A Ghost on my Sister's Bed


I'm 31 years old, but back when I was 16 years old, I lived with my parents along with my two brothers (I'm a triplet), and two sisters in a New York City apartment Upper Manhattan. I was in my bedroom finishing up my homework. There was one math equation I could not figure out. Since my sister Pamela is a wizard when it comes to Mathematics, I decided to head over to her room. Her door was slightly opened and I walked in.

I saw a medium built guy, about 6 feet tall, sleeping perfectly on her bed. As I move closer, his eyes opened and gave me a blank stare. I freaked out and ran and noticed my sister was in the living room.I told my sister what happened. That 'boyfriend' was trying to scare me. "I don't have a boyfriend and I didn't bring anyone home with me." I grabbed her hand and lead her to bedroom, only to see he was gone. I know it was no intruder since the windows were locked at that time.

I was a bit disturbed by the fact I had my own encounter with a ghost. Before this incident I was skeptical about ghost now I'm a believer.

And to think an urban environment would somehow make you feel safe from such supernatural experience. This shatters such stereotype and scared the sh** out of me.

that's really creepy to stare at you... Perhaps he has some unfinished business in that house... But you know, you're lucky, you saw a part of his face. Whenever I see a ghost, I don't see the face. Next time you see one, just stare at the entity and he will just fade away. Don't run. The more you run, the more they'll show up. They don't usually harm the living.

silentoption, has anyone else in your family had any unusual experiences? Has anything happened to you since? If it has you should check out the history of the place to find out what may be causing this boy/man to be there. If it was a one time thing, maybe it was just a residual haunting that you just happened to witness. Since everything seems to be innocent I wouldn't worry too much about it. You might want to ask him to leave, that he scares you and you don't want it to continue. He may just be confused. Thanks for sharing your story.

That gave me goose bumps, Great story! I hate it when people give you blank stares, it freaks me out, at times.

Take care and much love,

I have ghosts in my house and I can hear them. I'm not scared of them because I'm used to them. They are sometimes in my dreams. I recognise them from my dreams they try telling me things but keep forgetting. 😊 I heard a little girls voice last week and she banged as well.

My other sister is married and living with her husband in Pennsylvania. My brothers have joined the Army and are currently deployed. I am kind of glad we left there.

I would be careful and wary of that place and anymore activity, as I know it to be true that Ghosts are not spirits of the dearly departed, but Demons that take on the form of something familiar. These demons are known as familiar spirits and are dangerous. Possession Is a very real and present danger as well as physical harm. I would urge you NOT to mess or play with the occult such as phsycics or mediums, tarot cards and ouja boards as these will open up doors for these spirits to further mess with you. These things are very real and documented. Many poeple have been thrown around rooms by invisible "spirits" and scratched. Many unexplained yet very real things have happened. These Demons are The children of The Nephilim. Whatever you do, I would urge you to consider prayer and help from someone at your local church. Or if you like I would be willing to help if anything else transpires with these spirits.

that is pretty freaky, I have to say. my own bedroom seems to be a hotspot, and it makes it really hard to sleep at night... nothing happened to your sister later on did it?

That is so crazy! I would be so damn freaked out and never sleep in that room again....not to scare you or anything. I notice that most experience seeing a ghost and then when you look away, the ghost dissappears. Of three supernatural experiences that I've had, one was with a boy that dissappeared but it was in a park... I don't know if I can handle seeing one in my room.
