called her, she lost her peace of mind and decided to let me know about Evelyn since I was grown up and mature.
So when I called my brother, he told me that he hasn't had any paranormal experience ever. So I concluded that Evelyn is attached with me. I tried to research on any woman named Evelyn who lived in Hong Kong in 1900s, but found none. So I am at an dead end with Evelyn's details.
And then I had a weird experience just when I came back to my apartment in Dehradun after my trip to Hong Kong. I sat on my bed, thought of Evelyn, and spoke about all the things I had learnt from my trip to childhood home. The I asked her if she is still stuck or attached with me just because I had opened the umbrella inside the house so many years ago (My grandma thinks that is how she got attached according to the Chinese Ghost Month code of conduct). And then, all of a sudden I felt really warm, so warm that I almost felt as if someone poured warm water over me. I felt good as it is cold still in this part of India and the feeling of warmth felt good. I thought of it as yes and it was the first time I didn't feel scared but surprised at her readiness to interact with me.
And I keep on searching for Evelyn's history and her link to me. How and why is it that she found a friend in me?
