Ghosts While In Bed


My name is Seymour, I used to see ghosts at my bed when I was around 7-9 years old. It always started when I had to sleep. As usual I went to my bed alone around 7-8pm. My mom or dad used to come say goodnight around 15 minutes later.

In those 15 minutes, when I lied in bed, I sometimes got a strange nervous tingling feeling as I'm being watched. When that happened I always looked through the window above my door watching the stairs (I had a high bed). And everytime when that happened, I saw a white/gray ghostly shadow coming upstairs and I hid under my blanket every time.

After a few minutes I decided to watch and then he was standing next to me (I was lying at his head-height) it has no face or anything, but I knew he was watching me. And he was just standing there. He always disappeared when my mom or dad came in the room after those 15 minutes.

The last experience I have had with him (or her) was when I got so scared of him every time, I told him to GO AWAY! After that he never came back.

In this period I have had sometimes the feeling of being watched through the window from outside the house. (I sleep on first floor so it couldn't be any normal person/animal). It always looking like shadows floating around the window outside, going up-right-down-left all the time.

About the bed ghost, when I was 18 I was thinking about him again, and didn't like that I told him to go away. Since that time I sometimes ask him to come back, and still do, but he never returned. Are there any things I can try to let him come back?

yes, since it did not scare my at first, but only after a long while, and he gone away when I told him, it looks like a friendly ghost. Just wonder why he always came when I was going to bed and just standing there.

Well this is a first. Folks normally looking to rid themselves of activity, vs inviting visitation. I guess you are curious now that you're older, and want a look see what it was?

when you describe "it" as white/gray ghostly shadow, come to think of it, I thought it might be like casper, the friendly ghost. Afterall it just appear in front of you and mean no harm. But yet I must agree with most of them here as to let it go. A one time experience is good enough to know about their existance.

thanks for comments. I think you guys are right about that. Never know what comes back. What about the shadows at the window? I had a scared feeling of those.

You may simply have lost your sensitivity with age, so I would not assume whatever this was disappeared for good. However, I agree with the other posters you should be very careful about inviting paranormal activity into your life. Be careful what you wish for...

I agree with Annabellee. Maybe it moved on, maybe it didn't but it's best just to let these things go.

While I am not sure how you would invite this entity to return, I would be hesitant to do so. Once you invite it to come back, it may not be so easy to get rid of should you want to.
