Freddy and Ayush,
Before this escalates any further, I'm going to step in.
I think the problem is one of language. Being from India Ayush's native tongue isn't English, although he does very well. However he did use the term 'around' correctly, when it comes to some American slang, as in, "It's around here somewhere" or "She keeps it around her all the time." Around serving as an alternative to the word 'nearby', meaning 'close at hand'. So, what Ayush meant was when the OP goes to bed she should keep a Bible as close to her as possible even sleeping with it.

Also, the girls who took the photos both left about 6 and 3 months ago.
The history of the building was Wikipedia when I last looked. It is in a place in England called Broadstairs. The school was called Charles Dickens school.
Well mate, this is familiar territory. Literally. Thorndon is about a half hour walk from where I live. Indeed I worked in thorndon before switching jobs early last year.

Thorndon is not that big a suburb and only the part that impinges on the city cbd has office buildings and there are not many of those.

I say this because there is a fairly good chance that I know the building you refer to.

Is it a building that was recently renovated before a large government department moved in there towards the end of 2017?

The building I describe is the building I worked in. I first heard rumours of haunting type activity a few months after I left. Locally it is now widely considered haunted.

I don't know for sure if its the building you are talking about but given the locale and timeframe I think it likely.

The building I refer to is a miserable, toxic working environment with extensive workplace bullying and an unusually high degree of corruption for NZ.
The sheer anxiety, fear and stress of so many of the workers creates a massive amount of negative energy there.

Its the sort of environment in which a negative or low vibrational entity would thrive.
If someone were to introduce such an entity to that environment, it would do very well very quickly.
It would be like sneezing into a petri dish.

If someone was to introduce such an entity, it would probably be done in a controlled way and for a specific purpose. As such, I think its fair to say that although many people may sense and have some experience of it, the presence would not constitute an actual threat to anyone other than parties against whom it was specifically targeted.

So if this is the same building and same situation, I doubt that there will be any risk to your safety from it.

Given that its all happened so fast, and given the degree of mistreatment of staff and conflict, I consider it likely that this is an introduced entity. Again that is assuming it's the same building.

Is there some way I can send the OP a pm? Seeing as we are both locals I think a coffee catchup could be of benefit
freaked out fready it's okay when you do sarcasm and nitpickings but you should never make fun of religious things as they are part of our faith
Greetings, Whatdoido, and welcome to YGS.

One of the reasons I like reading lady-glow's suggestions and ideas is that she takes a very positive and reassuring approach to dealing with the unexplained. I would have had a lot more to type tonight, but I agree with her line of thinking.

I tend to like factual analyses and investigative thinking when reading a submitted narrative on YGS. Sometimes my brain makes odd, intuitive leaps without any explanation *why* it has dredged up an idea. I've had to learn to trust this, even if I occasionally make suggestions that seem peculiar.

As I read your narrative, I couldn't shake the notion that you need a bottle of lavender water. If you are allergic to lavender, or you hate the scent, this suggestion will be completely useless. Whoever (whatever) is haunting your offices is desperately seeking attention from a great many people in a short period of time; this can indicate a rapid escalation of activities to generate a lot of fear, shock, surprise, and distrust, which are negative emotions that some spiritual entities seem to feed upon or -at least- draw strength from.

I did not get a particularly religious sense of you from the narrative (sorry if I mis-judged this point), but people have been known to burn incense and/or spray scented water to "cleanse" a location, much as you'd see a Catholic priest use in a blessing ritual. I'm not suggesting that you seek out an exorcist, though! I think you may benefit from having a small spray bottle of lavender water from Amazon (or similar) at your desk, so that you may lightly mist the area with a pleasant-scented spray when activity begins. If you happen to be alone, you may speak to it politely & firmly, along the lines of "you're upsetting me and my friends; please stop trying to surprise us because we're not finding it funny." You could tell it to move on, I suppose, but telling it that its activities are not appreciated may be sufficient.

Again, this is the thought that just dropped into my head as I was reading your narrative; as I couldn't shake it loose, I'm passing it on to you with good intentions. If you choose some other method of dealing with it, that's entirely your decision, but please let us know how you are getting on *especially* if the situation changes.

Best,
Biblio.
Hi Lady-glow,

Yes, when will mankind ever learn? The youth with all their innocence, volunteer so quickly, believing that it will not be them, but the other guy, that gets killed.

Ira never told me if he spoke with others, but he talked a great deal about his family. I feel it was a wonderful time to live, and was full of questions. People were just nicer a hundred years ago.

My best,
Jan
Hello Haven!

My apologies. I should've said 'He hit me'. That didn't go well šŸ˜œ

Thank you for reading my story.
Hello there Bibliothecarius!

It's fine! No offense taken. I honestly can't imagine I said that.

Yeah, you're right. English is not my native language šŸ˜œ still workin' it out.
I honestly don't know. Perhaps it was just only an accident but it can be.

But what is the reason why the apparition showed up, right?

Thanks reading my story ā¤
Welcome to YGS.

Whatdoido - that sounds like a lot of activity and numerous witnesses. Can you think of any event (like the death of a former employee, or an accident at/nearby the building) happening shortly before the activity began?

Based on your narrative, the activity, though unnerving, doesn't seem to be negative. Perhaps someone is just trying to get some attention.

I imagine it would be difficult to bring a paranormal team to the premises, much more to perform a blessing/cleansing of the place but, next time you sense this presence you could try to talk to them acknowledging its existence and asking politely not to disturb you and say a little prayer on their behalf.

"Two people swear they saw a ghostly dog. I would definitely discount that as imagination if not for they were both together and say they saw it on the stairs."

You'd be surprised to know how common is for animals to visit their humans after (the pet's) death!
The dog might hold a clue to who this person was in life.

Please keep us posted.
What a touching and fascinating experience! I wonder if your cousin 'kept in touch' during all those years with any other family member living in Canada... Perhaps sensitivity runs in the maternal side of your family.

War is such a horrible thing, and yet, humankind keeps starting new ones over and over again.

Thanks for sharing.
Take care. ā¤
lady-glow in Jealous Ghost
Welcome to YGS.

Rozita - I have some questions about your brother's experience, perhaps knowing more information could help to figure out what is causing all these disturbances.

How long has he lived in this house? If he moved into this house within the last four years or so, did the activity start right away or did it began some time later? Does he know any history of the house and its previous occupants?
Is he aware if any woman from his past passed away around the time the haunting began? Would it be possible that he rejected a woman in the past triggering her hatred?
Does this negative entity follow his girlfriends around or only attacks them when they are at your brother's place?

In my opinion, it is important to determine if this entity or whatever it is, is attached to the house or to your brother.

Do you know if your brother has asked this entity to stop bothering him?

