For the past few weeks now, I haven't been getting much sleep. It all started a few weeks ago. I didn't really think of ghosts or hauntings as a first culprit for things. I usually push it off and say 'It's just your imagination.' I remember someone mentioning though that your instincts are usually correct and you should follow them.
As I go to sleep I find myself waking in the middle of the night. I don't know if it's at the same time every night. I'll try to keep check of that but, I keep feeling as if something is at the foot of my bed, which is a corner of my room. I try to just go back to sleep but the weird thing is I can't. This fear just fills me. My instincts say protect yourself. I find myself sort of glancing towards that area though I try not to give it too much attention and just force myself to sleep. I truly, strongly, felt there was something there watching me.
I dismissed it the first few days as it being my imagination. Just went to sleep normally. The same thing would happen. It happens sporadically, however. Just to mention, I'm a young adult in college. So this kind of thing to me seems a bit childish so this is why I keep dismissing it as my imagination.
It didn't truly bother me until my mother called to me as my little sibling was at school and told me something disturbing. She said "Last night your dad, I heard him get up stomping around in the kitchen and then I asked him, what are you doing? And he said I saw this black shadow type of thing going to her (my) room and I thought it was a person breaking into the house... But it just disappeared." Then my mom continued saying "You know your dad doesn't believe in those things but he won't tell you guys. He doesn't want to scare you."
Oh yeah, I forgot to mention along with this happening. I had a truly bad dream. A dream about death, darkness, and just strange things I actually wouldn't think about going through my day to day life. I'm actually a happy person who likes cute things like flowers... Pinky cute girly stuff. So I would find myself waking up a bit disturbed about that dream. Though, the same night I had that dream is the same night my father saw whatever it was enter my room.
Also a few days later, my father, had these long scratchmark on his stomach. He blamed the cat but honestly our cat never scratches like that. It was deep and more and more scratches kept appearing on his body. In all honesty, to me it seems like that shadow thing was getting back at him for challenging it. My mother thought the same but of course my father didn't believe it. He doesn't believe those things. Though now he is kind of weary of it since my mother told him not to challenge whatever it is. Now the scratches are at least healing and no more is appearing anymore.
Last night I felt it watching me again... Its intentions felt more...stronger. I felt fear. I remember hearing though if you don't give too much attention to whatever it is then it won't keep coming and go away. Hopefully... Though I'm a bit worried now because of my younger sibling who my mother said saw a white figure walking around last week as he was looking straight at it while my parents were in their room watching television. And one thing to note is that my brother has never told anything of him seeing anything such as ghosts or what not. This is the first I ever heard of him claiming he has seen something like that. And now he's a bit scared but he tries not to think about it. So I'm just a bit worried now.
This is a new house... I don't want it to be like our older past one which was really haunted. I've been encountering these things since I was little but this thing watching me at night worries me... As I feel fear as if it will hurt me. Something of which I have rarely felt when I've had past ghost experiences.
