Firstly I'm new to this site, and I'd like to share my personal ghost story with everyone. I'm a big fan of the paranormal, I've always read ghost stories and legends, I remember I used to see unusual things, I smelt something Odd when I lived in a flat in Campsie when I was about 7 years old. I had no idea what it was, nothing was burning. It smelled like smoke. I also used to hear voices, calling my name, and just jibbersh, like it was all around me even if I was alone. I heard my name being called also, my cat used to stare at nothing as well. Everywhere I go it feels like I'm surrounded by other presences, but I don't know who.
When I was 10 I lived in Marrickville, it was a massive house, about 6 rooms. In my room I'd always feel a nasty little boy who liked scaring me because he thought it was fun, moving my door from side to side and watching me, breathing in my ear all the time.
I was basically a loner at school, I had no friends because everyone thought I was weird and didn't belong, so I brought my doll to school and talked to it every so often because I had no one else. The teasing got bad for me and even in class where I had to sit outside until things calmed down.
I went to the bathroom and was singing while I was looking in the mirror (A Sad Song) and I turned for one minute then back to the mirror which looked like a solid, were-wolf looking thing which was on the wall. I quickly ran out.
When I went overseas I got really sick one day and had the highest fever ever, I couldn't sleep, I woke up in the middle of the night so something saying "Dakota! Wake up!" I woke up, and I needed to go toilet bad, I wasn't afraid of it, I was actually very comfortable with this voice, it seemed like it was helping me.
When I was 13 I had two cats called Dusty and Glow, I loved them so much, they were brother and sister and were never seen without each other.
On my birthday, I was calling out to Dusty so I could say goodbye but She never came, I got worried, I was heading to school and as I opened the gate the road in front of me I saw her lifeless body laying on the road.
I ran over to her and looked at her, she looked horrible, I remember her eyes were unbelievably scary and looked like she was in pain although she was dead, I never stopped crying on that day, I usually don't celebrate my birthday anymore. Glow has dissapeard and I never saw him again.
I knew this girl called Jess who claimed she was psychic and saw things, we spent a lot of time together so basically we were best friends. We decided to do a seance to contact Dusty as I was so desperate. We sat in the backroom of my house, we put a round table in the middle of the room with a white candle in the middle, a picture of Dusty on my phone and a bit of cheese (Don't ask, I figured Dusty liked cheese!)
So we turned off the light and the room was pretty dark. We held hands and chanted "Please Dusty come to us." We chanted it repeatedly until I stared into the candle, it started flickering wildly and Jess screamed, I asked her what was wrong and she said she saw a human face. I looked back into the candle and I saw which seemed to resemble a cat skull floating over the flame. My heart was racing now. Then it dissapeared, a bright green light started floating to me out of nowhere. I kept blinking to see if it was real and it kept coming at me, and we let go of each others hand. I ran to the kitchen, looked to through the door to my backyard and saw a green figure walk straight then dissapear. The lights in my room sometimes flicker also. When me and Mel are together the ghost problem seems to happen often. Millie's really bad and cheeky and gives us a hard time.
Then weird things started happening. I'd see a lot of shadow people. They used to give me nightmares and when I went to sleep I felt like I was being grabbed, I woke up with scratch marks, I'd hear talking and see faces and spiders everywhere, not real spiders though. As I got to get used to this and I did some reasearch. I'm not afraid anymore. They backed down and things aren't bad as they were before.
I have another friend called Jess but we'll call her "Mel" so we don't get confused, I remember I wanted to send them back. She's psychic also. We have this strange bond which I can't explain, she reads my mind, I read hers, I know what she's feeling and mood she's in. We were siting outside on the trampoline and my sister and her brother and sister were in the garage playing, so we opened this book called "the Quran" and we kept saying, go back to where you came from. Then everyone came running out of the garage, and her younger brother started crying, he said he saw people. A mother, Father, Girl, and Boy, and a baby.
Then we both started to see things, Milli (the little girl) is down right horrible. I slept in a room alone and she used to hum a freaky tune, skip up and down my hallway and I heard a lot of giggling like she was purposely scaring me. Then she left me after a while and went to Mel's house and started doing the same thing to her. Then John came (The father) and stayed in my room. I'd feel his presence; his feelings; anger, hatred, and jealousy. I have a double bed and he always stays on the left side. When Mel slept over my house, we were in a room and it was night time, I heard singing and we ended up arguing over who was going to check it out, and, unfortunately, I lost, so I had to go check it out. She was laying in bed and found out it was my sister, so we went to sleep. Next morning she said "Dakota...Something growled at me when you left, I felt breathing near my ear and something tried to drag me off the bed." I had a strong feeling it was John, I usually see him crawling on the walls, though, just the outline of him (Shadow ghost).
My door opens and closes, I heard a lot of mumbled, gibberish voices that I can't understand, I try to but I can't. I remember I was laying in bed and tried to take a picture of them at night time cause I felt them in the room, I heard a loud squeal and I nearly litterly cried my eyes out, I hid under the covers and never did it again. John follows me wherever I go. Activity stopped but it started up again. Millie stays with Mel. I only once saw the little boy when Mel slept over. He's harmless, He was leaning over my leg like he was looking for something. I feel now that I'm more open to spirits, I seem to notice them more and I think it's growing inside of me, I want to help the dead who haven't passed on but I need help opening my mind more.
I see random colors, I don't know what it is though, like circles or mists looking thing.
I remember about 4 days ago I told Mel how I used to see this cat in my house whom I call Shadow; telling her I haven't seen him in months and how bad I missed him, I saw it as a solid form, It usually sat in the kitchen licking itself clean, I was sitting in my room once, heard meowing at the door, opened it, and felt like Shadow walked in. Then the next time after I talked about it I thought I saw a cat run into the seance room, where I did the seance, I was so sure I quickly went to see if mum got a new cat. But it wasn't there.
John is the main one I'm afraid of, because I have heard him, and I was laying down in my bed ages ago when all of a sudden I woke up, It felt like someone was in my room, and I looked to the side on the left side feeling John there next to me, but I was too tired to be scared and went back to sleep. Then out of nowhere, it felt like something whacked me on the head, this frightens me. I looked around, no one was there, So I went back to sleep, then it whacked me hard again, and I bolted out of the room like I was on fire. It seems that he's jealous when people are with me, mainly my close friends.
I sometimes see figures walking around, they come mostly when it's really dark, I want to know what the voices say, I tried asking them if they needed help, they don't answer sometimes, I hear tapping noises like someones touching things, Voices, Like I'm being touched, and see colours. I want to also see them more clearly but sometimes I'm afraid, I've also had sleep paralysis once but that was a long time ago.
I feel and see different spirits, mainly John, I used to see things even before the seance, I want to know if I'm Psychic or if someone can help me and tell me what's going on?
I now longer see Jess, This ghost thing happened even before I did the seance. I feel that I'm odd, I'm not sure if I'm sensitive to the paranormal or not? I really need help. Any info would be appreciated.:) I'd also like to know how I can improve my ability if I do have one? And what are these Ghosts and What do I do?
I still feel presence of some ghosts in my room, they seem to bother me only.