" Last year we asked a lady someone to pray, and everything was great until he got a serious girlfriend."

Since prayer has helped, perhaps you could ask a religious leader of your faith to perform a blessing of the house, or you could help your brother and do it by yourselves. You might need to do it several times.

What?" And whenever you go to sleep, always keep the holy bible in your bed around your body" like in pulling out all the pages and building a fort around the bed? šŸ¤” šŸ™„ šŸ˜
dear suzy 99, after reading your story one thing is very obvious in my mind that those spirits are not incubus or demons as they haven't tried to harm you physically and how the quoranic and biblic verses and the holy water also didn't affected them as well. So I think those are not evil spirits but something different. Here, I must tell you that I have also experienced a similar kind of incidence 2 years ago when I had visited my village. Then, I also felt some kind of weird touches (which were like light pressures) whenever I covered myself with a blanquet. Usually those thouches didn't go away by themselves unless I resisted and removed my blanquet. Once, I was alone in my village house when I herd a female voice calling my name. Once I also felt that someone was running behind me when I was alone in my village house. But those incidents were limited to only my village. Things become normal when I returned from my village. But as you said, that one is your own house and so you can't leave it. Now, my suggestion is that you should check the vastu shashtra for your house. And whenever you go to sleep, always keep the holy bible in your bed around your body and make a habit of always reading it's verses before going to sleep. And you should also wear a locket of holy cross made of iron. Besides these things try to call priests from nearby churches and request them for performing a healing prayer in your house. Believe me these things can work. And whenever you feel nervous or afraid, always remember you are not alone, GOD is always there with those who need his help. Trust me dear, everything will be fine. My prayers are always with you. God bless... Take care...
Ayush_Milan_333 in The Lady Ghost On Farm
that's a really good story pooja di. Please also tell us something about the appearance of her face, how her face looked liked, did it it looked like the face of a normal woman, or was there something unusual in her face? Did you told your parents about that? I think they must know if that farm was already haunted or any person died there recently, as you said that farm was adjacent to yours one. I will be really glad to see your replies. Anyways, I hope that you must have not seen that woman again! Thanks for sharing.
LightMight in Mini-tornado
Hello Alaviya,

That makes sense that stronger beings would present themselves as bigger whirlwinds. From what I've read so far about Djinns, they are classified as spirits that inhabit earth, who have free will. They can shape shift into either animal or human form, and are not necessarily good or bad (can be neutral, yet influential). There's really so much information to read out there regarding Djinns; there are many broad descriptions of how these spirits present themselves to people, and how they interact, or affect us...

There are a few Native American tribes that believe dust devils, whirlwinds, and tornadoes represent evil spirits that come from underground to disturb the living and create chaos. It's really interesting to me to learn about how different cultures perceive the spirit world in correlation to Earth's natural environment.
BTW, I enjoyed your comment šŸ˜‰
And... Where is this school located?

I know that one of the rules of the site is not to disclose addresses in order to protect the privacy of people but, if the history of this building is already in the internet, it shouldn't be a problem to share the link with us, should it? šŸ¤”

As for the pictures, have you asked any of the girls if they still have them and if they would mind to share them?
You say "my son" not "our son" -Is your girlfriend your son's mother? If not, it could be his mother checking on him - this sort of thing has been reported in cases where the person in question is still very much alive.

Nightlord,
Can you tell me where exactly is your village in Ernakulam? Because even I belong to the same place. Just curious to know.
I have read of another incident that happened in the 70s at the Henley arms Watford. The ODD thing is that both stories by two different people on two different websites (paranormal website) and two different eras were submitted on the same date on each website...spookey...or fake.
Alaviya in Mini-tornado
In Muslim culture we believe that a lot of djinns tend to manifest themselves in the form of whirlwinds. I don't remember it exactly, but my mom told me this year's ago. Stronger beings can appear as bigger whirlwinds too. Djinn again isn't a small category, it stands for everything that's hidden from the human eye, so I don't know what category they r.
Thank you Tace,

I had no idea how many from all sides had to be buried quickly, as the heat, rain, and other all reasons made it cruel not to.
I have encouraged readers to look up Vimy Ridge and learn from the past. I found it shocking, after Casualty of Canada had conversed with me. How many do not know but would care if they learned.

In America we place flowers on or before Memorial Day on our loved ones graves. It would be hard to do that if the grave was empty.
Thank you for sharing your experiences! This touched me, how much our relatives might want to be found!
I like the story, your uncle is brave and I understand that since this is not your first hand experience, you will not be able to provide all the details, you are merely just sharing a story that you were told.

I'd just ignore some comments here asking for details that you obviously will not be able to provide since it was from a long time ago and not your own personal experience. Forget about the Indian style door as well, just let it go. Don't mind them.
Hello Cuddlebear,

I never asked him about the bell, but when I was young I had thought he does the bell, so I would not fear. As if he is telling me heads up!

Thank you for the well wishes, I am having some quiet moments after having the calendar filled and running to various appts.

The big thing in our lives is we had to sell our land because of our health. A message for the old timers that know me, for they know how much the land had meant to us.

Thank you for your kind note, Cuddlebear,

My Best, Jan
Man that is an emotional tale. I can't help but wonder about the bell sounding, is it somehow significant, or is it just to attract your attention, like a phone bell?

I wish you the best with your health struggle.

This may be out of place but the title seemed to me to be the title of a Monty Python sketch... I hope the last brings a smile. Your story did, if a poignant one.

Again be well and at peace.
Good Morning Biblio,

He would talk as if he was young and no time had passed, he wanted me to come to Brunswick and look up his brothers and sister. In reality they would have already been gone for years.

It was not until I received the Descendants Chart, that it came together for me. How sad that my Grandmother had so much family but after marriage, she moved to Lowell Ma and never got back to New Brumswick again. She was gone long before I was born.

The people from Canada have been wonderful, but very slow to get or give information. What had surprised me is the involvement that Canada had in the two World Wars.

I tend to be long winded and the original writing was much longer. My second cousin ___was quite a talker, there was much I had to cut out.

My Best to you,
Jan
Greetings, Jan.
He sounded a bell first, he spoke softly, and he was friendly. I can't help thinking, "How Canadian is *that*?"

It's astonishing that you're now in a position to give him the peace he has sought for the last century. What a privilege!

Best,
Biblio.
Hey, sweetsunshine, I remember you clearly and your other stories as well.

Nice story,
Thanks for sharing!
valkricry in Ghostly Apparitions
Jak_Mangan, I highly suggest you read our Comments Guidelines (link found at the bottom of the page), so that I don't need to delete more of your comments.
Glaziola, thanks for this. It is very interesting. Do you ever get random intense emotions that seem to come from nowhere? Just from your description of the feelings, it sounds like an empathic response possibly. Essentially an empath is someone that takes on the emotional energy of others either directly or through objects or places that that energy has lingered.

