First let me say, that although I’ve lived with spirits, demons and supernatural occurrences all my life, I differentiate between them like this – a spirit or a ghost is pretty harmless, although they may be quite aggravating and even frightening to some, they’re generally fairly calm and almost peaceful. A demon on the other hand, is pure evil and out to hurt someone.
I know there’s all kinds of terms for different types of entities, poltergeists etc, but I tend to categorize them in one of the two–either spirit or demon! I have never felt the need to know the exact technical name for any type of supernatural being I’ve dealt with. The reason I’m writing this is because the “thin” I’m about to tell you about may not have been what most people would call a demon, to me it is! Now the story, sorry it’s so long…
My daughter lives right beside me and not long ago she’d came over to tell me what had happened. Like I said, we’ve always dealt with and lived with supernatural happenings, so she knows to come to me for help when something happens.
She’d gotten up around 6 am and had knocked on my door to try to get me up as soon as it happened. I didn’t hear her knocking, so later, she came over to tell me about it.
She got up and came down her stairs like usual, her full grown Golden Retriever that is still a big baby, usually just tromps down the stairs and heads straight to the window to look out. But, this morning he wouldn’t go down the steps!
He stayed behind her whining and growling real low and was scared to death. This is what warned her that something was wrong. My daughter felt really scared to, which is why she’d came straight over to get me!
She said she slowly went down the steps and peeked around the stairway wall, thinking someone might be in the apartment. Of course, “someone” being in there would not have scared her dog so bad.
The dog came down right behind her and I guess when he didn’t see anything he was relieved and ran to the living room. But, he didn’t go to the window as normal, instead he ran all around the living room, hallway and kitchen with his nose stuck to the floor following a scent.
As soon as she told me about the event, I told her that if it happened again to come and get me and I’d get rid of it. But, as we talked more and more, I knew that we couldn’t afford to wait until it happened again. This thing was up to no good and I wanted it out of my daughter’s home!
One of the first things I asked was if she’d gotten anything new lately, not “new” but new to her. A piece of furniture, picture for the wall or anything that someone could have gave her. She said, no! So, the next step, I asked if she’d had anyone come and visit that hadn’t been there in a long time. Yes, she’d had someone show up that she hadn’t seen in several years the night before this happened!
The person that had visited her was a friend and would not in anyway cause harm to her. But, this demon came in with him. He’d been somewhere or around someone and this thing had attached itself to him and was invited in with him.
I kept feeling more and more like it was there to do some kind of evil, so I told her, let’s go get rid of it. So, we went straight to her apartment and I got rid of it. It’s never been back since and the next morning when she got up, the dog pranced down the stairs in front of her and headed straight to the window!
After we got over at her apartment, I asked her where all did this friend go. She said that he’d just been in the living room, hallway and kitchen. Which explained exactly why the dog only followed the scent in those areas! The dog wasn’t afraid upstairs, the friend hadn’t went upstairs! He was afraid on the steps, but not because of the steps, he was looking down the steps as he whined and growled.
I don’t know what it was there to do, but it wasn’t good. I also don’t believe that the friend even realized that it was with him. This is often the reason why one day a place that’s calm and peaceful can suddenly be terrorized by a demon, it has came in with someone or something!
