Ok, long post but would like advice from someone who could advise..
When I was a young girl, around 4 so pre-school, I had something happen to me, my family are aware of it as I told both my Mum and Dad at the time. Mum was dismissive as she always was with me (narcissist) and Dad didn’t know what to do so said he believed me but was not proactive as such as he was unsure what to do.
It was a sunny spring morning and I remember being called by a voice, I was in the back room and the voice came from the front room, Mum was in the kitchen so didn’t see me walk through to the ‘out of bounds‘ to me ‘sitting room’ I remember wandering in and looking around before sitting near the bay window looking out at the street, all of a sudden I remember being pulled to the floor and having something lay on me, it was heavy and prevented me from moving as well as it hurting me.
This thing had a face but I remember replacing this face in my head as Tony the Tiger from the Frosties ad, less scary I suppose.. but then as time progressed I ran and hid whenever the advert was on tv or if I heard a motorbike as he rode one in the ad, and being hysterical.
As the years passed the memory has never faded but the fear of that room lessened, I avoided the room at all costs though.
My Dad still lives in the house but I rarely visit, it’s easier for him to visit us anyway, and if I do go inside always get a feeling of dread and utter dispair.
Fast forward to last October, Dad arrived at my house looking very unwell, this resulted in me calling 999 and he was rushed to hospital with what later turned out to be pneumonia.
I drove to his house to get him essentials, pj’s pants etc once it became clear he was staying in for a while. I collected the clothes, his glasses, a book etc and couldn’t find a bag to put it in other than his hobby bag which was kept in the front room.. now I must add that at this time I was worried sick about my Dad, my mind was racing with what to take for him, thinking about who I could ask to collect DD from school etc, I walked into the room carrying his things, sat on an armchair and took the things out of his bag in order to put his hospital things in when I heard a voice in my head, as clear as if someone had spoken out loud, “so you’re back then”
I stopped what I was doing and answered, also in my head I think, “yes, I am” immediately I got a reply “are you not scared?” to which I replied “ not anymore” it then replied “well, you should be”
I left the house in a heartbeat and took Dads things to the hospital but spoke to DH about it that evening. He didn’t really know what to say as he knows the history but also knows that I’m a rational person with no MH issues.
The next day (Saturday) my car just stopped as if someone had pulled the plug out as I was midway across a busy junction, thankfully nothing hit me, it was towed to the garage who could find absolutely nothing wrong with it.
On the Sunday I slipped and broke my ankle resulting in me loosing my income totally (self employed). There have been so many bizarre, unlucky things happening since then that a number of people have commented on how terrible my luck has been since this time..
My Dad has said that he has never had a problem in that room but on occasion he’s walked in there and the whole room has felt freezing cold, when this happens he just says out loud “don’t even think about messing with me” and walks out of the room.
I’ve thought about smudging the room but don’t want to mess with something that I don’t understand.
NemophilistRebel · 27/03/2020 11:50
Thats a horrific event to deal with when young and to find that there’s something that’s still going on this many years later is frightening to say the least
I have no idea what you should do. Smudging the room would be fine it doesn’t mess with anything as such but from what you’ve said you are now having unusual occurrences outside of this house?
Therewere5inthebed · 27/03/2020 11:58
Exactly, it’s almost as if I caught me at a weak point and has taken hold.
I visited a local Wiccan shop who listened and didn’t speak to me as though I’d lost the plot, they advised me to wear Obsidian and I have started wearing some on a necklace, no idea if this is helping but this whole experience has made me feel as though I need to protect myself.
So I’m beginning a journey into white witchcraft, this feels very natural to me and has given me comfort as I hope to make myself stronger through it.
Spied · 27/03/2020 12:08
I'd be looking for a local medium/spiritualist church, telling them what has happened and asking them if they could visit and help you clear the room.
NemophilistRebel · 27/03/2020 12:09
The obsidian is good. You could also put some in your car.
I’m not very clued up on all the ways of protection but you could put salt at your front and back door at home to help stop anything entering when you are there.
The Wiccan shop is probably a good place to start for advise but there’s a massive online help available too.
NemophilistRebel · 27/03/2020 12:10
I also agree with speid.
If it’s causing actual potential harm and is threatening you may need more than just crystals
iklboo · 27/03/2020 12:12
Burn sage & look up a cleansing ritual - or ask the Wiccan lady to do this for you.
Therewere5inthebed · 27/03/2020 12:15
The problem is that I’m scared now, it’s almost like it’s knocked all of the strength and resilience that I’ve built up over the years out of me.
I have thought about this but as i’m not Christian and do not believe in the Christian god as such I’m unsure if the spiritualist church or mediums will be able to help me or it will work if I don’t believe..
Therewere5inthebed · 27/03/2020 12:16
This is the direction I’m moving in but feel I need more knowledge before I do it.
NemophilistRebel · 27/03/2020 12:39
Read up on it as much as you can
You might not be able to get books now but if you have a form of e reader there are basic books giving information on protection spells and rituals to help a house or a person
There’s also a witch group on Mumsnet.
Join in the talk there, someone may be able to put you in the right direction
I’m part of it but I’m very much a green and kitchen witch and do things mostly with herbs, growing and cooking.
