I Felt It Smile


This is my first story and also the first time I ever really saw a ghost/demon. Usually I sense ghosts like where it's standing but not this time. This time I saw it. It was around 11:30 when the thing showed up. I was watching T.V when I was told to put my pajamas on just incase if I fall asleep.

I was going to my room, while keeping my guard up just in case I felt it. I had started feeling it on my birthday, and at first I hadn't understood what that feeling was so I had found out online and found I was psychic or whatever you call it. Anyway, I'm not the type to get scared easily I'll flinch but I was never ready for what I saw. Nothing popped out, nothing attacked me but as I was changing into my p.js I looked up and saw something black on my bed.

At first, I thought it was just Kisa, my one year old Chihuahua or Petey another one of my Chihuahuas but then I look again. It was big and was standing on my bed looking at me. It was grinning I could tell it was somehow, and I felt evilness radiating from it and I did what came as instinct I ran, screaming. I latched onto my dad and wouldn't let go until I finally calmed down. I told him what I had seen. He partly believed me before my mom asked, coming from the bathroom what that scream had been about.

My dad told her and as always she didn't believe me. My mother doesn't believe in supernatural stuff and she thought I was still afraid ever since I had watched Paranormal Activity which I had watched last November which would make me a flat-out coward but anyways. That was the first time I actually saw something instead of sensing. Comment to see what you think. Was it a good idea to run away? Am I a crazy person because I'm sensing it right next to me and I have a bible? And should I be mad because it's bothering me because I am really angry that it's doing this to me. Please I am going insane.

That reminds me of when I first saw a ghost/demon. It really scared me plus I felt the evilness inside it so I ran up stairs to my dad's room. (I was a little back then) My dad didn't believe in the supernatraul so he said that there was no monster down there.
Later when I was 12 I saw it again but it was up stairs. I hope I you don't ever see that thing again. Just like I don't want to see the demon in my bedroom! 😨
God Bless ❤ Katie

Actually, I haven't seen it in a long time so it must have left cause of having a evil feeling I get a feeling of curiosity in my room which who I think is Jamie, a teenage ghost maybe 13 or 14 and well...he's doesn't feel evil, yea he gets mad at times when I ignore him and starts tapping, right now I'm at my Grandparents and will be returning next monday. There's a little boy ghost but that's probly it tho I think Jamie followed kindof maybe. Who knows but I'm not afraid so no demon can haunt me, thanks, Katherine. Thanks for reading...

Yes what you saw was a demon but you know that I guess! You said when you saw it that it frightened you so you screamed and ran. I have heard that you should not do that. If it is evil it likes scaring you, that's what it WANTS to do, it's how it lives! So if you stay calm and tell yourself," I'm Not afraid" "I'm NOT afraid!" It might even help to tell or yell at the demon if you see it again that you are not afraid. If you see it again, please try this and tell me what happens. Here To Help -HardToScare432

Hi, Pyschicfamilymoments that's cool that we have a lot in common. And I don't believe in that movie, yea it scared me into tears*Yea I cried so sue me* buts I knows it fake. As for taking picture I probly wouldn't be able to catch it on camera even if I felt it. And the thing I saw on my bed was looking out the window more I can be a bit melodramatic so I can exaggerate a little. The thing I saw I think left after growing bored I guess. And I began seeing a spirit and feeling a spirit who constantly attempted to catch my attention. Me being a non social girl at times always stayed home except on the weekends where I would escape to a friends house. My parents are always at work or sleeping or sitting in front of the tv. My life can be somewhat depressing if I let it and I constantly try to ignore my mothers put downs and try my hardest not to let feelings kill me. I feel lonely a lot but I find my way thro life, I've got a lot to live for and I stick to believing everyone has a purpose...*I went off topic, slaps self* Sorry I went rambling about my lonely life, that shouldn't be spoken of to people that don't know me. I'm not into demonology and don't plan to but thanks for reading my story I really appreciate it, Katherine

EmeraldAngel, I have seen several stories that you have posted on, and every time I see a post I find something that reminds me of well, me. I know it sounds stalkerish, but trust me I'm not, in fact I'm Highly scared of stalkers. Anyways I have found out that we are ABOUT the same age, and both live in texas. I don't have a demon/ghost following me, but I have a very old texan family, and everyone seems to be psychic. Actually, I'm sorta the weak one when it comes to this stuff, even though I know the most about it. Anyways, let me just tell you this, don't believe paranormal activity, 'cause it has several different endings. Have you looked at demonology? Maybe if you find out more you can get rid of this THING! Also next time you feel its presence, take a picture, and see if you get anything. But don't take a lot of pictures, because that can make it stronger.

