Monster In The House


When I was a little girl I lived in an old building that my dad turned into our home. We lived downstairs and there were apartments upstairs it was not uncommon to here strange noises during the day or night.

For about a week my four year old brother would wake up screaming that the monster was going to take him away. Whether he slept during the day or night, he would wake up screaming the same thing.

One night my mom heard someone running down the hall from where my sister and I slept. So she got up to see if one of us was sick. When she got to the door she saw a white figure coming at her as it passed her it lifted up and went around the corner into the bathroom and vanished through the wall. My mom grabbed her bible and started praying.

The next day our minister came to our house and blessed the house. Since the blessing my brother stopped having dreams about the monster after that. BUT I DID!

It became a normal thing for me to see things in that house, and to have dreams of a little boy telling me when bad things were going to happen. I still have dreams about that old building and they are never good ones even though it has been torn down now it still haunts me.

Sometimes I think what ever was there followed me. Some good, some bad, but I have learned to live with it as I have gotten older.

I had my worst nightmares as a child as many kids do. I had a few when pregnant but of course chalked that up to hormonal overload. Sounds like there was enough trauma in that place for it to be haunted. I don't know if you picked up on whatever was there and dreamed about but it's possible. Your mother seeing the white form sounds like residual haunting as well but still is shocking when one witnesses it.
To zoejet:
I have never read of a child disappearing forever in a closet. Ususally they find out it was someone very real who is the monster. Are there portals to another dimension? Who is to say? I just don't believe in closet monsters that abduct children.

Children are extra sensitive to the supernatural that is around all of us. This could be the reason that the three of you kids had such a bother with this thing. When I thought about it, nothing good came to me, so I'm really glad they tore the building down. If it HAS happened to follow you for some reason, I would pray about it and wear a protective charm of some sort.

well your brother may have been dreaming of somthing to come, you also may be dreaming of somthing to come. Now I don't know if any one know about this but, a long time ago a boy was always picked on by his brother because he kept saying there was a monster in his closet. One day his brother and his brother's friends locked him in his closet. The little boy kept yelling out the monster going to get him. When his sister told their mother, she came to tell them to let the boy out. When they open the door, he was not there. I don't even thing they know today what happen to him. This is a true story also.

Well, this is just a theory but it could be a embodiment of all the negative stuff that has happened there. The monster I mean.

Hmmm... It sounds like something really bad. Did you ever look into the history of the house?
I can't really give you advice, wear a cross or some form of safety charm maybe that could help you with all the bad stuff
Good Luck ❤

I should have mentiond that one of the renters, upstairs had also seen the same figure that night. She said that her daughter, who was the same age that I was, was screaming in her sleep when she went to her this thing was floating over her, and she started praying and it went through the wall, underneith her bedroom was our hallway. My mom truely think this was a demon. Thank you for reading. 😁

I really don't know what to say about this. I've often wondered about children who get scared of monsters in their closets, under their beds, etc., and I've wondered if they speak the truth. I'm thinking that it could possibly be a demon. Not quite sure though and I could be wrong.
