Wandering Malevolent Spirit In My Home


Good day to all YGS readers and commentators. The incident that I'm about to share happened some time last year. All my experiences won't be posted in order so please bear with me as I submit stories at random that has happened in my life until date.

This story starts of with the same weird dream my mum was having which would lead her to wake up screaming. In this dream all of our family members would be under a huge tree praying and this man would come and grab her from behind and tell her to "Stop praying. I'm too strong for your prayers", It was the same dream that she had for almost a week.

My mum has sort of a sixth sense or a feeling when something isn't right (and she's always correct, but I'll get into those other stories at another time) so she asked my cousin if he could come over and see if anything is wrong at home (my cousin has divine vision where he goes into a trance like state, sort of a spiritual possession by our gods and goddesses).

So he came over and started blessing the house and then told us that a wandering spirit comes and goes from our house at night and watches us while we sleep. And also that it came through an open window (that would be my fault because I did, in fact, leave the kitchen window open over night. I didn't say anything because my mum would have a fit).

This spirit was not a good one and had very ill intent. We were also told that it was after another life and that by me mistakenly leaving the window open over night I had unintentionally invited it into our house. But after we blessed our house and were given limes to place by each door way and window we haven't had any bad experiences since then.

Thank you for clarifying. I thought some of the details had to do with custom. I always appreciate learning new customs and beliefs here.

I was going to ask about leaving a window open when it's warm outside, but I suppose the limes and protection would enable you to do so. Thanks again for the clarification. 😊

Hello everyone just to clarify somethings for you guys, yes in our belief system spirits can either attach itself to a person or also enter through door ways n open windows. In our hindu custom lime is used to ward of any negative spirit. We keep it in our vehicles and door ways and windows to prevent any harmful entity from entering a place.

[at] lady glow: I'm not sure what that was but as long as its not inside all is good, the spirit was basically a wandering spirit looking to attach itself to someone... And yes once now that the house is blessed we can sleep with every thing open. But rather not due to the high crime rate here in South Africa.

[at] curiousdee: in the hindu faith sometimes people are blessed with what we call a trance (divine possession) the different gods n goddesses are said to speak through that person and not many people are lucky to have this.

Hello Rajine, If some more details about this incident were provided then it would have been better.
However, in subcontinant, it is very comman for people to hang lemon and chillies wovenup in a cotton thread to ward off negative energies, black magic and also to avoid misfortune. They sometime also knock boat nail over their main door for warding off malevolent spirits etc.

If an aggressive/ malevolent spirit had to come inside any house, maybe it would not just resorted to open windows.

Although in sleep, as I have heard and felt to some extent that in this condition, although it also depends on the consciousness and will power and it vary from person to person, human brain's ability to see things increases. Someone takes it to right direction and some had bad and negative impact on them.

Please no offense ment. Thanks for sharing your mom's experience with us.

Hi Rajine,

I'm interested in your cousin's divine vision, and possession by gods and goddesses... Is this a type of mediumship, belief, or...? I haven't heard of these practices; such as a window being open can cause spirits to enter or limes being placed in doorways. I'm genuinely curious.

Hoping you can provide some clarification, thank you 😊

Hello Rajine.

I imagine your cousin is what I'd call a medium.

Did your cousin say where the spirit came from and where it went after the blessing and the placement of the limes?
Does it mean that it is still around and could enter your place again if not taking the due precautions?

Would it be possible to leave the windows open during the night as long as there's some protective limes around? - I hope there's a way to cut down the costs of the hidro bills. 😐

This is really scary. The fact that it had bad intentions for you and your family scares me even more. You were lucky for having someone to come and help you.

Thanks for sharing!

Limes? I knew they taste good. Now I know they can protect me too.

Odd though about leaving a window open being all the invitation an entity needs to come into a dwelling. I must look into that.
