Hello everyone. First thread for me. Been reading here for at least 5 years now.
Throughout my life, there have been unexplained events that have occurred to both myself and my family. I have no clue if these are paranormal, extra
terrestrial or what. But the fact is, they are happening. I'll start at the beginning, when I was very young.
My first experience was when I was 2 or 3 years old. I very distinctly remember a black figure in our garage. I remember talking to it and it talking
back. I don't remember what was said, but when I told my grandma about the black figure, she freaked out. She never allowed me in the garage again,
as a child.
Fast forward to the age of 11 or 12. My grandparent moved into a home that was notoriously haunted in the same town and I experienced quite a bit in
that house. One evening, I was sitting on the floor and my grandparents were sitting behind me in their chairs. We were watching TV. Out of nowhere,
we heard someone yell from the basement and then a very hard *BANG* on the floor, right under me. The bang happened a couple more times and, as a kid,
it scared the hell out of me. So I moved up onto the couch. About 20 minutes later, the same thing happened. We heard someone yell loudly from the
basement and then *BANG* on the wall behind the couch or maybe from under the couch. My grandpa went downstairs to check it out and nobody was
Another time, in the same home, both of my grandparents had left to go to bingo so I was home alone there (I was still 12 years old). I was watching a
movie or something on TV and got up to get a drink. As I rounded the corner into the kitchen, I could clearly see a female figure in all white. She
turned to her left, my right, and walked straight through the door that leads to the basement. I got my drink and went back into the living room,
scared as hell. While in the living room, I could very clearly hear people having a conversation in the basement. I couldn't hear what they were
saying, but there were two distinct voices going back and forth. Then, I could hear several of the doors opening and closing and water running (there
was a full kitchen and bathroom down there). This scared me enough, that I went out and sat on the porch until my grandparents got home.
A few years later, when I was 15, we moved to another city with my mom and stepdad. This was 1200 miles from where the other activity happened. I had
a single experience in this house, but it will stick with me forever. I never told anyone about it, because already being an awkward teenager, I
didn't want to bring it up. I was sleeping in my room, which was just off of the kitchen. I woke up to go to the bathroom at approximately 2:30AM and
while walking back into my room I hear a quiet but distinct *beepbeep* in the room next to the kitchen. I didn't think much of it, so I kept walking
and when I laid down in my bed, I heard the exact same beep. I went out to see what it could be and as I opened my bedroom door there was a bright
blue light, that filled the room. But something was strange about the light... It only came up to about my waist. Sorta like water, but it was a
light. I heard the beeping again, so I walked out into the room where it was coming from. The entire space had the same blue light, which seemed to be
emanating from the corner, behind our pool table. As I rounded the pool table to look at it, a blue ball of light shot straight up through the ceiling
of the house and it was gone. Light and all. (No damage to the ceiling.)
At the age of 18 I moved back to the city I grew up in and ended up living with my dad for a few years. While there, I experienced several things.
Mostly little things, like footsteps in the hallway or whispering. One time I was standing in the doorway to my dad's room and his door began to
slowly close. I just assumed it was a draft or breeze and let it bump into me. But the thing is, when it hit me, the door didn't stop. It actually
pushed me out of the way and nearly closed completely on its own. I turned to my dad and said "did you see that?" He says "ya" and keeps going on
with what he was doing. I asked him about the voices and the footsteps and he instantly changes the discussion if I bring it up. Like I said, he
refuses to even acknowledge it.
The experiences completely stopped for 5 years. But since then they have happened more frequently and with more intensity. It all started while I was
at my mom's house visiting, for Thanksgiving dinner. It was just her, my stepdad and myself. She had 3 dogs at the time. We were sitting in the
kitchen (the place to hang out in her house) and talking about stuff we always talk about. I heard a giggling like a small child and I stopped the
conversation. I said "oh, you bought the dogs a Tickle Me Elmo?" Because that is exactly what it sounded like. My mom and stepdad looked at me like
I was nuts, and we went on with our conversation. A few minutes later I heard the same giggle. But this time they heard it too. This was the beginning
of the experiences in this home.
The stories go on and on in this home since then. Electronic devices having batteries drained, objects being thrown around, voices that call us by
name, pets reacting like someone is there, even though we don't see anything and the list goes on and on, to be honest. The two things that stand out
to me the most though, are both related to lights.
My stepdad and I were sitting on their back deck having a beer in the dark, and just BS'ing. He noticed a ball of light moving across the field and
pointed it out to me. My first assumption was that it was a lightning bug. But as it got closer, it was very clearly much much larger than a lightning
bug. It was about the size of a softball. It moved in a straight line, from our right to left and stayed exactly the same height off the ground, at
about 3 feet (just above the weeds/grass growing in the field). We watched it travel a total distance of about 1/4 mile across this field, passing
about 100 feet from us at it's closest. It then made a perfect 90 degree turn and traveled in the direction behind us and went out of our line of
sight behind the corner of the house. When we went through the house to try to see it out front, it was gone.
The most recent thing and also one of the scariest, happened about a week ago. I wasn't there, but my mom and stepdad told me the story. Do you
remember the blue light I said I didn't tell anyone about? They had literally the EXACT same experience last weekend. My stepdad described it exactly
the way I experienced it the first time. The beeping, the blue light that only went about waist high and even the orb of light that shot through the
ceiling right after he spotted it. When I told them I experienced the same thing 20 years ago in our old house, they both turned white as a sheet.
It seems like people that visit these forums are experienced in these things. So I'm just presenting the stories and events as they occurred and
looking for ideas or input on what this all could be. Thanks for reading!