I do have a lot of protection Crystals and I some protection spells but you might need more of a stronger banishing spell and a cleansing ritual to go alongside it
scaryreading · 27/03/2020 12:52
Controversial but I think it may be worth contacting a local Christian church and seeking help. There is power in the name of Jesus
I know no one will physically come out to the house at the moment but they could offer support
Therewere5inthebed · 27/03/2020 13:08
That’s my plan, to gain as much knowledge and strength as I can before tackling it.
I did buy a book to get myself started and have also joined an online 12m course.
Where is the Witch group please? That sounds fabulous but I can’t seem to find it.
@scaryreading I have considered this, I am christened and did attend church for a while but thought that as I’m no longer a believer it wouldn’t help. and I also thought that they may consider me a fruit bat
YippeeKayakOtherBuckets · 27/03/2020 13:16
I am not totally dismissive of it being an evil presence. But can I gently posit that you may have been abused as a child? Perhaps by a family friend visiting?
The brain is a marvellous thing and it’s not unheard of for a trauma response to manifest itself like this, you’ve created a memory that your 4yo brain could comprehend?
And you were already in fight or flight when you went in as an adult, worried about your dad and also apprehensive about the room, so thoughts can definitely be construed as voices because your senses are so heightened.
I would go ahead with smudging and the Wicca because it absolutely can’t hurt but it might be worth exploring what actually happened when you were 4, for your own peace of mind?
I’m really sorry if I’ve spoken out of turn, I’m trying not to cause any offence.
NemophilistRebel · 27/03/2020 13:34
Here is the Mumsnet group - www.mumsnet.com/Talk/philosophy_religion_spirituality/3850635-Any-Witches-Here-Part-11
Might not be able to help specifically but can maybe give you more ideas and point you in the right direction
Generally it’s worth joining in just for the support and the calming nature of the posts from all the wonderful women there
Therewere5inthebed · 27/03/2020 13:47
I get where you are coming from so don’t worry about causing offence but no, I’m 100% certain that this was not a person. I remember the events clearly and my Mother and I were the only ones in the house.
I went into the room that day as an adult without thoughts of anything other than practicalities. I’m also 100% sure that I didn’t project or imagine it.
@scaryreading my Dad did suggest this as it is his house and he often belts out hymns as he’s pottering around the house, but I must admit I was rather dismissive of it.
Maybe this is an avenue we could go down, thanks for the reassurance.
Thank you, I’ll pop in and say hello, it sounds like a room that I’d like.
QuestionableMouse · 27/03/2020 13:48
@YippeeKayakOtherBuckets I was going to say the same thing. I'd be looking for a real human before some sort of demon.
Care break down. My last one had a bad sensor that caused it to stop just like yours. Took a while to figure it out because the sensor would only go bad when the car was hot.
I'm really sorry for your experience but I don't think dwelling on it and going down the rabbit hole into witchcraft is going well bring you any peace.
Meltedwellie · 27/03/2020 16:56
Each day imagine you are putting on a blue cloak of protection and imagine it going right up over your head until you are fully enclosed. You can ask for the protection of angels even if you don’t believe in them. Do meditations and imagine breathing in the white light of love of the universe. Breathe in love, protection and peace and breathe out stress and worry. X
mollycoddle77 · 27/03/2020 16:59
Another vote for a Christian church - you can be sure they will believe you and you do not need to know where you stand on God and Jesus in advance!
Therewere5inthebed · 27/03/2020 20:33
Thank you for your messages but I’m 100% sure that whatever is in that room is not human.
Neither our cat or dog would go in there and the cat would often puff up and hiss and spit in the direction of the door to the room.
The house was used as a billet house during WW2 and I do wonder if someone messed with a Ouija board at this time.
The whole house is unwelcoming, many people have commented on the atmosphere so it’s not my imagination.
Therewere5inthebed · 27/03/2020 20:37
I will look into contacting our local Vicar, sometimes things have no rational explanation..
In our current house we have what I think are time slips, a male voice saying “no” from the corner of the room as clear as day, or a baby crying in the kitchen.. they come out of nowhere, the whole family have heard them at various times so once again not just me and not from outside.
I think I’m susceptible to these things..
SeperatedSwans · 27/03/2020 20:51
Quietly pray. I know this sounds silly and you may think it will do nothing, but you have nothing to loose.
Pray and ask for help, support and protection.
In god's name evil will not prevail.
This is also your plane of existence so whatever it is can only exist because you allow it to. Your father is right telling it to go away or not to mess with him is the right thing. You can also simply tell this force to "go away, and leave you alone".
scaryreading · 27/03/2020 22:52
Try to read the bible and you could say the Lord's Prayer.
There is power In Jesus's name. Tell them to go in his name.
poppyseedsandlemon · 06/04/2020 15:05
My friend does this for a living she clears houses and can do it remotely.
Honeybee85 · 06/04/2020 15:13
That is very scary OP.
I personally always wear a crucifix pendant, makes me feel safe. My Greek friend says: in Jesus name, leave me alone! or something like this when she feels unpleasant energy around her. I second pp who say contact a priest. I know of a priest from a church close to my old home who was an official exorcist, appointed by the Catholic Church. I imagine people like him could help you. Stay safe OP
