Hi all, I'm a noob here and I've decided that before I get too involved reading all your experiences and stories, I'd tell you mine.
These occurances are all fact, however, I cannot say that they are real.
I've only experienced the paranormal twice in my life and they've both happened between the ages of 3 and 5... Exact age, I cannot tell you, I'd be lying if I did, and which one came first, I cannot tell you either (They happened way too long ago to remember the exact details, so yes, you may think that my mind has conjured up these graphic images, however, I remember the happenings as though they were yesterday.
I remember sleeping over at my Grandmothers house. My mom used to let me stay there after creche as she'd sometime work night shifts too.
My gran and I were sleeping in here bed, where my grandfather was, I honestly cannot remember.
All I remember is that I woke up in the early hours of the morning, my granny fast asleep next to me, and I looked up to see this dark shadowy figure at the foot of the bed. I have no idea if this figure was an image from a dream I was having, nor do I know if what I saw was infact real... but I do remember the feeling I got. It was like I was paralyzed with fear. I couldn't move, I couldn't speak, all I could do was close my eyes and pray that it would dissappear. I cannot tell you if it dissapeared or not as I actually fell asleep again.
Just to give you a little of my experience at my gran's place... I never felt comfortable there (Not even when I grew older)
I remember (when I got too big to sleep inbetween my gran and grandad) sleeping on the couch in the lounge.... I used to have such nightmares, and re-occuring ones too... I used to dream that a skeleton biker would chase me around my grans house and into the garden, he'd then corner me in the spare room and I wouldn't be able to scream because I was too scared. The freakiest thing of all was that I'd only have this dream when I slept on the couch. Now this all happened as I say many years ago, and I haven't had that dream since I stopped sleeping over.
The next occurance I about to tell you I'm still a little uncertain about as I cannot be sure of what I saw either.
My mom and I were living in a block of flats which had an alley next to my bedroom window.
I remember the one night (I have no idea what time it was) I saw 2 figures walk past my bedroom window... Scared witless, I ran to my mother screaming "Mommy, there are ghosts outside my bedroom"
To say the least, I didn't sleep in my room that night. Anyway, back on track, my mother went outside to investigate and came back telling me it was only the homeless looking for shelter in the alleyway.
To get to the point, I didn't feel comfortable with this explaination for a good many years, so last year I actually asked my mother again what was outside my window that night. The only answer she could give me was that the alley was a dead end and it was impossible for those two "people" to have gone anywhere without her seeing them (She saw nothing)
I know this is getting a bit long, but I thought I'd share with you one more story.
I remember having this dream when I was between the ages of 9 and 13
It was a re-occuring one and went like this
I would be on a train chasing a demon. He was small, leprachaun like and dark. He had this knife in his hand and used to chase me too, then just before I woke up, he would stab me in the back, causing me to wake up with a pain in my back.
That dream used to freak me out more than one could imagine...
Do you think it's possible that if something happens to you in a dream, it might affect your "real" life too?
Thank you so much for reading, I hope I haven't bored you and that you can give some comments/help/guidance etc.
