This happened to me last year some weeks before summer break and it still scares me to this day. During the time this events happened I was in a stage of my life where I was very depressed. I still struggle with this now, but it’s become easier thanks to the help of my family and friends. So back then, I was constantly sad and I didn’t go out much or talked to anyone. I started watching this shows where people tell their own experiences with the paranormal and all of that. I remember I used to watch this till very late in the night, my heart racing at some of the stories because of how scary they were. I know for some of you this may seem as no big deal, but this things can actually have an effect on you, specially when you are in a depressed state.
I started having this really awful nightmares, were horrible things happened to the people I loved or someone would try to hurt me. I would wake up covered in sweat and not being able to sleep later. So one night things took a turn for the worse.
For a little background info, my bed is right under the window that leads to the front yard, and my brother’s cat would climb on my bed just so she could look out the window. Sometimes she would do this when I was peacefully sleeping, scaring the crap out of me in the process. I would have to close the door so I was able to sleep in peace. This particular night I remember closing the door as usual and kneel next to my bed to say a pray, a habit I had since I was little. I recall leaning my forehead against my hands and closing my eyes, when I suddenly felt a soft brush against my fingers. Thinking I probably didn’t close the door properly, I looked up expecting to see the cat but it wasn’t there. Turning the lights on I looked around but the cat was no where in sight. Then I opened the door and the cat was sitting outside my room, waiting for me to open the door. I ignored the incident and said to my self I had probably just imagined the whole thing, after all I hadn’t had much sleep lately.
The second time was the same, but this time I felt someone push my head as if to get my attention. I immediately turned the light on but like last time the cat wasn’t there. I went out my room looking for her thinking maybe she run out of my room before I could catch her, and found her laying next to my brother on the couch. When I asked him if the cat had just come to sit with him he told me the cat had been sleeping next to him for the last hour. I didn’t know what to think of the situation.
The nights after that, I would just wake up in the middle of the night to see dark shadows in the corners of my room. I don’t believe in ghosts at all. I think there’s only God and his angels, and the devil and his demons, nothing else. But even if it was a demon that was trying to bother me, it made no sense to me. I never play any type of ghost summoning games like the Ouija board or anything like that, so it made no sense why this things where happening.
The last thing that happened was the one that scared me the most. I was laying down trying to fall asleep, when I clearly felt the mattress sink next to me as if someone was sitting down next to me. I couldn’t bring my self to open my eyes, or move. I knew no one had entered my room cause the door made a loud noise when it opened and I never heard that. After many seconds that felt like hours, I sat up and looked around. And of course there was no one there. The door was closed and the house in complete and utter silence. I remember I felt so scared I started crying. I didn’t know what exactly was happening or why, I just wanted it to stop. I ended telling my dad the whole thing. At first he felt sad that I hadn’t come to him for help earlier, but he then proceeded to tell me that those things where happening because of the state I was in. He explained that when we are feeling vulnerable or depressed and we fill our spirit with more negative things we open our selves to this bad entities so they do with us as they please. After this talk with my dad I stopped watching those paranormal shows and I decided to live a more positive and happy life.
Nothing else has happened since then, thankfully. I know my story will probably make no sense to some of you, but I pray that if you are going through a tough time there’s someone that can help you get back on your feet and help you see life in a brighter light.
