    One night I woke up and there was a demon in my room.
    You have no idea how much that comment just freaked me out. How do you know it was a demon?
    It felt demonic. I told my mom about it and she said other people have reported the same thing.

    First it was this black shape near the window and then it moved so it was over me. I said the Lord's Prayer over and over in my head until it left. I couldn't see the details of it, but I could see it and I could see it move.
    That makes me want to believe in demons.

    It could have been something else, though, couldn't it?
    I mean, it could have felt and looked pretty demonic, but it could have been an angry spirit, or bad energy. I've heard that when people are overcoming a hard time, they see things like demons and such that really are bad energy being drawn toward them. If that's the case, just stay as positive as possible when encountering another... Why do you think it was there?

    [Sorry, like I've said, this stuff amazes me.]

    It felt like a demon. I just felt it. I'm a Christian, so I believe in demons more than I believe in 'bad energy'. My mother told me people who report seeing demons in dark reported pretty much what I said I saw/felt.

    It was probably there because I was vulnerable and my faith in God was being shaken. That's generally why they appear, I guess. To feed off misery? Or maybe I'm getting them mixed up with dementors.

    Oh, I see. Well, bad energy can mean different things, but I understand where you're coming from.

    I used to be "Wiccan" [Although when I now think about it, I was a disgrace to the religion] One time I left my mind open and forgot to close the circle and my mind... a lot ofbad weird things happened that day. Out of curiosity, how would he get inside you and give you headaches? I'm not sure what you mean.

    I find it kind of scary how things and people can get in our heads and just... do so many different things to mess with us.

    There's this rule in Wica [And Paganism as well, I think] wear each action has a thrice sized reaction. [Did that make sense?]

    I tried to do this spell and I just.. didn't do it right. I didn't close off my circle.
    I got sick the next day. The next Harry Potter movie I was going to go see, I couldn't go to. And the spell... kind of backfired. I got the opposite effect. I don't believe in coincidences, so it really creeped me out.

    I'm just wondering, but as a Christian, do you get creeped out by the supernatural and paranormal?

    For example, there are many Christians who follow the bible word for word, and believe everything, such as tarot cards, palm and tea leave readings, and magick are work of the devil.

    Where do you [any of you, actually] stand on that?

    I don't believe that tarot cards, palm readings, tea leaf readings, or anything like that is the work of the devil. I won't get a tarot reading done or anything because I personally don't feel comfortable with it, but I don't think it's a sin to do so. I think it's partly to do with having an Atheist mother that is very into paganism. I read books about the zodiac and whatnot though. I left my church when they told me I'd go to hell for reading Harry Potter.

    I never really give much thought to the paranormal. I find it fascinating, yes, but I don't know, I just don't. I suppose I do believe in ghosts and lingering spirits, but I don't know really. I'm kind of just on the boarderline. I guess I don't really care because I've never actually seen a ghost. I have felt like I was beeing watched before though, and whether it be paranoia or something supernatural, it was just plain weird.

    One out of every ten spirits that you contact is a negative one.
    And about the thrice sized reaction, it does make sense. It is karma. What you give out comes back to you threefold, whether good or bad.

    Everything happens for a reason. There are no coincidences.
    I attempted a spell one day, to possibly help cure the tension between my boyfriend and I. You had to repeat a line three times, and after every single time, you had to eat a berry. It had to be a red berry, and we had none in the house, so I picked some wild strawberries from our backyard. The spell totally backfired, and the tension between my boyfriend and I got even worse. It lasted for a solid month, and we almost broke up because of it.
    But, now that I think of it...we are doing amazing. I am kind of wondering if maybe the spell backfired to see if it was worth saving the relationship from the tension, but I do not know. Maybe it is just all in my head.

    My mom reads up on tarot cards. I have never gotten my cards read, and I would really like to. My mother and I, both do not think tea-leaf readings are very credible. I am more into animal guide readings. I will ask my mom for one every now and again (speaking of which, I should ask her for one. I have no had one in quite awhile). My mom practices Shamanism, so it is easy for me to talk to her about this sort of stuff.
    I love magick. I believe fully in it. I visit this store called the House of Ravenwood in Yellow Springs, Ohio every once in awhile. It is a Pagan store, and I love it.

