This story is not exactly scary but it is stuff that has been happening to me lately, also I am actually needing help of how I could find out in an inexpensive way if these incidents are real or not. I still have my doubts, but I do believe in the paranormal!
I am 15 and currently living in Oklahoma. In my house my room is where I experience the most "possible" activity. When we first moved in, which is quite awhile back, I don't exactly remember experiencing anything. I really doubt I actually did, considering I was very young around 9 or 10 and I easily got spooked, trust me, I would have remembered if something happened.
These past two years I have been experiencing different things. It started out with hearing bumps all around my walls. I doubt it is any kind of rodents because I have researched sings of animals being in homes. It usually says you can hear bumps AND hear them running about and scratching on the walls. I only hear bumps, which is more like knocks because they are pretty loud or at least loud enough to wake me up or to hear over the T.V.! I don't think I hear it easily because I'm alert with fear. I am actually not afraid and I don't feel like the "thing" or whatever it is evil because I don't feel alarmed when I hear the knocks, but as I was saying (I get distracted easily sorry), I have heard the knocks almost every day.
Once it actually stopped for quite a few months that I even forgot all about it until I heard it again. I think as the years go by it gets louder.
I am in my room right now typing this and I actually just heard it by me. Funny. But anyways, it usually knocks all over my room. There has never been a certain location. (Not that I've noticed at least.) It knocks sometimes about once or twice, and other times louder and more times on one area then knocks again somewhere else more lightly about once. Sometimes when I'm lying in bed it knocks next to my face since my bed is up against the wall. I actually sometimes say a few words to it. (If it's even anything but I think it probably is something.) I say like, "Shush I'm trying to sleep", or "Be quiet please!" Believe it or not it does as I say ha-ha. I sometimes ask what it is it wants, but of course how would it tell me.
I have told my parents but you know how adults are... My dad just says don't worry about it. Which I don't, I'm just telling them. My mom has actually heard it. We have actually experienced it together, it also happens in her room, but less often. She says she just ignores it. But let's move on to another story though, this one is actually spooky. (To me at least.)
Before my sister graduated from college she would visit once every other weekend. She would sometimes stay in my room but when I had friends stay the night she would sleep in my mom's room since my mom has a big king sized bed. One time my sister had come to visit, it was during the time my mom had gone to visit my grandparents in Mexico. So she had the room to her self. It was a Saturday night and my sister decided to go to sleep. The next morning she told me she had something she wanted to tell me. She looked like she was unsure of what she wanted to tell me.
She said she woke up in the middle of the night for no reason and the room was lit up enough to where she could see and make out the shape of the furniture and stuff. Which is normal because the next-door neighbours have a bright light outside and my moms curtains on the window are always slightly open. She told me somehow the room seemed to be getting darker although she could tell the neighbours light was still on. It got pitch black but that somehow she started seeing the shape of a big black hooded figure hovering over the edge of the bed. She tried ignoring it and closed her eyes and turned around. She said for once in her life she felt scared since she does not believe in the paranormal, she believes things can just happen coincidently and that it usually had an explanation.
She has never mentioned what happened ever again since she is over it and probably doesn't even remember. (Oh and this was probably last year). I'm not sure what to think of it, if it was a demon I'm sure it would have kept making itself known. But my theory behind this is that it could have possibly have been my moms energy. I'll explain.
Some people believe that the mentally ill are more sensitive to the supernatural and that they can somehow attract it. Well I think that since my mom is schizophrenic she accumulated energy and that maybe the black hooded figure somehow created itself from the energy or something like that. I'm not sure...
Well this is my story and I am still experiencing the knocks as you previously read. Thank you for taking the time to read it! Ill repeat a question that I wrote at the beginning paragraph that I have for the readers out there and some that know more than me about the supernatural. "Is there a safe and inexpensive way for me to know for sure if this is a real ghost in my house?" I would love to hear your ideas! Ill keep updated if anything different occurs in my house other than the knockings. Thanks again!:)