On the Nazi front, I remember my grandmothers dagger. It was an SS officers dress dagger with "all for Germany" inscribed in German on the blade and the eagle and swastika on the hilt.
One of my grandmother's brothers brought it back from the war. We kept it in the family as a symbol of the part our family members played in the smiting of the Nazi regime.
I was first shown it when I was about four. I knew nothing of the war or Nazis back then. But I wouldn't touch it. To me the air around it felt heavy and I felt what I would now describe as dread. I remember the feeling well. There was a real ominous feel around it. I think whoever owned must have been someone pretty awful.

Objects can hold an energy. Where there any particular Holocaust artifacts at the museum that would have been at the scene of the atrocities and caught your attention particularly?
Thank you, DarkStar

I had to do a lot of thinking about even writing this, but it was too important not to share.

I finally had an undertanding, I had no idea that Canada alone still had over 11, 000 still missing, with unknown burial sites. Slowly a few are found, then a long time is taken to identify properly, the metal worn when buried helps in knowing the Country they were from. Some have a watch or neck chain that also helps. Canada has impressed me with the records they keep.

DarkStar, you are right, I can't know if this is the end, but he has been quiet for quite a long time, I am thinking he will be content if the is placed with his comrads in Lens France, properly buried. I think it is what he has wanted.

Thank you for your interest.
Jan
Wow. Just...wow. An absolutely incredible experience stretched over a lifetime, with an amazing twist ending... If it is the end.

Just...wow.

DarkStar
Replying to oraclemache, as I understand there are mainly three things for you which is really disturbing and confusing for you... The first one, "how was my uncle able to notice the Locked door in the dark" the second, "why my uncle stayed there despite knowing that was a haunted place" and the third "why did the hotel officials gave a room to my uncle which always used to be locked" now I would keep my views... For your first question I would make it clear that it was not my uncle who noticed the door being automatically locked from inside but it was his colleagues who noticed that his room was locked from inside... And now the answer to your second question is quite simple, he decided to stay there simply because he didn't believed in paranormal stuffs and was in a state of confusion that whatever he witnessed is really true or just his hallucination... And for your last question I would must say that I also don't know the reason behind allocating him such an abandoned place, really sorry about that sir...
Lady glow please forgive me if I offended your feelings anywhere in my comments, my intention was just to make things more clear as I noticed people finding more and more trouble in understanding the incident. I have never tried to force or blame anyone that it's his/her fault in not understanding the story instead I have tried my best to reply to everyone who is finding this story difficult to understand. But what I am seeing, this situation of confusion is just getting worse after each of my comments. First, you were asking about the reason of giving such abandoned room to my uncle to which I explain the situation of him being a student at that place and then you were asking for some links related to this incident to which I replied that its not possible as this incident happened around 15 to 20 years ago. Still it seems to me that the replies that I made were really unsatisfactory and i'm really sorry for that šŸ˜¢. At last I acknowledge that since this is not my personal experience but a story what I discovered so, there are not very accurate evidences which can be added to this story. However this is my very first story here and I have really learnt so many things from your comments which would obviously going to help me in my future posts here in this website šŸ˜Š. Wishing you a good time ahead...
Learning to recognize, to accept and to take responsibility for ones mistakes is part of growing up.

Ayush - why am I under the impression that you are trying to convince the readers that, if we haven't understood your story is our fault and not because there are several questionable and unclear points in your original narrative and subsequent comments?

As tiring as copy-pasting previous comments is getting, I would appreciate if you take a minute to reread one of my points:

"Forgive my little knowledge about Indian legal procedures but, wasn't there a crime scene/forensic investigation and autopsies performed to the bodies?...
...I don't understand what kind, if any, of paranormal event you think your uncle experienced.
Assuming that his dreams had something to do with the last moments of the deceased people, these would point to a violent homicide... And not to a mass suicide. I'm sure that even the most rookie investigators would see the telltale signs pointing to what really happened there."

To which you answered:

"I don't think those officials would ever allow investigators to enter that room as this would spread a rumour which will ultimately ruin their business..."

I don't know if I worded poorly my idea, though I think I made it clear that I'm talking about crime scene/forensic investigators... Why is your answer:

"i've nowhere written that the hotel authorities didn't let the forensic team to let in what i've written is that, in any situation they would never allow any paranormal investigator to get there."?

I guess I don't have anything else to say about your story, I hope the next one will be easier to follow and understand.

Take care.
I have read that dreaming that your significant other cheating is a sign of insecurity. As lady-glow stated, these dreams might be the result of insecurities he is experiencing due to his current situation. He may fear losing you.

As for him physically seeing you, I agree with lady-glow that you might be projecting yourself to him. If not, could he be experiencing sleep paralysis?

If he is open to it, he should look for protective charms just in case. Keeping lapis lazuli or amethyst (there are many other stones out there) under his pillow might help soothe his dreams. Black tourmaline is a great stone for keeping away negativity as well. I wear it all the time. If this goes against his beliefs, every religion has its own means of protection.
I was in Poland and went to Auschwitz Birkenau and felt an overwhelming feeling of sadness and grief. Ended up going to our motel an not doing anything else for the rest of the day. Very exhausting experience... And other death camps I visited and memorials... Never had same type of experience.
Cuddlebear in Hug From A Spirit
Angie ~ Welcome to the community!

I echo much of what Lady-glow has to say. I do have a question though: In your physical encounter you describe your contact as a hug, yet you describe it more as a squeeze - so tight you could not move. You then began to pray. For me a hug is wonderful, loving thing yet you seem not to have been comforted by the "hug" - or am I mis-reading your story?

In any event I too am glad that your encounters have been mostly positive...
Well to tell you the truth, at first I didn't believe, then that turned into being excited about it, like discovering something new... And it was new for me, in a way. Then I've had a tiny feeling that suggested this all may not be as much fun, so I began with my research, finally ended up here, then I spooked around the site, dropped the occasional comment and read many others. Finally I have pieced together a picture about how a simple attachment could start out like this... Small things, and it may never do much more, just start feeding itself off of me... Aaand I guess that's not something anyone would like to have around their life. So I took charge and did a cleansing on myself and the house. Activity stopped, it all feels cleaner in the sense there seems to be a silent oppression missing, a sort that isn't noticed until it's gone and even then you only notice things turned to the better, well a tiny bit at least.:)
hi pinka,
But kali is not evil but infact she is godesses ie female power in her raw form.

He has said he has been practicing satanism... And use of cross. As a hindu when iam readong this story it feels like satan workship and not of kali.

