Been friends with a dude since we were young’ns. A year or two ago, we found a common interest in the paranormal (typical ghost paranormal stuff, i hadnt found a way to merge it with the spirituality Id been studying). After encountering something hostile at a different friend’s house, we were both ‘woke’ to the paranormal, though still had much disbelief. (That story may be in another post here, ill reference it right here if it turns into a thing)
He had a specific spook-habit since he was young, and it was never sitting where he could see a window. ‘Scared of seeing something’ was a condensed version of why. Lol its funny, since i was young I always required a door be closed in the room Im in. Guess I had my own spook-habit lol, its weird how that works.
He started talking to me of hearing more noises, an animal running upstairs when all his pets were in his room, getting weirded out in the basement living space, etc. It escalated one night, I was staying in his family room-adjacent living room. My buddies were all downstairs outside smoking. I KO’d on the couch. At one point, i woke up and did a surrounding check.
‘The two dogs were on me, the cats were on the couch, and i didnt have to worry about that thing’ was my thought, then I KO’d again.
My friends kept coming up and waking me up, telling me to quit fucking around. They said they kept hearing a loud banging on the walls coming from up there. Im salty about being woken up, so i tell them to fuck off, and continue about my shleep’n. After that, the haunting escalates a little bit, and a penny is thrown at my friend.
Another night, i stay over. I was about to pass out, and this time i was directed to a downstairs guest bedroom. Weird, never even realized it was there. I lay down to sleep, and I hear a whisper in my ear, couldnt make it out. I noped the hell out of there, and chainsmoked cigarettes thinking about it. I left and was fine, pushed the thought out of my head. Then things get interesting and coincidental.
I smoke on the front porch of where i lived at the time. Peaceful, secluded. I was there, meditating a little, very curious about spirit guides. I asked my spirit guides to give me their names. I heard two, one light one dark. I was still under new age spiritual delusion, and focused on the light one lol. Shortly thereafter, i get a phonecall from my friend.
Basically, it was dark in the living room. He gets a spooky vibe, and hears a scuttling, running full pelt at him. (I find out a lot later, the shape of the critter he sees) it hits him, and hes wracked with all kinds of bad vibes. I tell him come over, and when he does i feel the negativity rolling off of him.
So i bust out sage and an abelone bowl my dead mother gifted me. Smudged my friend and put the bowl under his seat to let the smoke waft over him. He says he feels a lot better, i was confident we were alright.
Then he hears something to our right, and i think nothing of it. The porch did* seem to get darker though. It was a bit cold too. After i stand up to stretch, my friend points to the corner of the porch. I look over, and see the abelone shell, at the furthest corner. A good distance away. Im hit with adrenaline (and what i know now as my aura’s fight or flight). I said saint michaels prayer, asked my mother for aid in severing the tie between this thing and my friend. It worked.
But now the thing was with me. I had my gatekeeper spirit guide giving me solace throughout the time, but my mood and vibe were just baaaad. Every time i went on the porch, i felt anxiety, which im relatively inaccustomed to. The more i focused on it, the clearer it looked. Four legged, pasty tan skin, scorpionlike. I tried to turn my aura to fire and burn it, but had no effect i was scaring both myself and the thing.
The more i thought on it, the more i saw how in my minds eye it was pacing, and seemed to be snarling. It was like an animal backed into a corner. So one day I empathised. I went outside and made contact. Gave it apologies, and understanding of the situation, and then prayed to jesus and michael for the creature to be taken away in peace, to wherever/whatever would heal it and raise its vibration (supa new age right? Felt good at the time). In the same time period, my friend called it back to him unbeknownst to me due to its effects on my mood.
Fast forward a month or two, and i have 3 dreams, one every night, where Im investigating a different haunted place, and Ive got a very tan woman as my partner. Each dream, i get more confident in the investigation. On the third, she says she thinks the thing is mad at me. I say i dont give a damn, and she laughs and i wake up.
A few days after that, i call my buddy and tell him about it one night. He then gets shook, and says hes seeing a shadow figure smiling from the basement window. Initially, i was spooked but he said the smile wasnt dark, and i asked if it was the same thing as before. He said yes, but different.
I give the thing well wishes, believing my purification worked. The thing then does an impromptu seance using my friend. He said it likes me and some other things. Since that, my friend retired from paranormal stuff. Hes heard things, but pays them no mind now.
The other night i actually stayed in the room again. Slept well, but my friend heard a LOUD growl, like a huge animal. I can only assume it was the spirit there pissed off, or my companion spirits telling that spirit to piss off.
