I Wake Up in the Night and See the Face of a Child with No Eyes

Posted on April 11, 2011

Hello, I am an old guy. How old? I served in the war during the Vietnam war conflict (1960 to 1964) and served with the mighty BIG RED 1. I lived through things and seen things that would make a pig puke.

Anyway, I have this problem I wake up in the night and I see this gray slate colored face about 2 feet from my face. It is a child, male and maybe 10 years old. This child has no eyes! Just black holes and a very hideous unearthly grin that goes from ear to ear.

When it happens I always draw back as to strike and it just disappears. Is this a demon? Why does it trouble me?

This happens maybe 3 – 4 times a month. It also follows me as it has happened in motels hundreds of miles from my home. What does this sound like to you folks? Im too old and hard to really be scared but it does startle me when it happens. What bothers me the most is that I do believe it follows me and I dont want to be dropping it off at my childrens homes.

What to do? What to say? What do you think? Thanks much.

    Could he be connected to your service in the war? I’m sure a lot of people must have died in your vicinity, and perhaps one has become attached to you.

    The next time it happens I would try speaking to it firmly, instead of moving as if to strike. Tell him you’re sorry for whatever happened to him, but that he is frightening you and it’s time for him to either move into the light or just leave you in peace. Speak as you would to a child of that age, and see what happens.

    If that doesn’t work, then further measures might be in order, like taking steps to clear any negative energies from your personal space, in whatever religious tradition works for you. Good luck, and let us know what happens!

    I’m only 12, but I’m very interested in the paranormal so please don’t treat me like a joke. Did you visit anywhere supposedly haunted, or disturb anything that might have some connection to the paranormal world, up to maybe a year before this demon-like creature appeared? Try and remember – I’ll discuss it more if you wish when you reply to this comment.

    Col – I’m a retired Sr NCO (AF). I’ve spent many years of my life researching the paranormal – trying to prove something to myself. The only thing that I’ve proven is that there are 2 basic spritual forces that exist in our world – that of good and that of evil. I have some ideas about what you may be experiencing, but i need some more information. When did you start seeing this apparition? Do you always wake up and see it at the same time of night (2 am, 3 am)? What causes you to wake up (do you hear something? feel something?) Is it just a head or is there a body attached? What does it do if you have no reaction to it? When the face is present, do you get any sense of it’s character (malevolent? evil? indifferent?) Have you had any other experiences that cannot explain? What is your faith status (Christian? Atheist?) Have you ever been exposed to the occult (ouija boards, wicca, black mass, tarot, etc…?)

    This is a demon you are seeing. I have seen something like this also. Maybe go to church for help. put on a cross for protection. These demons are powerful. It is hard to get rid of them. put on a cross. yell Jesus protect me when you see the demon. Try to say the name Jesus and see if the demon leaves you alone. maybe you were in a haunted location. somehow this demon has attached itself to you. A lot of people in the mental wards are not actually crazy they have spiritual problems or a demon is attached to them. I wanted to say that for others to hear. but with your problem you need to get help. put pictures of Jesus, Mary, in your home. You might have to talk to a Catholic Priest for help.

    • StellaBeckett says:

      I agree with Carri, but at the same time I have to point out that if it is one of the “stronger” type of demons/entities then it is possible that if you yell at the entity the name of Jesus or God, it may come back angrier after a shorter or longer period of time and it will be even harder to get rid of it.

  5. Carri says:

    I have seen this demon and it is powerful. I lived in a haunted mobile home for 9 years. I had no money to move out. different demons tormented me and my children on many occasions. I had an exorcism and could not rid the demon of my haunted mobile home. We finally moved out. Then a gang kept trying to break into my new house. so for now all is calm. we will see for how long I do not know. but I will try to go to Church. I would suggest you do it to. you see the Demon may be after you now that you are older and weaker as a person. He wants to make sure he can torment you and his goal is to take your soul to Hell. These demons and the devil go after the weak. The elderly. single parents. children. and spiritually afflicted. going to church may help and moving out of your haunted home.

  6. stella says:

    you wrote that you served in a war… maybe that ghost or demon died there,in war? I have an advice that might help you. something similar happened to my aunt. I will not tell what,but will told you what to do. go to church and pray for that ghost. Put holy water in your room and put on a cross. If this is a ghost it may help you ( it helped my aunt) but if it is a demon… Go to church and pray to God,Jesus etc. to help you,put on a cross and put holy water in your room. When this ghost or demon appears again start praying or ask God for help. If it don’t help,call the priest for help

  7. 1TxLady says:

    Like Stan above, I would ask all those questions and await your answer.

    Although I respect everyone’s opinions, I believe it is important not to jump to the demonic without a whole lot more information.

