I seem to have some sort of sensitivity to paranormal activity. I've had it for years but didn't really notice until my late teens. I am highly intuitive and can easily sense people emotions.
My first major experience was when I was 20 years old living with my ex boyfriend. I was very upset because I had just found out he was cheating on me. I was alone at our home and very upset. I just kept crying and then as I opened my eyes I saw a glowing figure, not well defined, kind of fuzzy move towards me and as I started to focus I can make out the image to be that of my grandfather. In an instant, I was petrified. I covered my face with a blanket and when I finally got the courage to pull the blanket off my face, he was gone. My grandfather died when I was 4 years old and I don't remember much of him as a small child. I had to mention to my mom and I described what he was wearing; plaid pajama pants and a light blue robe. My mom freaked out and said don't ever tell me about that again and she said my grandfather always wore plaid pajamas and a blue robe. It's not like I was asking him to appear at that moment. It just happened. That was 14 years ago.
Since then, I've heard my name yelled in my ear. But when I ask others if they heard that, they say no. Like a yell inside my ear. I'm not crazy. It even happened to me while visiting New Orleans. I looked to my left as it was yelled in my left ear and all I saw was the inside of a empty souvenir shop.
A couple of years ago, shortly after my grandmother passed away. My mom said she was looking out her bay window when she saw my grandmother walking behind her in the reflection of the window. My grandmother was using her walker as she did when she was alive. When my mother turned around, she wasn't there. My mom couldn't believe what she saw. Perhaps a residual?
I have a one year old daughter. While I was pregnant with her, I routinely would wake up at 3 am on the dot. Coincidentally, my father passed away from cancer a few months before I became pregnant. Literally, I would wake up from a dead sleep at 3 am for months. It was very frustrating. I would see anything or hear anything. Except for one time. I saw my bed and bedspread dip as if someone was putting weight on it but no one was there. Then I felt as though someone put their hand on my leg. I could feel the blanket and the pressure against my leg. Like a hand wrapped around my shin.
My daughter has lots of toys that on occassion may start lighting up or making noise on their own. I tend to dismiss it except for one time. She has a leap frog piano/instrument bench. We were playing with it and then we walked away. If you press a piano key, it plays a song. After we walked away, it played a piano key song. I said, "if someone is here, can you do that again." And instantly it went off again. then I said out loud, "oh just a coincidence", and then it just kept playing the key over and over at least 12 times. The same song over and over. I was shocked and scared. It hasn't gone off on it's own since.
The other night, I was on my computer surfing the web and next thing you know my office got frigid cold. suddenly the hair on the back of my neck stood up - at least that's what it felt like and the chill wrapped around my right shoulder and right arm. I just said it was my drafty office, but I never get the chill sensation on my neck and arms.
My sister doesn't believe in ghosts. She's very adamant about it. I suppose I understand if you have never had any personal experiences. (or perhaps she's trying to supress) Not sure that I did before it became more concrete. I've come to conclude that its family and my guardian angels visiting. I've been just scared to deal with it. I'm always afraid of opening myself up in fear of attaracting any type of evil spirits. And I hear I shouldn't be scared because evil spirits can feed on that. I'm doing my best to come to terms with my continuing experiences.
