When my husband moved in with us after we married. We experienced an entity that we were told was a woman who scratches males. He would wake up to long scratches on his back or in weird spots on his body. Other events would happen like running water when nobody was in that room, or someone running up and down the basement steps. Other family members heard these things as well. Since we rented we decided to move. The day we moved out we saw a shadow figure in the top floor window staring at us. Because of my past experiences and my husband's relating to ghosts and spirits, we would cleanse each place we moved to and say blessings as well we are Catholics, so holy water and rosaries were always a given. These events stopped but it seemed like every place we lived at, had some sort of entity never bad, but always present.
We now decided to venture into witchcraft and learning about spells and protection and candles blessed as well crystals. There are mixed opinions about everything, but we do what works for us. As we dive into learning about herbs and magick, we have salt protection, witches balls, etc and so far things are better. The air within our home feels safe and lighter. But one day recently my husband saw a shadow figure in the kitchen a couple of times in one day. He didn't tell me until I noticed him constantly staring past me. I jumped up reaching for holy water and demanded to know what it was. I do not know why but I smudged with sage, black salt, lit candles with crystals in them, threw protection oil and water in the spot he saw it plus everywhere, and opened a door trailing my spell and smudge smoke out with me. I walked around the entire home and continued my ritual and since then everything is fine. So, why does this keep happening to us?
We know that water and mirrors are portals for spirits, negative thoughts, anger, and sometimes antiques carry spirits that cling. We know that watching demonic shows etc lots of ways to have something attach itself to you but can I get a break? Yes, we fear the unknown and I'm not dabbling in witchcraft that is harmful. I'm learning and with an experienced Witch who has credibility.
Yet, I feel like everywhere around us is haunted and free-roaming spirits seem to cling to us. I do not buy antiques anymore, I do not have mirrors or water features in my home. The mirror in the bathroom has protection on it and I must mention my many Cats do not see anything. They were helpful in the past from other events that happened, but so far this place is safe.
We are careful about what we watch and think and know we must be positive if we are to ask for positive intentions and outcomes.
I would like to hear your opinions about why you think we continue to have an experience, and I forgot to add we are Empaths. We are quite sensitive to emotions and people and their pain. Might this be the reason?
Be well and stay safe during this tribulation. Thank you for your thoughts.
