My name is Isabelle and I am fifteen. I hope no one thinks that these incidents not real. I am not the sort of person to jump to conclusions and have only really thought about the paranormal these past few months after things in my house are getting more strange.
I moved into my house September 2010. In summer 2011 I first started noticing strange things. Now, most people will think what I am about to say is probably animals, I have not ruled that out but am adding it anyway.
I started hearing scratching in my wall. Usually a specific wall, though not always. On the other side of the wall is my bathroom which is always empty when it happens. I do live in the attic, so at first I was very open to it simply being an animal, however it got worse. My wall is not very thick, but the scratching and banging got very loud. It made it sound like a very big animal. It has started to wake me up very early morning and can go on for up to an hour. My granddad has checked inside the wall and there is no sign of animals. This is what has made me think of the paranormal. I also hear things moving on my chest of drawers. This scares me more as it is always in the dark and when I am trying to sleep. I thought it was the pipes at first and did not want to jump to conclusions, but I have woken up to things moved and even on the floor! However that is my least weird experience!
As I said, recently things have been a lot worse. Over the past few months I have started to see black orbs in the corner of my eyes, as well as shining ones in my bathroom once. This is always in my room, though I am not downstairs much anyway. I don't really mind. Though it is a mild annoyance, it never scares me. However, more recently within the past couple of months things are worse.
Just to explain, when I dry my hair in the morning I can see my bedroom door in the corner of my eye and in a mirror. Now, quite a few times I have seen my bedroom door open and a black figure walk in. To me it seems normal as my grandma usually wears dark clothes and with dark hair. I assume it is her, but I turn to say hello and my door is closed and there is nobody there. I have started looking in the mirror instead and sometimes my door opens in the mirror too. I have also had this happen when I am watching TV. I would say overall, I've experienced this a lot, about twenty times in the past six months!
All of this has really startled me quite a bit. Though for me this next story is the most startling. (Again, to me it is more annoying than anything, as there has been no malicious actions.) I had put my hair straighteners on and had just went to brush my teeth. I came back to my room, walked to the end of my bed (which was not near enough my straighteners to have moved them) and watched them move. They turned over, and the cable also moved as if someone was using both hands. It is not so much the movements itself that scared me but the sheer force it would have taken to do as my extension cord has many other plugs and I can hardly lift it.
I would not say I am very scared. I just really would like some advice if anyone has any, or wants to talk about other paranormal things:) Thanks for reading!
