My experiences began happening about 4 years ago. Firstly, in my parents house, then in the house I am currently living in. I am renting and sharing with 3 other girls.
My bedroom at home (in my parents' house) has always been a cold room. Everybody says it's the coldest in the house. The house isn't old at all, only 13 years old.
About 4 years ago, I started waking up in the middle of the night to see a dark figure standing beside my bed, looking at me or sometimes closer up to my face. I couldn't make out a face just a dark figure. I felt it was male. When this happened, for some reason I would wave my hand in front of its face, for it to go away, as if I'm clearing it or something. It went then. I was never afraid of this, I just thought it was an annoyance that I had been woken up! I usually would fall back to sleep straight away after this. I never thought it was anything more than my imagination, when it first started happening. I used to joke to my friends about it, calling it my hallucinations! I always hoped that it was in my sleep!
Then weird things started to happen. I'd be lying in bed and I'd feel my blankets being pulled from the bottom of the bed. I didn't look to see what it was or anything, as I was freaked out. Then other times I would feel like somebody was sitting on my bed, like down by my legs. I could actually feel the indent on the bed. It felt kind of like a parent would sit on your bed. It felt so real. Again I didn't look, as I was so scared, so I would pray really hard and try to go back to sleep.
Sometimes when I was lying on my side in bed, I could feel the blankets being taken off me from behind me. It would get cold. Again I'd just pull my blankets back, not look, and try to go back to sleep. Another thing that has happened, on a few occasions, is I've felt as if I'm being tucked into the bed, all the way around me! One of my friends thinks if it is a spirit that it's friendly because of the way they sit on my bed or tuck me in!
Since I've been living in my new house (the one I'm sharing) I've started to experience kind of the same things. I wake up and see the figure standing beside my bed looking down at me. I shake my hand and it goes away. I go back to sleep again.
However the last time this happened, when I waved my hand it didn't go away. So I pulled back the curtain (the window is right beside my bed) and it went away then. The next morning when I woke up, my curtain was open. This really freaked me out, as it was kind of like proof that I am awake when I see this thing! This hasn't happened in a few months now. I've moved to a new bedroom, in the same house, and also I have started wearing eye shades when I'm in bed. I haven't woken up in the middle of the night since then.
