Ghosts and Haunted Places
I have never personally seen a ghost as far as I know. My sister has seen more than one ghost in her home. The land where her home is built was known to be a plantation at one time during the 1800's. She has a tree in her front yard that is at least ten feet in circumference. It is huge! But I digress...the ghost story!
Little Ghost Girl
One morning as my sister was getting ready to leave for work she walked into her living room looking for the keys to her car. She stopped in the middle of the floor to stare at a beautiful little girl who looked to be about eight years old. The child looked very old fashioned with long dark brown hair and a cotton sleeveless nightgown that fell to her feet. Neither my sister or the child spoke for a very long moment. Then the girl dematerialized slowly right before her eyes.
My brother-in-law walked into his bedroom one evening and found the little ghost girl standing beside his bed. His experience was similar to that of his wife. Without speaking he and the little girl stared at each other for a long moment before the child dematerialized before his eyes.
The Dutiful Nurse
Suffering from allergies that brought on a severe cough my sister went to bed early but the constant coughing kept her up and down throughout the night. She finally fell into a sound sleep but a severe coughing attack awakened her and as she tried to raise up to get her breath a woman who looked like a pioneer woman dressed in black with a long white apron and cap on her head came running toward the bed with a spoon and a bottle of medicine. This event happened very fast but when my sister screamed in surprise the nurse disappeared at the bed side.
Update: The dutiful nurse continues to make her rounds on the land where she lived so long ago. She is seen from time to time when family members are sick. Coughing seems to bring her to visit. She is also very curious. The land where my sister lives was all one property in the past. They built a house on the section next to where their previous house stood. The nurse comes to look from time to time. I think she has adopted the family who have now lived there for many years.
I have had so many experiences with negative entities that it would not be possible to list them all. You might call me mad if I was the only person to have these experiences but my mother is very sensitive as well as numerous other members of my family. I have never known why this type of manifestation happens to members of my family. It is a puzzle to me.
Last week I began experiencing symptoms of a previous heart problem that I no longer have. As the week passed the symptoms became so bad that I could not sleep or lie in bed without difficulty breathing. Eventually, I got out of bed and slept in the recliner hoping for a bit of relief. All through that night I kept having the same dream over and over. A gray haired man in a suit was standing in front of me and the breathing difficulty became worse. The second time I awakened I understood what was happening and immediately spoke out loud. I do not have heart disease. I am not in pain. I am not having difficulty breathing. I am not having palpitations. I bind you in the name of Jesus Christ and loose a spirit of health into this home. Immediately the pain and other symptoms were gone. I went back to bed and to sleep.
The following morning my mother came downstairs and said, "I had the strangest night last night. Something kept waking me every hour. I knew something was not right but I could not sleep. I wandered through the house all night long." My mother is very sensitive to the spirit world and was not surprised when I related to her what I had experienced. The real shocker was that my husband also found himself unable to sleep through the night. He does not usually know when the spirits are around. This one kept us all awake!
The truly unusual thing about these experiences is that we are devoted Christians and church doctrine does not generally allow for this type of incident. We are people of prayer who are devoted to God, but still have these incidents of this kind from time to time. My Mother has passed through the veil and is no longer with us but she understood these things.

The Nervous Little Man
Familiar spirits are negative entities whose purpose is to attach itself to an individual and learn what the person is doing. They are not particularly powerful or strong. Their job is to listen and learn.
One of my teenage grandchildren came to spend the night with us in the house where we used to live last year. We eventually had to move out of that house because it had mold. At the time I did not know this but I had severe difficulty breathing and sometimes slept in the recliner. I was sleeping when I began to dream. I saw a man walk through my bedroom wall on the side of the room where my grandson was sleeping in the other room. This man walked directly to me and stood staring at me with a terrified look on his face. His eyes were darting about in terror. After a long moment he pulled himself together and gave me a grin of bravado and stared at me. I was shocked by this behavior because I knew what was facing me. Although I was sleeping I commanded him to leave my home in the name of Jesus Christ. I was sleeping when I began speaking but I was wide awake staring at the bed side clock when I finished the commandment. It was 2:17 a.m. in the morning.
This experience may have been a dream. If so, it was a lucid dream and a very strange experience. These experiences do not happen every day. They are not common place. I do not know why they happen to me. I do not know why they happen when I am sleeping. I do not normally have nightmares, but I do have unusual vivid dreams all the time.
At the time of this experience, I was shocked, surprised and amazed. I did not understand what had happened. I now believe that it was a real and somehow my mind was awake throughout the entire happening. Very strange. A little frightening. Definitely different.
