Growing up I've always heard stories of others experiences with the paranormal and I've always been fascinated by them, wishing that I could have been there or had an experience of my own.
For example after my aunt passed away my uncle would experience odd occurrences happen in the house. Such as the drapes in the living room that he kept closed, when he walked back into the room they would be open and tied to the side the way my aunt used to have them open. Or lights would turn on that he knew were not on when he left the room especially the bedroom light. These were not one time occurrences as this would happen often. Another time my brother was over painting my uncle's house he was in one of the bedrooms and the statue of Mary Magdalene that was on the dresser next to family pictures there were tears coming from the statues face. When my brother saw this he wiped the tears with his thumb and it happened again.
My first paranormal experience happened one day after supper I was in the living room watching TV on the main floor and I was remembering these stories that my uncle would tell us. I don't know why but suddenly I asked Grandpa, "if you're here please give me a sign". Seconds after I said that two floors up in my bedroom I herd my alarm clock going off. So I ran upstairs and looked at my alarm clock it was not set to go off at 6:30 pm. Some people might think its a coincidence but I know it wasn't and I truly believe that my grandfather was there and he was giving me the sign of his presence that I had asked for.
