My Bedroom Ghost


I may be crazy, but I believe I have a bedroom ghost. For about 2 years I've lived in a house in Washington and I spent a lot of time in my room. I would always feel as if someone where there by the closet but never paid any real attention to it. Just kind of knew something was there.

Then I moved to another house. (My dad is in the air force.) In my room the presence I feel has sort of gotten stronger and I notice it more. I've also been seeing things ever since I moved to this new house. I have seen a tall boy walk into the middle of my room and then look at me before slowly strolling out as if he were checking on me. All I could see was a black figure of him but I could clearly see him. Then a couple nights before I had seen him again but he was walking in my room and I sat up quickly and gasped. When I did that he turned to look at me and quickly turned and ran from me. I didn't gasp or move last time so maybe I scared him. I told a friend of mine what was happening and she sent me and article about how you can tell if you gave a real ghost. Not sure if it was true or not.

It said ghosts can attach to old things and I just realized I have a bunch of old antiques sitting on a shelf over my closet. Also, they say ghost can have smells and all the time I scent something that smells like cigarettes and beer. Odd enough it's my favorite scent and brings comfort when I do smell it.

Could this possibly mean there is a ghost? I'm unsure and my family has made fun of me for thinking such things. I still think there's a ghost.

I think I would say, it's not the things in your room that have your young male friend coming back, it might be you, he found you so send him to the other side, away to the light is what I mean, remember ghosts are not pets they were people...

Liflin, When you say... You felt this presence get stronger... I detect that you feel it was not threatening, but more noticeable... So to say? I do believe this feeling you had experience, is so so mistaken as something not of good nature!... This feeling is the bridging of two energies in close proximity and the physical transmitters from spiritual feild to body that prickle and sprite the nerve endings of our own flesh and bone... I do believe however!... It was probably intentional and this energy was trying to catch your attention for some reason and they do blush sometimes when their seen in the act, thank you for sharing your story,

oh, by the way guys. This might not have anything to do with it but at night I can sometimes hear voices. I will wake up in the middle of the night to hearing someone talk in my room. I sometimes think its a family member but they're asleep.

yes, I had bought three brass figures from my aunt when I felt the presense start up. I've had others forever but my aunt owns an antique shop and I fell in love with the various iteims she had in there.

Hi there! Your friend could be right if you have a lot of antiques in your place, it could be attached to something. Here in our country, we have a lot of antiques here and as arule of thumb, before the antique gets inside the house, it should be left outside the house for 2 days where the sun can shine on it for most of the day. I don't know what the sun does to the spirit attached to it but they say it works.

I have a question, do you remember the antique that you bought when the feeling of being watched started? It might help you with your situation right now.

Keep us posted.

Have a good day!

Liflin: Well, take comfort that I think what you think! (if that's any comfort at all! 😆)...Maybe he doesn't realize that he can be seen...OR, he saw YOU as an apparition!...Some times our life impaired friends (to borrow a term from whitebuffalo) don't know they've died, and continue to do the things they did while living in this realm... If that's the case, you did scare him when he saw you!...

So after seeing him, you still question whether there's a ghost or not?...Go with what your senses tell you, not what other people think... If your family doesn't believe you, take solace that there are people here you can talk to! 😊

thanks guys. I have talked to him before but never got a true response. But one night after I did the presense seemed to go away and then 3 days later came back.

well I believe in you. I've had the same experience. But it didn't smell beer or cigarettes. Instead it smelled like flowers and expensive perfume and sometimes with a mixture of fish. Whenever I smell the fish it makes me faint! 😆
