The Second Instance of a First
Last week, I spoke about firsts in my paranormal career and how they are few and far between. Well lo and behold, I have had another. I was performing a cleansing or spirit rescue and had almost finished the house. When I got to the last room, I felt a heaviness or uneasiness coming from the closet. I went over to start my procedure and actually got grabbed by the arm. I have been grabbed before, so this was not unusual. What was disturbing was that I got scratched. For the first time, I had a physical injury from an entity (albeit rather minor). Undaunted, I continued my quest to cleanse this home, and put the fears of the homeowner to rest.
I succeeded in the end. I shall chalk this up to a learning experience and revel in the knowledge that no matter how long you do something, you can always learn something new.
