My next experience happened a year or so after I met my third wife. I moved into what was her long-term family home; a home which had much history in the area of paranormal activity. however I never expected to meet the entity.
It would have been in 2005. It was the early hours of the morning when I became aware that my face was being pressed into the pillow by what felt like someone sat astride my chest.
I was apparently making a noise that sounded like I was being suffocated. (this is according to my wife who was woken by the noise). Initially she thought that I was simply having a bad dream and so she attempted to rouse me.
Realising that I was actually awake she could see I appeared to be being pinned down. She Instinctively reached out her hand to my chest which she said was ice cold. (my wife tells me I’m hot in bed, I’ll take a compliment where I can). The moment that she touched me the episode was over, and my temperature returned to normal.
The House has form
As we lay awake discussing the events, My wife informed me, that a previous partner had also had issues with the entity. Apparently he often saw the spirit. Some nights it tormented him endlessly. This had included seeing the spirit/ghost stood outside the bedroom door as he returned from the bathroom. He claimed it had just stood there staring at him.
Too afraid to challenge it, he went back to the bathroom and waited a while until is had gone.
I do enjoy a good horror movie I particularly enjoyed The Entity and the poltergeist.
The Entity in the movies
Now it’s usually very clear when a ghost or spirit wants you out. You do have to wonder why people stay. (apart from the fact there would be no film if they just simply got up and left).
I believed rightly or wrongly that it was perhaps a test of my commitment. Consequently I stayed, (though I never quite felt comfortable when I was in the house alone). Thankfully at least, there were no further attempts on my life.
We did however a year or so later undertake some dowsing and glass moving. This was driven in part by us having attended a ghost hunt in London.
during the evenings events we had undertaken glass moving. because our group was all family, what came through was some startling revelations about our haunted home.
Back at home
Both activities did shed some light on the number of spirits in the house and whether their intent was good or bad.
We established that there was a female who was good if not a little mischievous. There was a male who I believe was perhaps attached in some way to my wife. There was also a third spirit, seemingly another male whose intent seemed more sinister.
The mischievous female seemed the dominant spirit in the house and it tied up with some of the events over the years that my wife’s family had witnessed and experienced.
These events had included a bowl freely spinning around on the coffee table in view of my wife her sister and mum. My wife had been a young child at the time.
My father-in-law who has since sadly passed away, was an antique restorer and one of the rooms at the house was used to store his furniture. I understand that spirits can become attached to furniture. It is therefore reasonable to suppose that the spirits may have been effectively imported. We did try and establish the past history of the property but there was nothing to suggest anything untoward had happened there.
I do believe that the spirit which attacked me is attached to the house. It is either protective or possessive over my wife.
After our last session of Dowsing in the property, the house felt much more oppressive and there were a couple of sighting in the guest bedroom of a hideous contorted face.
Given events that have happened since we moved from the home, we both believe that somehow this entity has cursed us. Watch for future posts where I will explain the reasons why, we have concluded this.
