This was my very first experience with a spirit. Firstly, you should know that my family, particularly on my mum's side, are more sensitive to spirits. At the time of my experience I was around four or five years old (18 now) and was living in my second house (in my fourth house now). Just to set the scene, this happened in my bedroom which was on the third floor of my house. I had a single four poster bed that had tall posts at each corner of my bed and small poles that where connected to each of the posts at the top. My bed was right up against a wall and on the other side of my bed was my dresser and window. Finally, the door to my room was at the foot of my bed, but you couldn't see the door if you were to lie on my bed as it was hidden by the wall.
Here is what happened. I woke up late into the night. Nothing had woken me up, but I felt wide awake. I was facing my wall and rolled over onto my back. As I did, I looked up to the post on the right end of my bed. Sitting on the top of the small pole that connected the two larger posts was a young boy. I could see him very clearly; he looked completely solid. I would say he looked to be about eight to ten years old. He had short brown hair and brown eyes and was wearing a green shirt with dark coloured pants. I looked right at him, I didn't feel afraid, I actually felt quite comfortable. He smiled at me and gave me a small wave.
Then he spoke to me. He looked at me and asked me "Hi, do you want to come outside and play for a bit?"
Now being the well behaved child that I was I replied "Sorry, I'm not allowed it's too late"
The boy just smiled at me and said "That's alright"
So I rolled back over to face the wall and closed my eyes. I fell asleep maybe two minutes later and didn't wake up until the next morning.
My brother's room was just down the hall from mine, but this little boy wasn't my brother because my brother was two at the time, so there was no way that he could have got into my room, climbed up my bed and just sit there. Plus, if anyone ever walked into my room, the floor boards in my doorway creaked really loudly, so I usually woke up whenever this happened and I did not hear my floorboards creak.
The next morning I remembered everything I told my mum what had happened and she believed me.
A few years ago, my mum went to a medium. She was going because things in our life were a little crazy and we were going through some tough times. She wanted some reassurance that our family (as in me, my brother and my mum) were going to be ok. Halfway through the reading the medium suddenly asked my mum if I had been visited by a small boy when I was younger. (The medium didn't know about this, in fact only I, my mum and my brother knew). My mum said that yes I had been. The medium then said that I would be alright because that young boy was my guardian angel, and that night he had just come to check on me.
So, that's my first experience. There a few more things that have happened to me, and I'll share them later down the track. Thanks for reading.
