One Of My Many Possible Experiences


It may not sound like much, but it is pretty weird for me. I have been living in a newly built house for around 4 years and it has 3 floors. About three stairs up the second flight I feel like someone is stood there. It is a silhouette of a person who is taller than me, and has a male build. I may have identified a name whilst messing around with some friends a couple of years ago, one of them claimed that she can see and talk to ghosts, but I am not entirely sure. She said that she could only see him when I was focused on him standing behind me, and that the 'image' was strongest when I was touching water. It sometimes feels like they are following me wherever I go, and they are always stood right behind me. I do not feel threatened by the presence, I actually feel safer, like I don't need to watch my back. I haven't tried to communicate with the presence or make it leave. I can't ask the friend that helped before as she is no longer attempting communication with the dead. I do not feel comfortable asking a professional as I am a teenager and I just want some answers. For example:

How can I be certain that it is not there to harm me?

What do you think it's true purpose is?

If it is trying to harm me, what do I do about it?

Is there anything else you may need to know, because I will tell you anything that may help with any answers that you can give me.

I thought it might be useful to tell you that other members of my family have had paranormal experiences too, especially on my fathers side.

Hey there! You don't have to worry about what you're facing as long as it is not physical. You can always show some courage and can always ignore it. If you don't feel safe with it, you can always seek help from your respective religious representatives. Stay strong. Thanks.

Very cool story. Yes they are harmless. I believe they are just watching over you. I've had bad spirits in an old house I lived in and there's a whole different feeling when you know they're there. You can sense the evil, or darkness about them. Since you're not afraid I really think it's a good spirit. Best of luck to you!

Dear Fantasy_Reality,

Thank you for sharing and seeking help.

I would like to offer a suggestion most respectfully and for your good only. Please do not take this otherwise.
These are the early stages of your life. These are your founding years. You would not like to depend on the hunches of people you don't know anything about, people like me, telling you what is and what is not.
Do understand that it would be really useful to rule out natural and normal causes before looking into the possibly paranormal.
The only way to rule out natural causes would be a thorough physical and psychiatric evaluation, which is necessary not only for you but for anybody who has such probable paranormal encounters. At least, one can rest assured that it isn't happening inside their head!
Thus I would request you to do the needful as soon as possible, and if you are a minor, you would need your parents' consent. So talk to your parents. They would surely understand.

Please do not be offended.


Demonicsheikh,k_surupa22 and all my other friends on YGS, I do not intend to offend anyone intentionally through any of my comments, especially not this one.
Yet if I have hurt any sentiments, I apologise.

hi there
They are harmless. They are called shadow people. You can actually see them at the corner of your vision. Dont focus on them as fear is their meal.
Just ignore them.
Hope I helped