Kali yes I too agree some people use this power for bad things but its not good and its not kali who is doing it... They actually pray to kali and under her power I think these tantriks will falsely make an wondering spirit to do things for them... In return they tell the spirit that they have the power to make them see ir talk with thier loved ones... But these people they simple use these spirits and in the end they also suffer as usually they don't fulfil the spirit wishes. To bring these spirits under control they pray to maa kali
Ayush Milan,
I stopped to comment for a couple of reasons. I understand being defensive. I have found it best to lay down clear boundaries in my telling and when responding to comments. Some things are not up for debate. My son's death for example. However, there are comments that readers may make that I see as an opportunity to improve upon my writing vs being offended or feeling attacked. If your story is true, you should not allow it to get to you. Simply answer the questions and matter of factly. See it as a chance to learn.

I am impressed with your writing style. I do very much like it. Here are a couple of key points I would suggest changing in any later reproductions of your work somewhere else, and I do hope you publish it other places. It is a very good story.

In reference to this: "Now, he was asleep, but, he suddenly woke up and found himself in sleep paralysis. He could not move his body, even he was not able to utter a single word from his mouth. His body was full of sweat and his heart was beating like a drum. He noticed that the lights were switched off and the door was locked from inside by itself (as he clearly remembered that he had turned on the lights and had also kept the door unlocked). But, the worst thing was, that he was feeling that someone was continuously moving around his bed. He was trying very hard to hold his cellphone, but he was completely paralyzed."

Excellent use of physical description to convey terror. My concern, however, is It is quite difficult to see that the door is locked from the inside according to the way you write it. I am familiar with the lock and style you reference. You say he is in a state of sleep paralysis, and that the lights are now switched off. How can he see in the dark across to the other door and see that it is locked when he can't even lift his dead to view it through the inky blackness, not to mention he is in the dark. Lastly, why is he trying to hold his cell phone? If he went to sleep with it in his hand that is odd, but just clarify that when you write it for another publication.

The story falls apart a bit when you move into the 2nd and 3rd night. The second night, okay he wasn't scared off. But has been now warned of death by something on his chest. Need to maybe ask uncle and give a more detailed account of his motivation.

Lastly, it is not common to provide a room for someone that has always been locked. Your story completely falls apart there. It matters not what country of origin, it makes no sense. Maybe say if he had the key but it didn't work on the lock. That would be a passable reason.
My dear these are holes in your story that when you publicize it again, it will be picked apart. I believe you that you believe it is true, so I am trying to help by offering up what needs to be improved upon to fix the skeptical voices in the room from picking you apart. This is a very kind and understanding group. Everyone is asking trying to help and we do respect you. I think you are a very good writer my friend; a very good writer indeed. So go easy on us. We are your friend, I assure you.
Welcome, and I hope to see more from you soon.
My apologies if I caused any offence Lady glow, that was not intended
RSA chick, haven't you ever herd about external locks which are put in handle of doors, gates, vans and shutters? So, this was the same lock which was broken by my uncle hence the door's knob was actually unaffected and it was the external lock which got broken. However, if you are still confused about the structure of an external lock, then, kindly search 'link locks' on google.
Poojabose in Kashi Milli
I never heard about Kashi milli ever šŸ˜•
What is that explain!
lady glow i've nowhere written that the hotel authorities didn't let the forensic team to let in what i've written is that, in any situation they would never allow any paranormal investigator to get there. And after all these all information about mysterious deaths were given by the hotel manager so, actually even my uncle wasn't convinced by the manager and that was the reason that made him to stay there for remaining period. So finding the actual links about those deaths is quite difficult as this incident happened around 2002 or 2003. That's why finding the appropriate links isn't possible. But, if you wish, I can give you the link of facebook profile page of my uncle, so you can visit there and confirm that this is a true incident which happened to him. Your reply is appreciable...
2nd1st- thanks for your input though, in this instance, I wasn't talking about ghosts in the room but about the fact that the deaths seem not to have been reported to the police or, if they were, the hotel staff wouldn't let the forensics team enter the room and do their job.
At least that's how I understand the OP's comment.

I have no problem understanding the 'need' to deny/hide paranormal activity, but hiding multiple deaths and getting away with it is a bit hard for me to take since someone would be bound to look for a missing loved one (or more). šŸ¤”

As a side note and in response to your experience with the broken lock at that hotel, - how terrible, they deserve a very bad review!
The worst thing that has happened to me was to have to wait 45 minutes for a front desk attendant to figure out how to calculate the 10% tax due on my bill...grrrr! šŸ˜ 

Anyway, it's nice seeing some participation going on... YGS has been too quiet of lately.
Had Lady glow, as for sweeping things under the rug to control rumors, I actually have a situation near me where that very thing is happening. In this case no deaths or disappearances yet but a highly active site. Staff are being told not to talk about it, managers are telling staff they are just being stupid no such thing as ghosts, even though some of those same staff have had encounters. This is the head office of s major government agency and they are trying very hard to stop the rumour getting into the public space.
Ayush - with all due respect I'm going to suggest for you to include as much information as possible in any future narrative. If you read your story carefully you will see that there's nothing hinting to how long ago these events happened, only that they took place when he was still a student.

I understand that, like me, English is not your first language and know how frustrating it can be to put ones ideas into words. I think that you are doing great expressing your thoughts and are doing your best trying to explain/answer our questions, but adding more details to the original narrative would have helped to focus only on the paranormal contents of the experience.

I find your following statement really disturbing:

"I don't think those officials would ever allow investigators to enter that room as this would spread a rumour which will ultimately ruin their business..."

I really hope that the death and disappearance of several people wouldn't go unreported and that the staff of the hotel did more than just 'sweeping the dirt under the rug' in order to keep the business running... What could have they done to hide and dispose of the bodies?!?! (shivers!)

I guess this is not the place to discuss such topic.
I signed up because I just saw this same figure in my dream last night. I have frequent dreams (at least of the ones that I can remember) that I am back in my childhood home, always in my room, with my grandmothers room next to mine. In these dreams her room is always vacant though, she is never there. It was night and I was looking out the window, and all of a sudden this figure showed up in the window. The windows in the room were full length windows that were basically doors with a huge pane of glass on them. The figure was towards the bottom of the window so it must have been very short. It was entirely black but with a porcelain white mask. I fell back scrambling and it sat there in the window staring at me for about 5 seconds before dissipating into the air, in a kind of electrical looking mist. Seconds later it reappeared inches from my face. I can tell it was porcelain because a moment later it was inches from my face. I could tell the mask was some type of porcelain because it was extremely smooth but I could see the texture on it when it came close.
So I just saw the same thing. But mine was more solid. I work at Walmart and it was staring at me. 6/24/19 I live in Oklahoma.
Ayush, sorry for nitpicking about the lock, but your link to the video about the Indian style door does not shed much more light.
It is a style of door lock common in my country also.
There may be two handles, one inside, one outside, but still only one locking mechanism that can be accessed with the same key from both sides.
If your uncle damaged the lock from outside, the entire locking mechanism would most likely be damaged.

