I wanted to take a minute to thank you and encourage anyone who has a chance to follow your link to the veeeeeeeeeeeeerrrrrrrrrrrrrrryyyyyyyyyyyyyyy
Long Thread you started. It could take me a few days (weeks,
months.....) to read it all, but you did a magnificent job. The intro is superb, innocent, and precise which invited some exceptional comments. I am
your age and have also had a few such experiences I may eventually share more details about. I have seen what I believed from the start to be a demon.
It was daytime, huge, in public, I was sober (never drank or did drugs anyway), and it remains some 30 years later the most horrifying sight I have
ever had. What confuses me, and maybe you or one of the other great responders can help me with, is the apparent lingering of a next door neighbor's
spirit. He passed away at a young age (30, maybe 31 or 32 at most), and seems to be hanging around the neighborhood. He likes to move things such as
tools or other items I am working with. I have had to become very deliberate and organized about projects because I may leave a screw in a specific
place so I can use it in the next ten or fifteen seconds but when I reach for it I will find it far away from where I KNOW it was left. Assuming I
ever find it at all. The question is, where and what are the things that pose the greatest threat to a person of faith? For me, I have always drawn a
line at ghosts and demons because I don't want to become "drawn in" to a subject I may have difficulty assimilating in whatever self-defense
mechanism I possess. Some great responses here have cautioned against going where you aren't comfortable or secure, so I thought I would ask where
other people put up their own blinders.
Thanks again for your post. I will be looking it over. BTW--is there a way to get to the final page and work backwards? I find that interesting
Sorry it has taken me so long to reply. I've been busy on my other threads. And thank you for the compliment on my paranormal thread. I had no idea
when I first started it, it would go on forever! It has been almost a year and a half now.
You can get to any page you want by going to the address bar, and at the end there is a page number. Just delete the page there and type in the page
you want to see. It took me almost a year to find that out. I had been scrolling through the pages when I needed to refer to a post! What a pain! I
finally sent a message to a MOD and suggested they put up a way to get to a certain page, and he/she informed about that.
As for the boundaries with ghosts and goblins... Not all ghosts are evil. They were once human like us. They just don't have a body any more. It
could be a relative trying to make contact with you for some reason, or it could be a former resident of the home people live in.
So, unless the ghost is causing a major problem, they should be treated with the same respect you would treat a human.
Sometimes they don't realize they are dead, and they move things, or knock on a wall, or anything to try and get someone's attention.
If the ghost moving your things is causing a problem, just tell him out loud that you would appreciate him not moving them. Speak to him the same as
anyone else. Then, if he is making you uncomfortable, tell him to leave; that you don't want him in your workshop.
Sometimes it may help to tell a ghost they have died, and they need to crossover so they can continue their journey on the other side. But, I have
also heard, just recently, that no one should ever tell a ghost they are dead, it they don't realize it. I don't know about that. People have been
helping them cross for ages with no back lashes, as far as I know.
Demons are a different story all together!
You will KNOW when it's a ghost, or a demon by the feeling you get. You cannot escape the evil they
emit. They will scratch you, try to hurt you, scare the wits out of you, etc.
If you ever suspect you have a demon, contact a priest, or a demonologist to come and get rid of it immediately.
I lived with an evil ghost while growing up, as you know from reading my thread. It wasn't a demon, just a mean spirit. I would have zapped him to
the underworld in a heartbeat if I had known how back then. There was no way NOT to pay attention to it... no way at all. Evil spirits feed on your
fear, and this ghost feasted on me practically every day! I was young and didn't have any knowledge how to protect myself, other than calling on my
angel for protection. That worked to make it leave for that night, then it would come back. Repeat.
I'm about out of characters, so I will end now by inviting you to my thread. I, and the others, would love to hear your story.
