Something Has Followed Me Home!

Posted on July 25, 2010

On our family vacation a few weeks ago we went to a few different historical cities and towns. One of them was Gettysburg.

Jennie Wade was the only civilian killed by direct cause of the battle of Gettysburg, and so of course, her house is said to be haunted. Since I am so in to this kind of thing, my parents decided that going to the midnight tour of the Jennie Wade house would be the perfect thing for the end of vacation since we didn’t go anywhere that I was too excited for.

We were told to tell the tour guide if anything abnormal happened to us while in the house. Needless to say, I failed at doing so. I told her about the cold spot that I felt, I told her about the sound my mother, sister, and I heard, but I didn’t tell her about the shadow that I saw. I wasn’t sure what it was, I assumed that I was playing it up in my mind because that’s what I wanted to see. Then I just thought that it was someone’s shadow, but I was trying to make myself believe that it was a spirit. Now I realize that where I was standing at that point, it wasn’t possible for someone’s shadow to be in that place. How the light was angled the shadows went behind us, no one was in front of me, but the shadow was.

Ever since I saw that shadow weird things have been happening to me. I’m not one to be easily frightened, but right this moment I am terrified.

I’ll be home alone and something will fall over when I’m petting the cat and the dog’s outside. This has happened twice.

At night I’m hearing a thumping that wasn’t there before vacation. It could be the pipes above my room, but they didn’t make any noise before vacation and I live in a new house.

I keep seeing small children out of the corner of my eyes. The Wade house would have children from a nearby orphanage hide under the beds when they were in trouble.

A man, I can feel him touch me.

I’ll be in a room all alone and then faces will appear in a mirror or another reflective surface.

I’ll be in the room, alone or not, and a shadow will come over me. It blocks out the light and it wont go away. I’m sitting in the basement right now, I’m alone, it’s night and there aren’t any windows. It hasn’t happened yet tonight, but following the chain of advents it will happen soon. This happens once, if not more, a day.

I’m terrified. I am absolutely terrified right now. I can’t tell my family, they wouldn’t believe me. Or worse, they might think that I’m going insane, and they might be right. It would be so much easier for me to believe that this is all in my head, my family isn’t in danger, and I’m not sane, then to believe that it’s all real, my family could be in very real danger, and I’m the only one who can do anything about it. I’m thirteen, I’m the baby sister, it’s not my job to be in charge. I don’t know what I can do.

I’ve been trying to work up the courage to try to catch one on camera or to try an EVP with them, but I can’t. I’m fearless in haunted houses where if I catch anything, I know that it’s real but I don’t have to deal with it. Yet if I catch anything in my house, I have to live with it, I have to stay in the house knowing that something is there, maybe able to do harm to us.

Someone just whispered my name behind me and my arm was grabbed a few minutes ago. I’m terrified. I am very religious, and I have a Mary the mother necklace on right now. I’ve prayed to God, to Jesus, to everyone for guidance in what to do, but nothing has happened.

The shadow just came. I’m terrified. Somebody please, just tell me what I can do.

    If I were you, I ‘d tell my parents and ask them for help. If they don’t believe what you said, then you need to find a priest that can help you to get rid of these restless things. You don’t have to suffer all this. Once all the restless things are gone, your life will be back to normal. Don’t let the dead controls your life. Nobody needs to live in fear.

    I will pray for you tonight

  2. Pete says:

    Talk to the spirit(s), tell him/her/them they don’t belong there and they are not welcome in your home, try to sound positive and unafraid even if you are terrified. I can’t help you other that what I’ve already said, but you will soon have help from more experienced people on the forum, keep checking in. and Good Luck Ghost Girl.

  3. John says:

    Try this prayer, and control your fear. Everyone is afraid in these situations, but fear makes you surrender and gives these things power. Refuse to fear it, stand up to it and recite this prayer in Faith. Hope it helps, has for us.

    St. Michael, the Archangel, defend us in battle.
    Be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the devil.
    May God rebuke him, we humbly pray; and do thou, O Prince of the heavenly host,
    by the power of God, thrust into hell Satan and the other evil spirits who prowl about
    the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.

