Black Mass at the End of the Bed


I cannot remember this incident as I was only 6 or 7. My parents tell it to me because it really freaked them out at the time. Now my parents are the kind of people that just don't get spooked by anything.

It was in my childhood home and I had a room to myself. Now for a week, apparently, I would wake up in the middle of the night screaming and crying. Of course my parents would rush in to see what the hell was going on. Only to find me hysterical, saying that the monster was at the end of my bed! As usual my parents thought it was just child nightmares. Or maybe our cat had walked into my room.

But one night, as I woke up again, hysterical, just my dad came but this time, he tells me he peeked through the gap in the door before walking in. And he says all he saw was a black mass at the end of my bed. Of course, as he opened the door to go in it disappeared!

After awhile I slept through the night. What ever it was had left. To this day, he can't explain it and admits he was freaked out. A lot of weird things have happened to me or my family. Quite strange.

It could have been a lot of things. The eyes are always under a lot of stress, taking things in, processing data. The fact he was peeking through a crack doesn't make things much better. And honestly, darkness can in fact be "blotchy". Also, children are like that a lot anyways. I haven't spoken to a single married friend who has had a kid who hasn't had at least one night crying about one thing or another.

It could be an acumulation of bad energy. Is there any problems at your home? Really stressing and full of hatred promblems? It's just a suggestion.

In our home lately there are several " appearances of a very tall " man " in black walking in and through our home and our neighbors. My son is 17 and 6'3. He is 280 lbs. Not much scares him. He asked me to move or pray with him because this tall dark thing that everyone had seen was leaning over him and woke him up. We prayed. Also a little boy in a pinstriped suite appeared once and the nieghbors 3 year old child says he plays with him. I do not believe in any ghosts but one. The Holy Ghost. I have seen this thing and I set our dogs after it. Yes it vanished but I believe because he could run really fast. Some are afraid, some are not. I am not. I think people like to play tricks on people. I believe the mind plays tricks also. I know that a lot of people are credible witnesses here and abroad. I think the things that are seen could be " malicious pranks" or malicious demons or bad choice of a midnight snack. Either way there is cause for concern. If the veil is thinning or tearing away between this world and the spiritual, true christians know what that means and are not afraid. If it is Demons having a lark, Be afraid be very afraid. You could do what we do and pray to Jesus for protection. This takes TRUE FAITH. With this It does work. If you go looking for dark you find it. If you look for the light you find it. Try to stay on the side of light. Turn off the scarey movies.

It doesn't quite sound like a shadow being...ummm...I've heard of this "Black Mass" before.
They appear seemingly unexpectedly.
