Hmmm...

Hello! So I've never posted here before, and mostly I don't talk about these things cuz I don't want to sound nuts...but I thought I'd put this out there and see what you all think.

My son recurrently complains about something scary in one particular corner of his room. We can go weeks with no complaints and then he'll complain several nights in a row. The room used to be my oldest daughters and we never had any issues with her in there. BTW, the house is only 5 years old, we built it.

I have had it happen to me several times when getting ready for work in the morning that I'll be in our closet and it will seem as though the light gets brighter for a moment or two, then goes back to normal. When this happens, I always seem to catch a face 'floating' out of the corner of my eye, but when I look directly it's not there (have always questioned if I'm just tired). It's intermittent with no pattern.

Then, a few nights ago I was laying in my youngest daughter's bed with her, I had fallen asleep in there (sleep training not going well). When I woke up, I had to use the bathroom, but I just layed there because she was restless and didn't want to wake her. I was looking out into the hall where there is an open to below foyer and the staircase. The stair lights were on so it was well lit. I thought I saw a bunch of black fluttering. I looked away and looked back again, and I still saw it. It looked like hundreds of little black moths that fluttered in a group and got closer and closer, eventually landing on the ceiling near the corner of my son's room (not near where he sees what ever it is he sees), and right outside the room I was in. I just laid there feeling totally nuts, but watched as a few seconds later, they started to release from the ceiling and flutter as a group down the hall towards oldest daughter's room, but instead of making it down the hall, they faded away.

I also have dreams, and they seem to come in groups (and have had dreams like this for many years), of a threatening 'something' that is more or less stalking me. It freaks me out so bad that sometimes I'm afraid to turn over in bed. Or like one time, I woke from a dream like that when I was just dating DH, got so freaked out I left my apartment and went to my mom's. I was so sure something was behind me I couldn't even turn around, and had a hard time backing out of my parking spot. In these dreams, whatever it is will follow me where ever I go, like if I go spend the night at a friends, it'll find me there...

What do you all think?? Am I nuts with an overactive imagination?? What the heck were those moths about?

I don't think you're nuts. Stranger things have happened. I don't know what your beliefs are, but I would highly recommend having a pastor or Christian friend come over and do a house blessing for you. They can talk to you more about what might be going on.

:goodluck: It is never fun when something of that nature happens and is beyond what we would consider "normal."

I totally agree... you are not nuts at all. It is very possible that you have an "entity" that's got it's sights set on you.

I also agree that if you are of faith, contact your clergy and see if they can bless your home. You can also do it yourself.... and it's very easy. Burn some sage (you can get smudge stick) and say outloud that it is NOT welcome in your home or near your person. Be very authorative when speaking. Sometimes just claiming your pace as your own is all it takes...

KUP on what happens!

I don't think you are nuts at all! I agree with the sage cleansing, and letting that spirit know its not welcome. Its hard, but you need to communicate out loud with the spirit. Let it know that it is not welcome, you want them to leave and never return. Or you can let it know that it is welcome to stay if it chooses to become friendly and help protect your family. I realize it all seems silly, but it has worked for me in the past.

Thanks ladies, for your advice! Does it make sense that I'm afraid to openly acknowledge a presence? Like by doing so, even if I cleanse the house and tell it to leave, that I'm giving it power just by letting it know that I know and believe it's there?

Why me? Why these rotten dreams that feel so real that I wake up with my heart pounding, with a huge fight or flight reaction kicking in. And sometimes, when I feel this thing coming after me, why do I (in the dream but it seems SO real) feel like I am being physically restrained, or like I have a weight holding me in place (does that make any sense)?

Ok, this is just my opinion (I am NO expert by any means!)

I think your fear is what this thing is feeding off of! You have already acknowledged it, and it knows... now you need to stand up to it! It is invading every part of your life, including your dreams because it knows you are scared... and vulnerable....

:bigarmhug:

Are you able to contact anyone in your area to help? If not religious, perhaps a Local paranormal team? I was surpsrised to find even my tiny little town has one! Check it out and see what you can find!

Okay. I worked in a paranormal team that was part of the atlantic paranormal society. (TAPS) before I had my kids. I think that you should NOT try to push it out yourself. If you are not experienced in the area of cleansing, you could make it worse by doing it wrong. I do think it is a good idea to tell it to leave you and your family alone. That it is your house and your life and you don't want it in it. I don't suggest just going to your local clergy. They are not experienced in driving out unclean spirits. I tell you this because I have witnessed situations similar to yours. I think you might be dealing with a demonic spirit. It seems to feed off of your fear, it messes with your dreams, and it's appearing the way you stated. Not just that, it's scaring your children. DO NOT try to contact it by wiji boards. That will only open your home up to more activity. Feel free to message me and I can refer you to a TAPS group in your area.

How freaky! Please KUP on what you do. I hope you sort this sooner rather than later.

I haven't done anything yet, I'm nervous to even bring it up to DH, he's gonna think I'm mad!

Nothing had happened since I posted this until last night, DS went to bed, and as soon as we closed the door he started to cry. We went back in and he was freaking about the corner of the room and asking what the 'bump' sound was. I decided to lay with him for a while, and that helped, but he didn't want me to leave. Eventually, we let the dog sleep in there with him and there were no problems for the rest of the night.

I think I have to do something.

I don't think you're crazy, either. Have you taken any steps to stop this? I'm hoping things are going well.

I agree with most on here that you should accept that you really are seeing something, not going crazy! There absolutely are evil things out there that can live even inside of your home, and you need to have someone take care of it for you before it starts to really effect you and your children. I would definitely call a pastor to help you out... even if you're not Christian, in my experience, they are the ones most well equipped to rid you of whatever might be going on. Good luck!

What a nightmare! I hope you've been able to seek out help and have found a resolution.

I wonder if the building had something to do with what's going on? Not that I'm any expert, but it seems that building (new places on land that has history or older buildings being remodeled) can "open" your house to activity.

As the pp's have mentioned, I don't think you're crazy at all. Even if your DH isn't a believer, I'd think he'd be willing to go along with whatever will make the rest of his family feel secure.
