I'm 29 years old

Born and raised in NYC

My family was born in the Dominican Republic but later moved to the U.S.

My family was into "Santeria" pretty heavily although they do believe in God. "Santeria" is seen as a sin or of evil origin to some because it involves invoking spirits. Others called it brujeria or witchcraft.

I have been having supernatural encounters from a very young age. I thought it was cool at first, thinking it must be awesome to see/hear spirits. Not so much anymore. [laugh]

I love to read. I had stopped a couple years ago but I'm back into it. I recommend "The Walking Dead" graphic novel. Awesome! When I'm not reading I'm probably on Xbox Live. Can anyone say Left 4 Dead 2?

I'm a big fan of motogp. I LOVE MOTORCYLCES! I ride an 07' gixxer. I joined a motorcycle club recently. They're a pretty humble bunch which is rubbing off on me. I tend to gravitate towards positive people. I've had enough negativity in my life.
 
Ghost Stories from LucidDreamer

The Woman In The Wheelchair on 2011-03-22

November 2nd or Day of the Dead I was a child at the time but I don't recall how old I was exactly. We had gathered at my grandmother's apartment to pay our respects. Well I was there to play but the adults meant business. There may have been a ceremony held but I've witnessed so many that I can't ...

In Bad Company on 2011-03-15

Iwanted to give you all a bit of info about myself before I get into my most recent experience. I grew up in a very spiritual family. My mom has had experiences for as long as I can remember. I recall her complaining about someone sitting beside her in bed on more than one occasion, whispering in he...

That is an awesome story as well as hilarious. Shortest tour ever recorded. I can see it all in my head now. "Here is the front door" (Everyone goes in and goes up to the bedroom). "This is the bedroom his son found him in that morning" (Cue footsteps followed by room temperature dropping). "Tours over! Every man, woman, and child for him/herself!" OMG priceless. 😆 😆
Cosmogal926,

It was more like 5% bravery and 95% ignorance. As I mentioned before I thought it was one big trick to scare us. 😭

I'm just glad they didn't mean us any harm.

Chicken-nugget22,

I agree with you 100 percent. Sometimes I feel like going out looking for things will just attract them to you.

Okay I trimmed the video and converted the audio and uploaded it to soundcloud. Here's the link:

The sounds you hear prior to the whisper is me turning over from my stomach onto my back.

Please don't jinx me Chosen_One101. 😆

Thanks for the input everyone. It has been pretty helpful in understanding what I've been experiencing. It's still a bit confusing at times but at least I am not in the dark completely.

As of late I haven't experienced any sleep paralysis or strange, out of the ordinary dreams. I did buy a webcam to attempt and record my sleep paralysis but no luck. I did however, catch something that sounded like a whisper. I played it for my older brother and he was speechless. My younger brother just walked out of the room. 😆
JustCurious,

Mission accomplished. I do believe they meant for me to show respect. Although I did question whether what I saw was real or not. I guess there's a part of me that wants to believe I'm off the rocker. It's a lot easier than admitting to what really happened.
Wow Javelina! Your comment about not messing with the elderly really hit home. I have this one story made up of several incidents but it seems more of a mystery than anything supernatural. It concerns my grandma... When doesn't it? 😆 Sorry grandma. For now I'll ask you guys a question... Is it possible to have some sort of hold on a spirit? For all I know my grandma was summoning someone who was dressed up.

I asked my grandma and she just gave me a creepy smile. My mom doesn't know and neither does my aunt. I still have to ask my uncle who as it happens still lives there.
Hey Peter and Rachel,

That gave me chills. I don't know if I could handle seeing them as they died. Are they not bothered by it any longer?

I almost went in my pants as a kid when someone showed up to a Halloween party dressed as a decapitated bride with an eye on her chest. I took off as if it were the Indy 500 except I wasn't in a car. Take a guess who had the pleasure of opening the door when they knocked? 😆
Javelina,

See now I want to let a chuckle out but I don't need anything happening around here. It's about to be 1:00 AM and all the lights in the house are out. I already get the creepy feeling that something is hanging out downstairs.

