The Unexpected Visitor


-Please note that names have been changed for personal reasons-

My paranormal experience took place last January when my family had first moved into our new five bedroom house. I had hated the house ever since I had first laid eyes on it. It wasn't the particular style or colour scheme of the house, but something was telling me that it was bad. But, unfortunately my parents thought it was great and were surprised to find that it had an amazingly low price tag. (Houses in my area fetch about $900,000 for a 5 bedroom house. Subtract about $400,000 and you're looking at how much it cost) the real estate owner was quick to accept our offer and by January we had moved it.

I had been given the smallest bedroom of the house which faced a particularly boring section of the yard. A huge tree blocked any possible sunlight and, though I hadn't noticed then, nothing ever grew in that part of the garden. One day when my friend Kate* (changed for personal reasons) had came over for a sleepover (which was about a week after moving in) I had prepared a movie marathon with a large variety of food. She arrived at 4:30pm and we fell asleep at around 3:00am. Nothing unusual had happened. At around 4:00am I woke up after having a terrible nightmare that I was being chased by a huge shadowy figure. I got out of bed, tiptoed around Kate, and went downstairs to get a drink. I entered the kitchen poured myself a glass of orange juice and sat at the kitchen counter. My friend then came in and froze. "Sorry did I wake you?" I asked, but she didn't reply. I turned around to see that several of the kitchen cupboards were opening by themselves. My friend fell to the floor in dead faint. I quickly poured the remainder of my orange juice on her face which woke her up. We sat on the floor watching cupboard doors open and close. Then at 5:00am it stopped. Shaken we went back to bed, but we didn't sleep.

The next day both of us were still shaken by the previous night's events and by midday we had dismissed it as a dream that we both had- The hours passed and eventually it became dark again and we settled down to sleep. This time I awoke to see a tall figure walk across my room and disappear out of the window. I woke Kate up and we looked out of the window nothing. We turned around suddenly to see a small figure sit down on top of my bed. I tried to scream but my voice was caught in my throat. Then I heard it speak.

"Comeeeee herrreee..."

"Teresaaaaaaa...come hereeeee... We neeeeddd you..."

"Katttttteeeee...teressssaaa...helllllp ussssss... Helllppp ussss."

The small figure then disappeared and the small collection of brick a brack on my dresser flew off and hit the opposite wall. The table which held my computer and books tipped over and my bed began to shake violently. This time I did scream. My brother was the first to come.

"What is the matt..." he broke off in mid sentence. My advanced algebra mathematics books flew off the ground and flew towards his head. He missed it by millimeters. I felt a sudden pain on my right arm and I looked down to see a number of small bite-like marks appear in front of me and my friend. She screamed and my parents came into the room. Everything then stopped. The bite marks faded and then disappeared. My parents took one look at my room before beginning to yell at me. I just stood there as my friend began to cry. I looked pass my parents and saw the large shadowy figure. It looked as if it was laughing at me.

This sort of activity went on for about a month before it was followed by large banging's that were heard on the walls when I entered the room. My dog also died a week later. I found her body over the dead side of the lawn, the section that my window overlooked. Apparently, she died of a heart attack which was strange since she was 2 years old and perfectly healthy. I also discovered a week later that someone had been leaving me little presents in little piles under my bed. Dead rats, leaves, twigs, egg shells, even a cat at one stage. But, I cannot blame this on my 'visitor' because it may have been my brother playing a horrible prank.

About 3 weeks later, the activity took a more sinister twist. I woke up to find a number of large scratches on my back, large enough to be dog scratches. They were gone by the day's end, but not before Kate got to see them. This continued for the rest of the week, followed by horrible dreams.

Kate had agreed to come over to my house - though it took a lot of persuading- so we could discuss what I could do. The visitor apparently wasn't happy with the idea because as soon as we approached the subject, the light bulb above us burst. So we went into another room, and that too burst. Draws pulled open, rugs shifted positions and hung themselves over ceiling fans, chairs we pulled onto tables and stacked in piles, and dishes were thrown out of cupboards and smashed onto the ground. We both screamed and ran out of the house. My parents were soon to follow. We all ran into the back yard and stood as we watched objects fly around pass the windows and smash onto floors. The dead grass patch (where my dog died) began to smell like a mixture between horse manure and rotting meat.

Objects still, to this day are flying around. I still hear voices, often calling my name, saying stuff like they need help, or want me to come play. I have tried to record these but my recorder always 'fails at the appropriate time.' I believe my visitor has something to do with this. All electrical equipment always fails when I try to record it in any way. What should I do? Should I tell my parents to organize a priest to bless the house? I need help. I don't know how longer my family can survive.

