The Lady Beside My Bed


About five or six years back I woke up to a terrible nightmare where I was running from a lady that was calling my name as I ran I fell into a pit to hell. Right when I fell into the flames of hell I awoke in fear, still hearing my name. I checked around my house but find nothing strange, as I walked back to my room it stopped. I lie back down and fall asleep and as I have the same dream I notice some about the laid a faint recognition and sorrow in her eyes and my running from her went on for quite some time and then I awoke from the dream.

Now fear is spreading through my body I could barely move and as I slowly started to get my movement back she started calling my name again witch still would strike fear in my body. I managed to get out of that room and look around my house as a slowly walked from room to room.

I felt sadder and sadder but I finally reached the last room in my house but I still came up with nothing until... I returned to my room to get a good sleep even though the calling of my name continued so I slowly walked to my room nervous of what I mite see and rite when I get to the stairs into my room a lady with long brown hair no legs and a white robe is lifting the covers up to my bed and when she discovered I was not there she turned around...

Fear had taken over my body now and I couldn't move as the sad lady walked toward me. I finally kicked into action and ran to sleep in my parent's room.

The next morning I told my parents my story they said I was dreaming but I knew in my heart what I said had happened. I told my two sisters and the my brother the same story my sister didn't believe me but my brother who is a strong believer in ghosts believed me.

That was the last I saw or herd of that ghosts it may be the last but who knows...

Thanks for reading my first story more to come up soon and some time ill have to go out after dark like 3 A.M. When it's dead time and try and get a couple E.V.P's

You have changed so much...:) For the better. I was going through the sites because of the Vendetta Siblings work I was telling you about, & I found your account. You truly were too nice back then...& you sucked at spelling. You're probably never going to read this, but I wanted to take some time off to tell anyone that DOES read this that...

I love you, Colten. I love you so very much. You are the greatest thing to ever come into my life, my love. We've gone through hell together, and it was worth it. You are amazing. I pray to God that it be His will that I spend forever with you.

Hi Colten:

First off I am not going to comment about your spelling... In fact, I think a couple of responders were a little hard on you.

Thanks for sharing your story. I am sure that this was a very frightening experience. I will say that I believe you although there are things such as night terrors, nightmares of sorts, that seem very real but are not.

I pray that you will not experience that one again.

Hey! I know how late I am with this story, but as everyone else says, you should try talking to her. I'm not a medium, but I've had ghost experiences just like everyone else. 😉

Taylor ❤

hey colten! My only advice is try to talk to that lady (if you're brave enough). She might be warning you of coming problem or situation. There's another method though, try praying before you go to sleep and pray again for thanks when you woke up. This really helps. And pray also for the lady's soul. A clear yet not-so loud praying of "Our Father" will do help. Goodluck.

Hi, whoever the lady is, I think she is good. She is trying to save you from falling into the pit of hell. Her sad eyes you mentioned shows her concern for you. Well if she ever comes to you again, please don't run and heed her call.

One more thing, now is the present. If something of the likeness of the dream occurs to you in reality, learn from your dream, don't run but heed the call instead.

Colten I understand by your seeing the ghost woman having no legs (I have read this type of thing before) but yet she walked up to you. You saw her moving towards you with the same movements as if she had legs, it is not hard for me to picture that. I have heard of people seeing headless ghosts, yet they hear the ghost talking. 😐

wow, so You have had an experience with ghosts too. That's great, although it was frightning. We got something in common then:P I've tried E.V.P.s too but they haven't given me any proof yet. Maybe a pendelum would be a great idea to get some answers. Just a thought

Colten, you poor dear. You had an undoubtedly scary experience and all people can do is comment on your poor English. Yes, it is good they are helping you in that area to do better, for the reader and as an enhancement to your life. But back to your story. It is scary the dream and waking up to hearing your name being called. I too would of been very afraid. And then seeing her in your room with no legs and she runs up to you, I would of not been so brave as you. I will pray for you if you do not mind. Thanks for sharing your story. ❤

Colten thanks for sharing your experience with us.

I think before taking any drastic action, try to remain calm and give it some time to make sure that it wasn't just your fear after a nightmare. You need to have more indications before you start speculating it was something supernatural.

Apart from that, EVPs shouldn't be considered a simple task. You need to understand that even recording is a type of communication which you will then need to handle. In short, don't ask for more than you can deal with.

Try to be patient, write down anything out of the ordinary you experience and discuss it with us before you do anything hasty.

None of us is an expert on the spirtual world and despite our experiences, we've come to respect and sometimes fear the unknown. All we can do is make a few suggestions which you can either follow or discard.

Thank you

Colten, even though I agree with the previous comments, I am not going to blast you about your atrocious use of the English language. A simple solution to your problem would be to either download the firefox browser (it has a built in spell check) or write your stories in microsoft works word processor, it has spell check and grammar check. When you finish just copy and paste it into the submission form.

When you get to the heart of your story, I can see where it would indeed be frightening. If you do decide to investigate-do so with caution. Good luck buddy.

PLEASE before your next story learn how to spell and use english properly. After all you are an American. Try to put your basic elementary english classes to some good use for pitys sake! 🤔
