I used to be unaware, or I guess sceptical towards the subject of the paranormal. That is until I had an experience.
My family moved around a lot, and my other family members have also had paranormal experiences that I weren't aware of before I reached my teens. Such as my brother when he was around 12, he had a bunny in his room, and in the night, he would hear someone sliding their hands over the cage, not gently, like it was meant to tease the animal and stress it. And he could see nothing there.
Back to my story though. I was around 10-12 when I had my experience.
I was sound asleep in my room, when I woke up in the middle of the night like something forced me awake. I tried to get up, because I was scared, but I couldn't. I was held down by what seemed to be the presence of someone to my left. I couldn't see or make out who it was, but I felt someone there. The room seemed different than normal. Nothing visual was different, but it felt like it. I also felt like someone was holding my hand strongly, and was smiling at me.
Even though it seems like a nice experience I was scared. I tried to scream but I couldn't. Eventually I fell asleep again. I tried talking to my family about my experience, but no one seems to really believe it, and brush it away.
Even though I couldn't see who it was, it felt like it was my Great Grandmother, I strongly believe it could have been her. It only happened once. Could it have been her?
I'd like to hear from some people who do believe in the paranormal... Any opinions?
