Figure Of A Man At The Foot Of My Bed


This is just a little story about what type of ghost experiences I've been through.

When I was about 5 years old my parents built a really nice house, this house therefore there should not be kind of paranormal activity. As I recall the first few nights were fine. I shared a room with my sister and I slept well. After about 3 years of living there my oldest sister moved out back into our old house which we still had. So the sister I shared my room with moved out and took my oldest sister's room which left me on my own.

Most nights I was too scared to sleep alone so I usually ended up in my parent's bed.

One night I looked towards the end of the bed where I saw what appeared to be a figure a man with his back towards me. I imagined the figure going away then I'd open my eyes and the figure was still there. The only thing I could think of was it was my grandfather who had died a year ago.

Why would he be scaring me like this? Surely he would be looking over me and not scaring me.

It kind of upset me that this did happen, but maybe there is a reason.

So if you can help me that would be appreciated.

Thank you

were you in some type of sleep paralysis? Or did you feel dread? If so then it is a demon, otherwise I am not sure but you can try testing it by asking if it came from God, if not then tell it to leave in name of God

How odd. When I was five. I had the same thing happen to me. The man I remember was glowing so I could see him perfectly fine in my room. I remember what he looked like and what he was wearing. I've never really talked about it.

It could not be your grandfather at all... I would tell your parents about it or ask your sister who used to room with you if she had witnessed anything.
