I have lived at my current home since 2001. Nothing strange has happened until recent years. Three things have happened that are strange to me.
The first experience was around 2006. I was sleeping down stairs my cousin was over and we just usually crashed downstairs where there is a larger TV. He slept on the floor, and I was on the couch. I woke up kind of suddenly, and glanced over at the chair above my cousin. I saw a creature like thing that was all black (then again it was around the hours of 0100-0300 in the morning so it was dark). The thing was twirling its wrist and just stared straight ahead towards a window. I turned my head and focused again and it was gone.
The second experience was scary to me. I was asleep and again I awoke suddenly and saw crouched between my mini fridge and the bookshelf a Native American type figure. It was glowing and had an evil look on its face; it vanished suddenly a few seconds later.
The third experience was another time I awoke and I saw someone in my closet he looked to be asleep but all that registered with me was "home invader." I was enveloped with a sudden overwhelming amount of FEAR- so much fear that as I got out of bed I grabbed my pistol. Suddenly he was not there anymore when I turned back. Are these just hallucinations or something paranormal?
