My first demonic experience happened when I was only five-years-old. The year was 1995 in Sykesville, Md. I was sleeping in our guest room because my little bed had broken recently. Because I was little, I think the demonic beings I saw were presented to me in a way I could understand. Still, at the time, and even now it's very chilling to think about.
For instance, I did not see anything particularly "scary" at first. I remember that night I was sleeping on a couch when it happened. I was fully awake and I started to see things. At first, I stared out the window and then I saw a small "cartoonish" broom appear on the end of the bed that was a couple feet away from the couch. It moved back and forth in a sweeping motion. However, I found it more interesting than scary.
I continued to watch that little broom until out of the corner of my eye I was something flying around. I looked over to my right and saw a equally small, equally cartoonish flying carpet. It seriously resembled that magic flying carpet in the Aladdin story. It hovered for awhile, but then started flying around the bed. At this point, I looked back to the broom to see if it was still there. It was still "sweeping..." I finally concluded that this was funny, but tried to shut my eyes to go to sleep.
I turned on my right side for awhile, and this is when I saw the third thing. Something black was crawling on the floor beside the couch. I guess you really couldn't call it crawling, it was more like loping. All I saw was its back. Then I saw another one. Then I saw another one. One-by-one, these small hunched figures passed by the couch. I don't know how many there were, but I'd say I saw about thirty pass by.
The room was mostly dark except for the moonlight shining in through the window, but I could still see those things. Their darkness was way blacker than the darkness in the room. After watching these things pass by the couch, I didn't know what to make of it. I was frozen with fear and began to break out in a cold sweat. I turned back on my back so I wouldn't see them anymore, but was still too scared to call my mom.
Finally, I mustered up enough courage to look to my right again. The figures were still passing by. I looked at the place where the broom had been sweeping. It had disappeared. The "magic carpet" had also disappeared.
That's when the fourth and final thing appeared. While those hunched figures were passing by the couch, out of the darkness an eye stated to appear. It was huge, it was menacing, it was ugly. It just stared at me while I stared back, terrified but too scared to call out to my parents. I stared back at it for a long time.
Then, it stated slowly growing bigger. I felt like it was going to kill me. I suddenly realized it wasn't getting bigger, it was just coming closer. At that moment, I shut my eyes only to open them a few seconds later to see if it was still there. It was. Finally, I kept my eyes closed for a long time. When I opened them, it was gone. The hunched figures had also vanished. Everything was back to normal except me. I was sweaty, scared, and about to cry.
Finally I called my mom. I called her numerous times, but she never heard me so I stopped calling. I couldn't move because I was still so scared. Finally I was able to go to sleep.
To this day, I don't know why it happened while I was so young. However, I did learn that my Dad's mother had a demonic experience in the same room one night when she was still alive. My mom heard her screaming and went in there to find her wide eyed and afraid of something that was in the room. So my mom prayed and she calmed down. I don't think my experience had anything to do with demons being in that room though. This is because I don't think demons are in that room. I think my experience happened as a test - a test that I failed. Because I was so young, I didn't know about praying to God. In fact, it never occurred to me that these strange things were in anyway related to satan. They were just scary.
However, I have since then come to realize just how scary satan is. I have also come to realize that my God is 100 times more powerful. Since then, there have been more experiences involving demons that have been usually as frightening. However, with God's help, I have been able to overcome these situations.
This eye has appeared to me one more time since that night. The second time it appeared to me, I was 13 years after the first appearance. I was taking a nap when all of the sudden I woke up. I looked out my window and saw that it was getting dark out. After this, I glanced up at the ceiling and that's when I saw it. A black form was hovering above me. It was like a blob. It had a form, but it didn't. It was all very strange. Because I have had similar experiences with demons, I immediately started to talk to God in my head.
Pretty soon, the oh so familiar paralysis set in and I felt like something was suffocating me. I didn't try to move because I knew it was hopeless. I kept my eyes open, and soon, the black form started to take the shape of an eye. This eye was the exact same eye mentioned above. It stared at me, and I got really scared then because I have never had the same thing appear twice to me. I immediately shut my eyes and started praying faster. I suddenly felt like I was being shocked. It hurt so much, but I couldn't fight it so I didn't try.
After awhile, it stopped. I didn't open my eyes however, and I'm glad I didn't. I began to feel something on my forehead. Someone was tapping their fingernail on my head. It was insistent and wouldn't stop. It hurt. I think the demon was trying to get me to open my eyes. I prayed and prayed for God to save me from this attack.
Finally, I tried saying the name of Jesus. However, I could hardly move my mouth. So I tried saying "Lord". Finally, I was able to get "lod" out and kept on saying it over and over out loud until my tongue could move more freely. Finally, everything stopped and I opened my eyes. Everything was back to normal.
The last time I had an experience, there was no eye. I was in my bed but couldn't sleep when suddenly I felt like I had been given a sleeping pill. I couldn't keep my eyes open and fell into a deep sleep. But before I fell asleep, I felt a shock run through my body.
A little while later, I woke up to the sound of growling beside my bed. It was a horrible sound and I was too scared to look over the side of the bed. Immediately I started praying. But as I started praying, I felt that shock and then felt like I was being made to fall asleep again. As soon as I started sleeping, I "woke up" in my mind. Maybe I was dreaming, but it felt like I was in my head. I was in a toy store and there was a baby doll and it was crying.
Suddenly, someone behind me told me to touch its finger. I didn't. They told me again to hold the doll's finger. I wouldn't. Finally I did and felt a shock like I have never experienced before. Then, everything changed. I was in the middle of a circle of... things. They were all around me telling me their names. Their names I cannot remember now, but then they said they were going to shock me again. So they did. I felt like I was going to die.
Suddenly, I remembered to cry out to God. I started saying "LORD" over and over again. I really meant to say, "Lord, please stop satan from trying to hurt and scare me" but all I could get out was "LORD". So over and over I repeated that name and gradually I woke up. I woke up saying, "Lord"
Now, when I think back to that time, I realize that it was a test. I had not been waking with the lord during that time. But still this experience reminds me that The Great Rescuer will always come to your aid. You have only to call his name.
