Second part of the "Weekend of our dreams"


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 to that.

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 in Indonesia.

Peace

  1. I think that it's bullshit, since Indonesia is a pretty spiritual country they would have a lot of myths. Which would then be told from generation to generation and would be accepted as part of life.

    Those "beliefs" are just that, "beliefs" and they are ingrained in the person's mind and they'll think that it's true and the body involuntarily acts upon it. Same as if you were taunted for all you life and labelled as a weakling, you'd give in to that notion of being weak even though you're stronger or just as strong as them.

    Now I'm not a psychology buff but that's just how I see it. I was born in the Philippines and always heard crap like that and never had a second though (save for some).

    1. I understand. I also think that a lot of those things people told me here, about ghost, energy and these spiritual things, are just myths traded from one generation to another. But on the other hand I come from Slovakia and we dont have anything like this there :D And I was always curious about stuff like this because I didnt know much about it. And now I have it here almost everyday. I have to say that I am still not really convinced that it was a ghost possesion, but until now it makes the most sense for me. Maybe sometime I will find out that this whole spiritual thing is bullshit :)

  7. I do believe there is something paranormal, but have yet to experience something myself. This whole experience sounds brutal, like something out of the exorcist.

    1. It was really mindblowing :D But it wasnt a bad experience in my opinion, I was scared after that but nothing bad happened. It was just like: What the hell did I just see? :D

  10. I personally don't believe in ghostly possession and stuff like that, but what do I know? Personal experience is the only thing to evaluate stuff like that. And many people have had those experiences, so how unreal can it be?
