Real Ghost Stories

Black Silhouette


This isn't my story, it's my friend's. He's only 13, he lives with his mum, his two dogs and his two cats, and has experienced multiple paranormal activities. Only about a month ago, I was staying over at his house, I went in the kitchen to feed his dogs and cats when he shouted me in to the front room, "one minute" I replied, but he said it again "come here quick", he sounded terrified so I ran in to see what was wrong.

It was freezing cold in the front room (his mum likes the house really warm so this is really odd), I could even see my breath. My friend was as white as a ghost, "what's up?" I asked, "you looked like you have seen a ghost". "I have", he replied.

"Oh yeah whatever", obviously I didn't believe him, but it was really cold and he looked terrified. All of a sudden, one of his dogs started barking so I went to see what was wrong and there was a black silhouette of a man standing next to the side door. I picked up a pan and approached the figure then it disappeared.

My friend has complained about feeling like his being choked, but no one is there, which I now believe him about. He really wants some advice on how to get rid of these or this spirits.

Try saying a prayer that goes along with your religion. Or just plain off tell it to go away and that it's not welcome. I've done that before, and it's worked. But I still might try a prayer first. Maybe do some research so you can find out what's doing this.

Perhaps there is some truth to the show and manga Bleach: that only people with high spiritual power can see spirits. If purifying the house and such doesn't ward away the shadow spirit, perhaps your friend and his mom should move to another house. Spirits persistantly stay within houses that have been built where they were buried or where they died. Also, your friend should try not to anger the spirit, for a spirit's wrath can be a terrible thing.

Don't yell at them. Don't try and force them to do anything. You will only get the opposite results. Speak to them as if they are living and ask them to leave. Don't antagonize them. Your friends parents could ask the church they are associated with to do a blessing on the home or they could do a smudging ceremony on the home. Good luck to you and your friend.

Peace, Love, and Luck be with you.

Your friend could ask for the help of a priest. They can bless the house, and this could drive the spirit away. But until then, tell him to yell at the ghosts. Tell them to "Leave me alone!" That usually works. ;)
