Lonely Drive At Night on 2010-04-26

As with all grandparents you hear a lot of stories, often very interesting. My grandpa told me this very odd experience a while ago and thought I'd share it with you. This sounds cheesy and clichรฉ, but this story does indeed begin on a dark and stormy night. Back in the 1970s I think it was, my g...

The Man's Face on 2009-03-24

My experience occurred last winter (2008), in February I think, so it is still with me vividly in my head. Nothing like what is said below had ever happened to me before, and no events or such had lead me to imagine what I'm going to tell you. As it only happened about a year and a bit ago, my mind ...

Hello ghost-girl!

The dark shape I can't really understand, but about the gust of wind, that can possibly be explained. If this happened during summer maybe, just the act of having one window slightly open can cause drafts all over the house. For example in my house I always have my bedroom window on the open latch, and on windy days this can cause the doors downstairs to bang. It makes me jump a bit but then I remember "the windows!" I wouldn't worry about this. As for the shadow, as long as it doesn't feel or do anything sinister, you should be just fine.
This has been said a number of times in the comments below, but this is a really important piece of advice. Pick up the phone and call your doctor right away. You may think "a doctor can't treat this", but actually you'll be surprised. Insomnia and nightmares affects a surprising number of people, so if the doctor still can't help you, he/she can refer you to the right person for help.

If you think you can "ride it out" hoping that it will disappear on its own, I think that could be a bad decision. The doctor is pretty much the only person to give you a definitive answer to your problem.

Good luck!
Nice story. Isn't it strange how people get "those feelings" where some houses/rooms just don't feel right. There are many victorian houses around the UK that have a lot of history to them. One of my dad's friends is a painter and decorator and he was working in an old house and was getting negative feelings in one particular room. He then went to the owner of the house and sure enough, that room was haunted by a little girl who used to walk through the walls. The owners even said they are used to it!

About the lightning, my house got struck by lightning once, not a pleasant experience at all. The noise was deafening...
This may sound silly, but I like to think out all of the rational options of all the stories I read before pointing the finger at dead people. This requires a scientific and spiritual open-mindedness so bear with me:)

You say the power went out, so you were without light? Perhaps the shape was nothing more than a reflection on the window pane, and you also mention standing right at the window, and saying the figure was the same height as you- this again points to reflections- a reflection of you to be exact. You also say that darkness scares you, and adding to this you were in pain. Your body's senses were on high alert, making you more susceptible to picking up on things.

Please don't think I'm being critical of your story, I'm just trying to put you at ease. Thanks for the story ๐Ÿ˜

Am I right in assuming the pub is quite an old building?
Moving into a new house can be odd, due to the noises it makes, yet these noises are just part of the character of the house and are almost certainly nothing sinister. I think just moving into a new building had your senses on alert because you are not yet used to your surroundings- it's an old human instinct. I understand though at that age odd noises can be scary ๐Ÿ˜Š

Hello Shashwat,

This sounds like you experienced something called sleep paralysis. This is when you wake up but your body is still paralysed as if still asleep. This experience is actually quite common but most people who suffer from it are greatly discomforted by it.

Most people think that during this experience, they are being held down by someone, or someone is in the room talking to them or whispering in their ear.

Please tell us if you have another experience similar to this and if it is similar to the one mentioned above.

As a person who doesn't necessarily believe in ghosts (I need to see one walking along a street in broad daylight to believe them) I have found this very interesting, but this needs to be thought through rationally.

Surely every "ghost" is an interpretation of your thoughts. You may interpret noises/anomalies as a ghost, when in fact it is just the ambient normal noises the every house makes. I believe that a tulpa may just be an extreme interpretation of unusual happenings, causing someone to create an imaginary copy of themselves, in your case. This is nothing more than psychological and I think you may be overthinking quite simple occurences. I have a friend studying psychology at university, I could ask him about this and get back to you.

This is just my opinion and may not necessarily be true, another perspective on things
No need to be scared at all. In fact, it sounds like you are just not used to the place yet. You will learn after a few years that this place makes different noises to your previous place.

About your cat, I have a cat who constantly attacks the floor and I know my house is not haunted! Many animals pick up on small sounds that we can barely/not hear.

My view is probably the "its not a ghost" view, but who knows.

Either way, don't be worried or scared!

Glad you are okay now Haleybug.
This is a message to everyone that ouija can be very dangerous. You don't want to be asking questions about death, especially your own death. Even if the board is wrong, the mere thought of it circles round your head to the point of suicide/ fortunately for Haleybug near suicide if it wasn't for your friends.

I would never go near ouija, youre dabbling with things that are unknown...

Spockie is right. Ball lightning seems almost paranormal in its nature, but is actually perfectly natural and normal, even though it is rare. Ball lightning can even go through windows, doors and into houses as well. Just don't touch it!

Thanks for the info. I might try this even though I am not a religious person. As a note this morning I had quite a disturbing dream that I could see my own neck rotting. I woke up holding my neck. Been getting quite a few bad dreams during my sleep as well, which might have something to do with it. Anyway thanks again. Will keep you updated about everything:)

Good story. One main point is that at the time you were just 4-5 years old. This is a time when you believe in things such as monsters under your bed etc. Maybe your imagination just went into overdrive for the moment, or your sight mis interpreted something. This is merely one view and I don't necessarily agree or disagree with your story. Thanks for your time ๐Ÿ˜

I have heard of other stories that involve people hearing chains in the highest level of the house. As for the dog and cat fight, that may have occured outside. Still, it is a touching account that is happy in a way, now that the spirit is at rest
