I like to think I'm quite open to the supernatural. I have experienced more spirits than most people my age and I have always been open to the unknown. I attribute it to my house.
I moved in there at the age of 6 (roughly). I encountered things that might seem tame compared to other stories - but for me it was terrifying.
It started with nightmares. Dreams that a presence was out to get me. My family assumed it was any other "monster under my bed" fear every kid has. It wasn't. I'm not saying it's anything like Enfield or Amityville, but creepy stuff.
I started hearing whispers in my room - angry whispers. I knew I wasn't dreaming - I know if something is a dream or not. The whispers said stuff like "be quiet" or "shut up and listen". Wasn't my parents. My mum never tells me to shut up now - let alone when I was 6. The seemingly tame haunting took a physical turn.
One of our guests at our house heard screaming from the bathroom one night. Things went missing and reappeared. Bottles of squash showed up in the middle of the kitchen floor. Doors started to be opened or flung shut. Typical cliche horror movie stuff.
Then one time, a Lego figure was lobbed at my eye from across the room. My stepdad (who was a sceptic before he moved in) was freaking out and my mum was shaking. I was crying so much. Phones started being knocked off shelves at 3:00 every morning. My scariest experience was when I was in the shower one time and two hands came through the curtain and shoved me. I pulled the curtain away and no one was there.
Things died down considerably after that. I sometimes saw shadows out of the corner of my eye and we have all heard noises at early hours of morning. A few times I've seen an apparition staring at me through a window coming home from school (my friend saw it too).
Other minor stuff has happened. We sometimes joke the ghost likes us now. My mum has since told me she believed the spirit conjures up negative energy because she and my stepdad used to frequently argue when we first moved in and the woman who lived here before us stabbed her husband (not in the flat).
I have experienced much more outside of that house (including my dad's also haunted house.) This story was authentic and feel free to ask any questions in the comments.
