Am I Crazy Or Is This Real?


Every so often, strange things happen in my house. This is the first year I've ever seen a spirit or heard unexplainable things.

No one else seems to see what I see, and they think I'm crazy!

When I was brushing my hair, before I went to bed, I saw a small, cat like figure. It was white, and foggy. When I turned around to get a close glimpse at it, it was gone. I was completely paranoid for a long time.

Now, I was about to get some sleep, when I heard knocking at my front door. I woke up, and my dogs were barking. I walked to my front door and looked out the peep hole, nobody was there.

This has been happening almost every night.

In late March, I was dreaming about a guy I liked named, Archer. When I woke up, because my dad stomped his feet through the hall way, I saw the guy I liked at the corner of my room. My eyes were open all the way, so I knew what I saw was real. He smiled, and then my eyes blinked.

When my eyes were open again, he wasn't their. I was scared, but I was too sleepy to realize it. I don't know if Archer is dead, though.

My dreams are much similar to all this. The ghost-like figures, the knocks, Archer, and everything else that I saw. But I never knew my dreams were trying to tell me something!

What are my dreams trying to tell me?

Am I being haunted by an unknown paranormal figure?

Can anyone help me?

Now there is times when people wake up physically, but are mentally still in the dream world, so the two worlds become one for that instant. So Archer was probably part of the dream world.

The best advice that I can give you is talk to Archer and tell him how you feel. Perhaps the significance of him being in your room is your subconcious trying to tell you to do the same. The knocking may or may not have any significant meaning. I could be someone playing jokes on you, or it could be a mischevious presence that just wants to be noticed. As for you cat, I agree with the fact that it is probably in pain or troubled.

ok, I read what you wrote. You said you dream of the same things you see. Dreams are kind of like marrors, they are portols to the spirte world, usaly if a spirte is dead that you like (archer) you can summon him to the real world. BUT there are ways you can bring a living soul to you through a dream, which is another thing for another time. If he was not dead and was in your house and just disapeared, then e-mail me so I can tell you about the living soul thing. Your cat is in pain or unrestful, which is bad. Many people think its good to see some one they miss, but if an spirte is unrested for too long, it has an 50% of turning harmfull. A little advice, becare full. Now that knock could mean a few things. 1: is what angelfeathers told you. 2: that could be a warning of somthing to come, (can be good or bad) 3: a little kid ghost joke. 4: or mind tricks. Well e-mail me any one if you need help still. Dragongod101 [at]

Hello! My question to you is how well do you know archer? It seems like if you like him so much you'd know if he was dead or alive. Did he move away or something? Also I agree with angel feathers, tell the knocking to go away and do not let it in. Hope this helps! Good luck!

Consider: When someone knocks on your door, it's because they want to speak to you, to dialogue with you. This is part and parcel of having a relationship with you. (Can't have much of a relationship without communicating, can you?)

Culturally (and biblically), knocking is the precursor to a dialogue/a relationship. (An aside to Christians only: See Rev. 3:20; and recall that Scripture is often misused by The Enemy to mislead and tempt/test us.)

Something is trying to gain entry to your life, but in order to do this, it has to have your permission. Hence, the knocking. This entity is trying to get your attention auditorally (knocking) and visually, and it's presenting itself in a non-threatening or pleasing form to gain acceptance/entry. It's important to note here that it's being DECEPTIVE and MANIPULATIVE. It's not presenting itself as it truly is. It's deliberately choosing forms that it believes you will find pleasing.

PLEASE do NOT invite this entity into your life. It will bring chaos. The next time it knocks, tell it in no uncertain terms to go away. Tell it that it is NOT welcome in your life. You will have to be persistent in your refusals, but it will eventually give up and find someone else to pester.

Hey everyone!
Some of you do not clearly get what I'm saying. I do believe I WAS awake and I know what I saw. As for the cat, it was my cat Shadow who died 3 years ago. And the knocking, I'm still not sure what's causing it.

Im not sure about the archer thing, but you clearly said you have been dreaming about him so it could have possibly been a dream, but you think your certain it wasnt. I'm not saying I don't believe you, its just it could be a possibility. And as for the cat thing, I have had this happy many times, its common maybe they want to just re-visit the area, maybe they are looking for their original owner, who knows.:) ❤

I have seen the spirits of a few people I know, and was initially worried, but they weren't dead (I later found). I think it depends on the person, I wouldn't get any hopes up but some people are able to visit others via remote viewing in spirit form. I have thought I have seen things whilst half-asleep, the problem is that experiences that happen at that time can be stranger than normal (because the mind is not quite as rational while tired). However, I have heard that spirits can contact people more often while their mind is in a more relaxed state. 😐
As for the ghost animals, I have seen many. They can belong to other spirits visiting or occupying the land, or it can be (as I have found) a past pet of a parent.

sometimes spirits can take the form of anything they like. It could be an evil spirit after something, or a good spirit trying to get on your good side by taking the form of who you like. I hope the evil spirit part doesn't scare you. But it would help if you keep some type of sage with you. It drives away any negative energy. Or wear a crystal. 😉

Another suggestion, could it be windows rattling from windy or rainy nights?. I have had windows knock around and it sounds like someone at the front door. The cat?, there are ethereal beings that will take the shape that is less frightening, and since it got caught by you, it hasn't been back. Archer?, Is he a dream boyfriend or a real person?. This isn't clear in your story. Blessings, Ghostseer... You have nothing to fear...

You are not crazy.
Most of my family doesn't believe my sightings. I know how you feel.
I'd say personally if not Archer whatever is haunting you may just know your mind well and is taking form of this guy.

This is crazy I can't believe some of ythese comments. It is clear that you are obsessed about this guy and you were obviously dreaming. Archer did not die and visit you. So yea I would think it is a dream. I am guessing that you are maybe around the age of 13. You better hope that Archer doesn't find out how obsessed you are over him because It might freak him out. I don't even know you and it is scarry that you could be so obsessed about someone that you use him as your screenname. Sorry If I am being really mean, but I remember what it was like to be your age and kids can be really harsh. I am just trying to save you from the embarrassment sweetheart. The knocking can be explained and the misty cat... No idea sorry. ❤ Jasmin

I don't quite get it if you liked the guy wouldn't you know if he was dead or not? Is it possible I am missing something? And with the knocking I would check what is around your area that could be causing the noise. If there is a spirit it doesn't seem malevolent but maybe having you house blessed or even buying some protective crystals will help.:)

So let me get this straight, when you saw the cat, you were awake and combing your hair, but you have not see the cat again.

Knocking on your door, well are you sure it is the door and nothing else, maybe someone is doing something nearer your home at a specific time.

So you are dreaming of this Guy you really lilke, what is there to tell on that one, a dream is a dream, you clearly are head over heels about him and that is why you are dreaming of him, there is no other reason.
