Black Lady


I have lots of paranormal experiences in the past but this one really stood out.

This happened in my room during the wee hours of the morning.

I am sharing my room with our maids which I absolutely hate but that time I was really thankful. Anyway, it was about 2:50am when I suddenly woke up. I felt cold (colder than usual), I felt as if someone was touching my face. I felt cold fingers run down my cheeks. I was still groggy that it did not register immediately to me. My immediate reaction was to check my cell phone to know what time was it.

I still could not figure out why I woke up because I did not feel I need to go to the bathroom. That is when I finally look at the left side of my bed and to my surprise I saw a woman in black. I thought it was one of our maids who woken up to go to the bathroom. So I immediately looked at their bed if one of them is missing and to my horror they were both there sleeping. I got really scared. I froze and just looked at the figure feeling that I'm imagining the whole thing so I close my eyes. To my horror it was still there.

It was women base from the figure it. The ghost's shoulder were high (like she has an asthma and having a hard time breathing) but all I know she was staring at me also. I screamed and fell down the bed scrapping my arm. I jumped at the bed of our maids. The figure of the woman was shocked by how I reacted. I saw the figure moving up and down the aisle of my bed like she was scared also. I screamed to one of the maids to open the lights. There was a long debate between the two maids who would open the light until finally one did open the lights.

After that experience I could not sleep unless the lights are open fearing the black woman would appear yet again.

maybe that ghost doesn't know that she's dead... Maybe she died long time ago but time is not a matter for those spirits... They still confused...

dre, siguro try mong kausapin muna yung blacklady
Malay mo may kailangan o may sasabihing importante sayo
Sabi nila karamihan daw ng blacklady ay masama
Pero kung wala namang masamang ginawa sayo minsan daw may mensahe para sayo

So did you talked to her? I felt that she really likes to get up close and personal with me. I believe she was touching my hair almost like grabbing it last night.

Maybe you should try talking to her. When the first ghost came in my house it was a black lady. At first I was scared but she kept coming every night and she was appearing closer and closer to me as she wanted to tell/show me something. But yea don't be afraid talk to her.

Good Luck ❤

Yeah, Black ladies as they say here in the Philippines are evil ghosts and will hurt the people that they encounter. As a kid, I heard many stories about black ladies, black figures and the like that it was imprinted on me and just the thought of those things scares the hell out of me. 😭

If I was you when that encounter with the black lady happened, I would surely get scared and do what you did too. Here in the Philippines, the thought of ghost black ladies are really scary. It also sounds really creepy that she touched your face with her cold fingers! Whoah! That would surely scare me to death. 😨

Well,thanks for sharing this experience of yours with us! 😊

Thanks for the post guys. I don't think I have the guts to talk to that lady ghost. All I know from the history of our house is that my dad and my mom was one of the first ones who built our house on our village.

Hahaha couldn't blame me for being scared. I hated having a slightly open sixth sense. I experience a lot of huntings but this really scared me because she was really close and she was touching me. 😜

Man, these night attacks people get are scary. Good story Zorro, fair play for sharing it with us all. Sounds like a ghost all right, but there is something that stood out in your story that got my attention. You mention that the black lady looked almost as scared as you, I have read before in a book about ghost of a similar incident where the ghost looked just as scared or puzzled as the person it has confronted, but what happened in the case was that the witness entered a Time Slip.

So if that was what had happened the person who was having a time slip they may in fact end up being the ghost by slipping breifly into the past. Time Slips stories are fascinating, there even stories of people slipping into the future getting a glmpse of what's to come. Probably not a time slip, if is a ghost the black lady needs your help... Reach out to her... Help her.

All the best Zorro.

Interesting I have the ET suprise scene in my head and imagining the scene like that almost,

Sounds creepy but Investigate it could be worth your while in helping a restless spirit to peace and you being able to sleep with the lights off.

Don't be scared. She got to be a harmless soul. Why not try to ask her what she wants? You may help her to see the light.

Maybe look more into who it could be

scary to wake up to such things huh?. But I think this was only a poor lost soul, so don't think about it too much, hopefuly this person can somehow find her way into the light.
Thank you for the story. God bless.:]

OH ZORRO! Why were you scared!? I could tell that the black lady wasn't going to hurt you. Maybe she was an old family member of yours.

It might be possible she doesn't know she's dead. Since she acted scared too, she might of been scared in the first place and your reaction didn't help. I don't know, you should try to see her again, and try to find out more about her. I get the feeling that their is nothing evil or bad about her, black doesn't symbolize evil. Like Max31959 said, maybe she only comes on certain nights. She may have been a maid from the past, and if she does only come on certain nights, that may explain why you only saw her once. If that was the first time, which I assume it was.

in the Philippines we used to have stories like white lady, red lady and like this one, black lady. You should at least try to talk with it. Looking forward to hear more from you.

You should try sleeping with the light off, maybe she comes on certain nights, the only way to get more information about her is to try to see her again. You should also check out the history of your house, and any old items in it.

Thats scary. But you shouldn't worry too much really. Just relax the next time you see her and try and ask who she is if your not too frightened, I wish you luck, Katherine
