I Believe In Ghosts

    This is going to sound

    so weird, but sometimes there's a 'smell' in the wind, and I believe that a ghost is present- it's only happened to me around four times.

    There was one night when I felt something come

    into my room and lay on the bed next to me. I could hear and feel their breathing, but I wasn't afraid. Instead I felt safe in its presence. It felt like I was surrounded in warmth and the rhythm of its breathing put me to sleep.

    I believe in ghosts. What else is there to say?

    I've seen them, heard them and felt their presence. I've only come across good ones and 1 okay one. Never have I come across a bad spirit. And for that, I'm very thankful.

    Has anybody experienced "sleep paralysis"?

    ! Like when you're "awake" and can't move, talk or anything?? I always get these bad nightmares of these figures and they stand right by my bed, and I see them but I can't move or scream.

    Growing up I was always told I was crazy,

    that ghosts don't exist. There have been way to many "coincidences" in my life for me not to believe. My house is haunted, or as my best friends mom says, I'm haunted. And I fully accept that.
