I'm 21 years old and I'm from Australia. I have had several experiences since I was a small child. The following story is about some of my experiences which I think may be connected and may mean that a dark entity or demon was following me as a child/teen.
Ever since I was a small child (I have been told by my mother) I've claimed to be scared of 'things' that I could see when I was alone in my bedroom or had to go into certain places at night/in the dark. Up until the age of 6 we lived with my grandmother and I would refuse to make the walk from the living room through the dark kitchen to go to the bathroom as I claimed 'it' would get me.
When I was 6 and my brother was 2 we moved down the street and into an old 3 bedroom house. At the back of the house was a bedroom with large windows taking up the whole of the southern wall. This was originally my brother's room. All was fine for a while until suddenly my brother would refuse to sleep in his bedroom because he claimed there was something in there. He would become hysterical if he had to go to bed there and often woke up through the night crying and scared. My parents decided I should swap bedrooms with my brother.
From the first night in my new bedroom I felt like I was being watched. I began to hear footsteps and noises in the hallway outside my bedroom door. When I heard these noises I would close my eyes and put my head under the cover, hardly breathing and willing whatever it was to go away. Sometimes when I woke up during the middle of the night (sometimes from hearing the noises other times not) I would look to the corner of my bedroom and see a dark figure. This would lead to me running from the room to my parent's bedroom. My parents dismissed it saying that I was imagining things and that the house was old. For years I woke up most nights and constantly felt like something was watching me.
I distinctly remember one particular occasion when I was about 9. I had woken up in the middle of the night for the usual reasons - shuffling/walking noises in the hallway outside my door. I lay in bed quietly with my head facing the door, peeking out of the covers - I couldn't see anything. The footsteps started to walk into my bedroom and towards me, though I still couldn't see anything there. A strange ominous feeling came over me like something bad was going to happen and I instantly got goose bumps, which had never happened before. I felt like there was something right there over me. This freaked me right out so I ran as fast as I could to my parent's bedroom.
I refused to go back to my bedroom so my parents allowed me to sleep in their bed. Normally when I went into my parents bedroom I became calm but this time I still felt scared that something was there watching me. In the corner of their bedroom was an armchair. Lying in the bed, I was directly facing the chair and I saw a distinct black figure with glowing green eyes staring at me. I flipped out and woke my mother up, telling her what I saw. She looked to the chair with me (I could still see it there) and said there was nothing, that it was the moonlight reflecting on something (there was nothing green there). I closed my eyes and tried to go back to sleep but I couldn't shake the feeling so I looked back at the chair and it was still there. At that time, for some reason I felt like it was laughing at me. I tucked my head under the covers and lay there silently, not able to fall asleep.
I continued to see the figure in the corner of the room and hear the footsteps and noises in the hallway right until we moved when I was 14. I should also mention that throughout the whole time we lived at that house I had mental/behavioral issues where I would become angry and go 'crazy' My mother said I would scream, become violent, destroy my own things and hurt myself during these episodes which she said was like I had been possessed. I never remembered anything that happened afterwards.
I had a few other experiences at my cousin's house also which may be connected and also some other experiences at the new house we moved to which I will talk about later if people are interested. I'm not sure if these experiences were the result of a dark entity or demon?
