My ghost story starts years and years ago. I was roughly around 8 or maybe a tad bit younger when I was visited by a being no longer in this world.
Growing up I lived in an older house in a small town. We had an upstairs and my sister and I slept up there. We had separate rooms but a doorway connected the two rooms. Unless there was a sheet up in the doorway, I could see straight into her room and vice versa. One night in the early morning hours, probably around 3 or 4am, I woke up out of a sound sleep.
Nothing startled me and nothing woke me up, I just simply woke up and laid there. This is one of those moments where you do something or something happens but your not sure why. Once I woke up my eyes went straight to the doorway. Usually I would see straight into my sisters room but someone was blocking part of the door way.
A woman was standing there in a light purple shirt. Her shoulders and up were underneath some sort of shadow but I knew she was staring straight at me. Somewhere deep down inside I felt calm, protected, and watched over. Not even the tiniest bit of fear filled me, it was as if I was looking at someone I knew. Initially you would think its my sister, maybe she's sleep walking or playing a joke on me, but I could see her sleeping in a ball in her bed when I looked passed the woman. I should've been scared, or at least alarmed considering some woman is staring me down but like I said, I felt completely comfortable.
I only got to see her for a couple minutes and I went right back to sleep. The next day I told my mom what I saw but she just laughed and thought I was comin up with it. But 12 years later, I'm 20, and I remember it like it was yesterday. Now she believes me, because something I just made up to get attention wouldn't stick with me all these years. Ever since that night, I've felt one step closer to the spirit world, I'm not quite psychic but I feel like I know when there's a spirit around and I know when there's a spirit visiting me or at least trying to. I wish I could communicate but I can only feel them trying to make there presence known.
