I’ve always been more “open” to paranormal experiences throughout my life. I’ve had many moments growing up where I’ve seen things or heard things and even felt things push me before. But, it had been years and years since I’d run into anything. But, my husband, 7 month old daughter and I all just moved into a house a few weeks back. I noticed when we first moved in that the master bedroom and bathroom seemed to be almost infested with flies.
My first thought threw back to scenes from Amityville Horror and I tried to pass it off as all the flies must have gotten in because we had so many doors open while moving in. Anyway, they all die off but then new flies just take their place, so its like a graveyard of flies in my bedroom and bathroom, with fresh flies all about. They arent buzzing around though, that’s whats odd to me, they just sit up on the walls and ceiling. I dont know if any of that is related to this next part but wanted to put it out there.
On to last night’s events… I woke up in the middle of the night to a sound, I’m not sure what the sound was, but when I opened my eyes and they adjusted to the darkness, I saw a person, wearing white, standing a few feet from my daughter’s crib (she sleeps in our room). I immediately froze, heart racing, as the person moved towards her crib, and then leaned over it, as if bending over the crib to look down on her.
I tried convincing myself it was my husband checking on her. The person turned and walked away, out of my range of sight in the dark. I immediately nudge next to me, trying to see if my husband was indeed out of bed, and fright came over me when I realized he was still next to me. I shot my gaze back towards my daughter’s crib and saw the person standing over me, moving closer.
I screamed and closed me eyes and started hitting my husband to wake up. I told him there was a person in our room, between the bed and crib, he lunged out of bed, and got between me and the crib and was in an attack stance in an instance. He kept asking me where they went and I couldn’t see a thing in the dark, so I turned on a little light near me and shown it around the room but we didn’t see anyone. I was convinced this person went into the bathroom or closet. My husband turned on the main light in the room, loaded his gun and proceeded to clear the bed and bathroom, followed by the rest of our house. All doors and windows were closed and locked. The cat was still sleeping on the couch. No disruptions to the house, no broken windows, no person, anywhere. I was hysterical, crying and insisting I did see someone. I was so panicked, I started throwing up.
Eventually, he calmed me down and assured me no one was in the house and that we were all safe. But, that’s because he firmly does NOT believe in anything paranormal, whereas I DO believe, so once I knew it was not a living person, I KNEW it was something else that I saw.
I know I was not imagining this person. I was fully awake as it happened and not under the influence of any drugs or alcohol. I went today and bought some basic protection symbols (crucifix, rosary, some medals to wear around my neck, etc) but I’m wondering if there is anything else I can do to help ward this presence off?
I didn’t get a violent or angry vibe from it, it just seemed like it was looking down on baby, and then me. But, I still don’t want it around! Help! What can I do? And any tips on talking to hubby about this, since he’s a major non believer?? THanks!!
