I am really happy that you
liked the first part of our incredible story so here it continues (sorry that it is a little bit long, but worth reading I think):
So it was saturday evening and
we were still bored, we had really nothing to do there. We knew some of the
student there but they had some tasks to do since it was their teambuilding so
they all were busy. We did hang out with some of the teachers for some time and
it was kind of fun because they knew a little bit English so we were finally able
to talk to someone more than just a stupid small talk.
The evening program was like
on every other school trip, watching movies, playing some “get to know each
other” games and so on. It was funny watching it. And here comes the weird part
of the evening. First of all I have to say that Indonesia is a very mystical
and spiritual country and most of the population believes in another world, the
world of the spirits or ghosts, which is a part of our world but we just don’t see
them or interact with them. Some people say that they are able to see the
spirits or communicate with them. And sometimes some people get possessed by
these ghosts. I personally believe that there is something paranormal going on
but I don’t know what and why.
So we are sitting downstairs watching
a movie and suddenly we hear screams from upstairs. Weird screams. First we don’t
really pay attention to them, because we thought that it is just the freshmen
acting like little kids but then some people rush upstairs and also some of the
teachers so we know something is not right. After few minutes, while the
screams still continue, I decide to go check it out. Some people on the stairs
tell me that one girl got possessed by a ghost and they don’t pay much attention
So I came upstairs into the
room where this girl was and she was lying on her back, few people were holding
her arms and legs and massaging the fingers. One guy was sitting on her chest
holding her hair saying something in Indonesian and then spitting water into
her face. It was really intense thing to watch. I didn’t know at all what is
happening. She was still screaming and fighting with the people holding her.
After few minutes she “woke up” from this thing. She looked very disoriented
and didn’t know what happened at all. But she didn’t remember a thing from the
whole afternoon and evening.
I literally wasn’t breathing
and had a head full of questions. So I went to talk to some of the people who
were holding her while the guy on her chest was trying to get the spirit out of
her. They told me that she got possessed by this spirit during the afternoon,
because they saw that she was acting weird. And in the evening they were sure.
The thing is that here the people believe that there are two types of ghosts,
good ones and bad ones. The good ones just try to communicate and the bad ones
will probably try to hurt someone.
The one that got into this
girl was a good one they told me. It just wanted to communicate. I don’t know
exactly how and when is it possible for the spirit to get into you, but since
we are here in Indonesia I eye witnessed around 5 or 6 ghost possessions. It
was very weird every time and until now I don’t know what to think about it. If
it is really real or what is it. Other thing that when you get possessed you don’t
remember anything after that moment until the spirit leaves your body. I heard
stories of people who are possessed for several years and nobody is able to get
the spirit out of them. When we were in Bali I was talking to a lot of young
Indonesian people who had similar experiences or some of them are able to see
or communicate with them. Hindu people believe in this spiritual world even
more then Islamic people. We even have one American girl here in Padang Panjang
with us and she says that she is also able to see or communicate with the
spirits and she has a lot of experience with them from what was she saying. And
I kinda believe her.
So after this whole ghost possession
thing we didn’t really sleep the next night since we were in the middle of
forest on the top of a hill heh. We were happy that we go back to civilization
the next day. It’s up to you if you believe me or not, but this story really
happened. It was few months ago but I still have the whole situation it that
room alive in front of my eyes. If someone has a question feel free to ask
anything. I don’t even mind if you write that it is bullshit in the comments.
And if someone wants I can write a whole another post about these things here
