Well That Was Weird

 

I think it right to share this because these are my first 3 experiences with the paranormal. Now, being only a child when I had my first 3 experiences I somehow remember them very well.

The first:

It was the middle of the night and I had woken up after which I sat up and saw a figure standing on the landing facing the direction of my sisters bedroom. This figure was pure white and appeared more solid than see through and because of which makes me go, well that was weird whenever I remember it.

The second:

This happened on a cloudy morning at 7 am and again I'd just woken up and looked towards the window and saw it was cloudy, I turned back looked my alarm clock and saw it was 7 am. I had some toy cars on the floor that I had been playing with the day before and that's when I noticed two of them move ever so slightly, but it's what then appeared that I'll never forget.

I saw the outline of a little boy on the floor as if he was playing with my toy cars without them moving after the two that ever so slightly did.

The third:

This experience happened when I was at primary school and it still makes wonder what it was.

I was at school and I was told by my mate that there was a toilet cubicle door just opening and then shutting in the toilets and well being a child, I just had to check it out. As soon as I opened the toilet door I could hear it and that's when I checked that no one was in the toilets. It was your typical male toilets but there was only two cubicles and beside them the urinals. The door that was slamming was on the cubicle next to the urinals and I was stood in front of it, just watching and the funny thing was that when I checked the toilets there was no one in or around them.

(at) Scarlettsnow, ahhh, I think I get what you're saying, especially about open-mindedness... There are times (ok, maybe a fair amt of times) when I myself have a hard time with not being skeptical of different experiences that I read, (we all have our own personal demons) but I have started to learn that if I am "on the fence", asking questions that help to clarify the situation often clears up any doubts I had, and let's the poster give additional details they missed in the story, so that the advice given can more closely fit the circumstances. You give a good reminder, however, that most posters should be "innocent until proven guilty" 😉
For us skeptics out there, please also try to be patient in letting us ask our questions & give opinions if something doesn't sit right... I know, it's like a disease- we can't help ourselves sometimes, however we "detectives" of the community can uncover valuable information for everyone... In my experience, the experienced members (even skeptics) on this site really try hard to be very respectful. (Unless someone is obviously trying to pull a fast one, of course!) Please don't fault the skeptics who still have a passion for the unexplained! 😁. I promise to remember it's "innocent until proven guilty", if you promise to be understanding of sometimes incessant questions on details, haha... Can we come to a truce? 😁 (offers hand)...

Scarlette,
I'm voting some sort of mixup then, because SDS is a love, really. I've never known him not to listen to reason at least. And, he is always quick to apologize if he even thinks he's offended.
I believe what he meant is if 4 or younger it's possible that these (first 2) events were dreams or dream remnants (you're awake but the dream plays for a few seconds), just suggesting the possibility. Just like with the toilet door- maybe this or that caused it. Any door repeatedly opening and slamming shut might illicit from ME a "Well that's weird and I'm so outta here," reaction at the minimal, especially in grade school. I do agree with you though, everyone reacts differently to any given situation. (Although I don't think the vaccume theory would work here, simply because it would mean someone was opening and closing another door/window repeatedly too).
Now ain'tcha happy we done had this conversation? 😉 😆

[at] Valkricry- LOL. I might have him mixed up. It's possible that I mistook him for someone else, since I only started following this today. Oh, and some of my fellow americans' grammar baffles me as well, sometimes. I speak casually, and use words like goin' to and ain't, but I'm usually doing that stuff on purpose. At least I use punctuation when I write, though! 😆 Some of the people on here don't even use that when they post! 😊

[at] wishfullnull, there might not be anything wrong with debunking it sometimes, but if you're debunking it for what comes across to me as an illogical or even silly reason, I feel it's a little narrow-minded. It's hard to tell from these stories where they're telling the truth, and where an author might be making things up for attention, but, to me, if it's not glaringly obvious that it's wrong, it's probably true. And all I really meant is that I don't get why his age matters. Even if he was four, that doesn't make his story untrue. The truth is the truth, regardless of his age when it happened to him. Do you understand me now?

Are you sure you don't have SDS mixed up with someone else? Or that you perhaps misread/understood what he was talking about? I've been reading his posts for quite some time now, and they are usually quite logical. I know once in a while his wording can be a bit odd to the American eye, but considering that it is not his native language, he does real well. Heck, the wording of some of my countrymen leaves me baffled at times! 😆

Dear Scarlettsnowe,
I truly don't mean to sound confrontational with this question, I am genuinely curious as to your thoughts, what do you see as being wrong about asking for more clarification on details of a story, (such as Valkricry did) or taking a turn at trying to debunk it (such as sds did)? I ask this, because in my view, that is what the comments section is for... To offer feedback, possible solutions, opinions, and the like? As readers, do you not see it as our right to read stories and offer up our ideas regarding them? I found their feedback to be very polite...I'm not sure why you seem to think this author was wrongfully treated? Again, I am not attacking your view or anything, I just wanted to hear your thoughts...thanks

I apologize, because I should've made this clearer, but I was mostly talking to sds. They are always trying to debunk everyone, (they said so in their own words on another post), and they don't always make sense.

scarlettsnowe,
Just where in my post do you see me discrediting his account? Or even trying to? Remarking that I found something amazing (remembering the time) is neither a dig nor a doubt. It simply means I'm impressed. Wondering about age difference between incidents is no sin, and even logical.

