Real Ghost Stories

Cold Spots, Shadow & Paralysis


I just got back home from a trip to Wisconsin to see my family. My mom still lives in the house I grew up in. As I mentioned in my previous post my sister and I did the dumb mistake of doing a séance in our basement when I was kid which freaked us out. I still think my basement is creepy. For the most part nothing out of the ordinary happened except for the last few days I was there.

First of all, I kind of freaked myself out by watching some episodes of The Haunted on Animal Planet-I don't have cable at home so I take advantage of my mom's. Later in the day, I was on the computer when I heard a little bell ring. I looked around everywhere but could not find where it was coming from. My mom's house was also unusually cold and the thermostat went up and down a lot.

A day or so later I took a nap because I wasn't feeling well. As I was sleeping I felt something hit me on the chest-almost like when a cat jumps up on you and then I couldn't move. I forced myself to wake up and looked around the room but nothing was there. I have no idea what it was but it's not the first time I've felt something like that in that house. It happened to me when I was younger. My aunt told me that once in a while she thinks she sees someone pass by in the hallway when she is her room and by herself in the house. I continue to feel really cold in my mom's house.

The day before I left I went to visit a friend and hung out to watch the Packer game. Her boyfriend, who is bipolar and on heavy meds was there too and just gave out a really bad vibe. Suddenly her house got really bone chilling cold. She even wondered what was going on and added that it has never felt that cold in her house. I then looked up and saw a shadow fly by down her hallway and past the bathroom. I knew it wasn't any of us because we were all sitting watching the game and it also looked more like a cloud of smoke floating really fast into her bedroom. Then the house got warm again. I said something like what was that? And she said what? But she didn't see the shadow. Her boyfriend was too out of it to even notice anything. She's never mentioned that her house might be haunted but I know she's had some major flooding issues with her home and also there's been a lot of negative energy because of her boyfriend's condition.

Now that I'm back home I feel fine... I don't know if any of this was paranormal activity and although not really frightening I thought I'd share here.

Maybe this shadow person or dark entity has attached itself to your friend's partner, I've heard that if some people feel heavy or droopy even on only one half of the body it can be something trying to posses you or trying to take over:/ it could also be why he might have bi polar? Very farfetched theory but just thought it could be a possibility 😊

Animal ghost are common but not near as common as human but animals have reasons to be stuck here. Perhaps in this case the animal was in lack of a master cause he/she passed away so it followed you home. It could be demonic like a black dog can sometimes resemble. Black Dogs (for instance) can mean a really demonic spirit is lingering with in the bounds of your house. The cat may be following you and giving the guy a negative influence on his energy. There is something lingering around that is giving off horrid vibes so I would be careful. Everything in cases such as this can be quite possible.

The funny thing is that since I came home to Washington I haven't felt anything out of the ordinary. If it was a ghost cat or animal maybe it got scared by the airplane and crazy airports. So it must be tied to the house in Wisconsin. If it does appear I will talk to someone about it. I did have a cat growing up, I loved her very much but she passed away in 2002. She was 18 years old. Long life for a cat.

Well, if its any kind of ghost it would be an animal. From listening to the story I'm thinking cat. Since its going where ever your going, I'm getting that it likes you or is drawn to you by a certain object you may carry or just by your vibes. I'm no expert but if this animal appears again then you might want to have someone come in and check to see. Like a physic or something. Goodbye! Thanks for the story!
