From a more skeptical and quantitative standpoint I say this:
The fact that you have a history of Night Terror's and other, albeit mild, Psychological issues make it suspect that what you are experiencing may or
may not be related. I've known friends, (keep in mind this is anecdotal) that will wake up and their brain continues to produce similar illusions that
happen to them in their dreams, i.e. if she was dreaming of a gigantic spider, upon awakening, she is still seeing a giant spider in her room. This is
also similar to Kanashibari syndrome. Your Succubus episode may be more of a psychological manifestation than an actual encounter. I mean, think about
it, the Succubus Lilith, decided that YOU of all people were important enough to attack at night? Seems unlikely. If you were a particularly gifted
Psychic Medium, or perhaps an important figure, I might be more inclined to consider that. However, I take most Demonic encounters with a grain of
salt anyway (however, I do not doubt that the do happen on occation). Take some of this into consideration.
From a more spiritual standpoint (where I stand most often) I say this:
I couldn't agree more with previous posters. I would suggest finding a way to defend your self from what ever negative energies are plaguing either
you, or your home. The fact that your encounter on your porch happens at 3am, is no coincidence. 2 or 3am is prime time for paranormal activity, as it
is when there is the least amount of outside energy interference because, well, most reasonable human beings in your area are asleep. Was there
something messing with you? I would say its a definite possibility, but I wouldn't immediately jump to the conclusion that its a malevolent entity
just yet. 99% of the time, entity's are just spirit people, who are moving objects out of habit, or who want to communicate with the world of the
living. Sure, sometimes an asshole in life can be an asshole in death, but that dosen't mean you are powerless against it. Being an old house, its
likely that you have some unwanted guests there, and perhaps there is even a portal there that sees a whole bunch of spiritual traffic. But there are
plenty of things you can do to deal with this:
You can try Smudging with Sage. (Look that up)
You can try meditating, and getting in touch with your energies and chakras, which will give you a bit more confidence and assertiveness with your
being. Being balanced and grounded is important.
You can envision yourself engulfed in a white light, with a circle of mirrors around you, facing inward. These mirrors keep the good energy in and the
bad energy out.
You mustn't forget that you have the control on the physical plane. Don't be afraid to tell the spirits to stop bothering you.
Try looking for Healing Crystals. Crystals and Minerals have all sorts of spiritual properties, there are several crystals with properties of
protection, check them out!
Since you are Christian, praying certainly doesn't hurt.
Good Luck, keep us posted!
