Am I Being Haunted and Followed?

Posted on November 1, 2010

Hey, my name is Kitti. I am 18 years old. I’d really appreciate it if anyone could help me understand why this has been happening. I feel like I am being haunted. I have felt this way since I was a young child.

When I was born I lived in a flat with both of my parents above my granddads shop. It used to be a Victorian home. The Victorian light switch and bath etc are still in the bottom (down stairs) of my granddads shop. Many people who work there have heard the light switch going on and off at night when nobody is down there. A few of the staff had seen her. When I was a baby, my mum saw her. Recently my cousin, he was 2 or 3 years old. He said please don’t put me to bed, I don’t want the old lady to sit at the end of my bed. I don’t think this woman has anything to do with my haunting though. She is known to be lonely, and friendly.

When I was about 5 years old, in our next home, at night, there was a shadow at the end of my bed. I remember gathering that the shadow had long hair. It was scratching my stomach. I turned over and it continued to scratch my back. I know I was not asleep. I got the impression it was a witch. That’s what I thought because I was young, I related the long nails/claws and the long hair with a witch. I have no idea what it was.

Around this same age, I woke up with no clothes on. I have never done anything like walk in my sleep or anything. I went to bed that night fully clothes, and I woke up naked.

Throughout my childhood I constantly had nightmares. Very sick and twisted dreams. I always dreamed of an invisible force out to get me. I can’t explain the way it feels but its the worst feeling ever. I still dream of it. I’ve dreamed of this invisible force as along as I can remember. Its evil. It wants to hurt me.

When I was about 8 years old, we moved house again, at night I heard voice. I ran to my sisters room to be with them as I didn’t want to be alone. They were still sleeping. I was pretending I had a pen in my hand and I was writing my name on the floor with my arm out the bed with my pretend pen. I heard noises. Alost footstep noises. My arm shot back up and into the covers. The voice laughed at me. Asked what I thought I was doing. Almost mocking me.

Throughout my childhood I always heard voices. Like whispers. I couldn’t quite figure out what they were saying but I definitely heard them.

Our next home, I still heard the voices. Then when we moved again,I was 12 years old the first night sleeping there, I heard noises in my new room. Sounded like sheets ripping, sounded like it was windy, I thought things were flying around the room. I did not see a thing. I was too scared to poke my head out of the covers. My Dad came into my room and asked “What the hell are you doing in here?” He checked to see if the window had been open but it wasn’t. I was so glad he came in because the noises in my room stopped after that.

At 15 years old, furniture was moving in our house down stairs. This time everybody in our house heard it. Even my Dad, who is a strong non believer in the paranormal world. We heard our dining room chairs dragging across the floor. It was getting worse. Eventually my Dad was asking who’s down there and said “we can hear you.” The noises stopped. My sister has heard these noises again, when everybody else was sleeping.

When I was 16, I left home to live with my boyfriend. I experienced sleep paralysis for the first time. I couldn’t move. I was awake. It sounded almost like I was under water. It felt as though my cover was coming off of me, and it felt like someone was in the room with me, watching me at the end of my bed. I experienced this a few more times as well when I was 17. I am now in a new home, nothing as of yet has happened, other than a few unexplained noises. Ever since I was little until now I have felt like someone is always with me watching me. I talk to whatever is here. I have constantly felt depressed. I have wondered what my purpose is on being here. And in the past Suicide has crossed my mind.

Does anybody have some advice for me? Can anybody help me understand what is going on? I’ve tried to research it but it is very difficult to find a lot about it. Can anybody refer me to a book or website? Anyone else experienced these? I’d like to know what’s going on.

    maybe you are psychic and have abilitys to contact the other side!

  2. sharayah says:

    kitti im so sorry this is going on. do you feel this thing been haunting your family or one person before you?(ask) and then you was born and you maybe are just more open to things like that . it kinda stuck to you.do you believe in god?have you try to pray to god?