  8. the starnger says:

    hummm, i have a different believe. my culture are involved highly with spirit and demons and many other unseen. i was told before that if there is a demon presence, throw some dry corn cernel at them. corn cernel serves as bomb, they will get hurt and eventually leave.

  9. FaerchFan says:

    I have to say you’re only as old as you feel. Try talking to this ghost and see what it wants. You’re very brave because you said it doesn’t scare you. I would scream my head off then again I am 17 and you’ve been through a war. Good luck, sir. :)

  10. Mellisa says:

    could it be one of the black-eyed kids (BEKs)? I’m not an expert, but there’s theory going on about them among those who had seen them. you can google it. no one know for sure what they are. no one know why they would follow someone & what they will do or whether they are bad or not. some people who saw them were asked by the kids to let them get in the house to borrow the phone or something else. the point is they want people to let them in the house, but after that no one knows what they do or where they go. not everyone experince the same thing though. there’s this girl in this site had the kid inside her room but she never let him in the house before. if you had talked to him once & you “paid attention to him” such as let him got in the house. it might be one of the reason why he follows you. stan is right you need to give moer detail about what you feel when you see this kid, or what happened when you first time met him. most of people who see BEKs feel fear.

  11. Carri says:

    Maybe you could give some insight on how this spirit came into your life.

  12. Carri says:

    yes if you yell Jesus Christ the demon if is a real powerful one will become angered. I know because it happened to us. I actually had to move to a new home to get rid of the Demon with the help of a priest. after the priest helped the demon stayed.and was angered. The demon was quiet but came to bring trouble in the real world with problems. We had bullies come at us, home invaders tried to break in, the police keep coming or house. Child Protective services got called on us. It was a nightmare. The demon tried to have all out war with us. I had kids trying to beat my kids up at school and in the neighborhood. A crazy parent tried to run my teenage daughter over with her car. My son got involved with drugs. Every bad thing you could have imagined was happening to us. I had to move out of the mobile home. The Devil and his Demons remain in that mobile home. we finally have peace in our lives. not too many problems since we moved.

  13. K. Smith says:

    Oh it’s definitely a demonic spirit.

  14. Adhinferno says:

    I think it’s not a demon. It’s just a ghost of someone who died in a tragic ways. Is it ever harm you? If not, then the next time you see him, try to talk with him. Maybe he just need an attention or care. Why don’t you try it?

  15. apostleled says:

    Seek Your heavenly Father on how to deal with it. We are all able to be in communion with his spirit. Allow him to lead you into deliverance. Any other thing like a cross, holy water, or pictures of saints may do nothing at all. Think spiritual not natural. You must realize you have his authority if he lives in you. Romans 8- 37No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. 38 For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons,[k] neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, 39 neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

    iknoe wat you mean ive gone threw the same thing once i woke uhp looked to the side and found to see this small kid nd he waz white and had jhus eyebal;ss i guess ii dont know when i looked at it … all i saw was white eyes that freakked me outt but i never did see iit again so i dont knoe wat it cud have been

  17. Cheyenne says:

    First, please allow me to thank you sir for serving our country! Second, perhaps you could try to not strike out at the child, but ask him what he wants?

  18. Skylark says:

    I don`t mean to be rude and all but it is quite annoying how everyone goes to Jesus, crosses, angels, etc…I wish people would just open there minds and accept that not everyone believes in Jesus or any of that stuff, and try to think of the other possobilities that might help rid a spirit. Please don’t take this offencive and I also do relize that some people are offering both kinds of advice and I thank those who do. I’m only saying this because I would like to know the other ways of ridding a spirit besides praying, holy water, priests, etc…and also it must be annoying to the people who say they don’t believe that stuff in their story but people STILL go to all the conclusions that wouldn’t help the person who doesn’t believe in them.

    Thanks for listening,

  19. PaulNugent says:

    Did you kill a little VC back in Nam? Don’t say Jesus to the ghost because he might need an interpreter. Try google translation on what you want to say.

  20. GBMonte says:

    WOW…that is spectacular. To me, the most amazing thing about this story is that you got out of Vietnam a year before the ground war started on March 8, 1965.

  21. Briar says:

    It sounds like something my step-mother would have called the troublers, or the dream-eaters. she used to say she had many experiences with them, they are nasty little beings that invade your dreams, and scare the tar out of you, or atleast try, I’ve had a few experiences myself of almost exactly what you have seen, they take many forms, I’ve seen them in the shape of something that looks like a childs body witha skiny neck and outragiously large head, no eyes, and a chestire-cat like, grin, if you don’t wake up, it’s said that they’ll steal your good dreams and replace them with nightmareish alternitives
