Something evil..

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.

@Therewere5inthebed , hey, just wondering how you've been getting on? Hope all is well with your dad x


JudyGemstone · 05/05/2020 00:19

Hope things are ok OP, a friend of mine really recommends this couple If you're still looking for help?


madmum100 · 05/05/2020 00:38

Why not try multi -faith exorcism to put your mind at rest. Ask a priest to do one.
Indian priests can do what's called a HAVAN which is a long ( you can have a shortened version too) religious ceremony performed in your house to cleans it and to bring good spirits in. You don't have to be a Hindu to have one. Traditionally Indians have these ceremonies when they move to a new house.

I personally think it is all in your mind and you have got yourself into such a state now that you are subconsciously getting negative vibes which are affecting you and causing you to have mishaps which you are now blaming on that room. It is easily done. I wish you luck and I'm sure you will overcome it. Good always wins over evil.


Therewere5inthebed · 06/05/2020 13:20

Thanks for asking.
Things have settled for my Dad, no coldness or smells recently, he was getting rather stressed about it and was even thinking of lifting the floorboards in that room to see if there was anything there. I told him not to, he’s elderly and I really don’t think it’ll help.

He’s waiting for a visit from a representative from the church once lockdown is over, really hoping that it’ll do the trick. The oppressive feeling in the house when you enter is so unwelcoming without the other ‘thing’ too.

If this thing is real, how come you are conversing with it in your own head? You said the voice came from within your head. Can you explain that?


NotNowPlzz · 06/05/2020 13:41

If you dont have any luck with the first church try another. The individual pastors or vicars are all at different levels of spiritual things. Some are very powerful others couldn't banish a sausage. They should pray over you as well as the room.

If it's encouraging your own journey all the better.

I 100% believe you.


NotNowPlzz · 06/05/2020 13:43

@Smartanimal that's where you converse with all spirits, your mind. You can clearly judge what's you and what's not


Therewere5inthebed · 06/05/2020 15:32

I don’t know! I’ve never heard a voice in my head other than my own before this, it knocked me sideways. I’m a perfectly sane person! Honestly!

Thank you for believing, I totally understand that it’s hard for people to believe unless they’ve experienced something themselves and I certainly don’t need validation, I know exactly what happened in both occasions however sometimes someone saying that they believe you is comforting.
I also had no idea until it happened that you converse with spirits in your head and I’m glad that you understand. It has been difficult trying to explain it to people as I didn’t know that that was how it worked.

I’m hopeful that it will be sorted out first time.. if not I will take things further. The response I got surprised me though, I really expected the church to deny but there were no denials at all, they sounded concerned and told me to ring back if it escalated before they were able to attend.

It has helped me to find my spiritual path, although I feel I would have found my path or it would have found me at some point anyway.

@Therewere5inthebed, hey 😊 Glad to hear things are a bit better for your dad , that's good news. I can only imagine how you must be feeling, and even then its probably nothing like how you feel, but I truly hope the Church can help and settles everything down. Give ur dad a hug from me.
P.s I believe you too.


Therewere5inthebed · 07/05/2020 03:34

Thank you for thinking of me, and my Dad, he lives alone and I hate not being able to see him atm, other than leaving his groceries in his porch and then standing at the end of his drive.

I really miss him being a semi- permanent fixture in my kitchen!

Unfortunately I’m in the shielding category and he’s in the vulnerable group so goodness knows when I’ll be able to see him properly. We speak daily but it’s not the same at all.

Thank you for believing me, I know how it sounds!

I have a friend in the Eastern US coast who had the presence of two entities in his weekend home. They couldn’t sleep as something banged doors and turned on lights all night. He hired a priest, a medium, and a spiritualist. The latter two came together. They told him two previous owners were there, and were unhappy with changes he made to the property.

The medium and spiritualist did two clean songs on two separate weekends. The priest did a blessing on a third weekend. Since then, about a year ago, the spirits haven’t bothered him.

My friend is an atheist and didn’t believe in ghosts/spirits. He now says he doesn’t know what was there, or what he believes, but whatever his “hired guns” did has worked to date.


Bumsnet1 · 07/05/2020 05:00

Power in Jesus’ name. Maybe get a church to help.


Gettingo · 07/05/2020 05:12

Why would an evil presence bother to warn you though? If it could do harm, it just would without the big announcement. That's how catastrophe occurs in my experience, out of the blue. It sounds like empty threats to me, as if it's just trying to mess with your state of mind.


Nearlyshitmypantsthere · 07/05/2020 13:09

@Therewere5inthebed , it's a horrible situation, in every way possible. Take care and stay safe, and plz update when you can x


TinRoofRusty · 07/05/2020 21:10

I hope you get this resolved. I believe you, too.


CanIHaveAPenguinPlease · 11/05/2020 23:12

Op I’m Greek & whenever most Greeks move house or have renovations we get the priest to come over to do a blessing.

Good luck.


Anywaythewindisblowing · 30/05/2020 21:58

How are things OP? how is your Dad? Sending love x


Therewere5inthebed · 03/06/2020 16:42

Hi @Anywaythewindisblowing
Things seem calm atm, Dad is home alone and not bothered by the entity.

I’m spending my furlough learning about how to deal with it (I think I’m almost there now) when life returns to some semblance of normal.

I’m still considering ringing the church back and will do in a heartbeat if things don’t go to plan.

I hope you’re all keeping well.

It wants the op to worry.Drain her energy and make whatever it is stronger.

I hope op you get it sorted soon


LouisaKelmen · 11/08/2020 12:03

How are things OP?🌻


Magic1231 · 10/12/2020 15:08

How are things now lovely? How is your dad?
I think unless you've gone through a similar paranormal experience it's difficult for people to understand xxx


Therewere5inthebed · 15/12/2020 21:16

Sorry for lack of an update.

To cut a long story short things are beyond crap.

In the last month DH decided that he wants so have a trial separation and DF has been diagnosed with terminal cancer.

I’m moving in with DF in the very near future but not until the house has been cleansed.

It has been arranged but due to being in tier 3 is on hold.
