Before I even get into my story I strongly and firmly believe children are more sensitive to paranormal than an adult was. I think probably all children at some point had an experience and either forget it or suppress it. For me I remember I could never sleep on Halloween night. There was something about it, the energy perhaps, that prevented me from sleeping. Any way, here are a few experiences I remember having as a child. Hope you enjoy them.
One Halloween in particular I remember very vividly. I was laying in bed unable to sleep as I normally am on Halloween and my attention was drawn to my door. I happened to glance in the space above my door (it was probably about 3 feet of wall) and there was a shadow of a skeleton above my doorframe. There wasn't anything in my room and there was nothing on my ceiling that could explain the shadow or make it appear. I remember being frozen in fear and unable to get up or call for help, but after closing my eyes a few times the shadow eventually disappeared. I couldn't of been any older than 7 or 8, but still at 29 I still remember that image very vividly. It wasn't the full skeleton. The legs were cut off, so it was mostly the skull, rib area and pelvis. I don't know or think that played any significance, but I vividly remember seeing a skeleton unexplained on the wall.
I don't remember if this was the same night or later down the road, but in my bedroom I had a wooden highchair my grandfather made me for my dolls. I remember looking over at night and it took the shape of a black cat. Other things in my room would take forms of other things too as if I was in a scary version of Alice in Wonderland. The cat was black with long whiskers and had huge white eyes that seemed to see right through me. Just like the first episode I remember being unable to move just being frozen in shock... Or fear perhaps.
Lately I've had a lot of my childhood memories come back and many of them did involve something paranormal. I will share my experiences as I remember them and I always appreciate feedback.
