Demon Outside My House?

Demon Outside My House?
So yeah, this is real experience, I don't think it's a demon personally, could be a number of things, but my step-dad called it a demon.

So before I moved about a year ago, I lived in this old farm house, it used to be a log cabin still they expanded on it. The land used to stretch for mile,s until, after their dairy farm I think ran out, the owner sold portions of it to pay of debt. The house was rather beautiful, albeit falling apart like mad and the roof about the cave in from the living room because I think hillbillies made the upper floor, it had two floors, not including the attic which was sealed off due to bees making nests up there as well as birds. The hard was about two trailers wide int he front and one trailer wide around the sides and back, this doe snot include the long curved  driveway and barn up on the small hill. It also had a roofed front porch and covered backpacker, so it was your typical southern family home.

This house never did feel home to me when I was outside in the large yard, the front was fine, but it was the left side of the house that was a bit iffy to me. This was the side of the house that his large, toddler sized stone that was flat on top and smoothed out. Had been there a while, even before the house was build due to the paint on it. My step-dad seems convinced someone was buried underneath that rock, and stuff was buried around it as we found when we were digging up out pipe line. 
But, like typical southern family house, this house had large windows so you could take in the sunlight, like old window glass type of windows. That thick glass that people use to use to see if their diamonds were real. During the day it was alright, at night I always go the feeling something was following me from window to window as I made my way back to the main entrance hall to get upstairs. The final window was the large one that circle the door and stopped on both sides at your waist. And I sear when I walked up the steps it felt like someone was glaring at me through the window. 

There was also the fact that when out there at night, if you were alone, from the left side of the house you could hear a human growl clear as day and felt uneasy near that side. This was also true on the back porch as it felt like something didn't want you there. We also always caught a shadow person in our yard, when we would go to chase him, as my step-dad is a veteran with a gun and my late grandfather loved to clean his guns, we'd find there was no one. They'd hop over the fence but when we'd shine flashlights there, mind you there was on place to hid in these short grass fields, there was no one.

I'd also often hear my name being called when no one was there at the house or no one spoke. It was clear as day and sounded like my mom. But when I go to check, she'd have the TV on and didn't call for me at all. My mom, being the heavy Evangelical she was, denied our house being haunted due to the simple reason it was 'blessed', not formally thought, she proclaimed it was due to her and my grandfathers praying for it to be blessed. I don't think that's how ti works...
My step dad however, who says he can sense ghosts, claimed to be she was full of shit as he's heard growling and felt something evil in the yard. He never told me this when living there, it was only after we moved did he tell me his experiences. 

Since moving, I haven't once heard my name being called by no one, no creepy feeling when walking by windows at night, and no growling when I'm outside on the porch. Now all I'm scared of is stepping on a spider or splinter due to how old the porch wood is.

Most of these could be explained I guess, as kids always have an active imagination. But, it was too real for me. I've had other experiences besides these, but the ones I told you are the biggest. I hated the yard at that house, and wouldn't stay out there by myself, and hated sleeping in tents out there during family reunions. 
Not sure what it could be, than again I could just be crazy. Thoughts?

There are lots of very natural brain activities and mental illnesses/infections/ PTSD/ combined with indoctrination that can lead people to believe in the super natural. But trust me, while something can feel very real, there is no such thing.

When I was a kid, and didn't know any better. I had the "floating out of my body" "experience" and I saw my dead grandmother and dead father in my room. It felt very real, but it was not. I now know those were just combinations of stress, feelings of loss, and indoctrination of being exposed to bad claims. I also was living on a street full of bullies, so being picked on and beaten up also gave me PTSD. And it is also typical for adopted kids, which I was, to have severe insecurity an separation anxiety.

When I say mental illness, I do not mean the person who has it is evil or possessed. I simply mean most humans who go through emotional/physical stress, and or have brain injury/illness, do not understand how intense their false perceptions can be.

Trust me, if you are hearing voices when nobody is around, that is your brain doing it. I know, because I had those very intense false perceptions too. And yes, they felt very real, but were very false. It does not make you evil or "crazy". It merely means you need to learn how neurology/brain chemistry/ and indoctrination can lead you to bad gap answers.

Brian, so when applying occam's razor to this story of 2 different related people having a shared experience and finding out they had similar experiences without previously sharing details, they're both sharing a similar brain delusion is the simplest answer? Undeniably false and material is what I expected you to jump to, but can't you see any bias in this? I mean, cougars on the property would be better than that, really? Definitely tinged by your materialistic and naturalistic views.

I am sick of this bullshit, that because someone says nature doesn't need a super cognition as a gap answer, that somehow that means humans should behave like robots devoid of emotions.

Yes there is only nature, no magic needed. Just like you don't need Santa to explain where the presents under your tree really come from.

Otherwise Thor is equally a reasonable explanation for the cause of lightening. But somehow, I'd bet you rightfully reject such old mythology.

I am sorry if it frightens for someone to tell others there is no super cognition needed as a gap answer. It should not frighten humans to know this is all there is. We are still important in the time we are alive, and while our species exists. And we can still feel love and compassion while we are alive. 

Yes, I stand by my statement that our brains are very powerful, and under certain conditions can cause very intense AND false perceptions.

It is rather difficult to tell from your account if this is an actual demon.  Other possible causes include, but are not limited to:

-Leprechauns

-Mothman

-Sentient gargoyles

-Sundry cryptids

-Foraging orcs

-Werewolves

In the event that is does turn out to be a demon, you should contact your local Ladies' Sewing Circle And Exorcism Guild at the earliest opportunity.

I think I know what happened. The entity that you sensed was trapped at your former home and wanted to leave desperately. It couldn't leave without a host body. You felt creepy because you subconsciously knew that it wanted to use your body as its host. Eventually, you lost the battle with it, and became one with it. That's why you left. You think that you left for reasons of your own, but really the entity just wanted to leave its prison. You don't sense it anymore, because it is a part of you. You are possessed. Possessed people never think that they are possessed. But they always recall creepy feelings about the place where their possession occurred.

Yup because it's based on something we know is real

Biased toward things that happen and we know exist

Uh, boy.

Jade, listen to Brian. He's often a condescending pain in the ass with no empathy at all but he's spot-on here. He's done his research.

Do your own research. There's no substitute for that. When you do it yourself, things will click in a way they never would taking someone else's word for it.

Yes, the human brain will manufacture shit under the right circumstances. It is very well documented. Do the research yourself and learn. Our brains are amazing but they are also flawed in amazing ways.

There is no demon or otherwise pain in the ass on your land.
Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the former.
