I know that it has been a while since my last story but I would like to share to all of you some experiences that started my interest in the paranormal. I have a decent memory of these events but I will publish more stories later on.
I moved into my new home around 12/18/1998 I was 7yrs old and about to turn 8 in 2 months when we had moved in I did not have any prior experience with the paranormal except stories that my mother Redwolf would tell me.
I was a rather shy child with many problems with night terrors and had started to notice little things within the home since it was hard for me to go to sleep without my stuffed animals. Anyway at night I would hear things like footsteps within my attic that would sound like they where scraping against the wood. They where not very loud and were almost always above me (I slept on the top bunk of the bed) and I know that I was not scraping the ceiling since my legs would be tucked in the blankets so I would not make myself fall out of my bed which happened a lot because my night terrors would make me toss and turn. My parents would claim that the noises within the ceiling were caused by the house settling but I knew that it was not the cause because it would happen every night in the same location.
The year of 2000, was my first year of 3rd grade. I was held back in 1st grade because I have CAPD. For those who do not know what CADP is it is Central Auditory Processing Disorder it causes a person to not hear very well when in a room or within a crowd and makes it impossible to concentrate on anything. One morning I was getting ready to go to my bus stop by myself since my older siblings and my parents were not home. While I was locking up the house and about to leave I saw an apparition standing halfway in my parents bedroom with its face towards me. The spirit did not have any facial features but had a human form. The spirit was about 5 foot tall and was solid but completely white. Of course I was scared but I went to make sure that no one was in my parents bed room. There was no one there so I ran out of the house closing the locked front door behind myself. I told my mother what I had seen when I got home and by the description of the spirit that I told my mother, she told me that it was one of my family members watching over me. After that I did not see him again.
During the year that Ghost Hunters had started I became interested with the paranormal. In 2005 or so, my friend and I started to take our bikes and ride around our neighborhood mostly to this stream that is on a dead end street that is an equal distance from our homes. The stream is on state park land so it is open to the public but the woods that the stream runs through is used by gang members, so we would always stay on our bikes just in case we had to get out the area in a fast pace. One day during the spring of 06 my friend Joe and I went to the stream to look for turtles and while searching for them I had a feeling to look up in the trees and when I did I could see this small creature on one of the branches. It was about the size of a large owl but had piercing red eyes. My friend Joe noticed the scared expression on my face and looked to where I was looking and saw the same thing. We both stated that it was watching us and that we better leave. After we had said that the creature moved a little and we decided to leave because we both felt uneasy. As we were leaving I glanced back at the creature and it was still there but then faded away once it had noticed that I was no longer on the property. To this day I am still unsure what the creature was.
During the summer of 05, my friend and I went to an old engineering building that was part of the psychiatric center in my town. The building was very large and had two large smoke stacks on it. Joe and I found a way into the building through an old stair case on the back of the building that lead to a cat walk and after walking down the cat walk, there was a hole in the cat walk in front of the door. We decided to jump over the gap into the door to explore the building. I was the first to go into the building. It was dark but illuminated by the light coming through the windows. I did not travel far from the door because my friend was still trying to get in but was too afraid to jump the gap, which was a good thing because I did not stay long inside the room. While inside I started to hear what sounded like footsteps in a partially illuminated hallway. At first I thought that it was a security guard but I could not see anyone walking towards me. After I called out to see if the person would respond I started to hear a low growl that grew louder and along with the growling their was a louder sound of what sounded like nails on a chalkboard but against metal. I became very frightened and told my friend Joe to stop trying to get in and help me out. Once I left the noise stopped and we got the heck out of there, mostly due to me being so scared. This entity to me seemed to be very violent so I did not feel that it would have been wise to go back ever again, which I do not have to worry about since all of the psychiatric building except for the buildings being used by the college in that area have been torn down.
During the summer of 07, I was watching Ghost Hunters with my mother and when we were interrupted by my sister walking in our house with an attitude and she had started fighting with my mother within the entrance of our house. During their fight I had turned around to tell my sister to stop fighting with my mother, when I noticed something above their heads that looked like a ball of light. Both my sister and mother did not notice the light because their argument was getting heated and as their argument grew the ball of light morphed into a face that looked down on them as to be interested with the fight. After I told them to look up at the face, the entity disappeared. Looking back now I think that it was the same male spirit that I encountered in my previous story because it looked like it was being manifested from their rage.
I have also have had encounters within the year of 07, with the children spirits within my home such as hearing objects being moved in my room that I later found to be the drawers of my desk being opened and closed like someone was searching for something to play with. I had also heard on many occasions my name being called out by a little girl. My family members have also had their names called out by her as well.
I am open to any questions or suggestions and thank you all for reading my story.
