Gold In Heaven
Hi, everyone! It's the mod. I just want to welcome everyone who's joined so far, and I'd also like to tell you to feel free to make an introduction post. I'll go ahead and make mine now!
Well, I'm a 22-year-old young woman from Georgia, originally, but I've now lived in Illinois for five years. My family moved to Decatur, IL, which is the most haunted town in Illinois (and the Mid-west, if I remember correctly.) Anyway, my experiences with spirits started back when I was 16. At school, one of my friends told me that if you take a necklace and a piece of paper that you have written yes, no, and maybe on, you can talk to a spirit. I was highly intrigued and knew it was something I would feel good about doing, so one day I went home, grabbed my crescent moon pendant, got some paper and a pen, and started, well, doing it. I remember asking the entity some really stupid questions about my friends and stuff, but the one thing I asked it that made me run out of my room in fear was this: "Are you a demon?" It said YES. That scared me to death, because I had never had any type of close contact with any spirits.
After that, I could feel the demon hovering over me wherever I went. It felt like a burden. I was scared and disturbed, and it finally got so bad that I told my parents about it. Well, my mom told me that she wasn't surprised when I told her what I had done, because she said that when I was a baby, she had a spiritual dream. In this dream, she was visiting her grandmother at her apartment. They were talking, and suddenly, her grandmother said, "Wait. I have a gift for your daughter." She went back into her room to get this gift, and when she came back out, she was holding a OUIJA BOARD. So, basically, my mom knew that this thing with me and spirits was something that was passed on to me spiritually, a generational thing, and that it was something I was going to have to deal with in life.
Well, since then, I have had numerous experiences with demons, some being that I have just talked to some using a necklace as a pendulum, others being that I have been tormented by some. Somehow, though, I've dealt mostly with torment, but I will save those stories for another entry.
I do, however, really like ghosts, and the first time I was ever approached by a ghost was this past August. It was the spirit of a little girl, and she wanted my help. I will save that for another post, though.
Anyway, thanks for reading, and I hope to hear about you all's experiences soon. And please, do not be afraid to express yourself. I want this to be a safe place where everyone can feel comfortable talking about things, even if your background or beliefs are not the "conventional." Have a good one, and happy posting! :-)
