Scary Visit


I had a question and I was hoping to get it answered: My boyfriend has a friend he grew up with in school pretty much all their lives, he had ended up with another of their mutual friends and began dating, this friend of his just recently moved out and they both broke up, I really didn't get in to why, but he had always told my boyfriend that the house they were living in together was haunted. My boyfriend asked him "well why do you say that" and one of many occurrences, he finally couldn't handle it. He exclaimed to my boyfriend that the house they lived in together used to belong to her sister.

She was murdered there, actually her husband shot her with a shot gun before turning the gun on to himself leaving their son with no parents whom now lives with his grandmother. Aside from objects being moved and noises phones constantly ringing etc. He explained an instance where he had just had it.

It began one night when his girlfriend went out with her mom for the evening, he decided to stay home and head to bed early that night. As he gets comfortable to set in, he turns out the light and it is pitch black, pretty much but the glow from the digital light was bright enough to see a silhouett,e actually if you know what I am speaking of, then that small red light illuminates pretty good (those digital alarm clocks). As he was dozing off, he felt like a tug on the foot of the bed, more like someone sitting down, now his girlfriend had already been gone for about an hour at this point, so he figured it was her and she came home he decided to play asleep and scare her as he waited, acting asleep, he could see her coming toward the side of the bed which he was facing, right next to the clock so he could tell it was her (well a woman).

She stood there, he jumped up and yelled RAGGHHHH! And while grabbing her legs he felt her inner thigh, expecting her to scream, all he heard was a gasp like someone gasping for air then the shape turns around and walks calmly away toward the door, this in turn scared him, so he threw his pillow at her and shouted her name (dammit christine) so he jumped up and turned on the light to run out to the hallway. There was no one there, he searched the whole house, even outside but nothing, either way, he knew that whatever it was could have not gotten away that fast from the bed to the door.

He was so freaked out he couldn't even stop jittering. His Girlfriend finally came home, and was surprised at his behavior, but was not surprised at the story. But what gets me is that I am sure that whatever it was, was also surprised at how he unwittingly tried to scare it. I don't think it expected that as it gasps for air, anyway, what I was wondering is he asked "how in the hell could I have felt it" when I jumped up to scare who I thought was my Girlfriend? Can ghosts be touched like that?

You're very much welcome for allowing and accepting my input, and thank you too for your kind words of appreciation. I also appreciate you allowing me to have a bit fun and humor in my comment and at your expense, sorry, and you are a good sport to have not taken personal offense. Yet, I still don't know who was on first though? 😉 Blessings and thanks, Abby

Wow! That's a strange story! Touching a ghost? Or spirit, if you want to call it that? Um I think a lot of things are possible that we humans cannot understand. Many things in the spirit world are not understandable. Whatever or whoever that thing was you boyfriend touched is creepy... Well I don't know the answer but all I know is that we have only a small idea of what goes on in the world... Well have a nice day :D

Ceary :D

You got it Abby. I tried to be detailed but when you are a third party relaying the story it can get sticky 😊. Thank you for your input Abby. You seem to know a lot of these issues you are appreciated 😁
Tygerwolfe: my thoughts exactly with the guy trying to scare a ghost. I bet that is a first. I am sure that the ghost didn't expect that at all. I found that to be amusing and creepy.

Dear monica5,

You're welcome. Thank you, as you are very observant, and I apologize for my error. I should have said your boyfriend's "boy or male" friend or your friend per your boyfriend. I could also tongue and cheek humor in an excuse and say that it was due to my age of confusion and assumption in regards to all the parties within this story, as well as blame the differences on age and generation. Then I would have said your "steady" boyfriend's "boy"friend or your "boy"friend per your "steady" boyfriend. I guess I thought this fellow was also your "boy or male" friend, since you told his ghost story for him. Did I get it right that you are the girlfriend of the "boy"friend of the main character who is the "boy"friend of your boyfriend who also has a live-in girlfriend, but you are not his girlfriend, you are the main character's "boy"friend's girlfriend, but are you the main character's "girl"friend and are you friends with his girlfriend? Is this another sequel to the TV show, "Friends" and by the way, who is on first? 😉 Thanks,--Abby

As I related in my story, it is possible to touch a ghost... But in my case, the ghost wanted to and seemed to expect to be touched... I'm not sure what happened with your ghost... Though I admit to finding the "attempting to scare a ghost" bit rather amusing. :)

I agree with Shane. My first ghost I saw was so clear to see, I was able to see it even with the light on, while others, they were just a blob of light. Poltergiests (I think I spelled that right) might also be the cause.

Thank you all for your input. Abby thank you. I will be sure to relate to my boyfriends friend. You stated in your posts these things happened to my boyfriend, but in fact it is a good friend of his. This experience happened to him. I truly believe that these entities can be touched at times. I was just wondering too if any one else had ever experienced that too. Thank you all again, and hope to read more input.
Bless all,

Dear monica,

Since I have not had the pleasure or displeasure of touching any type of ghost or spirit, I cannot speak from first hand experience. I can say that I have had ghosts or spirits touch me like a brush of the hair, pat on the head, a tap on the shoulder, arm or back and so forth. It actually does feel like another live human being is actually doing it, but I do not see the entity. I have also chosen over the many past years of my life to set physical boundaries and other boundaries with such entities, and perhaps that is why I do not have such visual and other 3D physical experiences. Generally, I experience such entities as a sensitive through my "feelings" and sometimes I will get a vision in my mind's eye what the being looks like or who he/she/it might be. I also get a knowing type of feeling which contains what I will say is like a thought form, personal short story and history or symbols about that being.

I do believe your boyfriend was able to touch the form of a ghost and that is what he did do and experienced. In my opinion, we each have psychic and sensitive abilities that manifest differently in each of us, as we are each unique, even in our own five sense, individual personalities. I also believe that we each have our own individual psychic energy imprint that works as our spirit's way of communication and a way to present ourselves as spirit like a calling card that we leave where ever we go. Thus, in the final analysis, it is up to your boyfriend to conclude what he himself actually experienced based on his own belief system. The rest of us can contribute our same or similar experiences, but in the end it is always up to your boyfriend to decide what occurred. --Abby

I have heard it told that spirits and some entities that have a stronger energy field are able to make themselves almost as real as flesh and blood at least to the people they allow to get that close to them. While others won't see or feel a thing. Thanks for sharing your story with us.

Peace, Love, and Luck be with you.
