The Three Floating Shadows


My name is Erica and I am going to share my first encounter. I have to warn you this is my first time submitting a story so please no harsh, rude or mean comments thank you now here is my story.

I was about 8 years old and my Step-Mother's Mom (Grandmother) And my Uncle Willie just passed. My Mother was braiding my hair for school. It was around 9 p.m and I was in my p.j's. My parents room is across the house from me and my brother's room which was across the hall from mine. My brother was spending the night at his friends house so it was just me and my parents. My mom was done with my hair so I started to walk back to my room with my brush and hair-bands.

As I was walking I heard a strange noise like people mumbling but I thought it was my parents and I just continued walking. I'm walking past the front door when I see three shadows walk through the door from outside and they are leaning against the wall.

I got scared (not knowing what to do) I simply screamed dropped everything and ran back to my parents room. I told my dad and he went out there. Of course there was no signs or tracks of ghost so my dad made me go to sleep.

Later after that I was trying to sleep and I heard: GET OUT, LEAVE US ALONE, HELP ME, TORTURE, DIE,ETC... (Just to make you less confused I had just moved into the house from new york). I don't think those shadows were MY RELATIVES!

Help me please. From this day I still wonder what those three shadows were and most importantly why they showed up to me?

Please give me any tips or suggestions

Thanks a lot for your help

If there's any Hmong shaman's around you're neighbor you can go and ask them for help because they can help you to get rid of ghosts. 😁

[at] Rookdygin,
Thank you very much for your help but the only thing I simply don't understand is my house was BRAND NEW when I bought it. BUT my cousin just moved here and discovered that my house was on an old slave burial ground!
Thank you for your help

Without knowing a full History of the house you lived in at the time it's hard to pinpoint what you may have experienced.

I will say it sounds as if it may have been 'residual' in nature. I base that on what you say you heard...

"Later after that I was trying to sleep and I heard: GET OUT, LEAVE US ALONE, HELP ME, TORTURE, DIE,ETC..."

If it was a simple...'Get Out' or the only statement you heard was...'Leave Us Alone' these statements taken alone may point to an Intelligent Haunting... But everything you heard seems to point towards... Something else that may have happened on the land or in the homes history.

Thank you for sharing this experience with us.
