True Scary Story: They Never Listen

Younger sisters should always listen to their big sisters!

My half-sister, Julianne, called and asked if she could stay with us for a while. Yes, of course. She’d been having a hard time in the bay area of California with the wrong career path (drug dealing) and wanted to straighten out her life. She moved into our home in Oregon and spent the first two weeks decompressing. She had a girlfriend at the time, but wasn’t sure if the relationship would last through the move since Susie was planning a move to her sister’s in Colorado. (Julianne “swaps lanes” now and then as my husband at the time puts it.)

Susie decided to come to Oregon for a visit on her way moving to Colorado. Well, I immediately didn’t like her and had a bad feeling about Julianne being involved with her. I have always encouraged Julianne to be true to herself, whether that is lesbian, straight, bi – or whatever, but I could not be supportive of this relationship and said as much. It appeared to Julianne that I was being judgmental of her lesbianism at the time and she wouldn’t listen to me. I am not against lesbians just this one! In reciprocity, Susie did not like me either.

Susie was trying to talk Julianne into moving to Colorado. Julianne is very strong-minded and no one can talk her into anything that she doesn’t want to do, but Susie seemed to have an influence over Julianne that I found disconcerting. I had to say what I felt. I rarely have premonitory feelings, but in this case they were overwhelming.

I told Julianne that I felt Susie was being influenced by a dark entity, possibly the same Dark One that I believe plagues our family every so often, just for fun. I also felt very strongly that if she went to Colorado she might very well be attacked in some way. I feared for her safety. Yeah, yeah, okay, I’ll keep that in mind – see you later. Julianne decided to go for a week visit and see how that went.

I was on a train to California to visit other family when Julianne called me from Colorado. I could barely hear her.

“Monique! What did you see!? Tell me! I’m scared! Susie tried to choke me.” Julianne was crying.

She told me the rest of what happened. Susie appeared to have become possessed. She started rambling to Julianne and became verbally abusive. Susie told her to jump off the balcony, into the snow; she was saying stuff like “you’re disrespectful; I hate you, go to hell” et cetera. Then, Susie spit on Julianne.

Julianne felt as though Susie was no longer present and said “Who are you?”

Susie replied, “Who do you think I am?”

“You’re the Bad Man!” said Julianne.

Susie walked away. She went into the kitchen and baked a cake for Julianne’s birthday as though nothing had just happened. Later, Julianne tried to discuss the argument and Susie had no recollection of anything!

I felt so bad that I was far away and could not be physically with my sister. I talked her through a cleansing ritual so she could be safe until she returned to Oregon. I also asked if she’d like me to send her some protective energy. Yes, of course. “I should have listened to you!” said Julianne.

Uh huh, why don’t they ever listen?

      Hello bborello,

      I have a situation with my younger brother. He's straight, but has drug issues and is bi-polar. I have a very strong psychic connection with him, although we live on opposite coasts. I just "know" when he's in trouble or something is wrong. So I understand how hard it is to be in your situation. I also often send him protective energy. Right now he has a GF I don't really like, but the poor woman has Stage 4 breast cancer. I have encouraged him to go be with her for the time she has left, because he does love her, and she him. But she left him because of the drugs and personality issues. I don't think he is strong enough to go to her, but am very worried how he will be when the inevitable happens. Sometimes we must accept there is nothing we can do, but I sure know how hard it is when it's somebody we love so much we want to protect them. I wish you all the best.
