My Backyard


Since my last story posting, I haven't seen or heard anything in my house since I tried the cleansing and visualization techniques which seemed to help.

I am now terrified to go outside in my yard when its dark out, at least by myself. I have a pretty decent sized yard, 1/3 of an acre, it's like 50x260.

My basement has an outside entrance to get downstairs to the laundry room, so I usually try to do laundry when it's still light out and if something is in the dryer I leave it until the next day.

Well, the other night I was locking up the house before bed, probably around 9:30-10pm. My fiance usually does this for me but he was playing video games and couldn't be disturbed. I had to go outside and close the basement door so I could set the alarm. I immediately ran to the door and noticed the lights on downstairs so I, of course, had to go down and shut them off before shutting the door.

After I was closing the door and putting the lock on it, I turned around to go back onto my deck to go into the house. All I saw standing in the middle of my yard was a dark shadow figure just slowly levitating over my lawn. I was so scared that I jetted into the house and locked the door, set the alarm and went into my bedroom and didn't say a word about it.

This is the 3rd time I have physically seen something outside, usually just feels like the little hair on my arms stand on end. I am wondering since I had done a cleansing and visualization techniques that it left my house and now is lingering in my yard? Or this could be a completely different entity all together?

I don't want to be afraid of it, but now I am also wondering if I am sensitive to the paranormal.

There is a 50/50 chance that the 'energy/entity or spirit' that exited your home due to any Cleansing and Shielding you may have done may be 'lingering' on the property and not 'in the home'. Sense Cleansing and Shielding's should be repeated every so often so that they maintain their strength I suggest just that, but expand your visualization to include your yard, all the way to your property lines... Include any sheds and or vehicles that may be on the property as well.

As for being a sensitive, the best way to figure that out is to start a Journal... Use the experience with this cleansing as your first entry, and please keep us posted.
