I am telling a story that I did not experience, but that my husband has relayed to me. I have recently become very interested in ghost phenomenon, so I decided to post his story on this web site. It began in a small and not very old home (the home was probably build in the early 1980s) that was owned by my husband's late father. The home is located in northern Georgia at the foothills of the Appalachians. The home is located on a paved road, with a few other homes around, but the surrounding area consists of the Chattahoocee National Forest. My husband has relayed several strange happenings that he and others experienced when he was in his teens.
The first thing that my husband told me was that one night, about 15 years ago, he saw a woman dressed in Victorian period clothing walk across his back yard from the woods. He was outside at the time on the other end of the yard. The woman was a ghostly apparition, he is sure of it. She went to the back door then left the way she came.
He also told me of time when he had a friend to sleep over. While trying to go to sleep, his friend felt something touch his feet. This was pretty frightening for both of them. Both my husband and his friend have spoken of strange experiences in that same room, but have not went in to much detail.
One other thing that my husband shared with me was that of a mirror. He claims he saw strange things in the mirror. He came across to me like this was evil in nature and possibly some sort of gateway. My husband used to dabble (as a teen) in things that he should have left alone such as the occult or Satanism. I am not sure how heavily. I do know he is not involved anymore. I guess it was a teenage fad, as we are both Christians. Also my husband did not want to throw away the mirror, but we kept it for years, put away in an out building. I cannot remember what happened to it. I think it broke or got thrown away in one of our moves. In a way it just seems to have disappeared.
Another tidbit of information about this home is that after my father in law died in the home of ALS, we moved into the home. I never experienced anything strange, excepted maybe fear from what I have heard. But, my aunt came to visit us one day (she had not known about anything that I have just written) and she told my mother that she sensed something evil on the property. My aunt seems pretty reliable, she has always been into things like smudging her home, etc.
The reason why I write this story is just to get some opinion on it. I would like to know more about my husbands experiences. And although I don't want to go against my religion or experience anything evil, I would like to learn how to become more in tune with the other side and possibly have an experience.
Thank you for reading.
