I had a cushion placed over my head once with no-one else in the flat :D (not to smother me, more to cocoon). Once, I woke from a dream about my dad comforting me to a visceral feeling of being stroked on the head and thought he was sitting there. I turned on my side lamp, and saw a dent on the bed - as if someone had actually been sitting there. I watched it until it went back to normal (and the feeling of being stroked faded). After it I thought I should've been scared but I wasn't (and I'm a big scaredy cat). I've come to realise they are either a comfort or a warning (see below) and feel very strongly it was / is often my biological father (deceased since I was a young child). Never tried to communicate, as I have 'known' / 'sensed' in a different way what it is for, and in the warnings, I've often been propelled out of bad situations before they happened. A few of the 'out of situations before something awful happened'; - on way to a treatment, having not long left the house. I felt tugging on my clothes (no-one around, or anything that could 'pull' that strongly), and had an overwhelming sense of foreboding. I sat down for what I thought was a couple of mins - max - under a tree (just a few thoughts through my head about the situation). I lost time, 25mins had passed, and as am always on time for things, panicked and rang the clinic, there was no answer, so I hurried as quickly as I could, turning up what would have been 20mins into the appointment. The clinic was on fire, staff were standing about, as was my therapist, waiting for the fire engine. Had I been on time, both me and the therapist I would've been in a basement room when the fire broke out that would've been very difficult to escape from (turned out there were dodgy electrics installed and it spread very quickly). - just up and walked out of a club one night, said goodbye to someone I knew as I passed, who was surprised - as was I. I said I just couldn't stay, and it was like something lifted me up and propelled me out of there (like when you're young and you walk on an adults feet). A huge fight broke out 10mins after I left, and a few people got glassed (including one of my friends). - Had a similar thing in a shop - just upped and out, no idea why, my friend I was with followed me, we heard a huge crash, we went back, and where we'd been standing chatting / browsing, the wall and heavy shelving had fallen in, and there was a hole where we'd been standing (as well as being crushed, we'd have fallen into the basement). - Also had the 'propelling' thing when a guy I liked the look of started to approach me at a party, something turned me away (felt like someone behind me), out into the garden area, I thought talking to someone, but apparently was by myself. Years later found out he was a very abusive man when we briefly got together (and he related his experience of me that night - he was very hurt I'd just turned and walked away by myself rather than talking to him and he watched me walk off - alone). His thing is / was to get women addicted to heroin by spiking joints (and get them into bed / relationships by spiking them with little amounts of MDMA - which he did with me as I found out after). I found a lot of stuff on his computer one day - after a mutual friend warned me about him early on after we got together - I got some of it translated by someone (he wasn't English), after we broke up, and they told me I was better off out of it - all kinds of weird stuff that I couldn't even understand what the person translating was telling me, makes more sense now. I often think he/ they were funnelling vulnerable young women to who knows what. I left that friendship group as there was a wall of silence around his - and I realised others - really abusive behaviour. A lot of weird stuff happens around the party / club scene that is linked into all the satanic stuff I'm realising, before I just thought it was me. I saw a couple of freeform demons I now know were attached to him, in his flat (in the bedroom specifically), and the last time I saw him, his face was totally demonic, and not like his 'normal' face (in broad daylight - I'd been to get my things from his flat), so I know the 'shifting' thing happens (still see this occasionally, not necessarily demons, animals, child-like faces mostly), and know it's not just a side-effect of drugs etc - I haven't touched anything like that for nearly 20 years. He had a really sly smile, and his face was totally different, I'll never forget it - he knew the game (with me) was up. I realised then those entities need consent - we give our power away in so many ways, and I have do a lot of work on refining boundaries - personal, emotional, mental and most importantly, spiritual (the most powerful ime), as I would give 'consent' subconsciously, I didn't even know I was doing it. Glad to find someone else who has similar experiences, mine - mostly - haven't been damagingly demonic, but I'm always very careful energetically, as I'm highly sensitive, and luckily, intuitively, knew to look into protecting myself, which while wasn't perfect, that focus (and pure intention), has kept me safe as possible (and have had / am on a wonderful healing process / journey). I've never thought to try to communicate, I may do some dowsing comms with it now, thank you :) For me, intuition is the best guide (not necessarily instinct, which can operate from fear, 'true' instinct for me just 'happens' - like the upping and getting out - but comes from a base of intuition for me). That connection to the universe via my own inner realm / higher self is always - and the only thing - to be fully trusted, and am always 'querying' to make sure it is that. I also have a mostly organic diet, and don't do alcohol or drugs (even paracetamol can give me 'imbalances). My mediation and yoga practices are also very 'basic', traditional - I don't do well with mixing techniques or newer adaptations (they can send me a bit doolally), but that's just me, we all have different modalities. I also do 'shadow' work - we hide lots of good stuff in our shadows, and also we're manipulated by our blind spots, so forefront for me is to look out / work on that, it underlies most of what I do - where I go, my shadow goes, and I need to work out what's mine and what's not, what I need to attend to, what I should walk away from - or just observe - otherwise I go into a 'freeze' or 'fawn' trauma response. Boundary work goes hand in hand with shadow work for me. Those realms are very tricky for me, and any work has to be from a base of groundedness in this physical realm, and I don't think there's any one way to do things 'right'. Tthe devil always wears a smile' as a healer I went to (literally a week after I saw his demon), told me, and the more I tread my path, the more truth I realise is in those words If anyone wants a fab book on Dream interpretation, Robert Johnson's (jungian), 'Inner Work' is seminal imo. He teaches a four - step technique to interpret your own dreams and work out what the images mean specifically for you (and how to recognise archetypal ones / meanings etc), and reconcile those into your conscious / waking life (dreams are how our subconscious tries to communicate with us - we ignore it / don't know how to interpret mostly). It's brilliant, and he also has a section on 'active imagination' for exploration but I've never done that - the dreamwork has been powerful enough for me, and I haven't needed to do a lot of it. Even one not very well remembered dream can yield loads. Wow What incredible experiences. I have come realise that we all have our special ways or talents to to tap into our true self and abilities to connect spiritually. For me its frequency. We are gathering now, and sharing these experiences will help us all to find our true path, and those we need to form bonds with, so we can be a combined force. Amazing time to be alive in this realm. 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
