This is both a story and a request for some information. I am really not sure what steps to take regarding this.
I grew up in a little 3 bedroom house in a small town in Colorado. I don't recall having any experiences with any being prior to moving into this house.
My story is about a young man whom my nephew has begun to call Harold. Growing up in the house, I was not aware of "heralds" presence I could only sense an older female and male. I started to become aware of Harold after I moved out of the house and my sister and I started to have our own children. Our Kids range from 8 to 12yrs in age and there are 6 of them... Yepp lots of kids.
The laundry room is in the basement and this is where I feel him most. I really didn't pay much attention to him until my daughter started refusing to go down there without one of her cousins. I have never told my kids about my ghostly experiences while growing up in the house; I really didn't think it was prudent. My daughter and my nephew are the only ones that have seen him.
My daughter was having a brave moment and decided to go downstairs by herself while we were visiting my family and she saw a boy crawl from the laundry room through the family room and then he got up and ran to the restroom. She was reading a book at the time and was not really paying close attention and thought that it was one of her brothers. Being the big sister she proceeded to yell (still thinking that it was one of her bros') to leave her alone, she needed alone time. When she got no response she walked over to the bathroom and alas it was empty, she walked through the entire basement and she was the only one there. Obviously this freaked her out a bit and she ran up the stairs and refused to go down there for the remainder of our 4 day visit.
For some reason every time (and there are several) "Harold" shows himself to my daughter and my nephew, he is crawling on the ground (army style, on his belly) and then he gets up and runs to the bathroom. It's very odd. I have never seen him, so I am trusting my daughter to be honest and not fabricate or embellish her stories.
So my questions are; could this spirit have been dormant for all those years and only became active when the kids were around. Could my daughter be a sensitive?
