I'm 23 years old and from the West Midlands in the U.K. About a year ago I was half sleeping, lying on my side when I felt a huge pressure fall down on me holding me down. I was unable to move my arm. I had my eyes closed but I was fully aware what was going on, I couldn't open my eyes through fear. I believed that someone had broken into my house and was going to attack me. If this wasn't bad enough suddenly I began to hear/feel breathing in my face. I didn't sound human almost dog like with heavy panting. It lasted a few minutes then suddenly stopped and the weight was lifted. I threw my arm back and jumped from the bed in a panic to find that there wasn't anyone in the house. I locked my bedroom door and then a calm spread through my body and I fell soundly to sleep.
A few nights later my Mum happened to mention that she had a strange feeling the night before. When I asked her about this she said that she fell asleep sitting up in bed whilst reading. She was woken up by pressure on her shoulders but she was so scared that she couldn't open her eyes. Then she began to hear what sounded like faint talking in her bedroom and whispering close in her ear. Again she said it lasted for no more that a few minutes.
It isn't the only time anything strange has happened in our house... When my Niece was very small and just started speaking (7 years ago approx.) she was constantly telling someone in the corner of our lounge to be quiet and getting quite angry and frustrated with the person who she was always claiming to be laughing at her. The last time she appeared to see anything was when she ran from our hallway into the lounge telling us that there was a man with 'orange' hair under the stairs. That time she was very scared so I imagine it not to be the entity that was laughing at her previously.
My Gran passed away 3 years ago in early hours of the morning... The night she passed away I was in bed reading a book but was completely distracted by music. I could hear what sounded like an old swing band playing a tune with a man on vocals, and mixed in with all of this I could hear lots of voices like a party going on. I looked out of the window to investigate, thinking that maybe a gathering was happening in our street but I was deadly quiet. I've never heard the song that was being sung before or since! I was woken up early hours by a banging on the door to tell me my Gran had passed away.
All these happenings have been causing me confusion. I really don't know if my house is haunted or that I'm sensitive to spirits?
If anyone has any views please share them with me!