  5. big barney says:

    wow. i feel for you…. really do, but maybe you should not baby sit anymore…what if it is all in your head and you are just psycotic? your either really being tormented by the devils minions or you are a raging loon….either way stop the baby sitting

  6. Cristina says:

    am sorry this is happeninq to you!

  7. Avrie says:

    Hi Ghost Girl,
    My name is Avrie .
    I think my house is haunted by a 9 year old girl named Clara.
    She has walked around my room many times while I was sleeping, grabbed my ankle once while I was sleeping, made shadows in the bathroom and more. I believe she guards me because I care about her. I’m not religious and I don’t believe in God but I do know you can’t give up. Please tell someone, if anyone. Don’t let them tell you your crazy. Your not! Stay near your family as much as you can. Don’t use anything like a Ouija Board, okay? This thing you talk about is either a unhappy spirit or a small demon. Don’t be afraid near it. That makes things worse. God bless you. Keep safe.

  8. AnNa says:

    for some reason dont let it bother you.all you hear are whisperes.you could like pete said talk to the spirts you could stop babysitting and see what happens.but you should say something to someone.but thank goodness nothing bad happened.thanks for the story.

  9. Pat says:

    Hi! You have already gotten some good advice… I would just tell your parents (what harm could it do to get it out…) maybe someone else in your family has experienced something too and doesn’t have the courage to say anything either… I would address the entity and tell it that it needs to go back to Gettysburg where it belongs. Tell it it is scaring you and needs to leave… if after you have exhausted those options; sage the house and the spirit will have to leave….let us all know how you are doing okay???? I will keep coming back to this story to check on you ok???

    Dear Ghost GIrl,
    I’m sorry you are being terrified by the spirits. Please try to remember that Spirits and Ghosts are USUALLY NOT harmtul to those of us still in our physical forms. Most of the time they are just trying to communicate. Sometimes they don’t even know we are heaing them and sometimes they actually can protect us. IF you believe you have some sort of demon that is quite different and more rare.
    Earlier comments from Pete and John are correct, you can either ask them to leave as Pete said or you can pray for them as John said, but FIRST – before you try to make contact you must always first surround yourself with the WHITE PROTECTIVE LIGHT of the Infinite Spirit (God). This way you don’t uopen yourself up to any unwanted entities that are waiting for a door to open.
    Close your eyes and ask our INFIRNITE SPIRIT (God) to send his protective white light to surround you. Envision yourself completely surrounded by this beautiful, bright, warm light – it is beaming down from the heavens all around your body. Feel it, feel its love and protection, smile and Thank the Infinite Spirit for protecting you.
    Say out loud that “this protective white light is stronger than any evil entity and NO EVIL ENTITY can penetrate this light to get to you.”
    Once you are surrounded by the light, ask the spirit or ghost that is in your home to let you live in peace without being scared. Speak openly and tell the spirit what you want and remind the spirit that you are protected and NO HARM can come to you.
    Say a prayer foir the spirit’s soul (they are very appreciateive of prayers-it makes them very happy unless it’s a demon) remember demons are more rare – ghosts/sprits are very common.
    You can live in peace with a happy spirit if that’s what you want to do. Otherwise, just tell it to leave.
    Then THANK the Infinite Spirit (God) for the proctective light and say amen.
    Remember to protect yourself with the white light before ANY attempts to communitcate.
    Love and Light,

    Those things can follow you home. get a priest or go to a catholic church and get help. tell your family. pray and put on a cross. put religious objects in your room or house. but put on a cross for spiritual protection.

  15. Anonymous says:

    hi i know what kind of trouble you are in if i were you i would get out of that house and stay with a relitive and if it follows you there then get a priest to set it free of you but if you dont then try to talk to it yourself. usually ghost respond to evps. if you do get the chance to talk to it then you should set some ground rules with it and it might go easy on you.it might be a kid trying to tell you somthing or it might want to play with you. if it hurts or harms your family talk to a priest or call ghost hunters. i am 13 and i know all about your experiance.
