This past February I had a strange and somewhat terrifying experience in room 202 at the Little River Casino in Manistee, Michigan. In the suite was my brother and his wife, me and my children ages 8 and 9. I awoke around 3:30 in the morning to the sensation of a pressure on my side, kind of pushing me down. I thought it might be one of my daughters pushing me down. I raised my arm out to try to push off whatever was on top of me. I felt something substantial, but definitely not either one of my kids. It was at that time I began to get frightened.
I was laying on my side so I turned my head to my right shoulder to get a glimpse of what was on top of me. I saw a large dark funnel of no substantial shape. I heard a mocking laugh. I struggled, to no avail. I decided to let the entity know that they should get off of me in the name of Jesus Christ. The funnel suddenly hit the ceiling and disappeared.
There I was; very frightened, hoping it was a dream. I decided to switch sides on the bed. I woke nobody up, as I felt like my sister-in-law would think I was nuts and I didn't want to scare my kids. So I tried going back to sleep. This is when I felt hands all over the front of me, pushing and pulling. I knew I was sleeping when the second attack began as the sensations began to wake me up.
I cried out, and this woke my sister-in-law. She said she looked over at me in bed and saw that I had a dark figure over me with its "arms" wrapped around me. My brother then heard my cry, turned on the light and asked me if I was okay. I told him that I was definitely not okay. My sister-in-law told my brother what I saw, and I told him what I experienced. Unfortunately, we were looking at another night in the same room already paid for. Thus, I didn't sleep and basically played "night watchmen". I was ready with my camera should the entity return. The only thing that happened was my daughter crying in her sleep and I could see nothing bothering her from my viewpoint.
I would like to clarify I was on no medications, had not drunk any alcohol during this trip. This was the scariest thing to ever happen to me, and because of what my sister-in-law witnessed as I cried out leads me to believe it may be paranormal. My concern is, will other people suffer this same malady in that room? I definitely believe it was malevolent. Another question I am left with is, is this the attack from a "shadow person"? My best friend told me I should have asked for a different room. I was too worried the staff would think I was crazy!
The Little River Casino is a somewhat new casino, and I am not aware of any history with the place.
