I have always had something with the paranormal around me. When I was a child my sister and I would lie in bed at night and watch these figures go through our parents' bedroom. They never did anything, they were just there. As an adult, I have had things happen like lights turn on and my dog bark for no reason at the wall.
First of all, I have to say that most people have heard something like a noise, but you usually just stop what you are doing and listen again to see if you hear it again...well, this story is NOT like that! What I heard was as plain as day, as if someone was really there.
This story happened in the latter part of January 2011. I had just come home from the gym to my apartment. My husband was at school and so it was just me and the dog. There was no T.V. On, no radio on, nothing was on including the heat. I was standing in the kitchen making tuna salad and all of the sudden over my left shoulder directly in my ear; a male's voice said my name. It said it so clearly and distinctly that I jumped as if a real person did it and I screamed (startled) and turned around to see no one. I immediately ran out the front door, which is in the kitchen, and stood between the outside and inside with my foot in the door crying, a lot. I just kept saying "no, no, no," because I have had a feeling that something was in my apartment before, but now I had this proof that something was there.
The weird thing is that my name is Erica, and the male's voice said my name in 3 syllables. ER-I-CA, while I say my name in 2 syllables, ER-CA (AIR-CA). Right then I double checked outside to see if my husband's car was outside, but it was not. So, I checked the house and nothing was there. I was extremely scared and could not stop crying, so I went and got my husband's cross necklace and my Bible and sat on the couch and prayed. I have not had anything else like that happen to me since then, but I always feel as though I am being watched, even in my sleep. I wake up sometimes and have this overwhelming feeling that someone was over me watching me sleep.
I am not sure if this is something that I should be worried about or what. If anyone has advice, please let me know.
