Hello
I had stuff like happen to me. I go for it. I just hate it when it happens at a museum cause I can't always go for it.
I am American from California Los Anagales. My father got a job in North East LA Highland park great little town. Very historical part.
He need something done on the job no brainer type job. It was cleaning a very small addic and I am small. My father new I was looking for the cash. So he ask the lady if I could do it after I got out of class. She agreed very cool lady. I went to the house once with my mother and father to drop off somthing or to pick up somthing can't remember what. When we walk in we got the feeling of an lonely ghost sadden.
Well I came to do the job on a nice spring day. I was thrilled to do it cause it was an older house built in the early 1900's I love homes like that. I started on the job and getting all the old stuff out there. I finaly got every thing out time start vacuming the area.
As I started to vacume I keep getting feeling look there and there. So I did and I found a old pair of 1920s glasses that were broken wish they were not cause I would use them. The time I got the old feeling I got feeling I found an old photo of a family from the 1920s. I keep getting that feeling look here but could not reach it was really heard to get to certain area's. Part of the floor with was the celing to the living room was not proceted. So I had lie on beaming to get to certain area's. My father told me so help god you better not go on the not proceted part. Cause you could fall through and heart your self bad it was a huge fall. The bill he would have oh lord. I had to finsh could not find what the ghost was telling me to find. But she ask about the area how it has changed since she was alive it was a little girls from 20s she scared me a little but I stuck talking her for a bit until I finshed.
I finshed the job late. I did not tell the lady about the ghost but told her about the photo and the glasses. I thought the photo was her family cause her family owned the house for a long time. I showed her the photo and she told me she had no clue it was I ask if I could keep the stuff she said yes so happy. I told my mom and dad that night about what had happen. My father told me go ahead and tell the lady about it she is open. I told her about it and she was thrilled and she told me storys of her own

Great story! A million dollars and a promise of a miracle couldn't have drug me to that beckoning hand! Things like that in peoples houses, have made me use the "outside" facilities a few times. LOL

Hi DARKNESS,wow...I just love this story. This was very interesting to read. I must say the 'bugger that crab' made me laugh as well. We also use 'bogger dit'-bugger it, a lot in Afrikaans. You know what... I tip my hat for you by going to the toilet in that house. I think I would keep in until the first drop comes from my eyes, then I would head for the bushes. It's a good thing you took your beer out... Gee I think one would need a strong' one after seeing a ghost hand waving at you like that.
Thanks for sharing, and sorry I only read it now. I'm glad I didn't miss it.
Take care. Trix.

I hear you loud and clear, it may very well have been residual, the thing is when you walk at a normal pace past this corridor you have probably have 1 second to see down there, now when I was about to walk past it going back outside from the kitchen I was walking at a normal pace but as I mentioned something caught my eye and I have paused to look down there and then witnessed the arm and hand. What are the chances of seeing a residual in that amount of time? Well I suppose as much chance as anyone has of seeing a ghost really lol.

I have seen black shadows the size of a human once or twice in that home walking past the kitchen! Wonder if they reall are intelligent or residual? Hmmm 😕 😊

DARKNESS,

It occurred to after signing off a bit ago that maybe the arm you saw was yet another strong residual... If the hugging lovers was then why not her beckoning her lover into one of the bedrooms... If they loved each other that much the 'energy' from their 'passion' may have allowed many 'events' to be recorded... If the environment allowed for it.

So history and geology homework...it's like school all over again. LoL 😆

Respectfully,

Rook

Rook all good buddy I have noticed you patrolling around lol. Yes I do plan to do some investigating, one of them is up north of our state for a little bit at the moment but when he gets back I will arrange something I will be sure to post it up when I do! 😊
Yeah I nearly dropped the beer but held it together in the end! Lol 😁

Thanks for reading mate! 😊

Sorry been on 'Troll Duty' 😉.

Interesting experience, I may have missed this but are there any plans to research your mates property and or to return and do some follow up investigating?

Thanks Darkness for sharing this freaky experience.

