Before I begin let me give you a quick rundown of my background before this series of events.

I was a typical rebellious teenager, kicked out of my parents house at the age of 17. At that time my life was at a low point. A friend and I began researching local legends and the paranormal out of boredom really. Nothing real exciting, lost graveyard exploring in the middle of the night, ouija board, and mostly just a strong interest in the occult. We did experience a few scary events, but the overall feeling that we had opened ourselves up to something horrible is what scared us the most. In particular, I remember the feeling of being vulnerable and the feeling like there was something terrible out there and it knew who I was.

FYI, I decided to tell my story this morning because I woke up thinking about this experience and I think I'm only now truly understanding what it was.

At the time of my experiences I was married to my ex-wife and we had two very young children together.

Here we go, the first night of my series of experience went something like this......I was up late on my computer. At the time I was still in college taking some online classes. My computer desk was situated in my bedroom on the opposite wall of the doorway. So, if you were to sit at my computer, your back would face the doorway into my room. It had to have been after midnight, perhaps much later. I was the only soul awake in our apartment, the lights were off, and the only sounds in the home were of my fingers punching the keys on my keyboard. Suddenly, a child's voice came from directly behind me. "Daddy." It was loud, and scared me half to death. I whipped around expecting to see that one of my little ones had gotten out of bed, but there was noone there. I couldn't believe it. Clearly I had heard something. It was plain as day. I hurried into my kids room and there they were. Both of them sound asleep in their beds.

The next morning I told my Mary (ex-wife) about what had happened. She quickly told me I must have been tired and should have gone to bed earlier. I also had entertained that exhaustion must have been the culprit. I went about my day having for the most part let go of the idea.

A few nights later I heard a loud band on either the front door or a wall in the living room. It wasn't like someone's knuckles making the tell-tale sounds of a knock, more like a bang. We lived in an old apartment complex on the edge of a vast field on the edge of town. Our apartment was on the bottom floor with a vacant floor above us. There was no lighting other than a small porch light which always made us nervous coming home at night because it would have been the perfect ambush spot for a robber. So, hearing the bang in the living room was a sure sign that someone was trying to break-in. I grabbed my shotgun, woke up Mary, and she had her cell phone ready to call the police as I checked out the apartment. There was noone at the front door. The kids were sound asleep, we went to bed.

A few nights later, having put the events behind me I had gone to bed. I awoke in the middle of the night hearing something...I put the shotgun next to the bed.

The next evening Mary, the kids, and I had made a pallet on the floor in the living room and were watching a movie as a family. Mary was laying in front of me and was sound asleep halfway through the movie. At one point I rolled over to see the kids had fallen asleep on the pallet between me and the couch. Towards the end of the movie I heard a commotion in my children's room. It was the sounds of movement-activated toys that begin playing songs and sounds when you shake them or bump them. Immediately, I realized that my two year old must have gotten up from behind me and wandered into his room to play. A smile came to my face with the thought. Suddenly, a dark shape darted across the living room, into my room, from the kid's room. I rolled over, both kids sound asleep. This whole incident from the toy sounds, to the shape darting across the room, to my realization that it wasn't one of my children, occured in just a few seconds. Again, I investigated. Tonight the kids would sleep in my bedroom floor on a pallet of blankets.

At this point, Mary still doesn't believe me so I tell my younger brother who isn't sure what to believe. He decides to come spend the night at my house. I am sound asleep when I wake up to someone knocking on my bedroom door. It's my brother. I open my door, he just wanted to let me know that one of my kid's is awake and wandering the apartment and it woke him up. Confused, I asked what he was talking about? He replied that one of my kids was saying, "Daddy" and it woke him up, and I needed to check on my kids. The problem was that my kids were safe and sound and asleep on a pallet in my floor. They had fallen asleep in my bedroom watching tv earlier in the evening and we kept them in the room so my brother could sleep in their room.

Now I have someone that believes me. Over the next few weeks more things happen. Strange things. One afternoon I emerged from my room to find that my daughter was asleep in the sink in the kids bathroom? Somewhere I have a picture of it. Probably on the hard drive of my old PC that crashed. Another evening I came home from work to find Mary asleep in our bedroom and my daughter asleep on the kitchen tabletop? Also, by this time the kids no longer slept in their room, and I had developed a fear of going into the children't bathroom. I was especially scared to look into that bathroom mirror.

One night, I woke up hearing something at my bedroom door. My doorknob was turning, I could see it plain as day. Thankfully, it was locked. Same story, the kids were asleep in the floor on a mountain of blankets and pillows, Mary was asleep, and I'm grabbing for the shotgun. I woke up Mary, who at this point she just rolls her eyes in disbelief. As I grab the still door-knob it twists in my hand. Obviously, this scared the sh#& out of me. A few minutes later I get the courage to have Mary rip the door open with my shotgun trained on the door opening. Nothing there but the blackness of the living room.

