I have had many occurrences dating back to when I was 5 years old. For this story I will focus on my experiences from a house I lived in, in Ringgold GA where I could swear to this day was haunted. At 5 I started having these reoccurring dreams (I know this isn't the place for dreams but I'm convinced they were influenced by a dark entity) where I am in bed in my room, however, I am unable to move. Directly in front of me is a dark, shadow like figure with no face walking toward me. I have heard of similar experiences with sleep paralysis but that doesn't explain the next part. If I didn't wake up before the shadow reached me, then my room would disappear and next thing I knew I was in this dark place surrounded by what I could only describe as people standing close together on fire with what look like swords drawn. I could hear high pitched screaming in the background. I would always wake up terrified and screaming, as would be normal for a child that age. As I got older that dream became less frequent and I learned to wake myself up before the shadow reached me. We moved at age 11 and I had it one more time while I was at my grandparent's house, but in the dream I was back in my bed at the Ringgold house.
The next occurrence at the Ringgold house that I remember was when I was age 9. We always kept box fan running in the hallway at night time. One night I woke up to hearing this really loud thumping noise in the hallway. It woke up my parents as well as we all went into the hallway to see this box fan bouncing around on its own. My dad unplugged the box fan and one of the plastic fan blades was completely broken off. The fan blades were all one piece and there was nothing anywhere close to the fan to obstruct it. The fan guards were intact on both sides. We had no indoor pets that could have interfered with it. Just a strange phenomenon we could not explain.
The last occurrence that I know of at that house was told to me by my parent's only a couple of years ago but I was about 9 years old when this occurred. Both my parents were asleep one night and all of a sudden my mom was woken up to my dad fighting an invisible force in his sleep. Dad did not sleep walk or move at all in his sleep and to my knowledge never has since then. When Dad woke up that night it felt like something had a hold of his leg, but neither he, nor my mom could see anything.
I have had other occurrences more recent that I will post later, but these were by far the most unsettling.
