My childhood best friend had a great deal of paranormal activity around him--and when I say that, he was (perhaps both unintentionally AND purposely, at times) inviting extremely dark, extremely negative energies into his personal space, and I've chosen to not relay the majority of the stories that happened essentially solely to him, for a few different reasons (including the fact that I wasn't there, can't remember all of the things that happened in the order that they did, etc). But I will tell this one!
This took place a few years ago. It was late at night, and he and I were walking around his yard. He lived on the outskirts of a forest, where sometimes you could see, hear, or sense "things." On this particular night of wandering the yard, we heard such a strange sound. It was almost like a gathering of some sort, with someone talking into a microphone, but everything said was so garbled. It was loud, yet you couldn't make out a word. At first we assumed it was coming from further down town and decided to walk in that direction, but after a few minutes the location of the source of the noise would change. In other words, if it had been behind us before, it was now in front of us; if it had been northwest, and we turned to face the northwest, it would suddenly switch to the south. If we turned to face the south, it would be in the east. (LET ME BE CLEAR: when I am saying this it was NOT that the noise was coming from all around us and "mostly" in one direction--it was more like it was coming from ONLY that direction, but would change location completely as soon as we tried to go to where it was.)
It happened a few different times before he and I decided to go back in. Once we were inside we could no longer hear the noise--even though the walls were thin, and if we had been outside, standing right next to the trailer, we would have been hearing it. His brother and sister-in-law, who he lived with, hadn't heard anything when we asked them.
Nothing else happened the weekend I was there that I can remember, but something DID happen when I arrived back home Sunday evening.
I remember sitting at my computer, reading about a non-related topic, when I felt this awful, black energy the opposite side of my room. I can't explain it other than to say that my room suddenly had a HORRIBLE energy, but it wasn't the room itself, nor was I "just creeped out"--it was specifically emanating from that corner. I was too scared to even move from the computer and would try to glance over with my peripherals, but saw nothing - Just FELT it. I lasted perhaps thirty minutes with that terror, but by then I was exhausted, frustrated, so I stood up, straightened my back, and said, "You need to leave immediately. Leave my room, leave my home. Don't linger in this area. Never return."
At that age I was pretty shy with everyone, but I said it so firmly that I could barely even believe I was the one who said it. And as soon as I had, I FELT it leave... Almost slowly, but not quite. After a minute or so, the room felt completely normal. I never felt anything quite like that again.
As I said before, that friend had been dealing with a lot of negative energies, and is quite possibly still dealing with them. I fully believe that that thing that was in my room that night followed me home--that it was perhaps the same thing that had been tormenting him, or was perhaps another entity that wanted to see if I would "go along" with it.
I've dealt with other paranormal events, but this is honestly probably one of the scariest for me, if not the scariest, solely because of how EVIL that thing felt. And I am honestly so happy to be a part of a website that allows people to convey their experiences in this way.
[at] Kindly_refrain: That's very, very interesting! Over the years I've been looking for some story that at least sort of matched with mine, to see if I could get any potential insight on it, but this is the first time I've heard one like yours. I'm definitely going to look over your account. And for the record, if I remember correctly our night ended with BBQ!
[at] Biblio: That's really interesting! I've never researched much into woodland creatures, but perhaps I should now, so thank you for sharing that. ^_^ Also, I know I've already given a few more details into what happened with our relationship, but essentially, as we were growing up we were becoming two different people that were very incompatible with one another. I'd explain more, but in order for someone to fully understand everything that was happening it would take up at least three pages haha
[at] Cuddlebear: You went there! XD Happy Halloween!
Also, thank you tons for sharing this! It's actually really valuable information. This story--with the voices--is the only one in a long string of related incidents that I've never been completely sure was paranormal. And even now, with your explanation, I'm not sure... Simply due to how, as I said, it's one in a long string of related incidents. XD I'm rambling anyway, so again, thank you for sharing!
[at] CuriousDee: Thank you a lot for sharing those stories! They do seem to be familiar to mine. Since it's been a few years since I've even talked to him, and longer than that since we've talked about Ouija boards, I can't remember exactly... But I WANT to say that he told me once that when he he was around eight years old he and his cousins did "play" with a board, but nothing happened. Still, that was around seven or eight years before this started, so I personally don't believe they're related. IF they are related, I am able to say that things didn't get so bad with him because of the board, but because on some level he enjoyed the "company" of the spirit/s that were around him.
