I had been interested in the paranormal since I was only 10, watching documentaries, but I never thought about being haunted myself. My house I was sure was not haunted, but 2 years ago I started waking up in the night. Mostly between 2-5 am and it wasn't until 5-10 minutes after I woke up that something weird would happen. It started out as seeing what I thought was transparent and glowing jellyfish-like floating lights. They were faint not very bright but they were right over my bed. I would back away to get away from them. After every experience I would feel frightened at first then go back to sleep. I would feel calm after that and I didn't want to wake my mother. Later on stranger things happened. I saw a black hand or claw come out of the wall. Then one night before I went to bed something flew off my TV stand, but nothing physical like that ever happened again. Most of what I saw later on would happen as I was trying to fall asleep. I saw a black ball of mist come flying at my face and I screamed. I tried to explain what occurred to my mom back she said I was just crazy. (and she believes in spirits!) These things only seemed too happened once a week.
The weirdest thing I saw was a vision of my oldest cat on the ceiling right where the wall starts. She looked down right into my eyes and it was as clear as looking at my cat during the day! I ran out of bed and asked where Tirga was and she was eating in the kichten! After awhile things went back to normal.
Then about a month ago I was reading in my room when suddenly I could smell a powerful burning smell but is was a unique smell like nothing I have experienced. It was like combination of a sour odor and of burning hair. It was so strong! And it was only in one part of my room (the doorway, my bed and out into the hallway) nowhere else. It was only in this circle and you could step into it and once you stepped out it wasn't there. I asked my mom what she thought and she told me to look for its origin but it didn't have one. I smelled all the electronics and wires but it wasn't near them. It took 30 minutes for it to go away nothing after that. Since then I have been taking care of my grandmother at her house and haven't been at my house to see if anything else happened. My mom hasn't said anything but I am still wondering what that was.
What is it? I own a Ouija board and have used it, but not during these events. Why is it only sometimes? Also, the only person who died in my house was my grandfather in 1997. My family built the house in 1983 in a neighborhood that has been around since the early 70s. I want to know what is happening to me but I don't want to be afraid of what it is.
