I’ll cut to the chase, Starting last August things took an upswing. Lots of flashes/glimpses in peripheral vision. Jetting “sparks” and other visual disurbances. Increase in anger, depression, hopelessness type feelings. I wanted to keep that to myself so as to not influence my girlfriend who also lives here in any way or cause concern but about month or so ago she came to me unprompted and told me she was concerned because her feelings were falling into concerning areas. In the moment they’re not as obviously “out of line” as they are looking back later. I’ve talked with my gf and made her aware that she shouldn’t feed into these thoughts and how insecurities/vulnerabilities/doubt/guilt etc are used against a person. So we’re being completely open about our thoughts and feelings keeping a constant monitor on things. Two or so months ago I believe I was attacked. I could hear a mumbled, muffled whisper in my right ear, was “struck” around three times as I was half awake/asleep. Primary times of this sort of thing are during that time when not quite awake, not quite asleep, right when you fade off enough to not be lucidly aware of yourself. My gf reports bad dreams. Right around that time I had a “sleep paralysis” episode (during which I wasn’t paralyzed), that is difficult to explain with limited words but culminated in a featureless black figure standing at the foot of our bed, looking at her. Again, I wasn’t paralyzed and was lucid. I reached for something I could use to attack it and fell out unconscious, snapped back to consciousness and it was gone. I’m calling that sleep paralysis even though I’ve had sleep paralysis and it wasn’t like this. About a week ago I was laying late at night next to my gf sort of eyes closed drifting and when I opened my eyes I saw in the mirror across the room, it’s reflection of us, a round red/black spiderlike ball about 2 feet above my gf’s head moving upward. It faded out, it was a glimpse, a long one though, approx 1 second. This all sounds like sleep/dream disturbances but it was very different in experience. I’ve spent years working on lucid dreaming so I’ve become reasonably aware of the different stages of coming in and out of sleep. Lately when just drifting off I experience these brain zaps, real quick. I would equate it to pinching an engine’s fuel line really quick, just enough to make it briefly stutter. As best as I can guess, this thing is sucking my energy. Those are often accompanied by one of those light tracers, zinging off. It happens with differing frequency. It’s a lot like a fly or a gnat at a bbq, very annoying. Cut to last night, for whatever reason I ran a voice memo app on my phone in silence while laying in bed and recorded 2min of silence. When playing it back I got a distinct laugh, and then a 2 syllable grumble I couldn’t understand. I’ve played this for 3 people so far and none of them are questioning or doubting me. It’s not fuzzy, not a “could be” recording. It’s clear and distinct. It was recorded in total silence. I’m more than happy to upload it for you if we can figure out how to get an iphone voice memo file to upload here. I’ve said the Lord’s prayer, prayed in general, spoke the Michael prayer, openly said that it is not welcome and now have 3 other people praying with me as of this morning. I’m on one hand wanting to see if I can get anymore recordings but on the other hand, this isn’t an open discussion, I want the thing gone now. I’m not looking for an apology, I’m looking for it to never be around again. I’ve made this clear and will continue to do so for as long as it takes to sink in. So, you are caught up to speed for the most part. I’m open to any suggestions or similar experiences you may have had and how they played out. For the record I am a firm believer in Christ and His message and have been for about 2 1/2 decades now. I suspect that may be reason for why these sort of things are never shy around me, I have drawn a line in the sand and make it clear where I stand, therefore not neutral or undecided by any means. I appreciate any help, thanks.
