I live in a small flat in Cape Town, not an old flat, I believe it used to be a garage. I have been experiencing strange occurrences my whole life, but now that I have moved out of my parent's house it seems to have increased. It could be because I am able to just be myself, I have always been sensitive to these things so maybe a lack of distractions has made the occurrences happen more frequently.
It started with strange sounds and finding objects in different places than before and the feeling of being watched, you know, the usual. It wasn't until recently that I started to feel a little scared and I'm sure it's because my fiancé and I have been going through a difficult time together and there has been an increase in negative energy.
About a month ago I woke up from a noise that sounds like stuff being dragged across a table, got up and checked but saw nothing. Often what we do when we've had a tough week we pull the bed into our tiny lounge and watch tv and play games until we fall asleep, we will do this for the whole weekend. The first night I was struggling to fall asleep, I was sick and had a general feeling of unease. At around 3am I heard very fast knocking on the front door. It being 3 am and us living in a security complex I figured it was just a spirit trying to tell me something. For once I was wrong because about 10 seconds later I woke up from a friend calling us from our back yard (just about had a heart attack). While my fiancé went outside to reprimand our friend I suddenly went stiff and heard something in my right ear say quite angrily "GET OUT" and then all went calm. I figured I was just sleep deprived and heard something else that could have sounded similar.
The next morning, I woke up and did the usual breakfast and quick clean up. At around 2pm my fiancé points to the wall and asks" What's that?". There was a red drip on the wall, straight down. Our wall has a bit of a texture so for anything to drip down in a perfectly straight line is really unusual, never mind the fact that it is in the middle of the wall above eye level and red and only one, not a sign of any other red marks anywhere. I wipe it off the wall and continue with my day. The next day we wake up to another red drip mark in the kitchen this time, same red as the day before just a different wall. Again, no sign of red anywhere else. These marks were in places where we would definitely have seen them during our normal daily routines.
Two days later I found my hamster dead in her cage, she was old but had gone from super energetic to barely emerging from her nest in the space of one day. I knew this day would come but when I found her she had her eyes open and her front paws pressed together.
I was a little freaked out about the drip marks but shook it off, no physical harm done so I did not feel threatened. The week starts again so the bed goes back into the room and the week continues. I think it was a Wednesday night, we were watching tv and we heard what sounded like hammering coming from the ceiling. We have nobody above us or next door to us or even next door to that flat, the hammering continues for about 15 minutes. We decided it was time to go to bed so I get my bed ready, go pee and head back to the lounge to get my glass of water. My water was on a table that is against the back wall of the lounge also where my hamster cage used to be. As I approach the table a huge bang comes from the wall that shakes the paintings hanging against it. I couldn't move any closer, I left the water and just went straight to bed. Didn't sleep well that night.
Since then activity has stopped. The odd feeling of being watched here and there but nothing else. I have developed insomnia since then though. It's difficult to distinguish if our negative energy was making things worse or if something bought negative energy into the house. It was like a cloud was hanging in our flat which since then has been lifted.
