I have had many ghost experiences in my life and have always considered myself to be a very spiritual person. With that being said, I have always been extremely cautious when it comes to the supernatural. I won't even let a ouija board or tarot cards near me. I just don't like to mess with things because I know that I draw them in and have worked too hard on building an astral shield to let them in. However, that doesn't mean that I don't encounter some weird things. In my experience, I know that spirits are drawn to those who can feel them...
I began attending a pretty old college last year as a vocal music major. This meant that I had and still have to spend hours in the basement of the theater practicing my repertoire. Since I've always been into ghost stories I decided to do some research about my school and turns out, the theater is a hot spot for activity between the founder of the building and a little girl haunting the space. The founder of the building has been known to show up in practice rooms and offer instruction to those practicing which even I have a hard time believing. This sprit I do not fear, however, the little girl really alarms me. Usually, if there is no reason for a child to haunt a building, it is my understanding that this is a demon taking the form of something less threatening.
One night, at around one in the morning, I was having a particularly difficult time practicing.
Before I get into what happened, I feel I must explain a few things. The tiny practice room itself has a small square window on the door which looks out into the center where an upright piano stands. Each room has a piano and a very old metal music stand that creeks when you try to adjust its height. The walls are very thin, even people just listening to a youtube video can be heard from the next room over. Since the rooms are in the basement, everything from above, in the theater, can be heard.
Once again, this story happened at around 1AM. I was the only one in the building.
As I began to practice, things started getting... Strange. I heard, very clearly, a man's voice in my ear, causing me to whip around. Now, I am a paranoid person, so I brushed this off and just continued to practice. Then, from the next room over, I heard one of the music stands slide up. I peaked my head out of the practice room to see that I was still alone in the basement. I began to suspect that some spirit was probably messing with me or trying to get my attention.
I heard doors opening and closing, whispers, footsteps and even a tap on the shoulder at one point. Finally, I had had enough. This was far from my first supernatural experience and so I thought I knew how to deal with this. I said aloud that if something was trying to contact me, I wouldn't be able to help them, and that since they were haunting the theater they must enjoy music. I told them they were more than welcome to listen to me practice.
I thinks that's what angered them.
The entire place went eerily silent and I felt that perhaps whatever had been bothering me had left. As I opened my mouth to continue singing, from the next room over, I heard the music stand CRASH to the ground! That was enough, I began packing my things and as I looked out of the small window in the door, I saw a girl's head from the eyes up, peering at me. She had long black hair and her eyes pierced the darkness. I actually screamed when I saw this and ran out of the basement as quickly as I possibly could.
The next day, I told my friend about my experience. She said I was crazy, but decided to write 'Ghosts and Dungeons' on the sign to the practice rooms.
I haven't had any other experiences in these practice rooms, however, I refuse to go down to the basement alone at night. There is something in that space. It may not be sinister, however, I don't want to be down there to find out if it is.
