I Saw Someone in my Parent's Room


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?

I think she was a very kind person in life, like any mom, aunt, older sister - just checking in on a very young one - the fact that you saw her made her say what she said and without a fuss she was gone...

i have a strong feeling that she was an angel, it sounds like she came just for you and you've never seen her before so it kind of makes sense, nice story 😁

Hello Candiegirl,
I, too, wonder about your recollection of all of these facts from the age of three. Details like the time would be difficult for a small child to remember, but then a conversation with a ghost may linger.
"You're a special one" could mean SOOOO much. Special because you could see her? Special because you could hear her? Special because you followed her? Special in a way that has nothing to do with her?
I do not have these answers. It is just too bad that there is not a time machine created that we could go back to the time when you were three and ask her.
Thank you.

Very cool! The woman must have been sent down to look over all of the small children, she could have lost many of her own, and that's why she appeaered. I believe sometimes that happens.

Maybe your guardian angel? Well my little brother had a similar experience, except that he got scared and he only saw the long white dress trailing behind the door

Well I realy liked your story. I did find it odd that you remembered everything so detailed at such a youg age but some people do have good memory. Well If this story is true and something is telling me that it IS true then maybe this was an angel. Do you remember how you felt other then the fear? Thanks for sharring. I hjope to hear from you soonn and take care
