When I was about 7 years old, my mother and two younger sisters moved to a low income apartment complex. As I got a little older, say 10 or so, I
gained a slight knowledge of what drugs were. I took notice that my mother began using drugs and keeping some very strange company. It got to the
point to where I would rebel and express fits of rage. I would even hit myself until I drew blood just to get mom's attention. She was spending so
much time with these other people and began to neglect my sisters and I.
One evening mom had some company over and like usual, they began to have their fun. I had enough and threw one of my 10 year old fits. Mom chased me
to my bedroom where I jumped onto my bed to take what little shelter it offered. She comenced a harsher beating than usual. As she exited my room,
She stood and turned in the doorway facing me. We had a stare-down for a couple of minutes. She was daring me to come out of my room. As she turned
and walked away. A silohuette of her remained in the doorway and continued to stand there just as if mom were there herself. After about a minute or
so, it too turned and walked away. Needless to say, I stayed in my room under my covers the rest of the evening. A couple of other events took place
in this apartment also. One more terrifying than this. Any comments would be appreciated. This was one of the most terrifying events of my
Mom never spoke in tongues. She simply screamed at me and then paused and walked away after a couple of minutes. Later in life, I was able to talk
to her about the events that occurred their. She said that she used to see the figure of a little boy by her bedside at night. She thought I was
coming in to her room at night until she spoke to it ans it didn't respond. It then just disipated.
I have a theory about this. I feel that the more energy a person puts off, that there is a chance the energy can be left behind. Perhaps she held so
much energy, then when she stood in the doorway and stared, it gave the energy a chance to escape. Therefore you were left staring at the remaining
I doubt your mom was possessed. Sounds like your first acct. to being sensitive to a weak spirit. Most human entities require energy such as fear to
survive. Feeding off both energies, the entity couldve took the form of the stronger energy to continue feeding on your fear. You can tell if a spirit
is weak when you ignore it and the "strange" occurences around the house stop. It most likely moved on...
It's nearly difficult for a human entity to posess someone. They are the one likely to present themseves. On the other hand, non human entities
(demons) are unlikely to show themselves, but can possess with ease...plus drug use is one of the mediums in which your soul could be possessed. I'd
check to see who was the previous owner of the home. I bet there's a hidden tale behind it.
You were staring right? You both had a staring contest, she had just beaten you, and you were looking at her intently and she was staring back at you.
What you saw was an after image.
But being so worked up and in so much pain your memory of the experience is distorted, so it seems more significant than it really was. That and you
need to find some way of letting your mom off the hook, because deep down you still love her.
Hit a kid enough and sooner or later the kid is going to think there is a good reason for it.