Respectfully,

Rook

PS... Kudos on not dropping the beer... 😆

Taz, Cosmo, Lou: I was wondering when I would hear from you all! 😊 I really wish I had seen the residual of the 2 people hugging, it does seem like a really sweet and special event to have witnessed I'm kind of jealous in a way lol, oh well maybe I might spend more time round there haha. Funny you say save the beers Taz in all honesty it never occured to me whatsoever that maybe that is exactly what it wanted, a beer! Lol, thanks for the addy mate! And cosmo liquid courage did get involved later in the night that is for sure, but alas there was no ghost to be found!😆
Lou those crawling arm movies haha had to laugh mate, can just imagine that thing crawling up the bloody hallway after me, to be safe I might place a beer smack bang in the middle of the hallway floor and see what happens!

Thanks for commenting guys and gals! 😁

Glad I managed to log on to see this one mate 😊
Great post, liked the residual part sounds sweet,
But as for the hand! Mate I would have reacted exactly the same way, bugger finding out what it wanted,
Save the beers 😆 (sorry had to say that)
Anyway get back there and start asking questions.
Loved it, faving it.

Hey Darkness, looks like I am a couple of days late. I can't believe I almost missed this. 😳

Well that would have sent me running in the other direction at first too, saying Hell No spooky ghost arm. 😨 However, after a few drinks of "liquid courage" I would have went to investigate also. 😆

Great story mate! Thanks for sharing it with us.

Dan,
You are the last person I would have ever suspected to turn away from a "Call to Arms". Ha! Good story, mate... As always.
In those crawling arm movies, how in the heck did that thing always leap off the ground to choke people? Were they living in a bounce house, or did this thing recoil like a cobra ready to strike?...ah, maybe it struck a match and used its armpit odor as a propellent...

Nysa: Yes 80cm just over 2 and a half feet it is, the arm and hand honestly it looked normal like mine and yours, but if I go deep into my memory perhaps not as solid in colour more faint in appearance, but definitely visible and definitely there! If it was a normal person you would pretty much expect them to be kneeling in the room? Strange isn't it!😕

Ok now I am really curious about the size issue. Is 80cm about 2 feet? I am terrible at remembering conversions, they threatened to teach us in school, but that never happened. Did the hand seem small like it belonged to a little person or small something? Or more normal sized like someone kneeling or laying on the floor?

HA ha ha yes my social life ghost is now haunting YGS guys 😆

And Dan I know that particular goblin thingie WAS native american, but maybe because we are in aus it could be like a nymph, fae or goblin version of what they had? OR a really cheeky little kid ghost, like the little thing I keep seeing poke its head out from the hallway you know? You said it was probably a little kid but I thought it was too short for that... Thinking out loud here 😉

DragonStorm/Stace yeh that bloody goblin creature, that was just freaky I'm not sure if it was that, they had something to do with native americans didn't they? The hand was that of a humans, just a bit fainter in appearance. Thanks for reading! 😁

Dan When ever you tell this story (or now I read it) I KNOW you did the right thing by walking away from the creepy hand!

You think maybe it's a goblin kind of thingie? Given the height of the hand and all, you remember in Paranormal State there was that odd goblin like creature? Just a thought 😊

As for the residual, that would be VERY interesting to see!

I love reading your stories! 😊

And no guys I'm not dead just working a lot LOL

That movie Miracles was talking about is pretty frightening. I keep trying to recall the title and I came up with two that are probably both incorrect.

"The Beast With Five Fingers"
~~OR~~
"The Crawling Hand"

anneke8: Yes I plan to have a good look into the land and check what was here before it. The house history I will have to ask my mates about I'm sure they have an idea. Thanks for reading! 😊

Teneki:In these type of situations I tend to go on gut instinct and listen to what my body is telling me to do, in this case it was to quickly walk back outside lol. Thank you for reading. 😊

I can honestly say I would have gone and checked out the arm. I have a bad habit of getting drawn to feelings and other signs of events like a moth to a flame. Been chased down an expressway by something because of it too. Funny thing is, I was just stretching out my senses at that point, not looking for anything.

