Rectory Nightmares

Terrie M ScottBy Terrie Scott, September 16, 2012: I meant to write this a few days ago, but it's been a crazy week with more personal drama, my birthday and a few groups coming in. Feel like I've spent the entire time rushing from one place to another.

Wednesday night I had a terrible nightmare. I haven't had a nightmare since I was a kid. Sure, I have bad dreams now and then, but this was a full blown "Freddie Krueger" type nightmare. Night Terror.

I was awoken from my sleep and my body was lifted out my bed and slammed into the ceiling above me. I saw nothing, only felt some terrible presence. My dogs were barking wildly. When I was finally released, I fell back down onto the bed and immediately stood up, rushing for the door. Before I could run out of the room, the door slammed shut violently in front of me and the desk slid across the floor, blocking the door altogether. I was then violently thrown back against the wall, knocking the wind out of me.

I don't remember much else, but I woke up with a killer migraine. And, felt ill at ease the remainder of the day. I also didn't feel well physically. I was meeting my parents that evening for a birthday dinner, and it was all I could do to sit through it. I was in a great deal of pain.

The next evening, Lorraine's group came in. I didn't like the vibe of the Rectory that night, so I opted to sit in the car. I can take a hint. However, Tim sent me a text and said that as the entire group was gathered in the library, they all heard that infamous "gobble you up" growl.

Crap. I had to go inside and hear this. Everyone heard it, clear as day. That growl fascinates me and yet terrifies me too. It's not a dog. Not unless it's a 10 ft tall dog... Since I have often heard it above my head. I stayed with the group for the rest of the tour and a couple of their members began to feel sick to their stomachs. I believe one girl was actually sick.

The Rectory was in a bad mood that evening, apparently, and was already messing with people. I made sure everyone knew that they needed to be cautious. Don't take anything back with you and stick together as much as possible.

I had legal stuff to deal with on Friday and that was the nature of my post about the lady I spoke with in my lawyer's office. We had Jenna's group coming in that night and I was still feeling weird. I had a nightmare Thursday night too and just wasn't feeling like myself.

Jenna and her group brought some goodies for the Rectory too, paper products, kitty food. Thanks, guys! Other groups have done this too here recently and we can't thank you all enough for helping us take care of the Rectory AND all the homeless kitties.

Let me jump back a few days... Tuesday night, we had our meeting at the Rectory with Sister Ellein from the Catholic Telegraph. They are doing an article on the Rectory, even about its hauntings. We had a wonderful meeting with her and she knows she has more than a cutesie ghost story to write about. And, I made a new friend in animal rescue. She is helping me with the cat situation and we're going to try and help control the pet population there. I had already asked Tim to help me make some winter shelters for the cats. Anyway, she was a very nice lady and the article should come out around Halloween.

We're still waiting to hear back from the two groups this week, as far as evidence goes. Always interesting to learn what they captured.

Saturday was my birthday, so I got as far off the grid as I could. But, Sunday (today) we had a couple of really nice guys from England coming in to investigate the Rectory. Long way from home, but it was nice talking with them. We just left them a little while ago. Kevin from ARC Paranormal and Bob Mackey's is there with them, so we know they're in good hands.

The only other thing I have noticed recently is my thoughts have been darker. It's hard to explain. Tim talked about it a great deal to me, as he is having his own issues lately. But, it's almost like I am constantly fighting something that wants control over me. It's very weird and disturbing to me. I don't want to go into a lot of detail, but the migraines I have been getting at my home and at the Rectory are becoming unbearable. I went years without migraines and now, every single day, every morning I wake up with one, and as soon as I step in the Rectory it intensifies.

I have made the comment that I don't feel like we own the Rectory. I think the Rectory owns us right now. It is really trying to mess with us. And, the more I fight, and I will always fight it, the more it tries to gain control over us. And, still the nightmares continue...
