There have always been "ghosts" around my family. I even have one that follows me house to house and showers at 2 am. This has freaked more than one roommate out.
I had an interesting experience in my new home and this one even shook me. The 2nd night I slept in my new place, I had a dream. The dream was personal and it meant something to me. I was at a cross roads in my life and I didn't know what direction to go. I started to feel a pressure on my ankle and it woke me up. At the foot of my bed there was a dark shape of a man and he had a hold of my ankle. The more I looked at him the more detail I saw. He had a blue hue around him and his eyes were very intense and he held my gaze. I wasn't afraid. He didn't mean me any harm. He just said "this is the only way I can tell you what I know". He had brought me the dream to convey a message. I felt the pressure long after he left. I just laid there trying to grasp what he meant.
It was the only time I saw him. I hear men talking all through my house (no men live here). I hear people walking in the attic when I am home alone, and my faithful friend still showers at 2am. But the man who delivered a very important message that I missed the full meaning of until I wrote this down has not been back.
Has anyone else experienced something like this? If so what was it? I don't know that this was an actual ghost story per se but I have never experienced anything like it and am not sure what to call it. It was very real. My ankle was tender the next morning but not bruised so I know it was real.