If you believe that you can help, please contact me. Anything is helpful. God bless you all.

Hey everyone.
Just wanted to give an update of what's being happening. Firstly, my family have moved out of the house, but the activity has seemed to follow us. It was calm until about a couple of weeks ago when it began to attack visitors and myself (biting, scratching, etc.) and stealing stuff from them.

We have made friends with the local church, and when I did try to enter the church for the first time, an elderly lady started screaming and pointing at me, calling me the devil or Satan. She eventually fainted and when she woke up she had no recollection of what happened. The priest told me that I was strange and that he could see something following me. I of course, left and haven't returned since. I was so scared. (and still am.)

I have also discovered, that whenever I am around babies, small children or animals they go crazy. I went to the zoo with my family not long ago, and well, it didn't go down well. They all went crazy. 😨
Small children and babies tend to start screaming when I enter the room.

I have to admit, I did try the Ouiji board.- and I followed ladedudum's advise- Nothing good came of it. I spent half an hour waiting for it, and when it did speak it said a bunch of random letters. One section was for example:
"A niwy out" - which could be the jumbled up form of 'i want you.'
The candles started flickering crazily, so I pulled the counter to GOODBYE. The next day I chucked the board in a nearby river. 😐

Its not getting any easier. I'm afraid that its starting to get to me. I can't sleep and the doctor says I have insomnia.

Any advise? Anything is good!

Yours sincerely
DracoItalia ❤ xxx

hi! I suggest that you get your house exorcised before anything gets really worse.

I strongly believe that this is the work of an elemental which we call here in the philippines, duwende or dwarf. Some are good and some are not. Here in the philippines we do a ritual here to ward off those bad elements. We call it tawas. Please see, <>;.

When my son was, young we had him exorcised by a witch doctor or what we call the albularyo. The reason for that is because my son keeps on staring on something in his crib and would pick up something unseen then will cry afterwards with small bites in his hand. He had a fever for 3 days and as per his pedia he is OK. So we sought help from the albularyo and it was found out that a dwarf is playing with him. She adviced my grandmother to burn "kamangyan" which is the resin of an almasiga tree every wednesday and friday every 6 in the evening for 9 weeks. Then every friday night after the incense ritual, I would offer 3 pcs of hard boiled eggs and a glass of water. Together with the offering I burned a white candle so that they will stop playing with my son. Every saturday morning, I will look at the plate and there is no more hard boiled egg and water. Funny thing is, we have no pet animals in the house so there is no way that it will be eaten by an animal.

So just a piece of advice, please have your house exorcised. Take the happenings at your place seriously.

God Bless you.

Google Fatrer Andrew Calder or look for the Swords of Saint Michael website on the internet. They will know someone in your area trained to help. It is a spiritual issues tha needs a spiritual solution. They will also begin praying for you right away. I am not one to jump straight to the diabolical often. But if it indeed contributed to your dog's death and moved all the heavy furniture around, it is not your common ghost or poltergeist. Get the righ help. No spirit communication unless you are praying to God in Jesus name. Get a Bible, read it, leave it open on your nightstand. If you are of strong Christian faith you could rebuke it in Jesus name, just be prepared to continue doing that until God delivers you the victory. You cannot do this on your own, it is Christ that strengthens you to do it. Get help.

First of all I want to thank you all for your amazing helpful advice. To answer the question posed by Pjod my parents admitted to me not that long ago that they had been witness to such strange happenings and thought it was best to ignore them. This, alas, was a bad idea because, as you read, it got worse. They are also considering getting a divorce - strange since they were perfect before we moved into the house. 😭 Activity is still happeneing, each morning I wake up to several scratches on my arms, but they always fade or the camera 'mysteriously breaks' before I have the chance to get some hard proof of it. 😐 As you magine, such riots (as what happen towards the end of my recount) have continued to happen periodically - usually once every two weeks. I aim to get a priest into the house to bless it. I have also questioned the history of the house and found out- thanks to a neighbour- that the previous owners left suddenly at midnight. This raises lots of questions, mainly why? Apparently the first neighbours did the same. I haven't been able to speak to any of the actually neighbours because most of them are dead/ in ageing care or have moved overseas.

I will not be using a ouiji board. I have heard a lot of messed up tales about how it has gone wrong or made things worse.

