Thank you for giving me the opportunity to tell my story, I have had several paranormal experiences but I will only share one with you today. It all started when my family moved into this nice big house in southern California, around 1995, I was 15 years old and starting the 9th grade in high school, the house had belonged to an elderly lady. I really don't know the story of this lady or if anybody died in the house, I just know she had moved with her daughter, because of her age. We also noticed the neighbors, they were cubans and we didn't found out that they liked to practice voodoo or something like that until months later.
It all started one night, me and my sister (not the youngest) shared a room, we had bunk beds, she had the top and I had the bottom, we each had a window at the bed level. My sister woke me up telling me that she heard banging on her window she asked me if I had heard anything and I said no. She got scared but not enough to keep her from falling sleep again. We just left it at that. The next night we were sleeping and something woke me up, I just ignored whatever it was but had that uneasy feeling, I was almost sleep when I heard the loudest banging on my window, like two fist had banged the window as hard as anybody can. I sat up, by this time I was scared out of my mind, needless to say I didn't sleep the rest of the night.
The time the man appeared was about 1 year later when I had my own room. It was around 11:00 p.m. And my youngest sister had falling asleep on my bed, so I just got in bed with her and turned on the t.v., my night lamp was on also. My point is that the room was well lit. I was spooing my sister trying to go to sleep when all of a sudden I couldn't move, only my eyes. I could see my sister sleeping next to me and the lamp and the t.v., and I could see the the late night news were on, by this time this type of paralysis was so often I was kind of used to it, its just that I knew that something would happen.
I am laying on my left side I turned my eyes towards the right were something caught my attention and there he was, It was a man standing next to my clothe chest, staring at me. I couldn't believe my eyes, he was so clear, none of that transparent or foggy or smokey he was as clear as day, I could make out the complexion of this clothing, his hair and his eyes. It was what appeared to be an African American male, with dark pants and a jacket that reach his pants pockets. His hair was long and curly at had that wet look. He was modernly dressed, and the weirdest thing is that he had a bat or it could have been a cane in which he was leaning on forward with both hands, there he was just staring at me. I was scared out of my mind, and at the same time I was wondering what is this man doing here? Not really understanding. Just as he appeared he disappeared, and I regained my mobility once again.
Till this day I don't understand what I saw, if it was a spirit that our neighbors had brought or what. Several things happened after that which I will share with you later.
Thank you for reading and hope anybody can help me understand.