  3. *CC* says:

    Hey Kitty…I can honestly say that I know how you’re feeling.Cause ya see, I’m going thru the very same thing myself.And have been my whole life. I will tell ya this tho,whatever is around us, I do not feel is good. Not at all. Because anything good would never put thoughts of suicide in our heads-And believe that IS what’s causing our negative thoughts and feelings.Prayer helps usually for me,even tho I don’t practice any religion persay, I still believe good and evil exists- Kitty,don’t give in to it darlin’.

    Rule – no public posting of email address or other contact info

  4. niti says:

    hi kitti…… I think wateva it is it’s probably following from your childhood. y dnt u go a priest or chruch & get urself blessed. I dnt think dat d suicide idea is good,please take it off from your mind. In India we keep knife or keys underneath our pillows to avoid bad dreams or any kind of haunting during sleep. In your case I think you should keep keys as a flying knife can be dangerous for you. Please take care & may GOD bless you. And remember that GOD has given us this life and only he can take it back, so please take care…

    you are you have a connection with the dead and maybe they need your help

  6. Emilee says:

    you are being followed and haunted the ghost must have something unfinished with someone and might need help… they might be coming to you for some reason but you must ask what they want…

  7. AnNa bites back says:

    i agree with queenb.that was my guess.talk to the sapirts and ask what you can do for them.im glad others in your family can here that too know.thanks for the story.please keep us posted.

  8. kevin says:


    Plain and simple you need to give your heart to Christ Jesus. Only He can shield you from the evil forces gathered against you. Only the blood of Jesus works. Just pray and ask that jesus forgive all your sins, and ask that he cover you and protect you by his shed blood. Also read this: christian-faith.com/forjesus/how-to-cast-out-demons#agreed

    And remember do not do this alone. Find help from a church. There are ministries that deal with these issues.

    May the LORD GOD KING of the UNIVERSE bless you in all things. May he cause his face to shine upon you.


  9. Martha says:

    It’s not a spirit askn for help, cuz it wouldn’t be a black shadow or fallowing you, I thing a bad spirit either targeted you or attach it’s self to you since it mocked you scratch you and is putting thought of suicide in your head n it’s probably draining energy from you for itself that’s y your depressed, in order to get rid of it u must go to a church get a blessing and baptized get any futer home blessed have crosses in home a bible n holy water pray n accept God once you do all that belive me u will much happyer Good luck

  10. Lou ann says:

    Kitty u r not alone. These things happen to others also. Read Elaine Mercado’s book gravesend. She had similar experiences to yours. Most of all God loves u. Don’t ever think of hurting yourself. Ask Jesus to live in your heart and He will help u. Sleep with a Bible under your pillow. Also read the Bible. If will help. God bless u. Love, Lou Ann.

  11. Kitty says:

    I know what youve been through.it happened to me..kinda. I have woken up naked before when i fell asleep with my mom but that was when i was a kid..i guess you have a special ability. I know i do but..i learned to hide it. All i can tell you is..not to l0ose faith in God. Believe it or not it will help you out alot.and i doubt youre haunted..i think you just attract entitys and energy like that. . Good luck and never loose faith in God hun. -kitty L. [btw we got the same name :D ]

  12. Shina says:

    I can relate to how you feel for sure, Kitti. My dreams were vandalized by demons… That is a story I will post today and hope what I did to over come it will inspire readers who are in the same frightening predicament.
    I’m not saying that you could be haunted by such things, I’m saying don’t give up. I’ve wanted to end my life too, but I didn’t give them that. Nor will I ever. I’m saying to have Faith. My hope is that you turn to God, though it is your choice, and He will answer you as He did me.
    Keep yourself strong. Believe in yourself. Trust yourself. Most of all, Keep yourself safe in (my hopes) God’s Hands.

  13. Anonymous says:

    this reminds me as what happend to me . just stay calm and if it happens again just say”i know your there and im getting sick of it. could you stop?’ in a calm voice. that is whan i said when that happend to me. they never came back. if it happens to not work may god bless your heart and kill those demons.

  14. Gemma says:

    I’ve had similar experiences so I understand.
    I think this he evil spirit/demon is attracted to your energy because you can sence other spirits.
    I agree with other comments – god can help you, be strong and you can beat this entity.

