I have previously submitted 2 stories which both involved (ghostly) meetings with and messages from my sister who died. Well, now I think my Nan (paternal grandma) is also keeping an eye on me. I'll tell you what has happened and I would like to hear if you agree with me.
In October 2013 sadly my Grandad passed away. He had been living on his own in the house he shared with my Nan since my Dad was a baby. Sadly my Nan had already passed away (I think it was around 2002).
After my Grandad's funeral we had our whole family around at their house for the wake. It was at this time that my aunt (D) and uncle (A) (who had purchased the house from my Grandad prior to his death) offered us grandchildren anything we wanted that we could take as a keepsake of our Nan and Grandad. I chose to take home a baby doll that I used to play with when I was young. I believe this doll also used to belong to my Dad's sister (R) who has also passed away. I don't believe it could of been my Nan's doll as it was too modern (date approx. 1960s). Well anyway, I took home the baby doll, set it in pride of place in my bedroom so I could remember my Grandparents every time I saw it.
Everything seemed normal at first, but then I kept having dreams about my aunt (R) so I thought maybe the doll had brought her spirit along with it. As I have previously seen the ghost of my dead sister, I was afraid that I was going to see another family member ghost so I prayed out loud and then asked out loud that if it is a family member PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE do not let me see you. To date, I have not seen any more ghost relatives. BUT this is what has happened.
Incident 1 (May 2014) - I was busy on a Sunday doing the weekly housework and I forgot that I had left clothes in the tumble drier which was outside in the garage. So I run out to the garage (it was raining), grabbed the washing out and run back indoors with it. I walked into my bedroom to dump the washing on the bed but as I walked into my bedroom, I looked up at myself in the double full length mirror and I swear it was my Nan standing in the mirror looking at me smiling. I looked for a good few minutes and nothing changed, only when I left the room and came back in was it my own reflection again. I told my husband and my Dad of this and they both said that maybe I saw bits of my Nan in my own reflection (ie: family resemblance) but that is not what I saw. And when I have shown pictures of my Nan to others, no-one thinks I look anything like her (I am the spitting image of my Mum).
Anyway, I brushed this off as my mind playing tricks on me as everyone seemed to think. But to be on the safe side I carried out Rook's cleansing ritual.
Incident 2 (Jan 2015) - I was laying in bed trying to go to sleep approx 11PM when I saw a red dot (like a laser dot) floating around in my room. (Bear in mind I have blackout curtains and the only lights in my room were the small LED lights on my TV). This weirded me out so much I had to get up and put the light on before I could go back to sleep.
After this I became constantly aware of someone/thing watching me when I lay in bed of a night. Maybe this was my imagination running riot after thinking about previous incidents or maybe not. Either way I began talking out loud to any spirits watching to please stay hidden and not to hurt me. So far so good.
Incident 3 (March 2015) - I began hearing footsteps walking around in my hallway of an evening (different sounds to usual) and sounds of what sounded like someone breathing after climbing 100 steps (I live in a bungalow) whilst trying to sleep. (Note, me and my husband usually sleep in separate rooms due to his snoring noises but I know it wasn't him). I read through this website and found many people hear these sort of noises too, so maybe I was not imagining them?
Incident 4 (Last week May 6, 2015) - I have recently changed my bedcovers over to summer covers as winter covers get too hot lately. On a few nights (May 3/4/5th) I woke up in the night and had to put my dressing gown on and go back to bed because I was waking up totally frozen. I mean I felt freezing but the air was fine so probably just the temperature. Anyway on the night of the 6th May I didn't have to get up and put my dressing gown on as I didn't wake up in the night, BUT when I woke up my dressing gown (which is usually on the back of my bedroom door) was spread over the top of my covers like an extra blanket. I do not remember getting up to do this. My husband says he never did it. Straightaway I thought of my Nan, thinking she knew I kept getting cold and she put the gown over me so stop me waking up again.
I totally did Rook's cleansing ritual again the next day just to make sure nothing unwanted was around. I like to think it was my Nan, although I still don't want to see any more ghosts. I just hope I don't end up being a ghostly visitor to my niece if this runs in the family.
So all, what do you think? Is my mind playing tricks or have I had another visit?
Hope you like my story.
