This happened to my cousin two summers ago when she went to Morocco since she lives in France and she wants to know what happened.
She went to sleep early in our grandparent's room because she got mad about something. She went to sleep and since there was a wedding party going on at a neighbor's house, the music woke up my cousin in the middle of the night. When she turned in the bed, she was facing towards the doorway and she saw an apparition of an old man with a long beard at the door. At first she thought she was dreaming so she pinched herself like people do on TV and stuff. She said she felt the pinch so she was awake.
She got very creeped out so she turned towards the wall for about twenty minutes. She was conscious and very aware of what was going on so she was very afraid. She peeked back a few times and the man just kept on staring at her and she was too afraid to shout or anything of the sort.
She kept her head towards the wall since she was afraid and when she looked back once more, the old man was gone.
She was very afraid so after the man disappeared, she stood up and turned all the lights on and went to sleep in the room where her family was staying.
We've posted this story on a forum for experiences and some people said it was sleep paralysis but we researched it and when you have sleep paralysis, you cannot move no matter how hard you try for a little bit and you see weird things since you're awake but your body is sleeping at the same time. Some other people suggested that a man broke into the house but that isn't possible since the house is very safe and we always lock the doors before everyone goes to sleep.
The house was built; it wasn't bought so no one died in the house but who knows about the land before the house was there.
My cousin doesn't believe in the paranormal much but if she finds out this is a real ghost she'll definitely freak out and become a believer.
Since I'm staying with her family for the summer I can see if I'll experience the same thing as her since we're all going to Morocco in two weeks.
Also, I'm the only one in her family who happens to believe her so if anyone has similar experiences or can see what she can do, please comment on it.
