This story like all stories you will read here is based on a case that I have personally been involved in. It started like most do, a text on my phone from the groups founder Patrick. His texts are always short and to the point and go something like this when it’s emergent “This person just called and they have a crazy story.” I’m paraphrasing, but for the most part that’s how the ball starts rolling. In this case there was a small boy who I will call “Tim.” Tim was about 8 years old and deathly afraid to sleep in his bedroom alone. It was at the point that his father actually placed a second bed in the room so that he could sleep next to his son.
To me that was certainly an issue, I have children and don’t think that i would ever move a bed into their rooms to sleep. Patrick went on further to say that the family had been experiencing shadows, noises and that at night Tim was behaving oddly. The family had 2 other children one a little older and one a little younger who had not been experiencing much of anything. I asked Patrick to send me photos of Tim’s room taken by the parents. I have a gift of being able to read psychic energy from photos and before we get into a home it is useful for me to have an idea of what me may be getting into.
The room was like any other young boys room, except the two beds of course. I did pick up a little energy from a piece of furniture but nothing that was definitive. After looking at the photo’s I told Patrick to make a date with the family soon and we could go investigate. So within a week or so we were forty minutes south of base in somewhere NJ at an apartment complex to help a family. We met with Tim’s mom and dad first, Tim was out playing with friends and that was good because I was able to get a good read on the situation without him there. Patrick and I carried a skeleton amount of gear into the apartment to use during our meeting and what would be a very brief investigation.
The four of us sat down at the kitchen table where Tim’s Mom and Father both spoke to us and recounted stories of what had been happening. Dad’s stories were the most compelling to me, and mostly due to the fact that he came across as a person who was skeptical of the entire thing, until he had his own encounters. He stated that after a few weeks of Tim refusing to sleep alone he moved into the bedroom and decided he would sleep there to help provide a piece of mind and show Tim that there was nothing to be afraid of, and that’s when things started happening to him.
One evening after going to bed Tim’s father woke up from a sound sleep by an invisible force pressing down on his throat and strangling him. He stated that during the attack he was also paralyzed which he attributed to the spirit holding him down. He said that it eventually got off of him and he was able to get up off of the bed. This was the first of the three major events that happened to him in that room. The second; Tims father woke up from a sound sleep because he could hear his son talking, he looked across the room and saw Tim sitting up, playing with action figures. He told Tim to put the dolls away and go to sleep. Tim did not react at all he kept doing what he was doing, this prompted dad to get up to take action.
Dad walked over to the bed and the dolls fell from above the covers and to the bed, Tim was sound asleep and snoring. Dad said that he could see Tim’s outline playing and as he got the bed the dolls dropped, this was the second time that something had happened in the room that was unexplainable. The last thing that he explained was this; He was asleep and woke up to some kind of noise in the room, as he looked up at the ceiling he could see black long shadows and they were coming from the dresser mirror in the room. He started yelling and the tentacles retreated back into the mirror. This was the conformation that I needed about the feeling that I had about that item.
I left the room and went to Tim’s room, I placed my hands on the mirror and the dresser and got the impression that it had been somewhere else before they had owned it. As in it was used by someone else and not bought from the store. I saw something that was a scary image, and not that it was actually scary but because I touched it and this was what I saw it was scary. Christ hanging on the Cross bleeding and dying. That is how I saw him, not like the crucifix but actually Jesus on a Cross and dying. This was odd to pick up from a mirror and I figured it was to try to frighten me away, picked by an energy or entity that did not want me there. I went back to the kitchen and explained to the family that the mirror would need to be removed.
They asked why and I told them what I had seen, with that they confirmed that the piece was owned by someone in the building that had moved and gave it to them. With that Tim arrived home and I spoke to him for a little bit, I picked up that he was also sensitive to the paranormal and had some strong medium and psychic abilities himself. He was not causing the issue but while he was asleep he was super charging the energy present in the mirror. I explained it to him and his parents and suggested that the mirror at the very least be removed from the room for the activity to stop.
A few weeks later I received a phone call from Tim’s mom, the mirror had remained in Tim’s room until a few hours prior to this phone call. Tim’s father had another bad night and finally took my advice, in the middle of the night he picked the mirror up and walked it out to the dumpster. Since then I have checked in on the family and they have not had any more negative things occur in the house and they have taken my advice on how to help Tim day-to-day manage his gifts. I hope all those reading this join the conversation and start following and asking questions because I am here to help. Keep practicing and don’t doubt yourself!
