My short story is a clear memory I have from my childhood that will stick with me for life. I'm 24 now. This happened when I was around 6, but I can remember the incident like it was yesterday.
I'm a logical thinker so life after death is hard for me to rap my head around and would be a complete skeptic if not for my own encounters with the paranormal.
Like I said I was a 6 year old innocent boy that had no clue about ghosts or the paranormal when I had my first experience. I'll start off by saying I grew up in an old two story Victorian style house next to the beach in a town called Kinghorn in Fife Scotland with my mum and younger brother and had an amazing childhood at the beach, with my auntie and two cousins living above us in the two story house.
The encounter I had was brief but very strange. My house had a large living room with a long hallway leading to the dining room which lead on to the kitchen. In the long hallway between the living room, dining room was the bathroom.
It was during the day, not sure what time. Me, my brother Jordan and two cousins David and Sammi were playing in the dining room whilst my mum and auntie were chatting in the living room. I, as I normally did, went to go for a number two in the bathroom in the hallway between the two rooms. Being a child I never used to shut the door or even bother turning the light on. As I sat there doing my business a mass around the size of a person floated past the door extremely quick. As it did, the light came on with the string light switch going ping and left swinging around hitting off the wall.
The thing did not have human shape. It was more of a human sized mass and the way I've always described it was like a fuzzy static tornado
Zoomed past the door and turned the light on for me. I say tornado because of the way the static was moving fuzzy and swirling. After it happened I remember not reacting at all and carried on playing.
I sort of repressed the memory until a few years later when we had moved out and my mum and stepdad were talking about ghostly encounters in that house.
It wasn't scary at all, probably because I was so young. I am interested to know if anyone has a theory on the difference between static entities/people, shadow entities/people and just your normal white ghosts?
I do not think this thing was malevolent in anyway but in fact was trying to help me. I've also read a lot about demons and how they deceive people. I'm not sure what to think about my experience, any thoughts?
Thanks for reading
