This happened when I was 10 years old. 25 years ago.
It was winter and we were living in a house where my room was in the basement. It was a nice, finished basement though. I would sometime stop playing or doing what I was doing abruptly just to listen; I would hear people whispering a lot. It was as if they were in the room with me. Me being ten, I didn't tell my mother for her thinking I was crazy.
On three occasions I would be trying to go to sleep and I would feel someone poke their finger into my side. The first two times this happened I would turn around and of course, nothing would be there. The third time I didn't even look. Even my mom would hear things down there because I remember she was a little scared one day. She heard something downstairs and slowly crept down the stairs with a bat in her hand yelling obscenities to scare the intruder out and off course, nothing there.
One night I woke up in the middle of the night to see the shadow of a person looking in my window! I was freaking out and crying hysterically and ran to my mother's room. The next day I went outside to see the footsteps in the snow outside my window. There were none... This was the first and only time I am certain I saw a ghost. Since then, I have had many psychic experiences...
