The one and only time I would ever step foot in the underground prison at Newgate was quite a few years ago. Pure evil lives there. I am a sensitive, however what I physically experienced I never wish to again , so I have never returned. While exploring the different cavern like areas I began to feel sick to my stomach as well as getting a rush of anxiety, this was towards the left side of the underground tunnel. I had my granddaughter with me, I grabbed her hand and headed towards the stairs leading up, every step of the way to reach the stairs it took all my strength to continue. It was as if the law of gravity was pulling me back, and all of my energy was being drained. We finally made it to the top of the stairs and outside, I was so fatigued I had to sit , catch my breath , there are horrid entities that reside in those caverns, nothing to play with.Posted 2/11/20
