I live in a large brick victorian home that was built in the 1800s. I, and my family have had numerous occasions where unexplainable things have happened. Here are my stories.
I had been in my room all alone, I was very young at this time! I was just standing there in front of my mirror with my fan on full blast. My bed was facing me. When I turned around, a penny spun out from underneath my bed. The penny somehow flew out from underneath the bed, and then just spun in the air for a few seconds as if someone flicked it out from underneath the bed, and then it finally fell on the floor right in front of where I was.
To this day, I have no idea how that could have happened. I tried to think of every possible explanation there could be, but there just isn't one. When it first happened I never said anything about it, but it did creep me out a lot, and I also had many questions.
If someone harmless was just simply letting me know they were there, why would they be under my bed? Should I be scared? Is this a normal thing that ghosts do to get your attention? I would really like some answers.
That was my first ever creepy experience in my home, and nothing ever happened for years after that. But then my older sister finally experienced something. She had been really sick at the time. She was nauseous with a fever and headache. She was laying down in her bed in her room, which is right across from mine. There is a hallway that separates all the rooms with a large staircase. She is able to see into the bathroom when she is in her bed because it is directly out in the hallway. She had seen my mom doing her makeup in the bathroom mirror, like she always does before doing yard work outside. Then she saw her walk downstairs. She said that she could have swore that my mom had already went downstairs, so confused, she went downstairs and then outside to see my mom. She had only seen her in the bathroom 2 minutes ago, but when she saw my mom outside, my mom was drenched in sweat considering it was almost 90 degrees outside and was continuing cleaning our pool. So she then asked my mom, "weren't you just in the bathroom?" My mom had a angry response like, "does it look like I was in the bathroom?" "I'm drenched in sweat". My mom had been in the same place in my backyard for almost 3 hours, so who exactly was in the bathroom?
There was also, obviously no possible way that my mom was inside 2 minutes ago, got outside that fast, and was drenched in sweat after just being inside the house. You could definitely see the fear in my sisters face because she went completely pale. Terrified, she told my mom that she had seen an identical image of her in the bathroom. I have heard of ghosts taking the appearance of other people, so was that what happened? We both know that whoever it was, it definitely was not my mom. Apparently though, whatever or whoever it was took the appearance of my mom and I have no idea why.
So these were 2 unexplainable situations that we again, just forgot about.
Here's my 3rd experience. My mom and dad have always tended to argue a lot. That day, that's exactly what they were doing. They were in the kitchen arguing away, then suddenly, a glass plate that had been on the same shelf the entire time we've lived in the house came flying off the shelf and busted on the ground in front of my parents. It was definitely the most violent thing that had happened, which was very scary. Now there's 3 very odd things that have already happened.
A very long time after this with nothing weird happening at all, my mom told me about an experience she encountered in our living room. She said that she saw a little girl while putting up Christmas decorations. She said she was in a white dress with a ribbon in her hair, but she only saw the back of her because she had been running away. Apparently, she seemed very afraid. Now, here is the story that scares me the most.
Almost 5 years ago now, my dad suffered a massive stroke before leaving for work. He was downstairs getting ready to leave, doing his usual things such as letting our dogs out and getting his coffee. After he got out of the hospital, he told us that when he was letting the dogs out before the stroke he thought my mom was hugging him from behind. But my mom had been upstairs the entire time. When we were in the hospital they said that my dad was very healthy, and that he was almost as healthy as a 20 year old. They also couldn't find anything that could have caused his stroke. Which to me at least, was rather odd. Especially since he thought he saw my mom before his stroke happened.
I definitely feel as if their is something in my house, and I have no idea whether it's something good or bad. I never feel safe in my room at night and constantly feel like something is looking at me. I usually just brush it off thinking I'm paranoid, which I probably am. But I definitely think I have every right to be. My room lights have also always flickered, and there have been times when I hear a thump under my bed or creaking noises on my floor when nobody is in my room, and my cat is laying sound asleep on my bed. Speaking of my cat, he also always acts like he sees things. He will constantly just stare at different areas of my room, and when I look to see what he's looking at there is never anything there. On a few occasions, he has even been so intent on getting something that he has tried climbing my wall. I would really love to hear what anyone reading this thinks.
My whole family has experienced something in this house, and I will continue knowing that it IS haunted. The only history that we know about it is that a woman died from a disease, and she did die in the house. As far as that, there's nothing else I know. But these are my REAL LIFE, COMPLETELY HONEST stories.
