Both my partner and myself have been living in a small property in Western Australia for about a year now. The house was built in the 1970s, but other then that we haven't looked into any details of previous owners.
This happened one night about 3 months after we first moved in. I came home from work at about 11.30, had late shift at work as I work as a carer. Anyway when I got home my partner was asleep in our room, so I thought I'd watch TV on the couch in the lounge room.
The couch I was laying on is against the wall with the TV cabinet in front on the opposite wall. The hallway door is on the right hand side of the TV which leads to our bedroom, etc.
So I fell asleep shortly after laying down. When I woke up again it was early morning around 2.30. As soon as I woke up to hearing footsteps, I had assumed it was my partner but at the same time I had this horrible feeling of being watched, so naturally I looked around. There was a woman standing just outside the hallway, she wasn't doing anything just standing there. I couldn't make out a face but it definitely was a woman, she was slender and had a long dress. It seemed like forever she stood there but I was frozen in shock. I looked away momentarily and when I looked back she was gone.
This was the first time in a few years that I had a paranormal experience, so afterwards I was not tired at all. I watched TV for probably about another hour and thought I had better go to sleep.
I always leave the toilet light on at night so I can see if I wake up during the night so after turning everything off except the light, I walked into our room where I found my partner asleep on his back, which he never does. He always sleeps on his side so I thought that was strange enough.
After being in the room for a second, I heard a woman's voice. I couldn't make out what she was saying, but just after it had started I saw my partner's mouth moving and speaking as if he was the one talking but it was not his voice! He has a very masculine voice which I would never mistake for a woman's so it was definitely not him talking in his sleep. She only said a sentence or two through him which I never made out what she was saying. I must have been to scared to even process any words so I just stood there in shock again. But it was the most frightening thing I have ever experienced! She sounded middle aged, although I couldn't understand what she had said I got this heavy, sad feeling from her presence and voice. I don't know if it was evil but it was certainly not a happy ghost.
Also in the morning I told my partner what happened and he shrugged it off as my imagination as he doesn't believe in such things, but I know this was supernatural. I woke up to a very different voice to what I heard that night.
Nothing much has happened since except the occasional hearing footsteps, but she has never manifested her voice into my partner since.
I have tried researching about ghosts talking through people but have found nothing. It would be great if someone could give me some insight into what this could have been because I think about it a lot and I'm always scared at night because I think she might come back. Please comment and let me know what you think this woman was or why she talked through my partner!