That does creep me out though. Looks like they're keeping you in check.😨

It reminds me of a story my grandmother told me some years back. She would hear pots and pans banging around and falling to the floor. When she went into the kitchen everything was in place. By the way it was during the middle of the night and no sign of forced entry. My mom was awakened by the noise as well.

I also hate rocking chairs!😆 Most ghost stories in Santo Domingo revolve around rocking chairs. (Dominican Republic still gives me the creeps!)

Chicken-nugget22,

I'm not sure as well. I never looked into it for the following reasons: 1. It didn't happen on a regular basis 2. I was really young 3. It's not following me... GOD FORBID! Cruz y raya! I don't know how it works but if they're free to roam on that day maybe they weren't in anyway attached to the building.

That's interesting. I've also witnessed something along those lines.

My family practiced "Santeria" which is linked to the occult and let me tell you, it was some scary stuff (for lack of a better word). The invoked spirits would smoke cigars and chug down hard liquor straight out of the bottle, as if it were a glass of water. By the way, that wasn't the scary part. 😆

Hi Dudester,

When she appeared to you was she transparent or did she appear to be flesh and bone? I saw something as a child and to this day I don't know what it was.

I've woken up once or twice gasping for air from what I can remember. One of those times being around the time I first began experiencing the paralysis.

I have a couple of interesting dreams that tend to revolve around spirits of loved ones and/or evil entities. I know what it's like to touch or be touched by whoever appears when my subconscious is in control but I react differently when it's something that doesn't belong there. I just realized that whenever my dreams take that right turn at Albuquerque, I wake up paralyzed. When I dream about loved ones, I feel a warm current inside of me while we talk. When it's something evil, my breathing comes to almost a complete stop, I tense up and feel that I can't move, mind you I'm still dreaming; and when I open my eyes I'm paralyzed.

Here is an interesting one. This was about a week later after I posted my story. Until recently I never got along with my mom so it wasn't the first time I have a dream about us fighting. Every time I would attempt to reach out to her I would have that dream that always ended in an argument. Little did I know this one would be different. To make a long story short, we were about to get into a heated argument when out of nowhere I yelled, "You are not going to trick me! Get the hell out of here!" She just stood there staring at me, the lights flickered, and then everything went dark. I got chills and woke up to find myself paralyzed. I was on my stomach this time and felt something heavy on my back. I prayed to God and it was gone within seconds.

It seems that my dreams and my paralysis go hand in hand. It's never after I have a normal dream. It always comes around when I get goosebumps or a bad feeling something is with me.

I will definitely be looking into OBE. I told my dad about waking up paralyzed a few years ago and he said to embrace the feeling. He had a co-worker who could do it too. I tried it and it felt like I shot right out of my body. I even saw myself leave the planet but I convinced myself that wasn't real. It really did feel like flying at high speeds, as if I was yanked. I haven't told him of my recent experiences because he is freaked out enough as it is. He says his mother in law appeared to him and told him to let her rest in peace. He would always compare his wife to her. Now the lights downstairs are always on until he decides to go to bed.

Back then it only felt like there were weights on my hands or feet and sometimes my head. The sensations of being touched started up in the story above. What got me searching and ultimately landed me here was the sensation of someone sitting by my face or climbing in bed behind me.

I'll keep you guys posted on anything new.

I just wanted to say thanks to all who posted feedback. I'm still in the process of trying to debunk this phenomena so I'm taking everything into consideration.

I have watched two documentaries on the matter and frankly, the scientific experts don't sound too convincing.

I kept a cool head while it was happening, as not to influence it directly. I tried sleeping on my stomach and my sides with the same results. I don't think my sleeping position has a part to play but I will try slightly elevating my body.

A part me of thinks there's something else behind all of it and the other says there's an explanation for it. I will be honest and say supernatural phenomena is up by one.
