Anyone who has read my other stories about the place I currently live at will understand where this chapter comes from. It's an interesting revelation about one of the ghosts that inhabits my current apartment building.
For those who have no clue, I'm talking about a male entity, young (20-25 yrs) dressed in Vietnam era military clothing that has been haunting my building. He has a negative attitude, seems prone to scaring people and worse. I now have confirmation from other neighbors that they have seen the same figure, including just recently my husband. This story is what he recently experienced and how it ties into what I had experienced from this entity previously.
My husband asked me (sometime in June 2009) about the male military ghost in the apartment. He started describing this entity just as I've seen him. An angry young man, dressed in green military fatigues. I replied that is what I have seen of him. He then went on to explain that this entity seemed extremely angry and depressed, annoyed and infuriated at something. Then my husband grew quiet.
I explained that yes, this entity seemed to be very angry at something or someone, that I got the impression that a woman had caused all his pain and heartache and drove him to do something bad. Then I asked why he (hubby) was bringing this up.
After a few minutes of thought he told me that one day he was home watching TV (this was during his recent "unemployed" stent, so he wasn't in the greatest frame of mind to start - important to know in a second). But back to story - he felt overcome but strange emotions. He said he felt so overwhelmingly depressed that he seriously considered harming himself. He tried to brush it off, but it got worse, and then morphed into something else. He started to feel anger at me, that somehow I had caused all of his worries. From this point, he explained, even darker violent thoughts toward me and others circled his mind.
Then he explained he stopped - physically stopped what he was doing (smoking and staring into space) and realized that these weren't his thoughts. He normally doesn't turn this dark or violent, and most defiantly isn't self-detrimental like what was happening. He said then he "picked-up" on someone else around and realized these where their emotions. That's when he got the impression of the military man ghost. My hubby does know how to deal with things of this nature, but this caught him totally off guard. Once he "clamped" down his guard, the entity moved away.
I explained to my hubby after he finished that this was very similar of an occurrence I suffered from this same entity. Even though I suffer from depression, I'm usually not suicidal or the like. A good while ago, I went from my normal "dark" to fatal level. I started thinking strange thoughts and worse, started seeing a green military style belt hanging from the steam pipe in the bathroom of the apartment. As soon as I started seeing it, I became almost obsessed with the ideal of hanging myself from this belt.
Remarkably it was this thought and the clarity of the emotions and desires of the act that made me stop and consider what was happening. That's when I first picked up on this male entity and realized that these where HIS emotions and thoughts.
After I had become aware of him, it stopped like a switch and he (the ghost) became angry and I could tell it was more than just me. He was angry with women in general - I felt that he was driven to this act by some action of a women (or at least he thought he had been). This is when I had done my first major cleansing of the apartment.
My hubby (who hadn't heard this part before) said that we needed to do another cleansing now and keep it up and running.
This must be the first time I had experienced anything on a scale like this - I had worried that I was truly insane at one time - my brain was coming up with anything it could to defend itself, but now I had proof that this entity made be more capable of harm that just making sounds and shadows.
We are working on a full cleansing again and maybe seeking some help to remove this entity. The "scary evil" feeling that once came from the archway (read my previous story - New Apartment) is back. We have to leave a light on in the living room or the feeling is bad. As well as an increase of "shadow people" walking around.
