Rustling Noises


I was in the kitchen at around 11:00PM making some toast (I was feeling peckish) and I was already feeling shaken as being a very superstitious person, I hated being alone in the night especially when everyone appears to be asleep! So as I was waiting by the toaster waiting for the toast to pop up I heard a rustling under the dining table (my kitchen has an open area which leads into the dining room which then leads into the living room and so on...) and I thought... what is that! And I knew we didn't have mice! So after I was frozen in fright, the toast popped up and it frightened the living daylights out of me, so I grabbed the toast and calmed myself down.

Then I heard a sound like someone speaking and I was more than prepared to assume that it was our next door neighbors but they were asleep and it sounded like it was coming from the living room, so I crept into the living room and saw nothing. Then I went back into the kitchen and continued my toast ritual and then I heard the voice speaking but in a mocking sort of voice, like it was making fun of me, then the rustling under the table began again and I was terrified by this time so I looked around and under the table seeing nothing and no one.

The lights in the kitchen started dimming and then it went off, totally leaving me in pitch darkness and I could feel the whole room go eerily freezing cold and I felt almost lifeless. I ran with all I had into my room and huddled under the quilt, then with almighty force the quilt came off me and I ran in tears now into my parents room and huddled with them and told them what happened!

I have never been able to sleep alone without being afraid anymore! Strange occurrences still occur I wonder what it could be... Also note that this was about a year ago.

hiya it seems to me some spirits who talk about you or make fun about you don't think you can hear them. Sometimes you can't see them but only hear them. I had a experience like this last week I heard a little girl's voice coming from upstairs then she banged. I couldn't find her. I don't know what she was saying either I think she was just playing. Its not the only time I heard voices the other time was just saying my name and telling me to open the door. I opened the door and my nan was just 2 minutes away from knocking on the door. The voices I hear are not negative. If you want to get rid of these spirits say please leave. You can also talk to a priest. Get some holy water fill a glass up half way then put it on the bed side table next to where you sleep I think it has to be on a half moon night. I got told that you have to put salt on your walls. I hoped I helped I have seen 3 ghosts and just heard the 4th one all in the this year this has happened. I hoped I helped thanks for sharing your story with us. I enjoyed reading it. 😊 I know it can affect you when something like this happens don't let it get you down you have to fight these things. If there is a next time stand up to it

I would have to agree, this sounds like poltergeist activity to me. Not anything that will do physical harm, but can certainly scare the dickens out of you!

Please don't let whatever happened scare you from your peace of mind and from your solitude. Say a few paryers, hang a cross in your room over your bed. Get a Bible and read from it. You may instruct the entity to leave. You must be firm but respectful in doing so and let the entity know that you believe in God and the entity is not welcome any longer. Tell them they need to cross over and find peace.

Keep us posted.

God Bless!

Sup. The ghost could have been dead family members or people that died on the land your house is on. The lights could be from the dead family member to indicate that they are in that room. The coldness in the room had to be a ghost that passed right through you! And the whole point of the story-what was under the table? I dunno. Could be anything, ghosts whatever.

Dear xLadyTastyx,

It could be as Shane pointed out poltergeist activity manifesting itself, by drawing upon your emotional and fearful energies. The more empowered and less fearful you are, the less other seen or unseen beings can feed off your energies. The best way to face a fear is to learn everything about yourself, acknowledge your fear, find out why you are afraid, ask for help, tell others about it and find out everything you can about your fear. The more a fear is put into the light and into awareness the less power it has over you. In the end, nobody can overcome your fear, but you. I appreciate you submitting your story here and for sharing your personal account with myself and others on this site. Blessings, Abby

Very interesting story Lady. You sound as if you are around the age when poltergiest activity usually begins to take place. I can be wrong and please if I am correct me. Usually poltergiest activity surrounds a teenage girl who may be experiencing undue stresses and such. It also usually only happens when that person is around and stops when they are not. Poltergiest activity is produced by the person around whom the activity surrounds. The mind is a very powerful thing and we are only just now beginning to understand how a portion of it works. Thanks for sharing your story with us.

Peace, Love, and Luck be with you.
