What I'm about to tell you all is what I believe to be real, it's very strange and has no logical explanation other than related, I think, to a supernatural episode. These episodes started when I was about 11/12 years old. I'm now 32, and to be honest I haven't really thought much about them until recently. The first time it happened was when I was a kid. I was just waking up in the morning (you know sometimes when you wake up you have that calmness about you, you're taking in the surroundings still). So I'm just opening my eyes lying in bed, and I'm looking straight ahead in my bedroom. In front of me is the head of an old man with a white beard, that heads floating at the sort of height it would be if it was attached to a body, the man's face was just very observant, his eyes were blinking so it was animated. No real expression just observing. I felt very calm, not frightened, I closed my eyes and thought it be gone when I look again, it wasn't. On a second attempt it disappeared. And that was that, ever since that night, I'd sleep with the covers over my eyes so I couldn't see that area of the room. And of course I eventually sort of forgot about this over the years and passed it off as maybe my imagination.
Until 2 years ago, I hadn't experienced this since that morning. I had a similar episode, I won't go into the detail, because this story will be too long, but this time the face I saw (again just the head) was that of a relative, again I was calm through out the episode... And again not long after, I thought, well... Maybe this is some sort of sleep paralysis, or my mind playing tricks on me coming out of deep sleep.
Okay now's the real bombshell... This has been going on now continuously for the last month, and I'll admit I don't know what to think about it. Me and my wife moved house about a year and a half ago, and there hasn't been anything strange going on until just recently. I had a terrible nightmare one night recently and upon waking in the the middle of the night, realizing it was just a dream, I turned around in the bed facing the wardrobe, and right in front of my eyes is another vision... This time it's like a part of a wooden fence maybe, with a hole in it, with an eye appearing through the fence, the eyes concentrating on me and it's live for sure because it's blinking. I was that tired at the time, that I didn't really react, didn't jump out my bed and start screaming like you think you would, but laid there calmly, I turned my head and went back to sleep...
The following week, again I was awoke after another nightmare. I woke and thought, well that was some evil dream, I turn my head round facing the wardrobe, and this time there's some sort of a scripture, a scroll (long and narrow), etched in black... It was so black that in stood out in the dark room like a light-bulb. This time I was fully aware of what was happening and was more awake than the previous occasion. I put my glasses on (slightly short sighted) to see better and it's still there, even clearer, I couldn't quite make out the letters in the scroll, it was not English, more like symbols, the nearest thing I could make it out to be was like Japanese writing maybe. I laid there and stared at it... I watched it disappear after about 20 seconds, it sort of drifted away from left to right, almost like someone was rubbing it out in sand or on a chalkboard... Now I know your mind can play tricks on you, and even after all these episodes I still believed it was related to sleep patterns or state of mind after sleep. But when I closed my eyes, that scripture I was staring at was etched into my eye (like when you look at a light-bulb and when you close your eyes it's stained on your eye lens). I could still make out the writing, so was this real after all?
Last week, I'm sure it happened again, again I woke up (it's the same cycle, as you can see, when ever I'm seeing these things) I turned to look at this dark object but instead, I was drawn to a more colorful image to its left. It was my Grandfather from what I could tell at the time. He was smiling, I actually called out "are you really there?" (not expecting an answer) and this distant but close voice I could hear, as if it was talking through a pair of headphones to me "yes Paul I am". For some reason I felt relief, and I just went back to sleep.
Last night was my last vision (recently over the space of a month, I have had 4 visions or meetings, whatever you want to call them). Last night was some more scriptures. I have been avoiding looking in the direction of that wardrobe at night these days but for some reason I seem to always get drawn to it when I wake, as if I'm expecting someone. I had the covers right over my face so only a small section of that wall was visible once turning round. And it just happens to be in that corner! This time, last night, I was so aware that I did flinch for a second... It was etched in black again, this time it looked more like a combination of moon symbols? This shape " ( ", it eventually faded away similar to the previous scroll but upwards...
So that's my story so far, I'm not sure if what I'm seeing is real or some kind of Sleep Paralysis... I don't know... Well, I hope you found this interesting, it would be in interesting to know your thoughts about what's been going on here. I'm by far no expert in ghosts and never really took a particular interest until the recent events. Has anyone else experienced anything like this?
