My first experience was when I was four or five before I started reading ghost stories and before I became a skeptic. I remember waking up from lighting outside, I would say it was around 4 or 5 in the morning, when I saw the floating head. The head was floating about 6 feet above the carpet in the middle of my room. The head was flaming yellow but I felt no heat or anything. The only thing that wasn't yellow was its black sunglasses. I was terrified I know it wasn't a dream because I feel things which you can't do in a dream. I hid under the covers but I would keep peeking at the head which was bouncing and evilly laughing but I heard no sound. I called my dad about 5 times and each time the head would disappear and my dad wouldn't believe me of course and told me I was dreaming. While some may dismiss it as a hallucination, a hallucination wouldn't have disappeared as soon as my dad walked in 5 times in a row. Furthermore there is nothing that could have caused that hallucination and I'm not crazy, whatever that thing was it was real and scary
Since that experience I started to forget about, it dismissing it as a dream since I never saw it again. I became a skeptic and refused to believe in the paranormal until two years ago. I was around 4 or 5 this time in the evening when I decided to go downstairs for something as I was walking past my mom's sewing room (looking down) which is next to my bedroom I looked into the sewing room and for less than a second I could have sworn I saw the ghost of a woman in a long white dress with flowers on it. I felt 3 things: I was an intruder, she was protecting the sewing room for my mom, and she didn't want to hurt me she just wanted me to leave. I may have dismissed it as a trick of the light until I felt a light jab on my hip and I looked down too see a pair of scissors on the floor which had not been their previously. At that point I realized that the paranormal was real and that the head was not a dream.
Thank you for reading this. While I would like to know what exactly I saw, I would also like to know why they were there. This house has no bad history nobody's died near it, it was a random bit of forest until our house was built 20 years ago. I don't need to do any thing about these spirits because neither have appeared since those encounters and only one appeared hostile but it couldn't hurt me. I just want to know how they're here and why. Thanks
The first with the Skull is very bizarre but you have said something about reading that memories change over time. I think what you are referring to is the study on memory recall. The study says that each time a memory is recalled it is changed slightly, to a point where the most recalled memories might become totally inaccurate.
I'm not sure how much weight the study carries or if it was ever followed up.
The second is no less strange, I'm confused that the lady would be warning you off a room that you hadn't even entered yet, and jabbing you with scissors was taking things a tad to far.
