Reader Submission: Astral Possession


“I’ve had quite a few paranormal experiences starting from when I was a small child. For example, feeling like there was spirits in my bedroom and even seeing a woman floating at the end of my bed when I was 11. I was never frightened though, I always knew they were friendly spirits. However, now it seems I have a dark entity attached to me and my mother.

As a teenager, I experienced astral projection for the first time. I didn’t know what was happening to me. I heard loud popping in my ears and had a tingling sensation throughout my body. I saw my spiritual body start to leave my physical body and forced myself to wake up, which was hard. Every time I tried to open my eyes only my spiritual eyes would open. I tried to yell out to wake myself, but it felt like my mouth was open and no sound would come out. I watched my spiritual arm move in and out of my physical arm while trying to move my body. I’m not gonna lie, it freaked me out. After that, I looked into it and found out my mother astral travels fairly often.

I’m 22 now and recently moved back into the family home after living away with my partner. One night while we were in bed, he experienced astral projection and woke up in a fright. We have been together for six years, and this is the only time I have ever seen him scared. He told me he saw a dark, shadowed figure and it was trying to possess him. He said it was throwing him around the room, controlling his spiritual body, and he had to fight to get back to his physical body.

This happened several more times that night. I knew when because he would start breathing extremely heavily and his body would start shaking. I leaned over to turn the lamp on and would try to wake him up by talking to him and shaking him but he wouldn’t respond. He usually wakes very easily. After awhile, he opened his eyes and told me to be quiet and if it happened again to not to turn on the lamp. He said this because when I did, the spirit looked around to see who had turned on the light. My partner said the spirit didn’t know anyone else was in the room.

I think this ghost may have now attached itself to me. Like I said, I am currently staying at the family home and one night not too long ago I saw the dark, shadow figure hovering right above me. It was only for a second, but I know what I saw. I even saw his face. I was so startled by him I screamed and woke my mother.

After that, I didn’t see or feel his presence in my bedroom. However, my mother now feels him in her bed sometimes, pressed up against her back when she lies on her side. She tells me that she thinks it may be trying to possess her because she starts to feel how she does right before astral projection, but apparently it feels different somehow. She tells him ‘Go away, I am stronger than you!’ but it keeps happening to her every few nights.

Early this morning while sleeping in bed with my partner, I kept hearing someone talking to me. I assumed it was my partner and woke him up three times in a row to ask him what he said as it was muffled. He told me he said nothing, and I assumed I was dreaming. Then I heard the voice clearly. It was a man’s voice, and it sounded like it was distorted by a fan. It was deep, scratchy and quiet. He said ‘sleep… sleep… sleepyyyy.’  He was talking, but it almost sounded like he was trying to sing it like a lullaby. It was the creepiest thing I have ever heard.

I was almost in a state of astral projection, but not quite there, and it’s like he knew it. After my mother thinking he wants to possess her, I worry he was trying to relax me into a spiritual state so he could try to possess me.

Later today, after telling myself I was just dreaming, I told my mum about the voice and how I thought it might have been the ghost. She couldn’t believe what I was describing to her because the ghost has been talking to her as well. She said she didn’t tell me because she didn’t want to sound crazy or like she was embellishing. I had trouble finding words to describe how he sounded. So she told me what it sounded like when he talked to her and it matched up to what I heard.

There is no doubt in my mind that there is currently a ghost residing in my house. And I don’t think it’s friendly.”