I think we are misunderstanding some of the details as this is a second-hand account of what happened.
You should instead relay your own experiences on this site. It will be easier to remember details and to answer questions.

As you rightly say, this happened 15 - 20 years ago. Finding articles or remembering details (even from your uncle), will be difficult.

We look forward to reading your own stories.

Hello Biblio,

I'm leaning more and more toward the idea of this being an elemental, or nature spirit, which follows what both you and RCRuskin have recently suggested. Aside from what you've detailed in your description of the elemental spirits, some of the material I've read about elementals do fit the situational factors (newly developed business zone built over farmland in a growing city). Although, I too find it very strange that it followed me home from my workplace. From what I've gathered in reading, some people believe that elementals are mythical, and some believe that these nature spirits actually exist. I suppose it depends on how 'open' one is to the idea of earthly spirits. I was young, open minded, and have always been a nature lover, so maybe I was vulnerable to this type of experience?

Thanks again for the detailed info. šŸ˜‰ ~ LightMight
Hi, Iowahaunting.

What a scary experience. I watched the movie and liked it very much, I did not know the bridge was haunted. I will look it up later and learn more of the history of the bridge.

Thanks for sharing!
Thanks everyone for sharing your experiences, I do believe that my age had something to do with my inability to see them after a certain point. I thought you may be interested to know that after I posted this, about a week later I was brushing my hair when I was hit by the same sharp smell and taste. I couldn't see anything but it felt like something was watching me. Maybe it was just my imagination after thinking about them after all these years or maybe I'm only now realising that they may be everywhere. I've heard of similar stories like the duwende, but these seem to be more malicious. Of course there's every chance that I could have upset them when I was so young and just don't recall the event.
I think many people are doubting my story. So, dear concerns I just want to say that please kindly mail me privately so I can provide you a link to the Facebook profile page of my uncle...
Unfortunately I am noticing that some people are having trouble in understanding of the working of a typical Indian style door, so I have found this video on YouTube which can help you understand the structure of knob or handle in an Indian style door... Https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=BIVsDwB0CJ4
Lady Glow, as you said, (... I find the need to have a set of two keys to open one door knob not only mysterious but unpractical) it seems to me like you still don't have a proper vision about the working of an Indian style door, let me clarify this... Unlike Western style doors, a typical Indian style door (which is mostly found in Indian houses) generally doesn't contains a single knob but contains manual handles (both inside and outside) means, you don't always have to use a key to lock or unlock the door, i.e., they can be easily handled manually without a key, however if you still found this confusing then simply remember the doors which were shown in the Harry Potter movie, those doors resembles to a typical Indian style door...
And now coming to this, (
Would it be possible to find a link about these mysterious deaths and when they happened? I'm sure that multiple deaths must have made some noise in the local news.) So, if you read my story carefully then you will see that I have mentioned that this incident doesn't happened recently but a long time ago when he was working as a student (probably 15-20 years ago) so, it's quite difficult to get some links or resources for those incidents, hope you understand... Now to this one, (Assuming that his dreams had something to do with the last moments of the deceased people, these would point to a violent homicide), yup! You may be right, but my uncle didn't know the exact reason, after all it was those staffs who told him that there were some people who died mysteriously, so those staffs were the only ones who really know the truth, not my uncle... (I'm sure that even the most rookie investigators would see the telltale signs pointing to what really happened there.) I don't think those officials would ever allow investigators to enter that room as this would spread a rumour which will ultimately ruin their business... (Perhaps he only experienced sleep paralysis and hallucinations, and had a repetitive nightmare after learning that the room was believed to be haunted?
) My uncle had this similar though, that's why he spent more nights at that room to clarify whether it was a hallucination or a real haunting... (I'm not nitpicking at your experience, I just find it fascinating when it is possible to corroborate a paranormal experience with historic facts.) Off course! I also found this fascinating when I herd this for the first time... And now I hope l have done enough to solve your confusions. However if you have any other questions regarding this matter, please feel free to ask them dear...
Thanks again
Ayush
Ayush Thanks for answering my question. It makes sense now. Your uncle sure was brave for staying three nights! Take care and good luck with everything.
Ayush - thanks for replying. It must be frustrating to be treated in such poor manner by hotels' staff just for being a student.

I have always thought about India like the land of mystery... I find the need to have a set of two keys to open one door knob not only mysterious but unpractical... This would be a problem for me if I ever travel to India, I probably would misplace not only one, but the two keys for my room! - At least I would know that carrying a pointy and sharp object would come handy!

Would it be possible to find a link about these mysterious deaths and when they happened? I'm sure that multiple deaths must have made some noise in the local news.
When did they happen? It should be easy to find this information since the events occurred about a month prior to your uncle's stay at the hotel.
I have been google searching for possible information about your narrative and found this: https://www.telegraphindia.com/states/north-east/four-dead-in-guwahati-hotel/cid/1419744 https://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/city/guwahati/Hotel-suicide-Key-accused-arrested-in-Dibrugarh/articleshow/54496697.cms

The hotel in the previous links isn't 'The Taj', but if this made it to the news I don't see why the case at your uncle's hotel shouldn't leave a trace.

"it was most probably a suicide but know one really known how they died,"

Forgive my little knowledge about Indian legal procedures but, wasn't there a crime scene/forensic investigation and autopsies performed to the bodies?
Were not there any relatives asking questions about the way their loved ones died?

To be honest, I don't understand what kind, if any, of paranormal event you think your uncle experienced.
Assuming that his dreams had something to do with the last moments of the deceased people, these would point to a violent homicide ("we had already warned you to not come back here again, but you still managed to come back again! Now as per as our warning we are going to kill you this time, now we're going to kill you!") and not to a mass suicide. I'm sure that even the most rookie investigators would see the telltale signs pointing to what really happened there.

Perhaps he only experienced sleep paralysis and hallucinations, and had a repetitive nightmare after learning that the room was believed to be haunted?

I'm not nitpicking at your experience, I just find it fascinating when it is possible to corroborate a paranormal experience with historic facts.
I am so sorry everyone for taking so long to answer. I don't know if tags work here but going to give it a shot.

I don't know why it has me listed as a young adult. I will go and look at my profile again to see why.
I have never seen Watership down.
My son's best friend would not look in the back seat during the ride because the rabbit was scaring him. My son was driving. He could only glance up and view them in the rearview. When they pulled up to the location to drop them. They turned to tell the men goodbye but no one was there. I apologize for lack of description but it is all that was told to me.
Yes, I have heard stories about ghost hitchhiker, but these guys were at the rave.
Biblio, I don't think I am middle-aged, but I will look at the profile again and list it as such if necessary. I guess it never crossed my mind that it was an issue.

