A Growl In The Darkness


This is a true story that happened tonight. I was running around the house with my little brother. I was trying to get away from him because he kept jumping on me and I was trying to write. I ran upstairs into the small hallway. I was standing in front of my Grandmother's room, which was already open and the lights were off.

I was standing at the top of the stairs looking down at my brother saying something to him. Then I just happened to look over into my Grandma's room. When I did, I heard something growl loudly. It didn't sound like an animal, or any electronic device (such as an air conditioner, radio, etc.). It sounded just like a human growling as if they were mad.

I looked into the dark room, a little shocked. It all happened so fast. I ran very quickly down the stairs and knocked my brother out of the way. Soon, I was on the couch telling the story to my Grandparents.

My Papaw went upstairs and put a light in my Grandma's room. Then, he checked the whole room. There was no animal and no person in there. He came downstairs and told us that there was nothing in the room. So, I'm a little concerned to know what it could have been. I have heard of ghosts or demons growling, but I'm not sure. Please give me your opinion.

Hanna_Claire_Lector: If you suspect you are a medium, there are several steps you should take prior to meditation. Just do a little Googling and you'll find a lot of information on how to protect yourself psychically. If you find it difficult to hold your shields and meditate at the same time there are several crystals you can use that can help. Google is our friend. 😆

This has been YEARS and I'm not sure if you are even on here or not, but I recently had a similar experience. I recently got in to practicing meditation and I was in my living room by the fire. This room connects to the kitchen. I was trying to get rid of any bad energy in me and I heard this horribly, evil growl behind me. I haven't meditated since then and I'm afraid of what it might have been, My aunt is some sort of into the paranormal, and she truly believes I am some sort of 'medium'. This is because I have been around spirits since I was little. Anyways, I have a feeling it's still here whatever it is and I was looking for information online.

Growl back. That's what I'd do ^^ 😠 😲 😆


On second thoughts, I bet I'd run off and then I'd think of growling back later that night and regret not growling back and then I'd think of how scary it was and... Yea, maybe not ^^

Well...that was a long comment about nothing ^^

hey well I have had my experiences with ghosts but I just found this website today. Well that sounds like a man who was trapped in time and was reliving the time or day over and over again and can't get out. There is a slight chance it was a demon but don't freak out. You can always have a clensing if you have a priest come inspect your house but its a very slight chance! Don't do the clensing yourself because if you don't get rid of it then it will just make it angrier. Good luck and hope you get through this! 😁

My reason for the last post comes from my belief that ghosts are just one of many paranormal pawns used by evil entities to frighten, confuse, bewlider, oppress and sometimes take over a weakened person's soul. The young, the old, the sick (mental, spiritual and physical sickness), spiritually weak, etc. Do I think that there are good ghost and bad ghost? No I think that if something like this appears to be good, it is just patiently taking someone down a slow and methodical road to distruction. It is not healthy to dwell on the dead and we should spend more time in our short life on earth worrying about where will will spend eternity. I, myself, am not going to end up in some kids closet or in a damp basement. You don't have to either. If you like spirits, study the Holy Spirit and what it can do for your life here and eternally. Peace Out

They appear to young people more often because they are much less experienced and knowledgable which gives the entities a better chance that they will be naive and succeptable due to not knowing-not because young people are more open by choice. May be why many ghost hunters have trouble finding ghost.

I agree with jessi here spirits do prefer to communicate to younger people as they are more open to the suggfestion of spirits or "ghosts" whereas a lot of adults won't believe what they have seen.
Baring this in mind though if this thing was a demon I'd be cautious as they also find it easier to communicate with, damage or even possess younger people as they are weaker when younger.

I'm not really sure what you could do to be perfectly honest with you, I just hope you don't hear anything again or you may have a huge problem!

Good health and prosperity to you ❤

umm... FYI Jasmin!
Younger people are wayyy more sensitive than older people! I am really young to, and I have seen less, and less, as I get older! My 7 year old little brother sees all kinds of stuff. That's because they are more imaginative than adults, therefore spirits go to them more.

As for this entity, the way it manafested does sound demonic. Either way it is definataly a negative entity. It could be residual, and you have only WITTNESSED it one time, than there's nothing to worry about. Just let it go for now, but if anything else happens, it's time to take action. No worries until you feel threatened. That's when you need to do something.
Best of Luck! ❤

You seem pretty young. I wouldn't even do anything with whatever this is. If you have so much concern then make it known to your grandparents. Let them deal with it because you may be too young. "Things" tend to easily manipulate younger people, so just don't even mess with this.❤ Jasmin

As much as I hate to say this, I think its a demon. Unless its a ghost trying to scare you. Most of the time its bad when it grawls. I have heard that sound alot. Try your best to not fear it. Good luck and God bless. O if you feel scared for no reason or you hear it again, rebuke it.

whatever it was didn't like you, that musch is certain. I would recommend wearing a cross whenever you're in that area of the house.
I don't pretend to be an expert on demons, but if you think you have one it would be a good idea to try to get rid of it. If you just ignore it it might get very nasty. Of course, on the other hand I wouldn't jump to the conclusion that it was a demon. If anything else happens that makes it seem demon-ish, though, I would say it probably is one. Good luck with this! 😉
