I decided to write this story, not to try freak anyone out or to share the experience but to actually get advice and help.
About 3 months ago my partner, my 2 step sons and I moved house.
For the first month nothing was out of the ordinary in our new home but after the first month my eldest step son who is 8 years old started having some very scary nightmares.
I didn't really pay attention to the things he would say because I thought it was just his imagination going wild in a new place.
He would complain about seeing a figure in a dark corner of his room and seeing a green light move around his room at night. I thought he spent too much time staring at his ipad and maybe his eyes were playing up. I would explain and reassure him every night.
Within the last month things have seemed to escalate. When my step son comes home from school he goes straight to his room and closes the door and stays there for hours if I let him, he won't allow people in and gets angry when his little brother tries to enter. He complains about sore legs constantly.
He gets upset over the smallest things and will throw tantrums. This is unusual behavior for him.
I work on the weekends and the boys sleepover at grandma's because the hours I work are long hours, late nights and early mornings.
My 8yr old has also started saying that when he wakes at night there is a man on his floor spinning in circles, and that there is a little girl in his closet sometimes. There is also a man in our house with an axe.
I have figured that this man that spins on the floor is the reason why he doesn't get out of bed to wake me anymore, like he used to when he was scared at night.
He used to love coming home after a weekend at grandma's but this weekend he was upset and the only way I could get him home without taking him kicking and screaming was to promise him that he didn't have to sleep in his room again, both the boys are sleeping in my room now.
My little sister is 21, she visited our house for a few weeks and complained about sleep paralysis multiple times a week. She was afraid to sleep alone and at times would only sleep during the day when I could keep an eye on her.
Now here's where it gets creepier.
Today I was at grandma's, we used to live there and our neighbor started a conversation with grandma while I was convincing my 8yr old to come home.
Grandma started talking to the neighbor about some of the things my 8yr old sees and explained that's why he doesn't want to come home.
The neighbor then told us that her daughter used to experience very similar things. She was seeing a man and a little girl in their house. She would say that something was on her chest at night and that something was biting and pinching her when she was in bed at night.
She would complain that her legs were sore and when her mother slept with her she (the mum) would wake up with scratches on her face.
The neighbor got help and was told the two entities were just one entity, a man manifesting as a little girl to seem less intimidating to her daughter. They cleansed their house and the bad energy.
So I have many questions.
Where does the bad energy go? Can it just latch on to the next person and follow them?
How do I get rid of what's in my house? Could it be the same thing my old neighbors had?
Where do I find the stuff I need to get rid of it?
