This is my first time writing on here, so I thought I'd explain some experiences of my own, but first I need to tell you about my family. My grandmother, mother, and I are strong believers in the paranormal, and my grandmother is a clairvoyant who would often, when I was younger, take me to her psychic meetings. The experiences I'll describe happened in my old house, but in future tellings things have happened in my current home.
When I was about 7 years old, my mum's best friend's father had recently passed away. One night I went to bed and was almost asleep (facing the wall) when a voice in my ear said something I couldn't understand. I was paralysed for a moment before calling my mum. She had an idea that it might have been her best friend's father, and we sat down and mum called out "If there's anybody here, let us know." After about 10 seconds of silence the house phone rung, I picked it up and there was nobody on the other end. After that I refused to sleep facing the wall in fear of hearing this voice again. Please note that I am almost 16 and I still struggle attempting to face a wall.
Another experience - I was 8, and my mum was upstairs getting my baby brother to sleep. I was watching the television when I heard footsteps on the stairs. Thinking it was my mum I turned around, only to find a lady with no defined facial features dressed in white coming down the stairs. She did not see me, she merely walked down the stairs and walked through the porch door. Yet again I was frozen with fear and I didn't move until my mum finally came down.
Finally - my great grandmother's brother had died a few weeks earlier, when I was 8. He had moved to America before I was born and I had never met him or seen a picture of him. I was in bed, attempting to get to sleep, when I saw a movement in the mirror. I stared full on and in the reflection I saw a man staring straight ahead, dressed in black and with a rough beard. I froze and then got into my mum's bed. The next morning, I was explaining this to my great grandmother and described what the man looked like. She looked shocked before getting a photo of her brother and saying "was this the man?" It was.
I'd be interested to know your take on these happenings, and I will post more experiences soon.
