Taking my Breath Away


One day I woke up to go to school at around 7:00am. I walked to the door and opened it. I stepped through and felt like something had just ran through my body. I couldn't breath for a few moments, and I fell to the ground. I looked around and saw nothing, my house was totally silent and nothing was moving except me. This happened in a house where a lot of strange things had happened to me. I no longer live in that house, but yet I still feel as though someone is watching me.

So what's your explanation of what you think happened? My thoughts are either that I am HAUNTED or it just happens that I live in haunted houses. Or that maybe someone or something is trying to tell me something or trying to protect me from bad things. But whatever it is, sometimes it scares me and at sometimes I feel as though I'm being protected by someone or something. Kind of like the feeling of when your little and your parents try and keep you safe, so that you never get hurt.

So that is my story. Tell me what you think. Thanks.

Well, it could be your guardian angel. Talk to him/her and ask. He/She might know what happened.

When I was in college, I had a very similar experience related to having the breath knocked out of me by an unseen force. However, in my particular experience, it was an evil/demonic force rather than a "ghost..." Still, what you have described is very plausible though.

do any other things happen to you?
or is this the only occurrence
