When I younger in junior high school, I had a friend over to stay the night. We were sitting on the floor in my room facing my bed talking about gut feelings. I remember looking up to see a “ghost” sitting on my bed. I looked at my friend and she had seen it too. When I looked back, it was gone. We went upstairs and were afraid to go in my room that night. It looked very dark, no light coming from it at all. It felt dark, scary… it seems tall because it had a long torso, it was sitting on my bed, it didn’t move or speak or anything. It just sat there for the few seconds. It appeared to have a sort of cape or hood on, although it also didn’t seem completely 3-d, it was almost like a shadow but more real. I didn’t see an actual face because if I did I feel like I would have remembered eyes or a mouth or something…it all happened so fast…so the best I can remember is it was dark, tall and scary.
I’d never seen anything like this before and I haven’t since. I have had odd things happen though, about the same time in my life. Things would happen while I was left home alone or while I was visiting a friend’s house. I have heard noises/voices and I’ve seen a lightswitch get turned on. It was always while I was home alone or home alone with a friend.
It makes me wonder why me? Why was I hearing/seeing these things, especially the dark ghost thing? I wonder why it was sitting on my bed? Why it didn’t say anything…why it showed itself at all?
I do have an awareness of light and dark energy, but I would have much preferred to have seen something of the light nature rather than something scary.
Inspirations from Binah:
Before we label the being you saw as dark, let us first walk through the events to see if there may be another answer. You first ask, “why me?” Text does not show tone, so we will explore two possible answers to answer your question.
If your question was asked with a tone of fear and concern, then it may be possible that any being that reveals itself to you will be thought of as dark and scary. If your question was asked with a tone of curiosity and wonder, then it is possible that negative energy manifested itself before you. It is important to realize that your emotions may cloud the way you interact with a being that is trying to make contact. Either way, the being came into your home without permission, something that should never happen. Even beings from beyond the veil, like any house guest, should ask permission before entering your private space.
From your description, it appears the “ghost” was once incarnate on this plane. This means that there was probably a specific reason why it showed itself at that time -something it needed help with. When two close friends talk about “gut feelings”, an intimate energy is created and you drop your defenses. The being used this opportunity to show itself in hopes of gauging your reaction.
You have a gift that allows contact from the other side of the veil. Given the repeated events, these beings feel you can help them on their journey and are seeking you out. Ultimately, you have a decision to make. If you feel that your life purpose is to help beings reach the next point on their journey, then you should find a trusted teacher to help you develop your gift. You want someone that is going teach you create “office hours” for contact (since you don’t want beings coming in uninvited), how to establish a strong connection and what you can do to help them to cross to where they need to go.
You may realize that your life purpose does not involve helping these beings directly, therefore developing your gift in a way that helps people on the mortal plane instead. This does not mean that you have to completely shut off your connection, it just means that you must be firm in informing beings that they should go to the light or seek someone that can help get them there.
Light and darkness are spectrums of one another. Without being in the room that day, it is impossible to understand why the being chose to contact you. If you felt it was dark, then its energy did not vibrate in harmony with yours and it is best that you did not initiate further contact. If it happens again before you learn to work with your gift, create a protective bubble of pure light around you, beam love energy to the being and tell it firmly to go into the light.
The choice of how to proceed belongs only to you. Commune with your Higher Self and determine the road that feels right. Your wishes will be respected.
