Had I thought the ghost in the rental house was a one-time occurrence for my son? I might’ve hoped, but when we moved within a year strange things were happening. Lights on where we’d have sworn we turned them off. Items missing. Creepy feelings in certain rooms of the house, but not all of them. And the dreams…my God the dreams were vivid and frightening.

I dreamed my husband had a car accident and Jesus was holding him while I called 911. Another dream, Satan came to me in my bedroom. Lucifer was a woman with black hair, black eyes, wearing nothing but black. She laughed and laughed at me, saying the world was going to hell just the way she envisioned.

Then my son, B, would stand at the kitchen window and ask if I saw the people staring at him outside. I never did see them. Sometimes he’d ask if the ‘white man and black man’ could come inside and play with him. I always said no. Sometimes he’d play in the yard, dig a hole and say he and Jesus were planting flowers. Other times he just “talked” to Jesus or Jacob Trent, who was his imaginary friend. Personally, I don’t think he was all that imaginary.

Other times my son would beg us not to make him go to bed because of the guy in his room with green hair and red eyes. He wasn’t just scared of ‘the man’, but terrified of him. He’d sob and plead with us not to make him go to bed with ‘the man’. We moved his bedroom to what we called the “guest room” down the hall and things got better for a short period of time. Then they started right back up again.

Within 3-4 months of the green-haired red-eyed man making an appearance, B began having grand mal seizures. No idea if the two were related. But I can tell you this…I always felt like there was a battle between good and evil going on in that home. Like the attacks coming at us were of a demonic nature. I’m not an overly religious person even though I have a Baptist preacher as a dad and a grandmother who is a very upstanding and devout Christian woman. But the only way I was able to get ‘the man’ to stop visiting my son was to take him to church. I even prayed with B at night, and he always asked God to protect him from ‘the man’. Nothing will humble you like your child praying for protection from something you cannot see. And that is the same basis for my Road to Hell series, a mother who is struggling with trying to protect her son from a supernatural interference she doesn’t understand.

I’m not sure what was in that home, but that whole area gave off bad vibes. First the rental home experience that I mentioned yesterday, and then this going on. The two residences were less than 20 minutes apart.

We’ve been gone from that area for 9 years, this time a 2-hour move away from the homes mentioned above and yesterday. But the differences between those homes and here are staggering. Yeah, we’ve had ghostly interactions, but nothing of a hostile nature. It’s refreshing! And B stopped having seizures altogether and was taken off his medication. Were the two related? Again, I can’t say, but the coincidences are frightening. 

I'd love to hear your thoughts and/or experiences!

Book 1 Road to Hell series

BLURB (horromance - a mix of horror and romance):

Where does the road to Hell begin?

What happens when your son turns homicidal overnight and your husband disappears on his way to work? Do you cower in fear or fight for your life? Madison Wescott fights against the odds. Distrustful of a God she doesn't believe in, she finds herself face-to-face with a world she didn't know existed and discovers her own soul is darkened with demonic connections.

With good intentions? Or by demonic design?

Phoenix Birmingham bursts into Madison’s life in a whirlwind of sarcasm and sexual appeal. A hero for the masses—and for her jaded heart—but few will ever know the sacrifices he has made or the sacrifices to come. Discovering her entire life has been influenced by multifaceted paranormal beings, Madison is determined to defeat the apocalyptic blueprint fate has decreed, but only one man dares to challenge the supernatural forces manipulating them. Even with Phoenix's aid, can destiny be denied? Or will demonic design prevail while they pay the crucial price with their souls?

In a small, sleepy Alabama town the battle for mankind's liberty has begun...

Pandora’s Box Buy Links:

Book 2 Road to Hell series


Hell’s become more than just a playground for the wicked…

Going to Hell was supposed to save Madison, but knowing she’s dead because of his failure leaves Nix with only one thing to live for. Revenge. With Micah’s help he learns to use his Messianic power. Anything for Mads has become his mantra, even if it means killing innocents to gather the power he needs to succeed. A tsunami he unleashes on a Gulf Coast city is stopped with magical interference, and Nix is more than surprised to feel Madison in the opposing magic. Can he and Micah set a trap to lure her out?

Pandora’s Box…once you open it, there’s no turning back!

Madison has done the unthinkable, opened Pandora’s Box to save Nix from Hell. And failed. She’s willing to risk her own life to rescue Nix, but she worries about the welfare of her accomplice in the mission and leaving her son behind. Following up on a lead, she’s ambushed by Nix and Micah. Shocked and hurt to discover Nix has become a willing participant of Hell, she’s more certain than ever she won’t escape the demonic fate her husband outlined for her. While in Hell, she discovers denying the emergence of her succubus is futile, which means getting Nix out of Hell after embracing her inner demon just became a very real dilemma…

i have a cousin as a priest. i never thought about spirits too much, but there was a period in our lives with curious bad luck and he said we should cleanse our house of hostile appareances, because the two could be related... and this came from a priest... now, that scared me.

As I said in my previous comments, I have no experience with ghosts either I have dealt with such issues. But your posts got me thinking.

some areas are full of negativity and some are the exact opposite and children sensitive to those influences will be hit the hardest with them. Thankfully all of our encounters have been a benign influence.

All I can say, is if the seizures and the spiritual visitors were in any way connected thankfully you were able to move away, and glad that there was no permanent damage caused.

I think I told my story in the Brigade once, but I don't know... but I totally believe the kind of things you're talking about... I live on a piece of land that my great-aunt owns, and there are 5 houses on it, 4 of which have had to be blessed. I am a magnet for mean spirit/demonic crap. I hate it. I can't imagine being a child going through that... I am so sorry your son had to.
