I have read quite a few interesting stories of paranormal on this site and would like to share a few odd experiences myself and perhaps someone may have had the same experience also? Back in October 1982, my best friend and I were just out front the steps of my parent's home, which had huge hedges out front the house, which blocked the view of the street and sidewalk.
Anyways, I'd say it was nearing the 9pm hour as my best friend and me heard someone walking behind the hedges, well, it sounded more like heavy steps a male in shoes would make or perhaps someone in clogs, well, some footwear with a heel. Of course we stopped talking only to start laughing (cause that's how teenage girls are) over how noisy this person walked when all of a sudden; a mall grey cat appeared from the end of the bush.
To our surprise, we first laughed it off thinking, maybe the person was about to appear but there were no more footsteps as the cat sat near the edge of the driveway and peered as us. Well, of course we tried to scare it off thinking cats usually are timid. Can you believe that feline didn't budge and continued staring us over. You bet we got really scared at that point thinking either this is a witch or some source of evil. We raced into my house as my best friend had to call her brother to pick her up even if she lived a half block away, yah, that's how scared we were.
I also recall other strange events in my life, one night I was settling into sleep and felt someone walk into my bedroom. Assuming it was my dad who came to close my window since it started raining outside. Well, next thing was the eerie feeling of being watched. Of course I racked it up to an overactive imagination but after feeling or what I assumed was a cold piece of steel behind my neck, I froze in absolute fear.
I honestly thought a burglar broke in and was going to shoot me in bed. What scared me more; I could hear my dad snoring from his bedroom. I thought okay, stay calm. Started to pray, then I thought, well, pull the trigger already and get it over with. Finally after a few more rounds of heavy prayers, gathered some guts and lifted my head. Of course there was no one there, my heart was pounding and to this day, still wonder if it was a dream or real?
I would also have strange dreams of the ceiling bursting open and water gushing onto my bed, hearing someone calling me in the distance. The feeling of being watched, another time, while lying in bed and actually feeling an electrifying sensation on my back. Yes, you better believe I was beyond scared after that.
Also, chatter in my ears, the feeling of sensing a spirit which to me sounds similar to the TV being on but the volumes on mute. Sort of a faint humming noise. I'm not sure if this is real, my imagination or just a little sensitive to the spiritual world and many times I do not even want to find out because let's face it, rather spooky.
One thing I do believe is we are not alone in the universe and would have to be arrogant and ignorant to think otherwise. Anyhow, thanks for the opportunity to post.
