I had a very intense tingling/vibration session tonight during meditation which finally prompted me to write to you guys on here because many of you can relate to these type of conversations.

I advise you to ask yourself strongly and CAREFULLY, what you are, and what you are going to do about it....
Freaky yes, but the answers within, are 1000's of times more potent than any meditation could be

My mother still suffers from attacks at that house, as does my aunt. I believe that these shadow people gain strength from the use of occultic objects and rituals. In an attempt to get rid of the activity at the house, my mother has burned sage, hung up dream catchers, and surrounds herself with anything paranormal. She has tried demanding for this thing to leave and has gone through meditations and imagining light surrounding the house. Throughout all of this, the shadow person has at times stepped up the attacks, or has remained unchanged.
Others here have mentioned that they have only seen the shadow people while meditating. I believe that all of these activities give them an "in" if you will.
My life has finally been rid of these shadow people and the only way that has happened is from me drawing close to Christ, spending time in the Word, and getting rid of any idols, as well as anything new-agey, paranormal, occultic ect. Like I had mentioned before, I was a Christian prior to all of these things taking place, but I wasn't living like it.

I I was mad as hell when I ran my spooks off and they don't come around much anymore. Nowadays it is just your average poltergeist crap ever once in awhile. Also I would add that meditation is what kicked off the worst experiences for me. Be careful with that stuff.

Certain spirits can and will follow certain people home, for whatever reason. Certain spirits are more powerful than others. Certain ones basically have more abilities than others. How they learn how to manipulate the physical world to varying degrees I do not know, but I know that some are more powerful than others. And there really are things out there that are pure evil, things I would not wish on anyone, even if they mocked such things. These things are just that bad.
It takes someone who truly knows what they are doing to rid a location of spirits, and even many of these people cannot rid a location of purely evil spirits. A place that was never haunted before can become haunted, but I would say that the majority of the time there was something done to bring these entities in. Dabbling in the occult is apt to accomplish this, but sometimes it only takes something as simple as meditating. Meditation opens a person up, or can at least, to such things. It can act as a beacon to certain entities. I don't know how often it happens, but I know it can happen, for whatever reason. So my advice to everyone is don't mess around, even if you "think" you know what you're doing
New Age deep meditation and hypnotism are particularly dangerous. They are not recognized as being channels to demons, but they provide a direct pathway for demonic influence upon the mind. Communication with demons
Meditation is the technique whereby a person empties his mind of all conscious thought, while chanting a series of repetitive words or phrases as many times as possible. Once a person does this repeatedly, he/she will begin to experience the phenomenon whereby the mind begins to lose its normal contact with the body. This phenomena is called an "Out-of-Body" experience, and is very common in occultic circles.
Once the mind loses its normal connection with the body the person then is ready to meet his/her "Guiding Spirit". Christian author, Johanna Michaelson, captures the Satanic essence of meditation and Guiding Spirits in her book, "The Beautiful Side Of Evil". Guiding Spirits identify themselves by name, including Jesus Christ, the Virgin Mary, or one of the Apostles.
The person who is involved is truly deceived into thinking they have just discovered THE one, true way to actually come into contact with God. In reality, they have just come into contact with a Satanic demon, who has temporarily transformed himself into a being appearing very kind, gentle, and wise. The stage is set for these demonic beings to manipulate and mislead their human victims. These people have become demonically possessed. WALK-INS
The human spirit has tremendous power. Because man is in bondage to sin, for him to access now his human spirit with his soul means using the power of the human spirit for greater evil and sin. That is why all religions outside of the Bible and Jesus Christ tell you to meditate by blanking your mind. Why? Satan is behind this teaching because he wants access to our human spirit and the tremendous power it holds to use for His evil purposes.
Since for this reason God does not want us to access our human spirit, the only way a religious person outside of Christ is able to access his human spirit is though demonic power, a demonic spirit bridging the human soul to the human spirit, but under the demonic spirit’s control. For this reason, God in His Word forbids us to access our human spirit.
The Human Spirit and Meditation
During meditation, a person descends to deeper levels of his consciousness where he discovers the psychic powers and spiritual gifts to heal himself and solve his problems. He meets “the god within” who is wrongly regarded as the God of the Bible. It is this “god” who is dark and mysterious, and may leave evil impressions in the subconscious mind of the person.

So.. I don't usually post very often these days, but this OP really was too close to my own experience to ignore it..
I've never been a very "consistent meditator" but I must also say that I have had the perspective of "karma yoga" since I can remember, and view all acts as a sort of "meditation" (though the meaning of that word becomes vague pretty quick) but lately I have had a natural urge to "sit" quietly in the morning and/or at night, and "catch my breath" so to speak.
I've been an "empath" for my entire life, but within just the last few years I have become so sensitive that I sometimes feel like my emotions are hijacked by those around me.. I've never been the most outgoing and social person, but during these same few years, I have both become more capable of being "intimate" with most people, but simultaneously I feel overwhelmed by most people's presence these days, let alone crowds of certain types..
(example: got off the boat from Canada, back in Seattle, and it took almost 2hours to get out of the city due to herds of seahawks fans.. i wasn't even annoyed at the delay, so much as i felt a melancholy and pity for that crowd.. i can't even articulate the feeling.)
my body has also become more sensitive in the same way. I used to eat and drink just about anything i wanted, and my body could seemingly process any combination of food.. six months ago, i had to start seeing a naturopath for heartburn and just overall indigestion with just about anything that was less than healthy..
My ears and eyes have been much more sensitive too. I'm a musician and artist and have always love to make some good cacophony (though i have been known to get annoyed by certain sounds for awhile), lately i absolutely cherish silence. I live on ten acres in the middle of an unincorporated area, and yet i find myself jumping or getting on edge, at the sound of the (maybe) 5 cars (and big trucks) i hear driving around..
Overall, i have no clue what sort of metamorphosis it is, but it does seem to be a definite "change" and I feel that i can relate to what you describe..
let me ask you two somewhat crazy questions:
1.) Do you have dreams where there is a lot of water involved? Not "reoccurring dreams" per se, but almost like a continuing timeline? I would say my dreams of this sort involve a "UFO" of a vague sort, about 90% of the time..
2.) Has it felt like time has sped up significantly.. like the days seem to pass quicker than ever..?
or perhaps this is just something which comes with getting older..?
I'm honestly not a person who is looking for "disclosure" everyday or really subscribing to any one belief or method, but I have significantly expanded my "realm of influences" as far as looking further into Taoism, Buddhism, Philosophy, and ancient bits of thought which have been all but forgotten.. can these changes simply be the physical body keeping pace with the intellect and spirit? or is this truly a change that is occurring within many people simultaneously..?
sorry if my post is rambling, but i would be interested in your thoughts
