This is my first story that I am writing on YGS, so I want to tell you guys some information about myself. I am a 20 year old female, born and raised in Lakewood California, and I have lived in the same house my whole life. I don't remember ever having any imaginary friends growing up or my mom ever mentioning that I did anything out of the ordinary "for a child" (not that I've really asked her to be honest). My first paranormal experience was when I was around 6-8yrs old and they have continued since. I not only experience paranormal things in my own house, but pretty much every where I go. I am NOT the only one that has experienced things in my house, everyone in my family has their own stories to tell.
On a side note, I have tried doing research on my house, but I've had no luck. The only thing I can reference is an engraving outside of my front doors step that reads "Bea & Tom Tow 5/31/1975" and right under "Darren Reinke"
There's not much to my first experience since I was rather young and I can't really remember anything else out of the ordinary. This is my only paranormal experience that I can replay in my head over and over again being that young in age (6-8yrs old). I woke up in the middle of the night to find myself staring at a big white ball (sort of like an orb) bouncing from wall to wall (left to right, my bed was in the middle). I remember being scared after a minute of watching it and hiding under my bed. Needless to say, I cannot sleep with the light off even until this day.
There's minor things that happen in my house such as lights turning off, things missing only to find them later that day or weeks later, someone walking up and down the hall in the middle of the night, seeing someone at the corner of your eye while you're watching T.V, things getting thrown a couple feet away (nothing dangerous), drinks moving on the table a couple of inches away, dark figures standing in front of you while you sleep, etc etc. Anyone that stays at my house (relatives) feels uncomfortable. The only reason I say minor is because these things happen quite frequently.
My scariest experience happened when I was around 13 years old. It was around 1-4pm when I got home with my mom and I decided to go straight into my room. I opened my door only to find myself face to face with a woman that had the angriest expression on her face. To my surprise I did not scream, I closed my eyes feeling the heaviest pressure on my chest ever. As I closed my eyes, I closed my door and ran over to my moms room (right behind me). She noticed that I had turned pale and had the most surprised look on my face. I told her what had happened and she went into my room and told her to leave me alone (not like she listened). I honestly thought I was imagining this woman, since I had never seen her, but have always felt a presence, until my 5 year old cousin confirmed it about 3 years ago (I was 17)
My uncle had brought over his 2 kids that LOVED to play in my room since I used to have all of my old build a bears laying around. All the adults were in the living room having a drink just sort of hanging out. I was in and out of my room that night just because I didn't want my cousins ruining anything, but I kind of got nosey with the adults for a while and they were left alone. My youngest cousin Andre (age 5) comes out with a weird look on his face and comes up to my mom and I asking "who's the lady with the purple dress in (my name) 's room?" We both looked at each other and asked him what he was talking about. Andre again comes with the same question, but this time he adds the angry lady with the purple dress. I swear I did not sleep in my room that night.
I'll be sure to write some more of my experiences soon. Any comments or questions are welcome.
