When I was a kid, my family and I lived in a house in DeQuincy, LA. I was probably in the second or third grade at the time. I would see these strange things that no one else could see. I would repeatedly see a black mass in the shape of a person run across the opening of the hallway going to my room. I could never tell my parents because they were religious and I was afraid to get in trouble. I was never really sure what I was seeing but after research, I am sure that what I was seeing was not of my world. I was a child, why could I see these things and no one else could? I was terrified to go into my room or to leave my room because I was constantly freezing in that hallway. To this day, I have told no one.
There was another instance where shortly after my grandmother had died, I walked into my room and I saw her face in the mirror on the wall. I asked my mom to take the mirror down but when she would ask why? I didn't have an answer. I was afraid of that mirror.
I was so sensitive to things around me no matter where I went. It's a shame that I lost that ability over the years. I could not understand what I was seeing but now I know and it was amazing to have known that I had that ability at one time. The black masses in the hallway left a lingering feeling of dread in me and I was not a fearful child. I used to think it was a monster or something awful. I was innocent to the world of paranormal and to see something like that from a child's point of view is scary and heart stopping.
