In 2008, I discovered that a friend of mine has a sixth sense. She sees ghosts on a regular basis, usually unhappy ones, and the occasional demon.
I was curious to see what would happen if the two of us scanned my house for ghosts, so we turned all the lights off and searched. We didn't find anything on the upper floor except for a silhouette of a tall man wearing a hat. He lingered in my sister's room, which had been vacant for the past month since she'd gone to college. I knew right away this ghost was the one who made the floorboards in the hallway creak. I knew it wasn't just the house settling because the sound came with a presence.
There was nothing on the main floor, which consists of our kitchen, dining room and living room. But as soon as we entered the basement I heard her gasp. I asked her what she saw, and my friend described a being with six legs (or arms) with human hands, and you can't tell which part of his body is front or back.
Needless to say we were deeply disturbed, and I was terrified of the possibility of it being an evil demon.
My friend and I confronted these spirits, asking them to go back to the place they originally came from. The man left waving goodbye, but the six legged being didn't. I asked it if it was good or bad, and my friend said it was neither good nor bad. It was just itself, an answer like a cat or a dog might communicate if they could talk. I felt much safer knowing this. My friend sensed this being did not have a human intelligence, but more like an innocent animal.
I asked it if it lived here and it confirmed yes.
I have named this being Jinx, because of the six appendages. Jinx is friendly, but it still makes me uneasy. I'm just not used to this sort of thing. Sometimes I have visions of Jinx.
In January of 2009, I had a vision whilst napping, of Jinx in the bathroom. I think this was significant because it had never been anywhere else in the house but the basement.
Our floorboards have stopped creaking since that man left. I think he mistook my sister's bedroom for a spare room for visitors.
I'm glad my sister is back, and I'm glad to not be scared of certain things anymore.
