This happened during a visit to Santiago de Chile, some twenty years ago.
I stayed at a hotel in a part of town called Barrio Brasil. My room was not fancy nor bad. Just a cheap stay for a couple of days. I got the keys, left my bag and headed out on town.
I got back in the evening and went to bed. Right there and then the atmosphere in the room started to change. A unpleasant feeling started to grow. After a while the feeling was so intense I put the lamp back on.
The feeling is difficult for me to describe. Strong general discomfort mixed with anger (someone else's anger) are the best words for it. Have you ever felt a bad feeling in a room after a feud between angry people? This feeling was similar. Only it was worse, much much heavier. There and then I thought it was all in my mind and tried to sleep but it was impossible. The feeling lasted.
At one point I got a vision of a person yelling. I don't know if the bad feeling created the vision or if it was the other way around. Nor can I give a good description of the "being", except for black hair and something like a negative glow of anger surrounding him or her. The vision ended quickly but the discomfort was still there, the lamp stayed on for the rest of the night.
I was still scared and very tired the next morning but too insecure to ask for another room. I was 21 years old and did not know how to handle the situation. I absolutely did not want to disclose the reason for changing to another room. The next night was as bad as the first if not worse. I've never experienced anything remotely similar to this day. I'm older now and certain that it wasn't my imagination.
The bad feeling lasted only as long as I stayed in that room. So what was it? A psychic I spoke to briefly said it could have been a memory of something negative that had been taken place there at one time. Santiago as many cities in Latin America has a history of war and suffering so what the psychic said sound possible. If someone has any thoughts, please share.
"Empathic ability is always good, right?:) "
It depends on the situation or the person. It can be very overwhelming to other people to some extent that they get drained all the time especially if that person is constantly exposed to negative energies surrounding him/her. That is why some people who don't know they are empathic in nature suffers depression or fatigue especially if they have no idea to shield themselves from this negative energies on a daily basis.
It is good in a sense that you can actually use it for the benefit of other people. I am a Nurse and there are certain times that I can feel my patient's pain, especially the ones who are unable to speak for themselves, the bed ridden and very sick. At those times I may not be able to heal them supernaturally but I know I can alleviate their pain by giving pain medicines and it does help them.
" it was so intense but at the same time I oddly felt 'it'would not hurt me physically. So that was some kind of comfort I guess."
Most probably because the room was not haunted by an entity at that time? What you experienced is a residual negative energy picked up by an empath like you. That is my opinion though, I could be wrong.
"I hope someone capable will try to cleanse that room, try to get rid of whatever lingers. If it's possible that is. I don't know if it's possible to get rid of memories if that is what it is?"
I am speaking based on experience here. In regards to negative energies being picked up by empaths on a certain place, the only way, if there are no entities actively haunting that place, is by providing a positive energy. By just simply imagining and projecting a feeling of happiness, love, excitement, or any positive emotions on that place do help a lot on changing a certain vibe on a place. As simple as opening curtains and letting natural light flood homes and just simply be happy, cancels that overwhelming negative energies.
Thanks for sharing your story and God Bless.
