I have had paranormal experiences since I was at least three years old (I'm 23 now). To start with I have 5 shadows that walk my walls when I get nervous or before something happens (such as the night my Aunt died of cancer). They look like shadows of men. I have never been afraid of them, I consider them my guardians.
Growing up I used to think there was something in my grandparent's house (I lived with them). I'd hear footsteps on the basement stairs and in the hallway. My grandparents told me it was just the house settling. When I was about 9 my cousin and I decided to explore the crawl space in our basement. We tossed in a pool cue stick to knock down cobwebs and we both saw it land on the ground. As we started to climb in the cue stick shot out of the crawl space barely missing us. As I said we both saw it land so it did not bounce off of anything. We were scared senseless and closed the crawl space door, locked it, and stacked boxes in front of it. We ran upstairs to get my grandpa and when he came down the boxes were unstacked and the door was open about 3 or 4 inches. I never went in the basement again. Now that I have moved out, my grandma and the housekeeper have seen a woman walking through the house.
I used to (and still do) see the occasional shadow walk along the wall. These shadows are different from the 5 guardians that patrol my walls.
Now I'm living at my mother-in-law's home, which has somewhat of a history with her. Nothing spectacular or tragic has happened in the house or on the property, but if we put railing on the stairs leading to the second floor and old homeless-looking man will sit there and watch you. My husband has also seen a clown-like face in one of the upstairs windows. My own experience is vastly different from theirs and is one I need help with.
One night I woke up and got this horrible scared feeling and was almost to the point of tears I was so scared. I looked over at the closet (which was open) and I could see a black mass sitting in the corner. It seemed to be moving back and forth like it wanted to come out and then it would retreat back in. As soon as I could take my eyes off of the thing I noticed my guardian shadows almost racing around the walls. I dragged my husband into the room next door and he feel back asleep on the couch while I was wide-awake.
The closet in this room was open (it is only separated from the other closet by a very thin wall) and I could see the figure move into that closet, coming through the wall. The 5 shadow guardians also followed us into that room. As the figure would try to come forward the shadows would go around the walls faster and then slow down as it retreated. At one point the figure surged out at me and in a very clear deep male voice said "6...6... In the car". It repeated this message two or three times and then fell back into the closet. After about thirty minutes the figure faded away and my shadows left and I felt calm again. I could feel the presence of this figure around the house for a few days after but nothing else happened. That was two years ago. We moved out for a while and have now moved back into the same rooms. Over the last couple of weeks I've heard the voice say "6...6... In the car" 5 or 6 times.
There is also a little spirit girl named Kathleen who is hanging around. I'll see her sitting on my bed or walking down the hall but then she vanishes. She likes to move my things around while I'm at work and she is terrified at night, stays near the bed. I can't always see her but I can feel her and she seems to be able to communicate with me telepathically when she needs. I'll see her face and then her name pops into my head or I'll picture her face and then I'll see where she hid my things.
Thank you for taking your time to read my story. I'd appreciate anyone's take on what I've gone through as well as any suggestions as to what "6...6... In the car" means.