I should explain that through this entire event our marraige had been deteriorating. There were fights, yelling, arguing between us. Also, my curiosity of these events led me to think about it a lot. I was back to researching similar stories on the internet. I also found myself watching a lot of horror movies, it was like that was all I wanted to do. I was truly terrifiyed by the situation I was in, my marriage was dissolving, but horror movies seemed like a good idea.

She spoke with a chaplain at the Air Force base that she worked at. He mentioned a simalar story that he had dealt with before. He specifically asked if we were dabling in the occult or watching horror movies. He also specifically asked if there was much anger in the home, and if our relationship was struggling. He told her the child's voice I was hearing saying "Daddy" was no child, but an imposter posing as a child.

Now she was also scared.

The fighting continued as we continued to fall apart. I began finding reasons to leave home.

The last occurance happened one evening as I was leaving to go meet my brother to do some fishing. I left the apartment and began walking to my truck. I had the urge to turn around as if someone was following me. In the window of the second story apartment above our I saw something.

I can empathize. I've had a few unsettling encounters with things.

It's enough to make your heart stop dead, isn't it?

I personally don't think it was a demon...but a ghost...possibly more than one.

I am glad you and your family are ok.

It was the face. It was utterly horrifying. It was staring right at me and it had a smile on it face. I can only describe it as an ashen face, or like a really dark face that had appeared to have a white make-up on. Minimal, or no lips with a mouth full of crooked teeth. If you have seen the movie 'the exorcist' the it would be similar to the face that appears briefly on the wall of one of the rooms when they turn the lights off. I tried to explain it away at first, but the apartment was vacant. The face turned as I walked backwards towards my truck, following my movement. It was clearly watching me with its creepy smile. I got in my truck and did a once around the block drive. I came back home and it was no longer in the window.

I'm not sure why that apartment above us was always vacant. At one point there were people living there...briefly. They were constantly screaming and arguing.

Anyway, we got a divorce. Life has moved on. I have had more scary experience sorta follow me wherever I go. I could go on for

Anyways...believe me or don't. I don't really care. It happened to me, and it happens to many people. There were many other things that occured to me during this time. I only stated the parts that were still vivid enough to give an account in detail. However, I remember the entire few months in my life as living in fear.

There's too much negativity in your home, Don't tell your wife about the ghost because she's clearly not ready to accept that something strange is going on. Don't be scared as well, most of them are harmless and all they do is cause as much fear as possible. If you're not afraid it will stop bothering you, I hope your kids are not terrified.

edit: Sorry about the divorce buddy.

Why a ghost? This isn't something I've really studied much, but it felt like evil. It also seemed to feed off our fear and arguements. What bothered me the most was it seemed to have an affect on the kids. They were always scared, and it was strange them falling asleep in wierd places. They never had much explanation for why either.

Playing with a Ouija board .. what in hell were you thinking
you have awoke a dark entity with it
burn this cursed board asap
if it doesnt work .. move from this appartment
it might stay there (tell the owners that this appartment has been cursed)

This can get very dangerous .. it seems attached to you kids
next it will start touching you and then possess a member of your familly

You are not the only one who had exactly this kind of experience
it always start when you try to contact the paranormal with dark magic that can open portals
ouija boards are like a shortcut to demons to enter this realm
they trick you first to make you think you lose your mind and start having fear
will give it negative energy to become stronger .. since you believe in it now

Before it end with a exorcism ..
you have to do something like getting rid or the board and move aways from this appartment
where did you first play with this board ? was it a your current place ?

Look around all the negative vibration it has made in your house and with your wife
this kind of dark energy only come from pure evil like a wicked demon

Since you have moved from there .. is it all better ?

We have all since moved on. This was several years ago. I have had recurring encounters. The kids have not. I know, Ouija board=bad.

Have you talked to your land lord/previous owners/neighbors about it? Perhaps you should. Check up on the history of the building, I don't believe in Ghosts, just demons.

Ghosts are stuck (for whatever reasons) between this realm and the next realm...some ghosts were headed to heaven ...some to hell.

I suggest that you find someone in your city that is experienced in dealing with ghosts...have them come over and talk the ghost (or ghosts) into entering heaven or hell...their final destination...and they will be gone.

It wouldn't surprise me if there had been something terrible associated with that particular place. I believe we did ask the landlord if there had been a death or murder in the apartment. I don't remember the response, so Im guessing they said no.

I don't really subscribe to ghosts either. I do however, believe in malevolent beings (demons).

