Well, paranormal board, we meet again!
I have been having an interesting time with my house lately and I figured I would share these recent experiences with all of you. I warn you ahead of
time- this might get long, as I will cover some details that some would think to be a bit unimportant or irrelevant, but which I consider to be quite
relevant. This is not the first time I have encountered things like this. Last year I was experiencing similar things around the same time of year.
The room that I sleep in is in the basement of the house. I have my waterbed, TV, game systems, bird, swords, and a range of other things down there
About a month ago, I pulled my bird out of his cage to let him fly around a bit (he is very good about not flying out of control lately) and he seemed
a bit alarmed. He kept staring off into the corner of the room to the right of my bed, so much so that he wouldn't even look at me despite my silly
actions to garner his attention (he was on my shoulder, by the way). He wouldnt let me bring him near that part of the room. He would just fly away in
a frenzy. Eventually I got him back in his cage. I didnt really think much about this incident until later on (though I did note his odd nature at the
Skip ahead about a week or two later. I am lying down in bed ready to fall asleep. I had just turned the television off and rolled over. A few minutes
later I opened my eyes only to see a dark shape, darker than the darkness around it, moving slightly in the air near that same corner. This was not an
experience too uncommon to me so I brushed it off and went to sleep. I did not mention this to anyone.
To reassure some of you, I know what the reflections of the lights in my room and out of my room do to the shadows in my room. I know if a car is
driving by, etc. etc.
A few nights after this incident, my girlfriend told me that she saw something moving in that same corner in my room. I asked her what it was she saw
and she told me that it looked like 'a shapeless shadow'. This is when my attention really perked up and the paranormal investigator in me came out.
Keep in mind that I had mentioned nothing previously of seeing any dark shapes.
This continues at the same pace for a few nights, when suddenly things take a little turn for the worse. One night I woke up to her wimpering and
muttering, "Leave us alone..." over and over again under her breath. She said not only could she see it but it was now not just staying in this
corner and was hovering very close to her above the bed (still more to the direction of that corner).
The night right after that was when it seems to have started to be able to interact with things in the room. I awoke from a dream (a dream that turned
into what felt like a nightmare that woke me up almost immediately) with a sensation of dread. I could not move and I knew immediately that I was
experiencing sleep paralysis. I was not really afraid of it as it has happened to me before. Then I could feel and see my blanket being pulled off of
my right shoulder slowly. Finally I snapped out of it and was able to move, so I looked to see if my girlfriend had been shifting in the bed and
moving the blanket. To my surprise, she had already left for work (as she works very early). I processed this in my head for a minute, and was
interrupted by the feeling of someone watching. I could see nothing there in the corner, where the feeling was coming from, not even a shadow. I
tossed the blanket over my head and fell asleep.
The next night my girlfriend woke me up because she had been hearing foot steps above us. She had checked several times to see if the people sleeping
up there were still asleep, which they were, and would still hear foot steps as soon as she came back down.
Last night I experienced the most morbid and disturbing dream I have ever experienced in my life, for no reason. No scary movies or wicked thoughts.
It was so outlandishly weird and disgusting that I am still bothered by it hours after waking up as though I had just woken up.
This is what has been happening in my house lately. Any thoughts, everyone?