Hey you have been really kind in your advice to me I will give you some in return. Take a piece of cloth and preferably linen if you can find it. Inside the cloth put salt and concecrated soil (from a cemetary) catholic if possible, you only need a bit. Keep it with you, especially when you feel it watching. Concecrated soil is blessed, the problem is that concecration is becoming rare. If you find a cemetary that will work DO NOT take it from a grave but from an unused spot of the oldest part of the cemetary. Some places don't bless the newer parts of the grounds. Thank you for all of your advice and hope mine helps

Awesome to hear things are going much, much better for you, Emerald.
You know what? Those other things that are still bothering you? Do not try to fix each and every problem all at once. I found out, just recently, that trying to fix a lot of things together (because they are all "cause and effect" OF each other), STILL only slows it all down. Work on one of the problems (as you are. Very commendable, Kudo's) at a time. Kind of just pick 'em off one by one.
Who knows? Maybe when this first one is completely taken take of, the others will just follow suit without you needing to do a thing.
Good Luck, Hun.
You got this one licked.

Hi Emerald. Glad to hear things are going a bit smoother. The hardest part is getting over the fear, but you seem to be on the right track in that department 😁. It's good that your mom has realized something was really going on. Parents can sometimes be hard to convince, but now you can confide in her about these things and that will be very helpful for you.
Hang in there. This may sound tough to believe, but after awhile, you sort of get used to the weird.

hey Can you hear me I'm perfectly fine. Of course I'm not going to embrace it. I want it out of my life but I not going to try anything. I'm fine, really I am
can_u_hear_me (1 posts)
14 years ago (2010-07-11) not embrace whatever keeps bothering you do not talk to it do not try to get deeper involved with it! By you doing so you are opening the doors to both worlds and letting it enter more of yours. And if it is evil like you claim it will be harder for to later try to get rid of it. 😨

stand firm against it and be firm, only you will drive yourself insane if you continue to be afraid of it. Prayer also helps. Don't pay attention stupid people and there bullshiat comments cause they're not the ones feeling what you are going through. Fear is there number one energy source. How do you get a bully to stop picking on you, by fighting back. Take care and god bless. Write back if you want

hi thanks for all the comments and advice. I've been on vacation visiting my Grandparents and haven't been bothered much except maybe for still seeing them. They don't bother me and I try to not give em much attention thou I still flake out when I see them and I become paralyzed in shock. Now that I think of that experience it was looking more out the window. Musta exaggerated a bit, my dream job is to be a author of ghost books and horror maybe. I don't know but anyway I'm not as scared and after a big fight with my mom she started to understand how I feel about seeing them. Now I'm hanging with my family more and occasionally watching my back. I think I had saw a good spirit last night, it was white. The only problem I have now is my nightmares and still waking up in the middle of the night. Thank you all~Katherine~ ❤ ❤ ❤

one thing don't show emotion to it. It lives off of that, should it be a demon or an evil entity. It'll just continue doing it, escilading to where it will get physical or mental

First off, I would like to caution you not to set yourself up for disappointment, OR anxiety.
Not all people who can sense ghosts and spirits are psychic (sense the life impaired in a variety of ways, and MAY be able to communicate), just as all psychics are not mediums (communicate with the life impaired). If you can sense a life impaired individual, it means that you are sensitive (able to experience the residual energies of life impaired individuals).
The definitions, and the "rightness" of them is NOT the important factor. The following IS:

The good news for you is that this COULD be a one time experience.

I am going to say this to you again.
YES, it was a GREAT idea to run.
Our personal comfort zones are our guides. If we ignore the fact that we are scared, and we stand firm, we COULD be letting ourselves into a very bad situation, as you found out.
If we are STARTLED, that is different. Just about every honest person that I know who has experienced this type of thing will admit that first sight, audio, or feel of a ghost/spirit/being WILL startle them. Sylvia Brown herself, has admitted as such.
There is absolutely NO shame in that.
In fact, I find it EXTREMELY hard to believe a recount that states firmly that the live person involved was neither scared momentarily nor startled. Things do not generally just pop out at us with no reaction from us whatsoever.
I can not TELL you the number of times I literally RAN as if the Hounds of Hell were nipping at my heels. I even scream. <shrug> No biggie. I have even grabbed my Life Partner and THREW him in front of me as if he were a human shield. No small feat in that, he is a foot plus taller, and over a hundred pounds heavier. I would say that I was pretty durned scared at that time to have that amount of strength.
No shame in leaving, and returning when you are more calm, either. Which is what I usually end up doing. I just can not "let it go".
The point is, if you are SCARED, you should NEVER approach a being or try to deal with it in ANY manner.
With the questions in your story line answered...
Is it still bothering you? Have you found the relief you sought? Did you catch the rest of the advice that was given you by me in that OTHER comment section? I would copy and paste it, but it IS rather long. Just as a reminder, it was in the story "My Angel Lucifer".
Be safe Hun. Do NOT try to take on more than you can handle.

