Lol, thanks! We have driven by the house a few times, the owner at the time was selling it, and I guess he finally succeeded. I almost thought about
asking the new tenants, but the house is on the way to my mom's place, so I'm usually on my way there.
As for the dreams, they mostly stopped after moving from there, I mean I still have nightmares from time to time, but not usually this where i think
I'm already awake.
I saw someone mention the shadow people. I have an interesting thing to add on that one.
This could all be explained by just a hallucinatory event, because when it happened I had a fairly high fever, and was sick with the flu. I was about
7 or 8 years old, and the flu had hit me upside the head. One night I was trying to rest, and I had a high fever. I don't remember how I got into the
living room, I must have sleepwalked there, strike that, sleep-ran there.
My mom found me running laps from the living room thru our foyer into the kitchen and thru the dining room back in a full circle. She was jogging
along beside me, and trying to get me to stop running. I remember this. She asked me what I was running from, and I looked back in horror, and said
"Don't you see him?" I saw a large black, Victorian looking hearse, drawn by two black horses. The figure that was holding the reins was a shadow
man, I could discern a body, or a face, and he (I only say "he", because he form looked masculine), was wearing a large black hooded cloak. Well, if
you saw this chasing you, you'd run for your life as well!
I remember my mom running along beside me, trying to rationalize with me, saying that I was just sick, and there wasn't anyone there, but I didn't
stop, until she tackled me, and then I screamed, thinking it would catch up and kill me.
I had several other hallucinations with that particular fever. They usually happened before I was going to sleep, and so I dreaded sleeping. In one,
the daffodils my dad bought me to cheer me up came to life.
The other one was also strange. I so wish I had more of a recollection on that one, as it was so weird. I got up, and went to the bathroom. I was only
7 to 8 years old at the time, mind you. As I was sitting in the bathroom, I must have had the urge to go to the desk in the kitchen, pick up a large
yellow legal pad and pen, and return to the bathroom. All I remember is that I felt like I was visited by some type of force. I didn't see anything,
and I fell into a trance state of sorts in which it communicated with me.
Here's the weird part! It showed me the secrets of the universe. It told me things, and I wrote them down on the paper. All I remember about this was
the feeling that I understood everything, and that I was an old soul. It was as if my understanding of the event escaped the confines of a young mind.
I do remember thinking that it all made sense to me.
I must have been in the bathroom for hours, my mom found me there, and put me back to bed. I laid in bed the whole next day, but I was improving, and
the hallucinations stopped.
My mom told me that she found me in the bathroom, and that I had the pad and pen with me. I asked her for them. She told me she threw out the paper! I
asked her what was on it, and she said i had written a bunch of things, but that she couldn't understand any of it, so she threw it away. Ugh! I so
wish to know what I had written that night. Maybe someday I'll try hypnosis and see if I get any answers that way.
I've never had experiences that were quite like that again. Yeah, a few minor hallucinations with fevers later in my childhood, but nothing near
