Shock Whilst Reading


This one happened about a month or so ago in Australia, whilst I was up one night, reading with my torch under my covers, because my family didn't want me to stay awake all night; but I couldn't stop. I've always been as creative as possible, always able to see, hear and feel things other people couldn't; and my parents believe it's what helps me create.

Anyway, I was reading and I felt my bed springs bounce hard. I thought it was my dog Molly (a small English cocker spaniel, not heavy at all) coming to sleep with me, because she often couldn't decide who to go to - me my sister or my parents. So I reached out to stroke her, and my hand passed over something cold. My hair stood on end and I tore the covers off the top of my head and tried to see what it was, but nothing was there. Terrified, I reached over to turn on the light. As I flicked it on, I looked over to the chair in the corner of my room, and saw the same figure I'd seen almost every day when I was little sat in the chair. But this time, its colour was darker. It didn't seem too happy, and I was suddenly freezing; even though I had the heaters on. Was Nate angry because I was up when I shouldn't be?

Is this normal? I think I might have peed him off or something... I keep seeing him, even though I've moved countries! I'll try talking with him, see what he wants, maybe I could help.

Thank you guys for all of your comments, I've got to say that it is rare for him to show himself, and Katarina, I would love to hear more about your spirit guide; you may email me if you like, my email should be on my profile (:

Hey Frankie, I was hoping to chat with you sometime (maybe by email or just these comments), because I have a similar spirit that follows me around. About two years ago I got very sick, and that was when my spirit guide presented himself. His appearance is kind of like Nate (pale, teen/young adult, lanky), and I've never talked to anybody with a spirit guide like mine. I don't know if you consider Nate to be a guardian or not, but since he seems to care for you, follows you around, and means you no harm, that's just kind of what it reminded me of. Anyways, hope to talk to you soon. ❤

I'd like to know who he is exactly.
Try these experiments to ask him about:
Who are you? Is there anything I can help you with? And why do I attract you? What are you?
I know it sounds wild, I remember that I am reborn and before I died of pain in my stomach, I wanted a nice family and I were born into the family... Well on to the case. Tell him if he will pass it's not bad "on the other side" as you have heard from other people (me).

Best regards

Perhaps he is a spirit guide? He's probably angry about something fairly arbitrary, perhaps that you were up reading when you shouldnt have been? Spirit guides are there to keep you safe and in a way are like parents. He's probably nothing to worry about. Try talking to him, you might make a friend.

Maybe the ghost liked you so much... Like a friend or something... And decided to follow you and protect you. However if it was like a dark black color, you should probably be careful because (and I'm not trying to scare you or anything) most people's experiences with black ghosts or figures tend to be those experiences shared with demons. Or maybe it's not a bad demon and either just wants attention, help, or is trying to tell you something. Well, good luck and thanks for sharing your story! ❤ 😊 ❤

Play the WORD OF GOD IN YOUR HOME THE KING JAMES VERSIONS. That sends all spirits to where they are suppose to go. Someone may have the whole thing on a dvd or cd. I know I have know works every time. I love Jesus

onix9009 That attention trick does not always work. In some cases it does but not all. Somethings don't feed off attention they have a cause and do not go away even if you shut your eyes and pretend its not there. I have read and sometimes said by preachers by the way that to git rid of a entity you have to find out what it wants. Sometimes it can be laid to rest to pass on often this is done best by someone with practice. Sometimes fooling in what you don't know gets you in trouble. Ignoring it may not help at all. I am not christian but if you are when it comes back say in the name of god the son and the holy ghost what do you want. If things still go horridly you can always command it to leave but you must stand strong in corage and in faith and command firmly in the name of god the son and the holy ghost I command you to leave this house. If you are not of that faith you use your own faith prayers and if no faith cut it down to what do you want but in all cases you must be firm and strong if you back away from it you will lose all power. Because it is there does not in any way shape or form mean its of evil intent. If it was only a one time deal I would have agreed with the setiment to forget it. With it there now and not leaving I don't imagine ignoring the problem to solve the problem. In the best of cases things just want their story heard nothing more and worse cases ummm yeah we will cross that bridge when we get there.

The best thing for you to do with a ghost is not to give it attention don't even think about it don't even bother to tell it to go away... Trust me it will go away if you don't feed it attention... 😉

Hello Frankie_Elise,

When I had read this new sharing of you I first went to read about your history with this ghost which you shared in your other story. It's freaky to think he moved house with you guys! I'll repeat my advice of my first coment to you: tell him to back off. And try to talk to your mother about him since she seems to be more open to the super natural. Its better not to stay alone with this I think. Thank you for the sharing, enjoyed reading both your posts.

Either help this guy cross over or send him on his way. This thing is getting real old real fast. And if he refuses to cross then tell him he's got to move on. There are lots of spirits out there that also need your help. If you decide that's what you would like to do then this one's got to go. He's being selfish by keeping the others away, and he's way overstayed his welcome. 😐

Maybe I shouldv'e told him about moving, I just assumed that seeing as he was everywhere, he wouldv'e heard it mentioned at one time or another.
I'll talk with him and say sorry, maybe he'll forgive me. But Nate is in no way shape or form evil or harmful, but thank you for your concern!

Also, I've just been woken up last night, by being pulled off the bed... It sounded as though he jumped on to it when I was off... I guess I wasn't sharing; because he let me up as soon as he "lay down" (:
❤ Frankie

its possible nate is unhappy you moved but talking to him might help as he has never done anything to harm you he might just be annoyed, did you tell him you were moving? Maybe saying sorry will help too.
Keep us posted.

That's really strange! Maybe he was a little mad at you for moving away from him where he isn't as strong. I think he just wants to be friends. Please keep us posted!
With all due respect,

Thats strange, I think moving houses and moving away from them gets them angry, I would be very careful because I think it's dangerous, I recommend a priest.
I hope all goes well!
