Its been awhile since I wrote a story, mostly because I was so busy with life and having two little kids running around the house. I've had experiences with spirits all my life, so has my mother, and other members of my family. I did some research into this and I probably have some empath abilities, and probably some other abilities, I just can't put my finger on them all, nor have I developed them, and I don't begin to know where to begin with this. In any regard, I posted a bunch of stories about my house and the experiences I have been having there in the past. Because things got so busy in the house, I stopped paying attention to the various events. I have two kids, a 4.5 year old and a 2.5 year old, now, and a non believer wife, at least she doesn't want to admit to it. I had the house blessed at least 3 times, blessed it myself, with improvement in the activity each time, to the point there is just a level of baseline activity that is tolerable, such as seeing things in the corner of your eye, the feeling of being watched, and it happens in waves.
What prompted me to write this, is that I wanted to see if anyone ever had experience with this and the activity is starting to get stranger.
A few months ago, my dog, Reggie, a 150 lb rottweiler, who was as sweet as could be, and 7 years old got very sick at my parents house. He was 7 years old, and it appears my parent's neighbor poisoned him. He got so sick that he couldn't move, the vet diagnosed him with diabetes and pancreatitis at first. He didn't improve with treatment, and I had to put him to sleep. Prior to this, I got a tox screen on him and found he had high levels of arsenic and antifreeze in him. I can't even express how bad this has been for me, and worst off, I don't have proof the neighbor did it. Anyways, when Reggie was sick, my kids said they saw him walking around the house (he wasn't at our house at that time), my oldest son was convinced there was a black dog hiding in the closet in the sunroom of our house. He took me there, I couldn't see anything, but I did feel like I was being watched and did feel a presence. I did not acknowledge this. I asked him if it was Reggie, he said no, just a black dog. Another time, he saw Reggie in our TV room, and said it was Reggie, so the 'black dog' freaked me out because he can tell the difference between Reggie the rottweiler and a black dog. Also, the black dog was in the sunroom. My other son claims to also have seen the black dog. This happens on occasion, and there hasn't been a black dog sighting for a few months.
Fast forward to the past few weeks. Out of nowhere, this putrid smell started to come out of the sunroom. The smell was that of rotting flesh, its happened before and disappeared, this time it was in your face. It was so strong, you would gag in the room. I looked all around couldn't find a source of the smell, looked outside, nothing, looked up in the rafters, nothing. I'm a physician, and I know how rotting flesh smells like, and this is flesh that is right in your face, so something was big and dead, or it was right there. Oddly enough the smell would move from one corner of the room to another. As mysteriously as the smell came on, after a day or so, it disappeared. I've had this happen at my house before, and we couldn't explain it. We also have smelled the smell of incense that was used in the blessing in various areas around there, almost as being mocked. The strange thing is that my kids can play there when the smell is around and not be bothered one bit, and they don't smell it, only my wife and I.
What bothers me even more now, is that my mother, who is with the boys while my wife and I are at work was bringing my kids home from the library, and my oldest said, I don't want to go home, its haunted. My little one replied, yes, its a demon. I have never talked to my kids about anything paranormal going on in the house, have never used the term haunted or demon around them. I don't even watch paranormal shows with them around, and I don't know how they came up with this. My 2.5 year old keeps joking and saying we are going to die over and over as well. Now this kid is not afraid of anything. My oldest son has some issues with speech and sensory issues, small noises scare him, he's easily scared, has a bit of a speech delay, otherwise is a normal kid. The kids don't act out, they don't interact with anyone who is or isn't there. What I have noticed is that my wife and I fight a lot lately, and its usually over stupid things. Come home from work and stupid things are said, or there is a feeling of hopelessness, in that this is the same ole routine day after day. I know some of it is just the parenting blues and being tired, but this is all happening when my kids are talking about this haunting and a demon.
In terms of what I've seen or experienced, I've had some really vivid and strange dreams, ranging from being lost in a field I've been at before, to things I can't remember but wake up remembering them. I occasionally see shadows in the corner of my eye, and sometimes, orbs or shadows right in front of me. I've sat in the sunroom by myself and kind of spaced out, I wouldn't call it formal meditation, I had this weird feeling or thought in my head that popped up that people were playing with a quija board in the sunroom at one time. Again, it was just a weird thought, and I'm not sure what that means or if I should trust this.
I'm not quite sure what I should do, part of me wants to invest in some emf detectors and investigate this, another part wants me to try another blessing. What frightens me is that my kids see this and kind of know something is going on.
