This is also happened to me at my house. Growing up, I used to see men and women standing near me and they never talks or disappears too quickly. Feeling like invisible arms touching me, faint voices calling my name or other strange languages. Soldiers marching wearing beautiful uniforms (later I discovered those uniforms belong to colonial era). I saw many things while growing up. But none of them stayed very long time the man in black.
While I lived at my parents' house, I always felt like I was being watched. That feeling followed me like a shadow. But I tried my best to ignore that feeling because I spent most of the time alone in the house. I told to myself I am imaging things because I was alone. After all, it is natural to feel little bit of fear for a kid lives alone in a big house.
After I moved to my own house, things were great for a while. It was few months later I felt like I was being watched. Sometimes at night or during the day I can feel someone's hand touching me. That really creep me out. I can feel every finger of that hand or both hands slowly touching my legs or shoulders and slowly moves up. Imagine you sitting in a chair and then suddenly you feel someone touching your legs or holding your shoulders when you know you are the only one in the house. I changed the place I was at when I felt it. Or sometimes I when I shout "stop and leave me alone" it stopped. The touch feels so cold you can guess how long the fingers or their size. I have no idea why I haven't run out of the house screaming.
While this going on, I felt like I was being watched. One day I was at home watching a movie, I felt like someone is watching me. So I turned my head to look and saw something black move very fast to a corner of the wall and disappears. I thought my mind playing some tricks so I did not mind it much. This happened few more times for not to ignore it anymore. But every time I turned to look it moves so fast and disappears. Only thing I was able to see was someone, I strongly felt like it was a guy in black.
Back then I did not know anything about supernatural or never heard about a black figure. That was the time I thought we can see ghost only at midnight. But this thing I can see even day and also at night. Sometimes when I felt like I am being watched, I stay still and watch from the corners of my eyes for him and see standing few feets away a figure, wearing a black suit and a hat like a magicians do. Everything is in black color. In fact, it was like deepest shade of black color I ever saw. He just stand and watching me. I had no idea what to do. So I just pretend to do something just to not look at him or get mind out of it.
Sometimes when I was watching him, he just turns and leaves. I watch him climb the stairs and disappear from the view. Soon after, I can hear someone walking upstairs. Few times I checked there was nobody. After that I didn't bother to look. I also saw a cat like animal few times. It was also black but unlike other cats, this one was bigger in size and it got really scary red eyes. I saw it walking pass me few times like it lives there. I am a dog lover. In my house I don't have any cats. Only I and my faithful German Shepherd dog and he hate cats.
Then one day I was going to ground floor of my house and as I got closer to stairs I saw a figure in white, wearing a dress coming up the stairs. I saw like stuck there watching it as she comes closer. Her skin was pale and her shoulder length hair fell loosely. She too walks around the house as she owns it. She mostly stayed in the living room.
But I was getting desperate. Till then I thought ghost are suppose to be black and white pale figures and only haunt in midnight. But here I am watching a black figure, a white lady and a black cat with red eyes, not only at night but during day too. It also got me thinking about the people I saw growing up and realized I have been seen ghosts as long as I can remember.
So I went to few different people are experts on paranormal and did what they told me to do to get rid of these haunting. It only worked for few days. So I went around until I met this amazing guy, he can tell me about things only I knew and my secrets just the moment I saw him. He even told me about the trouble I am having at my house even before I told him anything. That moment I knew this is the guy who can help me.
He told me I have the ability to see ghosts. If I meditate and stayed as a vegetarian my ability will improve. He also helped me to do a cleansing (very similar to Rooks' I read in his profile when I joined this site years later). And advise me to do it again at least once a year. According to him there is no permanent solution for this and even best protection wear off after sometime. Also told me I will know when to do a cleansing again. If I did the cleansing correctly, he told me I will see a dream about it.
True to his words, that night I did saw a dream. In the dream I was walking around the house with my uncle (he is the one helped me to find this expert) looking for something. Dream was so clear and comforting. I remember clear blue sky; every tree is full of flowers and fruits. I remember walking around every inch of property and finally saying to my uncle everything is safe and we can go.
Next morning when I told him what I saw, he just smiles and said the cleansing is complete. But he wasn't finished. He asked me to meditate for a bit thinking about and asking the god to show what is wrong happened in my house. While I was meditating I saw few images of my front gate and four corners of my land. I told what I saw and told to go home and dig the places I saw.
I dig the places and found small plastic boxes. Inside there was small pieces of copper plates with writings in them. It is difficult to read them. Language was something I never saw before and most of it covered in strange symbols. My gut feeling was someone has done some kind of witchcraft in my land. There is people do kind of this stuff. They can bind spirits to some places and many other things. Locals call a group of people "Rodi" they are considered lower class people back in old times. They are experts in witchcraft and local people fears even to enter their villages. I also have been to two villages without knowing and to this day those two places remains as the creepiest place I visited. It was like a ghost town.
Anyway after I discovered those boxes I dump them deep inside the forest behind my house, under really big old tree. Under the tree I saw few small size statues of Buddha and different kind of Hindu gods. Locals dump damaged or a cursed item under big trees. People live there knows not to touch them. Even the kids were advised not to touch them.
After that inside my property, I didn't saw the man in black or the woman in white. No sounds inside house or anything creepy. After ten months passed after the first cleansing, I began to hear the fain voices again. So I did the cleansing again and been doing that for every ten months. So far, inside the house, everything is normal.
