This is fairly lengthy but I hope some of you will take the time to read it and help me figure out what's going on at my place. It would be greatly appreciated!
I live in Perth, Western Australia. The house I am living in now is fairly old but I wouldn't call it "very old". I've lived here since I was in year 2 (5-6 years old) and I am now 20. Before my family and I moved in, mum would be very wary of setting foot in the place, and would mention that the first owner of the house had something terrible happen to them. She wouldn't elaborate any further.
Both my mother and I have sensed strange things on numerous occasions, and both of us have what you might call psychic abilities to some extent, depending on how you choose to view it. Both her and I have been able to sense the paranormal for as long as I can remember, and her side of the family is particularly sensitive to it.
Over the past few years, I have experienced the ominous feeling of being watched in my own house, by something that I can't visually detect (most of the time). I know it's there, because I can strongly sense it and have seen it for fleeting seconds every now and again.
One night, some months ago, I woke up because the room had grown cold. I usually leave my bedroom door closed unless it is too hot or I just want a little light to filter through from the kitchen, since we always leave the kitchen light on at night time. Feeling wide awake with an unexpected fear, my eyes darted to my doorway. My bed rests against the wall of the left side of my bedroom (when viewed from the entrance) so I always have a clear view of my door when I sleep on my left side.
I noticed that my door was wide open, and I didn't remember leaving it that way because I don't usually do that. My mum was fast asleep and my sister was staying at her dad's place for the night. To my horror, I saw a small figure watching me from the entrance of my room. It looked like a "dense" shadow. I'm not quite sure how else to explain it. Slightly propping myself up on one elbow, I spoke out my little sister's name thinking it was probably her (I thought maybe she had changed her mind and had been dropped off during the night). Then suddenly, the being rushed up to my bedside in the blink of an eye and moved alarmingly close to my face. Terrified, I found myself staring into a face with no discernable nose or eyes, and a gaping wide mouth. Where its eyes were meant to be, were dark holes from what I can remember, anyway. I'm not too sure.
My body froze in horror. Moments passed with just that creature and me in the room, "gazes" transfixed on each other's faces. Eventually, I was able to snap out of the frozen state my body had taken on in fright and I flailed and kicked at the thing until it suddenly dissipated with a blood-curdling sound that reminded me of an anguished scream of some sort. I heard it out loud and deep within my head, if that makes sense. It made my hair stand on end and my heart beat alarmingly fast.
To this day, I have no idea what it was. A demon of some sort? I don't know what it wanted. It was terrifying and every so often I catch glimpses of shadow-like people/creatures from my peripheral vision. I've heard many a tale about these beings but even so, I can't help but wonder if they are meant to be good or bad, or what?
Many times I've awoken from sleep from someone calling my name, and it is usually a man or someone who sounds a lot like me. Even when I'm not asleep, I sometimes hear whoever it is calling my name. And occasionally, I can feel something touching me that I can't see.
Last night, I was sitting at my laptop doing a virus scan when I felt the hair on the back of my neck prickle and a very distinct hand placed itself on my nape. I felt the palms and fingers and everything. Even though the air around me was suddenly freezing, the hand on my neck felt strangely warm, temperature wise. I couldn't figure out if the touch was malevolent or benevolent in nature, but it did frighten me.
I can't tell if it is just trying to communicate with us, or if it just wants to give us a scare for the hell of it?
