Real Ghost Stories

Motherly Apparition Or A More Sinister Entity

 

This story takes place about 5 years ago, before I moved to Florida. At the time, however, I lived in Claremore, Oklahoma.

It started as a usual night before bed; I took my dogs out to go do their business, came back inside, and tucked myself in for the night. I honestly can't remember exactly what time it was, but sometime in the wee morning hours I was awoken, because I was freezing under my blanket cocoon. I also had a weird feeling, like I was being comforted by my mom. I was half awake by this point, about to fall back asleep, until I felt something touch my forehead, resembling the feeling of someone pecking you on the cheek, or in this case, the forehead. This was the end of the happy, comforting feeling, however, because as soon as I felt the touch, I had just exhaled, and couldn't seem to breathe. Out of fear, I kept my eyes shut for a while longer. The whole ordeal seemed to last around 10-20 seconds. It probably seemed like more, considering I was scared and couldn't breathe. Just as I opened my eyes to see what was going on, I was able to breathe again. I also saw something dark leave my room and continue through the hallway. Keep in mind it was dark, so I could not make out any details of the figure.

The next morning, I asked my mom if she had come into my bedroom for whatever reason, but she said she had been asleep the whole night. Of course, when I told her about the ordeal, she brushed it off and didn't want to talk about having a possibly haunted house.

Now, to the topic on having a haunted house.

The house was brand new, and we had only been living in it for a few years. I have kept in mind that it may be the land, however, as I had encountered odd occurrences before.

The figure has not bothered me further, beyond that happening, but I would still like your opinions as to what it was.

I would appreciate any feedback or similar occurrences.

Thank you very much!

Daz- You know, I had never thought of the penal gland's role in hypnotism. That's very interesting.

Now, onto the subject of it happening upon waking up- Does it also have anything to do with ending dreams? The REM stage is the dream state, and this stage increases as the cycles repeat, which, if I remember correctly, shorten the final stage of sleep. Do the chemicals from REM stage have a role in it as well?

This is a pretty neat topic. 😊

Absolutely Shinigami... Some people go through there whole life and never have these types of experiences... Let me give you an example of how the penal gland can be manipulated... Lets look at a hypnotist on stage with a group of people... He starts with about 100 and after 10 or 15 minutes of certain sub conscious testings his left with about 10 people who he can easily control through sub conscious suggestions... Now we all know how funny it is when you see these people barking like dogs and doing tricks on stage etc etc. He basically has them in a subconscious state of mind but consciously has them doing all these acts on his command... So that's how powerful our sub conscious is... It causes these people to see hear and feel what ever he tells them and there spiritual conscious projects them these false reality's... Now with us... When we are waking up or going to sleep... We kind of put our selfs into this state of mind... What drives some of these experiences on most parts are our fears... It is like our fears are the hypnotist in control and subconsciously we act out what we are frighten of in that moment... And that means feeling it... It Touch us and sometimes seeing these projected illusions... I have spent probably the last 10 years trying to understand how it all works... And through my own experiences I have come to this conclusion about the penal gland and how it works... But heres the thing... Sometimes in this transitional state of mind we can have paranormal experiences as well... Knowing the difference between the two is not easy... It is better to rule things out before you rule things in... Especially the not so nice experiences... I have woken up and felt someone choking me... Now I could be writing about that and have a lot of well intended people giving me sound advise... But what I did was laugh... And I alway laugh when I have those demon TYPES of experiences... Cause I know there not real... And so far touch wood... As I laugh... That experiences auto matically disappears... LOL MATE... 😁

Thanks, Daz. So is it possible for this to be a first time occurance? I'm going to have to look up what the penal gland is capable of, cause it sounds pretty interesting. 😊

Also, the reason why I wondered if this were paranormal, was also because prior and after this, my family and myself have had some pretty weird things happen at that house. It kind of makes me wonder if the new owners have experienced anything...

Shinigam...When we are half asleep or wake we are in a spiritual level of consciousness, our penal gland which is in the area of the brain transit our reality too and from our subconscious, the thing is sometimes these experiences are the real deal (paranormal) and sometimes these experiences are fabricated from our imagination... Which is in my opinion a tool that is needed in the spiritual realm... I can't even reassure that every story I wrote is 100 percent paranormal... Although I believe they are... So convincing is the imagination that it is exactly like the real thing... Have you ever heard how some ghost don't know there dead?...well that is because of how powerful the tool of imagination can be... It is possible your experience was real... But I can tell you I have had similar of which I believe they weren't...thanks for sharing mate cheers...

I am from Claremore and I have a similar story to that. Happened when I was a very young girl living in a house that I had grown up in. I had awoke in the middle of the night, seeing what at the time I had thought was my mother. I had a stool in the middle of the room and a woman, who looked like my mother, was walking around the stool what looked like she was picking up clothes. But she kept walking around the stool in a circle. I realized that this could not have been my mother due to the hour of the night. I tried to scream for what seemed forever, in shock I guess, and when I finally did, she looked at me and she had no face (I saw no details) and she ran out of the room (my door was open). That was the first and last I have seen of that spirit. But definitely not the last of my encounters with spirits. 😁

Aussiedaz- I actually thought of that, but some things didn't add up. After I could finally breath, the previous event before I could breath kind of snapped me wide awake, and I sort of sat up while whatever it was left through the hallway. If this may add to a possibility, before and after this encounter, I would constantly have my things go missing, would hear whisperings, would have electronics turning on and off, and would see things in the neighborhood. (It was a weird neighborhood with a lot of spiritual "traffic", if that makes sense). However, I do appreciate the fact that you threw in a possible scientific possibility. I always like to consider normal possibilities before going to a paranormal one. By the way, I read the story Zzsgranny suggested that you wrote, and it was very interesting and well written. I always love reading your stories and other ones that hold my attention.

