The Ghost In My Room


This all started when I was 7. My friend Andrea came to my house in the summer because she had no one to take care of her so my grandma and I babysat her.

My brother usually watched TV in the living room with Andrea. I was in summer school so I had to do some homework and I was always in my room doing it.

I started doing some math problems while the light was on since it was night. Then the light went crazy, it kept on turning on and off. I was freaking scared out of my mind.

I ran to the living room where my brother and Andrea was and told them that the lights were turning on and off but they didn't believe and when I showed them, the lights were fine. When they went back to the living room, I felt a cold breeze of air go past me. That was not possible because it was like 80 degrees outside and all the windows in my house were closed.

I grabbed the math book and started to work again as thought it was nothing. Then I looked at the lamp mirror and I saw my reflection and standing behind me was a tall shadow. Its size was maybe that of my brother's but I quickly turned around to find that it had disappeared. After that nothing else happened with the lights. But I still felt that some kind of spirit is always in my room always staring at me.

My friend just got kicked in the face just yesterday and no one was near him while we were in the room. I'll write the story later. 😲

Hi, I wonder if anyone died around that time like a family member. If I'm right then maybe it's that person.

I guess that the ghost is too good not disturbing you, try to talk with it and get some work done like home work or plucking fruits from next door...ahhha...imagine good fun! Interesting and thrilling

If you feel uneasy with this presence, say a prayer for it to depart from you in the name of the Lord, and send it to peace, it may be an Earth bound soul 😢

Have you had other experiences with this shadow person? I hope you haven't, experiences with shadow people are never much fun.

I once encountered one but thankfully it was nowhere near where I live so I've never again seen it.

If it still haunts you I'm sure someone here will be able to give you advice on how to remove it.
