I'm not one that believes in the supernatural/paranormal at all, but what happened to me last night at 3am has got me thinking otherwise.
Last night after going to the toilet, I turned the toilet light off and closed the door.
I then went to the bathroom and washed my hands, after that I came back around and noticed the toilet light had somehow turned itself back on, I was
surprised and a little suspicious at this point... I thought maybe I had just left it on by accident.
I walked up to the light flicked the switch, instead of the light turning off the light went BRIGHT, like I'm talking VERY VERY bright, there was
also a very loud bang that happened at the same time... Then all the lights in the house everything went dark... completely pitch black dark.
When this happened I felt so terrified, this did not feel normal in the slightest sense at all... I pretty much turned away from the toilet room door
had my hands over my eyes and screamed at the top of my lungs for my mum, brothers Luke and Andrew.
The house had completely blacked out, it was so dark I could not see anything at all... It was like the darkness was darker then it should be or
darker than normal.
My mum did wake up and when I heard her voice I rushed through the house in the dark straight to her, my brothers also came to me.
I was so shaken up, my mum got a torch and lit candles. We all sat around our dinner table talking and I was explaining what exactly happened. We
ended up checking our fuse box to see if it was our homes fuse that had gone out, It was not our box. My brother Andrew said he also heard the loud
bang and saw the very bright light creep underneath his door when it happened followed by complete darkness.
The whole street was completely pitch black dark, my street and a couple streets around it were out, it was a very isolated blackout. When I was on
the street outside my house a couple of boys rode their push bikes past, I asked them "Is the power out everywhere?" One of them replied back, "nah
it's just this small area". Also one said something like "the power station blew up, that's where we are going now to check it out!". That was it
all 4 of them disappeared into the pitch black darkness, because at this point there was only one street light on in front of my house.
Eventually one street light came on near our house, but looking down left and right of our street it was just completely darkness. As hours went by
more street lights came on. I and my brothers stayed awake until sun rise and then made our way to bed, I opened up my blinds and made sure I slept in
the sun light.
This has made me so incredibly paranoid and scared I now feel broken, I was never one to believe in ANY sort of paranormal/supernatural thing... but
what happened I really feel like something set me up for a very big scare.
I have always considered myself to be atheist and almost agnostic at times but I've felt that god doesn't step in enough if he exists, but a friend
of mine claims that god does step in and he protects you from these evil entities(he told me this after the event).
I'm 22 oldest of my siblings, I had a sister that died who had leukemia back in 2009.
Now because I'm all scared and paranoid I have been thinking back on events that I never paid attention to:
My younger brother Luke who is 17 he has suffered from those sleep paralysis events. He says that he has a dream and it feels like when he walks into
a dark room or a dark place something grabs him and he wakes up unable to move, completely paralyzed and he has to lay there trying to move for
awhile. It's happened to him at least 5 times, I always just dismissed it like what the doctors say, something on the lines of that your mind is
awake but your body is asleep.
My younger brother Andrew who is 13 years old said a few weeks ago he was wide awake and he heard noises that scared him very badly, he said they were
like 'alien' noises and they were just all around him. At the time I completely dismissed it again assuming that it was just a bad dream or
something along those lines.
Another thing that happened I believe it was some time just last week, my brother Andrew he was very mad because recently my mum reduced his computer
play time hours from 7:30pm to 7pm, so when he got off his computer he went outside and was refusing to come inside at all. He was being really mad
about it, he did come inside to grab his dinner though maybe around 8ish and took that straight back outside.
At around 10pm my mum was starting to get worried and told me and Luke to go outside to force him inside, I was refusing at first because I didn't
feel like treating him like an animal. Mum stopped asking and went back outside to try to force him to go inside, when we went outside he was just
sitting on the grass with his legs crossed it felt a bit chilly outside too he was only in shorts.
I tried to talk to him but he was completely unresponsive to anything I said, I pushed him over him and he just fell down like a 'rag doll' effect,
I thought it was odd and that maybe he was pretty much just asleep or something but his eyes were open. I didn't actually think anything of it at the
time, I just thought yeah he was cold very tired and that's about it.
At the time though my brother Luke did express some worry towards Andrew that something was wrong with him, I heard him say it to my mum, we didn't
go into any details or anything just left it at that.
Now me being super paranoid at this point, I am thinking back that it looked like the classic possession that you see in some movies, where the person
doesn't appear to be all there and they are pretty much completely unresponsive to anything you do or say, I brought this up to my brother Luke and
he said at the time he did think it was like a possession but he didn't say it.
We've talked in the past me and my brothers that it seems a little like we are getting haunted but we never took it seriously, some small things
would happen like noises, and some items being moved(not in front of our eyes). Like I said I didn't ever believe in the supernatural/paranormal, now
I really don't know.
I'm feeling incredibly convinced what happened to me can't be a big coincidence, there's just no way... When I flicked the light switch there
wasn't any delay it happened exactly and the loud noise/bang it was just so scary and the light burning so bright.
Since then I've checked the light switch, and the bulb isn't blown, I was expecting the bulb to have blown to see if the brightness was that bright
light thing that I'm pretty sure light bulbs do when they blow.
I can't even be in the dark anymore, I feel I will now need to sleep forever with a light on... I've never really actually been afraid of the dark
until now. I feel I have grown a very great fear of the dark.
I'm generally a logical thinker and I believe in random coincidences, but what happened to me seems too big of a coincidence to ignore.
Now I've already decided I'm not going to dare try and contact this entity, I don't want to invite it in, I want it gone.
Please ask ANY questions, I will do my best to make sure to respond to everyone.
Can someone give me advice on what I should do, even people that don't believe in this kind of stuff please try and figure out a logical explanation
that doesn't go the paranormal/supernatural route if you like but very doubtful of success.
