I'm a first time submitter, long time reader. I've always been interested in the paranormal. As well as having many experience's of them. Which I'll post more about those later.
This one will be about how it was like to live with a light house (also known as, a person who can see, and speak to spirit's).
It was around the beginning of November 2008. My now ex husband and I had fallen on hard times, so our friend (the light house) let us come stay with her, and her husband, while we got back on our feet.
We already knew that she could see, and speak to spirits, (which I found interesting) before we moved in. I also knew that I was sensitive to them as well, but thankfully could not see them. I can feel when they're around me, and can tell if they're looking at me etc...
We'll call my friend (the light house) J. J had told me that there are multiple spirit's living in her house. Not that her house was haunted, but that they are attracted to her light. She told me how she had recently saw, and spoke to a woman in her kitchen, that was from the 1800's. The woman/spirit said that she was killed by a horse and carriage. J also had told me about a old soldier, that she had seen standing in a corner, in her room.
One evening, we were all sitting downstairs, in the living room, just talking to each other. While my little dog was standing near the end of the couch, watching something, like it was entering the room we were in. You could see her move her head slowly, as she followed whatever, as it seemed to get closer to us. J looked at me and said, "do you see her looking at it"? I was amazed how close the spirit seemed to get to us.
During the Holiday's, J's in-laws came to stay, and her mother In-law had mentioned that she had saw 2 spirit's (man and woman) standing near her door way, at night time, while she was laying in bed reading the night before. Their bedroom was across from ours. Which freaked me out that I might end up seeing them. Luckily I didn't!
When ever I would take a shower there, no matter the time of day, I would always feel someone peeking in (like they were tilting their head side ways to sneak a peek) watching me the whole time that I was washing. It felt very uncomfortable to the point of me dreading having to take a shower alone. I would constantly feel like I was being watched in that house. I could be standing in the kitchen, or the living room, and I'd feel someone walk into the room. They'd start by standing in the door way, and then I could feel them start to creep closer to me, to the point of where I'd start to freaked out, and run away.
My son, who was 2 years old at the time, would tell me that he kept seeing scary faces, and they would scare him, and make him cry. That's when I started to get mad. It's one thing to mess with me, but another to mess with my kid! So J told the spirits that they need to stop scaring him. My son said they looked like scary monster's.
Not to long after my son telling me that, he was up in our room one night playing, and we heard the door shut. Not long afterwards, he started screaming, and banging on the door, trying to get out the room. My ex husband and I, as well as J and her husband, ran up the stairs, and tried to open the door, which was now locked! We all started to freak out by that point, as my 2 year old son is screaming, and crying that he's scared, and can't open the door. J said it was a spirit who locked it (she could sense it), she said this has never happened before. She had a roommate before us, stay in that room for over a year, and not once ever had the door lock her in like that. After what seemed like forever of us trying to open the door (I should add that it was a weird door knob, and J did not have keys for it), my ex husband decided to get the ladder, and crawl through the window. Whenever he did, the door finally opened with no problem. But for safety reasons, we switched our door knob with another one that was on a closest door, and didn't have a lock on it. So we wouldn't have to worry about anything locking it again.
Not long before we moved out, me, my son, J and her husband, and one of their friends, was all sitting in the living room one night, not sure of the time, but it was around midnight or so (My ex husband wasn't there). But first, let me give a little lay out. Right above the living room, is our bedroom, and there's a wall to the living room, that has the stairs on the other side attached to it, which when you reach the bottom of the stairs, you can look right, and enter the living room, or turn left, with a quick other left, and go down a hallway, that goes through the kitchen, and at the end is the back door. Anyways, we were all talking, and all of a sudden we start to hear footsteps right above us, coming from my room. It sounded like they just started in the middle of my room. Then we hear it start to walk out of my room, and go down the stairs (it sounded just as clear as if someone would be walking around up stairs, and walk down stairs). As it reached the bottom, we all look over at the bottom of the stair case, and can hear it hit the landing (which is a wood floor), and start to walk down the hallway, and open and close the back door! We all just looked at each other like that just happened. J's friend didn't believe in paranormal stuff, but even he had to admit that there was no explanation for that.
Sorry to write so much. I'm sure I bounced around with this allot, but there was just a lot of stuff to remember from that long ago. Hopefully y'all enjoyed it! I do have other story's to share, if anyone wants to hear them?
Tales like this amaze me. They cause me to wonder all sorts of things: How prevalent are these entities? How are they generated? Why is there such a broad range of ways that different people experience them? It just leaves me more baffled than I was before.
Always enjoy hearing from you.
