The Sitting Ghost

My mother used to live in an apartment next to a cemetery while she was attending the University of Hawaii at Manoa. One night she woke up for no reason and rolled over in bed. The air in her room was super muggy and thick. Something just didn't seem right. When she looked, a sudden depression was made in the bed that looked like someone came and sat down on the bed next to her. A little spooked, but too groggy to care she rolled over and went back to sleep.

A short time later she awoke struggling for breath, when whatever it was that was sitting down next to her rolled onto her. It was as thought someone was sitting on her chest, preventing her from breathing. It felt like she was under a "ton of bricks." She fought back, trying to move whatever was on her chest, but with no success. She finally managed to gasp for some air and with it said, "In the name of Jesus Christ, I rebuke you!"

Suddenly, the weight lifted and the presence left her room. The air became crisp and cool. The presence never returned.

I can relate to this. I moved to Kauai Hawaii and one night I decided to sleep on our living room couch, I felt somthing sit on me and I couldn’t move! I was laying on my side but I managed to turn my head and could see a water image of a big lady sitting on me. I was paralyzed and couldn’t say Jesus and then I started praying in my mind and final! I shouted in the name of Jesus! The image left immediately. After that I said the Our Father Prayer. I was told that it was a sitting spirit. It’s been 9 years and I never seen it again.
