When I was a little girl, three years old to be exact, I fell asleep in my parents' room while watching a movie, I awoke some hours later, and if I remember correctly it was about 3 A.M. And the t.v had been turned off, as well as all the lights.
Then I thought I heard the door open, thinking it was my mom or cat (my dad was at work and all my siblings where asleep) I didn't say anything, I just sat up. I saw a flash of light and something appeared in front of the door and it gave of light, pure blinding light. I realized later that it was a woman.
She was tall with a content smile on her face, a beautiful gown long lose brownish-red hair, and bright eyes. She smiled at me, but being the little girl I was, I hid under the covers and shook with fear, I heard a sound, it sounded like someone speaking but I don't remember what she said (it's been about ten years).
Soon after I heard the bathroom door open and being a curious little thing I got up and went into the bathroom, following the Spirit.
When I reached the bathroom she stood in the center and looked back at me one more time and said something along the lines of "you're a special one" then she left my little confused mind and me alone.
I ran out of the bedroom and down the stairs as fast as I could to the living room where my mom was playing on the computer,
I told her something like:
"Mommy! Mommy! I saw a ghost! Mommy! I'm scared! The-the ghost... she-she... I saw a ghost!"
My mom just told me that I was probably dreaming and to go back to bed. I did as told only this time I made sure I had my teddy bear.
I still don't know who she was or what effect she had on my life but I'll tell you, that's one thing you never forget.
One thing I don't understand is "why?" Why did the beautiful spirit appear to me?
