When I had my first ghost experience, I was around the age of 7 or 8. I woke up about 7 am at that time. So one regular morning, I woke up, and looked out of my bedroom which faced the hall. To my surprise, I saw a woman in what seemed like a long white dress run into the washroom. I closed my eyes, and tried to fall back to sleep, not as scared as I thought I would've been. About a week later, I was brushing my teeth, and I looked into the washroom mirror. Guess who I saw? The same woman. That was the last time I saw her.
One of the most well-known spirits in my house is a girl around 7-ish. I believe her name is Anne, although I'm not sure. It's just one of those feelings. The first time I saw her was when I was in grade 5. I used to wake up in the middle of the night and go into the living room where my mother slept. She stood up, to make room for me, and I saw a little girl peeking out from behind her. She stood there for a while, just staring at me before I blinked and she disappeared.
The next time I saw here was last year, in grade 8. I saw her walk from my sister's room (my old room) into the washroom. I don't know why, but I didn't seem as terrified of her as I thought I might be. I saw her again this year, walking from my bed to a bookshelf I have, and again walking around my bed. I haven't seen her lately. But, I told my mother, and she was quite surprised. She told me a few years back, she saw the same girl, in the same clothing I saw her in. A white dress, with a bonnet. She looked from around the 18th century. When my mom saw her, she was leaning over my bed, staring at me. The other time, this year, she peeked out of the kitchen door when my mom walked in, and dashed back quickly.
Another ghost is a soldier. I've only seen him a couple times. Once I was sitting at my computer, and I saw him clearly walk behind me, and when I looked where he was, he wasn't there anymore. Another time, he was walking by my bookshelf. I heard the shuffling and everything, and he walked behind me. I thought it was my dad, trying to see what I was doing, but I saw him instead.
A few times, I've seen a white figure. It usually just peeked at me, and hid shyly when I looked at it. I haven't seen it at all in a while.
One time, I was sitting at my computer, and I felt something tickle me, and touch my face, etc. It put it's hands over mine, like trying to hold them, and it touched my feet and everything. But whenever my dad came around, it would go away, until my dad left, when it would start again. And I'd feel an extremely friendly presence, but it would be overtaken by an evil feeling presence, then come back, and tickle me again, etc.
My Nona used to have a cat named Princess. I was really close to him. (Yes, him not her.) I was really sad when he died, though I was just in Senior Kindergarten. Just this year, for the first time, I think I saw his ghost. I saw a white cat walk into a room I was sitting in. Thinking it was her other white cat, Snowball, I looked over to pet him. When I looked at him, he continued walking for a second or two, then disappeared. Another time, I saw him jump behind a chair, which he always did, and when I looked for him, I couldn't find him.
Last Monday, (March 10, 2008) I got a Ouija Board from my grandmother because she knew I wanted one. My cousins wanted to try it out with me, so a few of us went into a supposedly haunted room in the basement, and I did a prayer, and a protection ceremony-type thing, then we tried to talk. The planchette didn't move, and my cousins were getting paranoid and scared. We forgot to say goodbye, because they were so freaked out, and just jetted out, even though nothing happened.
Ever since then, I've been seeing a figure walking around, usually around me, and I don't get a good feeling around it. I would like to know if anyone can tell me what to do? And I plan to use the Ouija Board in my house, but with experienced, safe people. What do you all think?
I forgot to add before, sometimes when I'm in bed, I'll feel like someone's on the other side of me, and I'll be way too terrified to even look that way, but at other times, there seems to be a friendly presence, and I can look the way I feel it.
Also, one time, I woke up at 3 am with a nosebleed, then at 6, with a nosebleed, then at 9, with the same thing. Throughout that day, when I'd walk in certain areas of my house, my head would throb, and my back would have sharp pains, but when I walked somewhere else, I'd be fine.
