I am 17 years old and female, for a while I have been aware that the block of flats I live in is very old. I am not sure how old but I do know it has been rebuilt. Due to being bombed in World War 2. I also know an old man lived in our house before us. I have always been very interested with history I find it fascinating, the same with the spiritual world although my knowledge of it is not that great.
My mum and dad told me I used to be terrified of going to sleep, toilet or walk through the hallway on my own. I used to wake up at night screaming, claiming I heard voices or seen shadows in my room. I cannot remember this, but I do remember seeing a figure at various times outside my balcony. From what I can remember I was very scared of it, I remember seeing it as a very tall pitch black shadow like figure. The eyes where gleaming yellow, and no other features could be made out at all. I would describe it as a sort of crow thing, but I'm not sure if it was crow or I thought it was a crow by the way it was standing. I have tried telling my family but all they say is "Sam your imagination has always been amazing, I would love to be able to see what you dream and imagine". Whenever I am alone I feel as though I am being watched, even when I am taking a shower. There is no proof to suggest something is actually there, but I feel it there if that makes sense. Whatever it is I do not like it at all, the feeling is so strong and makes me scared of whatever it is. My brother has said he feels that as well, but I am not sure if he is saying that because I am saying it. The experiences seem to always occur around me, I can open cupboards and things will come flying at me with such a force. I put a mirror down on the kitchen side and about two minutes later it came flying towards me, with such a force that I had to duck it hit the wall and broke. Wind could not have made that happen, the mirror has well did have a metal base.
One night when just me and my dad was still awake I noticed the cupboard in the front room was open, I walked over to it and closed it then sat down. A few minutes later the loudest bang came from inside the cupboard, as if something punched or kicked it from the inside. This made even my dad jump, we opened the cupboard and nothing had fallen. I hear bangs of doors, scratches and sometimes even footsteps in my hallway at night.
I see shadows of people or even people quickly pass doorways, or as if they are standing there watching me and when I look they are gone. Recently I am starting to see this outside, they turn corners and when I get to the corner they have disappeared. Surely if this was people you would see them walking down the road? One time I did see a figure of a little girl sitting down in the hallway, she was in front of my sister's dolls pram. I thought it was my sister, I couldn't make out any features, and she seemed grayish in colour and had two pony tails. I looked at her for a minute, she was sitting there with her legs crossed and head down. She disappeared very quickly so I just shrugged it off as nothing. I have woken up with scratches, bruises and even bite marks. I do not have sharp nails, no pets and nothing heavy or sharp to cause these. When I show my family they say "you probably done it in your sleep," well people biting themselves in their sleep is very new to me. A few occasions I have had sexual dreams, I cannot see the other people in the dreams or if I do I have no memory of what they look like in the morning. But they feel so real, sometimes I wake up and feel someone or something touching me. One night me and my brother decided to film our room, we did see an orb but we got scared and stopped. I did also leave a camera through the night but I lost it coincidently the next morning, so never got to see if anything was caught.
I would just like an explanation to what is going on, why have I been experiencing this for so many years? Is my imagination just running wild like my family think? Am I just a paranoid person? Or am I just being haunted? I have never played O board and never plan to, and I have never tried to contact the spiritual world. I would just like some answers besides my family, who think my imagination is running away with me and I am completely bonkers. I must say I have a feeling right now that something does not want me to post this story.