Thanx for sharing your mantra with us and spilling your chakras go see a spiritualist

It could be a suicide or murder, this usually opens the door for these 'things' to come feed off your negativity. As suggested above get ride of that Ouija board asap. Your not the first to mess around with one of those things and complain about hauntings, but it still does not explain why the apartment above is always vacant.

My neighbor recently moved out because he was convinced his flat was haunted, I've only experienced it three times over the last couple of years (knocking, doors opening and closing, shadow men etc). I'm guessing the demon just goes around messing with us from time to time but stays in his flat.

hope you can find it and you did not only got rid of it in the trash

You had recurring encounters lately ?
it seems sometimes they do take a break to rebuild up their bad energy since you have moved
since your encounters didnt stop for you .. this thing is still there

You really need to find this damned board to close this portal
i believe it is the only way to get rid of this dark entity

The Paranormal do exist .. just dont underestimate it and dont play with it just to have a proof it exist

There is many people who had such experiences has yours
once you open communication with them .. it will follow you and your kids
dont want to scare you .. but you need to realise the situation
speak to God often and fill yourself with its good energy to fight it

Good luck ..

You dont want to end up possess like this young black men that had no violent profile before
Zombies Outbreak Theory ; Are they Demonic Possessions ?,

tell me if you notice a patern in those case below ..
like something evil and invisible did something to those people

* A Black naked guy that was growling to the cop and continued to eat the poor man face after being shot

He loved God. He always read the Bible. He would give you knowledge on the Bible. Everywhere he went his Bible went. When he left he had his Bible in his hand,” the girlfriend is quoted as saying.

That wasn’t him, that was his body but it wasn’t his spirit. Somebody did this to him,” WFOR quotes her as saying

* A Florida man that tried to eat a police officer ..
apparently bashed his head several time on the cop car .. (doctor below did the same thing .. video)

““Brandon growled and opened and closed his jaw, slamming his teeth like an animal would,” the report said, adding that he also barked and growled from inside his cell.

At a bond hearing De Leon told the judge that he had “no recollection of anything that happened that night.

* A mother of a 3 yrs old child

Officers called to the home early Sunday found the boy's mother, Otty Sanchez, sitting on the couch with a self-inflicted wound to her chest and her throat partially slashed, screaming "I killed my baby! I killed my baby!" police said. She told officers the devil made her do it, police said.

Sanchez, 33, apparently ate the child's brain and some other body parts before stabbing herself, McManus said.

* A man who cutted himself up and threw his flesh to the cops
Police: Hackensack Man Stabbed Himself, Threw His Skin And Intestines At Officers

* A doctor going also crazy bashing his head and spit the blood on the cops faces
(see the video below for the whole scene)
Zachary Bird, a doctor, was arrested for DUI. In the back of the patrol car, he deliberately cuts and bashes his head. He then begins spitting at and fighting with the officer

This is what those thing can do ..
people needs to be aware of not messing with the paranormal .. EVER
In most of the cases i have studied
it always start small and finish violent if nothing is done

I'm with you. The Ouija board has long since been destroyed. As a matter of fact it was home-made by some friends of mine, and I. It was something we played around with prior to my demonic encounters. I believe that I made myself a target so to speak by using it. Or, I opened a doorway that allowed them to get at me.

I think if you go looking for something the ways that I did then you will find them...or they will find you.

I believe it could have been a demon, from personal experience.

Our experience in my home began with a childs battery operated school bus that went off in the middle of the night, when my daughter tried to turn it off it would not, so she went to take the batteries out and there were no batteries.

From then on, we awoke many times to "shouting in our ear" while sleeping, dark shadows, pictures flying off the wall, voices coming from the other room where nobody was at, etc. My son claims it crawled into bed with him one night, felt the mattress and blanket movement. My daughter claims it would mess with the lights in her room and shout her name while trying to sleep and into her ear, and if she ignored it long enough it would go away for the night.

We lived there 10 years, so many things happened.

Demons aim to tear families apart, to destroy the peace and harmony of the family. They also target children and adolescents, as they are more susceptible.

Home made Ouija Boards are even more dangerous
because you made it yourself

Did you talk to your friends who made it with you ?
im curious if they had the same experiences at their home

I never had myself any strange encounters .. nor ghost or voices
had a ufo 15 yrs ago but thats it lol .. (ask denver ahah)
sometime i do ear noises but i never think they are paranormal noises
just the wood cracking . and living room lights flashing
when all other lights dont flash ..
weird yes .. but never though to be paranormal
i need a lot to be excited on something

Just know there is an afterlife with 2 different places
errant ghosts just dont know where they fit in yet ..
still attach to something but they are not hostile
just wandering around where they died
they dont scare people for amusement .. just minding their own busyness
