Real Ghost Stories

Maybe A Poltergeist

 

Sometimes I wonder if it's my imagination, or if it's real. I've never had an experience where I know it's imagination. My parents don't believe me. I've been wondering if my house is haunted (even though this isn't the most exciting story, it means what might be paranormal).

First of all, one night I was lying in my bed (all of my furniture was antique). I had watched some scary show, which I forget what I was watching, exactly. I couldn't sleep, and it was really late at night. I was about eight then, so 'late' was around eleven for me. But anyways, out of nowhere, a big, super-deep voice from one side of my bed, said "come,". I lied face down on my pillow, keeping myself from maybe seeing something extremely scary. I wanted to scream for my parents, but I was trying to predict what the 'thing' would do to me if I did. I didn't want to take any chances.

After a while, there was nothing but silence, so I decided it was safe to roll onto my other side. 'It's just my imagination',I thought repeatedly. Even though my eyes were shut tight, I still saw what I thought were black and white flashes of light, like white sunshine shining through my eyelids. I regret keeping my eyes closed, despite my fear, wondering what I would have seen. At that exact same time, I heard what sounded like the same voice, speaking either a different language, and it sounded like he was saying, "Mmm, ahhh...," like he just ate something really delicious, or he was sitting in a hot tub after being in snow.

I was at the point of screaming by now, but when it was all over, I reached to turn on my lamp, snuck out, and got my parents. Of course, my mother said it was just my imagination! To this day, I wonder if that was a ghost, but it never came again.

Secondly, sometimes I'll hear noises, not at night, but during the day. Sometimes I'll enter a room, and I'll hear a little bit of shuffling, like while I was gone somebody was snooping around in my stuff. It couldn't be air, because at these times, my fan was not on. Nobody was upstairs with me, and nobody was making noise downstairs. The most shocking experience of this was one day when I was up in my room, doing homework with my new bedroom suit.

I was really concentrating on my math homework, and might I add that at that time I remember being home alone, just me and my dog. When it was least expected, I heard unexplainable noises on the shelves above my desk. I stood up on my chair, but nothing was moved or changed. My books, my bank, my purse, my pictures, all remained unchanged. I tried to remake the noises, shuffling everything, tapping my fingers, anything that I could think of that was noisy. Nothing sounded the same. That experience just made me scratch my head. So I'm trying to come to a conclusion- is my house haunted? Is my room haunted? Or am I just losing my mind?

105Tazrael~ Your language and demeanor on this site is completely inappropriate, if you can't accept that people have other views than yourself, and that perhaps your view on something is not the same as what the majority feels to be true, then I suggest you grow up a little bit before you reply on this site again.

As for everyone being "know it alls" I am a female not a male, but for some reason you "knew" I was male, guess you can't know everything... Your pettiness bores me...

ishkabibble: Hmm I agree with a lot of comments on here, the Poltergeist theory which redphx slightly touched on may seem quite plausible, especially if your a teen and all! This could also be a past loved one getting your attention in a subtle non scary/threatning way.
You mentioned at the start of your story that you had been watching a scary show, this itself has left you in a heightened state of emotion your imagination is working overtime and any sound would have you on edge, so just something to think about.

These events are not demonic but there are a couple of posters on this site that are possesed and have there own demons I think!lol.

Thanks for sharing.

Um. I think that it's very nice that you want it to be God that spoke to you. I also think it's very nice that your friend feels that in touch with God to be able to have a conversation with Him. I'm not saying that it can't happen but I personally feel that beings like to play on what we believe to be true. And ghosts lie, so do angels but that is for another time. Ghosts want us to trust them to an extent so they can get away with what they want, others don't like us and just want to cause trouble.

My advice would be is to find evidance of a ghost. And know that God doesn't really intervene with us because he wants us to make good decisions ourselves and love Him from our heart not because he made us love Him. I don't think it was God. I am not a religous person at all. I am in fact a witch but I know about God because He is the white light. I would focus this on being some noises first, try to find a ghost with EVPs (those are so fun!) take a digital camera see if you can capture some orbs. And if it talks to you and says its God don't believe it because it's not.

Good Luck to you. Let us know what you find!

I know this doesn't exactly go with the category, but it could be GOD. I know someone who was spoken to by God- it was a deep voice, like what I heard, but it said, "Bring down the fire," and "Read more,". I'm not really counting on it, but it's a possibility...

bacchaegrl,
Thanks for the compliment, but I honestly can't think of another way to describe it.
I can't believe how much advice you guys are giving me! I might do a little EVP session to see if I can find evidence of a spirit. I highly doubt it's a bad entity because I've heard about them-they would probably do a lot more than just make noise. Don't any of you think it would have touched me by now, or done something else? Maybe it was passing through, because I haven't gotten ANY known activity yet for quite a while. I doubt it's a demon, because I would have gotten more aggressive activity- whatever this is, so far it's a pretty good spirit... So far...

Darkfantum,

I am not offended, but if there were mice, I think I would have heard them elsewhere in my house, not JUST in my bedroom.