Again I thank you all for your advice, and please submit any more questions or advice. Everything helps.

Yours truely

And last, sift through this link, there's an entry there that shows of a bad experience with the elemental. Keep an open mind, these elementals have been known to inhabit houses too.

- I came across this story and it roughly describes the ritual I mentioned in my comment

we have that here in the Philippines. Stories about "dwarfs" good and bad. The good ones protect the house while the bad ones do exactly like you described.
I have never seen them but the old folks here have a lot to say about them
1) do not eat the food that they offer you -they say that they will try.
2) Appease them with offering (food, burn candles etc.)
3) Know the spot where they reside, normally it's a spot in the house, a specific post in the house, a specific corner etc. Offer them salt there.
4) burn incense for a week, around the house at 5 pm and let the smoke billow, pray during this time "we call that 'Palina' here, it's a ritual.
5) I don't think this is a spirit or ghost, I really think you are dealing with a nasty elemental.
-google dewende or duwende. It might be useful.

Is it possible to speak to the previous owners find out a bit of history? If you don't mind me asking where abouts in Australia is this house? I believe there definitely is something malevolent residing there and it is obviously doing more then getting your attention a blessing of the house could work along with a whole lot of other options you could try. I really wouldn't try using the ouija board if not familiar with it it will no doubt add more fuel to the fire. What are your parents thoughts on all this activity? All the best!

Thank you for sharing.

Hey there.

I know this sounds a bit off, but if under done right, its safe. I say, do a Ouiji board. Now I bet people are probably screaming at me in their heads, but it is the easiest way to communicate with the dead.

But you HAVE to be EXTREMELY careful! If done wrong, you could make you situation a lot worse.

You need to first say a prayer, asking for protection, and to forbid all evil spirits from the board and from hurting you. You then need to light two candles and place the in front of the board, make sure that there are no windows open, fans on, ect - No way of the candles blowing out or flickering. The candles will determine wether or not the spirit is good. Spin the counter - Or whatever you want to call it, glass, shot glass, ect: The thing you put your fingers on - around three times in a circle covering the board then ask if there is anybody there and take it from there.

If the candle flickers (a lot) or blows out, then pull the counter straight to goodbye. Make sure you NEVER ask about yours or somebody else's future, and if you feel like you shouldn't ask something, then don't. Once you are finished, pull the counter to goodbye and burn the board.

Sometimes if you keep the board inside a house, the spirit you talked to will stay with you, waiting for you to use it again.

Oh - And do not anger the spirit by yelling, mocking it, ect. You want to stay calm at all times, and try doing it at night as the atmosphere is clearer, and it is easier for the spirit to communicate then.

Ohx2 - Make sure you have someone writing what the spirit spells out on the board, you need at least two people on the board, so either have another person there, or have one of you write it. Sometimes the letters are jumbled or they spell out long sentences, so writing it down is a good way of recording it all.

Ohx3 - Be careful about what you think, because sometimes spirits can 'read' your thoughts, and use them as answers. Say, if you ask the spirit to prove it's self by spelling out your middle name, then you think it, it will take your thought and use it. It will answer what you want it to answer if you allow that to happen.

If you have any more questions - email me,
Contact.isabellajames [at]

Have fun, be safe.

Wow! It would take a minister truly ordained and prayed through to do battle with that. If it's that bad. No wonder it sold that low and that fast. Burning sage or uttering a few words by someone not annointed in the spirit would probably just piss him (or what ever it is) off. It sounds like it's a good movie in the making though. Where's M. Night Shyamalan when you need him?

Sounds to me like some major demonic activity. Someone was real happy to get this house off their hands. For a quick fix, play the following recording THROUGHOUT the house daily. Whatever evil there is will depart. Just as terrifying as its dealings with you are, likewise is the sound of these verses to the evil entities. Good Luck

yeah I would seriously consider getting blessed along with your house maybe even exorcise the place I mean if what you say is true I don't see it getting much worse.

Well that's not true cause if it can do that just like that I'm not sure what it could do when its angry.

As for it saying "help 'us'" yet it harms you. Either its trying to trick you or something is holding them there but if that was the case I don't get them being able to talk to you as often as you say.

Also what about your parents did they really never seen/hear/feel anything?

so, what exactly have your parents been doing about this intense activity?
The behavior of everyone involved seems a little off, so to speak, as described by you, when confronted with such terror. I understand that translation is easily misunderstood on a message board. I am not saying you are being less than truthful.
I am curious about what your parents have had to say, and do, all this time.
