Hello Paranormal Forum, In August 2017 I moved into an apartment..... The following year which I am just pulling myself out of less than a month ago, was one of the worst experiences of my life. When we moved in, a man was beaten to death outside on the pavement by his lovers ex. Shortly after that a 15 year old girl died on the interstate which was well under 50 yards from the apartment. Many other people have died on the highway. On the two sides of our apartment was a motel 6 (crack motel) and a American Legion on the other side. The motel 6 was like a powerhouse to these demonic spirits. Overdoses, rapes, assaults, robbery, thugs, pregnant look outs, hungry fiends who want a fix, illicit drugs, and just general suffering. In our apartment we had several suicides but I will get to that in a little bit. We moved in and it was annoying the proximity to the highway, and to the crack motel. We would have gangsters, thugs, jackers, etc all walking just outside our windows. We nailed black out curtains to the walls so people couldn't look into our home. Further the place floods like a bathtub. They said there was 16 inches of water in there after we had signed our contract! Anyways, my wife starts having dreams of someone standing over us screaming our names for help. I had an experience where both our dogs were barking and going crazy at the door, I thought they had to relieve themselves so I opened the door and took a step outside. Instantly I felt extreme anxiety, adrenaline, sweating. The dogs didn't need to go so I brought them back inside. I got in the shower to help get rid of the anxiety I have, and it helped. I get out and start getting dressed. I bent over to grab some underwear and when I bent over I felt the fabric of my shirt move as a palm of a hand pressed against my back and sent what I would describe as cold electricity like a tazer throughout my entire body from where it touched me. I jumped up and ran out of the room. This prompted us to call the local paranormal society. They collected a lot of amazing EVP's. They placed a camera and the camera was turned off as well as the audio recorder in the room. The audio recorder was turned off as well, and turned back on just in time to get the sound of the camera turning back on. The camera was unzoomed (manual zoom only on this cam) and had clicks like fingernails on plastic as well as a EVP of the same voice of michael saying "I dont know" I assume talking about the camera to another spirit. The sensitive said many things among that a portal was in our master bedroom. Our master bedroom bathroom is very dark and also a hotspot. The recordings we do in the master bedrooms always have cussing, threats, and sexual sounds, sometimes growls. We have been growled at both on recording and with our ears. Mainly when burning sage, palo santo or prayers. These are the inhuman spirits. Anyways, so one day the EVP had crazy laughing (common) and someone said "What's so funny colonel?" The paranormal society got EVP's indicating that the Male whom we found out was named Michael later was a sexual deviant and used sleeping around with women as a weapon against this other woman. Now the plot thickens. Our maintenance manager told me that he had personally found a woman who had shot herself in our building and that a building next to us a male shot himself who was ex-military. We have had someone say "someone shot themselves nearby" on EVP, without prompt. I have also asked about michael shooting himself. I asked him if he regrets shooting himself. He said "constantly". Another male answered "why do you think he is still here?" He would say "I miss tommy" I assumed his son. I had to let him know how I felt because I want to help these spirits.I asked if he was active duty and saw combat, and he affirmed. I asked him if him being in the military was part of the reason he couldn't move on, he replied "it's the price to pay". And "I want a redo", "Im scared". This touched me. I had to tell him as I felt like I said. I replied in another EVP session, "Society is evil, they lied to you the reason you went and fought overseas, it doesn't make you a bad person because you were lied to about the reasons even being there. Yes the things you did in the military were wrong but that doesn't make you a bad person." He responded with "thanks friend". Which is a huge turn around from someone who was usually talking about sex, satan, and control. Also the female will try and coax michael into leaving saying "it's time to go" "let's go" etc, but then michael refuses. I asked him tonight if he missed Tommy. He said "I miss him. Kevin. Kevin and him." So I did a follow up EVP of about 10 seconds, I asked what was there last name? Now remember there is a interstate next to me, so when they answered a female spoke I can clearly tell but it was garbled by loud traffic. I keep asking and I think I got the name "sullivan" but I asked again and then they said "it's what she said" and I asked again and they replied "We already told you twice". I know smartasses right? Another motif, sarcasm. But after that I heard "sullivan" I asked again triple checking, and when I asked again they replied "I dont know" Which who knows why they replied with that. I told him I will find tommy and kevin and tell them their parents still think about them and love them. Although I tried to help Michael at that time, I have since ceased intentionally communicating with him because I feel I have done everything I can to help him. As well, he seems to always choose the dark when given the decision. Sometimes he will say help me, im sorry, and the next time it will be "f you, I changed my mind. Control women. Represent Satan." His girl that he manipulates and wasn't nice to when he was alive constantly urges him to move on but he always says he has a plan. He seemed to be working with the darker spirits but because he was human I urged him to reconsider his actions. Oh well, his loss. If he believes demons really have his best interest at heart he is badly mistaken. My wife and I, mainly my wife were attacked heavily near thanksgiving 2017. The first time the paranormal investigators came as soon as they left the attack began. I took pictures of scratches across my back, above my eye, forehead. She was choked unconscious in front of me while contorting on the ground. She never put her hands around her neck, she was pulling her hair, not holding her neck. I tried to get my phone to record it, and I swear my phone was around me when it started, but during this event my phone was no where to be found. So I went and banged on the neighbors door and asked -in spanish- for the telephone to try and find my cellphone. Around this time a friend comes walking up and I tell her there is an emergency happening and to get my wife and get her into the car outside. I tried to pick her up and drag her outside the apartment but when we got outside she stopped being limp, stopped hyperventilating and stood up looked me straight into my eyes and tilted her head sideways with a curious look on her face. Immediately went back inside and went into the same exact contorted position. I start yelling "we have to leave! we have to leave!" again for like 5th time, and she finally looks up at me with eyes like my wife again and said "we have to leave!" I said "okay finally!" so we drove off about 2 miles down the road. We decided not to bring this to any of our family's houses and to go back and fight. It was her idea, she was very brave. We went back and announced ourselves forces of good and that we will not be bullied and abused. We drew a line in the sand and told them this our apartment, this is our home, our bodies, our lives and they could not do this to us. It tapered off a bit, they wouldn't present themselves to the investigators always. We put holy water on all the windows, doors, walls, ceilings, ground. Burned sage inside and out. Made a perimeter doing a blessing of sage to prevent negative spirits inside the building, I was growled at and attacked during that blessing but I had no fear and stayed headstrong using mental techniques to avoid fear and knowledge that I am a very positive person. We would be growled at mainly outside of 1G the apartment behind us, my maintenance told me he had found a woman who shot herself in 1G and couldn't sleep for like a week. Then we invited our brother in law to come and stay with us. He went psychotic in the master bedroom and was possessed and attacked the family. He spit on me multiple times, and his whole family said that he wasn't the person they once knew. When he would go into that apartment he would go into fits of rage. On the reviews for the apartment, it was a common motif that people would be assaulted by their partner in these apartments. To the effect of several people saying "I have been with this person for years and when we moved into these apartments he started being physically abusive. The apartment only is interested in money and turns down every person to sublease the apartment and I am stuck with my child in a physically abusive apartment." I don't think that or the suicides are a coincidence. Now about 30 days ago we moved out. We definitely had some stuff follow us but hopefully over time they will not come back and find easier sources to feed on.
