My name is Courtenay and I will be 18 years old next month. I have been no stranger to ghosts. I have seen them and heard them from being very young.
My first experience was at my Granddad's house. My Grandma had died not long before this event. We were on the upstairs landing running around and all of a sudden, I bolted to one of the windows and started shouting 'Grandma Grandma' out on to the drive.
When I was in Year 3, we went on a school trip to this old Tudor House. We had just been in one room upstairs which we were going out of and I remember being rooted to the spot. I had my back to the window and I was facing the bed in the room. I saw the other people in my class walking down the stairs. I felt a breeze behind me (The windows weren't open and there was no draft whatsoever in the house) and as I could move again, I spun round to find this white mist in the air as if a ghost had just shot past me.
At the same location years later, I was looking at the souvenirs and I felt somebody tap me on the back. It felt like a man. I turned around but there was nobody there.
I was at our caravan in Wales quite a few years ago and we had just been to the beach which is just off the camp site. We were walking back over this grassy hill and I felt this impulse to look to my left so I did and this is the strangest experience I have ever had. I saw this black shadow figure that was a woman who looked like a witch. She had her arms straight out in front of her and she was running but her feet were off the ground and she ran in to these public toilets and disappeared, then a flash followed.
I was at my Granddad's house and he was trying to get my cousin's moped started. I was stood in the doorway watching and all of a sudden I saw my granddad start the moped, take off with it and then fall off and roll. I then came out of this vision and what I just saw played out right in front of me.
I was in another old house a few years back and I noticed the ropes swinging. I was in the cafe and I became rooted to the spot facing one door and two at either side of me. I then heard children laughing but there was no children around.
I have also thought of something to say to my parents and then immediately after I think, they say exactly what I thought. This has happened a lot.
I've also heard people calling my name and family members who are alive talking or calling my name but they are not with me at those times.
I was also home alone the other day and I was making a cup of tea and I heard somebody whistle and I spun around very fast but of course I was alone and I hadn't turned the TV on yet so it couldn't have been that.
I also had a dream come true once. We were going to this shopping centre on the bus the next day but we didn't know the stand the bus we needed to catch was. I dreamt that night of the stand being H and that I had my cousin's pram and we started to run to the stand. The next day, the stand was H and I was wearing the same clothes as in my dream and everything happened the same.
So, what I am trying to say is, why do ghosts seem to want to communicate with me? Why do I see a lot of them?
