Factory Protector


Now... In my past stories except for the ones about my pets, the entities I have encountered are and have been dark and creepy. This one seems different.

I just recently started a new job in a factory, and for privacy reasons I will not specify which company. This spirit is a prankster. I am not sure if it is male or female but I do know it likes to play around with me-some times when I'm working with the machines I feel random poking in my middle back and when I turn around there is no one around.

It also seems to know my name, I have heard 'mentally' "Josh turn around!" I turn and no one is there. It also has pulled a "WHAT ARE YOU DOING!" I turn and it laughs. I have also seen shadows and a person in the corner of my eye and when I take a better look they are gone.

Now the reason I call it a protector is because one day I was working on a particularly old machine of ours when I felt the poke again. I chose to ignore it then I felt it again with more force this time. I whip around to see no one. I say in my head "HAHA very funny" The Spirit then yelled to me "DUCK!" I ducked as told just as a screw burst out of the machine exactly where my head had been not 5 seconds earlier. This screw came out with a force that caused it to embed itself in one of our thick boxes. This experience has caused me to believe the spirit, despite the fact it enjoys tormenting me, has grown a soft spot for me and felt it needed to warn me.

Any comments are appreciated, I would love to hear what other people think.

Wow! It seems like you have a lot of expierence with ghosts. Do you know if anyone died there? I don't want to sound like a know it all but maybe it got hurt in an accident and didn't want you to get hurt... 😕

Sounds like to me that this spirit is a prankster, but also wants to be there to protect you. If it wasn't the spirit telling you to duck, then that screw would have hit you. Maybe it could have been someone you knew or maybe the spirit is just connected to the area that you work. Good thing it was there when it was. Thanks for sharing your story. 😊

I to believe that this spirit might be a prankster but as you say it realy does sound like a protector.He/she probably likes you and chose you.Why.It deepends what kind of person you are. But for sure if it wants some company and you will never know when this spirit will show itself. And I have the feeling that sooner or later it will. I hope to hear from you soon and take care

Sounds like the spirit friend is a joker who cares about you, about making sure you don't have an accident however the question I pose to you is this. Is it only at work you find this spirit or does he or she follow you around?

Great story! It must be comforting knowing that there's someone watching out for you, even if it does play tricks sometimes. The place you're working at sounds pretty dangerous, please be careful!

I guess the spirit wanted you around a bit longer. Maybe you are the only one that it can communicate with and it's not ready to see you leave. Whatever the reason you escaped injury and that's a good thing. Have you always been intuitive or is this a first for this kind of event? My aunt while driving heard a voice that told her to slow down. She listened. As she was about to get to a crossroads a tractor trailer sped through the intersection. Had she been going her regular speed she would have connected with it. She knew she was given a warning and she was glad she heeded it. Glad you did too.

Well, some ghosts are not that bad at all. Maybe the ghost just want some company and that it choses you because he/she knows that you can sense him/her. 😊

Wow, that was really nice of it. It might be playing tricks on you but at least it wants you to live long enough to play more tricks on you! 😜

That's awesome to hear that you have a guardian angel or somewhat. 😁
I think he/she wants to communicate with you... If you happen to feel the same way, why won't you try talking to it. 😁
