Ok I lived in Chesapeake, Virginia at the time in an apartment complex I would say about a little over 3 years ago. Me and my husband lived there for over a year with nothing strange happening. At this time I was about 6 months pregnant.
I am not sure what started it or why it started happening but a couple of small events happened in my apartment about a month before we started noticing these strange events (My mother came to visit and hadn’t realized our cat must have jumped in the dryer, but found it the next day when it was to late.) I know that may have nothing to do with what started to happen but that’s the only sense I could make from it.
First it started with small things like our closet light turning on. Normally I can sense a bad presence but I felt nothing. I thought there may be something wrong with our electric.
The second night my husband and I were sleeping. I am a very light sleeper. My husband woke up and went into the bathroom directly across from our bedroom. As he was walking back into the room it sounded as if all the pots and pans in the kitchen cupboards had fell out. I jumped up startled as he jumped at the same time. We both walked to the kitchen nervously to find nothing had fallen. I tried to make excuses for this also like it could have been a neighbor but we had lived there for over a year and never heard a thing also it was about 3 in the morning.
The next day as I got out of work earlier then my husband I had just gotten home and went to change. We had a huge stainless steel garbage can that can no way fall on its own… as soon as I walked out of my room it fell as if someone pushed it with force. I tried to ignore it again trying to think of another excuse.
I sat on the couch and turned the TV on. I then heard a very loud pop in the kitchen I walked in to find the Gatorade bottle I had set down when I got home, it looked as if someone had squeezed it and the plastic was popping back out. It normally takes a lot to scare me, but at this point I started to have a bad feeling and feel uncomfortable.
In the mornings as I was leaving for work I would check everything, stove, curling iron, anything to make sure it was off since I had a little puppy and for some reason was feeling paranoid… it could have very well been the pregnancy.
A couple days later I carved a pumpkin and put a small candle in it. I had it lit for sometime. We had a store right next store so I left to grab something, I was gone for about 5 minutes and when I opened the door the whole pumpkin was on fire. I have always had pumpkins and not once has that happened. Another coincidence… maybe. After that incident I did not feel safe in the apartment by myself.
When I would get out of work I would open the door, grab my dog and go sit down by the water until my husband would get home. The last day that I decided “This is it! we’re moving I’m not living here especially with my baby coming soon,” it was football Sunday, we always watch the games. My husband was in the bedroom sleeping and me and my puppy sitting on the couch in the living room when all of a sudden I heard my husband scream! I ran into the room and there were perfect circles around his knees as if it looked like bad rope burn or some sort of burns, bloody like he had been tied. I thought that’s it were out of here it seemed whatever it is was getting stronger and was starting to physically hurt my family. We left that day and stayed with my aunt.
I did a lot of research and got very little sleep that’s actually how I came across this site. I found out when any traumatic event occurs it has some sort of energy like a magnet that attracts other forces… I don’t totally understand it but it gave me a reason to at least not feel crazy. We talked to a priest and my aunt who is religious in other ways. I’m not sure what happened but my husband went to the apartment, not wanting to ask we went home and things were normal again all the uncomfortable paranoid feelings gone.. no more strange occurrences. Unable to explain it all but that’s my story!
