I am a Christian and have been for 12 years when I first welcomed Jesus into my heart.
As a child I did not know about Jesus and the only way I first knew there was a God was as a child listening to my scripture teacher talk about God at school.
As a Child I saw Lots of what I would call demons. It was like I was just open to see them and I saw them very often.
The lifestyle of some of my family members wasn't great and I speculate that it could have been what was attracting them into the house. But never the less I also believe that demons surround ever single person in the world whether we see them or not as it makes sense that Satan and his demons would do what ever they can to devour any person believer or not with doubts, bad thoughts, and negative energy to bring people to destruction habits to effect their walk with god and to effect others. The ultimate goal of Satan and demons is to simply lead every single person they can away from God and knowing the truth about God.
While Jesus and his Angels are trying to bring us to him. So it's a constant unseen spiritual battle.
But as a child I did see more demons than I did angels. I don't think it's because Jesus wasn't there for me I think perhaps it could have happened for a reason so that I would be aware that they are real and that they do exist.
Prob one of the first experiences I had with seeing a demon was one evening when I was in my room it was dark and I looked out my bedroom window down towards the backyard garden. It's stretched right down the back to where there were some trees and it was always pitch black down there at night. When I looked out my window all I saw was literally Two massive Eyes that were shaped like Cat Eyes. They were yellow and with a black line through both of them. They were perfectly align with one another and appeared to be sitting amongst the trees. I couldn't see a body at all. The eyes were very large I would say each eye was the size of a 2 seated couch almost. Yes they were massive.
I remember being shocked seeing them and I stood there just staring and blinking my eyes and they were still there. So I asked my sister she could see them and she got scared and said she could to. And then we both ran away.
A few years later I saw these eyes again. This time I was sleeping on the top bunk bed and I woke up to the room being pitch black (which I hate, I always need some light) my mum must have closer the door after I'd fallen asleep.
When I opened my eyes I was facing the wall and saw this white thing on the wall. I moved back and realised it was another massive eye just sitting on the wall. But as I was lying down on my side it wasn't horizontal but was ventricle eye. And just one eye. Given the size I understand that one eye was on the wall next to me (top bunk) so the other eye must have been on the wall on the bottom bunk. I was frozen with fear and couldn't move. I tried to scream out for help but the words wouldn't come out of my mouth
Instead I decided to close my eyes and slowly inch by inch turn my body facing the other way round. I was still afraid and just lay there for hours until the sunlight came up in which I gained enough courage to jump off the bed and run out of the room.
I never forgot those experiences as not only did it happen once but twice which confirmed the reality of whatever it was.
I later in life found a book that my mum bought about angels and demons as I was looking through the book I opened to a page where I saw an illustration of the exact same cat eyes I saw twice as a child. The illustration was of two large cat eyes with a black Misty body which didn't have a form. It spoke of it as a demon that is also known as "the boogey man" I know creepy right? As we have all had that story told of the boogey man and then there it was on the page describing this demon as a boogey Man when we would like to believe the boogey man isn't real.
Because I had these experiences plus a few others I started to shut out this ability to see them by ignoring and focusing my mind on other things. I think I also asked God to stop letting me see these things and it did stop. I haven't seen anything for Years as scary but I have still seen black shadows.
I've become aware of black shadows as being demons. I don't see them all of the time but it's when I least expect it. Like I walk Into a room and then see a black shadow walk past. I've also had a time where my partner and I were arguing quite a bit and then I walked into our room and saw this black skinny figure that was misshapen crawling across the bedroom floor and then disappear. Then I understood that the arguing was caused by this demonic presence. When I pray and ask Jesus to clear our home of evil spirits and demons I find it works straight away and we all start feeling a lot happier and a lot better.
It wasn't until a few years ago o felt God reveal to me that I had the gift of discernment. He kind of told me that my purpose was all of that which I saw. But as I was so afraid I just said No I can't do it.
I'm not really sure what it is he wants me to do with this gift but it's not until now really I've started to open up a bit more about it again. I only have because I've read and learnt that as a child of God Jesus doesn't want me to be afraid.
I think I've shut it out as an attempt to protect myself and my family. I worried that if I opened up it would attract these experiences again. But then I also realize whether we see it or not those experiences are happening all of the time around us and if we can't see then we become oblivious to what the demon is creating in our lives.
That's the next thing I have learnt.
I'm yet to pray about it and ask God if he wants me to do this (whatever it is and what to do).
I'm not sure but I've now started to accept and open up so I will just have to wait and see what happens.
