I was not raised in the truth, but when I was a child I saw many strange unexplainable things in our house. I grew up in a very unloving and abusive household too. My mother was deep into spiritism. I thought she was summoning ghosts. None at that time ever tried to hurt me, they would just scare me or make faces and/or noises. As I got older I shrugged these off as a possible vivid imagination of a child although in my mind today they still seem very real.
When I was 20 I was laying on my couch trying to go to sleep. As I was laying there I started to see several midget like people sitting on the chair accross from my couch where I was lying looking back at me. Then there was this very strong and large being on top of me. I tried to turn my head to see who my attacker was but the strength was beyond human, holding my face in the direction of the stupid midget like people. There is no doubt in my mind that this thing was trying to spread my legs apart. I just kept struggling and saying to myself get up, get up and they all dissappeared. I jumped to my feet.
Ok...now being the logical minded person I was/am, I said to myself...."Was that a dream?" So I layed back down and waited, it only took a few seconds. They all started to appear again, midgets watching this other being physically attacking me. I told myself to get up get up and this time I ran upstairs and layed down next to my husband, who was asleep in bed. To this day, in my mind I believe in my heart with all my logical senses that I was being attacked by something.
Keep in mind, at this point in my life I had never been in contact with a JW, although a Kingdom Hall was accross the street from my house. (I wonder if that means anything) Anyway, I use to think, "What's a Jehovah?"
I had no idea really if demons existed or not. I thought it was an eveil ghost I guess. I never had been attacked since that day and I still dont know to this day an explanation for that phenomenon.
Of course, when I did come into contact with JWs about 5 years later, it all made sense to me. They were demons. This was the first an only explanation I ever had and it seemed to fit so I accepted it. I never told any sisters what had happened, but I felt as though I finally understood what had happened.
I dont know what is out there, I dont know if it was one of the greatest hallucinations I ever had. I guess I will never know.
I hope you all dont think I am kooky for sharing this, it was just one of those strange life expereinces that just have no explanation.
