Hey everyone, I'm just looking for ideas on what this could have been:
It was sometime around when I was 12. I got sick one day and things started to happen during and after that. It was just normal sickness, fever,
vomiting and restlessness.
I was in bed most of the day sleeping and I started to dream that I was sleeping on a concrete slab. I would half wake up to roll over and it would
still feel like I'm sleeping on a concrete slab. My movements and everything else felt very slow, almost slow motion but my thoughts seemed to be
going fast. Because I was sick I didn't care much about it, just an annoyance while I was feeling bad. But then even after I got better it continued.
One night I got into bed, lay down and I could feel it descending on me, the bed started feeling hard and rigid. I had the radio on and there was a
song playing. I was listening to the song but then I noticed it started to sound faster, and then it continued to increase in speed until I could no
longer make out what was being said. Then it started to slow down again but it continued to get slower until I could not make out the words again. The
sound speed up and slowed down in a wave like fashion.
Now at this stage I had no idea what was happening, I was just confused so I called to my mum. She came in and I was kind of hesitant to tell her what
was going on because it sounded weird but I just told her that the radio was speeding up and slowing down. I think at first she said "no it's not" but
then I repeated what I said and told her about the bed.
Instantly some sort of light when on in her head and she seemed angry for some reason (found out why later) but she said not to worry. She said she
would pray for me (ok, my mum is not that religious but I know she prays, her mother was and still is to a degree super religious. Back in the day she
burnt some children's books because they were evil etc.).
So my mum prayed in tongues for about a minute. I asked her what was causing it and she didn't say. She said it wouldn't bother me anymore and after
that it never happened again (apart from one time I was just lying in bed one night and randomly decided to try talk to god, so I guess just talking
in my mind with effort and I felt that familiar strange feeling coming back. I stopped straight away and it went away).
So I'm 21 now and a few years ago we were out on my uncle's (mum's brother) boat. It was night and we were up on the top deck enjoying the warm
evening. Somehow ghost/spirit/weird stories came up and I remembered back to my story as a kid.
I asked my mum about it and at first she denied remembering but when I pressed her she gave me some information. I asked why she had been angry at the
time and she said it had happened to her as a kid, she was angry that it was doing the same to me and she didn't want me to go through what she had.
Now that got me really interested and I wanted to know more.
I found out she had to have a sort of exorcism (not like the movies) type session at church to get rid of it. It was hard to get this info I had to
ask heaps of questions and she only answered certain things. She said something about it going down through the family at one point. I asked her what
it was and she would keep saying "I don't want to talk about it".
She said something to do with having seen it so I kept asking what she saw. She wouldn't answer so I made the comment "how do you know it was real?".
She looked at me with a very serious look and said it looked so horrible and evil you couldn't even make it up in your head, she said it would appear
outside the windows, looking in at her.
She said to stop talking and thinking about it (apparently it gives them power) and that was the end of it.
(note: no mental history, no anti-psychotics or drugs, not really religious)
So if anyone has an ideas on what this could have been please let me know