Trentinray okay thank you, then yes that is why I am not 40 yet.
Lucia, it has been quite some time ago on the video game. I will ask my kids if they remember which one it was.

Greetings, LightMight.

I was curious about this series of events, and my thoughts *initially* tended in the same direction as RCRuskin's. In my experience, though, elementals tend to be highly territorial spirits, in that a specific natural landscape or area is *theirs* to patrol, maintain, defend, and cultivate. Sometimes, these nature spirits will remain after the habitat has been "developed" into new housing, highways, and the like, and will announce displeasure at having been supplanted by modern human infrastructure through sabotage or intimidation. Such angry behavior, through, tends to be immediate in manifestation & continues at that site for some time (they seem to experience time on the same level as trees or geology, not in days so much as *eras*). To have one follow you home to appear only once is well outside of "normal" behavior, though not beyond the realm of possibility.

Looking for resources on the idea of elementals presenting as "dust devils" (or Warner Bros.'s Tazmanian Devil), I can only find connections in the realm of Dungeons and Dragons fantasy gaming. Most of the elementals I've studied appear as abnormal, hybrid, over-sized creatures or as manifestations of ambulatory forest life (see D.C. Comics' Swamp Thing, especially as written by Alan Moore). The behavior of the entity as a whirlwind/dust devil calls to mind the Djinn of Islamic lore than it does anything from European or American narratives.

A bunch of my folklore resources are currently locked in my office, so I can't get at them while I'm at home, but nothing from Native American lore leaps to mind. Those that I can find tend to be in the American Southwest, especially in the mythos of assorted desert peoples: the Navajo call dust devils "chiindii" and treat them as dead tribal members who were not buried with proper rites; the "Siwulogi" of Arizona's Sinagua Indians and the "Remolinos" of their Latino neighbors; etc., etc.

The peculiar point about this is that Washington State, where your narrative takes place, is hardly renowned for its deserts. Rainfall, logging industry, Cascade mountains, serial killers, and coffee shops: yes! Broad swaths of desert sands: no.

I'm a longtime student of elementals (like RC, I'm not an expert), but to have one follow you home, wait until morning to surprise you, and then never appear again is really, really odd.

I do hope you've found something in your searches; if you have, please let us know!

Best,
Biblio.
Dear sushantkar, I have read your stories. But why do you think that the story which I narrated are far away from reality? Just because an author is a teenager means he's a juvenile? And when it comes to ygs, I am reading stories from here from five years,so, just because this is my first story here, that does not necessarily mean that I am juvenile or tyro. However, if you are really finding some elements in my story which is not convincing to you then, please let me also know, I would try my best to clarify your doubts... Anyways thanks for joining the thread...
Poojabose, thanks very much for finding my story interesting, and yes! I also had some paranormal experiences, which I would share in my other stories, Anyways, thanks again for joining.
Take Care šŸ˜Š šŸ˜Š šŸ˜Š
Ayush
Dear bandet888, you asked, "May I ask one question? How did the door lock itself if your uncle had broken the lock to get in? Did the lock repair itself" the door about which I mentioned in my story is not a Western style door, but is a type of door which is called Indian style door. A normal Indian style door has handle both inside and outside, i.e., there are two different Lock for both inside and outside. So, my uncle just broken the lock of outside part not the inside one, right... If you want to know much about Indian style doors then, just Google it "Indian style door with a handle" then you will get some clear idea about that incident... And so sorry brother for replying you so late, as I didn't get any mail from your ghost stories about this so I didn't really know that my story was published, hope you understand... Thanks for your comments, take care... ā¤ ā¤ ā¤
Hi lady glow, now I would reply to your 2 nd comment... "I just can not understand that someone would tell him something on the line of "your room is number 'X' but there's no key for it, do whatever is necessary to open it" and that anyone would accept such ludicrous situation.
" As I told you previously my uncle had visited to that hotel as a student not as a guest, so it's very normal for those hotel officials to handover such haunted room to students and not to guests. Maybe you can find this behavior a rude one, but for them behaving to students in such manner is very common thing, at least, here in India... "Do you know if they committed suicide or if it was a murder/suicide case, or if someone else enter their room and kill them, or if all of them perished from illness or some other unfortunate event like carbon monoxide poisoning (to say something)?" lady glow, it was most probably a suicide but know one really known how they died, that's why I have written in my story that they died mysteriously... "Are the events in the following link by any chance related to your uncle's experience?

Https://www.aljazeera.com/news/asia/2008/11/20081127195677350.html"; no, lady glow, these are all different incidents which have nothing to do with my story... "Hello Ayush - to be honest, there are few points I don't understand about your story and would appreciate if you could clarify them. " So, I have done my best to clarify your doubts, thank you... Take care... šŸ˜Š šŸ˜Š šŸ˜Š
Dear lady glow, sorry I didn't have much detail in the above story due to which you are finding some contradictory points. Anyways the answer to your question, "If nobody knew where the key was, why would they send a guest to such room?" I would say, during that time he was still a student of IIM guwhati who was sent to hotel for training, and this type of behavior is very much common especially to the students, so I hope that you understand he was not a guest but a student... And "How did this guy knew such information?" I don't think this is so much information to know his friend just enquired to told him what he herd, that's all... "Do you think one month can be considered a "long time"?" Yes! Off course! Why not? Maybe not that much long but off course a considerable time at all... " it seems like this particular hotel had stopped renting the room ("this was an abandoned room").
" Maybe, but he was just a visitor so he was not told much about that place by the officials... "My point is, I find these events contradictory " now, I hope you get some idea about why my uncle was sent to such a risky place... "Anyway, I'm glad your uncle didn't get hurt during this ordeal." Thanks dear, take your care! ā¤ ā¤ ā¤

Interesting. I had no idea it was haunted. Nicely written story.
[at] lady-glow The link what you have searched and sent is a terror attack that happened in Mumbai. So its not related to the authors uncles experience which he says happened at Guwahati.
This is the first I ever read of something that describes what I am going through. Now I am aware of 'targeted individuals" and "gang stalking"

Although this gives me some sort of relief that someone else is experiencing this, I'm also worried that perhaps I have not lost it and this is somehow real.