Do you think it could have been your spirit guide? The word "come" stands out to me, this can be identified as something a guide may say to you. To show you something. The white light, and the feeling you maybe should have looked, and the "good feeling" it expressed to you, sounds like a guide. You were afraid, your spirit guide understood you weren't ready. I would not be afraid.

105Tazrael: What you described sounds like a critter. I think that movie was made in the 80's. Critters. They were kind of cute. When I was 3 I had a cardboard cut out of a critter that we brought down from the attic on halloween. What fond memories of critters. They are cute little things.

Also not everything is a demon. I think demons have a bad reputation and probably about 1/1000 hauntings is due to any type of demonic activity. They are rare and don't really have the time to play with humans. We are no fun compared to the energy they can feed on from other planes of existance.

It is not a demon at all. It could be a poltergeist. I don't believe those are intelligent hauntings but they are associated with the energy around kids (mostly girls) in their teens. I could be wrong and it could in fact be a ghost but it doesn't sound mean or anything just trying to get your attention. I would do an EVP in your room and see what you get.

105Tazrael: You can submit your story on the submissions page, rather than on someone else's thread if it's that important to you to share it... Please be cautioned that poor grammar and form aren't accepted and will be discarded immediately, so do use spell check and use proper punctuation and capitalization...

I'm sure when DragonStorm gets the urge to post HER experiences, that's the course of action SHE'LL take...

Please don't "call people out"...Obviously, most of us have had experiences, or we wouldn't be here... There are no such things as experts where the paranormal is concerned...

Ugh, shuffling and sounds does not a demon make. Sounds like your regular, run of the mill paranormal activity. Don't listen to those demon people. They are blowing things way out of proportion. The reason I want to comment is this, "or he was sitting in a hot tub after being in snow." That description made me smile. Good writing there! You have a good little paranormal story here, and I'm sorry it has led to some controversy.

Actually DragonStorm's advice was rather sound, I think. 105Tazrael, you sound like a troll with poor grammar. Must be all that jungle air getting to your brain.

105Tazrael ~ I do believe I have touched a nerve over there. You still have not answered one single question I have asked of you, you seem to only want to answer questions with questions and try to provoke some schoolyard style fight, and I am simply not interested in anything of the sort.

My opinions are simply that, my opinions and you have every right to not agree with those, just as I have with yours.

You really don't seem to be making much sense in your replies, and the advice and opinions given on this site is again, simply that, advice and opinions.

I think you need to calm down a bit and actually think about what you are typing before you post your replies, and again that is simply my own opinion.

Hey there! You know what, a medium told me once that when you watch or read things about the paranormal, you tend to "open" yourself up to the paranormal. This isn't a bad thing. Have you ever been more alert than usual to the slightest sound or smallest shadow after watching/reading something paranormal? That's your ESP kicking into over drive! And this hypersensitive state of awareness does attract spirits, because they know you will be able to sense them.

The fact that this entity is in your room, upstairs tells me its attracted to YOU and not just passing through. I do not believe its a demon. It seems to be "gentle" except for the noises. But they will make ANY noise to draw your attention. I had a burping spirit once!

When this entity becomes aggresive and it harms you, then its a "bad entity". For now I don't think its dangerous. Put down rules that it mush obey, like, not to scare you or not to touch you etc etc. I have one rule in my house and my aura: I will listen to you, feel you, allow you to touch me in a non-harmful way, BUT I do not want to see you! That will scare me.

Good luck

105Tazrael ~ That post you have put up in NO WAY answers any of the questions I had for you and as Jav said you can post up your own stories on this site and get your own source of feedback from it without interrupting somebody elses story.

And you can remember ALL of that at the tender age of 3? You are either some kind of child genius or some kind of expert in porky pies methinks!

If you have a personal story to tell, please submit it to the site as a story and not as a comment on another story. For one thing, more people will get a chance to read it and get to know you better.

105Tazrael~ From what parts of this story are you basing your advice on? I'm awfully confused as to how you could come up with such an elaborate demonic based advice post to this story, for something that clearly does not appear to be demonic, and all without asking any further questions to back up these theories of yours? 😕

I simply do not understand, could you please explain how you arrived to your conclusions for this particular story please?

I agree that this does not sound harmful in any way and just wants to be acknowledged 😊 Maybe try saying hello and being nice back when something makes a noise next time?

Well, for now it sounds like just stuff being moved around, and some voices, and a light show. So far, no harm. Good! As this ever happened before? Has something recently to have triggered this? It sounds like a spirit just making noises. Just watch, observe, and see what transpires. If it is just what it going on, then it's a spirit maybe wanting some attention. All you can do is just watch. If anything else happens, then go from there. Good luck.

It doesn't have to be a demon to move things or make noises. It could be grandma, or grand pa or some one from your parents childhood come to watch over you. They just wanted to let you know they are there. I have heard and seen ghosts since I was little. Some spirits just linger around the homes they lived in. If it is not tugging at you, or beeing harmful just let it alone. You never know it might be ther to help you out in some way.