  15. Sean says:

    Hi Kitty,

    I think one of the reasons that you are experiencing this stuff is that you are open to attack from these beings, and they know they can get through to you since you are psychically sensitive to their presence.

    The best way to get rid of them is to fill yourself up with enough positive energy so that they will stay away from you. For example, some 7-11 convenience stores had a problem with low-life people hanging around the front of the store . Then they started playing classical music in front of the store, and it drove away the sleazy people, but the customers didn’t mind it.

    How to get this positive energy? Tune into the source of universal good — there are many different religions that teach different ways of getting in contact with it, but the important thing is that you find a group that you feel really has something special, and get their help to fill yourself up with love and light.

    It’s not so important which religion you choose as that you can find people who are very deep spiritually. When you can get enough “spiritual light” in you, these dark spirits won’t be able to stand being around you, any more than a person with a hangover can stand bright lights.

    In order to really learn about this, you need to find someone who really knows about it to teach you. There are many people who claim to know about it, so that you will believe what they say and give them power, but fewer people really know about it. Once you find some people who know about real spirituality, they will help you drive away these hauntings you experience.

    People in bad moods don’t like cheerful people, so once you learn to get real cheerfulness in your life, the dark beings won’t be able to stand being around you, so they will let you alone, and you will be free.

    sleep paralyzed is what we call getting sit on by a ghost

  17. kevin says:


    Please don’t fool around with this. Your soul is more important than anything. No amount of positive energy outside of Christ will help. Only Jesus has the power and authority to help you. The blood of Christ Jesus saves any and all souls. Remember demons tremble at the sound of the name of Jesus!

    God bless,

    Dear if u find difficult 2 live, and there is no other way then plz change your mentality of thinking over it. I Think dat u r not being harmed till now so some good spirits hav kept watch on you 2 protect u frm d bad ones and u heart is special for d purpose u r here on earth. Belive in u. Thats all. Take care. C u.

  19. Namenlos says:

    hey you should send your story to the Paranormal Research Society also known for their show Paranormal State on A&E. If they accept it, they will come and research it for you. Maybe you can find answers that way.\

  20. Albert says:

    Hi Kitti my name is Albert and i have been through this kind of things also. These demons need jehova’s energy too feed since jehova kicked them out of the haevens. So they will do anything to get ours, by many ways. Drugs, fear, stress, deppression, our human body constanly realese energy cells ( im in the medical field) and these factors increases this. The more you fear them the more you fell stressed, the more they will feed off your energy. So try to relax, and i know its hard, but its possible.

    Let me tell you my experience and what helped me. First of all there is no such thing as a good demon, they are all evil sick and twisted. They use that method too fool people into beleving that they can be good. That being said, dont ever go see a phsychic or fortune teller anything to do with telling your future or guessing, because those are demons also trying to seem good.

    The first time it happened to me i was high on cocaine, very high, i was laying on my bed when they start pulling on my feet and on my covers, but before that i was seeing shadows flying all over the room. I got so scared that i cried out jehovas name because i knew wat it was already then my mom walked into my room and they left, for a while.

    I was so paranoid and the drugs made it worse. I left to take a ride to calm down but when i got back to my room i immediatly felt a strong energy over my whole body and i couldnt breath, and i ran out my room and it went away. after that its been huanting me for almost 6 years already, to this day. I tried so many things to get rid of it, but the one thing that actually helped asking the jehovas witness for their help. They gave me so much strength to move on and they are real knowledgeable in things like that. Evere since then the haunting has decreassed and still is. It hasnt gone away completely but they said it takes alot of time, as long as you keep your faith in jehova and praying to him.

    So i strongly recommend you look for them, their everywhere and easy to find. One book tha helped me gain alot of strength and overcome my fear to them is ” What does the bible really teach?” published by Watch Tower Bible and Tract Society of new york, inc.
    Also you can go to their website at WatchTower.org there you will find alot of good info as well as peoples experiances like ours and how they over came it.

    Keep your faith be srong and trust me, look for jehova. I will pray for you. Bye and thank you.

      Didnt the watch tower rewrite the bible to there own translation to fit there beliefs? I am not trying to be offensive but why dont you lead her to God and not your own beliefs?

