Time to Change
My name is Jane Doe. I live in Idaville, IN I just wanted you to know in case you ever wanted to actually talk with me or come over. I sure wish I had found out a while back that you came to houses to see about ghosts. I looked on the internet for a long time trying to figure out what was happening in my house and why. It took me several months to figure out why and what was haunting me.
I have always been interested in "ghosts". I would think it would be neat to go on a hunt with you sometime. I don't know if I could do it though. I have read several of your true stories on your site. They are so neat to read. I just found out about your site only by watching channel 18 the other day, "HOOSIER HAUNTINGS" SPECIAL. I loved it! I wanted to see more!
Anyway, I haven't even shared my story with my husband, he wouldn't believe me. I did share it with my stepmom and aunt. They would believe me but as for anyone else, I don't think I had better share it with them. It is a little embarrassing anyway. I just wanted to share my story with you. I know how much I enjoy reading or hearing about ghost stories and I know you do to because of what you do, so I will share my story with you now.
First of all, I am a Christian and I believe in God, the
bible, the whole works! It started out, I was sinning. I can't tell you what I
was doing but according to God it was wrong. It had to do with money and taking
At the beginning when I was started doing "this" what I have mentioned earlier, I noticed that my husband and I's bed would shake just in the night. It was like something was just standing at the side of our bed hitting it just once and then shortly after it would do it again and I could feel the bed move. I would wake my husband up and say to him, "did you feel the bed move?" Well, he was ALWAYS half asleep and said he never felt anything. Remember he doesn't believe in ghosts anyway and he is such a sound sleeper also!!!!
As time went on for several months, it did this every night almost immediately after my head hit the pillow. (There was never any weird happenings during the day!) Also after time, the "thing" started hitting the bed more and hitting the bed a little harder. It just grew and grew, got stronger and stronger over time, just like I told you before that I had just started sinning a little more and more it got to be. (I was not meaning to hurt people or do something wrong, although I knew what I was doing was wrong but I kept going.)
Then, one night later, the "thing" hit the footboard of the bedframe REALLY hard!!!!!!!!!! Of course my husband was in his sleep. Then another night later but not too later, the "thing ? jumped off of my bed or it just sounded like something jumped up really high and landed on the floor beside my bed with a HUGE, LOUD THUD! (I am awake when all of this is taking place.) All these nights I am afraid to go to bed and I couldn't talk to my husband about it. All this time I am trying to figure out what the "thing" is and why it is here.
All that time too, I didn't think about that it could be because I was sinning and maybe Satan or one of his evil spirits had come into my Christian home. I think he thought he "had me" instead of God. I also had then a child under 1 year of age. She cried a lot in the night so I had to get up with her and take her down on the couch to sleep with her for the rest of the night. Well, the couch shook too. I knew it was all me, it was after me and I had to figure out why and still what "it" was.
One of those many nights, month after month it got so strong over me that when I was laying on the couch with my daughter in the middle of the night, I heard "it" growl JUST LIKE A LION at me just one time. It was by my head at the end of the couch while I was sleeping. I did not see it, I looked cautiously and scared to death! That night, I realized, "oh, my God, I had remembered a verse in the bible saying somewhere, when Satan thinks he has got you trapped and you are his, he goes around and roars like a lion, a beast." And that is exactly what I heard.
From that day on, I started getting into the Word, the Bible and praying and seeking and asking God for help to make that thing go away because I knew it was something bad!!!! I was sooooo desperate to make it go away. FINALLY, I realized what I was doing was causing this to come and haunt me down and attack me. Satan THOUGHT he had me into his kingdom. I had brought this all on myself!! And ONLY I could get rid of it BY FIRST stopping what I was doing, asking God to truely forgive me and mean it!! And get back onto serving God totally, and if I sinned again to repent right away and do it no more.
IT TOOK ME QUITE A WHILE THOUGH afterwards to get rid of the thing, which I believe was either Satan himself of one of his demons working for him. I can't tell you how real they really are. I believed in all of this kind of stuff before, but now, it is just too real to me and it was scary. I think God allowed it to happen to me to show me and to make me come back to Him totally. Because I don't know if I would have stopped doing what I was doing unless this hadn't happened to me!!!!!!!
It took about a LONG month to make it go away because it had
gotten so strong over me over the months.
I had to do this night after night but finally one night it
all just stopped! I kept waiting for it to come back, but when I asked God to
forgive me and NEVER did what I did again, it never came back thank God!!!!!
I think it took so long for me to get rid of the thing because for one it had gotten strong anyway and for another, it knew I was scared of it!!!!!!!!! I had to make myself not be afraid of it. I wasn't during the day, just at night. I am still afraid of the dark, always have been and I am 25 years old. I have seen too many horror movies, which I do not watch anymore...only when I was real young. But I wasn't afraid of the thing anymore and now it is gone! It all started around 1 1/2 years ago. I forgot to tell you one thing.... also one night, closer to the end of all of this, the thing actually touched my big toe that was under a blanket! That night was real close to the time when I heard it roar at me. That night I was in my bed, not on the couch. It was the middle of the night.
I have always too had to feel like I had to be covered up to be "safe" at night and keep my feet pulled up to me and that night I didn't. I had them all stretched out. I think Satan used that to scare me because he knew how I felt about that too. I still want to sleep with my feet pulled up against me and even if I am hot, I have to have covers over me from my feet to the top of my neck. I have just seen too many scary movies is my theory why I feel that way. And I am still scared to go outside by myself at night. I am just scared someone could be out there to get me, hiding.
That is MY story.
My grandma, who is still living told me a ghost story that happened to her and my grandpa that I will share with you. It's not long. They just told me one time that a car was heading straight for them on the highway one night and it just went right through them, no harm done or anything. I thought that was interesting.
I thought of one more thing that you might like to hear. It's not much. My stepmom lived at a trailer court at one time and she was coming home one night and started to go up the stairs to go inside and she heard a faint voice say, "deeeeeeeebbbbbbbbbbiiiiiiiiieeeeeeeeeeeee (debbie). And she ran inside!
Thanks for your time and I hope you enjoyed my story. It still shakes me up when I talk about it. I try not to "go there".