I agree with many of the people here, they've given you some great advice. No- you are not crazy. Sorry about your mom. Some people are just stubborn to admit things are happening, even when it happens to them, because they can't understand it and don't want to. I also am a sensitive person, like you. You'll understand these things a lot more as you get older. You can learn how to embrace it and welcome the experiences. Spirits/entities/whatever they may be, are attracted to you because they can sense your ability to be more open minded to them, and in a world where most people aren't, that's very attention grabbing to them. Sometimes they're looking for a means to communicate, sometimes I honestly think they're just curious, but other kinds like to feed off of your energy. Possibly the thing you saw was feeding off of you. Fear can be a strong emotion and it will feed off of that. Try not to be afraid, because then it can't feed off of you. I've had success in making those kinds of spirits go away simply by just demanding that they leave. If you don't want to attract anymore spirits at all, you can also "shut off your mind" to them. Good luck!

No, you are not going ballistic. I've seen a demon/spirit myself when I was 4-5 years of age. I didn't tell my mom about it because she thinks the belief in ghost is dumb. In other words, I believe you. Thank you for sharing. 😐

you're not mad, never mind if you're strong or have courage to face the fear and dangerous situations. While seeing a supernatural thing do like anyother one would do: cry/shout/scream like little girls and run.

It makes sense that you started sensing things on your birthday, like you said it is called psychic. People; if they DO have another sense (ESP), they usually realize it or like control it or whatever when they got somewhat older. 😊

The thing about ghosts/spitits is this- they typically have very limited energy on their own. They draw energy from the environment, from electronics, and from people in the vicinity. The sort of energy you send out has a lot to with the way entities will interact with you. Sending out positive energy will draw positive spirits. Sending out fear and negative energy will draw negative spirits. Right now, you seem to be projecting a lot of fear. I know it's easy to say, but difficult to do, but you have to gain control of your fear.
You are in control. You have power over yourself and your surroundings. Nothing can hurt you. When you feel afraid, repeat those words to yourself. Concentrate on your breathing, deep breath in, hold it, release it. The words will give positive mental programming. The breathing will help with self-control. It will distract you from the fear, and help you to fight the fear.
Blessings ❤

EmeraldAngel...So sorry this has happened to you on your birthday (that's rotten) and I do believe you saw something... There will be a variety of opinions on your story... And at the end of the day, sorting out who to believe and what to do will be your choice... And I hope the right advise comes good... Just want you to think about a couple of things meantime... Lets presume this experience was an evil one... Do you think it would suit its cause, for all of us to tell you it is?... YES... And why... It wants you to be frighten... When an evil presence has you frighten, it knows your imagination, fear and sensitivity is going to help its cause... Of weakening your mind and spirit so it can scare the hell into you...

If evil spirits/entities really had that much power, they would be picking all of us up of the ground... Like in the movie paranormal activity and throwing us of buildings and towards camera's, set up in our rooms like in that movie... (rubbish) they are only as powerful as our minds let them be... So what I suggest... Is to extract all the positive advise here...don't allow this entity to ruin your life...don;t even acknowledge it... Move your thoughts away from the paranormal... Especially negative ones... I know this is easy said but you can do it... Keep positive... All the best, hope things get better.

EmeraldAngel: Firstly you mention that you are psychic, if this is the case these spirits can sense you are more open to them in the sense of seeing, hearing, feeling and communicating etc. You could either choose to ignore the entities through ceremonies protection prayers and many other more rituals that help you turn your third eye off from these things. Or on the other hand you could embrace your gift by learning more about it as much as you can, though you would have learn to get over your fear something easier said then done.
This is just my generalisation on your situation, there are a lot of people on this site that would have a greater understanding then myself. I wish you all the best.

Thank you for sharing.

the same thing... My advice, get your house cleansed. I wonder how encountering these things feel like... I'm oh-SO-glad that I'm not a "sensitive"! 😢

i would agree in trying to tell it to go away then again if you sense that its evil then you should try that cleansing stuff everyone suggests. You are definitley not insane and I'm sure someoone a bit more knowledgable than myself will give you more helpful advice **LucK** ❤

your not insane it might just be trying to make its self known. And probably because it can sense how sensitive you are to the supernatural. If you ever see it agian just tell it to go away.