      Forgive my last comment it was not from God and not out of love.

    Hey Kitti….
    i’m erick…and i ever experienced once the same thing as u experienced…hearing noises in the house as someone was there….
    but always have faith in God, always pray to God and ask for His protection, and just think of this……
    “that thing” only make noises, and mean no harm to you, than just ignore it….keep thinking that “i wont disturb you, and you won’t disturb me,i live my lives, and u live urs…”
    just have faith in God….GBU…

  22. Dean says:

    That’s a demonic haunting Kitti. I have experienced this myself and it is not fun. Like Kevin said, only the name and power of Jesus Christ can deal with this thing. That is how we dealt with the demon that was harassing my wife and I.

    It sounds like an attachment has been formed somehow as it keeps following you from place to place. Until you can find out who or what incident gave it permission to come into your life, it’s probably not going to go away completely. If you have accepted Jesus as your savior then praying something like “In the name of Jesus Christ I command you to leave” will send it away at least temporarily. I would also encourage you to play worship music and start attending a church. Demons hate that stuff and it should make it die down at least a little.

    If you aren’t connected to a church, or the church you attend doesn’t know how or doesn’t want to deal with this stuff, then you can contact a demonologist to help you.

    I am not sure if it is kosher to post web addresses in the comments so I won’t post their web addresses, but if you Google Greg Haggart, Keith Johnson, Ronald Dressler, Dwayne Claud, or John Zaffis, you will find their websites which have their contact info. Some of them may even be in your area, or will know people that can help you.

    These guys are all legit and they know what they are doing. Don’t trust just anyone who says they are a demonologist. Chances are they read a book once and figure they’re qualified to go out hunting demons. If anyone wants to charge you money to take care of the problem, they’re a fake and don’t deal with them.

    Hope this helps. I will be praying for you.

    Kiti, At age 6 I watched Rosmary’s baby on tv and saw Lucifer in my dreams. I can still see the dream and his face to this day it was terrifying. At age 9 I played with the ouija board with me and my girlfriend Tammy Chapman. after that she was raped and I was taken away and put in a foster home for 2 years. I never messed with it again. Age 19 my brother dies in a car accident. and all the sudden I was being haunted. then in 2001 after my parents die. I see 3 white orbs in my house. in 2007 I moved and my mobile home was haunted. I also heard voices. heard footsteps, my daughter kept seeing the devil and my oldest who was 14 at the time she was scratched down her back. Then my 15 year old saw the devil telling her to kill herself and she tried. so I believe what you saw. I have also been depressed. I try to remember it is the enemy trying to torment me again. so I try to read the bible and think positive thoughts. put on a cross. go to a catholic church and tell the priest what is happening. put on a cross it protects you in the spirit world demons and the devil cannot touch your body when it is on. they run away from the cross. how do I know I have seen them leave when I had a cross on.

    I agree with Kevin.

    Also, you said you woke up naked? You need to lock all entrences to your house, especially windows. Most likely, it wasn’t a ghost, it was a rpist, and he’s probably climbing in yo’ windows. Don’t let him snatch yo’ people up.

  25. Gerit says:

    When I was about 6, 7 or 8, I woke up naked at night as well. And I obviously didn’t go to bed naked. I went to my parent’s bedroom and I think that’s where my pyjamas were. I’ve also always felt depressed and thought about suicide. I have never seen shadows or heard voices though… I sometimes feel as though someone’s watching me, a weird presence.

    Seems to me that you’re dealing with a demon.

  26. Albert says:

    Hey kitti its albert again. So have you gone to that website i told you? if not u should go. Im just wondering how u were doing and if the haunting had deacreased. Well i hope ur doing better and remember to look for jehova, hes the only one who can help you. always pray to him. thnk you again and take care. bye………. :)

  27. inmotion says:

    Kitti do not listen to the evil ways of albert.jehova is not the way to go.If anything it will make it worse.Go to the site educate your self.there you will find imformation on these things to help you understand and how to beat them.