Hahaha Aussie mate I hear what your saying I went on my gut feeling with that one and decided I was not going down there, crap its bad enough sometimes going to the toilet located in that bloody hallway!lol! Probably wise not to bring beers anywhere near it and close the sliding door aswell eh Jav lol!😆 Thanks for reading champ! 😁

Aussie's got something there, mate. They could have got you behind that door just to snipe your refreshing beverages. Then give nothing in return but a hand mark where they slapped you. How do you explain the mess? "It wasn't me who spilled mate. It was them crazy arms back down the hall. They had hands too! Gave me a wallop upside my head is what." 😆 😆 😆

Yes mate, I've had a few of those "buggar that crap" moments myself young matie, I know exactly what you mean... Wow mate, it seems like there some strong energies in that home Darkness, residual or not... It was probably wiser not to follow the waving gesture tempting as it was, could you imagine the door locking behind you upon entering the room it went into and a voice asking you... "why are you drinking all my beer"...😆...good story mate, I really enjoyed it... I wonder if we have any paranormal investigators here in Aus mate, I'm sure they wouldn't be wasting their time in your friends house?

Miracles the one crawling across the floor wasn't out of Adams Family was it?😆

Nysa thank you for reading from what he described to me it was a bluish /white colour I believe this colour stayed constant the whole time he witnessed it. I will ask him again and see if I have missed anything though, that is the sort of residual thing I wished I had seen!😊

Jav, hahaha yes I know the only thing that would have freaked me out a bit more would be if it was a head poking out lol. I know I know to many possibilities as to what the intentions were (if any) but freaky enough I tellya! As I said to Miracles I don't believe anyone has witnessed the hand again but I will catch up with the boys soon and ask again! Thanks for the addy and reading my friend!❤

I might add one more detail I forgot to mention the height that the arm/hand was off the ground was quite small I'm talking like 80cm. So not the normalish height you would see an arm poking out a door! Weird!

Miracles haha I had thought about it quite a bit and was a lil peeved that I didn't go down there but that corridor/hallway has always been a little freaky for some reason, just the vibe it gives off, I know you understand what I mean! 😁

The hand I don't believe has been witnessed again I havnt been over there for approx 3 or so months so will definitely have to ask them again! Thank you for reading my friend! 😊 ❤

Holy crappin' hands in the hallway mate! 😲
What the hell was that all about? I would be creeped out too. Has anyone else seen just the arm and hand thingy?
Oh man, at least they weren't blue, huh? Dang! That's going to stick in my head for a while too. It's just too weird. What are you supposed to do about that freaky business? I mean, I realize it was probably a residual remnant of something. Maybe it's just getting worn down with time? Fading away a little bit here and there until it finally blinks out of sight?
I hope that's all it is. I'd hate to think those things had a purpose in mind. Yikes!
Oh geez! Helping hands? Working hands? Give this guy a hand! Hand me downs? Long arm of the law? Armed and dangerous?
I GOT IT!

Thank you Danny Boy! I love this one! Going straight to my favorites!

Yeah that visual gave me quite a chill too! There is no way this side of Hades I would follow a ghostly person beckoning to me, let alone just an arm. Being somewhat obsessed with symbolism & color associations I am terribly curious about the blueness of the mist. Do you know, once they formed were the figures still bluish?

Darkness - I have to admit, the thought of an unknown hand gesturing for me to come toward it? In a house known for ghostly activity? Nah, I don't think so 😆

Although the curiosity would get the best of me and I'd kick myself later for not checking it out, I just don't know if I'd want to know who, or what, was on the other side of that hand 😆 Too many New Years' Eve horror movies when I was a kid, I think LOL There was one about a hand crawling across the floor that still to this day creeps me out 😨

Okay, all joking aside, has anyone else seen the beckoning hand since you? And I agree, the hugging couple is really sweet.

Hey Granny, yeh at the time it freaked me out a little I didn't want to go check it, sorta reminded me of a hand in horror movie or something gesturing you into a room before you get killed haha!😁 Looking back now I wish I did but you know what would have happened I would have gone down there and taadaaa nothing! Lol! Residual yes, but I do know there is something there intelligent aswell.
The description of the two people hugging was mind blowing though! Thanks Granny! 😁 ❤

Like the sounds you were making in your trek to the fridge and beyond were a trigger of sorts?...I don't know, but I got a kick out of this! 😆

Thank you for posting! ❤
