Real Ghost Stories

My 1920's Home 3


I have been seeing shadow figures in my hallway, and bedroom at night. I have the bed in my room positioned so the foot is facing the door to the hall. As I lay in bed watching the TV next to the bed or just lying in bed I get a glimpse of a dark black shadow sometimes big as a man but not fully in a human outlined shape more blobbish. I also feel a heavy presence in my room. I have caught weird clear blurry spots in one corner of my room and that is near the foot of my bed. The other corner is where I have my TV next to the closet door.

At night when I'm sleeping I hear cracking like the wood is settling on the antique Chinese cupboard the TV sits on and sometimes sounds like something is in it trying to get out of it. The TV makes the cooling down sounds but the cracking seems to be long after it is shut off like it should have been cooled by then.

I hear noises that come from the closet and sometimes sound like its coming from the laundry room which is behind my closet. I get a dark shadow that stands next to me while I'm in bed I feel the heavy presence of it standing there looking at me and when I look it goes away.

I have felt a cold spot near the foot of my bed when lying on my bed. I have felt some one slightly sit on the foot of the bed before I got my head board and foot board. I have felt the bed jolt a little bit like some one ran into it as they were walking. Just weird really weird!

I recently took the carpet up so I could enjoy the hardwood floors. I see spots on the floor like blood drops that won't wash off. I have recently started research on the people who lived here through the years. I haven gotten far but one family had a child die after an operation, so I want to see if it could be linked to this house.

What stands out to me in these descriptions is the blurry spot you saw. Was it a blur like how the air gets that heat wavey look above the road on a really hot day? Or maybe more like a smudge on glass look? I just thought that was very interesting as I recall reading another story where it talked about how a spirit made the air look when it was trying to manifest itself in his bedroom. See if this matches up to what you saw, it's about the 5th or 6th paragraph from the top:

Hi Marvel no I haven't but I did look online and have found a few in OC and LA area that do investigations for free! So maybe after the holidays I will call them and see if they'd like to come out and look! Iam wondering if they will catch a little or everything like shaows on film and maybe things moving! I don't know maybe they will get a recording of one talking tha'd be cool but then I think scary too!

wow very interesting superstions you have! I m not really that superstious but do have a few I follow. It sounds the same as fung shui not to have the bed near the door. The smell thng is ineresting too, do you know what it means when you smell a bad smell? I haven't smelt the burning smell for awhile. I have only smelt it a couple of times but yes it was like oil or gas and one was like rubber or someting dirty and it was cool to find out two pepople wroked for a rubber co who lived here and three at least who were working for an oil co! The smells was as if someone with say heavy colonge walked by and the smell lingers for a mintue then its gone. Like I said I still have some investigating to do! I have found since I lived here an old wooden block and it has a K on it and my name and daughters name start with k! I found some old marbles too maybe they belong to a girl named Elleonr who died at 6 after an operation and she has the same last name as people who owned this house so I'm going to find out if she was a reletive who lived here and maybe died here I don't know yet! But it is going to be an exciting hobbie to find out! And Thanx for reading and commenting!;) have a tony the tiger day!>^...^<

I think I'm in a haunted house as well. Anyway, what I wanted to tell you is taht in Hawaii we never face the foots of our beds toward the doorway, we believe that it makes it easier for the demons to drag you out. Read my story pacific palisades prankster. I haven't felt anything for awhile though I am just about to go back on overnight shifts...we'll see what happens. Good luck with you're spirits, I can feel you have a very positive energy from here so I'm sure you will be fine. Aloha
