I have already submitted a story about strange occurrences that have happened to me in my house. To start off I have noticed a pattern in many of my experiences linking both me and my grandmother. Like when her and I dreamed of my grandfather her husband who died holding a baby boy. The next day my aunt calls to tell us that she is pregnant. If that isn't weird I found out later that she was expecting a boy. I'm not saying that my grandma or I am psychic or anything but I think my grandpa was trying to communicate with us about the happy news.
This one experience is when I had to help bring boxes of random junk down to the basement with my grandmother. The light switch is on the out side of the door. So my grandmother went in first as I turned on the light. There are two switches for each light. My grandmother was holding the door open for me and I noticed the light on the left was not turning on. No matter how many times I flicked the switch it did not turn on. We went in anyway because the light on the right was still working. As I walked in I shut the door behind me. Then I got a cold chill and heard my name whispered in my ear. It sounded like a young female voice. I looked around to see if anybody was next to me but there wasn't anyone but my grandma who was about five feet in front of me. I asked her if she had just said my name and she said no. I told her what had happened and she said that it was funny.
I asked her why she said that and she told me that she was sleeping in her bedroom and heard her name being called in the living room which is right next to her bedroom. She went to see who it was and nobody was there and she said it sounded like her mother but younger. I have never met my great grandmother before because she had died before I was born (for the record this great grandmother is my mothers grandmother my fathers grandmother is the one I talked about in my previous story). Also we had to bring other boxes in the basement and both light worked. I just thought it was strange.
Anyway about a week later I was sitting in my living room when the light above me flickered and then went out completely. I didn't mind though because there are three other small lights in the room. I continued reading, watching T.V., etc. And slowly drifted off into sleep. I had a horrible dream I can't for the life of me remember almost any of it but I remember being terrified. I was also afraid of waking up because I had the feeling that something bad was going to happen. I woke up with a burning sensation on my right arm. I looked on my arm and sure enough there were two long scratches right there. (I don't like long nails so I cut them to the point where there is no white part of the nail left, so it could not have been my nails scratching myself. I do have a dog but he was outside out side all day and I was the only one home to let him in so it could not have been him).
I know the lights going off could just be an electrical problem but I think its weird that the lights go out at just the time before what I consider paranormal happens. Does anyone think that it is just a dream or does it mean something more? Comments are appreciated! Thank you!
