As I told Rhodes68, I was having a bad feeling before going to sleep last night after reading one of her stories. I made sure I calmed myself down before trying to go to sleep. I knew my mind would play tricks on me, thinking I might have seen something go by my bed or something like that. But what happened was no stretch of my imagination. I even had to bring my dog in as I know she has "seen" things before, but I will go ahead and tell you that she was no use other than just taking up space on my bed.
So I find myself starting to calm down, and I decide to turn off my television and try to get some sleep. I'm laying there for about 15 minutes or so when I hear this strange thud. It happened at 4:50 am. I know because I immediately looked at my clock and decided to take note of this occurrence. My heart started pounding a little. And this very strange feeling comes over my body. It feels like every inch of my bones are being pushed outward from inside me. I assumed something must have fallen, or there was an equally good explanation. I disregarded the sound and even the strange feeling I had and tried to go back to sleep. It sounded as if it came from the garage which is about 15 yards away from my room.
I have lived in this house for almost 8 years coming this October, and I have NEVER heard a noise like this. I am very familiar with the noises my house makes. I wouldn't even be telling you all this if it was the only occurrence of course, as it could be easily disregarded as a normal noise and just my imagination getting the best of me. But just as I got done telling this Mickey guy to be careful what he asks for, I ignored my very own advice. Thinking I was brave enough I began to ask (in my head, not aloud), "If this is some kind of spirit please make that noise again, so that I know it wasn't a random occurrence..." I also began to pray, "God, if this IS a spirit, please don't let it enter my room, harm, touch, or manifest itself in my presence..."
Before I could even finish the last word of my prayer the loud thud happens once more. I literally started shaking uncontrollably and began praying again. It came at about 4:54 am. This is the first time since I have moved in this house that I prayed for the "ghost blanket". I could still feel the presence of something as I prayed. I began feeling cold gusts of wind, and yes my fan is ALWAYS on, but this wasn't just a gust from the fan it was very different.
It was also accompanied by extremely hot flashes. I almost broke out in a sweat. I began to take off my shirt, and not just because of the hot flashes. I have a cross tattoo on my back, and I thought it would hinder off any bad spirits. I made sure it was visible and then began to calm down a little. I knew I shouldn't have asked for such a thing if I was not ready to hear this spirit communicate, and I immediately regretted my decision. I hear my dog kind of whimper, but this was in the back of my mind, because I am still feeling very uneasy at the moment. My eyes stayed open until sunrise.
And if THAT wasn't enough, as I am laying there still very afraid, I hear something in my head. I don't know if any of you have ever been spoken to by a "higher power", but every time I have heard a voice it seems to come from inside my head. And the voice, in a loud whisper, says, "You have been chosen..." I FREAK! I immediately begin to ask over and over again. "Chosen for what? Chosen for WHAT?" And then I hear, "You will see..." This occurred at 5:15 am. I don't know what this means, and I am scared to find out.
Has anyone ever had this kind of thing happen to them? I am still very scared, and I'm not sure what to do about this right now. I don't know if I could handle being a medium or anything like that. Is there anyway to get over this fear of spirits? I don't even think that's what it meant, but I am still very scared of what it COULD mean. I guess I will find out in my own time, but if any of you have some help to offer, PLEASE tell me anything and everything you can, preferably from personal experiences or from something you have heard similar to this. ALL opinions are welcome though. I hope I didn't bring these things into my house.
On the lighter side, I was able to fall asleep shortly after the sun came up, and I didn't have any bad dreams. I don't exactly remember any of them, but I know they weren't anything disturbing. Thank you all for reading and God bless
