Hello It’s Dan from Williamsburg, VA.  This isn't exactly a story but rather, a warning.

In the paranormal world, Voodoo and other dark arts are frequently known for bringing spirits up and things like that. 

I'm going to be blatantly honest and say that Voodoo almost ruined my life. I participated in a Voodoo ritual in New Orleans, Louisiana in 2014, and it changed my life and the lives of my group members.

During the ritual, the priestess summoned several spirits and some of them were just normal spirits that were using the circle to travel, and they made themselves known and then left. 

Things took a very horrific turn when the priestess invited in a spirit that was, according to her, very evil. This spirit frightened the priestess so much that she immediately closed the ritual and left without speaking to us.

We were left there with no knowledge of what we were dealing with and no way to get help if we needed it. We did a short Spirit Box session, where we captured some of the most terrifying voices we had ever heard.

We eventually decided to stop the investigation and leave. Unfortunately, the malevolent energy had already attached itself to us, and we had no idea.

That night, the three of us had horrifying nightmares that I can't even describe. We ended up not sleeping the rest of the night.

For several weeks after the ritual, I was plagued by grotesque and terrifying nightmares in which demonic creatures would chase me, attack me, and attack the people I care about.

These nightmares occurred on a nightly basis for several weeks, and I was on the verge of losing my mind.

In addition to the nightmares, I would frequently see shadow figures with red eyes in nearly every part of my house. I would hear evil voices at all hours of the day. I would see hideous faces on windows, mirrors, screens, walls, everywhere.

I reached a point where I didn't know what to do anymore and eventually had to call a priest to help me. 

I told the priest everything that had happened including the ritual and he told me that I had several evil spirits attached to me that had been summoned during the Voodoo ritual and that they wanted to take control of my fellow ghost hunters and myself.

He had my other two partners meet us at a small chapel to perform a cleansing.

The cleansing helped, but it was a very scary experience.

After the cleansing, life was somewhat better but I still occasionally had a nightmare that would scare me so bad that I wouldn't sleep for days. After a few weeks, life was back to normal but I still carry the memories with me.

I hope this serves as a warning to anyone who practices voodoo or any form of dark magic. 

Thanks for your time and I will be writing in again soon.
