My first thought is to please don't think there is anything demonic at the house. Please understand that just because you felt heaviness, chest pains, or an angry presence does not mean there is anything truly negative in the home. As a sensitive, you may have been picking up on how a spirit passed or on some of their feelings. It may also have been a conflict of your personal energy to that of the spirits'. Also, with the children feeling pushed, this may be a spirit trying to gain their attention. Spirits need energy to create the activity to get our attention, not having the physical body to do so. They may not realize the amount of energy they are using and what they perceive as a tap on the shoulder feels like a shove to us. Children are naturally sensitive to spirits... so talking about the situation honestly and as positively as possible will go a long way in making them feel more secure.
It would be my recommendation to find a professional paranormal group to assist you and your friend... sometimes being sensitive isn't going to help with the situation at hand, especially if it is for a friend, someone you have emotional ties with.
If the home is in our jurisdiction, SJGR would be happy to help. All of our services are free of charge. We would need to also hear from your friend and be given her permission before we would be able to help her and her family.
Please contact me (or have your friend contact me) at [email protected]
so I can discuss how to get the process started.
If either of you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