It first happened about a year ago, about 3 days straight, the last being the actual real harassment that almost had me take my life. It happened again about 7 months ago which lasted a full 24 hours, this time so very much more intense. I hope you have rid yourself of this and are doing okay. Could you please share something as far as an update? I have trouble every night wondering if this will be the night it comes back. Around the time of the first infestation of this I had been diagnosed with cancer, lost my best friend to suicide, my parents divorcing, fell into deep alcoholism that nearly killed me as well as several other things. I feel like I'm back toward myself before having dropped the terrible behavior that invited this in the first place but I still struggle.
Hi Dennis,
I enjoyed your story, especially the groovy part šŸ˜† Sounds like you had an old groupie from the '60's visiting you ~ at least 'it' had good taste in music! Glad to read that the cleansing worked.
It sounds to me as though the black mist and man in the top hat are the same entity. I think it has been trying to gain entry into your home but has been kept out for whatever reason - maybe the lady in blue, maybe your dog, maybe a previous resident set up some form of wards. If I were you, I might want to firm up those wards - lines of salt are fairly simple and said to be pretty effective.

Also, "Top Hat Man" is a fairly known and commonly occurring entity/phenomenon - search for him on this site and you will find plenty of accounts - he is a bit of a baddie. It would be interesting to see if you find anything similar to what you have experienced.
I was almost 30 before I had my first (and to date only) dream about dying - sure I had experienced nightmares before where something dreadful was happening but I had always awoken before that critical moment. I had always feared that something awful would happen in reality if I died in a dream - I think I was nearly as afraid of dying in a dream as in reality. Then one night it happened. In the dream another woman and I were running from a killer. She stumbled and I knew that when I went back for her, I would have no time to escape. So I got her up, told her to run and with calm that I never would have expected, turned to face my fate. The man threw the knife and it struck me in the neck. I felt the impact, felt the blade go in, felt the blood pumping from the wound, felt my breath leaving my body. But I felt no fear, no panic, only peace. As though I had faced the worst and found it not so fearsome at all. As my surroundings faded, I felt surrounded by presences that I could not see but could feel their welcome and a sense of embrace. As I awoke, they were still there for a few moments as I took in what had happened. Unlike what you experienced, I could not see them only sense their presence but just as you related, they felt distinctly tied to me not my home and their presence gradually faded away.

I think there is more to some dreams than simple synaptic fancies. I think when we let down our guard and surrender control of our minds in sleep, it allows the paranormal a window into our minds. Sure, some dreams are fairly meaningless - the mind blowing off the stress of the day or working through problems etc - but others are, I believe, something more.
I have had six black or black and white cats in my time and I adore them. I heard somewhere that black cats were believed to be able to frighten away evil spirits. Granted, I can't point to where I heard or read it but, just the same, I figured it was worth the mention - as they seem to have always served me quite well in that respect ā¤
lady-glow in Hug From A Spirit
ANGIE - welcome to YGS.

In my opinion, the hugging could have been sleep paralysis, and waking up at the same time could or could not have any significance other than the way your body has adjusted to your job shift. At what time is your shift over? Does this happen during your nights off?
Nevertheless, if you are in doubt, trying a blessing/cleansing of your house according to your personal beliefs wouldn't hurt.

What a better place than a hospital to experience weird events? Do you know if any of your coworkers has sensed the same presence and seen the shadows in the same rooms as you?
Perhaps saying a little prayer and telling this spirit that it's okay to go towards the light where their loved ones are waiting for them would help them to cross over.

I'm glad to hear that these encounters are positive.

Thanks for sharing.
Welcome to YGS.

Hello Fran - this is a very interesting experience though, in my opinion, it would be helpful to get more information in order to get a clearer idea about what this could mean.

First at all, I don't think you are in any danger.

Were you asleep when all this happened? Have you heard anything about out of body experiences? Do you remember what you dreamed that morning/night?
Have you considered the possibility of you visiting your partner in spirit form? This idea might sound over the top, but sometimes our souls can 'travel' out of our body during our sleep.

As for your partner (you don't need to disclose this information), was he under the influence of any medication/drug that could produce hallucinations as a side effect? Would it be possible that his situation is making him afraid of loosing you? Is this the first time he has experienced a visitation from a living person?

Have you been to the shelter?
Is he aware of any deaths at the premises? Has he any enemies among the other residents?

I would suggest for him to keep a journal and register any weird events and, if he is religious, to ask for protection according to his personal beliefs, either by prayers, or a blessing or wearing a blessed religious symbol.

I hope this is helpful, please keep us posted and try not to worry too much. šŸ˜Š
Quick edit: Situation solved by cleansing.

2nd1st, I completely understand, I would be skeptical too. It was pretty late at night but there are a lot of street lights around where I live so I could tell the overall look of a person not incredibly far... Plus I've always had really good vision... And when I looked straight at her smiling face we were only about 10 feet apart so I was extremely aware of what I saw...

Hi Iowahaunting, I have nothing to add but wanted to say that every now and then an experience on this site comes up that really grabs me. Yours is such a one.

Nicely told, It had me there, in all the weirdness, with you.

I may have to check this site out on a cross country trip I am hoping to make later this year. I won't be going in alone mind you.
Hello 22centuryboi,

I know this post is a few years old however, I was drawn to it.

I'm so sorry about the loss of your grandfather. It's very sad you all weren't there.

The atmosphere in his room when you sat on his bed after he passed away is not a coincidence. I believe it was your grandfather.

I'm not an expert in afterlife by any means. I'm always here on YGS asking for help and advice. Regardless, I have had many situations from an early age and I do believe spirits visit us for various reasons.

Thank you for sharing your experiences.

Best wishes,
Miandra

Sleeping-with-steve in Channel Surfing Or Poltergeist?
Hello 22centuryboi,

You asked about my unit:

It's a one bedroom unit in the middle of 2 blocks of units. I'm on the top/1st floor. There are 4 units on my level and 2 units downstairs.

The blocks on either side of me are set out the same way. People have died in the blocks on either side of me.

In my block, on my floor a guy died 2 weeks ago.

In my unit prior to me moving in, the previous tenant died in my unit in the bathroom. He fell and hit his head.

šŸ˜Ø

Over the fence there's 2 more blocks of units on the left and 5 blocks of units on the right. Lots of beautiful trees and a high fence separate the blocks. The trees are full of lorikeets, cockatoo's, magpies and sparrows.

At night there's a family of posseums that go up and down the trees. I sit on the balcony a lot and have a cappuccino and watch the wildlife. It's so beautiful.

I hope that gives you a better picture of the set up.

Best wishes,
Miandra

Sleeping-with-steve in Where Did My Sandals Go?
Hello 22centuryboi,

Thank you for your feedback. Yes, I agree, it's a possibility that I left the sandals outside on that occasion. However, I never do that. I walk straight inside and take them off near the French doors inside.

One of the previous tenants died in my unit. He collapsed and hit his head in my bathroom. Other tenants have died in the blocks next-door on the left to me and on the riggt to me. Just recently, the man right next door to my unit died 2 weeks ago.

If you need to attach a photo just email Martin the webmaster on the email address at the bottom of this page or reply to the email saying your story will be published.

