I have some concerns about some encounters I've had, so I'm posting here to maybe get suggestions?
Let me tell you a little about me.
I am a recently turned 16, but have been having things happen to me since I was about 5. I was raised religious, but I'm not all that religious anymore. When I was younger, it was mostly lucid dreams, with me waking up with sleep paralysis. It was fine for a while, until I got older.
As I got older, I've noticed things only happening around me (Which is odd, because I have a large family). Light flickering and stuff moving (Small stuff). I got use to this, because I didn't really know what to do anyway. Then it moved on to physical touches. Not anything violent, but it wasn't entirely pleasant to me because it freaks me out. It mostly happens at night when I'm about to go to bed. Normally I'd pass it off as my body hair brushing against me, but it feels different than that. It feels very ticklish, almost electric, as if the touches are under my skin rather than on it. Body hair simply feels uncomfortable to me.
Sometimes it feels comforting and helps me sleep. Other times, I feel a choking-like sensation. Not like something is suffocating me, but like something has its hands around my neck loosely. It's unsettling, but I'm never scared when it happens. All of the above still happens to me, but I haven't had sleep paralysis recently. Just strange touches and lights flickering with stuff moving as of date.
I would go more in depth about the nature of this spirit, but those stories aren't allowed, I'm a minor, and it's incredibly embarrassing. So I won't do that. But any advice? Should I be worried? I'm not exactly worried because it's been happening for nearly half my life, but I want others' opinions. I'm also willing to answer questions if you need more information.
Thanks for reading!
I increasingly interested in how you developed your various theories although psychosexual development seems to play an integral part. Please do let me know although refrain from assumptions and sexual innuendo if you will.
