Something in My Room at Night

Posted on March 9, 2010

The house that I lived in all my life until my parents got divorced in 2008 is a strange place, my father still lives there as he refused to sell the house when my mom left that July. The house was built over a piece of ground called in South Africa a “veldt” loosely translated as field.

Things Started happening in my bedroom when I was around ten (I’m fifteen now), some activity might have taken place before then but I don’t remember. Then one night I woke up to a bright light in my bedroom, there was a person standing inside the light, the person reached out their hand to me and I got up out of bed to walk towards the hand. The closer I moved the smaller the light became until I got close enough to touch the hand.

As our hands met, and I say met because this manifestation felt solid, something passed into my palm. My mother came into my room and the manifestation vanished. My mother came in because she heard me screaming which I still don’t remember doing.

The next morning I woke up with a piece of amber in my hand, that I think, is what passed between the manifestation and me. Since then the corner in my room where I first saw the ghost is always cooler then the rest of my room.

Nothing happened since then until a few nights ago when the light reappeared. This time it came up to me and touched my leg, it then did something I was not expecting, it cut me with what seemed to be a razor blade. I tried to reach for my light switch and it wouldn’t turn on, this time I did scream and my dad came into the room. The manifestation disappeared just as before leaving just the razor blade behind this time. Anything of this nature only happens in my room, does anybody know what I’m dealing with? Is it dangerous?

    me too!

    If it has started to harm you, then chances are it is probably dangerous and that you should try to get rid of it immediately. If you haven’t already done so, dispose of the amber. It may be cursed or something like that. Try to get someone to bless the house, or sprinkle salt around (salt symbolises purity). Also, try to find out a bit more about the land your house is built on, as it may help you understand what’s going on.

    Wishing you the best luck!

    I live in South Africa, im 23 and a white male one thing i can tell you is that South Africa is a land full of mystery, O ya and i speak Afrikaans one of the languages in south Africa spoken by the white people. A veld like you described is n large open field.
    normally if you get like the one you are experiencing then it is caused by the land that is cursed by witches, i know it sounds stupid but believe me i know what im talking about. You get all sorts of witches, sanghomas,witchdokters and in other terms traditional healers. So you can go back on the history on that piece of land and make sure that their is not a curse on that land.

    Hope this in formation can help you.

    Good luck.

      That doesnt exactly tell him how to fix the problem.
      We know there is a problem how does he get rid of it.

      • edeonna says:

        get sage and a bowl of water sprinkle salt in the water salt rock if possible walk around your room in all four corners and around the window sill let the smoke from the sage burn in the areas and sprinkle with the salt water while saying a prayer for your god or faith to protect you good luck and goddess bless

      • Nana says:

        The more information you have on something, the easier it is to deal with it. The information given by otto is perfectly relevant, and may help.

  5. cc johnson says:

    that is so scary. have u thought that the ghost might be telling u something?:) try asking it questions

  6. Alex says:

    It might be. Tell your parents about it.

  7. Sandi says:

    Jakki- I am not sure what it is except it has now crossed over to hurt you. The thing that is weird is that it comes to you in a bright light. Then it hurts you. Interesting. The bright light sounds like it might be a way to trick you into coming to it. Be careful. That means you need to take some sort of action. If you wont seek outside help then you should at least take the advice of some of the others and bless the house and you should get rid of that amber. I wonder the significance of the amber. Anyoune know? You should try to get the history on the land. That might help you to figure out a good way to vanquish this thing if you can find out what it is then you can banish it. good luck and let us know what you find and do!

  8. Sandi says:

    Isnt amber associated with healing? I thought it was good for chakras and balancing out the energies in a person. So i am not sure why you were given some. Otto says you can search out a local healer and then maybe you can find out what is going on, I would check that out if i were you.

  9. big barney says:

    big barney says if it cut your leg with razor, then big barney has come to the conclusion it is bad! big barney has determined to bless you with my own thoughts of prayer.

  10. Mara says:

    do your parents believe in this kind of stuff? im a teenager with a ghost in my room too, at first i was scared but i talked to my mum about it and she told me that the best defence is confidence. she said that if it scared me to just tell it firmly “GET LOST”, it might just be a psycological thing but it seems to work when i get the creeps. nothing bad has ever happened to me as has with you but you never know. give it a try.

    also, when m friend was little they had a bad ghost problem and they got a medium in who delt with it and they never had any problems after that.
    try talking to your parents if they are open minded but i’ll warn you, if they’re anything like my dad and determined not to believe, they’ll think your crazy and you’ll wish you’d never brought it up.

    Good Luck.

  11. big barney says:

    big barney believes that you must first get a taoist monk. go to your local temple and retrieve one. now big barney will describe to you my knowledge. now you must order the monk to bless your house. if he does not. then tell him big barney will show wrath and vengeance. once the monk has blessed your house. big barney will assure you that problem will no longer occur

    • NimNod... the She Goat.... says:

      NimNod thnks that people who speak of themselves in third person are comedy.

      NimNod approves of such humor, NimNod has spoken.

      • Lisa says:

        Lisa agrees; Lisa says big barney provides much needed amusing relief from all the serious spooky stuff!

    • Lisa says:

      B.B., just curious……does it have to be a taoist monk? Would a Buddist monk or any other kind work as well?
