I’m a bit nervous about sharing this story because it still keeps me up at night if I think about it too much. Here goes…
I’ve lived in the same house in Torrance, California for about 20 years now without many “supernatural” occurrences. I have a bad habit of watching TV late at night when I can’t sleep and this particular night a few years ago I was doing just that. It was around 3 a.m. and I had the fan in my room on because it was very hot.
I was laying on my stomach and facing the TV sideways. I closed my eyes for just a moment.
I remember seeing a red ribbon laying across a chair I had, blowing in the fan’s breeze, just before I shut my eyes. (Strange because I don’t own such a thing nor any red articles of clothing that would look like it!)
Suddenly I felt pinned down to my bed. Mostly the upper part of my body as though something were sitting on me (I’m getting goosebumps, remembering as I type this). Then I heard a loud, angry growl right in my ear! I panicked and I remember flailing my legs because they seemed to be the only things that could move.
The growling continued and I said a prayer in my head along with a phrase I heard in church “Abba Father” which means, “Help me, Father”. Instantly, the growling stopped and I was able to sit straight up in bed. The TV show I had been watching still going on… the fan still blowing. No “red ribbon” on the chair.
I couldn’t sleep the rest of the night… and I still don’t know if it was a Demon or a Dream that haunted me that night.
On a side note, the next morning I looked in my dream dictionary for the meaning of a “ribbon” and didn’t find much. I searched for the color “Red” and found that it meant “A warning of danger.”
