This event happened early in 2007. As a member of Couples for Christ, one of our obligations is to attend weekly meetings with our household group. In short, each couple within our group would take turns to host these weekly meetings, where we would gather, pray, and read a scripture from the bible.
During this particular week, the youngest couple within our group of 6 couples, hosted the meeting. They had just bought their first home a year earlier.
My family arrived, along with the others and everything started off smoothly until we got to the end of our prayer session. I suddenly got this huge migraine. It hit me like a ton of bricks. My husband knew something was wrong with me, discreetly directed me into the kitchen and asked what was wrong.
As soon as we stopped in the kitchen, my headache disappeared as if nothing had happened. I said, "I don't know. I had this massive headache but now it's gone..." Shrugging my shoulders, we both walked back into the family room to listen to the bible reading. As soon as I sat back down, my migraine attacked again. Whimpering like someone just kicked me in the head, my husband asked the host of the house, if they had some paracetamol for my headache. The lady of the house retrieved some Panadol and I followed her into the kitchen to get a glass of water. I thanked her and she returned back to the family room, leaving me in the kitchen on my own.
From where I was standing, I could see my husband sitting down on his chair. He turned to look at me and smiled. Then appearing behind him, I saw this black figure or shadow-like person, resting one hand on the back of my husband's chair but just standing comfortably as if listening in on our little meeting. I just about dropped the glass, from surprise, I guess. My husband, watching my facial expression, looked behind him, but couldn't see what I could see. This shadow was still standing there, then faded. I drank my water and Panadol, placed the glass into the sink, splashed water onto my face and returned to the family room, sitting down next to my husband.
For the rest of the night, I didn't experience any more headaches or felt as though something or someone else was present in the house.
After we got home that night, I mentioned to my husband what I saw. I told him not to mention it to the young couple since the lady was 4-5 months pregnant. I didn't want to alarm her or her unborn. Could this shadow-like spirit be a past residence of the house? Or the young couple's relative, looking in on them? They haven't experienced anything and the house was blessed soon after they bought it, so, perhaps the spirit just came for a brief visit.
