This is more of a plea for help than a story, so please, if there is anyone who may be able to help me with this I would be forever grateful. I moved into a old house, some 5 years ago, out of desperation, so that I did not have to tote my son the 15 miles one way to High School 5 days a week. I swore to myself that this was only temporary, but even after his graduation from High School 2 years ago, I am still stuck here, because of financial reasons.
Since childhood, I have always been sensitive to spirits, and it has become even more pronounced the older I get. The house that I am in, I have always sensed a presence, and I know that one is here. I hear the footsteps at night, walking through my kitchen, and living room, and then they're just gone. It sounds like heavy boots, and a long stride, very creepy, not scary, just creepy. I hear noises like something fell, but when I check, nothing is there. I always feel watched, like it's quietly watching every move that I make. The other day, I was standing at my sink washing dishes, and I felt something touch my side, like a poke, as if it just wanted me to be aware of it's presence, almost child-like, wanting attention. I see the dark shadows, moving quickly by me, and when I look directly at it, they are gone. All of this is fine, because I do not feel threatened by it, and the situation is livable, but creepy.
My Niece lived with be for a short time, and it scared her. She said that the door knob in her bedroom would move, as if someone was trying to get into her room. She said that it would wiggle, not turn, just wiggle, and I would have to deal with her being scared out of her mind at night. My son also dealt with some scary things here before he moved out and joined the Army. But to this day, he refuses to tell me about them, because he's afraid that he will scare me, which he is probably right.
Now, this is what I am dealing with inside my house, but what is outside, I am horrified of. I don't want to sound insane, and no, I am not writing this from the inside of a Mental Institution. The presence that's outside my house has just showed up, and has been here for only about 3 weeks now. The only way I can describe what it feels like, is pure Evil. I am scared to death of it, and horror consumes me when I have to go out there. I leave very early in the morning to work, at 3:30am, so it is very dark. There are mornings that I feel it is not out there, then there are mornings that I feel it, like it is watching me from my fence line (I live in a rural area).
It has made itself known to me. It started off at first like a distinct whistle. The second thing it did almost caused me to have a heart attack, and I'm not exaggerating. That morning, I had gotten up for work. I have a Hound Dog that I keep inside my house with me, so the first thing that I do when I get up in the mornings is put my Dog outside to go to the bathroom. That morning, my Dog would not leave my porch. He would bark, and growl out into the darkness. I opened the door, and the hair on his neck was standing straight up, and he ran back into my house like he was scared, and did not stop until he was under my bed. I thought maybe a Coon or Possum was out there, and he was scared of it.
After about 20 minutes, my Dog went back to the door, wanting outside, so I opened the door, and he would not go out, and I had to push him outside. Again, he would not leave the porch, and stood there bristled up, growling into the darkness. I opened the door, and he ran into the house again. I was not scared, just confused by the way my Dog was acting. Now it came time for me to leave for work.
I turned off all the lights, and walked down my sidewalk, through my front gate, and got into my car. I put my keys into the ignition, and was fumbling for the headlight switch, which for some reason I could not find. My car window was down about half-way, but my door was shut. From the dark area that my Dog had been so frightned of, about 50 feet in front of my car, I heard a sound that I have never heard before. It sounded like it was right in my ear doing this , and it sounded like someone was blowing on a duck call, but very baritone and strange sounding. It was so loud it made my ears hurt. It scared me so bad, I felt like my heart was up in my neck, and I suddenly got this awful headache. I started my car, and my entire body was shaking to the point I could hardly press the gas accelerator. I backed up, and finally found the headlights on my car, and turned them on, pointing them into the direction of the noise. I saw nothing.
A week later, I got this phone call that was strange. It was my best friend calling me, as that's what my caller ID showed. I answered the phone, said "hello", and this very faint voice of a man came on and said "hello". It sounded like he was a million miles away, with a static like sound. I detected a slight accent, like he may have been Hispanic. I asked him who he was, and after a long pause, he said "who is this". I got very freaked out, and almost hung the phone up, but told myself not to. I asked him if he had the wrong number, and he said "no", then the line went dead. I immediately called my fried back, and asked her if she had just tried to call me, and she said "yes", but the phone was doing something weird. She said that it was making this sound, like static blaring from a TV, and sound was fading in and out. She wanted to know what was going on with my phone.
Now, I don't know if this had anything to do with all of these other things, but it was weird. I don't know what is going on at my house, and why all of this is happening. I am really scared, to the point all I can do is sit on my couch after dark, and brace myself for something to happen. I feel almost like what's outside, wants in, and it's feeding off my fear, like it's enjoying it. I have not done anything to draw whatever this is to me. I even went to the extreme of getting Olive Oil, and praying, while sprinkling it around my house, inside and out. Whatever it is, I want it to leave me alone, but it won't.
PLEASE, anyone who can help with this, or can tell me why this is happening, please do. I have a fear, because my Son is due to go to Iraq in September, something is trying to warn me of a pending doom with him. If anyone can read into this situation, and knows about this stuff, please tell me. I am horrified.
