This is more about the goings on in my childhood home. I have posted another story previously about the poltergeist activity that went on.
This was the main form it took (poltergeist) but a couple of instances it showed itself to both my parents on separate occasions. What was strange was that we lived there as a family for 10 years before anything started happening. Also it only lasted for about a year and a half then suddenly ceased activity.
Luckily I personally only experienced one encounter with the entity (see previous story). It mainly used to appear to my Mum.
Things it used to do, for example, were move things to strange places. My Mum had been out grocery shopping and she had food items in the bottom of my sister's pram. She left the pram outside and was going back and forth loading the shopping into the kitchen. There was a jar of pasta sauce. When she came back that had gone. My Mum was shocked obviously as she was certain it was just there. She never found it. It also used to move the remote control and my Mum would find it in really strange places. She found it behind the washing machine once.
Things used to happen with battery operated toys also. My Mum used to hear one toy go off, only to find it had no batteries. We also had a Scooby-Doo motion activated toy that used to say phrases when you walked past it's sensor. This used to frequently go off on its own saying very ironic phrases such as, "Yipes a ghost." Creepy!
My brother regularly used to have a reoccurring dream about a snake and then always be woken up every time by the same teddy bear falling off the shelf and landing at his feet.
Also one occasion my Mum was watching TV and a bottle of shampoo, which was on the mantle, levitated out and landed straight up on the floor. Directly underneath was a metal fire guard. She thought it was unnatural as it should have landed on the fire guard and maybe fell on the floor. Also she said the room went really cold even with a heater on at the time.
One occasion my Mum saw the entity. She was asleep in bed and woke up suddenly to see a shape of a man standing at the end of the bed. It was glowing and transparent. She said it also had glasses. She screamed and it slowly disappeared.
My Dad also saw it once but in a different form and one that I never heard of before anywhere else. He was sleeping downstairs on the sofa as at the time my parents weren't together anymore. He was visiting. He was sleeping and he was awoken to a white blur above him on the ceiling. He put his glasses on and it became clear.
The way he described it was that it was a glowing mist spreading lengthways and floating downwards. It covered half of the ceiling. He also said it had entrails hanging off which looked like rags and bits of the "rag" were coming off and disappearing into the floor.
He put his head under the covers and eventually looked again and it had gone.
I wonder whether the two apparitions were the same spirit or two different?
