My story begins practically right from when I was born. My whole family is very spiritual and a majority of them are psychic or have had paranormal encounters.
First of, I'll start by saying all of these events have occurred in various places, as my family and I tend to move around a lot but all within the same city.
Now, People may say this is a typical case of a over-active imagination but, my first ghostly encounter occurred when I was around 6.
My older brother used to own this really creepy and distorted halloween mask which I was always petrified of and refused to go near. But of course because of my young age, my mother and brother didn't take much notice of it.
Until one night I was trying to get to sleep in my bedroom which I shared with my brother at the time. (Back then we lived in a big, two story house which was pretty old so the room was quite old fashioned.) Well, As I was trying to fall asleep I had a sudden urge to look over to the walk-in closet we shared, as I rolled over to do so, I caught sight of a large black shadowy figure hovering in the door frame of the closet wearing the halloween mask I was petrified of.
Now, Let me try and define this 'figure.' It looked to be about 6"0 and was wearing what looked like something the grim reaper would wear and it was just hovering by the closet door way... I couldn't see any hands or feet and its face was covered by the creepy mask. Paralyzed with fear, I'm staring at this figure for a good 10 seconds, so I'm positive I wasn't imagining this. Finally, I mustered up the courage to roll over and close my eyes and hope like heck the 'thing' was gone. What felt like hours later I boldly rolled back over to check if it was there, and thankfully nothing was there apart from our empty closet. By then I was crying with fear (Remember, I was around 6 Years-old) and jumped out of bed and sprinted to my Mother's room for safety.
Many other things occurred during our time there but nothing matched up to my creepy encounter. And we moved out in 2007.
Things 'heated up' a little bit when we moved into our 3rd home. Which was literally just a block away from our old house in a nice, suburban area. By then I was becoming more aware of the paranormal and more open to it, at the young age of 10.
I first noticed strange happenings when we were just moving in. This house was much different to our old one, Much more modern and right next door to a protected forest which was one of the reasons it drew my mother in to buying it. For the readers sake I'll also mention the reason we moved was because things within our family were starting to go down hill.
My friend and I would always go to this house after school while my family was busy moving in. At first we thought we were imagining things when we started hearing noises as if someone else was in the house. Banging, Walking around, Doors slamming, Scraping... We told my mother but she brushed it off as us being silly.
Fast forwarding a bit, these entities started to get really active, We would always hear walking around the top story of our house and lights would turn on and off by themselves, Taps would turn on and off on their own accord... My toys would always be moved, We ALL saw quick flashes of shadows and so on.
The breaking point was when my mother was putting my washing away in my room and out of NO WHERE a big bubble comes floating down from my ceiling, It just literally came out of no where or came through the wall, Astounded... My mother called out for my brother to grab a camera and take some photos. We're still not sure what it could be as, It seemed like an orb, except... Clear in color and clearly visible to the Human eye as a 'bubble.'
Things got progressively worse for my family as we went bankrupt, lost our business, car and in the end... Our house. Along with serious family fights and negativity and multiple suicide attempts. Which brings me to believe we might have attracted some new Entities or just made our old ones more active.
In the end, we moved house and yet again only a block away from our old house. And we are still currently occupying the same place. It is a old wooden house, built in the early 1900 with no insulation. By that time I was 12, and super aware of the paranormal and studied it for a hobby. And I do believe we brought our entities with us, as the activity continued and in some ways, stronger than ever.
As my family is fairly physic we've identified that we have multiple entities, 2 Poltergeist's by the looks of things, One of them is a child. As they like to play jokes and hide very important objects around various areas of the house. And a older man (Whom I have seen multiple times) who shows itself as being completely black.
My Mother also senses a few Animal entities, 2 of which I have seen. One of them is a dog, fairly large in size and jet black, (So possibly a Shadow Animal?) I didn't get to see its face because it zoomed past me and the other one is a cat, yet again, Black... But this one I don't know if its a Shadow Animal or not as I Felt it brush past me. So my best guess is that its a pervious family pet come to say hello.
The activity in our house is fairly normal to others encounters, Lights turning on and off, Appliances being turned on by their own accord, Foot steps, Muffled voices, Quick glances of figures... Etc etc...
For some reason a lot of the activity has been drawn to me lately. My radio keeps turning itself on at the most random of times and I keep seeing quick flashes of people. I can also hear someone whispering to me but I cannot make out any words along with breathing. Night time seems to be the most active. Most nights I feel a presence in my room and I can feel pressure by my legs when I'm in bed (It feels as if its a cat as I can hear faint purring and feel needling) My mother also feels this too except much more vivid than i. (I'm wondering if this has something to do with her being more open to them and more 'tuned' to the paranormal world?)
These Entities are also quite helpful at times, like turning off lights, or giving us the feeling to go check something... Etc etc... So they don't bother us. We don't feel threatened by them in the slightest and they give off a good vibe, so I'm thinking they are peaceful entities and don't mean any harm.
There is much more to say but I've already made this story much too long and I apologize if its quite boring. I'm just curious as to what the readers think and if you can answer my questions. One last thing to add, I'm wanting to be more open to the paranormal but I have no clue how to make myself more open, any help with that would be much appreciated.
Thank you for reading my story and all comments and feedback is much appreciated. (:
