Ever since I moved into my house 10 years ago, I have been experiencing the paranormal here and there. I was unaware at first seeing my first encounter was when I was still in elementary school. Now, almost 18, I have researched and what not about the paranormal and who it could be in my house.
So, my first encounter was when I was around 9 years old. I was trying to sleep (it was around 3am) but I just couldn't. Suddenly, I heard this noise that cups make on my counter, and the water dispenser bubbling. However, since I was awake that whole night, I knew it couldn't have been my parents seeing they were right next door to me and I knew for a fact they did not wake up. I was also still an only child at the time. After that happened, I talked to my mom about it. She said that before we bought our house, the previous owner passed away on the porch while shoveling snow. I still believe he is in my house. After that first time with Sal and the water, I sometimes heard footsteps on my ceiling.
Now, Sal has been pretty dormant lately. However, just yesterday, things got weird. My two friends were with each other and my friend Emily was checking her e-mail on her phone. She looked, and there was an e-mail from 1969. No subject. No body. No sender. But the date was legitimately from 1969. So Jenn, my other friend, went to take a picture of it. As soon as she got the shot, the message disappeared. The next day (August 15th) in first hour, Emily and Jenn were going through magazines. It may have been fate or just utter coincidence (however you want to look at it) but the first magazines they looked at talked about events in 1969 and the covers even mentioned 1969. Now do you think it is a coincidence? I think not.
That same night, I was trying to go to bed at a decent hour. Just finishing up a show I recorded, I turned my TV off and went to go to bed. But, there was this really obnoxious clicking noise that I couldn't tell what it was, or where it came from. So I am peering in my room (though it was almost completely dark) when I saw this silhouette on the wall. Now, I was trying not to get freaked out because I didn't want to upset it so I just looked and tried to see if I could see where the "shadow" was coming from, but there was no light source to even cast a shadow. Somewhat nervous, I rolled over and tried to fall asleep.
This next part I am not sure if it correlates with this paranormal experience, but when I went to bed, I had a nightmare. I couldn't tell you the last time I had a nightmare. Or even a dream that I can recall. But, I can remember this nightmare so vividly it's unreal. I could almost feel in this nightmare. I felt my breathing shorten and my heart rate increase as I was sleeping. I awoke very shook up, so I tried calming down. Then I heard a ruckus and my little 5 year old brother couldn't sleep as well. This is strange seeing an atomic bomb could go off and he could sleep through it, yet coincidentally as all this stuff is going on, his sleeping patterns change as well?
I felt the need to finally share my story. I hope you all enjoy, and who knows? Maybe sal will come back soon.
