I'll start by mentioning I am a 37 year old mother of 4 beautiful children, I had a relatively normal happy childhood! My first encounter with a spirit was at the tender age of 3. We had just moved to South Wales UK, from England. We had a lovely little terraced house that backed onto a railway. My older brother and sister were in school, and I would wave to them from the bedroom window at playtime.
My mum was busy making the beds in the bedroom next door and I was waving to my siblings as usual, when a man in suit jacket and hat just came through the wall. I felt no fear I just watched him walk through and went and told my mum there was a man in the bedroom, at which point she broke down in tears as she had seen the very same thing several times and thought she was having a breakdown! Pretty tame I know but my first encounter!
We moved home to a larger house the next year, things started to happen pretty quickly. I always felt I was being watched on the landing that I was never alone! I cannot say I was afraid at this point! Each evening I would be put to bed, my door was always left half open and every evening I would see a ghostly figure of an elderly lady in a nightgown on the landing always looking in on me. I never felt fear, it was always calm, who she was I will never know. My mum and dad put it down to children's imagination or a dream, but let me make it quite clear I was wide awake, as awake as I am now and she was there!
This continued for sometime, no problem, about 18 months later, she was joined by another spirit or whatever it was, only this one absolutely terrified me. I can't say what it was, but I knew it was bad. I did not know if it was male or female or what it looked like, but it had a gaping mouth, would speak to me and tell me bad things were going to happen... I can remember being frozen with fear, to terrified to move, and pulling the blankets up over my head and wishing this thing to leave me alone!
My friend stayed some nights on weekends, until I woke her in the night, as there were hooded figures knelt around the bed. She saw them too and was terrified, she never stayed again. Constantly my mum and dad put it down to nightmares, but they were not, it was as real as me standing here now!
This carried on for a few years, but I felt stronger, and one night while this thing was talking away, saying vile awful things about my mum and dad etc, telling me not to get out of bed, I jumped out of bed, rushed through this being, telling it to go away and got to my parents' bedroom, but no matter what I did the door would not open. Eventually the door flew open and my mum and dad shot up in the bed wondering what the hell was happening!
Anyway after this I continued to see the elderly lady in her nightgown well into my teens. And there continued to be a feeling of uneasiness, fear even on the stairs and landing. I would never vacuum the hallway at the bottom of the stairs, the stairs or the landing!
We moved home when I was 17 and things were just well normal, the horrible being that I had encountered so many times before never borthered me, though I did suffer night terrors occasionally!
Anyway years later, about 6 to be exact I had a child of my own and own house, and a friend of mine was visiting. My friend told me that the people who lived next door to my old house where so much had occurred, had done a moon light flight left all there belongings and everything as they said the house was haunted. The ironic part is their landing was adjoining to where my landing used to be as it was a terraced property. They said there was an elderly lady on the stairs and landing and she didn't want them there! Wouldn't let them up and down the stairs etc, they were terrified and felt very threatened, yet I never felt threatened by this lady! Or was this lady the other horrible being also that I had encountered?
Thoughts and opinions are much appreciated! Am I in touch with the spirits? Or do you think it was all my imagination, when I told my mother years later she was flabbergasted and totally believed what I had seen years before! I will post again soon, thanks!
