I was about 6 years old when this all started. My uncle passed away and I was devastated. He was like a father to me so I indeed was very hurt. As I slept in my living room with the other cousins (6 of us) on the floor I heard this noise like someone dragging their feet. I looked down the hallway to see who was up and saw my uncle looking right at me. He smiled and waved and said I love you and disappeared. That was my first experience with seeing my loved ones once they have passed away. Now that was a nice experience that I had. However they were not always so nice...
I was staying at my aunts Apartment in Brooklyn and my Cousin and I were having a sleep over. We both stayed up watching movies and playing games most of the night. Then about 2 or 3am we decided to pass out. So we go to the back room on the king size bed to pass out. As we both lay there falling asleep I heard this very loud bang. We both jumped and were like did you hear that? We were so scared... We of course hid under the blankets. Then we started to hear footsteps. No it didn't seem like they were headed anywhere just really loud footsteps. Well the noises finally stop and we are so scared we run into my Aunts room to sleep with her. I wake up between 6 - 630am to (not quite sure what time it really was but it was still dark out) to use the restroom. I'm still unsure ongoing cause of the current events that had happened earlier in the morning. I got the courage to go and there in the doorway of the restroom was a dark shadowy figure that looked like it was hooded just standing there. I froze like a Popsicle no emotion couldn't scream nothing. Since then this entity spirit whatever you want to call it has followed me everywhere. It created night terrors where I wake up at times screaming. If not I just wake up and sit up in my bed. I used to go to my mom's room and just stand by her bed. She would put me in bed with her or take me back to my bed.
Now the night terrors subsided for a while then I had my father pass and my best friend of 6-7yrs pass away. With all this death the night terrors have returned and caused me to start seeing the hooded figure and other spirits again. It's really weird because now it feels negative and scary, breathing and growling and footsteps that wake me up at night with the terrors.
