Hey everybody! First post here. Brand new- and I mean started the day before New Years- and had a serious… thing.
Some background: I was in the shower earlier today, trying (and failing) to soul travel around my house. Whenever I did, what I could see was either in blurry black and white or had a blue film on it and blurry. So I quit, and then turned to my water. I casted a minor spell (no ritual or prep, I just gathered and focused the energy) on the water to grant my mind endurance for the trials I was to endure. I put my head under the water, and then slowly brought my head up and opened my eyes.
Then it happened.
It felt like time itself froze for a brief instant, and that I had mentally broken something. Immediately the water turned frigid (I take my showers hot enough to make the steam come off of me) in an instant. So cold that it almost hurt. Also at the same time my dogs started attacking (not playing- blood was shed, in small quantities.) Interestingly enough, my nose also released a gush of blood but stopped immediately after.
Stumbling out of the shower, I also observed something. Some sort of shadow, but very small- about the height of a man’s hand, and as wide as a toothpick was long. It came from above and SLAMMED into the ground, but disappeared immediately.
Since then, I’ve had a headache that seems to appear and disappear in the same exact spot- somewhere on the left side of my head.
I can’t consult my family about this, as the first (and last) time I did I was threatened with excommunication.
Does anyone have any idea what I did? I’m still reeling from the pressure in my head.