I would have to say, respectfully, that I do not understand how it matters what age he was. Even if he was 2 or 3, that doesn't debunk his story. Furthermore, if he could tell time on an alarm clock he was probably at least six, unless the alarm clock was digital. How many four-year-old children tell time? Also, just because it was 7 a.m. Does not mean he was supposed to be in school. Remember, most people in the US wake up early on weekdays and days they have to go to work or school, and later on weekends and days they don't have to go to work or school. Therefore, since he didn't mention the day of the week or the time of year it is perfectly possible for him to be 10, even, and not have to wake up until past 7 a.m. Even if he were four, it is still a logical fallacy to say that he was just dreaming or had an over active imagination just because of his age. Four year-old children may be playful and imaginative, but they often know what they see. And last but not least, many people believe that kids are actually more sensitive to the paranormal or the spirit-world. I personally would not usually discount a child's paranormal experiences unless I had a good enough reason. I'm sorry, but you don't have any reason to discredit him.

Ghostly94, could you be a dear and narrow down at what age you were at the first two experiences? I ask because we're from multiple countries here. For, myself (the States) they would have happened about the age of 4 or younger, because our 'primary' schooling starts at age 5 - I find it amazing that you can't just remember the time of the boy playing with your cars but that you could even tell time at that age 😊. Or were you simply trying to tell us that these two incidents happened at home and the third at school? But playing with cars - heck my son did that up until he was about 9 or 10. So, you see why I'm confused as to what you mean 'as a child'.
I can understand you not being frightened by the first two. No 'bad' vibe, and nothing 'scary' going on. Children have a way of simply 'accepting' things that would weird out an adult. But the toilet door swinging open and closed repeatedly? C'mon, you had to think more that 'Well, that was weird".

I don't feel that everyone that experiences events like this feel very strongly about them. That seems a little too simple to me, to expect all entities to be positive or negative, not neutral, and all people to react in exactly the same way to similar events. I find nothing weird in his neutral reaction, as I have had one similar experience. It neither excited fear nor anger in me. Just made me wonder what happened on that road...

[at] sds, I don't understand how you came up with the age of four. Please explain further, because my nephew, Avery, is 9 and he plays with toys and toy cars.? That means that you didn't totally debunk the first story. Even if he was four, not three, five, six, seven, eight, nine, or ten, (all of these ages play with toys and toy cars, and he technically could have been 11 or even 12), nothing in that story suggests that it was necessarily his imagination. No offense intended, but aren't you being a bit narrow-minded?

Hi ghostly94, as far as the first two encounters are concerned, I would like to ask you, when those things happened, what was your age? You said that you had play toys, cars, means were you at the age of 4. I feel that it could have been due to either the vivid imagination or a fallout of a dream you might have had.

With regard to the third one, I wish to respectfully inform you that the opening and closing of the door by itself could be due to some other reason than the paranormal. I want to ask was there any other door just opposite to the toilet door, because the opening and closing of the opposite door also could be one of the causes for the door situated on the opposite side to move. But, the details are quite limited to know exactly what had happened.

I find it quite difficult to term the experiences as paranormal and I feel that there could be reasons other than paranormal.

Regards and respects to you.

SDS

This is a very cool story. I really like the one about the little boy playing with the toys. I'm glad it wasn't that scary of an experience for you. Seems like good spirits.

Not sure why the toilet doors were moving, but I am thinking what you saw after you woke up in the first two accounts were memories from your dreams. 😐 Maybe... Mahalo for your sharing your experiences - 4d

Hi Ghostly94, thank you for responding... It is still kind of confusing to me that you witnessed these events, but your recounting of what happened seems so strangely detached - maybe you are young and unable to express this very well, but there is no emotion, and there is no "after" reaction listed... You asked your mom after you saw the 1st figure, but did it not frighten you? Did you Yell for your parents? Didn't you think it could have been an intruder? Were you afraid to see it again? Have you seen these ghosts around your house since? Has anyone else experienced this other than yourself? Does you house have a long history? These are all things I would expect to see, in a story which these things were seen... Normally people question what they have seen, they are confused about if what they saw was real or not, and there are some strong emotions involved. Do you know what I mean? Perhaps this is just your style, or you are a very unemotional person... It was just my gut reaction to this story that your reactions seem kind of odd, that's all.

At Demonsheikh, hi:) I understand what you mean, but this just doesn't strike me as bravery...bravery, to me anyway, is acting boldly in spite of being afraid. If your heart felt like it was going to explode, but you confronted the entity anyway, That is bravery! You are not a coward 😊 Your reaction would be much more natural-sounding to me, than an emotionless run-down of events, as described... Perhaps I am just on the fence because of the lack of detail... This one leaves me confused. I could always be wrong.

Bravery I think. When I had experienced a headless man. My heart was like it was going to explode. Maybe I am a coward.

I wasn't that scared because I spoke about it and she said they were ghosts and they weren't going to hurt me.
Also thanks for your comment and have a lovely day 😊

As a child you had 3 experiences in which you saw a pure white figure standing looking into your sister's room, a see-through boy playing with your toys, and a stall-door opening & slamming shut repeatedly, and all you thought was "we'll that was weird"? Hm, well...that's weird... 😐 😕
