When I was a child, about 5 or 6, I had my first "experience". I was playing in my front yard with my cousins when one of them grabbed me by the arm and told me to look in the woods across the street. In the woods I saw a disembodied hand that was about 6-8 feet tall floating in the air. It was a right hand based on the position of the thumb. The palm of the hand was open and facing me and the palm was bloody. In the palm there was an eye that did not blink. I seem to remember hearing a voice but that part is hazy. The hand hovered in midair. The next thing I can remember is being inside, hiding behind some pillows on the couch and crying because I was terrified. I remember my mom trying to calm me down. I have no idea what it was or where it came from. I have never seen it since.
I live in my childhood home which is in the country and not much has changed since that time, I am now almost 30. The woods where I saw this was around a field and there wasn't anyone around here at the time that could have faked this. I remember the hand vividly and it has always played on my mind. I would like to know what it could have been. I have combed the Internet looking for answers but I haven't found anything like this. I may not have ever seen the hand again but I have had plenty of other experiences in and around my home, in my grandmother's house next door and in my parent's new home behind my house.
We have an old cemetery somewhere near my house, there was a school only a few yards from my house that stood in the 1800's that we aren't sure of what happened to it, at least 3 people have died on the property and I have found arrow heads on my property. All possible explanations I guess. My son is almost five and he has already started seeing things here. My father grew up here and saw a demon above his bed as a child. Non-believing friends of mine have become believers after spending one night here. I can understand all of my other experiences here but I have yet to understand the floating hand.
