Skinwalkers… in the Uintah basin incidents of these skinwalkers have been happening. In Native American folklore, it is a very serious topic because these skinwalkers are harmful witches that can transform into other bodies like wolves or birds. Skinwalkers know when you talk about them and can actually read minds. This legend tells that they read minds so that they can find out what you’re afraid of and then they use your fears against you.
Deeply disturbing things happened on this skinwalker ranch (also know as Sherman Ranch), located near the Navajo reservation in Southeastern Utah. Examples of some of the disturbing incidents that are happening are, inanimate objects showing up at random places or like how the mom went to town for groceries, put the groceries away only for her to find all the groceries back in the bags when she turned her back. Disembodied voices being heard that is a language not quite understood. It was like a series of mind games… skinwalkers can read minds. 👽 Check out this encounter below, it gave me goosebumps reading it;
“I live close to the reservation just outside of Mesa, Arizona. I have a couple of Native friends who I just recently went camping with around 20 miles outside the valley to a place they call Three Poles. This place is considered holy land in their eyes and is close to a river. There are numerous stories I know about this place, such as the flute player you can hear at night or the boulder-sized splashes you hear in the river. But the most notable are the stories of the skinwalkers.
We arrived at the camping site around 9 p.m. It was already dark, so we started to unpack and made a fire. Once that was done, my Native buddies put up the barriers and puffed the smoke of tobacco upon us as a personal barrier. They told me never to go anywhere alone and that around 3 a.m. is when the spirits are the most active. Around 2 a.m. the beating of a drum became very clear; this is a sign of the skinwalker, they told me. At around 3 a.m., the smell of wet dog became apparent. This is the sign of either two things: Hoofy, an extremely evil spirit; or the skinwalkers.
The fire grew small and we could see the shadows of animals. We all decided to move to another site in the morning. As first light dawned, we packed. I sat in the back of his truck to hold down the stuff. As we left, I saw a rottweiler walking on its hind legs straight to the middle of our camp. It was easily 5 feet tall and had bright orange eyes. I freaked out and screamed as it was running at us, still standing up. It disappeared into a bush after we turned the corner.
Later on, at our other camp, an old man with his face covered up by hair visited us and acted very strangely. We ran out of drinks, so a friend and I decided to head out on foot (no car; a friend had to take it home). We saw a car. As it approached, it slowed down to a halt and the same man asked if we wanted a ride. We said no because by this time my friends had told me the man was a skinwalker. He grabbed my arm and pulled me by his car and looked straight at me. As my friend ran up to grab me, the man took off in his car.
Once we got back, I relaxed. It was around dawn when just behind me the man appeared about 10 feet away and asked if I could help him with something back at his camp. As he did, two trucks came around the corner to head further into the grounds. He watched them as they passed and then all of a sudden he bolted after them. I was astonished seeing this 60-year-old man chasing down a car. My native friends put up a salt barrier. I heard sounds all night but never saw anything after that. – Levi D. “(paranormal.about.com)
This weird phenomenon has caused journalists, scientists and thrill seekers to investigate. It is so eerie that I am tempted to go see for myself. Knowing the type of thrill seeker I am, I also know my fear of darkness, and poltergeist type creatures would mostly cause me a heart attack. Especially if the skinwalkers can truly read minds and use my fear against me. Skinwalkers apparently just like to mess with people’s heads to gain a sort of power/control over their victim.
I do know that that I’m pretty creeped out but curious all the same.