    Now, this may freak some people out, but does anyone believe in Faeries?
    I am a firm believer in faeries. I have several statues in my room.

    I dunno about faeries. I used to... but I don'treally believe in them anymore. They definitely are interesting, though. This thread makes me want to find my tarot cards. I have no clue where they are.

    I've heard that it's one out ten spirits are good, rather than vice versa.

    I used to believe in karma, but I don't anymore.

    My mom's boyfriend has this theory [it's buddhist, actually] that people that hurt you in this life are actually friends of yours that you made before you both you came to this side and they are helping you, making you stronger by hurting you. It's like, you made a deal before you were born that you would "hurt" eachother.

    Of course, that brings me to reincarnation. I'm definitely a firm believer in reincarnation.

    That is a very interesting theory. I have never heard it before.
    And I am also a firm believer in reincarnation. I just do not go by the idea of being reincarnated into something lesser of a human if you lead a life of wrong-doing.

    It is one out of ten spirits that are negative. I have the feeling that the spirits that are negative are the ones that were not able to get out of our physical plain, into a better place.

    I believe in karma because of the rare accidents I have seen happen.
    My mom is a manager of a convenience store in Kettering. She was with one of her coworkers one day and they were just screwing around. My mom was mopping the floor, and her coworker stepped down on the head of the mop. My mom pulled it out from under her, and the girl fell right on her butt. Almost two weeks later, my mom was walking out into our front yard, and she managed to trip over the porch and onto the concrete. She managed to sprain her ankle, get a horrid bruise on her knee, and chip a corner off of the concrete sidewalk. =S
    I do not believe in coincidences, so this is where I think karma comes in.

    Hm, that's interesting. I guess I should have said that I believe in karma, but I believe it isn't always existent in each and every situation that has ever been on earth. I think it coexists with other theories, but not all the time. Yeah, I'm not much for the whole "If you are bad, you are reincarnated into... abeetle tree ant!"

    My main problem with karma is that it's like... revenge in a sense. I don't like the idea of revenge, so I don't believe that karma is always existent. As for the whole "1/10" spirits thing... I don't think we're even capable of measuring such a vast area of unknown to be able to give a true number.

    I do not take karma as revenge. It can not be revenge if karma exists in good situations, as well. You could do a good deed for another person, and that will come back to you threefold. Something better will happen.

    I am big on the idea of using an Ouija Board. That is mainly where the idea of "1/10" spirits come in.

    One night a huge black bird entered my room [though my window was shut] then when under the closet, screamed and then disappeared.
    And as strange as it might sound, I see things and have wholes is my mind sometimes. Pieces of experience you just cannot recall, places in your mind that are just blank.
    I don't think aliens would abduct me, I don't know why would God or a spirit want to send me a message, so I'll say that those weren't actually paranormal experiences, I'm just crazay.

    My grandmother on the other hand has a lot of spooky stories about ghosts and spirits. I believe hers because I can imagine why a spirit would want to visit her, I just don't think I'm important enough to be visited by a demon. Why would one visit me if he/she/it could go scare someone cool like Dru ? See, it makes perfect sense.

    My mom refused to let me ever own a Oujia Board. My cousin had one. I don't really think it was a good idea to play with it. Her house was always..weird..though and creepy.

    After my grandma died, I got this little statue thing that if you wound up it would turn and a melody would play. It was an angel and it was one of the last things she ever had. I was extremely depressed after she died and on suicide watch. One night, like a week after the funeral I was trying to sleep and I was angry and said "I miss you so much, I wish you were here still." A few seconds later the statue wound up and started turning and playing by itself.

    Oh, that reminds me! The exact same thing happened to me! My mom used to have this collection of these wind up things like you said, except hers were all hummingbird ones. One time I came home and they all started playing. It happened numerous times. Mind you, there were, like, seven of them.

    She might have been trying to let you know she misses you, too.

    And Lovesick., just because you think you do not deserve to be visited by a spirit does not mean you should not be. It is not something that is deserved. You do not have to be cool to be visited by any kind of paranormal creature. Obviously if that spirit chose you to be the receiver of the said message, then you must have showed some significant importance.

    That's a good point. But, I still don't think everything is a karmatic reaction. But I still don't see how the "1/10" thing can be proven, really, but I understand what you're saying.
