From a very early age I have been terrified of the dark, not because of the things I can't see, but of the things I can see. Forms of humans and creatures sitting in the shadows, forms of faces sitting so clearly at the end of my bed waiting for me to fall asleep. I had always assumed that most young children experienced these images due to the mind playing tricks on you but one particular night changed this belief. It maybe that what we think is just figures of our imaginations, are actually real.
The first time I experienced a ghostly encounter was several years ago in 2002, when I was eleven. My family and I were living in a small log cabin house in Sarnia, QLD. We lived in the house for over 2 years. It was in the fourth month in which I came to believe that the house contained some form of ghost or spiritual energy.
It was late at night around 10 or 11 pm. I was trying to sleep but wasn't getting far with my attempts. I decided to turn my light on and see if I could fall asleep that way. When I had covered myself with my blankets I turned on to my right side, which faces the door to try to help me sleep. I had been looking at the door for about 10 minutes when a female figure stood at the door way. Originally I thought that it was my mum, but then I realized she was wearing some weird 1800's dress and while she appeared to be solid she had a weird tinge of red overall on her body. Before giving me a minute to figure out who she was she turned my light off and started to hover/glide towards me. Just before reaching my bed I noticed that she was glaring at me. She made me feel uncomfortable, like I couldn't trust her. Before I got a chance to scream she disappeared quicker than she appeared. About a minute after she disappeared, a man also dressed like he was from the 18oo's appeared. Unlike her he had a strange white like glow around him, and I had a weird sense of safety and protection. Just before he vanished he turned my light back on and smiled at me.
This went on for months afterwards this strange game of cat and mouse carried on each night he got rid of her faster and each night he came closer to me. The last time I saw them he sat at my bed and smiled at me. He made me feel like somehow everything was going to be ok and then he left. I am not sure why I saw him then and why I can't see him now but I can feel his presence with me all the time. Sometimes I can feel him touching my shoulder or my back. Whoever he is or was I like to think of him as my guardian angel.
For years I have tried to learn about who he is and what he is but nobody seems to help me.
If anyone believe they know please don't be afraid to contact me.
