A Tug On My Clothes


Not really sure where to start with this... A few things have happened leading up to it but I never thought I would be hurt.

A few weeks ago I had a visitor at my house with her 2 children. Her eldest boy was being naughty so I moved him out of the room to calm down and sat him on the stairs, when he had calmed down I let him back in and he was fine for a while, then started being naughty again so I moved him back to the stairs, I moved away and was just on the other side of the door when he started screaming and crying, I rushed back to see what had happened in fear that he had hurt himself, he ran over to me and was begging to be picked up and moved away from the stairs. When I had him in my arms he turned and pointed to the top of my stairs, and screamed "MAN"! Of course I said there is no one there as there was no male in the house at the time. He was really scared about it so I took him to another room to calm him.

At the time I was a little spooked but put it to the back of my mind the day after, but that night as I was watching TV (at this point I was alone in the house) It felt as if a hand stroked the top of my head (actually lifting the front of my hair up enough to see it move and stick up) running all the way down to the base of my neck.

Now last week, I had another friend over to watch a film with me, around 10pm I headed upstairs to use the bathroom, about half way down a felt a small tug on the back of my vest top, nothing too bad, it just felt like I had snagged it on something, but the hairs on the back of my neck stood up and I felt an ice cold breeze chill where I had been tugged. Calmly I went back to join my friend and told her about it, I turned round to show her where I felt the tug, my neck was scratched slightly but enough to make it bleed. My friend was also getting the hairs standing up on the back of her neck throughout the night.

Since then I have tried calling out a few times when I felt cold but had no response, I am a little worried if I get hurt again... What will it be?

Any feedback on this will be gratefully received.

I,ve sure had my fair share of "experiances" recently! Several times I feel something holding my hand and its icey cold... Or something brushing against my face... Again its touch is like ice. I'm feeling a lot more calmer around it recently.

I,ve found out that before my block of houses were built it was all farm land and riads leading to the land... So I'm still quite confused...

Its took me a while to write this as I'm still a little in shock, a few weeks ago I headed to bed at my usual time and was just settling down ready for going to sleep, I felt a hard tug on my bed sheets and "It" (whatever/whoever it was) slowley pulled them down to just under my knee... I felt icey cold and had pressure on my legs... I'm really scared about going to sleep every night now! I have started sleeping in another room!

That was a great story, I think the spirit is trying to tell you something. I think you should, if you can stand it, let it guide you to whatever its trying to show you. From what I have learned they appreciate a good listener... Good Luck 😁

You know of succubus/incubus? Look it up and you will understand the next part.
This ghost seems interested in you, seems to hang around the stairs, if your bedroom is near, no wonder why, do you feel cold at night? More than usual? The tugging was perhaps ghost wanting you to go with him to some place. Also you said that he was on the stairs, is the a basement or something below the stairs? If there is go and explore with your friends, but before you go in imagine a shield around yourself in your mind and tell your friends to do the same thing, when all are done, proceed inside if you see anything out of the ordinary, stare at it. You may see something, also look in the corner of your eye sometimes.

If there is no attic, do not fret this ghost is not trying to hurt you, just being playful. Be relaxed around it, have some friends over for whatnot. Have a party, enjoy life, perhaps the ghost can enjoy being in this house?

Feel free to email me about this, here is my email: droid.181 [at]

Great story. Heres what I think you should do. I think you should do some research on your house and find out if anyone has died there or if it is on some buriel ground. Then once you find out what's up try talking to the spirit about it.
Hope this helps.
