I’ve always just thought it was demons.

I was born in South Africa many years ago, and according to locals i was “met die helm gebore” which mean born with a sixth sense or something like that. My family just brushed it off. I remember having some strange things happen when I was a kid. Like doors opening, shadows and things flying out of closets. A weird one was seeing a woman in a long dress float outside a second story window as we drove by a spiritualist center.
Anyway, it seems to not be something I deal with daily but then there are these intense and terrifying experiences that happen. And I feel like another one is coming. And I dont want it.
We are Christians and praying has stopped or removed or however you want to say it the previous two.
So when I was 13 my dad was gone for the weekend, I woke up in the middle of the night and I could hear breathing and footsteps in the hallway. The breathing was incredibly loud, and it sounded like high heel shoes. I screwed up all my courage and walked to the door to peek out into our 10m long hall. One the way i tripped over my book bag and the noise made the breathing and steps stop. I quickly crawled to the door and peeked around and I saw a shadow move down the hall and out of view around the corner. (thinking about this again is really freaking me out right now) I ran to my moms room and tried to flip on the lights and there was no power in the house. My mom assumed it must be an intruder so she locked the door and we stayed that way until morning. The next day nothing was disturbed expect the trash can in the kithcen was upside down and trash was everywhere.
Sorry if this is too long. There have been loads of little things over the years after that.
Last year we were in Namibia, and this is almost 20 years later, and my husband had gone to sleep and I was next to him playing on my phone. I then turned it off and turned to my side. One of my kids (i assumed) came into the room, pulled the blanket off of me and pushed down on the bed. I turned around to see which one of them it was and the room was empty. There was no one there. The next morning my five year old said he was very tired, as he was dreaming his was playing outside and then all of a sudden he was in the living room (in his dream) and a dark scary man was walking around in front of the glass doors. The following night i woke up in the middle of the night and there was a overwhelming smell of cologne in the room, the next night I could see movement in the corners of the room. The back part of the house felt heavy and brooding. That ended when we prayed and I yelled at whatever it was to get out.
All of that to say I woke up last night in a cold sweat with a feeling of dread. I couldnt go back to sleep for a long time. I am worried about bed time tonight. We are in america now, and I feel like things are not as active here as they are in Africa. But still.
Ive always believed that the active things are demons and we’ve dealt with them accordingly. I guess I just don’t want to deal with any of it anymore.