Zzsgranny- I read all of the comments and laughed through it all. Especially the ones with Australian slang. I didn't even realize "As blind as a bat" was Australian. 😆

Ok There's a little gland somewhere in the midst of our brains refer ed to as the penal gland... When we are between sleeps in a semi state of conscious half a sleep half awake... This gland is most productive and most active... The side affects to the behavior of this gland is open to conjecture... Scientist will tell you that what you are experiencing is transforming from your dreams and relayed to your conscious state of mind... Others will say at this state of consciousness is a doorway to communication with the spiritual realm... I believe there's a bit of truth to both theories... And working out the difference is not always easy... But normally if it is the spiritual realm... There are other activities going on at the same time... Walls banging lights flashing on and off...etc...main thing to do is stay calm and positive about your experience, because if it is your imagination and you start allowing negative thoughts to creep in... It may get worse or even form a poltergeist in some extreme cases...

If you've enough time (and are bored enough) to read ALL the way through it, there's a lot of questions you may have that will be answered...How's that for "mysterious"? 😆 ❤

Shinigami0: Haha well you are sharing the same characteristics as all of us loonies I don't know if that is a good or a bad thing lol 😆 If your interested in the origins of the loony bunch read a story called the 2 little boys from Aussiedaz. Once there start from the begging of the comments page I think it is 4 pages long this will give you a good understanding why we are all on the meds in a cushion padded cell. Hahaha good luck my friend 😁

Shinigami... Yes I am 100% sure here is a quote on the history "Claremore is best known as the home of Will Rogers but its a bit more than that. In around 1800, a band of Indians of the Osage tribe settled in the area of what is now Claremore Oklahoma." futher more the history states "The Rogers family, after whom the county is named, were among the first to settle in the area. Clem Rogers, father of famed statesman Will Rogers, moved to the area, and along with his family, is buried at the Will Rogers Memorial." they the moved to Oologah.

Hasn't happened besides that one time, but I've moved recently, so I don't know if the new owners are dealing with it now. Besides whatever that entity was, there was also other things happening around the house, as well as the area.

I'm still not sure if Jesus would exactly show as an apparition, though. 😕

Keep the faith. Jesus never forsakes us. If it happens again whisper - Is that you our Lord? Hopefully he will show you some sort of sign. Jesus loves you.

Shinigami I also find the thought of poisoning my body with toxins disgusting. I made some bad choices as a youngster but after finding Jesus 3 years ago I have become a different person. I am sorry if I offended you in any way. I was just saying that the Ghost experience could have been the Holy Ghost - our Father Jesus Christ. He died for our sins and he continues to guide us if we seek guidance.

ScepticalSimon-
There probably were indigenous tribes, as Native Americans lived in North America a lot longer than any settlers. It could be possible about the indian burial ground, as that area had a lot of activity.

Nervous_Nev-
I'm sorry, but I feel like your comment was meant to be a joke or troll. I find the taste of alcohol to be rather disgusting, and I'm quite against harming my body by doing drugs or getting drunk. I'm personally offended that you would even suggest that of a person. If you can't be serious about these matters, than please leave my page.

SuperHBK- Hmm, are you sure? I'm pretty well informed on the history, but Will Rodgers was a supporter of the Native Americans and he lived in Oologah. Thanks for the info, though.

I sometimes feel the exact same sensation after a heavy night on the tonic wine and the chinese ching a ling a long legs and the holy ectoplasms. Its called a halloucination which is also known as a trip. I know about these things due to my past which is all behind me now that I've found Jesus. When I feel these 'pecks' on my fore heard now, instead of quivering with fear under my blanket like I used to I now whisper "good night Jesus. God bless you Lord".

Were there any Indigenous American Indians in your towns history? It sounds to me like your house was built on an Ancient Indian Burial Ground. I am only new to this kind of thing but that definitely seems most likely.

okay... The town is quite fascinating regarding its history... Last night I did not sleep for I was to eager to learn more about that town. It goes back to the 1800's when the Indians have settled in. Claremore is named after their first chief Ga-More which means "rains" after the settlement american troops moved in to claim the land but was not successful. Later on Will Rodgers and his family moved to that settlement and bargained with the Indians. That is when the civil war broke out, all the Indians was forced to move but some remained behind. In 1830 Will Rodgers started to construct a railway using those indians that remained behind man, woman, child, even their elders. A lot of people died between the times of 1832- 1860. In 1902 claremore was declared a county of the u.s.a. I hope that you find this interesting for I did. 😁

The town is Claremore and I'm not sure about the cemetary, but I would love to hear the tidbit of history you found, regardless. (What can I say, I love quirky history). 😊