  28. Apostleled says:

    I descern a generational curse You need to find a man or women of God to break these things and bring deliverance to you. You can submit to God yourself and break these curses but you need someone to teach you who God is and the authority you walk in when he dwells in you. Again I am stating what I believe you should always pray and ask God to confirm things. If you seek God with your heart he will lead you into freedom.

  29. adriana says:

    ok look honey some people are born with spirits. i think that your one of them. it could be an old ancestor. but you shouldnt feel depressed. just know that god loves you and yes you do have a purpose in life. but in order to fulfill it you must have faith. i am also born with something. if anything further happens i recomend teaching those around you how to perform exercismes just for safety. but everything is going to be fine as long as you follow the ten commandments and have faith. i wish you the best of luck (:

    Hello my name is michelle and i am 29 years old and i have been experiencing things just like this all my life. i was so conflicted at times i finally turned to my family for answers at bout age 13 and my family who have not quite experienced the same things they knew somewhat of the spiritual world and shared some of thier experiences to tell ya the truth i think there is some sort of sixth sense that gets passed down thro the generations. some of us have just been born into it but some have brought it on themselves. to those of us experiencing these things either way we have to be careful it is a very potentially dangerous matter. i have tried a lot of different things and yes prayer helps keeping lights on helps but they dont go away they always lurk in the shadows the evil ones “demons” do anyway they love feeding off vulnarability, “ghosts or spirits” on the other hand are a little easier to get rid of but if u feel evil its evil and they are harder unfortunately to shake i regret to inform that i have past my sixth sense to my kids and i had to explain to my 7 yr old son how to keep them away cause he has started goin thro the same things and my ADVICE to him as it is to you KITTY is u kno that bible school song this little light of mine??? use it not necessarily use the song u can if u want but evilness hate the light and especially when u have an inner one so whatever strenghens that light in u let it shine. ADVICE for night terrors and sleep paralysis be aware of triggers or ur feelings i have had it happen so many times i can now tell before i fall asleep if it is gonna happen that is when i leave a light on and try to read something uplifting just dont give up and let them bring u down cause thats what it feeds on til u die!! so dont let it win im not gonna say its easy trust me its not but u gotta go on

    Simply BE POSITIVE AND HAPPY as much as you can. It helped me. I’m also spiritually very sensitive since I was a kid and had lots of bad experiences with spirits, poltergeist or whatsoever. Like getting strangled by some evil spirit, banging on doors every night, grabbing, shouting on my ears, getting dragged out of bed, etc.

    What I learned based on experience is that spirits are always attracted to people filled with negative energy (sad, stressed, vengeful, lonely, pessimist, scared, etc). They become more attracted when your SCARED. Funny, eh. Unfortunately in your case since you’re suicidal then you’ll probably attract more of them. So I suggest keep your mind and emotions intact.

    Here are some things that really helped me:
    1. DON’T SHOW FEAR. Whenever something happens like for example spirits making noise, act like you don’t hear anything or act like you’re getting irritated or mad.
    2. DON’T CALL ON THEM. Just let them be! I mean, it’s no use asking spirits what they need or want. You’ll just attract them. Believe me. Don’t talk to them either!
    3. BE HAPPY! Since they feed on negative energy.
    4. KEEP CATS(?) Or lots of pets. I’m not sure about this but my current residence has lots of cats and I rarely see spirits compared to houses without cats!
    5. Last, exercise, take deep breaths, eat healthy, and BE HEALTHY. This will keep your mind straight. When you’re healthy, you’d store lesser negative energy.
    6. Shake your hands every now and then pointing downwards. This will balance the flow of your energy or remove excess spiritual energy lingering in your body. Keeping too much of this energy attracts evil spirits and omens.

    7. In worst case scenario it would be best to see a spiritist, mediums, etc, and ask for advise. Beware of fakes.

    Take care!

    I’ve heard of that happening, maybe you should get some of those holy people or watever they are called they can get rid of watever is haunting you, and maybe the ghost is trying to contact you, are you able to make out what the voices were saying? And keep a dream diary, i know it sounds stupid, but it will help you recognize patterns and maybe you can get a clearer idea of why you might have a ghost(s) haunting you.
