This is my first shared experience on this site. I suppose I'll start with a more recent encounter. This happened a couple years ago...
I was on a date with my boyfriend at the time. Let's call him Eric. We only dated for about six months, and he was very into the spiritual world and energy work, and was extremely intuitive. One of the most psychic people I've met. Unfortunately at the time he was also struggling to break free from the last bits of depression that had been with him most of his life, as well as some other issues. We were out having dinner together and I was dressed up in a sexy little red dress. (A big deal for me because I'm usually a jeans kind of girl.)
Well, we were at a TGI Friday's, and it was a Friday night so it was really busy. Packed with people, really noisy, people talking and laughing... We were seated at a corner table, and the only thing behind me was a window and a potted plant. I even had my chair scooted in a bit more than normal because it was a small corner. (Don't worry; this will all be relevant soon.)
I was in mid-sentence holding a forkful of food and laughing, when all of a sudden I got this weird sort of goose bumps/raised hairs kind of feeling and I realized that I was hearing whispering in my right ear. A really lustful, sinister kind of whispering with a lot of snakelike S's in it. By the time I realized I was actually hearing it, it had stopped. This all happened in about a second. And then I felt two big strong male hands grab my shoulders in a very firm and suggestive way!
I screamed at the top of my lungs, leaped out of my seat and whirled around yelling, "WHAT WAS THAT?! What WAS that?!" Nothing was around me of course, and all the people in the entire room went silent and the woman at the table near me dropped her fork and stared at me with her mouth hanging open.
Embarrassed, I said, "I'm okay, it's alright," and sat back down. But I could feel the presence hovering behind me and quickly got up again and switched to the opposite side of the table. Eric was of course wondering what on earth was going on, so I filled him in. His eyes got big, and he said, "Well, right before you jumped up and screamed I saw this sort of light or mist dart behind you really fast!"
We worked silently together at clearing the energy and lightening the mood because I could feel it trying to come at me again a few times. "You're letting it antagonize you. Don't let it in," he told me. I worked hard at feeling calm and assertive, and things started to feel better. The waiter came up behind me to refill my water and I nearly jumped out of my skin! Needless to say, I was extremely jittery the rest of the night.
It was a couple weeks later that Eric called me to inform me that he'd discovered (during a session of this specific type of energy work he'd been learning) that he's had an entity following him that has been giving him unhealthy obsessions with lust. I told him then that I had felt this strong slimy sense of lust emanating from that spirit when it touched and whispered to me at the restaurant! What a creepy experience!
And really? A TGI Friday's? That's not exactly the kind of place where you assume that something paranormal is going to happen to you. It was such a feeling of violation to me, as well as a disturbing wake-up call about how very real and powerful the spirit world is!
I couldn't sleep with the lights off for a few days after that, and it took me about a week and several conversations with a different psychic friend of mine to calm me down and get me feeling secure again. Reading stories on here, it seems that many of you have been physically touched by spirits, ghosts, or demons. It amazes me to know that this is so common!