I would take a video of the events but I don't know when it will happen. Once it happens and I get my camera out to video, it will look like I've done it.

If you need to know anything else, please let me know.

Best wishes,

Hmm. šŸ¤”

Time slip events are more my specialty, not that I have any specialty in this area... Just a curiosity. A "picker up of shells on the shore of that great, unknown ocean." -Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Well, he was talking about science at the time.

You saw the same thing in two different locations you report: the office and at home. As Lady Glow points out, something could have followed you.

You weren't on anything likely to cause hallucinations, unless perhaps it had been a stressful day at the office. That might cause you to see things.

"Logic!" said the Professor half to himself. "Why don't they teach logic at these schools? There are only three possibilities. Either your sister is telling lies, or she is mad, or she is telling the truth. You know she doesn't tell lies and it is obvious that she is not mad. For the moment then and unless any further evidence turns up, we must assume that she is telling the truth."
ā€• C.S. Lewis, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe

The experience seems to most closely match encounters with elemental spirits. Guess that some air spirit wondered where the trees went, while visiting your office park, and then followed you home.

If someone knows more, I'm listening.
LightMight in Mini-tornado
hi RCRuskin,

Thank you for commenting
I journal a lot, mostly about my experiences that seem unusual, and this experience was one that I definitely kept notes on because it struck me as profoundly weird. With that being said, I can provide a few more details. I'm not assuming this was a 'haunting' necessarily, but it was certainly unexplained in my opinion.

Aside from the height (3 feet tall from the ground up), it was around maybe 5-6 inches wide at the bottom of the 'tornado', then it gradually grew wider toward the top. I didn't have a tape measure, but my guesstimate would be about 2 feet wide at the top of the funnel shape. So around 3 feet high x 2 feet wide at most.

Something else that struck me as very odd, was that I could see (within the funnel itself) that there appeared to be flashes of sparkly energy inside of it while it was rotating. I didn't 'feel' any presence when it was near me, or at any time when the 2 incidences occurred. The air did feel prickly, much like static energy feels. I'm no expert, but I couldn't really say if 'it' had a consciousness, or not.

The weather during that time, was typically warm and sunny (nothing unusual for that area). Both incidents happened during daylight hours, in fully lit rooms. I was not on medication/drugs, either was my husband to my knowledge, nor were we drinking anything alcoholic. At the time, I was not living in a 'haunted house', there were no strange happenings at that rental home. As for the business park I worked in, it was a newly developed zone, built over orange groves and orchards from what I know of that area.

Anyway, I'm hoping maybe you, or someone else, can shed some light on my experience as to what this thing possibly could've been? šŸ¤”
RCRuskin in Mini-tornado
Hi, Lightmight!

Speedy Gonzalez was not my first thought. Either a dust devil, which is pretty much the same meteorological event as a tornado but on a much smaller scale, or an elemental spirit.

Since I don't think you have strange air vortexes around your TV, I'm inclined towards the second option, but more data would be nice. This was 30 years ago, though, so probably no more data to be had.
the22centuryboi in Where Did My Sandals Go?
Hello Miandra,

Sorry it took me a while to read one of your stories. But you do know what had been happening with me. With regard to the sandals incident, I am not sure it is an entity that is doing it, though I must agree it can be. Something I always think about is reasonable doubt. I remain a skeptic to this day because of it. It is actually possible your mind paints images for you that may not be true. Imagine you always leave your sandals at the same place. That image is imprinted in your mind I bet. But one of those days you happened to leave it outside. The mind plays the image that you left it just by the door like you always do. I have had this happen to me a lot with keys. I keep my keys in one particular place but some days the keys end up on my bed. Though I would have left it at the center table by habit. I believe it could be one of those times. Liked your story. You should record a video of the TV changing channels. Of course critics will not accept that it wasn't you who was doing it. Hope things have gotten better. I would love to know more about where you live. I mean about the house. The layout and the past if possible. Energies in house tend to vary with the layout as well. Do reply. Sorry if I am veering away from the topic, but can you tell me how you attached an image to the story?

Regards,

Prashanth J.

Well, I suppose it's possible that it could've been Speedy; after all, L.A. Is extremely close to Mexico and home to many rodents...
šŸ˜†

As far as I was aware, no one close to me (or my DH) had passed. I don't recall feeling threatened, but more perplexed and definitely creeped out by the second appearance it made.

Thanks for the chuckle!

It probably was Speedy Gonzalez... Or the Tasmanian Devil? šŸ¤”

LightMight - welcome to YGS.

What an interesting experience!
The fact that the little tornado follow you home makes me think that it was trying to get your attention.
Are you aware of any relative or acquaintance passing away around that time?
Shock aside, did the tornado make you feel threatened?

Your experience is so unique that it's hard to say what it could have been, but it seems that it didn't mean any harm to you.

Thanks for sharing.

Hello Rownin and welcome to YGS.

What you experienced fits to a T the description of sleep paralysis.
During sleep, our brain paralizes the body in order to prevent us from 'acting' our dreams and sometimes a person wakes up still under the effects of the paralysis, sometimes hallucinating.
Though scary, it is normal and it goes away after a short time.

Hi there! I'm from the Philippines as well and a huge fan of the game:) The only reason why I happen to read the story is because of the title which I found somehow misleading. I thought that the story was really about the game and all so yea. Anyway, I love the story. I used to hear cries around our house so I can totally relate to this. Looking forward to read more of your stories. Cheers!:)

Hi Iowahaunting,
Great story; I have to applaud you for being brave enough to walk through the bridge a second time! I have one question: did anything strange turn up in the pictures you took that day?
I've heard a few people say the same thing about that museum. I've always wanted to go there. But everyone I know who went keep telling me that they felt lightheaded and sick the whole time there. I'll get there one day.

Incidentally, my daughter went to Auschwitz. She said as soon as she went inside she was overcome with sadness and grief and sickness. Especially while looking at the shoes as well.

I don't totally discount your theory but I just attribute it to the fact that humans leave impressions upon places and things that we touch especially in times of distress. Therefore, our impression will be that much more noticeable if we are in severe distress.
Hi, Glaziola-Nacht

Thank you for sharing this with us. It sounds like you had an empathy experience. I know you said that nothing likes this has ever happened again but have you ever just felt suddenly sad, angry or in pain for no apparent reason? Then just as suddenly as those feeling start they go away? Are you a highly sensitive person? Being an empath or having the ability to feel the emotions and energy of other people can be very overwhelming especially as such a young age. I understand your need for prayer during times when you feel something is "just not right". If it brings comfort to you then you should do it regardless of who is bothered by it. I may not completely agree with what your father told you that day but I 100% understand that this is a way to explain things to a child. I think I would have said the same to any of my children.
