Weird Encounter With My Great-great-uncle


I traveled with my mom and my uncle to see my great-aunt and her two sons in their native country in Czech Republic on a vacation for two weeks. My uncle was going to come a few days after my mom and I.

So my mom and my cousins slept in bedrooms upstairs, my great-aunt slept in her room downstairs, and I slept in the living room on the sofa alone. My mom told me that my great-aunt's husband died over thirty years ago after they finished building their house.

Anyway I have a hard time falling asleep, especially in the pitch darkness so I was playing on my iPad to tire myself out. Then in the dark I heard a very stern voice say, "Dej to pryč" which means "put it away". It wasn't an angry or demonic voice. He sounded a little annoyed. I then felt a very cold sensation. The room did not shake and there weren't any loud bangs, just a man's voice. I knew it wasn't one of my cousins because they did not have that voice and I heard everyone snoring. So I immediately rushed up to my mom's bedroom and slept on the floor there until my uncle came a few days later. Honestly, I was too afraid to investigate or ask any questions. We slept on separate sofas in the loving room.

Though I never had another encounter, I always felt there was someone else in the living room. Could it have been my imagination or something beyond this world? I am not very spiritual, but I do believe that there is something waiting for us all after death. I do believe in ghosts, but I am still unsure if it was just my imagination, but nothing like that has ever happened before and since that strange night.

mlw596, that's actually funny. The older generations don't really understand the younger generations gadgets. He sounded like he was a little annoyed with you being on your ipad rather than being asleep as everyone was doing. In our elders home, they believe we all go to sleep at the same time and we all get up at the same time. Well at least that's how I was raised.

Hi mlw5796, welcome to YGS. But you had only one experience. It is better that you should investigate it further. You should ask about the history of the house, then explaining your experiences to others, you should request them to throw more light on it. Perhaps someone else might have had the same experience or one similar to yours. But with only one experience, it is difficult to comment further. I think it is harmless.

If you try to find out anything further, please post it.

Regards and respects to you.

I agree with SirenBelva,

Ask other family members. If it's your great-great uncle, maybe they saw him too:)

In any case, it seems like he was harmless. You might just have a gift for seeing these things:)

Peace to you ❤

It seams like your gg-uncle couldn't understand your fascination with your iPad instead of going to sleep! 😜

Good story, thanks for sharing.

I would describe your experience to your family members living in the house and ask them if they have experienced anything similar. If the experience scared you that much it was unlikely your imagination.
