I have lived at my current apartment for almost 2 years this coming July. For the past month or so there has been an increase paranormal activity... At least I believe it is. The house was built in 1938, it was the estate house on a huge lot with servants on the property in (I believe) their own smaller shacks/houses. The property was since subdivided and only the estate house stands. The house has been divided into 3 apartments; my apartment is the top floor and walk up attic (so it's 2 floors).
What has been going on is subtle, so I thought I'd get someone else's input in case I am just fooling myself. It started off slow... Hearing footsteps in the kitchen or attic while I was alone in the house, the feeling of being watched, the feeling like someone entered the room only to find no one there, my dog barking at nothing by the attic door, my dog's adamant avoidance of the attic, doors opening slightly, my husband has felt a hand rubbing his head and I was once (er-hm) grabbed on my a** (lol), etc.
So one day when I was alone and I heard someone walking around, I asked out loud "is someone in the house with me? If so, can you make a noise; maybe tap on the window for me please?"...and wouldn't you know it, there was a clearly audible tap on the window and I was excited to hear it. Since then I talk to it regularly. This may sound crazy but I have a feeling that it's a male and that he's young. I don't know why to be honest, but I just do (maybe because I have 2 small boys and somehow I'm tapping into my maternal instincts?) I also get this *feeling* I think I'm sensing from it... Like a *loving-type* feeling. Or maybe it's just my own joy and excitement at what's going on.
It's done stuff like hide a jar I was looking for, only for me to find it on the floor in the middle of my bedroom... I would have tripped over the thing if it has been there the whole time. I think I can feel when it's around because I feel a very light cool breeze rub past me and I get a tingling sensation where the air brushed against whenever I call out for it. And then, this weekend, when I was in the shower I thought I heard movement in the bathroom so I called out "are you in here?"...I then felt that light breeze against my side so I said "hi, how are you..." blah blah, just chatted.
Then I put my hand against the steamed shower curtain and left my hand print asking it if it could do the same for me. (Maybe I was trying to freak myself out!) Nothing happened so I continued with my shower, got out, wrapped my hair in a towel and as I looked up I see a hand print on the steamed up window! I could not contain my amazement and called in my husband who also saw it! I put my hand next to it to size it up and it's definitely smaller than my hand. I'm 5 feet tall, rather small so my hands aren't big at all. Now I suppose with the size of the hand could have been misleading since it in the steam and it was "drippy" when I noticed it... But there was definitely a hand print, without a doubt, palm and 5 fingers.
Being a natural skeptic, as much as I believe in the paranormal, I also question myself and what I have seen or heard. So what do you think? Any feedback? If it is a ghost, how do I communicate with it? How can I find out who it is and what it wants?
